5 College Freshman

Diversity: Our school is a big melting pot. So many people from all over the world come here. They all have different backgrounds when it comes to ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and political beliefs. And because everyone is so different, I believe there is a respect there for the differences that exist; there are hardly any arguments.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't think anyone cares whether you are in the Greek life or not. Nobody pressures you to join a fraternity or sorority, either, which is nice. But when it comes to how the Greek life on campus affects campus life, I personally don't see a difference.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not yet been searching for off-campus living, but I haven't seen any options on the ASU housing website; it's all regulated towards the on-campus halls and apartments.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Public transportation here is the greatest. Everything you need is within walking distance. If its a little out of reach there are plenty of flash busses that travel around Tempe. There is a light rail that can bring you to the downtown campus. The intercampus shuttles provide a free and convenient way to travel to all of the local campuses. Even the valley metro bus provides everybody with affordable and constant transportation. If you want and need to travel back home, Sky Harbor Airport is less than 25 minutes away.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at ASU is only good for those who want to party. Some seem to actually want to learn but the majority want to get by. Greeks are viewed as stuck up and egotistical compared to the non-greeks.

College Junior

Weather: Weather doesn't really affect the campus experience.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some are really nice, like Hassy and Barrett. However then you have PV main and Best, which are dirty. Its all what you pay for, the nice ones are very expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is blue skies most all the time. It get's cold at night in the winter obviously but more than you would think. I haven't been through the summers here, but I heard it gets very hot.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You rarely notice these drugs on campus. You kind of just know.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities at ASU are great. Varsity sports are of high importance and the teams are treated like royalty. The games are importance, and so is attendance!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking is the most obvious activity in college. Drug use depends on the crowd you associate with. Pot is probably the most common thing to notice on campus in dorms. The drug use and drinking isn't overwhelming.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of places down here in tempe that are incredible and of such a great quality. Being from california, I was worried I would never find any good japanese food, but there are even two great restuarants near by my dorm! There are many good mexican and iltalian restaurants, even vegan places as well. Some are more expensive than others, but they all have some good deal on their menus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: As long as you reach out to your counselors, they literally have lists of scholarships that you can apply for that you are eligble for.
-Talk to your counselor
-Look online for scholarships on google search
-There are scholarship events you can attend to learn about how to properly apply for the ones you want

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus is really nice as long as you choose one of the good apartment complexes. The block 1949, 922 place, and the Hub are wonderful places to live, and they are very spacious to live. Best thing too is that all feature fully furnished places for decent prices, pools, gyms, and are all home to college students so you're never out of place!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Frat guys are douches, greek girls are sexy and fun

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys, mainly frat guys, are huge douchebags. The sorority girls and any other girls are usually nice and sweet but there can be a bad one here and there. The guys here think too highly of themselves

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There is opportunities available for all academic groups. I have joined a premed group that gives students the ability to speak with current practicing physicians and medical students. This gives insights into the current conditions in the field and the ability to ask questions about the reality of the path through medical school and beyond.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation system at ASU is set up to provide all students easy access to the campus as well as the other campuses. The system is timely and available at all hours. It is safe and dependable.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: All religious, ethnic and economic groups are represented at ASU. There is no discrimnation that I am aware of and there is support through the ASU parent association for economic needs additional to other financial options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Police enforcement is strict for underage drinking and other illegal substances. They are available to maintain a safe environment. There is a safety program available for student and faculty that provides peace of mind to my mother. Using the system is easy and encouraged.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The environment has provided a good support for me in persuing my degree. I have only started at Arizona State but I know that it feels like home already and that has given me comfort in moving forward. I am committed to my academic achievement and I believe that ASU is as well. The professors are easily accessible for support and understanding of personal situations. I was able to rebound after my father's death in the first semester with the support of the counselors and classmates.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Im not a big fan of sport, But the the Sun Devils rock and role. There are regular football matches where all students attend and it becomes more like a socializing event where everyone has great fun. the team is also imporroving each day, so the matches are real fun.

3 College Senior

Facilities: My School has a very good sustainable Program. The Master of Built Environment. It's a coourse which is taught by very well known professors in the field. they provide alot of hand on experaments and it has a big solar lab where students can experement and have a great learning experiance.

3 College Senior

Facilities: I am a student in the Design school, Tempe. I really like our building. It has a very good and big library which has almost all what you look for. Tha computer labs are really good too. Thier is a workshop were students have access to to do all thier projects. Most facilities are open on weekends which makes a student's life much easier.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet since this is my first year, but ASU really stresses the importance of finding one. As a pre-med student, I've been informed about the importance of gaining experience through research in order to better learn exactly how research works to prepare myself for medical school later in life.

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!
