2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: There is little enforcement of attending classes, which as an adult who has a busy life I appreciate. The campus lets adults be adults, but still enforces the laws as they are needed to be enforced.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Alcohol remains prevalent on campus. However drugs, excluding marijuana are not seen or discussed.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Lighting on campus is prevalent as well as visibility of campus police.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I just switched my major to Biology, so will have to wait and see.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I had no problems getting into my Biology major. The counselors were very helpful.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is very urban and modern. There is Mill Avenue, which is the focal point for many outings, nice eateries, interesting shops, and museums. You can find all sorts of people around Tempe, which is what makes the atmosphere exciting and easy to find a niche.

4 College Junior

Academics: There is a wide array of opportunities at Arizona State University. You're bound to find an internship, research opportunity, or fellowship that interests you. Additionally, the numerous free on-campus tutoring locations that is offered is massively effective for attaining a better understanding of material and reviewing concepts. The professors are typically more than wiling to put the extra effort for you if you merely go up and ask them. It's all about speaking up and being your own advocate because the opportunities are endless and are waiting to be grabbed.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I love the facilities! ASU is literally like a mini town. It has a massive gym, a three story food court with everything from fast food to gourmet vegan food. There are 5 libraries, a general one, a science library, music, and architecture, and Law. There are dozens of green spaces good for quiet studying, and there are campus events almost every day.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Honestly I didn't have any issue with it, and I didn't hear about drug use from anyone else. In the dorms I heard one person talk about weed, but that was it. ASU is a smoke free campus and most of the students don't do drugs, or at least they dont talk about it.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are so many facilities. From the gym, to the computer labs, to the help desks for every class that really help students understand. ASU is full of valuable resources.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They have a wide variety, but the entry forms are all the same and there is no indication on when you find out if you won.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is a nightmare at ASU. An annual pass will cost you around $500-$600, and the lots are on the opposite side of the main classrooms. Id say about a 30 minute walk to the nearest one, so leave early.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Arizona State University is the largest public university in the country, and the campus boasts their 56,000 student level. The buildings are all aesthetically beautiful and large enough to appear like a city. The student recreation center is one of the nicest buildings I've ever been in. Throw in the food court, Memorial Union (Student center), underground library, and all the campus events (athletic events, water slides, clubs to join) and you have one of the best campuses nationwide.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: i think that ASU needs more food choices on campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: both girls and guys are nice and pretty smart. But they really like to party

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: lots of shuttles and easy access to the light rail.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Lots of places to eat and very friendly neighborhood. Lots of traffic though and hard to find parking spaces.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: In the summer months it can be very warm, but perfect from October through March.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: On orientation they try to say that alcohol is not allowed in rooms and they are very strict on campus. I know many friends that stock their fridge with beer. I have not actually started college yet so have no idea on drug scene.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have found that compared to all other university's including the instate university's that ASU gives the least amount of scholarships. I have called a couple of times and the people answering the phone are less than helpful and it has been very frustrating.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I would say that the majority of classes have an average workload roughly 2-4 hours of homework a night.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you live on campus it is convenient to walk. If you live off of campus there are a variety of ways to get to ASU; such as the light rail, car, bike, longboard or walking.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There a variety of places to eat that are cheap and interesting.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I have not been there long but the campus seems to be very diverse.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I have not been on campus long but they seem to have lots of security at all times.

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!
