3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are options for a large variety of tastes and cravings.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is easy to contact and usually quite understanding.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Initially I got all I needed quickly and easily but then a mix-up with in-state citizenship occured.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I personally don't party very much but when I have gone to them, everyone was friendly and inviting and active.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a lot of variety and quality on the main campus as well as a multitude of fast food options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing for the ASU polytechnic campus is spacious and convenient.

Campus Food: While some of the options in the dining halls or at devils diner can be criticized for lacking in variety from day to day and week to week, the fast food and alternate dining options provided on campus are varied enough that a student can eat enough without getting bored. Devil's Greens is also a nice substitute when trying to find a healthy meal, however other than that, most food falls on the more fattening side. The Pod Market is a favorite of mine because it provides canned options or Trader Joe style meals that can be made in the dorms, which comes in handy when one has too much work or studying and can't find time to go out to eat.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is, as one might expect, a mixed bag at times, however it is generally a very pleasant experience. The residence halls are kept very clean and have a new, modern aesthetic about them. All of the residence halls are within a quick walk to every class a student would possibly be enrolled in. Additionally, there are a variety of dining options available. some of the Halls actually include a dining hall or market. The food provided at these cafeterias is decent however after a few consecutive meals there, a student can hardly be blamed for wanting a change. That change is easy to find because all of the halls are within easy walking or biking distance to any of the restaurants on mill or the MU, which is the center of activity on campus. The rooms themselves are generally spacious and clean- it's the people you room with you might need to watch out for! overall, on campus living is a generally pleasurable and enjoyable experience for a first year student.

Majors: It is difficult to get scholarships if you are not a freshman.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Many convenient options, and it's most likely cheaper to live off-campus. I enjoy it a lot more than dorm-life.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are resources on campus to get free rides or escorts if you don't feel safe walking by yourself.

3 College Junior

Majors: I have not had any internships. I plan to shadow a genetic counselor for some experience, but this was not organized through ASU.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love the variety of ethnic cuisines and vegetarian options.

2 College Junior

Administration: The campus is way more strict about enforcing the "walk-only zones" and j-walking on campus than enforcing anything of actual value, like underage drinking. It's ridiculous.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I never had any interest in joining a sorority. Most people find "Greeks" to be obnoxious. I don't know if they ever go to class. The sorority girls always seem to be hogging up space in front of the Memorial Union blinding everyone with their rhinestone-covered attire.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's extremely expensive, but probably a lot newer and nicer than other colleges' options. I lived in the Barrett dorms for 2 years. It definitely gets old. I'm currently living off-campus right now and it saves me a lot of money and it's nice to be away from the dorm shenanigans.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I don't normally have any problems.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Tempe has a lot of diversity in age groups and cultures, which makes it an interesting place to live. There are a lot of different foods to try, and often, there are student discounts closer to ASU. Safety is a concern and I definitely wouldn't want to be walking around alone at night.

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!
