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.

Cheap and Big – 5 bedrooms houses with huge backyards are very easy

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.

Great Atmosphere – Tempe campus is basically it's own little town and is surrounded by a variety of places and things to do. It's next to Phoenix which you can easily get to by the light rail to go into the city for entertainment or a Suns or Diamondback game and next to Scottsdale to enjoy more shopping, restaurants, and hiking Camelback Mountain. Something you have to do!

Cars on campus aren't really needed but there are many places to park. Also depends on where you get your permit to park. The closer to the center of campus, the more ridiculously priced they seem.

I've already completed my freshman year at ASU and am looking to change majors, however even after looking at a somewhat extensive list of Majors, I still can find anything that I'm interested in studying.

Students are given many warnings before any action/punishment is given, however you are likely to get in trouble for minor disturbances.

Parking and Transit workers are constantly on everyone's case. There is hardly anywhere to park and just when you think you find a spot, it needs a specific permit with absurd parking hours

Alcohol and Drugs – Drinking is very popular at party scenes along with Marijuana.

Park and Ride – If you live anywhere off campus and don't feel like parking your car on campus there are many "Park and Ride" sites that allow you to park in a designated lot for free and use buses or light rails to get to the school. This is very convenient and saves money on parking passes which can be very expensive.
College Junior 2012-05-07T20:42:44Z
Parking passes for on campus parking is crazy expensive so be ready for that. There are many meters around but usually never available. Overall parking isn't great.

Lost Paperwork Led to Many Problems – The whole financial aid process was not as smooth as it would have been. It was confusing to find all the steps and much easier to talk to someone in person than over the phone (so I definitely recommend in-person meetings). Somehow one of my forms was lost or not received and it caused big problems for my first semester and I was worried I wouldn't get my financial aid. After a couple phone calls to find the right person who knew what we should do, and then a couple more meetings, I got in what I needed and got my financial aid.

A Bit of a Struggle, at First. I originally applied at ASU specifically to get into their BAS Internet and Web Development program. After being accepted though, I discovered that without an AAS (associate of applied science) degree I would not be able to pursue that program. Even though I posses two AA degrees, and one of them in Computer Science Web Development, they would not allow me into that program. Very disappointing for me, so I then enrolled into their BLS (Liberal Studies) program to pursue my bachelor's degree. This Summer they opened up their GIT program without the required AAS prerequisite and I have since switched my major into the GIT program, YEAAA!!!
So, it was a bit of a struggle to get into the program that I really wanted to be in, but the wait was definitely worth it.

Guys & Girls:
Fun and Intelligent!!! I have had zero problems with any students at ASU. The guys are always helpful and do not act "better than" when I am asking for help with course topics and the gals are always friendly and also helpful, never acting "stuck up". Both genders are intelligent, friendly and happy to help other students.

Graphic Information Technology – There are an abundance of GIT classes available at ASU, more than I would've expected when I was admitted last December. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a major that is not only challenging, but fun and exciting and always keeping my attention.
College Senior 2012-05-06T21:57:59Z
I am currently going into my second semester at ASU and am very pleased with the wide range of classes that are available to me. I am also extremely pleased with the effort and attention that my professors put forth into furthering my education. Instructors are sure to make my studies challenging but they are very helpful with understanding course objectives.

As a student you have access to so much in Tempe. You can eat Greek, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, vegan, vegetarian and many more for less than 5 mile radius from campus.

Diversity and Clubs – While being a big lake of a campus you can always find your niche or people who are like you in various clubs and activities on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
