November 25, 2015

Arizona State University freshman Kaitlyn DiLorenzo has found her rhythm. The Prescott native who is majoring in mathematics on the West campus says the freshmen experience hasn't been too stressful or difficult. In fact, she seems to be enjoying it quite a bit, balancing her studies in Barrett, the Honors College and hanging with friends during various campus events. 

In this installment of "Year One: Life at ASU," a periodic photo series following five freshmen navigating their first year at ASU, DiLorenzo checks out Sparky's Carnival and rallies some friends to sign up for a 5K.
