2 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports Are Great – The football team is the best yet first of all. The students can get involved with any sports team and actually feel friendship.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Why Pay More? There are man y apartment varieties in Arizona. They're everywhere, even walking distance from the University. I would advise anyone to get themselves an apartment because it will actually be theirs , wont have to share with roommates, and are more cheap then living in the dorms.

Guys & Girls: Beautiful People – There is an unusually large amount of good-looking guys and girls here. Lots of tan fit people with pretty faces, but you see all kinds here. There are definitely plenty of options.

Campus Dining: Okay Food Options – There are a few options for food on the ASU campus. Devil's Diner is kind of crappy and only convenient for the one dorm next to it, but its also the only dining option past 8 or 9 at night. (It's 24 hr.) The MU (Memorial Union Building) has the greatest range of food options, (all the fastfood, jambajuice, etc.) but only Pitchforks is on mealplan, (Its the main dining hall on campus.) The food is very crappy but doable if not eaten too often. The best food on campus is in the Barrett Honor College dinging hall. Its really good but costs extra for those not on it's expensive mealplan.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Process Is Slow but Reliable – I have gotten a lot of supportive financial aid from ASU and I have been able to rely on my financial aid here. It comes slow but I am able to have enough from my last semester to pay on time and still be able to have enough for books and tuition.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not Too Bad – I have definitely seen drinking on campus but I do not personally participate so I have not seen much. I have heard about it and heard about some drugs. But not much has actually been witnessed by me and I have not sought out any of these activities.

Greek Life: Not Very Impressive – I have not felt the need to join one because I feel it is not as important as my major or my peers. I feel I have no time for this and therefore know nothing about it.

Overall Experience: The Freshman Experience – I am in my freshman year at ASU and so far have had a pretty good experience. There has been a bit of a transitional period being on my own and getting used to the college scene, but the counselors and staff do their best to make it an easy adjustment.

Diversity: A Very Diverse Campus. ASU has a very diverse campus. There are people of all races, challenges, and sexual orientation. I haven't found the diversity to be an issue. I have found that most people embrace the diversity.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Beautiful Campus With Many Opportunities – Arizona State University has a vast variety of facilities and campus activities. There is something for everyone on this campus and always a way to get involved or a place to hang out. From the rec center to the library, ASU has created a place where students feel welcome and are able to make the most of their time on this campus.

Overall Experience: Arizona State University is a great school with a lot of school spirit. ASU really knows how to have a good time. I would choose to go here becuase the atmosphere is lively and everyone is really friendly. Once a Sun Devil, always a Sun Devil.

Greek Life: The greek system at ASU is unlike any other greek system nation wide. There aren't any houses/greek row. The greek system is connected through events and parties that are usually planned ahead of time. The greek system, alike any other college, is a great way to meet new people and expand your horizons.

Campus Housing: Life in Barrett – Living on campus at Arizona State University really allows students to become more involved with the school. Living preferences all really depend on the type of student you are. If you're all about hardcore studying Barrett honors college is a great option, if you're more laid back with a little extra free time between classes offcampus appts are the best way to go. As far as cost goes, truthfully, the more you pay the better the experience, atmosphere, and food will be. Becoming accustomed to on campus living is very exciting and a great way to meet people and most of all find out your interests and dislikes.

Transportation: The transportation is kind of cool. You just call and they pick you up.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: People all drink and smoke weed. You know it and you see it but most don't cause too much trouble. The people in charge never find out. It's easy to hide at least alcohol in your room.

Greek Life: There not really part of the school life. You know there's parties but if your not a party person you don't pay attention to the greek life.

Local Atmosphere: Lots to Do, but Really Spread Out – Tempe is a place of many people and surrounded by a variety of things to do. From hiking, to shopping, to a Suns game the options are endless. However, most of these activities require a car, which then limits activities to on campus, or a short bike ride away.

Academics: Small Class Sizes – Since I am in a design major, most of my classes have been around 18-20 kids, which has its advantages. The professors care more about your well-being and pay close attention to your work giving constructive feedback. For two larger sized classes I had, the teachers were always available and accessible through email or during office hours.

Guys & Girls: Mixed Like a Blender – Arizona State is as it says, one of the most diverse college campuses in the United States. You rarely, if ever, run into the same people day to day. Collectively the guys are either the stereotype nerd and the others are gym guys-they love building their muscles. The girls meanwhile are book nerds on one hand, or the party scene type.

Transportation: Shuttles Are Almost the Only Option – Unless you have a car, university shuttles between the campuses are almost the only option. Public transportation in the phoenix area is very poor due to the fact that the city layout is so spread out. A car is a very good investment if you are at any of the campuses other than the main one in Tempe.

Majors: Being that I am only in my freshman year I am still getting a feel for the University and everything it has to offer but I love ASU. I've met so many great people here and the school has so many different programs, that differ from FREE tutoring to a writing center and a rec center. For exploratory majors they really expose you to everything ASU has to offer and what different career paths to choose.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is the only major sport. The campus always sets up pre-game BBQ's for the the students that are pretty fun. Games are always so fun. You always meet new people considering that half of the student section is drunk and looking to have fun. The school also has a pretty nice, and pretty large, recreation center that has almost everything that you would expect to find at a gym and some.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi at the school is great inside the classrooms but in some areas of the dorm it's impossible to get wifi and people will often have to go out in the hallway or in the lounge to pick up signal. I only get signal in half of my room. But there are labs everywhere. The only thing is they monitor internet usage so absolutely NO illegal downloading.

5 College Student

Majors: Huge School – I went to a small undergraduate art school but you could take a class in any art/design or performance field as an elective- and it counted. At ASU you do not get it counted if it is not part of your degree but you do have access to all the presentations/performances and public lectures

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!
