There are a variety of on-campus resources focused on supporting undocumented and DACA-mented students including DREAMzone office hours, Support Circles, and the student-led Undocumented Students for Education Equity.
We encourage students to access additional services, via student services, career services, first-year success center, sun devil fitness, student and cultural engagement, and the disability resource center.
Office hours are currently hosted virtually through Zoom. If you would like to book an appointment, please use Calendly. Our summer 2020 office hours are Thursday from 2:00-4:00 p.m. and Friday 2:00-5:00 p.m. Students are welcome to meet with other DACA students who can help guide and assist students in finding the right opportunities and scholarships for them. Our staff will also be available to answer any questions.
Berenice Pelayo - Student Specialist
Berenice is an Arizona native. Her parents are both immigrants who implemented the understanding of the immigrant narrative from a young age. That coupled with a personal interest in immigration's long history in the United States inspired her to get involved with DREAMzone. She is studying business law and is also a Barrett scholar. Her hobbies include traveling, reading, and playing tennis.
Carlos Yanez - Student Specialist
Carlos is a DACA student originally from Chihuahua, Mexico, who migrated to Phoenix when he was 6 years old. He is a junior at ASU working towards his bachelor's in justice studies and transborder studies. Carlos will be the first in his family to graduate college. He is passionate about immigration, the right to migration and is studying towards being an immigration lawyer.
Support circle provides a safe place for undocumented students or students with undocumented parents to share their experiences and feelings with other students. DREAMzone works with Counseling Services at ASU to host these sessions. Students receive emotional support as well as advice on staying healthy.
Due to COVID-19, we are postponing all in-person support circles for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. Our resources for undocumented, DACA and students from families with mixed immigration status are still available to you virtually. Email us at email@example.com to set up an appointment with us through Zoom or by phone.
ASU Counseling services are available virtually as well to talk with you; identify solutions or support, and connect you with services at ASU or in the community. Visit counseling.asu.edu or call 480-965-6146 to set up an appointment.
We also encourage you to explore TAO Connect, a free self-help tool that provides you with resources for managing stress, calming worries, improving moods, enchanting relationships, and maintaining emotional wellbeing. Get started at bit.ly/asu-tao-connect
