"Studying Computer Science at Arizona State University has proved to be very beneficial to not only expanding my knowledge and understanding of theoretical applications of Computer Science but also has allowed me to apply my learning in very interesting ways. I have enjoyed a majority of the teachers and courses that I have taken at ASU and have felt that they have helped me to better my knowledge of best practices in Computer Science as well as pushed me to look forward to learning more and deepening my understanding of software development principles. There are a lot of great schools out there and some that likely have better and more experienced professors but I have found that many ASU professors are willing to work with students that show a genuine interest in mastering the subject and that come to visit with them during their office hours. Having understanding and caring teachers was also a huge benefit of attending ASU as I could work with them ahead of time if I had a family vacation planned during the semester that might interfere with a test schedule and find a time to take the exam when I was available to do so. Like any other university or degree program there were some difficult and not enjoyable courses that could be removed or revised from the degree program to better prepare students for jobs in the future. Despite this, I believe ASU has done a good job overall at revising their Computer Science degree program and continuing to make it better for future students to be more prepared and to receive better instruction while minimizing courses and assignments that are not as useful for the students. I know that during the four years that I attended and completed my Bachelor's degree there were several revisions made to the major map and degree requirements for Computer Science. One of the degree requirements that was revised while I was attending ASU that I took advantage of was taking a course called "Logic in Computer Science" which could take the place of Calculus 3. For me this was very helpful as I did not go directly from High School into University studies and because of that I had not been doing mathematics and was very out of practice. Being able to take this course really helped me understand other important topics in Computer Science and also was much more interesting to me than my Calculus 2 course that I had taken the semester before this class."

"ASU Polytechnic is a great study school with plenty of science programs to choose from, advisers to talk to, and a small campus feel that allows for easy formations of relationships with everyone you interact with. I really enjoyed gaining lasting mentors and connections."

"Music therapy master degree equivalency program for 3 years at Arizona State University is highly recommended. During the first 1.5 years, students can learn a variety of Music therapy knowledge and skills. After that, students join internship programs for 6 months. It enables students take CBMT (The Certification Board for Music Therapists ) exam for becoming professional music therapists. Music therapy program at Arizona State University is a top level in the US. While studying music therapy, students can also take other music courses such as composition, music history, musical performance which students are interested in. Professors are great and kind. Students can keep their motivation and achieve their goals while enjoying the university life in sunshine and comfortable climate throughout the year."

"I truly believe Arizona State University is a great choice. I was able to earn my degree 100% online while working full time and being a single mother of two. The flexibility the school offered was valuable to me and my family. I was able to go to work during the day and come home in the evenings, login to my computer and attend classes right in the comfort of my own home. Occasionally I would have my two daughters visit me which is okay at home, however that is usually not acceptable in a traditional classroom setting. "Fear the Fork" Go ASU!"

"This will be my second time attended Arizona State University. ASU has partnered up with Starbucks Coffee Company. If you are employed with Starbucks then Starbucks will pay for your full tuition for your Bachelors Degree. This is what I did. With the money I saved from my bachelors degree I am now going back to school for my Masters Degree. The one major thing I love about ASU is that they really care about their students. There are so many resources that are available for me to help get through the programs. ASU makes learning less stressful and fun. ASU is one of the best schools I have gone to by far."

"Arizona State may be the largest school in the country, but it has a small town feel. Walking around campus, I remember constantly running into people I knew. After freshman year, the school does a great job of ensuring the classes are small as well. There are students from every state, and there are endless opportunities for involvement on campus. Add on the fact that there are high quality sports and a thriving Phoenix metro area surrounding the campus, I can't think of any other college I would have rather attended. I absolutely loved my experience at ASU and it had a profound impact on my life."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my coursework, colleagues, and faculty when studying Global Studies at ASU. When I started ASU's Global Studies BA program, I honestly did not yet know what I wanted to do for a career--I just know I wanted to make a difference. ASU's Global Studies program offered a unique variety of coursework which helped prepare me for just about any career. I studied research methods, urban planning, transportation planning, environmental planning, globalism... even counter terrorism. One of the best things about the Global Studies program was the required international internship course. I decided to do my internship in Thailand, which was one of the most eye-opening and memorable experiences of my life. I went with a group of 15 students and three instructors. The curriculum took us all over the country, studying everything from sustainability, resilience planning, transportation planning, architecture and history, and even gave me my first opportunity to work with government and business leaders on a multitude of topics. I truly value every experience I had in the Global Studies program, and feel the coursework provided me with a strong foundation for my career, while providing me with a unique global perspective relating to urban systems, rural development, and how our decisions impact the global economy, social health, and environment. I would strongly recommend ASU's Global Studies program to anyone."

"I enrolled at Arizona State University in August 2015 and do not regret it at all. I originally declared my major as Economics but switched to Accounting halfway through my sophomore year. The business school is amazing and has very good and qualified professors teaching there. I highly recommend going to ASU, especially for their business programs."

"The College of Health Solutions takes many steps in preparing their students for their next steps into the professional work place. I had various internship opportunites, a variety of volunteer opportunites, and labs and classes that provided first-hand experience and a wealth of knowledge. Arizona State University as a whole also provides many helping resources and opportunites for students to be successful while in school and upon graduating."

"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."
