Here's what our students have learned at ASU:
Being from Nashville, I wanted a new experience – to see a different part of the country. I wanted opportunities to explore nature and mountain bike.
I filled out an online survey and one of my match schools was Adams State.
I love helping people and I became a tutor with Student Support Services and am active volunteering in the community and helping with various San Luis Valley initiatives.
Volunteering helps me to see I have value and self-worth that I can contribute.
