Meet some of our featured graduates who have started their journey and have quite a future ahead of them. Read their stories and more from ASU Now.
Sarah Braunisch found her passion for planetary science when she joined the Christensen Research Group, led by Regents Professor Philip Christensen.
Rachel Adam has always loved the outdoors, so when she decided to attend ASU, it was only natural that she would choose to pursue a degree in geological sciences.
Congratulations on your degree and important achievement. The research you performed was inevitably an interesting and hopefully stimulating experience, and I hope that it was as intellectually rewarding as it was challenging. I wish you much success as you proceed to the next step in your professional career.
So thrilled to see your success in the face of so many challenges! And we're counting on you to take all you are and all you know and help to change the world, starting with your particular corner of it. And write home often! You're a part of the SESE family forever. So many congratulations!
I wanted to send my hearty congratulations to the 2020 SESE graduates who have persevered through these unprecedented times. Although the normal mass celebrations are not currently possible, this should not diminish your joy and the significance of your completion to this portion of your educational journey. Whether in-person or virtual, we are rooting for you!
Everyone that has graduated this year has done something very few have accomplished, obtained a degree in the midst of a global pandemic. That's not something to be taken lightly, it's a huge accomplishment, and even though the celebrations can't be the same, please know that you all have done something special.

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” Charles Darwin
Congratulations! May your future work continue to leave it’s mark on generations to come.
Congratulations on persevering through the storm and earning your degree. It’s hard enough to be successful without the added stress of a raging pandemic. Nonetheless, you have performed admirably and I know you’ll make us proud!
