"I would highly recommend attending Arizona State University. While attending this college, you will feel like apart of a family, and your teachers will take interest in you and want to help you succeed. Throughout my college experience here, I have been able to connect with others in my future field and create a network that will guarantee me a job in my desired field. ASU will prepare you to take on the work force in your desired field and help you make the connections needed to get there."

  • Degree: English
"The classes and professors are all really great. There are many diverse options to study basically any type of literature. My only complaint about the program is the lack of the ability to specialize your English degree online. If you are studying on campus, you have the ability to choose to study English Literature or Linguistics or whatever, but one online English degree is the same as the next."

"I was very satisfied with my experience at Arizona State University. Prior to coming to this school I attended another State University and was not satisfied with the experience. Once I moved to Arizona State University I was surprised at how at ease I felt. The staff and faculty were helpful and welcoming. The school offered several resources. I liked that I could use different libraries and study areas around the university, with computers and printers available. The university also provides a shuttle service for current students who want to travel to different campuses. This service is handy if you are interested in taking courses or attending events at other campuses. I enjoyed the diversity the school offers. I think it is important to have a higher representation of other nationalities. Specially because I am Mexican-American and feel more comfortable in an environment that promotes diversity. The school also has student job opportunities and allows students to hold a job while attending school full-time. These opportunities provide networking and future job options. I think the University provides students with the right foundation for preparing them to go out and succeed in the workplace. It also gives students the options to travel through study abroad programs, volunteer work, and jobs. Overall this is a great school to experience all aspects of college life and proper preparation your future."

"I received two BS Degrees from ASU in May 2016 and am currently enrolled in their Doctorate of Audiology program with a graduation date of May 2020. ASU has provided me with great opportunities for research and internships. The professors have all been very supportive and accessible. They WANT you to succeed and it's evident in their classes and support. I had the opportunity to go to an Ivy league for graduate school and chose to stay at ASU because of the level of education and the top ranking in the field of graduates for Audiology."

"I thought the degree program was great. It was very focused on the cultural aspect of teaching as well as technology integration. It was very helpful going into the career field and preparing myself to be an educator so that I could learn to understand the students point of view as well as their connections between literature and the real world. I would recommend ASU to anyone. Although the campus may seem large and intimidating, the class sizes were small and manageable and I felt like home in my program."

"When choosing a university in the United States, there are many factors to consider: quality of education, availability of courses, variety of opportunities for jobs and research at the university and at nearby businesses, available social groups, clubs, and sports, facilities, cost and financial aid opportunities, and after-university prospects. Arizona State University offers an excellent value for all of these considerations. Due to the large size of the university, they are able to offer a large variety of quality educational programs and many opportunities to go beyond the classroom, including access to internships on-campus or valuable networking to find opportunities in industry and at other universities. The education that I received at Arizona State University has served me well, providing me with skills I continue to use, including the ability to learn, study, and solve problems. I have also been able to competitively seek national scholarship opportunities, admission into selective graduate programs, and desirable entry-level positions in industry."

"I have been very impressed with ASU since transferring from UNC (Chapel Hill, NC). That is right. One of the premier state universities in America. I am puzzled who writes bad reviews here; Oh yea, probably a student who did not study and failed out. ASU offers spectacular online classes and instructors. Some of my instructors are nationally recognized authors, web designers (Pearson), and ubiquitous editors. Some college courses will be easier than others, like ANY institution, because students accelerate at different subjects and task. ASU is very personable via email and phone. Anytime I have had an issue the instructors have responded and answered my questions or helped me. I live in North Carolina and have visited the campus in Tempe. It was a beautiful campus. I do not know of any other colleges who do not charge for parking and hidden fees in tuition. Quit crying about tuition prices. Do you want welfare for everything?"

"Every single course I have taken online at ASU is 7.5 weeks. That's half the time of a normal semester. Taking two classes is a full load. Once you get into your 3 physics courses, 3 calculus courses, and off to the EE program, you'll find that every class flies through the information and leaves you with the bill. These are incredibly hard courses, that you'll spend most of your time teaching yourself, and spending long hours at your computer. By the time you reach you upper classes you have flown through so much material that every class becomes more and more daunting. If these courses were the standard 16 week courses, I might recommend them, but I can't stress it hard enough, that the 7.5 week course format makes it impossible to be a great student and help you reach your potential. If you really want to do this, do yourself a favor, sign up for a mini-mester calculus class at your local community college, and see how you fair. It will never be easier than that, and it progressively gets harder and harder with every course."

"If you are interested in getting a Master's degree in Statistics where you are always analyzing real world data, then this program is not for you. This program is more theory focused and you only practice what you learn on book designed data, this unless you take classes in another departments were their level of applications of Statistics is high and it is very useful"

"If you are looking for the affordability of quality education but don't want to get yourself into debt do so. Arizona State University is the place you may want to consider. Arizona State is one of those schools that accepts everyone, because they believe everyone deserved a great education. Which I believe is true. Everyone has equal opportunities to stand out as an exceptional individual. You just have to strive for it. Arizona State University is a school that is a return on investment. It is a school that offers all sorts of opportunities for its' students. You will get what you put into your own education so make it count with Arizona State University."

