1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You'll see parties get busted by police and many students get MIC's but it's not a huge deal. I haven't heard of anyone getting in trouble for anything here. But it depends on which school your major falls under, some deans are more strict than others

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is very little greek life but if you want to get involved in it there are plenty of great opportunities. It is not necessary to meet friends at all.

3 College Freshman

Weather: When the weather here is nice, it is very nice. You can't beat the nice wether here anywhere. The price of this amazing weather is the unbearable heat that comes with summer. You can walk to your class in a heat that you can't imagine. The sweat of your body evaporates before you can notice it, as soon as you step in a building is when the moister spreads all over you wetting your cloths.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Common Heart Ship – There are computer commons at Arizona State University. It is there for the convince of the enrolled student. They are not updated with the best and latest software, and they usually take several minutes to connect to the schools network. The rule is "save save save", because with out a moments notice, the screen goes blank and you lose any work that is not saved. This happened to me once, but lucky it wasn't hours of work, only about a half hour. It would be really nice if the expensive software I need to compete assigned projects were installed on the schools computer or network somehow, but it is nice that there are computers that I can use.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: My School Rocks – ASU has been very good for me. I have had alot of support from the DRS, Professors, and even student groups. Even though it has been a while since attending, I am excited to return and get back in the swing of things.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: Parking Tight – There are quite a few parking issues at ASU. The powers that be are pretty good about catching people who park in the wrong area. I don't have that probem because I never park in a restricted area. I do have to walk farther than most, though.

3 College Student

Athletics: Athletics at ASU are pretty big, especially for Football. The school puts alot of money into the program and it shows. It helps that the weather is so nice here during football season.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Heat but Not Distracting – I live in Arizona so you already know that it is going to be extremely hot. The hot months are May and August. But not to worry every building is willing to freeze every part of your body. So bring a light jacket for your extended amounts of time in class. Especially if your wearing shorts.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Frat Boys – I feel like if your not in a fraternity/sorority you have a difficult time making friends. A lot of the guys are straight frat boys, but some of them are pretty down to earth too. A lot of the girls come off as snobby, but once you get to know them they are really nice.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Wide Variety – There is a wide variety of races on campus, which is nice, because it gives you a feel for all different kinds of cultures.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Labs Are Very Easy to Use – There are many computer labs around campus and are rarely ever full, because most students have their own computers. But if you are looking to use a computer lab there will definitely be computers at your disposal.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Amazing School Spirit – Arizona state is awesome at coordinating school colors and spirit at games. It always gets out what to wear so that we out shine all other schools! I love it!

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: You Will Get FAT!! I'm vegetarian and the options are horrible, unless I want pita jungle or a salad every time I am on campus. They have Taco Bell, Pizza, etc. It's not very health conscious, plus I am diabetic. It doesn't suit me.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Not Enough for Everyone – Arizona State University is very limited on the amount of computers they have to offer students. It's already an expensive school, especially for out of state students, so buying a computer isn't always an option at first, but I guess they don't think that through.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Foreign Students Galore! There is an incredible amount of diversity brought to the campus. It provides great opportunities to learn of others' culture.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing Is There – Housing is interesting. You can find housing, but you can't always count on having awesome neighbors unless you are wiling to pay a premium.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security=Campus Jobs – It seems like the staff the security teams with federal work-study students. Does not instill confidence.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Underage Drinking Is Illegal? I personally do not drink. But you would think by all of the freshmen talking about drinking that the legal drinking age was 18. Drugs are not visible, but surely exist. Most of the problems do not affect campus goings on.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Run of the Mill – The options are that of a college campus: Taco Bell Express, Subway, Jamba Juice, blah blah blah. The only place worth note is a venture between the food service company employed and the school of sustainability. There, locally sourced organic foods are served, all with special diets and religious considerations taken into account.

4 College Senior

Academics: Supply Chain Management Excellence – The program is a great way to gain exposure to all of the elements within supply chain management. More importantly, there is an emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving, not just memorization and regurgitation. The professors are world class, and the material is relevant to current events.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Latino? This Is the Place for You. If you are Latino or considered a "minority", or even an illegal alien you'll be provided with all the financial aid you want. If you are a working 20-something Caucasian, you won't be getting any financial aid from this school.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: Parts of campus are brand new and up to date, other parts are old and the age shows. Rec center leaves much to be desired.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Excellent Online Programs – ASU Online offers a diverse and rigorous selection of online programs. I am completing my BA in History and have had an excellent selection of courses to choose from, the courses have been rigorous, the faculty responsive, and the support staff (i.e. advisors, etc) have been very helpful. I would encourage others to check out ASU online if you need flexibility in scheduling for school!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There are posters around the dorms and apartments saying that ASU is a dry campus and if caught with alcohol on campus we will get fined, however more than once have I seen people sneak in alcohol into their rooms. When someone suspects there is someone drinking in the dorms and the police is called, if those people do not open the door, the police will not do anything, they just say they cannot do anything. So where is the discipline here?

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Gals – Here at ASU you find a variety of people, from the foreign students, to the overly tanned sorority girls, to the hipster boys, to the people who do not really care about looks. Everyone seems to get along really well and mostly everyone here enjoys the nightlife.

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!
