"Arizona State University (ASU) is a college that is known for its partying. While that may be appealing or make you look at different options, thats not all it is about. ASU has some great educational programs and with more than one campus to choose from you have plenty of different options on where to choose your classes. In my time, I started my degree at the West Campus for a smaller, close knit campus. Then moved on to Tempe when I was comfortable and wanted more classes to choose from. One of my tips to any one pursuing their education with ASU is to read and understand your program check sheet. This is important. The more you understand it the less time you will waste taking classes that dont meet your needs. Know your goals and choose electives accordingly. By fully understanding my syllabus, I was able be better prepared when choosing my classes and able to get into the classes I needed the moment they opened. ASU has registration times base on last names and programs. This is so their systems dont crash from the sheer amount of students on all at once. Knowing your classes early will make it so that when your time is ready, you just go in, add to cart and get enrolled. Dont let the partying fool you, ASU is more in depth and valuable than that."

"Arizona State University like all institutions has their flaws but I am happy with the education which they provided. Other than certain issues with the senior design project they need to work out I had an amazing experience with the classes and faculty. Highly recommend getting an internship, that is not something I did and a huge regret of mine. Really take time to look through your funding opportunities and never be scared to ask questions."

"The Music Ed Dept is truly phenomenal. Fantastic professors and program.I highly recommend it. Campus parking is so outrageous that I paid less in Boston. The Financial Aid Office is the worst I've seen, and this is my 4th degree from 4 Institutions."

"My experience at Arizona State was a great experience. ASU has one of the top if not the top enrollment numbers in the country. What is cool about Arizona State is that it isn't just in one place. The school has its main campus in Tempe right on the lake, surrounded by student life, and lots of entertainment, but it also has satellite campuses all around the valley. They have every major you can think of, and will set you up to fulfill your dreams. My degree was great because it allowed me to study many different topics and make a degree out of them all. I feel more well rounded and experienced because of my interdisciplinary degree."

"I went to Arizona State University! The downtown campus to be exact. Arizona State has a very good program that allows students to find their way in their programs before graduation. Before completing my degree it was required of all students in my small school to complete 200 hours of internship work before graduating. We also needed a internship right out of college for at least 12 weeks before getting our degree. This ensured that we were all in a position to have experience in our field of study before venturing off into the real world!"

"I have only completed my first year so far but the professors have been very accommodating. I do with the hybrid glasses had more options. Some of the classes are just power points and assignments online but others are really great with video or audio lectures alongside the power points. They need to make this a requirement for all of the classes. The disability service office reply quickly to concerns but the progressors seem to forget your accommodations between each quiz or test and you have to be vigilant to ensure you receive them. The graduate writing center have been great supports and are not very difficult to get an appointment with if you book ahead. The hybrid program is helpful to allow the student to work as well during the pursuit of a graduate degree."

"This university does not help you organize anything. They will send you on a goose chase and a long wait to get any sort of help if you have a disability . The school claims 40% of the classes have less than 20 students but they dont tell you that those arent related to the required classes youll have to take. Theyll kite you around and make you take an extra year of school because they do not have enough openings in their classes. They will make up pay extra for all books and raise the tuition price every year. They will not help you and will not regularly council you or attempt to prepare you for the real world. do not believe the price tag! Multiply whatever you expect to pay by about 3 or 4!!!!! After you graduate, you will be a sub par worker and may not even get a job paying 15/hour for years. Yoh will have to defer payment on your loans and the price of your useless degree from arizona state University will double or worse"

"Attending Arizona State University was the best decision I have ever made in pursuing a career in science. I have been received so many opportunities since I began my journey at ASU. As a transfer student I was accepted into the LEAP scholars program where I am learning about biology education research. Recently our manuscript was sent for review and will lead to my first publication. Being a part of the LEAP program provided me with the opportunity to become a part of a neurovirology lab where I am studying the alphaherpes virus. Midway into my first semester at ASU I was informed of the opportunity to obtain a Master's in an accelerated program. As I am finishing my Bachelor's in Microbiology, I will be starting my Master's in Molecular and Cellular Biology. I have been provided with so many opportunities in only the 1 academic year I have attended ASU and feel glad to have chosen this school to guide me in becoming a great scientist."

"Getting a nutrition degree at ASU was one of the best decisions I made in my adult life! All of the professors I had at ASU were insightful, intelligent, and genuinely loved their careers. I was also very impressed with their knowledge of the topic. Most teachers I had at ASU were experts in the topics they instructed and had a love for teaching. I will say, the Nutrition (Dietetics) program was very geared towards students who wanted to take the traditional path. Finish their DPD classes and go straight into an internship. I am interested in pursuing a PhD after this and I feel as though I did not have many resources to help me with this process. In the beginning I did not know who to turn to for advice. This was my only qualm with the program. There were some DPD classes I wasn't very happy with taking, but that is because personally I have no interest in "Food Service Purchasing" or anything like that. The class was well structured and the teacher was awesome, just not my favorite topic!"

"I would highly recommend Arizona State University, specifically the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, to anyone who is interested. The staff are all professionals currently or recently in the field, and highly regarded professionals. Not only do you learn the required material, but you are able to receive real-world applications of course material. All of the school staff encourage and support students to succeed. Upon graduation, each student has at least one professional experience, and has been presented with multiple opportunities career-wise, for leadership, and community involvement. This school is invested in the students, and I am incredibly glad that I was able to attend such a dedicated, renowned university."
