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.

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.

4 College Senior

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.

3 College Senior

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.'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.

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.

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!

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There is a long strip near ASU known as Mill avenue, there are tons of dining options! Everything from vegan to bar foods and fast food! Because these vedors are located in a college town there are many late night options as well!

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I'm at Polytech Campus - however, there are FREE shuttles running regularly to Tempe campus for classes and sporting events daily. I've never had a problem getting to Tempe campus for a class on time. At Polytech, it's just walking or a bike. Everything is right there and they even offer an hourly car rental at cheap rates for a run to the movies or grocery store, is you can't find someone to give you a lift - which there's always someone around willing to get off campus for a break.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: We laugh here and say all the weather forecasters that almost flunk out of college can work here - it's always SUNNY and HOT! And if they're wrong, we're happy because it's something different and we enjoy a rain every now and then - so they're not even in trouble when they're wrong. After spending some time in Florida and Texas over the years and experiencing the humidity and heat combination, I'll take the Arizona heat any day. After all - it's a DRY HEAT!

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have received scholarships, grants and student loans. After initially setting up everything through FASA, I've really had no problems and everything has been simple and straight forward. I encountered no problems my freshman year and all renewals so far have been smooth.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I came to ASU for the "Gaming Design" program. I love the tech classes I'm taking, not crazy about the general ed classes required. My professors have been great, but I found I'm not an on-line class student. I do much better in courses where I physically attend class.

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!
