Join us in welcoming students and their families to the Fulton Schools community, Friday, October 13, 2017 during ASU’s Family Weekend! We’re hosting events at both Tempe and Polytechnic campuses and we need your help to ensure they go off without a hitch.

Faculty volunteers are needed to mingle with attendees, share their research projects and talk about their experiences at the Fulton Schools.

Professor of Practice Dan McCarville, who’s attended many Fulton Schools Family Weekend events in the past, sees it as an opportunity to assuage any fears incoming freshmen might have about faculty and get to know the new students. “It’s a way to let the students and family members know that most of us are easily approachable, as well as give the young students a bit of advice, or actually just verifying what many of their parents have been telling them already about completing an engineering degree.” 

As an industrial engineer, McCarville notes that the event is a great way to tell students just beginning their studies about some lesser-known programs or disciplines. “Most high schoolers are familiar with aerospace, mechanical, electrical, and others that are more directly related to courses they completed in high school — I personally was not aware of the field of Industrial Engineering until my junior year in college. And, these events can simply be a lot of fun! The impact we have on these young students is very rewarding.”
