German, Class of 2013

The culture is different dependent on the type of student you want to be. ASU has a bad "party" reputation. However, I wouldn't describe the all the students or the entire student body culture that way. The people I spent time with were invested students who were passionate about their field of study. It was an accepting culture as they were happy to hear what other students were learning.

Engineering requires labs. All of the upper division classes required hands on lab experiences. The dorms were adequate, but since most students live off campus, they were a small part of the school. The campus is very large. Walking across campus is actually difficult. Walking from the parking lot to the campus is also hard. I used a bicycle for part of the time, and a motorcycle the rest.
