ASU is a great place to go if you are journalism major. There are a lot of ways to get involved with the program. You just have to grit your teeth through Dr. Godfrey’s horrible intro class! It is only at 8:40 am on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Since the campus is so large there are a lot of people who come here for career fairs and it is easier to network in your desired field.

The Greek life here is pretty poor in comparison to other campuses I’ve been to. The majority of Frats and all of Sororities live in the Adelphi Commons which is a row of buildings whose inside are like shitty dorms and they don’t allow drinking. I rushed a sorority and thought that is was a complete waste of my time and money it is roughly $800 a semester to pay for parties that aren’t that great and you have to put up with some pretty catty girls. If you want to go Greek I will give you the run down. The most highly regarded sorority on campus is Theta. The rest are as follows 2) AXO, 3) Alpha Phi, 4) Delta Gamma and Pi Phi, 5) Chi Omega and Gamma Phi, 6) Delta Zeta, 7) Alpha Delta Pi.

Note to the girls- this campus is mainly female, and the guys that are here are well… either extremely good looking from spending WAY to much time on their hair, tanning, and carefully picking out an outfit or they are little fake bake trolls trying to be like the other guys. I think you will find a majority of the second. There is the occasional guy that is actually here to study but it is a rare occurrence. All in all my experience has been a lot of fun. There is a group for everyone down here because the school’s population is SO large. Since you are near a big city there is always something to do and the weather here is gorgeous!!!!

ASU is awesome! Its in a big city with lots of places to go. Tempe/Scottsdale is full of upscale bars, trendy sushi restaurants, clubs, etc. Tempe is your average college town...most people that live there go to ASU. Scottsdale is more upscale, has a ton of resorts and classy places. Another surrounding area, Chandler, is also upscale and extremely nice. I cannot say enough about the asthetics both of the campus and the city. It is amazing...palm trees, mountains, and the sun shines just about every day. Plus you can't beat 75 degree weather in the middle of January! ASU students love to party...If you come here you better bring a good fake ID because the bars here are the center of the social scene. Greek life is great too...its an awesome way to get involved and meet people. Sororities and Fraternities here are very balanced and aren't very competetive with one another, so thats always a good thing. Another awesome things about ASU is the fact that its only about a 3 hour drive to Las Vegas, 4 hours to Los Angeles, 5 hours to San Diego, 2 hours to Tucson, and 3 hours to Mexico. Road trips to these places are very popular and soo much fun! There are also hundreds of clubs and organizations to get involved in and they always have tables set up outside the Memorial Union which holds a food court, Einsteins Bagels, Jamba Juice, gift shop, market, study rooms, pool tables, a bowling alley, and a Starbucks, all right in the middle of campus! What more could you want? Classes aren't terribly hard, and I've heard that Career Services is extremely helpful in helping you find a job when you graduate. One of the great things about being in a large Metropolitian area is that there are always recruiters from major companies on campus! It also makes it easier to network with people in different companies. When you graduate, who you know will be way more important than what you know or what you studied in college, so always remember that~and don't take college too seriously...live it up...these are the best years of your life!!!

I am from a Naperville Illinois a suburb of Chicago. I have visited friends at many schools through out the midwest and let me tell you none of them even come close to topping ASU.

The socail life is awsome. The girls are amazingly good looking. You have Mill Ave. in downtown Tempe which is packed with bars and restaurants. Just north of campus is Scotsdale a beatiful resort town filled with bars and restaurants. In the spring time you have spring training which is a blast. Its the only time you can actually see a Cubs game for 5 bucks. Best of all you see palm tress everday. Freshman year when I flew back home for Chirstmas break I told my parents I feel like I am coming back from a vacation.

As far as education goes the busniss school is awsome and engineering is good as well. It's a Pac 10 school so it has to be a decent school. I mean who hasn't heard of ASU? If you have average smarts like myself you couldn't choose a better school academicly. Look at it this way worste case senerio you hate every aspect of the school (which i highly doubt) hey its warm and sunny everyday you cant beat it.
