ASU accepts ALL PEOPLE! That is why ASU is so amazing: we accept anybody, are extremely diverse, and we fully encourage you to be yourself :)

Very Fair – Punishments seem to be very fair and give a lot of slack to first time offenders of most things. The only exception is marijuana, its a possible felony for possession in the state of Arizona. Other than that however, as long as you aren't going crazy and annoying everyone else, you will be left alone.

Drugs Are Present but Avoidable – Drugs aren't too common at ASU, but its mostly marijuana and alcohol. Its easy to avoid however, There are plenty of people who don't use drugs there as well.

Arizona Heat Definitely Makes a Difference. The weather that affects Arizona State is a decent blend of weather; on average it's not too hot or too cold. However, in the summertime and the beginning of the fall semester the Arizona heat certainly is evident and it can make trips from class to class unpleasant as well as make you sweaty if you don't walk fast enough.

Our sports teams are extremely popular on and around campus and have a great reception from the student body. Our intramural sports are also a popular asset on our campus because people of all sizes, academic settings and skill levels can play whenever their schedules permit. Arizona State also has a wonderful gym facility (our Student Recreation Center) that is filled with numerous work out machines, racquetball courts, a pool and a wonderful track.

The computers at Arizona State University are usually a little bit crowded but most people who come to the computing commons move in and out within 15 - 20 minutes which allows students to get a spot quickly if there isn't one already available. The school's WiFi is excellent and always has a strong signal so that all students are able to access the network, where as the computing commons computers run a little slow and take about five to ten minutes to log students on.

Although I was able to get some scholarships last year, ASU does not make it easy to get the help you need even if you are in need of the financial aid.

Very Nice – There are always plenty of things to do around campus, there is no such thing as being bored at ASU

The off campus housing at ASU is nice but it is really expensive. There are places that are affordable but there are also the nicer places that have ridiculous prices.

People Drink Too Much. I don't party or drink and the majority of "nightlife" at Arizona State University is geared for students who like to do these things, even if they are underage. But the transportation seems good; if people are drunk, they can take cabs or the light rain. For underage nightlife, I hang out with people who don't drink or party. But overall, I'd say the nightlife scene is poor.

Never a Problem – The whether here is always the same. SUNNY. Unless its monsoon season, and if so, you grab a tarp, some soap and friends and make it a water party

sports at ASU are a large part of the school. When a sporting event is taking place, namely football, it unifies the four campuses. It brings everyone together where we are all cheering and backing up the same team.

Health & Safety:
Safe for the Most Part – I am on the smaller of the four campuses and the campus is very safe feeling. You must keep your doors and windows locked though. You WILL get broken into otherwise. The police and fire department do come in a timely manner. There is a police station of campus. I feel safe on campus though not in the north residential halls... Every where else though.... my room was broken into at North RES.

The permit costs to park in the parking garages located around the campus is absurd. It is difficult to find parking otherwise because the campus is surrounded by meters and those fill up quickly. There is not much need for a car if you live on or around campus thought because plenty of alternate transportation is provided.

The facilities on campus are well maintained and accommodate towards a variety of students. The library is always crowded with study groups and researching, the student recreational center is constantly flowing with students exercising and meeting for organized sports. The university does well in providing numerous events for students to enjoy throughout the year.

Mostly Drinking, Some Smoking – the campus has so many people you can no doubt get any drug if you're hanging out with the right people. however for the most part everyone drinks and probably a third of students smoke

Get M&G, Not a Meal Plan – There is a great variety of foods all around campus. The MU has all types of fast food, there are various coffee shops and cafes throughout campus as well. However the dining hall in my opinion was repetitive and bland, so don't waste your money buying a meal plan that gives you meals in the dining hall because you will get sick of it after the first week.

Cholla Apartaments – I lived in a renovated 2 people dorm, It was B building. The dorm was fully furnished, housing rates included water, electricity, gas, internet, basic cable. The room and living room had an individual AC/Heater. During the summer it got hot inside since the walls are made of brick, it was also difficult to put up pictures. Worst thing about the dorm is that the room didn't have a door going into the kitchen and past the kitchen was the living room so if my roommate was sleeping I had to be very quiet. Everyone in the hall was always in their room, no one kept their door open. No one usually said hi or anything. It was boring, room rate was about the same as tuition, it all varies if it is instate or not. The apartments where located a close to campus, and dinning areas.

Making Strides – Recently Phoenix has implemented the light rail system which goes straight through both the Tempe and downtown Phoenix campuses. This is as convenient as you can get and almost as cheap but safety still isn't up to par. As of now mostly you buy tickets on the honor system which places people on the trains that should be there and makes the ride sometimes unsafe. Until they fix this problem I will continue to pay for parking garages just to be sure.

Nursing Expectations – The Nursing program is extremely academically driven. Only 100 out of the schools almost 50,000 are in this program. They are also driven on having all 100 pass the national boards after graduation. Because of this they are focused on preparing us eventually for this test. Since the minimum for the Nursing boards is 77%, this has become the minimum grade you can get on any class or else you fail. Strict yes, but it definitely prepares you.

In the Hub of Phoenix – The Nursing Program is in downtown Phoenix which in the past would have been quite scary...not anymore. The city has been revamping the downtown life and has succeeded. There are not only brand new buildings surrounding you at all times, they have cleaned up the city and added numerous eateries and quiet spots.

Perfect for Me – The professors are great for the most part and the campus itself is very pretty. Prices are too high for on campus dining and textbooks. Students are generally very nice and easy going. Plenty of resources for any situation. Very close to Mill Ave and the nightlife.

I recieved a good amount of financial aid from FAFSA but none from my actual school. And the amount I recieved was not enough to fully cover tuition so I had to take out a loan to finish paying for school for the year. The in-person contact with the financial aid advisors was very helpful.

Just Like Any Other – On campus dining is just like any other university. We have a few big name fast food places and the dining halls near each dorm. The dining halls are actually very good and have plenty of options in each. Barret dining hall is exquisite; sushi, lobster, steak. Can't go wrong with Barret!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
