4 College Junior

Academics: I am very pleased with my school's academics. All of my classes have been very intriguing and the workload is manageable. I have been enrolled in the Communication program since I first registered and I couldn't be happier. The range of topics involved within this major provides me with the opportunity to be knowledgeable in many areas while still maintaining the purpose of increasing my communication competence.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The main dining facility offers a variety of options for students to choose from. However, many of these options are fast food, which I try to avoid. I think the school should implement healthier restaurants into the dining hall to encourage students to live a nutritionally sound lifestyle.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus so I can't rate the housing with confidence. However, the dorms that I have visited are quite spacious and well maintained. The social atmosphere is very active with people skateboarding, biking, jogging, etc. Although peaceful at times, campus life seems to be a constant buzz of social engagement and determined students fulfilling their daily duties.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation options are effective and convenient. The recently installed light rail near the campus is great for both local and long distance transportation. The bus system adds yet another option for students to take advantage of with its conveniently located stops throughout campus and around the city. Out of the various transportation possibilities, these two are the most affordable.

3 College Junior

Parking: Campus parking is limited and very expensive. So expensive, in fact, that a ticket received for parking in a restricted space is less costly than an actual permit. However, trying to park off campus can be difficult due to restricted areas and inconvenient locations. This campus is in dire need of more cost effective, convenient parking structures.

2 College Junior

Computers: Many computers aren't in working condiction. It takes a computer quite a long time to log in or off. Printing is quite expensive at about 12 cents for a black and white page. Sometimes the command to add a certian document to the print anywhere profile doesn't register.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants on campus in the union building as well as just near by the campus

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: We're not the number one party school for nothing! Wish I was 21 to go to the bars/clubs on Mill Ave.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Lived at Taylor Place on the downtown phoenix campus. Do not expect to eat well

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of people use pot and pills. Known as the #1 party school, expect lots of alcohol at parties

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is warm and nice all year long. It is so nice to be able to walk around in flip flops all year long if you wanted.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students are involved in everything. There is never a lack of something to do or a form of school involvement that you can become invested in if you wanted.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are decent programs but i have had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with professors who seem to not really care about the fact that they are teaching students and we would like to learn from them .

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is always something to do. Especially if you know where to look.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting in the program is very easy as long as you follow all of the correct steps provided by your advisers. You don't enter the professional program until your junior year to make sure that you fully attend to teach in the future. So, along the first 2 years your advisers will gradually take you on the steps in order to get in the program (email alerts, advising session, workshop where the program is discussed fully).

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Tempe although not big has a pretty decent atmosphere. There is shopping, restaurants, and nightlife all around the campus. Also, Arizona in general offers lots of outdoor sport/recreation activities.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial Aid can be a hassle to some. Make sure that you do everything as soon as you get notice to do it, otherwise you will get holds on your account and might not receive your aid on time.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live at home but I've been to the Barretts dorms and they're really nice!

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The cafeteria area is a nice social place to chat with friends and meet new people. The food at ASU west is fresh and has a variety of foods. The library is a great place to study and as three computer rooms, which means there will always be a computer available.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am currently in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at ASU. The over all program is great and the workload is about average. I haven't been able to go into the classrooms because of work. The online classes give me flexibility and I don't have to worry about driving an extra hour a day to get to school and back. The teachers are responsive and help with the topics they are teaching.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Arizona State University has one of the best education programs in the US but their education program doesn't have all the subjects that a teacher can possibly teach. If you want to get an art teaching degree you have to go to the art college in ASU instead of the teachers college at ASU. Other than that ASU is a college that has a lot of programs, you just have to know where to look.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I'm a vegan so it's important as a college student for me to be able to have a place to get quick, cheap, take-out that suits my diet. The campus at ASU in Tempe fits those needs with various vegetarian and vegan restaurants close by, many of which do delivery. Also, at many of the non-vegetarian restaurants, there are vegan and vegetarian options available because they know that a lot of people in the area are veg. Like Mellow Mushroom--a super famous pizza joint on Mill Avenue that has a bar, great music, TVs, serves meat, but also has vegan cheese options and tofu and tempeh toppings for your sandwiches and pizzas.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a lot of top notch professors here who are widely recognized in their fields. Whenever reading articles on separate websites, it is not uncommon for me to see references--or even studies--from Arizona State. This is most true for the sciences, especially physics, geology, and biology. I have met or seen several famous scientists here.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I was in the School of Life Science and I couldn't have received a better experience. I came into SOLS at a time where they were really working on reforming the structure of their classes and curriculum. The faculty and administration is superb and you won't find such friendly people who are willing to go out of their way to help you--even if they don't know you that well--if they see that you are a hard worker.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The best part of ASU's West campus was that I felt safe most of the time; however, there have been some incidents (mostly at the Tempe campus). Although having ASU Alerts were great, at least I felt safer at the West campus (smaller environment) than in the Tempe campus (college town).

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!
