The PhD in Biology at ASU is a thesis-based research degree. Current funding from the School of Life Sciences provides funds during years 1-5 during the Fall and Spring semesters, as well as tuition remission and health insurance coverage year-round. The PhD has few course requirements, which allows the student an opportunity to focus on his or her research projects. Unfortunately, many students take longer than 5 years to complete their PhD, where their funding is no longer guaranteed. Moreover, while the funding during the 9 months of the Fall and Spring semesters is guaranteed, there is no guaranteed funding for the summer months. Both of these concerns lead most graduate students to look to alternative sources of funding in the form of grants or part-time assistantships to support themselves throughout their PhD. While the health insurance coverage provides assistance with basic needs, chronic or severe medical issues, or the financial costs of child rearing may force a student to incur additional debt through loans.
The Professional Flight program at Arizona State University was undergoing a transition at the time. Unfortunately, ASU and their partnered flight school, ATP, did not plan well for incoming students. In reply to this, ASU nixed the requirement for students to receive their CFI certifcations in order to graduate. However, with this said many of the professors in the aviation program are very knowledgable and have a lot of experience in the aviation field from various periods. As far as ATP flight school was concerned, there was both good and poor instruction throughout my traning from both the CFI's and management alike. The degree program has beneficial courses, however keep in mind there are other ways to become a pilot besides a collegiate program. With this said, I am glad I did the Professional Flight program because I was not well-equipped to undergo fight traning independently without University guidance.
I obtained my Bachelor's of Arts in Education in 2002. My program allowed me to student teach for a full year. Through the classes and instructors, I felt I was ready to take my own class. The coursework definitely prepares future teachers to deal with the issues and pressures that educators face. I completed my coursework at the Main Campus in Tempe, beginning my studies in 1999 and graduating in 2002. The instructors were very knowledgeable, caring, and available to assist in any way possible. My professors were very experienced in their field and supportive in sharing their knowledge with their students. My programs at Arizona State University allowed me to be successful in my first year of teaching and it led me to teaching overseas for six years. When I decided to return to school to obtain my graduate degree, I had no qualms in returning to Arizona State University to get it. This time around, I returned to work on my degree online. So far, my online courses have been high quality, with wonderful instructors. If you have a question, they are available to answer and all grading includes feedback. My counselor has been very helpful in guiding me through which classes I need and the order I should take them. My experience with Arizona State University has been nothing but positive. I highly recommend attending Arizona State University for undergraduate and post graduate degrees. Arizona State University has amazing programs, especially in education, that provide high quality education on site or online.
Arizona State University is the best college and I made a great choice by attending this school. I have never had any bad professors or any bad experiences. Everyone here truly cares about your education and they want you to be successful. The classes can be challenging, but that is the best part about it. They offer degrees that are accelerated if you want to dedicate time to pursuing your degree faster.

I received a BA in Art History and a BFA in Painting through the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. My studies consisted of mainly studio art and art history courses taught by renowned professors in their field. They were always very helpful, accessible, and wanted their students to succeed. Not only did they offer a diverse curriculum and variety of classes that covered many art mediums and topics of art history, but the material taught was always intriguing to me. Overall, my experience was very positive, and that is why I am choosing to continue my education at this university as opposed to any others.
Arizona State University encompasses all that I desired in a university. ASU fosters an extremely supportive and excelled learning experience through which I thrived. I would recommend this university to anyone searching for the typical "college experience" as well as a well-rounded education.
Arizona State University is a great school with many amazing professors and research facilities. It is surrounded by the entirety of the greater Phoenix area, so there are so many opportunities for jobs and internships. ASU opens the door to so many possibilities.
The professors I studied under were all extremely knowledgeable and provided me with confidence that I would be entering my field prepared. The courses were all very interesting and provided a well rounded view of the world of Family Studies. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in working with children and families.
I enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I do believe I attended the school for a different reason than my peers. At the time, ASU was a known party school and had a reputation for drinking and partying, not its education. The only reason I attended was because I received a scholarship from the school and it was close to home. Although this was the case, I do not regret my decision the least bit. I actually learned a lot in my major and met some really awesome people.