"The Spirit Airlines of colleges. ASU baits you with their initial price, but you will pay a lot more. ASU up sells for everything. The marketplace and bookstore's prices are ridiculously overpriced. They are also greedy by charging students to pay in their parking garages. They even charge to play intramural sports! Watch for speed traps. The cops will even write you up for jaywalking. It's not just the greediness of ASU, but also what you get for your money. Instructors can be rude and sleazy, the quality of the dining hall food is atrocious, and the school is not great in one particular academic field. The advisors are always clogged with appointments; you'll have to wait up to a month just to meet with them, and most of them are incompetent. Some of the housing us unlivable and the housing employees are lazy. With ASU not being a household academic name, I would definitely spend more money not only for a better name, but for better service."

"As an adult returning to college to complete my degree in special education I found the program and courses that were offered by Arizona State to be superb and and the instructors to be knowledgeable in their craft. I feel that I left the program fully prepared to be a special education teacher in Arizona. I am now returning to ASU this semester to complete my Masters in Educational Leadership, so I can become a principal. I am excited for what lies ahead for me at Arizona State and in the future as an educator and administrator."

"My program was okay, ASU was such a huge campus. Unfortunately I did not get the one on one I needed. My advisor was not the best, and I found myself taking classes I did not need. I ultimately ended up wasting a lot of time and money, because I was wrongly directed. nonetheless this was a huge learning experience."

"My degree program so far has portrayed the highest degree of professionalism and knowledge. The curriculum is extensive, even though the time is very short. This makes the program extremely rigorous, however the faculty are very helpful and approachable. Not only are the faculty members knowledgeable, but they have also had real life experiences that have added tremendously to the program."

"ASU's biomedical engineering (BME) program is one of the best across the nation (and expanding worldwide). You can't beat the knowledge and experience that the professors and staff have. It's truly amazing how everyone is there to help you succeed and how they want you to succeed. Not only are their industry connections vast, the potential for jobs after graduation are astounding. The personal advising that any one of the professors can give you is life changing. I know this review sounds ridiculous, but you get out what you put into the program, and if you give it 100%, it'll give back to you."

"Arizona State University is doing the best it can to prepare students for future careers in their fields. However, many of their courses/professors are outdated, which makes students less than ideally prepared for their careers. This may have just been my experience, but I was unable to utilize my degree immediately after graduation, despite what their promotional content suggests."

"Arizona State University has embarked on a complete revamping of their image over the past 10 years or so. The once perennial top 10 party school of the USA is now a formidable competitor to private schools with household names such as Stanford, Harvard, MIT, etc. in the fight to enroll the most gifted minds for the future. ASU is now a notably recognized research institution with affordable tuition rates because of its public standing. It has been rated as the number one school for innovation by the U.S. News and World Report for 2016, ahead of both Stanford University and MIT. ASU has equipped itself to both grow as a research university and as a shaper of young and eager minds. With money to spend, ASU has already begun to attract the top researchers and lecturers in all fields. The institution, as of this year, boasts four Nobel Laureate faculty as well as the best ranked honors college in the nation. These facts, combined with the influx of talented lecturers and researchers, will no doubt lead ASU to become one of the top destinations for brilliant minds in the future. As a student of ASU, I gained the knowledge and connections that will make me successful in the future. The professors and staff are always helpful. The programs and their curriculum are rigorous, but not discouraging. In my own studies, I excelled because of ASU's resources for success. I was welcomed into research labs and extracurricular organizations with open arms, all of which helped me obtain three internships during school, two in STEM and one in business. My experiences at ASU will undoubtedly lead to success in my career, and, best of all, my pockets were not completely dried up in the meantime."

"I have had a great experience with Arizona State University thus far. I thought that taking classes only online would be difficult, but the staff at ASU make it easy to understand and provide plenty of helpful information to help students learn the material. The academic advisors, tech help, and those working in the financial aid department are always ready and willing to help answer any questions you have. They really go above and beyond the call of duty."

"I was a non-traditional student. I originally started school left and then came back a few years later. ASU was at the cutting edge at the time by offering a wide variety of classes online which really enabled me to be able to pursue my degree full time while also working full time and supporting my family. The classes at ASU were much more affordable than the other online options that were out there at the time. The undergraduate psychology program was manageable enough while working full time, I do wish I had better guidance on which classes to take to help me earn my degree quicker and also better guidance on some of the classes I could have taken at community college that would have filled some requirements while also saving money."

"The MSBA (Master's of Science in Business Analytics) at Arizona State University is a rigorous and demanding program. Pre-existing knowledge of statistics, some computer savvy, and a significant amount of personal drive is required to navigate successfully. Career services will work with you from day one, on everything from resume workshops to interview coaching. They take great pride in not only how well their students are able to work through curriculum, but also their success after graduation. As a graduate of the program, you will have a good grasp of the newest data analytic techniques and how to apply them in industry-specific projects. Private sector businesses are very involved in students' capstone projects and many are able to graduate with a job from the company they interfaced with. The MSBA program is truly worth the time and monetary investment if you are looking to jumpstart your career in data analysis and application!"
