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.

Computers: The network, reliability and speed of the computers at Arizona state is about average. If your looking too use or print off of a computer in the computer commons, plan on about a ten minute wait, but no worries once you actually get a computer the internet and computer its self is very reliable

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The dining options at Arizona state University are very broad. I feel like there are many options on campus, such as the Memorial Union, and the various dining halls on campus. They all include your meal plan, along with M and G dollars, which you can also use at the convenience stores on campus. Outside of campus, you also have a huge selection, including Mill Ave and other great restaurants within walking distance.

Academics: I believe that the academics at Arizona state university are absolutely remarkable. Most of the class sizes are fairly small and I feel like I have a personal relationship with all if my professors. I also love my counselor, he has gotten me though more than I could ever imagine. I would give the academics at Arizona State an A+.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: Not sure what to rate ASU Polytech. It's considerably less populated than the other 3 campuses in central Phoenix. A lot of the students I noticed appear to be serious college students, older people/married ones going back to school to obtain a degree. It's far from a party school and is the "ghost town" of a university campus from what I've seen.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here is utterly unpredictable. It can be 30 degrees in January one day, then 75 the next day and raining. The later months such as April, May, and August are sweltering here.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are very into frat life as well as working out and partying. Not many people are into relationships as freshman. The majority of the girls are very focused on their studies as well as working out and maintaining a busy social life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team may not be the best at ASU, but our students really get involved with going to the games and being supportive of the team.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I was considered for admission to the Cronkite School when I turned in my application for admission to ASU. I learned after I had been accepted to ASU as a whole, that I made it into the Cronkite School. That made it fairly easy. There are admission requirements for the school found at cronkite.asu.edu. To get in, perform well in high school and on the SAT and ACT, and you shouldn't have to worry about getting in!

5 College Freshman

Majors: It is awesome being in my program. My program is the journalism program and I can't imagine a better place to learn the craft of journalism. Every journalism professor has professional experience of some sort. Students can get experience with the Blaze, the student radio station, Cronkite NewsWatch, ASU's Rocky Mountain Emmy-winning student-run newscast, when they are juniors and/or seniors, and with professional sources like the Arizona Republic, Fox10, ABC15, and many other profession sources. The workload peaks junior year when it is really stressful, but it is totally worth it when one graduates.

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!
