As our students progress through their Fulton Schools academic journeys, they can help their peers and gain valuable skills as leaders in and out of the classroom through a variety of programs and opportunities. As a mentor, ambassador, camp counselor, tutor, student council member or other types of leader, students have fun, make friends and contribute to the Fulton Schools community.
These opportunities aren’t possible without the help of our dedicated staff.
Fulton Ambassadors are a select group who give the ASU student perspective to prospective students at recruitment events and outreach activities. These outgoing student volunteers give tours, host students on shadow days, share personal experiences and get the word out about opportunities available at the Fulton Schools. They represent all majors at the Fulton Schools on both the Tempe and Polytechnic campuses.
Do you know a student who would make a great Fulton Ambassador? The Fulton Ambassador application for the Tempe campus is open through Monday, October 31, 2016! Polytechnic campus students can apply through the end of the 2016-2017 academic year.
Senior Coordinator for Student Recruitment Kaely Graham and Coordinator for Undergraduate Recruitment Kimberly Robinson are faculty advisors for the Tempe and Polytechnic campus Fulton Ambassador organizations.
In Kaely’s advising role, her goal is to provide the Fulton Ambassadors with the support and guidance needed to ensure that the experience prospective students and their guests receive is engaging and informative. She and Kimberly want to ensure that every guest is aware of the Fulton Difference and that they encourage our students to customize their experience with the multitude of opportunities and support offered within the Fulton Schools.
Kimberly enjoys her role as the advisor for the Polytechnic campus Fulton Ambassadors because she is able to assist them to share the Fulton Difference with prospective students and their families. She supports our ambassadors and helps to guide them to bring the best experience to the visiting families for the short time that they are here with us on campus. Not only can the Fulton Ambassadors share what ASU has to offer these students, but also the resources available within the Fulton Schools. Our ambassadors have the opportunity through this organization to learn many skills needed not only in life but in a work environment and we at the Fulton Schools are excited to be a part of their lives in this way.
Residential community leaders
All students living on campus have student residential community leaders on their floors. Upper division students in these positions can make a difference in these students’ success, keep them engaged in the community, connect them with other Fulton Schools resources and create a great residential community environment.
Community assistants are community leaders on each floor of a residence hall. They actively build relationships with other students on their floor community, serving as a mentor, resource referral and role model to others. Community assistants plan activities for residents to help keep freshmen engaged with the Fulton Schools.
Peer mentors help students who live on or off campus.
Residential peer mentors are upper-division Fulton students who live and work in the Fulton Schools Residential Community. You can help freshmen by serving as a resource for academic and social success.
Off-campus peer mentors help build a Fulton Schools identity and connection with freshmen who don’t live on campus. They share knowledge about Fulton Engineering resources, services and events and serve as a friendly person who students can recognize as a mentor and leader.
If you’d like to help our students and know how to have fun, watch Inner Circle for information about open positions and information sessions to help you learn more about these opportunities.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants and ASU 101 Section Leaders
Sophomores, juniors and seniors can serve as Undergraduate Teaching Assistants, or UGTAs, or Section Leaders in a variety of Fulton Schools classes, including ASU 101, FSE 100 and EGR 101.
UGTAs and Section Leaders assist faculty members with exploratory and collaborative learning activities. They also help students by acting as a cultural bridge from high school to a university environment, promoting students’ self confidence and self reliance and helping them navigate ASU and the Fulton Schools. These students spend about five hours a week in your classroom or lab, and meet with you regularly to plan activities. They can also hold office hours and review sessions
UGTAs and Section Leaders spend about five hours per week assisting a faculty member in the classroom or lab and also meet with their faculty member to prepare for activities.

Summer Camp Counselors
Each summer, we host a number of camps designed to engage K-12 students in science, technology, engineering and math-related activities to inspire a passion for STEM. From robotics to mobile app creation, our goal is to share the excitement of engineering and technology with aspiring future engineers and problem solvers.
Faculty and staff can help promote and recommend camp counseling positions to your exceptional students. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Lauren Preble at Lauren.Preble@asu.edu to recommend anyone who might be a great fit!
