Campus Dining: There's tons of options for dining at the campus but it gets old really quickly. The food is really good most of the time though, so it's not that big of a deal. On the plus side there's a place to get a bite to eat pretty much everywhere on campus so it's convenient for students who have a break but not enough time to walk to a centralized location for meals like other schools.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe I still do not have a favorite experience at Arizona State. I believe something unique at ASU though, is that you see someone today and know you probably will never see that person again ever in your life. I know they are very student spirit oriented and they are so anti-wildcats. I see the rivalry kind of like a game, but many take it as a life and death matter which I see more as a childish idea. If I could do it all again, I will first go to a college only because of the price. I honestly think ASU offers amazing teachers and staff, I guess they are the best part so far.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I think it was easier than what I saw at the moment. I felt lost because I am the first of my family to ever go to college. I was lacking tons of information. However what got me started was sending my ACT scores to the university. They called me once they got the results and told me I had a high enough number to be qualified. When they called me it was like the middle of June, and they told me to start my application and call them again in August when I went back to school. That is what I did. Little by little they started asking me for papers such as my certificate or other information. To be admitted into ASU as a freshman, you have to have one of the following: Must be in top 25% of class, or have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, have atleast a 22 in ACT or have atleast 1040 in SAT scores. If you meet one of these you will be all set with the requirements. Then of course, they require you to have the 4 years of English, 4 years of Math, 3 years of a Lab Science, 2 years of a Social Science, 2 years of a Foreign Language and 1 year of Fine Arts. If you got all that, you are ready to enter and be admitted into Arizona State University.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, but I certainly am planing on having one. I will go into a law office because that is my future job. I am only concerned with the fact of the high prices of college and how I will be using up time at an internship, I will learn but I will not be getting paid for my time.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Through criminal justice I want to become a lawyer and later on in life, a judge. I know it is a long road but I will persevere through it all. I love my major and I am sure I made no mistakes. The only one fact that I know regret is not going first into a college and later on to ASU. I believe it is too expensive and on top of it all, the financial area does not really help you all that much. ASU wants to charge for every little thing, at-least that is how it seems to me. I like the university and the major, but the cost is what I regret and always will.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I believe that the cost is too high. Yes you can find meter parking's close to campus, but when it comes to being on the run to get to class, you have to look for quarters, nickels and dimes and on top of it all, look for a parking spot that is not too far away from your class. ASU is a huge campus. Especially in Tempe. I know over in the West campus, the parking meter spots are too hot and there is no cover up and no protection, no roof under a temperature that reads 100+ Fahrenheit degrees.

Health & Safety: Crime has been known to happen on and around campus. Keep posted with ASU alert technology.

Academics: The film and media program at ASU is one of the best in the country, in my opinion. They may not have access to the best equipment due to limited funds but they certainly know how to find solutions to problems like this and how to get it at a low cost. Every professor seems to be very knowledgeable and quite insightful.

3 College Junior

Academics: Grades are generally available two weeks after assignments have been posted. This can be frustrating at the beginning of each term as I use this to gauge the grading average and style of the professor. For a large campus I would say things seem well-organized.

Campus Dining: I love the food here! It might be because I have simple "taste" or that I'm okay with anything, but I really think the dinning hall deserves an A. Better than high school food of course. And as for the eating places around Downtown, I can't say since I have been out to find out lately, but from what I've heard, there are a ton a really nice places.
Meal plans, depending on which one you have, is very convenient. Just time it right and weigh on whether it's crucial to eat in the dinning hall when you've already used up most of your meals for the week and you'll survive.

Academics: I came to Arizona State University because it was the closest school to my area and it offered a great veterinarian degree. The campus is large enough to accommodation all the different schools as well as on campus housing. All of the teachers and staff are very helpful and wiling to provided as much possible to be successful.

Scholarships: I recieved a decent amount right after being accepted, and a few months later a few more doors opened and I was able to recieve more financial aid (helps cut down loans). It's pretty easy to go through terms while gaining more aid here and there. I've heard of some people having disbursement problems however.

Campus Housing: I would give a higher grade for most of the dorms, but there are some locations that I've heard nothing but bad things about or are fairly old. Campus Housing is very close to classes, eating, shopping, ect: and ASU is a pretty social place.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Depending on classes/program if you can keep from procrastining, the workload isn't that bad. Some of the professors are really good and some are not engaging/just talk. There are a ton of clubs and organizations, so joining more than 1-3 is very easy and can help with searching for experience, social, and internships. Faculty is good, all willing and wanting to aid you in any help (any) you may need.

3 College Senior

Academics: It definitely depends on your major. There are some great professors and some not so great professors. Some do not know how to teach but are only there so they can do research. It is best to use ratemyprofessor.com before signing up.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots around the ASU campus to eat. Within walking distance too!

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It feels like a safe campus. The police are fairly crazy about bikes though. They give out a lot of bike tickets.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: As long as you stay on top of things that haven't been completed it isn't too bad. 4 years ago there was a lot more financial aid being offered, but it has significantly declined. The process isn't too grueling, but when things get forgotten about or paperwork gets lost, it can be a challenge.

3 College Senior

Majors: As a Linguistics major I am very satisfied with my choice of study. It is incredible rewarding to me and that is why I was exploratory when I began and decided this was what I wanted to study. My only concern is that when I graduate, my options will be limited if I decide to follow through and attempt to use my degree. I've noticed most of my fellow linguistics students have aspirations to teach ESL or teach English in a foreign country.

4 College Senior

Majors: Being a Linguistics major at ASU is great. Overall I am satisfied with my decision. There are a couple difficulties however. The first of which is that there are not a lot of Linguistics electives. Because Linguistics is a concentration within English, our options are very limited to mostly literature classes until reaching upper division courses. The other drawback is that 6 semesters of a foreign language are required. Most students who want to go into Linguistics have some interest in studying a second language, but if you don't want to go far with a specific language I would recommend not declaring Linguistics at ASU.

5 College Senior

Majors: The process of getting into Linguistics is easy. It should be possible for anyone who has been accepted to the University to get in as long as your current GPA meets the college's requirements. I just went to an English advisor and told them I wanted to declare my major as Linguistics. They processed the request and I had no hoops to jump through.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There's lots of reading. Very hard to manage if you have a job like me.

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!
