Arizona State University - West Campus Reviews

Arizona State University is great for someone looking for a fun and affordable college. There are plenty of resources and help if you know where to look. The school provides transportation options so you can get from one campus to another if need be. The West campus is small but it is a nice one and it is not overwhelming when looking for classes and buildings. There are a lot of events that occur on campus so it is easy to get involved and there is a library and gym so that you can study and use the school computers and you can exercise throughout the week. The good thing is: most of the things I have said are free like the gym, library, and shuttles. Overall, a great university!

My experience with this campus has been minimal, and I have taken most classes at Tempe due to commute. The university itself was very difficult for me to feel apart of, as I could not afford to live on campus. I pay a multitude for parking every week, and have gotten two tickets being 2 minutes past the meter time when not making it back to my car due to a long lecture. There is little to no parking for commuters, and I have an extremely hard time navigating it. I haven't made many friends or often feel as if the professors care for their students personally, I would say that I have loved maybe one of my professors each semester. I think that the best part about ASU is the way the campus looks and the administration. I admire Michael Crow and how he handled the pandemic and continuously releases updates, making it clear that he cares for his students. The second star is to recognize the very few good professors I have had who have reached out to me, a shy quiet student, personally.
I am very proud to have completed my BA degree through ASU-West. The campus is much smaller than their main Tempe location and that is what initially drew me in. Along with this beautiful campus, my all of my professors were extremely knowledgable, compassionate, and always willing to assist a student in need or took time out of their day to make sure we (the students) were succeeding.I would have personally liked to see more majors be offered at this specific campus, but the academics certainly challenge the students to think outside the box. Overall, from the campus to the academics and student life, I felt thoroughly prepared and confident to enter the world and make something of myself.
