Year One: Life at ASU – Kaitlyn's super experience

Kaitlyn DiLorenzo prepares to compete in the "Flash" Competition

"Year One: Life at ASU" is a periodic photo series following five freshmen navigating their first year at ASU. This installment checks in on Kaitlyn DiLorenzo as she settles in and learns how to juggle homework and time to have fun.

Arizona State University freshman Kaitlyn DiLorenzo says she didn't quite know what to expect during her first year as a student in Barrett, The Honors College at ASU's West campus. But the Prescott, Arizona, native says, "I kind of love college." Among the surprises is her appreciation for the Human Event, a Barrett class focusing on the development of humanity. "We read books such as Gilgamesh, the Tao Te Ching, and Plato's Symposium and discuss them in class. My roommate and I love the class so much that we bought a bamboo plant and named it Lao Tzu."
