3 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid representatives were helpful but there was done confusion which caused me a bit of concern. I also did Not receive the assistance that I needed to make my tuition more affordable. I would suggest having ask the paper work needed at hand always because there are often mistakes made on the forms requiring people to provide the information needed all over again. Also, don't rely on the counselors for financial advise. Visit a financial aid representative directly as they are the experts in that area.

Athletics: Our football team definitely has a lorry of super from the student body and the games are always packed. This s it's probably in part due to the access that students have to the tickets. The prices are affordable for students which allows for the games to be regular events people attend. The stadium is well kept and it provides a safe embodiment for everyone tho enjoy the game.

Transportation: The transportation from one campus to the other is absolutely free. Although sometimes there are a lot of people using the shuttle, our is better than having to pay for public transportation. The routes taken by the drivers are also the most efficient ones and the shuttle are typically always running on schedule.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not many people are seen selling drugs. Neither is it common to hear of people on campus abusing drugs. However there is an increase in drug use at apartment complexes and housing failures off campus because of the decrease in surveillance. The drug policy is enforced greatly, however campus police does not have control over what happens off campus. In regards to peer pressure and drugs, it does exist but if student know who to befriend the problem of being pressured into using drugs decreases tremendously.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have the blue light towers that are for emergencies and they are very accessible to all the students. That contributes to a sense of safety because we as students know we can contact security quickly.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It does not affect my campus experience in either respect.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The parking lot on the North side is very badly lit, this parking lot is close to Thunderbird and a busy intersection. I would suggest any student being walked out by another student or by an escort.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my parents so I did not receive or seek any information about off-campus housing.

College Freshman

Majors: I am a freshman so I have only taken prerequisites for my major and not began to take individual classes.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an opportunity to be in an internship.

College Freshman

Campus Dining: I do not live on campus and bring my own food from home.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but have interacted with campus officials and other students in the campus housing enough for the above scores.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was all electronic for the most part as my advisor would not help me with financial aid, at all. She would simply say, "That is a question for financial aid, not me," which was very frustrating.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The area is very spotty as the level of safety and overall atmosphere so the college is in a nice spot but if a student were to travel up two streets, it could change dramatically. The campus seems to be the attraction place for the rest of the community instead of the other way around. From my observation, there is very little to no interaction between locals and students so I have no idea about attitudes toward students.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computer labs have helped me as I have a Mac so when certain assignments needed to be done on a PC, I was always able to access a computer.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The campus was just renovated and this renovation has helped the comfort level of the campus.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the community and programs at my campus, the social scene was an excellent transition into becoming apart of college life.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I commute to campus so I usually eat at home or bring my own food. It does not affect me.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I know there is some drug activity but it does not interfere with my schooling or my friends so I do not feel their is any peer pressure or negative draw.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the small town connections with the students along with the small campus. It makes me feel a part of a university without overwhelming me with a stereotypical college campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is off the charts along with fan support! West doesn't seem to have a student population in varsity sports from the main campus but there is plenty intramural activity.

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!
