4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I Love It Here. Other than the heat!!! I'm from San Diego and used to cooler weather, but I love the environment of this college town. You have to fight and stay focused though if you get caught up in the social aspect of it because there is always something going on.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I Had a Really Hard Time. I am from out of state and my tuition is really expensive, and in order to get in state my parents cant help with tuition. I am only able to take one class this semester due to the fact that was all I could get money for and will have to do so until I get in state. I couldn't even get enough money in loans. I received more information about financial aid through the local community college.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Poly Campus – The polytechnic campus has a more chill atmosphere. I love that I don't have to rush around campus and i can take my time when traveling from class to class.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have enjoy the time I have spent at the polytechnic campus. I was worried about getting lost in a big class or campus. But polytechnic has smaller classes and you get to know most of the students there.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: I don't eat on campus often the few times i have it have been a good size sandwich for a fair price.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Never a Worried Moment – Although there is occasional crime on campus or around campus, I have never felt worried at school. There are always officers wandering around, and as long as you're not mixed up with the students at the bottom of the basket, you're totally safe.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Typical College Campus – There is a plethora of students here, ranging from the socially awkward to the stereotypical jocks; Most of the people here are party people, which is unfortunate, but it is expected. I'm not one to judge the guys, but the girls are pretty cute as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining Halls Need More Quality – While there are a variety of options available on campus (many of which are fast foods), the dining halls consistently lack quality. Granted, some meals are often delightful, yet even the coveted honors dining hall seems to slack in regards to food quality.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not Overwhelming – While I'm sure that at least half of the students have or currently do drugs, it's not an intolerable issue by any means. Drinking is more common and leads to more dropouts.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Out of State Student – I am an out of state student and receiving financial aid is incredibly easy for me. Based on my high school grades ASU rewarded me with a $40,000 scholarship to spread throughout my four years at this campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Entering Into a Communications Major – At the end of my freshman year I switched my major from Business to Communications. I was actually a very easy process. All that I had to do was meet with both of my advisors and discuss my options. After that I made my new communications class schedule and I was done!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Am a Communications Major – I am a new found communications major and I absolutely love it. The classes are much more interesting than business and I find myself actually eager to go to class in the mornings. I am a little nervous about finding a job after college just because this major is so broad. However, I am working on making connections now so employers will already know about me by the time that I graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus apartments are very nice and close to campus. However, they can be very expensive. It costs about $400 dollars to share a room with someone else off campus and about $700 dollars per month to have a room of your own.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Just Changed My Major – I started college as a Business major. I thought that I would love it but ended up completely despising it. This semester I changed to Communications. The changing process was easy and I am so much more happy with the major I am at right now.

Academics: Knowledgeable Staff and Support – The classes were rigorous and lecture intensive, but professors were very knowledgeable.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Shuttle Bus Is Convenient – They provide a shuttle bus between campuses and from downtown.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: It Was Ok – When I first contacted ASU to review the finanical aide info it was difficult to get people to call me back. Once they did though it was helpful.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Get What You Deserve – I have not got in any trouble with the university, but I hear they are strict with alcohol on campus as they should be. I believe everyone deserves a 2nd chance and I believe they give lots of people chances if they mess up.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The tempe campus and downtown campus are the campuses I attend. Feel very safe with security and police monitoring the walkways. I would just getting locks for bikes and keep an eye on your skateboard cause those are about the only things that aren't safe.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Arizona State University, gets their students. They make sure everyone is comfortable. Providing varieties of place to eat, have fun, and meet people. By far the best university I have ever been too. It is always sunny which makes you want to be active. They also make it easy for people who do not drive to get around with the transportation provided. There is school spirit everywhere which makes me feel welcome and glad to be a Sundevil

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Tempe Marketplace – Variety of different restaurants. The scenery is great with the palm trees. It is a place where you can go shopping for your school supplies, clothes, or dine. The movie theatre is located within the marketplace so after a bite to eat it is a great place to take a date. Did I mention Coldstone Ice Cream? This place has it all!

5 College Junior

Transportation: Campus Shuttles – The campus are extremely helpful for students to transport in between the campus. They are completely free, air conditioned, and the seating arrangements are awesome. All you need to know is that you get one the right bus and be there on time.

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!
