2 College Senior

Academics: My major is biological sciences and it's just such a difficult major. It contains very time-consuming work and much effort even to simply pass my classes. I know it'll be worth it in the end, but there's just so much information that one needs to know. There many several internships with the major but I haven't gotten to that stage yet.

3 College Senior

Academics: Professors expect students, especially with my major, to read a lot and do all the work or more that they assign. Sometimes information taught to us is unnecessary and just become a waste of time to pay attention to. For the most part, professors and TAs are really good at trying to help students and offer a lot of supplemental websites and videos to understand the information fully.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: I wish there were more restaurants to choose from because having the same food over and over gets boring. I can't say their food's the best, but I have no choice when I'm really hungry on campus sometimes.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Overall, I feel safe walking around campus alone. I see security guards often and don't feel threatened by anyone.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There's always something going on and around campus. They have cultural festivals, farmers' markets, huge shopping centers, various restaurants, parks, clubs, canoeing at Tempe Town Lake, and more. One can never get bored here.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It's a diversity of students at ASU. Many of the guys love to wear urban outfits while others prefer the surfer look. The girls love to wear yoga pants and other comfortable gym wear. There are a ton of romantic relationships and single people. Most people who go here are very outgoing and love to party. However, I've also met those who only work and study hard almost all the time. The majority of students are fit and enjoy repping sun devil gear.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I am not too picky about the dorms just as long as they are close to classes and have enough space. I enjoy it here, but there's always room for improvement.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Students and faculty are only into sports when it comes to football season. Other than that, rarely anyone gets involved.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's intense, but okay and cool.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Depends on the people and area.

3 College Senior

Majors: A lot of papers to write.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Lots of parties, cool events, very preppy.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Difficult to get into, i got into it straight out of high school with my gpa and the classes i took

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Great teachers, great resources, great classes, great study groups

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Never seem to be there when it matters, only for small petty things

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is a place for everyone to go to no matter what they are interested in

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Many different options in every category

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you're in engineering and take a course without an engineering professor, I fell bad for you. They dont care at all how you do in class

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Never realized what is there too busy, and I have a job.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The atmosphere is based on brotherhood/sisterhood and having a great time partying in college. Greek students are viewed as nothing but ignorant kids that do nothing but party.Greek housing isn't available till next year in vista so no answer for that yet.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Its mainly about greek life at ASU. If your not in a fraternity then you won't have as much fun as the greek life. The typical interest in a majority of people is to party, have fun, and barely pass class.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: ASU makes sure everyone feels safe on campus whether you're walking around at noon or 3 a.m. We have blue light stations all around campus. The ASU police are located right on the edge of campus so they are never far when they are needed. We also have a program called Safety Escort which is a student run organization where if you are nervous about walking across campus at night, they will come pick you up and bring you where you need to go free of charge.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The W.P. Carey school of business is very committed to their students success especially in their Accounting program. The work load is manageable and the professors are always there to help whether it's a quick email or going in during their regular office hours. The business buildings are also home to two different tutoring centers for the business students.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: ASU has a ton of resources available to its student to ensure their success. Hayden library is the main area students go to study. It's broken down into different levels that have different accepted noise levels, the higher you go the quieter you must be. Professors are extremely helpful as well as the TA's. They are required to have office hours so that if you need help, they are available to you, even outside of class. Blackboard, our online portal for teachers and student to connect, is helpful on keeping you on track with the class as well as with assignments. Registration for classes is usually easy, you are given a day in which your registration takes place, you go online and can search for the classes you want and register according on how you would like your schedule to go. There are advisors available to you if you want help in picking your classes. There are a bunch of tutoring centers around campus so if you are having trouble understanding the material and your professor for some reason can't help you, they can generally answer any questions you may have.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students at Arizona State don't live on campus after their freshman year. There a variety of student living apartments just off campus that most people live in. There are usually housing fairs during the last few month of the academic year to get people informed of all the options they have. The apartments are much nicer than the dorms. Most come with private bed and baths, luxury amenities and an all around good atmosphere to live. They are very concerned with safety and almost all have their own security.

Arizona State is like no other university in the country. With a large, vibrant, and exciting student body that truly makes the campus unique, there is no arguing that ASU is by any means a boring place to be for the next four years of your life. As soon as you step onto ASU's campus, you will feel the immense amount of positive and exciting energy that gives you sense of belonging. Even though there are so many students around campus, you will be sure to find a niche to call your own. College is the time to find yourself and truly learn who you are as you prepare for the real world. ASU provides the perfect environment to challenge you to make "adult" decisions, and you won't always, but by the end of it all, you will mature into a dedicated individual!

Even though students will struggle with all-nighters, sports practice, parking tickets, and trying to recover from a great night, many of them couldn't ask for anything else. There will be times that you are drowning in homework and studying, but by the end of it all, you will look back and laugh. Your peers help you get through the tough times and make those social outings even more fun. ASU knows how to party hard, but when it comes to crunch time, we pull it off well. The kids here know how to have a great time, the nightlife and social settings are extremely fun, the academics are quite challenging—especially when you apply yourself and take it seriously—but most importantly, students will leave prepared for post-graduation and taking on the world. ASU is a fantastic place to meet new people and a great way to experience life in the great southwest. But don't take my word for it—come on out and experience it for yourself!
