Majors: I'm happy with my degree program(Biological Sciences), as it is a stepping stone in the industry to get to any other healthcare related degree program. If I could do it all over again I would've jumped straight to the program I'm in now, and not wasted my time with earlier life decisions that have left me in quite a deep financial sinkhole. Eventually, I plan to attend a University that offers a PharmD program, and my concerns over finding a job once I graduate are minimal to none.

Majors: I'm attending Arizona State University in the Biological Sciences degree program. I will say it is more challenging than one would think going into it, but it is very manageable. The coursework is not too over bearing, and most of the professors are tenured, and have a set curriculum. However, a few of the international professors are very hard to understand, and the fact that ASU's Tempe campus is known as the research campus, the material tends to be biased towards their own research. All in all, ASU is a great school that continually challenges, and expects the student to excel with guidance if needed.

Local Area: Mill Ave is right by the Tempe campus. The nightlife there is huge.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of apartments and condos near the campus. Even if you live 30 minutes away, the transportation offered is beneficial.

5 College Junior

Majors: The teachers are phenomenal at the Downtown Phoenix campus. It has the small college interaction, but you can go to the Tempe campus and get the big campus feel. Two in one.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Suckkk!!!!! I pretty much didnt get any and I had a 3.7 going in,

Party Scene: The nightlife is great once you get to know people on campus you can pretty much get into any party

5 College Senior

Majors: the advisors were a huge help for making decision for a major. application was online and very clear to follow.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Summers are the worst. HOT, HOT, HOT. It can still be quite warm when the sun goes down but on the plus side you get to dress in summer wear pretty much all year long besides winter. Its not all that bad, its always sunny. :)

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports I would assume to be a huge deal at every school. There is certainly lots of school pride and fan support at ASU. A lot of alumni will usually attend the football games as well.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: It is sooooooooooo hot that traveling between classes is always a nightmare.

3 College Junior

Administration: Strictness is not an issue because not very many people break the rules to begin with. Plus, they're very simple rules like not being too loud in the library and not drinking alcohol on campus. The rules are still there, but not very many people get in trouble that often.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation is available, but there are no transportation options provided by ASU to take students from one campus to another one. For example: I'm fairly close to the Tempe Campus, but I'm taking classes at the Polytechnic (Mesa) campus next semester. My 15 minute cruise just turned into a 45 minute exodus, and I now have to spend 300 a month on gas. Understandably, I'm not very happy about it.

1 College Junior

Weather: We're in Arizona, so its always HOT! Even the rain feels hot when it finally comes down. Not only that, but the air is always humid because of the extreme heat, and that's not a good thing for me since I have asthma.

4 College Senior

Academics: The Academics at Arizona State University are great! For the most part I have only encountered top of the line teachers, classrooms and curriculums. I gave an A and not an A+ because of the registration process. The system is often crashing and freezing during class registration.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Its focus on cohesive student life is great. Students have the opportunity to reach anything they need within walking distance, and if not there is a free shuttle helping people to get around. There is a good community and great food nearby and students on the street almost always are smiling.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: The diversity is pretty unique. There are people from all around the world who attend ASU. There are students to go to Arizona to experience student life and all Arizona has to offer and there are also those who take online classes to further their education.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Dinning is available but is your average University fast foods and simple selections.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: ASU has many campuses and online availability. The resources are always readily available and counselors are really good at helping students get on the right track.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus pd patrols but the campus has way to many people smoking near the classrooms.

5 College Junior

Weather: Well it's extremely hot (it is Arizona, after all) but the campus makes sure to keep students safe and hydrated. Water bottles are given out for free everywhere and fun events that include water activities are during the hotter months.

1 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity on the Tempe campus isn't that great. Mostly Caucasian and Hispanic students. I have witnessed that within many groups on-campus, diversity is low and some ethnicities may feel unaccepted and discouraged to get involved.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: There really is something for everyone (clubs, activities, classes, organizatons) but sometimes campus life is crowded with things that dont relate to academics.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: The campus is near a lot of local hang outs and clubs so the night life is very lively.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The campus is designed perfectly so that each building has a vibe and flow that fits its purpose! The engineering and performing arts buildings are beautiful and creative.

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!
