Pathways for the Future Scholar

Meet Will Noll, Pathways for the Future Scholar

My name is Will Noll, and I’m a freshman in the State Farm Pathways for the Future (PFF) program. This semester will be my second term in the PFF program. Initially, one of my main motivations for joining the program was the financial component in order to ease the cost of tuition. However, after only a short time of being involved in the program, I’ve come to appreciate how many opportunities are offered by the program.

Being a First-Year student means also being inexperienced in many areas, which the PFF program has helped me to target and to prioritize in order to become well-prepared for the workforce. In only a semester, there were workshops ranging from networking to resume crafting and even one-on-one meetings with the PFF coordinator in order to assess my personal path to success. The faculty works to the best of their ability to provide you with the resources you need to be successful. 

Unlike what some would expect, being one of the only freshmen in the program hasn’t been a disadvantage in the slightest. I’m surrounded by other motivated and passionate students who want to see me succeed and can oftentimes offer me invaluable advice. There are also endless resources to help guide my path at ASU. To elaborate, I’m currently majoring in biomedical engineering, with a desire to pursue a minor in biochemistry. I also plan to take advantage of ASU’s 4+1 program while still remaining a Barrett Honors College graduate. 

PFF provides me with the personnel to advise my decisions and steer me in the right direction. Not to mention, they do their best to make sure you’re successful both academically and in the workforce. The pandemic has truly made times hard for everyone, and PFF has been a great help to ensure that nobody in the program is left behind."  For more information on Pathways for the future visit or contact a PFF admissions representative at (844) 353-7775 or
