4 College Junior

Campus Dining: I don't eat at any of the dining halls, but the restaurants found on campus are clean and offer good food. The only thing that is kind of bad is how crowded it can get, but I don't know if there is much you can do with crowd control during lunch time.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: For 75% of the year, you are in relatively bearable sun. 20% is spent roasting in the blistering sun of the summer, so walking around in 115 degree weather is not fun. Then the last 5% is the joke of a winter we get which lasts about a month and a half. If you love the sun, then this is the place for you, if not, then... you wont be a happy camper here.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Arizona State University are of the highest caliber in my opinion. We have the enormous ASU Wells Fargo arena, where some of the most riveting football games are held. Our workout facilities are state of the art. They have the latest workout, fitness and training machines, basketball courts, tennis courts, running track, soccer field, racquetball courts, swimming pools and more!

5 College Senior

Majors: They offer a wide variety of majors. In addition, many different ways to take the classes.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's obviously hot most of the time, which can be unbearable when you have to walk all the way across campus for a class.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a wide variety of places to eat off-campus, most within walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are several different computer commons on campus with an adequate number of computers available as well as helpful staff.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was an education major at ASU and the program provided us with great opportunities for learning. Through our program we worked at different schools with internships which helped us learn so much more about what our career was going to be like. I was placed for my student teaching in what I had asked for and had a great experience. In my circumstances we were not paid but after my student teaching I had many job opportunities. I was able to start subbing right away, got a job teaching summer school, and then got offered a contract job right after. Overall I had a great experience and would hope that others do as well.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There is a TON of off campus housing around ASU but you really have to be careful about where you chose to live. There are places that are super close to campus but charge way to much for what kind of living they are giving you. Sometimes it's better to live a little further away for a better place to live and just take the light rail or Orbit to school instead and have a nicer place to live.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: You will find all different types of people at ASU...my only thing is how un-classy some of the students have become. Girls walk around with body parts hanging out of their clothing that not everyone necessarily wants to see. Other than that, it's great to see all the different cultures and religious groups that are on the campus. The diversity is probably the best thing I can say about the students at ASU. It's nice how there are different clubs, sports, sororities etc for every interest, religion, and gender.

3 College Junior

Academics: I am a transfer student and I have had good teachers and bad teachers just like any other campus. I just have a problem with the school on how when the whole class is having trouble with a teacher they do nothing about it. They are low on teachers for my major and they give us graduate students who don't care to teach us and then we are wasting paying lots of money for no education.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is by far one of the best cities to live in if you are a college student. If we had a good greek system here I think ASU would be by far the top place to go to. With great academics and atmosphere nothing beats ASU.

Campus Dining: I go to Arizona State University Polytechnic campus and the food there is just terrible. No selection at all and in the foods they have it is just so bad. They have a decent place for sandwich's and a decent hot dog joint, but other than that the place has the worst food ever. Tempe has a lot of better options.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are a lot of international students here, a lot more than what I expected. IT's hard to say though because there are so many people from in-state. There are a lot of people that share their religion and other beliefs on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: I don't use the dining areas very often but when I do I enjoy that there are places like Taco Bell and Subway. I like the options available.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The labs and simulators here are amazing. Arizona has a great resource of things that you can use.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: People are always trying to help you no matter what subject it is. If you need help there is always someone there to help you.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are pretty much all done behind the scenes so there not noticeable unless your with the people who do them.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Something is always happening on campus, very sociable and late nights

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Tempe can get pretty bad at night even on campus, lots of thefts.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you like parties, then ASU is the place for you. Everyone drinks, even if they are underage. Mill Avenue is nothing but trashy bar and nightclubs and there is lots of smking and drugs. The campus police tend to be lazy and there is not a lot of law enforcement on campus. ASU is absolutely a party school.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: Traffic is always terrible, especially when there is an event. The lightrail can also be very sketchy all day and it's slow. There are also a lot of homeless people that like to hang around the parking lots at night. If you plan to park far away on campus or take the bus or lightrail, bring pepper spray!

3 College Freshman

Computers: Lots of computers are available on campus and at the library. However the network can be a little slow or even not work at times. But, no more than what is to be expected. The classroom computer labs tend to be very slow logging in.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I would not recommend Arizona State to anyone. The people are rude and the school tends to care more about sports and fraternities than they do academics. While some of the professors that I have had are wonderful, others are just downright lazy. There is no diversity at all and there are far too many bars and clubs around campus.The campus is overly crowded and messy. Some of the faculty here are not at all helpful and just don't want to be bothered.

College Senior

Majors: Many of my friends have gotten internships, but I have not. It is something that you should look into early in your college career since many opportunities get taken very quickly due to a high volume of students. Having an internship always looks great on a resume.

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!
