I think that the financial aid process is not the issue i believe that it is the criteria in which you are graded based on need is the issue. College is hard enough and having to live paycheck to paycheck and get amazing grades is extremly hard. A broader range of criteria should be established when determining the need factor for students when it comes to college money.

Tons and Tons of restaurants close to school or within a short drive or bike ride. Plenty of variety in price, culture and portion sizes.

Mill provides a good place to go with a variety of clubs and bars with easy access to safe public transportation like cabs or the lightrail.

I came to Arizona State University to attend the W.P. Carey school of Business. It is ranked one of the top thirty business schools in the world and has many learning as well as networking opportunities.

ASU Main is the most diverse campus by far, because they have people from all over the world. There are many different races and religions at ASU, and for the most part they are all tolerated.

The Downtown housing (Taylor Place) is fantastic for freshmen! The dorms are very nice and pretty spacious. I really like the sense of community that you get as a freshmen, and you can get to class in 5 minutes.

Health & Safety:
The ASU campus police are always around and always make their presence visible. In the dorms Downtown, they walk up and down each floor occasionally to make sure that everything is under control. They are outsides and inside each building that is occupied by ASU students. I have never felt unsafe while on the campus. There is a lot of security, like swiping your badges to get into the dorms and security cameras in every hallway and elevator.

The facilities at ASU are extremely good and serve their respective purposes well. The new and the old both are reliable and extremely helpful.

If you can't drink or smoke, then the various nightlife outlets will be limited. If not, you can have a fantastic time with good people and good fun. The ASU crowd definitely knows how to party hard if your into it and if not there are plenty of other options for folks who aren't looking to get too crazy. Something for everyone!
College Sophomore 2012-12-24T06:02:12Z
The ASU Polytechnic campus has excellent facilities, dining and architechture. The helpful staff are always available and one's fellow students are always there to lend a helping hand! Love the campus and everyone on it!

There is always something to do at ASU. For starters, there are more than 500 clubs on campus, and students are allowed to start a club that ASU might not have. Speakers and scientists come every day to ASU to talk about a recent discovery or work in progress that is being done in real life, which gives an insight as to what is going on in the modern world. Concerts, comedy shows, plays and other events are advertised well in advance, and many of these performances are held on campus. The best turnouts recently have been for a standup comedy show, B.o.B. concert and Mac Miller concert. I cannot go on to describe all the amazing events and programs that have been held within this last semester at ASU without writing a short story. This is why I believe that ASU is definitely one of the most unique colleges we have in the United States and that it gives the largest variety of activities and involvement opportunities to its students.

Since ASU has become a "dry" campus, the police have been buckling it down on underage drinking and being under the influence of illegal substances. Any parties held within walking distance from campus have been busted within an hour. As for drinking in the door, "quiet hours" have been put in place starting at 9:00pm to make it easier for Community Assistants to search dorm rooms and find alcohol. This is not the sort of place you would want to hold a large and loud party at. And any party that's advertised on Facebook or Twitter is almost guarunteed to be busted by the police.

There are usually open parking spots on campus. However, that is only because on-campus parking must be payed for in advance. The price of this increases with convenience, the most expensive being the closest to campus. If you have money to spend, then there is no problem at all. Because many college students are typically short on money, I would say the parking situation is only fair--not great.

If you take summer classes, and at the the end of the Spring semester, it is really hot, and you will need water. The rest of the year, the weather is great. Occasional rain, but nothing serious, and it never snows.
College Senior 2012-12-22T17:38:00Z
Parking is terrible. People complain "Freshmen don't get good parking" or "All students don't get good parking", but nobody gets good parking. There are garages that are closeish to class, but they are expensive and if you get there at the wrong time you will park on the fourth floor or the roof. There is a cheaper garage that is very far away, but your car will be broken into there at least once a year, and possibly stolen. There are parking lots, but they're not much cheaper, also fill up, and the sun will destroy your car.
I'm looking into other ways to get to class for next year, including biking and the light rail. There are a lot of bike racks (which also sometimes fill up!) and the light rail stops on campus.

Getting into Ira A. Fulton and Barrett is slightly harder than the rest of ASU, but any good student can get in those two. Barrett had a separate application which required letters of recommendation and an essay or two, but it was less than for a private college such as Stanford.

The athletics at Arizona State, in general, have shown to be very disappointing.

Plenty of computer labs/libraries at ASU. This semester there was free printing which was so nice. And the speed is average, depending on where you are. Printing is easy, but there are usually people there to help you if needed. However it's still nice to have your own computer and printer because when it's busy at the library and you have to print something "real quick" before your next class it can sometimes be a hassle.
I did give an A because the printing was free and at the computer lab I go to, there are rarely other people and I can quick get in and get out. However this rating does fluctuate with the computer lab you are in.

Guys & Girls:
In my opinion, the Tempe campus has a lot of stuck-up jocks and preps. I never really got to know anyone there; no one was very friendly. I will say this though: LOTS of hot guys for people watching! At the Polytechnic campus though, it's much smaller and has a more community feeling. There are all kinds of cool people on the Polytech campus, and you can really get to know them because there aren't so many distractions from the huge feeling of the campus around you. The guys here are pretty cute too, if you're into the nerdy type -- most of the people on this campus are the science majors.
College Senior 2012-12-22T02:23:40Z
There's a pretty decent variety of food around the main campus, and it's all relatively convenient. It's always easy to find a pizza place to eat at after a hard-core studying session, which is a plus.
College Senior 2012-12-22T02:20:52Z
It's alright, but when you really need a computer, you have to search for one. Also, if your bring your own laptop, the network gets overloaded so you have to try to get on the less used one. And there are NO OUTLETS for your laptop ANYWHERE! You have to strategically scope out where there is an outlet and get it as soon as someone walks away from it.
College Senior 2012-12-22T00:25:22Z
Parking is expensive and even the cheapest you still have a long walk from your classroom. If your into exercising then it would be find, but the prices I'am not a fan of. I would reccomend getting a bike or skateboard to get around easier after you do find a parking space. Make sure to leave plenty of time before your class starts.

As for myself being a transfer student it is a hassle going through the paper work and figuring out how I will be able to pay. The main criteria for admission was the GPA and the ACT or SAT scores. The GPA I have, but the ACT I have not tooken it. I thought being a transfer student from the same state it should be an easier proccess. I think it would help that the schools would work together to help students transffering. Advisors just tell you this is what you have to do, and just some bit of explaining, but one is pretty much on thier own. It would feel more appreciative that one is going to an university that would be more helpful through the process and make a new student feel welcomed.

I have not been a part of any internships, but I plan on having an internship in the future to prepare me for my major. My major at the moment is Supply Chain management and hope to further my career with this program. The only jobs I have had growing up is working with my father in his business and helping my father run his restaurant. With the future internships I' am able to recieve I know it will help me be successful.

Health & Safety:
The counseling services is terrible! I don't feel the satisfaction from it and they make you pay a large fee for it! If you have your own insurance better find services through them.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
