Year One: Life at ASU — Eric collaborates, for humanity

College student working
October 19, 2015

"Year One: Life at ASU" is a periodic photo series following five freshmen navigating their first year at ASU. This installment checks in on Eric Arellano, a Flinn scholar from Tuscon who recently changed his major to computer science. The shift in major is noteworthy as we see Arellano, here, taking part in Hacks for Humanity, an event where participants scramble to create an app for social good - in 36 hours.

"This integrates extremely well with my mission to use technology to change the world," Eric said during the event. 

See what Eric was up to earlier in the semester in these past galleries:
