2 College Junior

Academics: I feel like going here gets you no where. Everyone knows this school as a party school. So you will be known as the employee who graduated from a party school, do you really want that?

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convient for getting to class, but it isn't always the best. The dorms are gross and small. They smell funny. The RA's don't do anythign about your neighbors that play lud music until 4am.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Most of the year the weather is nice because we have relatively mild winters but summer is terrible. School starts in August when it is still 115 and torturous.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It is a good program and I think I would probably do it again. My goal is to be an elementary school teacher and my only concern about finding a job is being able to work at a school that I want to be at.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am in the education field and I do enjoy the program but I just feel like there is not much freedom in the classes that you are allowed to choose.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I feel hassayampa is really safe, the locks and card swiping truly stops ransoms from getting into the dorms. It's a nice new dorm building which has study rooms and lounges for all your needs.

Nightlife: I feel there is stuff to do , a lot of frat parties but I don't feel comfortable with all those strange people. The hot spots are bars and those are scary, overall it's just kind off scary to go out.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is sometimes hectic. At times there are hardly any spaces so make sure to get to campus a little earlier than your class starts. As long as you have a parking pass you should be fine, but if you don't expect tickets because ASU likes to give out tickets.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an adventure in its self. The people make the experience what it is versus the actual living . The best dorms are Hassy or Sonora for incoming freshmen. There are markets on campus and many places that are close by to go to.

Campus Dining: Dining hall food is edible, but not amazing. The MU has some options of food to eat, but you get over these options after a while.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mill has some good places. A little pricy, but quality food and varied type of food

4 College Junior

Academics: I am in the Liberal Arts and Physical Science College, and in the Psychology program. Their Psych program is one of the stronger ones among state universities, both at the undergrad and graduate level. I have been very satisfied with the curriculum and facilities. Being in big classes can be challenging for some, but if you sit in the front and ask questions to engage yourself then you can get what you need from the classes.

Diversity: Being such a huge university ASU is easily a very diverse school. There are tons of different backgrounds represented in every domain you can think of.

4 College Junior

Majors: ASU is huge and thus they have a large variety of majors that are offered. Not every program is perfect, but they have strong programs in just about every discipline.

Health & Safety: I don't spend a ton of time on campus on the weekend or later in the day since I don't live on campus, but it's a huge university so there is bound to be some crime. I think the most common is probably theft if stuff is left unattended.

Off-Campus Dining: There are the usual chain restaurants nearby but there's not many other options nearby if you're like me and like and eat super healthy.

Nightlife: All the clubs at the Mill strip are 21 and up. Other than that its the hot spot for clubs and bars. There are also some fashion and interesting shops there, as well as great eating places. Lots of house parties in Tempe also.

Guys & Girls: ASU Tempe is a pretty big party school, so if you're not into that then you'll have to do some hunting to meet new people. The school luckily offers a wide range of different clubs and I would say you're guaranteed to find something that suits your interest.
As for people there in general there's still definitely a lot of diversity, but there are a ton of Asians and Indians there as well. The chicks there are also super hot so work out those abs! Lol

Local Atmosphere: At the Tempe campus there's a popular strip on Mill Ave with lots of bars, clubs, shops, and eating places. Its a nice spot especially at night on the weekends. There is also an internet cafe and a park with events right by that strip. The only thing really is that activities and places to go are somewhat scarce away from this hot spot.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus always has its pros and cons, but ASU has several cons. The housing near ASU is very expensive. The apt are very nice but the price is outrages. Everything is overpriced, the buildings are party central, and the people are rude. But if you go a little farther away, not more then half a mile, the prices start to go down. The apt are still very nice but more reasonable to students that are paying for school themselves.
The houses in Tempe are amazing though, they are old but have character. Houses in Tempe are large and spacious, and despite living in Arizona Tempe is very green. The back yards are very big, and filled with greed. Just be careful about the Tempe cops.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Although you might have to walk a little there are great off campus dining options. On Tuesday's there are taco Tuesdays at Fuzzys on mill. The tacos are amazing and its a great crowd. Usually the dining is fairly priced, but there are always the restaurant that become price but most are generous to students.

Facilities: One thing that I love about ASU is the film program. I find it encouraging that each film student receives a mentor that they can talk to. Usually the student is paired with a professor that resembles the same ambitions in film and the student.

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining at ASU is highly disappointing. The "MU" which is the center dining building and the busiest building on campus has a dinning hall called pitch fork. Although the title of the hall is catchy and exciting the food is nothing but subpar. The veggies are often dried out and unappealing, they are usually always out of items, they surve the same food almost all the time, and the service is the worst of the experience.
But there is hope, if you are one of the lucky who can afford to live the high life at ASU you could dine at one of the many other dining halls which are far better. You might be thinking, why do you not just dine there. It is simple, the other dining halls are farther away. I find it incredibly deemning that just because I am not one of the colleges that the housing by the better halls house or that I simply can not afford it I am left to eat horrible food, that to sum it up is worse then cafeteria food I so desperately was escaping when graduating.

Computers: If you can find an open computer at the computer lab then you wont be disappointed. Quality is good and the internet speed is phenomenal.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The is a pretty good variety around the Tempe campus with Olivios and Raising Canes close to the Northeast corner, Mill Avenues eateries on the northwest corner, IHOP and Chipotle on the southwest corner, and Taco Bell, Wendys, and Mcdonalds on the southeast corner.

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!
