4 College Student

Facilities: The facilities at Barrett are great. They are all extremely new and very updated and state of the art. There are also great work opportunities also available to Barrett Students.

4 College Student

Facilities: There's always something going around on the campus. People studying, people partying - the possibilities on campus are endless. For the most part though there are interesting things going on always.

3 College Student

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek Life but from what I understand it is a great way to meet people and start many relationships. It is also a way to get involved in parties.

3 College Student

Scholarships: The school offers good aide to Scholars and students who search it out, but often times loans are offered like daunting candy.

3 College Student

Parking: I don't drive but I think it's ridiculous to drive in college. The cost grossly outweighs the benefits so there's not much I can say about the parking.

3 College Student

Academics: There are pretty great options at the school due to my enrollment as a Barrett student. There are tons of opportunities regardless of whether you search for them or not. They pretty much knock on your doorstep.

3 College Student

Academics: It's like most other public institutions - large class sizes, overworked professors, and lots of careless students. But for the most part one can help if they search for it.

4 College Student

Nightlife: ASU is a grey place to party and study. There's always options when you want to go out. Even though Greek parties get raised they tend to be great as can be. There are always night life options regardless of what you like to do.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Traveling off campus doesn't really happen too often for me due to my not having a vehicle, but when Traveling off campus is an option the food is typically pretty good but it seems like it is the same as most other University options.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Barrett has the nicest dorms on campus. The facilities are new as extremely spacious and well kept up. The food is fantastic and honestly the experience and people there are just plain awesome.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It seems like pretty much every other state school. There are great opportunities if you search for them and parties if you serch for them as well. It's all about having a balance.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: The people are friendly and it's easy to join clubs and be a part of activities around campus. The atmosphere is friendly and people are very accepting regardless of your major and the stereotypes associated with it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Depends on what hall you are in, but there are always many options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to eat at especially downtown.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: It is so lively and beautiful at night. Everybody gets ready to party and its a fun atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are emergency poles at our school where if you feel like you are in danger, press the button and help will come asap.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It depends on what aid you want, but fafsa, and grants are the way to go.

1 College Freshman

Parking: The parking permit costs around $900 so its very difficult to find any parking that's cheap.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ASU is the best school not only because of the party scene but the academics and diversity as well.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The teachers are great, but the workload can be a little too much sometimes.

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!
