Degree: French Studies
Graduation Year: 2009

Arizona State is great in that it offers countless options for studies/majors and minors of all sorts for those who are not certain of what they wish to pursue. You can major in one area like engineering and minor or double major in something completely different like music or foreign language. The only downside is that although there is a wide selection, it felt like certain areas were more shallow and weaker than a school with more specialization towards fewer disciplines.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

ASU is overall a good school. It lacks the "old world" prestige that many top-notch professors are looking for, and its size gives it a reputation as poor quality. However, ASU's size and subsequent income gives it the ability to offer a lot of merit scholarships and financial aid, and to offer degrees in new and innovative subjects, like sustainability or public service. Inter-department collaboration is pretty outstanding. As long as you don't mind that the school is run like a business, it's a great place to get a degree.

Great school, awesome professors. The campus is beautiful and more peaceful than Tempe. It has more of a small school vibe which I really liked.

Degree: Computer and Information Systems Security/Information Assurance
Graduation Year: 2012

Overpriced, but can't do much without it. Pick a major that actually makes money, and use your other interests as hobbies. You will never have a job that makes money and makes you happy, take one that you can stand going to work, and perhaps is rewarding if you are lucky.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2001

It's a good college for certain degrees, but not for others. They seem to have a good nursing and business program. A negative is in-state students still have to live on campus their freshman year with very few exceptions, which is counter-productive for those trying to save money by going to a college in-state.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

The early courses are structured well enough to get you committed. After the first full semester you begin to see the true colors of the program. There is very little teaching going on, the majority of programming classes give you a pile of information or a couple of links to online manuals and expect you to build code out of it once a week. If you are lucky you can access other materials online, some courses are teaching PLP which is a learning platform that appears to exist only at ASU. I would steer clear of this program knowing what i know now. Math courses were surprisingly well taught for what its worth.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Finances are horrible at the school. They will steal you blind. Account for every penny and make sure you have everything well documented. Use emails instead of calling. Online experience is reat for the first class then the quality degrades as you advance in your college degree.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Find your own way at ASU. Otherwise you'll get swept up in the Sun Devil madness, own more red and yellow clothing than you ever wanted, and by the time you're done realize that your skin tone has taken on a slightly more of a jaundice/sunburn look than you would have liked. Also, you'll be compelled to look and act like a displaced SoCal resident so much that you'll lose most other sense of identity. So take my advice; drink the coolaide sparingly, go to a few games, and enjoy the Sun Devil atmosphere; but don't join the pack. Find your own way.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

This school is unorganized. The advisor's are not knowledgeable at all. They do not know how to do their jobs. When asked if they have a degree or if a degree is required to work as an advisor, the advisor will hang up on you. lol What a joke of a school. The only thing this school is good for is the bars located close to campus. The personnel must frequent them often.
