Pretty Nice – Many computer labs, you can find a computer usually

University Owned = Bad – It's best to get your own place and live in not something that is university owned. You won't have to deal with CA's that way and you live with your friends

Lots of Options – Lots of fast food, subs, mexican food, etc Pretty good Decently priced
College Senior 2011-05-09T08:54:27Z
I don't have a car but I know for a fact the price of a parking pass is ridiculous, the lots aren't in convenient spots, not bad if you skate but still why skate to your car? Everything is spread out like that in AZ

Many typical "college" parties and ragers, often at peoples apartments/houses/dorm/whatever. what kinda party your getting into depends on who you are and who your hanging out with. all different styles, some more predominant than others however. If your looking to come to ASU to party I'd say its not worth it TOO MANY COPS HERE TURN AWAY

Students in the Arts Get S******** Dorms – All different styles of dorms goin on at the Tempe campus
College Senior 2011-05-09T08:46:46Z
Many, many, people at ASU do not do drugs. At the same time though you could probably find whatever you were looking for in Tempe, its a party town.

Rip Off – The dining hall food sucks, everything in the on campus convince stores is expensive as s***, the hours of the dining halls suck, I often rolled up to find the place closed. Imagine everything being a few dollars more than it needs to be

Campus Facilites – The Memorial Union is a pretty nice place to get some food, read, or just chill. The food there is pretty much only open during the campus' "peak hours" ie, most people come to campus for class during the day and then leave and go home. The best facility on campus is the SRC: they have a ton of weights and equipment, courts, machines, random rooms, and a dope pool

Guys & Girls:
it depends on who you are and who you know, what you do, how you do it. if you be yourself you'll be straight here. a lot of people dip out after the first year myself included, its all good tho i have no regrets. more gay people in az than east coast good vibes however

Geography Major – This is actually a pretty good geography program here at asu. Any of the sciences are a straight choice at asu. I was a film major first semester- it was bullshiitt, they teach it as a business and not an art

AZ Cops – AZ is crawlin with police Im from the east and not used to this many cops being around, they are a common sight both on campus and off of it. It is not uncommon on any given night to see 3-4 cops (bikes, segway, cars, motorcycles) all on the same block. The mentality these cops have is f***** up, they are wild. Surprised that the people of AZ have not reacted to this more severely. F*** cops.

The search and variety of scholarships are limited on ASU. Although, every institution has their own scholarship search to make the search much easier for specific degrees.

Arizona has the MU where it contains all types of food chain at the center of campus. It is really convenient and has all the stores you need really a good thing to have for every major university.

Great Selection on Dining Options – Arizona State University main campus has probably the best selection when it comes to food. There are many fast food joints and plenty of dine in restaurants just walking distance away. When it comes to off-campus food ASU has a great variety.

W.P Carey School Is Top Ranked – The W.P Carey School at ASU is well worth the hassle in applying. If you are lucky to be a direct admit from high school,you can immediately begin your freshman year taking classes toward your degree. Most of the professors are highly knowledgeable and willing to help outside of class. The lower level classes are huge and have about 500 students in them, but your core major classes usually have around 30 students. All of the professors have their offices directly one floor above your classes, so it makes getting extra help simple and efficient. Their are several "weed out" classes, so be prepared to study from the beginning.

Not Much to Say About Greeks – The Greek system at ASU is weak. They are not allowed to have the traditional housing, thus they live in a dorm together with the symbol of their fraternity on the outside wall. If you want to party, you do not have to join the Greek system to do it at ASU. Parties are plenty, beer comes by the kegs, and the security on campus is easy to win over if not run away from.

The computer labs at Arizona State University are plenty if you know where to look. The computing commons lab, and the lab in Coor Hall, get filled quickly during peak times of the semester. Get their early if you want a computer during midterms or finals. All of the computers run adequately and the internet connection is reliable. If you have your own computer, good luck finding an outlet to charge your computer. It's not impossible, but its takes careful searching, pre-planning, and good timing.

Student bus passes used to be free, but they're now $40 per semester. The lightrail is pretty convenient and consistent, but the buses are usually not. Whatever you do, try to avoid having to get a parking permit-waaay to expensive. Also avoid biking near the student union during lunch hours.

I come from a small town in Washington, with little diversity, so ASU in comparison is VERY diverse. There are people from all over the world, speaking many languages. There are also a decent amount of political, religious, and sexual orientation student groups.

The housing is of course very overpriced, but most students don't notice. I lived in Hassayampa when it was brand new, my freshman year. I unfortunately lived on the "worst behaved floor on campus." Fire alarms were frequent and we were kicked out for a night because someone threw a shoe at a sprinkler, which set them all off on multiple floors. The elevators also broke down often, but have since been fixed. The rooms themselves were very nice, and good sized for dorms. I lived in the Cholla on campus apartments the next year. Though it's small and looks like a prison, the only real issue is the outter walls are paper thin, so you could hear everything in the elevators if you were next to them (I was), as well as the parties over as Dos Gringos. However, the convenience of our own kitchen and being just far enough off campus to give us some separation from our classes, made it a pretty fair location.

Parking at Arizona State is absolutely ridiculous it costs so much to park about a 20 minute walk away from campus. You can barely park anywhere without getting a ticket.

Drinking Is Popular – I would say that almost everyone who attends ASU drinks and likes to party. There is some drug use such as Marijuana but I would say that pot is the most popular drug at Arizona State.

Health & Safety:
Personal Safety – I would say that Arizona State is safe with it being in the middle of a city I would feel the safest on campus at night. There are always police cars and bikers everywhere. There are also late night safety buttons that you can push in case of emergencies. I consider Arizona State a safe place where I am comfortable walking alone at night.

At the downtown campus, everything is small and close together. The staff keep the restrooms, hallways, and outside areas very neat at all times. The student centers to help with writing, math, and sciences are clean and very quiet. It is easy to get help when you need it. The staff is polite and helpful. The library is big and very resourceful, it has multiple study rooms, tons of computers and all the books/videos needed for classes. The campus overall is neat and well kept.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
