5 College Junior

Diversity: This school is really diverse, because grades and schooling don't depend on race just a willingness to learn. This is the only thing that really matters is if they are willing to further their education and that is what ASU looks for.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are quite a bit of off-campus housing options. However, ASU is a college town and the nearby apartments are most likely going to charge you by person, not by room (More business!). So if you think you and your friends are going to buy an apartment and split the price, that's not gonna happen. You'll each pay the same price and are held accountable for your own apartment bill. The prices are $1000-$2000 cheaper though.

2 College Freshman

Parking: It's about $500 a semester, and you still have to walk quite a bit. If you live in Barrett, it might be worth it...just because it's so close. But it's outrageous just to park somewhere. I would recommend just living in the dorms and using public transportation or the provided transportation from the school.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Downtown Tempe & Phoenix are the best if you just wanna go out with friends. There are a bunch of bars if you're over the age of 21. Personally, I use the intercampus shuttles just to get to downtown. I always find something to do!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I have only had been to financial a few times and most the student assistance were knowledgeable and helpful. I only had one experience where the person was rude.

4 College Junior

Weather: I am an Arizona native so I love our weather even went it 100 degrees out!

2 Recent Alumnus

Parking: The cost is horrendous to park at ASU. Most of the spaces are inconveniently far away, and there is no where near enough parking so the lots are always full.

2 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Below average, ASU is supposed to be a dry campus but every student knows that its just not true, there are drugs and alcohol visible everywhere.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many housing options that are located by the campus. Pros would be that you could walk or bike to classes and not have to worry about the additional cost of on campus parking.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I have only been to one of the 4 campuses. On the diversity aspects that I am aware of I would say that there is a good representation of each. I'm not so familiar on economic and religious backgrounds so I can't rate higher without knowing.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Phoenix is one of the largest cities in the country! Anything you can think of to do is here. It is a large college town with lots of things to do for all ages!

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Lots of clubs. from photography clubs to harry potter, gay and lesbian, comic clubs, underground music clubs, and anything you can think of.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Theres something here for everyone. Bros have fraternities, hipsters have underground clubs, everyone fits in. Great looking people, the girls are very attractive.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The graphic design program is incredible. The program is unique in the fact that it offers a bachelor of science in design, as opposed to a Bachelor of Arts, which is what the majority of universities offer nationwide. ASU emphasizes research, design theory, process, as well as collaboration with other disciplines. It's a great program and totally worth the hard work.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received good money. i filled out fafsa, they assisted, then provided funds.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: During the few first months of summer, the heat is unbearable. luckily theres cool air conditioning in every single building. Winter is great, nothing but a sweater. Spring is amazing.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Amazing graphic design program. Focuses on the basics and skills needed to stand out in the job field.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school does its best to provide strict policies that reflect the values of the school. Police are strict on under-age drinking, and staff have a no tolerance on it. I feel a lot safer with its strict policies. Even though the abuse of underage drinking and illegal drugs does happen, its not in sight, and is punished of discovered.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The Tempe campus is the only one that's by a slightly sketchy neighborhood, but as long as your on campus its all good.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Its mostly study drugs, and even those are hard to come by. Drinking is somewhat popular and there is no smoking on campus.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The school is very diverse, there are a lot of different races and people from different countries too! I'd just say this is kind of different for me, I'm mexican-american and come from a place where almost everyone is of mexican decent XD

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Most people on campus are white with a few other races and most come from the same type of background although many are from out of state.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: There are very strict rules against drug and alcohol use on campus but it is still possible to get around it if you are very careful

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Arizona State has a wide variety of courses and professors who are very knowledgeable in their field. However the availability of its professors are sometimes limited making it hard to experience one on one meetings in order to improve my work.

3 College Senior

Weather: I would say that in Arizona, the weather does not impact the campus much at all. With that being said, the occasional days that there is rain, it is found that a lot of students do not attend! Its quite comical actually, but a lot of students use the occasional rain as an excuse to get out of class. Other than that, Arizona does not have much unpleasant weather other than the ungodly heat that hits just in time for summer break.

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!
