It is a smaller campus compared to Tempe, but you can still get that college experience if you choose to. ASU has lots of different clubs and organizations across all four campuses and Poly has a lot to get involved in. There are on-campus jobs that can help you financially. The professional staff are very friendly and help you grow as an adult. The professors at the Polytechnic campus always try to improve and help the students they are teaching. ASU is also very diverse and I love learning about new things!

From my year-long experience with the polytechnic campus, I can say that I enjoyed my time here. I would definitely classify this as a good spot for students who enjoy a quiet campus in the suburban area of a large city. I thought that the academics were good, though I ultimately decided to transfer to seek more academic rigor. I should point out that students without vehicles may have an issue with the area since it would take about 15-20 minutes to walk to the nearest shopping area. I thought the dorms were pretty decent. I had an A/C unit in my room that I could control and a full-kitchen that I shared with a suite mate. The campus is safe and I would take late-night strolls without having to worry. The only thing I had to look out for were a pair of skunks that live on campus.
