Alum  Brian Pavey with Advisor Michael Currey at graduation

You're in good hands. 

"As I sat through my first-ever college course at ASU, I noticed that my introductory class was larger than the entirety of my high school. You can imagine how nervous I was for this new and radically different experience! My fears were immediately put to rest when I met my advisor. He welcomed me and explained that the SHPRS advising team has a goal of providing encouragement, support, and a family-like atmosphere to help me achieve the highest form of success at ASU. After graduation, I realized that my advisor was an integral part of my success. He was more than a mentor and advisor...he was an encourager and friend. I'll always be grateful for my amazing experience within the SHPRS community at ASU."

- Brian Pavey, 2014 Philosophy and Religious Studies graduate
