4 College Junior

Academics: General education is not difficult, specialty schools are key for advanced academics

Parking: Parking at any university is going to be expensive which was the only problem I had with their parking. The cheapest lot is about a ten minute walk but well worth it if you carpool with others. Once you have figured out the layout of the school and where your classes are you learn different ways to park and places to park.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: There is a great environment at ASU. There are tons and tons of students who live on campus, or close to campus, that creates an atmosphere that you can relate too. There are mostly College students that live in the town (Tempe) so your neighbors are your friends, and your not having problems with your living situation.

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for three years and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I highly recommend freshman living on campus in order to meet new people and experience what it's like. My sophomore and junior year I lived in upperclassmen dorms which were like apartments. I absolutely loved it all three years I lived on campus!

Greek Life: At Arizona state university the Greek life seems to be a big part of the school. It costs a lot of money in order to stay in Greek life but most of the frats and sororities are helpful to other students and the community.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Transportation is pretty good around Tempe. We have buses that run regularly as well as the light rail that runs to campus. ASU also has a safety escort that runs until 2am and will pick you up in the middle of campus and take you back to your dorm or to your car in the parking garage.

4 College Senior

Facilities: At the beginning of fall semester every year they have a tradition where all the students go and paint the A on 'A Mountain', everyone walks up and splashes white paint onto the A. It is a really cool tradition.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a good amount of aid the first years and now they take money away that i need because i do not want to accept a loan. I do not think that is acceptable.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: cost is expensive and having a roommate is a must.

4 College Junior

Academics: Arizona State is top 100 colleges and offer many online degrees.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You can go nearby the Tempe campus and go to Mill Ave and enjoy Hooters and other nearby bars and restaurants. There is a variety of food at Tempe Marketplace.

4 College Junior

Academics: I have had professor's who are passionate about their careers and have inspired me to seek careers after college.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are always local festivities happening, there is professional baseball, basketball, football and soccer available for attractions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I do not feel unsafe on campus. There are email alerts about problems on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I feel there are a variety of restaurants near campus sites.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The campus is really large and in the Summer, the heat definitely makes it difficult to get around. Just a few minutes outside is hard in 100+ degree heat.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There is a wide variety of people at ASU and there are many clubs and organizations that provide representations to many of the ethnicities and religions.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Never lived in it. There are good housing and bad housing. Depends on which one you get into.

3 College Senior

Majors: ASU is a huge schools with lots of majors. They have very good majors and I suggest looking into them. Most of the good majors are actually in the Tempe campus compared to all the other campuses from what i know

1 College Senior

Weather: It is extreamly hot most of the year and although it doesn't snow in the winter, it does get extreamly cold.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: People are very fun and they care about their education but they also want to socialize and party non stop

1 College Senior

Scholarships: I am a full time student who has absolutely no help from my parents but because I'm considered dependent from the government, I can no longer afford school. The financial aid office has offered zero advise or help and even told me once that "I may need to reconsider getting a degree if I can't afford it."

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: The dining is great. There are many options in the student union but it is mostly fast food. If the variety of food in the union isn't what you crave chances are you can satisfy your craving in one of the vatiety of resuraunts in Tempe that are near by.

4 College Senior

Academics: I just completed my first year at Arizona State University and it was amazing. I think that our academics are spectacular. ASU does have its reputation as a party school, but with 70,000 students ASU can be whatever you make it and really, that's what college is about. The school provides all of the resources and it's up to us -- the students -- to mold our experience in order to gain the best reward.
I am a theatre major so my classes aren't as academically grueling in the stereotypical sense, but I have found that professors are almost always willing to lend a helping hand as long as you speak up! Many of my professors have even taken time to meet with me outside of class and given guidance on everything from my latest paper to how to make reasonable living post graduation.
I think often times people have the idea that ASU isn't a very academically sound school because we have such a high acceptance rate. The reason we have such a high acceptance rate is that 1) we have the resources to provide for such a great number of students, 2) we don't compare students against each other, and 3) our specialized programs, colleges, and majors have extra requirements making them more difficult to get in to.
Like I said before, ASU has no shortage of resources, so students are never left completely to their own devices. Students work as tutors in writing and math to help their peers achieve academic success. We also provide academic advisors to keep students on track for graduation as well as the myASU page, which allows students to mark their progress and easily see if they've gone off-track.
College is all about what you make it, but if you're willing to work hard and be knowledgable of the resources available you'll find that ASU can open countless doors.
GO DEVILS!

Weather: Personally I love the heat but for those who aren't looking for some sun then avoid Arizona state. It stays hot here until October, but cools down nicely. It actually gets pretty cold during January and February, but then the temperatures stays nice until late spring. Another fortunate aspect is there is no bad weather here. Maybe a few dust storms throughout the year, but those are harmless. It could rain a little more though, it is a very dry state. Overall if you're looking for good weather Arizona State is the place to be.

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!
