I love Arizona State! It has been my dream school since I first saw the campus in seventh grade and I couldn't be happier that my dreams are finally coming true! ASU has given me so many opportunities and I have met some amazing people.
Arizona State University offers a diverse environment through the education and student body. What i like about this college is the engineering program that they provide along with a variety of engineering majors. the size of the school is just right for me, even though I went to small schools I feel like this new experience will benefit me. My family is proud to know that i am going here and so are my friends, most of them going to ASU as well. I couldn't think of any complaints going to the college i have walked the entire Tempe Campus and everything looks peaceful from what i can tell.
I love it ! It is very resourceful and helpful!
My opinion of the school hasn't changed. It's awesome. however, my reason for calling Arizona state university awesome has changed. I came to ASU as a partier and I found as much enjoyment with the parties as I could of ever imagined. halfway through the first semester, as I began to seriously consider my future, I gave up the party scene, joined a local church, and have found more happiness in following the way of god and being sober than I've ever found partying. I love ASU, and I'm thankful to be able to attend such a great university.
I think ASU is a great place to learn and meet new friends.
I really enjoy attending ASU. Walking around everyday on the beautiful campus, meeting with tutors who are always there to help you in tough times, and attending classes both online and at the campus really helps me to feel accepted and valued. I really feel like my education is in good hands.
ASU ? Do i need to write up my review ? Being a Best Business school, ASU is stepping in the Innovation (Engineering) quite rapidly. MIT,UCLA, be scared.. Be very scared ASU is coming up the rank. Best school in the country in all the fields.
Arizona State University is a nice school. I like the atmosphere there and the different clubs they offer. Advisors really want to help you succeed and finish your education.
I really like this school. I currently attend the online campus. The teachers are very helpful. They provide materials that make the experience of an online class more enjoyable.
Even though there is 50K+ people on campus, you can find your own little niche
I love the college campus it is so easy to walk around and get to where you need to go; except the school is becoming very crowded. I like the college feel the town has and everything ASU has to offer.
ASU is a fun, forward-thinking university. The best thing about ASU is that it's like a small city, so there's really no point in being shy. Since there are so many people, you may never run into the same person twice - so you may as well talk to everyone, because you'll never be singled out as "the weird kid" here. The high student population makes it easy to make friends, find others who share your interests, or just to meet someone to study with. I think our university is just the right size; there are so many different, fascinating people here that you're sure to meet new friends from all over the country, or even all over the world. Tempe, the main campus, is definitely a college town; there are so many great restaurants, venues, and the weather is great - it's hard not to love it. There is a TON of school pride here at ASU, which gives Sun Devils a sense of community even though they may be far from home. From my experience, the most frequent student complaints are that we have to walk really far to get to class. The campus is huge, so it can become a pain; however, with so much space, you can hang out anywhere and not be invading anyone else's privacy. One experience I will always remember is freshman orientation because at the end, all the new freshman got to learn the fight song together, which made us all realize that starting college was not so scary after all; there are thousands of other students in your exact situation, so you're never alone.
This school provides a great education for all. There isn't anything I would change except for the horrible heat and the raising tuition prices! My school is very large, but I know my way around everywhere which makes it seem smaller. People consider this school to be ordinary when I tell them I go here. It is definitely located in a college town. The school's administration does a bad job with communicating clearly. There is a great load of school pride.
A lot of ASU pride in all four campuses. Students here are big fans of sports and so we always wear our ASU shirts proudly to every game. Although sometimes the magnitude of students going to the ASU Stadium can be overwhelming.
I'm happy with my decision to attend Arizona State University. I grew up in Glendale, Az but Tempe is a world of its own. I've had a few courses at the Downtown campus as well, it's nice to get a change in scenery and see what the other campuses have to offer. Our university is not short on its pride, sports events are great gatherings especially when it comes to competition with our rivals from U of A down in Tuscon. The Tempe campus is definitely the heart of the institution regardless of the other three campuses strewn across the valley. Our school competes with Ohio State University each year for the highest enrollment in the nation. Needless to say, there's never a shortage of people which means there's never a moment when a new connection couldn't be formed. My freshman year and living in the dorms holds some of my most cherished memories. You're taken out of your comfort zone and plunged in this whole new world within a world; priceless. Some scoff when they find out I attend ASU but I know they base their preconceptions from old rumors about the partying lifestyle here. There are thousands of successful beings who have walked, are walking, and will walk the vast expanse of this campus. Arizona State University is my university, no regrets.
