The transfer process was seamless.

I have utilized many services this semester such as counseling, tutor center ( student success center) the library as well as a shoe and sock drive for the downtown homeless with a fellow social work student and attended transfer orientation. All of the above services were offered to me free as a student. It is my belief that the more that you put into your education the more that you will get out of it. Being engaged at ASU is easy and enhances the experience.
