4 College Freshman

Facilities: The gym on the Tempe Campus is a great gym. There are two floors and lots of machines such as ellipticals, treadmills, and stationary bikes. There is also a weight room and classes one can sign up for at an extra fee such as karate and yoga. The libraries are open most of the day and the Hayden library is open all 24 hours all week long.

Off-Campus Dining: Going to Mill ave for food and shopping is always fun, even more if you are 21 years old. There are many bars and fun clubs for those of age. However those who are still underage can go out to eat at good restaurants like Chili's that is only about a fifteen minute walk from the ASU campus and its an afforable price.

Guys & Girls: Everyone is either dressed up properly or in gym clothes. Rarely ever is anyone looking bad. For the most part I would say everyone is stylish and both guys and girls take care of their appearance. Most guys are the built musular type, so girls if you like that come to ASU!.

Scholarships: Get as much tips to filling out the Fafsa as you can ahead of time. The financial aid office was not of much help when I was first applying. They pretty much told me to do what I thought was right! But at my third attempt at last my financial aid went through and I received an amazing substantial amount, so it was definitely worth the headache in the end.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing allows for students to have the freedom they wish now that they are living on their own. There is security all around, so if you ever feel unsafe the police is available right away. The neighbors are usually fun people who want to make new friends as well. so have fun and socialize.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Arizona State is very diverse, and Arizona itself has tons of things to do. If you are an outdoors kind of person there are a town of great hikes right in the area of campus, one actually on campus. Mill avenue is right off campus as well, if you are 21 it is the place to be at night. However, if you are underage it is still fun to go to during the day time, there are street performers, shops, and great food. Tempe town lake is also beautiful during the sunset. And Tempe market place has great shopping as well. ASU has a ton of organizations and clubs to get invloved in, Greek life is a great organization if you want to get involved and make friends quickly.

Computers: Arizona State has two different places you can go to both use the computers and printers for free. The computing commons does not id you to print, you just use your ASUrite ID and password to log in. At the library you have to log in to the computers the same way, but when you print you must scan your ASU ID. However they are both free unless you print an excess amount of pages.There is internet connection all over campus, but if you live on campus, invest in a cable. There is already a connector in the wall and your internet will triple in speed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms at ASU are divided by major, so you can relate and have a common ground with more of the people on your floor. The RHA (residents hall association) does a great job of having different promotions and events to get to know everyone in the community as well as the whole floor. The only down side is once you sign your lease, it is extremely difficult to move out or transfer to the Greek housing (Fraternities: apartment complexes or houses off campus; Sororities: Adelphi, which is a separate dorm building and cluster on campus for each sorority)

Parking: Parking is usually crowded and is on first come first serve in each lot. It is also pricey in my opinion but if you have no other choice you can always get the cheaper parking pass at a far away lot and take the FLASH closer to campus, which I personally have never had to do. Luckily I now live within walking distance at an apartment and I do not have to deal with parking anymore.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: To be in the W.P. Carey program, they require good SAT scores, ACT scores, and a high G.P.A. Of course, this wasn't a big deal for me. I respect their ways of getting people in. It shows me how serious they take in their program. It is not a joke to them. They want their students to be able to do very well and stay that way. However, if someone does not meet any of the requirements, there will still be a way to apply. To get in, you would have to recieve a minimum 3.0 G.P.A in college. With that, they will be able to consider you into their program.

Majors: W.P. Carey is one of the top 5 in the nation. The program is very good and the advisor provide good aid to get to your career. There are always special guests that come to campus and provide their experience to the business world. I do not regret getting in this program. I believe that it will provide good ideas about my career.

Campus Strictness: ASU is a dry campus. There are never students with alcoholic drinks on campus. Even if the students are at age, they are still not allowed to drink on campus. When you are on campus, you notice the friendly environment coming across. They all take the rules seriously and maintain it that way. The safety of the school is everywhere. The police make sure that students ride their bikes on the right route to safety. I believe that this school is very good on keeping everyone safe.

Majors: I will admit, there are days when certain interneships have representatives to provide information at the beginning of lectures. The problem about that, is how rare they do it. Not many professors on campus allow their class to be interupted so, they decline their offer. The students have to discuss with their advisors about internships. They won't really mention about interneships unless you ask.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a business management major, I discovered that there lots more oppurtunities to own a business. I started off as an Accounting major but I felt like I wanted to do a lot more. I didn't think that being an accountant would really satisfy my needs. I have many other interests. I believe that I can create my own business under gaming. Someday, I would like to be the one that helped or had game creators that meets many customers' needs. My advisor inspired me to do more about what I want than doing something that I believe will be good. Yes, being an accountant will provide good minimum wages but will it give me a happy life? That only depends how much I am into accounting. I can be an owner of a company but also know accounting so that I don't have to worry about getting my own accountant.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Area around campus is basically filled with choices of apartments -- varied in pricing and condition. The ones closer to the campus, of course, tend to be older and more pricey. I suggest fellow students to search for apartments that are a few blocks away. You'll find much better deals.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The campus itself is very pleasant...the surrounding areas, however, is somewhat run down. Mill Ave. can look very nice during the day time, but it could be sketchy at night.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is beneficial to those who knows how to manage their times and have their priorities set. It gives more diversity to the atmosphere of campus. However, most of the Greek students are viewed as party lovers by the non-Greeks.

Parking: Parking can be difficult at times, especially in the morning due to the number of students driving to school for their classes, permit cost is slightly more expensive if the lot is closer to your classes. Having a car isn't necessary for some students as there is a light rail next to the school, so it's pretty convenient. But if you're driving, be sure to have a parking permit in your car at ALL TIMES.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Very good public transport in the ASU downtown phoenix campus. There is a Light Rail Station just next to the dorm and school buildings. You can get a transit pass at any light rail station or even online and the prices are very reasonable, there is reduced fare for youths age 6-18. There is also city buses as well.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mill Avenue features some of the tastiest hot spots and restaurants! There are always coupons for students too.

Diversity: As the largest public university in the United States, ASU is a true melting pot of ethnic background.

Health & Safety: There has been a few occasions where I have felt unsafe. Sometimes I come home on my bike at midnight or even later from soccer, or parties and it can be freighting. Another instance when I was scared was when there was a shooting ande kidnapping less than two miles away from my dorm. Those are the only times I have ever felt scared because my dorm room locks automatically after I leave.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are so many girls at ASU it doesn't matter how many times you get shut down because there are so many others. There are many soroity girls, athletic girls, geeks, city girls, country girls, religious girls, funny girls and many of those girls are pretty and smart.

Academics: I came to Arizona State University because it is highly ranked in the W.P. Carrey Business School. The campus is big and beautiful with friendly people all over the surroundings. The weather is always great and most of the proffessors I have had been none short of great. They are always available for email, office hours or before and after class. Class discussions are encouraged in both smaller and bigger classes because it makes the time go by faster, a better way of learning and it is fun.

Greek Life: Greek life is very prominent at ASU. It does really help make the school seem smaller and get you a ton of friends all at once. I have lots of different friends in them and they are very involved with charities and different school events. Theres only one form of greek housing which is Aldephi. Most fraternities have apartment complexes off campus though.

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!
