2 College Junior

Diversity: Well there aren't many different races in this school. Most of the students here are white, and there are a few students here of different races. There aren't any problems though it's just not that diverse. As for religion its pretty diverse. Also for the sexual orientation, as of recently there has been a recent change. It is pretty accepted here.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The malls and food places aren't too far from campus. They are kind of easy to locate. Arizona is a huge place so it takes some getting used to.

College Junior

Parking: I don't drive or anything so I'm not really sure how it goes.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Being able to cook healthy food is probably one of the pros. But having to pay electricity is a con, the bill is pretty outrageous even when you don't use the electricity often. There are many apartments around but they are pretty pricey. There has been some robberies in the apartment complexes.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's been some robberies and stuff on campus. Some shootings also. The security needs to be tightened up more so these things can be avoided. I don't think they are always on duty. They need to walk around campus at night because I would feel more safe. I feel safe during the day on campus but not so much at night. There needs to be more lights lit so I could feel comfortable on campus.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is all kinds of diversity at ASU. There are many groups/clubs that promote and celebrate different religion, sexual preference, politics, culture, and ethnicity.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: while many of they facilities on campus are quite aesthetic, there are many that need some improvements and more cleaning. The athletic center is very nice and overall the campus is pretty nice.

4 College Freshman

Computers: We have many updated and useful computer labs but sometimes the wi-fi is not very reliable. Printing is available but not always reliable in all locations.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The most commonly used forms of transportation for me are the light rail, the zip cars, and taxicabs.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The Strictness Is Lax – The university is not overbearing in any rules, and i would by no means call the faculty or the rules "strict." People are free to lead the life they wish to live.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: As I walk around campus at ASU, there is a wide range of ethnicities. I don't feel as though any race is under represented. There are people from all over the world speaking different languages. It truly is an enriching experience.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Not paid for social work and it is 1 year long 16 hours a week. Problem with internships is it is difficult for those of us who have to work to pay for college to attend school and internship and work all at the same time. School is still geared to rich young live at home students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Tuition has gone up 19% since 2009. Fees have been added to different majors, and the quality of Professors is low. I paid for the name of the college, but it did not live up to my standards of what I expected for my education. I graduate with frustration and disappointment. Am I prepared...NO!

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Downtown campus is downtown, so on campus just fast food and one cafe in ASU. Average

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: At Arizona State we have a very diverse group of people. There are many different types of cultures. The best part is there are a lot of attractive girls. The social life is very active there is usually always something to do.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Modernized Dorms – Most of the dorms at Arizona State are pretty modernized and have a contemporary look to them. At almost every dorm there is some type of restaurant where you can walk down and grab a bite to eat.

5 College Junior

Computers: Computing Commons – The Computer labs at Arizona State are really good and they give you the opportunity to use the operating system you are comfortable with. The networking is awesome and you rarely have outages.

4 College Junior

Weather: Very Sunny – During the Summer it can be very hot however most of us are not on campus, however in the fall, winter, and spring you have spme of the best weather in the country.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: So Many Locations to Choose from – Arizona State has a vast variety of places to grab something to eat. It can be fast or sit in but you have a great selection.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Extra Curriculars – At Arizona State you get the option to be involved with many extra curricular activities such as intramural sports or marching band. It has great facilities for any typ of enviroment and they are always improving.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm in my third year of attending ASU, and I couldn't be happier here. Not only am I proud to attend ASU because it's a great school, but also because I am many of family members who attended ASU. The atmosphere of the campus over all is always so positive and lively. Another thing that I loved is that if I was ever struggling in a subject they notified me and guided me where I could receive free tutoring.

5 College Junior

Transportation: ASU offers free transportation to all the campuses, the light rail is so close it is literally on campus, and the zip cars are located on campus as well.

4 College Junior

Parking: The University parking permits can be expensive, however I discovered that they offer free transportation going to all campuses. This has helped me out financially in so many ways. I now take the bus to the Tempe campus and after my classes there, I take the shuttle that's offered to the Downtown campus. Another form of transportation that can be very helpful is the light rail. You can drive to the light rail, park in their free parking lots, and take the light rail directly to school

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Don't Count on It – I was very happy to be awarded with 13,000 dollars a year in a scholarship which helped to make my college decision. A month after classes started, they informed me my award was being cut in half and I owed more money that semester.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Go Sun Devils – My experience at ASU is indescribable its been a fun journey so far, ASU hold so many unique traditions and activities that make ASU so unique.

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!
