4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is fantastic. My only complaint would be that the on-campus parking does not support the off-campus life style. If you live off-campus, which most upperclass students do, it is almost impossible for you to pay less than $1,500 a year and have a spot on campus to park.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: Every student drinks and smokes marijuana. There is almost no exception to this rule. The school seems to be treating the effect of this situation by sending out more and more policemen giving more and more tickets every year. However they seem to not even care about the cause of the drug and alcohol use on campus.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: The school itself seems to look down on the greek life as a whole. Every year greek life seems to be villain-ized by the school board and local authorities. There is no recognition of the benefits that greek life gives to every individual who joins. Recently all of the housing for greek life was bought by the school and demolished, forcing every fraternity to figure the housing out off-campus and by themselves.

3 College Junior

Computers: The amount of computer labs at ASU is impressive. However, given the massive number of students that need computers and different software for everyday schoolwork, there needs to be a greater computer lab availability.

Off-Campus Dining: Mill is where it's at

Campus Strictness: Depends on what you're doing

5 College Freshman

Academics: First school of sustainability in the country! Loving it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Getting tired of dining hall.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Fitness center is outrageously incredible.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It's 70 degrees in December here. F*** yeah.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They were forced off campus, not too big of a presence on campus.

3 College Senior

Transportation: There are buses available that can take students from one campus to another, but most students find that using the light rail train is the easiest method for travel between the two main campuses.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I don't see many strict policies or enforcement of policies on campus. One exception is the honor code. Any kind of academic dishonesty results in severe consequences.

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus is awful. There are never any spots open and the cost is expensive. Many students opt for taking the light rail train as an alternative because it is somewhat cheaper and students don't have to worry about finding a parking space.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus police constantly patrol the campus and there are emergency call boxes in several places on campus. Students can even request a police escort to their car or dorm if they have night classes and do not feel comfortable walking alone.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love ASU so much! The spirit is great! There is so much school pride here! I love the party life and the support systems made throughout your classes and dorm-ing experience.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a great option to split a four bedroom house with friends to lower the costs of rent! It's cheaper to rent farther away from the school.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: ASU is situated next to a light-rail station.
Buses run through the outskirts of campus and practically bring you anywhere (for cheap!).
There are ASU shuttles, flash forward/back/McAllister. They bring you around campus and it's convenient when your car is parked far away (ie: Lot 59) at night which are free!
Also free, are the Orbit buses. They can bring you to a lot of popular spots throughout Tempe! (Including Tempe Marketplace)
With all of this available transportation, you don't really need a car!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students wear ASU apparel a lot. Girls sometimes dress super trashy, but it's the desert so they can get away with it. Guys can be the sweetest people or the most self-centered people you will ever meet.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is very expensive the closer you are to the center of campus. Cheapest parking is Lot 59, but they force you to evacuate your car or you will get a fine game nights!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel like the Health Service Center, although they say it's "state of the art", is not that great. Yeah, it's convenient, but I personally rather a personal doctor.
I would not suggest walking alone at night, biking maybe. I bike everywhere.
Bikes WILL get stolen if not locked up properly. Tempe campus is well-known for this.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The Phoenix Metropolitan area is one of the largest in the country. For that reason, there's always something to do in this huge city!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: ASU is an accepting environment for race & sexual orientation! It is so diverse, it's awesome!

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: ASU has the reputation of #1 party school!

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!
