3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The campus itself is very pleasant...the surrounding areas, however, is somewhat run down. Mill Ave. can look very nice during the day time, but it could be sketchy at night.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is beneficial to those who knows how to manage their times and have their priorities set. It gives more diversity to the atmosphere of campus. However, most of the Greek students are viewed as party lovers by the non-Greeks.

Parking: Parking can be difficult at times, especially in the morning due to the number of students driving to school for their classes, permit cost is slightly more expensive if the lot is closer to your classes. Having a car isn't necessary for some students as there is a light rail next to the school, so it's pretty convenient. But if you're driving, be sure to have a parking permit in your car at ALL TIMES.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Very good public transport in the ASU downtown phoenix campus. There is a Light Rail Station just next to the dorm and school buildings. You can get a transit pass at any light rail station or even online and the prices are very reasonable, there is reduced fare for youths age 6-18. There is also city buses as well.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mill Avenue features some of the tastiest hot spots and restaurants! There are always coupons for students too.

Diversity: As the largest public university in the United States, ASU is a true melting pot of ethnic background.

Health & Safety: There has been a few occasions where I have felt unsafe. Sometimes I come home on my bike at midnight or even later from soccer, or parties and it can be freighting. Another instance when I was scared was when there was a shooting ande kidnapping less than two miles away from my dorm. Those are the only times I have ever felt scared because my dorm room locks automatically after I leave.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are so many girls at ASU it doesn't matter how many times you get shut down because there are so many others. There are many soroity girls, athletic girls, geeks, city girls, country girls, religious girls, funny girls and many of those girls are pretty and smart.

Academics: I came to Arizona State University because it is highly ranked in the W.P. Carrey Business School. The campus is big and beautiful with friendly people all over the surroundings. The weather is always great and most of the proffessors I have had been none short of great. They are always available for email, office hours or before and after class. Class discussions are encouraged in both smaller and bigger classes because it makes the time go by faster, a better way of learning and it is fun.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is very prominent at ASU. It does really help make the school seem smaller and get you a ton of friends all at once. I have lots of different friends in them and they are very involved with charities and different school events. Theres only one form of greek housing which is Aldephi. Most fraternities have apartment complexes off campus though.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of chain and local places. They are all so tasty and most have excellent service. Old Town Scottsdale is close with lots of fun places to eat.

Academics: I came to Arizona State University because the business school is one of the best.

2 College Freshman

Academics: There is a ton of work, the advisors are no help, teachers aren't accessible, and the computer programs crash.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are mainly the typical college guys, working out and hooking up with girls. The girls are nice. They are hot, but some are total skanks

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am in the Business (tourism) program and this semester is my first semester officially in the business program. It is very rigorous, but I like it a lot. I can tell that I am at a great school for my program and I am taking full advantage of the free tutoring they offer here. I am not too worried about getting a good job after graduating from the business program here. I have heard nothing but great things about it. I have nothing but good to say about it.

Weather: The winters are absolutely beautiful! I love the sunshine and warm weather. The summers are brutal, and May and September are still really hot months. During those months, walking and riding your bike is horrible. Other than that, the weather is amazing! The sunshine helps when you are feeling homesick!

Transportation: I have a car on campus now so the transportation is great for myself! The bus schedule and light rail isn't bad. You just need to be careful with the homeless people!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mill Avenue has a great variety of yummy food! It is in walking distance too. Mill is very quant, and the variety of trees and landscaping makes it fun to walk from store to store.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Traffic is horrible. Most students living around campus suck at driving. A lot of sketchy people live in Tempe as well. There are cultural centers around and fun things to do. Most students can be friendly, especially if you are 21+. ASU is definitely a party school.

3 College Senior

Majors: Some classes are really interesting, but some are ridiculously hard. I plan on becoming a community college history professor, and I believe ASU is helping me reach this goal. If I could do my life over, I might be a zoology major instead because I love animals.

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It seems that socially, girls and guys alike are really into partying. I live with 4 ASU guys that have parties at our house every weekend. I am fine having fun every once in a while, but every weekend is a little out of control. I work full time as well as I am a full time student, so I need my weekends to study.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of options, but most of them are pretty pricey. You have to investigate to find a good value. Make sure your place has some sort of transportation to the school if you don't want to pay for a parking pass.

4 College Junior

Computers: All the computers and labs have new equipment and software. Network is reliable, but speed is usually mediocre. I would suggest a personal computer just because during finals, it's hard to get to a computer. The labs aren't open 24/7

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are really outdated and old. Only the newest ones are okay to live in. ASU is renovating some now, and constantly building upper-classmen housing, but freshman have to pay more for a decent place to live. I highly suggest Hassayampa! You will become close with everyone on your floor.

4 College Junior

Weather: Summer 24/7 – I love the heat, but you definitely have to get used to it. In the fall, it is 110 degrees outside and everyone is sweaty and smells like BO. It got a little cold in January, but overall it hardly rains or gets windy here. It feels amazing at night most of the time. You can go out in shorts and flip flops in November. Pool parties every weekend in the spring. I love it.

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!
