Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

ASU is overall a good school. It lacks the "old world" prestige that many top-notch professors are looking for, and its size gives it a reputation as poor quality. However, ASU's size and subsequent income gives it the ability to offer a lot of merit scholarships and financial aid, and to offer degrees in new and innovative subjects, like sustainability or public service. Inter-department collaboration is pretty outstanding. As long as you don't mind that the school is run like a business, it's a great place to get a degree.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

Great school, awesome professors. The campus is beautiful and more peaceful than Tempe. It has more of a small school vibe which I really liked.

Find your own way at ASU. Otherwise you'll get swept up in the Sun Devil madness, own more red and yellow clothing than you ever wanted, and by the time you're done realize that your skin tone has taken on a slightly more of a jaundice/sunburn look than you would have liked. Also, you'll be compelled to look and act like a displaced SoCal resident so much that you'll lose most other sense of identity. So take my advice; drink the coolaide sparingly, go to a few games, and enjoy the Sun Devil atmosphere; but don't join the pack. Find your own way.

Degree: Architectural and Building Sciences/Technology
Graduation Year: 2010

The College of Design at Arizona State University strikes a balance between large universities and personally education. The large university provides the often desired college experience, opportunity to meet a variety of people with a variety of backgrounds, interests, and goals. The personal education comes from being a part of small, specialized school within the overall university network. The College of Design was very self contained and allowed for deep relationships with people with similar interests and goals. The high expectations and intensive course work drew students together and allowed for a real sense of community.

Degree: Design and Applied Arts, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe the academics are great but the size of the school and student to teacher ratio can be very overwhelming. I like to connect with my teachers and it's almost impossible to do at asu.

Graduation Year: 2014

I loved ASU! The professors challenge you, but were also very fair. I had a lot of wonderful experiences on campus as well as off. I will tell you that as an online student there is a bit of a gap when it comes to feeling involved in the ASU atmosphere. I did think it was nice that I received free tickets to an ASU basketball game, but that was only once the entire time I was a student. Being an online student was very time demanding. I did not have much of a social life, as most of my time went to taking care of my son, school, and working. However, it was very nice because I could do my school work from home and around my own schedule, and I didn't feel as though I was getting less as an online student. I read the same, learned the same, and produced a lot more work being an online student. If online is not for you, the Phoenix campus is beautiful. I would take the light rail and step right onto campus which helped me save a lot on transportation. The professors are passionate about what they teach, and that is what I look for in an instructor. I cant think of one teacher that I didn't enjoy as far as my degree program. My degree program was amazing. It is such a variety of things, so I was always learning something new. It wasn't just one subject like nutrition, but exercise and wellness, stress management, behavioral science, neuroscience and much more. The one thing I did not like about this degree is I felt like they didn't focus enough on the career side of things. As I am applying for jobs now, I'm noticing that people want you to be certified in personal training, or certified in counseling, and other certifications. So now I'm in a bind trying to get all these certifications when I wished the school could have stepped in and at least offered these certifications so I could do it all as a student. I feel a little unprepared and since this degree was focused on coaching and theory, it's very difficult to find a career without experience. The experience they are looking for is teaching health classes (like a gym class), being CPR, AED and first aid certified, and having experience in creating and implementing actual programs. I wish I had more opportunities to implement the programs I created in my degree program so that I could have measured the outcomes and see if they were successful. So if you want to do this program I highly suggest that you are very clear with what direction you want to go with it and focus on gaining the experience while you are still in school (if that is possible). I think this degree is perfect for starting your own business, and that is what I plan on doing with mine.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I was a part of Barrett, The Honors College there at ASU and i really feel like that gave me a head up in jobs. Many employers mentioned the fact that I was a part of the honors college and liked that. The SDFC is amazing complex is amazing! They have all the equipment and gyms you need. However, the staff at the SDFC are extremely unhelpful and not very professional. My Teachers college program I felt did a pretty good job at preparing me for my future career as a teacher. Their scheduling of some of our classes was not the best, but it was doable. There was no behavior management class, which I felt was really needed. However, I did like that we have a whole year of students teaching where as other schools do not offer this. Overall, I enjoyed ASU, but glad to be graduating and moving on.

Degree: Legal Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2014

I attended both on campus and online classes, however I while attending ASU I worked full time to try and pay for school therefore went to class either first thing in the morning or at night so I wasn't able to fully socialize with the other students. I did however attend several football games and recommend every student go to at least one and attend any ASU homecoming or event they were awesome and one way to meet other students.
