4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The area is beautiful, but the congestion of traffic can, at times, be difficult to manage. That said, the university boasts plenty of recreational facilities and shopping locations for those interested; likewise, there is a library for every major topic located around campus that is both stunning in appearance and quality of material possessed. There are some occasional instances of safety issues during the nights for those who venture a bit too far from campus, but in totality the campus is extremely safe.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I myself am not much into athletics, so my opinion is VERY limited in terms of education. However, I have noted a great degree of student pride in the athletic program which often wins against opponents of the university, so I should imagine it is very good. The pride at ASU is great, but not so much that it is annoying, meaning that there will be no painted streakers running through campus. Student life takes sports seriously, but not fanatically, making it a very good school for both those who adore sports and those who could not care less.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Arizona State University because of money, I will not lie to any reader of this post, and being subjected to the common stereotypes regarding ASU, it being a party school where only the "hopeless" go to get "educated," I felt that I might have made a poor decision. However, I found that after the first two weeks the school was actually a great place for those who wanted to learn. The university offers a myriad of great resources to assist students struggling with a concept of a class, the professors are not only knowledgeable, but extremely helpful to those in need of assistance. The campus, despite some segments currently under development is beautiful and perfectly equipped to support the needs of any student, even if a "necessity" of one's college life is a green lawn and neo-classical architecture.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: ASU is one of the best places for a social life! The night scene has many feautres! Great nigh clubs, bars, etc.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wish I would have joined a sorority! I will my next semester!

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I actually live at home. It isn't the best situation, but commuting is not that bad.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Although there are tons of apartments in the Phoenix area, finding one that is available is tricky! I've looked at tons of them and they would show you a model, but then they say "oh, we will have to put you on a waiting list." So frustrating, why couldn't they say it wasn't available in the first place?

4 College Junior

Academics: I am satisfied with the education I am receiving but it is not an easy business college. I am a business management major and there are plenty of internship opportunities as well as opportunities within the business college to excel. The teachers are all very helpful it seems like which makes the experience much better and the opportunity for success better as well.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Everyone ought to know the night life at ASU is second to none! There are clubs and bars all over the place and plenty of people to party with. Everything is fairly inexpensive and conveniently located as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms at Arizona State University are hit or miss. They can be nice and new or old and run down. The funny part is you pay about the same price for either one. You have to be real quick if you want to lock up an opportunity at a nice one.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The place is pretty small for my wife and I to live but it is extremely cheap which is the goal when trying to get us both through school. It is a fair distance from campus but is close to the freeway. The area is nice and has lots to do nearby making it a good location definitely doable for two students.

4 College Senior

Majors: I am currently attending Arizona State University to receive my Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Every one of my professors has taught me invaluable information that I hope to apply in the future. Clinical, cognitive, developmental, and social psychologists have blended perspectives to help mold my own, and have excited me to join the field that they have dedicated their lives to.

4 College Senior

Diversity: ASU's unfortunate reputation for being a party school has shadowed the vast diversity this campus displays. The students originate from countless countries around the globe including China extending to Brazil. Religions, political beliefs, and sexual orientation are demonstrated through unique actions and languages.

5 College Junior

Academics: I came to ASU in order to pursue a degree in Air Traffic Management. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The program is amazing. The professors are all extremely knowledgeable and willing to help out whenever you need it. Workload is reasonable, you have to put in time to do well but it is interesting stuff so it never seems like busy work.

4 College Junior

Facilities: At the Polytech campus there is a new athletic center that is very well put together, and never gets overly busy. Everyone knows one another so it is a very friendly place. Always something going on with friends and there is a student activity or two every week that keep students busy.

4 College Junior

Computers: There is always a computer to use. I have never seen all the computers being used, even during finals. Printing on campus can get expensive if you are printing a lot. Other than that though, I have never had a problem with the network or anything.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The west campus at ASU just had new dorms built and they are really nice. There is also a new cafeteria in which students can eat that serves good food. Living on campus can be a good experience, and I have heard about a lot of good experiences. Students meet a lot of people, who quickly become friends. There are people to always study with since they all live on campus. The amenities are good because there is a swimming pool, a common kitchen, and brand new common room.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at ASU are a big part of campus life. The students at ASU have a lot of school pride and we are huge supporters of our athletes and competition. There is a lot of student involvement in our school sports, and the team's performance is usually pretty good. ASU has some of the best athletic facilities in the country, which contributes to the success of athletics.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene is not too big at ASU, but that is probably because I do not hang out with people who do drugs. Drinking alcohol is a much more practiced activity, especially since Mill Street is right next to the school. Mill St is a row of bars and clubs that allow students to go out and drink right after school. I feel like the enforcement is pretty good on campus. I do not hear many stories of students getting caught with alcohol or drugs on campus, which is pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a lot of computer to use at Arizona State University and sometimes most of the students don't use them. I will say some of them are slow to log in, but after that there okay to use. WiFi is not a problem, but there were only two times it wasn't working.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus isn't much of a hassle, just be sure you can afford it. It also help if you get a space early since it becomes crowded in the afternoon.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: ASU Football has got talk of going to the Rose Bowl this year. Baseball and Softball are at the top like usual. IM sports are also huge and very competitive

Facilities: ASU Poly Campus has an high altitude chamber that can simulate high altitudes. The Pilots use it to figure out their symptoms of hypoxia

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Options for off-campus dining are not as great at the Poly Campus. Better have transportation to the off-campus dining. If you do you will enjoy some great food

3 College Freshman

Facilities: All Depends what Campus you are on. If you are on the Tempe Campus then you have it all. Some of the other campuses don't have it top notch like the Tempe Campus

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!
