1 College Junior

Majors: The BME departement at asu has been less than professional. There are a few professors that care and give their professional best. However, most are inconsiderate, especially the professors incharge of fundamental principles. Lack the fundamentals cause future professors to get frustrated and think that we were not trying.
Additionally the department needs to be divided into areas of specialty sooner, because it is currently heavy on the filters, imaging, and programming side, when there is a lot more to Bio medical engineering. Such as Neuroscience, behavioral, rehabilitation. Drug delivery, prosthetics, bio sensors, biomaterials. etc.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I would say diversity exists, but tolerance or traditional values is rare. The tides have turned and only "progressive/liberal" views are accepted.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many student discounts. There is excellent variety within walking distance from campus. There is also a variety of price ranges.

1 College Junior

Transportation: They are very expensive if you want to park on campus, but if you want to commute a half hour it becomes more affordable. Religious affiliations can also get you parking benefits.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Phoenix has a booming housing market, but you would have to drive to school unless you get an apartment or condo

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The nursing program is top 5 in the nation. I've been really happy so far

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Daytime I feel 100% safe. At night you don't want to hang around due to nearby crime, but they are really renovating downtown Phoenix so it's looking nicer everyday

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are lots of hang outs but in the summer it's too hot

3 College Freshman

Facilities: ASU's isn't the most beautiful campus, but it certainly works. Everything is relatively modern and well kept.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The ASU bus system and Valley Metro combine to do a pretty good job. ASU has buses between all 4 campuses, and the light rail and bus system gets you anywhere you need to go, just maybe not super fast.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: For the most part, ASU has nice facilities. Most of the newest stuff is on South campus, like the Barrett and Hassy complexes.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are tons of food options on campus. There are full food courts with options like Subway, Burger king, chick-fil-a, or freestanding food places like frozen yogurt, hot dogs. Many options for ethnic food off campus as well

3 College Junior

Computers: There are numerous locations to use computers and print on the different campuses. HOWEVER they are very slow and sometimes do not let you log on..it has taken over 5 minutes to log on before.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process was a little difficult for me because I am out of state and had issues trying to find out when and how I could be classified as a resident to receive tuition breaks however I did get the run around a lot and there was a lot of stress I had to take and complete to receive information

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: In addition to the FAFSA I was required to submit extra paperwork which slowed down the process and I believe reduced the amount of aid I eventually received. I would recommend doing the paperwork as soon as possible and being tenacious about checking on the status of your paperwork.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek system has suffered a lot of bad publicity lately due to the drowning death of an inebriated underage member as well the hospitalization of a high school girl for burns suffered while attending a frat party. There have also been arrests for fighting and assault. While these events may not represent the full scope of Greek life at ASU, these events are fueling the push to eliminate the Greek system from the University. If these groups want to remain a part of ASU, they are going to have to improve their public persona.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Everywhere but may have older hardware, they get alot of use.

Parking: Parking is fair, it is a big university... lots of ground to cover

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The problem is the housing around Tempe isn't a very good area. A lot of homeless people live throughout the neighborhoods. Some neghborhoods are very dangerous and violence is seen throughout the areas on a daily basis. I had to live about 5-6 miles from campus in nearby Mesa just to find a reasonably priced and safe neighborhood to live in. The school needs to lower on campus housing prices instead of leaving students with no choice but to live in a bad area due to cost.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Being a political science major is great! This being my first semester in this major, I was really sucked into the course material by my Professors. Before I started my progess on this major I was simply interested in politics and now I just can't get enough. My professors did a great job of providing a reasonable curriculum and engaging me throughout the semester with thoughtful and free-form discussion.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid does an alright job but I wasn't really offered any grants or money. I was only offered subsidized and unsubsidized loans. The process wasn't easy either. It was very hard for a first time college student to grasp, especially being the first child in the household to go to college.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: My first year living at the dorms was amazing, i just recently moved out of the dorms into my house with my roommate who also lived with me in the dorms. I did not have many restrictions while living in the dorms so living in a house is not much different. I do however love the space i have in the house, the fact that i can cook real food, have a normal size fridge, more than one bathroom, and my own tv. This is whyi give the ASU off campus housing an A-

3 College Freshman

Majors: I have just declared this major and at the moment just trying to finish my general studies. I am looking forward to taking organizational leadership classes as well as trying out the sub-catagories of this major.

3 College Freshman

Majors: At the moment i am an organizational leadership major, this will transfer over as a business major when i transfer to the main campus, the major options for ASU in general are tremendous, but as for ASU colleges of Lake Havasu we need some help. There are currently only five active majors this school offers, but once we accept more students we will have a bigger variety of wants and more money to pay for the classes asked for.

4 College Student

Diversity: ASU has so many different clubs and activities for every ethnic background. So many different races go to ASU, and everyone is very accepting of them!

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!
