ASU clubs gather communities around sports, culture, academics, advocacy and more.
Sun Devils host a week of events about women’s health
For all the progress that has been made to ensure women’s health and reproductive rights in the United States and around the world, as the year 2020 draws to a close, there is still more work to do. That’s why ASU student organizations hosted Paint it Pink week Nov. 9–13 at ASU.
Paint it Pink was a weeklong webinar series focused on reproductive health and women’s rights. That's On Period collaborated with the United Nations Association and the Global Women's Health Initiative to bring as many people as possible to the events. The initiative consisted of three webinars focusing on health, advocacy and service. The three groups brought together healthcare workers, advocates and nonprofit organizations.
Student-led virtual events unite international Sun Devils around the world
Arizona State University’s Coalition of International Students continues to promote communication among international students despite having members spread across the world.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 and ASU’s transition to remote classes, international students have faced a series of challenges due to travel restrictions and public health guidelines. Students have grappled with tough decisions as to whether to travel home or stay in Arizona, how best to balance their academic needs and when they can see family again.
Through these challenges, CIS has continued to host events virtually through Instagram, Facebook and Zoom to keep spirits and connection up.
Picking a career field can be a daunting task for students. Fortunately, Sun Devils have the opportunity to connect with and talk to professionals in their field of interest.
ASU’s Career and Professional Development Services offers the ASU Mentor Network, a platform where current students, alumni and industry professionals can connect with one another to discuss career paths, hiring processes or even course selection.
On January 5, 1911, 10 Black men studying at Indiana University, Bloomington, founded Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. Almost 40 years later, six Black men studying at what is now ASU brought the first Black fraternity chapter to Arizona with Kappa Alpha Psi’s Gamma Iota chapter.
Current Gamma Iota Polemarch, or president of the chapter, global marketing junior Julian Flanigan and marketing junior Austyn Lee sat down with Student Life to discuss the daunting yet unwavering histories and victories of their fraternity and their chapter.
