Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (198)
Although I began my college career on-campus, I spent the last 3 semesters totally online and enjoyed it even more. The instructors in my program are excellent. Professional work is expected in your upper division classes. Be responsible for your work and share your experience with others at ASU.
Arizona State provides a unique experience in that you can take classes in-person, online, and in some cases a fun mixture of both. The adjunct teachers are all professionals in their field, and are exceptionally good at their professions. The coursework provides you with a clear understanding of what lies ahead in your chosen field. However, be careful which major you choose: They make market it well, but some have seriously underperforming career advancement opportunities.
The School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University was amazing. Excellent faculty doing real research in their field are teaching classes and providing opportunities for undergraduates to get experience in the field. The School of Earth and Space Exploration (colloquially called SESE) is participating in many NASA projects and has just been green lighted to head a new NASA project. SESE is inclusive and makes sure that all students can participate - they have something to offer everyone.
Attending ASU was one of the best decisions of my life. It was good to go right from high school into the college scene. ASU is a school which costs a bit of money, and the administration can be difficult to talk to at times, but once you get through the paperwork, the curriculum is fun and the classes are informative. The areas I enjoyed the most were communication and new technologies, physics and space exploration. The areas I really did not care so much for were architecture and design, and industrial design, because those career fields are a bit more involved and result in more subjective grading than that of math and science. Overall, it was a phenomenal experience and the instructors were great.
There are many young people who work there. Not many seem to know the reality of life. Every aspect of attending ASU is all done online in the beginning. There will be computer glitches between ASU's system and FASFA's. There is no way to deal with any of it person to person. I tried and thought it was resolved, nope, it still did not accept my taxes from 2015. The first person lead me to believe it was all taken care of. I could not find help to find a three credit class that would fit in my schedule to be full time. I asked for help and was shown online the classes I could choose from. Nothing was a fit except a lab for biology that I was already taking on Fridays. Horrible that companies who take our money for what we are seeking have bad customer service. Worse is the education system is flipping people in taking their money and not communicating with clarity. I think all education systems need a few classes in communication and the value of communicating that leads to long-term relationships to sustain business. DON'T BE SCAMMED! I have already attended colleges in TN, TX, AZ, and CA. I was able to attain an education that has aided me. ASU is not for me. Especially since my interest is genetics, AZ is not the place for education in genetics.
Attending Arizona State University has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. Being able to attend university online has opened a door for me that otherwise would have stayed closed. The ability to schedule my education around my busy life as a stay at home mother of two young boys has enabled me to finished my B.S. in Family and Human Development. This program provided me with insight and clarity into the lives of families from all different walks of life. Anyone planning to work with children or families would greatly benefit from the interaction with classmates, learning from others experiences, as well as learning from Instructors that genuinely care and strive for success.
I had a good experience getting my MA in Criminal Justice at ASU. For most courses you had the choice of 7.5 or 15 week semesters. The course load was doubled for the shorter semester. I chose the 7.5, and would concentrate on one class at a time as I did two per semester. The professors were knowledgeable and responsive, and I did learn a great deal.
I believe that my education has helped me to learn many of the skills I will need in my future career. I look forward to continuing toward my graduate education and my career beyond that. Many of the teachers were engaging and helpful if you go to their office hours and actively seek information from them.
I attended ASU pursuing a bachelors degree in Architecture. Overall, I was pleased with the education that I received from the university. The curriculum and staff in the architecture program helped me develop a sense of thinking like a designer that I previously did not have. The staff at ASU come from all over the world providing great insight and perspective!
Overall I have enjoyed my experience at ASU. I have found staff and professors to be mostly friendly and helpful. I would recommend getting a B.A. in Psychology if one would like to pursue a job in behavioral health or would like to continue on with a graduate program in behavioral health. My degree has helped me find a job in behavior coaching and I am now working in the ABA field. I really could not imagine doing anything else.
