Student & Graduate Reviews (197)
ASU has a terrible reputation. However, it truly does not deserve it, at least not anymore. I went to ASU originally because they offered me the best financial aid package. I do not regret it one bit. From the start ASU works to engage students on every aspect campus life. They put a lot of effort into making students feel like the campus is a lot smaller than it is by encouraging students to join clubs and get involved. This effort was the first stand out aspect and one that continued with me as I moved through various leadership roles at ASU as result. The classes are what you make of them. If you choose to pursue a rigorous academic schedule, you can find it here. The professors are generally wonderful and want to help students whether it be regarding classwork or career choices. I had never had a professor tell me that they could not help me. There are also a lot of interesting research opportunities. The number 1 in innovation became a bit of a meme, but it is true. ASU is on the cutting edge of everything from biomedical to politics. If I could do it again, I would.
I love ASU online. I transferred from a school that I didn't even think my credits would transfer from, and ASU online has been the most amazing program for me. I work in Public Health in California, and just love the flexibility, and set up of this program. I have recommended it to several people looking to get their bachelors. I already want to get my masters from ASU.
I am a graduate of Arizona State University, where I earned a degree in English, a degree in Secondary Education, and a certificate in Philosophy, Literature, and Rhetoric. The education I received as an adult student who returned to school prepared me to pursue a career as a high school teacher. There was a diverse selection of courses both in person and online, allowing me to continue to work full time as well as pursue my degrees as a full time student. The faculty was knowledgeable and helpful when pursuing assistance or feedback. The only setback to the university is the cost. Of the three state schools in Arizona State University is the highest in tuition costs and fees. If a student is attending school without scholarships or grants the costs can quickly accumulate.
I studied at ASU for my undergrad. I enjoyed my experiences and I grew a lot in this time. I am currently pursing my Master's at ASU as well. I have enjoyed the rigor of my program as well as the opportunity to further hone my skill set and professional abilities. ASU is a great university to choose and the professors are dedicated to ensuring your success.
Attending ASU was such an amazing and valuable experience that I will always cherish. The instructors and courses available really added to the overall positive experience as well as the diversity of the school. What I think is special about ASU is how innovative it is and the amount of students there are - you meet so many people from around the country/world and that helps you open your mind to other ideas. I had the fondest memories going to class and challenging myself. In my experience, the instructors and advisors were always available and eager to assist with almost everything. ASU is a great school!
Arizona State University has a diverse student body. It accepts students from multiple backgrounds, both international and domestic. The staff and faculty at the Hugh Downs School for Communication are knowledgeable in their field with a passion to teach. Whether it is teaching a specific topic a professor has researched or a course the program requires students to take, there is always an open door policy to have one on one interactions with the instructors. The university has a large campus with numerous amenities, both recreational and academic, to make it more comfortable for students living on campus. Likewise, students who commute are also offered the same services to help them thrive during their college career and adjust to post-secondary education. The Hugh Downs School's advisers are knowledgeable and extremely helpful when it comes to answering questions about staying on track for graduation. Overall, the institution offers a safe and friendly environment for students while still encouraging a level of professionalism and academic achievement.
The quality of education at Arizona State University is of the highest degree. As an undergraduate, there are numerous opportunities to get involved with research which is crucial if you want to progress towards an advanced degree in the field of psychology. I would advise anybody who is interested in studying psychology to seriously consider ASU.
Arizona State has many resources and excellent opportunities, the only thing I suggest is that you look hard for them. No one is there to hold your hand, if you want to maximize your education, you will have put in the hard work. If you do so, you will find a lot of treasures that will set up you and guide you through. There are free tutors for freshman, but they don't give you this information. I highly recommend to take University 101, it is an easy A and they walk you through the many resources offered which in turn will lead you to more resources. It is a good school and if you work for it, they will give you a great push into the world.
The Environmental Resource Management degree program was enjoyable and challenging. The classes concerning the engineering portion will either stress you out or give you a learning experience however most students experienced contempt for the engineering professor. The other professors dealt more with policy and science then there were electives that concerned over algae utilized toward commercialization. The algae class was useful in reinforcing engineering concepts alongside learning about assessments and cycles that concern products whether it be algae, biomass, etc. The program is great for students willing to learn diverse topics but not great for specializing as there is minimal topic concerning a single area. There are professional development courses that aid in providing certifications in which you can get the upper edge in job searches. There is an underlying focus on coding or GIS that is slowly becoming essential in environmental careers. Fortunately, ASU proves out GIS courses within different schools in the cost of spending more tuition on these courses. There is a certification regarding GIS but it appears anonymous experts tell you to spend your free time learning how to utilize GIS as a secondary skill versus learning it as your primary skill. The program isnt the only environmental major as there are environmental engineering degrees and environmental study degrees available at ASU. The school atmosphere at the polytechnic campus is very relaxing with mostly Asians, Indians, and whites encompassing the campus. The campus can feel empty during the night and feel busy during the day; the morning however, can vary in activity. Overall, I would suggest this school if you like to engage in various communities and experience various degrees while having fun.
ASU is a great university with a myriad of opportunities that can accommodate just about anything a student desires to accomplish. The faculty is great and the curriculum really prepared me well for my career. I think the networking opportunities are second to none and if you take advantage of all ASU has to offer, there are no doubts you can get to where you want to be.
