Public Transportation is really convenient and it runs late. There are buses but there is also a light rail that runs late as well.

I give the weather a C because the first couple months of Fall semesters as well as the last couple months of Spring semesters can be miserable at times due to the extreme heat...especially on such a big campus where you have to trek 1+ miles in the heat to get to class. However, the months in between are so amazing, it's almost a shame to be stuck indoors during lectures.

I do not live on campus so this is not applicable for me. However from what I understand if you are caught violating any rules on campus the penalties are pretty stiff

I had an internship recently and it was a great experience! It was in the field of community nutrition. I really got a feel for the field and got some much needed experience

The facilities at the Downtown Campus are very modern but at the Main campus in some areas they are a bit rundown

I am a Dietetics Major and I really enjoy the Nutrition program. The professors are all very knowledgeable and helpful. I really feel like they want me to succeed

I am at the Downtown Campus and enjoy the quality of the labs and classrooms, particularly for the Nutrition Department. The kitchens for the culinary classes are state of the art

I am currently a Nutrition student at Arizona State, and I hope to use my degree to go into the field of community nutrition. I chose to pursue a career in nutrition because that is where I thought I could make the most impact in my community. I always wanted to be a nurse or a doctor so I could help people but I came to find out that I am quite squeamish around blood. I might not be able to fix someone's broken bone but I can make sure they get enough calcium so it doesn't break so easily. It is my hope that if the leaders of the future have a solid foundation built on quality nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, they can live up to their full potential. I am also very passionate about food, so I believe nutrition is the perfect marriage of science and culinary arts. I believe in fresh, locally grown organic food. I want to change the world one plate at a time! It is so rewarding to do something for the greater good. I believe by putting positivity out into the universe you will in turn receive it. I’m simply paying it forward.

The lightrail runs right through campus and can take you pretty far and it runs late. There is a lot of stuff on mill just west of campus late night for people who wish to drink. One can usually find a party every thursday through Saturday. If youre underage and don't like they party scene then there comedy shows in the Memorial Union and other activities organized by MU after dark. There are also a lot of events held by your residential community that can fall under Nightlife categories. Dorm quiet hours started at 11pm weeknights and 2am weekends but even my CA and floor never really cared, we would still watch loud movies and game regardless. Only mattered during finals week when a 24 hour quiet hour was instilled.

At Arizona State you can find every type of person. From the frat guys and sorority girls to international students. ASU is a melting pot of different types of people. Because of the large student population, it allows for many different types of people to be found there. You'll find locals, but you'll also find many exchange students and out-of-staters.

Its Hot, its freaking Arizona......
but only for the first month and a half then its nice until the last month and a half of second semester. You shouldnt need more than a light jacket. It gets windy though and storms a couple times but it is usually clear and sunny

I am not apart of Greek life at Arizona state University although many people choose to and it is a thriving component of the University community.

if you want em you can find em but if you dont you dont have to worry about it. Your roommate might have em in which case you might want to switch if you wish to avoid a hairy situation. there is hookah being smoked often at night around campus but supposedly the school is going tobacco free so all of this should go away.

Arizona State University has a great transportation system. They have shuttle buses that can take you from campus to campus. Many of the campuses are also located by the light rail. All campuses are close by a freeway as well.

There are many computer labs throughout the entire school and many programs have exclusive labs. In the aerospace program as an example we have 3 "powerlabs" which have top of the line imac and mac pro's. Most of the other labs are fitted with either macbook pro's or imac's and all of the computers have bootcamps in them to run either OS that the user is comfortable in. Very capable computers and a very comprehensive network that allows a user to access their information anywhere on campus.
The school printing allows 50 prints of less then 2 sheets each for free and in some school programs there are free prints that are covered by your school's fees. Ira engineering allows free prints from their engineering community hub at Palo Verde East which was nice. I recommend though for sake of convenience to have your own printer in your room and reserve the 50 prints for when you have no ink in your own. Because of the firewall though it is harder to set your printer up wirelessly and other people in the school if tech smart can print on it so i also recomend to just use the provided usb cable with your printer.
The network only went down 2 times the last year i was there and it was down for less then 6 hours to do scheduled maintenance that was announced weeks previous and it was at a convenient time that started at 2 AM when most people are sleeping.
In my dorm there were many AP's and I never was not connected to the school wifi network. There are hundreds of AP's through the school and you always have access to more bandwidth then you need. In my room for example which was next to router in the hall we had 6 guys all gaming which for those who don't know more than one person gaming can stall out a conventional home router and use all of the allotted bandwidth. Even so we all had pings of less than 20 and suffered no performance loss ever.
Ultimately there are many labs around campus that students have access to but the network spans the entire campus that a personal computer would grant convenience because of its portability. And if one were to have a personal laptop you will never have an issue with interacting on the network.

Guys & Girls:
Students on campus are attractive if you like the west coast look. Very beachy, short shorts, long hair, and skinny ladies are the usual. The guys have a better mix but tend to be pretty cocky. I try to focus on my schoolwork rather than the looks of my classmates.
College Sophomore 2013-07-17T04:33:55Z
Hands down one of the best campuses for student life. Before even applying when I visited campus everyone mid semester was wearing ASU clothing. The spirit alone captivated me. The sporting events and rallies are high spirited and fun. The student resources and advisors are always there to help you any way they can. Definitely one of the best.
College Sophomore 2013-07-17T04:30:26Z
Tempe is located in an amazing area not far from Phoenix. Also 5 minutes from campus is Mill ave where all the bars are located. There is a zoo 15 minutes away as well as several museums. The Grand Canyon and lake havasu are both 5 hours away, a drive but well worth the trip.
College Sophomore 2013-07-17T04:17:54Z
I am completely unsure. I have always found myself at the library to study on my laptop where I find great peace of mind and solitude.
College Sophomore 2013-07-17T04:13:56Z
Health & Safety:
A lot of police presence, I have never felt unsafe or seen any foul play. Any events that happen on campus are immediately notified via text or email when they happen and are resolved. Beautiful campus and overall great and friendly staff.
College Junior 2013-07-16T20:11:45Z
There are a lot of off-campus options but not many healthy ones.
College Sophomore 2013-07-16T19:44:00Z
ASU's facilities aren't the worst you'll ever see, but they aren't the best ever. Many of the classrooms are older but the business school is going through many renovations, Hassyama (dorms) are also quite new and a popular choice among incoming Freshman.
College Sophomore 2013-07-16T19:42:02Z
To be honest, it's pretty average. It's not the greatest, but it's also not the worst you'll ever have. There's a selection of dining halls and a few on-campus other dining options. But there pretty normal, Taco Bell, KFC, etc.
College Sophomore 2013-07-16T19:39:07Z
Honestly, it really depends on the field that you go into. The business school for instance is a school that's looked highly upon (and is often where most of ASU's funding goes).

Guys & Girls:
There are all kinds of guys and girls at this university. Guys ranging from hipster to nerds to jocks and then to douches. Girls have pretty much the same. You can definitely find a lot of sorority girls. Their conversations can get really weird and funny if you take the time to listen.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
