3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The are a lot of restaurants around here but students get sick of them in less than a year. And the best restaurants are not very close to campus for example, the Olive Garden.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: All the student centers and facilities are new, and if you live in the dorms they host events every week with free food and fun prizes and its very easy to meet people

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There are many options around campus, mostly fast food. There is enough diversity within the restaurants to keep the food from getting boring.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation is great. There are two free bus routs to get around campus and there are several free routs that go through Tempe. ASU also has the Tempe hub for the valley.

5 College Junior

Parking: At west campus... I missed out on the cheaper parking permits, but the more expensive one may just be worth it. The lot is never more than half full, and I usually get the same spot every day. At the end of an aisle. Covered. And at night, well lit. I'm very satisfied.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Its always sunny, even in the winter. The weather is always bipolar. Super hot in the summer, it can get up to 115.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: If you are looking for drugs, you'll find them. Otherwise there really isn't drug or alcohol visibility at Arizona State University. There are a lot of people who smoke cigarrettes all over the main campus. But that is about it.

2 College Junior

Transportation: I am an intercampus shuttle rider. It arrives every 30 minutes and has stops at every ASU campus. However, there are never enough buses when you need them. They are always filled and very difficult to catch.It gets so bad that people push you out of the way to assure themselves a seat. In addition, if you are running late, you might as well take your car to class instead of the shuttle. And if that happens, be ready to pay $2 an hour in a parking garage. That's IF the garage isn't already full (which it most likely always is). A parking pass for a semester is very expensive, too. Overall, parking and transportation is pretty horrible at ASU.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is so difficult!! The parking passes for the on-campus parking lots are astronomically expensive. If you want to pay every time you park there, there are parking garages for like $2 an hr but that adds up so quickly. Basically it's a nightmare to find parking if you can't afford to pay $600-$700 for a parking pass.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There are always campus police riding bikes around and patrolling campus. There are lit up emergency stations at almost every corner.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: work great but they are sort of old (the ones available in the libraries)

5 College Junior

Local Area: Arizona State University has 4 campuses spread out throughout the valley. The main campus is in Tempe, Arizona. It is a beautiful city with a great college atmosphere. There are shopping centers throughout, and the ASU art building hosts shows frequently. The famous Herberger Institute is home to a lot of major broadway shows. The Diamond Backs stadium can be found near the Downtown Phoenix Campus of ASU. As well as the Children's museum, theaters and art museum. The mountains are beautiful and great for hiking and other exercising activities.

Party Scene: The city of Arizona is known for nice weather all year round. That definitely contributes to the nightlife atmosphere. Students can hang out on Mill Ave and enjoy the great weather as well. Mill Ave is filled with bars and clubs. I am not 21 quite yet, and I have yet to go to a bar scene. They do have 18 and up parties and clubs as well which are fun if you go with the right crowd. The LightRail is extremely convenient form of transportation. I would suggest taking that if you plan on drinking, or having a designated driver. There's always something to do and see on Mill Ave. Around the holidays, the streets are lit up with Christmas lights, and there is a lot of outdoor entertainment. It's all about what you make of it!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food here is pretty good, you just have to know where to go. The typical buffet style diners are average, but give you plenty of choices. However, I live on the north side of campus and am always eating at devils diner/bistro/devils greens. the food there is great, tons of options the only problem is sometimes theres a wait. Theres plenty of actual restaurants on campus though that accept m&g dollars which is really nice.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It's AMAZING! I'm from chicago so the weather is absolutely beautiful. In the beginning of the school year its definitely hot, but not unbearable. A month into classes the weather couldn't get any better and it stays that will until classes are out in the summer.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus. The entire campus is well lit and there are 'emergency call poles' everywhere. Theres a safety shuttle that will pick you up and take you anywhere on campus for free. If any criminal activity ever occurs in the area, notices are posted all over campus as a warning. There's always asu police officers around campus and doesn't seem to be much crime. I'm a girl at the university and have walked by myself plenty of times after dark and have never been worried.

4 College Senior

Technology: Relatively new computers allow for quality research and studying to be done in computer labs.

3 College Senior

Athletics: ASU's sports department is nationally acclaimed, but is in a process of rebooting the more popular sports. In the meantime, they are still a good show but do not perform like they used to.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I personally don't live on campus, but I do often stop by Jamba Juice at the west campus. It's super convenient and there are rarely long lines when I go.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I've had nothing but great experiences with the academic process at ASU. All colleges have hoops to jump through to be admitted, lots of paperwork, and seemingly endless "to do's", but I've received so much help from advisors that I am thankful for. My professors have all been great, the curriculum is challenging, but not impossible. I'm a big fan of using office hours to get ahead and it shows your professors that you're there to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is nothing like being in Sun Devil Stadium cheering on the Sun Devils. Everyone in Maroon and Gold, great tail-gating experience and awesome school spirit. Also, we have pretty heated rivalries that make football even more fun! Go Devils!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Arizona State University is a very reputable school with four beautiful campuses. I'm an education major, and all of my professors have been outstanding teachers, as well as mentors. I feel that my experience at Arizona State University will prepare me for my future teaching career.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: A lot of computers available for students to use. Often times they're mostly full, but they're easier to access during off-hours.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking can be great, however, it is and can get very expensive. I had a permit for Main Campus in the Rural Rd. Parking Garage and I paid roughly around $475 for January to August. You'll always have to pay for parking no matter where you're at so I suggest always having cash and at least $3 worth of quarters. I need my car because I work and live off campus. My parking spaces were very convenient for me!

5 College Junior

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, however, I do plan on applying for one when I get to that point. I plan on entering an internship because it will integrate me into the field I would like to be in and give me a chance to make a name for myself. I am nervous to begin the internship, but so far no concerns.

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!
