The College of Public Service and Community Development is what brought me to ASU! There were no other universities offering a degree even close to the Non-Profit Leadership and Management program. Mostly, they offered courses on philanthropy, but nothing on finances, leadership, and volunteer management. I recently finished my first semester at ASU and already I've been given many opportunities to volunteer with local non-profits and meet like-minded people to start new projects with! However, taking classes in the right order and working around my job schedule can be difficult. I wish class schedules could be a little more flexible when it comes to my job. When I was graduating high school, I would have never believed that I would be saying if I could choose ASU as my university again I would. ASU has given me opportunities in public service and community development not offered anywhere else.

My overall experience at ASU has been great! The teachers and students have really engaged me to learn more on a given subject. My favorite experiences have been the social interaction with other fellow students in the class. They make you think about a subject more in depth and in ways that you didn't think of. The school is unique because of the online experience. I meet many different people from all over the United States and also other countries. It's somewhat hard when we have group projects and others are on a different time schedule. However, we find ways to interact and get the job done. I wish I started my college career at Arizona State instead of transferring from another school. The way they have their program objectives set up are much more clear and easy to follow to graduate on time. The faculty are always pleasant and engaging, while at my other school, they were sub par and didn't seem wiling to help. Arizona State University has been a rewarding and educating experience and I would choose this school over again.

I am an out-of-state freshman student living in Palo Verde East and the social atmosphere and distance from classrooms are preferable to any engineering student. However, the elevators break often and when it rains, even though it?s rare, there are several problems. The most important problem is that the seventh floor leaks causing parts of the walls to become mushy and break. Also, the first floor hub area (an area where the tutoring center, Starbucks, and the UPS store are located) becomes flooded. Those are the best and worse of the residential housing option. Other things that should be known is that the walls are extremely thin where a conversation or business in a bathroom can be heard by neighbors. Nevertheless, this living space allows friendships to easily be formed and the closeness to my classes makes this experience great!
