Diverse Population – I am primarily a student at ASU West, however in the spring will be attending the Downtown as well as Tempe campus, so this review stems from ASU West experience: The student population is incredibly diverse. Most of the 'night classes' have working professionals and / or parents wanting to further education, so this is generally an older crowd. The 'day classes' see many first-year students, as well as a sprinkling of older students. In my experience, my fellow students have all been respectable, great to work with, motivated, and overall pleasant to share the college experience with.

Outstanding Educational Experience – This was my first year as an ASU student; I transfered from Glendale Community College. This has been by far the greatest experience in college thus far; my professors have all been supportive of my goals, inspirational, and dedicated to the classes they teach. I regret not attending ASU sooner; I feel enriched mentally and socially since attending this school, and I recommend ASU quite often to parents of college-age students in my workplace.

This School Is Very Fun – ASU is an amazing place to be! There is always something going on and the weather is always beautiful. The important thing is to not let all the fun distract you from the reason you are there: your studies.

A Little Overpriced – There are a wide variety of housing opportunities at ASU when you consider the choice between an apartment or a house. The problem is many are somewhat overpriced due to the fact of being located near one of the largest universities in the country.

Library Is a Great Resource! The libraries at Arizona State are your best friend! Hayden library(Main Campus) is quite large and contains computers and many group study rooms available to rent out. And of course, there are is an amazing collection of books and journals to explore on its many floors!

Easy School to Graduate from – No one gets kicked out due to academic reasons or any other reasons. ASU just cares about getting money from students My friend was harassed by her roommate at one of the dorms her Freshman year and the school wouldn't do anything. Her roommate left a pile of crap in front of her door & wrote all over her door too. The school did nothing. My friend had to contact the police (off-campus) and they made the dorm let her move out. People fail classes and can retake them and replace their whole grade, most schools take the average. It's not strict at all.

Lots of Booze – Dorms don't care if you get home drunk as long as the actual source isn't within their area. You have to be super obvious to get caught. The police won't do anything to you if you're walking around drunk, as long as they don't actually see you drinking. My friend drinks in class all the time. She puts beer in a clear water bottle & doesn't care because it looks like apple juice. Everyone gets high too. One of my suite mates is always smoking weed, even though we're not allowed to even smoke cigarettes within the vicinity. Some people even smoke on the balcony.

Party Center – If you want to go to any parties, your best bet is a frat party. What sucks is that fraternities have houses, but they're really ugly and ghetto. Sororities don't have houses and instead live together within off-campus apartment complexes (that are super expensive and a total rip-off).

THere are people of all different backgrounds at this school and there are clubs and organizations that are both encouraging of diversity and helping people to find acceptance on campus.

All facilities are are very clean. They are generally lively with people. The libraries have quiet areas as well as social areas. The Memorial union has places to eat, sleep, study, and whatever else you may want to do.

My school has a good reputation for high education
College Senior 2011-11-06T10:38:04Z
Terrible in the summer but the absolute best in the wintertime. The fall and early spring is straight up fantastic.
College Senior 2011-11-06T10:36:53Z
Banging. This is the place to be. Clubs available all over Tempe and Scottsdale but there are always parties going on off-campus as well as a huge drinking scene on campus, though ASU is technically a 'dry campus'.
College Senior 2011-11-06T10:34:39Z
Lots of computer labs, free WiFi campus-wide which is definitely great and I can't say a bad thing about. Decent amount of downtime though for the network, sometimes a bit slow.
College Senior 2011-11-06T06:54:21Z
If you are not on campus atleast30-45 minutes before your class then you will probably end up late to class. And parking is expensive.

Guys & Girls:
ASU is compiled of many different looks from sports, frat and sorority looks, casual, and not so ordinary looks. Girls are a B+ for me, and you'd have to ask a girl to rate the guys because I'm not sure how to do that.

The dorms are pretty good at ASU minus a few of the other older ones.
Recent Alumnus 2011-11-05T22:00:24Z
The computer service is great. Theres many options arounf campus if you need a computer. Theres almost always one open when you need it around campus. The internet is pretty good but slow at times.

Many of the professors are wonderful and really love what they do. On the otherhand you can tell alot of them do not care about the students whhat so ever. Registration is very difficult. Many of the classes fill up so fast leaving no classes for many students to sign up for. They end up signing up for classes that wont even count toward their major.

It is extremely overpriced and expensive to bring your car to school or to commute. As far as ticketing goes, you are allowed one warning (which is nice) but they are quite strict. You don't really need a car if you are living on campus because everything you need is either walking distance or a short bike ride. However, the convenience of a car on campus definitely has its perks. It can be hard to find a parking spot sometimes, but there are spots, just far away from where you wish to go.
College Senior 2011-11-05T15:24:20Z
Some Dorms Are Awesome... Some Are Not. It really depends on where you live on campus. Not many upper classmen choose to stay of campus after their freshman year because housing off-campus is so abundant. Many dorms have a "party" atmosphere, however, less than the surrounding apartment complexes. The dorms are convenient for calls time, but can add up cost-wise quickly. Buying a parking pass and bringing your car to school costs a ridiculous amount of money.

Health & Safety:
Somewhat Safe – I don't feel "unsafe", but I would not walk around campus or the surrounding area at night alone. The Campus Security seems to be efficient.

A Little Upsetting – I applied for financial aid of course and was told I would be getting my whole tuition covered with the addition of a few scholarships/grants I got. So I was a happy camper and only took out a small loan to cover my books. However, after applying for the loan my financial aid was adjusted so that the loan would take part in paying for my tuition. So now that meant I was paying for my books out of pocket. And to add to my frustration I found out declaring my major as a nurse meant I would be charged an extra 1000$ a semester before even getting into the nursing portion of the program. This was supposedly considered in FASFA. But apparently I can afford 2000 out of pocket a year.

Downtown Campus – The weather hasn't really affected my experience on the campus. On this particular campus the majority of the buildings are within seconds of each other and the dorms as well.

Depends on Which Campus You Attend – Off campus housing is readily available. However depending on which campus you're at you're going to end up paying alot or a reasonable amount. Inter-campus shuttles help to give more flexibility on where you are going to live in relation to the campus your major is located at. Parking passes are worth the money if you drive frequently if not utilize city transportation (discounted for ASU students)/inter-campus shuttles (which are free). Safety is great on the campuses there are call buttons located throughout the campuses and they are glad to walk you to your car at night.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
