The teachers at the school are very supportive and there are tons of opportunities to meet people and make connections. You can get involved in hundreds of different clubs, organizations, volunteer opportunities, internships, and job opportunities. The honors college gives me the sense of being in a small college but I also am connected to the larger school opportunities and people. I have met so many amazing people at this school and there's just so many ways to improve your education. I never feel at a loss for something to do, study, or participate in on campus.
Arizona State University stretches across four campuses and online. The best part? Students, regardless of major, can take classes anywhere! During a semester, I was unable to be on campus but did not have to stop taking courses because I was able to use the online platform to learn. When college dorm living because to expensive and I moved home, I was able to take classes on the campuses closest to me even though my major was housed on the main campus. ASU is a place to learn, make friends, get involved, create networks, and build memories. I highly encourage anyone to attend Arizona State University.
The Materials Engineering program at Arizona State is very rigorous. but is also a rewarding program. The program does a good job of focusing on mechanical and electrical properties of materials at are beneficial for not only the overall knowledge of the student but also for their employment opportunities. This directly benefits many companies in the local phoenix area, such as Intel, NXP, ON Semiconductor, as well as many other companies from a multitude of industries that need Materials Engineers to produce superior products for the market place. The instruction could be improved, there is way to much emphasis in many classes is on test taking rather than actual application, which I feel application in the form of small projects is more applicable if one is going into industry. Also one thing about the over all curriculum that could be improved is in the middle of the junior year allow students pathway courses for specific material they are interested in. For instance if a student interested in polymers, ceramics, metals, bio-materials or semiconductors have courses that specific to those classes of materials. All that aside the program as whole is very good in comparison with other schools and the graduate program is one of the best in the country, I would recommend the program to anyone interested in pursuing Materials Engineering.
The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Arizona State University is a great program for students interested in a career in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and computation mathematics. However, students wanting to enter a field of theoretical research may want to look elsewhere. A vast majority of the faculty is interested in applied mathematics, and theoretical classes are not offered adequately for many undergraduate students. I am studying applied mathematics, however, and am very satisfied with my experience in the SOMSS.
The iTeach program that I was in at ASU was great. It was very thorough and went through many different teaching methods and contents. The best part of the program was the full year of student teaching. Without that, I would not have been as prepared to teach as I was. The way that the program is set up is why I have an issue. We were in a cohort that met for our classes at an elementary school. My classes were in a kindergarten room with too small chairs. The chairs aside, the reason I was disappointed was the lack of opportunities to be on campus. My campus life was nonexistent. I never got the sense of college unity or pride from my fellow members in my cohort. ASU is a college that I am proud to come from and it is why I chose to return for my Graduate program. I wish I could say the same for the rest of my cohort.
Arizona State University (ASU) has a plethora of resources available at a students fingertips. There are immense amounts of opportunities: student organizations, flexibility of scheduling classes, and the well-established academic department. All of these can allow a student to thrive academically, personally and professionally growth. The challenging aspect of being an ASU student is navigating the sometimes overwhelming amount of stimuli the campus offers. Because of its mere size, its difficulty to know about all the resources the university offers.
ASU has a terrible reputation. However, it truly does not deserve it, at least not anymore. I went to ASU originally because they offered me the best financial aid package. I do not regret it one bit. From the start ASU works to engage students on every aspect campus life. They put a lot of effort into making students feel like the campus is a lot smaller than it is by encouraging students to join clubs and get involved. This effort was the first stand out aspect and one that continued with me as I moved through various leadership roles at ASU as result. The classes are what you make of them. If you choose to pursue a rigorous academic schedule, you can find it here. The professors are generally wonderful and want to help students whether it be regarding classwork or career choices. I had never had a professor tell me that they could not help me. There are also a lot of interesting research opportunities. The number 1 in innovation became a bit of a meme, but it is true. ASU is on the cutting edge of everything from biomedical to politics. If I could do it again, I would.
I love ASU online. I transferred from a school that I didn't even think my credits would transfer from, and ASU online has been the most amazing program for me. I work in Public Health in California, and just love the flexibility, and set up of this program. I have recommended it to several people looking to get their bachelors. I already want to get my masters from ASU.
Attending ASU was such an amazing and valuable experience that I will always cherish. The instructors and courses available really added to the overall positive experience as well as the diversity of the school. What I think is special about ASU is how innovative it is and the amount of students there are - you meet so many people from around the country/world and that helps you open your mind to other ideas. I had the fondest memories going to class and challenging myself. In my experience, the instructors and advisors were always available and eager to assist with almost everything. ASU is a great school!
Arizona State University has a diverse student body. It accepts students from multiple backgrounds, both international and domestic. The staff and faculty at the Hugh Downs School for Communication are knowledgeable in their field with a passion to teach. Whether it is teaching a specific topic a professor has researched or a course the program requires students to take, there is always an open door policy to have one on one interactions with the instructors. The university has a large campus with numerous amenities, both recreational and academic, to make it more comfortable for students living on campus. Likewise, students who commute are also offered the same services to help them thrive during their college career and adjust to post-secondary education. The Hugh Downs School's advisers are knowledgeable and extremely helpful when it comes to answering questions about staying on track for graduation. Overall, the institution offers a safe and friendly environment for students while still encouraging a level of professionalism and academic achievement.
