4 College Freshman

Weather: Great Arizona Sunshine – Classes never get cancelled as a result of the weather. For the most part the sun is always shinning and rarely affects campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Meal Plan – Overall the Barrett Honors College meal plan is great. There are options of meal exchanges and various locations on campus as well as unlimited meals in the dining hall and 4 guest meals per week. However guest meal are not accepted at all dining halls on campus and the left over meals do not carry over. Meal exchanges can only be accepted once every half hour and only $100 Maroon and Gold dollars come with the meal plan.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The rumors of the Greek life is that the students only party and do not focus on school. Even though I am not part of any sorority, I have had heard and discovered that the students who are involved in a sorority or fraternity are pushed to do great in their education. It helps them succeed in their academics because they have more resources that can help them with their classes.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Active Centers for Sun Devil Students and Falculty – At Arizona State University the facilities are alwas active and updated. The student union, Memorial Union is a great place to interact. It has a food court and amazing little markets in the main level. It also has quiet places to study, big rooms to hold events and an enournmous quad to hold events outside. The Student Recreation Center is another facility that is always having events where students, faculty and other visitors can join and participate. Both of these centers and many others are always active for the Sun Devils at ASU.

5 College Freshman

Computers: Dependable Computer Labs – It is very nice to have your own computer, with the wireless access all over the campus. But if one does not have one it is not a huge deal, because the computer labs in Arizona State University are very dependable. They always have enough computers open for those who do not have a laptop and the printing process is easy as 1, 2, and 3. At Asu, the computer labs are very successful.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: ASU offers a variety of methods of transportation for students and for inter-campus commuting. Very economical. I like it.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The university is very diverse with respect to ethnicity, and financial backgrounds. I feel great about it.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: General Campus Aesthetics – The campus is very inviting with innovative and interesting landscaping and architecture. ASU has awesome places to sit and relax.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They are very good. The CA's are always on duty, there are campus police, there are even some fire drills so we know what to do if the situation ever comes up.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Getting Into Programs – For me it wasn't hard getting into my major, it was just difficult to get used to the new college experience as a whole. The most important things was doing well in high school and proving you can handle college all together regarding grades and commitment.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone at ASU are very different in many ways. Everyone excepts everyone and racism is rarely an issue. Most people that go to ASU are wealthy and when it comes to the more controversial issues like political and religious people mostly keep it to themselvs.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Semi Safe – Over all ASU is a large school that has a lot of people of all kinds in it. Crime is rarely reported at the school except for last week with the man going around with a gun trying to rob people. However ASU has a great security system with their safety escorts making it more comfortable going around campus. They strictly enforce all rules for a safe campus as well.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Maybe I'm cheap, but it kind of costs a lot to eat on campus. It's fast food restaurants, but they seem overpriced. I wish there were more options.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Music Program – I love the music program at ASU. My professors are really helpful, but there are some things that should be changed. For example, some classes are irrelevant to my major, and I wish I could spend more time doing applicable things.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of ASU, but it does not dominate the school. Greek life throws many parties and events around the school and also participates in a lot of charity work. Although many people do decide to join a sorority and fraternity, there are many other clubs and organizations for students to join as well at ASU.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Melting Pot – Arizona State University is not called "The New American University" for nothing. It prides itself on being on of the most diverse and accepting Universities in the country. There are several different races, religions and ethnic backgrounds at ASU and there even is a different club for each of these types of people.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm Life Is a Once in a Lifetime Experience! The dorms at Arizona State University are great. They really help students become involved and make friends much easier. Dorm life is never boring and definitely something everybody should experience!

3 College Junior

Majors: W.P. Carey – The W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU is a very strict and difficult program to excel in. Prioritizing duties and establishing a work ethic to achieve stellar grades may be exhausting at some points.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Farmers Market – Tents with a wide variety of food selections are set up a few times a month on campus. I believe it adds a community setting to my school and food is always bringing people together.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Tempe Is Expensive! Anything within a five mile radius from ASU Tempe is almost always above the market price. I found a house over on Baseline Rd and 44th street with inexpensive monthly payments.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Unique Opportunites – At ASU you are able to meet a varity of people from different backgrounds. The cost of living is also cheaper than those of other states. Weather is wonderful except for the 3 really hot months in summer. Other than that. I would not like to live in any other state by personal choice.

College Senior

Greek Life: Don't really participate in Greek Life and not exactly interested in it at all.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Police and Safety Services – Campus security is friendly and always vigilant. I feel safe on this campus

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Don't Stand Out – Greek life doesn't stand out on campus. My expectations is to hear about frat parties or see more of fraternities/sororities performing or just being seen on campus.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: I feel Arizona as a whole has many white people so I am not surprised that the university would be the same. It would be a lot better if there was more diversity and more people for me to relate to.

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!
