What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Arizona State University is a great school. I attend the Walter Cronkite School for students of Mass Communication and Journalism and I love the experience I have gained from the college. I feel prepared for future jobs and work experience.
Kirsten from Phoenix, AZ
Arizona State University- Tempe is great for those who want a large university feel, with small classes if you choose. The pricing is good, and they offer lots of scholarships and financial aide, especially for in state. I really like how there are a lot of great resources, like free tutoring, to help students keep up.
