5 College Junior

Nightlife: Mill ave. once you're 21 is like striking gold. Get it while you're young.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Didn't use the transportation too much but from what I heard it was pretty simple.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining hall was okay near most dorms but the honors college has the best dining hall with lots of options and better food. Cost more but was worth it. By the end of the semester you were tired of everything anyways.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: So many different options around campus. Mom and pop shops or chains, they all love asu.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Lots of Greek life but the president of ASU hates Greek life hence no Greek row.

4 College Junior

Weather: Summers are hot until October but it's amazing. Nice weather makes people happier

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Lots of ways to get to parking lots safely, they have safety escort which is run by a fraternity and they'll pick you up anywhere on campus and drop you off anywhere on campus.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The sun is hot but the girls and guys are hotter.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: A lot of buildings are being done or are redone which is nice but there are still some that aren't done and are old with hardly working showers etc.

Drug Safety: Partying is life at ASU and a lot of people do it. But on the other side there are people that don't do it. There hasn't been any instances that I've seen peer pressure, whatever people do is voluntary.

Diversity: I feel like there are tons of different ethnicities and religious views and so many organizations built around them that it's easy to feel at home.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They have a strict no tolerance for alcohol in dorms which also includes their off campus upperclassman apartments which sucks for people who are of age. Most of the time it's more strict in the actual dorms because of more RAs.

Overall Experience: I love my school because we receive a great education and have a lot of options for ways to have fun during college. We also have a lot of options for academic success. We get free tutoring if needed and have an on-campus gym and clubs/sororities that we can join.

Weather: It's mostly always sunny here in Phoenix, so the weather doesn't really affect our college experience. It encourages us to have fun outdoors when not in class.

Computers: It is highly recommended to bring your own laptop to school, but if that is not an option, computer labs are highly accessible as well as computers in the library.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As an active participant in Greek life, I think Greek students enhance the school. We provide a sense of disciplines within academics, philanthropy, sisterhood, and social life.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: ASU is known for its night life and people come from all over the country to experience the fun. There are multiple options for nightlife and there are often concerts and music events such as Soundwave that come to Tempe.

Campus Dining: Campus dining has options, but are rarely available after 9pm. Campus stores provide options for other students, but does not have the healthiest options. There is a vegan restaurant that does accept university money which provides organic and vegetarian meals.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus security is very high and I feel relatively safe walking around during the day. At night safety escort is available to drive you where you need to go so that you don't need to walk home alone, something that is very important to me as a female student.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle is always helpful to get to other campuses and the campus safety escort is available until 2am! ASU cares about the safety of their students.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug use is looked down upon at ASU, but unfortunately people do partake in activities beyond the control of the school. Not participating in these activities is completely accepted and at times revered for the responsibility displayed.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is hardly any judgement towards anyone of varying race, sexual orientation, or economic background. The acceptance at ASU is phenomenal and it makes it very easy to make friends.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is very affordable, very safe, and has parking available for a reasonable price. The housing is right across the street from campus which makes it very easy to walk to classes!

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!
