1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do not feel safe at all when it comes to night time. I think they should have more securities on campus and more emergency poles in case of emergencies. The crime rate in Tempe, Az. is high.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Barrett the Honors College – We have an great honors college that provides a closer relationship with your professors and more opportunites to succeed.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Power Rd. Whether you go North or South on Power Rd. you will find several differents restaurant to dine at. You will find all sorts of different cuisines and tastes.

5 College Freshman

Technology: We have a great compuer common that comes along with an excellent tech staff. Not only can you get help with the computer they provive, but if you are having trouble with your own computer, the staff will help you solve your problem.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Choices – The only problem with the housing around the campus is that you go from really poor housing to really good housing, but you have to reach alittle further to get the best price and the best quality.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The variety is outstanding and the food is always pretty good. I would eat there every day if that was what was closest to me.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Could Be Better – The area does not have that much, as far as ASU west goes. The Tempe campus is much larger and has many more options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Totally Going Green – Arizona State is really unique on the Tempe campus with its green movement. It recently opened up a sustainable living facility that allows students to grow their own veggies and such, and we even have an entire department devoted to global sustainability research. It's definitely one of the more eco-friendly campuses around, which I think is really admirable; plus, ASU makes it very easy for the student body to feel like they're participating in the green movement, which just makes me want to continue recycling!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People Come Here to Party...Period. I actually have few complaints regarding the academics here. Advisors are easily accessible and really willing to help you out, and my major-specific professors have been nothing short of amazing. The social life is really dependent on partying and the people you meet while getting drunk and high. As a straightedge kid, it's difficult to meet people who don't think I'm a buzzkill - and the huge campus makes it close to impossible to see people very often. Your floormates are really your only chance to get to meet people without having to sacrifice an arm and a leg...or a liver.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Not Entirely Enforced – Arizona State is a dry campus, but there are in-dorm parties all the time. RAs are pretty lax about maintaining the dry campus state as long as things don't get too out of control, but I have seen a few parties busted for being too loud or rowdy. There are lots of security guards and on-campus police officers that have a good track record of keeping drunk students under control and watching over any possible DUIs, though, so there are times when strictness is enforced.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have yet to receive any money. They say my parents make too much. But they don't help me with school at all. I pay for everything on my own, so I think that is unfair. But speaking with a financial aid officer will help a lot. They can help with any questions you may have and provide websites for scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at ASU is a lot of fun. I have a lot of friends in sororities and frats. There are a lot of formals and functions.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Students who are 21 and older have a huge variety of things to do at night. Bars, clubs, house parties. Bar and clubs on Mill Ave and in Old Town Scottsdale are the most popular. Transportation is nice. There is the light rail, that will take you basically anywhere in tempe. And cabs usually aren't too busy so they only take about a half an hour to get to you. Nightlife for underage students on the other hand is a little more difficult. I personally have a lot of friends who are 21, when we all go to house parties they can drink, but the cops are way too strict in Tempe. Cops usually break up house parties fairly quickly and hand out MIC's like they are candy. Your best bet for underaged students would be Frat parties. They are fun, lots of dancing and less cops.

Health & Safety: I always feel like that campus is a very safe place. Cause it is the life center of student who is well educated and good quality.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I would describe the girls and guys at Arizona State University really attractive. Greek life is really big at ASU, so if you want a social life, then you definitely would want to look into sororities and fraternities. The people at ASU dress very casual, and according to the weather. The relationships between the boys and girls at ASU would cliquey. Everyone hangs out with their type. It is not very diverse. Many people of different races come to this school, but stick with their own.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I would say that ASU is probably mostly white, but we also have a lot of international students. Diversity of religion is very big on campus and there are different political beliefs. Most have a club on campus that you could join if you wish to.

3 College Junior

Technology: I have my own personal computer that I use so I don't pay much attention to the computers at school, but ASU's wireless service works great. Their blackboard site right now is at least working better then when they updated it at the beginning of the summer. Not sure why they updated, because their last version was great.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Too Expensive – if you can afford to pay 3800 dollars a semester to live there, they are great. but the food sucks.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The Gym Is Great – i love the gym, there are always people there. some of the equipment needs to be fixed and the basketball court has a couple weak spots but other than that, it is perfect.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Lots to Do – I always say that I feel younger every time I walk around Tempe. It has such a lively and vibrant feel.

4 College Senior

Academics: Can Be Challenging If You Want – If you want to be academically challenged then Arizona State University is definitely right for you. Of course there are the "easy classes" but if you truly came to college to learn and expand your mind then there are classes and professors on campus that will greatly benefit you. ASU has a great Honors program and plenty of undergraduate research opportunities. If you're not afraid to seek out challenges you'll fit right in here.

1 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Things Could Be Better – Financial aid screwed me and several other people over. I do not get any assistance from my family, along with my boyfriend and he could not come back this semester. We fend for ourselves and just because our families have bad credit, does not mean that we do too.

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: I absolutely love the weather. Never goes below 55 and it is already in the 90s and it is the middle of March. Perfect!

1 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Pricey! The prices of apartments in my area are ridiculous. You have to go at least 5 miles away from the campus to find something decently priced that college students are able to afford.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: everything about it is perfection you wont regret coming

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!
