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.

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!

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The housing is great for freshmen as they all get a place to live for a year! Everyone lives with people in their major which is very helpful when it comes to academic success. Although upperclassmen do not have as many places to choose from.

4 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is very accepting and has a great atmosphere. They are all very friendly. The only thing that I would recommend is for them to get more Greek housing!

4 College Junior

Academics: I am very pleased with my school's academics. All of my classes have been very intriguing and the workload is manageable. I have been enrolled in the Communication program since I first registered and I couldn't be happier. The range of topics involved within this major provides me with the opportunity to be knowledgeable in many areas while still maintaining the purpose of increasing my communication competence.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The main dining facility offers a variety of options for students to choose from. However, many of these options are fast food, which I try to avoid. I think the school should implement healthier restaurants into the dining hall to encourage students to live a nutritionally sound lifestyle.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus so I can't rate the housing with confidence. However, the dorms that I have visited are quite spacious and well maintained. The social atmosphere is very active with people skateboarding, biking, jogging, etc. Although peaceful at times, campus life seems to be a constant buzz of social engagement and determined students fulfilling their daily duties.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation options are effective and convenient. The recently installed light rail near the campus is great for both local and long distance transportation. The bus system adds yet another option for students to take advantage of with its conveniently located stops throughout campus and around the city. Out of the various transportation possibilities, these two are the most affordable.

3 College Junior

Parking: Campus parking is limited and very expensive. So expensive, in fact, that a ticket received for parking in a restricted space is less costly than an actual permit. However, trying to park off campus can be difficult due to restricted areas and inconvenient locations. This campus is in dire need of more cost effective, convenient parking structures.

2 College Junior

Computers: Many computers aren't in working condiction. It takes a computer quite a long time to log in or off. Printing is quite expensive at about 12 cents for a black and white page. Sometimes the command to add a certian document to the print anywhere profile doesn't register.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants on campus in the union building as well as just near by the campus

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: We're not the number one party school for nothing! Wish I was 21 to go to the bars/clubs on Mill Ave.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Lived at Taylor Place on the downtown phoenix campus. Do not expect to eat well

Drug Safety: A lot of people use pot and pills. Known as the #1 party school, expect lots of alcohol at parties

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is warm and nice all year long. It is so nice to be able to walk around in flip flops all year long if you wanted.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students are involved in everything. There is never a lack of something to do or a form of school involvement that you can become invested in if you wanted.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are decent programs but i have had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with professors who seem to not really care about the fact that they are teaching students and we would like to learn from 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!
