The Computing Commons at ASU Poly are not so crowded in the mornings because it opens around 7:30 and 8:00AM, but they are around the afternoons from approximately 12:30 to 6:00PM. Most people on campus do have their own computers with WiFi.

So Far It's Okay, I Guess. I mean, I'm getting things done and it seems like I'm finally reaching a point at which I'm actually learning things, so that's good, right?

Too Easy – The FMP program requires an audition/application process that's constantly stated as being "extremely difficult" to complete. My interview was too short and I didn't really have to do anything to get in. Everyone I know that applied the same time I did made it in as well.

Good Courses – You learn a lot once you begin doing hands on work in film, but the courses seem to be taught to a group of children. Instructors shouldn't act like I'm five years old.

Things Have Been Ok So Far – I am an ASU online transfer student. I am fairly happy with the process so far, however things took quite a while to get rolling, and now I feel under a great deal of pressure to complete all of my tasks for enrollment and financial aid before classes start.

I am an ASU online student and live in a completely different state.

As an ASU online student, I cannot correctly answer this question. I am a minority, though!

Process Could Be a Little More Helpful – I am returning to college after a 13 year hiatus, so Financial Aid is very overwhelming to me. The amount of searches and forms to be completed is so time consuming, and as a mother, I fear that I may miss out on scholarships because I simply do not have the time to fill out 100 scholarship forms during the Summer while my kids are home from school. I would love to have had a Financial Aid counselor send me a list of pertinent scholarships, loans and grants for me to apply.

Born and Raised in Az – I love Az weather. I love the dry hot summers and cool winters. Since we don't get rain a lot I love whenever we do.

Houses/Apartments Are Nice but Pricey – The majority of houses and apartments are very nice, but can be expensive. However I liked that the neighborhood is filled with fellow students.

I am all for people joining the Greek life, however I feel that some fraternities and sororities shun those who are not apart of the Greek life. The only time I see Greeks be openly kind to random people is during their "Rush" time.

Health & Safety:
Very Protected – I use to live in the dorms and I appreciated that I could call "Safety Escort" to give me a ride from one side of campus to the other at night. I always feel safe.

Best to live close to campus Buses are OK bikes are better

Better to ride a bike or take public transportation
Graduate University Lifestyle – Nightlife is relatively good here in the campus. There are parties around the university. Specifically during the weekends students between the age 18 to 25 can be found in the bar or club in the Mill Avenue. I really like the light music because it is calm and soothing. If the party is organized then there is a maximum possibility for the cab to be called to take you back to the campus. But if you are with your roommates or close friends then you don't have to worry for transportation as they may give you a ride back.

Lots of Housing, NOT So Much Parking – Overall the housing around campus is convenient because the size of Tempe Arizona is fairly large. With that said it is an old neighborhood with narrow streets. Most landlords in the area are allow pets which is always a plus and pretty reasonable rent prices.

Party on and FEAR the FORK – ASU is an over all party school. Most parties do not get broken up because there are a ton of students. On occasion parties will be broken up and just sent home, very little students get an MIC a.k.a. minor in consumption. ASU is the ultimate school to socialize and party your pants off. There is some occasional punishment that is why ASU received an A-.

Summers Are HOT! The weather doesn't really affect the campus experience. The summers in Arizona is just really hot making walking to class a little bit miserable!

The computers on campus are great. There are average laptops and Apple computers. They all run very fast. Printing I believe is 10 cents a page. I personally have my own computer and printer but the computers on campus are great for emergencies.

Easy to Apply – It is fairly easy to apply to any program on campus, however keeping up with it is what matters. Make sure you take your critical classes when you're supposed to and get at least the required minimum grade in them. It is easy to stay on track if you use your DARS, which you can get from your MyASU page under where is lists your major. Just keep on top of the requirements for your program.

The dorms, Taylor Place, have no declared a floor for Greek Life. People in Fraternities and Sororities can now live together on a floor. It brings new life to the social atmosphere of the dorms.

SRC Is a Great Place to Workout – The SRC has just about any piece of workout equipment you could ask for, as well as a pool. It's a fun place to workout with friends or by yourself, there are tvs on some of the equipment so you don't have to miss your favorite shows. There are also classes available there that you can take. I definitely suggest checking it out.

Studying abroad is something that ASU values highly, not that you HAVE to do it, but if you want to there are many opportunities to do so. There are many different trips available during the school year or the semester and anyone can do it. There are also scholarships available for those in need, so don't be afraid to ask if it is something you are interested in.

I go to the downtown Phoenix campus and there is nothing but meters surrounding campus. It wouldn't be so bad if the meters lasted long enough to get through a class. But they don's and we all end up with $50 tickets because we were in class and didn't get out enough to feed the meter.

Lots of Opportunities for Success – ASU has great events, advisers, and online access to information about internships, research positions, and jobs. The Job Portal through ASU's website is really helpful and has job posting for many different areas. The advisers and professors are typically always ready and willing to help people who come to them with questions. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there!
