2 College Student

Athletics: The only sport that gets attention at ASU is the football team. I feel bad that all the other sports do not get any recognition. ASU football is a long tradition so it is understandable why it is so big, but I think it mostly has to do with tailgaiting befor the games...

2 College Student

Diversity: If you do not drink, it is extremely hard to find friends and people who have the same interests as you. ASU has a reputation of being the biggest party school. Some of us, however, are here to actually go to school. A social life is hard to come by given this reputation.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Dorm Cost – Living in the dorms was not bad, but it was way too expensive. Between my roommate and I, we were paying over $1,600 a month for a space the size of an office cubicle. ASU makes freshman live on campus, which is a good idea, but they need to make it more affordable.

Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Transfer Student – I'm starting at Arizona State University in the fall. I don't have an overall experience "GRADE" for the school yet.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Small, but Friendsly – It is a pretty small town, and most people know each other and get along pretty well

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Campus Student Life – Guys & Ladies at ASU are very attractive for the most part. Many take care of themselves and work out. ASU is a dating campus. Most students enjoy dating and are not necessarily in a serious relationship. ASU students enjoy joining greek life and there are many gatherings that are not classr related

3 College Freshman

Computers: Dorm Network Reliability and Speed – When living on campus in the dorm rooms, connecting to the ASU network can be a bit of a hassle. There are security features and such that need to be in place before it will allow you access. But once your connected, there's usually no issue with reliability. You can always get on. It can be a bit slow depending on the time of day and use from the rest of campus.

3 College Student

Transportation: From what I can tell, public transportation is good around campus. I've never taken it, but I've never heard any complaints.

1 College Student

Parking: Parking is horrendous on campus. Metered parking only lasts for up to two hours (only one hour in some spaces). Parking tickets and fines are high. Parking passes are overpriced and the lots are far away. The reason everyone bikes to school is because, in order to park financially efficiently, you must walk two miles anyway.

4 College Student

Diversity: As a member of the LGBTQ Coalition, ASU is above-average in accepting those with different sexual preferences and identities. The university itself attracts diverse ethnic groups and it's not uncommon to walk into the union and hear five or six different languages being spoken.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great Food – There are plenty of varieties of restaurants and fast food places off campus that range from cheap to expensive

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Average Food – the food in the dining halls is nasty and expensive but the fast food places on campus should compensate for that.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: While I can not say much about the housing for the rest of ASU Barrett housing is amazing! It is a great community with plenty of space and many perks!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Genetic Cellular & Developmental Biology – I really love this program but with most of the harder science classes being 400+ students it can be really easy to get lost in the crowd. Teacher, advisers are really great at getting you help if you need it but you have to ask and while they do try they are not always helpful. However, overall I a satisfied.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's always sunny but sometimes just a little too hot.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Lots of Options – There are light rails, busses, sidewalks, bikelanes, and lots of other options to get around in Tempe, AZ.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not Too Much Going on – There's always people walking around or selling stuff or smoking cigarettes but there's not really anything crazy going on. There's two campus security stations on campus so there's always a cop somewhere around.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: ... but extremely large and not necessarily friendly.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great Education Program, Art Program, Secured, Nice Environment, Have Fun – I really like the art and education program at ASU. I also like the fact that walking around campus at any time is really secured

5 College Senior

Athletics: Sport Teams, School Spirit, Extracurricular Activities, Clubs, Devils Stadium – School spirit is everywhere on campus. ASU has a variety of sport teams. There are also many clubs who support in the games and get together for money raising

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Appartments, Condominios, Parking Meters, Safety, Security, Transportation – Tempe transportation serves everyone, specially students. There is the light rail as well which almost everyone rides to school. There are also other buses that go around the university. There are a lot of appartments complexes around campus as well.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The location of ASU is excellent. Tempe, Arizona is a beautiful place.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Too Much – Although it is fun to hang out with friends, sometimes it is to crazy at Arizona State. Most nightlife activities are for students 21 or older, but everyone seems to participate. It is not always a healthy environment.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The places around campus are excellent. A quick stroll through campus boasts a wide selection of delicious dining options.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pushy Police – Always around on the weekends, stopping students who walk on the streets if we even look slightly suspicious! It's good when you need them but sucks when you are just enjoying the night and having a good time.

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!