This may be the most populated school in the country, but at times it doesn't feel so big. Once you start taking classes in your major you seem to be around the same students all the time, and it makes this huge campus feel more managable. Also, all of Tempe seems very supportive of ASU, and everyone seems to have some devil pride!
I was in love with Arizona State the second I stepped on campus and enjoy it more and more each day. Though it is a large school, the set up of the campus is SO convenient with all courses being involved in the same viscidity. The weather is almost always perfect which results in positive attitudes and a positive atmosphere. I have never felt like this university is too large because it is so easy to meet new people, which in turn helps to scale the university down and make it a more personable experience.

Overall, I feel Arizona State is a great university. I attend the School of Social Work on the Downtown Phoenix Campus. The fact this is one of the smaller campuses has allowed me to get highly involved in multiple school organizations such as the Residence Hall Association, Residential Review Board, Undergraduate Student Government, Social Work Student Organization and the National Residence Hall Honorary. This campus has roughly 7,000 students and only 5,000 live in Taylor Place. The Residence Hall is like a large family. Unlike other college dorm rooms, you can control the temperature in your room here, there is also wifi and cable tv in every room.
Honestly, it's easier to think about what I don't love. I love the food here on campus, which is on par with gourmet food. I love the classes, especially the Harry Potter one I want to take. I love the dorms and lounges, with their wide-screen TVs. I love the fact that bowling after 9 is free at the rec center, and that they show movies every Friday. I love that our campus does slightly off-beat but interesting things, like have someone coming in to talk about time travel or hosting cattle drives. I love how everyone on Barrett campus knows everyone's name - we're a small-knit group in a big community. Really, it wouldn't be wrong to say I love nearly everything here.
Actually, I can think of one thing I don't love: the price.
I absolutely love ASU! Being a student here gives me a sense of pride, and when walking through a sea of gold shirts on game day, it is obvious that everyone else here feels that pride as well. The best thing about this school is that there is a place for everyone; whether you are a joke, a fraternity or sorority kid, a geek, a religious follower, or anything in between, there is a group just waiting to make you feel at home. The Tempe campus is always lively and fun to be on. There is always something going on around the MU, or if you want time to yourself there are hidden places all over campus that are perfect for relaxing or studying.
I love Arizona State University! It is a large campus but they offer so many ways to become involved which makes your experience better as well as makes you feel like a part of the ASU community. Often times large colleges make it difficult to get into the classes you need to complete but I have never struggled to find open spots and the academic advisors are very helpful. Another concern is usually class size but I have only had two 300 person classes in my past two years here, other than that the class size is usually under 30. In between classes I spend my time at our Student Union building people watching, studying, or talking with friends. There is a lot to do in the Tempe area as it is not a small college town and located in the center of Phoenix. When I tell people I go to ASU they assume that all I do is party but that is an untrue stereotype. If you want to it is easy to find parties but it is not a necessary activity for college life here. Academics are taken very seriously and the school is very accommodating towards our needs by offering numerous tutoring centers, review sessions (both online and in person), and teacher and TA office hours. I love this school! It is a perfect mix of a fun learning environment.
The best aspect of ASU is the diversity. I am involved in sports, Greek life, and professional clubs.
The school can really seem too large if you don't get involved. My freshman year wasn't all it could be because I didn't get into things on campus until sophomore year.
I love ASU. The best part about it, is that I have a ton of resources available to me. Whether you're looking for tutors, study buddies, parties, or clubs, ASU has it all.
The size of the student body can be intimidating so I strongly recommend finding some type of organization to get involved with. I chose to join a fraternity, and it was a great decision because it made campus more familiar. Having a community to be a part of made the size of the school just right.
Overall, there's a lot of school pride. The sports teams aren't as popular as I'd like them to be, but the majority of kids like to rep ASU.
Tempe is somewhat a college town. The areas near campus are catered to college kids, but not too much after that. The campus is great! It's clean, modern, and a fun place to go every day. There are plenty of student hangouts like the Memorial Union and Hayden Library.
The best surprise about ASU was the quality of education I've gotten so far. I'm currently a double major in Sustainability and Supply Chain Management. The sustainability program is awesome and unique. At the end of the semester I plan to apply to the Barrett Honors College, which is very prestigious.
