3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I have not come across any policies that affect my academic or social life. Parking is the most regulated policy on campus. If you park in the wrong sport you will get a ticket!!

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: The dining halls on campus provide a nice variety of dishes and offers a number of specials each day from meatless entrees to tailgating food on the weekends. They're next to the student dorms, so convenience is a big factor.

4 College Senior

Athletics: There is a variety of athletic sports and the Twitter handles keep everyone up to date. The fitness center on each campus provides a variety of programs and the equipment is very reliable.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The process can be a little bumpy, in that they may not get back to you quickly and there is no guarantee you'll get the accommodations you want or enjoy the one you do get. Typically I've been satisfied with the room I get and I make a good situation out of it. Only caveats can be the occasional pest problems and fire alarms, but the maintenance crew responds in timely fashion.

5 College Senior

Transportation: The campus shuttle runs between the four campuses every hour and has a handful of stops at each campus. They're usually clean, typically peaceful, and equipped with Wi-Fi. The light rail station on the border of the Tempe campus provides a nice link to the rest of the city along with the Valley Metro and Orbit shuttles.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a decent number of ethnic backgrounds, body types, and sexual orientation on campus. I don't recall any severe cases of conflict over the past three years but going outside of campus might make people a bit wary, especially in the Tempe area.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love ASU and all of the great opportunities the school has to offer. Although it would be nice to go out of state away from home, the cost is not affordable in my situation. ASU offers an affordable close to home education that has many nearby on and off campus activities to participate in daily. The staff at ASU is for the most part very helpful, friendly and supportive.

College Junior

Computers: I have not used the schools computer labs or printers, but I have used the WIFI to connect my phone and it has been very reliable.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I would say social media shows a lot of negative light on the school drinking problems. If it weren't for the media putting the information available, the problems associated with drinking on campus would probably go unnoticed.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The Downtown and main Tempe campus at Arizona State University offers a variety of eating options. There is everything from bars, to healthy food stops! Whether you are wanting a beer and wings or salad and protein shake, there is a place in the area! There is also a wide variety of Mexican, Italian, greek, indian and many other ethnic dining options within a close vicinity of campus to choose from.

3 College Sophomore

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: this town is beautiful, only a few hours away from many big cities. Not much to do in our own town but it is not so bad when you think of all of the things this town provides

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: first year and second year freshman for this campus lived in the days inn, it was convenient for the freshman because we had no security until the end of the year but had many issues with the housing.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: i like the major i am in but the only issue is it is only online at other ASU campuses. I would choose this major again if i had the chance it is a very insightful class and i learned alot.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: small campus, no health office, but campus does have security that is on campus all hours to keep everything in order. town is very safe so is the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: new students at ASU lake Havasu receive 1,000 dollars from the campus, but besides that scholarships are harder to obtain because that tuition for this campus

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: not a convenient transit/bus system but driving around town on your own is not hard at all.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: need more students to have a bigger variety of on campus dining.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Havasu does not have many things besides bars that are open late, tons of places to find a late night drink close to campus and easy access to find a cab or a company that will drive you and your car home

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: small campus, not very diverse but as the campus grows more diversity will come

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: this ASU satellite campus is small but the atmosphere is comforting, it is a great start when choosing a college. It has lower tuition prices, smaller classes, nice staff, and the best part would be the lake.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: houses and apartments are inexpensive when renting with others, low prices for housing compared to bigger cities.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Havasu has many mom and pop restaurants that are inexpensive and delicious but not many places that stay open during convenient hours.

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!
