3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There's not really any Greek housing here due to discrepancies with it in the past. Some people in Greek organizations are great, because they do a lot of community service with their fraternity/ sorority, and some people are only there for the parties. It all depends on the person and the organization.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football season here is really great because a lot of students are really into the football games, but then a lot of them leave midway through the game. Not nearly as many students attend the other sports' games though. There's also a lot of intramural and club sport options for people who are not into varsity sports.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is nice because there are so many more options and they're all within walking distance to campus. They're also usually cheaper than eating on campus and some even give student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness of administration depends on the administrator. Some are very strict, some are pretty lenient, and some are in between. Some may be more strict on some policies and not as strict on others.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not the worst thing possible but it's not the best either. You get tired of dining hall food after a while because they always serve the same thing and there's not that many options. Also, eating at some points of the day is better than eating at other parts of the day because the quality of the food changes throughout the day. I wish that was more consistent.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms here offer free laundry which is really nice. The dorm I live in has a nice layout with a bed that's high enough that you can store things underneath and a desk that is spacious enough to do multiple things on. We have drawers, a closet, and desk drawers so there is enough space to store everything. We also have suite-style bathrooms that are pretty okay. The only complaint I have is that the shower is too small. All in all, I can't complain too much.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not really interested in Greek Life, but they seem pretty selective.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a huge selection of food places on campus and within walking distance. Most that are close by usually offer a student discount.

Administration: They are very worried about alcohol and drug use, being strict when they find out about it but their "room checks" are pretty lenient when it comes to alcohol in the dorms.

Scholarships: The first year was great, but for my second year they took a $1,000 grant away without explanation and did not offer me any additional loans to help cover that loss until I spoke with a staff member who weaseled it out of financial aid for me.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't attend the big parties, but there is a pretty prominent party scene starting on Thursday nights through the weekend in Tempe. The other campuses don't have the same party scene.

Campus Food: As someone who actually pays out-of-pocket for my meal plan, it is not worth it. The items are overpriced and I could save hundreds of dollars without it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is great during your freshman year because you are close to classes, have a greater ability to meet friends, and have a safety blanket of food and security.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There's definitely a lot of off campus housing, I just don't know much about it. All the complexes seem to be respectable enough, and there's a range of crappy to nice, but you can usually find something at the budget level you're looking for.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I'm not super knowledgable about off-campus dining but it's generally decent, you can find stuff on Mill Ave. as well as within decent walking/biking distance.

3 College Freshman

Administration: MICs are a real thing, but it's easy to avoid them if you aren't blatantly stupid. Also, the USG is campaigning for EMTs without MICs which is basically you can call emergency services to help a drunk friend without receiving penalty, because you were just trying to be safe. Drugs and drinking aren't allowed but people do them anyways, but CAs have to write you up if they see it. Some will just ignore you coming home wasted or high but if they physically see evidence that you have been engaging in illegal activity, they will take action.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I just applied to the school and ended up getting a full tuition scholarship without having to do any extra work. If I wanted a scholarship to cover room and board, that would've been more work.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you're Greek, partying is awesome. If you're a greek girl, the world is your oyster. You can get in anywhere and go anywhere and you rarely have to pay for alcohol. Also, fraternity pledges will drive you places. If you're a greek guy, you're stuck to your own fraternity's parties but those are always pretty great. If you're not a greek girl, you have less connections but you can still get into most if not all parties. If you're not a greek guy, you have to have very good friends because you will likely not get into frat parties even if you have a good girl/guy ratio and/or alcohol. The best parties take place off campus (obviously) and they're a great way to take your mind off school.

Campus Food: We have 6 Starbucks on campus, including the country's first Starbucks truck which parks right outside of Hassayampa and Barrett. Other than that, dining halls are pretty standard, the food in the MU is standard, everything is pretty average. I love Einstein's a lot.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Barrett, the honors college, so the dorms are pretty nice. You can have suite style housing, which is a roommate and 2 suitemates, and you all share a bathroom, or you can not have a roommate and only having a suitemate sharing a bathroom. The social atmosphere is great, all the CAs are pretty chill, and it's super convenient because we have our own dining hall and gym and Honors Hall which is like a study lounge. The only thing that sucks is that Barrett is on the southeast corner of campus and is kind-of far from all of my classes, but a bike helped with that issue.

The other dorms are great too but I haven't been in like any of them.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Don't physically go there, so I wouldn't know.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I wouldn't know as I don't physically go there.

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!
