3 College Junior

Facilities: The MU (cafeteria/hangout building) is cramped, dirty and in need of a renovation. But, there are some good spots to sit inside or out and finding social or quiet spots depending on your mood is pretty easy. The libraries are also pretty cramped but not terrible. The athletic center is really nice, newly renovated. Lots of outdoor hangouts and study spots.

Weather: Yes, it gets to be way over 100 degrees in the summer but the buildings are close together and well air-conditioned so you don't have to be out in it very long if you know how to get around. It's only that hot for a few months out of the summer and then is beautiful the rest of the year, not too hot or cold. I think it's way better to have that hot weather than ice cold winters with snow or uncomfortably humid summers.

Academics: There are a few good professors and a few good researchers, but very few who are both. Lots of foreigners that struggle to find the right words to teach with and most classes are too dependent on TA's who have little teaching or even communication skills. ASU accepts just about anyone, so every class is filled with 300+ students of which less than half really care to be there so you have to filter out a lot of distractions from those students if you want to learn anything. I had one professor that flat out said that she had 1,300 students that semester so try not to go to her with questions. ASU pushes its professors hard to much more than teach so the students suffer.

Campus Dining: Mostly fast food/junk food, which gets old. Not very many healthy, inexpensive options but if you're creative you can put something together from the on campus store, POD, at the MU.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The prices are reasonable and there is a large variety to pick from

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I feel like ASU should give way more financial help to out of state students because it is pretty expensive for out of state students compare to in state

Drug Safety: No one pressures you to do drugs or drink alcohol and it is not something that is seen

Campus Dining: There is a coffee shop on campus, bt besides the cafe, you must walk downtown to find other options. Subway and a Mexican Restaurant are closeby, but not always open.

Diversity: Although I attend the downtown Phoenix campus, the demographics of students tend to be very similar.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football is widely celebrated, but you rarely hear or see any advertisement for other sports.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is expensive unless you live in a dingy apartment.

3 College Junior

Academics: Classes are sometimes difficult to get, especially once are you close to graduating.

3 College Junior

Academics: The academics are average. It can be difficult to get classes and your professors are either amazing or don't care at all.

1 College Junior

Parking: Way to expensive!! And far away from classes.

Health & Safety: Although I have never used the Health Services that Arizona State has to offer, they do a very good job in advertising that they are there for students. They offer discounted prices if you enroll in a fairly cheap program that covers you for the semester. As far as the security and police, I think that ASU does a great job. I always see police patrolling around and security is accessible to keep us all safe.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus restaurants at ASU provide probably about the same options as other colleges and universities on average. They tend to be fast-food chains or restaurants who have the same prices as everywhere else. However, the Mellow Mushroom is one of my favorite places to eat and their are only a few of them in Arizona, one fairly near the campus. They have great deals for students and Happy Hours.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at Arizona State are a point of pride and varsity sports are a pretty big deal. The football team is nationally ranked and the school truly does bleed the school colors, maroon and gold, when it comes to game days. The facilities are made accessible for everyone and provided for free for students through their tuition. Everything is up-to-date and monthly health programs encourage students to work out in groups and motivate them to keep coming.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Frats and sororities everywhere. But there is a good amount of artsy, skater guys too.

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!
