2 College Junior

Diversity: Although I attend the downtown Phoenix campus, the demographics of students tend to be very similar.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football is widely celebrated, but you rarely hear or see any advertisement for other sports.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is expensive unless you live in a dingy apartment.

3 College Junior

Academics: Classes are sometimes difficult to get, especially once are you close to graduating.

3 College Junior

Academics: The academics are average. It can be difficult to get classes and your professors are either amazing or don't care at all.

1 College Junior

Parking: Way to expensive!! And far away from classes.

Health & Safety: Although I have never used the Health Services that Arizona State has to offer, they do a very good job in advertising that they are there for students. They offer discounted prices if you enroll in a fairly cheap program that covers you for the semester. As far as the security and police, I think that ASU does a great job. I always see police patrolling around and security is accessible to keep us all safe.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus restaurants at ASU provide probably about the same options as other colleges and universities on average. They tend to be fast-food chains or restaurants who have the same prices as everywhere else. However, the Mellow Mushroom is one of my favorite places to eat and their are only a few of them in Arizona, one fairly near the campus. They have great deals for students and Happy Hours.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at Arizona State are a point of pride and varsity sports are a pretty big deal. The football team is nationally ranked and the school truly does bleed the school colors, maroon and gold, when it comes to game days. The facilities are made accessible for everyone and provided for free for students through their tuition. Everything is up-to-date and monthly health programs encourage students to work out in groups and motivate them to keep coming.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Frats and sororities everywhere. But there is a good amount of artsy, skater guys too.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are tons of freshman dorms, and for the most part they have some pretty nice activities. Hassy and Barret are the best dorms to live in, and they all have some source of food relatively close.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus police have started to crack down because at the beginning of every school year kids get crazy. As the year goes on it dies down and it isn't that bad. They also send out text reports for anything from a gas leak to a shooting near by.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Arizona State offers a lot of parking options, but they are all costly and some days if you come during the rush of classes, it can be hard to find a parking spot.

Local Atmosphere: Tempe is a very festive location with many different experiences available. From its proximity to Tempe Town Lake, to the variety of bars and restaurants on University Dr, ASU is in an ideal location. The only downside is it is located in the middle of a bustling city, without much aesthetic appeal.

Scholarships: So far the process has been the easiest that I have experienced to date. Almost all I was able to complete online. I only wish there were more scholarship opportunities available.

Drug Safety: I have never seen any drug issues at the West campus. I think I've heard of one or maybe two incidents at the Tempe campus but they were handled very well by campus security and the local police department.

Facilities: The west campus is real easy to get around in. It's small, one of the things I loved about it. I didn't have to worry about getting lost. They are really good on the first couple days of school to have some people outside helping you find classes if you need them too, but since we only have 4 buildings that hold classes and they're all right by each other, it's hard to get lost and not find what you need. The lecture halls and class sizes are done really well and there's enough room to move around in when needed. Also in every class there's more than one handicap seating available and I found that to be really nice.

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!
