Describes the faculty as:
Most people have heard by now about the party scene here. I am not sure how they judge that, but there is just as much partying going on at just about every college. Things are going downhill right now though. The greek system, which accounts for a lot of partying traditionally, is almost dead, and has been dying for years at ASU.
Cons:—- Horrible greek system. No one quite knows the exact reason, but there are a lot of contributing factors. For one, the sororities cannot have houses by law - they all live in one little complex that resembles the dorms. Second, the fraternities have not built new houses in decades, and do almost no maintenance. Over the years just about every strong house has been kicked off campus. Houses have been condemned for asbestos, and others have been torn down because the fraternities were never coming back. Then there are the students that make up the greek system here. ASU has always had a very small percentage of greeks. For the fraternities, that percentage is composed almost entirely of tools that weren't cool in high school and desperately need some sort of group to be involved in. They have no social sense at all, and don't know how to treat women. As a result, the frat guys here embody all of the stereotypes you have ever heard. They're sloppy, dirty, fat, ugly, stupid, and they mistreat the women. They love drugs (cocaine especially), and are totally open about it. They offer the drugs to girls, and have no sense of chivalry. Then there are the sorority girls. Since ASU's greek system has been so bad for so long, very few quality girls even consider it to begin with. As a result, the sororities are full of raging alcoholic girls ("We drink 8 nights a week!") who are shady and backstabbing. And to top it all off, they aren't even hot! Even the top houses are full of girls who appear to be way past their prime (if they had one). There's three types of girls - the ones that are "almost hot", the ones that never were hot, and the butterfaced ones that look good from 50 feet away. The lack of quality in the sorority girls here is no surprise - why would any classy girls join a sorority here when they have no houses, zero support from the univeristy, and nothing but toolshed fraternity guys to have socials/mixers with? Take it from me - the greeks DO NOT run ASU. ALl of the quality girls, all of the girls that are actually hot, are NOT greek and most are against it.
Overall, when considering ASU you need to decide what you are looking for in a University. If you're another douchebag who wasn't cool in high school and read that ASU is a "party school" with "hot girls" - do us all a favor and look elsewhere.
|Hey there, I'm an international student consdering ASU and after reading your review I gotta say it give me a lot more insights on what life's gonna be like there. I still got some questions though I hope you can help me out with.
Which dorm do you recommend? I'm looking for a single room, and of course, looking forward to see the prettier girls on campus :P I heard a lot of horror stories about Manzanita though (
14 floors of whores???).
Is it true that even international students get caught up with the partying? Sounds fun, kinda…(if its true) as I'm an international student and I know 1st hand that most of us are just not very social. As long as its not too much that is.
Do you happen to know if engineering and architecture school are any good? Also what about the workload? I used to go to WSU and they give tons of them, I like challenges but not in quantity.
Also, do you think ASU is gonna be a good place for a forreigner like me? I'm pretty serious about studying but like to party just like everyone else, so parties and pretty girls are a big plus. I hope this is the right choice. Yeah I'm that shallow lol.
Thanks for your help.
|Come on people, grow up! There are 20K to 60K students at most public universities. If you cannot find a group in which you fit, you might want to look in the mirror. Don't stereotype fraternities and sororities unless they are your own. The school has many great academic programs. No school that I am aware has excess housing. Hmm… look at your focus, "parties and pretty girls".. and you listed parties as a positive but gave the school a C in social life…|
