Air Traffic Control – it is an interesting major, given that is very specific.

Depends on the Dorms – PV and the other dorms in that area tend to be isolated from the rest of campus. Also from what I hear PVs dorms are not that great and it takes a lot to get vistors in. Hassayampa is fairly decent with vistors as long as you are with them (if they are on there own they can get stuck because they do not have access). The rooms are decent. I do not know that much about the dorms in the middle of campus. The Barrett dorms are nice and it is easy to have visitors. My floor became very close and most floors tend to be social to varying degrees.

Good If Over 21 or Able to Commute – There are kickbacks in the dorms with friends every so often, they are fun but lack the excitement of parties. The parties are off campus and the tends to be covers for guys, not so much for girls. They can be a pain to get to if you dont have a designated driver, but you can always take a cab. There are very few 18 and over clubs and not particularly close by. There are a lot of bars and clubs near by but those are only for 21 and over.

Barrett Honors College Experience – We have our own computer labs at Barrett. Speed is good, wireless access all over campus, still like having my own machine though.

Great City! So much to do, concerts, museums, amazing scenery as well as lots to do on campus.

No Personal Experience – My friends and I have never been in trouble on campus.

It's Fun and Convenient. All freshman are required to live on campus, which isn't a big deal since living in a dorm is much more convenient than being off-campus. The school is so large that you want to be as close as you can get to save travel time. There are very many freshman dorms to choose from with varying prices, which is good to see which best fits your budget. However, there are only two upperclassmen dorms, they aren't that nice, they're very pricey, and they fill up quickly. So basically, it's great if you're a freshman, and not so great if you get past the first year.

There's Always Something to Do. Although I'm not really into night clubs, bars and frat parties, all of those can be found around ASU. There are a few 18 or older clubs, but most are 21 or older. Parties happen every weekend, mostly Thursday - Saturday night. Hookah bars are also a popular place to go, especially f you're not 21 yet. Transportation at night usually involves taxis or big vans, if you have a large crowd with you.

The Classes Are Actually Interesting. I'm in the School of Social and Family Dynamics at ASU, and I absolutely love it. Every class I have taken so far that was required for my major have been interesting, fun, and have made me enjoy my major even more. Also, all of the professors in those courses were all the best teachers I have ever had. Since I love learning about families and young children, I have enjoyed the topics discussed in classes and the focus I am able to take with my major. Also, the workload is more manageable compared to many other majors, and the faculty is helpful when it comes to helping you find internships.

It Could Be Safer. Police are definitely strict when it comes to drugs and alcohol. They even do drug raids in some of the on-campus apartments, and on weekends, there is always a police car parked outside the dorm buildings. A lot of students get caught while drinking, especially those who are underage. But I think campus security could be a lot better since there have a lot of reports of trespassers coming into the dorms at night, students being assaulted (particularly young women), shootings going on , and students being stolen from.

I Absolutely Love My Major. And if I didn't, I would have a ton of other majors to choose from at ASU. My required classes for my Family & Human Development major were by far my most enjoyable courses, and I definitely would do it all over again if I hada chance. My career goals are to either get into social work or education, and work with young, low-income children . Since my major is very unheard of and specific to ASU, I do have some concern for finding a job, since employers might seek someone with a more broad field of study.
College Junior 2012-05-13T20:51:50Z
Extremely Easy. Getting into my Family & Human Development major did not take any special process or different application. The faculty was extremely helpful in guiding me through the classes I should take.

It Is What You Make It. Everything at ASU depends on how you shape your experience.

Freshman Dorm Experience – I had a lot of fun living on campus. Of course, ASU requires freshman to live in the residence halls haha. I lived in the Hassayampa Academic Village. You have a roommate and two suite mates in a room connected by a bathroom, so no community bathrooms. The rooms are smaller than people say but it's fine, it's a dorm. The dorm life is fun. I found myself at the Hayden dorms a lot more than my own. There is a sense of community in your hall. It was pretty sad moving out because I did like the freshman dorm life, but I'm looking forward to having an apartment off campus next year.

"Exploratory" Students, Save Yourself – I was undecided about my major coming to ASU, so I chose the Exploratory Arts, Humanities & Design track. The exploratory tracks at ASU are supposed to help you figure out what you want to major in, however my first semester at ASU seemed like a waste to me. Didn't really help. I am now a Tourism Development & Management major considering transferring to a university with a legitimate hospitality college as I realize that this major is kind of a joke at ASU. Of course the WPC business school has great majors here but if you're coming from out of state and majoring in something random it's not worth it...

Arizona State has a very well equipped computer commons with ample printers. Even with the rush of finals, there are still computers available. The school just upgraded to Mac desktops with allow programs to run faster and to be more reliable. Personal laptops aren't a must have.

Could Have Been More Organized – I received my financial aid at the cost of arguing with the student services multiple times. My forms and tax papers were lost in the shuffle. I kept having to verify residency after I had been attending Arizona State for three years. I would recommend speaking with multiple financial aid advisers and making regular appointments to ensure smooth processing.

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.
