4 College Sophomore

Academics: Am only in my first semester. Have really enjoyed my classes and professors thus far. All willing to go the extra mile to teach and explain. I do think that more is required of students in traditional freshman classes. Definitely some busy work in most classes. Overall a great school, am proud to be a student here

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe on campus. Have not ran into any issues at all. Have not needed held from campus security,but have noticed them out and about. Have left stuff around without fear of theft. No problems walking at night. Well lit. Lots of foot traffic

2 College Student

Parking: Extremely expensive unless you want to ride the bus (from free parking)

3 College Student

Weather: Pretty hot most of the time, however the whether in spring is terrific.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The variety of guys and girls at ASU is massive. Most of the guys are athletic, but the other ones are pretty hipster. The men are totally attractive, and usually very smart! The girls are beautiful! The majority of the school is physically in shape. Its a pretty attractive school. I'm a bio major and the people that share the same major with me are very good looking, contrary to popular belief!

Transportation: ASU has the lightrail, that will go from Mesa to Phoenix and makes stops at and around ASU, so that's helpful. There is a bud called "Flash" that drives students around campus, and a shuttle that drives students to a from each of the campuses, and since there are 4 its really helpful for people who have class on multiple campuses.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of bikers that don't pay much attention, and many times they crash into people. They're not supposed to bike in the crowd but security never stops them (I've actually never seen the security.) There is quite a lot of theft as well. Laptops and bikes are stolen frequently. Other than that, the school is safe. The only complaints are that some of the people don't comply to rules.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel the environment at ASU is very safe. Campus police and city of Tempe police are very visible. I have never felt unsafe and haven't heard negative feedback from friends.

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Drugs are available in any university but I don't think there is a sever problem at ASU

Off-Campus Housing: There are several apartments, condos, and housing near campus with reasonable pricing.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football is decent. Basketball is decent. Baseball is excellent. Softball is good. Soccer is good for both men and women. Wrestling is a bit below par.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The Hassyampa and Barett dorms are very nice, new and good quality. The Best, Irish, McClintock, Palo Verde, both East and West, and San Pablo dorms are somewhat older and decent in terms of condition however they are somewhat below par.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school is strict in terms of keeping students within the law, however the moral code of conduct is relaxed.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is a great college city. Mill Avenue is a popular street where most of the college students go to drink at the bars. Others enjoy shopping and walking down Mill Ave or enjoying a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. There are many places to go visit on campus as well including the Arizona State University art museum, grab a snack or coffee in the Memorial Union, work out in the Student Recreation Complex, or go study in one of the many University libraries. For an older crowd, ten minutes north of Tempe is beautiful Scottsdale. Old Town Scottsdale is a Mill Ave alternative. With many shopping centers, gourmet restaurants and bars to choose from, Tempe and Scottsdale provide an array of exciting daytime and nighttime activities.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are so many opportunities for internships, there are a lot of resources available to help you find and get one. Talk to advisors especially, they are there to help you and will guide you in the right direction.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do feel pretty uncomfortable at night, but there is campus security and you can call for a safety escort if need be.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are drugs on campus. If you are around people who do that stuff, it's a lot. Especially in the residence halls. But you can definitely stay away from it too. Just choose the right people to spend time with.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are a lot of rules, it just depends how you try to go about following them or not whether you get caught or not

3 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the school itself and the staff seems pretty good so far, however, there are a lot of students that have other things on their mind rather than school.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: This question is funny to me. C'mon it's ASU! There is something to do every single night of the week, come the weekend Mill Ave, the Vue, Vista. Those places all get crazy. There are also several 18+ clubs in the area for those under 21.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Here at ASU the sports are exciting, fun to watch, and just a great time overall. The school does a very good job at getting students and other fans really involved with the teams. Everyone really feels like family.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus Bus or Hike – ASU is a large campus. Parking permits are crazy expensive.
Most have to park miles away.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process was fine. I didn't have to do anything special. Getting in to the major is really not that hard, but staying with is the most challenging part.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Here at the west campus, there are new gym and dining pavilion services. Both have a diverse selection within and are very convenient. The staff are all very kind and very helpful. There are also a lot of organizations to become involved in, as well as a good arts scene at this campus. If you have a mind to be involved, you can be.

5 College Junior

Majors: I'm a Social and Behavioral Sciences major, and I enjoy it. It's a fascinating field, and a general jumping-off point for a variety of paths in grad school. I used to be part of the Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance program, and that one is great as well. If you're into psychology, art, sociology, cultural anthropology, music (especially experimental music), performance, political sciences, or anything like these, then I highly recommend ASU.

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!
