Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (198)
I was a non-traditional student. I originally started school left and then came back a few years later. ASU was at the cutting edge at the time by offering a wide variety of classes online which really enabled me to be able to pursue my degree full time while also working full time and supporting my family. The classes at ASU were much more affordable than the other online options that were out there at the time. The undergraduate psychology program was manageable enough while working full time, I do wish I had better guidance on which classes to take to help me earn my degree quicker and also better guidance on some of the classes I could have taken at community college that would have filled some requirements while also saving money.
My experience with ASU online has been great. The administration seem to really care about your success and push you to do your best. I learned so much from my Family and Human Development undergrad that I decided to go back for my Masters. I really learned so much and would recommend this school to anyone.
Arizona State University is an amazing experience! It has a lot of programs to offer both academically and extracurricular. The student body is very diverse and you meet people you have a lot in common with all over campus. The students are full of Sun Devil pride and that makes is fun on game days and at events. The professors are well known nationally and hold students to a high standard. I had the greatest 4 year experience at ASU and I encourage anyone to attend and get involved, to have the best college experience.
I completed my degree online at Arizona State University. The online courses fit my schedule, as I often have to travel for work. I found the classes to be challenging, and I think I grew academically and personally through my studies. Where Arizona State really stands out is the ability of the school to make you feel like they really care about your success. I never felt like I was "just a number" to the people I interacted with in admissions, financial aid, etc. They took whatever time was necessary to answer my questions and make sure I was prepared to succeed at the school. My professors were top notch as well. I would highly recommend ASU for anyone considering an online Bachelors degree.
I was overall satisfied with my time at Arizona State University. They have so many opportunities available for you to succeed whether its through tutoring, getting internships, or going to professor office hours. They have different campuses, and all of them are impressive.
Arizona State University has one of the most rewarding programs for Speech and Hearing Sciences. I am now going to graduate school at Arizona State University and am employed as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant. The professors at Arizona State have inspired me to continue my education and pursue my dream career.
My undergraduate degrees in both Kinesiology and Psychology were absolutely great. The instructors were hands on and invested in the students' understanding and progress. The content and was relevant and interesting, while challenging me to apply it hands on both in the classroom and independently. These degrees prepared me immensely for my graduate program by the expected quality of work as well as the practical application of knowledge during the program.
As I am only just beginning my masters program with Arizona State University (ASU) this fall, this review will be based on my experiences as an Undergraduate. ASU was the perfect choice for my higher education. The last four years have been nothing short of amazing for me. I have been able to meet many new people and make numerous new lifetime connections. The faculty and staff at ASU are awesome. It is clear they really love teaching, are passionate about their fields, and genuinely care about each and every students success. Even in a class of over 200 people, which I have had in some lower division courses, the professors will go out of their way to ensure that every student understands the material and will take extra time to answer questions or hold longer office hour visits. The Academic Advisors are just as amazing. They make it mandatory to visit every student, in person, at least once a year to ensure everything is going well. When I switched majors at the start of my junior year, my advisor took the time to create a detailed plan on what completed classes could be transferred and what I still needed to take. Because of their help, I was still able to graduate on-time with no problems. One of the biggest things that surprised me during my freshman year and the following years after was how culturally diverse ASU is. Students come from every corner of the world just to call ASU home. Not only was I able to better understand and appreciate other people and their cultures more, but I was able to learn a great deal about myself as well. Most of my classes were in-person lecture format, but I also took several online classes. ASU has mastered the function of both formats and the professors do a wonderful job of teaching the material, even in the online setting. Perhaps the biggest take away from attending ASU has been their ability to prepare students for the future. Several career fairs and workshops are held throughout the year where students have the opportunity to meet with local, national, and globall organizations to make connections and build relationships. My senior capstone class covered topics such as resume building, reference letter writing, and of course a large research project, experiences which will no doubt prove useful in the years to come. I was fortunate enough to have a full time job in my field lined up before graduation and I know its because of ASU's many resources this was possible. I commonly hear people say, "It is so easy to get into ASU", or "ASU accepts anyone, even without a pulse". Although some of these statements may be true, I don't believe it hinders the overall quality of education. ASU simply wants to give every student the opportunity to receive a higher education, but they are still going to have to work for it. I am extremely satisfied with my overall experiences as an undergrad at ASU which I why I have decided to also attend graduate school here; I can't wait to see where it takes me. I hope you choose ASU too!
Great faculty and opportunities to get involved with different things in the community. All professors and staff are very helpful and friendly which makes attending class and tutoring sessions that much easier. ASU helped me become a better person who is involved in the community!
As a homegrown Tucsonan, I never thought that I would find myself attending Arizona State University. I am, after all, a true Wildcat fan at heart. A number of reasons have brought me to this University, along with my critical eye for their methods and curriculum. I was once an attendee of the University of Arizona, where the inevitable ASU bashing was fervent and frequent. Though I never paid much attention to what was said specifically, I do remember that ASU was said to grade on a bell curve. That memory was brought to the forefront of my mind when I begun my first semester at ASU. Do they really grade on a curve? Does that mean making As will be easier? My brain was suddenly filled with questions about my new school, which allowed my unconscious thoughts to make potential excuses for my perceived work ethic. Now that I sit on the other side of the proverbial glass, I have found that grading on a curve is not synonymous with stupidity. Though it does happen, it does not mean that the ASU student body is of a lesser quality like my U of A counterparts had led me to believe. My experience at ASU has exceeded my muddled expectations. I have had some brilliant professors within the psychology realm-- some who have both challenged my mind and broadened my perception of life itself. Though I have encountered a few teachers with whom I did not mesh, that is par for the academic course. If I were to allow a few bad apples to cloud my judgment of the education I have received, it would devalue my entire experience. When I made the decision to attend ASU, I let the trivialized opinion of others undermine my decisiona major no-no for a young adult embarking on a significant life experience. I am currently a proud ASU student, my time at this University has taught me to trust in my own decisions, and pilot this life of mine without my parents in the jump seat.
