Several different buses go around the campus (Flash, which goes in both clockwise and counter-clockwise) and between the four different campuses (Inter-campus shuttle) which, mind you, are in 4 different cities. And the Orbit bus line, which is a public transportation in Tempe goes around the campus and in the neighborhoods, which helps when you live off campus. The city of Tempe is also hugely bike friendly, so it's easy to get around without a car, sometimes it's even easier. There's also a late night security pick up if you need it for staying late on campus. The Campus Security is easily accessible too. The only downfall is not all campuses are like Tempe. Downtown Phoenix is small, spread out through urban city. Not so biker friendly, but easy to navigate. West Campus in Glendale is more in a 'family' neighborhood, so the bike transport is alright, city buses aren't super reliable always but they are easy to get to. Never been to the campus in Mesa, but I hear it's small.

I do not like how our transportation is. It is very confusing and not accurate.
College Senior 2012-12-02T17:08:19Z
they always try to enforce ridiculous things that are never going to happen, like walking your bike on campus. we have the bikes to ride them on campus. they wasted a ton of money on the campaign to stop people from riding bikes or skateboards on campus.

Health & Safety:
ASU isn't very safe at all. there are constantly car accidents all around the campus. and there area around the campus is known as sin city because of how much crime goes on their.
College Senior 2012-12-02T17:01:22Z
Tempe has a lot to offer, if you are over 21 anyways, but the area surrounding the university isn't safe at all. you dont want to go out at night.

Guys & Girls:
ASU is a very preppy school. Most girls wear bright colors, a tank top and jeans, and a lot of summer clothes. The guys tend to dress the same. Jeans and a tee or board shorts and a tee. Its all warm weather clothing here. Most of the students are very attractive and outgoing.
College Junior 2012-12-02T09:30:31Z
There are a good amount of parties around ASU. However, there isn't much peer pressure to go to the parties.
College Junior 2012-12-02T09:26:03Z
There is always parking available. Unfortunately, parking passes are very expensive and there is a bit of a walk to campus. There are private lots right across the street from the campus that you can park at but the daily fee adds up unless you are only staying for an hour or two a day.

I just applied for financial aid and am still in the process so I have no opinion so far.
College Sophomore 2012-12-01T19:46:32Z
There are tons of restaurants around! You will never go hungry, they are cheap and easy to get to.
College Sophomore 2012-12-01T19:43:48Z
There are police everywhere, you can't really get away with much. The are very strict on drug use.
College Sophomore 2012-11-30T04:26:24Z
I love Arizona weather. I love the heat. The coldest it gets is 40 degrees in the dead of winter, late at night. I love the random rain and lack of snow.
College Sophomore 2012-11-30T04:22:13Z
Awesome! Free transportation is everywhere! They have a shuttle that runs to all four campuses, every half hour, constantly running. Tempe also has a bus system that takes you around campus. Absolutely wonderful.

I'm pretty sure there is a slightly above average drug usage here , because there are so many parties. However , I honestly don't get out much. But I know there are plenty of drugs here. Nothin too harsh, though.
College Sophomore 2012-11-30T04:16:13Z
They enforce the rules they have very well. No smoking in the dorms. At all. No alcohol or drugs allowed in the dorms. And no rearranging the double occupancy rooms if there is one person in there.
College Sophomore 2012-11-30T04:11:56Z
Well, I changed from living at home to on campus, so I brought the hassle upon myself. However, one of the lady's I had to deal with was very unhelpful and clearly didn't want anyone to be there. I would recommend more walk throughs for those that aren't sure how to navigate.

The financial aid office got back to me pretty quick and is extremely helpful in finding out where you stand financialy. ASU offered me enough financial aid to help pay for the entire year (though living off campus) and this is considering that I applied late for aid as well.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T21:06:19Z
Tempe AZ is pretty great its basically been absorbed by ASU and you always find something to do. It's got a lot of mall's and theaters if thats your style plus Mill Ave (by which ASU is located) is great for night life. You have average traffic and the city is set up in a grid so as long as you know north and where you are going you can't get lost. Everybody mostly keeps to themselves but are mostly friendly.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T06:35:41Z
They have free computers and printing in computer commons, but the internet is so poor it becomes frustrating some nights
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T06:30:47Z
They have free buses, the flashback and the flashforward. I like taking them, but theyre usually really early so you miss it. Plus the back stops around 6 and the forward stops around 11 like what..? I wish they would run on the weekends too. They have safety escort service, but they take forever and sometimes never show up.
College Senior 2012-11-29T03:12:50Z
The campus is huge, creates a wide range of class oppertunities to keep your interest. The classes are the perfect size and is easy to interact with the professor and classmates.
College Senior 2012-11-29T03:11:02Z
The professors are super helpful, willing to help and understanding. The needed material to recieve a passing grade are provided to you, you just need to do the readings and study. Online testing creates a convenient oppertunity.

I am not into the Greek life; non-Greek. I do not have the extra cost to join the Greek life. The manditory events and busy schedule of the Greek life is not ideal for a working, full time student. The Greeks do gain a sense of brother/ sisterhood but they have a bad reputation due to their parties.

As a student in the business school, I have had the best proffessors, and a curriculum that makes me feel like the things I'm learning are useful. The workload is more than average, but not overwhelming.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
