Academics: The math department and faculty are great, classes are appropriately difficult, students are fun, lots of opportunity. This is all due to the department/faculty. The department gets little support from administration (after all, it doesn't bring in much money). The math building is falling apart. Bathrooms constantly flooded, entire building's drinking fountains out for almost a year, consistently broken elevators, poor ventilation/AC.

Guys & Girls: Nothing very notable. Seems like an average place to meet guys/girls.

Overall Experience: The faculty are great. Research opportunities galore. The administration is not. Michael Crow is like Michael Bloomberg on steroids. Too big. Lots of bureaucracy. Lots of fees. Wasn't allowed to test out of classes in many cases, when it seemed completely reasonable. Was forced into classes that were a complete waste of time.

Overall Experience: Classes aren't always taught well (community college classes are much better), however ASU's emphasis isn't teaching. If you're interested in research, you will love it. Many classes are taught by world class professors. Take advantage of their office hours. Ask them how to get involved in research. You will be glad you're at ASU if you just take advantage of its best aspects.

Overall Experience: Good mentoring on campus, though the best mentoring (by far) comes from faculty advisors which are specified on department websites.

Greek Life: I have had great experiences with members of Greek Life, having attended events and made good friends. I never joined a frat. I wouldn't, given the atmosphere on campus. It seems a vast majority of students look down on fraternities.

Off-Campus Housing: Decent options for off campus housing. It gets expensive the closer you get to campus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good dining options off campus. Quite a few spots have been featured on Food Network.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: The typical party scene at ASU is kind of gross, though probably what a lot of people are looking for. Fortunately, ASU is also diverse. Lots of alternatives.

1 College Senior

Administration: ASU was always great about busting people for biking in no walk zones, smoking on campus or going one minute over at parking meters. When I actually needed help from campus police they were far from helpful.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I was put on some kind of "academic hold" that blocked my loans one semester due to a "computer glitch." Took an entire day to get a supervisor who could fix the issue. Generally felt unsupported.

5 College Senior

Campus Food: I've visited several colleges, and none come close to the dining options at ASU. There's a fancy (but affordable) restaurant upstairs in the MU, called Engrained, that puts every other campus' dining to shame.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many of the local places give out coupons for college students so we can get cheap deals.

4 College Junior

Administration: Teachers are willing to setup additional meetings to help students if the student cannot make the teacher's set office hours. This has been very helpful.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Most things were resolved online and financial aid transfers were smooth and reliable! Do any requirements early, i.e. filling out forms, to-do items on school page, etc and your chances of getting rewards are better.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Barrett Dining is good but the fast food places in the MU are just the average greasy fatty foods that fill you up but make you feel gross.

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus living here is pretty expensive for the most part, although you can find some affordable places near campus. Lots of the apartment complexes are pretty nice, and have a lot to offer, although they can be pretty trashy on the inside sometimes. As long as you do your homework before you decide on a place, you should be A okay.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants around campus. The Tempe campus has the most off-campus choices, but the other campus do have their share.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party life here at ASU is great. Yes ASU parties, but we also work very hard during the week and only party when we can. A lot of the students that party that I know have high GPA's, do their work, and party on the weekend only after they completed their work. If you can find the right balance, the party scene here is one of the best. Frat parties are very selective and get shut down pretty quickly, so the best way to go is house or apartment parties with friends. There are parties everywhere during the weekend, you just have to get the address.

Administration: The administration is very strict in some aspects, but for the most part they do a pretty good job. They are strict in areas such as drug and alcohol usage, but I do not have a problem with that, and any underage student shouldn't either. They do their job, but sometimes they can get fed up and can get kind of rude. As long as you mind your own business, take care of yourself, and follow basic rules you should have no problem with the administration here at ASU.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Arizona State has great programs, and great opportunities, but they do come at a steep cost. They give freshman incentives to attend and then as soon as you become a sophomore they don't give you as much financial aid. I can't blame the school entirely, because this is a nation wide ordeal when dealing with the government and money. I say do your research and look beyond the school grants and scholarships, you may find more money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall definitely has its good days and its bad days. The downtown campus dining hall more specifically in this case. It has a lot of options, but for the most part it has a lot of the same food and its not the best quality. I would like to see them make more of an effort to bring us higher quality food, or at least more of a variety.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The downtown campus is great. Taylor Place is right in the center of every building you may need to go to. Everything is within a 5 minute walk or less. The campus is always clean, and security is everywhere, so you'll always feel safe. The campus is a mix of modern and classes style, and everything is offered. You will never be bored, and there is always something to do, whether its a ASU thrown event, or just hanging out with friends.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not too bad, a little sketchy

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many restaurants or fast food joints around

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!
