4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is such a diversity on campus. There is every background, belief, and controversy on earth at the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather never hinders you from doing what you want to do. Occasionally it's cold, hot, and or rainy, but Arizona is not an extreme weather sort of place.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school's greatest strength is the opportunities students get.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different places to go from fast food to a nice down restaurant and chains to local business owners. You get some discounts, and it's very convenient. But it's nothing to rave over.

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: ASU is such a huge university that there is probably the largest diversity you can get in the state of Arizona. There is every group you can possibly think of, and every look, interest, dress, social life, and relationship potentials on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are two main computer labs/ printing locations on campus, but all the libraries have a ton of computers available for students. They have a lot of computers available, and the network reliability, speed, and wireless access are excellent.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are a lot of different ways to travel to campus and around campus. Since the Tempe campus is so big, there is a huge need for all these mediums of transportation. They have shuttles, 3 different bus systems, bike trails, the light rail, cars, and student golf carts.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not use campus housing so I am not aware of the conditions of the dorms.

1 College Junior

Facilities: University classrooms are in desperate need of renovation and cleaning.

3 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the program was fairly easy I just had to send in my official transcripts and work with an advisor.

2 College Junior

Majors: The History major program is a mixed bag. Some of the courses are great and informative while others are boring and repetitive.

College Junior

Campus Dining: I have not used campus dining since the majority of the dining options are bland and similar.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: Many of the campus policies don't have much of an impact on me since I don't live on campus and other policies are just common sense.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of different cuisines around the University, though some of the restaurants are not that high in quality.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is very open and welcoming to students.

1 College Junior

Parking: The costs for parking at the University are insane. They want you to pay several hundred dollars so you can park in one of their lots and then you still have to ride a bike, take the bus, or walk a very long distance to get to your classes.

2 College Junior

Weather: Since the University is in Arizona the summers are almost unbearably hot. In the winter/fall months the temperature is a lot better than other regions of the country. It is cold during the winter, but not to the same extent as other states or even in the northern section of Arizona.

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are frequent drunk driving arrests and fights caused by over use and open accessibility to alcohol.

College Junior

Transportation: I have not utilized the transportation options for the school.

College Junior

Nightlife: I have not checked out the nightlife around my campus since I am spending my nights working on extensive assignments.

1 College Junior

Computers: The University's network, particularly for the library, is horrible. Every time I have tried to use resources on the library webpage I have been directed to a error page. This has given me a great deal of difficulty with trying to write research papers.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall experience at ASU has been a mix of good and bad. Some of the instructors are great they really know what they're doing and have a good teaching method. Other instructors are clueless and have no idea what they are doing and many of the students could do a better job teaching.

College Senior

Greek Life: I don't really interact with these people or anyone at school

College Senior

Guys & Girls: I have no opinion on the guy or girls there mostly go there to study

3 College Senior

Parking: parking permits are ridiculous over priced in my opinion but I guess the college has to make money some how.

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!
