Student & Graduate Reviews (257)
I had an excellent experience completing my undergraduate degree at ASU. Being a part of the nursing school, we were offered small class sizes that allowed for better learning opportunities and a chance to develop lifelong relationships with our instructors and peers. I would highly recommend ASU nursing school for anyone looking to enter the healthcare field!
I was a transfer student from NAU where I began my bachelor's degree in psychology. When I transferred to Arizona State University I attended the main Tempe campus. I loved the professors and classes, but the campus itself was a little too big for me. The students were also not very friendly. I finished my degree at the west campus which was may more my speed. It was smaller and friendlier. Overall a great experience.
Arizona State University has a variety of programs both online and on campus that are diverse and also affordable. While working towards my Bachelors degree I was able to take elective classes that I found to be interesting. This made my education process a wonderful experience. Overall their advisors and aid personal have always been helpful and avalible for questions or concerns.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent at ASU, and I feel as if it prepared me to go straight into a career, or continue my education. My professors at ASU were especially helpful in guiding me to be prepared for my future. I took many classes, all which were extremely interesting, even if they weren't necessarily something that I was pursuing.
Arizona State University has been an excellent experience and opportunity. I majored in Secondary Education and have been very happy with my experience in the Mary Lou Fulton's Teachers College and the iTeach program. I have been impressed with the passion, knowledge, and care that the majority of my professors brought to class each and every day. The MLFTC sets up multiple internships so every aspiring teacher has hundreds of hours of classroom experience and hands-on learning by the time they graduate. I have been happy with my educational experience in the MLFTC at ASU and I feel prepared to embark on a career as an educator.
The Cronkite School effectively prepares students for careers in communications as it trains its students in a variety of skills and multimedia talents. There is an emphasis on broadcast, in response to its namesake, and public relations students are a little neglected. However, the director of the public relations program, Dr. Fran Matera, creates valuable and diverse opportunities for her students to support them and allow them to succeed.
Arizona State University is a great school to attend for a bachelors degree, either on campus or online! I started taking classes on campus at ASU West and the professors there are great! Because class sizes are small, you get to have more interaction with your professors. Having more interaction with the professor means getting more help in the class, which should be taken advantage of. Even though ASU West is the smallest campus, it is the most peaceful, beautiful and safest campus around! Students can roam around the campus during the day or night without any problems. When you walk around you get to hear all the birds singing, thats how calm it is when you walk to class! Everyone who works there is super kind and helpful. You can be talking to either the people at Financial Aid or the maintenance workers at the dorms and they are all really nice! When you have a problem with your MyASU account, computer, dorm, or even with your homework the faculty and staff are there to help. After noticing that I had trouble concentrating and learning in class during my first year, I started taking the online degree program at ASU. When I began taking it, I felt focused and I was ready to learn. The online program is the best thing that happened to me! I was able to do my work without a problem and at my own pace! Even if youre taking classes online, the professors are great! If you have trouble getting all your notes in class, taking online is best because you can watch lectures again. Although you dont get that face to face interaction with professors or students, you can still communicate with them in emails, posts, or voice chat. I truly enjoyed being on campus and taking the online degree program at ASU! I highly recommend attending ASU for you bachelors degree, whether on campus or online!
Arizona State University (ASU) is where I completed my second bachelor's degree, in nursing. My first degree was in biology. Compared to The Ohio State University (OSU), where I completed my first degree, my experience at ASU was easily ten-fold better, and I'll tell you why in the following review. Navigating the college process from registering for classes, deciding on electives, figuring out aid/scholarships, and determining which materials are actually needed (versus those that are just "suggested") can be daunting. At ASU the nursing professors and academic staff were prompt with replies to questions, and always provided my cohort with all materials needed to navigate the entire program successfully. I never had that at OSU, we all just kinda few by the seat of our pants without guidance, and I wound up having to stay an extra quarter to graduate, simply due to a class availability issue that would have been prevented with adequate academic counseling. At ASU, they literally ensured that you knew exactly what classes you needed by when to graduate on time, and they would help you with every single step, no question asked. There was never any doubt that I was on the right track; I always knew who I could contact with any questions or concerns, and they always got back to me promptly. In addition to the outstanding academic support, ASU has one of the best reviewed nursing programs in the country. This is due to their amazing simulation labs that allow prospective nursing students to practice real-life nursing scenarios, with exact equipment you'll be using in the field, and with high-tech manikins that can "react" to different scenarios/ outcomes. It's safe place to make mistakes and learn from them, before you enter the hospital. Finally, I've been working over the last two years after graduating with my Bachelor's in Nursing (BSN) on neurology & trauma unit at Level One Trauma Center; I've found that my friends from school and I were more prepared and well-equipped to handle the transition into the hospital work environment. Many new graduate nurses struggle the first year, and it is by no means a cake-walk, even for those who are well-prepared. However, I found that my educational experience at ASU had me answering questions from my fellow new grads on the floor; while my superiors were impressed with the level of understanding I brought to the job as new graduate. I literally knew a lot more about nursing than they did from the get go, from cardiac medications, to IV fluid compatibility, to how to talk to doctors on the phone regarding patients. This by far was the strongest indicator that I attended the best nursing program compared to other programs in the area. It may not be the cheapest, but it is by far the best; which is why I am now planning on attending ASU for my doctoral level nursing degree.
As a full time employee, student, and family member, the online Educational Studies program allowed the flexibility I needed to return to college after a twenty year absence. The content and thinking processes associated with the degree increased my knowledge about 21st century thinking and life skills necessary to succeed in today's world. The degree opens opportunities outside the classroom that are rewarding and fulfilling. Professors were respectful, helpful, and communicated at a professional level. I would recommend this degree to others seeking an education degree but would like to expand outside the classroom walls.
I would recommend Arizona State Universitys innovative online education to anyone. My experience has been nothing less than exceptional, quick, and engaging. Their online education is very user-friendly; even for those who are less tech-savvy. Online interactions between instructors, staff, students, and technical support allowed me to maintain a professional and personal life outside of my education. I was able to continue a set work schedule, with little to no interruption during my time as a student. Being an online student is convenient and provides flexibility, however, you have to be organized and self-motivated. There are many resources available for Arizona State University students and online students are no exception. When in doubt, refer to your helpful advisor. They are quick to respond and full of surprising tricks and suggestions to ensure student success.
