5 College Junior

Academics: Interdisciplinary Studies – This is a very complex program. I believe it prepares us for the world better because it teaches you how to incorporate two subjects into one application. There is no specialization, like Nursing or Engineering, but in the professional arena one could work in many different departments because you have learned analytical thinking skills.

Health & Safety: I think that the campus is fairly safe. At night however there isn't a lot of security that I see.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: ASU's good reputation and its ability to excel in sports and extra-curricular activities make it special

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – the drug scene is not very visible, however, drinking can be fairly visible, not much pressure, unsure of enforcement

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: At ASU, there are a great deal of cultural events, there are always sports activities to either see or take part in, and the local area attractions include various great food spots.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: This is the worst part about attending ASU. They offer little to none financial aid for students, and on top of it all they keep raising tuition prices. I'm paying almost as much as an out-of-state student, even though I live in-state; absolutely ridiculous.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: What Tempe Has to Offer – There are a variety of different places to eat off campus. The only reason I did not give these awesome dining places an A+ is solely for the fact that ASU is too large of a campus to walk from to get food. I feel unsafe walking alone. Besides this, the food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and for the most part it's all cheap and delicious.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: A lot of nice looks downtown, but not much to do other than sporting events. ASU didn't do well in promoting downtown activities.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus dining was one of the few good things at ASU.

3 College Junior

Administration: The Tempe campus is right next to Mill Ave. which is the bar scene. The enforcement in that area is not severe. Although, if one were to try to have some people in their dorm it is not happeneing, especially in the downtown campus which has a restriction of one guest.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The cost to live near ASU is somewhat expensive. For example, the lightrail, which is our communities major public transportation system fromt he downtown campus to the tempe campus, is a major hot spot for apartments. Unfortunately, these apartments are somewhat expensive. They go per person and the lowest being $400 a month,not including utilities.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking at ASU is very expensive and can run into the hundreds of dollars to get a decent spot. My parking pass this year was over $700.00. They ticket for every little thing and if you want cheap parking you have to be a long way from your classes.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Sun Devils – Lately the Sun Devils have not been much to cheer for. The fans are great, but the teams are not so good.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a diverse number of churches with in walking distance from campus,Catholic, Muslim, LDS, Lutheran, Unitaterian, Methodist you name it ASU has it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: its not its all hyped up to be around ASU. the cops are literally out to get you. Any good party is broken up. The only freedom is mill street when you hit 21.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the police are very strict in the area but there are some shady parts around the campus.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Getting Better – With the addition of the Light Rail in Phoenix transportation for students has improved greatly.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Vista Del Sol – It was just like having my own off-campus apartment. A great way to still enjoy campus life but still get a taste of independence.

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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!
