3 College Junior

Computers: The computers here are nice and up to date. But in between certain class periods it gets quite crowded. It would be convenient to have your own computer at times like these. It isn't mandatory to own your own, you just might have to search around other areas on campus to find an available one. The wifi is very fast and up to speed as well as the internet on each computer.

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home 30 minutes away. The commute isn't bad. Without a parking pass you will have to pay out of pocket quite heftily and that adds up quickly.The best possible options are to buy a cheap annual parking pass and take the shuttle busses to campus. The shuttle busses run every 15 minutes and are free of charge.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I've only attended a few bars on Mill Ave thus far, they were nice but nothing over the top to recieve an A.

5 College Junior

Weather: Its almost always sunny here. The winter is nice because you can do a lot of outdoor activities without freezing.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is slightly expensive unless you are willing to walk a couple blocks away.

5 College Freshman

Computers: They're top of the line and run very quickly. They all seem new and pretty.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: At Arizona State I don't hear much talk about drug usually it's just drinking and smoking. And the campus has recently become tobacco free, therefore we will be seeing much less of the around campus. However i believe people are still going to smoke outside of campus.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The school has a good system for shuttle buses but regarding public transportation it becomes a little bit harder to travel to campus.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: At ASU you will see all types of people. It is the most diverse place I've ever been. It has guy and girls from all around the world, with different background. One thing you see a lot regardless of race or background is that people at Arizona State are very active/fit. There is a large population of good looking, well build guys. And same goes for the girls. You can always see them walking around in yoga pants or running shorts, not just because they are very comfortable but because they are ready to be involved in some kind of exercising activity.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school has started implementing the "walk only zone" in which people have to walk their bicycle or skateboards. It really helps to walk around campus without worrying about getting run over by another student riding their bike. The school has posted signs all over the campus and there are security people letting students know not to ride their bicycles in certain areas.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: the sports are a pretty big deal from what ive observed

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Police only get involved when something serious occurs. Other than that it is pretty layback.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Besides the unbearable heat for a few weeks out of the year the weather at Arizona State is all around great for living in the desert during the school year it is usually not to hot or cold.

5 College Senior

Majors: One has the option of online classes or on campus. I love this program and the curriculum is well put together by the nursing department professors and staff. I would do this program all over again if I had to. My career goals are to continue with a Masters degree in Arts in Religion and be able to serve my patients in a holistic way. I have not had any trouble finding a job as soon as I graduated, if anything my employers have been encouraged to hire me because of my desire to complete this online program through ASU

5 College Senior

Diversity: This school serves individuals of different ethnic background, religion and beliefs.

5 College Senior

Computers: I am an online student and rarely do I have issues with system being down, privacy security computer issues. At anytime anyone can contact an ASU representative by chat or phone. They are setup to handle online issues and challenges.

5 College Senior

Majors: This school offers many opportunities for a person who is interested in learning and it has an excellent array of different majors.

College Senior

Parking: I am an online student, therefore I have only gone to campus twice.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Even though I am an online student, I have been to campus twice. I believe the school buildings are beautiful, specially one of its libraries. The convenience of the campuses throughout the Phoenix area makes this school accessible. I lived 3 hours one way from ASU and the online program was a blessing for me. School counselors had pathway agreements with local colleges to facilitate further educational options. I love this school and would highly recommend it to anyone working on earning their BSN

Campus Dining: I am an online student, therefore I am not on campus

Majors: I can't say, because I haven't had an internship, but from my understanding attaining one would be rather easy. The sheer number of oppurtunities ASU offers is overwhelming in certain degree program. I have not held any professional jobs, or internships, and according to the graduate schools I'm planning on attending, it does not hurt my chances for being accepted.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I'm happy with my degree program(Biological Sciences), as it is a stepping stone in the industry to get to any other healthcare related degree program. If I could do it all over again I would've jumped straight to the program I'm in now, and not wasted my time with earlier life decisions that have left me in quite a deep financial sinkhole. Eventually, I plan to attend a University that offers a PharmD program, and my concerns over finding a job once I graduate are minimal to none.

Majors: I'm attending Arizona State University in the Biological Sciences degree program. I will say it is more challenging than one would think going into it, but it is very manageable. The coursework is not too over bearing, and most of the professors are tenured, and have a set curriculum. However, a few of the international professors are very hard to understand, and the fact that ASU's Tempe campus is known as the research campus, the material tends to be biased towards their own research. All in all, ASU is a great school that continually challenges, and expects the student to excel with guidance if needed.

Local Atmosphere: Mill Ave is right by the Tempe campus. The nightlife there is huge.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of apartments and condos near the campus. Even if you live 30 minutes away, the transportation offered is beneficial.

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!
