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!

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.

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!

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.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is always an interesting topic. At ASU, it really depends on what you're looking for & what type of crowd you want to be in. Greek life is huge but some people forget that the reason you're here is to go to school - not go out every day of the week. I believe that the majority of people not in Greek life despise it, while those in it can't get enough of it. I am in a professional co-ed business fraternity so it is a different culture compared to the Panhellenic Greek life. Look into things like business fraternities or other clubs if Greek life is not for you, there is something for everyone.

5 College Junior

Diversity: ASU is a very diverse campus, in respect to all colleges. There are a lot of interesting people to meet if you can find them.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's generally sunny & really, really hot; especially when we return in the Fall. Weather isn't usually an issue. "It's a dry heat!"

5 College Junior

Majors: I love the psychology program as a whole. The advisers are really helpful and the classes are demanding but they challenge me to do better and learn more. The curriculum is really helpful on what you want to pursue and the professors are helpful on any questions or concerns that I have about the field I would like to study.

4 College Junior

Weather: I live in Arizona, and the weather does not affect my campus experience much. Yes it is hot during the summer months but that's just going from class to class, this is no big deal.

3 College Junior

Administration: I think that the school police are pretty good on keeping people's cars or bikes safe. They also keep the safety of the students in mind. They are also friendly in helping you where to go most of the time.

5 College Junior

Diversity: This school is really diverse, because grades and schooling don't depend on race just a willingness to learn. This is the only thing that really matters is if they are willing to further their education and that is what ASU looks for.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are quite a bit of off-campus housing options. However, ASU is a college town and the nearby apartments are most likely going to charge you by person, not by room (More business!). So if you think you and your friends are going to buy an apartment and split the price, that's not gonna happen. You'll each pay the same price and are held accountable for your own apartment bill. The prices are $1000-$2000 cheaper though.

2 College Freshman

Parking: It's about $500 a semester, and you still have to walk quite a bit. If you live in Barrett, it might be worth it...just because it's so close. But it's outrageous just to park somewhere. I would recommend just living in the dorms and using public transportation or the provided transportation from the school.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Downtown Tempe & Phoenix are the best if you just wanna go out with friends. There are a bunch of bars if you're over the age of 21. Personally, I use the intercampus shuttles just to get to downtown. I always find something to do!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I have only had been to financial a few times and most the student assistance were knowledgeable and helpful. I only had one experience where the person was rude.

4 College Junior

Weather: I am an Arizona native so I love our weather even went it 100 degrees out!

2 Recent Alumnus

Parking: The cost is horrendous to park at ASU. Most of the spaces are inconveniently far away, and there is no where near enough parking so the lots are always full.

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!
