Amber Shafor - - School of Social Work

Hi, my name is Amber. I am currently a junior at ASU, and I am pursing my degree in Social Work. I transferred to ASU last spring and I absolutely love the downtown campus! I am a full time student and I also volunteer at a visitation center for foster children. I have lived in Phoenix for three years with my boyfriend and our three dogs. Before I moved to Phoenix, I lived in Lake Havasu. I have also lived in Flagstaff, Atlanta and California.

  • We significantly increase advising availability and accessibility for new and returning students at regular and extended hours throughout the year.
