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.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Great Arizona Place – Arizona State University is a huge school (over 50,000 students just on the Tempe campus alone). So that means, most likely, if there are a lot of students, then there should be a lot of academic choices at the school. I originally came to ASU as a Music major, but changed to Philosophy due to personal reasons. There is so much diversity within the student body and within the school's academic seletions.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Parking in the Dessert – Attending a University can be expensive already, but to also pay a yearly or semester fee to park in the parking lot is simply ludacris. The fee is well over a hundred dollars and seems to increase on a yearly basis. This can affect us; the students becasue many of us struggle to pay for tuition and to have to pay to park is out of our reach. Sometime the only option can be to car pool or take the bus, but at the same time taking the bus can be time consuming and has a lot of downfalls to it as well.

3 College Senior

Academics: Analyze This – During the school days people will ask me what my major is. When I inform them that I am a Psychology major they instantly ask if I am analyzing them. While most students believe that Psychology majors analyze everything, for the most part it is not true. The classes are interesting and time consuming in reading the material and inderstanding the lecture, with everything that is involved in learing and reviewing for such classes it is none the less a good program that allows you to get ahead in your career.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a member of Barrett, the Honors College and academics are a top priority to every one of its members. We meet with advisors at least once a semester to make sure we are on track and to make sure we are doing everything we can to maximize our academic opportunities. Professors are very personable. I meet with each one of my professors whenever I need to they are more than willing to help with whatever questions I may have.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Orbit Is Great...Sometimes – The Orbit is great because it is free, but they are only worth using when they get you to your destination in a reasonable time. There are some routes that I could walk through quicker! And there is usually some sketchy druggies or drunks around...always take a buddy!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Always Secure – On campus I generally feel safe and secure. Living on a huge campus in a huge city can be intimidating, especially when walking home from the library late at night. Thankfully there is always a police officer or security guard around.

4 College Junior

Academics: SHS Department Is It's Own Community – I'm enrolled in the bachelor of science Speech and Hearing Science program and I LOVE it. It's smaller major so you often take classes with the same students and professors multiple times. All of the professors are knowledgeable in their area of expertise and they are always willing to help their students with anything. I see other SHS students outside of class all the time, and we are always excited to say hi and stop and chat with one another. It's such a great community to be a part of!

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Free Ride – I was lucky enough to receive a full ride to ASU, so I am very satisfied with the financial aid. My tip would be to work very hard in high school because ASU gives scholarships based on merits.

4 College Senior

Academics: Professors Want Students to Succeed – I've always been happy with the teachers in my area of study, They are available outside the classroom for additional help and really want their students to succeed.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Good Spirit – School spirit is very much a part of ASU. The stadium is always packed at home games. I do think spirit would increase if the football team improved. Other teams, like baseball and softball are exceptional, but no one pays enough attention to them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I Wouldn't Trade the Experiences! I'm not going to share them, but I have to tell you, you will be grabbed into college life and you'll never want to let go.

3 College Junior

Weather: The Beginning of the school year and end are hot! However, Fall and Winter is a beautiful time.

3 College Junior

Academics: The Microbiology major requires the utmost time for study like many of the sciences. However, you are not alone, recently started Microbiology group here at ASU has aided the field of study to study subjects and interact with real world workers and assemblies. The program is wonderful. However, if you want a lab job, you have to earn it and find it yourself at the school- they are not just handed out.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Industrial Design Program Is Great – Although I have read many bad reviews about the lack of good professors on campus, the industrial design part of ASU is great!! Unlike many of the schools that require portfolios before entering freshman year, I was automatically given a chance to show them what kind of a student I can be within the first couple years. It has a great program! One of the top ten schools for Industrial Design in the nation.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking permits are extremely expensive. Not only are they expensive, there are too many to remember where you can park with certain permits. However, there is a light rail that goes right by the Tempe campus, which ASU provides coupons for the year pass.

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!
