2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Schlorships; Boo – i recieved an okay amount of financial aid but i still owe a ton of money

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses Are Great – transportation is very convenientt and somewhat easyto find. you can get anywhere easily.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus Expensive – I live in a dorm, but the apartments here aree fairly convenient to distance from school but i know for a fact their super expensive if you live alone but as long as you have or get a roomate, it wont be that pricey, depending on location of apartments.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student Center – The student center is very convenient becausee all the important offices like financial, student account help and etc are all on the same building and floor.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Everyone seemed to be very nice and I loved that they had their own newspaper everyday. It is also walking distance to most bars.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Although I was not involved in Greek Life the people that were all looked and dressed the same.

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Need More – Most of the computer labs allowed you to chose whether you wanted to use a MAC or a PC. It was also sometimes really hard to even get to use a computer. Also you had to print and for some reason would always break.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Green School – our school is a very green campus. solar power and stuff.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Different Choices – There are various types of prices and options making off-campus living a alternative to sometimes expensive on campus room and board prices.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Healthcare Is Good – they built a new healthcare center that is state of the art

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's Practically NYC on Campus! The diversity on this campus is absolutely crazy. There are people from almost every country, and they are all friendly.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: THE BEST – Okay, so there are plenty of AMAZING sushi places here and there around on Mill Ave. and University Dr. Also there is a place called Smashburger, on College Ave. It is literally the best burger place you could ever visit. Most people have never been to it when they come to campus, and they go, and they are obsessed. I am one of those people.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Slow, but They Do. The computers on campus are unfortunately a bit slow when logging onto them, but after completely logged on they work just fine at an amazing speed. Printing is a hassle since you have to pay, but secret! If you have any language class, you can go to the language lab in the basement of the LL building and print for free! Wifi is also available all throughout campus, for students it is faster, for guests it still does it pretty well.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Seriously this school has everything you can possibly imagine, from the unique classes (yes, there is a class on Harry Potter) and the clubs and activities everywhere, if you can't find anything you like it's because you are not looking hard enough. And it isn't difficult to start your own club or event so if there isn't anything you enjoy, you can just start it yourself. I think the vast majority of activities to do on campus is what really attracts people here. It really widens your perspective on everything you thought you knew

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Trouble Is Trouble – The police aren't stupid around here, they know 90% of the kids walking around are either high or drunk but if they can't tell, they won't stop you. Just don't be stupid if you are going to do any partying or else your just asking to get in trouble. And getting in trouble is not fun, they are extremely strict on underage drinking and if you are caught with drugs as well. I've seen way too many people being chased around campus because they get caught all the time.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computer labs/libraries and computers available around campus that work perfectly fine and are easy to find no matter what time you need it, that also includes printing. The wifi can be a hassle at times, but overall it works. Having your own is the more convenient route but if it's not possible there are plenty of on campus options.

5 College Senior

Transportation: How Do I Get Home? When you live by a college, they make sure its in a popular area where there are things to do and buses to get you there. ASU has buses literally right around the corner. So it doesn't matter where you go, there will always be transportation to get you there.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: The Druggies, Coke Heads, and Hippies – College is where one you have freedom from not only parents but from what high school used to restrict you from. At A.S.U, the use of drugs such as hookah or marijuana can be seen almost everywhere around the campus. It is definitely not a taboo or a rule that you aren't allowed to smoke right out the front office of A.S.U

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Camus Housing – At Arizona State University, the price for living off-campus is not only expensive but just a bad idea. One will be away from all the campus resources, excitement of experiencing what college is about, and have a higher cost in living if they lived off-campus. It is the best decision to live on campus for you will be closer to professors, school resources, and other things that will benefit one. In the long run, it will better you if you live on-campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: A Little Bumpy – I ran into some issues concerning my financial aid. For one, I was dropped from a class due to an issue not seen at orientation and nearly lost my scholarship because the financial aid office was delayed in telling me what to do. You really must stay on top of things to make sure your own financial aid goes through easily.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: ASU has a huge selection of sports to both play and watch. Although I myself am not a sports player, the atmosphere for fans is excellent. The school spirit can truly be felt during the days leading up to, and the game day itself. Sun Devil Athletics is truly one of the stapes at Arizona State University!

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: ASU is surrounded by intriguing, unique restaurants. Some are local restaurants only native to Arizona and some are major popular chains. My favorite restaurants are all located on Mill Avenue. They provide a variety of sit down restaurants, sports bars, and cafes. Along with Mill Avenue, Tempe Market Place is a major hub for great restaurants. The atmosphere is lively and exciting and the restaurants are all moderately affordable.

3 College Freshman

Parking: It would help to have a car to go to other campuses or other parts of Phoenix. The downtown campus is very small and together. Prices are very expensive for a parking pass.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Eating at Downtown Campus – Many places close early, none have student discounts downtown.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Lively and Party – I grew up in Tempe Arizona and I never realized how at ASU there really is a party all the time atmoshpere. But Sometimes it isn't always like that. Mill Ave. is a fun lively place just to enjoy time with friends.

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!
