5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had a lovely experience at Arizona State University. Everyone is kind, welcoming, and this has made it a joy.

5 College Junior

Athletics: It is a joy to be part of school that is so incredibly spirited when it comes to supporting all sports activities.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I believe that Arizona State University does an exceptional job at making the campus a safe place to be because of all the security that are around and more than willing to assist you 24/7.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Business Communication – I recently transferred majors and I'm really content with what I'm majoring in now i see myself going far in life with the degree i will soon receive.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Arizona state provides free transportation ranging from busses, Personally transportation at all times of the day!

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking passes and cost are based upon location and availability

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Parties Everywhere – ASU has parties every weekend, and whether that's good or bad for the schools reputation, it is definitely a talking point among students and somewhat helps build the student community.

Athletics: Fan Support – Fans at ASU are only fans when we win. Granted, it might be a product of our football coach (not great to say the least), but regardless, students are only interested in the schools athletic performance when we win, rather than being in it for the team itself.

1 College Sophomore

Computers: Printing on Campus – The main problem with printing on campus is two-fold. First, even to have the ability to print, you have to have a print card which is a base cost of $5. Pages are $.10 from that point on. The second problem is related to the first in which there is no free printing anywhere, not even a set number of pages at the beginning of each semester. I think allowing around 100 pages per semester or year would be a huge advantage (and eliminating the need for a print card - let us use our school IDs).

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many opportunities off campus that are very reasonably priced. You can find something close to campus that is walking distance for cheap. However, if you have loans offered to you it would be better off living on campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are many great facilities to chose from at ASU, which is another reason the school keeps getting larger. My favorite by far is the SRC, or Sports Recreation Center. If you are a student it is free of charge anytime anyday, and contains many great features, such as swimming pools, huge two story gym, basketball courts, racketball courts, and tennis courts.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Barrett, the Honors College! The honors college here is wonderful. It is a gorgeous facility, and the staff works well to keep the students working well. I also really love the LGBTQA Coalition, and the amount of available clubs is impossible to count. This campus is diverse in every way.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking is really popular here. Although it's a dry campus, there is a ton of alcohol. The CAs and other staff are usually really strict, though. I know a ton of people that have gotten caught with things like that. But I haven't heard too much about anything aside from alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Extremely Diverse – I love the diversity at ASU. I was walking to my dorm after one of my classes today and found a group of people doing cultural dances. Things like that aren't uncommon here. It's a breath of fresh air, as I come from a very typical, not diverse community. I love it. There are also a bunch of clubs specifically for different ethnicities, religions, political views, and sexual orientation. The LGBTQA Coalition here is amazing!

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: I live on the Downtown Phoenix campus and trust me there is nothing to do after six o'clock in downtown. It is dead. However, Tempe is only a lightrail right away and there literally something happening every night. But the lightrail only runs until two which to all you high school kids sounds crazy but you will think that is VERY early when you come here. Just try to get to know people on both campuses and make sure you always have a backup plan. It's fun here but just know that if your not in Tempe it is not going to be as much partying in fact they'll be none at all.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good Variety – There are plenty of locations on Mill in Avenue (within walking distance) and anything you can't walk to you can take the bus or light rail to. It's great!

2 College Freshman

Parking: Too Expensive – There's enough parking but it costs so much to park anywhere near your dorms, and you have to move when there are football games.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties... and Lots of Them. There's plenty to do on and off campus at night, both school sponsored and public.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are multiple computer labs and more in the libraries, and there are about an equal number of macs and pcs to use! Also lots of comfortable facilities for those who bring their laptops.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had an alright time here so far. But I don't think I've done my best in this school. It has brought on a lot of stress coming to this school. Although this school is all about the parties and stuff, to do good in this school you have to do your work. If I could do it over again I would not choose Arizona State. Even though I've met some amazing people, I don't think it was worth it entirely.

2 College Junior

Diversity: Well there aren't many different races in this school. Most of the students here are white, and there are a few students here of different races. There aren't any problems though it's just not that diverse. As for religion its pretty diverse. Also for the sexual orientation, as of recently there has been a recent change. It is pretty accepted here.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The malls and food places aren't too far from campus. They are kind of easy to locate. Arizona is a huge place so it takes some getting used to.

College Junior

Parking: I don't drive or anything so I'm not really sure how it goes.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Being able to cook healthy food is probably one of the pros. But having to pay electricity is a con, the bill is pretty outrageous even when you don't use the electricity often. There are many apartments around but they are pretty pricey. There has been some robberies in the apartment complexes.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's been some robberies and stuff on campus. Some shootings also. The security needs to be tightened up more so these things can be avoided. I don't think they are always on duty. They need to walk around campus at night because I would feel more safe. I feel safe during the day on campus but not so much at night. There needs to be more lights lit so I could feel comfortable on campus.

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!
