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.

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.

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.

There are a lot of off-campus options but not many healthy ones.

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.

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.

It's never easy receiving financial aid; especially at an office where they change out workers every semester or so and they don't know what they need or what they are doing. It's very rough. However, there are a variety of scholarships and work study options. My advice, apply for the university scholarships, try to get work study, and apply for scholarships that are not related to the university. Avoid loans because they will come back to bite you. Only take them if you absolutely need them (from a student with lots of loan debt to pay off).
College Junior 2013-07-16T18:34:29Z
I don't see or hear many people doing drugs. Mostly, it's just smoking or doing some hookah at home or off-campus. Alcohol and partying is much more popular
College Sophomore 2013-07-16T00:27:01Z
Being under 21 makes nightlife a little difficult for incoming students. School ran activities and events are really the only night life things that students under 18 can do. Clubs do allow for events that are 18 and over, but it isn't that often.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T22:38:48Z
Cutting edge! The off campus residences are brilliant high rises with plenty of beautiful built rooms, pools, and recreational areas. In short, these residences are excellent!

Guys & Girls:
There is n real way of describing any general air about the students of ASU, as students tend to break into their groups, but all appear to be friendly enough and are always willing to help should you need it. Likewise to good character, there are plenty of hot girls who vary in character as they do in their love of fun.
College Freshman 2013-07-15T22:37:04Z
There are many places to eat, but like everything else you will eventually get tired of it

ASU is in the process of renovating many of their freshman dorms. Staying on campus is definitely recommended although it can be a little pricey.
College Freshman 2013-07-15T22:33:12Z
The parking is extremely overpriced at the Tempe campus. It's around $500-$600 for an annual parking pass. It's also common for car tires to melt while in the lot during the summer.

Health & Safety:
The health and safety of ASU is excellent, there are multiple medical aid locations on and around campus in case of an emergency and many members of the staff are first aid certified. In terms of security, there are always plenty of security officers around campus, especially at night, and the campus police are always on call and ready to disrupt any and all illicit activities; which there are very few of.

I absolutely love the honors college at ASU. Barrett the Honors College is a gem. The housing is superior to the rest of campus, though the new Hassyampa dorms nearly rival them. There was a helpful, accessible tutoring service specifically for Barrett students, though I have used the general ASU tutoring service and was very pleased with that as well. The dining is great at Barrett and average (but good) in the other dining halls on campus. The social scene is alive and very active; I had no trouble making friends my first year at ASU.

I love my school. It's fairly clean (even after weekends full of parties). I love the vegetation and general aesthetic of my Tempe campus. The athletic center is large and sufficient--though I typically avoid the weight room due to the male-dominate atmosphere. The Memorial Union is nice, has lots of food options, but not very many study/hang out options, especially for the number of students on campus. The library is large, but I rarely use it. There are many different green areas to lounge/study in. I love all of the free events/give-aways held on campus, and even the vendors set up on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T21:07:55Z
Since I am not of age for the Tempe bar scene, there are not very many options for me. There are many parties, but other types of underage nightlife are few and far between. There are several underage clubs in Scottsdale I have been to, but transportation to there is only accessible by car.
College Junior 2013-07-15T17:38:09Z
I'd rate it is fairly average. What I really appreciate is the fact that Arizona State has a very efficient email alert response system, which sends out general alerts via email to all students. If you link your Arizona State email with your general email, it makes it much easier to receive the alerts directly to that email. I personally check my personal email far more than my student email so it simplifies things for me.

I'm from California and am very much used to a very diverse crowd. Unfortunately, the campus is dominated more by certain ethnic groups - predominately white middle class.
College Junior 2013-07-15T17:31:51Z
Greek life is stereotypical in the sense of parties, frat and sorority life ect. In my opinion it isn't as big a deal as other college campuses.
College Senior 2013-07-15T16:37:10Z
My specific major employs a very hands on approach to prepare individuals for physically active careers as well as grad schools such as physical therapy. This is different from other degrees which minimize lab exposure and fundamental physical training. The workload is similar to that of kinesiology but a little less stringent and more general to accommodate a wider variety of possible post baccalaureate opportunities. The facilities have recently been upgraded due to the increase in applicants to the program and the faculty are very knowledgeable. Internships are simple to obtain but the job opportunities are entirely dependent on the students intentions.
College Senior 2013-07-15T16:29:34Z
Getting into my major was easy since the requirements are minimal in comparison to similar degrees. This enables individuals who once were not serious to correct their ways and still have a chance at the career goal they intended upon.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
