3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is as normal as any off-campus housing. There are many amenities at most places, including utilities, pools, gyms, and lounges. The prices are kind of high, and they do not always provide transportation shuttles to campus. Most of them are very safe and secure.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities at ASU are top notch. The athletic center is beautiful with many modern amenities, as well as a pool and racquetball court. Many of the Arizona native plants and desert landscape is incorporated into the campus spaces.

1 College Junior

Facilities: The social scene at ASU is somewhat dismal. Many students live in the area so many are still hanging out with the kids they went to highschool.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Arizona State University does a great job at incorporating diversity and strives to showcase the large Hispanic and Native American influences that AZ has to offer/

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Variety of sports to choose from and the best university to represent. There are allot of good athletes that graduate from Arizona State University and have a successful future.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There values are great. Also there food is delicious and great to eat. There are many places to choose.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There is no typical look for an ASU girl or guy. Everyone has their own individuality and that's what makes ASU a great place to be. It has such a big diversity and no judgment on their students that everyone has a different background and they are still accepted for who they are.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Public transportation is really convenient at Arizona State University. They even have buses that run from different campuses in case students attend them and need a ride from one campus to another. They also have another bus that runs around the campus in case one class is on the other side of the campus so the students do not have to walk very far.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of parking spaces as well as apartments around the school. However, sometimes it is a bit expensive but it is a very safe environment.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There are so many different ethnicity and religions that are welcomed at the school. I always noticed there were a lot of foreign exchange students and from what I hear is that they love it here as well. There is also clubs for different types of religions as well as ethnic groups in which they still welcome everyone even if they aren't the same religion or ethnicity.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting into a new major is relatively easy. All that needs to be done is to see a counselor for that type of school and decide your future classes. Changing or adding a major can get more complicated depending if it is in the same school or not. If it is for different departments, the student must get the approval of their original counselor and the new counselor. The reason why this is difficult is because there is miscommunication and bureaucracy to go through. Gaining or changing a major in the same department is easy because the student only needs to meet with the counselor that they already have.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: If you have a bike, make sure you have a good bike lock. Don't leave any belongings of value either. ASU is just like any other place, if you leave your stuff, things will get stolen. There are a good number of emergency telephones and campus police are always around if you need them. I feel pretty safe as long as I'm on a bike or walking with someone.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is always a place for students to hang out. The best place is at the Memorial Union where there is food and places to study. The library is nice, especially during finals week. It can get crowded but they offer free coffee and snacks for those that are there all night studying. There is a gym that is free if you are an ASU student (technically not since the payment is included in the tuition so why not go there?). There are really cool traditions, especially during homecoming week- my favorite is the lantern walk.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: ASU has a strong business school but the language programs are a little outdated and unhelpful. The facilities are all around nice with some peaceful and unique areas to sit and talk with friends but there is a lot of construction that sometimes is just not needed that makes you wonder where your tax and tuition are going. There are lots of clubs to join as well to meet other people that share the same interests. Campus life is also really nice but again, it's nice if you have friends to hang out with.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The campus life at ASU is amazing. Between 517+ clubs that do things regularly and seemingly infinite Greek Organizations there is much to get involved with. The campus has a regular farmers market during some weeks. Live music happens directly outside of the Student Center on a regular basis. There are also exhibitions and activist groups displaying there beliefs throughout the campus all the time as well.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food available off-campus is awesome, however the neighborhood is somewhat bad. I've had my first car broken into twice, then had it stolen, this is at three different restaurants. My mother also had her car broken into while we were eating after one of my finals. Aside from that they are relatively cheap, and relatively convenient. Almost all of them offer student discounts. However, due to my automobile issues I stopped eating directly off campus so I couldn't tell you what the best restaurants are.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I have always been a challenged student with my grades, in other words I have to work hard for a passing grade.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments in Tempe are kind of expensive if you want to live in a decent one because of the lack of space. There are some pretty nice deals but most of the apartments around campus don't have housing during the Summer which limits the opportunities. There are also limits on leases so that if you need to move out during a month that is not on the lease, you are screwed. The plus side: there is public transportation everywhere. You can either pay for the bus, buy a semester/year long bus pass that is a great deal and can save you money on the lightrail, or take the free neighborhood bus that will still bring you to campus. However, there are a lot of weirdos so you've got to be careful.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a lot of bars that are for 21 and older but there are also a lot of other friendly places since the Tempe Campus is right at Mill Avenue. House parties are still more fun since it's cheaper and the people that you want to be around are there. There are also things to do on campus at night but mostly on Fridays. They show movies that haven't been released on DVD, have bowling discounts, and more.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It gets incredibly hot during Summer and lasts until the end of Fall which makes walking to classes miserable. I prefer the Winter and Spring because the weather is perfect and it makes people want to go outside more. At least the classes are well air-conditioned!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: This is an area of improvement for ASU. There seems to be a great lack of communication in the financial aid office. If you are willing to stand in line, wait on the phone, or wait in an online chat room for answers, then you MAY receive a response.

4 College Junior

Majors: I believe that I have chosen the best major within the business school. I feel like my degree in Accountancy (and another in Finance) will always be relevant and the field will always be hiring. It is a great feeling to be so secure but to also love what I am doing.

5 College Junior

Majors: Through the Accounting Scholars Program, I was matched up with a firm for a spring internship. It was absolutely the best experience I have had so far. The internship was in my future profession of public accounting. It was great pay and I gained a lot of knowledge that I know will be relevant when I have a full time position. Additionally, I earned a full time job offer at this company for when I am done with my Master of Accountancy graduate program.

4 College Junior

Majors: I really enjoyed my undergraduate education at Arizona State University. There is a sense of community within the business school. Also, I was admitted into an accounting program that allowed me to skip taking the GMAT and paying application fees to enter the graduate program. I had a great opportunity to earn an internship position.

4 College Junior

Majors: Accounting is one of the toughest majors in the School of Business to get into. They admit quite a lot of students to the program though. GPA requirements are slightly higher.

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!
