I'm only a first year student, and franklyQuite BrightComputer Science
I'm only a first year student, and frankly within the first week here I was already wanting to go else where. This school is on the professional level when it comes to making itself "look" super duper. It isn't, dorm life is terrible, classes (unless you're a STEM) are so easy it isn't even good for grades because you'll be making so many dumb mistakes in your work. I've even seen assignments for higher level classes and it isn't hard. The financial aid office here doesn't coordinate & they limited how much money they think students are worth. The Computer Science program here will pretty much force students into game design once upper level classes roll around. However if you're a biology, medical field, or chemistry major you'll have a much better time here, those programs really do excel and the professors from what I've seen are some of the best in the state(because most went to UT Austin!). Professors for the most part are willing to go out of their way to help but as always there are some not so nice teachers here. If you can go anywhere with a bigger and better reputation, do it. Oh and if you can't stand heavy heavy heavy smokers, be forewarned, they dwell here.

Question
I would not recommend ASU if you areQuite BrightCommunications
I would not recommend ASU if you are not from the surrounding area. This school's student body mainly consists of students who are from west texas. Coming from a large city (Austin, TX), I wouldn't recommend this school as you are treated like an outsider. Although the student body was terrible, the faculty/staff was above average (compared to a community college).

Question
ASU is a very good university to attendQuite BrightComputer Science
ASU is a very good university to attend as a freshman. 75% of the student body are actually freshmen (though you might want to take that as you will, considering ASU is a school that also offers graduate programs). The problem is, I transferred here as a Junior from A&M, due to financial problems and having to find a less expensive university. I now wish that I would have rethought that decision.

The computer science degree program here is in need of much help. The only courses that are offered are for students that want to become video game developers. The dean of our department has decided to stop offering internet technologies, software engineering, all networking classes, internship programs, and several other classes that need to be offered. I am so frustrated with having nothing but gaming courses.

The health clinic is poor, the town of San Angelo has very little to offer, there are very few extracurricular activities to become involved in on campus, I was an RA and the housing here is frightening, and the school spirit is the worst that I have ever seen. The university is also in tremendous debt, having to cut spending everywhere. ASU needs help... so much is wrong with this university.
