Study hard and takeQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Study hard and take the initiative. At a large research university you have to be 100% invested in what you get out of your education. This includes communicating with your professors and not expecting them to come to you if you have a problem.

Question
Engineering Program - The engineering program has greatBrightEngineering Department
Engineering Program - The engineering program has great ratings. Of course the first semester or two of classes you take are generic and can be extremely boring. It's a nice mix though to take your normal classes with other majors however. They really try to get you involved in the engineering moment from the moment you get to campus, sort of like a cult. E2 Camp for engineers absolutely sucks, but if you are out of state and don't know many people at ASU I'd recommend going, easy way to make friends and hopefully some attractive chicks.Social Life - If your a girl( and not horribly ugly), sorority or not, you will find invites to parties here beyond plentiful. If your a guy, the first few weeks you can get in to frat parties and such, either by showing up with a lot of girls or meeting some frat dudes before hand. After rush though expect these invites to be gone forever, unless you rush you will not be welcome by the frats anymore regardless of how many girls you bring. Try to make friends in the off campus apartments(especially the hub, district, 922 Place and Vista) a lot of smaller parties and "kick backs" occur here. Off campus house parties are popular as well, but finding them is semi-exclusive unless you know the hosts. To sum it up: If you want parties on a weekend basis as a guy, rush a frat. For girls, being in a sorority is just basically ensuring you will never go partyless, even though everyone will invite you anyway. I'm not 21 so I can't comment on Mill Ave. but many say it's a very fun time. You can get away with a lot in dorms (DONT PLAY LOUD MUSIC). Try not to get an MIC the first week either.

Question
In many ways, the successful ASU experience isSuper BrilliantSocial Work
In many ways, the successful ASU experience is a reflection of an individual?s confidence, efforts, and assertiveness. One gets what one goes after. It is much like life. If you sit back and want everything spoon fed to you then this is not the right university for you and maybe a trade or vocational school is something you should consider. If your spirit is not entrepreneurial and you want to go work every day and be told exactly what to do, then ASU is not the right university for you. However, if you are willing to think creatively, standup, and speak out, then this might be the right place for you. To be successful one needs to learn to be a responsible adult and take ownership of each situation that is presented both on and off campus. Excuses don?t work in life and they don?t work at a major university. For me, it is a wonderful school in most every way.
