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.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Little parking and so many students. The lines to pay for parking are so long.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Its Big – Everyone knows about stuff like this, but its if you want to do it or who you hang out with.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Macs, Dells, HP – There is all different types of computers. Good quality.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys/girls at ASU are attractive overall. ASU is very diverse and you can find many different types of men and women on campus. A majority of the women here are tan, thin, and pretty. There are a lot of attractive, athletic and non-athletic men too.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have to say that it is good but could be better. Each sorority has their own qualities that make them great but each house has a reputation. We don't actually have houses though and the alternative to that is dorm-style living south of campus. I see a lot of girls and guys around campus wearing their letters so we are visible but we really don't dominate the social scene as much as we should. The fraternity boys at ASU are pretty cool to be around. Many of them don't have housing on campus and the ones that do live in disgusting, outdated houses on the north side of campus. All the parties and social events I've been to have been a lot of fun and there's usually something going on. Greek life is not for everyone but it is a lot of fun and worthwhile if you like it and decide to join.

4 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life at ASU is pretty serious! it is pretty easy to rush for any sorority or frat, it is also fun because it gets you involved and people are so accepting and you meet so many new people in the process!

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: the off campus dining is very convenient, awesome and cheap! there are alot of places around campus (walking distance) to eat at an affordable cost. Most places around campus will give you a college discount which is awesome!

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: there are so many awesome great things about ASU, the greek life is excellent the people are so nice and welcoming the teachers are great and the campus has so many uplifting opportunities for anyones education path!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: BOY/GIRL Looks – When it comes to the men at ASU I would say you'd find the most attractive ones at the main campus, which is in Tempe. Downtown has all the ugly and childish ones. There's a bigger diversity group on the Tempe campus, and 9 times out of 10 you'll find a guy whos cute/hot standing on every corner of all racial background.
As for the women, it's pretty average...you've got your ugly, the pretty, the hot, and the absolute hideous ones. Most of them carry themselves pretty lady like, and although we're in Arizona where the sun is super hot, you won't catch to many girls dressing too slutty, but you will find many girls who are not ashamed to flaunt their cellulite. Although there's some diversity there's A LOT of blondes here, who are both born that way, or dyed there hair.
Overall, most people here have tans, weaves, and even though they have cellulite, there are absoultley no obese people here at all.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: On the downtown campus, there are very many places to eat that are in walking distance from the dorms like subway,pizza hut/wing stop, baskin robins, chilies, unos, and other restaurants at the Arizona Center, which is like a miniature mall. The most frequent deliveries made is from dominos pizza, and most people choose to eat subway so they wont get the freshman 15 :)The only problem with this is that because the cafeteria food is sooo digusting almost everyone eats out, which can get expensive.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Wireless Access – Everyone MUST have computer access to survive whether it's your own or one in the library. ALmost all homework assignments are posted online as well as extra credit opportunites both in and outside of the classroom. Teachers are forever emailing their students for updates like assignments and last minute information like canceling class. Although there are many computers offered around campus, it's better to have your own so you can always check your homework and due dates and any changes that can occur.

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!
