Computers are really good. They have a vast majority of them. Although most students have their own laptops, for students who don't it helps them out a lot. They are very accessible as well.

Public Transportation is pretty good in Tempe. They have small busses called Orbit where they go N, E, W, South of Tempe, which is mostly where all the college kids live and it takes you right to campus. The light rail is very nice as well. It helps a lot with transportation. We also have regular City of Tempe Buses and also a Flash bus that takes us from different spots on campus. We have a shuttle bus that takes us between campuses. So overall transportation is very good.

Smoking weed and drinking are very prevalent at ASU. Its not an inconvenience to anyone really. Unless your being belligerent, nothing will happen. Its pretty low-key.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T20:34:37Z
No classes ever get cancelled, It gets cold in the winter but no reason for classes to get cancelled. It also gets really hot during summer, but we aren't here for the 115 degree weather so its not really a problem.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T20:32:25Z
Many buses to take you through campus. They have ASU run buses for late night pickups, will pick you up and take you where you need to go safely.

II rent a house in Scottsdale, it is nice, but far from campus
College Senior 2013-01-15T20:23:12Z
?????????? I do not participate in any nightlife at ASU
College Senior 2013-01-15T20:21:30Z
I know that ASU has fantastic student facilities and activities. Sometimes I attend art related actiivites, but honestly I am a married and I hold two jobs to make ends meet, so I rarely attend campus activites
College Junior 2013-01-15T19:03:03Z
There are a ton of options for dining at ASU. The MU has a lot of options and the dorms have good dining halls as well. You can always find something good on campus. If not, there are places really close to campus too.
College Junior 2013-01-15T19:00:47Z
There is always something to do in Tempe. Mill is right next to campus and Tempe Marketplace is not far away. There are also on campus events to go to. ASU has a really great atmosphere.

People can get away with a lot on campus, especially in the dorms. This is supposed to be a dry campus, but people definitely get away with it. But if you are caught, they do get strict. I would advise just following the rules.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T18:58:19Z
What I like best about the different majors is they try and keep you together when you're housing on campus as a freshman. It helped a lot because most of the other students on my floor were taking close to the same classes as I was so I could go and get help if I needed it, just a few doors down! Most of the time Freshmen get stuck with taking the basic classes for their first year, but ASU has it so that you take your basic classes, but you also are taking one or two classes that have to do with your major, so it helped me stay dedicated to my major!

The drugs and alcohol are there, its like that at every college. Here at Arizona State, its not normally noticeable. If you go to a party, you're going to see it, obviously. But if you hanging out in your dorm, or hanging out on campus getting something to eat, you'll never see it. The people going to classes are dedicated since most teachers are pretty laid back on attendance. So while on campus, you'll never see it. I know for a fact that kids do it in their dorm room. Most of the time it stayed in the dorm room because students are worried about their CA's finding out. If you don't want to be around it or apart of it, it's not that hard to get away from it.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T17:40:44Z
There dorm room themselves are really nice, I don't feel like I'm living in a closet which is something I was worried about. What I found to be the most annoying about the dorms in my CA is strict at all and has grown friendships with some on the students on the floor. It may seem great at first, but because she is so laid back, she doesn't enforce quiet hours, which is huge. When I had an important test the next morning, I was kept up by kids running up and the down the halls at 1 am. My CA was one of the people running up and down the halls. She's really nice and really friendly, but because she's so close with some of the other students, she favors them big time. When somebody wants to report them of being loud, she just nods her head and says she'll take care of it. Later that night those people are back to being loud, as if my CA never said a word about it to them.
Another thing that is hard for me to handle is the only kitchen is in a lounge shared with 4 floors. I'm big into cooking my own meals, and when I get one planned out, and I go to the lounge, there are 20 kids sitting around watching football and playing pool. I would cook around them, but then I get their noses in my food asking if they can have some.
I managed to get along great with my roommates, even though we are all so different. I know that on my floor of 24 rooms, me and my roommates are the only full suite left. Almost everyone has either moved rooms or left because of roommate problems. Two weeks into the semester there was a fight between 2 girl roommates because one of them was always nagging on cleaning up. If Arizona State University did some kind of personality test, it would help greatly! But they don't, so until they do, I would almost expect to have a bad roommate.
All in all, the dorm rooms were really nice, and it's extremely convenient living on campus, but I had known all of this before I moved in, I probably would have never come to the dorms in the first place.

Guys & Girls:
The people at ASU are outgoing and actively participate in social events at school. Many students have great relationships with their peers and significant others. Most of the students look good and dress well. There are some students that wear weird clothes, but the majority does not.

The drug scene at ASU is very big. Drinking is huge at ASU and many students party every weekend. The campus is supposed to be alcohol-free, but it this is definitely not enforced.
Recent Alumnus 2013-01-15T17:07:48Z
The dining halls don't have the greatest food, but there are plenty of enjoyable fast food places in the union.
College Senior 2013-01-15T16:32:20Z
okay choices nothing great, its just not very diversity.
College Junior 2013-01-15T07:47:15Z
Light rail is great. Everything else is not. the orbit shuttle is free but goes extremely slow and there are too many drug addicts and homeless people that ride the orbit.
College Junior 2013-01-15T07:45:44Z
The only reason I'm at ASU is for Sustainability. We have one of the best if not the best Sustainability Education programs in the country.
College Junior 2013-01-15T07:44:24Z
Tempe is fun but only a few mile radius by the school. Once you leave that area it won;t be too much fun. Cops are very strict over here, so if you like being reckless, I don't recommend doing it here.
College Junior 2013-01-15T07:39:01Z
Arizona State is one of those schools that have a reputation for a party school but actually have some great programs. For example, the School of Sustainability and W.P. Carey School are great colleges within ASU. Some of the best professors teach i this school. On the other hand, if you're major doesn't stick out at ASU, I recommend you attend a different university.
College Junior 2013-01-15T00:47:41Z
The library is open 24 hours and the computer labs are open the majority of the time. Printing is free at the computer labs but not at the library. The network is usually very reliable and fast. The wireless internet is great and available almost everywhere on campus. If you do not have a personal computer you will definitely be able to survive and do well in your classes. I do not have a computer and the computer lab and library was a great resource to have.
College Junior 2013-01-15T00:41:24Z
ASU told me everything that I needed for financial aid and the process went rather smoothly. On the My ASU page, it lists everything you need to get done in order to be ready for classes/ASU. It was a very helpful and beneficial tool.

ASU's Downtown Phoenix campus has 70:30 girl to guy ratio, and the diversity isn't all that great.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
