10 Questions Everyone Asks Me About Arizona State University

We've got quite a reputation and it's coming to bite us in the butt.

10 Questions Everyone Asks Me About Arizona State University

As one of largest public universities in the United States with a notoriety for being a party school, you are sure to draw up a reputation and get asked questions about what it is like to be a fellow Sun Devil. Here are some of the things I have been asked throughout my time here.

1. What are the parties like?

What do you mean? As a dry campus, I wouldn't know. Of course not! That's preposterous.

2. Greek life is wild, huh?

It's not like the movies.

3. So, your school is in the middle of a desert?

Technically, yes, but it's a developed city. It's not like we have roads, buildings, freeways, infrastructure, air conditioning? We're not living in underground huts with the snakes, people.

4. It's just really hot, right?

Yup, that's how it usually is. We're not burning alive or anything, though.

5. Does it even rain? Snow? Anything?

There are only two types of weather in our city - dry heat and monsoon season. The craziest things we experience are haboobs but that's about it.

6. Are there cacti, like, everywhere?

Yup, you can't even walk down the street without getting pricked. Just kidding!

7. Do you go to Mexico for spring break?

Not with my parents!

8. Is everybody a Republican?

Eh, depends on where you go.

9. Do you know a plug?

Chances are, you do, but you might not even know it. It might be Chad from Alpha Tau Phi or Lindy in your Chemistry lab - hell, it might even be your Community Assistant.

But, we are a smoke-free campus and drugs are kind of illegal, so do with that what you will.

10. U of A or ASU?

Let's not bring up that rivalry...

All in all, being an Arizona native with a flair for the Sun Devil lifestyle, I've found my home here on Tempe campus. Pitchforks up!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
