4 College Sophomore

Computers: Plenty of computer labs/libraries at ASU. This semester there was free printing which was so nice. And the speed is average, depending on where you are. Printing is easy, but there are usually people there to help you if needed. However it's still nice to have your own computer and printer because when it's busy at the library and you have to print something "real quick" before your next class it can sometimes be a hassle.
I did give an A because the printing was free and at the computer lab I go to, there are rarely other people and I can quick get in and get out. However this rating does fluctuate with the computer lab you are in.

Guys & Girls: In my opinion, the Tempe campus has a lot of stuck-up jocks and preps. I never really got to know anyone there; no one was very friendly. I will say this though: LOTS of hot guys for people watching! At the Polytechnic campus though, it's much smaller and has a more community feeling. There are all kinds of cool people on the Polytech campus, and you can really get to know them because there aren't so many distractions from the huge feeling of the campus around you. The guys here are pretty cute too, if you're into the nerdy type -- most of the people on this campus are the science majors.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a pretty decent variety of food around the main campus, and it's all relatively convenient. It's always easy to find a pizza place to eat at after a hard-core studying session, which is a plus.

3 College Junior

Computers: It's alright, but when you really need a computer, you have to search for one. Also, if your bring your own laptop, the network gets overloaded so you have to try to get on the less used one. And there are NO OUTLETS for your laptop ANYWHERE! You have to strategically scope out where there is an outlet and get it as soon as someone walks away from it.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is expensive and even the cheapest you still have a long walk from your classroom. If your into exercising then it would be find, but the prices I'am not a fan of. I would reccomend getting a bike or skateboard to get around easier after you do find a parking space. Make sure to leave plenty of time before your class starts.

3 College Junior

Majors: As for myself being a transfer student it is a hassle going through the paper work and figuring out how I will be able to pay. The main criteria for admission was the GPA and the ACT or SAT scores. The GPA I have, but the ACT I have not tooken it. I thought being a transfer student from the same state it should be an easier proccess. I think it would help that the schools would work together to help students transffering. Advisors just tell you this is what you have to do, and just some bit of explaining, but one is pretty much on thier own. It would feel more appreciative that one is going to an university that would be more helpful through the process and make a new student feel welcomed.

College Junior

Majors: I have not been a part of any internships, but I plan on having an internship in the future to prepare me for my major. My major at the moment is Supply Chain management and hope to further my career with this program. The only jobs I have had growing up is working with my father in his business and helping my father run his restaurant. With the future internships I' am able to recieve I know it will help me be successful.

1 College Student

Health & Safety: The counseling services is terrible! I don't feel the satisfaction from it and they make you pay a large fee for it! If you have your own insurance better find services through them.

1 College Student

Facilities: Nice campus, but lack of activities besides sports.

3 College Student

Facilities: We have 250+ majors and plenty of organizations and clubs to join.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Health Sciences (pre -professional) - This is a great major for anyone interested in med school. You will have two lab sciences almost every semester. It will be challenging, but it's doable. There are also lots of staff members there to help you get internships and research.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Attending online classes, campus strictness does not apply

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are very helpful and want you to do well. Most grade fairly. Creativity, innovation, and real world application is always encouraged. Class sizes are usually small (downtown campus).

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of good places to eat near ASU's Downtown Campus. Be prepared to explore!

Recent Alumnus

Weather: I am taking online courses, so the weather is negligible to me

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are usually always fun events to attend (free food included). There are also plenty of parties if that's what you're into, but they all happen on the tempe campus, so you'll have to take the light rail or school shuttle if you live on another campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is okay, but you will gt tired of having the same food all the time.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The tutoring centers are available at more than just one location and also at different hours throughout the day/night.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are various amounts of helpful resources available to guide you through any major you may be dealing with. from tutoring to internships, ASU has all kinds of resources to help you succeed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everybody living on campus are going through the same things pretty much that youre going through so its not hard to meet new people and make new friends. The dorm life is fun and exciting depending on what you make of it. There are study rooms on almost every floor so its easy and convenient for you to get a group of friends together to study and have fun at the same time.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There isn't much to do out in Arizona. The house parties aren't really fun or exciting. And the clubs aren't fun unless your 21+. Also, the clubs can get boring really quick.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love the weather in Phoenix/Tempe. It is only super hot during the summer but the rest of the year the weather is wonderful. It allows for outdoor activities year round and because it is sunny most of the time, this presents a more cheerful atmosphere. You don't usually have to worry about the cold. My recommendation is to take plenty of water with you whereever you go because you will need it.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Kids drink and kids smoke weed. It is not too bad, but it is still frequent on and around campus.

3 College Junior

Weather: Always great sunny weather. If you are not at ASU during summer and are from out of state and go back home. It is perfect. If you stay for summer get ready for the worst time of the year.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I mean I hear a lot of students getting scholarships and such. I am an out of state student and didn't receive a dime, but federal loans through FAFSA. Kind of disappointed.

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!
