Grant Crim - 10/11/2019
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2019
"I will be graduating with an Organizational Leadership degree in December 2019 and I could not recommend this program any more highly than I am. It has been an absolute pleasure to continue my studies at Arizona State University's College of Integrative Sciences and Arts after first receiving my Associate's degree in General Studies at my local community college. The professors are so engaging and responsiv to questions or desire for feedback on how to improve. I have so thoroughly enjoyed my education at ASU that I will be continuing on there to pursue my master's degree."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018
"Many years ago, I decided that I wanted to become a Lawyer someday, at first I wasn't relatively sure what category of law I wanted to study. From the time when I was born, I lived on a Native American reservation, the area here is rural, and to be honest, there isn't much to do. I often heard stories from my friends who lived in the city talk about going to the mall, movie theatres, and riding the bus in the metropolitan area where they reside. I was a tad jealous of the closeness and convenience of having these enjoyable places nearby. Bearing in mind that the area where I lived, we just had one grocery store, and a gas station. The nearest town is a twenty-minute drive, which has more than the reservation. However, there still is not a mall in sight. As I grew older, I appreciated my surrounding area more, and valued the beautiful stars that I would see every night, since the region wasnt filled with city lights. I had dreams of one day becoming a Tribal Attorney for my Tribe. To get myself prepared for the future and to gain experience, I took the Tribal bar exam and passed. I accepted a position as an Assistant Public Defender which didnt require a bar license or any specific college education. I began to represent tribal adults and juveniles in Court. Initially, I wasnt knowledgeable of necessary trial skills, so it was a learning process. Eventually, I became comfortable in Court and was extremely thankful for my supervisor, who was a bar licensed Attorney, since she allowed me the opportunity. I was also grateful for my Father, who was a former Domestic Violence Attorney for my Tribe, he assisted on any questions I had. Working at the Public Defender's Office for my Tribe was an excellent opportunity. However, I left my job and wanted to continue with higher education. A couple of years down the road I earned a Bachelor's degree with Arizona State University, and hope to continue Law School with my background and experience. I bring a diverse perspective to ASU Law with my experience working in a tribal government, and being able to represent individuals within my Tribe while not being bar licensed. I am glad that I chose Arizona State University to help pave the way on achieving my goals."

Degree: Food Preparation & Professional Cooking
Graduation Year: 2017
"I did my degree online, which was a huge help because it allowed me to work and complete school at the same time. I think that I did well in the program because I am very self motivated and I am good at time management. If you are someone who needs the accountability of going to a scheduled class, online might not be the best route for you. The instructors were always reachable by email, and they were very helpful if you had any questions. Overall, I felt like ASU did the online experience really well!"

Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2018
"This degree is excellent if you are considering going into the healthcare field to make changes and create new systems to serve the people and the healthcare industry. The degree walks you through creating a new system or innovation idea from the ground up. The classes in the program focus on presenting your idea to stakeholders, how to pitch your idea, implementing the new system in society, and considering other factors such as government policy, financial growth, and making changes throughout the growth of a new system. The course work is beneficial for anyone looking to move up in the healthcare industry from an administrative perspective or anyone looking to start their own business."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"Arizona State University has an amazing undergraduate education with many opportunities to gain experiences outside of the typical curriculum. As an undergraduate in Psychology and in Family and Human Development, I had the opportunity to work in research labs where I gained mentorship in developing a research project, collecting data, analyzing data using statistics, and writing up research papers for publication in scientific journals before I started graduate school. This gave me a huge advantage as I planned to get further education as a graduate student after I earned my undergraduate degrees. I would highly recommend students to consider attending Arizona State University."

