College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: This isn't relevant to me.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't know, but it seems very hopping!

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship and at this point I am not sure if I will have one or not. As I've mentioned before, I'm an online only student so some opportunities are limited for me. I'm also in the Bay Area so there are a lot of great internship opportunities in this area. Who knows!

3 College Sophomore

Majors: So far, I am very happy with the program as I really want to be able to write as my career choice and I enjoy taking classes at home. I have health issues that may make it difficult for me to get to an actual classroom each day. My main concern is getting a degree in the humanities at a time many of my peers with degrees in the humanities can't find jobs.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I have loved attending Arizona State University online. I love to play on my computer and read, and now I am doing these things and earning a degree for it. It has been an affordable and feasible choice for me.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: One of the great things about Arizona is it has a good amount of sprawl - when I went to ASU for a summer on its physical campus, there were huge parking lots with shuttles able to take me to and from class. Parking was always available.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have no idea about any of this stuff? But there wasn't a selection of an "I don't know option." So I just picked things about randomly - I've never been in a sorority at ASU or known anyone who was. Sorry!

College Sophomore

Academics: To be honest I'm just not that sure? I receive e-mails about events the English department is offering, but I am not able to attend since I am an online only student. It seems like there are a bunch of great activities, however. Meet your professor sessions and various talks.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm an English major in the Online program. So far it is great, as it is very convenient for me. I have a bunch of health issues and I can stay home and work when I'm not feeling well. I've always worked better independently, and I'm an introvert, and I think ASU online really speaks to that.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: As someone in recovery who has attended recovery meetings in Tempe, I can say there is an active young recovery scene around ASU. Even thought this is a party school, you can find other people who don't drink or drug.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Again, I'm an online only student. When I attended ASU in person for a semester in the past, it seemed fairly jockish.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: OK, again, I'm an online only student but Tempe has great restaurant choices. Maybe a little more suburban than the Bay Area, but fairly eclectic for Arizona!

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Again, I'm an online only student...

College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I am an online only student so I can eat at home while still attending class. =] Yay ASU online!

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: most ppl dont drink on campus bc they dont want the hassle of CAs or cant get alch underage, but if you wait til thurs (when parties noramally start) most parties supply you with alch. nobody spikes parties jungle juice, excpet for frats, thats the only case i heard of someone getting roffied, was at a frats party

College Freshman

Greek Life: i didnt rush, but my suitemate is in the biig alpha delta gamma, and shes so-so about it. she has met bitchy people but shes met some cool people too. its expensive (like 1000$) a sems to be in them, but it covers trips, parties, clothes ect. frats are also ok, but they act up alot, they had their old place torn down bc its was grody, but now they live in the various party apt around campus. the frats throw most of the parties not the soros, nd the frats can be iffy about guys getting in so boys, be prepared to have a bunch of girls come with you, have money, or alch/weed to get into a frat party, but theres a bunch of normal ppl parties that let anyone in and are still fun

3 College Freshman

Weather: in the summer its 120 and in the winter its 65. so sunscreen and bathing suits in the summer and uggs tights nd sweaters in the winter. its dosent really rain much, but when it does it normally pours nd lightings then goes away

Campus Strictness: you can drink in your ddorm depeing on who your CA is, and so long as you are crazy loud. i live in a moderatley loud dorm (PVW) and the 6th floor is crazy at night because the CA is normally gone so everyone drinks and runs around screaming. but to smoke cigs you can sit outside, but depending on who is CA at the time, you might get a housing violation, bc your not supposed to smoke on campus. most ppl walk to the stadium or the river to smoke weed. and you CANNOT at al smoke anything in the dorms bc all CAs dont play around with that. at parties if the cops show up, smile wave, walk right and have a big group, bc some police will lie and say 'we just want everyone to leave' but as ppl leave they will breathalize/ fine you. so have a big group in case you all wana inspire a revolt of running away from the cops

3 College Freshman

Athletics: i would suggest getting the 500$ memebership for the games, bc football is a huge part of the campus life as is the basketball i hear. and with football being 25$ a game, its save money come bball season to have bought the pass. EVERYONE is dressed up on football games, so the school is normally a sea of gold or maroon on those days

3 College Freshman

Diversity: ASU lets in alot of international students, so most people know of an international student or, like me, rooms with one. so its deff a diff experience if youve never had to live or communicate with someone who doesnt speak fluent english. most international students are asian or middle eastern. the school is still mostly white, but you will not be the only on of your race, its still a good mix

5 College Freshman

Academics: people study wherever on the campus. so youll see people in the shade lawns or in the libraries at all hours of the day. and hayden library is 24/hrs

3 College Freshman

Academics: my teachers are all very different in their styles. my core bio class is a hetic 4 part class that had two teachers teach each haf of the semester and the first teacher was one of those super smart, but shouldent be teaching, kind of teachers. and the other is one who actually does teach and ask if you understand. my math class is half lecture and half online, so its rather hetic bc some kids are way behind online so her lectures will be way far ahead. but my asian civ is the typical lecture and quiz class that i enjoy

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: theres free buses that take you around the campus, or to streets around campus, and there are commuinty colleges that are close that you can meet the students that go there at parties and whatnot. everyone who lives around here and is into sports generally reps sundevil nation so ASU is top dog out here. the nightlife is great if your a drinker and they finally built a club for the 18+ on mill ave so we dont have to cab it out to scottsdale anymore

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: ive never used to police light system, but if some one is bothering you as you walk back you can hit the button on each other blue light stations so that the police can track where your going on campus and meet up with you to escort you wherever you need to go. Our medical center is small and serene looking, i havent been there yet either but i heard you can get all the basics done and some lab work if needed

4 College Freshman

Facilities: depends on where you are. ASU is always doing something new to the buildings and making solar panel shade spots. the new business building is very eye catching and has brand new computer/ presentation labs in it. manzy is newly renovated and has smart tvs on every lounge floor, study rooms on each floor and a gaming basement teamed up with a small gym

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!
