Nursing online. Love it. Easy access if you have a computer and internet.

I am really happy with my major. I want to become an international corporate attorney. I believe that the courses I have taken as a global studies major will be applicable to my career goal. I do not have concerns about finding a job. I have to get through law school first.

I am in the School of Political Science and Global Studies. There are many opportunities when it comes to research, internships, and careers. All of the faculty I have been associated with are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I really enjoy the curriculum as well, the program offers many courses on a variety of topics.

I am a global studies major and I did not encounter any problems when applying for this major. I literally selected it when I was applying for ASU and I did not have to fill out any additional applications. It is a fairly new program at ASU and it shares a school with Political Science majors.

actually this is one of ASU's strengths not to mention we are a green school. i know people say there are so many students it will get to crowded but honestly what doesnt?

it is not terrible, the MU where all the food is gets really old after a while and Hassay dorms are not bad, if you want to dine good, go to the barrett halls, if you dont live there then pay to eat there. however if you can get your own budget go to the store, unless you live in a dorm vs. an apartment on campus.
College Senior 2013-04-23T04:43:15Z
it works however i would live on campus if you really want to do yourself a favor. first of all no matter where you park, the campus is to big, itll never work out, i mean its there and some of it isnt really even on campus though they say it is, but its to expensive for what it is.

Filing for financial aid was fairly simple and I got my money without a hassle. If you run into a problem, don't hesitate to call the financial aid office, they can usually fix it over the phone.

Parking passes are really expensive, but if you don't get one then good luck finding a place to keep your car. Fines for parking without a pass or with the wrong pass will run you in the hundreds pretty quickly and there isn't enough visitor parking (which still costs $8/day). They also keep the tow trucks on standby for when your meter runs out, so pay up front or really pay in the end.

I haven't eaten in the dining hall, but I have seen the food other people have gotten from there. It looks pretty decent. The main dining hall is centered on the campus, making it really far from the outermost classes.
College Senior 2013-04-19T18:21:09Z
While my specific major is really great, the overall school is rather average. The class sizes are too big and the teachers are overloaded. Even so, there are some stand-out professors who really seem to care if you are getting the material
College Senior 2013-04-19T18:16:19Z
The Ceramics department is top notch. Great instructors, well-equipped facilities, and a challenging workload.

ASU is in Arizona and it can get HOT in the summer so drink lots of water, wear sunscreen, and make sure to bring summer close. It is however very nice during the winter, it gets cold but that's what jackets are for.
College Senior 2013-04-18T20:55:32Z
The main campus is great and has great student life. All of the other campuses are very boring with nothing to do.
College Senior 2013-04-18T20:54:30Z
There is alcohol everywhere. ASU is supposed to be a dry campus but they don't do a good job of enforcing it.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T07:05:28Z
Truthfully, it depends on your major. Because of the size of ASU, it's divided into many smaller 'schools', like the WP Carey School of Business, or mine, the School of International Letters and Cultures. Therefore, each school will offer a different academic experience. The larger, more prestigious schools will rely on mega-classes of 400+ students, while smaller ones will have more interaction from the teacher. Again, because of the diversity and sheer size, it is easy to be overwhelmed or to think that all professors at ASU are impersonal or to feel like a number. A word of advice: before jumping to conclusions, try to talk your professor. A personal relationship with your teacher will do more to help you academically and reveal more about the school you're in than a review on RateMyProfessor

The campus is bubbling over with all the interesting backgrounds and ethnicities you see at ASU. From girls wearing full burqas as they attend their classes to international students from China to your good ol' American kids, there's a niche for every culture here. There are business student associations for the Pacific rim students, Hispanic fraternities etc. You can find it all.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T06:55:56Z
The School of International Letters and Cultures, which I am in, is a much smaller program than a lot of the others. For that reason, we receive less funding, less attention, and fewer students. Despite being small in number, we are close knit and all of the staff- the language teachers, the advisers- are very involved in their students' success. I'd say the smaller numbers of language students leads to smaller classes and a more personalized experience, which is a rare treat in such a large university.

Guys & Girls:
You get a lot of different cultural backgrounds here. People play sports, meet for a fun night out, usually the look is for summer since its so hot most of the year but you can get the professional look, sporty, and just casual. Academics are important but having a good time on the weekends or social events during the week are just as important.
College Senior 2013-04-17T05:51:47Z
I think ASU is very diverse! With 4 campuses it houses many international students, transfer, continuing education, and incoming freshman of all different backgrounds!
College Senior 2013-04-17T05:49:12Z
Parking on campus is expensive!! It can be difficult to find parking and is a nightmare to leave. Once it took me 45 minutes to get out of my parking spot, out of the parking garage and about 2 miles down the road

ASU has 4 campuses and there is a shuttle that goes to and from every campus. It can be difficult and time consuming to travel that often (an hour ride from West to Tempe), but they still make it so you can save money on gas. In Tempe, they have local commuter buses, but if you don't live on that campus, be prepared to pay for public transportation (which is not great at West and Polytec campus) or make sure you have your own car.

Most places are really good and there are a variety of cuisines to choose from. Some places can get a little prices or the owners change hands though.

Health & Safety:
The campus is well lit at night and there are tons of call boxes in case of emergency on all of the campuses. It can get a little sketchy at night, but just be on your guard. I've never had any problems, but I've always been aware of my surroundings.
College Senior 2013-04-16T08:03:05Z
Some places are very interesting: lots of international food to try out! I have tried Ethiopian, Vietnamese, Thai, and Brazilian food near-by campus. The prices are not too high either. High quality places are closer to Mill Avenue and Scottsdale.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
