Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2018
"Arizona State University is a thriving University. There are an incredible number of programs and the advisers are wonderful in helping your find the right program for you and your career goals. The campus is spacious with unlimited resources to their students. Between the online options and the in-class courses, you can find just about anything schedule you need to be successful. The teaching staff is great and the courses are easy to maneuver with very detailed syllabuses. There is also a variety of financial aid available to incoming freshman with a competitive GPA. I would recommend Arizona State as a valid option for anyone that wants versatility, support, and opportunities in their education."

"I transferred to ASU after getting my AA from community college. I was excited about the classes offered and looked forward to getting my BS from them. I worked closely with my Academic Advisor to take the best courses possible. At the end of the semester, I called to speak with my AA again to register for next classes. The one that I worked with originally was no longer there. I was asked why I took the classes that I had, because none of them applied to the degree I was pursuing. I told them that I cleared them with my previous AA. They then advised that my graduation date would be delayed another semester because of the classes I had just completed. So now, I was on the line for 7k in student loans that served me no purpose. I immediately transferred to another school."

"Arizona State University and the Watts College of Public Service and Community Resource provides unique opportunities to individuals of all ages and in various paths of professional and educational development. The various courses within this program are supported by the universities efforts to provide opportunities students while in school and lead productive and impacting lives after graduation. While you may need to work a little harder with the administration staff, the professors in this program have experience outside of academia supporting the aspect that their lessons are not just theory but occur in the professional world. During my time in this program, I was provided many opportunities that supported further professional and personal development, suggesting that Arizona State University prepares individuals for more than just their career. While the school does not always make it easy to find opportunities, they are extremely supportive of any and every opportunity to work with students to ensure they receive the most from their higher level education. There are a few tips I would suggest when attending this school and possibly in this program. The first would be to take advantage of everything offered, and you may never know what will spark an interest! The second is to be aware, planning for the future is always supported, but enjoy the reality of being in college. The third and final word of wisdom is to ask questions, in making sure that the university and program know your needs as a student as they are here to support you!"

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"This is a great degree if you are interested in an environmental or geosciences career, especially if you are going into STEM education. Be aware if you are looking to be an environmental tech, employeers are looking for BS candidates, and this is a BA degree. I have gotten interviews though, so know what you want to use the degree for."

Chad Brown - 2/24/2019
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018
"Currently pursuing my Electrical Engineering Degree 100% online, my biggest complaint is the lack up support from ASU when looking for help on difficult subjects. They have online tutoring but when you get to more advanced classes they will have at best one person who is competent enough to instill confidence that they know what they are doing and that one person is usually only available Tuesday at (9:00am-10:00am). If you are a student straight out of high school this program can work for you but if you are a non traditional student that is trying to pursue your EE degree while working a full time job this is not for you. If you have questions about the program just comment and it will notify me."

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019
"The course material is worse than the few material on Youtube. The professors ignore emails, even on exam days. The testing system is completely broken, so you might as well not even study the material, because the score you receive will have nothing to do with your mastery of the material."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019
"Really awesome degree programs, but ASU only cares about money! I am in triple digit debt, and for what? I had to ask 5 different teachers for letters of recommendations for graduate school because most said no. It is like.. they do not really care. I would email professors about meeting to discuss "next-steps" for after graduation and most did not answer me. I simply wanted to know how they got into the field they were in, I was interested in it for myself, and 3 separate professors ignored me. They go on and on about mentor-ship and opportunities but for the amount of money I paid them in tuition and fees, all I truly got was a headache. I learned really interesting material in class, but most of it was self-driven. I had to make my own schedules and independently study topics. I had to make my own class schedules, advising has no idea what they are doing. It is a lot of YOU doing for yourself, and that is fine and it prepares you for the real-world. But why am I in so much debt for a school that really did not do much for me?"

"Arizona State University is a great university to pursue and engineering degree, especially in the field of mechanical or aerospace. I enjoyed the quality of professors who genuinely enjoyed their curriculum and interacting with students. The size of the program provides excellent opportunities to develop strong research-based relationships with faculty, that make for excellent work experience."

"Arizona State University is a fun, open-minded university that enables their students to succeed. I had never felt more cared about in an academic environment than I did when I attended ASU. There are endless options when it comes to the educational paths you can embark on. From my peers to professors, to guidance counselors I had the support needed to do my best. I genuinely feel that I got a high-quality education from ASU. I was able to get internships that made me marketable once I graduated, and that benefitted me greatly. Whenever I hear someone talk about wanting to go back to school, I always recommend ASU as an affordable, innovative university. The school is diverse, safe, and a fantastic place to make lasting connections. I am proud to be an alumnus of this school. Upon graduating, I instantly missed college. The environment and the faculty that ASU has made my college experience so memorable, and is something I will always cherish. When I was an incoming freshman, I had shallow expectations for what college would be like. I wasn't very excited to be attending in general. I was quickly reconvinced that going to college was the best decision I could have made for myself. To this day, I still look back on my education from Arizona State Univesity as being the most significant investment I have made so far. To anyone debating on whether to attend Arizona State University or not go. You will not regret it."

"Arizona State University has provided the right amount of assistance in every possible way. There were many organization to take apart of that everyone will feel welcomed to no matter their background or where they come from. There is no possible way to 'not get help' for courses. The life on campus was always great and there was always guidance where ever you went and all of the professors are excellent."
