Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (204)
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.
Choosing a major in science or engineering will have a better chance of getting a job after graduation. Art and music are wonderful hobbies that you can do on the side if you really love them. It is easier to switch to your hobby as a source of income than the start working in creative arts when the economy is still down.
The teachers in the physical science department were very knowledgeable with actual field experience to relate in their teaching.
It was amazing .there was always help on campus . The Campus was clean .
Very expansive comparing to the quality of program. Math and Physics lectures are awful many times. Testing and home work process is painful. If you are comfortable with self learning or have enough time to kill over homework problems, this is a good place for you. Some test are multiple choice but many require final answer to be plugged. Good luck with earning credits for such a heavy work load. Try attending to old fashion class room and paper system, if accommodation is possible for you. It is more fun that way.
