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.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Medicinal biochemistry majors are forced to take multiple science courses at a time, which means the average student spends as much time studying biology and chemistry in one week as a full time job. I have days where I wake up at 5:30 in the morning and go strong all day doing only science. I wouldn't change a thing though. I love what I'm learning and I want to stick with it, which is something not a lot of students (especially freshman) can say.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: night life is basically for those students that are of age. but there are still dorm and house parties that happen often

4 College Sophomore

Academics: ASU offers a wide variety of programs there is something available for everyone

5 College Sophomore

Weather: I love the weather even if it is 100 degrees out side.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are a TON of places to eat around the downtown campus. However, as far as eating at the dorms go, there is the dinning hall and devil's greens (soup, salad, burritos, ice cream). There is also a small store, but it is very expensive. The food in the dinning is pretty good for cafeteria food, but it could be better and tends to get old after a while. I suggest the one or two meal a day plan.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am a health sciences major. This is a really great program that can help you get into many different graduate schools. The teachers are helpful and the classes are interesting (if they aren't you picked the wrong major haha). I declared my major before starting school (the dorm downtown is split up so that each floor is a different major), but you do not need to decide before you apply and changing majors is relatively simple.

1 College Senior

Parking: It's awful and a mess!!! Parking lots get full or it's reserved so you can't depend on it!!! I HATE it!!

5 College Senior

Transportation: I'm amazed at all the services that the buses go to pick up the students such as taking them to nightlife, picking up at on-campus parking or even the the parking that is far from school.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I'm impressed with the school especially the law school since I've never attended an ABA type of law school; it is amazing!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am part of the College of Nursing and Health Innovation in Downtown Phoenix. I'm part of the direct admittance nursing program and although the requirements are really tough, it is possible to succeed! You have to maintain a 3.5 GPA minimum every semester, which is really stressful because you have to take a lot of difficult sciences. Overall the majority of my professors have been amazing teachers, however I have definitely had to work really hard to get good grades. I have learned a lot so far, however I've never studied so much in my life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms have a lot of perks, as well as downfalls. The Taylor Place dorms in Downtown Phoenix are very strict. You have to check in guests at a security desk and you're given a lot of rules, such as specific hours to be quiet. However, living on campus is nice because your classes are all close by and its nice that each room has its own shower. You will definitely meet a lot of people and make friends, however unless you're over the age of 21, there really isn't anything to do in Downtown Phoenix.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's overall awesome. I live close to almost 10 popular dining places including the mall.

Nightlife: I live further from campus so I don't have much access to bars and clubs.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: there's hardly any peer pressure going on. I know it's out there (the drugs) but i have not come into contact with any so far

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: so much partying, so much peer pressure. But it is easy to say no, easy to find other friends. But it is very dominant, especially at football games

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!
