3 College Senior

Majors: So Far It's Okay, I Guess. I mean, I'm getting things done and it seems like I'm finally reaching a point at which I'm actually learning things, so that's good, right?

3 College Senior

Majors: Too Easy – The FMP program requires an audition/application process that's constantly stated as being "extremely difficult" to complete. My interview was too short and I didn't really have to do anything to get in. Everyone I know that applied the same time I did made it in as well.

4 College Senior

Majors: Good Courses – You learn a lot once you begin doing hands on work in film, but the courses seem to be taught to a group of children. Instructors shouldn't act like I'm five years old.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Things Have Been Ok So Far – I am an ASU online transfer student. I am fairly happy with the process so far, however things took quite a while to get rolling, and now I feel under a great deal of pressure to complete all of my tasks for enrollment and financial aid before classes start.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am an ASU online student and live in a completely different state.

College Sophomore

Diversity: As an ASU online student, I cannot correctly answer this question. I am a minority, though!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process Could Be a Little More Helpful – I am returning to college after a 13 year hiatus, so Financial Aid is very overwhelming to me. The amount of searches and forms to be completed is so time consuming, and as a mother, I fear that I may miss out on scholarships because I simply do not have the time to fill out 100 scholarship forms during the Summer while my kids are home from school. I would love to have had a Financial Aid counselor send me a list of pertinent scholarships, loans and grants for me to apply.

5 College Senior

Weather: Born and Raised in Az – I love Az weather. I love the dry hot summers and cool winters. Since we don't get rain a lot I love whenever we do.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Houses/Apartments Are Nice but Pricey – The majority of houses and apartments are very nice, but can be expensive. However I liked that the neighborhood is filled with fellow students.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am all for people joining the Greek life, however I feel that some fraternities and sororities shun those who are not apart of the Greek life. The only time I see Greeks be openly kind to random people is during their "Rush" time.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Very Protected – I use to live in the dorms and I appreciated that I could call "Safety Escort" to give me a ride from one side of campus to the other at night. I always feel safe.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Best to live close to campus Buses are OK bikes are better

2 College Senior

Parking: Better to ride a bike or take public transportation

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Graduate University Lifestyle – Nightlife is relatively good here in the campus. There are parties around the university. Specifically during the weekends students between the age 18 to 25 can be found in the bar or club in the Mill Avenue. I really like the light music because it is calm and soothing. If the party is organized then there is a maximum possibility for the cab to be called to take you back to the campus. But if you are with your roommates or close friends then you don't have to worry for transportation as they may give you a ride back.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Housing, NOT So Much Parking – Overall the housing around campus is convenient because the size of Tempe Arizona is fairly large. With that said it is an old neighborhood with narrow streets. Most landlords in the area are allow pets which is always a plus and pretty reasonable rent prices.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Party on and FEAR the FORK – ASU is an over all party school. Most parties do not get broken up because there are a ton of students. On occasion parties will be broken up and just sent home, very little students get an MIC a.k.a. minor in consumption. ASU is the ultimate school to socialize and party your pants off. There is some occasional punishment that is why ASU received an A-.

3 College Senior

Weather: Summers Are HOT! The weather doesn't really affect the campus experience. The summers in Arizona is just really hot making walking to class a little bit miserable!

4 College Senior

Computers: The computers on campus are great. There are average laptops and Apple computers. They all run very fast. Printing I believe is 10 cents a page. I personally have my own computer and printer but the computers on campus are great for emergencies.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Easy to Apply – It is fairly easy to apply to any program on campus, however keeping up with it is what matters. Make sure you take your critical classes when you're supposed to and get at least the required minimum grade in them. It is easy to stay on track if you use your DARS, which you can get from your MyASU page under where is lists your major. Just keep on top of the requirements for your program.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: The dorms, Taylor Place, have no declared a floor for Greek Life. People in Fraternities and Sororities can now live together on a floor. It brings new life to the social atmosphere of the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: SRC Is a Great Place to Workout – The SRC has just about any piece of workout equipment you could ask for, as well as a pool. It's a fun place to workout with friends or by yourself, there are tvs on some of the equipment so you don't have to miss your favorite shows. There are also classes available there that you can take. I definitely suggest checking it out.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Studying abroad is something that ASU values highly, not that you HAVE to do it, but if you want to there are many opportunities to do so. There are many different trips available during the school year or the semester and anyone can do it. There are also scholarships available for those in need, so don't be afraid to ask if it is something you are interested in.

1 College Senior

Parking: I go to the downtown Phoenix campus and there is nothing but meters surrounding campus. It wouldn't be so bad if the meters lasted long enough to get through a class. But they don's and we all end up with $50 tickets because we were in class and didn't get out enough to feed the meter.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots of Opportunities for Success – ASU has great events, advisers, and online access to information about internships, research positions, and jobs. The Job Portal through ASU's website is really helpful and has job posting for many different areas. The advisers and professors are typically always ready and willing to help people who come to them with questions. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there!

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The wifi at ASU can get really busy especially around finals and registration. Sometimes you can't even get on, but typically if you use the guest wifi, there are less people on it and you can typically get through.

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!
