4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You Meet Great People – I enjoy being at ASU more and more everyday. I honestly love going to almost every one of classes. Without them I would not have met the friends that I get to hang out with everyday. I feel so great being here and being on my own. My only issue with my experience here is my roommate; a party girl who pretends like I don't exist. But with a positive attitude I go about my days and my ways. I have a great time going to sporting events, seeing movies, riding my bike around, swimming, and just hanging out. With ASU being in the city there is always tons of stuff to do. For those of you Sundevils that find yourself saying, "I'm bored," you definitely aren't taking advantage of all this place has to offer.

Weather: Hot Sun – It's Phoenix and I think we all can associate Phoenix with the big hot sun. Walking around from class to class in the hottest months is not so fun, but when it comes to it it's all about attitude and your habits on how to handle the sun. I personally love the heat even though I sweat like crazy! But it's always pool weather and the sun is great for Vitamin D. You just have to be smart in the sun; drink tons of water and wear sunscreen!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking More Than Drugs – There really are a lot of students who talk about getting wasted and drunk on the weekends, but it's a scene that you don't have to be apart of. Arizona State gets a lot of attention for being a huge party school, but I have not felt any pressure to drink nor do am I forced to be apart of the scene. I personally have not had to deal with any drug abuse here as well.

Campus Quality: Programs Are Hands on. A lot of the engineering programs here are very hands on and lab based

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Free Food at Events, but No Where to Go. Living on campus provies the opporunity to ease the transition of living and home to living on ones own as an adult. There were many events and activities held through out the semester that drew students out of hibernation in their dorms and helped them meet new people. Not to mention there was a lot of free food at these events - a huge plus for any college student. Though, this was at the Polytechnic Campus so there isn't much else to do nearby the school. Overall, not bad.

4 College Junior

Technology: Always Connected. The computer center, which has tons of computers so one is always available, also has a lot of sofa seating for those with laptops. The wifi works everywhere on campus, not just the computer lab. And I can even go off campus to one of the surrounding businesses for lunch and still access the schools wireless internet. I love it.

5 College Junior

Academics: Everything I Need.
I chose ASU because of their language programs, and I am thrilled with the success I am having earning my spanish degree. The professors make themselves very available to students to talk and discuss grades or anything else to help excel in the classes. Advising is also very helpful, and the honor society just adds more incentive to do my best.

Off-Campus Dining: Food & Dining Off-Campus – ASU is located in a great spot of Tempe. Just under 2 miles away is Tempe Marketplace which has some good shopping, movies, and restaurants. Personally, my favorite places are located in Arcadia - about a 15 minute drive from campus. But some of my favorite near campus spots include Cartel (coffee), Cornish Pasty (pasties-delicious food), and Casey Moore's (a great little tavern/restaurant and bar). Each of these places is reasonably priced, and of course Mill Avenue is home to several great places as well.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are several computer labs on campus, and each library has a great deal of computers as well. I have a laptop that I always have with me when on campus, but when there have been times where I needed to print something off last minute there are always openings on computers in each of the labs/libraries. Wireless on campus is pretty strong and trustworthy. However off campus (in the dorms) it (wifi) can be a little iffy...but then again we are the biggest school in the country, which means the most students, and with that many students trying to log on at once there are bound to be jams and hold ups in the system.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love It – I enjoy attending Arizona State a lot. There is always something to do and ways to get involved with the school. Its just a great environment to be in.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: the school is really strict on alcohol and drugs and keeps a tight hold on that issue. there are police everywhere and even undercover cops monitering.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: it is not the best food but it's tolerable if your really hungary. it is just blan and theres not much meat or choices

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Virtually Unheard of – What Greek life? I haven't heard a thing about anything Greek and I have been there 2 years. Maybe if you look really hard?

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Wasn't ASU sued for passing up non-minority scholarship applicants for minorities? They are definitely very accommodating.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Phoenix Is a Little Rough, but You Gotta Be Tough – Phoenix/Tempe can get expensive! But if you can handle a tougher neighborhood you can slide by pretty easily. Just be careful in the two cities.

1 College Junior

Transportation: The parking for this campus is outrageous. I've visited schools twice the size of ASU and their parking is less half the price of ASU's cheapest parking permit. And they have just barely finished installing covers, which is ridiculous considering the extreme heat in the area. Even still, there are parking spaces around campus that still don't have parking covers.

1 College Junior

Athletics: None of the ASU teams are any good, which means only the most hardcore sports fans or lonely alumni attend the games. There are very few average ASU students attending the games, which makes going to see a football/basketball game pretty useless.

1 College Junior

Parking: Way overpriced parking is not worth it and keeps my savings on edge, while there is more than enough space for parking in certain areas, but they are off limits

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Best Spots in Town – There is a huge variety of places to eat in and around campus. It's all here.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Best Isnt Good Enough – no matter how hard you try there are just way too many students at ASU that will out do you for scholarships. no chance at all.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The MU – its the best place to feed my type 2 diabetes cravings.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Stay at Home – nightlife is fun if you have a fake ID otherwise, house parties is where its at.

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather at ASU is awesome! People complain if it gets below 60 degrees, which is not very often. It is all sunshine :)

3 College Freshman

Administration: Party School – ASU is technically a dry campus and the rules they have written down may seem strict, but they hardly, if ever, enforce the rules. ASU does not have a party school reputation for nothing!

4 College Freshman

Academics: Be in Barrett – I am in Barrett, The Honors College at ASU and am also in the WP Carey Academy for the business school this gives me many extra opportunities. The workload may be a bit harder, but the program is great. Barrett just got new facilities, so it is super nice!

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!
