Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I honestly feel safer on campus than anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I really enjoy Tempe. Its a great place to live.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: ASU is now a Tabaco free campus, but of course people do still smoke and do drugs. It really is a personal thing. If you don't want to do it, then you don't need to. It's not like someone is going to make you do it.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I would say that they use the latest technology for the computers. It has good speed and there are enough of them. Maybe just a little bit more would be nice, but usually they the students have their own laptop.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus, but I did go to a lot of the dorms and I would say that the overall quality is pretty good.
