3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I was not a fan of the same food every day. I wish there was more of a variety and more options for healthy food besides just salad.

3 College Junior

Diversity: It's about as diverse as a large university in the Southwest can expect to be.

4 College Junior

Academics: There is a lot of variety offered in many different forms of education (online and in-person). However, communications is a big subject, and very popular here, which is one of the reasons I selected ASU.

4 College Junior

Academics: It's a great communications program with an average workload, new facilities and a great support system both through the graduate college in general and my specific degree.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: I am a girl interested in guys. The above survey asked me what I thought about the girls on campus.

Parking: I don't use the main campus for anything. I am based on the West campus, which has ample and convenient parking.

Overall Experience: I don't have a ton of experience with this program, but I chose it because I'm an Arizona resident, and the graduate program has an interesting focus that will certainly help me after I graduate.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options for off-campus housing.

Health & Safety: I don't really utilize the health center, as an off-campus graduate student. Also, in regards to safety, I am based on the West campus, which is smaller, and feels more safe because of that. That said, all my classes are a night, and I feel more safe with other people around.

Drug Safety: I personally don't see any drug use at the school. However, I am not involved in athletics, greek life or even the main campus, so I don't know how other people may view things.

College Junior

Campus Dining: I don't live on campus, and even if I did, it would be on the West campus, which is smaller and has more limited options. I also don't have a meal plan. I am in the graduate program, and am only on campus for school or program-centric events.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are a few different campuses spread throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area. As a student based out of the West campus only, I can only speak to the fact that for my program, I have everything I need in the area.

College Junior

Facilities: I don't live on campus, and even if I did, it wouldn't be the main campus in Tempe, as I'm based out of the West campus only.

4 College Junior

Computers: As a part of the communications program, it's fairly necessary for me to own a computer. I can't speak to other programs, but it seems as though there is enough support on campus for whatever a student may require.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Phoenix is a large metropolis, so there is plenty to do no matter what age you are. The only downside is that because it's so large, you'd better have a car, or good friends with one. Public transportation is getting better, but the city is vast, so it can get expensive - especially if you cab it.

Weather: Phoenix in the summer can be brutal, with temps in the 110s and even 120s, but in the winter, it's the best place to be. Sunny and mild with no humidity? Pretty great.

Nightlife: Mill is very close and people seem to have a great time down there, but it is not a hoity toity area.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They're SO strict about stupid stuff like parking and cheating, but don't seem to care as much about drinking.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Tempe isn't a huge hot spot, but there is a lot of stuff around us. If you're looking for night life, Mill and Scottsdale aren't too far.

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking costs an INSANE amount, and most of the lots are very far away.

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!
