The drug scene (including alcohol) is directly dependent on who you hang out with. ASU is a dry campus so drug and alcohol policy is always heavily enforced.

Arizona State University has an unbelievable amount of choices for majors and classes. The professors are very available with office hours and supplemental instruction. However, the introductory classes are very large and impersonal at times.

It's fun and there's always campus activities going on, as well as off-campus fun. It's very easy to meet people and despite the school's huge enrollment, you will run into a lot of the same people on a daily basis. I'm so glad I chose this school. My favorite experience was living in the dorms freshman year.

It depends what major and school you are in. If you are a general major, the academics are not challenging or stimulating. Some classes are extremely hard, while others are cake. It all depends on your professor and what classes you are required to take.

Mill Avenue is a total hotspot for the 21+ crowd, and it's steps away from campus, making ASU a prime location for nightlife. For 18+, there are some clubs in nearby Scottsdale to go to, and the best part is that shuttles from the club area of Scottsdale come to multiple locations around campus to pick up and drop off students.

On campus parking is ridiculously expensive, unless you want to park over a mile away from campus. Off-campus parking is virtually non-existent, and it's all metered so you can only put in enough time for ONE class. I would suggest walking/biking to campus or commuting via light-rail if you don't have an extra $400 a semester to spend on parking.

Weather is amazing! It's super hot here in the summer, but during the school year, the heat really only lasts the first few weeks and the last few weeks of the year. The rest of the time, it's sunny almost year-round and there are pleasant temperatures usually in the 70s-80s.

A Great Psychology Program Overall – The psychology program at ASU is definitely very good. Psychology is often the go-to for people who don't want to be undecided, and therefore students must complete a tedious course called Research Methods in an effort to weed out the non-serious psychology students. The advising could be better (you feel a bit detached since you aren't really assigned a specific adviser), but the program sends out emails with internship opportunities and new, interesting courses. There are plenty of internship opportunities on campus as well, as many psychology graduate students attend ASU and perform research. Workload varies on the class and the professor, but it is definitely manageable, and most of the professors are enthusiastic and make the classes very interesting.

The drug scene at Arizona State isn't a big issue, but that really depends on the type of people you decide to hang out with. I've been here about a year, and haven't noticed the drugs, but drinking is much more popular as you have mill ave.

I'm currently a Health Science Major at ASU and thoroughly satisfied with my higher education opportunities. I've received any and all med-school info that I need, I've the best instructor's of my life, and all the support I need. I do have quite a big work load, but the proper facilities to help me accomplish whatever is thrown at me.

Arizona State inspired me with their pre-professional's program. They have all the tutoring, advising and help one could ask for. The teacher's really care about their subjects and get us all the materials and help I could ask for.

ASU has a pretty good amount of varieties. However, not the healthiest. Its good to eat there once in awhile but everyday isn't good. It's always great to grab a snack! A best place that they have is called Ingrained, its all organic. Its the only place that is healthy. They have delicious salads! Plan meals can be expensive but if you are living on campus it is recommended.
College Sophomore 2012-09-15T15:41:42Z
There are so many restaurants you can go to off campus! Its great and not too far from the dorms if you live on campus. Theres a variety such as, sushi, to Mexican food, to burgers and fries. Theres also really good pizza, if you are a pizza fan! Mill Avenue though is always crowded especially on the weekends but shouldn't stop you from going there to eat and to have fun!
College Sophomore 2012-09-15T15:30:36Z
This is more pertaining to students that are older. 21 and older. So for those there is more variety and opportunities. Students that are younger I mean you can still go out, there are some 18 year old clubs but not really worth going to. Its better to even host your own party! You can safe money Maybe that could be more fun. However, there are people who go crazy and the police do need to be called so sometimes it can be dangerous.
College Sophomore 2012-09-15T15:12:13Z
The police forces can be strict and should be strict especially if you are living on campus. Most parents dont want to be sending there kids to a campus that has no restrictions when it comes down to drinking and drugs. If someone becomes violent or agressive in any way then you will be in trouble and consequences await you. Yes you can have fun in college but in a moderated way. People abuse that and thats how you will be caught. If students are just going to get drink and there main goal is partying, then academic life will decrease and they can be kicked out if there grades are not improving due to there lifestyle. Best tip is, have fun and experience college but in a way where its not to the extreme.

The police are extremely strict on minor in consumption (drugs AND alcohol). After the second MIC, your housing becomes in jeopardy. Be careful and discreet in what you do. There are also "quiet times", not strictly enforced unless you seriously disrupt the peace; you will be documented.

The availability of parking is great, the permit cost for students is horrendous. It is 800 dollars for the parking permit, but the spots are close to the dorms (Hassayampa - the brand new housing)

For how much my mother makes, which is not very much, I did not get awarded a lot. There is a great hassle trying to get ahold of the financial aid office, and the line there is atrociously long. The abundance of scholarships is poor as well. The FAFSA awarding is not as great as I thought it would be either.
College Sophomore 2012-09-14T23:08:22Z
It is pretty hot right at the beginning, but you get used to it quickly. You do sweat a lot, and since classes are for from the brand new dorms, it is a bit of a hassle. After about a month, the weather moderately cools down. No matter what though, everyone is outside or out and about so it works!:)
College Sophomore 2012-09-13T22:32:30Z
Mainly thier is lots of partying going on at the school and lots of loud music and kids hanging out late at night and a few drinking has been happening but you never really see the alcohol, what you really see is some kids trying to hide the fact that they are drunk but trying to act normal. And I don't know about the drugs but Im pretty sure that is not an issue on campus.
College Sophomore 2012-09-13T22:29:13Z
Thier is more chinese and indie kids, then blacks or any other race and I believe that it is absoutely crazy because I have never seen so many all in one place and I don't know what made them choose to come here compare to other colleges. But overall the school and the people are nice so really I don't see much people complaining about the race because everyone are basically friends with each other.

The food is here really good and the dining hall food service is way better than the high school cafeteria food. I go almost every once in awhile to eat in different dining halls. And also its always clean and always have food prepared and ready for kids when they enter.

Fork Em! Amazing spirit and great atmosphere! Nowhere better!

Light Rail – I must say that public transportation is quite excellent! Buses, shuttles, and the light rail are always running! It's really cheap, plus you do not have to pay for parking tickets! I use the light rail saves me gas and money!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
