Tempe Sun Devil Spot – Tempe and the Phoenix City itself has so much to offer and so much going on. It's a great cultural town with so much different forms of diversity. Super spot for all sports.

Semi Annoying – The college is so big that there are technically enough parking spots. That is if you don't mind parking literally 1 to 2 miles away from your class. The permits are rediculously overpriced, especially for the permits that allow you to park at the stadium which is at least a mile away from any classroom. You pretty much need to show up at least an hour before your class to make sure you can get a parking spot and get to class just in case you have to hike a bit because of the distance.

As with any college there is a drug scene if you look for it. I haven't had any face to face interaction with that scene but I have heard stories from friends and colleagues about the stuff that goes on during parties and in private. The alcohol visibility isn't too bad directly on campus. That is because it mainly stays on the bars on Mill.

Health & Safety:
Good System – Overall ASU has a good safety and security program. There are several methods that students can use such as call boxes that are spread throughout campus. They also utilize technology such as sending out alerts and warnings via text messages and e-mail to keep students informed. The only downfall that I see is that there needs to be more security personnel. I see them every now and then patrolling campus but you really have to try to actually find one of them if you need them.

If you are coming from the Midwest, you better find out what you are getting into. Kids out near the west coast are very different than us and it takes a lot of getting used to. Go for it, if you think you can live with all the rich, CALI SWAG kids. Best of luck.

Flag Football... Playing in the greek league, kids take it way too serious. It is a fun time, kids just need to relax and realize its flag fball.

Business Exploratory/Undecided – Way to hard to get into the Bachelor of Science Program. Needs minimum 25 of the ACT or make an admission portfolio.

The plus side of there being so many people at ASU is that you have people from every ethnic/religious/economic background imaginable. There are clubs for different groups, so it's easy to find people that you have things in common with. Overall, people at ASU are extremely accepting of other religions, ethnicity, sexualities, etc. Walking through campus, you'll see booths where different religious groups have set up booths so you can talk to them if you're interested in their religion. I love the diversity at ASU. I've met a ton of different people, including people from different countries entirely. It's really neat.

I've lived in the dorms for two years now, and for me, its a mix of what I like and don't like. It's super convenient to live on campus because you're close to your classes and campus activities. You also meet a ton of wonderful people. The best dorming options at ASU are Barrett and Hassy. Do NOT live at Manzy.It's got a really bad reputation, and for good reason. The only things that I don't like about living on campus is that I don't have a kitchen in my room, I can't have my dog (sad), and there are a lot of stupid rules you have to follow, especially when moving out and in for breaks. It's a pain. I also hate the cost. Living on campus is extremely expensive, especially if you bring a car (which I don't recommend). On campus there are a ton of things to all the time. There are a lot of places to get coffee and food, which is nice when you're on the go. The people on campus are overall very nice, and the staff is eager to help.

Tempe, AZ – Tempe, AZ is a great college city with a ton of things to do. There are a ton of community activities and things to see in Tempe, including Tempe Town Lakes, the Tempe Center of the Arts, and Mill Avenue (the hot spot to go on weekends). There's also a ton to do at ASU. However, be careful walking around at night by yourself. Try to use the buddy or group system as much as possible. And invest in pepper spray or self defense classes, as sometimes walking around by yourself can be sketchy.

Lots to Do – Anything a person could want to do is within reach at ASU. Many nice Malls and plenty of access to nightlife activities.
College Junior 2011-12-25T06:00:12Z
There is a lot of focus around sororities and fraternities. Lots of white students and no diversity. The school has a reputation for being a partying and crazy students that have sex all the time. Being gay is very common.

Situation Is Bearable – there is no need for a car on campus. parking costs a lot. there are permit lots available. but there should be more designated parking areas

Great Arizona Sunshine – Classes never get cancelled as a result of the weather. For the most part the sun is always shinning and rarely affects campus.
College Junior 2011-12-21T17:50:40Z
Meal Plan – Overall the Barrett Honors College meal plan is great. There are options of meal exchanges and various locations on campus as well as unlimited meals in the dining hall and 4 guest meals per week. However guest meal are not accepted at all dining halls on campus and the left over meals do not carry over. Meal exchanges can only be accepted once every half hour and only $100 Maroon and Gold dollars come with the meal plan.

The rumors of the Greek life is that the students only party and do not focus on school. Even though I am not part of any sorority, I have had heard and discovered that the students who are involved in a sorority or fraternity are pushed to do great in their education. It helps them succeed in their academics because they have more resources that can help them with their classes.

Active Centers for Sun Devil Students and Falculty – At Arizona State University the facilities are alwas active and updated. The student union, Memorial Union is a great place to interact. It has a food court and amazing little markets in the main level. It also has quiet places to study, big rooms to hold events and an enournmous quad to hold events outside. The Student Recreation Center is another facility that is always having events where students, faculty and other visitors can join and participate. Both of these centers and many others are always active for the Sun Devils at ASU.

Dependable Computer Labs – It is very nice to have your own computer, with the wireless access all over the campus. But if one does not have one it is not a huge deal, because the computer labs in Arizona State University are very dependable. They always have enough computers open for those who do not have a laptop and the printing process is easy as 1, 2, and 3. At Asu, the computer labs are very successful.

ASU offers a variety of methods of transportation for students and for inter-campus commuting. Very economical. I like it.
College Junior 2011-12-21T01:43:14Z
The university is very diverse with respect to ethnicity, and financial backgrounds. I feel great about it.

General Campus Aesthetics – The campus is very inviting with innovative and interesting landscaping and architecture. ASU has awesome places to sit and relax.

Health & Safety:
They are very good. The CA's are always on duty, there are campus police, there are even some fire drills so we know what to do if the situation ever comes up.

Getting Into Programs – For me it wasn't hard getting into my major, it was just difficult to get used to the new college experience as a whole. The most important things was doing well in high school and proving you can handle college all together regarding grades and commitment.

Everyone at ASU are very different in many ways. Everyone excepts everyone and racism is rarely an issue. Most people that go to ASU are wealthy and when it comes to the more controversial issues like political and religious people mostly keep it to themselvs.

Health & Safety:
Semi Safe – Over all ASU is a large school that has a lot of people of all kinds in it. Crime is rarely reported at the school except for last week with the man going around with a gun trying to rob people. However ASU has a great security system with their safety escorts making it more comfortable going around campus. They strictly enforce all rules for a safe campus as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
