Hi everyone. New to the group. My daughter will be a freshman this year and staying at the DT campus. We are from Dartmouth, MA. Thank you to all the parents posting their wisdom. It is much appreciated.
hi Sheila, check the UPS store @ ASU I think that they have that service. Good luck!
Hi folks! My daughter will be moving into the downtown campus in Aug. We will be driving her down from Northern California. We are considering getting her one of the Value Linen Paks from ASU. One question to all the 'experienced' parents on this site is: Is there any way that we can have this shippped to Taylor Place before we get there so it's waiting for us when we move her in?? We would rather not have to lug it with us on the looooong drive down!!
Hi Laura, it just started getting ridiculously hot. We have lived her a few years now and still have not quite adjusted. Carry a water bottle in your hand bag. I find that wearing flowy dresses keeps me coolest and avoid tennis shoes. Always carry a sweater though because the buildings are absolutely freezing. We attended the orientation in May and my lips were just about blue. Just part of the charm I guess. The sheraton is close to the campus but may feel like a longer walk if you are not used to the heat. You may want to bring an unbrella if you will be doing a lot of walking. Welcome to Arizona :)
Good Afternoon Laura,
The weather during that time will be averaging 100. As far as safety the Light Rail is very safe and our students use it on a regular/daily basis.
Staying at the Sheraton is great as it is centrally located and will put you in walking distance of several dining options,including those in the Arizona Center and City Scape.
Ms.Zamora, i think the temperature hit 101 this past few days. So it should be about the same during your visit. My son just finished his freshman year at taylor place downtown and he had no problem with public transportation. He used the light rail system to go to band practice and games in tempe. He used light rail when he needed to go to target, j.c.penney, etc. Tempe has more choices to eat out i think. Not to worry. Feel free to ask at any time.
Hello all- My son will be attending the Walter Cronkite school this coming fall 2013. We are from the Roseville/Sacramento area and have never had the chance to visit Phoenix.
We will be flying out for his orientation on June 8th and were wondering how hot does it normally get around that time. I’m starting to get a little concerned about our stay there. We will be staying at the Sheraton in D.T. and will not be renting a car during our 4 day stay. How safe is public transportation in Phoenix? Will it be too hot to walk to near by restaurants, attractions, etc.? I’m hoping for some advice?
