Campus Housing: The dorm buildings look nice but I've never been inside

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live in the Tempe area, but I've visites, an in driving around it looks nice

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Government aid was easy to get but I've had difficulties finding scholarships

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe in Tempe.

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus seems fairly comparable to other schools I've attemded

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I've only been to one cafe type restaurant in Tempe, and it was ok.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I see ASU represented on ESPN all the time, so I assume they're pretty good!

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I assume the best! I attend ASU online though so I don't really know...

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't had too much experience with the health and safety departments. But the facilities appear to be clean and organized and the people who work there are all very nice and helpful.

3 College Junior

Administration: The school is extremely strict on parking. I'm sure they make fortunes fault with all the parking tickets they issue. Parking passes are either in accessible or at the very edge of campus where classes aren't held. There are also strict policies about alcohol and underaged drinking in general. It is simply not tolerated.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Tempe Arizona is definitely a college town. There are really cool bars and cute places to shop on Mill as well as many places to dine on and off campus. ASU's teams are great and the entire school exhibits an extreme amount of school spirit at any given time. The city is a very exciting place to be, day and night!

3 College Senior

Academics: Depends on your major and/or department that you are in. It widely differs based on this alone.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Diversity is welcome & accepted on ASU's campus. There is always the minority that is uncapping, but that is Arizona in general. ASU is a great campus for people from around the world.

Campus Housing: I've only lived in the Barrett dorms, and all I can say is that there is a reason that people choose to attend ASU for Barrett's dorms. They are some of the best in the country, and are very spacious, clean, and new. Palo Verde is one of the places, that upon visiting, I am glad I do not live in. Avoid PV if you can. Manzanita (Manzy) recently underwent renovation, so there's that, but if you get to choose, choose the Hassayampa or Barrett dorms.

Overall Experience: ASU is ranked in the top five for employers and recruiters, so there's that. In my experience, Mayo Clinic, Medtronic, and other big biotech companies regularly come to ASU for hiring and internship-seeking. Many businesses and law firms also recruit from ASU's biannual career fairs

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Soooooo much scholarship money available to practically everybody. Work hard enough in high school and you will be rewarded handsomely. The person I'm dating right now is going to graduate debt-free, and she had a 3.4 GPA in high school, all because the financial aid ASU gave her was so helpful. Only downside is that they will not upgrade your scholarship if you work harder in college, so do well on your SAT/ACT's and get that high GPA! The financial aid is one of the main reasons people choose ASU.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is awesome, no more to say there. The health services system at ASU is somewhat inefficient, and due to the huge student body, getting an appointment urgently is almost impossible. However, once you get to the appointment, the staff is very professional and non-judgemental.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students at ASU are some of the most accepting I've encountered. I'm a pretty scrawny, nerdy guy, and I'm friends with huge buff guys and smoking hot girls, because the students here care more about who you are than how you look. On the off-chance that you encounter a horny frat guy or sorority chick, the rest of the campus will gang up on them and shun them for not being accepting of people's differences. I can be myself here, and will find other people like me too. Oh, and the things that the lists say about how hot our student body is? Completely true. Only difference is that those girls and guys you're staring at are pre-med, pre-law, and pre-tty awesome.

Athletics: The spirit around ASU is intoxicating. In high school, I couldn't care less for our state-championship winning sports teams, but because of ASU's spirit, fan support, and team performance, I can't help but don my maroon-and-gold pitchfork shirt and start singing the fight song. Admission to athletic events are free for students, so that's always nice, and our teams actually WIN games, making attendance worth it. Football and basketball are definitely the fan favorites (despite the basketball team having a losing record most of the time), but you'll find enjoyment watching everything else too. The club sports scene is up-and-coming, and the creation of a new club sport is not uncommon (it's actually encouraged by the university).

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I would come back to ASU for the food that surrounds it. It is seriously that great. With authentic Indian food, cheap and delicious ramen bowls, the best (non-posh) burger you'll find in the Southwest, and a slew of open-til'-3 AM options, you WILL NOT be starved for options at ASU. There's Greek, Italian (pizza and pasta), Indian (both North Indian and South Indian), Japanese (multiple ramen and sushi places), Chinese, American (burgers, hot dogs, and sub sandwiches), and most notably, Mexican. Seriously, the Mexican food near ASU is to die for in terms of deliciousness and cheapness (without sacrificing quality of course). Plus, after you wake up from your food coma the next morning, there are plenty of old, well-established breakfast places by campus that offer everything from vegan and light to meaty and hearty.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I never really partied much, but from what I've heard from my fellow students, they're amazing.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an engineering major and a student at Barrett, so my opinion may be a bit unorthodox. I have only had one professor that I would call less-than-desirable, and that was only because he was extremely egotistical. All of my other professors have been fair in their workload and ready to spend as much time as needed to help their students understand concepts. Also, I should note that the Barrett faculty is exceptionally great, and one of my Barrett professors even helped me start my own club! If you can get into Barrett, then ASU should jump to one of your top schools. If not, the engineering professors are still fantastic, nice, and caring, so ASU as a safety school actually is not that bad.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The on-campus dorms are usually chosen by most students, unless they have money to spend. If one can afford the nicer apartments and houses near campus, they won't be disappointed. However, if a student gets so angry with the on-campus housing, there are plenty of cheap, safe options around campus, but oftentimes in these situations the quality of the actual rooms isn't great. Safety is constantly paramount, though, and crime is not a bother for an ASU student living near campus. I'd recommend living off campus with a roommate if you can.

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!
