Health & Safety:
Seen but Unseen – The police are always there if i needed their help, but I never really see them doing anything and the drug and achol problem are just getting worse.

Resources Galoure – There are so many resources and options for success here. There are a lot of different kinds of resources that can be used to move forward to being the best student and future professional you can be. The place is big and people can be friendly.

I've seen people of all different races, ethnic backgrounds and religions on campus. It is a campus for a variety of different cultural backgrounds which makes for an interesting and educational experience for everyone.

Many Different Options – I enjoy the food choices at ASU. There is a very fancy, organic (though expensive) restaurant in the student union that I enjoy, a few dining halls with pretty healthy and wholesome foods, a Jamba Juice and a couple Starbucks, and a few fastfood options. I think the variety is perfect.

Could Be Better – Like any school, some teachers are amazing while some don't seem to know what's going on and leave students confused and unsure of what is expected of them. However, a bright student will be able to figure it out and be successful with it without the help of their professors, though even the most unorganized teachers try to be of service in whatever way they can.

Some Really Amazing Teachers – My first semester I had some incredibly helpful professors, but ever since then every teacher has seemed to be really unorganized, making everything more stressful than it needs to be. Still, they all try to do what they can to help you out and the workload is always manageable.

I chose the Polytechnic campus because it has plenty of places to get away in between classes, whether it's to relax for a couple hours or work on assignments while on campus.

It's School – It wasn't my first choice, but I chose ASU because going out of state would cost too much. Honestly, I'm a senior and I just can't wait to move on because I'm tired of being in a school where I feel like no one cares about me.

Few Healthy Options – Overall, there is a lot of variety in the campus dining, from campus-based restaurants such as Devil's Diner, Pitchforks, and Engrained, to local and national chains such as Dave's Dog House, Taco Bell, and Papa Johns. In addition, there are convenience stores on campus, called Provisions on Demand. Many of these restaurants offer convenient options, such as Papa John's and P.O.D. Healthier options can be found at Engrained, E2, and P.O.D. as well. There are also a great number of coffee shops including several Java City's and Starbucks on campus. Prices on the healthier options aren't that great, however.

Engaging Education – My experiences at Arizona State University are really preparing me for my career. In my courses I am presented with relevant material and engaged in labs and projects. Outside of my courses I have found opportunities to become involved in research projects and work internships. All of these experiences, in addition to clubs, have made my college experience very valuable. When I am at an internship or a job, I feel adequately prepared to take on any challenge because of the skills and problem-solving strategies, the communication abilities, and the experience I have had at ASU.

Difficulty Deferring Scholarship – I took an internship for a semester and had to defer my merit scholarship. The initial deferrment proces went smoothly; however, it was difficult to sort out the number of semesters of funding I had left. Initially, I was given too much funding and when I tried to rectify that, I was reprimanded by the financial aid office. Then scholarship advisers switched and thought that I had already been given my final semester, even though I had returned the money that had been given to me in error. All in all, the process does eventually work, but it has a few bumps and you may have to work at it.

Fresh Healthy Options, However Lack of Variety – The various on campus dining halls offer healthy vegan/vegetarian options included in their buffet style dining, however they begin to lack in variety after a while.

Get Them While They Are Hot! Get them as a freshman otherwise your chances of getting aid decrease--this is university specific scholarships and grants--because the "New American University" is looking to balloon its enrollment in coming years and looks to entice high school seniors. The problem is once you are in the door, a large university is already receiving your money and you transition from potential university student there to current student--albeit struggling to pay for that university education nonetheless.

Triple Digit Heat With Little Relief – It is sunny almost year round with little change in weather conditions besides a barely noticeable summer monsoon season. Slather on the sunscreen and wear loose fitting clothes, because tomorrow with most likely be a scorcher. Drink lots of water and be prepared to sweat most of it out again.

Lots of Options – The area surrounding the ASU campus has lots of great places to eat. I think everyone can find something to satisfy their needs. One great local restaurant is Cheba Hut located on University and Hardy just west of the campus. Take advantage of their delivery service.

A Good Mix – In my one year at ASU I have met more people from out of state than from Arizona alone. This might be due to me not being a incoming freshman but nonetheless it is apparent in my classes and campus life. There is always an event or booth being promoted by all various groups then just the norm. I feel ASU meets all criteria when it comes to diversity.

School of the Year – ASU is a place where you are able to combine academics with your social life. With over 800 clubs just on the Tempe campus alone, there is one place where you would be able to fit in and feel at home. With all the support from staff and peers, it easy to get help with your studies, along with all the tutoring sessions so you can be on top of things. Its a great place to find balance between both having a good time and reaching your academic goals.

Good Details – I have had a good experience. It lets you narrow your research and match you with your scholarships.

It is hot, not overbearingly so. Make sure your car has a/c and you should be good to go!

Options Options Options!! There is something for everyone when it comes to dining. The most popular place would have to be Mill Avenue because the food there is phenomenal and the people on the street are even better... talk about a dinner and show! If you are looking for a little more humor, there is a great Improv place that serves wonderful food while hosting great comedy. It's always a win there.

Arizona is not a place where you would want to walk a lot so it is ideal to have somewhere to park but with 40,000+ people at the Tempe campus, it is hard to get a spot. There are parking structures in which you can pay to park at yearly or by semester but it costs up to $700 just to park your car for a few hours. A little advice: park your car at a nearby place and ride your bike or walk the rest of the way because the parking prices are not worth it. If you do decide to get a parking permit, the structures are right on campus so you have direct access to your nearby classes.

Hassay Has It All – When it comes to dorms, Hassayampa Academic Village is as good as it gets. The dorms are on campus so it is a quick walk to all of your classes, no matter how far they are. To top it off, there is a UPS store, dining hall, Subway, and market directly in the middle of the dorm buildings for student's convenience. If Subway doesn't sound good, then pizza, burrito and ice cream are directly across the street for a little variety.

At ASU, there is something for everyone! There is a club for just about everyone and their unique hobbies and if there isn't, you can make a club with just a few of your friends and get it certified. As for the heat, it is something you will have to get used to since it never cools down, even it if is 2 am. Overall, the school is never dull and the football games are always something to remember. I highly recommend attending ASU!

Parking on the ASU campus is not too hellish as long as you are willing to pay $800 to park on campus, which I refuse to do. So usually I park away from campus and walk bus as of next semester since I cannot afford gas anymore I will probably ride the train. Parking on campus is doable but with 80,000+ students, you can forget about finding a parking spot in the mornings, that is when ASU is at it's busiest.

The computers and computer labs, including the two buildings specifically housing computer labs and offering computer services, are of fantastic quality! The Internet service, when not busy, is fairly strong as well. However, with several students all using the same server during the school year, the wireless Internet connection can be a bit spotty.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
