Student Life

Experience life as a Sun Devil at ASU

As a student in the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics, you’ll study at Arizona State University’s largest and most historic campus in Tempe with more than 55,000 students. You’ll stroll down popular walking corridors alongside imaginative architecture and subtropical landscaping, complete with palm trees over 90 feet tall – quite a sight in the middle of the Arizona desert. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend a game at the Sun Devil Stadium or a Broadway play at Gammage Auditorium. There’s something for everyone.

Clubs and Organizations

If you want to take advantage of your college experience, you should get involved with fellow students. ASU has a variety of extracurricular activities, clubs and leadership organizations to join. Our school also has a Student Leader Club and many research initiatives you can join to meet students with similar interests.

Whatever your issue, our advisors are here to help guide you toward graduation.

Partaking in an internship is a great way to gain on-the-job experience and demonstrate your true abilities as you build relationships with outside agencies. Internships also allow you to apply concepts and theories learned in class, obtain insight into the workforce and discover your interests in family and child-related fields.
