Drug Safety: Nobody forces anyone to do anything they don't want to here. If somebody wants to participate in the use of drugs and alcohol, then he or she will find plenty of avenues for that. If a student has no interest in drugs and alcohol, then he or she will have no trouble finding like-minded peers.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Barrett, and I can say that overall I am very pleased with the housing options offered here. The rooms are spacious and well-furnished, and they are clean enough on move-in day. As good as the housing options are however, the cost is a point of contention. Furthermore, the housing process is very tedious, as getting the room layout you like with the people you would like to live with make it difficult.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are very focused on outward appearances at this school. Girls (and guys) are often seen pretty dressed up for class. The social atmosphere at this school is somewhat cliquey, so it makes it more difficult to make friends.

College Freshman

Athletics: I have no opinion on this, but the football team manages to get ample fan support.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation did not affect my life too much while living at ASU.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are plenty of emergency phones around campus, but the unlit pathways make walking through campus at night feel unsafe. I do not see a very strong police presence on campus, so the school should work to make sure that that becomes less of a problem.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is located right in the middle of the valley. There are plenty of things to do just in Tempe, including shopping at Tempe Marketplace, watching shows at the Tempe Center for the Arts, and taking nature walks nearby.

3 College Freshman

Academics: As with any educational institution, some professors are clearly very interested in and enthusiastic about the material they teach, thereby making it easier for students to learn. Other professors are not able to teach students in a way that the students can avoid spending extra time outside of class trying to learn what they should have been able to grasp in lecture. The workload is fairly simple to deal with, and there are plenty of places to study.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is very strict when it comes to underage drinking, so this definitely affects students' social lives because many are forced to go off-campus to engage in such activities. ASU seems fairly lenient with guests.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life, so I don't know much about it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options for off-campus dining. It is nice to know that when you get tired of dining hall food, you can always find something that will satisfy your hunger, and all within a reasonable price.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I am not involved with partying or the bar scene.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The student body at ASU is extremely diverse. There are students from all over the world here. With that said, people from different countries do not really mingle with each other. Many people seem to just stay within their own groups, which seem to be divided on the basis of nationality, and sometimes even ethnicity.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The proximity to campus is probably the best part about the off-campus housing options. With that said, there is not much variety in where students can live, and the conditions of the rooms are not the best.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: ASU is a great school period and gives a lot of leniency to its students.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is plenty of housing for a great price if you're a student.

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!
