Guys & Girls: ASU Tempe is a pretty big party school, so if you're not into that then you'll have to do some hunting to meet new people. The school luckily offers a wide range of different clubs and I would say you're guaranteed to find something that suits your interest.
As for people there in general there's still definitely a lot of diversity, but there are a ton of Asians and Indians there as well. The chicks there are also super hot so work out those abs! Lol

Local Area: At the Tempe campus there's a popular strip on Mill Ave with lots of bars, clubs, shops, and eating places. Its a nice spot especially at night on the weekends. There is also an internet cafe and a park with events right by that strip. The only thing really is that activities and places to go are somewhat scarce away from this hot spot.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus always has its pros and cons, but ASU has several cons. The housing near ASU is very expensive. The apt are very nice but the price is outrages. Everything is overpriced, the buildings are party central, and the people are rude. But if you go a little farther away, not more then half a mile, the prices start to go down. The apt are still very nice but more reasonable to students that are paying for school themselves.
The houses in Tempe are amazing though, they are old but have character. Houses in Tempe are large and spacious, and despite living in Arizona Tempe is very green. The back yards are very big, and filled with greed. Just be careful about the Tempe cops.

Off-Campus Dining: Although you might have to walk a little there are great off campus dining options. On Tuesday's there are taco Tuesdays at Fuzzys on mill. The tacos are amazing and its a great crowd. Usually the dining is fairly priced, but there are always the restaurant that become price but most are generous to students.

Campus Quality: One thing that I love about ASU is the film program. I find it encouraging that each film student receives a mentor that they can talk to. Usually the student is paired with a professor that resembles the same ambitions in film and the student.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining at ASU is highly disappointing. The "MU" which is the center dining building and the busiest building on campus has a dinning hall called pitch fork. Although the title of the hall is catchy and exciting the food is nothing but subpar. The veggies are often dried out and unappealing, they are usually always out of items, they surve the same food almost all the time, and the service is the worst of the experience.
But there is hope, if you are one of the lucky who can afford to live the high life at ASU you could dine at one of the many other dining halls which are far better. You might be thinking, why do you not just dine there. It is simple, the other dining halls are farther away. I find it incredibly deemning that just because I am not one of the colleges that the housing by the better halls house or that I simply can not afford it I am left to eat horrible food, that to sum it up is worse then cafeteria food I so desperately was escaping when graduating.

Technology: If you can find an open computer at the computer lab then you wont be disappointed. Quality is good and the internet speed is phenomenal.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The is a pretty good variety around the Tempe campus with Olivios and Raising Canes close to the Northeast corner, Mill Avenues eateries on the northwest corner, IHOP and Chipotle on the southwest corner, and Taco Bell, Wendys, and Mcdonalds on the southeast corner.

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is sunny all the time. The days during the beginning and end of the year are really hot and the nights during 'winter' feel even colder than they are. But you can count on 300+ beautiful sun-shiny days.

Health & Safety: There are ASU police and health services on all campuses

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol abuse is very common at ASU. When I was in ASU 101, the wellness representative was even talking openly about how many people at ASU use drugs and abuse alcohol. I think that it really depends on who you hang out with but you either party or you don't at all. I don't really see a middle ground at ASU.

Academics: I am an online student and I really love the choices available both for electives and required course work for my major. Some very interesting topics, some creative learning applications are employed throughout the courses and so far the professors have been great and very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are many many computers available on campus but also many many students looking to use them. Also the computers are getting a little old and sometimes are extremely slow. I am extremely glad I have my own laptop.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are taken very seriously at ASU and we have extremely nice facilities. The amount of school spirit is unbelievable!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Although there are a lot of options, only a couple around campus accept M&G and many of the restaurants are a little too pricey for a college student.

5 College Senior

Majors: instructors here at ASU are very through and if you need additional help there are student success center who will help you with your reports. My program health promotion is very interesting, I myself had benefit from what I have learn and also applied new materials into my life.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Recreational was provided at all ASU campuses as well as fitness facilities that provided clubs, outdoor programs, and health promotion.

5 College Senior

Majors: A gpa of 3.3 was necessary to get into the kinesiology program.

5 College Senior

Majors: ASU provided good career goals that were applied to my degree.

4 College Senior

Majors: internship notifications are well distributed at ASU through email, student services, and posted on bulletins.

Campus Quality: The gym on the Tempe Campus is a great gym. There are two floors and lots of machines such as ellipticals, treadmills, and stationary bikes. There is also a weight room and classes one can sign up for at an extra fee such as karate and yoga. The libraries are open most of the day and the Hayden library is open all 24 hours all week long.

Off-Campus Dining: Going to Mill ave for food and shopping is always fun, even more if you are 21 years old. There are many bars and fun clubs for those of age. However those who are still underage can go out to eat at good restaurants like Chili's that is only about a fifteen minute walk from the ASU campus and its an afforable price.

Guys & Girls: Everyone is either dressed up properly or in gym clothes. Rarely ever is anyone looking bad. For the most part I would say everyone is stylish and both guys and girls take care of their appearance. Most guys are the built musular type, so girls if you like that come to ASU!.

Scholarships: Get as much tips to filling out the Fafsa as you can ahead of time. The financial aid office was not of much help when I was first applying. They pretty much told me to do what I thought was right! But at my third attempt at last my financial aid went through and I received an amazing substantial amount, so it was definitely worth the headache in the end.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing allows for students to have the freedom they wish now that they are living on their own. There is security all around, so if you ever feel unsafe the police is available right away. The neighbors are usually fun people who want to make new friends as well. so have fun and socialize.

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!
