ASU's Anthropology program has some of the greatest minds in the field today working as faculty. You have the opportunity to study with and work for a diverse group of Anthropologists, Linguists, Paleoanthropologists, Archaeologists, and Global Health researchers and instructors. The campus is massive and there is rarely a dull moment in Tempe. The campus can feel quite homogenous at times, but the quality of the education is top notch.
ASU is a college full of many incredible opportunities. These opportunities, however, are not freely given or, at times, advertised. So, to be very involved and successful at ASU, students need to take the initiative and put in additional work. While this may seem intimidating, it provides so many incredible opportunities later in life and is definitely worth the effort.
Arizona State University is a very well-rounded university, it recently has won many awards including #1 in innovation. I feel ASU has provided me with an excellent education thanks to the professional faculty. There is an astounding amount of research opportunity which prepares you professionally and academically for any field post-graduation. As an alumni, ASU has kept in touch and continuously invites me to networking opportunities, so as you can see this school truly cares about its students and alumni.
This school is underrated, it offers immense opportunities and networks due do it being such a large university. Anyone who is considering attending ASU can succeed and thrive if they simply take advantage of the vast opportunities that are offered to each student.
I am proud to be Sun Devil. During my four years of undergrad I received a lot support from faculty, staff and students, found great opportunities (working on campus, studying abroad, research opportunities and internships), felt a lot of spirit within my community, safety on and surrounding campus, and had many different options when it came to how and where I could learn. I was honored to receive the opportunity to continue my studies at the number one school in innovation to work towards a masters degree in counseling. I will return to Arizona State University this fall and already I've received emails that are helping me feel welcomed and assured that I can succeed in my graduate program. They encourage me and show me how to get involved with other students in my program, they break down what is expected of me and what routes I can take to receive my degree and they continue to give me different resources to motivate and help me find success. As an incoming freshman 5 years ago I was lucky to have all of those resources and more because I left home thinking I would feel nervous, confused, young and alone. I thrived at ASU and due to the immense support, opportunities and resources offered to me, I graduated with honors for my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with minors in Sociology and African-American studies.
My experience at Arizona State University was better than I expected. I completed my bachelor's degree in social work which was located in the downtown campus. I loved that the classes were smaller and I could really get to know my classmates and instructors. I felt that ASU was always making sure we had everything we needed by giving us a call or emailing us. I felt that ASU really wanted us to succeed.
The degree program is challenging. However I felt some of the upper level nursing courses were a little too easy. It seemed to me that participation counted more than actual quality of work. I did feel that many of the classes were geared more towards innovation which I like and is what ASU sells itself on.
The iTeach program at ASU is a great teacher preparation course. You get a lot of hands on experience that gives you a real look at what it will be like when you graduate and have your own classroom. The Special Education program was a dual-degree so I am also certified in Elementary Education. With the dual program, you get a student teaching placement in each area prior to graduating. When I graduated, I knew I would be successful in running my own classroom thanks to the real life experience I received.
Arizona State University is a great option offering a variety of undergraduate majors and programs. Furthermore, due to the large number of students it also has lots of opportunities for extracurricular and networking with peers. Furthermore, ASU also has myriad resources for students to be successful if one wishes to make use of them, which I strongly encourage. I am excited to graduate from ASU and continue my education with a MS program in Biomedical Informatics!
My experience at Arizona State University was much more than I could have possibly hoped for. The school not only provided me with an excellent education, but it also has gifted me with a worldly view and perspective. Despite being known as a "party school", Arizona State holds itself to the highest standards. Every staff member that I studied under was highly qualified and knowledgable in their field. With nearly 100,000 students, ASU has a very cultured feel. I definitely recommend applying to potential students.
