College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I am not a student living on campus so I am unaware of the drug scene. I have heard the alcohol is a lot bigger problem than drugs

3 College Junior

Greek Life: From a non-greek perspective, greek life is apparent and alive, but nothing of extreme interest. I have plenty of friends in the various frats/sororitys, but its not as large of an impact on the social status or anything. More just.. the parties.

Off-Campus Housing: Much more affordable options off campus than directly on/near campus. Move your search to 5 mile radius if you want better pricing. Anything between Broadway and Rio Solado and from Price to the 101 will carry a price tag of about 500-600 per person. That's still better than the apartments directly next to campus where you pay 700 or more for a shared living space.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Besides the campus shuttle, light rail to Mesa and Phoenix is also available

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: There are numerous options available for housing off campus. From apartments, to condos, to houses. Cost varies on size, but beware of the party apartments, unless that's what you're looking for...

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: You get a warning for your first violation. It is extremely crowded and you should plan to leave early if you are going to park on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The first two weeks of school are he'll because its so hot. However, after that, the weather is simply put, amazing.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Getting around campus itself isn't bad. If you are leaving the library late at night, Safety Escort is a free service that runs after 8, and they will pick you up anywhere on campus for free. There is a bus system, but most students choose to take cabs to get to places off campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town of Tempe is a very vibrant community. I love going to eat in town with my girlfriend and seeing movies. There are a lot of college kids partaking of the many restaurants and bars.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are plenty of opportunities to be with friends and go out to parties. However, I find that I spend most of my time working in the lab, working out, or studying because my major is quite rigorous and demanding. Supporting the ASU sports teams by attending the games is a great way to socialize as well.

Campus Strictness: The parking around there is a hassle in itself. I got a warning ticket one time and went out there within 1 minute so I asked guy what this was and he said just leave it there and you can be here all day w/o putting more money in so I did and when I came out at end of day there was a real ticket on my car. Total joke!! I had to appeal it and won but still...

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sometimes there are campus alerts regarding a crime in progress so I am glad to be informed but sometimes concerned. It is good to be aware of my surroundings and what is going on.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: It sucks for graduate students or students coming back later in life. It shouldn't just be for essentially undergraduates coming from high school. Something is wrong with this picture. I'm an LL.M. (Master of Laws) with a specialty in Public Health Law. I'm not working so I don't have money. The program is almost $30K/year. It's expensive!! I should be offered some kind of scholarships or grants as upper upper level as this degree is above a JD. I even went to financial aid office and they tell me same thing that for your level there just really isn't anything for you! Sucks!! ;-(

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are sooo many places to eat off campus. No matter what mood you are in you will always find what you are looking for. Most of the people at the restaurants are students too, so they'll always be friendly and helpful.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife for students who are 21 and over is perfect because the bars are all on Mill Avenue. So it is easy to go there right after class. For people uner 21 I am not really sure where you would go to have fun, possibly a movie?

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I believe the financial aid system is very well here. As long as you know what you need, you will be fine. If you get lost or do not know where you are supposed to be going the staff there is pretty nice and will help you get to the right location.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The night life is just a walk away from campus. There are many different things to go to all in one street.From casual diners to fancy diners. There is also many ice cream paroles,group and ice cream sandwiches that are great places!!

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not aware of the Greek lie at asu and show no interest . Being part of the Greek life is a rule on the team that we may not be apart of it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am on a varsity team at asu and they do an amazing job at everything.from competing really well to having great opportunities in study hall such as mentors and tutors.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Transportation in and around the campus is good. Seems like most people have their own mode of transportation but those who do not seem to have no problems.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are plenty of transportation options ranging from the free shuttle to each of the campuses, the flash and city buses which make constant stops all around the school, and even the lightrail which has two stops right by the school. However, if you want to drive yourself to the school, then that's when things start to become expensive. There are options to park just about anywhere, but parking at ASU costs much more money than it should, if at all.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors here at ASU are fun to work with. They all want to help you succeed in school and in their class. ASU also provides us with a lot of resources that can help us succeed in school and even life. One of the resources that i used was the student success center. I was struggling with CHM 101 and went there to check it out. I really got help from them and I understood the material better. Later I tried the online tutoring which also worked.

3 College Junior

Academics: I’m majoring in Health Sciences and I think that the workload is ok. But sometimes it is a little too much and stress you a lot. This semester i learned how to balance school, work, and personal life by having a calendar. This semester was one of the best semester here because I really set myself to do well.

Majors: Nursing online. Love it. Easy access if you have a computer and internet.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am really happy with my major. I want to become an international corporate attorney. I believe that the courses I have taken as a global studies major will be applicable to my career goal. I do not have concerns about finding a job. I have to get through law school first.

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!
