3 College Freshman

Diversity: there is a large amount of diversity and people from all backgrounds that get good grades and are very interesting

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: they are very strict and help keep the campus safe.

4 College Junior

Academics: I have learned so much since I began at ASU. There are many resources available and the teachers are all very engaged in their students and helping them succeed.

3 College Senior

Majors: I like my program because it focuses directly in what my interests are.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys are a lot more friendly and fun than the girls. Most girls are very stuck up and rude. The guys are more willing to just kick back and have fun.

4 College Junior

Academics: Teacher's are all very friendly and well engaged in what they are teaching. It makes it much easier to enjoy and pay attention.

4 College Junior

Majors: As a Human and Family Development student I would say that i could not have been happier with the choice I made. I would totally do the whole thing over again. I am studying something that I love and will have a career that I could not be happier proceeding in. With this major I can continue my career goals of working with children and being about to help people and patients in the process. I think that my main concern in finding a career would be that there are many options to chose from. My school helps create interships and mock positions to help students find out exactly what they want to persue a career in when thei schooling is finished and a degree is earned.

3 College Junior

Majors: I think the hardest part about getting into my major was all of the classes I took to get to that point. I was accepted into the program based on previous academic work i had done in high school for the university program i was accepted into. I say for anyone that is looking for any type of fulltime major at ASU to truly consider doing the MSHP (Math and Science Honors Program) they offer for high school students. For my accepted major only 75 stdents were accepted from the state so a competitive GPA, being involved, and well rounded were all important aspects the university took into consideration for accepted applicants

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You have the convenience of having multiple off campus dining but the cost of these places was to much for me, for a low income student.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I have a had a great time at ASU as a music therapy student. I enjoy the high expectations I have from the school of music and also the freedom to study outside of music. The workload is very manageable as long as you don't fall behind on your instruments or your non-music classes. The music therapy professors are some of my favorite people and they encourage early involvement with certified therapists and with the ASU music therapy clinic.

Campus Housing: Living on campus can be very expensive, especially in Barret. However there are good dining option, plenty of social life, friendly people, and close convient shopping.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Across the four campuses I can't think of a field that isn't offered and opportunities for individualized or specialized learning are easy to find and take advantage of.

3 College Senior

Computers: I graded this part low due to during FINALS week, I was working away on a paper, then the computers flickered, which resulted in losing my entire paper. I was extrememly disappointed with this, since I had to start all over. From this experience, I have learned to save my document every 5 minutes, so I do not lose anything, again.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I love the freedom of adhering to my own rules, instead of from Resident assistants.

4 College Senior

Weather: Can not complain on the weather in Arizona, as most relocate for good climate

3 College Senior

Academics: Not much problems except with Financial Aid office

3 College Senior

Academics: As the courses are great, but I prefer in classroom interactions, as most of the courses are heading to online, which I am not too fond of.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Never really heard of them, but during school functions - I see numerous frats

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I think there is always room for improvement. For the most part ASU is greatly supported by local business and organizations. For instance my employer was once a HUGE supporter of ASU. That has since changed as years have gone by simply because the company has experienced massive change and the previous leaders who were extremely active in the community and grew up in AZ, attended ASU were always quick to support the ASU cause.

3 College Junior

Computers: The computer labs are very nice (clean, modern, pleasant). They are usually always crowded, and even more crowded during midterms and finals. Usually, you can find a seat. Most students do own their own laptop, and I think that is the most convenient. The campus does have its own wifi network, but it is a little slow outside of computer labs. Wifi is often spotty in Barrett, my residential community. Printing is a pain if you have to do emergency printing. You have to have to set aside a certain type of university dollar to use at the printing stations (located within every library and computer lab). You have to do that before a major emergency print job because it can take time if it's your first time at it it. In Barrett, you have to go to an office to buy a print card, so make sure you're not printing late at night with no money on your print card when the office is closed. It is definitely best to have your own printer.

4 College Junior

Academics: The psychology program is great. There are plenty of researches that you are encouraged to get into, and they are all unique in their nature of study, hours, and credit/pay. They are generally all easy to fit into your weekly class schedule. They are very hands on and give you good experience. The courses are great. The professors are very educated and enthusiastic in their fields.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the psychology program was simple enough. There are a few extra surveys, pre-enrollment assignments, and things you have to do, but they are not difficult. There are also orientations for every major a couple of times in the beginning of the school year, so it is easy to get started.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There exists diversity in all areas, including ethnicity, economic background, political beliefs, religion, and sexual orientation. Students are very accepting of this diversity. There are also many clubs and organizations on campus devoted to diversity in groups. For example, there are clubs for major political parties, ethnic organizations, and religious clubs.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I like most of the restaurants near campus. They are all either within walking distance or a very short drive away. Many of the place are alternative or progressive types of restaurants as they feature many all-natural and organic choices and are vegetarian and vegan friendly. The restaurants' range greatly in variety, with prices that range from very affordable to very expensive, very casual to fine dining, cafes to bistros, chains to local originals, and different styles from American to Ethiopian foods. There are, however, only a handful of restaurants, and I feel like I have tried everything already. These places do often attract a younger, university crowd, but they are suitable for any ages and most for families.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am attending the ASU BSW (school of social work). I feel very fortunate that I was finally able to return to school and I am enjoying the program very much. I attend the ASU Tucson Component, in Tucson Arizona. The staff are very helpful and the instructors are great. Everyone invests their time in ensuring that each student is successful. ASU partners with many agencies throughout Arizona to provide a full range of social work internship opportunities.

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!
