The Hugh Downs School faculty and staff welcomed our incoming freshman undergraduate students and new doctoral graduate students with orientations to the school and ASU.
Dr. Linda C. Lederman, professor and director, welcomed our new Communication majors on Tuesday, August 19, and shared information about the Hugh Downs School and Mr. Hugh Downs. Faculty and staff introduced students to some of our courses and special activities they can participate in throughout the year (speech and debate, internships, study abroad, strategic communication research, civil communication, and our student organization, AHC).
Students then joined their peers at the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences welcome assembly at Grady Gammage to learn more about their academic college and meet staff. The Fall Welcome for incoming freshman is part of the larger College of Liberal Arts & Sciences assembly and provides a great time for students to get acquainted with the faculty and staff in their major and learn about a variety of available resources.

The Hugh Downs School also welcomed its new and returning doctoral graduate students as part of our graduate program orientation beginning August 11. There were several events, meetings, and activities for students to meet faculty, staff, review policies and procedures, and become familiar with the graduate program.
