Weather: The heat is unbearable. ONe moment you are clean and then by the time you get to class you look like you swam in a puddle of sweat. That is the only downfall about the weather here in Arizona. It hardly ever rains and when it does people get so excited. The winter time is the weather everyone looks forward too. It doesn't snow but the cold weather is a nice break from the heat. Walking to class in the cold is much more bearable than the heat.

Athletics: Arizona State University has the greatest support and spirit in its sports. We are all die hard ASU fans no matter what the sport is. There is also a lot of involvement in the intramural sports that are on campus. Students are very active and take advantage of the amazing gym and recreation center we have. Football is the main sport here. The love and out crazy student section proves how dedicated we are to our school.

Off-Campus Housing: My roommate and i have been looking for apartments for her for next year and i have noticed that there are tons near campus but the cost is beyond affordable for beginning college students. Although, the apartments are very nice and worth the cost. The convenience is great and safety is good depending on the location. There are some that are safer than others and some that have parties constantly and those that are more mellow. From the few landlords I have met they are very understanding about help about the cost.

Weather: The weather is bipolar. During the fall it gets windy and hot sometimes.

Transportation: There are plenty of options. I ride my bike and find that's the best form of transportation. It's a huge school so riding my bike gets me where I need to be quickly and closer than parking and walking when it is 100 out.

Campus Strictness: I've seen an increase on the campus that makes me feel safer and that the school is standing up for its expectations of the students.

Campus Strictness: Everything is always getting busted, the cops and security are on top of everything around here, they know everything. So if anyone is trying to party keep it on the extreme DL otherwise it WILL get caught.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The Financial Aid I was applicable for, ASU didn't accept it which is really hurting me considering I'm paying for tuition, living expenses and transportation expenses all on my own with no help of anyone else.

Off-Campus Housing: The District on Apache in Tempe is super close to everything no matter which campus you need to get to you can take the ASU shuttle for free and it picks you up down the street from the District which is super convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: ASU is a very diverse school. Especially because the business school is well known, many international students flock to ASU to be a part of it. We have many different clubs that cater to the various ethnic, cultural and sexual backgrounds of the students making it easy for students to find their place at ASU.

Campus Strictness: The campus is beginning to crack down on underage drinking. They have resorted to having undercover cops bust all the tailgates at family weekend, to sitting in the student sections at football games looking for students acting too rowdy.

Nightlife: You can find a party at ASU any night of the week. Usually they are within walking distance from campus which makes it very convenient. The only problem is the police that come out to catch as many underage drinkers as possible which is a buzz kill to the end of the night.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is rather expensive so that is why I choose to live with my parents for the time being. However, they are all very nice and if given the opportunity at a better price I would love to live in the housing. Most offer great amenities, central location, and a great atmosphere!

5 College Junior

Facilities: The student facilities are top of the line! All the way from the classrooms, to the bathroom. Also they have a state of the art on campus fitness center that is really top of the line!

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: They have really cracked down on drug safety this year, especially Sheriff Joe Arpaio. However, there still is a minor drug problem, I have not run into any drugs in my years of going there, however, I have heard from others and would know where to get drugs if I needed them!

Facilities: There are so many things to do at Arizona State University. If you live on campus, there will be some new event happening almost three times a week. There are sporting events to go to which are almost all free for students. Just recently a new addition to the student recreation center was finished, and this place has everything. It has basketball courts, racquetball courts, two pools, places to work out, and just outside are huge fields you can play soccer, volleyball, and football. There are also a bunch of clubs you can join. And sometimes the school you're in within the university will have special events you can attend, with free food and activities, also you get the opportunity to meet others with the same major. There are so many things that go on, it's almost impossible to not find something to do.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I think that the facilities at Arizona State University are above par, however, there are little changes that can be made to make them even better! However, the people that you are surrounded by and the atmosphere that surrounds the school makes those little things very unnoticeable!

College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really eat at restaurants that much, but I do know there a lot of fast food places to eat at. A lot of them are open really late, like 4 in the morning, which is really nice when you don't feel like cooking anything but you still want to eat.

Drug Safety: ASU is a dry campus so there is no alcohol or drugs allowed on campus. Most dorm advisors do a good job keeping that under control

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!
