Welcome to the Sun Devil family!

Resources for parents

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the dynamic and exciting community of creatives! We are committed to supporting and encouraging creative students as they embark on these new academic adventures. As part of the Sun Devil family, we also want to make you aware of the numerous resources available to students in order to ease their transition to college life and to continue to support them along the way in all their endeavors. 

As a student in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, your student will be encouraged to question, learn, reflect and step out of their comfort zone. We encourage you to question, learn and grow alongside them, taking advantage of all ASU has to offer.
