From home to ASU

International students' photos show their journey to ASU and life as a Sun Devil

From home to ASU
December 21, 2015

International students travel thousands of miles to attend Arizona State University, and each journey is unique.

There are about 9,800 international undergraduate and graduate students at ASU this year, with more than a third from China and about 23 percent from India.

The Coalition of International Students helps to ease the transition by connecting the young people with each other and by holding events to make them feel that ASU is home. During the spring semester, the organization will hold a Lunar New Year celebration, a career conference, a cricket tournament and a world festival.

The coalition recently held a photo contest for students to submit images that best represented the theme "From home to ASU."

Here are the winning images, selected by the coalition staff from dozens of entries.
