Welcome to the fall 2019 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.

Kae Sawyer, Melissa Stine and a growing team of Student Engagement and Academic Success staff oversee many of the student activities in the Fulton Schools.
Kae Sawyer is the Associate Director of Student Engagement in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. She oversees a team that promotes, supports and facilities a comprehensive portfolio of co-curricular and extracurricular offerings for Fulton students to explore their interests and develop valuable skillsets through hands-on design experiences, research opportunities, entrepreneurship and innovation, global engagement, and service learning while promoting leadership development, diversity and inclusion of all students.
Melissa Stine, coordinator, manages activities and functions of Student Engagement, including student organizations and extracurricular programs. She previously worked at the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus Office of Student Engagement, and for ASU University Housing where she worked with the university residential communities and student leaders. She is also a Sun Devil alum, having earned her MEd in higher and postsecondary education at Arizona State University.
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. Student tryouts typically start in September.
Melissa Stine also helps out with the Academic Bowl tryouts and events.
Devils Invent Inventathons
Devils Invent is a series of weekend-long engineering challenge design events where students are charged with designing, building and implementing innovative solutions to thematic problem statements submitted by community and industry partners.
Devils Invent events are targeted at students who are committed to making a difference and developing their entrepreneurial mindset. The challenges are open to freshmen through doctoral students.
Faculty are encouraged to volunteer as mentors or judges. Your expertise in these related fields will be of use in guiding the students to expand their creativity. Assist in design and technical elements, and help students pivot when they are struggling with a concept. Graduate level and doctoral students are also welcome!
