Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Places, Not Crazy Variety – Mill avenue has lots of fun places, like Mellow Mushroom, la Bocca, and slices. Outside of that it tends to get more expensive and lose the student life but still plenty of options. chompies really good

Greek Life: Not in It but Seems Fun – Greek life isnt for me, but I have lots of friends in it who are very inclusive and let others partake in their activities. Fun for everyone involved

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive but Nice – I live in Barrett Honors college. Very expensive but really nice amenities. Eco friendly which is nice. Parking is too expensive and not convenient for students who live there. Have to park on third floor. Great student experience though.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Campus Opportunities – Arizona State University has been the best school I have ever attended. With the diversity, extra-curricular activities, networking and class selections, there are so many opportunities to grow and experience life as a college student – and then some. Go Sun Devils!

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Personal Safety – The campus is well equipped with emergency call stations, and there are campus police that station around campus during the day and at night. Campus is also pretty well lit, so you are almost always in a lit area out in the open to feel more safe. If there are any homeless people walking about at night, they are escorted off campus by campus police for safety reasons.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors are always very willing to help students, and to assist in helping study habits for their individual class. Many professors also include multiple Teaching Assistants for the students to visit for extra practice problems before exams, receiving a previous student's perspective on the material.

Majors: Lots of Great Experience! For my undergrad, I spent four semesters in internships, all of which were unpaid. Although I was seriously broke, the extensive experience more than made up for it. When I entered my field immediately after graduation, many of my coworkers were shocked to learn that I had just graduated because I behaved professionally, knew what I was doing, and "acted like I had it all together."

Majors: Not Terribly Difficult – Getting into my program at ASU was relatively easy. The admissions process was fairly standard: resume or curricula vitae, letters of recommendation, statement of purpose. The admissions department was also helpful; they answered my numerous questions and helped me build a custom plan of study.

Majors: A Great Education for an Education Major – I am very happy with the education I received at ASU. My professors were top-notch, especially Dr. Blasingame. I got a job immediately out of the chute, and I have job opportunities falling into my lap (even in this tough economy!) because of my degree and experience at ASU.

Majors: ASU offers an extensive variety of majors, most of which end with internships and job opportunities. For example, I spent my last four semesters in internships and got tons of hands-on experience in my chosen field.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of places to eat. A lot of restaurants and cafe near campus accept maroon and gold dollars meaning you can swipe your student card that has money loaded on it and you can pay for your meal. There is a ton of hole in the wall amazing restaurants on Mill Ave. You have to check out Devil's Den!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life on campus is very active. There is always something to do around campus! The Memorial Union is very popular and a lot of people hang out and study there.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It is SO hot here! You can be walking 5 minutes and be automatically sweating. It's nice though because you can always relax by the pool and you can relax in some shorts!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very involved and you particapate in many charity events. It's not dominating but plays an active role at ASU. It's a great way to meet new people!

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Unlimited Food – Nice dinning halls especially at Barret Honor's College.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Quite Diverse – ASU has a big student body. So there are many students with different ethic background. You just have to find it. Although some ethics population will be larger than others. It is still quite diverse.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Free Shuttle Bus! There are free shuttle bus that runs around campus frequently. Like 5-10 minutes per bus. And there are also free shuttle bus that runs back and forth to different campuses. Especially Tempe to Downtown Phoenix and vise versa. So it is quite convenient.

3 College Senior

Majors: No Internship – I haven't taken part in any internship on campus yet but I don't plan too because of my kid and work. I wish I could do an internship with the school so I could learn more from one of my Professors.

3 College Senior

Majors: So Far So Good – I've just been in my program for only a year but what i've experienced has been good so far. I can't wait to take more classes in the Business and communication field

3 College Senior

Majors: It was fairly easy to get into the Interdisciplinary program. It was just filling out the application and then getting accepted. the counselors in the program were very helpful

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Barely Aware – So far I haven't seen or heard of any drugs being used on campus which is good and makes me believe my school is drug free.

3 College Senior

Majors: Interdisplinary Studies – This program is great it allows you to study two different concentrations. If only the business classes could be used towards an accounting degree.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: On Campus Food, Yum – The restaurants are good in my opinion. You have places like Taco Bell, Chick-fil-a, Burger King, Papa Johns, etc. There are other food types to like sushi, vegetarian dishes, and more. That pretty much sold it to me; being able to buy good food without having to get a meal plan.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The Many Choices – Off campus dining is great in Tempe. There are many options from grills, bars, vegetarian, and foreign foods. My favorites are Buffalo Wild wings and Devil Advocate. Buffalo Wild Wings has great tuesday and thursday deals like 50 cent wings. Many of the different dining options are pretty close by to the campus so its pretty convenient for walking. Many of the restaurants give a 10% student discount which I find convenient. All around I like the off campus dining options here.

4 College Junior

Academics: Great Programs – Arizona State has a big variety of options when it comes to Academics. ASU is one of the top 100 school for academics and its speaks for it's self. I came to Arizona State because of the film program. The program is amazing with a variety of classes that advance your knowledge of film and has already helped me improve in my many areas that I want to pursue like screenwriting. I also know that Arizona State has an excellent business program and all I hear is great things about the W.P. Carey School of Business. The great communication from the professors and the and class options is a big reason why I chose 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!
