3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's a pretty prominent ordeal, but it's not about the peer pressure. Those who drink or smoke or take pills or whatever, do, but they don't try to coerce anyone into do it with them.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't use all of the athletic facilities, but from what I've seen they're quite nice. We have one of the biggest fitness complexes in the country to the best of my knowledge.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The cost seemed ridiculously too high at first, but then I realized how close it is to my dorms and that I get to keep it there for 9 out of 12 months of the year. It's still really expensive, but it's worth it if you pick a nice spot, I guess. And the keep people who shouldn't be there out fairly well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It never really interested me but a lot of people are really big on it.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My friend went to the health center for a foot injury. They looked at it and said it was just bruised. LOL Her foot was broken.

2 College Freshman

Computers: I have my own computer and laptop. I would suggest you to get the same. Printers are holy when trying to turn in an essay!! The worst problem about ASU is the WIFI. IT SUCKS!!

5 College Freshman

Academics: We are a little community that has GREAT people.

5 College Freshman

Academics: It was harder then I expected but its worth it.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I wanted to go to a festival off campus. I thought I couldn't go, but my roommate showed me how easy the buses were. Its an easy, affordable way to get where you need to be.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live close to school, so I'm not aware of the market. From what I hear, it's definitely overpriced for what you get.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Asu is a definite melting pot. The amount of people on campus make it impossible to not be. everyone is pretty accepting except for one gentlemen who stands outside of the memorial union who exclaims that basically everyone is going to hell.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: ASU is flooded with fraternity and sorority members. They are everywhere which makes the campus looks awfully color coded with matching shirts and arm tans. Frat guys are usually preppy looking with an extreme sense of self confidence. In turn, sorority girls are always lined up snapping selfies. The other 20% of ASU's population rocks a "sparky" tshirt and is pretty average looking.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm rooms are small and resemble a prison. But most classrooms are spacious and clean. Proximity to class is dependent on the dorm.

College Sophomore

Transportation: Never used public transportation. Only know what I've heard.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Tons of people. Gets crowded, but lots of school pride.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: it was a bad experience that many people also found difficult

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: its pretty safe on campus and if youre sick the health center helps

4 College Freshman

Facilities: really nice student union and classrooms with macs evverywhere

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: join a frat, if not its likely you wont get into the dopest parties

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: if you dont live in tempe or downtown you wont have a good experience.

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!
