Question
The student body at ASU is very interesting.Quite BrightEducation
The student body at ASU is very interesting. There are about four groups of people.
1. Small Towners; all from the same place and only really associate with other small towners. Have found them to be a bit close minded to anyone not like them.

2. Rich Greeks; Most are from the rich suburbs of Charlotte. Some are very nice and sweet, others almost insufferable. Greek life is 6% at ASU yet somehow it feels like 50%. I suppose it's because they travel in packs.

3. Hippies/Alternative; This group absolutely loves to be "different." Most are art/music majors and spend most of their day playing music, slacklining (tightrope walking) and getting high.

4. The rest of us. I can be hard to find these people, but with a little work it is very rewarding
OTHER RANDOM TIPS/THOUGHTS:

- Don't hesitate to do outdoorsie things. I didn't take advantage of the great surroundings until spring and really regret it.

- There are some pretty close minded people who have no problem using words like n***** or f*****. "That's so gay!" is still funny here apparently.

- Little to no racial diversity
- Don't distress if you get one of the older, not-very-nice dorms. I was put in Coltrane which was meant to house one person per room and has no air conditioning. However, the crappy rooms meant we hung out in the lobby and I made many of my friends there.

- Utilize safe ride
- Getting to parties is very hard as there is no greek row and you cannot walk to house parties. "Beepers" are random students who will ferry you to a party for two bucks. You can normally find a phone number on facebook.

- Go down suicide hill (below the LLC, above the music building) when it snows.- Boone is breathtakingly beautiful with many great hiking spots.

Question
Completely disregarding the fact that 75% of myQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Completely disregarding the fact that 75% of my friends from high school all went to the same different college, I would come here again given the choice. The campus is beautiful, the staff is friendly, and the academics are challenging (yet fair). The dorms are okay, about the size of a standard prison cell (pretty normal for dorms anywhere). Dorms on the East Side of campus, which I'm on, are a bit better than the ones on the West Side. The food in Central Dining Hall is good, but, like most places, you'll get tired of the same food over and over. Your advisors and people everywhere are always willing to help. The only real problem is is finding something to do. Boone is a small town, so there's not a whole lot going on unless you really like to party... I don't. I spend most of my weekdays in my dorm, but that doesn't mean there's NOTHING to do. There's some student organizations, sports groups, etc. Overall, good school.
