Arizona State University Reviews - Bachelor's in MathematicsSee reviews of all programs at Arizona State University
Arizona State University, being the largest public university, has many resources to help students succeed. They offer tutoring services, both in-person and online, and their financial aid and scholarship department has online search engines to help students find aid, to name a few. Arizona State is a great university to continue your education because they provide you with the tools you need to be successful. The faulty and staff care about their students' futures.
The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Arizona State University is a great program for students interested in a career in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and computation mathematics. However, students wanting to enter a field of theoretical research may want to look elsewhere. A vast majority of the faculty is interested in applied mathematics, and theoretical classes are not offered adequately for many undergraduate students. I am studying applied mathematics, however, and am very satisfied with my experience in the SOMSS.

It's a pretty school with lots of amenities but the teachers are low quality. I learned most of what I was supposed to be taught by watching MIT lectures online. Why can't all schools have the same caliber of professors as top Ivy League schools? We live in sad times.
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.
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.
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.
