I came to ASU in order to pursue a degree in Air Traffic Management. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The program is amazing. The professors are all extremely knowledgeable and willing to help out whenever you need it. Workload is reasonable, you have to put in time to do well but it is interesting stuff so it never seems like busy work.

At the Polytech campus there is a new athletic center that is very well put together, and never gets overly busy. Everyone knows one another so it is a very friendly place. Always something going on with friends and there is a student activity or two every week that keep students busy.

There is always a computer to use. I have never seen all the computers being used, even during finals. Printing on campus can get expensive if you are printing a lot. Other than that though, I have never had a problem with the network or anything.

The west campus at ASU just had new dorms built and they are really nice. There is also a new cafeteria in which students can eat that serves good food. Living on campus can be a good experience, and I have heard about a lot of good experiences. Students meet a lot of people, who quickly become friends. There are people to always study with since they all live on campus. The amenities are good because there is a swimming pool, a common kitchen, and brand new common room.

Athletics at ASU are a big part of campus life. The students at ASU have a lot of school pride and we are huge supporters of our athletes and competition. There is a lot of student involvement in our school sports, and the team's performance is usually pretty good. ASU has some of the best athletic facilities in the country, which contributes to the success of athletics.

The drug scene is not too big at ASU, but that is probably because I do not hang out with people who do drugs. Drinking alcohol is a much more practiced activity, especially since Mill Street is right next to the school. Mill St is a row of bars and clubs that allow students to go out and drink right after school. I feel like the enforcement is pretty good on campus. I do not hear many stories of students getting caught with alcohol or drugs on campus, which is pretty good.

There are a lot of computer to use at Arizona State University and sometimes most of the students don't use them. I will say some of them are slow to log in, but after that there okay to use. WiFi is not a problem, but there were only two times it wasn't working.

Parking on campus isn't much of a hassle, just be sure you can afford it. It also help if you get a space early since it becomes crowded in the afternoon.

ASU Football has got talk of going to the Rose Bowl this year. Baseball and Softball are at the top like usual. IM sports are also huge and very competitive

ASU Poly Campus has an high altitude chamber that can simulate high altitudes. The Pilots use it to figure out their symptoms of hypoxia

Options for off-campus dining are not as great at the Poly Campus. Better have transportation to the off-campus dining. If you do you will enjoy some great food

All Depends what Campus you are on. If you are on the Tempe Campus then you have it all. Some of the other campuses don't have it top notch like the Tempe Campus

It is as normal as any off-campus housing. There are many amenities at most places, including utilities, pools, gyms, and lounges. The prices are kind of high, and they do not always provide transportation shuttles to campus. Most of them are very safe and secure.
College Senior 2013-05-19T20:59:23Z
The facilities at ASU are top notch. The athletic center is beautiful with many modern amenities, as well as a pool and racquetball court. Many of the Arizona native plants and desert landscape is incorporated into the campus spaces.

The social scene at ASU is somewhat dismal. Many students live in the area so many are still hanging out with the kids they went to highschool.

Arizona State University does a great job at incorporating diversity and strives to showcase the large Hispanic and Native American influences that AZ has to offer/
College Junior 2013-05-19T04:24:39Z
Variety of sports to choose from and the best university to represent. There are allot of good athletes that graduate from Arizona State University and have a successful future.

Guys & Girls:
There is no typical look for an ASU girl or guy. Everyone has their own individuality and that's what makes ASU a great place to be. It has such a big diversity and no judgment on their students that everyone has a different background and they are still accepted for who they are.

Public transportation is really convenient at Arizona State University. They even have buses that run from different campuses in case students attend them and need a ride from one campus to another. They also have another bus that runs around the campus in case one class is on the other side of the campus so the students do not have to walk very far.

There is a lot of parking spaces as well as apartments around the school. However, sometimes it is a bit expensive but it is a very safe environment.

There are so many different ethnicity and religions that are welcomed at the school. I always noticed there were a lot of foreign exchange students and from what I hear is that they love it here as well. There is also clubs for different types of religions as well as ethnic groups in which they still welcome everyone even if they aren't the same religion or ethnicity.

Getting into a new major is relatively easy. All that needs to be done is to see a counselor for that type of school and decide your future classes. Changing or adding a major can get more complicated depending if it is in the same school or not. If it is for different departments, the student must get the approval of their original counselor and the new counselor. The reason why this is difficult is because there is miscommunication and bureaucracy to go through. Gaining or changing a major in the same department is easy because the student only needs to meet with the counselor that they already have.

Health & Safety:
If you have a bike, make sure you have a good bike lock. Don't leave any belongings of value either. ASU is just like any other place, if you leave your stuff, things will get stolen. There are a good number of emergency telephones and campus police are always around if you need them. I feel pretty safe as long as I'm on a bike or walking with someone.
College Junior 2013-05-16T19:47:13Z
There is always a place for students to hang out. The best place is at the Memorial Union where there is food and places to study. The library is nice, especially during finals week. It can get crowded but they offer free coffee and snacks for those that are there all night studying. There is a gym that is free if you are an ASU student (technically not since the payment is included in the tuition so why not go there?). There are really cool traditions, especially during homecoming week- my favorite is the lantern walk.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
