5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am now very happy with my Global Health major. I feel comfortable in my classes and enjoy what I am learning. Before I was a Global Health major, I was a Biological Sciences major and I hated it. The classes were very general and did not catch my interest. If I could do it all over again, I would chose not to because I am happy with how things turned out and I believe I picked a major that suits my interests. Initially, I had picked Biological Sciences because I wanted to be a pediatrician or doctor in order to help people, but I realized that Global Health was more fitting for me because it encourages more social interaction with a community or person, which is very important for me if I want to help someone out.

Majors: I am a Global Health major and from my understanding this discipline is fairly new, which is something I really like because it is something modern and innovative. It focuses on health related issues that affect a community and how to come up with ways to overcome the issue. One requirement that this major requires is that students must study abroad. I like the fact that this is a requirement because it drives students to travel somewhere beyond their comfort zone and apply the skills they have learned to help a community that can benefit from this knowledge.

Campus Housing: The Hassayampa dorms I lived in my freshman year were very accommodating. The building was much newer than some of the other dorms and the rooms were very spacious. I liked the fact that the bathrooms were not typical community bathrooms. Instead, there was one bathroom for two suites which worked well for me because I did not have to worry to share the bathroom with the entire floor. The only thing that I did not like was that the walls were somewhat thin so it was easy to hear noises from outside the room.

Majors: The process of admission to obtain my Global Health major was not very difficult. One of the problems I had was looking for the adviser's page to make an appointment, but after that point it was very simple. The adviser was very helpful and helped me pick my classes that were most suitable for my schedule and area of study. One important criteria is to complete introductory courses for a foreign language, but after much encouragement from my adviser, I took the CLEP Spanish test and did not have to take those introductory courses.

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, but do plan on looking for one. On the university's website, there is a page where students are free to browse for jobs/internships which makes internship hunting easy and accessible to those looking for such an opportunity. When it comes time to look for an internship, I'll be confident in knowing how to look for one and determine which is the best for me by simply looking on ASU's student employment search.

Scholarships: Many changes have occurred within our United States Universities. Many have found school to become challenging due to high enrollment status or projected career interest. Just ask yourself if this career choice is what you see yourself in and are you ready to make that commitment. Remember a student loan must be paid back.

4 College Senior

Parking: I have personally observed many car vacancies, for myself I do not have such, an automobile.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I have noticed special events, bannners as such, to exhibit the upcoming events regarding Greek festivities. There are numerous restaurants to choose from regarding Greek entree and share Greek traditions.

4 College Senior

Academics: BFA in dance is not as easy as most people think. This major requires your to comite a lot of time and effort. The workload is not overwhelming, but expect to write a lot. The facilities are great, nice big studios. The dance program is small. You will know your classmates, peers and professors very well!

Weather: Hot, Hot, Hot! During summer months expect to be inside or at the pool (in the water!) Summer temperatures are from 100-125. In the fall ( mostly after october) things start to cool down a little. Winter and Spring is great! 50-80's. BUT, it can get cold during the winter! (i'm talking 30's-40's)

Guys & Girls: You'll find a lot of attractive individuals on this campus.

Local Area: Tempe is a party town. Mill Ave is always crazy during the school year. Plenty of great restaurants and shops also aline the streets of Mill. There is always something happening. The Phoenix are is pretty spread out though, so having a car is a plus.

Campus Housing: I lived in Hayden and it was not the dorm experience I was expecting. To start the rooms where ok. not a lot of closet space for a girl, but i made it work. Having to use the community bathroom, which was not my favorite part. I was on an all girls floor, who kept to themselves. The maintenance response time was fast if their was ever an issue. I mostly enjoyed the location of these dorms on campus.

Campus Quality: I am a Native American and it is especially important I remember where I came from. Having choices to participate in a variety of culture events I find especially pleasing to me.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Thus far in my education I have not encountered any difficulty with the following above facilities.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: I absolutely love the night life when accompanied with friends.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: There is no communication in the financial department. Fight for every penny that you can because ASU will always try to nickle and dime you. I still have retained a 4.0 GPA yet all ASU offers me are loans and one measly scholarship that barely covers anything. If you want scholarships, you better be a minority or special in some way. Otherwise....you're out of luck.

3 College Senior

Weather: It's pretty hot the first few months, but then the weather gets beautiful in the fall. Winter is a bit chilly, but nothing like back east (no snow or any of that). We get light showers seldom and every once in a while a big thunderstorm rolls through. By April/May it starts to heat back up to the 90-100s range.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: University housing will do everything in their power to screw you over. The dorms are extremely expensive (after I calculated it, it turned out to be about 900 dollars a month!). I tried to room with my best friend my freshman year but because of University Housing's lack of communication, I got stuck with one of the worst roommates I could imagine. And it's not like I did any of the application stuff last minute, either! I was very prompt on completing all required documents, but in the end their response was "Ooops?"
The only good thing about living on campus is being able to wake up 10 minutes before class starts and still get there on time.
If you live on campus, they force you to buy a meal plan which is another 1000-2000 dollars.
IF YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR YOU, DON'T LIVE ON CAMPUS IN THE DORMS.

Scholarships: I feel that most universities have a process and within that process there is going to be a hassle and problems. Its not completely a headache but it does take a lot to get what you need.

1 Recent Alumnus

Parking: I cant stand the parking on campus, it is way to expensive and makes it extremely difficult when going to class. My advice, live in campus, its much easier!

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: It depends on what campus you attend, there are 4 campus are the Phoenix area the most popular and fun campus is the Tempe campus. It is always live and there is always something going on in all the facilities.

5 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I do not live on campus but from vising my friends and what i have seen everything seems to be appropriate for college dorm room living.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: There is always campus police day and night. I have always felt safe here.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: This school has so much school pride almost all games are filled with students and fans, never a dull moment there is always something going on!

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!
