Scholarships: It Was Ok – When I first contacted ASU to review the finanical aide info it was difficult to get people to call me back. Once they did though it was helpful.

Administration: Get What You Deserve – I have not got in any trouble with the university, but I hear they are strict with alcohol on campus as they should be. I believe everyone deserves a 2nd chance and I believe they give lots of people chances if they mess up.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The tempe campus and downtown campus are the campuses I attend. Feel very safe with security and police monitoring the walkways. I would just getting locks for bikes and keep an eye on your skateboard cause those are about the only things that aren't safe.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Arizona State University, gets their students. They make sure everyone is comfortable. Providing varieties of place to eat, have fun, and meet people. By far the best university I have ever been too. It is always sunny which makes you want to be active. They also make it easy for people who do not drive to get around with the transportation provided. There is school spirit everywhere which makes me feel welcome and glad to be a Sundevil

Off-Campus Dining: Tempe Marketplace – Variety of different restaurants. The scenery is great with the palm trees. It is a place where you can go shopping for your school supplies, clothes, or dine. The movie theatre is located within the marketplace so after a bite to eat it is a great place to take a date. Did I mention Coldstone Ice Cream? This place has it all!

5 College Junior

Transportation: Campus Shuttles – The campus are extremely helpful for students to transport in between the campus. They are completely free, air conditioned, and the seating arrangements are awesome. All you need to know is that you get one the right bus and be there on time.

Technology: Computer Labs – The computers on campus are pretty abundant depending on what days and times you are on campus. It is important to remember that ASU has an enormous student population so the labs can be crowded at times.

Drug Safety: Many people at ASU consume alcohol, the school is known for its partying ways after all. You wont be pressured into drinking if you do not partake but it is safe to assume that many of your peers will be indulging.

Scholarships: Not Easy to Communicate With. I have had a lot of experience with the financial aid office and the whole process has been very confusing and difficult for me. Scholarships are not disbursed in a timely manner and communication is tough because the office is not easy to get a hold of and often times is unable to answer my questions and help me out.

Off-Campus Dining: I Do Not Eat Off Campus Too Often. The off and on-campus food is pretty good. I try to pack my own lunch or simply grab snacks throughout the day rather than buy myself a lunch.

Campus Food: There are a lot of dining options that anyone can access on all four campuses. We have dining halls that cater to dietary needs or choices and a meal plan that you can change or add to as time goes by.

Parking: On the larger campus in Tempe, it can be more difficult to find parking if you do not live there. However, on the majority of our other campuses parking is fine.

Scholarships: The Process Is Little Complicated – I am an international student and for us there are very limited opportunities to get scholarship. I didn't get much help from the financial aid office at ASU, as most of the scholarships they had required the US citizenship. Although I got the position of Graduate Research Assistant in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at ASU for one of the semesters during my Masters program, but I had to pay from my pocket fot the other semesters. But if any student is a citizen here they have lot of scholarships. The only thing they need to do is to apply early in the semester and stay in touch with the college authorotoes and financial aid office during scholarship process.

Greek Life: Greeks Are Not That Vibrant Now – Greek life is average, and no one will treat you differently if you don't join. Most of the non-Greeks are indifferent about Greeks. Greek students stay in run-down chapter houses.

4 College Senior

Academics: Definitely Ratemyprofessor – Definitely look up your instructors on Rate My Professor. Some instructors may receive a "bad grade" because they assign too many essays, but someone like me, I'd rather write an essay every week than have to work in a group. Do lots of research about tutoring and get to know librarians. Give yourself plenty of time when navigating through campus and try not to become tempted by vending machines... being an adult, life is still mostly standing in lines and paying for things.

Academics: If Phoenix Can Become Sustainable, Any City Can – I'm an Urban Planning major at ASU. Out of all majors offered at the university, Urban Planning is the only one that's genuinely got me trying and desiring to succeed. The workload can become intense, but there are professors and TAs are available to offer help and guidance. Urban planning and sustainability courses are interesting and very easy to apply to my daily life. There are vague concepts, but at the same time, creativity/originality can go a long way. For example, coming up with unique processes to conserve energy or reduce consumption and things like that. As far as internships and job opportunities go, the world is basically working on becoming "green" or more sustainable. A student can possibly intern or volunteer at a recycling center, shadow a city or regional planner, go into local/state or national politics or even law enforcement. Majors can choose hone into a specific area of urban planning such as transportation, recycling, housing, historical restoration/preservation, environmental conservation/preservation, and so much more. What's taught in urban planning and sustainability courses are things everyday people can understand and possibly apply to their lives.

Campus Housing: Loved the Dorms – The dorms that i lived inon campus were very nice. HassayampaBest was a very good and friendly place to live. There were many activities to do.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: 8 Good Months – At Arizona State, weather is very nice for eight months but the other four are extremely hot. Drink lots of water if you choose to go to asu.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is extremely expensive but available everywhere. A lot of the parking is covered but it's still really expensive. Some of the parking is far from campus but they provide buses to and from parking lots

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Dorm Security – In order to enter the dorms, one must have an I.D. and a key. The I.D. is used to actually enter the dorm area, while the keys open every door from there on in. It helps provide high security and safety for the studenets on campus and living in the dorms.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys at Arizona State have a plethora of different ways they dress. Some dress sporty and others based on their culture. The girls tend to wear daisy dukes and lose tops in this hot heat! Many of the students seem to prefer to skateboard around campus, including the girls.

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!
