Not Much to Talk About – The only drug scene I see on campus is public smoking. There may be other things going on I don't know about. But, other than that drugs isn't a huge problem here.

If You Don't Look for It You Are Fine – ASU isn't bad at drugs. If you don't look for trouble you won't find it.

Light Rail Are the Best Potion – We have some many transportation in our campus, such as buses, orbit and light rail. Let's talk about the buses first, it's a really good transportation which is cheap, but we have to wait for a long time. Secondly, I want to talk about the orbit. It's free, but it takes to long to go to the places we want. Thirdly, I want to talk about the light rail. It's fast, we don't have to wait much time, it be on time and it can to a lot of places.

Great Move-In Process – The move-in process at ASU is great, though the lines can be long. You pull up your car, wait your turn, then a moving company unloads your items (labeled with your hall and room #) and by the time you finish checking in, your stuff is waiting for you in your room. This is perfect for the Arizona heat during mid-August.

Public transportation in the Tempe area is good, with free options around the Tempe campus and some that go to different areas in Tempe. The light rail goes downtown, and there are public buses that go around the valley. If you are on campus after dark and need to get somewhere else on campus, you can call the free safety escort to pick you up.

For a journalism major, the professors are at the top of their game and possibly above it. They know there stuff inside and out and I enjoy attending class and being about to soak up every bit of information that they are able to provide and then more. The resources available are awesome for broadcast majors are well. The equipment on campus is unbelievable.

It's way too hot in the summer. By the time you walk to your class in the middle of the campus you're soaking wet. Winter is amazing though, Perfect weather!

College Town – ASU is located right in the heart of Tempe. It is surrounded by restaurants, bars, and college themed locations. Mill Ave is the street known for shopping and other attractions. "A" mountain is also within distance of the school for hiking. There is always something to do around campus. There are so many kids in the area you always run into classmates.

Speech& Hearing Major – I go to college at ASU and I am enjoying the major I have chosen so far.The program I am in doesn't have an overload amount of other students in the classes and though the workload is demanding, it is rewarding. The graduate program is pretty competitive but the job outlook is very bright so it should all be worth it when I start my career.

Mill avenue offers a variety of casual dining restaurants, like chili's, p.f. changs, etc. There's also a bunch of fast food type places immediately surrounding the university.

I worked hard for good grades in high school, and was given a merit scholarship from the University without any application. The toughest part of the whole process was filling out the FAFSA. After you go through a fairly streamlined process, your financial aid is processed automatically and the scholarship/grant/loan amount is just subtracted from the total fees you owe, with no hassle. I didn't take out any loans, so I can't say much about that process, but for university scholarships and grants, the process is easy.

Expensive Permit, Far from Classes – ASU is a big school with tens of thousands of students. They offer no free parking at any time, and semester long parking permits are very expensive, at least for my budget : $200-500 depending on the distance and size of the lot you choose. The most expensive lots are fairly close to the campus proper, but that won't help if your classes are not close together, as the campus is huge. However, a cheaper alternative without the nightmare of finding a parking space is buying a year long transit pass that qualifies you for using any of the bus systems and the lightrail. If you have to commute into the city, you can park for free at any of various park-and-ride lots and take the Lightrail to the school to avoid the parking madness.

The weather is consistent, and in the winter and fall months it is very nice. However, 6-9 months out of the year, it is extremely hot. It rarely rains, so most of the time it's not humid, but the heat is oppressive and makes the long walks between classes difficult at times. Getting around quicker, like on a skateboard or bike, can help with this.
College Senior 2012-08-31T15:06:48Z
The school is diverse and this makes class more interesting becasue of individuals personal opinions.
College Senior 2012-08-31T15:02:10Z
There is on campus dining. This makes it conventional for all of the students.

Finding parking is difficult especially if you dont pay for the semester parking. The fees are extremly high.

Something for Everyone – So much diversity, you could get something different every day! Aside from the cafeteria food, there are also many restaurants to choose from.

Greater Than High School – There is definitely more diversity than in high school, which was 95% Hispanic but there are definitely many more white students.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
