3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Many on-campus security personnel present. Fire drills are routinely performed and emergency call boxes are plenty present throughout campus and on-campus living quarters. I feel quite safe at ASU.

3 College Junior

Athletics: ASU is big on Athletics. We have huge school spirit especially when it comes to football. Our campus is large and we promote healthy eating habits as well as exercise. We have a huge gym available to all students and even work out classes. You will find students running through campus for working out as our campus is large enough for people to walk, jog, or run through it for exercising.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: ASU offers a huge ethnic variety. We have people from all over the world and nation. As for looks, we have alot of good looking people and we have our own calender for the top 12 hottest girls at ASU. The social life is great especially at night. All around tempe you will see that students are up at all times of the day.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to eating off campus. By far one of the most popular areas to go to is down Mill Avenue. There you will find a lot of different bars and restaurants to eat at.

2 College Junior

Weather: It is really hot and walking between classes becomes exhausting in 100+ degree weather

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are not too many discounts but there are a lot of variety of places to eat near the campus and the cost is not too high.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Good Especially for Parties. There are alot of apartments close to campus and many are by the lightrail, which takes you directly to the school. Prices are average 600 monthly for 2 bedrooms, which is pretty good. Many apartments are not fancy or looking great, since college students who rent often don't take care of place very well.
Fancy ones are more expensive typically paying at least 500 a month each individual. A lot of parties, which in a student's case,is great. Cops will bust some parties but not most of them. Some apartment complexes are known for having rude and inefficient landlords and office staff.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A couple of places to eat off campus. Many college students of course save their travel time and order either pizza or jimmy john's. Food is average based on location from campus and taste. Prices are ok.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Overall, the facilities are nice.Nothing fancy or advanced, but they do a good job of being sustainable. The dorms are pretty much average. The health center is under construction for expansion and there is a new business building being built. Recreation center average, nothing unique or good. They are improving overall but focusing more on sustainability than anything else.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Recreation Center – There is enough equipment to workout for everyone. The pool is huge and amazing. There are many fields so nobody has to stay to wait for someone to finish. Everything is well organized and cleaned. There's healthy smoothies for sell at the entrance. Everything just fits pefectly.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There Is a Lot of White People – I would say at this university there is a high percentage of white people, and that;included, there are many other different races and cultures that I find interesting. I think that all races are collaborative towards one another and that they are friendly. Most of sexual orientation on the campus; what i think, is girls because to me I see it as Men are about 1/4 of the university, but most is all of women.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Had to go through a lot of people and loopholes to get my financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Internet connections are always good from your personal laptop, as is printing, but getting on a windows computer in the computing commons is a hassle and can take a lot of time

1 College Senior

Parking: the parking at ASU is outrageous. Plan on walking and not driving if you can. the pay to park lots are expensive and the parking permits are rediculously expensive. I don't know who enjoys paying 800 for a term to park in a garage or for around 600 you can park and walk a few miles to your classes. The parking police are everywhere and out to get you.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: If You Get Caught Drinking You'll Get a Warning – If you get caught dinking in a campus dorm you'll most likely get a warning and have to have a couseling session. If you get caught again you'll probably get expelled.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Crime – in recent years there seems to be an increase in campus crime based on theft and molestation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience at ASU so far has been incredible. I'm so happy I chose to become a sun devil! Everything has been wonderful. I can't wait to see what other adventures come my way.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking across campus alone, until it comes to nighttime. It's a little sketchy at times, but there is a service available to walk you across campus safely, which definitely comes in handy.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have only been at ASU for seven weeks and have already learned so much! I'm really excited to move forward.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are plenty of buses and light rails available, but having a car on campus is inconvenient. The parking is never where you need it to be, and you end up walking far to where you need to go anyways. Parking permits are very expensive as well.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of white people at ASU, but there is a lot of student diversity. There are many foreign students and people from all over the country as well.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the libraries on campus. There are so many books and journals available as well as computers that are easily accessible and very convenient. The athletic center is very clean and extremely convenient as well. There are plenty of machines and classes to take. There are tons of campus activities. There are tie dye events, ice cream socials, dance parties, you name it we've got it.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek System – Greeks have a bad reputation at ASU due to the newer dean, however they are very diverse organizations focusing on the full college experience, such as furthering your education and having a blast before you have to face the real world.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The ASU student body is very attractive and well dressed. Appearance seems to be everything with this crowd as students are rarely seen in sweats even in early morning classes. Social life is almost a degree in itself, weighing high on the priority scale.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: So Much to Do – Honestly, there is so much to do at ASU for every type of person. If you want parties, there are plenty of them on every day of the week. Mill is booming on the weekends, so if you're over 21 that is definitely the place to be. Scottsdale is about a 20 minute drive, and has some great 18+ clubs. ASU puts on events called "Devils After Dark" on all four campuses every weekend, so if you are looking for something fun to do that doesn't involve partying all night, then that could be for you! ASU really does have something for everyone, the nightlife shouldn't disappoint.

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!
