Greek life seems to be a large part of campus. There is always booths and other miscellaneous Greek events on campus during an average day. Most of the sororities and fraternities are very involved on campus as well as off campus with volunteer work.

I myself have not had any experience with drugs and have not been in situations that drugs were available.

As I do not have my own computer I frequent the computer labs a lot. I have never had any problems finding a computer to use. There a also a variety of places to go and work.

I had a late start last year and was unable to apply for scholarships until now. However I am rather lost and would like to have more assistance from the financial aid office. I am getting confused and frustrated with the process, which is hindering my changes of obtaining scholarships.

I love the English department at A.S.U., my English professor has become someone I look up to and respect. That personal touch has made my college experience a good one.

Health & Safety:
In August of 2012 I began my college career at A.S.U., I feel very safe on campus as there is always someone patrolling the campus. They campus has security cameras, and several services assisting in reporting crimes or unusual behavior. At the same time I did witness bikes being stolen and called the campus hotline they were unresponsive.

Mill Avenue is probably the most noted area for dining although the restaurants there are usually overpriced with average food. There are a few local gems such as Los Favs which is a great Mexican restaurant but other than that you'll see a lot of chains.

You're put into dorms based on what college your major is in. So if you're like me and fall under the Herberger School for Design and the Arts you will get stuck with the oldest dorms on campus. Not to mention the only dorms with community bathrooms. They will try to convince you that community bathrooms are a "fun" part of the college experience but please note this is a LIE. Especially considering how much money you will pay and how many times the hot water in the showers will not work (hint: too many times to count). All dorms on campus though have paper thin walls and are fairly close quarters. The only positive I can give is that since they are on campus it is very easy to get to class.

I went to the ASU West campus to pick up a book at the Sun devil bookstore while there realized I needed to print out an assignment. Received great direction to the library went in and plenty of computers available , printed my documents and was on my way. As a student you receive 50 free printed documents per semester I believe. Very accessible and convenient.

Tempe has a lot of great local activities to attend. There seems to always be something to do whether it is participating in a long-distance race, going to art displays, sports events, etc. There are a lot of fun small shops to visit and the people are really fun to be around!

Shuttle service from campuses in Phoenix metro area which include, ASU West, ASU Downtown, ASU Tempe and ASU Polytechnic(Mesa) are very accessible and convenient. Purchase a U Pass for $75.00 per semester and this allows unlimited travel on metro bus lines and the light rail which runs in downtown Phoenix and Tempe.

From my experience thus far at ASU, I feel that the university does a great job of being accepting of the diversity among students. I have noticed that the university puts a great emphasis on diversity and welcoming any and all who choose to attend.
College Junior 2013-01-18T06:33:57Z
Probably just a bit above average. There is Tempe Marketplace fairly close and then the huge Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale. The public library is close and there are several museums right off campus. There is a lot of talk that the school is all party, no study, but that's not really true at all. Safety is a bit of an issue here, but with so many students, you're never really walking around alone when it's dark out.

Criminal Justice and Criminology at ASU is one of the top programs in the country, most professors are extremely helpful and informative. I plan on being a law enforcement officer, the only issue is saying you went to ASU does take away from an application because it is known for its parties.
College Senior 2013-01-18T00:23:34Z
There are plenty of computers and printing is free (for now), but ASU's network is known to completely crash at least once a semester, one time it took a week to get it back up!

There are not many nightlife opportunities for people that are under 21, because the best bars and clubs are 21+, but there are always parties that are relatively easy to find.

I really can't speak for the Greek Life because I am not part of it, but from what I have personally seen the only thing they do is throw huge parties and get in trouble.

Health & Safety:
I have not heard any incidents of crime or theft on the West campus. It is small, friendly, and there are generally cops/security available for protection. There is also options available for somebody to walk you to the parking lot if you get out of class later at night.

Due to the fact that I am living at home, I do not qualify for many of the financial need based scholarships my school offers. This is because my parents make an average amount of money and could help me out, they just don't want to. I did, however, receive a merit-based scholarship for my tuition from my high-school which was disbursed promptly.

I am a freshman, secondary education major. Due to the fact that I am only in my freshman year I have not yet experienced some of the great things about this program. ASU has one of the top programs for teachers, called iTeach. In this program, we focus on our specific subject areas so that we are proficient and then are given more student teacher time than most programs. Also, many of the people in this program are hired directly after graduation.
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T03:49:53Z
I enjoy the ASU West campus, due to the fact that it's smaller and generally more friendly. The transition from high school to college can often be difficult but this campus is considerably less confusing and intimidating. I am an education major and the teachers in this program are excellent.

While the dining halls are all you can eat, they become very boring and bland once youre two months into class. They close at very early and inconvenient times, and are usually packed. Thankfully though, there are other places to eat on campus such as devils diner, or burger king, qdoba, papa johns and taco bell that are open late for those hard working students!
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T02:52:01Z
The public transportation is very convenient for students who want to travel to other areas around campus. For example, theres the orbit, which will take you to the tempe marketplace if you need to do some grocery shopping. As well as the lightrail which can take you form the phoenix area, all the way into downtown tempe.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
