Uppers

A large school with a plethora of ethnic variety, a rapidly rising reputation and countless alumni for networking opportunities.

Downers

The school has a reputation of being a party school, because of it the general public may not think highly of the school's name.

Comments

If you are coming to party, consider looking elsewhere as the school is taking great measures to control the party scene. If you are coming for an education, look no further as ASU is truly a place where you get out what you put in. The opportunities can be endless.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The diversity of ASU yields significant benefit for students.

Uppers

The atmosphere and campus layout provides for a relaxed setting. Also the college hosts a number of great programs that provide great insight into various cultures and personal development.

Downers

Certain classes were too easy for an international student from Europe, would recommend higher standard for students.

Comments

Research the program well and make the most of the college. I had the best year of my life studying there as an international and was very jealous of those being allowed to stay for their full degree.

October 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Large selection of classes, very large integration of online classes, relatively inexpensive tuition. Lots of clubs and a large variety of opportunities. Social life is obviously abundant. Relative location to Phoenix allows for lots of opportunities for internships and jobs while in school. Relatively good location to travel from. Very active attempts to promote integration into programs and extensive advising for freshman. ASU also has a relatively simple class registration system and it's easy to get information about graduation requirements.

Downers

Size is also a downside to some regards, quality and dependability of fellow students' contributions can be a downside in certain class setting. Hasn't integrated the usage of student ID cards well and their dependence on integrating with a particular bank only made that harder, my graduate institution and those of others I've spoken to is much more intuitive. Financial aid and student assistance is poorly communicated - they don't typically make students aware that if they or their parent is rejected for a PLUS loan, they can access the full Stafford amount, which is actually a big deal given the COA. Also don't provide (or at least didn't provide) other assistance like short-term emergency loans, book loans, etc. which I've seen at other institutions. Prestige just generally isn't that high academically, definitely carries a "party school" reputation.

Comments

I've come to think more and more that while a bachelor's degree is necessary, a post-secondary degree is generally even more and more necessary. In that regard, I think ASU is a GREAT school to attend for undergrad. There's a variety of opportunities and experiences available and it's generally a great place to go have fun when you're 18-22, and with a decent amount of work, emerge with a solid enough GPA to get to grad school. That being said, for some very specific programs/careers, prestige may matter, and that is where ASU does lag.

Undergrad was only 4 years and the party reputation is not the easiest thing to talk about.

Comments

Quality of Life

Quality of life at my school is great. I love living in the downtown community because it really does feel like a home away from home. Everything is there when you need it and so easy to get to.

Admissions

Admission process to my college is pretty rigorous. After completing the priority classes, one must apply to the Nursing School and take the MCATS.

Academics

In terms of ASU as a whole, I would say that the academic aspect is good. You get out of classes what you put in. If you don't really try, you might squeak by with a low C, but you will forget all of it as soon as the class is over -which is essentially pointless and a waste of resources.

For Barrett, The Honors College there is a moderate-considerably higher requirement of academic effort and quality. The honors classes tend to be more vigorous as well as inspiring. You are able to learn on a more interconnected interdisciplinary level than most other undergraduate classes provide. If taking a non-honors class, you can make it an honors class by making a contract with the professor to do some extra task (report, project etc) in addition to all other normal class requirements, where upon adequate completion one receives honors credit. Furthermore, before graduating from the Barrett each undergraduate student must either write an honors thesis or present a creative project that takes up a considerable amount of time and effort. If this is not approved and completed, the student doesn't receive credit.

Quality of Life

It is adequate. There are much worse and much better. The experience is what you make it.

Admissions

For ASU general admission was not difficult at all and I think most people could likely get in as long as they have graduated high school and have adequate reading and writing abilities.

For Barrett, The Honors College, it was fairly difficult to gain admission. I actually had to apply twice, and was accepted on the second try. They pick people who are more dedicated to school and learning than the average ASU student. Additionally, I would say that the typical Barrett student has a higher overall reading and writing comprehension and competency than the general student body. That is not to say other people aren't capable and intelligent too, but they are essentially in higher concentrations in Barrett than are found in many aspects of the rest of the school.
