Not Very Impressive – I have not felt the need to join one because I feel it is not as important as my major or my peers. I feel I have no time for this and therefore know nothing about it.

The Freshman Experience – I am in my freshman year at ASU and so far have had a pretty good experience. There has been a bit of a transitional period being on my own and getting used to the college scene, but the counselors and staff do their best to make it an easy adjustment.

A Very Diverse Campus. ASU has a very diverse campus. There are people of all races, challenges, and sexual orientation. I haven't found the diversity to be an issue. I have found that most people embrace the diversity.

Beautiful Campus With Many Opportunities – Arizona State University has a vast variety of facilities and campus activities. There is something for everyone on this campus and always a way to get involved or a place to hang out. From the rec center to the library, ASU has created a place where students feel welcome and are able to make the most of their time on this campus.

Arizona State University is a great school with a lot of school spirit. ASU really knows how to have a good time. I would choose to go here becuase the atmosphere is lively and everyone is really friendly. Once a Sun Devil, always a Sun Devil.

The greek system at ASU is unlike any other greek system nation wide. There aren't any houses/greek row. The greek system is connected through events and parties that are usually planned ahead of time. The greek system, alike any other college, is a great way to meet new people and expand your horizons.

Life in Barrett – Living on campus at Arizona State University really allows students to become more involved with the school. Living preferences all really depend on the type of student you are. If you're all about hardcore studying Barrett honors college is a great option, if you're more laid back with a little extra free time between classes offcampus appts are the best way to go. As far as cost goes, truthfully, the more you pay the better the experience, atmosphere, and food will be. Becoming accustomed to on campus living is very exciting and a great way to meet people and most of all find out your interests and dislikes.

The transportation is kind of cool. You just call and they pick you up.

People all drink and smoke weed. You know it and you see it but most don't cause too much trouble. The people in charge never find out. It's easy to hide at least alcohol in your room.

There not really part of the school life. You know there's parties but if your not a party person you don't pay attention to the greek life.

Lots to Do, but Really Spread Out – Tempe is a place of many people and surrounded by a variety of things to do. From hiking, to shopping, to a Suns game the options are endless. However, most of these activities require a car, which then limits activities to on campus, or a short bike ride away.

Small Class Sizes – Since I am in a design major, most of my classes have been around 18-20 kids, which has its advantages. The professors care more about your well-being and pay close attention to your work giving constructive feedback. For two larger sized classes I had, the teachers were always available and accessible through email or during office hours.

Guys & Girls:
Mixed Like a Blender – Arizona State is as it says, one of the most diverse college campuses in the United States. You rarely, if ever, run into the same people day to day. Collectively the guys are either the stereotype nerd and the others are gym guys-they love building their muscles. The girls meanwhile are book nerds on one hand, or the party scene type.

Shuttles Are Almost the Only Option – Unless you have a car, university shuttles between the campuses are almost the only option. Public transportation in the phoenix area is very poor due to the fact that the city layout is so spread out. A car is a very good investment if you are at any of the campuses other than the main one in Tempe.

Being that I am only in my freshman year I am still getting a feel for the University and everything it has to offer but I love ASU. I've met so many great people here and the school has so many different programs, that differ from FREE tutoring to a writing center and a rec center. For exploratory majors they really expose you to everything ASU has to offer and what different career paths to choose.

Football is the only major sport. The campus always sets up pre-game BBQ's for the the students that are pretty fun. Games are always so fun. You always meet new people considering that half of the student section is drunk and looking to have fun. The school also has a pretty nice, and pretty large, recreation center that has almost everything that you would expect to find at a gym and some.

The wifi at the school is great inside the classrooms but in some areas of the dorm it's impossible to get wifi and people will often have to go out in the hallway or in the lounge to pick up signal. I only get signal in half of my room. But there are labs everywhere. The only thing is they monitor internet usage so absolutely NO illegal downloading.

Huge School – I went to a small undergraduate art school but you could take a class in any art/design or performance field as an elective- and it counted. At ASU you do not get it counted if it is not part of your degree but you do have access to all the presentations/performances and public lectures

Good Maintenance – Good maintenance of buildings, Aware of when to upgrade and keep current.

First Come First Serve in a Large School – The computer labs at Herberger Design School at ASU are on a first come first serve basis. The very beginning of Spring 2012 semester is the first time I saw a notice posted that said log-in will be terminated if gone more than 15 minutes. Undergrads are notorious for locking the computer access and going away or even just staking out the computer next to them for when their friend arrives. For the past semesters the computer rooms become like trashed locker rooms- smelly with food and spilled food on the keyboards. The scanners at presentation time become less reliable. Our studio room has a scanner that has never been fully serviced it only works sometimes. We draw a lot and like to combine our hand drawing with digital. During finals the system can become extremely slow. Logging onto to the computer initially is usually a 10 minute wait- so it feels.

So expensive! It is really hard to find an apt. or a house that is cheap and that is in a nice area. Tempe is not the nicer area in Arizona and if you want to live somewhere cheap and nice you have to live far away from campus.

Dorm Life – I was always sick in the dorms and it was always dirty inside the buildings. The RAs never did anything about noises during quite hours when people were studying for finals. Overall, the dorm quality was bad. The food wasn't better either, I always got sick for campus food. The only good thing about living in the dorms is that you are close to your classes.

Complete's Your Daily Excerisce Requirements – You have to spend a good 15 minutes if you plan on walking from Lot59 to your classes and when it's hot, it makes it just all that much better...enough said

Greek life is pretty lame, I mean you don't really see a lot of stuff goin down so it's kind of not a huge social scene. I mean yeah Greek's got their thing but you don't really see much goin on with them, sort of exclusive.

Not Too Shabby – As a student athlete, the comps are awesome and I get free printing which is great too! But other than that I mean you can find a computer generally anywhere and the server is pretty consistent, the internet is always up and running.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
