3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of bikers that don't pay much attention, and many times they crash into people. They're not supposed to bike in the crowd but security never stops them (I've actually never seen the security.) There is quite a lot of theft as well. Laptops and bikes are stolen frequently. Other than that, the school is safe. The only complaints are that some of the people don't comply to rules.

Health & Safety: I feel the environment at ASU is very safe. Campus police and city of Tempe police are very visible. I have never felt unsafe and haven't heard negative feedback from friends.

Drug Safety: Drugs are available in any university but I don't think there is a sever problem at ASU

Off-Campus Housing: There are several apartments, condos, and housing near campus with reasonable pricing.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football is decent. Basketball is decent. Baseball is excellent. Softball is good. Soccer is good for both men and women. Wrestling is a bit below par.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The Hassyampa and Barett dorms are very nice, new and good quality. The Best, Irish, McClintock, Palo Verde, both East and West, and San Pablo dorms are somewhat older and decent in terms of condition however they are somewhat below par.

2 College Junior

Administration: The school is strict in terms of keeping students within the law, however the moral code of conduct is relaxed.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Tempe is a great college city. Mill Avenue is a popular street where most of the college students go to drink at the bars. Others enjoy shopping and walking down Mill Ave or enjoying a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. There are many places to go visit on campus as well including the Arizona State University art museum, grab a snack or coffee in the Memorial Union, work out in the Student Recreation Complex, or go study in one of the many University libraries. For an older crowd, ten minutes north of Tempe is beautiful Scottsdale. Old Town Scottsdale is a Mill Ave alternative. With many shopping centers, gourmet restaurants and bars to choose from, Tempe and Scottsdale provide an array of exciting daytime and nighttime activities.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are so many opportunities for internships, there are a lot of resources available to help you find and get one. Talk to advisors especially, they are there to help you and will guide you in the right direction.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do feel pretty uncomfortable at night, but there is campus security and you can call for a safety escort if need be.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are drugs on campus. If you are around people who do that stuff, it's a lot. Especially in the residence halls. But you can definitely stay away from it too. Just choose the right people to spend time with.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are a lot of rules, it just depends how you try to go about following them or not whether you get caught or not

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love the school itself and the staff seems pretty good so far, however, there are a lot of students that have other things on their mind rather than school.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: This question is funny to me. C'mon it's ASU! There is something to do every single night of the week, come the weekend Mill Ave, the Vue, Vista. Those places all get crazy. There are also several 18+ clubs in the area for those under 21.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Here at ASU the sports are exciting, fun to watch, and just a great time overall. The school does a very good job at getting students and other fans really involved with the teams. Everyone really feels like family.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus Bus or Hike – ASU is a large campus. Parking permits are crazy expensive.
Most have to park miles away.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process was fine. I didn't have to do anything special. Getting in to the major is really not that hard, but staying with is the most challenging part.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Here at the west campus, there are new gym and dining pavilion services. Both have a diverse selection within and are very convenient. The staff are all very kind and very helpful. There are also a lot of organizations to become involved in, as well as a good arts scene at this campus. If you have a mind to be involved, you can be.

5 College Junior

Majors: I'm a Social and Behavioral Sciences major, and I enjoy it. It's a fascinating field, and a general jumping-off point for a variety of paths in grad school. I used to be part of the Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance program, and that one is great as well. If you're into psychology, art, sociology, cultural anthropology, music (especially experimental music), performance, political sciences, or anything like these, then I highly recommend ASU.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have had a good experience with the professors who I have met and with the opportunities that I have found here. Before going to ASU, I was not a very good student. I was somewhat of a trouble-maker. Now, I am in the honors college and have discovered a love of learning. The vast majority of professors here are talented and very interesting people. My one complain, however, is the cost of everything here. I don't personally face this problem, because my father teaches here, but I often hear about how expensive tuition is. I know several people who have elected not to go here because of the cost.

I do, however, pay for my own supplies and for my room and board. While they are all quality, I do wish things were less expensive. If I didn't have money saved up, I would have a much harder time with things here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: ASU offers the best resources to succeed. The facilities are both modern and clean, and ASU offers the best events

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The freedom that comes with off-campus housing is great! No one likes to be told what to do or act if they are paying somewhere to live. Thos some places are really expensive, there are other ways you can have that freedom and still pay as little as possible! Off-Campus housing is a great choice you just have to be smart about it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: At first they where great. They had very helpful and kind staff. But towards the middle of the semester, they always switch out the staff and it looked as if new members where hired. That made the process a lot harder because the individuals did not explain things right and didn't give out valid information on processes people needed to take to continue recieveing financial aid.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't dominate but it is very involved in the university. At this university everyone is part of the community.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: This university takes pride in all academics including sports. The university has coaches and counselors that supports every student in all means necessary.

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!
