2 College Student

Nightlife: The transportation is hard to find since everything seems to go on late at night. However, the club scene is more so for 21 and older, and the those from 18-21 have a hard time finding things to do because most activities involve underaged drinking.

2 College Student

Campus Strictness: Honestly, the strictness on the ASU campus is pretty high. They bust a lot of parties and usually do not allow people to get off without punishment. However, I feel that people know the consequences and therefore I appreciate when they actually put their foot down and do something about it.

5 College Freshman

Weather: One of the main reasons I came to ASU was because of the weather! I love the heat and the sun so I couldn't think of anywhere better. On the weekends, and even some week days, you'll find every public pool swarming with ASU students. If you like the heat and the sun, ASU is for you.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I would say that there are a few aspects of ASU life that are pretty strict but the strictness is a good thing that ultimately helps the students and boosts the moral of the campus. It shouldn't be a surprise that, yes, if you get caught participating in underage drinking, especially if you're on campus, then you will get a Minor in Consumption notice from the police.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are always available computers around campus, even during the busy finals and midterms! I loved how in the beginning of the school year the library allows for free printing for the first couple of weeks. It's really nice because I feel like that's when I had the most printing to do all year!

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: ASU is very generous when giving out scholarships based off of test scores and high school performance. If you ever want to boost those scholarship amounts, you just need to retake the tests like the SAT or ACT. For financial aid, they were very helpful in allowing me to split my largest loan since my parents are divorced. The only reason I am not giving an A+ is because there was a lot of confusion that could have been easily cleared up with clearer explanations of the financial process on the web site.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Weather varies significantly here in Tempe Arizona. In the late summer and early fall months near the beginning of the school year it can be extremely hot with temperatures around 100 degrees. Not only is it hot, but the high temperatures can be accompanied with the presence of monsoon season in the summer months. Winter can be very cold seeing as you are in the desert. Overall, ASU recieves great weather. Nearly every day is a perfect day to lounge by the pool.

5 College Student

Academics: I really like my program because they bring in lots of professionals in the Nutrition industry. I have had many professors that I have looked up to because of their obtuse knowledge for their program and industry.

5 College Student

Diversity: Well what's nice about Arizona State is that it is centrally located in one of the highest states of immigration. There are people from all over the states and/or the world that come here. Not only for school, but the abundance of jobs. People are accepted a lot more than what I remember from when I lived back in Michigan. Arizona State has a huge diverse population from Asian to Ethiopian students and from Atheist to Strict Baptist.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of creative and clever places to eat all through out Phoenix, not just around campuses. However, in Tempe and in Downtown, be prepared to enjoy a myriad of restaurants with delicious food.

3 College Student

Computers: I thought that they were fast and easy to use in the library or labs, however you'd think that they would be up to date and brand new with how much we pay for tuition.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: SO many bikes are stolen every year. They say if you get a U-lock, your bike won't be stolen, but that's not true. Furthermore, there are several rumors of rape every year, but nothing I've heard has ever been confirmed. If you live in the dorms, they're very safe because you literally have to unlock every door on your way in and up the building.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: If i could start over I would do everything the same, my program is perfect for me because I can take it in any direction. I plan on being a successful actor and I have no concerns about finding a job in the field.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have 4 campuses total and the shuttle run between all of them coming every 30 minutes. This makes it easy to travel between campuses when necessary.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy being a communications major. Since it is so general I have a wide range of classes to choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have had an internship and it was an unpaid internship. It was in an office setting and I helped around with everyday errands.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The light rail is nice and so are the Orbit bus system and Flash. But they don't always go the route you need them to take.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are a lot of clubs and bars, specifically for 21 and older! Not much for 18 though.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is superb, blue emergency light phone booth are always within visibility, ASU police roams the campus with a dispatch time less than 2 minutes. Health center is decent. Not far from ASU there is Tempe St Luke hospital that has a decent emergency room

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Food options nearby is so so, I dont think there is a variety. Its a function of being a part of Phoenix metro area. Coming from a big city, Tempe somewhat lacks in food options

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Its an excuse for having a high school stratification of student body that is dominated by party goers. Though they have an extensive exam bank i heard. I do not think there is a need to pay dues and pretend to be someone so that the a group of people accepts you. Be who you are! Go make friends. Join clubs. try dancing. Try ultimate frisbee. You will find your niche naturally in this big school.

Athletics: Not that great of basketball of football teams at the moment, but extremely fun games

5 College Freshman

Weather: great weather year round, but summers are unbearable

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I like off-campus housing because I have the opportunity to become independent and live by myself. However, when you look for an apartment, make sure you are ahead of everyone else so you don't get place on a waiting list! Also, depending on where you live, it could get rather expensive when it comes to the place.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Because I am a very hands on learner and I love working with machines, I absolutely love mechanical engineering. With it, I hope to become employed by a large engineering company and work my way up through the ranks to become a valuable asset!

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!
