Student & Graduate Reviews (254)
I am excited to return to ASU as a graduate student this year! Earning my BAE in 2016 was a great accomplishment where I was fortunate to receive an education full of hands on experiences, well educated and adapted professors, and a diverse student body. After a year in my career, I know ASU prepared me to be a well educated professional. When choosing a graduate school, there was no doubt in returning to this pristine university which holds educators and students to a high standards. Go Devils!
Since grade school I envisioned gaining higher education. It was a topic that was lightly introduced to children but teachers would not spend much time exploring educational paths with students. I attended a public school in a low income community. Coming from a family with no college background, my parents expected their children to take advantage of the education opportunities. And her I am as an ASU graduate student pursuing my graduate degree. The experience at ASU has remained similarly between undergraduate and graduate programs. I had an overall good experience with instructors and their quality of teaching. In social work, teachers know their material, and also have field experience being real social workers. The BSW curriculum in Social Work, sets the foundation for the major with opportunity to specialize in a concentration. The university has a diverse student body. In my experience, students are friendly and willing to help you. The campus has adequate security that offers safety in campus during the day and night. The ASU downtown campus in particular, is well lit and appears safe to students with night class sessions. Financial services are available to all students in-person and online. My experience as an undergraduate student inspired me to continue my education at ASU and pursue a graduate degree in Social Work. I enrolled in the the graduate program in 2016 and have an expected date for graduation of May 2018.
I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and if you're pursuing a career in physical, occupational, or cardiac therapy I highly recommend this program. The classes could be challenging but that is a good thing because you it forces you to learn in order to keep up. Probably the most positive aspect of this degree are the professors. They are always willing to sit down and talk and help explain anything that you may not understand. Overall, i felt that this program prepared me well for pursuing graduate school.
Arizona State University is an institution that challenges students and effectively prepares individuals for their future careers. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to attend ASU to receive my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am now returning to ASU in pursuit of a graduate degree in Educational Technology to continue my education. ASU has helped me tremendously to implement the best plan of study for my future, with available and extremely helpful advisers, professors, and all school personnel. The level of support I have received has been an incredible help to me throughout my time at ASU.
Based on my own knowledge and the knowledge of other college students at different institutions, I can proudly say that ASU is the most diverse and welcoming university that I know of. The University represents a community of innovators, and future leaders of the world and it is a constant learning experience being around so many great minds. Another great aspect of the school is the fact that it can be accessed at many different locations making it easier for those that cannot always get to a campus. Overall, my degree program gave me such a wide variety of biological science material to work with and learn from anything to genetics to adaptations of plants and animals. The instructors were always welcoming and made the classes enjoyable for anyone in the degree program. I definitely got my moneys worth and Arizona State University Polytechnic!
Although it is an extremely large campus, Arizona State University is a place where people are able to find their niche and truly feel at home. From job opportunities, volunteer experiences, and study abroad options, they make students feel welcomed within the diverse environment. The ability to join Barrett, The Honors College is a definite perk of the school. This program entails completing an honors thesis, taking honors classes, and making contracts with professors to complete additional assignments. Working on campus, volunteering around Phoenix, studying abroad in England, studying abroad in Chile, being a member of Barrett, and defending my honors thesis were all wonderful opportunities I had in my four years at this university. I changed my major multiple times, had my favorite teachers, had teachers I did not enjoy as much, made great friends, and got involved on campus which are all possible at many universities around the globe. ASU is different from many of these other programs though because of the countless variety of opportunities available on each of their campuses.
In my opinion, the institution of Arizona State University is a great place to earn a degree. For the biggest school in the nation, I felt my academic needs were met and the professors I had at my years there were very helpful and informative. Not only was this school great for learning and furthering my education, but there were many clubs and resources that I was able to make use of and participate in. I have been an intramural basketball participant from the start and I have made some great memories at this school. I would definitely recommend this school for anyone who is looking to further their education and get the full college experience. I am now enrolled in the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics and am proud to still remain a part of the ASU community.
I graduated from ASU with a bachelors of science in exercise and wellness, but have decided to continue on and pursue a masters in biomedical diagnostics. The classes for the EXW degree are very hands on, rather than just reading articles and writing papers, though reading/papers are included. Most classes involve you doing specific exercises, teaching an exercise class, or evaluating your peers regarding their form or physical abilities. A lot of the higher level classes piggy back of information learned in lower division classes so it is important to understand the information at a basic level so you do not get lost with more in depth knowledge. Overall, this is a very interactive and enjoyable degree to pursue and highly recommend considering the college of health solutions for your degree of study!
Arizona State University exceeded my expectations. I received my BS degree in Biological Sciences in 2014. ASU is a large university with over 70,000 students most of which are from out of state or out of country leading to a diverse student body. The faculty and staff is also made up of individuals with impressive backgrounds. Even with the large student body, finding a seat in a class is never an issue - professors are always happy to add students to class, this leads to reduced stress and on time graduation dates. The ease of advising is wonderful as well. There are plenty of resources to ensure you are on the right path and stay on the right path. Sun Devil pride is a real thing. Not only are you receiving a great education but there is also a sense of pride in attending football, basketball, baseball etc. games. I highly recommend ASU to any students considering it - it is a decision you will not regret.
Arizona State University offers a vast majority of opportunities from; research, internships, career advancement, Greek life, student government, sportsmanship, and prepares you for the real world. ASU has one of the best libraries for all nights, endless research papers, or projects within a quite environment. Not to mention, the recreational gym that allows you to release stress while studying for a midterm or exam. ASU offers plenty of hands on experiences within your own major or focus of study by connecting with professionals within the University or the community overall.
