Ten years ago, I received my Associates degree from a local community college. Being stuck in a career field that I disliked motivated me to look at going back to school to get my Bachelors Degree in a field that I care about. I looked at the 3 big schools here in Arizona - NAU, UofA and ASU. After reading about ASU's innovation and its ideals about a sustainable future, I knew that this was the school for me.
My experience has been nothing but pleasant with ASU. Being 10 years out of the loop on how to go about being a college student again, I had a LOT of questions for the admissions, financial aid and advising departments. Everyone was so helpful and I am very grateful for this as I was so nervous about going back to school! So far I am absolutely enjoying my courses, professors and fellow classmates. It is wonderful to be a part of shaping the future.
Being from Arizona, my ultimate choice to attend ASU was at first, something I was ashamed of. With ASU's reputation as a large state 'party' school and nothing more, I was not pleased that my financial situation only allowed me to attend ASU.
However, ASU, and its faculty and staff, have proven me wrong on every misconception I had. ASU, although large, fosters a sense of community and offers so much student support that you get the sense of a smaller, private university. ASU offers an abundance of student organizations to get involved with, numerous resources for career/internship exploration, and is great at helping you narrow down your interests to pick the right major and pursue relevant opportunities.
Additionally, ASU is a leading university in terms of research, and undergraduates have the opportunity to participate in research from the very start of their academic careers. This is not to be taken lightly, as most universities reserve such research opportunities for graduate students only.
I am barely a freshman here in Arizona State University and I have enjoyed every moment. Teachers, CA's, and just people in general are friendly. If you need help with anything, there is no way to get lost or behind because everyone is there to help you with whatever you need. They are just a phone call away or an email away. I extremely recommend this university for its enthusiasm at football games but more importantly, the memories you make while receiving your education.
I am in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at ASU. ASU is a good school if you are from the state of Arizona. If you are out-of-state, which I am, then it's not the best choice. It has been my experience that ASU does not offer a lot of scholarship options. If you are trying to get residency at ASU, you have to live in the state of Arizona for 2 years plus be financially independent for 2 years, which if you have a parent helping you pay for school, you will not be considered financially independent.
Also, in the Mary-Lou Fulton Teachers College, if you are a special, elementary, or early education major, you are required to student teacher full-time, 40 hours a week for free for a whole year. This is tough for many ASU students as they do not have the luxury to not earn income for a whole year. The professors I have at ASU are wonderful and very helpful, but it has been a tough 3 years financially for me attending ASU, with very little help or guidance from the university.
I feel confidence that because of my education, I will be the best teacher I am capable of doing. ASU has provided me with interning and student teaching experiences that other schools do not.
While there were some classes where communication among instructors was an issue, for the most part I feel that I had teachers who cared about my success. I have learned concepts I will be able to apply to my career, and I learned them from teachers who really cared about me as a student and as an individual.
I love attending ASU, more than I actually thought I would. They have four campuses and the teachers are always willing to help.
There are tons of options for research, assistants, and even campus jobs. I've been working in the student success center as a tutor in English and Math.
I would highly recommend going here if you have the option
I feel that Arizona State has some advantages and some disadvantages. In my prerequisites, I felt the classes were big and it was hard to get to know the professors, but the professors generally are all very intelligent and eager to teach.They tend to be open to questions as well.
In my nursing program here at ASU, I feel the classes are specific and very educational. The professors are easy to talk to and the classes are generally enjoyable. I love the clinicals that I have had the opportunity to go to as well.
I am currently a senior at Arizona State University and obtaining an online degree for a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice. This accredited institution has been a great accomplishment and I am very happy that I invested my money and time in this school.
The instructors strictly enforce a great quality of instruction, there are numerous amounts of student services, and the courses always exceed my expectations. In addition, the school has provided opportunities, such as honor societies and community services to stay involved.
The cost of tuition is very reasonable, because there are many services available to students and it they have benefited me everyday. Most importantly, instructors are very cooperative, insightful, prompt, and always willing to help. There are many degrees to choose from and each provide an in-depth approach to understand every concept to successfully succeed in those areas.
