Academics: I feel the fashion class was not all it should have been.

Greek Life: The Only True Greek Scene Is on Alpha Drive – There aren't many fraternities left with houses on ASU's campus, but the ones that are, are all that really matter. People will knock ASU's Greek Life, but that is until they set foot in an Alpha Drive manor. Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Sigma Pi, Sig Ep, Delta Sig, and AEPi rule the row and Greek Life at ASU.

Guys & Girls: I Fall in Love at Least Ten Times a Day on Campus – I grew up in Los Angeles and I can honestly say that nowhere in the world has more hot girls in one place than Arizona State University. It's absurd how hot they are. Spring and summer are special times of the year when it is not uncommon to head to class and find a girl in a bikini top sitting next to you. I can't even count how many times I've fallen of my skateboard just because I was checking out some girl a bit too long and missed a curb. If there was such a thing as love at first sight, then it would be safe to say that I fall in love again and again on my way around campus at ASU.

Campus Housing: W.P. Carey Students Should Take Advantage of the Living Community – I had the time of my life freshman year in the business dorms. Naturally, W.P. Carey kids are not going to be the average shmo ASU students who fully took advantage of ASU's "If you can breathe, you can attend" acceptance policy, but we're business kids, and though we're smart, we know how to have fun. Know your rights and study the 5th Amendment because RA's and campus police will try and strip you of them, but as long as you know when they're over the line you can pretty much get away with anything. I made friends on all four floors of my building, many of whom I am still close with or in contact with going on three years now at ASU. There are more security doors and locks to go through to get into the dorms than you'll know what to do with, but once inside you'll notice a clean, modern student living facility. During finals week you'll find all your floormates cracked-out and huddled around a large circular table in the study room cramming. However, on any other night that table is great to squeeze into someone's room for a nice night of poker to pregame before going out. The best part of the business dorms was having friends and floormates in all of my classes. Studying together was a definite asset to living in the Carey dorms.

Campus Strictness: I Tested My Boundaries at the Dorms! When I was a frosh, I was written up 5 times for absolutley nothing. The process is pretty fair but I was lucky enough to talk my way out of it each time. Also, the campus police are looking to bust freshman for drinking at any event! They hang out by the dorms during the weekends and there are undercover cops everywhere during gameday! I feel safe at ASU but they are really cracking down on underage drinking. If you are smart about what you do you will be fine but if not plan on saving money for some fines!

Off-Campus Dining: M&G Dollars Are a Life Saver!! M&G dollars (maroon and gold) are the tax free food dollars you can use on and OFF campus...yes thats right some places directly off campus will take youre flex dollars. Thats not only a good thing about it....your parents wont know where you are spending the money, they will just think you are feeding your mind. Off campus choices are aplenty. You are in walking distance of Mill Ave. which has awesome student deals and is a great way to get off campus!

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Anything You Could Want and MORE!!! ASU has an amazing dining experience!!! They have healthy choices and your good ole' burgers and fry's. You have choices from eating at one of the many all you can eat dining halls or you can eat at one of the major chains in the union. The problem becomes that it becomes quite expensive when you start eat on campus all the time if you are not a freshman and you don't hve a meal plan. If you are a freshman you are going to love eating on campus!!

4 College Senior

Computers: Computers at ASU are a must; however, you do have access to computers 24/7. The computing commons has a 50/50 split of Mac's and Dell's. It is important to have a computer because ASU is all about online education and online resources. ASU has an AMAZING network once you get used to it!! They also have a great tech department to help with any issues.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Arizona State's students have a lovely campus life. Every where you turn there will be flyers of something happening. It seems that we all pull together to help our school and it really works because I haven't seen a campus life quite like ASU.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's One of a Kind – Every where you turn on the Arizona State campus you will see yellow and maroon. The school is so school spirited. I couldn't imagine anyone diliking this school. Everyone joins together for sporting events and shows their pride for their school, the whole ASU experience will be one I will never forget.

