2 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus is awful. There are never any spots open and the cost is expensive. Many students opt for taking the light rail train as an alternative because it is somewhat cheaper and students don't have to worry about finding a parking space.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus police constantly patrol the campus and there are emergency call boxes in several places on campus. Students can even request a police escort to their car or dorm if they have night classes and do not feel comfortable walking alone.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love ASU so much! The spirit is great! There is so much school pride here! I love the party life and the support systems made throughout your classes and dorm-ing experience.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a great option to split a four bedroom house with friends to lower the costs of rent! It's cheaper to rent farther away from the school.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: ASU is situated next to a light-rail station.
Buses run through the outskirts of campus and practically bring you anywhere (for cheap!).
There are ASU shuttles, flash forward/back/McAllister. They bring you around campus and it's convenient when your car is parked far away (ie: Lot 59) at night which are free!
Also free, are the Orbit buses. They can bring you to a lot of popular spots throughout Tempe! (Including Tempe Marketplace)
With all of this available transportation, you don't really need a car!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students wear ASU apparel a lot. Girls sometimes dress super trashy, but it's the desert so they can get away with it. Guys can be the sweetest people or the most self-centered people you will ever meet.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is very expensive the closer you are to the center of campus. Cheapest parking is Lot 59, but they force you to evacuate your car or you will get a fine game nights!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel like the Health Service Center, although they say it's "state of the art", is not that great. Yeah, it's convenient, but I personally rather a personal doctor.
I would not suggest walking alone at night, biking maybe. I bike everywhere.
Bikes WILL get stolen if not locked up properly. Tempe campus is well-known for this.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The Phoenix Metropolitan area is one of the largest in the country. For that reason, there's always something to do in this huge city!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: ASU is an accepting environment for race & sexual orientation! It is so diverse, it's awesome!

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: ASU has the reputation of #1 party school!

Academics: There are labs and tons of people to help you with hw!

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are great professors with reasonable workload

4 College Freshman

Technology: Wi-fi is not the absolute strongest

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: ASU hands out scholarships like candy - hahaha

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is good, but quiet hours are awful.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am beginning my senior year as a Political Science major in the spring 2014 semester. I would choose ASU again if I had to choose for this major. My plan for my graduate studies is to research the influence of politics in the criminalization of youth, of all races and ethnicities in America. Is it too late to rescue the young victims of American in-justice or ‘How it became Criminal be Young in America’?

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Beautiful scenery, very close to many shopping malls, weather is outstanding, many great restaurants and things to do just a short drive from campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The past year and a half have been the best of my life. The people were a little hard to adjust to at first but it is possible to make great friends, and the social experiences are incomparable.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The police have a strong presence that keeps many students from drinking and doing drugs. Many people use Aderrall as a study aid and alcohol is mostly used for recreational use on weekends.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is all very new and the social atmosphere is great, the only bad thing is the high cost.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe usually on campus. For the most part, I feel that you have to be doing something dumb in order to be in an unsafe situation.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration and local police have been really cracking down on underage alcohol consumption. Parking and minor traffic fines by the ASU police department are outrageous. Campus police are effective in making me feel safe.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a ton of diversity on campus, and many international students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food options are good, but often times students end up eating the same thing many times in a week because it is the best thing available. There should be more healthy options offered. Cost is average.

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!
