Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I loved attending ASU! I transferred to ASU from Northern Arizona University (NAU) due to personal reasons and I am thankful that I received the last two years of my education at this university. I had wonderful, attentive, and caring advisors who helped me to make sure that I would succeed. While I had a difficult time with one or two professors, most of the professors that I worked with were fantastic! They were eager to work with any student that was putting effort into their education and made an effort to cater the lessons to their students. The prerequisite classes are quite large, but once you've had the opportunity to specify what major your working on the upper division classes are much smaller and allow for a much more personal atmosphere. My professors helped me to realize what aspects of Ecology I enjoyed and assisted me in finding the right opportunities for gaining experience in that field. ASU is also a large research university that has significant funding for all kinds of projects. Within a week of starting at the university, I was able to find a laboratory that needed volunteers. My lab manager helped me develop new projects and allowed me to explore as much as possible in the lab. He ended up writing me a letter of recommendation and helped me get into graduate school! The resources that ASU has to offer are extensive. They have three campuses and in my experience they really do try to make it as easy as possible to get your education. My experience at ASU was fantastic, but there are a few things that I will encourage those looking into their undergraduate programs and schools to look into: 1.) Don't be scared to ask questions. The advisors and the registrar office are there to help you. This is a large university with a ton of resources, but it ay not be the school for everyone. I had skype meetings and long email chats with many of those in these offices before deciding to enroll. Do your research because you are going to be spending a lot of time and money on your education and you want to make sure that you are confident in your choices. 2.) Not every teacher that you are going to have should be allowed to teach. One of the downfalls of going to a research university is that anyone doing research at this university is also required to teach. Unfortunately, it means that some of the professors suck. These were few and far between at my time at ASU, but they were still there. At first I found this extremely discouraging and thought that it reflected on the university poorly, but as I encountered more and more of the amazing professors that ASU had employed, I realized that it's simply impossible to have the best of the best in everything. If you have a terrible professor for one or two of your classes, I would recommend that you look into the other sections that this class is being offered in, keep your head down and just push through the semester, or go into office hours and make an attempt to develop a relationship with that professor. 3.) Don't limit yourself based on first impressions. ASU has tens of thousands of students, which means they offer a massive variety of classes. Go exploring! Take a humanities class that you would never have imagined would be a class, join a club that will teach you something new. ASU has a lot to offer and going in tunnel visioned or brushing an opportunity off because you didn't like what you saw the first time can put a damper on the experience. I am aware that not every university has the right environment for every student, but I think that ASU is large enough, diverse enough, and dedicated enough to give their students a great education. I loved my time there and I think that it deserves consideration from any student looking for their next step in life.

Degree: Microbiology, General
Graduation Year: 2011

I sought this degree as a pre-med student because of the complex nature of microbiology. After completing two years of medical school I was grateful for the vast amount of knowledge I had gained from this undergraduate program in microbiology. Microbiology is one of the most difficult subjects for medical students to master and with this undergraduate degree from Arizona State University I was prepared for the extensive amount of microbiology presented during the basic science years of medical school.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Many places, hospitals notwithstanding, are requiring more and more education to get hired. I knew acquiring my Bachelor of Science in Nursing would provide more room for growth and opportunities. I have always wanted to continue my nursing education and ASU was honestly just a convenient college for me because I got my Associates in nursing from a partner community college. It was hassle free to do the bridge RN to BSN program and didn't require a bunch of extra courses. It was all online and required mostly papers, group work and being technically savvy. I actually ended up enjoying many of my classes and how they expanded my understanding of a nurses role in many health care fields and enabled me to see the potential in my career. I love what I do and ASU offers programs that enable me to keep chasing my dreams such as through their new Pediatric DNP program! I think if any nurses are looking for a good bridge program for RN to BSN or other advanced nursing degrees ASU is a great school that has both flexible programs and lots of options for focused specialities.

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2019

My time at Arizona State University has been nothing short of amazing. The instructors I have had the pleasure of meeting are very professional and knowledgeable. I never once had a professor who I felt was unprofessional or a lesson I felt was just a waste of time. The work was at a normal difficulty and the lectures were full of good information. As long as you take notes and study, you set yourself up for success. If you struggle at all, there is multiple resources that Arizona State has to offer you and they will give you a sense of direction in order to find them. You are not alone at Arizona State and the environment around you is encouraging and welcoming. I have met many people throughout my years there that I remain in contact with today. The overall experience I had at Arizona State was positive and amazing. I would recommend this University to anyone looking to have a good social and educational experience. I believe they have a lot to offer anyone and everyone.
