There are quite a few places to park on camups, though the campus size does not require a vehicle if a student lives on-campus or close to campus. The parking complexes have been known to be expensive but there always seem to be spaces available. Parking is free during the weekends which is very convenient. Each parking structure is centrally located to the campus and classrooms.

There are many different races, religions and backgrounds at ASU. The mixture of international students and in-state students make the campus very diverse. The community is very accepting of different views/values.

Football and basketball games are well attended and looked forward to. Many students attend sports events with enthusiasm and school pride wearing the school colors.

Health & Safety:
Health and safety are good on campus. You can sign up to get email or text alerts, letting you know about any issues happening on or near campus. ASU is very open to communicating any safety or health issues around campus.

Arizona weather is very predictable. Sun, Sun, Sun, and more Sun. A few times out of the year you get some rain showers, usually a few weeks out of the winter you might get some rain showers. However, for the most part, from May-September you are dealing with 90- 100 degree weather, then the temps can be any where from 60-80 degrees. In the winter it is rare for the temps to get lower than 50 degrees during the days.

Parking at Arizona State can be very frustrating. You have to have a parking permit first off and the closer you want to get to campus the more expensive the permit, but even then it's still impossible to find parking. If you know where the lightrail park and rides are located those garages normally have free parking so that's a plus.

The weather at Arizona State is pretty nice. During the summer and fall it's pretty hot but it's a dry heat so there is not a lot of humidity. During the winter it gets pretty cold so it's a nice change.

Parking on/off campus is a nightmare. On campus parking is very expensive, and far from most of the buildings. However, the shuttle system is very useful, once you get used to it!

The drug scene at Arizona State is not that big. Alcohol seems to be the popular "drug" of choice.

I have recieved the allotted amount of federal financial aid from ASU. However, it has been really hard getting in contact with helpful people, to see about residency issues, scholarships, and other needed information for financial aid. You really have to stay on top of things, and continue to call and ask for help, until you are able to get someone who either knows what is going on, or someone who is willing to help give you the information that you are looking for.

Big competitor in several sports in our division.
Football, Basketball, and Baseball are the big sports here, but there are swim teams, and others.
There are competitive leagues and casual leagues for those that aren't playing on the school's team.

Guys & Girls:
People from all over - lots of party types, but hey ... it is a party school.
Lots of attractive girls, and a good mix of girls / guys

Lots of labs are being upgraded, especially in the engineering areas.
Large monitors, plenty of ram and processing power, shared drives are more than sufficient.
A- Is because all systems aren't this way yet, but its in process.

The field of engineering is becoming more competitive then ever before.

There seems to be a good handle on the whole no drug tolerance on campus.

Traffic seems somewhat nonexistent so it doesn't bother me much

It is a great school with a diverse community, however, it is pricey!

Mill Ave and Old Town are the most popular places to be; whether you're an ASU college student or not. There's tons of options and a variety of people!

General education is not difficult, specialty schools are key for advanced academics

Parking at any university is going to be expensive which was the only problem I had with their parking. The cheapest lot is about a ten minute walk but well worth it if you carpool with others. Once you have figured out the layout of the school and where your classes are you learn different ways to park and places to park.

There is a great environment at ASU. There are tons and tons of students who live on campus, or close to campus, that creates an atmosphere that you can relate too. There are mostly College students that live in the town (Tempe) so your neighbors are your friends, and your not having problems with your living situation.

I lived on campus for three years and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I highly recommend freshman living on campus in order to meet new people and experience what it's like. My sophomore and junior year I lived in upperclassmen dorms which were like apartments. I absolutely loved it all three years I lived on campus!

At Arizona state university the Greek life seems to be a big part of the school. It costs a lot of money in order to stay in Greek life but most of the frats and sororities are helpful to other students and the community.

Transportation is pretty good around Tempe. We have buses that run regularly as well as the light rail that runs to campus. ASU also has a safety escort that runs until 2am and will pick you up in the middle of campus and take you back to your dorm or to your car in the parking garage.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
