Student Experience

Holi, one of the most colorful and photogenic of all Hindu cultural festivals, traditionally welcomes spring, asks for good harvests, and honors events in Hinduism. Each year, ASU’s Indian Student Association organizes a Holi celebration on the Tempe campus, and many W. P. Carey MBA students take time out of their busy schedules to join the fun.

Senior Lissa Leibson has been organizing events big and small since she was a teenager, so she jumped at the chance to serve as a director for Camp Carey, the business school’s outdoor getaway for incoming first-year students. But planning and experience were no match for the unexpected: rain. Lots of it. The solution? Soft skills saved her.

Valley high school students learn to set and reach goals through the Fleischer Scholars summer program sponsored by one of Arizona's most successful entrepreneurs, Mort Fleischer.

If a photographer takes 1,000 pictures, perhaps five will turn out. However, the photographer got 995 lessons on how to take a better picture. That’s the philosophy of Shashank Rajani: photographer, technology whiz, and the 2017-2018 Department of Information Systems Club president.
