She cares more about Safety than the average student.
Major: Anthropology (This Major's Salary over time) Since Michael Crow (the new university president) has taken over ASU, it's run like a diploma mill... The only difference is that diploma mills don't charge you out the butt for tuition--ASU does and it's only getting worse. 200 associate faculty positions were cut this year, and already classes are at 500-750 students.
DO NOT TAKE ONLINE CLASSES AT ASU! They are scan-tron, multiple choice tests, with lectures and readings that are not created by the professors. The professor is in charge of monitoring blogs for bloated class sizes and that's pretty much it--no interaction with the students and no reading any of their original work. So, it's basically the same as the standardized tests given out in high school except you pay $1000's of dollars for this crap.
Go to a REAL university and not this train wreck that used to be academia until they decided to pay a guy who gets botox (seriously watch Crow's forehead--it doesn't wrinkle!) $800,000 a year to jack up tuition prices and cut much needed staff. Most departments only have 6-8 people working--yet the total number of students attending is 67,000 (plus staff also help out the general public and other employees). Some departments have 2 advisors for 2,000 students or more in the major. It's completely surreal.
So if you like being another number and have tons of money to waste on a "regionally" accredited diploma mill--go to ASU.
I'm hearing the exact same things from my son who is currently a freshman at ASU. He is similarly critical of Michael Crow.
I couldn't agree with you anymore. I'm currently an out of state freshmen and will be transfering at the end of the school year. I would transfer at the end of the semester if it wasn't such a hassel.
