Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2009

The Arizona State University W.P. Carey School of Business Supply Chain Management program is excellent. It is consistently ranked in the top 5 for supply chain programs. They provide classes in most supply chain functional areas as well as an excellent elective in supply chain optimization. I was very prepared for my internship which led to full-time employment. Everyday I use the knowledge gained in my undergraduate studies. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to break in to supply chain.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall pretty average university, not that I have a lot of comparable experiences. I think there are some really great professors and classes that I would say were above the average but for the most part an average university. Some colleges had more friendly advisors and professors but I think that is to be expected of any university.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

ASU is a great school. The campus is well designed and has a relaxed feel. I just wished I could find a job with a Bachelor's Degree. I'm slowly learning I need a master's in my field to find a job. The School of Geography is excellent and I had very competent teachers.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoyed ASU's iTeachAZ program. It gave me the opportunity to gain quality experience in the field I would be entering and it allowed an adequate amount of hands on instruction. One full year of student teaching really prepared me for my career. It helped to have a mentor for a whole school year to see what the start and finish of a school year would look like. I felt better prepared having a years worth of hands on application versus only getting 15 weeks of hands on experience. my class schedule was on a Tuesday/Thuesday basis which allowed for me to still be employed during my major coursework. This is important because maintaining a job during year long student teaching was tough so I was able to save up money by still being able to work. ASU's curriculum ensured that the teachers they were preparing learned the most up to date information that would be applied immediately upon securing a teaching job.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2013

From 2010-2013, the Sustainability program at ASU was still very new, and therefore contained broad and general studies. You were able to choose your own courses and this included pulling courses from outside of the School of Sustainability and producing a strong justification of why the course fit in with your studies. There were pros and cons to this method. A few pros were that because of the eclectic nature of the degree, many courses outside of the school could be counted toward the degree. It offered many options and could be catered toward each student's particular interests. The cons to this wide-ranging program, was that it lacked a certain amount of direction. Though this may be a positive aspect for some students, I wished there was more direction and requirements within a certain track and less elective course options. Since I graduated from this program, it has become more focused and expectations more clear. A science component has also been added to help create a better understanding of the environmental pieces. Overall, I am glad that I pursued the program. It was a great program to kick off my career in International Development, and continues to be modified each year to better prepare students for the workforce in these areas.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015

Not to completely do a plug for my university, but Arizona State University boasts the largest student population in the Western Hemisphere. It is a diverse university with four (4) campuses in the Valley of the Sun and a immense online network. President Crow has transformed the university, promising a new stadium, a multitude of new dorm and living options and making a university town out of downtown Tempe, AZ. I think my experience comes on the cusp of ASU turning into a great university. My first degree attained at ASU was a Pre-Health and Psychology BA. The positives I experienced during my time in these programs were the internship and research opportunities, the drafting of prestigious professors, and a strong community. The network of extra-curricular activities, clubs, and events were endless. Returning to ASU for a Finance BS at the W.P. Carey School of Business was a much more focused attempt at academic achievement. The W.P. Carey is one of the schools at ASU that prepares learners for the real-world and professional development. Some of my favorite professors were L and S. Both had immense experience as professors and in the business realm. The negatives about ASU from my experiences are the varying level of interest from students to learn, standard of education varying due to priorities of professors, and the potential for your area of interest to not have the backing compared to the heavy hitters like Engineering. If you are interested in attending ASU, you will find the Business and Engineering School really prepare you for a future career and the STEM area majors will have very extensive research opportunities. Beyond the classroom being a Sun Devil means there will always be opportunity to celebrate. I would recommend ASU to anyone looking to get a public education in a place where is it always summer.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

Since Arizona State is such a big school, your academic experience will depend on where you take your classes and what program you are in. I was a part of a smaller major and felt that my education in my major was excellent. However, some of the larger majors often feel "lost" in the crowds of people. I think that the smaller your major, the better your experience will be. The campus you are on will also make a difference. My classes were mostly downtown and I appreciated the smaller campus feel. Tempe is much larger and it is easy to feel lost, in classes as well as on campus.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2006

I felt as though Arizona State University was an innovative and well organized university. I attended the Herberger College of Fine Arts. They had great advisors that helped me formulate a plan for my success. While it has been some time since I attend ASU, I still believe that they prepared me well in my degree choice and I was employable the moment I graduated.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2007

ASU had a good curriculum for a Biology major. The teachers were excellent and I enjoyed all my classes. There's an active social scene and the campus is proud of their sport teams.
