5 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have 4 campuses total and the shuttle run between all of them coming every 30 minutes. This makes it easy to travel between campuses when necessary.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy being a communications major. Since it is so general I have a wide range of classes to choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have had an internship and it was an unpaid internship. It was in an office setting and I helped around with everyday errands.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The light rail is nice and so are the Orbit bus system and Flash. But they don't always go the route you need them to take.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are a lot of clubs and bars, specifically for 21 and older! Not much for 18 though.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is superb, blue emergency light phone booth are always within visibility, ASU police roams the campus with a dispatch time less than 2 minutes. Health center is decent. Not far from ASU there is Tempe St Luke hospital that has a decent emergency room

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Food options nearby is so so, I dont think there is a variety. Its a function of being a part of Phoenix metro area. Coming from a big city, Tempe somewhat lacks in food options

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Its an excuse for having a high school stratification of student body that is dominated by party goers. Though they have an extensive exam bank i heard. I do not think there is a need to pay dues and pretend to be someone so that the a group of people accepts you. Be who you are! Go make friends. Join clubs. try dancing. Try ultimate frisbee. You will find your niche naturally in this big school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not that great of basketball of football teams at the moment, but extremely fun games

5 College Freshman

Weather: great weather year round, but summers are unbearable

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I like off-campus housing because I have the opportunity to become independent and live by myself. However, when you look for an apartment, make sure you are ahead of everyone else so you don't get place on a waiting list! Also, depending on where you live, it could get rather expensive when it comes to the place.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Because I am a very hands on learner and I love working with machines, I absolutely love mechanical engineering. With it, I hope to become employed by a large engineering company and work my way up through the ranks to become a valuable asset!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a transfer student, I had no problems transferring into my major because I worked very hard at my other university and proved I was a great applicant. For me, as long as you have a strong GPA and the right test scores, you should not have to worry.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It has a very diverse amount of majors. Because this is a massive school, it has a great amount of funding to do many majors and average university will not be able to have. There are some majors here that I have never even heard of!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, but I plan to because an internship is a way to network with employers and also gain real world experience with your major! With my major, if you have a good GPA and personality, which I thing I do, I will have no trouble finding an internship!

4 College Freshman

Transportation: On the Tempe campus we have what is called the Flash Bus that has many stops and takes you to and from the main campus and parking areas. The busses come every 10-15 minutes and run pretty late. Tempe also has the light rail system that runs next to campus and is handy for those living a few miles away or that chose to commute and utilize the park and ride.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There isn't a whole lot to do in Tempe, and public transportation is kind of difficult to figure out. So, unless you have a car, be prepared to stay on campus for the majority of your time here.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit at ASU is like nothing I've ever seen before. The Sundevils mean business. I, personally, went to every football game and it was an amazing experience. I love being in the student section, you cannot sit down. We are like a family, all cheering for our team, together, as one.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: There is always something to do at ASU. The residence hall association is always putting on events. They have free food, music, and activities. We also have the SRC where we can work out or join a intramural team, or my favorite, go to the pool to tan.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I love ASU's campus. It is full of so much history, which still being modern. We have the MU, where students can go to eat, study, or just hangout. There are study areas everywhere around campus. We are offered multiple libraries, as well as computer labs. Something is always going on outside the MU, whether it's clubs, a blood drive, or music, there is always something to get involved in. The best thing is the football games. Everyone tailgates at lot 59 and then we all go into the stadium, decked out in maroon and gold. It's so much fun and truly a great experience.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Police are very strict and getting caught with any amount of weed or underage drinking will get you in trouble whether its a felony or fine.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I think there is the average demographic at ASU as at most state schools. There are people from many different races, religions, and cultures.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I live at the East Polytech campus in the family housing. ASU has recently constructed a new athletic center with several sports fields that seem to get a lot of use. I regularly walk the campus and always see groups practicing in the various fields. Campus housing also has meetings and family activities each month for the different housing areas.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining selections I graded are at the East Polytech campus. There are quite a few options within a few blocks. If you go two miles straight out of campus you are at the SanTan Mall area and there are many different types of restaurants there, from the typical fast food chains to upscale sit-down's.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Family housing at the East Polytech campus is something I have never seen at another school. It's old military housing but is a great affordable option for students with families.

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!
