What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Do not be afraid. College is the place where one can easily come out of their shell. Especially at a diverse school, such as ASU, no on is here to judge. Be true to yourself, and you will fit right now. Moreover, go to as many school functions as possible. You will not regret it. As far as classes go, they are not impossible, you just have to keep focus and apply yourself. Don't slack off! It will come back to haunt you, especially at the end of the semester.
Sam from Tempe, AZ
I would recommend living on campus until you are familiar with the school, and have made some friends. The dorms are overall very clean and fun to live in, my roommate is my best friend! The dorms also have their own study tools, and get-togethers to help students meet new people.
Christianna from Tucson, AZ
Apply early to try for automatic scholarships based on your ACT/SAT score. Bring a bike or board if you plan on having classes at opposite sides of campus. And get used to the heat, because it's Arizona and it doesn't cool down here until November through April. Visit campus at least once because you don't see how big and amazing it is until you do.

Make sure to make friends within your major and to befriend your advisers, they will help you the most. Find a nice place on campus that you can go to in between classes and study. sometimes the library, computing commons, and Memorial Union are jammed all at once. Usually there are open classrooms. Try sitting in on a large lecture class if you do not have a lot to do, I did, and picked up quite a bit of knowledge on latin
Alexandra from Mesa, AZ
Bring sunglasses! They help blocking the strong AZ sun out of your eyes. Always carry a water bottle when walking to and from classes on campus. Get a little early to big lecture classes, like 10 minutes, so you get a good seat, or sometimes a seat at all. I suggest planning you classes out so that you’re done by 3pm. Try not to schedule your classes with blocks more than an hour in between. It’s better to get your classes done in a set time frame. Schedule your classes very early (They fill up fast).
Apply as soon as you can for financial aid because the scholarships are usually available to the early-birds. As the saying goes, “the early bird gets the worm”
Tiana from Phoenix, AZ
An important aspect prospective students often ignore is location. For example, ASU is in the heart of Phoenix, which allows for many opportunities outside of the college.
Joseph from Henderson, NV
The application process is extremely easy - just send them a high school transcript and a college transcript if you're a transfer student. The application process took me about 15 minutes. The Admissions office is very organized, and my application was processed in about a week (and that was near Christmas). Their ecollege and MyASU center makes keeping track of everything incredibly easy.
Rachel from Tempe, AZ
Stay focused and don't be afraid to ask for help when you feel like you are falling behind. It will only get worse if you don't seek help. Be open to new things and get involved!
Jacquelyn from Santa Clara, CA
Prospective Students take the following advice; do well on your SATS and ACTS for scholarships are not very hard to get at ASU, visit the campus, look into your majors program ( if no major has been decided pick a few you may enjoy and look into those), and live on campus!
Joel from Chandler, AZ
Explore and try new things. Don't fall back into old habits. This is college, and it's the time to find yourself and try new things. Stay true to your beliefs and morals, but don't be afraid to get out there.
