On Monday, May 11, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University will recognize its highest achieving students from the social sciences, natural sciences and humanities at the 2020 virtual convocation ceremony.
Each department and school within The College has selected an outstanding student who has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to academic excellence during their time at ASU. These students will be awarded a prestigious Dean’s Medal in honor of their scholastic achievements.
Arizona State University is continuing to produce winners of the most prestigious scholarships, with five more young people being honored for their accomplishments in research.
Ella Osby is a senior earning her degree in astrophysics at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. Osby is originally from Atlanta, a city that she admits is more known for its light pollution than stargazing.
ASU Now talked with Osby about her intellectual evolution: how she went from wanting to study both Earth and space, to focusing solely on the evolution of stars.
Question: What brought you to ASU and, more specifically, to the School of Earth and Space Exploration?
Victoria Froh is in her junior year at Arizona State University, and in addition to captaining the women’s rugby team, she is working on a double major in Earth and space exploration and environmental chemistry.
This has allowed Froh to design an educational path all her own — a path that includes a healthy dose of the kind of interdisciplinary study that makes the School of Earth and Space Exploration an exciting place for undergraduate students.
On Dec. 17, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University will celebrate academic excellence in the social sciences, natural sciences and humanities during its fall 2019 convocation ceremony.
Arizona State University continues its ascent in the national research rankings, rising to No. 7 in total research expenditures for universities without a medical school, according to the latest National Science Foundation Higher Education Research and Development rankings.
For fiscal year 2018, ASU reported a total of $617.7 million in research expenditures, a record level. That is $72 million more than the $545 million reported in fiscal year 2017.
At one time or another, we were all scientists. There is a reason a child’s first questions include: “What is it?”, “Why?” and “How?”
A physicist never loses that sense of wonder, that drive to understand something that, for now, might remain a mystery. Albert Einstein himself claimed that his real talent was not a superior intelligence, but a passionate and never-ending curiosity. The study of physics has always been about a quest for answers.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest and most diverse academic unit at Arizona State University. With 23 field-spanning departments and schools, its courses delve into everything from how civilizations deal with disasters and construct legends to the chemistry of human emotions and the cultural significance American Indian film. But what does that actually look like?
Arizona State University empowers students to find their places, like the newsroom, the trading floor or the design studio. The three new Goldwater Scholars knew right away that they belonged in the lab.
Madeleine Howell, Maeve Kennedy and Lily Whitler are among 496 winners nationwide of the Goldwater Scholarship, the most prestigious undergraduate award in the nation for students in science, math and engineering fields who aspire to research careers. They were chosen from more than 1,200 applicants.