When I first applied to ASU I was annoyed by the number of times people labeled it as a party school, but I don't care anymore. I'm very pleased with the education I'm getting, and I'm having a great time.
I have nothing but good things to say about Arizona State University. As with every opportunity, the school will be what you make of it. The university is one of the largest schools in the country; however, I mainly stay on the Tempe campus. Also, I have gotten involved in Greek life and different clubs. This helps you meet new people and it makes the school seem a lot smaller. Some people think that Arizona's reputation as a party school means that there will be too many distractions to focus on homework. This is false. Arizona has three different libraries on the Tempe campus alone. There are also many lounges and study areas where students can get away. I spend most of my time on campus on the Memorial Union patio or reading at the pool. I used to be in the architecture program so the majority of my assignments were large projects. The design school and my Freshman dorm had an excellent studio space where I could work in a comfortable environment.
I think there is a lot of school pride and this school has a lot of credibility and a beautiful campus. It is a very nice part of town as well.
I love the diversity of ASU. Almost every culture, race, religion, sexual orientation, and country is represented at ASU. This makes it easy for everyone to find somewhere where they fit it. At first, the number of people at ASU may seem overwhelming, but before long, you will find somewhere to fit in.
I came to Arizona State for the Honors College, and I would say it's the best thing about this school. The classes and opportunities that the Honors College offer challenge students who are looking to get more out of their college experience.
It is quite a big school, and it feels hard to get involved on campus at times. There is just so much to get involved in, and it's hard to wrap your mind around how big this school is. It's not a major problem; it just takes extra effort to get involved.
People are unimpressed when I say I go to ASU because it's known as a party school, but luckily the Honors College is one of the best in the nation.
I am involved in quite a plethora of activities, so I am either busy around campus or getting work done. I spend a lot of my time in my residence hall and our lounge.
ASU is the only college in Phoenix, so when you are looking for opportunities to get involved off-campus, there is less competition than normal cities. However, doing fun things downtown is a rarity. Partying is prevalent.
There is rumor that they might ban bikes and skateboards next year.
One experience I will always remember is when I had to give a lecture in my Philosophy 101 class for an Honors Contract. It was one of the best classes that I think I will ever take.
The best thing about ASU is the student body. I LOVE how many students attend ASU. It might seem over whelming to some people but once you step on the campus, you can finally understand that it's actually calm and peaceful. Walking to class is like walking around a hotel resort; it's absolutely gorgeous. One of the things I would change, if it were possible, would be how hot it is in August. I'm all the way from New Jersey so I'm used to much milder summers and it definitely took a lot of getting used too. Most people back home have a negative reaction about the school. All they know is the stereotypes they have heard like ASU being a party school. They don't know how much our campus has changed since President Crow. The teachers and quality of education keeps getting better . Most of my time spent on campus is probably in lecture halls or hanging out in the MU. The MU is a really cool place to be because you're around all student life and food, what can get better than that! Seeing all the students in maroon and gold shirts around the MU on an average day reminds me of how much school spirit we have. This year I had student season tickets to the football games and they were so much fun! The games are a huge memory of my freshman year as well as the dining halls. I will never forget the first time I walked into the dining hall, I was so scared and had no idea what food was at each station. I definitely think living in the dorms and eating at the dining halls are a really fun part of freshman year and I definitely encourage it.
It's definitely a fun school. There are all sorts of events that happen day and night and lots of people. As an athlete and fitness junkie, my favorite place is the Student Recreation Center (SRC). Of course, the libraries are really great too (more often for naps).
I believe that ASU is an incredible school. I have learned a lot and although some professors may not always be the best at teaching, many are willing to help you outside of classes if you approach them.
The college is actually either the largest or second largest university in the country which can be somewhat overwhelming, but it is definitely an incredible experience to be part of such a large community. Everyone here is proud to be a Sun Devil!
My overall opinion of this school is not actually a specific opinion. I had a hard time adjusting coming from out of state because the weather is pretty extreme and the campus is huge. But over all there are alot of people to meet and the classes arent all huge. The campus life is nice and the dining hall is actually decent and even has a vegetarian section. Everything you need is very close and it helps make life easier. The weather in any month except july august septemeber is AMAZING. Looking at ASU now i feel like its a great school with many oppurtunities for internships and jobs. The social life is of course amazing too but can also be extreme. Overall ASU is great school with a beautiful campus as well as education.
