The Druggies, Coke Heads, and Hippies – College is where one you have freedom from not only parents but from what high school used to restrict you from. At A.S.U, the use of drugs such as hookah or marijuana can be seen almost everywhere around the campus. It is definitely not a taboo or a rule that you aren't allowed to smoke right out the front office of A.S.U

Off-Camus Housing – At Arizona State University, the price for living off-campus is not only expensive but just a bad idea. One will be away from all the campus resources, excitement of experiencing what college is about, and have a higher cost in living if they lived off-campus. It is the best decision to live on campus for you will be closer to professors, school resources, and other things that will benefit one. In the long run, it will better you if you live on-campus.

A Little Bumpy – I ran into some issues concerning my financial aid. For one, I was dropped from a class due to an issue not seen at orientation and nearly lost my scholarship because the financial aid office was delayed in telling me what to do. You really must stay on top of things to make sure your own financial aid goes through easily.

ASU has a huge selection of sports to both play and watch. Although I myself am not a sports player, the atmosphere for fans is excellent. The school spirit can truly be felt during the days leading up to, and the game day itself. Sun Devil Athletics is truly one of the stapes at Arizona State University!

ASU is surrounded by intriguing, unique restaurants. Some are local restaurants only native to Arizona and some are major popular chains. My favorite restaurants are all located on Mill Avenue. They provide a variety of sit down restaurants, sports bars, and cafes. Along with Mill Avenue, Tempe Market Place is a major hub for great restaurants. The atmosphere is lively and exciting and the restaurants are all moderately affordable.

It would help to have a car to go to other campuses or other parts of Phoenix. The downtown campus is very small and together. Prices are very expensive for a parking pass.

Eating at Downtown Campus – Many places close early, none have student discounts downtown.

Lively and Party – I grew up in Tempe Arizona and I never realized how at ASU there really is a party all the time atmoshpere. But Sometimes it isn't always like that. Mill Ave. is a fun lively place just to enjoy time with friends.

Inside Scoop – The activities held at school. There are movies in the lawn, where every wednesday students are invited to watch a movie. There are seminars every thursday about health topics. As well as social events for the student living at the dorms.

There is no tolerance of alcohol at the dorms. If there is loud music at the dorms, the duty hall student makes sure to tell them to turn the music off or softer.

Flash System – Here at Arizona State University, the transport system is amazing. Starting from 6:00 AM till 1:00 AM there is a nonstop bus service. The buses circle the campus and its free for all the students to get on. This helps students get from one side of campus to another, or to parking. There is also the City Bus system that runs right along the main street of campus. So people customed to taking the City Bus, can be dropped off right at school. Also there is a lightrail system. If you come from parts that dont have the city bus, then the lightrail can also drop you off at the university.

Girls Hang Out – Everyday here at Arizona State University, without fail, you will see girls who dont cover up and are extremly revealing. Yes they are attractive, and it is hot here in the desert, however it can be quite distracting to the male students.

Fear the Fork – The Sun Devils love our varsity football team. The rivalry between Arizona State and University of Arizona is the best game of the season by far. With our new uniforms and our blacked out student section, everyone will fear the fork!

At Arizona State, it is not necessary, but definitely helpful to have a personal computer for use during class. The majority of the professors I have post all of their lectures online in an effort to cut down on paper usage. All announcements and assignments are posted online so it makes life a lot easier to have your own computer to bring class, however, there are multiple computer labs and computers in the libraries with printing options and wifi throughout campus.

It's Alright, I Don't Mind Them. There aren't many policies, that can prevent the students from having fun or doing well in school.

Health & Safety:
They're Everywhere – There are security officers everywhere. So I feel safe at all times. And the emergency phones are at every corner, so there's an easy access.

I've never had to use the college computers, but most people seem okay with them. I have my own printer which gives me the access to print what I want when I want. The wireless access is great, it remembers a computer so that you won't have to be logging in at all times.

Japanese major is ok. Lots of homework though and impossible to improve unless you study abroad. Most people I know with the same major end up getting jobs to teach English in Japan or have hopes of teaching or living in Japan.

Cheapest permit is around $200 and that permit is for lot 59 north which is pretty far from campus. Not a bad walk, takes about 15-20 minutes to get to class from lot 59 north which is the same time to wait and take the campus bus. Getting towed is crazy expensive. Having a car is necessary but there are local buses you can take if you don't mind the wait. Parking is hard to find when events are held and hard to get out of parking lots after events, like basketball games.

Lots of bars and shops on Mill Ave at the edge of the main campus. More clubs and such are located not that far from campus in Old Town Scottsdale as well. Many shops and restaurants near campus offer discounts with your ASU student ID card.

Parking permits are expensive, even lot 59, the farthest and cheapest of all parking lots. Some lots are pay to park at the cost of two dollars an hour. It's best to ride a bike or catch a bus.
