2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I barley see people wearing Greek letters but when I do it's usually on the south side of campus where the business students live. Most people believe that being in Greek life is a waste of money and time but I'm very indifferent about it. I know a lot great people in Greek life and a lot of mean and snobby people in Greek life so it's hard to judge.Typically, sororities live in Adelphi II which is next to Sonora and Frats live on off campus houses complex, but I heard that the new cottages next year is going to be considered "Greek Row" since it's all frats and sororities living there.

Majors: I am currently in the Ira Fulton Engineering School and I love it. It wasn't that hard to get into this program compared to other engineering programs but that doesn't mean that the engineering school is easy. GPA is probably the most important criteria for admission even though I got in with a 3.0. The application process is just the ASU application which takes about 15 minutes max to finish, so my tip is just apply and see what happens.

Local Area: I didn't go off campus that much to say much about the local area but I can tell you that Tempe itself is very gorgeous. But if you do want to go outside of ASU it isn't that hard since the transportation is very good here. You can take the buses to go to Tempe Market Place or Scottsdale Shopping Center to go shop or see a movie or you can take the light rail to downtown Phoenix and see all the sporting events there. I feel very safe in Tempe, which is one of the reasons why I chose ASU.

Administration: Like every school, they are very strict about drugs and alcohol but probably more strict about drugs. ASU is also very strict when it comes to quiet hours, especially during final weeks. If you are even remotely loud, you will get written up. They have CAs walk around the dorms at night to make sure no rules are being violated. When it comes to attendance, I was shocked on how strict they were about it. If you have a class that you met three times a week that takes attendance, you can only miss that class four times unexcused, and if you miss it more than four times than you are automatically dropped from that class.

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of option near campus especially on the north side of campus where College Ave and Mill Ave are near by. Most places close around 10 PM besides a few pizza places and taco bell. Not a lot places have student discounts and if they do, it's only a dollar or two you will save, so nothing special.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a huge drinker so I don't go out as much but most of my friends just drink in their dorm every night. But I do know a lot of people who go out almost every night and have a great time.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a freshman so I only know about living on campus, which is very expensive but so is living off campus where most of the rent is $600 a month. I don't have a car on campus since I'm out state but you really don't need one on campus.

2 College Junior

Administration: So many individuals I know have gone to parties and consumed a ridiculous amount of alcohol, all while underage. I have not heard of any big incidents that the police have actually broken up.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: You have to look around and find a place that actually looks good which isn't too hard to come by. But they are very very very expensive the closer you get to campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There are many options to choose from. But there are so many students that all go there at the exact same time that there is not point in waiting. Just pack a lunch kiddos.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The campus is right near Mill Ave. so there are several options in terms of food, drink, and/or entertainment.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: ASU students love to party. That's why greek life is no longer a huge part of our school, because they took it too far when it came to drinking and hazing and their parties lost their housing in the end.

Guys & Girls: ASU sadly is infamous for the poor behavior of students attending. Most students are interested in partying, drinking, and hookups. Recently every student and member of faculty was required to take a sexual conduct course online because of the lack of understanding on what "no means no" actually means.

Scholarships: At ASU and I assume any other college it all about getting in your information on time, preferably early. The longer you wait the less money there is for you later.

Majors: There are plenty of opportunities for internships and research

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was an easy process to get scholarships - I didn't have to apply separately, I was automatically considered for scholarship with my application. I didn't not apply for any other financial aid

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: ASU offered me a scholarship without me needing to apply for it. There scholarship, although small, was an incentive for me to consider going to college after planning not to go at all.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly all chains, but when it comes to family-owned establishments, they are quite superb.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: ASU doesn't really cater to students whom are under the age of 21; everything surrounding the campus are usually bars and clubs. In addition, the restaurants are mostly chains and bar food cuisines; there's nothing really out of the ordinary.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I really have no comment on this matter. Honestly, everyone is mostly accepting..

Scholarships: As with any school, you run into issues with financial aid. UNFORTUNATELY, my single mother is forced to pay $30K in tuition on her $60K salary. "You can take out loans.." No I cannot. Sadly, I do not have good credit.

Off-Campus Dining: I think it's great. Depends on location really. Mill surprisingly enough has great options.

Campus Housing: I didn't like it, but some love it! The housing process is easier though because they place you closest to where your classes will be.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Good, many choices (mostly Greek) But TPD is aware of almost everything.

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!
