2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is stereotypical in the sense of parties, frat and sorority life ect. In my opinion it isn't as big a deal as other college campuses.

4 College Senior

Academics: My specific major employs a very hands on approach to prepare individuals for physically active careers as well as grad schools such as physical therapy. This is different from other degrees which minimize lab exposure and fundamental physical training. The workload is similar to that of kinesiology but a little less stringent and more general to accommodate a wider variety of possible post baccalaureate opportunities. The facilities have recently been upgraded due to the increase in applicants to the program and the faculty are very knowledgeable. Internships are simple to obtain but the job opportunities are entirely dependent on the students intentions.

4 College Senior

Majors: Getting into my major was easy since the requirements are minimal in comparison to similar degrees. This enables individuals who once were not serious to correct their ways and still have a chance at the career goal they intended upon.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The main campus at ASU costs too much to park at and they could expand the parking services. Downtown almost everyone has to drive (including myself) and it is overpriced. The public transportation system is set up well to coordinate with the influx of college students near the campuses.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Many of the guys and girls at Arizona State are very superficial. They usually worry about appearance in relation to physical looks, social behavior, and academic performance. For the most part, the girls dress very sensually, and many of the guys dress to reinforce a tough bravado. However, there are those who are less worried about appearances and are more sincere in their social interactions which usually deems that they are more academic driven. Overall, it is very easy to find a certain group of individuals that one is most comfortable with at ASU since the university is so huge and has multiple campuses.

Majors: Student teaching is a required internship for my major. I have already completed one internship for my bachelors and will do another one for my masters. The internship is not paid and is a full time commitment. For the masters they work with you and you can apply for an intern certificate so you can work full time and do the student teaching at the same time. The responsibilities are the same as a full time teacher. You have lesson plans, meetings, grading papers, etc. I have no concerns about finding an internship, since it will be apart of my job that I have already. I am just concerned about working full time and doing student teaching at the same time. It will be a lot of work.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: If you are applying for financial aid at ASU make sure you file your FAFSA early and enter apply for loans.

3 College Senior

Weather: For the first two months of classes it is very hot. 100 degrees or more. Most of the school year the weather is very nice and there is hardly ever a bad weather day. We appreciate the bad weather days.

5 College Senior

Technology: There is a wide variety of computer labs on campus! They are fast and the monitors are nice. If you want to use an Apple there is access to those too!

3 College Senior

Administration: One policy about to go in affect is that the ASU campus will be strictly a non-smoking campus. No smoking allowed anywhere on campus and I think that is pretty strict compared to what it used to be. I also know that when you have a 3.5 GPA or higher while you are a senior you are invited to the prestigious honors club. Also, if you are an international student you cannot work more than 20 hours a week. I think these are all positives in academics and are showing that being strict is a good thing.

4 College Junior

Academics: The availability of internships and the career services councilor is unbelievable. It's very easy to find the one required internship and even easier to find more than 1.

4 College Junior

Academics: The teachers and curriculum at the Cronkite School are fantastic. The teachers really care about the students and the class sizes are no bigger than 50 students.

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather is super hot in the summer and very nice in the winter. Winters are very cold with snow up north but good for tempe camus. Overall the weather could not be better, anyone would love living here!

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Mill avenue is very popular spot near asu campus. There are many bars, clubs, and restraunts with plenty of fun for you and all your friends! I love it there and anyone who decides to attend asu should check it out!

5 College Senior

Transportation: Good transportation. There are even campus shuttles that travel between all of ASU's campuses

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Very good. Close to campus and has a lot of great features. Pricing not so great.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: ASU is pretty safe and the police/safety escort are really helpful.It's not that it's dangerous, it's just uncomfortable being out and about at night because there may be some drunk students running about.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: for the over 21 crowd, excellent! Very social campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is a bit old. One of the largest dorms was closed last year.. They did build some newer dorms as well

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There are quite a few places to park on camups, though the campus size does not require a vehicle if a student lives on-campus or close to campus. The parking complexes have been known to be expensive but there always seem to be spaces available. Parking is free during the weekends which is very convenient. Each parking structure is centrally located to the campus and classrooms.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different races, religions and backgrounds at ASU. The mixture of international students and in-state students make the campus very diverse. The community is very accepting of different views/values.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football and basketball games are well attended and looked forward to. Many students attend sports events with enthusiasm and school pride wearing the school colors.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Health and safety are good on campus. You can sign up to get email or text alerts, letting you know about any issues happening on or near campus. ASU is very open to communicating any safety or health issues around campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Arizona weather is very predictable. Sun, Sun, Sun, and more Sun. A few times out of the year you get some rain showers, usually a few weeks out of the winter you might get some rain showers. However, for the most part, from May-September you are dealing with 90- 100 degree weather, then the temps can be any where from 60-80 degrees. In the winter it is rare for the temps to get lower than 50 degrees during the days.

1 College Senior

Parking: Parking at Arizona State can be very frustrating. You have to have a parking permit first off and the closer you want to get to campus the more expensive the permit, but even then it's still impossible to find parking. If you know where the lightrail park and rides are located those garages normally have free parking so that's a plus.

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!