Arizona State University has a beautiful campus. It is very big but everywhere you turn you can find interesting buildings or charming little corners. Another advantage is the weather, which allows students to bike and skateboard from building to building. Plus, it has one of the biggest campuses (I believe the second largest in the US) so there are always new people to meet and fun events to attend. You can never get bored at ASU.
Arizona State University is a phenomenal place to study. One of it's biggest advantages is its size. The school has absolutely everything available to you that you could want. The school is set up so that you can easily avoid the large crowds to study are hang out with small groups of friends, but can still enjoy the large crowds and school spirit at big events like football games. The campus is situated so that you can get to a number of great places to relax without much hassle, like Downtown Phoenix and Mill Avenue. The one thing that I wish I could change about ASU is the reputation that comes with the name. The university has incredible resources, including great faculty that are always willing to answer questions. The large university also means that there are an incredible number of great research opportunities. The University is very technologically oriented and you can get most of your questions answered online. One of the experiences that I will never forget is when I emailed the Michael Crow, the President of ASU, and he personally responded to my email to answer my questions. Overall, I love ASU and if I had the opportunity to complete my Undergraduate degree again at any university I wanted, I would still choose to attend ASU.
Arizona State University's Tempe campus is a great campus. It's beautiful and has great weather. There is a lot of diversity within the university which helps everyone and anyone feel welcome. The services the university provides for help in classes, career development and much more is very accommodating and accessible. There is a lot of free tutoring available and the teachers are usually very helpful if you use their office hours. There are help desks and centers for computer support, money questions, career questions, and whatever you need some assistance on. The university organizes free events throughout the semesters that help you get out of the dorms and out into the community to enjoy the company of other students, win money for school, get free items, take a break from studying, and just to participate in fun activities. I've attended a number of activities and there is always a great turn out with energetic people. Over all, ASU is a great place to be.
Arizona State is a school of opportunities. Its huge campus offers activities for every interest, groups for every interest, as well as educational opportunities galore. You can get lost in its numbers but study groups and individual instruction is always available. The professors experience is extraordinary and offers opportunity to meet some of the most interesting people in the country. There is always something going on on campus and off. Living without a car is fairly easy with grocery stores, restaurants, entertainment and more available in an easy walking distance.
The best thing about Arizona State University is the opportunities that come along with it. ASU is really about giving students the opportunity to attend college. There are so many resources for students and help out there, to make college life easier. The only thing that I would change is more regulation. Sometimes I don't feel safe at my school and I rarely see security or police walking around to regulate that nothing bad is going on. ASU is open to the public so anybody can walk on campus, even at night-time. It is a large school, depending on which campus you attend of course. Furthermore, I wish ASU was one large campus rather than split into West, Downtown, Tempe, Polytechnic. It would be nice if it was a smaller campus and students were more unified rather than in cliques. What I dislike the most is the reaction I get when I tell people I go to ASU. I never get a congratulations for being a first generation college student, immediately people start asking about the parties. Oh do you party a lot? Is there a lot of parties? ASU is not all about parties. It is who you are with and what you make out of your experience at ASU. I personally spend most of my time at Hayden Library and the Memorial Union, where all the food is. Overall, I really enjoy Arizona State University and this school has many resources to help students. I will always remember it because of the new friendships I have gained. I am part of Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc. and it has been such a great experience and I have met so many new people and gained new friends. We have done so many community service events together and fun socials. Arizona State University has so many opportunities for students to make or join a club that really fits your interests so you can always feel part of ASU.
Being a sundevil is definitely something to be proud of here in Arizona, especially in Tempe! If you are looking for a big university with limiletless possibilities then this is the university for you. The campus is large and there are thousands of students, but you are given the tools to make a intimate and impactful experiencce through hundreds of different clubs and organizations. When it's football time there's not better place to be then in Lot 59 tailgating before the big game. The atmosphere here is really what college is about! The only real down side about coming here to ASU is the cost! Tuition is extemely high and the fees and anything but small, but if you have the funds, ASU is the college to attend.
ASU is what you make it and since I am extremely driven, I am making the most out of it. WP Carey is a great school to be a part of.
