Surrounding Area Activities:
Personally being from this part of Arizona, a cool feature next to ASU campus is A-mountain. Its a bit of a
trail hike upward but the view of the big A symbol is pretty cool to look at.
There are also several indoor and outdoor shopping malls on college Blvd. That are in within walking
distance of other tourist attractions. (Not that you would want to walk in the heat!)
If you like sports you can watch men and women's sports at the Wells Fargo Arena. AS well as at Phoenix
Munipal stadium.

Campus life:


Living expenses:
Living on campus for underclassmen isnt a requirement but is heavily
suggested. ASU believes that living on campus your first years is curtail to
learning and passing all of your classes.
If I attend this college I probably wont want to live on campus and would try
to find student housing off campus but close by.
