4 College Senior

Facilities: Love This Campus! The facillities are typically clean and well maintained. Many of the dorms are close to activites. It has a nice landscape with places convienent for studying or just relaxing. I love walkling through campus as it gives me a feeling of being at home.

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: GREAT Food Town – The MU has great food options from healthy to fast-food. It is usually packed but there is a TON of great dining just around the edge of campus - lots of ethnic options, cheap eats, plus chain staples so everyone will feel at home.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Safe for Large City – ASU has campus security and offers a variety of safety and security options - but like any enormous campus in a big city, it is up to the students to take advantage of the systems in place and show some smarts...overall I would say that campus safety is comparable to any other large university, perhaps a little above average because Tempe's police department is very good.

5 College Junior

Computers: Library and Labs – The computer labs are open late and the library is open 24 hours so if you have to get a paper done you have plenty of time and quiet space to do

2 College Student

Weather: HOT HOT HOT!!! It gets extremely hot in the summer. In the winter it's not to cold. In the spring and fall the weather is perfect

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life isn't that big of a deal. You hear about frats and sororities and they do get involved but it's not anything major. Everyonce in a while they throw huge parties

4 College Student

Nightlife: This is a huge party school. There are thousands of students, so even if you don't like to party, you'll find people with the same interests as you. The parties are great and the people are fun. It's not hard to find ways to get around

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Check Out Superstition Springs Mall – Filled with an abundance of restaurants with a terrific view of restaurants that can fit any person's needs and wants weither it's real food or just a fun snack.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Tempe, Great student union, always something to do.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: From time to time people do get nise complaints for playing music too loud, or just being to loud in general. Usually one gets written up and warned. However, I am not sure what the next consequences are.

5 College Senior

Diversity: ASU offers alot of diversity, they're are many races from Native American, caucasian, African American, ect. Therefore, it is safe to say that ASU definitely offers alot of culture and heritage.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Many Come to Visit – The social scene at ASU is great. Many neighboring schools come to ASU to hang out and have fun. Classes are average but the teaching staff and USG are great at ASU.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs and Alcohol – I do not partake in drugs. The police force is good about getting people in trouble for MICs and underage drinking and drug use.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments do not have a lot of variety in Tempe. It starts at about 600 per month to lease and can go into the thousands range. However, most are located close to ASU or to a bus stop or light rail stop.

3 College Student

Parking: ASU's a nice place when it comes to parking. You can find it anywhere. The only problem is that you have to be early, otherwise it's taken

1 College Student

Drug Safety: Quite Frightening – There are heavy drinking parties everywhere. It's a little creepy, especially because I don't drink.

4 College Student

Academics: All Right – The teachers and the cirriculum are pretty good. Also, it's not hard to register, and the workload isn't too bad. ASU's biggest problem, though, is the size of its classes. There are almost 500 students per class! This is especially frusturating when you need to talk to one of your teachers. There are other places you can get help if you need it, so that's good.

4 College Senior

Parking: it is somewhat pricy but overall i have no problems

3 College Senior

Greek Life: i haven't been around arizona state university enought to know

5 College Student

Diversity: Pretty Diverse. ASU has a pretty diverse campus. ASU's one of those schools that's so diverse, you don't even notice the person sitting next to you doesn't have the same religion, or has a different income than you do. It's really nice, especially for people who don't like stereotyping or the like.

4 College Student

Campus Dining: Really Cool – ASU is actually a really nice place for people who need food to think. There are a variety of places to get something to eat, and it's usually pretty cheap, too. Even if you are off the actual campus, ASU's surrounded with fast restaurants if you don't have much time.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I live in the Barrett Honors College and it is brand new this year. It is better than living at home. Large rooms with a dining facility next door.

Some dorms are more than 40 years old and it shows.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Sun Dollars accepted at most. Plenty of fast food nearby. Whataburger and others are open all hours.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Mixed Priorities – It seems like campus security would rather arrest a drunk college student than help someone who was in trouble. Police immediately head for someone who may be intoxicated, but won't give a crying girl a second glance.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: Very Diverse – The diversity at ASU is abundant. There are many types of people that attend. Especially Freshman.

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!
