5 College Sophomore

Computers: All up-To-Date Mac or PC. They have ADOBE CS6, All 2012 programs. Fairly shocked at the quality.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have only just began my degree in Anthropology. I love physical anthropology and see it repeated in some of my courses. I hope to do some research in Africa and work work in a zoo with monkeys.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Fun College! There are four ASU campuses, and all of them are filled to the brim with things to do. You will never be bored, and there are hundreds of clubs for almost any interest you can think of. There are fitness centers to stay healthy, huge libraries for research, and exciting traditions.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Super Easy Admission – When I applied for my program at ASU, it was the easiest process ever! All I did was fill out my basic information about myself and my high school grades and I was offered admission within a few days, if I remember correctly.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Awesome Criminology Program – The Criminology program here is amazing. The classes are intriguing, and I am never bored. The workload is completely doable, as long as you use your time wisely. ASU has lots of connections with all sorts of agencies that are always recruiting people for internships and even jobs. Very nice program.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Be Careful Where You Look – Make sure you look slightly further from campus like in Scottsdale, Chandler or Gilbert. The downtown Tempe area is not safe and I had a horrible experience there. It was cheap and close but not worth it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Pros and Cons – It is great that it does not rain often but the heat is unbearable.

2 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Culturally Inept – I am from the East Coast and in comparison there is lack of cultural and limited amount of things to do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Safety First – I took several night classes and I always felt comfortable walking to my car.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are people from all walks of life who attend ASU; however, the majority ethnicity is still Caucasian.

3 College Junior

Computers: Pay Per Print; but Convenient – Gone are the days of having to scrounge for change in order to copy/scan/print. Now the charges just get added to your student account. Prices are reasonable too. Computers are overall reliable and seem to be average in speed. There are a number of different locales in which a student can find computers; the libraries and computer commons, for example.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: 1 Good Library, 1 Bad – The computer labs at Noble Science and Engineering Library get overcrowded and there are 4 computers I know that are extremely slow. At Hayden Library there is always a spot and there is a lot of room for those who bring there laptops.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Nice Variation – There are a good variety of restaurants and are all close to the campus so its very convenient

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Not Much to Talk About – The only drug scene I see on campus is public smoking. There may be other things going on I don't know about. But, other than that drugs isn't a huge problem here.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: If You Don't Look for It You Are Fine – ASU isn't bad at drugs. If you don't look for trouble you won't find it.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Its Easy If You Look for It – Its easy to get financial aid if you go out and look for it.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse Ungrad Population – ASU has students from all over the US and world. You will find a very diverse population at this school!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived off campus for the last two years, and have had no problem finding a new place each time I moved.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Rules on Campus – The ASU campuses have there rules just like any other. Don't do anything outrageous and you will be fine!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Light Rail Are the Best Potion – We have some many transportation in our campus, such as buses, orbit and light rail. Let's talk about the buses first, it's a really good transportation which is cheap, but we have to wait for a long time. Secondly, I want to talk about the orbit. It's free, but it takes to long to go to the places we want. Thirdly, I want to talk about the light rail. It's fast, we don't have to wait much time, it be on time and it can to a lot of places.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Great Move-In Process – The move-in process at ASU is great, though the lines can be long. You pull up your car, wait your turn, then a moving company unloads your items (labeled with your hall and room #) and by the time you finish checking in, your stuff is waiting for you in your room. This is perfect for the Arizona heat during mid-August.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Public transportation in the Tempe area is good, with free options around the Tempe campus and some that go to different areas in Tempe. The light rail goes downtown, and there are public buses that go around the valley. If you are on campus after dark and need to get somewhere else on campus, you can call the free safety escort to pick you up.

3 College Junior

Academics: For a journalism major, the professors are at the top of their game and possibly above it. They know there stuff inside and out and I enjoy attending class and being about to soak up every bit of information that they are able to provide and then more. The resources available are awesome for broadcast majors are well. The equipment on campus is unbelievable.

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!
