4 College Sophomore

Majors: Pretty Easy – I spoke with an admissions counselor who was very helpful. I didn't face any challenges and I was able to register with the courses I needed in a timely manner. Plus, the MYASU website was helpful in helping me figure out what courses I needed to take and what books I needed.

Weather: ASU is big on making strides to save the environment but with temperatures exceeding 100 more than half the year many do not like to walk or ride their bikes, although there is often no option. The weather makes it a lot harder to play sports and enjoy outdoor exercise. The polytechnic campus does have a pool open to students, but during science labs where long pants, sleeves and often a lab coat are required, class is a miserable experience.

4 College Senior

Parking: The parking lots and metered parking fills up fast, but parking can be found close to just about anything on campus. Parking fees are $25.00 if you don't have a pass which is around a couple hundred.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Highly Diverse Campuses – There are a variety of people on all four campuses and many different clubs and groups with varying beliefs and backgrounds.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Our university is completely diverse. We have had many organizations on campus that are highly visible and accessible for students who are interested in them.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is adequate, however, I have found that most people find it more beneficial holistically to live on-campus. I would have to agree.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: ASU's Tempe Campus is easier to walk than pay for parking that's not even close to your class. There are many frequent free shuttles that circle the campus plus take you into neighborhoods and nearby shopping centers. I personally only needed a vehicle to go from my home to the grocery store during my undergrad, otherwise I used a free shuttle, biked, or walked to school. If you have classes at other ASU campuses (Downtown, Polytechnic, etc.), there is usually a charter bus that travels between the different campuses, and I believe that is also free, but haven't used it myself.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The rules are just like any school very strict but also some rules are overlooked in most cases as long as people are not acting out of order the campus police move on.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The Tram/ the Walk – The cost to park is sort of rediculous considering at the community college I attended it was free. The walk from parking to the classes is sort of far but considering how hot it is outside its a bummer to talk to walk in the heat. There is also a tram available now but even then the walk from there to the classes is sort of far and again I have to walk in the heat 113 degree weather is not very fun to walk in for 30 min you sweat and get all nasty before you get to class.

Majors: There is a major for everything you are looking for.

Overall Experience: Awesome Teachers – I fell in love with the teachers at Arizona State University they really thrive on setting challenges and empowering the students to better themselves beyond their limits.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Working Professional – I am a returning student. So, I don't spent much time at the campus aside from classes. That being said I know that students will come to class after smoking weed.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Gammage Auditorium – ASU is blessed to have Gammage on its own grounds! Since we get Broadway plays right on-campus, there's a thriving arts community that comes along with it (and night-of student discount tickets). I always loved going to student productions as well, from theater to dance to ASU students' art exhibitions at our very own art museum.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Dine in Any Country... Without Ever Leaving Tempe. There's a taste of nearly everything around campus, and most places very close (i.e. Mill Ave, places off University, etc.) offer some form of student discount or student appreciation. Near ASU you will find Ethiopian food, Indian food, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean, Classic American, Italian... everything! I'm vegetarian (used to be vegan) and like to eat raw when possible and that's not too hard to do in Tempe! Of course there are a million chain restaurants, but I prefer those little family-owned hole-in-the-wall dives that have the best dang Vegetable Korma ever on a student-friendly budget.

5 College Senior

Majors: The ASU education program is spectacular at preparing you as a teacher. Instead of being thrown into student teaching after a load of methodology classes, you complete these courses hand-in-hand with classroom internships so you are implementing what you're learning at the same time. The workload was manageable and the classes were very relevant to current trends, such as brain-based learning, English immersion, etc. The program does adapt as state certification requirements change, which is nice!

Transportation: The transportation opportunities are endless at ASU! My favorite during my undergrad was the Orbit shuttle--it's free and there's one circulating every 10-15 minutes during peak class times. They're air-conditioned and circulate the neighborhoods surrounding ASU. The routes go pretty far for a free service, even into Scottsdale! There is a free campus-to-campus shuttle that goes between Main, Polytech, and Downtown. It's more like a coach touring bus: comfortable seats, air-conditioning, and free wi-fi with your ASU login! If you're an ASU student you can also purchase discount Valley Metro and lightrail passes (your U-pass, available to purchase online through your ASU account), both of which are pretty convenient and ever-expanding. Personally, I'm not much of a Valley Metro fan, I'd rather drive long distances (it's quicker), but the lightrail is nice because it's free parking at the stops and goes right to Sun Devil Stadium (stop trying to battle parking on-campus for football games!), the Diamondbacks' ballpark and the Suns' arena (sorry, I can never keep up with the names!). Plus, if you have tickets for an event at the arena, the lightrail is FREE. If you live near ASU, don't spend exhorbitant amounts on a parking pass and just use the free travel options!

College Senior

Majors: Teaching Program Internships – Before student teaching at ASU, you have to complete three single-semester [unpaid] internship placements at varying schools. You spend on average 1 full day a week in the classroom throughout the semester (although, if you're like me you'll want to go more often!). How your internship goes is all up to you! I always got involved, planned mini-lessons to teach in order to supplement the teacher's own plans so he/she could give me feedback and pointers. This was the best part of the education program at ASU--very helpful for gaining experience!

Drug Safety: What Ever Your Into – You'll find what you seek out. drugs and alcohol are all over campus if you are looking for it. I am looking for good kids and good influences so I don't know were to find it, but i could if i wanted to

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Seen but Unseen – The police are always there if i needed their help, but I never really see them doing anything and the drug and achol problem are just getting worse.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Resources Galoure – There are so many resources and options for success here. There are a lot of different kinds of resources that can be used to move forward to being the best student and future professional you can be. The place is big and people can be friendly.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I've seen people of all different races, ethnic backgrounds and religions on campus. It is a campus for a variety of different cultural backgrounds which makes for an interesting and educational experience for everyone.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Many Different Options – I enjoy the food choices at ASU. There is a very fancy, organic (though expensive) restaurant in the student union that I enjoy, a few dining halls with pretty healthy and wholesome foods, a Jamba Juice and a couple Starbucks, and a few fastfood options. I think the variety is perfect.

3 College Senior

Academics: Could Be Better – Like any school, some teachers are amazing while some don't seem to know what's going on and leave students confused and unsure of what is expected of them. However, a bright student will be able to figure it out and be successful with it without the help of their professors, though even the most unorganized teachers try to be of service in whatever way they can.

3 College Senior

Academics: Some Really Amazing Teachers – My first semester I had some incredibly helpful professors, but ever since then every teacher has seemed to be really unorganized, making everything more stressful than it needs to be. Still, they all try to do what they can to help you out and the workload is always manageable.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: I chose the Polytechnic campus because it has plenty of places to get away in between classes, whether it's to relax for a couple hours or work on assignments while on campus.

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!
