I am a transfer student and I have had good teachers and bad teachers just like any other campus. I just have a problem with the school on how when the whole class is having trouble with a teacher they do nothing about it. They are low on teachers for my major and they give us graduate students who don't care to teach us and then we are wasting paying lots of money for no education.

Tempe is by far one of the best cities to live in if you are a college student. If we had a good greek system here I think ASU would be by far the top place to go to. With great academics and atmosphere nothing beats ASU.

I go to Arizona State University Polytechnic campus and the food there is just terrible. No selection at all and in the foods they have it is just so bad. They have a decent place for sandwich's and a decent hot dog joint, but other than that the place has the worst food ever. Tempe has a lot of better options.

There are a lot of international students here, a lot more than what I expected. IT's hard to say though because there are so many people from in-state. There are a lot of people that share their religion and other beliefs on campus.

I don't use the dining areas very often but when I do I enjoy that there are places like Taco Bell and Subway. I like the options available.

The labs and simulators here are amazing. Arizona has a great resource of things that you can use.

People are always trying to help you no matter what subject it is. If you need help there is always someone there to help you.

Drugs are pretty much all done behind the scenes so there not noticeable unless your with the people who do them.

Something is always happening on campus, very sociable and late nights

Health & Safety:
Tempe can get pretty bad at night even on campus, lots of thefts.

If you like parties, then ASU is the place for you. Everyone drinks, even if they are underage. Mill Avenue is nothing but trashy bar and nightclubs and there is lots of smking and drugs. The campus police tend to be lazy and there is not a lot of law enforcement on campus. ASU is absolutely a party school.

Traffic is always terrible, especially when there is an event. The lightrail can also be very sketchy all day and it's slow. There are also a lot of homeless people that like to hang around the parking lots at night. If you plan to park far away on campus or take the bus or lightrail, bring pepper spray!

Lots of computers are available on campus and at the library. However the network can be a little slow or even not work at times. But, no more than what is to be expected. The classroom computer labs tend to be very slow logging in.

I would not recommend Arizona State to anyone. The people are rude and the school tends to care more about sports and fraternities than they do academics. While some of the professors that I have had are wonderful, others are just downright lazy. There is no diversity at all and there are far too many bars and clubs around campus.The campus is overly crowded and messy. Some of the faculty here are not at all helpful and just don't want to be bothered.

Many of my friends have gotten internships, but I have not. It is something that you should look into early in your college career since many opportunities get taken very quickly due to a high volume of students. Having an internship always looks great on a resume.

The only problems I encountered were with certain Psychology advisors at ASU. Some were very rude and unhelpful while others were very kind and helpful. Choose Cody, he was the best one I've met!

I love ASU. The main campus is huge, is very diverse, and provides a great deal of opportunity in many areas for students.
College Senior 2012-11-05T03:25:05Z
very good, especially if cost a concern, one can get a very good apartment for a pretty decent cost.

My particular major is very famous all round the world, excellent faculty, and many more courses to choose from.

Coming from a different state university for my undergraduate degree, I was very unimpressed by the local atmosphere at ASU. They definitely have the typical college bar scene, but the downfall of ASU is the way the campus is spread out. There are major roads and a lot of local traffic driving through campus at all times. It is really difficult to get the "college feel" while on campus due to the city of Tempe. There are many professionals, families and students intermixed in the city and that really takes away from the atmosphere. The classes can be spread out over sections of campus and although there is the positive addition of the lightrail that serves the campus, it also services the downtown Phoenix area and many business professionals and families also take over this mode of transportation. ASU has great programs, but the placement of campus makes me grade the atmosphere so low. If you found a program you love, then stick to it and lie on campus, but if you're debating, you should really take a tour of campus during rush hour and see how much you really like it.

Diversity at Arizona State is pretty average. While there are multiple opportunities for students of different racial background to attend, the vast majority of students are white and come from a middle-class background. In my program of study, there is only one person who comes from a minority group as a single working-mother with low socioeconomic status. There is a wide variety of clubs and activities specifically aimed towards minority groups, but not enough to be a selling point of the campus.

The financial aid office at Arizona State University was rather confusing and unorganized. Coming from a different undergraduate university, I had certain expectations for the financial aid offices to be helpful about deadlines and award information. I found it incredibly difficult to get a consistent answer across the different aid offices and was asked to follow completely different protocols in submitting paperwork depending on who I talked to, even in specific departments. ASU does offer a lot of tools to find financial aid on their website, but overall, it was a bit of a headache to get receive my awards.

Sports at Arizona State are pretty well received. Students may dress up on Friday's to show "school spirit" throughout the campuses. Many groups can be found around the main campus practicing lesser known activities such as roller-footing, tight-roping and parkour.

At the west campus there are computers on the first floor of the library, as well as a computer lab in the basement. The computer lab has powerstrips available for students with laptops. I've never had trouble finding a computer, although I usually prefer to use a laptop. The connection speed and reliability of the wifi are excellent all over campus.

I've seen students snort coke in class and others bring flasks or alcohol to class. It's crazy.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
