There are very strict rules against drug and alcohol use on campus but it is still possible to get around it if you are very careful

Arizona State has a wide variety of courses and professors who are very knowledgeable in their field. However the availability of its professors are sometimes limited making it hard to experience one on one meetings in order to improve my work.

I would say that in Arizona, the weather does not impact the campus much at all. With that being said, the occasional days that there is rain, it is found that a lot of students do not attend! Its quite comical actually, but a lot of students use the occasional rain as an excuse to get out of class. Other than that, Arizona does not have much unpleasant weather other than the ungodly heat that hits just in time for summer break.

The drug screen at Arizona State is basically non-existent, but that is coming from someone who is not really in that scene. Drinking is definitely an activitiy of choice for a multitude of the students, and drugs are dependent on who you surround yourself with.

I have heard a lot of people complain about the dining, but I personally found it to be suitable for what I needed. So the dining halls are accessible and with a meal plan it is easy to eat what you want when you get in there. They have different choices every day but consistently have a salad bar and sandwiches and a hot meal that is changed every day and every meal time. Along with the dining halls, there is the MU which provides a commercial area for students to eat food from a variety of favorite food places such as Subway. While sometimes I wished for more variety, I think it was just because I wanted a more exotic choice because I had been eating other things previous to attending.

I lived on campus for one semester and it was actually an okay experience. The dorms, while not the nicest place to live because like all dorms, they were small and smelled funny, but I found it to be tolerable and even kind of fun because it was easy to walk around campus. However, the cost is just crazy. I knew lots of students who just lived at home with their parents and commuted instead of dealing with the prices.

Meal plans are overpriced for students living on campus especially during the first year because it is a requirement. For students living off campus or commuting it is an excellent idea to get a meal plan that is solely M&G (ASU dollars), because meals using M&G are not taxed and if you put over 400 dollars into your account, you get 20% back for what you paid for. For example, if you add $500 M&G to your account, you get an extra $100 in M&G, so you paid $500 for $600 worth of food. There are also a few dining halls where you can get unlimited food once you pay and enter which costs about $8-12. These places are usually for freshman with their meals only plan.

Health & Safety:
Although there are emergency lights to call the police practically everywhere, people still love to steal bikes around campus. Nevertheless sometimes people wander off to grab their lunches and leave their belongings in crowded or uncrowded areas; I have yet to see someone take someone else's belongings in that type of situation. There's always at least one police officer walking around campus, too.

If you want to live in the desert than coming to ASU is right for you. During the winter months the weather is really nice and cool (the lowest it gets is like 40 degrees in the am). But, when it hits summer time expect for the temperatures to be in the 100's and 110's. Which can affect how often you spend outside
College Junior 2013-06-18T22:18:22Z
There are many nice places around the campus that include many amenities. The only problems are the cost. If you want to live in cheaper housing you typically have to live further away from campus.

Nightlife is more based to those who are 21+. On mill avenue there are mant different bars and clubs that are full of good music and friendly people.

There are TONS of places to live near ASU campuses. If you are willing to take on a roommate you can live near the campus. If not, you are looking at a bit of a drive for affordability.

The Journalism program is really helpful and helps you get where you want to go.
College Junior 2013-06-16T19:08:18Z
very good food on campus, I admit some of the options arent very healthy but even then there are alot of healthy choices to choose from!
College Junior 2013-06-16T19:06:35Z
people are nice and very social we're sort of known as a party school but there's lots of other stuff to do too. it's also a very liberal university and you see alot of protestors.
College Junior 2013-06-13T21:06:28Z
There's no doubt ASU is a party school. It's easy to avoid though, for the most part. Without any frats on campus, the parties tend to stay to the surrounding neighborhoods. Really no hardcore drug use. Lot's of potheads and lot's of alcohol consumption though.

Police are nothing but power hungry. The only time you even see them is when they are busting a dorm party. CA's aren't a big help either, typically a warning is out of the question.

Who does not enjoy sunny weather almost all year round?! Although between the months of May- September it will mostly be in the upper 80s or higher, there is little to no humidity. During the months of October to March/April the weather is still warm but comfortable to enjoy. Shorts, t-shirts, and tank tops are a must have. Having nice weather allows going to sports games more fun and just makes the campus a more enjoyable site.

Around the main famous (Tempe) there are a ton of places to check out. This includes chain restaurants, pizza shops, burger shacks, and anything else you can think of! Most of the dining options are within a mile of the center of campus. Many restaurants are average priced and have specials just for students from time to time. Mill Ave. is definitely a favorite place of mine as all restaurants are good!

Business major. Several levels of academic rankings within the school itself. Thus, those who have high GPA's are at a different level than average students.

Long Walks – Campus dinning is fine as far as food, but ALL freshman are REQUIRED to have a mealplan, and the nearest dinning halls are far and few.

The finance major at ASU has a very rigid class load. More than just a business major with a concentration on finance, but requires intense math skills and science as well.
College Junior 2013-06-11T20:33:23Z
The drug scene at ASU is large. Not all over the campus, but especially large in marijuana because of the legalization of medicinal marijuana. Other drugs can be found, especially study drugs during finals weeks. Alcohol is abundantly clear at all times in school and cannot be hidden.

Guys & Girls:
ASU is such a large University, that you have an abundant amount of girls around you at all times, minus the remote campuses. The girls around here are definitely more than attractive, but given it is such a large school, there are a variety of different types. You have the partiers, artists, geeky, etc. ASU has an overall rounded male and female population, the only thing they need to improve on is girls at remote campuses.
College Junior 2013-06-11T20:25:52Z
I have only been to this university for one year after transferring from a private school. Although the private school was much more expensive, they were much more helpful finding you money to go to school. ASU dishes out a lot of scholarships, but if you do not receive one, they almost expect you to pay it all out of pocket. I wish there was an appeal process to help you get more from scholarships at ASU.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
