It’s a new school year, and for some of you it’s a whole new university (welcome, class of 2020)! That can be overwhelming, especially at a big university like ASU.
But there are three easy ways to meet new friends, find new opportunities and have fun.
Student organizations and teams
We have more than 60 student organizations and teams, many of which were on display at Fall Welcome. You can join honors and professional societies, diversity organizations, service and major-specific groups and competitive teams. There are plenty of opportunities for you to find a group that suits your needs, whether it is gaining hands-on experience working on a team or socializing with peers who share the same passion.
In addition to Fulton Schools Student Organizations, honors students in Barrett, the Honors College have additional organizations, and graduate students can get involved in the Graduate and Professional Student Organization.
Represent the Fulton Schools in a university-wide competition with the Academic Bowl. Teams from ASU’s colleges and schools compete against each other in lightning-fast question-and-answer rounds. Questions can cover any topic — from world politics and pop culture, to history and geography, to world literature. Not only will you have a blast firing off answers in a fast-paced event, but you also have a chance to win scholarship money and the coveted championship title.
In 2015 our team took home second prize — help us win first! Tryouts are August 30–September 2, and the competition is November 7–9, 2016.
Fulton Diversity Initiatives
Fulton Schools students come from all around the world. Engage with our diverse community through Heritage Month events, a speaker series and professional development programming to increase awareness, celebrate diversity and build community.
