At the Fulton Schools, you have many opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom. Meet new friends, conduct research, find your inner entrepreneur, help your peers, introduce new generations to the joys of engineering and, above all, have fun! Here are six of ways to customize your experience.
Attention freshmen engineering students! Are you interested in developing leadership skills and boosting your resume? Consider enrolling this semester in a four-week leadership program designed to cultivate skillful thinking so that you can maximize the impact of your engineering education.
Being a Fulton Schools student doesn’t mean “all work and no play.” Our traditional ceremonial symbol is the lightsaber, so you know we try not to take things too seriously! We hope that in addition to all of your studying, you will take some time to have fun. First-year students already experienced E2, our traditional welcome weekend extravaganza. And hopefully, you know that we wear gold on Fridays. Here are a few of our other traditions you shouldn’t miss out on.
As you progress through your studies at the Fulton Schools, you have more opportunities to help your peers in a variety of leadership positions and to inspire future Sun Devil engineers and technologists as community ambassadors.
One of the best ways you can enhance your engineering education is through hands-on research projects. Research and lab experience help you develop your interests and make a great impression to future employers and graduate programs.
You’re a Fulton Schools student because you’re a builder and innovator. You have great ideas and even greater potential to become a game-changing entrepreneur. What better place to get innovating than the #1 most innovative university? We have the opportunities to get you started.

Welcome to the fall 2018 semester, and welcome class of 2022! No matter where you are in your Fulton Schools journey, there are so many opportunities, clubs and organizations to navigate. But right here, we have a few easy ways you can get involved.
With more than 60 student organizations and teams on campus, you have more than 60 ways connect with your peers! There’s something out there for you, whether it’s an honor or professional society, diversity organization, service or major-specific group or a competitive team. Discover a group that suits your interest through a hands-on experience in a team or socializing with peers who share your passion.
For engineering students, getting involved in student organizations is a must. William Craig agrees as a member of Society of Automotive Engineers.
“I believe that involvement in a student org is almost a requirement for engineering students,” Craig said. “You’re surrounded by intelligent, motivated people who are driven to do more. You get help preparing for career fairs, special access to companies and make professional connections that will stay with you for life.”
Not sure where to start? The Student Organization and Resource Fair is the largest concentration of Fulton Schools student groups at the same place, at the same time. You can also meet with academic and other campus resource representatives who will answer your questions about their services.
