Arizona State University has been great to me! There are many opportunities offered to students. Whether it is a job opportunity, volunteer work, study abroads, and even internships. The staff at this school is really welcoming and friendly with everyone. Whenever I have a question, it only takes one call or email for me to get helped out. It is very easy to reach out to teachers, counselors, and other students. The thing I like most is that everyone seems to be enjojying their time around campus. Which makes it easier for me to enjoy my time too!

i love how friendly the staff are and the people there! Everyone welcomes you with a great smile and cool stories. People are there for you whether you are struggling with classes or just need someone to speak to. No one there want to see you struggle, someone always finds a way of helping you. There are success coaches there to also help and guide you in the right direction. The professors are so helpful whether it is trying to find an intern or a job or even getting a A in thier class.
Professors at the Cronkite School are great for the most part. Campus is fairly small and quiet, and the area is very career oriented in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Shuttles to and from other campuses make transportation easy. The dorms last year were fairly nice. Each dorm had a shared private restroom and some even had private bedrooms. Only complaints is the amount of crime prominent on campus. Campus does have a large homeless population in the area, making some areas less safe than others. There are systems in place though to notify students about crime occurring on campus and even apps to alert on-campus police about possible issues.
