3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Overall the campus is pretty standard. There are some places that are appealing and eye-catching whereas some just blend into the background. Some buildingsa are in defininte need of remodeling or renovating. Some parts of buildings are broken down and could possibly be a hazzard.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The people that I met were either a hit or a miss. There was never a person that was in the middle for me. Though I was fortunate enough to meet people that could turn into long-lasting relationships. With a population of over 50,000 students there is such a variety. A person can easily find people that they click with.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dormitory that I resided in was way too small and overpriced. The location of my dormitory was also a far distance from several of my classes. The few perks were that there was a dining hall within my dorm, my dormitory was one of the newest ones built, and the overall quality was nice.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The Tempe campus is very large - there is plenty to do and the school has done a great job to accommodate for such a large campus. There are several different libraries, computer labs, cafes, resting spots, dining options, and hangouts spaced throughout campus.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Because ASU is so large there is a great mix of students. You can tell from just walking around campus and looking at the list of different student organizations. Whatever you are or interested in - you will find a student group that will cater to your needs.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: If you get into Barrett it is great. The buildings are very new and spacious. The other dorms are being updated as well so you really can't go wrong with any of the dorms. Most are very spacious.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: ASU is known as a party school and for having attractive students. But it is also mixed with very hard-working students and well-balanced students who are very outgoing while taking their studies seriously.

Athletics: There is a lot of fan support for big sports like football. Not only from the students but also the community. The facilities are also very great - they were recently remodeled and expanded.

3 College Junior

Majors: My program did not have an abnormal application process - Political science.

4 College Junior

Majors: I enjoyed my political science major. Your first year you are sectioned off into groups and you will become very close with your group - you will have almost all the same classes your first year. I never had a big problem with the workload. It was a lot of reading and discussion based but I enjoyed it. Most of the professors are very well known in their niche topic and were very accessible. The department had a great program for internships and placing students in jobs.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a lot of options in terms of dining on campus. There are several dining halls in which dorm, many small shops and plenty of your typical fast food joints. There are also some great healthy options - ASU has its own sustainable cafe and restaurant available on campus. There are also small cafes around campus that offer food on the go - many are ethnic foods that are catered from local joints nearby.

Off-Campus Housing: There is plenty of very close off-campus housing options. There is very high quality, expensive and there is much cheaper homes very close as well. There is no shortage of housing off-campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a great experience at ASU. Getting into the Honors College was one of the greatest - it helped create a smaller community within such a large University. Even within the normal non-honors courses, I never had a huge class after my first year. Most professors are very accessible and very willing to help you out. The quality of the courses depend on your major. Some of the first year courses may be easy and require relatively little work but upper-division courses can be extremely challenging. Despite the reputation that ASU may have as a party school - there are some tough majors and quality education.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Because ASU is such a huge University - there is plenty of connections and alumni in which you can tap into. ASU offers a great career services and your department will also be very helpful. I never had a problem finding an internship or job each semester.

3 College Junior

Administration: The campus police are there to keep us safe - they provide great escort services for students who stay up late studying in libraries and just need company on their walk back to their dorms. I have never had a bad experience with the campus police.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is plenty to do around the Tempe area. The shopping center is nearby and mill avenue - which has all the nightclubs is within walking distance. There is also a lightrail right off campus that can take you, within 30 minutes, to the downtown area of Phoenix. The Phoenix Suns basketball and Diamondback baseball is downtown right off the lightrail stop. Most of the people who live in the Tempe area or either students or recent grads so there is no negative attitude towards students.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty of off-campus dining options nearby. There is a wide variety of food from Indian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Vietnamese, and your typical burger joints. There is a nice mix of fast food chains and local places around the campus. Most places also offer great student discounts and some even allow you to use your on-campus dining dollars from your meal plan to pay.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I was not involved in Greek life but there is a large presence on campus. But it does not rule you out from parties or activities if you are not involved in Greek life.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Political Science department has a great group of professors who are truly invested in their education. The workload is about average but the reading may be more than some of the other majors. The department also has great internship programs. For example there is a great program called Capitol Scholarships. Through this program, students get to spend a summer in DC working at various different federal agencies, non-profits, and private organizations. Another great internship is through the Arizona legislature. The faulty at ASU is well-connected.

Academics: One of the best benefits of attending such a large university is the resources available. ASU has one of the best resources for just about anything. While it may be easy to feel lost in the shuffle, it is easy to get to know your fellow students and professors in your majors. I rarely had a problem developing relationships with my professors - most are more than happy to have you come in for office hours to go over any problems that you are facing with the course material or just to talk in general.

Scholarships: ASU has a great search engine for scholarships

3 College Junior

Scholarships: As with any school, financial aid is a pain in the butt.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I had a boyfriend my only semester so far, so I wasn't exactly paying attention.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Tempe is a big town so there are lots of apartment complexes, houses and condos to rent. Generally, the further from ASU the cheaper but that's not necessarily a rule.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Tempe and the surrounding cities are all heavily populated with restaurants. You can find anything you're looking for at most times of the day!

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!
