Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

A cost effective means to an end. I did learn quite a bit in both the classroom and during the internships, however, there is definite room for improvement.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Going from an Undergraduate to Graduate student within a year at the same university, I was able to pick out the differences between the two almost instantly. The program I am in takes great pride in ensuring all students are set up for success when they leave with a graduate degree. Overall, I have felt great care and understanding from the teachers I have had. Although the academia can be challenging along with a heavy workload, all of the work seems to be appropriate and is generally enjoyable. The cons I can think of in the program greatly stand out, specifically the massive numbers of students they have in the programs, creating work overload for academic counselors and field placement coordinators. The people I have communicated with have always been friendly, but it has been apparent that some concerns have mine have been low on list. and when preparing for class and internships this may be a stressful circumstance. Another con is the lack of scholarships available for all types of graduate students within their scholarship pool, as most of them seem to be for specific demographics that do not apply to the majority of students. All in all, I feel it is a great graduate program to be in and it definitely has more pros versus cons.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

There are certain aspects of this survey that I gave lower scores to because my knowledge on the subject is limited. I actually begin attending ASU while still living in Indiana. The directors of my concurrent degree played a very important role in my being able to begin graduate studies while living out of state. I was able to take an online course so that I could continue working full time and living out of state for my first semester before transitioning to living in state. I am very grateful to my advising team as they allowed me to pursue what I am passionate about even though geography proved to be a challenge the first semester. If not for their help I would have had to re-apply the following school year. ASU a great school and is one of the few schools I found that offers a concurrent Masters in Public Affairs and Social Work, which is the specific program that I was looking for when applying to schools.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my ASU program is that it is online. I am able to do my homework and tests on my time. Since I am working and going to school, like most college goers, this helps to keep my life steady and even out the work load. The cons are small but if I ever find myself driving to ASU for help or counseling appointments, the area is quite confusing and crowded.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

I was lightened in all aspects of education and academics. I gained knowledge in numerous capacities, for example, the need and use of statistics in my political course, how countries were erected, and how scientific theory applies to all aspect of life. The access to computers were very beneficial for me, as well as the shuttle buses. Everything I needed was in walking distance and there was always a good place to ear nearby, which is very important to me as a diabetic. I loved the bicycle racks at every building. And parking was never a problem. Cons - The only added benefit I would like would be the accessibility to bicycles without pay, on almost every corner, as in Chicago or New York City.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel that my graduate program is an amazing way to change society. To become a teacher, you have the opportunity to create new people. The cons to my program is that there are not enough teachers that care about student. I want to become a teacher that touches lives, not just teaches them.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The administration in education program has been a great experience. Although, it is a non stop program that continues through the summer, in the end the benefits will be worth the effort.
