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.

5 College Senior

Diversity: We are composed of diverse students from in state, out of state, and international students. There is a variety of cultures and this can be seen in every class. I enjoy being part of a diverse community since everyone has different opinions but work together towards for a better and improved community.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places around Tempe campus that are affordable for students and walking distance. Even better, some of them have lunch specials and there is a variety of food choices. I have tasted different types of food such as Greek, Thai, Asian, and many others that are really good and it is part of our diversity in our college community. I definitely recommend trying different foods, enjoying their taste, and learning from them.

Local Atmosphere: Tempe has a small college feel on the edge of one of the biggest cities in the country. This is nice, because you can live on campus and have everything you might need within walking distance, while a quick drive (or trip via light rail) will get you into a big city.

Greek Life: Greeks Are Just Part of the Scene – Greek life is there for events with campus or other Greek members, but they throw parties without status and anyone is allowed to join. As well as they'll join other parties without making a scene, at ASU you would never know who is in a frat or sorority unless they tell you themselves, but its not a must know basis.

Facilities: Enough Libraries to Go Around – The facilities at Arizona State are great as they vary from new to old. It can give you the feeling from having history through the brick buildings as well as have the new modernized buildings for a more technological feeling. All buildings are renovated from the inside and every building has libraries with their own study areas that allow you to always find a place if needed.

Health & Safety: Entirely Safe – I have never felt threatened at ASU campus. There are always going to be petty thefts if you secure your belongings, but I have been on campus from early in the morning to late night errands and have never experienced nor witnessed any harm done to students.

Weather: How does one rate the weather on campus? You get what you get. Seeing as how ASU is in Arizona, well, most of us know already that it can get pretty hot here. Three digit weather is no fun.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: ASU may not have a personal gym for only students but the YMCA is right across the street and ASU students are free to use the facility. There is a library right on campus but for those that are looking for something that can't be found at the campus library the public library is only a five minute drive away. The light rail, public transportation, and the bus station is located also across from the campus so anyone looking to get off campus can easily do so by taking public transportation. Because of the downtown campus being located, well, downtown, students can enjoy a variety of entertainment establishments. Whether you're into comedy, looking for a bite to eat, or wanting to cheer on the local sports team, the downtown campus is located and surrounded by it all.

Transportation: Great Options – At ASU there are plenty of options to get where you need to go. There are inter-campus shuttles, buses, light rails, parking for your cars, and always walking/biking/skating/ etc. The cost for the inter-campus shuttles is free, while the bus and light rails are discounted for students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Loosey Goosey – The school I attend is not too strict when it comes to student individuality. There are always going to be drinkers and smokers and what not. The policies are fairly relaxed when it comes to this. If you are smart, nothing bad will happen.

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!
