3 College Junior

Majors: My major is Management within the W.P. Carey School of Business and I have had an okay experience thus far. This is mainly because i've had difficulty getting past the prerequisites & required math courses. All of the classes in WPC are no cake walk, but if you put in the effort (as we're supposed to), you will learn a lot. It's a lot of work & you definitely have to commit yourself if you want perfect grades. Our career center & all of the other resources are great & people really do get internships from going to career fairs.

Transportation: Cars are great if you can afford parking passes. The bus shuttles are really convenient if you are coming from the far side of campus. The light rail is the best way to get to campus because it is fairly cheap and it passes right next to campus where you can get off and walk to class. Walking is not bad during the winter, however when it is a season other than winter, then it gets really hot to walk. Other than that transportation is available and convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Student dine ins are good in food quality but there are no student discounts and the choices are not that healthy. Fast food restaurants are everywhere and it is easy to get sucked into buying food from there. There are healthier places to go but they are either far from campus or hard to find. Not to mention kind of expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The schools facilities vary depending on where you go. The places that are more newer will have great spot for doing homework, hang out with friends, and do almost anything you want. Public facilities are nice and are not bad. The school is very diverse and you will always find people to talk to. In all the school is great no matter where you go.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town is very nice, there is a lot of shopping and attractions because it is right near downtown/mill ave.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene at ASU is big a lot people are doing drugs, but there's never peer pressure to do drugs if you don't want to.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I think that the girls are just hot. We girls wearing what they want to wear. They believe they are an adult. There are a lot of Asian girls that are very shy but really great looking. So there it is!

Facilities: It is amazing. The Student Recreational Area offers a great variety of activities that involves sport, bodybuilding, etc. You would not get hungry around the campus because there will be vending machine around every corner. The MU which offers mostly the popular food chains are well-organized and the service is excellent. There are many activities that I'm sure are fun, but not yet heard of.

3 College Junior

Academics: Being a Computer Science student in Arizona State, I would say that the workload and assignments that they give will be a big part of your education. They can be hard to impossible if you have no experience on it yet. But a lot of professors are willing to help students in their homework and sometimes make it quite enjoyable. Though I have not attended a single job seminar yet, they always feed you with the news and send you emails regarding to it if you are interested.

3 College Junior

Academics: I study at Arizona State University as a Computer Science major. There are several campuses and sadly, my major is only offered in the main campus which takes me an hour and a half to get to. But the campus is not as bad compared to the other ones. The professors are always prepared every class and offer extra help in their office hours. They assign homework that might be time consuming, but you get this feeling of accomplishment every time you finish it.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: On the Tempe campus, there are many parking lots and garages that are safe and close to school. The only problem is that it is very expensive and they do not offer any type of student price. This forces students to park somewhere else due to the expensive prices.

5 College Senior

Weather: The awesome thing about arizona is the weather is very easy to deal with. Most days are just warm which can easily be avioded by being in the shade. The weather patterns are rarely spontanesous. It rains during the monsoon season, it is cold in the winter, and warm in the summer. Weather isn't an issue.

4 College Senior

Transportation: I have only used the light rail when it comes to public transportation. I really like the like rail becuase a train comes by every fifteen minutes. That is very convient. The light rail runs from 5 am-2am on the week days thus making it so a person rarely need to worry if the light rail is running.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe at the Downtown Campus. There's security around if you need them, they're always roaming around campus. I've never had any problems or felt unsafe.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The environment is great there and everyone is nice

3 College Senior

Athletics: I don't pay much attention to college sports, however much of the student body love our teams. I sometimes even catch myself checking for scores on my phone (shh don't tell anyone)

3 College Senior

Academics: While I am glad to be in my current program with no regret of choosing it, my specific major can be tough at times. As an interdisciplinary studies major, I take classes from two different departments (Film and Business). I haven't had too much trouble getting into classes on the business side (a few overrides here and there), however, the film side is a different story. I am required to take a set amount of upper level courses to fulfill my degree requirements, and all of these courses require a department override for me to enroll. What makes it hard is the professors give priority to "students within the film program" leaving me with whatever scraps remain 2 weeks prior to the start of classes. I love the classes, just wish they were a little more accessible, especially since I also need them to graduate :/

Computers: I usually prefer using my own computer, however I have had experience with a few campus computers as well as the film lab. The only problem I encountered occurred with FCPX in the film lab, when I discovered the lab's software was not up to date, meaning I could not open my FCPX project I had been editing on my home computer.

4 College Senior

Academics: I transfered to Arizona State to pursue their Interdisciplinary Studies program(Business and Film Production). I have completed 1 year of classes and I have yet to encounter a professor or class that I have regretted taking. Every teacher I've had exhibits a genuine passion for the topic at hand, which makes learning and assimilating new information much easier.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The downtown campus is extremely new, all the buildings are kept in wonderful shape. As far as unique opportunities go it is a positive that there are multiple campuses all around the Phoenix metro area.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Considering the immensely large student body naturally there are a lot of cultural backgrounds. Also there are many students who are studying abroad from other countries. The majority of my student teachers were not from the United States. I would say the diversity is pretty good.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I only experienced the housing on campus via my friends who staying in the dorms. From what I witnessed it as clean, safe and close to classes. There wasn't an amazing amount of space but I don't know what dorm has such space. When you stay in the dorms you are privy to social events and in a good position to find help with your academics

3 College Senior

Computers: you pay for the paper. You would think that would be taken out of the astronomical amount of tuition that you pay however the computers work pretty well. The network was only hacked once severely putting online schooling at a temporary halt.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus nor do I currently know anyone that is therefore, i could not provide a fair rating

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: There are a few places close to campus. The school dining offers a variety, with students and money making in mind.

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!
