4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are MANY options on and off campus that accept M&G Dollars, ASU's digital currency, also, there are multiple places on campus with different varieties of food in a buffet style that accept meal passes. There are different priced meal plans with different amounts and ratios of Meal Passes and M&G dollars

Academics: While the academics at ASU are not bad, and the staff members are mostly helpful, the administration seems not to care at all about the well-being of its students. It is not a good feeling and the reason for my transfer.

Drug Safety: Very Dry Campus – ASU is a dry campus. No alcohol is allowed at all and the cops are always ready to hand out MICs around campus. Drugs are not very big on campus.

Diversity: Very Diverse All Around – ASU is a very diverse community and everyone is accepted. Anyone can come to ASU and fit right in in my opinion. The people on campus are always open and easy to talk to.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Apartment Options – There are a lot of options around campus and they all have very similar prices. Most are kind of expensive and others are just average.

Parking: Parking is outragious on campus. It is extremely expensive and space is limited. Luckily for students who live in Tempe, there is plenty of public transportation. Tempe is very commuter friendly.

Campus Strictness: Arizona is planning on cutting back the scholarship money offered to students. Huge mistake on their part since they are also cracking down on students for drinking. They are not prestiage enough to turn away so many possible students.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Party School – Sports are a big part of campus life along with partys. ASU is attempting to change the party school image. There are plenty of shops and things to do in or around campus. It is very much a college town. Academically it has certain programs that are exceptional and others that are given less priority and shadowed.

Facilities: There are many facilities like a student center, a writing center to help students with essays and resumes. There are gyms on some floors and a full dining hall for eating, as well as a den for students to hangout. Overall the facilities here are very good.

Academics: Classes Really Help With My Future – I am in the Exercise and Wellness major and the education I have been getting is very beneficial to what I want to do after college.

Campus Strictness: It's Not Bad – There are a lot of policies, but the overall strictness is moderate. Enforcement isn't regular, but there is enough of it to feel safe.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The campus has a large base of students from other countries/ethnicities. Being in Arizona, we have a lot of hispanic students, and it is largely accepted from the student body as a whole.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of Options – There are a lot of options to live off campus. I dig that.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: No Need for a Vehicle – If you have a car, don't bring it. Almost anything you might need in the state of Arizona alone is reachable without one. Tempe pretty much has everything, and sometimes you might need a bike to get around quicker. If you're into the city life, the lightrail takes you to the Downtown campus and other places Downtown Phoenix offers like Suns and Diamondbacks games.

Diversity: Very Diverse, but Sometimes Too Much – With ASU being the largest university in America, of course it's diverse. You'll find almost any types of people in just the Tempe campus alone- races, where people are from, etc. That being said, sometimes it gets out of hand when it comes to ideas. A lot of times (especially near the Memorial Union), you'll get many types of support groups soliciting on the pathway asking to join a cause, and it gets really annoying quickly.

Campus Dining: Dining Hall – At first you'll go crazy after eating in one of the dining halls, but you will get tired quickly. Pitchforks at the MU seems to serve the same food over and over again and the soda and ice cream machines break easily. Be warned, this can easily get you on the Freshman 15+

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are so many opportunities at ASU. There are four campus's located in Arizona and each one is different in their own way. There are so many degree's and programs that are offered unlike other schools. Everyone I talk to loves it here, and they always have stories to tell about what adventures they went on that weekend. There sport's teams are always active and popular, along with the professional ones around the area.

Weather: Shivering? or Sweating? My choice would be sweating. I recently came from a campus with snow. I must say it is so much more enjoyable to be able to walk to class without my head ducked and my whole body layered with clothes. Arizona does get very hot, but it only stays hot for about 3 out of the 9 months we attend school. It effects us because of how uncomfortable you get, but the campus is pretty well shaded so it isn't that horrible.

Facilities: Life in the Desert – The campus is awesome! I recently transferred here because my other school didn't have the college atmosphere like Arizona State does. The buildings are all very unique, one of my classes is even located by an indoor garden. The walkways are big and shaded by beautiful palm trees. The library is always a great place to study, you enter underground, which is pretty interesting. My roommates are constantly at the gym and I think it's great how huge the campus is, even if I occasionally get lost.

Majors: Can Be Difficult – I amin the WP Carey school of business and was accepted into their ba degree programs from the beginning however to get into the Bs degree programs it's a little harder. My only issue was that I hadto retake my act test to get the score I needed. That was my only obsticale however other people have had a much harder time with it, but it's worth it

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Fairly Laid Back – For the most part ASU is just like any other school. Underage drinking happens all the time but most students get caught at least one. Drugs happen also but there much stricter on that. They are however extremely strict with the honor code, especially in the WP Carey school of business which is good becasue it ensures our validity as students.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The Melting Pot – ASU is a very diverse campus. There are people not just around the United States but around the world. It allows for you to experience differet people and learn to appreciate peoples differences but it is sometimes hard to understand and act appropriately around different people.

Off-Campus Housing: Living close to ASU can cost as much as living on campus. The farther you get the less you'll spend, but there's no way I could live anywhere near here without roommates.

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!
