4 College Freshman

Diversity: Their is alot of diversity here at ASU. The best is for the sexual orientation.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They are good in keeping beer and drugs off campus but if you need help at the health center you need to buy their health insurance

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: i lived on campus this year, but i heard the off campus living is first come first serve

4 College Freshman

Athletics: lots of fan support and fun actvities around ASU game day

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are plenty of places to go to in Tempe and activities to do. About 10 minutes from campus is one of Arizona's largest shopping malls, Arizona Mills, which offers all the shops you can think of and a IMAX theater and aquarium! And if you take the light rail heading downtown, it stops right by the Phoenix Zoo which is a hoot of a time. And of course right on campus, there is A Mountain, which is a great hike in the morning or at dusk.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Mill Avenue is North of ASU, and offers an array of restaurants and food stands. They have popular stores, such as Jimmy John's and PF Chang's, and then local college shops, such as Sparky's Creamery and American Taco Shop. There are plenty of near-by restaurants besides Mill as well, and if you go to any of them a majority of the crowd is students!

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Every Saturday there is a thing at Memorial Union called MU after Dark I think? Anyways they have events and booths there you can meet new people and be social, yadda yadda. And each of the dorms hold events throughout the week and most are at night, and they can range from hawaiian luaus to paint parties with a live DJ.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only downfall to where I live, Hassayampa Academic Village, is that it is SO far away from every single one of my classes. They dorms themselves are pretty nice, and much more spacious then I thought. Only downfall to the room is the showers. I wish there were tubs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: It is not terrible food, but it is also not worth the almost 10 dollars a meal that we pay for it. It could be worse, but it could be better. The Hassayampa dining hall is the worst, and Pitchfork is the best.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe at Arizona State. There are always police and campus security around, even at night. When there is something dangerous on campus, you can get text messages sent form the school keeping you updated, and the dorms and housing are always well secured, needing at least 3 doors of entry with card key before you can get to a hall.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Hard drugs at Arizona State University is not a big thing. Occasionally you will run across people who do pot, but I have never met anything doing real dangerous drugs. Alcohol is a big deal on campus though. ASU has a reputation for partying and unfortunately, people like to maintain that, rather than overcome it.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I have my own computer and printer, but there are a lot of labs around campus to work on. Printing is really expensive so I would get your own printer. The wifi is good.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Arizona State is right next to downtown Tempe which has many night clubs and bars. There are only a select few night clubs who allow 18+ in, however if you are 21 there is a ton of night life to partake in.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a very large variety of off campus housing for Arizona State. The campus is surrounded with various apartment complexes as well as large houses for students to rent.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports at Arizona State is a large part of living on campus. The sports teams are so fun to watch and bring the entire campus together to cheer them on. Arizona State also has amazing sports facilities. Along with the football and basketball stadium, campus also has an amazing student recreation center that has an Olympic size pool as well as two floors worth of work out equipment for any interested student.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life seems to be a large part of campus. There is always booths and other miscellaneous Greek events on campus during an average day. Most of the sororities and fraternities are very involved on campus as well as off campus with volunteer work.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I myself have not had any experience with drugs and have not been in situations that drugs were available.

5 College Freshman

Computers: As I do not have my own computer I frequent the computer labs a lot. I have never had any problems finding a computer to use. There a also a variety of places to go and work.

College Freshman

Majors: I would like to pursue and internship so I can experience my chosen profession first hand.

3 College Freshman

Majors: My major is English Creative Writing, I have enjoyed my classes and am looking forward to pursuing my goal of writing in a variety of situations and areas such as novels, plays, scripts, and I may want to go on to teach Creative Writing. This is my first year and I am looking forward to my future.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had a late start last year and was unable to apply for scholarships until now. However I am rather lost and would like to have more assistance from the financial aid office. I am getting confused and frustrated with the process, which is hindering my changes of obtaining scholarships.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love the English department at A.S.U., my English professor has become someone I look up to and respect. That personal touch has made my college experience a good one.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: In August of 2012 I began my college career at A.S.U., I feel very safe on campus as there is always someone patrolling the campus. They campus has security cameras, and several services assisting in reporting crimes or unusual behavior. At the same time I did witness bikes being stolen and called the campus hotline they were unresponsive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Mill Avenue is probably the most noted area for dining although the restaurants there are usually overpriced with average food. There are a few local gems such as Los Favs which is a great Mexican restaurant but other than that you'll see a lot of chains.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You're put into dorms based on what college your major is in. So if you're like me and fall under the Herberger School for Design and the Arts you will get stuck with the oldest dorms on campus. Not to mention the only dorms with community bathrooms. They will try to convince you that community bathrooms are a "fun" part of the college experience but please note this is a LIE. Especially considering how much money you will pay and how many times the hot water in the showers will not work (hint: too many times to count). All dorms on campus though have paper thin walls and are fairly close quarters. The only positive I can give is that since they are on campus it is very easy to get to class.

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!
