3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I also haven't experienced this first hand but my friends don't seem to have any complaints about off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The only thing I wish was better clarified was how much work 17 credit hours actually was but other than that I have had a really good experience with ASU.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't currently have a car on campus but I hear its pretty simple and easy to deal with.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Always in investigation leading to capture.

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: On campus = safe. Off campus = not safe.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't pay attention to the sports to much.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Hot 80% of the time

4 College Freshman

Academics: Pretty good all around if you are going there for the right reasons.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Individuals are beautiful because of their diversities, I've met lifelong friends of all different backrounds and personal beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: For those that assume the role and play with passion, it's an enjoyable part of school.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Freedom is always worth it. :-)

College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I do not utilize campus dining.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Being involved in your university will likely surround you with like-minded dating opportunities. Aside from the unavoidable select few, I am confident and pleased with the social setting at this school.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Public Transportation is an area they really need to improve. The light rail essentially goes nowhere and taxi's can get expensive considering how far everything can be.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug culture is pretty bad at ASU. To be fair, they are trying vigilantly to stop it as much as possible.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is usually just offered to freshman.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many options but ASU doesn't exactly promote healthy eating around their campus. You'll have a difficult time finding anything except fast-food chains off campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am so glad that I chose to go to Barrett. The community is amazing and I've met so many interesting people. I've also had some really interesting classes and I've learned more than I expected to in college so far. Going to Barrett is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There aren't any frat houses at ASU anymore, but there is still Greek housing in some of the on-campus apartments. Frats throw wild parties at the off-campus apartments pretty frequently, but parties get busted pretty fast. It is definitely not necessary to join Greek life to have a fulfilling social life.

Diversity: Barrett is whiter than the rest of the university, but there is still plenty of diversity in ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation, etc.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live off campus. There are several luxury apartment complexes immediately off campus like The District, The Hub, etc. but these are super expensive and there are parties constantly. Lots of people live in houses near campus which are pretty cheap and not the best quality, but they get the job done.

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!
