3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life used to be pretty huge on ASU campuses, but because the Greeks constantly violated rules they have all been kicked off campus (there is no housing available for them there), which leads me to believe that Greek life might be dying down a bit.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The worst thing about ASU's meal plans is that for non-barrett students they only offer one meal plan that ensures you will be able to eat three solid meals a day, seven times a week.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is very easy, especially because they offer you different resident housing options based upon your area of study, meaning that you will be grouped with like minded students, which can increase competition and collaboration, and in turn increase the overall quality of work produced by the students.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The people are super nice and good looking. They dress appropriately for the most part. The social life does not fall short in many ways and people seem open to relationships quickly.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys although they make look psychically appealing could be potential date rapists or racists or homophobes, misandrists etc. At a campus like ASU which does have a problem with keeping control of it's Greek life (i.e. drinking, drugs) and earlier this year had a big scandal with several white students posting racists pictures and having racist celebrations for Black Pride Month it's crucial to be safe and not judge people off of ascetics.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining is a nearly 50/50 split of chains and then good, local businesses, which provides lots of options for Students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: People get very into the football games, especially the ones played against UofA.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: From what I've heard ASU is way too lax about enforcing no underage drinking and no alcohol permitted in dorm rooms. However, until I actually attend in the fall, I won't know for sure.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: It's absolutely wonderful that ASU can allow you to customize your own double major after attending at least one semester of school with only one major.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life is very active; sometimes bordering on distracting from the education.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: From what I've seen on the online groups there is a fair amount of diversity.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly, just make sure you check deadlines for things and submit all the proper forms and ASU will do the rest!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: In all of the areas of where I live, nothing has been more advanced in spreading culture and fun than the area around my school. At any moment there could be an expo, art walk, or a big event. It is a place full of activity and it is a great way to have some fun in-between school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have immensely enjoyed my time at this school, and that is mainly due to the teachers and the atmosphere. The school itself can be positively gorgeous, and many of the other students are very friendly and interesting. Every teacher I have had has been wonderful; they truly example what sets a university professor and a high school teacher apart, and they make me love every subject I am learning.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I rate that it is great not because every guy and girl attending the school is great, but because of the variety. You can literarily find an infinite amount of unique people at the school, and variety and individuality is what every school should try to achieve.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Lots of sexual harassment and gun cases at our school

And nobody takes it seriously.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: For the most part students look and act pretty much in the same ways.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I get the feeling that ASU is accepting of diversity, but there aren't really any events to celebrate it or even talk about it or broadcast it. It feels accepting, but at the same time they stay quiet about it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: It's close to phoenix, but the city is about 20 minutes away. The campus is very isolated.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live off-campus, but I reside in a house about 10 minutes away from campus. I don't really know about apartments or house rentals close to campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus and nothing has ever happened to myself or anyone I knew. I don't think there is much awareness for campus crimes and sexual assaults.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: This was a fairly easy program to complete and not much was expected of you. There were many internship opportunities, but no one told you about them so they were very difficult to find unless you went looking for them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There were some awesome professors and also some that should not have even been there. The registration process was simple, but if there was a problem, it was a pain to get it fixed.

2 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I didn't really think it was that good. No one tells you resources like internships or research labs and I had no clue what was expected of me for continuing on with higher education. Many of the classes did not add to my knowledge at all and I actually deemed them completely unnecessary for my degree.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Getting into this program is the same application for being accepted into ASU.

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!
