Submission Information
Ruth Jolly

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.
