My experience at ASU was an experience like no other. My course and professors all inspired me to find my passion. I changed my major after the first semester; which allowed me to explore the different career paths before I chose my current career goal. ASU truly opened my eyes to a lot of wonderful opportunities. I am taking my experiences working alongside my peers in the school newspaper "State Press" and student outreach "Programming and Activities Board" to learn valuable work ethics for future career skills. As a medical studies major, I still find it important to surround myself with other activities and involvements that are not related to my major. Therefore, the school paper gives me sense of the journalism world and the PAB allows me to explore skills in marketing and event planning. Overall, my experience at ASU change my life and improved my skills that pertains to social, professional, and personal life skills. Thank you ASU for everything!

If you enjoy being surrounded by a large, diverse, group of people, then ASU is for you! The campus is huge, so it requires a lot of walking, but what's wrong with some exercise? It's also intriguing to see how people will transport themselves to class - you'd be surprised. If you're an epicure, you'll enjoy the numerous amounts of dining options in the vicinity of the campus. The night-life isn't too bad once you turn 21, but there's Old Town Scottsdale for that. The area of where the campus is located isn't the best (a lot of homeless people), but you still feel safe on campus. The apartments nearby campus are pretty pricey, but I prefer them over the dorms. Some dorms are super nice, while others are horrible. If ASU could change something, it should be upgrading all of the dorms, not just a couple. The housing situation is also based on your major, which sucks. Other than that, I still love ASU!
I attended ASU under a scholarship for a summer course in Psychology. Also included in this four week program were multiple tours to various aspects in the college, heavily focused on their amazing STEM related museums, study areas, and classes. The teacher was wonderful to be around and taught the course very well, and the mentors who accompanied us were friendly, outgoing, and kind. The campus is perfect for those looking for a large college lifestyle, because the Tempe campus is massive. There are also various things to do in Tempe, which is great for extroverts and the adventurous types. The students are pleasant to be around, and the food is great! I would highly recommend ASU's Tempe campus.
