5 College Junior

Computers: Always a Breeze – In all of my experiences everything has been very easy to use and there are all the resources I need available. Whenever any issues arose, there was always helpful staff available to resolve my problem.

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: Not That Great – Nothing special at ASU, just your everyday college.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Good but Pricey – There are a lot of options for food, a lot fo restaurants, stores, coffee shops, diners, smoothies, bagels, frozen yogurt, etc. But eating too much of it can be pretty expensive. Same goes to for meal plans - the barret food is wonderful, but the most expensive.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. It's a big school - but that's part of why you can trust it so much. The police are friendly, and watch out for you. You can get rides from security if you need it. There are plenty of these weird blue lights you can run to in emergencies. And you know that no one can jump out at you in such a crowded place. If you leave something like a phone or a bike unsupervised, then yeah its going to get stolen. That happens anywhere. And dont leave your bike unlocked or overnight. But aside from that, everything seems fine to me.

Diversity: Lots of Variety – There is a vast amount of diversity on campus at Arizona State University.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Good quality, good choices, healthy choices, eat there everyday

4 College Junior

Weather: During the winter the weather is absolutely awesome, around 60 or 70. The fall and spring are also wonderful, around 80 or 90. Once the summer comes though, it can be a slightly unbearable walking to class because it can reach up to 120. It maybe rains once or twice a semester.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not Really Big – There is a relatively small drug scene, and drinking is definitely more popular. Sometimes you'll meet people who smoke marijuana, but much less people do cocaine, lsd, or pills, and there is no occurrence that I have encountered with Meth or Heroine.

Transportation: many students take the lightrail even though prices went up

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options for off campus housing that are affordable.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse Campus – I'd say our campus at ASU is quite diverse. There are many different races. All religions, political beliefs, and sexual orientations are accepted. Diversity is celebrated.

4 College Junior

Computers: The computer lab has plenty of computers and they are all in great condition. Printing is easy, and the network is usually pretty reliable and has an okay speed. Bringing your own computer isn'tbreally necessary.

2 College Junior

Computers: Printing on Campus – It's pretty annoying that I have to have sundollars to print one sheet of paper.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Fun Atmosphere – There is always something going on on-campus, there can be music going on and clubs and different classes doing activities outside that peak the interest of visiting people and other students walking to class. there is never a dull day at ASU

Greek Life: I've No Idea – not much as for a presence on campus. They are here, but it's not a prominent part of the school.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Mill Ave – If you go out, go to Mill. It's right next to campus with good diversity of attractions, unless you've a car and are loaded, in which case go to Scottsdale.

Campus Housing: It's What You'd Expect – Some of the rooms are large, some are small. It really depends where you are, If you are smart enough to get into Barrett honors college, then live on campus. if not, look elsewhere.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug and Alchol – Drugs are not very common at ASU, you would have to be with a really bad crowed to even realize that there are drugs anywhere near campus. Drinking is more common because most of the student body is older and find more interest in going to the bars near campus.

Diversity: There are many students of all different race and religions at ASU, in the past i have been used to seeing mainly only white individuals but attending ASU I am astounded by the diversity of the student body at ASU and feel very comfortable with the atmosphere.

Campus Dining: Food Service – I don't technically eat at school rather back at home or bring my own lunch. It's expensive to buy lunch at school, unless I'm starving I'll get something at taco bell or a smoothie at Starbucks.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Okay but Could Be Better – Financial aid is substantial at ASU, but it would be nice if they increased their merit scholarships as they increased the tuition. Many students who received a merit scholarship no longer have a free ride since tuition hikes have increased past the President's Scholarship.

Diversity: There is a multitude of races and individuals on campus. You will see many different traditions and cultures as evidenced by the numerous organizations and people itself.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Everyone has different experiences and different vices. Here, the policy of moderation is enforced by most students and drugs and alcohol usually do not affect academics. There is a selection of drugs, but most would agree it is just an experience and not life changing. What is peer pressure? The police are hard if they catch you.

Facilities: The Libraries Are Awesome – The libraries on campus are always open and quiet. There are selected floors where talking is discouraged and that term paper can be hashed out in silence. There are books on reserve for selected classes and this service cuts down on book expenses in the long run.

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!
