Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2019

Really awesome degree programs, but ASU only cares about money! I am in triple digit debt, and for what? I had to ask 5 different teachers for letters of recommendations for graduate school because most said no. It is like.. they do not really care. I would email professors about meeting to discuss "next-steps" for after graduation and most did not answer me. I simply wanted to know how they got into the field they were in, I was interested in it for myself, and 3 separate professors ignored me. They go on and on about mentor-ship and opportunities but for the amount of money I paid them in tuition and fees, all I truly got was a headache. I learned really interesting material in class, but most of it was self-driven. I had to make my own schedules and independently study topics. I had to make my own class schedules, advising has no idea what they are doing. It is a lot of YOU doing for yourself, and that is fine and it prepares you for the real-world. But why am I in so much debt for a school that really did not do much for me?

ASU Polytechnic is a great study school with plenty of science programs to choose from, advisers to talk to, and a small campus feel that allows for easy formations of relationships with everyone you interact with. I really enjoyed gaining lasting mentors and connections.

Degree: Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Other

Arizona State University is a great school with many amazing professors and research facilities. It is surrounded by the entirety of the greater Phoenix area, so there are so many opportunities for jobs and internships. ASU opens the door to so many possibilities.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2012

I enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I do believe I attended the school for a different reason than my peers. At the time, ASU was a known party school and had a reputation for drinking and partying, not its education. The only reason I attended was because I received a scholarship from the school and it was close to home. Although this was the case, I do not regret my decision the least bit. I actually learned a lot in my major and met some really awesome people.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Their classes only present information. This school does not help you in anyway to get a job in the field you studied. Also their Forensics program is nothing more then a joke. In one class the instructor gave the class material to read about Topac, including all the sexual street language and I thought it was very inappropriate and a very bad choice of material that didn't belong in an educational environment. Also, their Reach-trio program is worthless and needs to be trashed all together. This is just for starters.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2019

I am in the online biochemistry degree because I work full time in a doctors office. I found it extremely difficult to be able to attend school full time as a ground student and still work because most of the classes and labs are right in the middle of my day. Arizona State University had come up with a full time online degree so I am able to continue to work full time and go to school at the same time. The advisors set up a schedule with classes to take during each semester so I can graduate in less than 2 years. It is very doable since I am an older person and have less energy than the typical college student.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Arizona State University was a great experience. Studying biology here from 2009-2013 was very useful in learning how to write, study, and promote myself to employers showing them that I put in the effort to obtain a college degree. With my biology degree, I was able to teach biology at the high school and university levels in schools in Colombia, South America for over 2 years. Without this degree, I'm certain that I would not have gotten the job. Some of my favorite courses were microbiology, evolution, vertebrate zoology, and the many electives that lead me to being able to studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. Their laboratories have lots of expensive and on the frontier of science equipment, especially once you are in the upper division labs. The only thing I wish my program would have done better was to require me to have some kind of internship or biology work outside of the classroom. Graduating with no work experience can be difficult and the degree alone will not guarantee you a job.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

The biochemistry program at Arizona State University is a rigorous and time-consuming degree. Because ASU is the number one in innovation, there is a large focus on research. As such, many of the professors have laboratories that you may be able to work in as an undergraduate student. This step is critical to the process of getting a job in industry after graduation. The coursework is difficult, but the upper level professors really do seem to care about the success of their students, especially those that seek help when they are in need. I would recommend this program to anyone who likes a challenge and has a lot of initiative when it comes to their academics.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Based on my own knowledge and the knowledge of other college students at different institutions, I can proudly say that ASU is the most diverse and welcoming university that I know of. The University represents a community of innovators, and future leaders of the world and it is a constant learning experience being around so many great minds. Another great aspect of the school is the fact that it can be accessed at many different locations making it easier for those that cannot always get to a campus. Overall, my degree program gave me such a wide variety of biological science material to work with and learn from anything to genetics to adaptations of plants and animals. The instructors were always welcoming and made the classes enjoyable for anyone in the degree program. I definitely got my moneys worth and Arizona State University Polytechnic!
