Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (170)
Arizona State University has embarked on a complete revamping of their image over the past 10 years or so. The once perennial top 10 party school of the USA is now a formidable competitor to private schools with household names such as Stanford, Harvard, MIT, etc. in the fight to enroll the most gifted minds for the future. ASU is now a notably recognized research institution with affordable tuition rates because of its public standing. It has been rated as the number one school for innovation by the U.S. News and World Report for 2016, ahead of both Stanford University and MIT. ASU has equipped itself to both grow as a research university and as a shaper of young and eager minds. With money to spend, ASU has already begun to attract the top researchers and lecturers in all fields. The institution, as of this year, boasts four Nobel Laureate faculty as well as the best ranked honors college in the nation. These facts, combined with the influx of talented lecturers and researchers, will no doubt lead ASU to become one of the top destinations for brilliant minds in the future. As a student of ASU, I gained the knowledge and connections that will make me successful in the future. The professors and staff are always helpful. The programs and their curriculum are rigorous, but not discouraging. In my own studies, I excelled because of ASU's resources for success. I was welcomed into research labs and extracurricular organizations with open arms, all of which helped me obtain three internships during school, two in STEM and one in business. My experiences at ASU will undoubtedly lead to success in my career, and, best of all, my pockets were not completely dried up in the meantime.
I have had a great experience with Arizona State University thus far. I thought that taking classes only online would be difficult, but the staff at ASU make it easy to understand and provide plenty of helpful information to help students learn the material. The academic advisors, tech help, and those working in the financial aid department are always ready and willing to help answer any questions you have. They really go above and beyond the call of duty.
I was a non-traditional student. I originally started school left and then came back a few years later. ASU was at the cutting edge at the time by offering a wide variety of classes online which really enabled me to be able to pursue my degree full time while also working full time and supporting my family. The classes at ASU were much more affordable than the other online options that were out there at the time. The undergraduate psychology program was manageable enough while working full time, I do wish I had better guidance on which classes to take to help me earn my degree quicker and also better guidance on some of the classes I could have taken at community college that would have filled some requirements while also saving money.
My experience with ASU online has been great. The administration seem to really care about your success and push you to do your best. I learned so much from my Family and Human Development undergrad that I decided to go back for my Masters. I really learned so much and would recommend this school to anyone.
Arizona State University is an amazing experience! It has a lot of programs to offer both academically and extracurricular. The student body is very diverse and you meet people you have a lot in common with all over campus. The students are full of Sun Devil pride and that makes is fun on game days and at events. The professors are well known nationally and hold students to a high standard. I had the greatest 4 year experience at ASU and I encourage anyone to attend and get involved, to have the best college experience.
I completed my degree online at Arizona State University. The online courses fit my schedule, as I often have to travel for work. I found the classes to be challenging, and I think I grew academically and personally through my studies. Where Arizona State really stands out is the ability of the school to make you feel like they really care about your success. I never felt like I was "just a number" to the people I interacted with in admissions, financial aid, etc. They took whatever time was necessary to answer my questions and make sure I was prepared to succeed at the school. My professors were top notch as well. I would highly recommend ASU for anyone considering an online Bachelors degree.
I was overall satisfied with my time at Arizona State University. They have so many opportunities available for you to succeed whether its through tutoring, getting internships, or going to professor office hours. They have different campuses, and all of them are impressive.
Arizona State University has one of the most rewarding programs for Speech and Hearing Sciences. I am now going to graduate school at Arizona State University and am employed as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant. The professors at Arizona State have inspired me to continue my education and pursue my dream career.
My undergraduate degrees in both Kinesiology and Psychology were absolutely great. The instructors were hands on and invested in the students' understanding and progress. The content and was relevant and interesting, while challenging me to apply it hands on both in the classroom and independently. These degrees prepared me immensely for my graduate program by the expected quality of work as well as the practical application of knowledge during the program.
As I am only just beginning my masters program with Arizona State University (ASU) this fall, this review will be based on my experiences as an Undergraduate. ASU was the perfect choice for my higher education. The last four years have been nothing short of amazing for me. I have been able to meet many new people and make numerous new lifetime connections. The faculty and staff at ASU are awesome. It is clear they really love teaching, are passionate about their fields, and genuinely care about each and every students success. Even in a class of over 200 people, which I have had in some lower division courses, the professors will go out of their way to ensure that every student understands the material and will take extra time to answer questions or hold longer office hour visits. The Academic Advisors are just as amazing. They make it mandatory to visit every student, in person, at least once a year to ensure everything is going well. When I switched majors at the start of my junior year, my advisor took the time to create a detailed plan on what completed classes could be transferred and what I still needed to take. Because of their help, I was still able to graduate on-time with no problems. One of the biggest things that surprised me during my freshman year and the following years after was how culturally diverse ASU is. Students come from every corner of the world just to call ASU home. Not only was I able to better understand and appreciate other people and their cultures more, but I was able to learn a great deal about myself as well. Most of my classes were in-person lecture format, but I also took several online classes. ASU has mastered the function of both formats and the professors do a wonderful job of teaching the material, even in the online setting. Perhaps the biggest take away from attending ASU has been their ability to prepare students for the future. Several career fairs and workshops are held throughout the year where students have the opportunity to meet with local, national, and globall organizations to make connections and build relationships. My senior capstone class covered topics such as resume building, reference letter writing, and of course a large research project, experiences which will no doubt prove useful in the years to come. I was fortunate enough to have a full time job in my field lined up before graduation and I know its because of ASU's many resources this was possible. I commonly hear people say, "It is so easy to get into ASU", or "ASU accepts anyone, even without a pulse". Although some of these statements may be true, I don't believe it hinders the overall quality of education. ASU simply wants to give every student the opportunity to receive a higher education, but they are still going to have to work for it. I am extremely satisfied with my overall experiences as an undergrad at ASU which I why I have decided to also attend graduate school here; I can't wait to see where it takes me. I hope you choose ASU too!
