    The one gripe I have for this school is that it seems like everything is half-assed. It's as if not much is expected from anyone including the school. Now there are some faculty that take there jobs seriously and want to teach and help students, but then you get some cases where you get the run around when something goes wrong. I just feel like this school could do better. The one upside is no out of state tuition fees.

    ASU is a pretty affordable all college is expensive so different is no especial but they will work with you to help make sure you have all you will need in order to do well in class. You can do work-study to help cover the cost and also rent books and figure out what you don't need and what you do need to be successful.
