The Heat Is Killer – It is so hot here. Classes never get cancelled for the weather; it is not too bad, just a little sweat. It can be scorching hot if your walking from class to class but at least we are allowed to ride our bikes or skateboards. When summer is over then the weather gets pretty nice and everyone just hangs out outside.

I live off campus so don't have Amy experience with the drug safety on campus

It never gets too cold in Arizona (although it does get too hot during the summer depending on who you ask). For me though I hate being cold so the weather is perfect

Everything You Could Ask for. ASU is a fantastic university. I couldn't see myself anywhere else. I get to have the "big school" feel and still get the small liberal arts college experience. It's the best of both worlds.

Heart of the City – ASU is surrounded by three great cities in Arizona; Tempe, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. There is always something to do and tons of people to meet. When you need a break from the books Mill Ave., right across the street from campus, is a great place to grab a bite to eat, watch an artsy flick at the Art Theatre, or go kayaking on Tempe Town Lake. The Cartel Coffee Lab is a great place to hang out and enjoy some good coffee.

Too Hot – In Arizona if you can handle the 110+ degree heat, you'll do fine but plan to get to class soaking wet from sweating while walking from one side of campus to the other.

Life Sciences With a Forensic Chemistry Concentration – I attended Phoenix College and got a dual Associate's Degree; one in Evidence Technology and one in Administration of Justice. I had intended to finish my education at ASU, but my husband's elderly mother got sick and we had to relocate to take care of her. During the four years we were in Virginia, I attended Old Dominion University and Hampton University. We came back to Arizona last August and I FINALLY got to attend ASU. The program is awesome; my only regret is not being able to enroll in ASU as soon as I graduated in 2007... the transferring schools and states has set me back in my graduation date since the Virginia institutions did not accept most of my Phoenix College credits and I had to re take a lot of classes I had already taken.

Athletes and Athletic Supporters – Sports are a big thing at ASU... many of our athletes go on to pro teams or the Olympics. The students get very involved, having pep rallies and carnivals and all kinds of school spirit events. Lots of giveaways like mini megaphones and t shirts, and lots of music, food, and fun. Usually the public is also included if they want to come. There are gyms and workout facilities for everyone, and we have a lot of school spirit!!

Guys & Girls:
Not Your Typical Social Life – The guys and girls at ASU dress pretty casual. Everyone, including people who work at major corporations, dresses pretty casual due to the 115-120 degree heat here. I attend the ASU West campus, and everyone is really friendly and there is a sense of inclusion for everyone, including myself, a disabled 44 year old non traditional returning student. Of course there are the typical relationships and breakups, but I must admit there is little drama involved. It is overall a very friendly place to be.

We have tons of choices for meals on campus. Food from nations across the world, all you can eat buffets, snacks, BBQ, we have everything as well as actual restaurants have started taking student meal plans as currency.

Div 1 – We are a NCAA division 1 school so we have great athletics programs. Our women's softball has won many championships in the past while and our baseball and soccer teams are good as well. Our football team has a rich history but we have hit a rough patch as of late.
College Senior 2012-06-24T17:15:05Z
Lots to Do – There are lots of things to do at the on campus facilities. We have gyms, pools, student union, sports equipment, etc.

Party Scene – ASU has a large party scene, however the only drug that is consistently used is pot. Drinking is much more abundant.

Very Beautiful – Arizona weather is beautiful it is always nice out and the heat is wonderful. As long as you stay hydrated there is no worry.

Plain Jane – Nothing too special about ASU. Having multiple campuses around the city is cool and the classes are much smaller at West and Downtown so its easier to get to know people

Be Prepared to Sign Over Your First Born and Your Right Arm – Parking is a nightmare, so expensive, takes 20 mins or more to get to class from lot. Take public transit if possible
College Student 2012-06-22T05:04:54Z
Expensive, Save Your Gas – The parking permits at Arizona State University are very expensive depending how far you plan on walking to your classes. Then is a lot of pedestrian and bike traffic, so it makes driving a bit difficult. While the best alternative mode of transportation is the Metro Light Rail, that runs very close to the campus. Unfortunately biking is a poor choice of transportation, because of the high bicycle theft rate.
College Student 2012-06-22T05:01:32Z
There is a wide variety of demographics regarding dining surrounding the Arizona State University campus. As many of the restaurants are in close walking distance, or the use of a light rail as transportation. While the campus holds a decent dining hall, similar to a food court at a shopping mall.

Mill Ave More Like Las Vegas Strip – Technically Arizona State University is a dry and drug free campus, but the majority of the young student body is involved in the wild social scene. However there are many legal alternatives of recreation, such as visiting Tempe Town Lake, or hiking; since the campus is in close distance to several hiking trails. The nightlife depends on a persons personal preference of interest, because Tempe is in a major city, Phoenix.

Animal House – Greek Life is the bonding between a community of college students whom enjoy a life of debauchery and minimal studies at Arizona State Univeristy. The benefits of being involved in Greek Life organizations include Alumni connections in the career world, brotherhood in your Greek Family, and a place to live; as Greek Life have their own homes to live on campus and attend your classes. However the Greek organizations are associated with being party animals and having reckless behavior.

EASY PEASEY LEMON SQUEEZY – When I first applied at ASU I was late enrolling and registering . I was really late filing my fafsa but the financial aid advisers were really helpful and quick at getting the ball rolling. I thought the financial aid process was going to be really difficult but man did they prove me wrong.

It's All About MILL – Mill Ave at ASU is great for that party animal in you. There are even a lot of activities and places for students to party who are under 21. Mill has all the clubs all lined up perfectly ready for you to just go right in and unleash that party animal in you.
College Senior 2012-06-20T22:28:46Z
Great Fun in the Hot Hot Sun. There is so much to do here in Phoenix AZ. It's very relaxed and laid back because well who wants to fight in this intense heat. There's water parks, skyparks,great arcades and bowling alleys for that kid inside. There's tons of hiking trails, parks, a great zoo, and even an environmental revival center to satisfy that inner tree hugger.

Guys & Girls:
Beautiful Women and Hot GUYS! With ASU being one of the largest universities in the United States, there are plenty of people to choose from. A lot of the girls are tan and tall, and have awesome hair. Most of the guys are very fit and into sports and the campus life. Mostly all people on campus are friendly too, and there are always new opportunities to meet new people.
College Senior 2012-06-20T21:52:24Z
Light Rail With a Bike – Light rail is the best option to me. With so many people on campus and parking passes becoming more and more expensive. If you get a light rail pass its a lot cheaper than a parking pass. Not only this but you can take your bike on with you. Once you arrive a t campus its much faster to get around the huge campus by bike. Not only is it quick, but great exercise as well!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
