The cafeteria area is a nice social place to chat with friends and meet new people. The food at ASU west is fresh and has a variety of foods. The library is a great place to study and as three computer rooms, which means there will always be a computer available.

I am currently in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at ASU. The over all program is great and the workload is about average. I haven't been able to go into the classrooms because of work. The online classes give me flexibility and I don't have to worry about driving an extra hour a day to get to school and back. The teachers are responsive and help with the topics they are teaching.

Arizona State University has one of the best education programs in the US but their education program doesn't have all the subjects that a teacher can possibly teach. If you want to get an art teaching degree you have to go to the art college in ASU instead of the teachers college at ASU. Other than that ASU is a college that has a lot of programs, you just have to know where to look.

I'm a vegan so it's important as a college student for me to be able to have a place to get quick, cheap, take-out that suits my diet. The campus at ASU in Tempe fits those needs with various vegetarian and vegan restaurants close by, many of which do delivery. Also, at many of the non-vegetarian restaurants, there are vegan and vegetarian options available because they know that a lot of people in the area are veg. Like Mellow Mushroom--a super famous pizza joint on Mill Avenue that has a bar, great music, TVs, serves meat, but also has vegan cheese options and tofu and tempeh toppings for your sandwiches and pizzas.

There are a lot of top notch professors here who are widely recognized in their fields. Whenever reading articles on separate websites, it is not uncommon for me to see references--or even studies--from Arizona State. This is most true for the sciences, especially physics, geology, and biology. I have met or seen several famous scientists here.

I was in the School of Life Science and I couldn't have received a better experience. I came into SOLS at a time where they were really working on reforming the structure of their classes and curriculum. The faculty and administration is superb and you won't find such friendly people who are willing to go out of their way to help you--even if they don't know you that well--if they see that you are a hard worker.

Health & Safety:
The best part of ASU's West campus was that I felt safe most of the time; however, there have been some incidents (mostly at the Tempe campus). Although having ASU Alerts were great, at least I felt safer at the West campus (smaller environment) than in the Tempe campus (college town).

The facilities most of the time were clean and well-maintained. The only disadvantages to ASU is that since Tempe is the main campus, they do not provide one near Northeast Phoenix areas.

Most of the student activities were okay at best, but was unable to attend almost all of them. The Memorial Union at times was busy, but during quiet times was good.

The computer labs (i.e. Computer Commons) at ASU were easy to access for students and the best part about them was that they supplied backup drives for students to keep up their work. The only disadvantages to the computer labs was a few times during my last one or two semesters - the computers were completely hacked and the system was shut down. My best recommendation for students was to back up their work on their own computers or laptops.

The campus had great options for transportation in town. For example, they had commute such as light rail, bus passes, and the best was taking the intercampus shuttles (charter buses), which was free to students and faculty. The only disappointment was the parking permits, which was an additional cost per semester or academic year.

ASU is located in downtown Tempe right next to mill avenue which is full of bars restaurants and shopping stores, its also close to Tempe Market place which is just a short bus ride away.

ASU is very diverse and very accepting, its quite liberal

Guys & Girls:
There are all types of people at ASU. A university this large has a home for everyone and I feel that no one should feel left out or alone and that there are always people here that you can fit in with. ASU also has one of the best looking student populations in the nation so there is always that too.

I am a Film Making Practices major and am hoping to get into the Film Making Productions major map next semester. I really enjoy my major and feel that the classes available and offered are of an excellent variety and all pertain to my major. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for me down the line in my academic career.

I am a Barrett the Honors College at ASU student and their dining facilities and food is top notch. It really is very good and the only complaint I have is that I feel the Barrett Dining Meal Plans are too expensive when compared to standard meal plans.

It could be more diverse but it is not the worth either.. its neutral, there is just no other way to put it.

Studying Biological Sciences as a major is not as easy as many might think, especially when trying to juggle that and the requirements of being an honors student. The labs are long and the material is pretty heavy, but if you keep a good work ethic and try your best, you will do just fine. The professors are all interesting and very helpful, almost as if they understand how difficult their concepts are to grasp. I personally enjoy the major a great deal. The things you get to see and do as a Biology student as both fascinating and fun, enabling you to meet interesting people and do exciting things all the while learning about the fundamentals of life. As a Biological Sciences major, you are given an entire division of the university devoted to finding research positions for you and your peers which offers you plenty of opportunities to intern at both on campus and off campus research facilities.

The area is beautiful, but the congestion of traffic can, at times, be difficult to manage. That said, the university boasts plenty of recreational facilities and shopping locations for those interested; likewise, there is a library for every major topic located around campus that is both stunning in appearance and quality of material possessed. There are some occasional instances of safety issues during the nights for those who venture a bit too far from campus, but in totality the campus is extremely safe.

I myself am not much into athletics, so my opinion is VERY limited in terms of education. However, I have noted a great degree of student pride in the athletic program which often wins against opponents of the university, so I should imagine it is very good. The pride at ASU is great, but not so much that it is annoying, meaning that there will be no painted streakers running through campus. Student life takes sports seriously, but not fanatically, making it a very good school for both those who adore sports and those who could not care less.

I came to Arizona State University because of money, I will not lie to any reader of this post, and being subjected to the common stereotypes regarding ASU, it being a party school where only the "hopeless" go to get "educated," I felt that I might have made a poor decision. However, I found that after the first two weeks the school was actually a great place for those who wanted to learn. The university offers a myriad of great resources to assist students struggling with a concept of a class, the professors are not only knowledgeable, but extremely helpful to those in need of assistance. The campus, despite some segments currently under development is beautiful and perfectly equipped to support the needs of any student, even if a "necessity" of one's college life is a green lawn and neo-classical architecture.

ASU is one of the best places for a social life! The night scene has many feautres! Great nigh clubs, bars, etc.
