Parking: Parking permit are extremely expensive. Unless you are there five days a week for eight hours a day, they are not worth it. There are meters in various spots, but you can only park in them for one or two hours. ASU will ticket you if you are parked where you don't have a permit or if there's an expired meter.

Facilities: Campus has many different facilities for students to utilize. The Memorial Union (campus center) has many food options, gaming areas, study areas, computer labs, and much more. They gym and pool on campus are very nice. There are always vendors, student clubs and events happening on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Great Atmosphere – Arizona is a very hot city but there are a few attractions. On the strips there are many clubs and bars for young people to have fun. There are also beautiful mountains and parks for the active people that want to go jogging or walk.

Overall Experience: Despite the drug problem at Arizona State University, I love it here. The campus is gorgeous, most of the people are friendly, and the Interior Design Program is amazing! There is immense school spirit here, which is different than my high school, and I love it! Even though it has a reputation for parties, the academic programs here are really good. There are at least a handful of prgrams which are highly rated among others in the nation. It is not all just fun and games, you have to work hard to earn that coveted degree.

Drug Safety: "Arizona Meth Project" – The surrounding areas around Arizona State University, Tempe Campus, do not really provide a great role model for the students attending Arizona State University. Arizona is known for its Meth problem, though, I do not really see much of it on campus. The drug of choice by the students, is popularily marijuana and of course, alcohol. Being known as the number one party school in America, Arizona State University does live up to its reputation.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Arizona State University is a melting pot of students. There is every imaginable relgious affiliations who have centers within walking distance to campus. There are many groups and clubs that unite certain ethnicities and races as well as unite everyone. There does not seem to be many diversiy issues across campus. I do not hear very often of an instance where there has been a crime committed based on race. Walking across campus I notice groups of friends together who do not have the same background, racially, but they still are friends and they are able look past accept each other for who they are.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nice People – I am not super social but so far the people have been pretty nice.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Tuition Keeps Rising! The tuition is so unpredictable. Save up now, you never know what it will be next semester!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Parking at the West Campus Is Amazing – The parking at the west campus is huge! The main reason I attend that campus, I hear all of the other ones are pretty terrible.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Coming from a community college i am used to not really having clubs that you can join. Compared to my first day at ASU I has offered to join about 3 or 4 clubs or organizations. From religious to sports or scholastic. It feels like another way people can connect with each other.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Peer Pressure – Really peer pressure is what you make of it. If you don't want to be pressured into drinking or drugs you don't have to. It really is your influences that have the biggest impact on your life. Even though Arizona State University is one of the biggest party schools in the nation. I have never been really pressured to do anything that I have not wanted to do.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: ASU offers a good selection of on campus housing and there is plenty of housing that is within fifteen minutes of campus. you are able to find the right place for you at the right price. It took no time at all for me and my wife to find what we wanted off campus.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: ASU is a "dry campus" meaning they supposedly have zero tolerance for alcohol...WHAT A JOKE.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Downtown Phoenix Campus – Generally feel safe despite lots of people thinking downtown is full of homeless people.
Feel more comfortable in a group, of course.. but on campus by myself isn't really an issue.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: When you walk around campus you see a lot of people with the grrek shirts and bags but you also notice that the people with these bags or shirts and attractive people. Makes you feel like your too ugly to get in to a sorority or a fraternity. And the people are basically showing off that they are beautiful and the rest of the people aren't.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: A Lot of Everything – Here at ASU there are a vast amount of whites, but there are also plenty of people from different races. There are African american, Native american, asian, indian, and everything in between.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Extremely Stressful – I am taking courses in film and the professors are okay except one of them. He makes it fell like he is there to give his lecture and thats it. If we need help it's like we can't go to him we have to get help elsewhere. However the sources here are always overcrowded.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: ASU has nice surrounding with great luxurious apartments, gyms, and restaurants.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Phoenix, AZ is home of the hot-hot-heat. We're not called Sun Devils just because it sounds cool.

Nightlife: College Town – Lots of bars and lots of music. Even more drinking violations. If bar hopping Thursday through Saturday sounds appealing, go for it.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Boys on Campus – Boys on campus can be described as extremely cocky.. Supposedly ASU has the hottest girls on campus ... sorry boys can't really say the same for you

the majority of the boys here have SoCal style .. which is like a california surfer type look going for them and ride their boards around campus, which is cute.

For the most part boys .. I'd suggest joining a frat if your interested in Greek girls

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Good Eats Around – At ASU West, the food on campus in the dining hall is okay, but off campus there's a lot of choice. Within a two-mile radius, you can easily satisfy what you're craving.

Transportation: The cost are aobut $800 for parking every where and you never can get a good spot.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The teams are great and everyone is happy to be here

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Mesa Arizona – I live in mesa Arizona. Mesa is a really quite place. The University is about 10 miles away. We have old town mesa but other than that there is not much here. We do not mind the students but there are not everymany here.

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!