4 College Junior

Diversity: We the students that attend Arizona State University are truly diverse. We all come from different states, or in some cases different countries. Although we may differ significantly we all share one thing in common, we are all a part of the ASU family.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: NO More Dorms... Its the Besttt!!!!!!!! My first year at ASU I lived in a dorm, the experience was amazing, but having your own apartment is sooo much better. It is actually very easy to find an apartment. There are so many options and ut u so convenient as far as transportation, there are always city buses or th e Orbit(FREE) available for school.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Campus Life – There is always something to do at ASU. if not a free lecture, or new club to join, a show at Gammage or comedian performing. What i like the most is that it is soooooo easy to get help when needed. There are all types of tutoring centers for every subject, and when it is time for an exam, there are more special study sessions and also the TAs are always there, as well as the professors.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Pretty Strict – Arizona State University has a pretty strict policy on drinking and drug use. Some students I met were caught drinking a few times and received M.I.C's and were forced to attend a class. Other students in my dorm were smoking marijuana and the police came to the room and they were given only one more chance before they would be arrested. One girl I knew was caught drinking in the dorms and was forced to write an essay about alcohol.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Design Dorms Are the Best – I lived in Best C during my freshman year. This building is located in center village at the southwest corner of campus. I enjoyed my entire residential life. I'm an Architecture student and our dorm building was part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, so all of the students were design and arts majors. This was really helpful because I was able to work on projects with other architecture students without even leaving my dorm! On the bottom floor of our building was a studio where we were able to work on projects, which was extremely convenient because it would be bothersome to walk across campus with all your supplies and portfolio.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Arizona State University. There are safety posts with buttons for a police call located across campus and are easily spotted with a blue light. A service to help escort students around campus is available just by calling and is very helpful at night. At the beginning of the year we were required to take a safety class taught by a police officer and it helped me to feel safe around campus. At the meeting we were given whistles, I've had mine on my keychain ever since. I've never walked around at night alone, so I've never felt in danger of anything on campus. The dorms I lived in were surrounded by gates that could only be accessed with a student card so I felt safe from outside unwanted visits.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Here or There? There are a lot fo things to do at night on the main ASU campus, but not a lot to do at the Downtown Campus. There is bowling, clubs, eating places, and parties always filling the streets of Tempe, AZ. But in Downtown Phoenix there are approximately 2 clubs and they are not very good. Food places close around 8, and after that you are just out of luck. There is nothing to do.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: ASU is know for their awesome athletics. Footballs games are one of the biggest things that just bring everyone from all campuses together on Saturdays. It is always a lot of fun and it incorporates teamwork. There is tons of school spirit with the bleachers covered in Gold and Maroon. I love it.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: At ASU there are aren't a lot of different ethnicities. It is mainly hispanic and white people who attend the school. Yes, there are programs specially for African- Americans and ect., but it is only located at the main campus. There is nothing for us at the Downtown Campus.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Since most people carry their own computer availability is not an issue. The equipment is quality and reliable.

1 College Junior

Parking: The parking situation at ASU is terrible. There is very little room in the structures and they have poor visibility. On top of that, the parking spaces are tiny. Many cars overlap the lines on both sides. The prices of parking on campus are outrageous. They top $800, which is over twice as much as most "expensive" parking prices at Universities.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life at ASU is terrible. The fraternities don't compare to those at other schools. They have low standards and morals. Many of the frat boys are extreme drug addicts.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is pretty good. Eating on campus becomes monotonous after a while, so it's good to get off campus. There are a variety of fantastic dining options surrounding the campus. Everyone knows about Mill Ave, which is filled with great eateries such as My Big Fat Greek Restaurant and Corleone's, but there are several great food joints not located on Mill. My favorites are Thai Basil, The Vine, and Pancheros. The only thing missing is more/better fried chicken and bbq restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys, Girls, Too Much, All Good Differences, Hard to Focus on One – There are so many good looking people at ASU, it's difficult to focus on any particular group. It's not only sorority that has the hot girls and gorgeous boys, no, they're everywhere. Sure the majority dresses like pretty boys and most girls share the whole fake tan, bleach blonde hair, and other fake parts of their bodies, but all individuals are for the most part really curteous and kind. There is racial diversity even though one doesn't usually hear people speak in different languages. One could tell that most everyone shops at the same places around campus and new be's can be easily spotted. Eventually though, i think everyone gets influenced to buy clothes that fits Arizona weather. Either way there is no obvious discrimination between cliques or seperation between people of different ages.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There is a great variety of food on campus, from pizza and hamburgers to asian foods and italian pastas. There are various known restaurants like Burger King, and Starbucks, but also have small local cafe's and shops that also taste great like Charlie's and E sandwiches. The dining Halls are kept clean and there is always room to sit. Maintinence is very good at cleaning any mess people leave accidentally for the next students to sit down. there is also nice seating areas outside to enjoy nice weather and outside upstairs for dining with a nice view. The food is done well and is not sold too expensive; however, for some the dollars add up and many prefer more homestyle cooked meals from time to time than fastfood all the time. About the meal plans and other dining options i'm not all sure about, but i do know that the money i put into my suncard, i can use to buy food or use to print school work.

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!
