The only downfall to where I live, Hassayampa Academic Village, is that it is SO far away from every single one of my classes. They dorms themselves are pretty nice, and much more spacious then I thought. Only downfall to the room is the showers. I wish there were tubs.

It is not terrible food, but it is also not worth the almost 10 dollars a meal that we pay for it. It could be worse, but it could be better. The Hassayampa dining hall is the worst, and Pitchfork is the best.

Health & Safety:
I always feel safe at Arizona State. There are always police and campus security around, even at night. When there is something dangerous on campus, you can get text messages sent form the school keeping you updated, and the dorms and housing are always well secured, needing at least 3 doors of entry with card key before you can get to a hall.

Hard drugs at Arizona State University is not a big thing. Occasionally you will run across people who do pot, but I have never met anything doing real dangerous drugs. Alcohol is a big deal on campus though. ASU has a reputation for partying and unfortunately, people like to maintain that, rather than overcome it.

I have my own computer and printer, but there are a lot of labs around campus to work on. Printing is really expensive so I would get your own printer. The wifi is good.

Arizona State is right next to downtown Tempe which has many night clubs and bars. There are only a select few night clubs who allow 18+ in, however if you are 21 there is a ton of night life to partake in.

There is a very large variety of off campus housing for Arizona State. The campus is surrounded with various apartment complexes as well as large houses for students to rent.

Varsity sports at Arizona State is a large part of living on campus. The sports teams are so fun to watch and bring the entire campus together to cheer them on. Arizona State also has amazing sports facilities. Along with the football and basketball stadium, campus also has an amazing student recreation center that has an Olympic size pool as well as two floors worth of work out equipment for any interested student.

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!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
