New year, new opportunities!

Judith Karshmer

There’s something satisfying about the start of a new semester. It’s a clean slate for returning students and a fresh start for first-year students. As a university, ASU pulls out all the stops to make the first few weeks on-campus as hospitable as possible for every Sun Devil, starting with ASU Welcome! The goal, of course, is to help set the stage for the support and opportunities available throughout their collegiate career.

To help ensure our students acclimate as smoothly as possible to their new environment we host our own unique Edson College Welcome. This year marks my second time attending and participating in this event and I have to say it’s a real pleasure to get to personally welcome students and start to connect with them in a more casual environment. 

We have some exciting things planned for Welcome Week and I encourage new and current students alike to take advantage of all the activities and events across all campuses. It’s a great way to kick off the academic year and a wonderful opportunity to get to know your peers, advisors, professors and college leadership. Go, Devils!
