Dorms Are Sketchy – It depends what dorm you live in, but a lot of Community Assistants don't care if you drink as long as you're not too loud. If you get caught, they don't call the police, but you do have to pay to go to an alcohol class. It's basically impossible to get kicked out of the dorms. Don't go walking around campus belligerent though, or you will get breathalyzed. Also, marijuana smells and you WILL get caught if you smoke in the dorms.

Many places have student discounts, and there are so many close by restaurants and fast food places. Tempe has big chain restaurants, sushi, bars, great pizza places, Greek food and especially good Mexican restaurants around campus. My favorite restaurant is Plaza Bonita, just a couple blocks from campus. They have THE BEST fajitas! Also check out Cookiez. They give student discounts, so you can get a massive ice cream cookie sandwich for around two bucks.

Finacial Aid Is Pretty Easy – We do everything through MyASU, which makes it pretty easy when accepting scholarships and financial aid. We have an office located on every campus for students that need a little extra help. So it is pretty helpful and easy.

Campus-To Campus Shuttles – We have four different campuses, so depending on where you are coming from, we will shuttle students to and from different campuses. This makes it easier for students living on the west side that have to travel to Tempe campus. Instead of driving all the way down there, they can park at west campus and shuttle to Tempe.

Guys & Girls:
We Are Typical College Students – Students here look pretty typical. I mean, we live in the desert, so of course the shorts start coming out around March. But on average, the students are laid back, wearing jeans and a t-shirt, laptops open, usually studying.

Arizona State is amazing. Coming from Texas I taught that it would be some boring school but I was totally wrong. The people here are nice to you and make you feel like you are at home. The weather is nice except the first month during fall where it is just blazing, but all that hot weather makes great pool parties. The tradition here is great with the whole painting the A, the fork symbol, and the rival with U of A. The public transportation is amazing in the Tempe area, where I can hop on a bus and go to somewhere in the valley. I would not want to go back to Texas.

The off campus housing here in ASU is okay. The most expensive apartment called "the Vue" is only 300 a month per person when split by 4 people. There are other apartments around campus that are 100 a month per person.

Fun With a Fee – Tempe is a booming place with a lot to do, you can go to the lake or a plethora of bars/clubs, and if you don't mind traveling on the lightrail you can go the the phoenix art museum, or even the science center. But all of this fun comes with a cost... If you are like me and have no money then you will spend most of your time at home studying..

Health & Safety:
Safe? Always! The ASU campus has an excellent safety system. There is an emergency call box 200 feet from one another covering all corners of the campus. ASU has their own police department. There are staff constantly roaming the grounds for any danger. I couldn't feel safer

Computer Avaliability – There are so many computers on campus that if you turn around there will be a computer there! There are computers on all corners of the campus. There are computers for a quick print or group computers for group projects. Bringing a laptop to school is a good idea because there is Wi-Fi covering the school grounds. The log in time is the only thing that bothers me.

Plenty of Good Options, Hiking Tuition – I am dealing with raised tuition and summer abroad fees--scholarship money is vital! Yet, there are a lot of options, so hopefully they all pan out.

Light Rail – It is very convenient for campus students who want to go out on the weekends. The price is reasonable (around two dollars) and the ride is a fun experience.

Study Hard, Party Harder. Great nightclubs, restaurants and cafes. The School also provides students with exclusive bowling alleys, billiard halls and places to hang out! ASU is famous for it's nightlife and party atmosphere!

Team Spirit – Sports at ASU are lead by experienced coaches and everyone gets involved, from the faculty to the players and of course the student body always comes to support our school! They practice hard and play to win, but it's always in a fun atmosphere.

They're Great! Applying to ASU was the best choice I could have made. The professors are experts in their field and have the ability to explain and teach it without much effort. The professors are very friendly and always there to help after class. There a lot of extra help labs on campus and tutors if needed. You are provided with all the tools to success.

Parking is awful! It is INCREDIBLY expensive for a parking pass. There are rarely any meter open on the streets near campus, and the security will fine you if you're a minute past when your meter ends. It's a pain.
College Senior 2011-04-08T20:23:03Z
Not Very Strict – Not very strict on the social lives of students. Lots of drinking and smoking pot in the dorms. The CA's get lazy and don't feel like filing paper work, if they're even actually in the dorm. It really depends on the professors when it comes to the strictness of students' academic life.
College Senior 2011-04-08T20:21:00Z
There is a decent amount of diversity on campus. A lot of different races and people of economic backgrounds. Definitely a lot of people with different religions and sexual orientation.

Most of the Time Sunny – In Arizona over all is always sunny. most of the time its nice and sunny to hit the pool or tempe town lake, which become a distraction for some students. Over all walking to school is not so bad during the winter, fall and spring its nice and warm. It becomes a hassle walking to school when it hits summer, its hot and humid, you could compare the weather to a sona at a spa. Drink lots of water during those summer days!.

Availability Is Fair – Computer labs are fair, theirs enough, and it only gets crowded during noon, the chances of getting a computer during the morning or afternoon is high. The Awsome thing about campus its WIFI is accessible throughout campus, speed is good, and it is reliable. Printing stations are all over the library building, thats good, prevents huge lines waiting for the printers. The good thing about the library it has plenty of computers and its open for students 24 hrs. no need to rush and finish, you could stay as long as you want.

Center of Everywhere – Theirs so many places to go to and to shop at, right around the corner of campus, mill avenue. At mill Ave. theirs plenty of restaurants such as hooters, chili's, fatburger, there is 69 restaurants you could choose form. For the night life mill ave. is an amazing hotspot, their are a lot of lounges, clubs and bars, that fits everyone. Attractions you could go to the tempe town lake, wells fargo arena and beach park. Tempe marketplace mall is also close to campus, theres is a variety of stores, such as guess, victoria secret, and sun pac.

Fashion Square mall has over 250 stores to shop from, theres a store for every taste in style. Going to ASU and living in Tempe you will never get bored:), so much to do so little time.

Both Equally Problematic! Problem? Yes, at ASU there is always parties from monday-sunday, all parties no matter what age they are, they always manage to get alcohol. Drugs just walk out ur door and most of the time you could smell the smell of pot. Faculty cant really do anything if its not in school dorms, outside of school property theirs nothing much done about it.

Can You Spell E.X.P.E.N.S.I.V.E – Apartments that you could get through school are expensive, they are really nice but they cheapest you will find them is 400 for a shared bedroom. all other off-campus housing that are near to campus are either not affordable by most students or really old. towards the end of the second semester the availability is on demand, because students are looking for the next semester. The price range is high for one bed room apartment the cost starts at 600 for one room if lucky. If your going to look for apartments best time to look for them is starting in may.

Its Alright Could Be Better. School has a good amount of dinning halls, but u get board of them. The dinning halls are open late, a variety of fast food restaurants for you to choose from. The good thing is that close to campus theirs so many other places. if you feel like eating sushi or italian food its not that far, its just around the corner of campus.:)

Mill Ave – Mill Avenue is a convenient location to ASU's Tempe campus; it's within walking distance. It's a street filled with shopping, restaurants, clubs, and bars. It's the perfect college scene, and most places are inexpensive.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
