Administration: The police are extremely strict on minor in consumption (drugs AND alcohol). After the second MIC, your housing becomes in jeopardy. Be careful and discreet in what you do. There are also "quiet times", not strictly enforced unless you seriously disrupt the peace; you will be documented.

Parking: The availability of parking is great, the permit cost for students is horrendous. It is 800 dollars for the parking permit, but the spots are close to the dorms (Hassayampa - the brand new housing)

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: For how much my mother makes, which is not very much, I did not get awarded a lot. There is a great hassle trying to get ahold of the financial aid office, and the line there is atrociously long. The abundance of scholarships is poor as well. The FAFSA awarding is not as great as I thought it would be either.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It is pretty hot right at the beginning, but you get used to it quickly. You do sweat a lot, and since classes are for from the brand new dorms, it is a bit of a hassle. After about a month, the weather moderately cools down. No matter what though, everyone is outside or out and about so it works!:)

Diversity: Thier is more chinese and indie kids, then blacks or any other race and I believe that it is absoutely crazy because I have never seen so many all in one place and I don't know what made them choose to come here compare to other colleges. But overall the school and the people are nice so really I don't see much people complaining about the race because everyone are basically friends with each other.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is here really good and the dining hall food service is way better than the high school cafeteria food. I go almost every once in awhile to eat in different dining halls. And also its always clean and always have food prepared and ready for kids when they enter.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Fork Em! Amazing spirit and great atmosphere! Nowhere better!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I hear serviceis good but you have to wait forever.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Light Rail – I must say that public transportation is quite excellent! Buses, shuttles, and the light rail are always running! It's really cheap, plus you do not have to pay for parking tickets! I use the light rail saves me gas and money!

4 College Senior

Technology: Computer Labs – Computer labs on campus are reliable. They only get crowded during midterms/finals. The computers are modern not old school. You'll always find a spot. WiFi is available around campus so you can always bring your laptop! I do not really feel the need to take my laptop to campus its easier and more convenient for me to use a computer there!

4 College Senior

Local Area: I attend the downtown campus, it is very interesting. You have several stores to go shopping to. It is quite safe, there is always police/security walking around. Students are friendly. It is a diverse campus. You can enjoy baseball games at the Chase field. There are several things that you can do off campus. You'll enjoy it!! There is always something going on! There are many places to go eat, maybe you're feeling like going out? There's clubs/bars around, plus the great thing is that the light rail is right there! Very convenient!

5 College Sophomore

Technology: All up-To-Date Mac or PC. They have ADOBE CS6, All 2012 programs. Fairly shocked at the quality.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have only just began my degree in Anthropology. I love physical anthropology and see it repeated in some of my courses. I hope to do some research in Africa and work work in a zoo with monkeys.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Fun College! There are four ASU campuses, and all of them are filled to the brim with things to do. You will never be bored, and there are hundreds of clubs for almost any interest you can think of. There are fitness centers to stay healthy, huge libraries for research, and exciting traditions.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Super Easy Admission – When I applied for my program at ASU, it was the easiest process ever! All I did was fill out my basic information about myself and my high school grades and I was offered admission within a few days, if I remember correctly.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Awesome Criminology Program – The Criminology program here is amazing. The classes are intriguing, and I am never bored. The workload is completely doable, as long as you use your time wisely. ASU has lots of connections with all sorts of agencies that are always recruiting people for internships and even jobs. Very nice program.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Be Careful Where You Look – Make sure you look slightly further from campus like in Scottsdale, Chandler or Gilbert. The downtown Tempe area is not safe and I had a horrible experience there. It was cheap and close but not worth it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Pros and Cons – It is great that it does not rain often but the heat is unbearable.

2 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Culturally Inept – I am from the East Coast and in comparison there is lack of cultural and limited amount of things to do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Safety First – I took several night classes and I always felt comfortable walking to my car.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are people from all walks of life who attend ASU; however, the majority ethnicity is still Caucasian.

3 College Junior

Technology: Pay Per Print; but Convenient – Gone are the days of having to scrounge for change in order to copy/scan/print. Now the charges just get added to your student account. Prices are reasonable too. Computers are overall reliable and seem to be average in speed. There are a number of different locales in which a student can find computers; the libraries and computer commons, for example.

Guys & Girls: Attractive Students – There are tons of attractive people who attend ASU. Especially during the hotter months, everyone's decked out in short shorts and tank tops ;)

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Smart Instructors – There are many helpful instructors who know what there are doing and their teaching methods range from traditional to fun and different.They try to help me any way they can and give a lot of good resources to utilize.

Technology: 1 Good Library, 1 Bad – The computer labs at Noble Science and Engineering Library get overcrowded and there are 4 computers I know that are extremely slow. At Hayden Library there is always a spot and there is a lot of room for those who bring there laptops.

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!
