I am a health sciences major. This is a really great program that can help you get into many different graduate schools. The teachers are helpful and the classes are interesting (if they aren't you picked the wrong major haha). I declared my major before starting school (the dorm downtown is split up so that each floor is a different major), but you do not need to decide before you apply and changing majors is relatively simple.

It's awful and a mess!!! Parking lots get full or it's reserved so you can't depend on it!!! I HATE it!!

I'm amazed at all the services that the buses go to pick up the students such as taking them to nightlife, picking up at on-campus parking or even the the parking that is far from school.

I'm impressed with the school especially the law school since I've never attended an ABA type of law school; it is amazing!

I am part of the College of Nursing and Health Innovation in Downtown Phoenix. I'm part of the direct admittance nursing program and although the requirements are really tough, it is possible to succeed! You have to maintain a 3.5 GPA minimum every semester, which is really stressful because you have to take a lot of difficult sciences. Overall the majority of my professors have been amazing teachers, however I have definitely had to work really hard to get good grades. I have learned a lot so far, however I've never studied so much in my life.

The dorms have a lot of perks, as well as downfalls. The Taylor Place dorms in Downtown Phoenix are very strict. You have to check in guests at a security desk and you're given a lot of rules, such as specific hours to be quiet. However, living on campus is nice because your classes are all close by and its nice that each room has its own shower. You will definitely meet a lot of people and make friends, however unless you're over the age of 21, there really isn't anything to do in Downtown Phoenix.

It's overall awesome. I live close to almost 10 popular dining places including the mall.
College Senior 2013-02-21T17:21:20Z
I live further from campus so I don't have much access to bars and clubs.

there's hardly any peer pressure going on. I know it's out there (the drugs) but i have not come into contact with any so far
College Junior 2013-02-21T03:18:18Z
so much partying, so much peer pressure. But it is easy to say no, easy to find other friends. But it is very dominant, especially at football games

Busniess is vital to understanding how people get along when faced with challenges such as supply and demand and how to budget.

I interned for a profitable advertising agency and like it for two reasons. First, it prepared me for what I was about to learn in class. Secondly, the pay helped me pay for school.

If I could do it again, I would have studied more in order to earn a higher mark.

Lots of off-campus dining opportunities are around all of the ASU campuses and are very affordable.

Health & Safety:
The safety on campus usually patrols at night because no one is really around and see who they can find being mischievous around the vehicles. But mostly they are around watching you but you can not see them.

The main use of public transportation used by students is the LightRail. There is free parking for those riding the LighRail from the city of Mesa to Phoenix. It is very convenient as takes you to both the Tempe and Downtown Phoenix campus. Other transportation include shuttles and buses.
College Junior 2013-02-19T18:17:34Z
There is a small library in the Downtown Phoenix campus that provides public use of computors. Often times, it can be completey full as there aren't many computors. Printing is free and the network is reliable.

There are a couple dining halls on the Downtown Phoenix campus alone. One of the two support healthy eating and offer a wide variety of foods in the menu. Popular restaurants are also located near/on campus.

I am not in greek life, but a lot of my friends are. It is active and apparent on campus but it does not over rule the school what so ever. The frats do have the best guarentee for parties though.

Sometimes during the week it is hard finding a place to eat after like 10 but on the weekends before 2am there is usually places to eat.

Even if we are the #1 party school or have a high acceptance rate, that does not at all reflect the academia here. Classes are hard here and the teachers for the most part are not push overs like in high school. I have homework or things to study everyday and most people do, even sociology majors have difficult homework. It is all about time management.

Health & Safety:
There is the safety escort and that is so amazing because now I don't have to walk from the library in the middle of the night to my dorm. It is really safe on campus, I haven't felt unsafe since being here.

the weather is amazing. if it rains it is super sweet and a relief because it can be so hot. I was wearing shorts the first week of Decemeber still and am wearing sun dresses in February, January was the coldest though for sure so bring some jeans and jackets.

Aside from the beginning of semesters, when everyone is logged onto MyASU and trying to register for classes, the school's network is pretty reliable.
The computing commons and Coor Hall are great, open facilities. Typically, one does not have to wait at all or very long to get onto a computer.
For larger or more significant printing jobs, off campus options are best.
There's alphagraphics, fedex-kinkos, and a few others.

I can't speak to how the meal plans work, as I graduated in 2011 and only used a meal plan from '07-'08. I have heard that ASU has recently phased out the sun dollars program. Favorite dining hall was in the Barrett Honors college facilities. I believe I spent most of my food money in the MU's P.O.D. market.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
