Arizona State University has a wonderful biology program. They give you the ability to choose the classes that interest you. I was able to take marine biology type classes in the middle of the desert! The professors are amazing and truly do care about each and every student. It is hard to find a university that not only has a wide variety of course but that houses staff that truly make an overall difference in your life.

I loved attending ASU! I transferred to ASU from Northern Arizona University (NAU) due to personal reasons and I am thankful that I received the last two years of my education at this university. I had wonderful, attentive, and caring advisors who helped me to make sure that I would succeed. While I had a difficult time with one or two professors, most of the professors that I worked with were fantastic! They were eager to work with any student that was putting effort into their education and made... Read More

I sought this degree as a pre-med student because of the complex nature of microbiology. After completing two years of medical school I was grateful for the vast amount of knowledge I had gained from this undergraduate program in microbiology. Microbiology is one of the most difficult subjects for medical students to master and with this undergraduate degree from Arizona State University I was prepared for the extensive amount of microbiology presented during the basic science years of medical school....

Arizona State University was an amazing and very welcoming university. I was able to gain a vast knowledge of sciences and worked with many brilliant and talented professionals. While this university has the record of being the biggest university in the country, I was able to receive quality one on one time with professors at any appropriate time that worked with that professor. ASU had been a great experience that I will forever remember and cherish!

I received a B.S. in Applied Biological Sciences at Arizona State University, Polytechnic campus. I thoroughly enjoyed the Polytechnic campus because it was much more intimate and accessible than the Tempe campus. The Applied Biological Sciences department within the College of Integrative Sciences was an incredible department with the best professors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Each professor is open to discussion about their specialty and more than willing to help students further... Read More

Attending Arizona State University was the best decision I have ever made in pursuing a career in science. I have been received so many opportunities since I began my journey at ASU. As a transfer student I was accepted into the LEAP scholars program where I am learning about biology education research. Recently our manuscript was sent for review and will lead to my first publication. Being a part of the LEAP program provided me with the opportunity to become a part of a neurovirology lab where I...

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.... Read More

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.

Arizona State University is a great school with many amazing professors and research facilities. It is surrounded by the entirety of the greater Phoenix area, so there are so many opportunities for jobs and internships. ASU opens the door to so many possibilities.

I enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I do believe I attended the school for a different reason than my peers. At the time, ASU was a known party school and had a reputation for drinking and partying, not its education. The only reason I attended was because I received a scholarship from the school and it was close to home. Although this was the case, I do not regret my decision the least bit. I actually learned a lot in my major and met some really awesome people.

Their classes only present information. This school does not help you in anyway to get a job in the field you studied. Also their Forensics program is nothing more then a joke. In one class the instructor gave the class material to read about Topac, including all the sexual street language and I thought it was very inappropriate and a very bad choice of material that didn't belong in an educational environment. Also, their Reach-trio program is worthless and needs to be trashed all together. This... Read More

I am in the online biochemistry degree because I work full time in a doctors office. I found it extremely difficult to be able to attend school full time as a ground student and still work because most of the classes and labs are right in the middle of my day. Arizona State University had come up with a full time online degree so I am able to continue to work full time and go to school at the same time. The advisors set up a schedule with classes to take during each semester so I can graduate in... Read More

Arizona State University was a great experience. Studying biology here from 2009-2013 was very useful in learning how to write, study, and promote myself to employers showing them that I put in the effort to obtain a college degree. With my biology degree, I was able to teach biology at the high school and university levels in schools in Colombia, South America for over 2 years. Without this degree, I'm certain that I would not have gotten the job. Some of my favorite courses were microbiology, evolution,... Read More

The biochemistry program at Arizona State University is a rigorous and time-consuming degree. Because ASU is the number one in innovation, there is a large focus on research. As such, many of the professors have laboratories that you may be able to work in as an undergraduate student. This step is critical to the process of getting a job in industry after graduation. The coursework is difficult, but the upper level professors really do seem to care about the success of their students, especially... Read More

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.... Read More

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... Read More

There are many young people who work there. Not many seem to know the reality of life. Every aspect of attending ASU is all done online in the beginning. There will be computer glitches between ASU's system and FASFA's. There is no way to deal with any of it person to person. I tried and thought it was resolved, nope, it still did not accept my taxes from 2015. The first person lead me to believe it was all taken care of. I could not find help to find a three credit class that would fit in my schedule... Read More

I attended Arizona State University after I received a scholarship for being a National Hispanic Scholar. This made it so that it was actually less expensive to attend here than in my home state. While in school I lived on campus and met several people with whom I still keep in touch. I was able to participate in several clubs, intramural sports, volunteer and have an internship. The school's proximity to Phoenix made it so that many opportunities were near by, it also made it so that I could attend... Read More