"I loved attending ASU! I transferred to ASU from Northern Arizona University (NAU) due to personal reasons and I am thankful that I received the last two years of my education at this university. I had wonderful, attentive, and caring advisors who helped me to make sure that I would succeed. While I had a difficult time with one or two professors, most of the professors that I worked with were fantastic! They were eager to work with any student that was putting effort into their education and made an effort to cater the lessons to their students. The prerequisite classes are quite large, but once you've had the opportunity to specify what major your working on the upper division classes are much smaller and allow for a much more personal atmosphere. My professors helped me to realize what aspects of Ecology I enjoyed and assisted me in finding the right opportunities for gaining experience in that field. ASU is also a large research university that has significant funding for all kinds of projects. Within a week of starting at the university, I was able to find a laboratory that needed volunteers. My lab manager helped me develop new projects and allowed me to explore as much as possible in the lab. He ended up writing me a letter of recommendation and helped me get into graduate school! The resources that ASU has to offer are extensive. They have three campuses and in my experience they really do try to make it as easy as possible to get your education. My experience at ASU was fantastic, but there are a few things that I will encourage those looking into their undergraduate programs and schools to look into: 1.) Don't be scared to ask questions. The advisors and the registrar office are there to help you. This is a large university with a ton of resources, but it ay not be the school for everyone. I had skype meetings and long email chats with many of those in these offices before deciding to enroll. Do your research because you are going to be spending a lot of time and money on your education and you want to make sure that you are confident in your choices. 2.) Not every teacher that you are going to have should be allowed to teach. One of the downfalls of going to a research university is that anyone doing research at this university is also required to teach. Unfortunately, it means that some of the professors suck. These were few and far between at my time at ASU, but they were still there. At first I found this extremely discouraging and thought that it reflected on the university poorly, but as I encountered more and more of the amazing professors that ASU had employed, I realized that it's simply impossible to have the best of the best in everything. If you have a terrible professor for one or two of your classes, I would recommend that you look into the other sections that this class is being offered in, keep your head down and just push through the semester, or go into office hours and make an attempt to develop a relationship with that professor. 3.) Don't limit yourself based on first impressions. ASU has tens of thousands of students, which means they offer a massive variety of classes. Go exploring! Take a humanities class that you would never have imagined would be a class, join a club that will teach you something new. ASU has a lot to offer and going in tunnel visioned or brushing an opportunity off because you didn't like what you saw the first time can put a damper on the experience. I am aware that not every university has the right environment for every student, but I think that ASU is large enough, diverse enough, and dedicated enough to give their students a great education. I loved my time there and I think that it deserves consideration from any student looking for their next step in life."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2011
"I sought this degree as a pre-med student because of the complex nature of microbiology. After completing two years of medical school I was grateful for the vast amount of knowledge I had gained from this undergraduate program in microbiology. Microbiology is one of the most difficult subjects for medical students to master and with this undergraduate degree from Arizona State University I was prepared for the extensive amount of microbiology presented during the basic science years of medical school."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"Many places, hospitals notwithstanding, are requiring more and more education to get hired. I knew acquiring my Bachelor of Science in Nursing would provide more room for growth and opportunities. I have always wanted to continue my nursing education and ASU was honestly just a convenient college for me because I got my Associates in nursing from a partner community college. It was hassle free to do the bridge RN to BSN program and didn't require a bunch of extra courses. It was all online and required mostly papers, group work and being technically savvy. I actually ended up enjoying many of my classes and how they expanded my understanding of a nurses role in many health care fields and enabled me to see the potential in my career. I love what I do and ASU offers programs that enable me to keep chasing my dreams such as through their new Pediatric DNP program! I think if any nurses are looking for a good bridge program for RN to BSN or other advanced nursing degrees ASU is a great school that has both flexible programs and lots of options for focused specialities."

"I began my education at a community college before transferring to ASU. (Side note: If you are looking to transfer to any in-state school, I highly recommend you utilize "aztransfer.com" to ensure that the courses you are taking are actually going to transfer to the university you are transferring to, and you can see *how* it will transfer; ie- my science courses from the community college I attended transferred to ASU as an *elective* and NOT as the science course they actually are.) The issues with the small number of my courses only transferring in as "electives" was the only real problem I have ever had with this school. My academic advisers made it easy for me to understand my degree requirements and taught me how to use the many self service options on MyASU. As an incoming sophomore, I was surprised several of my gen eds had the small class sizes I loved at my community college, and in the one course with ~75 students, I was able to easily connect with my instructor and felt supported and heard. The university goes above and beyond to make sure every student feels supported and has the resources to accommodate every student's needs. There are free shuttles that travel between campuses, which has helped me tremendously in selecting classes and saving time and money by not driving between campuses and paying for parking. Overall, this school helped ease any anxieties or insecurities about affording college and continuing my education. Despite the overwhelming size of the Tempe (main) campus, I still was made to feel like I was still in a smaller school when I entered my classes."

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2019
"My time at Arizona State University has been nothing short of amazing. The instructors I have had the pleasure of meeting are very professional and knowledgeable. I never once had a professor who I felt was unprofessional or a lesson I felt was just a waste of time. The work was at a normal difficulty and the lectures were full of good information. As long as you take notes and study, you set yourself up for success. If you struggle at all, there is multiple resources that Arizona State has to offer you and they will give you a sense of direction in order to find them. You are not alone at Arizona State and the environment around you is encouraging and welcoming. I have met many people throughout my years there that I remain in contact with today. The overall experience I had at Arizona State was positive and amazing. I would recommend this University to anyone looking to have a good social and educational experience. I believe they have a lot to offer anyone and everyone."
