Off campus dining is extremely diverse at Arizona State; ASU contains scattered dining halls throughout the campus, little restaurants hidden in between buildings, the cornucopia of choices on Mill Avenue, the many convenient and delicious stops in the Memorial Union and the obvious large selection of the outlying city, Tempe. P.F. Changs is relatively "on- campus," the food is beyond delicious and not too expensive, when comparing other "upper" restaurants. Pita Jungle and Extreme Pita also sit on the beautiful campus, for a healthy indulgence, these cheaply priced underrated pieces of heaven are the perfect place for anyone to stop in and get a good meal! A popular sandwich shop, aside from Subway, is Jimmy Johns. Jimmy Johns is located across from the Hassayampa dorms (which is extremely convenient for most) AND is located on Mill Avenue; this "up-scale" sandwhich place obtains high- quality meat, "FAST DELIVERY & SERVICE," and almost --beats-- the prices of the ordinary Subway- a favorite of mine, and almost all the other students!

The process wasn't as difficult as some make it out to be. Well at least for me. I took the online approach. Very fast and easy. Not only does it tell you the amount of money you may receive. The website also has available sources for scholarships handy.

As seen on the new today, its to hot for any outside activity. Well at least for the next few hours. The best time to avoid the sun is at noon. Temperature is expected to drop during the night time. A cooling of ninety degrees. The best way to beat the heat, is a lot of cold drinks. Drinks such as ice, water, juice, and soda if needed ( not highly recommended. How about taking a dip in the pool to blow off some steam. And don't forget the sunscreen.

Guys & Girls:
Perry Pumas Daily News – To at Perry High School, eager students enter the campus. Eager for what? Ready and willing to learn, others looking forward to the time spent with friends. The ladies wearing all of this season latest fashion. Such as forever 21, Agaci, Love Culture, Coach and etc. The jocks A.K.A dudes sporting letterman jackets, v-necks and vans. The bell rings for lunch, all the cliques sit together. Dancers, cheerleaders, and the football players mingle together. For it is unheard of to not sit outside of your clique. Time to go back to class, what's another three classes? Well, unless you are fortunate enough to have half days. Leaving campuses earlier then the rest. With the rest of the day free to do whatever you want.

Process Needs to Improve – I received the money that was necessary to cover all my expenses but the process is a hassle. After you think your done with turning in all the paperwork that is needed it always turns out that they ask for more or that something is missing.

Upperclassmen Dorms Experience – Living in the upperclassmen dorms definitely has its advantages. Especially in the dorms im living at which is the Barretts Honors College Dorms. These dorms have its own dining and fitness center, as well as an entertainment room. Its comfortable to live in and the study and private rooms are very helpful too.

The scholarship application is a hassle. Most are need based off of taxes, but they do not realize that, that does not compare to what people have to spend money on. People who look like they may have money might not, and need help to.

Greek life is diverse, yet mostly about partying, which is fun at times but people also need to focus on school.

Took all the work out of my hands to get me my financial aid! Even offered a direct deposit option to put any extra money after expenses directly into my account!

Depends What Your Scene Is – Really it just depends who your friends are. No pressure to do drugs, however they are available.

Lively Dorms – School spirit can be felt everywhere, and on-campus residents take it to another level! With great community assistants and awesome residence hall activities, dorms are definately the place to experience the college life. The convenience of being close to everything from Scottsdale Fashion Square to Mill Ave makes it all the more while.

I come from a well off family but still received some financial aid. I thought that was great because I am coming from out of state.

Campus Police – Campus police is very strict. Underage drinking in dorms is highly frowned upon and a lot of parties get busted.

Bar/Club Scene – Mill Avenue is very close to campus and offers many bars and clubs for those students 21 and older.

Hot for the first two and last month or so of school, besides that it is perfect.

The university is very strict on drugs and alcohol, but that doesn't stop students. Marijuana and many hard drugs are prevalent among the student body, its just part of the culture. As a non drug user I find it easy to resist but for people that are easily influenced, this could pose a problem.

Ask for a Scholarship – I had good grades and test scores coming out of high school but nothing spectacular,and ended up getting a 10,000$ scholarship. They usually don't outright offer you an academic scholarship, you need to ask for them to review your portfolio. There are stipulations to keeping scholarships I think for most it is a 3.25 GPA and 12 credit hours per semester.

Lots of Choices – There are TONS of places to live in Tempe. The rent will be more expensive than your average college town but it is easy to find a nice place to live close to campus.

They just opened the Barrett Honors College cafeteria which serves really good tasting and good quality food. Other than that it is just your typical large university dining halls.
College Senior 2011-01-06T22:20:06Z
everything is close, if not in biking or walking distance there are busses and taxi's and a light rail.

Difficult for Those in the Gray Area – I am happy to say that I received my scholarship on time and in full amount, but I will admit that I was hindered. Not being a citizen on this country, the financial aid department questioned my ability to receive this scholarship without taking into consideration that I might have some other type of Visa. In the end, I got my scholarship, but only because I hired a lawyer to prove my "innocence"

Dry, Dry Desert....With Lots of Air Conditioning – Living in Arizona, it's bound to be hot. But the ASU campus I attend has the greenest foundations in the valley, supplying us with tons of large, energy-efficient fans that keep the students, as well as the classrooms, refreshed and cool-bodied. Because of this, everyone looks forward to reaching the classroom after walking in the hot sun.

Common Sense Is Commonly Used – The security around the school, though they may be of large numbers, are very well-schooled when it comes to what is acceptable and what isn't. I say this because they know when a bunch of students huddled around are just friends rough-housing or actually in a fight. But the students are also very well taught in what is considered appropriate behavior on campus and what isn't.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