As a member of a student recruitment club, I am commonly asked this question. However, I was recently asked by a parent what I DIDN'T like about ASU; it was a lot harder for me to answer (I ended up saying how I hate coming to class sweaty after biking a mile to get to campus). Where I'm from, most kids end up going to the University of Arizona or the community college in town; however, I wake up every morning knowing I made the right decision in coming to ASU. The Tempe campus is like a miniature city within a city, and it's so welcoming. There are so many beautiful buildings, and each reflects the majors it houses in some way.
I have so many great things to say about ASU, but the thing I'm proudest of is the organization of the faculty and their willingness to help students. I have never walked away from an appointment with an advisor feeling like I wasn't helped or given the answers to my questions. Furthermore, the Undergraduate Admissions team hosts great events to show perspective students everything that ASU has to offer.
This is a huge school so having friends is difficult the first two years. The last two people are commonly in blocks, meaning the students all go to the same class all day together. So then it is easier to get to know people and make friends. I would personally complain about the cafeteria, some people love it while I have never had a good experience with their food. I love the fries and that is about it. There is a variety of food so that is a positive but you could simply go get food across the street with your school card.
The faculty as well as the students at ASU have helped me grow in so many ways. Although some may consider a larger school to be too much of a distraction and simply not as good as a smaller one, I have found that the size of ASU is one of the things that I like most. I have met such a wide variety of people and gained so much knowledge from each of them. I know students in many different focuses which has helped me many times. ASU has many resources which can be of great assistance however, in my opinion your fellow students can be your best resources.
ASU is a great school. There is over 1,000 clubs/ organizations on campus so there is something for everyone. If for some reason you are still unable to find something on campus that interest you the process of creating a new club is simple! Also, ASU has 4 campus across the phoenix area so it is accessible to students living on various sides of town.
It is a large school, but that enables you to take a wide variety of classes at any imaginable class time and to participate in plenty of extracurricular activities. The specialized colleges and huge size of the campus help to make it feel small. I had plenty of small-sized classes with people I knew well.
While in the military, I'd attended several colleges and universities across the country over the years. So, by comparison, my perspective on Arizona State is pretty well-rounded. In short, ASU is what YOU make of it. I went in with a positive attitude and found the campus welcoming, the instructors knowledgeable and the experience fulfilling. Both the campus and the surrounding community have everything a student would need to be successful before and after graduation. But like most institutions of higher learning, if you're looking for beer and bad grades - you'll find them both in excess. However... if your character leads you toward loftier goals, anything is possible at Arizona State University. Really.
I like ASU the way it is. I can identify with going there but it is so large now that its more of a type of community rather then a school. For me, I like not knowing anyone on campus and just going to class to get my stuff done. For those that want to get involved, there are tons of organizations to do so with.
One thing I hate are those preachers on campus who shout fire and hell to everyone walking past. If you want to be a Christian then fine, but don't start shouting to random individuals as they are trying to go to school to better themselves. This and some of the protests that go on around campus are annoying to walk through.
The only big school pride I see is around football season and then it is only around 15 percent of the student body who get into it. However, that 15 percent is a very boisterous crowd so it makes it seem like football is everyone's dream.
It's like its own city made up of random people from around the world. I felt lost in a sea of meaninglessness as my identity of being somewhat unique to a particular group was sweeped away by a sense of having no significance, to anyone, including the entire staff which has no problem seeing my ability to register for classes be hampered by the waiting time of sifting through the incredible huge pool of other students. To compensete, I saw many students begin to make attempts to reform their identity by doing different things like join clubs, become an A student, etc. Unfortunately, the majority of students seemed to deny their insecurity and found their way lost in the mix of other confused students who wish to re-experience their highschool lives of permiscuous sex and heavy drinking. This leads to an extremely large problem with rationalized alcoholism and disease spreading, and most students don't seem to get out of the worst destructive habits until their 2-3 year. At this time, they will have realized by some negative consequence (like parents cut off money or dui or school probation) that something inside of them has to steer the boat. For these kids, the future is bleek, but there are many ASU students who came to ASU for their elite programs (like sports, law, business) who are serious and responsible for their futures, and they seem to have a way to get through ASU ok.
crazy fun town and nightlife, beautiful men and women, fun in the sun, but also (if you put in the effort) you can get this amazing education. The honors college is one of the best I've heard about... the Human Event classes will change your life, literally. I've made some great contacts for the future, and I think that I have been more than prepared to succeed after I graduate
I spent most of my time in my college building.
