3 College Senior

Facilities: Good, but There's One Main Improvement I'd Make – Being a larger person (though losing weight now) and also rather tall, I notice in a lot of classrooms don't really keep people like me in mind, and use small side desks I can't use. There are some ugly buildings too (only a couple), but other than that, I'd say the quality is good.

2 College Junior

Majors: No to an Internship – I haven't had an internship and although it seems pretty cool. From what I have heard the pay is horrible and the hours suck. I have a child who I would like to support & be around. I'm going to make it worth my time if I'm going to be away from him.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The MU has a great amount of variety when it comes to food. But the reason I give it a grade of C is because there isn't a lot of places to eat healthy for a reasonable price

4 College Freshman

Weather: Sunshine Most of the Time – It seems like everyday is sunny. However, in the mornings it can be a little chilly but it usually warms up from noon on. This means that you will most likely wear a jacket to your early class but you end up taking it off after your class. Overall, sunshine seems to be 90% of the time. There are some rainy days because of monsoon season.

College Freshman

Greek Life: None on My Campus – There isn't a Greek life on my campus because I am at West campus.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Mostly Friendly – Most of the guys and girls are friendly, but there's every once in a while you run into a couple snobby people.

Campus Dining: Ok but Repetitive – You get really sick of the food on campus after a couple times in a row. There are only so many times you can eat the same thing (especially at their high prices!). The restaurants and places in the area to eat are way better priced than on campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Awesome Affordable Tasty – There are many restaurants near Arizona State University West. From Taco Bell to Goodcents, there are really many options for students within walking distance. Domino's Pizza is also a great option because they accept M&G (campus food plan card). Taco Bell does not accept M&G, but they do give a discount if you show them your ASU ID. Overall, there really are many great places to go off campus when you are hungry!

Greek Life: There is a decent amount of greek life on campus. All the sorrorities and fraternities are very secretive and don't talk about much unless you are a brother or sister. The fee's can also be expensive but for some students they swear by them. I think it is sort of lame in the aspect you are paying for friends but the comradary seems valuable. They often host parties and are always doing something.

Nightlife: The nightlife in Tempe is pretty awesome. You can choose the different type of scene you want in accordance with your preferences. There are some 18 and older clubs but they tend not to be very popular. The local frats and sorroritys are constantly holding house parties and there is a local car company that chauffers you back to your house. The lightrail runs right through campus and into phoenix so it is cheap and easy to get around. There are also huge apartment complexes that always have some commotion going on.

Computers: Decent but Could Be Improved – There are quite a few computer hubs around campus but they are very busy. It is often really hard to find a spot but the network reliability is pretty sound. There is always a connection and the speed is adequate but can be a little slow when trying to run torrents or a video stream. Wireless access is normally good but this past year I have found that it is hard to connect. I have to run diagnostics on my mac several times before I can get it to sync.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife at ASU seemed the funnest while doing homework at a hookah lounge.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Decent Variety, Bad Hours – There are a few good places to eat on campus like Devils Diner, Dave's Doghouse, Engrained, and Barrett the Honor's College's Dining Hall. Then you have your typical fast food (Subway, Papa Johns, Chick-Fil-A). The main problem is the schedule hours kinda suck, and at normal res hall locations like Hassayampa the food sure gets old quick. It just means you have to venture out into campus, which is a sometimes lengthly undertaking. Staff can be unpleasant at times, but most are pretty good. Food quality does vary significantly depending on whose cooking in the dining hall.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Arizona State is very diverse in it's opportunities around campus. There is generally always something to do.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is a very diverse campus, with many different cultures and multiple ethnicities.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: For starters, the technology at Arizona State University is very modern, however not all that efficient. The network is often very slow, and often very difficult to connect to. As a full-time student with a lot on my plate, it can often be frustrating. However, when the network isn't being 'stubborn', for lack of a better word, it works just fine.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Great Early Childhood Education Program – New iTeachAZ program is a great opportunity for education majors to complete their degree and be in high demand by school districts.

3 College Junior

Parking: Covered parking is expensive. Cheap lots are on the edge of campus and a good hike from classes especially when it is 110 degrees.

Campus Housing: Living on Campus – I love living on campus especially because the CA on the floor is extremely friendly. We are always doing interesting things such as going to 5 guys for dinner and having movie nights in the hall. We are currently thinking about having a bowling night for our floor. Or just scehduling a floor party so everyone can just hang out and watch movies in the student lounge that is located across the hall in the building.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Phoenix – The arizona center is like a little plaza provides a little shopping center and a movie theater that is within walking distance. But that is not the only place where shopping is avaliable giving that we live downtown there are many other things that are avaliable such as comedy clubs and music and the arizona art museum just off the light rail.

Diversity: I have only been going to school on campus at ASU for a semester and I can already see that there are people from all over the world. Just in my classes there are people from all parts of the country. When walking around campus to and from classes there are signs showing clubs for different political views, religions, and ethnicities.

Off-Campus Dining: Convenience Rocks! Arizona state is located right in the heart of Tempe, Arizona so say hello to downtown and the state famous Mill ave! There you can find chain restaurants(BK, Jack in the box, Five guys, Panda express) as well as smaller local restaurants (phoenicia cafe, michael monti's la casa vieja, Ztejas) that are all excellent and know that most of the clients are students so prices are kept reasonable.

Facilities: Advising Is Exactly What Is Done! In Arizona State advising is just down right helpful. The advisors are not uncomfortable to talk to, they really listen to your questions and find the best solutions for your situation.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Easily Accessible – Things got a little confusing with all the forms I had to fill out, but I received a very good amount of aid and it helped me very much!

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Amazing Experience! Being here at ASU gave me a chance to meet new people, expand my horizons, and explore a new city! I wouldn't trade my memories for the world!

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!
