There are many places on campus for students to meet at and hang out. The most common of these is the Memorial Union. There is also always some kind of event that facilitates hanging out and meeting new people.

Health & Safety:
While the campus is fairly safe, it is also very large so some caution should be used when walking alone. Especially when walking alone at night. The campus is also near some popular clubs, and some incidents of drunken behavior have been reported in the areas between these clubs and the dorms. However, as a co-ed, I have never felt truly unsafe.

The use of drugs at Arizona State University is not very common. The only time I hear of someone with drugs on them is in the newspaper and is usually someone that does not attend the school.

Make sure you research your major and all the benefits that will come in the future with you major. Also see the risk you are taking if you are not taking more of a business or Engineering major.

Overall Average – Yes, any school will have it policies set forth to scare the incoming freshman or current students at ASU. You will learn all the loop-holes after a year of attending. If you get caught that is your own fault of being careless. Just be smart about it and you will have the experience of a lifetime at ASU.

Ok housing is a huge deal for any student at ASU. Once you are out of the dorms for most of you everyone tends to live in a apartment as a sophomore on campus, which is a good decision. Before looking at the outside of the apartment and model apartment, try to find someone who actually lives in one and try to check it out. I made the mistake of living at Gateway apartments and there were so many things wrong with the apartment, but lucky enough the management was very good. The good apartments or obviously the most expensive from 1900+ which some are West 6th, Grigio at tempe town lake, Grigio metro and a few more. Make sure you do you research and look early don't wait till last minute. As for houses go, most are pretty beaten up to be honest. A house is a house yes, but they all seem like houses that were built like 20 years ago worn down and such. There are some houses that get remodeled and they look great, but the thing is you gotta find that. Just pretty much if you are looking for an apartment or house make sure you start looking very early.

They have some solid majors in certain colleges, but some of the majors are not so great. Make sure you research into what you want to do before you come in.

The computer labs all have easy access to students and staff and usually have at least some available. The lab at the Haden Library are the most popular.

The weather is fantastic. It is almost always sunny and warm, which means there are countless outdoor activities year-round. The campus is fairly large and sometimes you get pretty hot while walking on or to campus, but every single building is air conditioned and there are water fountains everywhere. Since the weather is so nice, we have an abundance of intramural sports which are great to keep you active and provide opportunities to bond with friends, coworkers, fraternity brothers, or sorority sisters. There are also activities like outdoor movies and concerts. It tends to get fairly hot at the football games, but they're so exciting that you hardly notice. I like to ride my bike and longboard and since the area is so flat it's an easy ride and very efficient.

I think that the theatre program is awesome. There are plenty of opportunities to be involved in whichever area of theatre you are most passionate about because we produce at least twelve shows per semester. There are also many theatres in close proximity to ASU which offer jobs, internships and opportunities for acting, tech and scenic design. ASU has three playhouses - The Galvin Playhouse (MainStage shows), The Lyceum Theatre and The Prism Theatre (student operated). There is a fair amount of work involved in the theatre program. Since theatre is based on performance a lot of time is devoted to memorizing lines, creating projects, and rehearsing scenes, which is much different from majors like English, Math or Marketing. The professors are all very helpful and are always willing to meet sometimes even for a cup of coffee. I have developed great friendships with several of my professors and they continue to give me assistance and advice even though I am no longer in their classes. Theatre students also have the opportunity to see school productions for free and observing other actors is a really great way to improve your craft. The program also offers concentrations in acting and technical theatre. If you choose to do a concentration, there are more classes you are required to take in order to fulfill the concentration requirements. Concentrations require another application and interview process, but as long as you are on track and willing to work hard, it's highly likely that you'll be accepted into your desired concentration.

I think this is a fantastic program. It isn't competitive, but it offers remarkable opportunities that I haven't seen anywhere else. I would definitely do it all over again. I want to open my own theatre company and ASU is very advanced in their arts entrepreneurship programs which will give me the assistance, training and experience I need in order to establish my own theatre company. ASU also has a program called PAVE that helps students make a plan for their arts related entrepreneurial venture and provides opportunities to earn grants worth upwards of $20,000. The School of Theatre and Film also provides students with a mentor and academic adviser. Your mentor is chosen by you with assistance from Jake Pinholster, the Director of the School of Film, Dance, and Theatre. Your mentor will assist you in choosing classes catered to your interests within your major as well as your needs. ASU does not focus on traditional methods of actor training, but looks at the future of theatre and encourages students to think in that way. ASU also constantly encourages collaboration which is an important skill to have in the field of theatre. With the immense number of resources available to me and the connections that I have made with professors and fellow students, I am certain that I will find a job in theatre.

I am currently pursuing an internship at Taproot Theatre Company in Seattle, Washington. My experiences and education at ASU really helped prepare me for my internship and give me confidence in my abilities. It has been incredibly fun and has helped me build awesome relationships and connections that will help me in the future. My internship is unpaid and forty hours a week, but the experience is the true reward. It will look fantastic on my resume. I am a teaching intern which means that I assist on staff teachers with weekly classes for students ages 4 to 18.

The application process for ASU's School of Theatre and Film (now the School of Film, Dance, and Theatre) is simple. The directions are very clear and there is always plenty of help available. Initially you have to submit two essays and a resume (preferably your acting or film resume). Once this has been submitted you will schedule a date for an interview. During the interview you will discuss your submissions with your interviewers and if you choose, perform a monologue. You have to choose to include either a monologue (performed at the interview), short original film, screenplay or play. It is best to choose whatever highlights your greatest skills. Your interviewers will have reviewed your information beforehand, so make sure that you review it before you go in as well. The interview is 10 to 15 minutes long and fairly relaxed. Just remember to breathe and be confident in your skills and your passion. It's okay to let your interviewers know that you're nervous as well. Make sure to complete applications early. It will save you a great deal of stress. The program is not competitive, but it offers the same opportunities that a competitive program would.

Arizona State University is very diverse. It does not matter where you go on campus where you do not meet some one from a different place. You also don't hear people making fun other other peoples race or ethnicity because there is so much around campus.

my tuition was paid for because of my high school AIMS score, but from what I have heard ASU is pretty average on giving out scholarships. I got one last year because I sent in my fafsa early enough, but unfortunately I did not make the priority deadline this year.

Health & Safety:
Good security on campus; I really appreciate the lighted pathways and security officers when I walk alone. I just off campus, however, and every night there were cops outside pulling people over. The orbit has a lot of sketchy people on it that definitely are not students.

good options on campus such as chick-fila, pizza, and the all you can eat buffet. Mill ave has some good restaurants too - mellow mushroom and my big fat greek restaurant are two of my favorites
Sorry, there are no reviews.
