Don't Procrastinate – Funding your college education is a process for any school. There is a maximum subsidized loan amount allowed for students, according to their year of study. I would suggest that students talk to someone who knows the ins and outs of financial aid and do it soon. I did not and now I am stressed out and unable to sign up for classes next semester, due to my account hold.

Being a Sun Devil – The privilege of being a sun devil is a great feeling and something to be proud of. Attending an ASU football games is one of the most exciting experiences in Arizona. The atmosphere is almost overwhelmingly joyous. Following the games, or maybe just a long day of classes, students can mosey on over to Mill Avenue for a drink. Mill Ave. offers an abundance of bars sprinkled with a few clubs; always a good time to be had.

There are many exciting cites in downtown Phoenix. There are numerous towering big businesses, as well as ASU's new college of health and innovation. With the nearby shopping center is a surplus of stores, attractions, and restaurants in the area. There is bound to be something of interest for all ages.

Campus Life – At the Downtown Phoenix Campus there isn't much near by, but a convenient light rail ride takes you to the lively main campus.

Jimmy John's – Decent food
They don't "stuff" their sandwiches
Expensive for what it is

Downtown Phoenix Campus – Everything is relatively close together, but there is not much at all to do in the city.

Mixed Bag – There are a lot of Hispanic, Asian and Indian students. They are quite insular though.

Health & Safety:
Campus Security – Tempe and the surrounding area can be rough. You should watch your laptop and wallet/purse. I feel safe walking around alone as a large male athlete, but I wouldn't walk around by myself if I was a girl.

Alot of Opportunities for Internships and Research! My school provides a lot of internship fairs and even some internship classe that you can take. For example, for me I took a Kinesiology internship class and the school has an affiliation with a lot of physical therapy clinics around the area, they helped me find a place and now im working there. Also, there are many research projects that allow undergrads to work as research assistants, it is an awesome experience!

Parking is expensive so a lot of people rely on public transportation. I think it is great! There some buses that are free and take you around the Tempe area. The most convenient for me has been the lightrail it goes from Phoenix to Mesa AZ stopping at both the downtown campus of ASU and the tempe campus. It is very punctual!

Convenient Wifi Printers – There are a lot of computer labs and areas at Arizona State University, the locations are very accessible whether you are looking for a quiet place to study on your own or a more group setting. The only thing is that sometimes computers can be kind of slow starting up. There is wireless internet all over campus so that is not a problem with with people with their own laptops. The great thing is the wifi printing program that lets you program the printers from every computer lab and you just log in and print from your own laptop, it saves a lot of time!

Love the Area! Tempe, AZ which is where the main campus of Arizona State University is located is a small town but there are so many things to do. The lightrail is a very convenient form of transportation which helps us to save a lot on parking and gas and we can get to downtown phoenix and to the other campus as well. There are several mountains nearby that are great for hiking!

Party All Night! There is always something to do out here no matter the age. Asu is considered #1 party school around here and they surely do live up to that standard.
College Junior 2011-12-05T02:06:26Z
Very Wide Variety – Places around campus are excellent. I dont feel like im eating the same stuff everyday and i feel like a have many choices to choose from. Can be a little expensive but great food and service.

The financial aid process is somewhat long but it is very worth it. It would help if they had more computers at the financial aid office and receive help in there.
Recent Alumnus 2011-12-01T21:01:54Z
Personally I feel that the food around campus is decent but it could be better. They all offer fast food services which is not healthy for students. There are some options where students can consume healthier foods but it is very scarce.

House Parties – All clubs around here are for those who are 21+ with very little exceptions. Parties at The Vue are extremely overrated and usually turn out lame, don't waste your time. Most frat parties are the same way, it'd be best to send someone ahead to see what it's like before you head over. Usually house parties are the places to hit.

Guys & Girls:
The guys are short, but tan. The girls are mostly blonde. Rave culture is very big out here and all you'll hear at parties is house music.

Not the Worst – Hassayampa and Barrett are the best dorms to live in on campus and it's usually only freshmen who reside in any of the dorms. Most upperclassmen live in Vista Del Sol, or some other apartment complex off campus. The dorm rooms are very spacious compared to most other colleges I've seen, however, the plumbing in Hassy in particular is pathetic as is the shower pressure. Overall, it could be worse.

School Spirit – There is a lot of school spirit at ASU. Many parents are involved as well. The football team is also well known by all the students so we get excited when there are games.

Guys & Girls:
Social Life – Arizona State is a very social university and always has events going on. The student council put on a lot of school events for freshman to engage them as well as every other age group.

There are many races at Arizona State University. There are clubs that bring them together and there are a few sororities and fraternities for different races.

Terrible Transpo – Permits for parking are outrageous! and access is terrible. I have had my car broken into, and nothing was done. I see lots of police giving tickets and towing cars, and nobody catching thieves~!

ASU has a great support mechanism. The town of Tempe and the people of Phoenix in general. Since we are a tourist destination with year round activities, we abound with sports and entertainment venues, as well as a plethora of cultural diversity and educational opportunities. Phoenix supports ASU, and ASU supports Phoenix. It's a win win situation!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
