3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Party Scene – ASU has a large party scene, however the only drug that is consistently used is pot. Drinking is much more abundant.

4 College Junior

Weather: Very Beautiful – Arizona weather is beautiful it is always nice out and the heat is wonderful. As long as you stay hydrated there is no worry.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Plain Jane – Nothing too special about ASU. Having multiple campuses around the city is cool and the classes are much smaller at West and Downtown so its easier to get to know people

Parking: Be Prepared to Sign Over Your First Born and Your Right Arm – Parking is a nightmare, so expensive, takes 20 mins or more to get to class from lot. Take public transit if possible

Parking: Expensive, Save Your Gas – The parking permits at Arizona State University are very expensive depending how far you plan on walking to your classes. Then is a lot of pedestrian and bike traffic, so it makes driving a bit difficult. While the best alternative mode of transportation is the Metro Light Rail, that runs very close to the campus. Unfortunately biking is a poor choice of transportation, because of the high bicycle theft rate.

3 College Student

Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of demographics regarding dining surrounding the Arizona State University campus. As many of the restaurants are in close walking distance, or the use of a light rail as transportation. While the campus holds a decent dining hall, similar to a food court at a shopping mall.

4 College Student

Nightlife: Mill Ave More Like Las Vegas Strip – Technically Arizona State University is a dry and drug free campus, but the majority of the young student body is involved in the wild social scene. However there are many legal alternatives of recreation, such as visiting Tempe Town Lake, or hiking; since the campus is in close distance to several hiking trails. The nightlife depends on a persons personal preference of interest, because Tempe is in a major city, Phoenix.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Animal House – Greek Life is the bonding between a community of college students whom enjoy a life of debauchery and minimal studies at Arizona State Univeristy. The benefits of being involved in Greek Life organizations include Alumni connections in the career world, brotherhood in your Greek Family, and a place to live; as Greek Life have their own homes to live on campus and attend your classes. However the Greek organizations are associated with being party animals and having reckless behavior.

Scholarships: EASY PEASEY LEMON SQUEEZY – When I first applied at ASU I was late enrolling and registering . I was really late filing my fafsa but the financial aid advisers were really helpful and quick at getting the ball rolling. I thought the financial aid process was going to be really difficult but man did they prove me wrong.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: It's All About MILL – Mill Ave at ASU is great for that party animal in you. There are even a lot of activities and places for students to party who are under 21. Mill has all the clubs all lined up perfectly ready for you to just go right in and unleash that party animal in you.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Great Fun in the Hot Hot Sun. There is so much to do here in Phoenix AZ. It's very relaxed and laid back because well who wants to fight in this intense heat. There's water parks, skyparks,great arcades and bowling alleys for that kid inside. There's tons of hiking trails, parks, a great zoo, and even an environmental revival center to satisfy that inner tree hugger.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Beautiful Women and Hot GUYS! With ASU being one of the largest universities in the United States, there are plenty of people to choose from. A lot of the girls are tan and tall, and have awesome hair. Most of the guys are very fit and into sports and the campus life. Mostly all people on campus are friendly too, and there are always new opportunities to meet new people.

5 College Junior

Transportation: Light Rail With a Bike – Light rail is the best option to me. With so many people on campus and parking passes becoming more and more expensive. If you get a light rail pass its a lot cheaper than a parking pass. Not only this but you can take your bike on with you. Once you arrive a t campus its much faster to get around the huge campus by bike. Not only is it quick, but great exercise as well!

4 College Freshman

Majors: Pretty Simple – When you apply to Arizona State University, you declare a temporary major. If you declare Nursing as your major, your entire ASU application is directed to the Nursing college, no extra application necessary.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Mill Avenue – Mill is the only kind of nightlife there is around ASU. There are a bunch of bar and clubs around there. Most of the people though are loud and obnoxious. I am not quite sure about underage nightlife.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of Places to Eat – Tempe is a large city, pretty much any restaurant you could want exists there.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Didn't get much financial aid, but didn't have to work hard to get what i got

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Busy Life – Tempe is a decent size city that offers an amazing night life. There are dance clubs, a variety of food places and bars with a diverse crowd. Right by the ASU Tempe campus, there is a convenient light-rail that runs from Phoenix all the way to Mesa. Another nice enjoyment is the science and arts centers.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The students here at ASU are very interested their sports teams, especially during football and men's basketball seasons.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Decently Diverse – For the most part ASU is a diverse school. ASU has African Americans, Asians, Persians, and Whites. Not to exclude any other groups but ASU does a great job in being a diverse college.

Health & Safety: Couldn't Be Better!! I haven't personally had to go through the health department but my friends have and have had nothing to say but good things about it. As far as safety goes, ASU is a very safe school and ASU provides all of the necessary tools to allow there students to be safe.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health Is Great! ASU's health programs really bring this grade to an A+ because they show how much this school cares about your well being. There is a building just for it that also has all medications you need during any small or large sickness.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The Area Is Amazing – Tempe is close to all major places in the Phoenix area, but with that said, there are also many places you should stay away from. The nightlife is great and so are all things nearby. You just need to be aware of your surroundings as you would any other place.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Very Good School – The classes are tough, but are very up to date. I'm in a nursing research class right now and am learning a lot!

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!
