5 College Freshman

Diversity: Arizona State is extremely diverse. There are large groups with many different cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi on campus is definitely a very nice addition. The Available computers are very convenient and easy to use.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They really help you and answer all of your questions. Even let me submit a letter to repetition for more student aid without getting mad at me...got a nice respectful response back even though I didn't get more money.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I think mainly the climate... yes it is hot in the summer but during the school year it's beautiful out here and the whole campus is filled with trees & stuff...like a big arboretum. It's got a great desert touch to it as well.. the adobe colored brick buildings complement the surroundings. There's alot to do on campus and around Tempe...very fun...the ultimate college town..why else would we have the highest enrollment in the country? ...And compared to other universities, quite the bargain financially. Plus plenty of dating opportunities. Nothing bad about it at all really, basically the best for the full college experience.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Largely Behind the Scenes – There is some showing of Greek pride on campus in terms of frats/sororities but they do not have much of an external influence on the rest of the university beyond the actual members in the groups themselves.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The campus seems very relaxed about their rules except parking is the exception

4 College Senior

Athletics: The students have a very strong support for their sports teams including girl softball

3 College Senior

Facilities: The gyms are nice but sometimes it gets big crowded.
I think one solution is to have more gyms overall on each campus

5 College Senior

Transportation: By Car, Foot, Bus Light-Rail – The transportation ant ASU is great, you can get to any campus from another one real easy. You are near the freeway and the buses are always running.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Safe and Friendly – There are 4 campus to ASU in which you can ride the light-rail to get to and all of them are safe, campus police are no to far away if they are needed and will response quickly. However, you have to remember that you are in the desert and keep water with you at all times, because you will walk to class on a 115 degree day.

4 College Senior

Academics: the nursing program is amazing. very dedicated instructors and mind stimulating program

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking as an Extracirricular – Drinking is deffinately a huge part of the social scene, lots of house parties and Mill Avenue with lots of bars just a few steps away from campus. ASU is "strict" about enforcing it, so either don't bring stuff on campus, or don't get caught doing so. Drugs are whatever, they aren't prevelent, but if you wanted some, you could probably find some with about two phone calls. And although drinking is popular, I've never felt pressure to do anything I didn't want to do.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: This school has over 50,000 students, so there is a wide range of people, but I can say with so many students, whatever you're looking for, you will probably be able to find it

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus living near asu greatly varies, not only from choices(student apartment communities(non-university affiliated dorm lifestyle), apartments or houses), but also in cost, saftey, living conditions, ect. You're best bet is to just research the area...

5 College Freshman

Weather: I've grown up in Arizona; love the continous sunshine and ability to go outdoors everyday without wondering if there will be rain, a weather storm, or snow.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Community Atmosphere – I will be attending the downtown Phoenix campus surrounded by all the cultural centers, civic center, sports stadiums, many different types of restaurants which all will be in walking distance of my campus.

College Freshman

Academics: Health Sciences Major – I'm an incoming freshman for Fall 2011; haven't started classes yet.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Light Rail and Buses – Since they finished construction on the light rail, getting around has gotten a lot easier. It runs straight through the main and downtown campuses. There's also a pretty thorough bus system.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol and drugs aren't allowed on campus. That's not to say that people don't break the rules. But if you get caught you can get into trouble. Plus, there are a lot of bars around campus if you really want to drink.

4 College Junior

Athletics: It's a Pretty Fun Experience – Fan support at Arizona State can get pretty intense. Football games are especially fun to attend. With so many students attending, there's usually a sea of kids in gold t-shirts. Since the new uniforms were unveiled this summer, everyone is getting psyched about the new black jerseys. I think Black-Out Friday will be pretty epic.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is exsitence at ASU but it is slowing dying, and no where near as popular as Greek life at East coast schools.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Great Gym – Huge gym with nearly all gym equitment nesscary for any work out!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Fairly Safe – Since its a huge campus crime does go on, but nothing too concerning or out of the odinary. The school is always clean and provides many safety options. For example the school provides a safety escort (car service) for student to travel in at night. I have never felt uncomfortable personally.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Mill Ave. is where to go if you are 21+, if not then it sucks to be you. But there are also plenty of house parties which are generally much more awesome than the clubs and bars. But with the assortment of girls in the area there is no going wrong.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All Kind of Lame – The majority of the dorms have issues and are pretty lame. The good thing is that they are close to most of the buildings you will need. There is no alcohol allowed on campus, so it makes living in the dorms harder. Keyless entry to the main buildings makes it a bit nicer, but I suggest renting a place in the area.

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!
