Know Where to Go – In Tempe, there are going to be parties. But you've kind of got to know where they are to get to them. Sometimes you can go to Frat Row, but they can be hit or miss. Your best bet is to make friends with kids who have their own apartment or find kids who know kids who have their own off campus houses. Or get a 21+ friend and party by yourselves.
There are plenty of bars and clubs in Phoenix, but you've got to be 21 to drink at bars. And there are a couple of 18+ clubs, but you might have to fend off a few creepers. But they can be fun, and their really close to the Downtown PHX campus.

Welcome to the Oven – It's incredibly hot here in the summer, but you already knew that. I love the heat and think the warmer winters are awesome, so it's perfect for me. If you're not suited to temperatures that reach over 110, then leave before June!

There are lots of places to choose from around campus, but nothing particularly outstanding.

Local Attitude Toward Students – I have never seen anyone who gave me a hard time for being a student here, in fact, I swear that Panda Express gives me a discount for it.

Best Experience of My Life – Living on campus my freshman year was the best. The life at ASU campus has is high energy and so much fun. There is always something to do. Programs and groups to join for all people. It's really easy to get involved and to have fun. It's a huge campus that has a lot to offer and it's all within the campus.

ASU has too many options of food to eat on campus. They have choices for everyone even vegetarians. The dinning halls can get a it repetitive if you eat there every single day but there are plenty of options. As for meal plans it's better to stick with all M&G and add more later. Friends can guest swipe if you really need it.

ASU has a beautiful campus that is just glowing with life and fun. There are many things to do such as work out at the SRC which has plenty of machines and a huge pool to swim and workout in. We also have the Memorial Union which has plenty of activities for you to do as well as so many options for food. Throughout campus we have many beautiful fountains and art as well as table and benches to sit and enjoy the lovely weather and outdoors.

Memorial Union has several good places including burger king, subway, taco bell, and more. Several other places spread out through the campus.

Thai Basil – Thai food. Rice, noodles, chicken, an excellent place to eat any time of the week.

ASU's not far from home, nice campus, lots of shopping and restaurants and bars nearby

ASU is a "dry" campus meaning no alcohol. Also no drugs allowed of course. However, when reading the news in the university's newspaper, there were quite a lot of reports on drug or underage drinking and even by word of mouth you heard about crazy parties and such.

The weather here is perfect. Summer is a little hot, but it's manageable

Life Off Campus – As a returning student, I don't think I would want to live in the dorms. I prefer to live off campus and commute. There is definitely a dorm like feel to campus housing that I personally don't care for.

Fast Food Dining – I would recommend stepping off the campus to grab something to eat. There are tons of great restaurants around the campus. However they do provide fast food, like taco bell and subway for students on campus.

Health & Safety:
Really Safe – I have always felt completely safe on the ASU campus. There are emergency phones every 10 feet to get a hold of the police and they have an emergency text system to let students know if there is a problem on campus. I really like the campus and would highly recommend it to others

The freshmen dorms aren't the best, but they're better than what one would expect. Hassayampa is not too bad. It's close to two dining halls and the post office. The rooms are alright, but the lofted beds are a bit of a hassle and you have to buy your own light source.

Health & Safety:
I always feel very safe on campus. Campus Security is always out and about, and there are emergency phones all over the place. If you need to walk across campus at night, you can call for a free escort from security. The school is always good about informing students about potential dangers and whether or not there are criminals near campus. I only wish the campus was more well-lit at night.

Mill Avenue – There aren't many unique restaurants available near ASU, but there are restaurants close to the university especially on College Avenue and Mill Avenue. Mill Avenue is probably the coolest place to hang out, but it's mostly for people over 21 years of age.

The parking is expensive and very inconvenient. There's no need for a car if you live close to campus.
College Senior 2012-02-10T02:17:33Z
There's a wide selection of housing options with great value.

General Campus Aesthetics – ASU's downtown Phoenix campus is excellent. It is in the heart of Phoenix surrounded by businesses,excellent restaurants, and the arts. This gives the campus a very cultured feel.

Overall, although it has only been 2 years, I loved my ASU experience. I could not have asked for a more perfect freshman year. The ASU experience definitely lived up to my expectations--raging parties and good looking people. Besides the parties and people, despite what many think, ASU has outstanding academics as well. The business school and journalism program are excellent and also add to my pride of being a Sundevil.

Black Out or Back Out – Nightlife at ASU is definitely lively. You will always find a party going on every single day of the week. If there's nothing too fun on campus, you can walk, safety escort, taxi, or light rail it to Mill or other off campus housing (such as The Vue or Campus Suites or Block 1949). Scottsdale is also a few minutes away so if Tempe isn't too hot, you'll have a good time at either the clubs in Scottsdale or the Fashion Square Mall.

Safety and Security – I have never felt scared to walk around campus by myself

Some Are Good Some Are Horrible – The campus housing is very expensive and over priced. The facilities are not worth the money.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
