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

Majors: Busniess is vital to understanding how people get along when faced with challenges such as supply and demand and how to budget.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I interned for a profitable advertising agency and like it for two reasons. First, it prepared me for what I was about to learn in class. Secondly, the pay helped me pay for school.

Majors: If I could do it again, I would have studied more in order to earn a higher mark.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of off-campus dining opportunities are around all of the ASU campuses and are very affordable.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus usually patrols at night because no one is really around and see who they can find being mischievous around the vehicles. But mostly they are around watching you but you can not see them.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The main use of public transportation used by students is the LightRail. There is free parking for those riding the LighRail from the city of Mesa to Phoenix. It is very convenient as takes you to both the Tempe and Downtown Phoenix campus. Other transportation include shuttles and buses.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There is a small library in the Downtown Phoenix campus that provides public use of computors. Often times, it can be completey full as there aren't many computors. Printing is free and the network is reliable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are a couple dining halls on the Downtown Phoenix campus alone. One of the two support healthy eating and offer a wide variety of foods in the menu. Popular restaurants are also located near/on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in greek life, but a lot of my friends are. It is active and apparent on campus but it does not over rule the school what so ever. The frats do have the best guarentee for parties though.

Off-Campus Dining: Sometimes during the week it is hard finding a place to eat after like 10 but on the weekends before 2am there is usually places to eat.

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!
