2 College Senior

Scholarships: Qualifying for scholarships at ASU are more confusing and difficult than I anticipated.

College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know much about this. I don't have personal experience with them.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinking is all too common at ASU, sometimes to the point of being dangerous. The campus and student population is large enough that it is possible to avoid drink and drug toters. Effective Aug 1, 2013, however, ASU is enacting a 100% tobacco free policy on university-owned property and offering programs to help students quit smoking.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The Tempe campus is situated within walking distance from Mill Avenue, a busy hub for shopping, eating, and social events.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers I have used at ASU allow the user to choose between a Windows OS or an Apple OS, depending on preference or needs. In my experience, the machines in the building related to my major have programs on them to assist with field-specific work. I have found this immensely useful in my studies. I give the score of A instead of A+ because the student computers in the Hayden Library are slightly slow in terms of network connection.

5 College Junior

Athletics: School Spirit is a BIG part of ASU. The students are so supportive of their teams and represent ASU colors at every game. We are loud and proud.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: ASU provides the typical food standards of any other college. Nothing special.

5 College Junior

Transportation: ASU provides a free intercampus shuttle, as they have four campuses across the valley. It is a well run system with air condition and wifi provided.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: ASU is not in the nicest area but the campus itself keeps it pretty clean and put together, and keeps everything under control.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Unfortunately I'm a transfer student and never really got the chance to live on campus. Though I have visited friends who lived on campus and they loved everything about it. Though the quarters are fairly small it efficient and contains everything you'll need.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Personally I don't partake in much student campus life, I am friends with many fellow classmates but when we meet its usually off campus. I do know there is a vibrant on campus life, I just choose not to partake.

3 College Senior

Parking: It's always necessary to give yourself at least 30 extra minutes before class to find parking. It takes time to find a spot but then also pay for it which may have a long line. The permit costs are about $400-600 for one semester depending how close to where you need to be. Also the earlier you get to school the better parking you'll find. I had a class at 7:30am and the best parking, class at 10:30 & it takes 30-45 min to find a spot. For the first time you don't pay for your spot they just give you a warning ticket, after that the fine is between $25-50 depending if on campus or parking near campus.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The majority of my classes are in the art building from the 70's. very old brick building and old elevators, the spaces inside the building are good but there tends to be a lot of problems with old sinks and the elevators. You can tell what programs my school funds the most by the quality of their buildings. The science research and business buildings are very new and some are contemporary.

5 College Senior

Computers: The computers are fairly new but take a couple of minutes to log in, might just be a software issue. There are plenty of computers and printers. To print you must set up a pay account which takes about 30 minutes. The network reliability is great and you can get wifi all over the campus. There are many libraries and computer labs that get busy but you can usually find a spot.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I did not start the process of my financial aid as soon as I could've which takes a bit more time to finish. I would try and get started as soon as possible and make sure your parent is able to provide all the information they need.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: ASU is known for its party scene, regardless of age. The campus is surrounded by many bars and clubs for students to enjoy and let loose. Party functions have also been a huge recognition of the school. Students get intoxicated with friends and do a great deal of crazy stunts. Parties are filled with many drunken people of both sexes. I am not of age to attend a bar so I cannot speak on behave of that. However parties consist of the same atmosphere as bars do as well as night clubs. Every person who is attending a nightlife atmosphere has the intention to live free and let their wild side out.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A B+ grade for usage of drugs at ASU because, students who attend college don't perform such affiliations with a specific drug in the campus necessarily. However they do use drugs such as alcohol, and illegal substances within their home, off campus. I have met a few students during class who tend to show intoxicated or under some type of influence. I think peer pressure has a great amount of responsibility to the usage of drugs. Some students claim that a specific drug helps them retain focus and understanding. As far as drugs being seen on campus property, I have not been near or visibly seen a drug in presence or the presence of others. The enforcement establishment wouldn't allow it on campus; and if seen those individuals would be taken into custody.

5 College Senior

Facilities: the facilities are amazing. always kept clean and well maintained they offer a variety with great access.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: the off housing is great, good prices, decent sizes.

College Senior

Drug Safety: i do not do drugs so I have no idea what the scene is

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe but I haven't also spent a lot of time on campus

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are all sorts of guys,in-state,out of state,and foreigners so there's a lot to choose from..

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of restaurants but few food choices, its almost like same choices

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Asu has a great variety of sports and great facilities

1 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is horrible and you have to get there 30-40 mins early so you cannot be late for class..

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!
