Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (75)
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.
I don't understand all the hate Arizona State gets from people. I loved it, it's the true and traditional style of school where, if you don't try, you don't succeed. And be wary, there are many, many students that are there solely for the purpose of partying. If you're generally interested in your studies, you need to know how and when to study, the school wont walk you step by step through everything in class because there are more important things to be covered. If you don't understand something, the TA's and Professors are all extremely willing to help. GO TO OFFICE HOURS, trust me, even if you understand stuff, just attending with small questions will help create a bond with your professor, and it also makes them more likely to be lenient on your grades if something comes out wrong. The classrooms are high quality, the computer labs are shockingly good quality, and have dual monitors, which is nice.
I felt as though Arizona State University was an innovative and well organized university. I attended the Herberger College of Fine Arts. They had great advisors that helped me formulate a plan for my success. While it has been some time since I attend ASU, I still believe that they prepared me well in my degree choice and I was employable the moment I graduated.
ASU had a good curriculum for a Biology major. The teachers were excellent and I enjoyed all my classes. There's an active social scene and the campus is proud of their sport teams.
I attended the Tucson School of Social Work to receive my MSW. What I liked about the program was that it was small, so you can get to know your classmates and teachers very well. Attending the Tucson location means that if you are looking for opportunities to get involved in government, advocacy, or research, your options are limited and you'd have to make a serious effort to connect to faculty and organizations in Phoenix. Also, this is not the school's fault, but the cost of the degree is not commensurate with pay in the field. Before applying to this program, get a job in behavioral health with an employer who will do tuition reimbursement. Although I now have a job in the field, I'm pretty sure I will never pay off all of my student loans before I die.
ASU is a great school to study in. ASU has interdisciplinary and innovative programs of study. ASU provides a great education in all undergraduate and graduate programs.
Poor/non-existent use of the case method, far too much emphasis on research trivia - most instructors had little/no 'real-world' experience. Material was also too easy. 'Socratic Method' never used. No effort to provide a structured approach to application.
I like many others chose ASU for the convince of being able be a distance learner at a reputable brick and mortar institution. I had a great experience. My professors and TA's were extremely helpful and actually taught classes. Online lectures were what you would expect if you were in an in class environment with added power point presentations. I really enjoyed my time there and am exploring my options to obtain my Graduate Degree from this institution. I am seriously surprised at all the negative reviews.
I researched many online institutions and eventually made the choice to attend Arizona State University. I completed my Master's in Criminal Justice mostly for my career and to eventually teach part time at the local community college. I read many mixed reviews and came to the realization that I needed to make a choice because every online institution had their pros and cons. I am very satisfied my choice and happy to have graduated from a credible institution. Remember, you will get out what you put in. So read the assigned material, put your mind and heart into every assignment and you will be glad you did. The amount of work depends on the professor. Some professors wanted a short paper every week and a final paper at the end of the course. (Each course is 7 weeks). Some professors only required discussion boards and a final exam. I never had an issue with communication. Professors or their assistants always responded quickly. Remember you are an adult. You are responsible for giving yourself enough time to get your questions answered before an assignment is due or to fix an issue.
