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.

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.

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.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Around the School – Other than bars, there is not a whole lot to do around 32st and Union hills. I find phoenix a dull place with not much to do.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletic Success – From what I understand, though I am not involved in athletics myself, our athletic department is successful. I understand that we have won track meets and various other competitions.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: I go to paradise valley community college and I cannot figure out how to correct the information on my profile so I will proceed with information about PVCC. I have never had problems finding a computer on campus. There are always plenty. They are in the cafeteria, the library, across from the library, and at various areas of the main building for students to access.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Best Choice I've Made – Choosing ASU was not on top of my list when I first was looking into collge. Now that I am here though, I wouldnt change my mind ever. The campus life is amazing. There is always a new person to meet and a friendly face to smile at. ASU is coming up in the rankings of colleges and it makes me proud that I am here although many would disagree. Work hard here at ASU and you are gaurenteed for sucess.

Campus Strictness: The CA's – At Arizona State University, the rules enforced by the Community Assistants are sometimes used to extreams. Most of the time they are on some power trip where they wnat to control any willing individual. If your caught drinking, run for cover. If your caught with drugs, you in for it. Not the nicest people on earth, but I guess in the end they are just doing their jobs. Just dont get caught being naughty in front of them. just a suggestion...

Campus Housing: The Putrid Smell of Stairwells – Palo Verde Main; it's the central location and home of the Engineering nerds with a mix of the occasional fraternity and sorority couple. The dorm is filled with people who care about eachothers sucess and it feels like a small town within itself. Everyone always does homeowrk together from there calculus classes or even simple classes we all hate like physics. But the thing to look foreward to the most here at Palo Verde Main is walking up the lofty stairwells. Best image: open the main entry, inhale the sweet smell of feet and look foreward to entering the next doorway. Open the next door and examine the bannana that was thrown against the wall about a week ago and is still rotting away into a brown and green color now. Next, move yor eyes down toward the floor where now you see that a soda has been added to the mixture. That must have been added the previous night. After taking in the image, proceed up the stairs and give a chuckel at the empty Bud Light can sitting lonely on the windowseal. On the floor now, you see some weird mixture of rice, seems to have been a caserole at one time or another. Just smile and look foreward to the end. Open the door at the top of the well and hope it doesnt stick this time. It does of course. Finally, you made it. What an adventure through ASU's finest stairwells in Palo Verde Main.

Local Atmosphere: One Word: WOW – Ever feel bored? Then you aren't living remotely near Arizona State University. With events occuring weekly -- if not daily -- and a vibrate locale, there is always something to do near any one of the A.S.U. campuses. From Downtown Tempe, to Glendale, to the Polytechnic campus, you'll be entertained and all you'll be able to say is: WOW.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: I myself have not seen any real major drug or alcohol issues on campus

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The Jamba Juice on Campus is a great idea, escpecially if you need a quick pick me up before class.

5 College Junior

Weather: It's usually warm, only gets blazing hot (if it does) the last two weeks of classes. It's awesome.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Wide Variety – It can range from head of the cheer-leading team to 45 year old woman.
From huge brainiac to class clown/party animal

4 College Student

Nightlife: There Are Some Parties – There are only a few parties at ASU, and the parties they do have are usually very controlled. There are instances in which the drinking gets out of hand, but the students are usually very responsible.

3 College Student

Athletics: The Sports Are Pretty Good – ASU has some pretty good sports teams, but they do not have a soccer team which is what I play. The teams that they do have rank pretty high though.

5 College Student

Diversity: Very Diverse – ASU is a very diverse school and so everyone feels welcomed and no one is left out. It is a very welcoming atmosphere

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computers are all laptops and are bolted to the tables, so if a person has trouble seeing from a certain angle it cannot be moved. The prices for copies is 10 cents per page. The only problem I have with that is that students can't get color copies for that money.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The overall atmosphere at ASU is amazing! People are very generous and willing to help! The professor have excellant teaching styles and are willing to help anyone out.

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!
