4 College Junior

Facilities: Being a Sun Devil – The privilege of being a sun devil is a great feeling and something to be proud of. Attending an ASU football games is one of the most exciting experiences in Arizona. The atmosphere is almost overwhelmingly joyous. Following the games, or maybe just a long day of classes, students can mosey on over to Mill Avenue for a drink. Mill Ave. offers an abundance of bars sprinkled with a few clubs; always a good time to be had.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are many exciting cites in downtown Phoenix. There are numerous towering big businesses, as well as ASU's new college of health and innovation. With the nearby shopping center is a surplus of stores, attractions, and restaurants in the area. There is bound to be something of interest for all ages.

Facilities: Campus Life – At the Downtown Phoenix Campus there isn't much near by, but a convenient light rail ride takes you to the lively main campus.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Jimmy John's – Decent food
Quickly made
Closes EARLY
They don't "stuff" their sandwiches
Expensive for what it is

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Downtown Phoenix Campus – Everything is relatively close together, but there is not much at all to do in the city.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Mixed Bag – There are a lot of Hispanic, Asian and Indian students. They are quite insular though.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Security – Tempe and the surrounding area can be rough. You should watch your laptop and wallet/purse. I feel safe walking around alone as a large male athlete, but I wouldn't walk around by myself if I was a girl.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Alot of Opportunities for Internships and Research! My school provides a lot of internship fairs and even some internship classe that you can take. For example, for me I took a Kinesiology internship class and the school has an affiliation with a lot of physical therapy clinics around the area, they helped me find a place and now im working there. Also, there are many research projects that allow undergrads to work as research assistants, it is an awesome experience!

4 College Senior

Transportation: Parking is expensive so a lot of people rely on public transportation. I think it is great! There some buses that are free and take you around the Tempe area. The most convenient for me has been the lightrail it goes from Phoenix to Mesa AZ stopping at both the downtown campus of ASU and the tempe campus. It is very punctual!

4 College Senior

Computers: Convenient Wifi Printers – There are a lot of computer labs and areas at Arizona State University, the locations are very accessible whether you are looking for a quiet place to study on your own or a more group setting. The only thing is that sometimes computers can be kind of slow starting up. There is wireless internet all over campus so that is not a problem with with people with their own laptops. The great thing is the wifi printing program that lets you program the printers from every computer lab and you just log in and print from your own laptop, it saves a lot of time!

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Love the Area! Tempe, AZ which is where the main campus of Arizona State University is located is a small town but there are so many things to do. The lightrail is a very convenient form of transportation which helps us to save a lot on parking and gas and we can get to downtown phoenix and to the other campus as well. There are several mountains nearby that are great for hiking!

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Party All Night! There is always something to do out here no matter the age. Asu is considered #1 party school around here and they surely do live up to that standard.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Very Wide Variety – Places around campus are excellent. I dont feel like im eating the same stuff everyday and i feel like a have many choices to choose from. Can be a little expensive but great food and service.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process is somewhat long but it is very worth it. It would help if they had more computers at the financial aid office and receive help in there.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Personally I feel that the food around campus is decent but it could be better. They all offer fast food services which is not healthy for students. There are some options where students can consume healthier foods but it is very scarce.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: House Parties – All clubs around here are for those who are 21+ with very little exceptions. Parties at The Vue are extremely overrated and usually turn out lame, don't waste your time. Most frat parties are the same way, it'd be best to send someone ahead to see what it's like before you head over. Usually house parties are the places to hit.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are short, but tan. The girls are mostly blonde. Rave culture is very big out here and all you'll hear at parties is house music.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not the Worst – Hassayampa and Barrett are the best dorms to live in on campus and it's usually only freshmen who reside in any of the dorms. Most upperclassmen live in Vista Del Sol, or some other apartment complex off campus. The dorm rooms are very spacious compared to most other colleges I've seen, however, the plumbing in Hassy in particular is pathetic as is the shower pressure. Overall, it could be worse.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School Spirit – There is a lot of school spirit at ASU. Many parents are involved as well. The football team is also well known by all the students so we get excited when there are games.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Social Life – Arizona State is a very social university and always has events going on. The student council put on a lot of school events for freshman to engage them as well as every other age group.

Diversity: There are many races at Arizona State University. There are clubs that bring them together and there are a few sororities and fraternities for different races.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Terrible Transpo – Permits for parking are outrageous! and access is terrible. I have had my car broken into, and nothing was done. I see lots of police giving tickets and towing cars, and nobody catching thieves~!

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Our Kids – Best looking, best attitude, best outlook, our kids rock!

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: ASU has a great support mechanism. The town of Tempe and the people of Phoenix in general. Since we are a tourist destination with year round activities, we abound with sports and entertainment venues, as well as a plethora of cultural diversity and educational opportunities. Phoenix supports ASU, and ASU supports Phoenix. It's a win win situation!

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at ASU has been okay. By being such a big school, it is hard to meet people if you do not know anyone without joining a fraternity or a sorority.

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!
