If You're in the Arts Prepare for the Subpar – What college your major falls under determines the dorms you live in, and some of the dorms are not especially nice. Specifically for the students in the college of design and the arts. They are the only dorms on campus that have communal bathrooms which at first can be treated as a rite of passage, but after a while can become a hindrance. Plus on campus housing is much more expensive than living off campus.

Greek Life is present at ASU; however, there is no pressure to join. They hardly the run the social scene and are usually only noticed because of their matching bags, shirts, etc.

Plenty of Events – There are always local events like art walks and First Fridays to enjoy.

Very Good Experience for Some – Most peoples freshman year dorm experiences are good. Problem is it cost an arm and a leg for no reason but the fact that the university wants money.
Honors students are required to commit to two years of dorm life and it costs more than the rest of the students. So it's kinda ridiculous.
Most people try to just find apartments as soon as they can.

Mostly Good – The RA's in your hall really don't care whether you break the rules or not at all.
The police on the other hand can be arrest-happy, but honestly ASU deserves it most of the time. I think they do the best they can.

Good Food for Hungry College Students – I used to love walking into the Campus Grill at west campus. The hamburgers always smelled soo good. The food is reasonably priced, but it is above average quality for most cafeterias.

Health & Safety:
I have gotten a citation from a bike officer for driving left of the median at 1230 in the morning. It was so embarassing for me, but I made a mistake. I would like to see more officers, but the ones I have seen are very professional. I am always a person who stays aware of my surroundings, but it is nice to have someone else watching my back.

An Expanding Educational Powerhouse – Overall, my experience with ASU has been a positive one. I was going to the West campus for about a year and a half and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the small campus atmosphere and how close it was to home. It has definitely grown in the last few years, and is expanding to meet the needs of even more students. The tuition when I started was very affordable and I was able to get financial aid easily. I then started working and had to cut back on hours. I eventually stopped going, but I would very much like to return to this fine institution to complete my goal of getting a bachelors degree.

I have always seen the ASU busses running up and down Thunderbird from the West campus, it seems like a valuable form of transportation for many students who have classes at different campuses. I have never needed to ride one as of yet, but they seem very nice and look very comfortable for those who do utilize them.

Arizona State has been the best choice I have made in my life. With winters that feel like summer how could you go wrong. I have met so many great people here that I know I will keep in touch with forever. It is located in a beautiful desert with cactus and palm trees all around. Not only is ASU knonw for their Nightlife we are also known for Academic Integrity. Not a bad school if you are looking for a great education that goes hand and hand with entertainment.

Arizona State has quality night life. Located close to Mill Avenue where shopping, clubs, bars and restaurants are on every corner. Arizona State has been known on the Party School list and can be fun for any student. Even if partying isnt your scene there are plenty of other fun activities like bowling, hiking, bike riding and movie theatres located close to campus. ASU has never let me down in the Nightlife category.

Labs Are Quiet – The computer labs at Arizona State are nice and quiet. Sure here and there you may hear a few loud noises but nothing to fret about. Finals times are serious at ASU so the library and computer labs become packed. Most students I have found study in groups so that it still seems somewhat fun. There are plenty of computers on campus so there is no need to worry about finding one or a spot to study with friends.

Greek Life is somewhat of a big deal at Arizona State University. I myself am not in a sorority but see girls all over campus representing for them. I have had an amazing college experience without being in a Sorority. I joined a club team so while it does not dominate the campus it is equally an important part to Arizona State.

ASU offers housing to anyone and everyone! I think its an amazing idea to live on campus your first year, its gets you involved no matter what! Living in a new environment is good for anyone, and you meet so many new and interesting people. The cost can be a burden but you are paying the convenience; living at your school allows you to get to know your school a lot better then you would living off campus.

I have used multiple computer labs at ASU on several of the campuses and they always had up-to-date technology! Many locations offer printing at a reasonable price and if sometimes separate communities offer free printing. The ASU website tends to have its ups and downs but professors are usually very understanding about it. Its always nice to have your own computer to use on your own time but if you cannot afford to purchase one, ASU has many helpful resources!

The diversity at ASU is extremely....diverse! There are so many different individuals that attend ASU. You will meet so many wonderfully unique people on a daily basis no matter what campus you visit.

Health & Safety:
Very Worrisome – ASU's camp is very nice and feels fairly safe during the day. However, all around the campus is a very bad area. There are homeless people everywhere that make me feel very uncomfortable. In the evening you have to worry about homeless people in the libraries and other buildings. I think that campus security should try harder to keep the homeless population off of the campus.

Criminology/Criminal Justice – My program is fantastic. The professors are amazing and are very supportive of the students. One of the top professors in the program is allowing me to work with him on graduate level research this year. The opportunities given to us really enhance the college experience.

Every Kind of Person Here – While ASU is known as a party school so you would expect to find only frat guys and party kids, once you look deeper you can see there are so many different kinds of people. There are those studying for their masters, others doing ground breaking research, and students who belong to just about every kind of club you could think of. Arizona state is really whatever you want to make it and there is a group for everyone here you just have to do a little searching.

College Town Tempe – Tempe is a great college town! From campus you are just minutes away from Tempe marketplace which has shops, restaurants, and the movie theatres as well as mill avenue which has more shopping and eating as well as a number of bars the college kids love to frequent. Tempe is now connected to Mesa and Phoenix through the light rail which is great for students who are attending one of the other ASU campuses but also if they just want to make their way to a diamondbacks game or any of the other great things the Phoenix area has to offer.

Dorms Close to Everything You Need. The dorms at ASU are within walking distance to just about everything you would need. You can walk to restaurants, shopping and most importantly campus. The newer dorms such as hasayampa are nicer and have more amenities. These dorms have a cafeteria, market and great hang out room with a kitchen if you need to cook or a tv and games if you just want to chill.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
