I went to ASU to study computer science. The faculty was decent. Of course, you have to be careful whom you choose. There are good ones as well as bad ones. The graduate engineering programs are filled with International students. I had professors who let plagiarism go and also professors who gave academic dishonesty grade(X).

Things are improving. since when I was there. The academic standards are increasing. Most CS grads end up with decent jobs unless of course they spent all their time up taking easier courses with no vision.

Beware if you are thinking to take the thesis option for masters. The department is underfunded(when I was there) and most people end up staying at the university for years or taking up PhD instead.

Tempe is a pretty safe city with below average crime. There are tons of new companies coming to the lake side.

I ended up learning stuff and with a decent job. So I guess it was alright. And what they say is true, The parties are DOPE.
