6 Student Testimonials



Freshman · Psychology

Everyone was so friendly and happy to help. The staff gave directions, helped you with whatever you needed. My classes were pretty small and i got to know my classmates pretty well!


Freshman · Astronomy and Astrophysics

It's really easy to get involved with research, which is incredibly important for grad school and getting a job. All you really have to do is pick a professor and ask if you can join them. Tutoring is also incredibly accessible. There is math tutoring that is ridiculously good at Wexler and the tutors are very friendly. It's also free! With any class, if you put the work in you'll do great. I was hesitant about ASU because "it's where everybody goes" but I had a great first year and I like it!


Freshman · Computer and Information Systems Security

I like that you can easily find the people that you want to be with. If you want to party, you can find others like you. If you want to stay far away from parties, there are others like you. Classes are great - it's college so of course there is a lot of work with studying in order to get a good GPA but that's to be expected. Clubs are very diverse and cover anything and everything you can imagine (and if not, you can start one!)


Freshman · Kinesiology

The staff here are very passionate about the success of the students, and they will gladly schedule office hours with students who are struggling. The campus vibe is also very laid back and relaxed, and the students are all very friendly and wanting to make friends. The weather here is also great, coming from the Midwest I spend a lot of time studying outside in the sun here! The campus here also feels very safe, and there are many resources available on campus that promote safety.


Freshman · Engineering

I have had a wonderful first year at the ASU Polytechnic Campus as an engineering student in the Fulton College of Engineering (a TOP Engineering College in the country). Being a student with a disability, the Disability Resource Center (DRC) has been very helpful in advocating for any accommodations that I may need, and my professors have been very encouraging. I am already looking forward to starting my sophomore year as an ASU Sundevil!!


Freshman · Biomedical / Medical Engineering

It is really easy to get involved. There is a lot to do after studying. Dragon boat is my favorite club :^)
