Guys & Girls:
Plenty of Bros – There are 72,250 students at ASU... so you are bound to find someone you like. I personally don't like the super-tan, bleach blonde, and over-done make-up... but if that's your thing, you are going to love it. There are plenty of bros as well. I would say that is the predominate style. However, there are plenty of other looks around ASU... including a healthy ginger population!

I live at Center Complex at Best C. Best C is the hub for the whole complex. We have a computer lab that has dual screens for windows and 27" Macs. This complex has buildings that have community bathrooms. They're sometimes nasty but there's a cleaning staff. Center complex is isolated from everyone. It's located on the SouthWest corner of the campus. It's basically near everywhere especially the MU which is the hub at ASU. MU does close early though and the dining hall over there. People that live here needs to go to farther dining halls and restaurants late at night. There's other dorms at the North Campus Dorms which has PV and san pablo and hassy/barret/sonora/vista in the southeast area.

It's How You Want It – Mill avenue is the only place you could go to in a walking distance but it's mostly for people 21 and above. You can catch the bus to go to AZ Mills, Tempe Market Place and/or to downtown Phoenix. Everything is in walking distance but should invest in a bike or start to learn how to ride a longboard. As for social life, there is not much to do around unless you're 21 and above.

Always Feels Like Summer – Every day in Arizona, it always feels like summer because it hardly ever rains nor snows. In July/August, we have sandstorms (called haboobs) whenever it gets really windy and either 80-100 degrees. When I first came here, I had to keep myself cool by drinking a lot of water and staying in a cool classroom.

I came to ASU Poly because it has a Special Education program at the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. The campus is fantastic, and most of the professors I have had have been close to amazing. They are available to answer questions and give you extra help with course work. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes and makes it worth going to class. Most of the classes I attend are hybrid, meaning that they are both online and in class.

Freshmen and Upperclassmen Dorms – The freshman dorms at ASU Poly are great for both ASU and Mesa-Gilbert Community College students. There are different dorms at Poly: Eagle, Mustang, Falcon, Talon, Phantom, and Palo Blanco (which is one of the upperclassmen houses) I'm currently staying at Eagle Hall and later this fall I'll be moving to Mustang Hall because all of the MGCC students will be moving in. We will have a new dorm hall opening this summer.

Health & Safety:
Totally Safe – I have never felt unsafe on ASU Poly's campus. It is a small, safe place to be with friends. Every night, my roommates and I keep our doors locked to avoid theft and pranks. Our Campus Security would always patrol around our dorms in their cars to make sure we are safe.

Just Don't Bring a Car – Don't bring a car unless it's necessary. If you are out of state bring it, the city is really spread out so getting anywhere is impossible. If you are in-state, find a way to keep your car somewhere not on campus because it'll cost you an arm and a leg. Not mention even if you pay the price for parking, you are not garenteed a spot and there are not even spots. Overall, parking sucks!

You'll see parties get busted by police and many students get MIC's but it's not a huge deal. I haven't heard of anyone getting in trouble for anything here. But it depends on which school your major falls under, some deans are more strict than others

There is very little greek life but if you want to get involved in it there are plenty of great opportunities. It is not necessary to meet friends at all.

When the weather here is nice, it is very nice. You can't beat the nice wether here anywhere. The price of this amazing weather is the unbearable heat that comes with summer. You can walk to your class in a heat that you can't imagine. The sweat of your body evaporates before you can notice it, as soon as you step in a building is when the moister spreads all over you wetting your cloths.

Common Heart Ship – There are computer commons at Arizona State University. It is there for the convince of the enrolled student. They are not updated with the best and latest software, and they usually take several minutes to connect to the schools network. The rule is "save save save", because with out a moments notice, the screen goes blank and you lose any work that is not saved. This happened to me once, but lucky it wasn't hours of work, only about a half hour. It would be really nice if the expensive software I need to compete assigned projects were installed on the schools computer or network somehow, but it is nice that there are computers that I can use.

My School Rocks – ASU has been very good for me. I have had alot of support from the DRS, Professors, and even student groups. Even though it has been a while since attending, I am excited to return and get back in the swing of things.

Parking Tight – There are quite a few parking issues at ASU. The powers that be are pretty good about catching people who park in the wrong area. I don't have that probem because I never park in a restricted area. I do have to walk farther than most, though.

Athletics at ASU are pretty big, especially for Football. The school puts alot of money into the program and it shows. It helps that the weather is so nice here during football season.

Heat but Not Distracting – I live in Arizona so you already know that it is going to be extremely hot. The hot months are May and August. But not to worry every building is willing to freeze every part of your body. So bring a light jacket for your extended amounts of time in class. Especially if your wearing shorts.

Guys & Girls:
Frat Boys – I feel like if your not in a fraternity/sorority you have a difficult time making friends. A lot of the guys are straight frat boys, but some of them are pretty down to earth too. A lot of the girls come off as snobby, but once you get to know them they are really nice.
College Junior 2012-04-09T17:48:14Z
Wide Variety – There is a wide variety of races on campus, which is nice, because it gives you a feel for all different kinds of cultures.
College Junior 2012-04-09T17:45:42Z
Labs Are Very Easy to Use – There are many computer labs around campus and are rarely ever full, because most students have their own computers. But if you are looking to use a computer lab there will definitely be computers at your disposal.

Amazing School Spirit – Arizona state is awesome at coordinating school colors and spirit at games. It always gets out what to wear so that we out shine all other schools! I love it!
College Junior 2012-04-09T01:41:45Z
You Will Get FAT!! I'm vegetarian and the options are horrible, unless I want pita jungle or a salad every time I am on campus. They have Taco Bell, Pizza, etc. It's not very health conscious, plus I am diabetic. It doesn't suit me.
College Junior 2012-04-09T01:39:50Z
Not Enough for Everyone – Arizona State University is very limited on the amount of computers they have to offer students. It's already an expensive school, especially for out of state students, so buying a computer isn't always an option at first, but I guess they don't think that through.

Foreign Students Galore! There is an incredible amount of diversity brought to the campus. It provides great opportunities to learn of others' culture.

Housing Is There – Housing is interesting. You can find housing, but you can't always count on having awesome neighbors unless you are wiling to pay a premium.

Health & Safety:
Security=Campus Jobs – It seems like the staff the security teams with federal work-study students. Does not instill confidence.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
