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!

Pretty Simple – When you apply to Arizona State University, you declare a temporary major. If you declare Nursing as your major, your entire ASU application is directed to the Nursing college, no extra application necessary.

Mill Avenue – Mill is the only kind of nightlife there is around ASU. There are a bunch of bar and clubs around there. Most of the people though are loud and obnoxious. I am not quite sure about underage nightlife.

Tons of Places to Eat – Tempe is a large city, pretty much any restaurant you could want exists there.

Busy Life – Tempe is a decent size city that offers an amazing night life. There are dance clubs, a variety of food places and bars with a diverse crowd. Right by the ASU Tempe campus, there is a convenient light-rail that runs from Phoenix all the way to Mesa. Another nice enjoyment is the science and arts centers.

The students here at ASU are very interested their sports teams, especially during football and men's basketball seasons.

Decently Diverse – For the most part ASU is a diverse school. ASU has African Americans, Asians, Persians, and Whites. Not to exclude any other groups but ASU does a great job in being a diverse college.

Health & Safety:
Couldn't Be Better!! I haven't personally had to go through the health department but my friends have and have had nothing to say but good things about it. As far as safety goes, ASU is a very safe school and ASU provides all of the necessary tools to allow there students to be safe.

Health Is Great! ASU's health programs really bring this grade to an A+ because they show how much this school cares about your well being. There is a building just for it that also has all medications you need during any small or large sickness.

The Area Is Amazing – Tempe is close to all major places in the Phoenix area, but with that said, there are also many places you should stay away from. The nightlife is great and so are all things nearby. You just need to be aware of your surroundings as you would any other place.

Very Good School – The classes are tough, but are very up to date. I'm in a nursing research class right now and am learning a lot!

The student center, aka MU, at ASU is where many students go to get out of the sun. It has three stories, ground level, one above and even one below. It has every food vendor you could possibly dream of for everyone's preferences! It also has a place to play pool, bowl, hang out and study. Our student center is amazing!

More Pros Than Cons! Having moved to Arizona from California I knew it would be a big change. And it really was! I love going to ASU and I love how nice and helpful all the professors are. I do not rarely ask for help but when I do I feel like other professors make you feel dumb. Here they treat you with respect and offer as much guidance as they can. The only problem I would have to admit is that coming from out of state, I am only able to be a part-time student. Out of state tuition is just so brutal! I am petitioning to be a resident in the Spring semester but I definitely need help with loans and scholarships! Other than that I enjoy the atmosphere, people, professors and their help!

It's Okay – The gym on the West campus is convenient but it is really small and cramped. I think it could also use some Zumba or other fitness classes for college credit. It would help in getting more students to come to the gym and get their money's worth, since the expense is automatically added to tuition. Also, in the dining hall, I think it could use a little more variety.

It's almost always sunny in Arizona, which means it get hot really easily. This is especially true when running to and from classes. There are several places to get a refreshing drink to cool off, but the prices aren't exactly worth the stop and I think there should be more vending machines in convenient, heavily populated areas. On the other hand, there is plenty of shade to get away from the heat for a moment on the way to class.

Mostly Sunny Days – While the temperature may be high, the buildings are always cool. There is hardly ever any inclement weather to cancel classes or make walking across campus difficult. When Arizona's famous monsoons hit, it is usually during the summer or evenings. Just plan to carry water around and the 15 minutes it takes to walk across campus won't be so bad in 100 degree heat.

There's No Shortage of Housing Here – Because ASU has been around for so long, and is the trademark of Tempe, AZ, housing options have always been in surplus. Nowadays more than ever, though, places to live for students are in anything but short supply! In the last 6 years, nearly 6 new luxury apartment complexes have been built in close proximity to the campus for upper division students to call home. There are also several complexes located across the street from campus that are designated as ASU-operated apartments for upper division students. Not to mention the quaint and beautiful neighborhoods in Tempe that have giant houses built as long ago as the 40's and 50's that are 4 or 5 bedrooms - perfect for college students looking to make cheaper rent. The smaller houses are just as nice but are inhabited by the older folks who probably went to ASU back in their day! Convenience, parking, and availability are all present here, too.

What ISN't There to Do in Tempe? The local vibe of Tempe, AZ is nothing short of hip, historic, and just, well outstanding. The university is really keeping the city up with the times with attractions like the famous Mill Avenue District, complete with historic red-brick buildings still standing from the city's founding, any kind of food you're looking for, and shopping for every type of person. Tempe Beach Park on the shore of the massive Tempe Town Lake is very often home to amazing concerts, city block parties, and international events like the annual Aloha! Festival which celebrates the Polynesian and Hawaiian cultures. As far as sports goes, if there's one thing ASU is known for, it's their love of sports. Every year, thousands of Tempe-dwellers come out for ASU's football games. Tempe police are always on the prowl to keep this bustling city safe, too. Tempe Marketplace and Arizona Mills are both really great malls to check out for further shopping, and getting to them is made easy by the Valley Metro bus and light-rail train system which operates extensively in the Phoenix-metro area. Basically, Tempe is a perfect place to explore as a college student!

Too Much Culture to Go Around in Tempe! With the immense diversity of students that go to ASU, there is an even more vast array of dining options in Tempe and the Phoenix-metro area. From Ethiopian to Brazilian to Mexican and American, Tempe's dining outlets are affordable and fun to explore! My favorite is 5 R Cha Thai Diner, which has the best Pad Thai around!

Tons to Choose from – Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale, etc the Valley is huge and the freeways/public transportation not bad, so you really have tons to choose from as far as price, style, good part of town, bad part of town, roomates or studios. There are homes for rent that you wouldn't believe how cheap you can get them. Landlords know it's a college town and want your business, so they try to outbid each other.
College Sophomore 2012-06-10T20:35:21Z
Costs Too Much – Students shouldn't have to pay for parking, that's what all the money we are already paying should be going towards. With scholarships and loans we are already paying too much.
College Junior 2012-06-07T00:58:47Z
You're from Where? ASU has a large and diverse population, especially at the main campus. One extreme example could be that I have personally seen women in burkas walking to class even in August. A lot of people representing many different countries attend ASU because it is a recognized school.

The computers usually boot up quickly and have high speed internet. Sometimes they break but usually the majority work.

Expensive and Strict – It costs 800 dollars for the structures with any near proximity to classes or dorms. I cant afford that. For the spaces that cost a reasonable 200 dollars the twenty minute walk from south campus to lot 59 in the heat made sure i would only drive if i really needed to. One time my parking permit was backward and i got a 50 dollar fine. I had to move my car every weekend for sports games (because i bought a reasonably priced spot). I got fined because a couple times I forgot to move my car back in time. Like i tried to move it at 715 and got ticketed exactly at 7 when they first could.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
