4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a transfer student, I had no problems transferring into my major because I worked very hard at my other university and proved I was a great applicant. For me, as long as you have a strong GPA and the right test scores, you should not have to worry.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It has a very diverse amount of majors. Because this is a massive school, it has a great amount of funding to do many majors and average university will not be able to have. There are some majors here that I have never even heard of!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, but I plan to because an internship is a way to network with employers and also gain real world experience with your major! With my major, if you have a good GPA and personality, which I thing I do, I will have no trouble finding an internship!

4 College Freshman

Transportation: On the Tempe campus we have what is called the Flash Bus that has many stops and takes you to and from the main campus and parking areas. The busses come every 10-15 minutes and run pretty late. Tempe also has the light rail system that runs next to campus and is handy for those living a few miles away or that chose to commute and utilize the park and ride.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There isn't a whole lot to do in Tempe, and public transportation is kind of difficult to figure out. So, unless you have a car, be prepared to stay on campus for the majority of your time here.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit at ASU is like nothing I've ever seen before. The Sundevils mean business. I, personally, went to every football game and it was an amazing experience. I love being in the student section, you cannot sit down. We are like a family, all cheering for our team, together, as one.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: There is always something to do at ASU. The residence hall association is always putting on events. They have free food, music, and activities. We also have the SRC where we can work out or join a intramural team, or my favorite, go to the pool to tan.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I love ASU's campus. It is full of so much history, which still being modern. We have the MU, where students can go to eat, study, or just hangout. There are study areas everywhere around campus. We are offered multiple libraries, as well as computer labs. Something is always going on outside the MU, whether it's clubs, a blood drive, or music, there is always something to get involved in. The best thing is the football games. Everyone tailgates at lot 59 and then we all go into the stadium, decked out in maroon and gold. It's so much fun and truly a great experience.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Police are very strict and getting caught with any amount of weed or underage drinking will get you in trouble whether its a felony or fine.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I think there is the average demographic at ASU as at most state schools. There are people from many different races, religions, and cultures.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I live at the East Polytech campus in the family housing. ASU has recently constructed a new athletic center with several sports fields that seem to get a lot of use. I regularly walk the campus and always see groups practicing in the various fields. Campus housing also has meetings and family activities each month for the different housing areas.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining selections I graded are at the East Polytech campus. There are quite a few options within a few blocks. If you go two miles straight out of campus you are at the SanTan Mall area and there are many different types of restaurants there, from the typical fast food chains to upscale sit-down's.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Family housing at the East Polytech campus is something I have never seen at another school. It's old military housing but is a great affordable option for students with families.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I am in the Honor's College at ASU. It is brand new and state of the art. The dorm rooms and other facilities at Barrett Honor's College is better than the rest of the school and honor students get priority registration and access to smaller classes.
Even if you are not an honor student there are so many things to do at ASU and the campus is huge and has a great athletic center and arena is huge. If you like football you will like ASU.
Tempe has a great downtown that is right next to campus so you can walk and get whatever you need.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Lightrail, buses and shuttles all available from campus. No need to have a car. Bus and lightrail go to airport and to many student housing areas near ASU.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My major is Business (Communication) which you take a lot of different kinds of classes for and takes a decent amount of time and dedication, but if you enjoy it, it isn't much of a problem.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are a great deal of places to eat on campus but not much is open late, besides Devil's Diner on the North end of Tempe campus.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The network here can be a pain and can be unreliable when you need it most.

5 College Freshman

Academics: A wide variety of classes taught by different professors on different campuses are available to all students.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The finances page and scholarship page are good resources

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Sports teams are in a kind of slow decay at the moment, as I am rarely made aware of any substantial victories by our sports teams; too many high profile losses has caused attendance to sharply drop - it often feels as if they need to bribe students to attend many events.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I can not give an accurate grade of campus housing because I have never experienced it. However, I have looked at the pricing and it seems much more expensive than living in an apartment located off campus. For example, a girl that I have class with told me that to rent an apartment in Vista del Sol it costs her close to $800.00 whereas for me it costs $400.00 and I live off campus. Keep in mind that campus housing includes electricity, water, etc. in their pricing. The bills that my room mate and I split every month are internet and electricity and even still we do not even come close to spending $800.00 a month.

5 College Senior

Transportation: There are several options for transportation at school. We have zip cars, inter-campus shuttles, and a "circulator" which essentially drops people off at their cars. The flash forward and flash back are buses that stay close to campus and basically just drop people off at the parking lots that are far from campus. There is also the Orbit which is good for students who live off campus and need a free ride. Getting around on a bike or skateboard is also very easy.

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking is a pain. It always costs an arm and a leg. You either have to get a parking past that's very expensive or you have to pay for a meter that doesn't last nearly long enough.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking at ASU is incredibly expensive, and is hard to find.

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!
