The dorms are not maintained very well and tend to hinder the academic success of students. Although the convenience is the reason to live on campus, the student life is adversely effected.

The Kinesiology program is among the top 10 in the country. However, campus is nothing special. I have been to out of state community colleges that are more technologically advanced. The faculty are very knowledgeable and wiling to teach those willing to learn. The cultural diversity allows the students to experience other worlds close to home.

The weather is really nice during the Spring semester but once it gets to be about May it starts to warm up. During Fall semester it is very warm all of August and most of September.

Abundant but Expensive – Parking at ASU's Tempe campus is awful, there are many available spaces but they are tremendously over priced. Prices range from $220 to $800. It's ridiculous to pay prices like that in addition to tuition, books, dorms, and everything else that goes into paying for college.

Seems up to Date – I was impressed with the software available on the campus computers. While some of the computers take several minutes to load-up, they still work well. I suggest getting the apple/mac computer whenever there's one available because those are the fastest.

Be a Good Student – I suggest maintaining a good GPA no matter what program you are entering. I didn't have difficulty getting into Chemical Engineering because of my grade and SAT score.

The people I've spoken with have given me constantly conflicting information. Even the supervisors don't always seem to have the answers. I was given the runaround in turning in forms that I didn't actually have or need. I did get a good award package, but the process was so harrowing that I was very frustrated by it.

There's ALWAYS something happening around campus. Huge parties are hosted by companies and advertised on campus. Most people don't go clubbing, but its definitely not difficult to find something going on, especially once you make a couple friends. If it's not within walking distance, you can always hire a cab, or the Big Orange Bus which comes out to only $2 a person if you have enough people! Mill Avenue borders the west side of campus and is a huge party/bar scene. Generally fakes are spotted pretty easily, but for the 21+ crowd, its a big hangout. There's a lot of popular bars and restaurants. On New Years Eve, the entire block is shut down for a huge block party as well.

Transfer Adult Student – I am a 31 year old transfer student. I believe scholarships are available, and I have been told to look into it, but I applied late and work too many hours to look into it at this point.

Great So Far – I am just starting at ASU, but feel it's a great fit for me. Their online program is competitive, but also meets the needs of someone employed full time. Admissions staff, financial aid advisors, and academic advisors are all very responsive and keep the student's best interest in mind at all times. There is a wide range classes available, and you are given the opportunity and encouragement to explore.

All admissions counselors and professors I have spoken to encourage students to take classes that promote diversity, and encourage cultural dialog. Online there is often little room for intolerance due to race, religion, or sexual orientation since we are represented equally over the Internet.

Printing at the Library Is Time Consuming – There are plenty of computers available for student use across campus, but if you have to print anything in Hayden Library, the computers take FOREVER to log on and pull up your document. Definitely don't leave this for the last minute! (Best solution is to buy your own printer.) Otherwise wireless is available all over campus but occasionally goes in and out

There are lots of places to park on campus, but the cost is very unreasonable. I have had to find a different alternative for parking because I simply can't afford it. The cheapest parking lot on campus is extremely far away from everything.

Peer Pressure – I had many friends in high school who were good students who never did drugs or drank alcohol. As soon as they got involved in college life, this changed. What I've noticed is that it really depends on the friends students associate themselves with. I haven't had this problem because I've associated myself with friends who have similar values.

It's Very Easy to Get Access – There's tons of available computers the libraries.

Anywhere but Tempe – The Tempe campus is the campus full of students who are there to party. It's difficult to get group work done, and to put together study groups. The only other thing is the distinction between teachers who are there to do research and which ones are actually there to teach. Most that I have had are great but read the reviews on them because the ones that are only there for research really could care less.

At Downtown We Share – The Downtown campus does not have their own recreational center like Tempe does, but we do share with the YMCA which is actually right across the street. It's a nice facility with lots of stairs, but it only gets crowded in the late mornings, and it has a variety of machines to use.

They're Slow but All Around – There are computer labs everywhere you go, in almost every building. Some areas even have computers in the halls so you can use. The disadvantage to them is that they are slow hooking up to your account, which you have to do in order to use it. They can get crowded about midday but you can usually find a spot.

Football Takes Priority. When it comes down to it, football and core sports get the priority of course. Less time and efforts are put in with other teams. The facilities given to other teams are nothing compared to others. Also the time spent on another teams health is left up to the athletes where as football gets on care help and meals. The care is great, but it's not for all.

Costly, far away, packed, and difficult to find when visiting.

Watching ASU varsity sports is an experience in itself. Football games are a must! So much fun and totally worth buying the season tickets. With football season tickets, you get men's basketball too, so you make what you want of your sports experience.

Dining halls on campus are good for what they are but after a whole semester or year of continually going to them, the food seems very repetitive and boring. They always do have a decent variety though available at one time, just usually the same stuff. I'd suggest getting all M&G instead of paying for dining hall meals so you can use it for a bigger variety of places.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
