I was introduced to ASU when Starbucks started their College Achivement Plan in association with ASU. I think their online program is groundbreaking and an amazing experience. I am a parent and full time Store Manager and I was able to complete my degree after transferring in as a Junior straight through 2 years. Their block system makes mapping out coursework easier because you can see your loads in two class increments. The financial aid information in their MyASU platform made tracking my tuition seamless. There were plenty of people from ASU available for support but I rarely needed to use those resources because the portal itself is so user friendly and informative. All of the instructing staff were knowledgeable about their subjects and created excellent learning environments for their students. Text book pricing was fair and the course work itself was not overwhelming while still drive all the necessary key points. I feel like I gained so much more from my experience while at ASUOnline than just a degree. I was so happy with ASU's online environment that I have continued on with the Thunderbird OMGM through ASUOnline.
I genuinely appreciated my professor's support and guidance throughout my undergraduate career. The materials and readings were relevant to each course. The professors were knowledgeable in the fields of Criminal Justice and Criminology, I felt comfortable with the requirements of each course.
Overall the Criminal Justice & Criminology program at Arizona State University was a great choice for me. The teachers are tough yet caring, and you learn more than you expect going in. Career services and advising for this program in particular was top notch, I was emailed with networking and job opportunities nearly every week. ASU is definitely on the rise.
Arizona State University has an excellent environment something in which students will find ideal for their success. Furthermore, ASU staff will always help you in times of need and will push for achievement. Having someone standing by your side is helpful because you then have someone to support you. On my part, an ASU advisor, Donovan Lee, from the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice was there for me in all cases, and that is unforgettable.
Arizona State University (ASU) is home for everyone irrespective of where you come from. The school has qualified professors who are always ready to help you achieve your goal. One thing I found exceptional throughout my journey at ASU is that most of the professors go on an extra mile to ensure that students are satisfied with the help they need. The academic advisers, on the other hand, will help you with the type of class you need to take each semester so that you will not the behind your major map.
Arizona State University was one of the first universities to change the world and make college more accessible for students that would not have been able to attend college otherwise. It provided state residents a competitively affordable tuition with top-notch professors. The large campus is always busy with students hustling between classes, research labs, and work. ASU has a competitive research program that ranks highest in the nation. The university has really changed their status and risen to the top ranks in best colleges in the U,S, by opening their arms to welcome all students based on their merit and what they can offer. The Sun Devil community is full of opportunities and dedicated to giving back to their communities. That's why I will always be a proud Sun Devil!
This school is famous for making degrees that have no weight in real life. You learn a bunch of theory that you can't apply in real life and the job market is reserved for those who can attain a clinical licensure, which you can't do with this degree. I ended up not being able to compete with people who had associate degrees in nursing, medical lab science, or people who had certificates as medical assistants or medical coding. How do you explain that? I can't say the professors were bad, but it's unfortunate that they were teaching curriculum fo a degree that was worthless for attaining employment and expensive. Today, many of the people I graduated with are working in other professions that have nothing to do with healthcare. Stay away from fluff degrees such as this one. ASU doesn't care about having programs that actually equal professional employment. Do you your job as a student and check to make sure the degree your are seeking is in demand and will pay good money once you graduate. Most degree programs at this school are outdated and garbage. Let's not forget that they are expensive for a state school.
The time that I have spent here at Arizona State University has been more than great. The faculty and students that I have had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with all had the same goal of improving our education in the area of Electrical Engineering. I have had some great professors who were always available( either in person or via email) to discuss coursework as well as out of class questions. The campus itself is sized fairly well with a great atmosphere and great future plans for improvement. It is part of a growing Tempe and it will be really great to see how far the school grows in terms of structures as well as student diversity and faculty expertise.
ASU's Anthropology program has some of the greatest minds in the field today working as faculty. You have the opportunity to study with and work for a diverse group of Anthropologists, Linguists, Paleoanthropologists, Archaeologists, and Global Health researchers and instructors. The campus is massive and there is rarely a dull moment in Tempe. The campus can feel quite homogenous at times, but the quality of the education is top notch.
ASU is a college full of many incredible opportunities. These opportunities, however, are not freely given or, at times, advertised. So, to be very involved and successful at ASU, students need to take the initiative and put in additional work. While this may seem intimidating, it provides so many incredible opportunities later in life and is definitely worth the effort.
