Ryan Lugo Gomez - 6/15/2017
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2017
"The Environmental Resource Management degree program was enjoyable and challenging. The classes concerning the engineering portion will either stress you out or give you a learning experience however most students experienced contempt for the engineering professor. The other professors dealt more with policy and science then there were electives that concerned over algae utilized toward commercialization. The algae class was useful in reinforcing engineering concepts alongside learning about assessments and cycles that concern products whether it be algae, biomass, etc. The program is great for students willing to learn diverse topics but not great for specializing as there is minimal topic concerning a single area. There are professional development courses that aid in providing certifications in which you can get the upper edge in job searches. There is an underlying focus on coding or GIS that is slowly becoming essential in environmental careers. Fortunately, ASU proves out GIS courses within different schools in the cost of spending more tuition on these courses. There is a certification regarding GIS but it appears anonymous experts tell you to spend your free time learning how to utilize GIS as a secondary skill versus learning it as your primary skill. The program isnt the only environmental major as there are environmental engineering degrees and environmental study degrees available at ASU. The school atmosphere at the polytechnic campus is very relaxing with mostly Asians, Indians, and whites encompassing the campus. The campus can feel empty during the night and feel busy during the day; the morning however, can vary in activity. Overall, I would suggest this school if you like to engage in various communities and experience various degrees while having fun."

"ASU is a great university with a myriad of opportunities that can accommodate just about anything a student desires to accomplish. The faculty is great and the curriculum really prepared me well for my career. I think the networking opportunities are second to none and if you take advantage of all ASU has to offer, there are no doubts you can get to where you want to be."

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"I am excited to return to ASU as a graduate student this year! Earning my BAE in 2016 was a great accomplishment where I was fortunate to receive an education full of hands on experiences, well educated and adapted professors, and a diverse student body. After a year in my career, I know ASU prepared me to be a well educated professional. When choosing a graduate school, there was no doubt in returning to this pristine university which holds educators and students to a high standards. Go Devils!"

Lilliana Garcia - 6/7/2017
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015
"Since grade school I envisioned gaining higher education. It was a topic that was lightly introduced to children but teachers would not spend much time exploring educational paths with students. I attended a public school in a low income community. Coming from a family with no college background, my parents expected their children to take advantage of the education opportunities. And her I am as an ASU graduate student pursuing my graduate degree. The experience at ASU has remained similarly between undergraduate and graduate programs. I had an overall good experience with instructors and their quality of teaching. In social work, teachers know their material, and also have field experience being real social workers. The BSW curriculum in Social Work, sets the foundation for the major with opportunity to specialize in a concentration. The university has a diverse student body. In my experience, students are friendly and willing to help you. The campus has adequate security that offers safety in campus during the day and night. The ASU downtown campus in particular, is well lit and appears safe to students with night class sessions. Financial services are available to all students in-person and online. My experience as an undergraduate student inspired me to continue my education at ASU and pursue a graduate degree in Social Work. I enrolled in the the graduate program in 2016 and have an expected date for graduation of May 2018."

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2014
"I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and if you're pursuing a career in physical, occupational, or cardiac therapy I highly recommend this program. The classes could be challenging but that is a good thing because you it forces you to learn in order to keep up. Probably the most positive aspect of this degree are the professors. They are always willing to sit down and talk and help explain anything that you may not understand. Overall, i felt that this program prepared me well for pursuing graduate school."

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!"

"Although it is an extremely large campus, Arizona State University is a place where people are able to find their niche and truly feel at home. From job opportunities, volunteer experiences, and study abroad options, they make students feel welcomed within the diverse environment. The ability to join Barrett, The Honors College is a definite perk of the school. This program entails completing an honors thesis, taking honors classes, and making contracts with professors to complete additional assignments. Working on campus, volunteering around Phoenix, studying abroad in England, studying abroad in Chile, being a member of Barrett, and defending my honors thesis were all wonderful opportunities I had in my four years at this university. I changed my major multiple times, had my favorite teachers, had teachers I did not enjoy as much, made great friends, and got involved on campus which are all possible at many universities around the globe. ASU is different from many of these other programs though because of the countless variety of opportunities available on each of their campuses."
