A note from the dean
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has been my home for three decades. I’m confident about our ability to educate socially aware, critically thinking citizens who will bring about positive change in the world. That transformation starts with the support of parents and families. Together, we can create a legacy of scholars who are eager to pursue a higher education and, with it, we can drastically change the number of opportunities available for these individuals with a college degree.
I want to drive home the importance of an informed and supportive family in our community because they play a vital role in our students’ success. Whether you’re encouraging your student to take advantage of free tutoring or explaining the benefits associated with study abroad and travel, you can empower your son or daughter to take personal responsibility for their academic achievements at ASU.
ASU Family Weekend 2020
Arizona State University’s upcoming Family Weekend is a great opportunity to learn about Sun Devil traditions and participate in fun virtual activities. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ event on Friday, Nov. 6, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., will offer families the chance to virtually tour Armstrong Hall, hear about research and engagement opportunities, and ask The College’s deans questions during a Q&A session.
Support for student success
Your student can receive academic support from their peers on a variety of subjects, from writing to math. The range of tutoring services available will help make academic success easy.
In addition to financial aid packages, our college is proud to offer a range of scholarships and awards to our students. Our schools and departments also have scholarships available.
College can transform generations of families
First-generation students change the trajectory of their family linages by instilling a desire to pursue higher education. When a first-generation student completes a degree, the chances of other generations following down a similar path are incredibly high. Education in a family linage can dramatically change and alter the course for future generations of scholars.
