5 College Junior

Academics: The psychology program is great. The advisors are very helpful an they help you pick out the classes that you need. There are internships available and programs that allow you go spend a day with a Psychologist and see wha tthey do on a day to day basis. The facilities are great, library is great also. As far as workload goes it depends on the teacher but its doable even with a full time job.

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors for this semester, which again is my first are wonderful! They are very passionate about the subjects they teach and very knowledgeable. The only complaint I have is with regards to one online class I am taking. The assignments are due on friday nights and i much preffer them to be due Sunday nights that way I can do my homework for in-campus classes during the week and for online classes on the weekend.

Majors: Getting into the Walter Cronkite School of Mass Communication and Journalism was an easy process. All i had to do was uphold a high enough GPA and apply to the school. Most important criteria is to just have a 3.3 GPA or above. If you have any questions about the process i would suggest calling an advisor of the school, they are always very kind and helpful.

Majors: I have not yet had an internship through ASU but i do plan to have one by next school year. I don't have any concerns finding an internship because ASU offers plenty of them so there is many options to choose from. My major is Broadcast Journalism so i feel it is important to have a few internships under my belt.

Nightlife: Mill Avenue which is the hotspot is located not even a mile away from ARizona State's campus. So whoever is of age can conveniently go on over to Mill and have a great time. Underage night life usually occur at apartment complexes which is nice because you have a very nice amount of space that isn't hazardous. Most students either use designated drivers or taxi's to get to and from these parties.

Greek Life: Being that i'm apart of greek life at Arizona State University i believe that it is fabulous. Greek life does a lot for the campus and community and we are recognized for that. My first year spent at ASU i was not in greek life and i viewed greeks as cool people who do a lot for the community and they have a sense of unity among themselves. Most non-Greeks are indifferent about Greek life here at ASU. The only downside is that we have no Greek housing at ASU.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Being that so many students attend Arizona State University parking is in high demand. There are plenty of parking spots in the parking structures for students who live on campus but the price for a parking permit is very pricey. ASU is very strict with parking and will not hesitate to ticket/fine you if your car is not where it is supposed to be. I am a sophomore and still have never had a car on campus. I find it easy and convenient to bike everywhere, everything you need is relatively close.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: After living in dorms freshman year, everyone is itching to live on their own. Off-Campus Housing for the most part is very convenient being that there is plenty of places to choose from that are located very close to campus. The prices do vary from expensive to not so expensive but it just depends how close to campus you are. Landlords for the most part are relatively good, most are ran by college students so it can get a little messy at times. Most Off-Campus Housing has security roaming around so it is safe to live off campus. If you need help paying for rent, you can apply for finical-aid and if it is received you can use that money to pay for rent.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe walking around campus alone. If i were to feel unsafe at anytime there are poles scattered throughout the campus that have emergency buttons on them and if pressed, the ASU campus police will be there to assist within minutes. Also at night there is "Safety Escort" which is a van that will pick you up wherever you are on campus and take you to your designated location all within campus, which is also very convenient.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The student life at Arizona State University is one of the main reasons i still attend this school. The atmosphere is fabulous, every student has a lot of school spirit and is not afraid to show it. Football games are always packed to the brim with roaring fans, and not to mention it is a clean very spacious stadium. The students have nicknamed the Hayden Library, "Club Hayden," because that's where you can find everyone at anytime of the day being that it is open 24 hours for students and staff. If you are going to the Memorial Union there is always something going on there, whether it's live music, or protestors speaking, it is always packed with people eating, studying, catching up with their friends or just grabbing a quick coffee and bagel before their next class. ASU has many many traditions that till this day still take place. Every year at the beginning of first semester the student body white washes the "A" on A Mountain. It symbolizes the start of a new year and new beginnings. Arizona State University is the best University in the nation.

Campus Dining: There are lots of options on campus and many more that are walking distance

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!
