3 College Senior

Diversity: Diverse nationalities of professors, but strong accents sometimes make learning experience difficult

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good professors. Easy to navigate campus. Good course offerings.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Campus is active, many clubs, large library, not good about campus traditions. I have never been to a "campus tradition" event.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is a good amount of on-campus security

4 College Senior

Administration: Strict on "walk-only" zones, no bike traffic in certain areas on campus. Very strict on parking passes and restricted parking violations

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lots of fake people, not a big relationship school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Manzanita hall which is brand new after a couple of years of refurbishment. My room was small though I only shared the bathroom with my 3 other roommates. My biggest gripe was the quality of the rooming facilities. In my brandnew apartment things were falling apart in the first few weeks. This includes the wood flooring being pulled up and hot water being intermittent. On campus housing is required for all freshman with very few exceptions. Housing is assigned by major. Barrett is assigned to those in the Honors College. Hassayampa is for business majors. Manzanita is for Liberal Arts Majors. San Pablo is for the CLAS academy. Pablo Verde (all) is for Engineers. And the other options are mostly for those in arts majors. The best options are Barrett, Hassayampa, Manzanita, and San Pablo. If your an arts or Engineering major you'll live but it will be subpar compared to the others. Dining options are close to all the dorms and all the dorms are close to campus.

Athletics: Great facilities. The football stadium is awesome, though they are doing construction right now to improve it. Basketball has a nice big arena. Baseball has moved off campus to one of the facilities used for Spring Training for the MLB. The football team ended the 2013 season ranked in the top 15 in the nation. The gym is great and was expanded just last year. Football games are definitely something not to be missed.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: This campus is awesome for diversity. Through my first year I made friends a person from China and India very cool. With a campus of this size you will meet every kind of people good and bad. There is plethora of different clubs that one can take part in with a wide range of interests, definitely check out club rush. Large acceptance of those with different orientations. Large religion resources on or near campus including a Mosque nearby for the large Muslim community on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Plethora of restaurant options including lots of Asian( Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai) as well as many American options. There are a couple of options for those looking for healthier food including the Chop Shop (on University) and Engrained. There some good discounts you just need to search for them. Cost can go from cheap to expensive though there are many options on both sides of the extreme.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It depends. I've known people that got caught smoking weed in their dorm by the campus police and all that happened was them being moved to a different dorm. The biggest enforcers are the RA's that were probably never invited to the parties as a freshman. If you are a tad bit noisy on the weekends they will be knocking. Its mostly just a slap on the wrist kind of system. Dont mess with the off campus police though.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: If you're looking into this school you may hear of Mill Avenue. This is the big bar area in this part of Phoenix and is all 21+ though when you do become of age it is a pretty cool spot. Phoenix has all 4 major sports teams, though unless you have a car its really tough to go see a hockey or football game. There are multiple great malls that are just a 30 min bus ride away which is really nice. Phoenix is not real culture rich city, unless you call the Mexican restaurants on every corner culture, so dont expect it. If you are into baseball most of the teams come to the Phoenix area in March for spring training and most of the venues are pretty close. Overall this part of Phoenix is very safe, just stay out of south Phoenix. Most of the locals have attended ASU so there doesn't seem to be a stigma.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Lots of free tutoring resources available though with somewhat fluctuating effectiveness. The gym is pretty much brand new and so is the memorial union. In the year that Ive been here Ive seen three new buildings go up on campus and most of the buildings are fairly new.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This is not a big tradition school. Most of the spaces are nice and well kept especially the grounds. Not many people study outside as it is usually too hot. Very nice and new gym that has a plethora of courts and weight rooms for all kinds of activities.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: To me the amount of sexual assaults on campus is average for a college of this size. There are many very active groups that crusade against assault (WOW , MANUP). Campus police are very visible and the nearby Tempe police are very active in the area. I have never felt unsafe on-campus even at night.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Asu is very helpful for students filling out the FASFA. They also give out a plethora of scholarships, especially to out of state students.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not really sure didn't really associate with people in the fraternities or sororities.

4 College Student

Administration: The police are pretty strict. ASU was apparently the #1 party school, but now it's not thanks to the authorities.

3 College Student

Diversity: I've found out that there are quite a bit of down low gay students on campus, but there are quite a bit of out students as well. as far as religion and ethnic background goes, it's ASU, so lots of students are international, especially Brazilians.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I need more aid and I don't know where I'm going to get it, but they do cover almost everything. Just not housing or anything major other than my tuition.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of places available are places I've never heard of or eaten at. Almost all places I've seen have a discount for ASU students and are located within walking distance, or at least bus/shuttle distance

4 College Student

Academics: I find Java for my Computer Systems Engineering major a little difficult, but it's manageable and gets easier.

4 College Student

Academics: There's quite a bit of classes and homework and tests, but if you actually put in effort, you can succeed like me and even get on the dean's list. Office hours are always an option and getting help from other students is too. The only drawback for me is when I get professors with thick accents.

Athletics: There's so much emphasis on big sporting events and supporting our teams. I lived right behind the football stadium, so the fireworks were thunderous. There's even spirit week-like things we do to support our teams like wearing certain clothes or colors.

4 College Student

Local Area: I love transportation because the orbit buses are free and take the same general routes as the other buses. There's a lot of shops and sightseeing to do around Tempe Marketplace as well as on Mill Avenue.

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!
