5 College Freshman

Academics: The tutoring centers are available at more than just one location and also at different hours throughout the day/night.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are various amounts of helpful resources available to guide you through any major you may be dealing with. from tutoring to internships, ASU has all kinds of resources to help you succeed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everybody living on campus are going through the same things pretty much that youre going through so its not hard to meet new people and make new friends. The dorm life is fun and exciting depending on what you make of it. There are study rooms on almost every floor so its easy and convenient for you to get a group of friends together to study and have fun at the same time.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There isn't much to do out in Arizona. The house parties aren't really fun or exciting. And the clubs aren't fun unless your 21+. Also, the clubs can get boring really quick.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love the weather in Phoenix/Tempe. It is only super hot during the summer but the rest of the year the weather is wonderful. It allows for outdoor activities year round and because it is sunny most of the time, this presents a more cheerful atmosphere. You don't usually have to worry about the cold. My recommendation is to take plenty of water with you whereever you go because you will need it.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Kids drink and kids smoke weed. It is not too bad, but it is still frequent on and around campus.

3 College Junior

Weather: Always great sunny weather. If you are not at ASU during summer and are from out of state and go back home. It is perfect. If you stay for summer get ready for the worst time of the year.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I mean I hear a lot of students getting scholarships and such. I am an out of state student and didn't receive a dime, but federal loans through FAFSA. Kind of disappointed.

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking is terrible at ASU. You can not park anywhere even if you have to do something really quick.. You have to always catch a ride there and back to wherever you go because you can't drive. I say this only because permit costs or ridiculously expensive on Tempe. Parking enforcement is really strict, because if you don't have a pass and park there its almost up to $100 ticket first time. You can also get $20 dollar tickets if you don't have your permit displayed properly. Overall ASU needs to figure it out with the parking situation.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are involved in their studies--at least in my classes. While walking around campus, people seem nice and friendly. Anytime you need help you can stop someone and ask, and hopefully they will know the answer.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Securities are visible and you can count on them everytime

5 College Junior

Computers: There is definitely accessibility to computer labs and computers. You can print and there is reliable network on campus.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene at ASU is fairly big, it depends on who your friends are though. You can choose not to be in the scene but you may not have as many friends.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm in the W.P Carey School of Business. The work load and classes are expected because it's a business school. However, I think the extra 1,000 dollar fee for being in the business school is absolutely ridiculous. However, the counselors are very helpful and help you find scholarships and internships that will help you in the future.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are people of many different races and religions at ASU. However, the different races tend to stick together.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is nice but it's extremely expensive. It's nice because the dorms are very close to classes but I wish there were more food options that would work with meal plans.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's often really sunny, and most of the time it's going to be either warm, or very hot. It gets tiring to walk to classes in the heat, but there's little chance of having to walk around during heavy rains, which is good. Overall, the heat can make it a little exhausting, but it's super nice in general.

3 College Senior

Transportation: It really depends what kind of transportation you are taking. Driving sucks, avoid it if at all possible! The parking lots are over priced and if your first class is at 12pm, good luck finding a spot that isn't 2 miles away from campus. Although there are places around Mill that are either free or will give you an hourly ticket, but leave at around 9pm, meaning you just have to wait them out, which isn't a problem if you have a late evening class.

The Phoenix bus system is old, and they don't have the most reliable schedule at times. I prefer the Tempe Orbit system, which is smaller, but free and easy to use. Also the Metro Light Rail is a great way to get from the down town campus to central campus.

Biking is a really convenient option if you live close to campus. Tempe is a pretty bike friendly city with plenty of bike lock ups and paths.

For security, ASU does offer a pick up student for those that live close to campus and had a late night at the library, sorority function, ect.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Job employment at ASU has lots to do with social interaction. Keeping connected with key people allows someone to socially connect to opportunities from a wider audience view . Keeping your own private job reference base is a good play on your network friendliness.

4 College Freshman

Majors: My career strengths are creation, whether in collaboration with another, or independent self paced workflows. There is a means of structure that many play on the fields with and most attempt to imitate to better their means. I want to become a director, and producer. Possibly after many, many jobs relevant to the major companies in Hollywood, California.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm through to the stage in my adult life where I want to receive higher education, and in the timeframe I am allowed for career building I'd like to intern somewhere relevant to the field I am currently earning a degree in. Things relevant to production, and media; as well as future security development.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The program had interesting discussions and review for the content, they followed study topics pretty closely. The program was full paced and adequate for even a hungry intellect. You can study the various topics.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I think the campus can be pretty strict. You can drink a lot at the apartments and not get caught. I think the dorms are a lot more strict though. Also, in Arizona, the punishment for underage drinking is an MIC (MInor In Consumption), which goes on your criminal record. On the East Coast, when cops break up a party they just make you pour out everything and tell everyone to go home. Not in Arizona. An MIC goes on your record and stays with you for life. Just for underage drinking. Ridiculous.

Computers: The computers are okay, can be pretty slow, especially if you're trying to print things in a rush.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is usually hot 8 months of the year, and the other 4 months are a lot cooler.

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!
