Facilities: I really think that the facilities are very clean. i was there on summer, that is why it was kind of quiet

4 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse – Melting pot of all ethnicities. There is alot of ethnic resturants

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The nightlife is good in tempe; very diverse, fun, and semi-wild.

5 College Senior

Majors: Criminology/Criminal Justice – My program is fantastic. The professors are amazing and are very supportive of the students. One of the top professors in the program is allowing me to work with him on graduate level research this year. The opportunities given to us really enhance the college experience.

Diversity: Every Kind of Person Here – While ASU is known as a party school so you would expect to find only frat guys and party kids, once you look deeper you can see there are so many different kinds of people. There are those studying for their masters, others doing ground breaking research, and students who belong to just about every kind of club you could think of. Arizona state is really whatever you want to make it and there is a group for everyone here you just have to do a little searching.

Local Atmosphere: College Town Tempe – Tempe is a great college town! From campus you are just minutes away from Tempe marketplace which has shops, restaurants, and the movie theatres as well as mill avenue which has more shopping and eating as well as a number of bars the college kids love to frequent. Tempe is now connected to Mesa and Phoenix through the light rail which is great for students who are attending one of the other ASU campuses but also if they just want to make their way to a diamondbacks game or any of the other great things the Phoenix area has to offer.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Dorms Close to Everything You Need. The dorms at ASU are within walking distance to just about everything you would need. You can walk to restaurants, shopping and most importantly campus. The newer dorms such as hasayampa are nicer and have more amenities. These dorms have a cafeteria, market and great hang out room with a kitchen if you need to cook or a tv and games if you just want to chill.

Majors: Really Rewarding Great Teachers – I have yet to have a really bad teacher. The history department is really fascinating and I can honestly say Ive learned a lot. There is a lot of variety and research going on at ASU and lots of out of school opportunities to learn about the History in the classroom.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Places, Not Crazy Variety – Mill avenue has lots of fun places, like Mellow Mushroom, la Bocca, and slices. Outside of that it tends to get more expensive and lose the student life but still plenty of options. chompies really good

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Not in It but Seems Fun – Greek life isnt for me, but I have lots of friends in it who are very inclusive and let others partake in their activities. Fun for everyone involved

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive but Nice – I live in Barrett Honors college. Very expensive but really nice amenities. Eco friendly which is nice. Parking is too expensive and not convenient for students who live there. Have to park on third floor. Great student experience though.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Campus Opportunities – Arizona State University has been the best school I have ever attended. With the diversity, extra-curricular activities, networking and class selections, there are so many opportunities to grow and experience life as a college student – and then some. Go Sun Devils!

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Personal Safety – The campus is well equipped with emergency call stations, and there are campus police that station around campus during the day and at night. Campus is also pretty well lit, so you are almost always in a lit area out in the open to feel more safe. If there are any homeless people walking about at night, they are escorted off campus by campus police for safety reasons.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors are always very willing to help students, and to assist in helping study habits for their individual class. Many professors also include multiple Teaching Assistants for the students to visit for extra practice problems before exams, receiving a previous student's perspective on the material.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Lots of Great Experience! For my undergrad, I spent four semesters in internships, all of which were unpaid. Although I was seriously broke, the extensive experience more than made up for it. When I entered my field immediately after graduation, many of my coworkers were shocked to learn that I had just graduated because I behaved professionally, knew what I was doing, and "acted like I had it all together."

Majors: Not Terribly Difficult – Getting into my program at ASU was relatively easy. The admissions process was fairly standard: resume or curricula vitae, letters of recommendation, statement of purpose. The admissions department was also helpful; they answered my numerous questions and helped me build a custom plan of study.

Majors: A Great Education for an Education Major – I am very happy with the education I received at ASU. My professors were top-notch, especially Dr. Blasingame. I got a job immediately out of the chute, and I have job opportunities falling into my lap (even in this tough economy!) because of my degree and experience at ASU.

Majors: ASU offers an extensive variety of majors, most of which end with internships and job opportunities. For example, I spent my last four semesters in internships and got tons of hands-on experience in my chosen field.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of places to eat. A lot of restaurants and cafe near campus accept maroon and gold dollars meaning you can swipe your student card that has money loaded on it and you can pay for your meal. There is a ton of hole in the wall amazing restaurants on Mill Ave. You have to check out Devil's Den!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life on campus is very active. There is always something to do around campus! The Memorial Union is very popular and a lot of people hang out and study there.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It is SO hot here! You can be walking 5 minutes and be automatically sweating. It's nice though because you can always relax by the pool and you can relax in some shorts!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very involved and you particapate in many charity events. It's not dominating but plays an active role at ASU. It's a great way to meet new people!

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Unlimited Food – Nice dinning halls especially at Barret Honor's College.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Quite Diverse – ASU has a big student body. So there are many students with different ethic background. You just have to find it. Although some ethics population will be larger than others. It is still quite diverse.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Free Shuttle Bus! There are free shuttle bus that runs around campus frequently. Like 5-10 minutes per bus. And there are also free shuttle bus that runs back and forth to different campuses. Especially Tempe to Downtown Phoenix and vise versa. So it is quite convenient.

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!
