4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Girls Are Sizzling Like the Weather – The girls are fit and sun-kissed. Most of the time you will see them wearing booty shorts since the weather is so dang hot out here. Not sure how to rate the guys, so I'll leave that one alone. Everyone seems to be from locales other than Arizona.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Party School – ASU is well-known for its reputation as a party school. The drug scene isn't big that I know of. I'm sure the Tempe campus is a lot different than the Polytech campus since there are 3-4 times the amount of students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Modern and Green Certified – ASU's Poly campus is very clean, serene, and modern. The architecture is LEED certified. The student center is a great hangout spot.

4 College Senior

Academics: Biology Majors Really Stick Together – Going through all the Bio classes you really get to know the students in your program which helps you when you are all taking similar classes. The teachers are very helpful for the most part and are genuinely excited about what they are teaching.

4 College Junior

Academics: A Great Help – I came to Arizona State University because it had the graphic information technology program. The campus is amazing, it has a wide variety of great things to do with plenty of resources to get help from. Especially the faculty from teachers who are willing to go the extra mile with you to make sure you are on the right path. To campus faculty who help you on a day to day basis with anything and anywhere you need to go.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Good Food – There are plenty of great places to eat on campus. There are a wide variety of restaurants that have a nice college vibe to make everyone feel at home. Everything is not expensive, it is a reasonable price for college students.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Easy as a Breeze – Basically, ASU wants to include everybody. It was easy for me to get into my program as you only need to be qualified for a certain GPA at first year and then the milestone comes. In my Landscape Architecture program, it was easy since there was no competition. GPA determined who gets in.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My Program Is Awesome! I am currently in Landscape Architecture! I love everything about it. We are closely knit students that has to interact with each other in order to finish project. Landscape Architecture is closely tied with Architecture in the first two years. In the third year, the programs will be separated but is going to be combined again at senior year together with all other design majors. The Landscape Architecture program at ASU deals much about design and concepts! If you like a design based curriculum, rather than a more engineering Architecture, then you came to the right place.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love It! So far so good! I love everything about ASU! I am a proud Sundevil. People are nice and not hard to get a long with. Not all people here are partiers. But if you are, you're gonna have a blast!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A Lot of Pretty Women, but More Less Attractive Men – Yes, there are a lot of pretty women in ASU. No matter where you go, you'll see them. As for guys, ASU needs to accept more good looking guys.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Fans Are Great but the Players Need to Notch It up! It is astounding to see Sun Devils supporting every major sporting event at ASU. The thing is, the athletes need to step it up for their supporters!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The Obama scholarship is one of the best. It covers housing, books, and tclasses. However, there are some requirements for this scholarship. Your parents have to have a certain level of income, and if given the scholarship, the students has to maintain a certain gpa and report to a mentor that is assigned.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Campus Shuddles
This kind of transportation is the best option because it travels to all the different ASU campuses. Also, they run every half hour and there is no cost.

3 College Junior

Academics: Packed to the Gills – Most classes are full, or reserved for cohorts. Have to register for classes early to get what you need. Business school is top-notch though, and offers lots of help.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Mill Ave. Mill avenue has lots of clubs/bars to go to, and it is right next to the campus. Scottsdale is about a 10 minute drive away where there is lots of 21+ clubs.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments around ASU are very cheap, ranging from 250-500 for a room/studio. Lots of complexes all over Northern Tempe near campus.

3 College Junior

Weather: Regularly stays above 100 degrees during the summer, but it's dry heat, meaning you wont constantly have a layer of sweat on you. Almost always clear, sunny skies for plenty of outdoor activities.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Workload and Homework – Information in classes can be a lot to keep track of. All you have to is find a way to stay organized yourself. If you are not understanding material in class set up a appointment with your professor. They are usually pretty understanding and helpful if you have the time. Try your best and you shall succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather at ASU is gorgeous except for the few times when it rains. It doesn't often, but when it does rain it pours. Pack rain boots.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Commuting to School. Driving from a semi-local distance can be difficult with traffic. As long as you plan ahead before your classes are scheduled you should be just fine. The parking is very tight and I recommend to not park in the corners or you risk your car being hit. Commuting saves more money but not time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If You're in the Arts Prepare for the Subpar – What college your major falls under determines the dorms you live in, and some of the dorms are not especially nice. Specifically for the students in the college of design and the arts. They are the only dorms on campus that have communal bathrooms which at first can be treated as a rite of passage, but after a while can become a hindrance. Plus on campus housing is much more expensive than living off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is present at ASU; however, there is no pressure to join. They hardly the run the social scene and are usually only noticed because of their matching bags, shirts, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Plenty of Events – There are always local events like art walks and First Fridays to enjoy.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Very Good Experience for Some – Most peoples freshman year dorm experiences are good. Problem is it cost an arm and a leg for no reason but the fact that the university wants money.

Honors students are required to commit to two years of dorm life and it costs more than the rest of the students. So it's kinda ridiculous.

Most people try to just find apartments as soon as they can.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Mostly Good – The RA's in your hall really don't care whether you break the rules or not at all.

The police on the other hand can be arrest-happy, but honestly ASU deserves it most of the time. I think they do the best they can.

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!
