I have not yet found an intership. I think this is because I just transfered into ASU this Spring and was to late to get into the Physic classes I wanted. I plan to take summer physics classes to catch up on my studies. I am looking forward to an intership in the Physics Department as soon as possible and will begin the hunt as soon as I can so I am a little concerned. I currently teach Chess part-time at local elementary schools.

Lots of good inexpensive food on and off campus. I like that I can use my food plan to buy the food I want to eat.

Health & Safety:
Good communications, we know about incidents soon after they occur. Alot of bicycles are used on campus and my room mate recently got his stolen, not good.

There is alot of off campus housing available in Tempe. The problem is finding the right housemate. Though I don't live off campus, I see many housing complexes surrounding the campus. I live on campus so cannot speak to pricing, comfort, amenities or parking.

I would say that overall academic programs at ASU are very good.
However, some are better than others. Math and science programs generally have very good reviews, but many teachers aren't too great in their areas and some of the TAs aren't wonderful. Plus, many of the math/sciences courses are very difficult and require a lot of online work.
But general education courses and electives are easy and tend to have great teachers.
People who graduate from ASU are well-rounded, intelligent people; so I'd say ASU is doing well.

Transportation is AMAZING around ASU. First, there's the light rail. It travels all the way to Central Phoenix and Mesa and doesn't cost that much if you're riding once. Plus, it runs until about 3 AM on the weekends.
Then, there's the bus system which is also great and navigates the areas closer to school. It's a great way to get to the grocery store or a mall.
Also, there are buses that drive around campus, in case your class in really far away.
Expense wise, you can get those three options for unlimited rides for $75 a semester; I'd say that's pretty good.
On campus, there are tons of bike racks if that's your green go-to. And if you're hurt, ASU has cart drivers pick up people on crutches who can't get around campus quick enough.

The campus isn't the great, but the atmosphere is. I love the teachers, the TAs, and the tutors. Other students are more friendly. It's overall a great campus.
The teachers definitely know what they're doing and their math and science programs are phenomenal. There's quite a range of majors, so I recommend it for eveyone.

For ASU, we have various councils and committees that involve diverse cultures together. We do have a large body of caucasians at Arizona State, but we have a diverse crowd of Europeans and Middle Easterners at ASU. We do need more African-Americans here.

Health & Safety:
For a large campus, it's pretty calm during the week. You just have to watch out for cyclist, skateboarders and oncoming vehicles. Some thefts have occurred, but mainly when a lot of students are not on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T22:15:55Z
There is so much renovation going on and new buildings just finished. It is so nice to be at a campus that is so up to date and nice.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T22:11:02Z
It is available, but not the biggest thing at ASU.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T22:04:47Z
It's not everything like the last school I attended. It's out there of course but it all depends on the people you hang out with.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T21:51:03Z
Health & Safety:
The Health and Safety at ASU is great because they provide students with email or text alerts whenever a crime scene or a harmful toxin is released on campus. But if you want to walk around at night, go with a group. It's still in the middle of Tempe and there are creepy people who like to wander around the campus.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T21:45:17Z
Our school is a big melting pot. So many people from all over the world come here. They all have different backgrounds when it comes to ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and political beliefs. And because everyone is so different, I believe there is a respect there for the differences that exist; there are hardly any arguments.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T21:42:21Z
I don't think anyone cares whether you are in the Greek life or not. Nobody pressures you to join a fraternity or sorority, either, which is nice. But when it comes to how the Greek life on campus affects campus life, I personally don't see a difference.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T21:38:22Z
I have not yet been searching for off-campus living, but I haven't seen any options on the ASU housing website; it's all regulated towards the on-campus halls and apartments.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T20:14:20Z
Public transportation here is the greatest. Everything you need is within walking distance. If its a little out of reach there are plenty of flash busses that travel around Tempe. There is a light rail that can bring you to the downtown campus. The intercampus shuttles provide a free and convenient way to travel to all of the local campuses. Even the valley metro bus provides everybody with affordable and constant transportation. If you want and need to travel back home, Sky Harbor Airport is less than 25 minutes away.
College Sophomore 2013-02-27T20:06:08Z
Greek life at ASU is only good for those who want to party. Some seem to actually want to learn but the majority want to get by. Greeks are viewed as stuck up and egotistical compared to the non-greeks.
College Senior 2013-02-27T15:56:57Z
Weather doesn't really affect the campus experience.
College Junior 2013-02-27T02:59:03Z
Some are really nice, like Hassy and Barrett. However then you have PV main and Best, which are dirty. Its all what you pay for, the nice ones are very expensive.
College Junior 2013-02-26T22:09:50Z
It is blue skies most all the time. It get's cold at night in the winter obviously but more than you would think. I haven't been through the summers here, but I heard it gets very hot.
College Sophomore 2013-02-26T07:25:14Z
You rarely notice these drugs on campus. You kind of just know.
College Sophomore 2013-02-25T23:06:39Z
The facilities at ASU are great. Varsity sports are of high importance and the teams are treated like royalty. The games are importance, and so is attendance!
College Sophomore 2013-02-25T23:03:39Z
Drinking is the most obvious activity in college. Drug use depends on the crowd you associate with. Pot is probably the most common thing to notice on campus in dorms. The drug use and drinking isn't overwhelming.
College Sophomore 2013-02-24T23:13:16Z
There are a variety of places down here in tempe that are incredible and of such a great quality. Being from california, I was worried I would never find any good japanese food, but there are even two great restuarants near by my dorm! There are many good mexican and iltalian restaurants, even vegan places as well. Some are more expensive than others, but they all have some good deal on their menus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
