4 College Freshman

Facilities: The ASU Polytechnic campus has excellent facilities, dining and architechture. The helpful staff are always available and one's fellow students are always there to lend a helping hand! Love the campus and everyone on it!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There is always something to do at ASU. For starters, there are more than 500 clubs on campus, and students are allowed to start a club that ASU might not have. Speakers and scientists come every day to ASU to talk about a recent discovery or work in progress that is being done in real life, which gives an insight as to what is going on in the modern world. Concerts, comedy shows, plays and other events are advertised well in advance, and many of these performances are held on campus. The best turnouts recently have been for a standup comedy show, B.o.B. concert and Mac Miller concert. I cannot go on to describe all the amazing events and programs that have been held within this last semester at ASU without writing a short story. This is why I believe that ASU is definitely one of the most unique colleges we have in the United States and that it gives the largest variety of activities and involvement opportunities to its students.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Since ASU has become a "dry" campus, the police have been buckling it down on underage drinking and being under the influence of illegal substances. Any parties held within walking distance from campus have been busted within an hour. As for drinking in the door, "quiet hours" have been put in place starting at 9:00pm to make it easier for Community Assistants to search dorm rooms and find alcohol. This is not the sort of place you would want to hold a large and loud party at. And any party that's advertised on Facebook or Twitter is almost guarunteed to be busted by the police.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are usually open parking spots on campus. However, that is only because on-campus parking must be payed for in advance. The price of this increases with convenience, the most expensive being the closest to campus. If you have money to spend, then there is no problem at all. Because many college students are typically short on money, I would say the parking situation is only fair--not great.

4 College Junior

Weather: If you take summer classes, and at the the end of the Spring semester, it is really hot, and you will need water. The rest of the year, the weather is great. Occasional rain, but nothing serious, and it never snows.

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking is terrible. People complain "Freshmen don't get good parking" or "All students don't get good parking", but nobody gets good parking. There are garages that are closeish to class, but they are expensive and if you get there at the wrong time you will park on the fourth floor or the roof. There is a cheaper garage that is very far away, but your car will be broken into there at least once a year, and possibly stolen. There are parking lots, but they're not much cheaper, also fill up, and the sun will destroy your car.

I'm looking into other ways to get to class for next year, including biking and the light rail. There are a lot of bike racks (which also sometimes fill up!) and the light rail stops on campus.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into Ira A. Fulton and Barrett is slightly harder than the rest of ASU, but any good student can get in those two. Barrett had a separate application which required letters of recommendation and an essay or two, but it was less than for a private college such as Stanford.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Arizona State, in general, have shown to be very disappointing.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Plenty of computer labs/libraries at ASU. This semester there was free printing which was so nice. And the speed is average, depending on where you are. Printing is easy, but there are usually people there to help you if needed. However it's still nice to have your own computer and printer because when it's busy at the library and you have to print something "real quick" before your next class it can sometimes be a hassle.
I did give an A because the printing was free and at the computer lab I go to, there are rarely other people and I can quick get in and get out. However this rating does fluctuate with the computer lab you are in.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: In my opinion, the Tempe campus has a lot of stuck-up jocks and preps. I never really got to know anyone there; no one was very friendly. I will say this though: LOTS of hot guys for people watching! At the Polytechnic campus though, it's much smaller and has a more community feeling. There are all kinds of cool people on the Polytech campus, and you can really get to know them because there aren't so many distractions from the huge feeling of the campus around you. The guys here are pretty cute too, if you're into the nerdy type -- most of the people on this campus are the science majors.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a pretty decent variety of food around the main campus, and it's all relatively convenient. It's always easy to find a pizza place to eat at after a hard-core studying session, which is a plus.

3 College Junior

Computers: It's alright, but when you really need a computer, you have to search for one. Also, if your bring your own laptop, the network gets overloaded so you have to try to get on the less used one. And there are NO OUTLETS for your laptop ANYWHERE! You have to strategically scope out where there is an outlet and get it as soon as someone walks away from it.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is expensive and even the cheapest you still have a long walk from your classroom. If your into exercising then it would be find, but the prices I'am not a fan of. I would reccomend getting a bike or skateboard to get around easier after you do find a parking space. Make sure to leave plenty of time before your class starts.

3 College Junior

Majors: As for myself being a transfer student it is a hassle going through the paper work and figuring out how I will be able to pay. The main criteria for admission was the GPA and the ACT or SAT scores. The GPA I have, but the ACT I have not tooken it. I thought being a transfer student from the same state it should be an easier proccess. I think it would help that the schools would work together to help students transffering. Advisors just tell you this is what you have to do, and just some bit of explaining, but one is pretty much on thier own. It would feel more appreciative that one is going to an university that would be more helpful through the process and make a new student feel welcomed.

College Junior

Majors: I have not been a part of any internships, but I plan on having an internship in the future to prepare me for my major. My major at the moment is Supply Chain management and hope to further my career with this program. The only jobs I have had growing up is working with my father in his business and helping my father run his restaurant. With the future internships I' am able to recieve I know it will help me be successful.

1 College Student

Health & Safety: The counseling services is terrible! I don't feel the satisfaction from it and they make you pay a large fee for it! If you have your own insurance better find services through them.

1 College Student

Facilities: Nice campus, but lack of activities besides sports.

3 College Student

Facilities: We have 250+ majors and plenty of organizations and clubs to join.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Health Sciences (pre -professional) - This is a great major for anyone interested in med school. You will have two lab sciences almost every semester. It will be challenging, but it's doable. There are also lots of staff members there to help you get internships and research.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Attending online classes, campus strictness does not apply

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are very helpful and want you to do well. Most grade fairly. Creativity, innovation, and real world application is always encouraged. Class sizes are usually small (downtown campus).

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of good places to eat near ASU's Downtown Campus. Be prepared to explore!

Recent Alumnus

Weather: I am taking online courses, so the weather is negligible to me

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are usually always fun events to attend (free food included). There are also plenty of parties if that's what you're into, but they all happen on the tempe campus, so you'll have to take the light rail or school shuttle if you live on another campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is okay, but you will gt tired of having the same food all the time.

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!
