3 College Freshman

Technology: I haven't really tested out any of the computers around campus because I have my own computer in my room. I never have a problem with the wifi in my room and most places in campus have pretty good wifi service. There are some dead zones around campus though. The most annoying one for me being right outside of my dorm building. The wifi can also be a little slow at times just because there are so many students using it. Usually it's not too bad so I give it a B.

Local Area: ASU has the greatest atmosphere. You still have all of the old cliques from high school, but the remarkable thing is that they over-lap to a large degree. I would say the local attitude towards students is ...aware. You never know if the nerdy kids are going to be coming to a restaurant drunk or if the party people behave themselves at a bar. For the most part, people are friendly and ASU Sun Devils at heart. On Mill Ave (the West side of Tempe/Main campus) is full of bars, restaurants, stores. The other campuses have milder hangouts as well. All of the campuses are safe, but once you start venturing farther away, it is good to be aware of your surroundings. Obviously taking a short cut through a dark alley is not the best of choices, but it's well lit and safe otherwise.

Off-Campus Housing: For housing, it is better NOT to go through ASU. The apartments the university offer are twice as expensive as apartments a block away. I would suggest really doing your research via internet and look at reviews from 3rd party sites to get a realistic idea of what the apartment complex is like. For the most part, it is fairly easy to get a decent apartment close to campus. Chances are it will be safe, a decent price, and close to a bus stop that will take you to campus in under 10 minutes. However, it may not be the fanciest of places.

Academics: I graduated from ASU with a major in English Literature and I gave ASU a B+ because I know its program is good, but it is not the best even in the state. I had friends who went to NAU and UofA and they were learning much more than me. However, any program is what you make out of it and how far you are willing to go. I will say this for ASU, they have a remarkable internship program. If you network and stay in touch with the director, you can find some great opportunities to lead to your career. NAU and UofA do not have as good of a program in that respect.

Athletics: I think the school spirit at ASU is outstanding, it is a great way for students to be involved.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: ASU keeps all of their facilities clean and up to date. The facilities are all equipped with today's top technology, which creates an excellent learning environment.

4 College Freshman

Administration: For the most part, ASU follows there policies, whether it be academic or crime policy. So, if you ar looking to get away with something at ASU, you better have a good lawyer.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Everywhere I go at ASU, people are smoking. But around the dorms, it's worse. I know at my dorm there were several students caught smoking marijuana. Other than the smoking, I have not seen other drugs being used.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at ASU is great. However, the prices are outragious. For instance, I ordered just a cheeseburger and it was $5. For that kind of price, I could have gotten a whopper with a large fry and drink for less money.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The Computer Labs are amazing. All of the computers are state of the art and are equipped with hundreds of programs free to use.

5 College Junior

Weather: From October or November until March or April, the weather is spectacular - the sun shines nearly every day and you'll never have to shovel snow; you might not even need a jacket. There is snow just 2 hours away if you decide you need to play for a day. The summer is extremely hot. Those are the only two seasons ASU has.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: You can find everything under the sun when it comes to Sun Devils.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The campus itself, as well as Tempe, are diverse. That's not necessarily true of the state as a whole.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: There are not as many scholarships available in the ASU 'scholarship portal' as I had expected.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is good and there are lots of options, although none compare to home.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Some say they love it and others say they don't. It depends on the Sorority/Fraternity you chose to be in.

Transportation: I live downtown so I usually take the Light Rail or the shuttle. The Light Rail is very convenient and you can get anywhere from one stop at Mesa to Tempe then to Phoenix in about 20-40 minutes. Although the Light Rail can get pretty scary at night since it is available to the general public. The shuttle is free for all students and staff but it does run late sometimes and it could get pretty packed and on a hot day some people tend to smell.

4 College Freshman

Weather: I like the weather in Arizona. I am originally from California and I do enjoy the weather there but I prefer the heat.

4 College Freshman

Academics: it is a hard workload being in engineering but it is a lot of fun and rewarding.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Tempe is a large town and lots of things to do and it is very safe.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: there is a large amount of diversity and people from all backgrounds that get good grades and are very interesting

4 College Freshman

Administration: they are very strict and help keep the campus safe.

4 College Junior

Academics: I have learned so much since I began at ASU. There are many resources available and the teachers are all very engaged in their students and helping them succeed.

3 College Senior

Majors: I like my program because it focuses directly in what my interests are.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys are a lot more friendly and fun than the girls. Most girls are very stuck up and rude. The guys are more willing to just kick back and have fun.

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!
