Drug Safety: The drug scene at Arizona State University is like it is at any school. There are always people who will do drugs, but the campus itself is very safe and you see very little drugs. It just depends on who you hang out with off campus. It is a party school, but people drink more than they do drugs.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got decent scholarships but I have gotten more at previous schools..

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life builds a sort of bond between a wide group of people that would otherwise most likely never have met. They host many parties and because of such, are popular to join with.

Campus Dining: The food choices in downtown Phoenix are limited, as the cafeteria does not serve a wide variety of entrees. After the dining hall closes, you can go to Devil's Greens, but they are limited to burritos and salads. Otherwise, you have to walk far to go to a restaurant, which is most likely closed. On the Tempe campus it is much easier, and much more variety.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you put yourself out there, there are plenty of things to do. The best way to go is to go to a house party, which is free, and a great way to socialize and meet other people from other campuses and such. There are also several under-18 clubs that you can also go to, with some great DJ's and plenty of fun. Transportation has become a lot easier with the use of the lightrail system, but the best way is just to have a designated driver.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you are 21+ their are many places to go, specially on Mill Ave which is around the corner of ASU. The lightrail is a block away.

2 College Freshman

Majors: I am in neutral standing with my program. I was not able to take my recommended classes this semester due to my job. As of now I'm taking four session B classes. This past month I've studying every day just because the classes are shorter.

2 College Freshman

Majors: My biggest diffuctly was being able to get classes around my schedule, I work mornings in a full time job. Their's no abnormal process for my program, very easy, I had actually changed majors, and for it to get approved and change did not take long.

2 College Freshman

Majors: As of right now I rate it a C, is due to the reason that for my first semester as a freshmen I was not able to take the courses that I was suppose to take due to my full time job and my classes were scheduled in the morning. My goal is after getting my bachelors I want to get back into school to get my masters. My concern is how is the compatition in my field.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Architecture is tough but is worth the experience in the field. It takes a lot of effort, passion, an drive to continue on with some sleepless nights. It is totally worth the work though.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are many different groups on campus. I have been exposed to beyond the types of people that I have ever been. It is nice because there are the wonderful people that want to learn more about you. There are however some bias based on what or who you are.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There is a great variety of food on campus. The prices are about average to what you would expect, but you can get just about anything!

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: So far I haven't seen any drug use or alcohol use but I'm sure alcohol is more popular.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is very convenient to live on campus since it's close to all the classes. The dorms are very clean, although small, but very cozy.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: ASU has a lot of school pride and keep up with so many of the colleges traditions. There is always something to do on campus to help out the community or get people excited about an upcoming game.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food on campus is good and there are many options, I just wish that there were more healthy options considering how long the lines are at the few healthy choices there are.

Facilities: Arizona State campus is huge and cannot be compared to anywhere else. We have a huge student union (the MU) where you can find food, activities such as bowling and pool, there are also many places to study and just relax. We also have a greta library and gym, Almost everyone is friendy and is there for the same reason.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I gave it a C because you either have to live far away from campus where there is no trouble with the police and fire fighters showing. Or you can live near campus where the cops are around all the time. Which is guess is a good think, but the violence is not.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: They tell us we should not drink or do drugs, but only some some people inforce it

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid wasn't as difficult as I assumed it would be, but maybe it might have been the fact that I was receiving help from my high school teachers. Since you are going up to college, one starts to receive more reresponsability, that we need to take care of at our own time. If you need help filling out your financial aid one has to receive some help at ASU because they will not help you if you don't ask for help. Asking questions is something we come to learn more in college, withought questions we might end up being confused and lost when it comes to financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: ASU is filled with a diversity of different races, even though it might seem that the majority of students might be white, you also see other types of race, for example Hispanic. I am Hispanic and I don't feel out of place when I attend my classes at ASU. One of the many challenges having to be at ASU is since it it one of the biggest college campus, you have to try even harder to compete with the rest of the other students about your grades. There are many bright students at ASU that it can be hard being the best in a class.I live going to ASU because not only was I able to get financial aid, I also received scholarships. I assumed I would have been the only one receiving these benefits, and feeling less of a person because my family wasn't able to afford it. But on the contrary there are many student who are getting the same help as I am. I love ASU and recommend for students to attend this great schopl.

College Junior

Campus Dining: I do not live on campus, so I do not know how the food is.

3 College Senior

Weather: There is a lot of sun during the summer months and it can get very hot during the day. This makes most social gatherings take place indoors or at night, which isn't always a bad thing. Walking to class in the middle of the day can be difficult though.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: I don't eat at any of the dining halls, but the restaurants found on campus are clean and offer good food. The only thing that is kind of bad is how crowded it can get, but I don't know if there is much you can do with crowd control during lunch time.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: For 75% of the year, you are in relatively bearable sun. 20% is spent roasting in the blistering sun of the summer, so walking around in 115 degree weather is not fun. Then the last 5% is the joke of a winter we get which lasts about a month and a half. If you love the sun, then this is the place for you, if not, then... you wont be a happy camper here.

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!
