My advisor, Carrie Coe, told me the courseworkQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
My advisor, Carrie Coe, told me the coursework for the Graphic Design program was going to be quite difficult and time consuming. Well, she definitely got one of those right. They give you a lot of time consuming work - BUSY WORK! and don't allow gifted art minds to think outside of the box. One major downfall of the ASU Herberger program is they demand you have a 3.8GPA by the time you finish your freshman semester. If you don't have a 3.8 you are forced to choose another major. WHO THE HELL HAS TIME OR MONEY TO TAKE 1 MORE YEAR OF COURSES! Of course, you can transfer credits in but you still have to take the full four years to complete a Graphic Design major. Oh, and the classes start 1x a year, there is no Spring enrollment for Graphic Design courses. The Graphic Design program is in it's infancy stage and most of the kids I'll be graduating with, myself included, will end up with $60k worth of debt while we work to pay it off with odd jobs.

After going to ASU for one year, AllBrightCommunications
After going to ASU for one year, All I can say is stay away unless you are from the surrounding area. This school is awful. I was a communication student and this department was downright sad. The equipment is dated, the computers were old with Adobe CS3 (and if you attempted to use the lab with CS4, forget about it. The software WILL crash) and the professor were there only to get the paycheck.

I lived in both Massie Hall and Centennial Village. While CV was brand new I had no complaints, massie was downright disgusting. If you do decide to go here Centennial or Texan halls are a must.

The student body consists of small town "hicks" that are not friendly at all. This was High School all over again! Please save yourself some money and go to a Community College. Don't get sucks into their excellent advertising.Oh and San Angelo is a horrible small town. Nothing to do but drink or do drugs.

This is actually a great school.Quite BrightBiology
This is actually a great school.Though most of the grades that I gave it were in the A-, A+ range, they were sincere. Faculty are there with an open-door policy. Their door is open, they're ready to help you. And even sometimes when it's closed, you can knock and they will open it for you.

Easy to get involved. Just find people who share your interests. Avoid the Honors Program, though. It's effed up and plain bullsh*t, unless you're willing to suffer for some extra bucks.
