Why ASU?

  • KENYA SHAVERS: Sophomore, Communications/History

    "Why choose ASU? Because 'Opportunity is Here!' This is a saying students will hear throughout their experience on campus. But it's more than a motto; it's true. With dedicated faculty and staff and a welcoming student body, ASU is like a family. You will be pushed to accept challenges, defeat odds and never stop chasing your goals."

  • CAMERON KELLEY: Senior, Business/Marketing

    "Thanks to #myASU, I went from being a guy from Connecticut who knew absolutely no one, to an active student leader and SGA chairman. The experiences I have gained will help me stand out in today's competitive job market. It's not just a great education here, but also a great support system for students to follow their dreams no matter what obstacles they may face."

  • STACI JONES: B.A. Communications ('16)

    "I always knew I wanted to attend an HBCU, and I visited many of them. Visiting ASU was different. Instead of them telling me everything they had to offer, they showed me instead what I had to offer to ASU. The faith they showed me on my visit led me to making one of the best decisions I've ever made -- choosing ASU. Through the many opportunities ASU provided for me, I found my purpose."

  • Dr. MANOJ K. MISHRA: Associate Professor of Biology

    "Quality teaching and ground-breaking research experiences are two of the biggest offerings to ASU students. The Cancer Biology Research and Training program provides cutting-edge research, community outreach and works toward eliminating cancer health disparities. The passion here for education and research makes ASU a great center of learning."
