ASU's main campus has the unique advantage of being located in Tempe (which feels more like a college town) but with easy access to the rest of the Phoenix metropolitan area. This provides a lot of opportunities offered by a big city while living in a relatively safer and nicer area.

Fairly Diverse – Arizona State prides itself on bringing in students from around the world, and I sense that to be accurate. I constantly see people of all different ethnicity around the school, often speaking their native language.

Internet Access – You get incredibly fast speeds on both public computers and through personal wireless access. The system rarely goes down, so you will usually be in pretty good shape. The wireless network covers the whole campus, so you will be able to work from almost anywhere.

The school is close to the light rail, and it cost about $80 for an all year pass. It's reasonable, but next year the pass is going to cost $150! Thats outrageous! Buses are easily accessed! There are bus shuttles that take you to different campuses of ASU

School Spirit – School is absolutely incredible. At games, they are very dedicated to thier school, and they always show their support through pep rallies. Everyone is so friendly toward each other. The athletes seem more down to earth.

Some professor at ASU are relatively good at teaching their topic, but others don't seem to be as dedicated. With teachers who have large classes, they tend to be more distant and it doesn't allow students to participates as much. At my school, you must do everything for yourself.

The only tips I have are to fill out the FAFSA early, do as many scholarships as one can, and continously go to the Finicial Aid office.

Our school has the Undie Run which gets school regconigition and also news time. It is a big part of the school year because this is a time when students candonate whatever they want whether it is clothes or food and also have a good time by celebrating the end of the school year.

It Is Okay – This is a majority white school. Although I do not feel out of place, other students tend to be a bubble and away from the other students.

Student's Academic Progress – Students must maintain a certain gpa and cannot be off track in their department major for two semesters.

Guys & Girls:
The Way Student's Dress – Students dress in their pj's or half naked, but this isn't the whole school that does this only some.

I'm transferring. The average "ASU lifestyle" wasn't really for me but this is true of most of my friends as well. Many people I met are leaving, the ones who stay are generally from around here and other places out west
College Senior 2011-05-09T11:11:15Z
Eh Not So Great – It was cool to meet a lot of the people here I met, but I felt like ASU lacks a lot you can get elsewhere. It is also very expensive for out-of-state kids. Felt like ASU was missing a lot

The Greek life here is rife with immaturity. I paid them no attention and received none in return. Do not expect to get into Greek parties if you are not in Greek life yourself. Girls get in easy

Some People Are Really Into It – It can be cool if you are really into it. I know they just tried to raise the cost of student tickets

Health & Safety:
Small crimes are common, ex. bike theft, laptop theft, but these happen everywhere. Walking around late at night is very safe, because there is almost no one waking around at night! Ever! I am from baltimore and people walk around all night- its not like that here at all. The only danger that you might find is from dealing bums/crazy people walking around on drugs.
College Senior 2011-05-09T11:03:38Z
The weather here is amazing. Very sunny most days. it can get gusty in the desert but its never a bad thing really. Summer is hot, winter is warm.

Not Much, Nowhere to Really Go, Limited Access – There is the light rail which goes through Tempe into Phoenix. It is useful for getting into Phoenix, but what there is to do for fun in Phoenix is beyond me. The only thing I ever heard of kids using it for is to go to a suns game, or kids that go to one of ASU campuses (Other than the main Tempe campus). it can be helpful if your trying to get to a party or restaurant or something. There is a bus system in the area, but they are slow and run a confusing route.

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
College Senior 2011-05-09T08:50:03Z
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.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
