Student Success

Student Engagement

Getting involved — and staying connected — sets you up for success in college and in your career. Beyond student clubs and organizations, the W. P. Carey student engagement team provides many interesting and engaging community-building activities for you to explore throughout the year. Taking advantage of these opportunities will help you develop great leadership, networking, and professional skills, and make your years at ASU even more meaningful.

Ongoing Events

Each semester, the W. P. Carey School of Business welcomes many new students to campus at ASU New Student Orientation. In just one day, you’ll meet W. P. Carey students, faculty, and staff, learn about W. P. Carey resources, and select and enroll in your first-semester classes.

Held the second week of each semester on the Dean’s Patio, Involvement Week is your chance to explore 45+ business clubs and organizations. It’s a can’t-miss event for new students, and makes it easy to find out about groups to join, interact with current members and representatives, and learn how to participate in meetings.

Dine with Deans offers students an opportunity to get to know W. P. Carey deans, and discuss their experience at the W. P. Carey School over a relaxed lunch. Three to four of these lunches are hosted each semester.

The Executive Luncheon Series brings business leaders to campus several times throughout the academic year, to talk to students in a casual, relaxed environment. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions and discuss current business topics with speakers from a variety of well-known brands and industries.

Seasonal Events

Especially beneficial for incoming freshmen, Fall Welcome introduces you to campus, ASU and W. P. Carey traditions, and the different services, people, and resources that sponsor your success at the W. P. Carey School.

Camp Carey is a three-day retreat for incoming W. P. Carey freshmen, held at the beginning of the fall semester. All business freshmen attend this signature event, which sets you up for a great first year at the W. P. Carey School.

Spring to Success is the biggest, business-only recruiting event of the year. Paired with other career development tools and services from the W. P. Carey Business Career Center, it’s an exceptional source of internship and full-time employment offers.

Each fall, Family Weekend welcomes families to attend class with their student, meet ASU faculty and staff, cheer for the Sun Devils at a home football game, and enjoy a luncheon and other activities hosted by the W. P. Carey School.

Homecoming includes a full week of traditions and events in the fall semester. Be sure to hike “A” Mountain for the lantern walk, help build a float for the parade, cheer the Sun Devils to victory, and enjoy the games and activities for business students at W. P. Carey Game Day.

Devils in Disguise invites students from across the university to commit one morning to service during this annual event. Join fellow business students and hundreds of Sun Devil volunteers to simultaneously complete hundreds of service hours at nonprofit and government agencies Valley-wide.

Teams from colleges across ASU — including one from W. P. Carey — battle it out on topics of science, history, sports, business, and literature, during ASU’s annual Academic Bowl in the fall.
