Transportation: Because of the way the school is structured many important buildings are long walks from certain points on the campus and can be accessed by joining the bus or catching a taxi.

Majors: Many internship/job opportunities are offered here at ASU. I got to work in a cognitive science laboratory with the department of psychology. It was a great experience to prepare me for graduate school.

Majors: Haven't had an "internship", but I have worked as a research assistant. It was a free class, and it gave me hands-on experience.

Majors: The Chemistry program is chock full of kids who think that they are the best and they all think they are going to be doctors. I cannot even begin to explain how annoying it is to be a Chemistry major because everyone talking down to everyone and everything is a competition.

Overall Experience: It takes a special person to want to stay here. I know a lot of people that are transferring and a lot of people who want to graduate from ASU. Regarding the ASU experience, you either love it or hate it. There are so many pros and so many cons that it's hard to really love going to ASU or really hate it. Ultimately, there is no way to truly tell how you feel about going to ASU until you experience it.

Parking: Cost is the absolute negative to parking. If you don't want to feel the pain of forking over hundreds of dollars in parking, I would suggest buying a bike or skateboard.

Off-Campus Housing: As an off-campus student, I would advise you to enjoy your time on campus because living off campus is a constant struggle.

Scholarships: ASU gives out scholarships like candy, the only problem is keeping your GPA high enough to keep the scholarships.

Athletics: If you love sports and working out, then come on down to ASU because this place is perfect for athletes of all abilities and sports.

Health & Safety: ASU is definitely not the best when it comes to health and safety. Just putting that out there.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you aren't in a sorority or fraternity, then it going to be difficult trying to look for places to party it up. My advice is to learn to make friends with people in sororities and fraternities.

4 College Freshman

Computers: You absolutely need a computer to survive ASU! In addition, ASU has a really good wireless connection and there are lots of computer labs all around campus for those who cannot afford a computer.

Local Atmosphere: You can't get overly bored in Tempe when there are so many things to do in the surrounding area. There are tons of areas to hike, shop, eat, play, whatever. You can run out of money really quick in Tempe though!

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!
