4 College Student

Overall Experience: Amazing Experience! Being here at ASU gave me a chance to meet new people, expand my horizons, and explore a new city! I wouldn't trade my memories for the world!

Facilities: Campus Activities – There are always things to do on campus! You'll never be bored!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Nice campus, almost like it's own little city, plenty of dorms and off-campus apartment housing available, few miles from mall, free stuff everywhere, parties and concerts nearby all the time.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is not bad at the west campus. You can easily find a parking spot.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking Is More Popular – The drug scene is not really a problem its more liquor.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: No Body Really Talks to Each Other – The guys and girls here on the west campus do not really interact with one another.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, the experience I have had at this university has been enjoyable. I participate in a club that relates to my end career goal in becoming a Physician Assistant and have had many fun opportunities participating in events with the members. I did not live on campus at all and I would have liked to be able to do that. Nightlife on the popular Mill Ave is always fun and full of college aged people that you can relate with. I would definitely chose ASU if I had to do it all over, however, I would chose to be more involved in the over all campus scene.

Transportation: The Flash is an easy way to get to opposite areas on campus. It travels around campus however if you're in a hurry it is usually better to just walk. The only aspect I dislike is how some of the drivers navigate. Frequently, passengers are "tossed" around from sharp turns and abrupt stops.

Health & Safety: Campus Crime – Recently, there have been a few sightings of persons with a gun on/around campus, which was startling. However, campus police have increased safety measures in attempt to keep students as safe as possible.

Scholarships: I am international student, so hard add financial aid.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Dining Options – I Always cook in my apartment, but I think the off-campus dining id convenience.There are so many kind of restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining Options – I Always cook in my apartment, but I think the off-campus dining id convenience.There are so many kind of restaurants.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: It Is Rediculous – I got a small amount of financial aid and the school did little to help me out. My parents are both out of work and I am supporting myself and the school hardly of use in helping me out. If you want help, go to the faculty.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: CA's Really Suck – If you live in the dorms, don't expect to have too much fun. The CA's make excuses to come in and check on the floors, claiming false "noise complaints" and they barge into rooms without asking. Half the time no one is even doing anything bad!

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Alright – There are all types of girls out here, from hipster to sorority princess; and it makes it pretty easy for a girl to find a clique to click with. The guys seem to be a little less diverse, as the male population seems to be made up of mostly frat guys. While they're nice to look at, they aren't anything to hold a conversation with.

Campus Strictness: ASU is a very fun school, you'll have a good time but by doing so you will get caught. Went to a party tonight where cops guarded the door giving everyone MIC's when they left. Do they really have nothing better to do than write students $500 tickets for drinking? I mean reallly!?, we're in college. Coming from New York, I have never heard of an MIC. You could be blacked out but as long as you aren't causing a disturbance there is no issue. At ASU, its a whole other story, if you have had 2 beers and hour ago and are completely sober, Tempe and ASU police would love nothing more than to ruin your night and write you ridiculous tickets. I did love going to school here but this needs to end. If you want to have a good time in college, go to UCSB or somewhere where cops actually arrest criminals, not barely intoxicated college students.

4 College Student

Scholarships: As long as your application is in on time, you're qualified for a scholarship. On the strength of my academics alone I was granted enough scholarship money to make my out-of-state tuition equal in-state. However, there are strict qualifiers to keeping it (30 credit hours per year and a minimum GPA).

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Regarding Hassayampa – Speaking only about my dorm, Hassayampa, I'd say it's overpriced and doesn't have much of a community feeling like McClintock has. But it is newer and the rooms are huge.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – There's cops on bikes and Segways on campus probably at all times, and there's plenty of well-marked police posts. You can also sign up to get text alerts from the university about safety concerns. In all, I'd say I feel completely safe here.

Scholarships: Counselors as well as professors are always providing resources for students on how to apply for financial assistance. My Frosh year I was fortunate to have assistance from friendly workers at the Financial office whom helped me fill out all necessary forms to keep current with financial awards and scholarships.

Weather: For those students who are not used to Arizona, dry desert weather will have a bit of a shock. Summers in AZ are extremely hot. Normally, students and Arizona residents in general prefer to go out in the afternoon. However, ASU has activities that involve staying cool. At times they give free ice cream, free water or they hold functions that involve water games.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is known for being home to the ASU sun devils. Everyday there is something to do on campus. Having had the opportunity to live on campus my Frosh year, there are many extra curricular activities that ASU clubs and groups hold to motivate students, relieve stress and promote social networks. There are movie theaters, food restaurants and shopping malls close by. This makes it easier for out of state students whom are not familiar with Tempe, let alone the state of Arizona. Personally, I would have to say that the Sorority's and Fraternities on campus are mainly multicultural. Cultural events are prominent on campus yet they hold functions not only for member of their society but also all ASU students. I am a proud sun devil and I hope in two years to become an alumni if financial assistance is provided.

Athletics: Sports Are Awesome – Varsity sports are pretty important at ASU, there's always a promotion event going on for the men's sports. Sometimes though I feel that the women's sports aren't promoted enough. Student fan support is always great even though our teams are not the greatest, but we usually fill the student section. Intramural sports are also big. The training and workout facilities here are great, and I believe there is an expansion scheduled for the Student Recreation Center soon. I can't wait to see how that turns out.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safe and Sound – Personally, I haven't felt unsafe on campus. Maybe at night it's a little creepy, but there are plenty of well lit areas and emergency alert stations so I'm never afraid. Campus police can always be seen patrolling, and if there is ever a big security issue ASU has a service that both emails and sends you a text message to update you on the situation. There have been some crimes just off campus, but that's going to happen in any major city.

Local Atmosphere: Up-Tempo Tempe – Tempe is a vibrant atmosphere, especially right around campus. Mill Avenue is right on the edge of campus, and is always bustling with activity as it houses many restaurants and small shops. To do any serious shopping, Tempe Marketplace is maybe a 10 minute car ride away, and has many stores and almost 30 different restaurants. The local attitude toward students is good, because we provide a lot of business during the year.

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!
