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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
College Junior 2013-07-16T18:40:23Z
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!
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T22:37:07Z
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
College Freshman 2013-07-15T22:35:32Z
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.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T22:22:07Z
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.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T21:22:23Z
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.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T21:13:24Z
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.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
