5 College Freshman

Local Area: The Culture passes provided by ASU are great I get to see many facilities for free and there are so many sporting arenas around. Also the super bowl was big here and it was so much fun, not many can say they live and go to school in the middle of that.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I really enjoy the local atmosphere surrounding the campus. My only complaint is that there isn't very much scenery, but that is because we live in the middle of a downtown city. But there are hikes on the mountains only a short drive away.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Small and quiet campus but decent amount of fun things to do

4 College Senior

Local Area: Students here get the real metropolitan experience, not just college attractions, restaurants, etc. Some of the transient population can be hostile downtown, especially if you're female, but take the free intercampus shuttles to avoid most of that near the light rail station.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are many places to shope and many activities and athletics.
