State is a joke.
I am an out-of-state student
from Atlanta, Georgia. I applied to University of Alabama, University
of Mississippi, Georgia Southern University, and Arizona State University. I
was accepted into all of these schools yet I chose
Arizona State because of my desire to change environments (Southeast
to Southwest). As soon as I arrived in Tempe, I
realized just exactly what I was in for.
the students. ASU is comprised of kids from mostly rich,
suburban areas in California, Wisconsin, New Jersey, and every other
state where its really cold. Most of the students picked
ASU because of the climate, not the academics. That says
a lot about the population at ASU. Every ASU student
cuts off the sleeves of their shirts, wears gel in
their hair, talks about how much their cars are back
at home (that their daddy's bought them for their 18th
b-day), and most agree that ASU is “the number one
party school in the nation.” The majority of ASU students
say “brah,” “hella,” and “gnarly.” If Spiccoli from Fast Times
at Ridgemont High graduated, his first choice would be ASU.
The girls here bring nothing to the table except fake
boobs, a slur of make-up, and a blowjob. Trying to
find something to build a conversation on with one of
these girls is like trying to play a jazz concert
with Bob Dole. I had a girl ask me last
week, completely serious, “Is Georgia in Atlanta, or is Atlanta
The most plastic and unintelligent douche-bags who
dominated high school flock to Arizona State. The ridiculously hot
girls came to ASU just to be wooed by guys
who wear almost (if not more) makeup and have almost
(if not less) of a brain.
The social life at
ASU is pathetic. Where do I even start? The fraternity
houses are 1 story pieces of shit that are disgusting.
If you decide to go to one of these lame
frat party's, expect to stand outside with about 70 other
people who are trying to get in. They literally have
a list that you have to be on in order
to get in. If you don't want to wait on
the list, you can always bring 9 girls with you
to be allowed in. However, after you bring the 9
girls, don't be surprised if Joe Frat comes up to
you and asks you to leave. Heâ€™ll let the ladies
Want to drink at the bars? Think again.
The bars in Tempe are incredibly strict. I've seen on
a number of occasions, people who are visibly well over
21, getting their ID's scanned, shined with a black light,
and shown to Tempe police before being let in. This
is across the board with any store that sells alcohol
in the Phoenix/Mesa area. Well drinking is hard to do,
what about smoking a little pot?
Nope. In Arizona, possession
of marijuana is a FELONY. Thatâ€™s right, if you and
your friends are caught smoking a joint, expect to spend
close to 5 days in jail, pay upwards of 5000
dollars in fines, and never have the ability to work
a job that makes more than 20,000 dollars a year.
This isn't your typical west-coast relaxed marijuana policy that you
might find at UCSB or University of Colorado.
also has a huge influx of meth-addicts. If you go
anywhere in downtown Tempe (Mill Ave.) expect to be hassled
by several meth heads for change. Theyâ€™re really pleasant when
youâ€™re walking home alone at night.
at ASU are a joke. Most of the classes at
ASU are hybrid courses which means that you will have
several assignments and tests online. When not dealing with a
shitty wireless internet connection EVERYWHERE on campus, have fun trying
to pay attention in a class of 300-500 students. The
departments at ASU are mediocre with exception to the Journalism
school and the Industrial Design school.
The most repulsive trait
that ASU has is their admissions policy. The current headmaster
at ASU has decided to let 95% of applicants in
to the university. This is higher than any other major
university in the country. His idea is to let everyone
into the university, but make it hard to actually stay
enrolled in the university. You have a 2 year grace
period to earn the grades you need to transfer into
the college of your choice or you get the boot.
Due to this policy, the population at ASU has skyrocketed
to 60,000 students. Showing an employer an ASU degree is
equivalent to showing them a GED. Everyone gets into ASU
so in the employer's mind, they have to be thinking...
“An ASU degree, who DOESN'T have an ASU degree?"
costs a shit load of money to come here too.
(16-18,000 dollars per semester for freshman students without an academic/sports
I am from the southeast and I am telling
EVERYONE who lives in the southeast to not come to
this school. It is completely different and you will spend
a week trying to figure out what some of these
kids are even saying. You will also need to start
spending all of your money on different hair products, Abercrombie
& Fitch cologne, and a spray-tan membership. You might want
to pick up a sickin' new skateboard and a hella
good pair of oakleys to wear inside and at night.
If you want to spend the best years of your
life with Jessica Simpson and the guy from “My New
Haircut” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JMOh-cul6M) then ASU is YOUR school.
If you know
what a college town is (Amherst, Athens, Charleston, Charlottesville, Boulder
etc.), you care more about your future than your new
iPhone, and you want to meet people who have a
general understanding and passion for something other than whatâ€™s going
on in the newest season of The OC, then look
I am transferring at the end of the
semester back to Georgia. The only good thing that has
happened so far at this school was watching the Sun
Devils get shit on by the Georgia Bulldogs back in
late September. Go Dawgs!
