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.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Internet connections are always good from your personal laptop, as is printing, but getting on a windows computer in the computing commons is a hassle and can take a lot of time

1 College Senior

Parking: the parking at ASU is outrageous. Plan on walking and not driving if you can. the pay to park lots are expensive and the parking permits are rediculously expensive. I don't know who enjoys paying 800 for a term to park in a garage or for around 600 you can park and walk a few miles to your classes. The parking police are everywhere and out to get you.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: If You Get Caught Drinking You'll Get a Warning – If you get caught dinking in a campus dorm you'll most likely get a warning and have to have a couseling session. If you get caught again you'll probably get expelled.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Crime – in recent years there seems to be an increase in campus crime based on theft and molestation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience at ASU so far has been incredible. I'm so happy I chose to become a sun devil! Everything has been wonderful. I can't wait to see what other adventures come my way.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking across campus alone, until it comes to nighttime. It's a little sketchy at times, but there is a service available to walk you across campus safely, which definitely comes in handy.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have only been at ASU for seven weeks and have already learned so much! I'm really excited to move forward.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are plenty of buses and light rails available, but having a car on campus is inconvenient. The parking is never where you need it to be, and you end up walking far to where you need to go anyways. Parking permits are very expensive as well.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of white people at ASU, but there is a lot of student diversity. There are many foreign students and people from all over the country as well.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the libraries on campus. There are so many books and journals available as well as computers that are easily accessible and very convenient. The athletic center is very clean and extremely convenient as well. There are plenty of machines and classes to take. There are tons of campus activities. There are tie dye events, ice cream socials, dance parties, you name it we've got it.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek System – Greeks have a bad reputation at ASU due to the newer dean, however they are very diverse organizations focusing on the full college experience, such as furthering your education and having a blast before you have to face the real world.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The ASU student body is very attractive and well dressed. Appearance seems to be everything with this crowd as students are rarely seen in sweats even in early morning classes. Social life is almost a degree in itself, weighing high on the priority scale.

Nightlife: So Much to Do – Honestly, there is so much to do at ASU for every type of person. If you want parties, there are plenty of them on every day of the week. Mill is booming on the weekends, so if you're over 21 that is definitely the place to be. Scottsdale is about a 20 minute drive, and has some great 18+ clubs. ASU puts on events called "Devils After Dark" on all four campuses every weekend, so if you are looking for something fun to do that doesn't involve partying all night, then that could be for you! ASU really does have something for everyone, the nightlife shouldn't disappoint.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The Place to Be for Journalism Majors – The facilities of the Cronkite Building located at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication on the Downtown campus are absolutely amazing. They include everything from multiple studios with state of the art equipment, to a new media innovation lab, and more edit bays and conference rooms or class rooms than you could even need. It is an incredible building full of all of the resources, including amazing professors, that any aspiring journalist could possibly need or want.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public Transit – Public transportation is the best way to get around campus and around tempe. There are free buses like orbit and flash forward, flash back, but the city buses are just outrageously expensive and the U-pass doubled in price! otherwise they are convenient

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Law Enforcement – The police here are really strict when it comes to alcohol consumption. I enjoy this a lot because I'm less tempted to go out and party and can focus on school.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Wireless Access – There is no wireless access at UNiversity towers, which is on campus living... How is that possible? How are we expected to work in groups if we can't access the internet because there is no WIFI. A lot of times it would crash then we would be screwed for homework since a lot of it is done online

4 College Junior

Majors: Global Studies – I am a Global Studies major and it was extremely easy to get into. All I had to do was meet with an adviser to declare my major. My adviser very clearly explained to me which classes I needed to take and helps me set up my schedule every semester. One interesting thing about Global Studies is the requirement to go abroad. You can fulfill this requirement by studying abroad or interning abroad. For me this was a dream come true as I've always wanted to see the world and experience different cultures.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great Global Opportunities – ASU is a pretty big school that offers almost every major imaginable. Their Global Studies program is fantastic. They offer so many great Global options from study abroad to internships and great scholarships to help cover the cost. All of the professors here are great. They are all very passionate about what they do and really want to help their students succeed. While I do wish it was more affordable to attend ASU I do understand that the financially difficult times makes it next to impossible to get an affordable education. Despite it's reputation ASU is not just a party school. While there are many clubs close by and awesome partying opportunities on campus, ASU is very focused on academics as well. You can't succeed here if you spend all your time partying and don't put in equal time with the books and class.

2 College Junior

Parking: Everyone complains about the parking because it's expensive and inconvenient. The only lot affordable is Lot 59 and it's all the way across campus. There is no where to park within a mile radius from the school, and on campus be prepared to walk... a lot. The Flash buses are a big help though they are pretty slow. It's probably easier if you live on campus to not have a car.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Mill Avenue – The night life here is the highlight of the school. Mill Avenue gets a lot of attention and tons of people go out at night. However, if you are underage you basically can't do anything which is a bit of a bummer.

3 College Junior

Academics: The academics at ASU are average. It definitely has a big school feel in the classroom and most teachers are less interested in the course as they are in their research. Even in person classes have a lot of online work which is convenient until you ask the teacher a question and they don't want to answer. The work load is pretty large, but I usually take a lot of classes so I might be biased. The worst aspect of ASU is how expensive everything is. I would like to study abroad but I can't afford it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School Spirt for Football Games – School Spirit for our football games are amazing. We have themes which make the games fun.

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!
