2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have yet to receive any money. They say my parents make too much. But they don't help me with school at all. I pay for everything on my own, so I think that is unfair. But speaking with a financial aid officer will help a lot. They can help with any questions you may have and provide websites for scholarships.

Greek Life: Greek life at ASU is a lot of fun. I have a lot of friends in sororities and frats. There are a lot of formals and functions.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Students who are 21 and older have a huge variety of things to do at night. Bars, clubs, house parties. Bar and clubs on Mill Ave and in Old Town Scottsdale are the most popular. Transportation is nice. There is the light rail, that will take you basically anywhere in tempe. And cabs usually aren't too busy so they only take about a half an hour to get to you. Nightlife for underage students on the other hand is a little more difficult. I personally have a lot of friends who are 21, when we all go to house parties they can drink, but the cops are way too strict in Tempe. Cops usually break up house parties fairly quickly and hand out MIC's like they are candy. Your best bet for underaged students would be Frat parties. They are fun, lots of dancing and less cops.

Health & Safety: I always feel like that campus is a very safe place. Cause it is the life center of student who is well educated and good quality.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I would describe the girls and guys at Arizona State University really attractive. Greek life is really big at ASU, so if you want a social life, then you definitely would want to look into sororities and fraternities. The people at ASU dress very casual, and according to the weather. The relationships between the boys and girls at ASU would cliquey. Everyone hangs out with their type. It is not very diverse. Many people of different races come to this school, but stick with their own.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I would say that ASU is probably mostly white, but we also have a lot of international students. Diversity of religion is very big on campus and there are different political beliefs. Most have a club on campus that you could join if you wish to.

3 College Junior

Computers: I have my own personal computer that I use so I don't pay much attention to the computers at school, but ASU's wireless service works great. Their blackboard site right now is at least working better then when they updated it at the beginning of the summer. Not sure why they updated, because their last version was great.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Too Expensive – if you can afford to pay 3800 dollars a semester to live there, they are great. but the food sucks.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The Gym Is Great – i love the gym, there are always people there. some of the equipment needs to be fixed and the basketball court has a couple weak spots but other than that, it is perfect.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Lots to Do – I always say that I feel younger every time I walk around Tempe. It has such a lively and vibrant feel.

4 College Senior

Academics: Can Be Challenging If You Want – If you want to be academically challenged then Arizona State University is definitely right for you. Of course there are the "easy classes" but if you truly came to college to learn and expand your mind then there are classes and professors on campus that will greatly benefit you. ASU has a great Honors program and plenty of undergraduate research opportunities. If you're not afraid to seek out challenges you'll fit right in here.

1 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Things Could Be Better – Financial aid screwed me and several other people over. I do not get any assistance from my family, along with my boyfriend and he could not come back this semester. We fend for ourselves and just because our families have bad credit, does not mean that we do too.

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: I absolutely love the weather. Never goes below 55 and it is already in the 90s and it is the middle of March. Perfect!

1 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Pricey! The prices of apartments in my area are ridiculous. You have to go at least 5 miles away from the campus to find something decently priced that college students are able to afford.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: everything about it is perfection you wont regret coming

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ASU rocks! everything has been so fun and worth every dollar they steal from you(and that's alot of dollars) but overall its a great school and pretty respected academically too

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Pretty strict when it comes to drinking and smoking, unless you get a break and get an awesome Resident Advisor which 7 out of 10 times you will. Watch out for cops when your stumbling back to your dorm drunk they're all over campus

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The SRC(student recreational center) is awesome just like everything else on campus. There is a huge pool in the back 2 full basketball gyms, great work out areas and racquet ball courts. The libraries on campus to are cool because there's always so many people there someones bound to be studying the same stuff as you. Everything on campus is just so lively, if I could i'd live on campus forever!

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Good Mix – I'm not really caught up in the diversity of campus. I'm honestly oblivious to it.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: An Adult Student – I don't go to the dining areas much. I go to class and go home. I have visited a few, during very busy days. I have found them to be very expensive for a college student, so much so that it seems privitized. I like the fact that they have a wide variety, but it is sad how they don't have affordable alternatives for their students.

5 College Junior

Academics: Interdisciplinary Studies – This is a very complex program. I believe it prepares us for the world better because it teaches you how to incorporate two subjects into one application. There is no specialization, like Nursing or Engineering, but in the professional arena one could work in many different departments because you have learned analytical thinking skills.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think that the campus is fairly safe. At night however there isn't a lot of security that I see.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: ASU's good reputation and its ability to excel in sports and extra-curricular activities make it special

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – the drug scene is not very visible, however, drinking can be fairly visible, not much pressure, unsure of enforcement

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: At ASU, there are a great deal of cultural events, there are always sports activities to either see or take part in, and the local area attractions include various great food spots.

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!
