Overall Experience: Research Is Great – The best experience that I have had at ASU was joining a lab and conducting research. The science aspect at ASU is not bad. There are plenty of opportunities to do great things. There are parties as well which makes studying non-stop more bearable.

2 College Junior

Computers: Always Crowded When You Need It the Most – The computer commons at ASU are always busy. There are many different places on campus where you can go to use computers, but they always seem to be busy. Due to the high student overflow of ASU, finding that one computer that has not been claimed by anyone, a rarity, is often a pain.

4 College Junior

Academics: Never Letting It Be Easy – I went to Arizona State University due to it offering me scholarship money. The professors are nice, and they strive to make the class difficult but also rewarding. So far I have not had a professor who caters to students' desire to curve a class.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm a Global Studies major at Arizona State University. There are a billion opportunities at this college to get ahead. You can do research with a professor or get an on-campus job. There are over 700 clubs to get involved with and lots of sporting events to show your school pride. Whatever it is you want, you can find it here at ASU.

Local Atmosphere: So Much to Do! With campuses strategically placed all over Phoenix, you are never far from something amazing! There is always a film festival, carnival, concert or game going on, along with fabulous malls all over the city...this is the best place to go to school ever!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The Professors at ASU are amazing! Their knowledge appears never ending and covers far more than just the subject that they teach. The curriculum is very diverse from what you might see at other schools, and though the workload is at times challenging, it is never more than can be handled.

Academics: they have some of the nices facilities and internships are great and easy to come by

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The Light Rail is the greatest thing brought to Tempe. Students at ASU who live off campus can park at any Park-And-Ride for free and take the Light Rail all day long. It comes every 10-12 minutes, so the wait is virtually non-existant. There are also buses and the transportation bus called the Orbit as well. The U-Pass, which allows students unlimited access to all transportation for a whole year costs only $150 a year. Which definitely beats the $800 per semester on-campus parking spots.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I chose ASU knowing it's reputation as one of the biggest party schools on campus. And as it turns out, it is pretty prominent. From what I've noticed, drug usage is not as important to students as alcohol is. ASU is a dry campus, and it is strongly enforced on campus. So off campus is where a lot of the alcohol usage occurs.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: At ASU, the academics differ between the different areas of study. From what I know from being in W.P. Carey, the professors are great and the workload depends on what class you're taking. A typical lecture class can consist of around 400 students, so it can be hard for class discussion. But professors are usually pretty great about answering questions and helping one-on-one. There are so many resources for success and many great places where students can sit on there own and study in peace.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are HUGE at ASU. Sun Devil spirit at football games are insane. When a team is doing well, the support is overwhelming. However, certain teams that aren't good don't generate much school spirit and people tend to forget about them. Kind of unbalanced.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Personally I haven't encountered any problems on campus, nor have I seen any happening to others around me. Police are readily available, and in general the student body seems to be non-problematic.

4 College Junior

Academics: Speech and Hearing Science – I'm in the Speech and Hearing Science program at ASU, and the professors are all very understanding and helpful when it comes to class material. There are also a lot of opportunities for extra exposure to the field, since there is a fully functioning clinic on campus, and ASU also has a graduate program.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: No Really, I Do This Blogging Thing – Feel free to show these to people on your website:

Off-Campus Housing: I Write Blogs – And this one says it all:

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The Cronkite School – I am there for a reason. I came to ASU to go to the Cronkite School to learn how to be a journalist, and I have not been disappointed. It's an absolutely fantastic school that really knows its stuff.

Campus Strictness: When It Comes to Harrassment – Although it is a public campus ASU should consider setting out rules of how none students should behave manly, many religious organizations that come in insulting students, with disrespectful words and insults.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Great Food – There are many choices for all types of diets at ASU, and when you do not want school food, which is great all it self, there is a verity of restaurants to choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Human Social Behavor – Many of these topics are very interesting, and the teachers communicate in a level both understanding and interesting, to maintain total attention.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Easy to Chose – There are every types of people one can think of. Large group of fashion enthusiasts.

Diversity: Variety of Cultures – At ASU one is able to meet people from different countries in every single class one takes. They have an amazing amount of programs that allow for foreign exchange interaction and networking with the locals.

4 College Junior

Academics: Awesome Engineering – There are various campuses that offer different variations of the engineering program. There is one campus that allows the students a technical approach and on at a more hands-on approach. It is absolutely the best program I could have enrolled in; the professors are more than qualified and the student to teacher ratio allows a better interaction with the teacher which in turn leads to a better grade.

College Freshman

Academics: My Major Sociology – I have not started my freshmen year. It begins August 18th, so I have no words to dicuss the unique aspects of the program.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms Are Better Than What I Thought. Housing at ASU is better than what I thought. I technically don't live at the campus yet (not until the Fall term starts) but I have physically seen the dorms for myself at a tour I have participated in last summer. The dorms are bigger than what I thought also. The residence hall that I am staying in, which is San Pablo, doesn't have community bathrooms, but shares a bathroom with every two rooms (two rooms have to share the same bathroom). This is really good, but I heard the other halls have to share a community bathroom, which is not so good.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Very Good – The facilities on the ASU campus are very entertaining, but I am limited because of my personal beliefs. For example, I am a vegan, but ASU doesn't offer many vegan/vegitarian options. It is a very social college with many facilities suite for the stereotypical Sun-Devil.

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!
