5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A Breath of Intelligence – I am currently a full time special education teacher at a rural high school. So, I spend most of my day teaching students life skills, and elementary level math and English skills. It it enlightening to me to go home and work my brain in class. Although it can be exhausting, keeping up with a full-time teaching career and being a part-time student; it is rewarding! I have learned a lot over the past 8 weeks and I can not wait to stretch my brain even more!

3 College Junior

Athletics: School Spirit – I think that all of the ASU students, support staff and faculty do a nice job with showing school spirit.

4 College Junior

Academics: Autism Spectrum Disorder – I just finished my first class in the Curriculum & Instruction: Focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder Master's Program and it was very challenging, but enjoyable at the same time. I am currently a high school special education teacher and I knew I wanted to go back to school to get my Master's. Well, I decided on ASU because I have alwasy been very fascinated with Autism and have worked with many children and adults who fall under the "spectrum". In the past 2 months, I have learned more about Autism and the underlying disorders and deficits involved with the disorder then I ever thought possible. The professors are wonderful and give great feed back. The grading is done in a professional manner and I have been very satisfied with the education I have recieved. I can not wait to take my next class and learn even more about the wonderful field that I am in!

Campus Housing: Living on campus feels like a rite of passage to me. I live in the Hassayampa dorms, which are considered the best for freshman because they are the newest and you don't have a communal bathroom, but a private one shared between 4 people. Pretty much any dorm you live in as a freshman is reasonable, but I've heard that the dorms Best, Irish, and Hayden are the worst because they are the first dorms build on campus, and the only dorms with communal bathrooms that barely even get hot water. If you're upperclassmen, the Vista de Sol apartments are campus owned and very clean and quaint for student living, and I have heard nothing but good things about them.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Meal Plan Advice – The dining hall on campus is really hit or miss. Sometimes they serve decent food, where other times they serve things that even a dog wouldn't eat. Their breakfast is always good though which is nice, and they even serve it from 11am-2pm on weekends. Advice I wish I would have received before purchasing my meal plan though is to do all "M&G" dollars which are good towards eateries on and around campus, and also the convenient store. That way you are always happy with your meal, instead of some nights going hungry because the dining hall food is so gross.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personal Experience – An incident occurred a few weeks ago when a few girls from my sorority were walking to our weekly meeting around 9:00 pm. They were walking in a group and had physically entered the building when 3 black males aggressively approached them snatching one girl's iPhone, while another wrestled another girl to the ground trying to get her laptop. Luckily, another girl in my sorority arrived and pushed the attacker off of my sister and the 3 men left in a get-away car witnessed by more of my sisters. A few more related incidences happened after that and eventually they were caught. These incidents shook up everyone's feeling of safety on campus, but an officer came to our chapter meeting and assured us there are secret traps currently set up around campus to try and prevent that happening again, but also shared ways to stay safe and protect yourself.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great Sunshine! Its a very impersonal experience because of how large the student body is, but my academic advisor is superior and makes up for a lot of that. The staff is friendly but understandably unyielding in academic policies for the sheer number of students they have to deal with. I'd prefer that instructors not put so much of the class online that we feel that class is pointless unless it is specified as an online course.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I would recommend to finish any financial aid business as soon as possible. If not, be prepared to wait for an hour or so when everyone is at campus trying to finish it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek? Where? ASU, I must say, has a very wide group of Greek Life. However, there is absolutely not that much Greek housing as you would expect. You will be attending tons of parties though.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are many places where you can get access to a computer with internet and shoot an email or turn in an assignment. I think ASU has made it very convenient for students. Printing on the other hand can be a bit tricky. I have found myself losing my Sun Card and not being able to print. Overall, computers at ASU is quite satisfactory.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Not Sure – Lots of people smoke and drink, including weed but I don't know that much.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great University – Good programs offered, large variety too. ASU is known to be a party school so if you're social, you're likely to have a lot of fun here. If you aren't too social, it's still an awesome school to go to.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: High Spirit – Great school spirit. We support the football team by going to the games and wearing all gold. There is always school spirit and chanting of "ASU" at several events.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Many on-campus security personnel present. Fire drills are routinely performed and emergency call boxes are plenty present throughout campus and on-campus living quarters. I feel quite safe at ASU.

3 College Junior

Athletics: ASU is big on Athletics. We have huge school spirit especially when it comes to football. Our campus is large and we promote healthy eating habits as well as exercise. We have a huge gym available to all students and even work out classes. You will find students running through campus for working out as our campus is large enough for people to walk, jog, or run through it for exercising.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: ASU offers a huge ethnic variety. We have people from all over the world and nation. As for looks, we have alot of good looking people and we have our own calender for the top 12 hottest girls at ASU. The social life is great especially at night. All around tempe you will see that students are up at all times of the day.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to eating off campus. By far one of the most popular areas to go to is down Mill Avenue. There you will find a lot of different bars and restaurants to eat at.

2 College Junior

Weather: It is really hot and walking between classes becomes exhausting in 100+ degree weather

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are not too many discounts but there are a lot of variety of places to eat near the campus and the cost is not too high.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Good Especially for Parties. There are alot of apartments close to campus and many are by the lightrail, which takes you directly to the school. Prices are average 600 monthly for 2 bedrooms, which is pretty good. Many apartments are not fancy or looking great, since college students who rent often don't take care of place very well.
Fancy ones are more expensive typically paying at least 500 a month each individual. A lot of parties, which in a student's case,is great. Cops will bust some parties but not most of them. Some apartment complexes are known for having rude and inefficient landlords and office staff.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A couple of places to eat off campus. Many college students of course save their travel time and order either pizza or jimmy john's. Food is average based on location from campus and taste. Prices are ok.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Overall, the facilities are nice.Nothing fancy or advanced, but they do a good job of being sustainable. The dorms are pretty much average. The health center is under construction for expansion and there is a new business building being built. Recreation center average, nothing unique or good. They are improving overall but focusing more on sustainability than anything else.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Recreation Center – There is enough equipment to workout for everyone. The pool is huge and amazing. There are many fields so nobody has to stay to wait for someone to finish. Everything is well organized and cleaned. There's healthy smoothies for sell at the entrance. Everything just fits pefectly.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There Is a Lot of White People – I would say at this university there is a high percentage of white people, and that;included, there are many other different races and cultures that I find interesting. I think that all races are collaborative towards one another and that they are friendly. Most of sexual orientation on the campus; what i think, is girls because to me I see it as Men are about 1/4 of the university, but most is all of women.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Had to go through a lot of people and loopholes to get my financial aid.

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!
