"This is a great school with a beautiful campus and got a job straight out of college. I really enjoyed my college experience and definitely have been the best four years of my life ! Only downfall is how expensive it is but apply for every scholarship and they help a lot. Have a great time at the best school in AZ"

"Overall, my experience was okay. I felt like the professors were there just to earn a paycheck, and weren't really interested in teaching and helping the students. The atmosphere is also very boring and standard. They have excellent facilities, classrooms, technology, etc. However, they lack substance and quality instructors."

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2009
"Arizona State is great in that it offers countless options for studies/majors and minors of all sorts for those who are not certain of what they wish to pursue. You can major in one area like engineering and minor or double major in something completely different like music or foreign language. The only downside is that although there is a wide selection, it felt like certain areas were more shallow and weaker than a school with more specialization towards fewer disciplines."

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014
"ASU is overall a good school. It lacks the "old world" prestige that many top-notch professors are looking for, and its size gives it a reputation as poor quality. However, ASU's size and subsequent income gives it the ability to offer a lot of merit scholarships and financial aid, and to offer degrees in new and innovative subjects, like sustainability or public service. Inter-department collaboration is pretty outstanding. As long as you don't mind that the school is run like a business, it's a great place to get a degree."

"Great school, awesome professors. The campus is beautiful and more peaceful than Tempe. It has more of a small school vibe which I really liked."

"Overpriced, but can't do much without it. Pick a major that actually makes money, and use your other interests as hobbies. You will never have a job that makes money and makes you happy, take one that you can stand going to work, and perhaps is rewarding if you are lucky."

"It's a good college for certain degrees, but not for others. They seem to have a good nursing and business program. A negative is in-state students still have to live on campus their freshman year with very few exceptions, which is counter-productive for those trying to save money by going to a college in-state."

Be prepared to teach yourself - 9/6/2015
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016
"The early courses are structured well enough to get you committed. After the first full semester you begin to see the true colors of the program. There is very little teaching going on, the majority of programming classes give you a pile of information or a couple of links to online manuals and expect you to build code out of it once a week. If you are lucky you can access other materials online, some courses are teaching PLP which is a learning platform that appears to exist only at ASU. I would steer clear of this program knowing what i know now. Math courses were surprisingly well taught for what its worth."

"Finances are horrible at the school. They will steal you blind. Account for every penny and make sure you have everything well documented. Use emails instead of calling. Online experience is reat for the first class then the quality degrades as you advance in your college degree."
