Salute to Service: Honoring our veterans
Salute to Service is a two-week celebration honoring military service members, first responders, and anyone who serves the community.
The campaign’s scope has expanded to include service beyond a military focus; this year the campaign has expanded to all areas of the university involved in service.
The Salute to Service timeframe also allows ASU to showcase the number of initiatives related to service that exist at ASU to both internal (ASU staff, faculty, and students) and external audiences (media, donors, and surrounding communities, among others).
We invite you to check out all of the events, service member highlights, and the resources available through the Pat Tillman Veteran’s Center. the ASU Alumni Veterans Chapter and the MyPath2ASU transfer program.
Transfer student, military veteran and Pathways for the Future scholar shares his journey to ASU
During ASU’s Salute to Service 2022, Pathways for the Future highlights Gil Ruiz, an out-of-state transfer student and military veteran. Gil is currently finishing his degree in Engineering at ASU, and he believes resources like the Pathways for the Future and MyPath2ASU program have helped him reach this point by enabling him to spend more time pursuing his education and building a professional network.
ASU Transfer students and former military service members like Gil are finding that ASU’s Pathways for the Future scholarship provides more than just financial assistance. Pathways and MyPath2ASU offer comprehensive support to students looking to transfer to ASU, wherever they may be in their academic journey.
“These days people find it difficult to find the right resources for school, especially veterans,” says Gil. “At ASU, I've never had to struggle with that. That's made life so much easier.”
