Arizona State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (254)
Arizona State is a great party school, if you want an actual rigorous education that you can be proud of putting on your resume or hanging on your wall this is not your school. At the time I loved it, but after seeing another school for professional programs I am very unhappy with ASU.
ASU was one of my last options for a school, I had offers from places all over the country. However I felt that ASU was the most active. They wanted me to attend they were calling, sending me information on moving forward with my acceptance and they offered many scholarships. I attended ASU and was able to participate in many clubs on campus that allowed me to network with other students and learn about different areas of study. The professors were very supportive and were available to students. Overall I am very happy to be an ASU Alumni.
Arizona State University has a couple of campuses currently, however, I attended the West Campus. Back then it was just the upperclassmen allowed to attend, and today the campus has grown to include all four years. Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance program was a wonderful way to get a taste of the many areas that are media related: sound design, video production, lighting, creating your own installation or full on production. The class sizes were so intimate that one-on-one time with instructors during class was actually an option. Not only do the teachers teach, they also care, and my graduating class became a family. I'm still in touch with a number of my classmates even ten years later. Your life and memories will be enriched by choosing this campus and program. Just go for it!
Arizona State University provided me a challenging and stimulating environment in which to continue my education. The professors, regardless of the class, demonstrated expertise and passion in their fields. This commitment to their disciplines really inspired me to engage in the class and really aided in my retention of the material. The University provided a tremendous amount of resources to students that extended beyond the class room. Multiple and accessible computer labs, libraries, tutoring resources, and social venues were readily available to me when needed. I truly value the education and experiences that Arizona State provides it's students. I have entered Graduate school at Grand Canyon University, but will always have a very special place in my heart for Arizona State. I am extremely proud to be apart of the ASU alumni family.
I attended the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Overall, I had a very pleasant and beneficial experience. I found that ASU offered an abundance of resources that were invaluable. From student organizations, scholarship databases, (free) tutoring services, and advisors, ASU tries to prepare their students for post-graduate success while simultaneously getting them involved. During my junior year of school I decided to begin my pursuit towards law school. When I first began this journey, I was nervous; I had a lot of questions and uncertainties. Perhaps my favorite thing about ASU was that they had a pre-law advisor that I was able to make an appointment with right away. I was provided all the information I needed to begin making preparations for law school. Additionally, I quickly found that there were multiple pre-law societies and clubs offered at ASU that I got to choose from. I found that my actual education at ASU was moderately difficult. My class work-load in the business program was relatively heavy, but I found that the teachers didnt require or encourage critical thinking exercises as much as I would have liked. Rather than challenging the students to break apart their analysis and answers within the classroom, a large amount of my professors simply spoon-fed the correct answers. Nevertheless, my professors opened my mind to new perspectives and ultimately helped me become a more educated and well-rounded individual. I was required to take theoretical classes as well as practical classes. This combination of knowledge has led me to feel prepared for the real-world while also feeling as though my minds limits have been stretched.
Arizona State University is a vibrant college that provides numerous opportunities for students and faculty alike. The varying degree programs mean that each individual is able to discover what interests they find exciting, and are able to pursue their passion in an academic setting. My experience at ASU has been exceptional; I arrived at ASU with the desire to pursue Political Science, and in the last four years I have added on another major in Justice Studies and a minor in Italian. Through my education and experiences at ASU, I have been able to learn who I am as an individual both academically and socially, and use that within my community. Overall, my experience has been exceptional! I have had experiences that are second to none, and I owe it all to Arizona State! Go Devils!
Although I began my college career on-campus, I spent the last 3 semesters totally online and enjoyed it even more. The instructors in my program are excellent. Professional work is expected in your upper division classes. Be responsible for your work and share your experience with others at ASU.
Arizona State provides a unique experience in that you can take classes in-person, online, and in some cases a fun mixture of both. The adjunct teachers are all professionals in their field, and are exceptionally good at their professions. The coursework provides you with a clear understanding of what lies ahead in your chosen field. However, be careful which major you choose: They make market it well, but some have seriously underperforming career advancement opportunities.
The School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University was amazing. Excellent faculty doing real research in their field are teaching classes and providing opportunities for undergraduates to get experience in the field. The School of Earth and Space Exploration (colloquially called SESE) is participating in many NASA projects and has just been green lighted to head a new NASA project. SESE is inclusive and makes sure that all students can participate - they have something to offer everyone.
Attending ASU was one of the best decisions of my life. It was good to go right from high school into the college scene. ASU is a school which costs a bit of money, and the administration can be difficult to talk to at times, but once you get through the paperwork, the curriculum is fun and the classes are informative. The areas I enjoyed the most were communication and new technologies, physics and space exploration. The areas I really did not care so much for were architecture and design, and industrial design, because those career fields are a bit more involved and result in more subjective grading than that of math and science. Overall, it was a phenomenal experience and the instructors were great.
