Not Sure – I am not sure, because i am an undergraduate student, and i guess i will find out this fall. But considering the way they help with the on-campus dorms, i am guessing they put the same effort in helping you get a house off-campus.

The transportation is really cheap around ASU especially to ASU students. You have the option to use the bus, bike, walk, or even rent a car.
College Sophomore 2012-06-27T00:49:46Z
There are a variety of options, and many places to explore.

Take a Walk Down Mill – There's a bunch of different restaurants on Mill. Chipotle, Mellow Mushroom< P. F. Changs, etc.

Lots of White Students – There's mainly white people at ASU but there is also a large number of Hispanics, African Americans< and Indians. But mainly a lot of white people.

The Wifi Isn't That Great – School website goes down a lot. But the computer labs aren't usually crowded. You can usually always find a spot in the computer labs.

Great School – The weather is amazing, there is plenty of outside school activities to do, the faculty is friendly, and our school spirit is spot on. One area of concern was the lack of patience of some professors. You get used to doing a lot of things on you're own, but you don't always feel you can reach out for help. I'm thankful for the student tutoring programs.

Phone Staff Not Helpful – I had some difficulty trying to process my financial aid. I had done everything required, but one area was being challenged. I called the phone number for the financial aid office to try to see if anything could be done. They gave me the same generic answers and a lot of apologies. This surprised me because it didn't seem like an uncommon problem. I had to search the problem on my own. I finally was able to sit down with an actual person and it was a piece of cake, like there was never an issue. I'm not sure what the difference was, the person I met with was even new, so I don't think experience was the problem. I gave it a B- because the process went pretty smoothly and relatively fast, but the customer service was poor.

During the Winter, Fall, and Spring months Arizona is perfection. Other modes of transportation are desirable which means saving money on gas is a plus. However, many people know that Arizona during the summer has a reputation of being extremely hot and barely tolerable. The campus handles this by having cold drinks available for purchase, plenty of shade, and air-conditioned buildings. If you're interested in alternative energy, solar power is a rising trend at ASU because of its weather.

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.
College Senior 2012-06-24T17:09:20Z
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
Recent Alumnus 2012-06-23T23:36:31Z
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
Sorry, there are no reviews.
