5 College Sophomore

Academics: I feel comforatable in my major. Advisors are so helpful, same as teachers if you ask questions. The workload is hard, but I think it prepares us. And the classes are very relevant to my major.

Health & Safety: It is generally safe on campus, but usually there is security depending on what campus you are on.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Always find something to do with friends for underage. Arizona is not known for that many club. Of age usually find something to do on Mill ave. Transportation isn't that hard if you are close to campus or next to lightrail.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of students are social drinkers, but most still dedicate time towards school. Drinking is more visible, than other drugs besides marijuana.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: No discrimination. I am from San Francisco so both areas are diverse, but with different majority races.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If you are doing nothing wrong you won't get affected, but any violation they will hit you hard with a warning, fine, or class. They aren't lenient if you have broken a rule.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For me, my dorm was spacious, very new, and very clean. My floor was really friendly and I made some friends that I still keep in touch with today. The have decent social events weekly and monthly. Trash, laundry, and computer access is all included. Very convenient to my classes.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: have not got a clue

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: the dorms, best/worst options, amenities, social atmosphere, cost, convenience, and ease of the housing process.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness at ASU seems to be relatively average for a large university. Like many schools, they have a strict honor code policy. Drinking and drug strictness is high, but most people are responsible and keep the illicit activity in the dorms or at frat houses. There is a visitation policy (I think), but nobody follows it. There are rarely, if at all, any kinds of protests or demonstrations to speak of. Campus police tend to be strict about smaller issues like parking violations or jaywalking.

Athletics: The athletic program at ASU is one of the best in the country. The school just completed renovations to make the recreation center (SRC) the largest in the country. It has tons of amenities and there are countless classes offered for different workout interest. The playing fields outside the rec center are used perpetually by the students for a number of different sports (football, soccer, volleyball, rugby, lacrosse, running, etc.). Club sports are a huge part of the ASU experience. The students get really involved with a number of different club sports. The students are even more passionate when they go to the games of varsity sports to watch their fellow students play. The school spirit at ASU is some of the best in the country.

Transportation: The public transportation offered in the Phoenix/Tempe area is great. There are a number of cheap (or free, in some cases) shuttle bus and light rail options that can get you most places in the area. The school is very close to the airport, which is convenient.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am still an freshman, so I have not had to opportunity to take courses that pertain directly to my major yet. I am still in the process of completing my general education requirements. I have met some of the faculty for my degree program (Supply Chain Management) and they all seem very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. I hear that the SCM program, although relatively new, almost guarantees placement in a job after graduation. The business school in general works very hard to make sure that students have the opportunity to distinguish themselves and gain entry into a respectable position in the workplace after graduation

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on-campus. I have no experience with off-campus housing or the process involved to obtain it.

Weather: I was laying out at the pool in late January . . . enough said.

Majors: I am still in the process of figuring out which major I would like to pursue and also if I would like to add a concurrent major. Right now, I am enrolled in ASU's W.P. Carey School of Business, a nationally recognized and respected undergraduate degree program. The business program seems very solid and its track record shows a high-placement rate in the work force along with some respectable starting jobs and salaries. I am currently unsure what field I would like to go into, but a degree from W.P. Carey seems to offer a great deal of versatility in the job search.

Majors: The work in the business program is intensive, but from what I have heard, the curriculum and workload prepare students well to go out into the workplace. The business school offers a lot of opportunities to join clubs, meet professionals, get internships, and gain overall workplace know-how and experience. I am still taking lower-level business courses, but I am anxious to see the type of work that is involved in the upper-division classes.

Greek Life: Greek life is huge on campus; aspects of it can be seen everywhere and everybody knows at least a couple people who are involved in Greek life. There are tons of options for both sororities and fraternities.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is a fair amount of illicit activity that occurs in the dorms. Otherwise, it all occurs at frat houses. I hear that, if you are not careful/responsible, campus police will find you easily. Almost everybody partakes in some form or another in some kind of illicit activity, but peer pressure is not overbearing.

A rating of the drug safety would be contingent on what 5 stars refers to verses 1 star--I'm not really sure what rating to give.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat off-campus very often. There are a lot of dining options on Mill Avenue (the Bourbon Street of Tempe), but I generally eat at the dining halls or, if in a rush, I get fast food at the Memorial Union.

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!
