    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.

What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • ASU is spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, ASU describes itself as "one university in many places." ASU's Tempe campus is located in urban downtown Tempe, Arizona, about eight miles east of downtown Phoenix. The West campus sits on 250 acres in a suburban area of northwest Phoenix. The 600-acre Polytechnic campus is located 33 miles southeast of downtown Phoenix and sits on the former Williams Air Force Base. The newest of ASU's four campuses, the Downtown Phoenix campus was established in 2006 on the north side of Downtown Phoenix. The campus has an urban design, with several large modern academic buildings intermingled with commercial and retail office buildings.

What are the school's academic highlights?
1 Answer
  • ASU offers over 250 majors to undergraduate students, and more than 100 graduate programs. ASU's School of Sustainability, which began enrolling students in 2008, is the first school in the United States dedicated to exploring the principles of sustainability, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in the subject. The 2016 U.S. News & World Report ranked ASU 62nd among public universities. The student-faculty ratio at ASU’s main campus is 22:1 with 40.7 percent of its classes with fewer than 20 students. ASU has a 43 percent 4-year graduation rate. Sports and media studies, food industry management, tourism — these are just a few of the degrees offered at Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Others include more traditional programs like management, marketing, and finance. Whichever major you choose, you’ll be encouraged to rethink the nature of business, engage the world, and create a better future on a global scale. That’s what attracts more than 8,300 undergraduate students and 1,500 graduate students to the business school, making it one of the nation’s largest. But if you think a large student body means students feel like a guppy in a really big shark tank, think again. The school creates a close-knit community through small classes, team-based learning, and individualized attention. Remember that one time at Carey camp? All W. P. Carey students can say “yes” to that one. Everyone’s program starts at Carey camp where first-year students get together for an outdoor adventure in the cool pines of northern Arizona.
