3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is always a place for students to hang out. The best place is at the Memorial Union where there is food and places to study. The library is nice, especially during finals week. It can get crowded but they offer free coffee and snacks for those that are there all night studying. There is a gym that is free if you are an ASU student (technically not since the payment is included in the tuition so why not go there?). There are really cool traditions, especially during homecoming week- my favorite is the lantern walk.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: ASU has a strong business school but the language programs are a little outdated and unhelpful. The facilities are all around nice with some peaceful and unique areas to sit and talk with friends but there is a lot of construction that sometimes is just not needed that makes you wonder where your tax and tuition are going. There are lots of clubs to join as well to meet other people that share the same interests. Campus life is also really nice but again, it's nice if you have friends to hang out with.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The campus life at ASU is amazing. Between 517+ clubs that do things regularly and seemingly infinite Greek Organizations there is much to get involved with. The campus has a regular farmers market during some weeks. Live music happens directly outside of the Student Center on a regular basis. There are also exhibitions and activist groups displaying there beliefs throughout the campus all the time as well.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food available off-campus is awesome, however the neighborhood is somewhat bad. I've had my first car broken into twice, then had it stolen, this is at three different restaurants. My mother also had her car broken into while we were eating after one of my finals. Aside from that they are relatively cheap, and relatively convenient. Almost all of them offer student discounts. However, due to my automobile issues I stopped eating directly off campus so I couldn't tell you what the best restaurants are.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I have always been a challenged student with my grades, in other words I have to work hard for a passing grade.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments in Tempe are kind of expensive if you want to live in a decent one because of the lack of space. There are some pretty nice deals but most of the apartments around campus don't have housing during the Summer which limits the opportunities. There are also limits on leases so that if you need to move out during a month that is not on the lease, you are screwed. The plus side: there is public transportation everywhere. You can either pay for the bus, buy a semester/year long bus pass that is a great deal and can save you money on the lightrail, or take the free neighborhood bus that will still bring you to campus. However, there are a lot of weirdos so you've got to be careful.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a lot of bars that are for 21 and older but there are also a lot of other friendly places since the Tempe Campus is right at Mill Avenue. House parties are still more fun since it's cheaper and the people that you want to be around are there. There are also things to do on campus at night but mostly on Fridays. They show movies that haven't been released on DVD, have bowling discounts, and more.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It gets incredibly hot during Summer and lasts until the end of Fall which makes walking to classes miserable. I prefer the Winter and Spring because the weather is perfect and it makes people want to go outside more. At least the classes are well air-conditioned!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: This is an area of improvement for ASU. There seems to be a great lack of communication in the financial aid office. If you are willing to stand in line, wait on the phone, or wait in an online chat room for answers, then you MAY receive a response.

4 College Junior

Majors: I believe that I have chosen the best major within the business school. I feel like my degree in Accountancy (and another in Finance) will always be relevant and the field will always be hiring. It is a great feeling to be so secure but to also love what I am doing.

5 College Junior

Majors: Through the Accounting Scholars Program, I was matched up with a firm for a spring internship. It was absolutely the best experience I have had so far. The internship was in my future profession of public accounting. It was great pay and I gained a lot of knowledge that I know will be relevant when I have a full time position. Additionally, I earned a full time job offer at this company for when I am done with my Master of Accountancy graduate program.

4 College Junior

Majors: I really enjoyed my undergraduate education at Arizona State University. There is a sense of community within the business school. Also, I was admitted into an accounting program that allowed me to skip taking the GMAT and paying application fees to enter the graduate program. I had a great opportunity to earn an internship position.

4 College Junior

Majors: Accounting is one of the toughest majors in the School of Business to get into. They admit quite a lot of students to the program though. GPA requirements are slightly higher.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Most professors are nice and will work with you if you have any issues as long as you visit during their office hours. However, some of the books or access codes required are a bit too pricey!

4 College Freshman

Academics: It is quite easy to be a business major, however, not too many "fun" activities take place that are major specific. Also, the classes are huge therefore it is hard to really build a connection with the professor.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are quite a few "attractions", if you may, around campus. "A" mountain is a nice place to hike for either pleasure, exercise, or just to get away and think for a while. Tempe Town Lake, which is located about a half a mile from campus, is also very beautiful both at day and night. Another bonus, is that Mill ave, full of restaurants, bars, retail stores and shops is also located right off of campus. Tempe Marketplace is an outdoor shopping mall which is also located about a mile east of campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is quite a variety to choose from, however, there should be MUCH more places that are open 24 hours and accept M&G.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good places to eat around campus both fast food and fine dining. The cost all depends on where you end up going.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off campus housing that is a lot like the dorm life scene. Around the area there are a lot of party scenes so there are a lot of students drinking and being loud all hours of the night.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is no big drug scene on campus. We have campus cops that monitor the students. Outside of campus in the dorms and apartments is a different story.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The dining is alright. It is not the best, but it'll pass.

1 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone there is rude. They are hypocritical and just when you think someone is being nice to you, they turn around and stab you in the back. I've experienced this many times. I have yet to find one sincere person.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The officers tend to always be there at the right moment, somewhat. When they are there they do a great job handling the situation.

3 College Student

Facilities: the staff there are very helpful but on the same note very rude

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: ASU is in the center of Phoenix and there is a lot to do up there

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!
