5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and it is really convenient and close to campus and mill ave which is nice however, the cost is ridiculous. As I do not have a car, I had to stay close to campus so the prices are extremely high but I am paying them because I don't want to mess with public transportation to get to class.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Now that I live off campus, off campus dining is essential. There are so many options and there are places everywhere.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you really would like to party, you can find somewhere pretty easily here at ASU. If you are a guy, it is a little tougher because everyone wants more girls at their parties but you can still find a place.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration is pretty cool until you break the rules.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Scholarships literally save my life as a college student. College is not cheap by any means so receiving financial aid that you don't have to pay back is so nice and convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The meal plans are nice because you don't have to cook but the choices aren't that great. If you are in a mood for something, you usually can't find that at a dining hall but the M&G does save lives because you can spend it on higher quality food.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I really liked living on campus for my first year because I got to meet new people and people were super close to me that were in the same class as me so we could work on homework together and hang out all the time.

5 College Senior

Academics: The math department and faculty are great, classes are appropriately difficult, students are fun, lots of opportunity. This is all due to the department/faculty. The department gets little support from administration (after all, it doesn't bring in much money). The math building is falling apart. Bathrooms constantly flooded, entire building's drinking fountains out for almost a year, consistently broken elevators, poor ventilation/AC.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Nothing very notable. Seems like an average place to meet guys/girls.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The faculty are great. Research opportunities galore. The administration is not. Michael Crow is like Michael Bloomberg on steroids. Too big. Lots of bureaucracy. Lots of fees. Wasn't allowed to test out of classes in many cases, when it seemed completely reasonable. Was forced into classes that were a complete waste of time.

Overall Experience: Classes aren't always taught well (community college classes are much better), however ASU's emphasis isn't teaching. If you're interested in research, you will love it. Many classes are taught by world class professors. Take advantage of their office hours. Ask them how to get involved in research. You will be glad you're at ASU if you just take advantage of its best aspects.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good mentoring on campus, though the best mentoring (by far) comes from faculty advisors which are specified on department websites.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I have had great experiences with members of Greek Life, having attended events and made good friends. I never joined a frat. I wouldn't, given the atmosphere on campus. It seems a vast majority of students look down on fraternities.

College Senior

Athletics: Never attended a sporting event. Many people are way into it. Gym is pretty nice.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Decent options for off campus housing. It gets expensive the closer you get to campus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good dining options off campus. Quite a few spots have been featured on Food Network.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: The typical party scene at ASU is kind of gross, though probably what a lot of people are looking for. Fortunately, ASU is also diverse. Lots of alternatives.

1 College Senior

Administration: ASU was always great about busting people for biking in no walk zones, smoking on campus or going one minute over at parking meters. When I actually needed help from campus police they were far from helpful.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I was put on some kind of "academic hold" that blocked my loans one semester due to a "computer glitch." Took an entire day to get a supervisor who could fix the issue. Generally felt unsupported.

5 College Senior

Campus Food: I've visited several colleges, and none come close to the dining options at ASU. There's a fancy (but affordable) restaurant upstairs in the MU, called Engrained, that puts every other campus' dining to shame.

College Senior

Campus Housing: Did not live on campus.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home in another city and I commute so I can't honestly comment on the off-campus housing, other than what I have heard friends say.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many of the local places give out coupons for college students so we can get cheap deals.

College Junior

Party Scene: I live off campus and I do not party with the college crowd.

4 College Junior

Administration: Teachers are willing to setup additional meetings to help students if the student cannot make the teacher's set office hours. This has been very helpful.

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!
