Three Arizona State University Global Launch alumni share their experiences
Hear from three ASU Global Launch alumni about their experiences adjusting to Arizona State University through immersive campus English classes, supportive student advisors, and extracurricular activities.
Two years after arriving at Global Launch, Afghan women flourishing at ASU

Since then, they have graduated from the ASU Global Launch Campus Immersion program and earned admission to Arizona State University degree programs.

These smart, bold students are just a few of the many success stories from Global Launch.
