Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I was a part of Barrett, The Honors College there at ASU and i really feel like that gave me a head up in jobs. Many employers mentioned the fact that I was a part of the honors college and liked that. The SDFC is amazing complex is amazing! They have all the equipment and gyms you need. However, the staff at the SDFC are extremely unhelpful and not very professional. My Teachers college program I felt did a pretty good job at preparing me for my future career as a teacher. Their scheduling of some of our classes was not the best, but it was doable. There was no behavior management class, which I felt was really needed. However, I did like that we have a whole year of students teaching where as other schools do not offer this. Overall, I enjoyed ASU, but glad to be graduating and moving on.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2015

I would recommend to anyone ASU. They were very efficient and quick with working on any issue I had. All the professors were excellent in teaching and assisting me outside of class, always eager to help. very quick in processing important paper work for classes, financial aid and transcripts. When I initially started college at a community college I had a negative experience but after coming to Asu they completely changed my experience with dealing with colleges.Overall Arizona State University and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences were amazing with my college experience.

Degree: Legal Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2014

I attended both on campus and online classes, however I while attending ASU I worked full time to try and pay for school therefore went to class either first thing in the morning or at night so I wasn't able to fully socialize with the other students. I did however attend several football games and recommend every student go to at least one and attend any ASU homecoming or event they were awesome and one way to meet other students.

ASU is often stereotyped as a party school without much academic merit, but it truly is an exceptional institution. The best thing about ASU is that despite its massive size, you have access to so much academic, personal, and professional support, that you feel as if you are attending a much smaller institution.

ASU is a helpful university. They offer an extensive use of resources. The professors there are very flexible to your concerns and are experienced in the field they are teaching.

Tell us about your college experience.

My college experience was good overall. I wish that I had been involved in more than I was, but it was still a good experience. I would say that my school was a good fit for me since it was close to where I had grown up and because there were so many opportunities available.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would not choose the same degree. The degree I chose is difficult to apply in the workforce. I would have selected something more directly applicable to industry and I would also have picked up a second major.

What advice can you offer other students?

My advice to students is to get involved in a lot of different programs, activities and clubs in college. You can always drop out of events and activities later, but it's difficult to get really involved once you're already partially through school.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2010

I graduated in 2010 with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree. My concentrations were Social Work and Religious Studies. Although the instruction in the online IDS classes was good I graduated with few job prospects. I really have no one to blame but myself. I was interested in Social Work but did not want to go the traditional route. Believing that IDS would offer an expanded breadth of knowledge that would make me a more attractive hire to the Social Service providers I was interested in I went that route.

My recommendation is this: do your homework if you don't know exactly what job your degree will qualify you for; do not assume that it will qualify you for anything. Part of the issue was cuts, to federal funding, which fund most of the social service programs. These cuts took place during my 3rd and 4th year of school, which greatly decreased the number of social service jobs available and lowered the pay for those jobs.

I love ASU. The quality of teachers is exceptional and I feel that I always get the support I need. The student body is diverse. ASU has many resources for students of all types. Great computer labs and library as well.

Ten years ago, I received my Associates degree from a local community college. Being stuck in a career field that I disliked motivated me to look at going back to school to get my Bachelors Degree in a field that I care about. I looked at the 3 big schools here in Arizona - NAU, UofA and ASU. After reading about ASU's innovation and its ideals about a sustainable future, I knew that this was the school for me.

My experience has been nothing but pleasant with ASU. Being 10 years out of the loop on how to go about being a college student again, I had a LOT of questions for the admissions, financial aid and advising departments. Everyone was so helpful and I am very grateful for this as I was so nervous about going back to school! So far I am absolutely enjoying my courses, professors and fellow classmates. It is wonderful to be a part of shaping the future.

Graduation Year: 2014

Being from Arizona, my ultimate choice to attend ASU was at first, something I was ashamed of. With ASU's reputation as a large state 'party' school and nothing more, I was not pleased that my financial situation only allowed me to attend ASU.

However, ASU, and its faculty and staff, have proven me wrong on every misconception I had. ASU, although large, fosters a sense of community and offers so much student support that you get the sense of a smaller, private university. ASU offers an abundance of student organizations to get involved with, numerous resources for career/internship exploration, and is great at helping you narrow down your interests to pick the right major and pursue relevant opportunities.

Additionally, ASU is a leading university in terms of research, and undergraduates have the opportunity to participate in research from the very start of their academic careers. This is not to be taken lightly, as most universities reserve such research opportunities for graduate students only.
