Gold sunburst graphic with the text "Meet the staff: Student ors and teams"

Welcome to the fall 2018 semester. The beginning of a semester is a great time for our new and returning students to get involved in the many opportunities available to them at the Fulton Schools. We have three great ways for our students to meet like-minded students and have fun throughout their studies. Meet the staff behind some of our excellent extracurricular activities.

STUDENT ORGS AND TEAMS

We have more than 60 student organizations and teams for a variety of student interests, including honors and professional societies, diversity organizations, service and major-specific groups as well as competitive teams.

The Student Organization and Resource Fair is the largest concentration of Fulton Schools student groups in one place, at the same time. Students can also meet with academic and other campus resource representatives who will answer questions about their services.

Cortney Loui, coordinator of student engagement, is the go-to person for the Fulton Schools Student Organization promotion, membership retention, Dean’s Funding, officer development, safety training, communication and more. Loui joined ASU in 2013 and has a bachelor’s in public relations and a master’s in college student development from Oklahoma State University.

 

ACADEMIC BOWL

The Academic Bowl gives students the chance to represent the Fulton Schools in a university-wide competition. Teams from ASU’s colleges and schools compete against each other in lightning-fast question-and-answer rounds that cover a wide range of topics. This spring our team took home the first and second prize — so encourage your students to join to help us bring home first. Students can try out between Monday, September 17–Thursday, September 20.

Cortney Loui also supports Academic Bowl teams and coordinates tryouts. Student orgs and Academic Bowl aren’t her only role — she also coordinates the Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) and Master’s Opportunity for Research in Engineering (MORE).
