3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are a lot of rules, it just depends how you try to go about following them or not whether you get caught or not

3 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the school itself and the staff seems pretty good so far, however, there are a lot of students that have other things on their mind rather than school.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: This question is funny to me. C'mon it's ASU! There is something to do every single night of the week, come the weekend Mill Ave, the Vue, Vista. Those places all get crazy. There are also several 18+ clubs in the area for those under 21.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Here at ASU the sports are exciting, fun to watch, and just a great time overall. The school does a very good job at getting students and other fans really involved with the teams. Everyone really feels like family.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus Bus or Hike – ASU is a large campus. Parking permits are crazy expensive.
Most have to park miles away.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process was fine. I didn't have to do anything special. Getting in to the major is really not that hard, but staying with is the most challenging part.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Here at the west campus, there are new gym and dining pavilion services. Both have a diverse selection within and are very convenient. The staff are all very kind and very helpful. There are also a lot of organizations to become involved in, as well as a good arts scene at this campus. If you have a mind to be involved, you can be.

5 College Junior

Majors: I'm a Social and Behavioral Sciences major, and I enjoy it. It's a fascinating field, and a general jumping-off point for a variety of paths in grad school. I used to be part of the Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance program, and that one is great as well. If you're into psychology, art, sociology, cultural anthropology, music (especially experimental music), performance, political sciences, or anything like these, then I highly recommend ASU.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have had a good experience with the professors who I have met and with the opportunities that I have found here. Before going to ASU, I was not a very good student. I was somewhat of a trouble-maker. Now, I am in the honors college and have discovered a love of learning. The vast majority of professors here are talented and very interesting people. My one complain, however, is the cost of everything here. I don't personally face this problem, because my father teaches here, but I often hear about how expensive tuition is. I know several people who have elected not to go here because of the cost.

I do, however, pay for my own supplies and for my room and board. While they are all quality, I do wish things were less expensive. If I didn't have money saved up, I would have a much harder time with things here.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: ASU offers the best resources to succeed. The facilities are both modern and clean, and ASU offers the best events

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The freedom that comes with off-campus housing is great! No one likes to be told what to do or act if they are paying somewhere to live. Thos some places are really expensive, there are other ways you can have that freedom and still pay as little as possible! Off-Campus housing is a great choice you just have to be smart about it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: At first they where great. They had very helpful and kind staff. But towards the middle of the semester, they always switch out the staff and it looked as if new members where hired. That made the process a lot harder because the individuals did not explain things right and didn't give out valid information on processes people needed to take to continue recieveing financial aid.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't dominate but it is very involved in the university. At this university everyone is part of the community.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: This university takes pride in all academics including sports. The university has coaches and counselors that supports every student in all means necessary.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus places to eat are good, fair cost and accessible.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't see it happening, but I'm sure it does somewhere here.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: We have a big reputation for being a party school. Mill Avenue is full of bars and night clubs.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I know the athletics, such as football, are important but I don't evolve myself or update myself on them. I get emails about only the football team in football season. Awareness for myself to be involved isn't provided.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The response time for any Safety department at ASU is great and they definitely do what they have to make sure the campus is safe.

3 College Junior

Facilities: We are definitely one of the best party schools in the nation. We also have some of the best academics in the nation, but everyone just sees ASU as a party school and it overshadows the great academics that we have.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Some of the best athletics is here right at ASU. Being party of PAC12 and actually compete in every sport has athletics being one of the best.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you love Mexican food and American food you will love the food near campus. Its not expensive to get a fabulous burrito or a decent burger. If you're into different types of food like Thai or French you might have to travel a bit further from campus however since Tempe/Phoenix is so large you can pretty much find whatever you want for a decent price.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The girls are hot, given the heat of arizona they often wear very skimpy shorts and shirts too. aside from that I can't give you much else.

3 College Senior

Majors: I would say its no different that the selection at any other schools. However the Business and journalism schools are great though.

5 College Senior

Weather: Its Arizona. The weather is fantastic save of course for the 115 days in the middle of July; but If you're not here for summer it's fantastic

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!
