a high school senior or transfer student, it can be
difficult to find qualities that differentiate colleges from one another
in order to make a decision. Therefore I will
try to point out the qualities that separate ASU from
1) It is one of the largest schools
in the country, which is actually a good thing.
At a school this big you probably expect it to
have classes with hundreds of students in them but really
there are not very many. Most of the classes I
have had have been around 20 or 30 students.
The fact that the campus is so large makes it
easier to meet more people plus their are soo many
organizations you can join.
2) Students from all
over the country come to ASU. It is not
like any other state school where 95% of the students
are from that state. At ASU its about 60%
in state, 40% out state. I thought it was
really cool coming here and meeting so many other students
from different parts of the country.
3) Its in a
big city. The nice thing about ASU is that
it is located in a college town (Tempe) that centers
around the University but its not out in the middle
of nowhere, it is right outside of Phoenix, one of
the largest cities in the country. Trust me you
will never be bored here. There is always something to
do and you will find many opportunities for career networking.
4) LOCATION! You simply cannot beat the beauty
and the weather of Arizona... Its amazing. Also, you
are close enough to drive to California, Las Vegas, and
Mexico. What more could you possibly want?
life. Since the school is so big, there are
alot of sororities to choose from which will make it
easier for you to find a group that you fit
in well with. Rush here is competetive but not
nearly as cutthroat as some of the southern schools.
Some of our best sororities are Alpha Phi, Theta, Alpha
Chi Omega, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Kappa Delta, Delta Gamma, and
Pi Phi. Some of the most popular fraternities here are
Phi Psi, Sigma Chi, Pike, and Delta Sigma Pi.
All of these sororities/fraternities are great but there are several
other wonderful houses on campus as well. I highly
reccomend joining one because it is ALOT of fun and
a great way to meet people.
6) Mill Avenue...A strip
of trendy bars, shops, and restaurants right by campus.
Its awesome. There are also some really great bars
and clubs in scottsdale too which is right next to
Tempe. Trust me, you are never bored here on
a Friday or Saturday night. Never a shortage of
athletic events either. Outside of Sun Devil sports there are
the Arizona Cardinals (who play on campus in Sun Devil
Stadium!) Phoenix Suns (currently the number 1 basketball team!)and spring
training for major league baseball is held here as well.
Also, if you like to play golf, than ASU
will be HEAVEN for you.
I hope this has
helped you to see some of the great things that
Arizona State University has to offer and hopefully afer reading
this you want to come here!! Go SUN DEVILS!
