Diversity: Diversity is obvious and appreciated amongst those who are attending ASU for educational purposes. I would be weary of greek life members and those who are extremists in their social, political, and religious activities. These ASU students tend to be close minded and ignorant. (unfortunately)

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The campus police are strict when it comes to students' safety. When students don't obey traffic laws or are drinking on campus, the police handle the situation at hand.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Arizona State is a place where any and all people are welcome. There are so many students that you are bound to find a club or someone that you can relate to. There are many different racial backgrounds found at ASU along with different political opinions.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is a big city in a small town. There are various activities surrounding ASU's campus such as hiking Camelback Mountain, shopping and dining in Old Town Scottsdale or Mill Avenue, or catching a Spring Training baseball game at the several stadiums around town. Tempe Towne Lake is a beautiful area to picnic, go fishing, or try out a paddle boat. The LightRail is conveniently located throughout campus for easy transportation to downtown Phoenix. Tempe has it all and is the perfect college town.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There is a fair amount of Greek life at ASU, but its not overwhelming. The sororities are relatively tame on campus, whereas the fraternities are rowdy and obnoxious.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking permits are increasingly expensive and are located far from campus classrooms.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They aren't that helpful when it comes to helping with tuition.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: lots of food selection the drawback it is all chain resturants

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: one thing im excited about is the smoking ban that starts this year. im an ex smoker and i despise the smell of cigarette smoke now

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: there is a large selection of housing off campus varies in price cheapest around $500 to about $1000 depending on size and quality. the cheapest would be to rent a house with a couple of people. the apartments closest to campus can be a little grimey

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.

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!
