3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, ASU definitely gives a great freshman experience. It's probably not something I would do for 4 years though.

2 College Freshman

Administration: Not gonna lie, police crack down hard on parties, and several people get MIC's. But for the most part, if you're careful, you'll get home safely without the campus security knowing.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There's definitely a melting pot of ethnic groups at ASU.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Besides the excruciating summer heat, the weather is absolutely amazing. Is there any other school on the west coast that throws raging pool parties in February? Definitely not.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The safety escort is probably my lifesaver over the weekend. Parking is definitely ridiculous here--the towing is insane and the parking spots are normally full on weekends, so people normally get around by taxi.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The best places are the Barret dining hall and the Memorial Union

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Overall, ASU is looked at as a big party school in which almost anyone can get in, but really, ASU holds very highly ranked programs. The Walter Cronkite school of Journalish is very well known as well as the business program here at ASU.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Overall, the off-campus housing for upperclassmen is pretty good. They may be a little bit pricey, but the facilities are up to date, and modern.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's very much a city with a lot to do. There is great shopping on Mill Avenue, and Fashion Square in Scottsdale just 15 minutes away. There's always something fun to do at night.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Since I attend the West campus, there are not many teenage clubs. However, the schools shuttle drives to each campus so that students can still engage in activities on other campuses, especially the Tempe campus since there are more bars/clubs and parties.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: In case of emergencies, ASU has "blue lights" set up so that if anyone feels that they are in danger anywhere on campus, they can push the button on one of these and security will come right away.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Permit costs are actually pretty cheap but finding a spot is a hassle. Then you have to worry about moving your car to the other side of campus on game days

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity Sports are mediocre at ASU it seems like some people enjoy the sports while others don't. Our football team is mediocre but our Basketball team is good. Although ASU is a D1 school it doesn't always seem like it.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is very good they have some of the best choices near campus. Chiptotle, In-n-out, Chili's, Jack in the Box, McDonalds, Jersey Mikes..etc

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life on a scale of 1-10 is about a 7 at ASU. You always see the girls with their sorority bags or the boys with their greek shirts. More than half the campus is involved Greek Life

5 College Freshman

Technology: ASU is totally a MAC campus. Every classroom you go into has a MAC computer with everything you need. The computer commons even sells more of MACs then PC's

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Arizona State University for my major so far I have only taken one class that actually relates to my major. Most of the professors at this campus are very helpful they tell you to come to office hours and help with tutoring. The academics at ASU are amazing

3 College Freshman

Administration: Not Too Much – It's not too strict on campus, anti drug usage is enforced. but there are a variety of freedoms. the campus is public

4 College Freshman

Local Area: ASU tempe campus is a pretty adjustable and adaptable environment...almost anywhere you need to go is walking distance

4 College Student

Weather: If anything the summer is a little hard, because it's so hot all the walking makes you sweaty. Ew.

4 College Student

Diversity: So Many Languages. I walk around campus and here so many different languages, its exciting and refreshing.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I love the selection around ASU, subway, wendys, taco bell, sushi 101, and theres also all the places on mill ave, which includes some burger joins, another good sushi place, theres also a panda express.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There could be more scholarships, but they have made it really easy to search all of the scholarships ASU has to offer.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Everyone works really hard to get into the nursing program at ASU. The program is really great. All the teachers really care about your success. Everyone in your block will become a close nit group. The program is very difficult, but if you made it to the program, you'll make it through the program.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is not big at the ASU Downtown Campus. If your looking for Greek Life, go to the Tempe Campus. There are no Greek Houses at the Downtown campus.

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!
