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.

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..

3 College Senior

Parking: If you live near campus (within a mile), do not use a car! Parking in ridiculously over priced and you WILL get a ticket if your meter is expired by even one minute. Also, parking permits are going to cost you over $700!

3 College Senior

Academics: I've had some hits and some misses with my classes at ASU. In the English program, all the teachers I have had so far are excited and extremely knowledgeable about the subjects that they teach. Discussion in these classes is always welcome, and I always have a blast, though I have had many teachers who demand that they are right on certain points and will hear no other opinions. The quality of academics does tend to droop a bit when you get into some of those bigger lecture halls. I do not know how thrilling teaching the same Psych 101 and similar classes over and over is, but it does not seem like the teachers care about much but getting you through the class with moderate success at times. I will say, though, that one of the best teachers I have ever had taught a lecture hall of 400 students, and he knew every single one of our names by the end, and he was passionate until the last day of class.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: If there is one thing I know about campus, it's all the different options you have for food. The MU offers some good, standard food court style food, as well as some nice little sit down places, though it's all a little expensive. Tucked away on campus, you can find places like Subway, and even a small hot dog place on the eastern part of campus that is tasty, but expensive. The best dining hall, by far, is the Barrett dining hall. I don't know if I set myself up for failure with the other dining halls after eating at a place that has gelato every day and night, but the other dining halls pale in comparison. The food is not bad, but it is just very standard dining hall food. As standard as it comes.

4 College Senior

Transportation: The transportation offered at and around ASU is extremely convenient and has been useful to me in the past few years. I regularly take the light rail, which is semi-dependable, though it is not run by ASU itself, and I love the bus and shuttle transportation systems that are offered. Both are free, and they are convenient for any student who needs to get anywhere, be it around the main campus or in between any of the many different campuses.

5 College Senior

Nightlife: With Mill Ave down the street from Tempe Campus is all I have to say, its amazing!

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: From Chikfila to Starbucks there are so many dining options!

4 College Senior

Majors: There are a lot of options at ASU, I am a Business Major and I absolutely love it. They have a great program and its been an amazing experience. I wouldn't do it again, I truly have enjoyed it.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is a very eclectic city to live in. Farmer's markets, art shows, clubs, karaoke bars billiard rooms are everywhere, and you don't have to be 21 to be able to have fun either. This city has a wide range of activities including rock climbing, hiking, archery, and other shooting ranges.

2 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug scene is there for sure. It's a campus of 50,000 students. But I am not around it that much, so I would not be a very good person to ask.

4 College Senior

Diversity: ASU has a ton of diversity from ethnic groups to religion. It is awesome to pass through the cafeteria and hear at least 3 different languages being spoken. There are a wide variety of people who have come from so many different place. Some times I feel that being from a small town in Mississippi is just plain boring compared to those I encounter on campus.

5 College Junior

Majors: Arizona State has a ton of majors to choose from, and moving from major to major isn't that difficult either, if you so chose to change your course of study. For the most part many classes outside of very specific disciplines such as engineering or nursing apply to a broad variety of majors.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Parking is strictly enforced, public transit in Phoenix is a joke. Everyone has a vehicle so it's understandable that parking is very closely monitored. As far as non-students on campus go it's an everyday thing. Lot's of people cut through Tempe campus or even downtown Phoenix campus. Homeless people loiter on Taylor Mall after sundown.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Because Havasu is a new campus they are still working out some of the scholarship availability systems. Many scholarships are campus-specific. But they do offer a yearly grant to all students to help make up the difference, and the tuition is less than at the more established campuses. So for me, it's been great.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places in a wide variety of price ranges in Lake Havasu City. Just about any kind of food you might want is available in town.

College Junior

Majors: I have not had any internships yet, although as a Psych major I am sure I will need them as I get closer to completing my program.

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!
