5 College Junior

Drug Safety: the drug scene at asu is not a major concern here the tempe campus police do a great job on cracking down on illegal drugs and minors in possession asu is a safe place to attend

3 College Junior

Athletics: ASU has a very good sports environment the students love to cheer on all the athletic events and always stay interested in the game or event that is taking place. ASU has outstanding sports facilities and training staff

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Better Than I Expected – Aside from a few hiccups with some of the amenities, living on-campus at Arizona State is an enjoyable experience. Mostly quiet and there's enough space for about anything you want to do.

Weather: Arizona State is in the middle of the Sonoran desert, so it gets quite hot during the spring and summer with the coldest being in the 40's during the winter months. All buildings are air-conditioned and they are pleasant rests from the outside.

4 College Junior

Computers: Up-To-Date and Efficient – The campus computer lab has modern models running the most recent software, and each of them is fast. It's a very efficient way of getting schoolwork done. Crowds are common during the weekdays, but the weekends are often more quiet.

4 College Junior

Majors: Engaging and Intuitive Enough – Taking an English major covers many courses and are all engaging and will cause students to analyze and voice their opinions. It's well suited for people who love to discuss things.

4 College Junior

Majors: The classes are fun and engaging with a variety of electives available for other fields. The professors have a broad history and all have unique teaching styles. Given this is an English major, be ready for a lot of reading and writing.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: At the Arizona State University Tempe Campus, there are more choices than anyone could ask for. Good dining halls, and there plenty of chain restaurants on campus or withing walking distance as well.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: ASU is located in north Tempe. The interesting thing about the Phoenix/Metropolitan area is that you can get to pretty much anywhere with little to no trouble. For example, Scottsdale is right up the road from campus, and anything you want to do can be done in Scottsdale.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am extremely happy with my major program here at ASU. The W.P. Carey school of business is an excellent school, one that I would recommend to anybody. I would definitely go to this school again if necessary. I would love to take what I'm learning here and apply it to my own small business, and continue to grow it into the best company it can be, and W.P. Carey is definitely a great school for business.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I currently do not live on campus. However, several people I know that have lived on campus have given it an excellent review.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have not had an internship as of yet. This is my first semester at Arizona State University, so I haven't had an opportunity for one here yet. However, I know several people who have gotten internships through their various degree programs, and they were all very pleased with them! One of my friends even interned in Washington D.C. over the summer

3 College Junior

Computers: The computers here are nice and up to date. But in between certain class periods it gets quite crowded. It would be convenient to have your own computer at times like these. It isn't mandatory to own your own, you just might have to search around other areas on campus to find an available one. The wifi is very fast and up to speed as well as the internet on each computer.

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home 30 minutes away. The commute isn't bad. Without a parking pass you will have to pay out of pocket quite heftily and that adds up quickly.The best possible options are to buy a cheap annual parking pass and take the shuttle busses to campus. The shuttle busses run every 15 minutes and are free of charge.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I've only attended a few bars on Mill Ave thus far, they were nice but nothing over the top to recieve an A.

5 College Junior

Weather: Its almost always sunny here. The winter is nice because you can do a lot of outdoor activities without freezing.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is slightly expensive unless you are willing to walk a couple blocks away.

5 College Freshman

Computers: They're top of the line and run very quickly. They all seem new and pretty.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: At Arizona State I don't hear much talk about drug usually it's just drinking and smoking. And the campus has recently become tobacco free, therefore we will be seeing much less of the around campus. However i believe people are still going to smoke outside of campus.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The school has a good system for shuttle buses but regarding public transportation it becomes a little bit harder to travel to campus.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: At ASU you will see all types of people. It is the most diverse place I've ever been. It has guy and girls from all around the world, with different background. One thing you see a lot regardless of race or background is that people at Arizona State are very active/fit. There is a large population of good looking, well build guys. And same goes for the girls. You can always see them walking around in yoga pants or running shorts, not just because they are very comfortable but because they are ready to be involved in some kind of exercising activity.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school has started implementing the "walk only zone" in which people have to walk their bicycle or skateboards. It really helps to walk around campus without worrying about getting run over by another student riding their bike. The school has posted signs all over the campus and there are security people letting students know not to ride their bicycles in certain areas.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: the sports are a pretty big deal from what ive observed

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Police only get involved when something serious occurs. Other than that it is pretty layback.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Besides the unbearable heat for a few weeks out of the year the weather at Arizona State is all around great for living in the desert during the school year it is usually not to hot or cold.

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!
