4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: At Arizona State University, there are people around campus that are seen smoking, but overall, it's not many people. Starting this year, the campus will be a drug free campus. Hence, there won't be much drugs on campus anymore.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The places inside the Memorial Union are all pretty good! The dining halls get old after a while if you have a meal plan but the food isn't bad. The POD is really convenient however, the prices are outrageous and you'll end up overpaying for the convenience.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Mill ave has a lot of restaurants and places to eat, there are plenty of good places on university, old town scottsdale, at tempe marketplace and scottsdale fashion square as well. If you're looking for really unique places, you'll have to search a while but you can definitely find something!

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life is a lot different at ASU now than it was a few years ago, especially after Alpha Drive was torn down. ASU has no frat row, no fraternity houses and no sorority houses because if too many girls are living under one roof it is considered a brothel. So the fraternities live in complexes and houses around tempe, most of them are dirty and run down, except a few that have really nice ones. It kind of split the greek life up and pushed them off campus almost. Plus this past school year, a lot of drama happened in Greek life, including a death of a brother after he was lost for two weeks and a high school girl being burned by a fire at another fraternity party.

Campus Strictness: ASU is a dry campus, so if anyone is caught in the dorms with alcohol there are very harsh punishments and you could get kicked out of your dorm or moved to another one. Drug use and possession is another big deal in the dorms, I've seen campus cops searching rooms and busting students multiple times. Cops also patrol the campus and dorms on big days for drinking, there was a cop standing outside my dorm on halloween waiting for drunk students to come back.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer's aren't bad, although printing is a challenge, wifi is hit or miss, and blackboard crashes far too often.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the Education Program is easy if you work hard and get good grades. Staying in is the hard part if you are ever absent from classes... so stay in school! No vacations during the school year!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I earned all of my Scholarships because of my AIMS scores in High School. So my money for school came directly from the State... I don't know how well ASU does with handing out Scholarships, but I do know that they are the nicest people on the phone! If you are willing to be kind and patient with them, they ALWAYS help you out!

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Just like an average college. Always go with the Sabra Hummus and pretzels when in a hurry or on the way to class! (Available in the Union)

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: While it is a little scary to walk around campus after dark, there are many lighted paths and there is always a (very kind) Security Officer to walk with you for protection. No need to worry if you take the right precautions!

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are many things to do at ASU, no matter which campus you attend. Because the Tempe campus is the main campus, there are many more things to do. However, there is almost always something to do after class at ASU.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process was fairly easy and I was able to keep all the forms and were easy to read and understand. The only thing was that I received some scholarship money right as school was about to begin that I did not know of. About two months prior, I accepted students loans because the grant and scholarship money that I was shown was not enough. When I was told of the extra aid that I was receiving, I realized that I accepted loans that I did not need. I would have liked that I was shown all of the aid that I was receiving before being shown options for loans.

College Sophomore

Transportation: I cannot give an exact grade on the transportation at ASU because I have not used it yet. There are buses that pick up and travel to each ASU campus. It is free and has many transportation times. Distance is determined by what campus you are located at and which campus you will be headed to.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining at ASU West is pretty diverse, offering different restaurants with different types of food. There are many fast food chains in the area, however, there are also places that offer Korean, Italian, and Mexican cuisine.

4 College Senior

Parking: Parking is pricy, but the lots are close to campus and for further lots there are free shuttles to take you to campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The newer dorms are quite nice, albeit loud due to very thin walls. However, the older dorms smell of mildew and creak as if you are living in a mobile home. Community bathrooms are always an adjustment, but I have to say the school does a great job keeping them clean and presentable.

4 College Junior

Academics: ASU has very helpful professors teaching a first-class curriculum. The registration process was easy. There are many special study options with flexibility in the work load. I love Arizona State University and I am a proud Sun Devil.

4 College Junior

Weather: Some like it HOT. I do!
If you're used to polar climates, ASU is not for you. If you love warmth, sun, and awesome thunderstorm (monsoon season)-got to go to ASU!

5 College Senior

Majors: The audition process at ASU dance almost gives you a one-day tour of the program. There are several parts to it, and they all give a glimpse to how it's going to be if you actually get in.

2 College Senior

Parking: It's expensive and not enough parking spots for the large number of students that drive to school. The parking system is simple and well-organized, in my opinion, so that's why I gave a C- rather than a D or lower.

5 College Senior

Majors: I transfered into ASU school of dance. If I could do it all over again, I would like to do the actual four years rather than three. This program has a lot to offer.

5 College Senior

Majors: ASU school of dance undergraduate curriculum is currently one of the leading blueprint for many schools. We ask questions and explore subject matters that not many have dove into. You get a lot of choices during your four years there, and it is really what you make of it. It can be as tough or as "easy" as you would like it to be.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Very efficient so far as you have your parking permit

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!
