Life at ASU’s West campus | Arizona State University

What I love about West campus is the family. Everybody who comes here, we’re all accumulated into this wonderful family that we have here. What I like to say is “a private school feel with the large university opportunity.” I’m involved as well as I live on campus. The dorms are pretty big. I get my own room. I get my own closet and bathroom. There’s so much to do. There’s always activities around. I joined some clubs and then we went to Thai food, Mexican food … The opportunities here are endless. The professors here want you to do research for them. Especially if you’re able to reach out to the faculty that you have classes with, you know, you can definitely get in the door with them. Class sizes are great. I don’t think it could be really any better. They’re even smaller than they were in high school. I can actually expect to talk to the teacher right after class. Being in the Barrett Honors College, I meet people who have different beliefs and different opinions and we share that with one another. When I talk about military experience people like to hear my stories. We’re all laid back. Really, really open and accepting. I just love that I get to come here, and it’s peaceful and it’s rejuvenating and I’m doing really well in my classes, and then I get to take the shuttle and go to Tempe and go to football games and be a part of this bigger community that is ASU and all the fun that happens.
