3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not a part of Greek life, but I'm glad I didn't join. The school already has a bad reputation for being a party school, and most of that is attributed to the parties thrown by Greek life. Students involved in it don't really receive any added benefits to being in it; they get a more comprehensive social scene and are forced to commit to more social events than the average student, but many non-Greeks dislike the Greeks for this reason and also because they seem really entitled. This isn't every member of Greek life - I know plenty of nice people who are a part of it, but most of them just seem like they do it for the partying and not for the philanthropic aspect of it (that's another thing - Greek life says that philanthropy is important to them, but we hardly hear anything about it). As for residences, Greek housing is based everywhere on campus, so no matter where you live there's Greek life.

Athletics: Varsity athletics are a big deal on campus and generate a lot of support from students and faculty. Our school spirit is more geared towards football and basketball season, so other sports aren't really advertised to the students on the same scale. The facilities are very nice for the athletes - the football stadium is currently undergoing renovation, and the student athletes have a lot of amentities for playing Division I sports.

Weather: I am an online only student.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not too familiar with the Greek life.

3 College Junior

Transportation: With two universities across the street from each other there is constantly traffic.

3 College Junior

Computers: Minimal computers are only offered in the library, which is the furthest building from my dorm.

5 College Junior

Majors: At my small Christian school my major isn't offered on campus. My major program has a contract agreement with Cal State Fullerton. So for my upper division courses I walk across the street for a large classroom and college feel.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have internship experience writing for the Whittier Daily News. It is very time consuming but forcing me out of my comfort zone in a great way. I have learned a lot.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus security hut is extremely visible in the center of the parking lot with 24/7 assistance.

Health & Safety: I have only had 1 problem

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are various places to eat around Tempe campus, walkable and with car. Not that many healthy spots.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Always a computer available, tech support is helpful. Printing used to be free. The system is almost always reliable.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life, so I can't say. But from what I hear it is not for me. It is like trying to get into a cliche. Hazing is a waste of time, personally. There can be drama and that pressure of getting in.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I feel comforatable in my major. Advisors are so helpful, same as teachers if you ask questions. The workload is hard, but I think it prepares us. And the classes are very relevant to my major.

Health & Safety: It is generally safe on campus, but usually there is security depending on what campus you are on.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Always find something to do with friends for underage. Arizona is not known for that many club. Of age usually find something to do on Mill ave. Transportation isn't that hard if you are close to campus or next to lightrail.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of students are social drinkers, but most still dedicate time towards school. Drinking is more visible, than other drugs besides marijuana.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: No discrimination. I am from San Francisco so both areas are diverse, but with different majority races.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If you are doing nothing wrong you won't get affected, but any violation they will hit you hard with a warning, fine, or class. They aren't lenient if you have broken a rule.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For me, my dorm was spacious, very new, and very clean. My floor was really friendly and I made some friends that I still keep in touch with today. The have decent social events weekly and monthly. Trash, laundry, and computer access is all included. Very convenient to my classes.

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!
