4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Upperclassmen Dorms Experience – Living in the upperclassmen dorms definitely has its advantages. Especially in the dorms im living at which is the Barretts Honors College Dorms. These dorms have its own dining and fitness center, as well as an entertainment room. Its comfortable to live in and the study and private rooms are very helpful too.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarship application is a hassle. Most are need based off of taxes, but they do not realize that, that does not compare to what people have to spend money on. People who look like they may have money might not, and need help to.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is diverse, yet mostly about partying, which is fun at times but people also need to focus on school.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Took all the work out of my hands to get me my financial aid! Even offered a direct deposit option to put any extra money after expenses directly into my account!

Campus Quality: Lively Dorms – School spirit can be felt everywhere, and on-campus residents take it to another level! With great community assistants and awesome residence hall activities, dorms are definately the place to experience the college life. The convenience of being close to everything from Scottsdale Fashion Square to Mill Ave makes it all the more while.

Scholarships: I come from a well off family but still received some financial aid. I thought that was great because I am coming from out of state.

Administration: Campus Police – Campus police is very strict. Underage drinking in dorms is highly frowned upon and a lot of parties get busted.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Bar/Club Scene – Mill Avenue is very close to campus and offers many bars and clubs for those students 21 and older.

5 College Senior

Weather: Hot for the first two and last month or so of school, besides that it is perfect.

Drug Safety: The university is very strict on drugs and alcohol, but that doesn't stop students. Marijuana and many hard drugs are prevalent among the student body, its just part of the culture. As a non drug user I find it easy to resist but for people that are easily influenced, this could pose a problem.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Ask for a Scholarship – I had good grades and test scores coming out of high school but nothing spectacular,and ended up getting a 10,000$ scholarship. They usually don't outright offer you an academic scholarship, you need to ask for them to review your portfolio. There are stipulations to keeping scholarships I think for most it is a 3.25 GPA and 12 credit hours per semester.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Choices – There are TONS of places to live in Tempe. The rent will be more expensive than your average college town but it is easy to find a nice place to live close to campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: They just opened the Barrett Honors College cafeteria which serves really good tasting and good quality food. Other than that it is just your typical large university dining halls.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: everything is close, if not in biking or walking distance there are busses and taxi's and a light rail.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: So So – its not a big deal if you are in greek life, however for boys it is easier to party if you are in a frat

Scholarships: Difficult for Those in the Gray Area – I am happy to say that I received my scholarship on time and in full amount, but I will admit that I was hindered. Not being a citizen on this country, the financial aid department questioned my ability to receive this scholarship without taking into consideration that I might have some other type of Visa. In the end, I got my scholarship, but only because I hired a lawyer to prove my "innocence"

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Dry, Dry Desert....With Lots of Air Conditioning – Living in Arizona, it's bound to be hot. But the ASU campus I attend has the greenest foundations in the valley, supplying us with tons of large, energy-efficient fans that keep the students, as well as the classrooms, refreshed and cool-bodied. Because of this, everyone looks forward to reaching the classroom after walking in the hot sun.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Common Sense Is Commonly Used – The security around the school, though they may be of large numbers, are very well-schooled when it comes to what is acceptable and what isn't. I say this because they know when a bunch of students huddled around are just friends rough-housing or actually in a fight. But the students are also very well taught in what is considered appropriate behavior on campus and what isn't.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Looks Like a Melting Pot – ASU has a wide variety of people that attend. There are students from foreign countries that come. Many people are at different activities, at times homogeneous groups gather, but there quality and quantity representations of diversity.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Student Discounts – Many places offer some kind of discount. It is important to have that valuable student ID with you at all times.

4 College Junior

Academics: Think Tank – ASU offers and vast array of courses. This state school has several mini campuses to be available for the adult work force. Almost every need can be met in course of study and availability of classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Mature Enough to Handle It – I have been to several other state universities. I have enjoyed Arizona State because I am mature enough to handle the responsibilities of life and school needs.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are used on campus. Alcohol is more visible than the drugs, except smoking during on campus activities.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Bar/Club Scene – Right down the street are several awesome bars and eateries. One could enjoy themselves as they desire and only have a few short blocks to get back home. This area is good if you have no transportation. Live, learn and repeat!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Pretty Strict – the scholarship criteria is pretty lax at the selection process but prevents many from continuing to keep it because after a lax minded first year many find it hard to keep their gpa at the required level even though they are able to do so after the second year

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!
