5 College Student

Weather: Not Much – Its always sunny here but if there is rain, i just take the lightrail

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Not Prevolent – It would mean to be a regular user or in the circuit to know what really goes on behind the scenes

4 College Student

Athletics: Sports Pretty Darn Good – The sports are very varied and inviting. one has but to ask to be on a non-competetive team. Very recreational

2 College Student

Parking: Parking at ASU is organized caos. There are great places to park, but you have to get there early, and know where they are. If you decide to pay for parking there is no problem with it.

2 College Student

Greek Life: Not personally being involved in a sorority, I don't really know anything about their activity. The only way I know they exist i the groups of girls wearing the same shirts walking around campus.

3 College Student

Campus Dining: Dining at ASU is very diverse. There are many available dining halls that are pretty well stocked with a wide range of food. Mind you, not very much of the food is healthy, but it's not mediocre school food either.

5 College Freshman

Computers: Greek Life – I am involved in Greek Life and it is NOT what people see it as, party, party, party, drama, "a scene" to be in, it really isn't. We raise money for an awesome cause, promote schlastic excellence and also provide a support group. Lots of fundraising goes on more than "party, party, party" it is a chance to give back to the community and become professional leaders. (yes with business meetings). If interested, ask a greek brother or sister for information on joining, everyone is very willing to give you recruitment information and rush info. Get incolved with your community and come meet some awesome people, and the fees (DO NOT) got to paying for school, when you join you will find out they go to something that will benefit you and your bros/sisters.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Their are a variety of transportation options at ASU. The option I usually use is the lightrail. The cost is also very reasonablel. Paying $150 for the whole academic year, including lightrail usage, and city bus usage, unlimited of course. And, the lightrail takes you right into the campus, which is very convenient. There are also city buses that take you to the school, as well as Orbit buses. We have parking lots at ASU, however the cost may be a bit too high for some who can't afford that. Although, most students take bikes, use longboards, or walk.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: This school has alot of diversity. You'll see all kinds of racial groups. From Asians, to Hispanics, and Whites to those from the Middleast. They all bring their uniqeness to this great school, ASU.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Arizona State University has alot to offer. Being in the city of Tempe, you'll find lots to do. We have the "A" mountain right in front and you can hike it all the way to the top and look into the city. On the other side, you can see Tempe Town Lake, and at night, may I say, that is a beautiful sight!On Mill Ave, you'll find local stores, and boutiques, as well as restaurants, all located next to the university. This is a great place to be, trust me, you'll never get bored.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Opportunity for Fun! ASU Tempe campus is right in the center of other huge cities which have tons of activites to immerse yourself into. There are professional sports stadiums, museums, cultral centers, special event centers such as play houses and clubs.

Scholarships: Stressful but Possible – Hard to find right types of aid, but when seeking help from financial aid office can make it possible.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football and Softball – Two teams that bring a lot of recognition and are very much supported by the student body.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Decent, but Typical – Most days they offer decent food, but usually the same things everyday. Sometimes students can get tired if eating the same thing everyday.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: GOOOO DEVILS!!! You can't get more school spirit than the SUN DEVILS!!! The school invests a lot of money into athletics and we have amazing teams. I am not a big sports fan, but I always make it out to a few games a year, just because it is so much fun. While our football can sometimes be frustrating for fans, we have tons of other teams that really represent us well.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Plenty of Bros – There are 72,250 students at ASU... so you are bound to find someone you like. I personally don't like the super-tan, bleach blonde, and over-done make-up... but if that's your thing, you are going to love it. There are plenty of bros as well. I would say that is the predominate style. However, there are plenty of other looks around ASU... including a healthy ginger population!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live at Center Complex at Best C. Best C is the hub for the whole complex. We have a computer lab that has dual screens for windows and 27" Macs. This complex has buildings that have community bathrooms. They're sometimes nasty but there's a cleaning staff. Center complex is isolated from everyone. It's located on the SouthWest corner of the campus. It's basically near everywhere especially the MU which is the hub at ASU. MU does close early though and the dining hall over there. People that live here needs to go to farther dining halls and restaurants late at night. There's other dorms at the North Campus Dorms which has PV and san pablo and hassy/barret/sonora/vista in the southeast area.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's How You Want It – Mill avenue is the only place you could go to in a walking distance but it's mostly for people 21 and above. You can catch the bus to go to AZ Mills, Tempe Market Place and/or to downtown Phoenix. Everything is in walking distance but should invest in a bike or start to learn how to ride a longboard. As for social life, there is not much to do around unless you're 21 and above.

5 College Freshman

Weather: Always Feels Like Summer – Every day in Arizona, it always feels like summer because it hardly ever rains nor snows. In July/August, we have sandstorms (called haboobs) whenever it gets really windy and either 80-100 degrees. When I first came here, I had to keep myself cool by drinking a lot of water and staying in a cool classroom.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to ASU Poly because it has a Special Education program at the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. The campus is fantastic, and most of the professors I have had have been close to amazing. They are available to answer questions and give you extra help with course work. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes and makes it worth going to class. Most of the classes I attend are hybrid, meaning that they are both online and in class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshmen and Upperclassmen Dorms – The freshman dorms at ASU Poly are great for both ASU and Mesa-Gilbert Community College students. There are different dorms at Poly: Eagle, Mustang, Falcon, Talon, Phantom, and Palo Blanco (which is one of the upperclassmen houses) I'm currently staying at Eagle Hall and later this fall I'll be moving to Mustang Hall because all of the MGCC students will be moving in. We will have a new dorm hall opening this summer.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – I have never felt unsafe on ASU Poly's campus. It is a small, safe place to be with friends. Every night, my roommates and I keep our doors locked to avoid theft and pranks. Our Campus Security would always patrol around our dorms in their cars to make sure we are safe.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Just Don't Bring a Car – Don't bring a car unless it's necessary. If you are out of state bring it, the city is really spread out so getting anywhere is impossible. If you are in-state, find a way to keep your car somewhere not on campus because it'll cost you an arm and a leg. Not mention even if you pay the price for parking, you are not garenteed a spot and there are not even spots. Overall, parking sucks!

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You'll see parties get busted by police and many students get MIC's but it's not a huge deal. I haven't heard of anyone getting in trouble for anything here. But it depends on which school your major falls under, some deans are more strict than others

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is very little greek life but if you want to get involved in it there are plenty of great opportunities. It is not necessary to meet friends at all.

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!
