3 College Sophomore

Academics: Workload for Construction Management – it is hard work. you get project all the times. but it gets you prepared

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Great Job Opportunities – Many engineering companies love the experience that ASU graduates have when they come to join the work force and therefore are constantly at ASU. These companies include Honeywell and Boeing and other giants in their industry, and they want ASU graduates. There are a few job fairs throughout the year when you get to meet with future employers, which is a huge advantage.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are great places all around the ASU campus if you know where to look for them. Chipotle is right on the edge along with taco bell, wendy's, pita pit, and many other places to eat. The Chuck Box on the north end of campus has some of the best burgers ever made, and the south side of campus boasts the busiest dominos in the country. If you are looking for some place nice to go that costs a little more money, I'm guessing you have a car and can drive right around the corner to Scottsdale where there are a ton of nice restaurants.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The Memorial Union – There are 5 dining halls throughout campus where you can use your meal plans. The rest of places on campus accept "M and G dollars" which you put in your account. The memorial Union is the best place to go for some lunch and have many fast food places that include Chick-Fil-A, Burger King, and Jamba Juice. The dining halls have the usual cafeteria food and is all you can eat for a price of around 7 dollars or 1 meal.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Campus life is really good at ASU. It is a very large campus or should I say campuses so it can be hard to feel like a tight knit family, however there are many people to talk to and learn from.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The light rail can be very convenient and I use it often, however it is not available on the west side of Arizona where many people I know live and would use it if it were.

5 College Junior

Academics: The parks and recreation department at ASU is phenomenal. They always help you out and the staff is very passionate about what they do and have much experience in what they do. I appreciate the many emails I receive from teachers for volunteer hours as well.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Downtown Phoenix – Downtown Phoenix is a great place and there is much to do there especially with all the new restaurants, and shopping areas that were built recently. I enjoy it there.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Internships Are Acquirable – I haven't had an internship yet, but I do plan on having one that has to do with law. I am nervous about finding one but I think that if I really set my mind to it and focus on finding one, I will have no problem because I have heard from many people that it's not that hard to find one if you try hard.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Justice Studies Is the Way to Go – I'm in the justice studies major and it's really fun. There are a lot of internship opportunities and the advisors are very helpful and friendly. The workload is sufficient but it's nothing you can't handle.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is very inviting and exciting. There are plenty of opportunities to interact with other people and to meet new people. There is always something to do on and around campus. There are also a lot of traditions that you get to learn about!

4 College Junior

Academics: Not Just Another Number – Even though ASU is a huge school, once I got into the classroom, I never felt like just an ID number in a gradebook. Most of the professors I've had have been very engaged in their classes and encouraged participation and active learning from the students. The curriculum has always been logical and well-presented, and professors are always accessible if the student is willing to seek help.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Fun College Town.... If You're Into That Sort of Thing – Tempe is alive. The lights are always on, someone's stereo is always blaring, and there's a party happening somewhere at any given time of day. The Mill Avenue area is vibrant and acts as the downtown hub any college town needs, with plenty of shopping, a variety of restaurants, unique show venues and theatres, and enough bars and nightclubs to keep the locals entertained. The students behave in typical college fashion and take full advantage of the endless (and unavoidable) party scene. So, Tempe is great... if you're into that sort of thing. The serious student might find herself a bit out of place and feeling lonely amidst the sea of people with such vastly different priorities.

4 College Senior

Majors: Communications Program – It is very easy getting into the Communications program. On asu.edu they will list the important criteria for admission. The most important tip I can give is to talk to an advisor and they are helpful into getting you into the right program. Also, there is a major map so you know ahead of time what classes you need to be taking to graduate.

3 College Senior

Academics: Being in the Communications program here at Arizona State University has had its ups and downs. A lot of students start in the Communications program if they don't have a declared major yet. So the first required classes you take (ex. COM100) are in huge lecture halls with 400+ students. Now being on my senior year my classes get no bigger than 30 students. Overall, I have enjoyed being in the Communications program.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Tempe Campus Atmosphere – Tempe is a college based town with lots to do. It is also close to Scottsdale and Phoenix which has an amazing night life. The main strip of shops, bars, and restaurants in Tempe is located on Mill Ave just a minute walk from campus. School spirit is everywhere in this town! If you get the chance go to one of the Arizona State football games you won't be disappointed!

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Shopping, Dining, Partying – The atmosphere of Tempe, AZ where Arizona State University is located is as diverse as the students who live there! Everyone of any cultural background, unique personality, talent, interest, and passion will easily find a place to feel at ease and at home in Tempe. Along Mill Avenue, there are dozens of varied shops and dining areas; down University Drive, you will find equally as many hole-in-the-wall shops and business designed especially for college students. On ASU campus there are thousands of activites to become involved in, ranging from our nationally known football team, the Sun Devils, to the many hundreds of clubs for any interest one could imagine! Both the Tempe and ASU police are extremely capable of handling any crime or danger that could arise and have served us faithfully by keeping dangers to a small minimum, making the environment very safe and relaxing. Tempe is a college party town, and the locals love to cater to the desires of the students! Every nook and cranny of this town is for the students and everyone is so kind and friendly. ASU is a wonderful college! GO SUN DEVILS!

5 College Junior

Majors: Positive Opinions All Around. I'm in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and majoring in Urban Planning. I get a good amount of work. Also receive multiple opportunities to work with others or as a group. Professors are helpful whenever you make the effort to communicate.

4 College Junior

Academics: A Great Place to Learn. Many schools and colleges within Arizona State University. Great Business and Supply Chain Management programs as well as Architecture and Industrial Design. Many places to go for academic help like time management, tutoring, and note taking.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Lively and Welcoming. Tempe is definitely lively. Lots of stuff to do with friends and family. A great place for multicultural arts and recreation as well. I particularly don't like the partying and what not.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Arizona Downtown for ME! Arizona State has many locations, but downtown works perfect for me. I can take the light rail to school and it is close and convenient to places to eat. Arizona State downtown has a smaller campus and that is more ideal for me.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: No Communication Regret – I loved my major and program at school never thought I would enjoy somwthing so exciting. The classes were all hands on and really got the proper training from the instructors. Everything was hands on and had plenty of fun doing it. My only concern about finding a job is that I won't have one right after I graduated.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Connects Are Key – All my professors are professional about their work and expectations. My program allows myself to meet and interact well with others. They help you with the proper training if you need assistants. I have had some of the best intruction from my professors in this field.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Excitement All Around – Arizona is mega hot with one exception Arizona State University. In the mist of Tempe Arizona there is a wonderful campus filled with students ready for the excitement. Mill Aveune offeres a wide varity of shops, bars & hangout spots for college students. Two hours away is our rival school UA, which is a huge party school.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Architecture Firms – As an architecture major, I will be helping in architecture firm. Some may be working on things from fixing drawings to consulting.

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!
