3 College Freshman

Weather: Nice and warm up to a point. You get used to the heat after a while, but always wear good shoes(thick sole) if you don't want to get a second degree burn on the soles of your feet.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The cops are out to get you at this school. I have received two minor in consumption charges since school started four weeks ago. I wasn't even acting slightly intoxicated for one of them and was pressured into taking a field sobriety test. Most officers are undercover and for the 2013 school year have teamed up with ASU to bust as many people as possible. NO ONE is safe.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Great restaurants with a good ethnic variety off-campus. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing is easily accessible but quality is not all that great.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Campus dining is very convenient and there is a good variety of places to eat throughout the campus.

The ASU food truck is pretty cool too

3 College Junior

Computers: over crowded computer labs, great technology variety from dell computers to mac computers available for use

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Great selection alot of fast food chains, not many healthy selections

Athletics: Loose alot of games, but athletics are still a huge part of campus life

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: At first, the financial aid process was intimidating! I didn't really know where to start since my high school doesn't prepare us for the application processes. I ventured out on my own, did a lot of research....i would strongly suggest high schools to offer mentors for their students that are interested in attending college! Perhaps, contacting former high school students that are knowledgeable about the ENTIRE application process (preparing for SAT's, scholarships, deadlines for applications....) My former high school is a charter school with no 'guidance counselor'. So, after forging ahead in this journey by myself (with the help of my parents) I feel like i could/should write a manual to help others out!
Receiving financial aid from my university was actually very painless. They have a efficient system that allows you to track what you qualify for, deadlines to apply and many opportunities to contact and discuss your financial aid needs.

4 College Junior

Weather: Tempe Arizona, I'd give an A+ if summers weren't so dang hot. The rest of the years is amazing.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are really good computers in some rooms and labs and some outdated and slow equipment. Overall though they all work and use modern platforms.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I have a 30+ minute commute and park, I then ride my bike from the stadium to campus. There are a lot of buses for those who don't want to ride.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I have not experienced a heavy abundance of drug usage at ASU although I have heard there are groups who do use drugs. Mostly drinking occurs.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I am new to the campus and haven't experienced very strict policies.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: At ASU there are so many different types of people that are into just about everything. No matter what kind of person you're looking for, odds are you'll find them at ASU.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Better Than I Expected – Aside from a few hiccups with some of the amenities, living on-campus at Arizona State is an enjoyable experience. Mostly quiet and there's enough space for about anything you want to do.

Weather: Arizona State is in the middle of the Sonoran desert, so it gets quite hot during the spring and summer with the coldest being in the 40's during the winter months. All buildings are air-conditioned and they are pleasant rests from the outside.

4 College Senior

Computers: Up-To-Date and Efficient – The campus computer lab has modern models running the most recent software, and each of them is fast. It's a very efficient way of getting schoolwork done. Crowds are common during the weekdays, but the weekends are often more quiet.

4 College Senior

Majors: Engaging and Intuitive Enough – Taking an English major covers many courses and are all engaging and will cause students to analyze and voice their opinions. It's well suited for people who love to discuss things.

4 College Senior

Majors: The classes are fun and engaging with a variety of electives available for other fields. The professors have a broad history and all have unique teaching styles. Given this is an English major, be ready for a lot of reading and writing.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: At the Arizona State University Tempe Campus, there are more choices than anyone could ask for. Good dining halls, and there plenty of chain restaurants on campus or withing walking distance as well.

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!
