Journalism graduate plans to keep her ASU connection alive
When asked what she’ll miss most about ASU, Heather Fulton might be one of the few graduating seniors to say, “My classes!”
Fulton will receive her degree from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in December, and she described her experience there as truly memorable. “I’ve loved my education here,” explained Fulton, “and will miss the one-on-one instruction from my journalism professors.” Fulton entered ASU with an academic scholarship, two majors and plenty of ambition. She was on the dean’s list for four consecutive semesters. Now, she is leaving with plenty of memories and experiences, not to mention a full-time job in her field.
After graduation, Fulton will work for Green Living AZ magazine in Scottsdale, and further her knowledge about global and local sustainability issues. In the future she aims to do public relations work with an environmentally conscious company.
Fulton believes the greatest advice she could give would be to get involved as much as possible. She was a member of Cronkite Village and Senior Year Experience. She also performed operetta Luisa Fernanda in 2007, where some of her fondest memories as a Sun Devil were formed.
She participated in the Study Abroad program, studying for two semesters at the University of Birmingham in England. Fulton plans to keep her connection to the university alive by joining the ASU Alumni Association and participating in its Arizona State Young Alumni program, a new group for alums under the age of 35.
