Amazing school all around. There are many clubs, resources, and faculty members to help you graduate and experience the campus life. The best part of ASU would be the academic resourses provided where professors have plenty of office hours and the tutoring centers are absolutely helpful when it comes to understanding certain concepts. I would recommend for sure.
