4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are usually plenty available, and although they may take a couple minutes to start up, the speed is just fine afterwards. Printing is fairly cheap too.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Downtown has a lot of cool places to hang out, and the light rail is super helpful to get to other places like Tempe! There are a ton of cultural passes to museums and art galleries, events such as First Friday, restaurants and many more events that the school puts on itself!

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The security staff at Arizona State University sure know how to keep our campus together when it comes to drugs and alcohol. The students know the rules and the possible consequences they would face if they were ever caught in possession of these substances. The scene on our campus is so warm, clean, and give you a welcoming feeling that you would never in a million years think that there is any drinking or drugs going on within the campus grounds.

Weather: Living in California my whole life and making the transformation from the living 10 minutes from the coast and moving to the desert was very different. The heat in the summer gets so hot that sometimes you do not even want to step outside. Not only does it get extremely hot, but it can also get extremely cold. Especially during winter. It was definitely an experience that I wont ever forget.

Scholarships: My mother is a single parent and sending me to college has been a financial burden for her. Because we did not apply for any financial aid, we had to take out multiple loans for me to attend Arizona State. My first semester, I tried my hardest to receive the best grades I could to apply for scholarships to help my mother pay for my education.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Arizona State University has 4 campuses, and I am located in the Downtown Phoenix. The local atmosphere is great. There is always something to do, whether its baseball games, basketball games or even concerts. You can never miss out on having a great time whenever you go out.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: ASU is one of the top party schools in the country. There's always access to alcohol and some drugs if you are looking for it. However, if that's not your scene, there is always clean and sober things to do on and off campus.

College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car this year and don't deal with parking but if you live on campus and don't live near the Phoenix area, a parking pass really isn't worth the $500-$700 a semester.

Health & Safety: There are emergency police poles every 100 feet or so and there is a 24hr safety escort service so I feel pretty safe and secure while on campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The light rail is the best public transportation available if you are traveling to the airport of off campus. It goes all the way to downtown Phoenix and runs until about 1 or 2am on weekends.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is amazing especially when you get tired of dining hall food. There are a few places that also deliver and stay open late for those late night munchies or study nights.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a great amount of diversity of campus. No matter what race or religion you are there will be people just like you no doubt.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I mean, our football team was one game away from the Rose Bowl this year and Todd Graham, the head coach, was voted coach of the year so ya, our sports are top notch.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I will not be living off campus until next year but there are so many options. The closer to campus you are the more expensive living will be but there are less expensive options that are only a mile or so away from the school.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am a biomedical engineering major and I love it. The professors are great and the workload isn't overwhelming but it's still rigorous enough for engineering.

Academics: The school of engineering which I am in has countless people helping out as well as many helpful courses that get you right on track. I started out with three engineering classes just in my first semester and you don't see that at just any school.

Computers: As far as computer availability and support goes, we have the best. There are various labs, computing commons and libraries that have many computers at your disposal. The wifi however is not that great so if you have your own laptop I would highly suggest buying an ethernet cord.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Our gym just got renovated this year and has a brand new weight room, basketball courts and cardio machines, it's huge! All the facilities are up to date and there is always something to do while on campus.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Being in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, I have the best program out there. Professors are very helpful and I have felt engaged and involved since day 1.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Mill Ave. is walking distance and has tons of bars and clubs for those that are 21+. If you are 18-20, there are a few hookah bars around and there is ALWAYS a party either on campus or within a few miles of campus.

Campus Dining: For dining hall food it isn't THAT bad but the quality will really depend on where you live on campus.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: ASU is amazing and lives up to it's party school rep. If you are looking for your typical big state school, ASU is definitely the place for you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness at my school isn't overwhelming, but it is just enough to keep the students in line.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Athletic center is huge but there are still so many people at the university that it is very crowded near free weights, machines, or treadmills. However, the competition on the basketball courts is fantastic.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The academic programs are great, especially the BME courses since this is a major that a lot of students are beginning to choose. You can basically go up to anyone in your classes and have a conversation with them about similar interests.

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!
