Athletics: Varsity sports at Arizona State University play an important roll toward students at campus. Any kind of sports at school help student achieve their dreams or it helps students visualize how important it might be in their lifes by contributing to young kids play and follow good steps. Personal opinion, Soccer is one of the most diverse sports around the world and it helps people see the passion toward that sport and how much people enjoy watching it or playing it. People can say the same thing about other sports.

5 College Junior

Weather: The sun shines about 300 days per year. Winter is nice and there is no snow!

3 College Senior

Majors: It was really simply because I transferred from a community college. Everything was online.

3 College Senior

Majors: I have learned a lot. I learned basics of management, accounting, finance, and entrepreneurship.

3 College Senior

Academics: In the smaller classes the professors pay attention to you more, but the bigger class you have to work to get your teacher to know you. Registration is done all online and is really simple to use.

3 College Senior

Academics: To Major in Business at ASU. You get the help of advisors, career coaches, internships, and jobs. They really try to help you out!

3 College Senior

Majors: I had an internship through ASU and it paid pretty good but there was little to no hours. I learned a lot but I wish I could be there more.

3 College Senior

Majors: As a Business Major I believe that ASU actually cares for their students. I do think they have a lot to improve with their professors but other than that I love it.

5 College Junior

Majors: Its a blast. The TEM program combines rigorous training with extremely knowledgeable faculty along side a student support net like no other! I love ASU and Ive never even seen the campus. But I heard the campus is lovely too!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: ASU offers shuttles to get to various locations in Phoenix as well as the additional campuses. The light rail is horrible and taxis are pretty expensive. Your best bet is getting your own car.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking passes for the year are a definitely not cheap, but they are a lot better than having to get a parking pass in a major city. Also, ASU has tons of parking garages located all over campus so there are always open spaces.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Due to it's size there is not a very strong sense of community. People stick to their own groups and don't make much of an effort to venture out. There are a lot of R.A planned student events, but not many people participate.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Despite it's notorious reputation as a party school, ASU has a great faculty who are very knowledgable in their specific fields. If you make use of the resources, you'll be able to get a great education for a phenomenal price. However, because the school is so large, you have to actively seek those resources out.

1 College Senior

Parking: The parking is a nightmare. It is overpriced, inconvenient after school hours, and isn't understanding towards students who don;t own a parking pass and need to park. The only reason parking doesn't deserve an F is because there are multiple parking garages.

2 College Senior

Computers: Printing is not free and only available through a minimum online payment of 10$. The computers are available at many places; however, the internet is slow sometimes. Just average

4 College Senior

Greek Life: The greek life on campus is very well organized, executed and incorporated into ASU life. They contribute to almost all ASU philanthropic events, have a strict risk management policy, and strive to shatter stereotypes. The reason the grade is a low A is because of some fraternities' illegal actions and the perception of non-Greek students. Most hear about the few tragic events, hear one Greek student be "stereotypical" and then pass judgements on how Greek life is conducted.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug is somewhat big at ASU, but there is a strong policy enforcement. There is no leniency when it comes to the law, in addition to a lack of peer pressure. There are so many students that there is no "bandwagon" effect.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments, condos and Houses are readily available around campus; however, the price is highly inflated. If a student wants to live a biking distance away, then the price expectation is just as costly as living on-campus. A student has to sacrifice price or distance, but it is still worth living off campus than on campus.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics at ASU have many varieties that can involve anyone. The registration process is well done and easily done.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are always something going on around ASU. It is located within college town. If students said that they had nothing to do, they simply have not stepped outside.

4 College Junior

Academics: ASU has been known as one of the best schools in the US. They are very well with working with the students and helping them achieve their ultimate goals.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus because I am attending ASU online.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Getting into ASU is very easy. It is staying at ASU that can be hard if one is easily distracted or unfocused.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is a fun town. There can be lots to do but in the summer it is too hot to want to go out to do anything. During the school year, there will be a lot of events on campus and all businesses surrounding campus will participate in some way. Tempe town lake tends to be an attraction, the marquee is a great concert venue, and mill ave is for drunken night life. A light rail ride to Phoenix offers more cultured experiences like a baseball game, a museum visit, or the opera.

1 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Horrible is the word. The cost of a permit are outrageous. The daily parking rates are also over priced. Finding a spot when students are migrating to the next class block is nearly impossible. Ride the light rail and walk.

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!
