7 unexpected ways to get involved

hacks against humanity

There are a gajillion* ways to get involved at ASU, whether your goal is to make new friends, explore an interest or be a part of the community. We’re shining the light on seven less commonly known ways to get involved that you may not have heard of yet.

1. Help shape the future of the university

Students who serve on university boards or committees have the chance to make a direct impact on university policies, planning and development. The open positions are varied and include the Student Health Advisory Board and the Technology Advisory Board. Once you join a board or committee, you’ll be able to attend meetings virtually through Zoom. 

2. Express yourself

If you love sharing your opinions on life around campus, apply to ASU’s independent, student-run news organization, The State Press. You can also submit a letter to the editor on a topic you care about or volunteer to be a part of the student-run radio station, KASC (Blaze radio).

3. Help international students thrive

Make a friend from another part of the world by becoming an ASU Peer Mentor. This program pairs current American or international students with a new international student. You help the new student navigate campus resources, transition to life at ASU and more.

4. Make a difference

Lead social change in your community and the world by becoming a part of Changemaker Central. Pitch a startup, join a community improvement project, find a vounteer opportunity or explore even more ways to get involved.

5. Attend an on-campus or virtual event

There is something happening every day at ASU. We love this ASU involvement calendar because it covers fun events like virtual involvement fairs and virtual or in-person community circles, where you can meet and get to know other Sun Devils. For more events, check out the university-wide calendar.

6. Explore the arts

If you love art, you can visit the ASU Art Museum at no charge, just reserve your tickets in advance (and don’t forget your mask). Then check out ASU Gammage’s Digital Connections series, including masterclasses, fun demos and other experiences for you to engage with artists, musicians, actors and more. 

7. Join a tutoring group

Improve your grades and make new friends by joining a supplemental instruction study group. You’re paired with people studying the same subject matter as you to learn with the help of an SI instructor. All SI groups have been moved online and all of the sessions will be livestreamed.
