Hey! My name is Patrick Burton and I am a sophomore studying Professional Flight in the Ira A Fulton School of Engineering. Originally from Chicago, I moved out here last summer as an Economics major, but decided halfway through my freshman year that I was way more interested in Aviation. I currently hold my Private Pilot’s License, and am working on more ratings as I progress through the ASU flight program, with the end goal of eventually becoming a corporate pilot! Some of my other activities and interests include snowboarding with the Sun Devil Ski/Board Club, refereeing college hockey (catch me at some ASU games), renting aircraft and flying to new destinations with friends, and hiking around Arizona, among other things. I’m super excited to live at Rise this year, and to be able to share it with all of you!
Hi! My name is Tracy and I’m a junior at ASU, currently working on my B.S in Sociology and double minor in business and real estate. I’m originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, but as a military child, I’ve been lucky enough to live in California, Hawaii, and Nashville, Tennessee! I enjoy reading, binging on cheesy TV shows, shopping, and hanging out with my family and friends. I also love getting involved in the community and volunteering. Besides this, I also give ASU campus tours as a member of Devils’ Advocates. I hope to move out to the East Coast after I finish my degrees and either work in the Department of Defense or a real estate development firm. I hope to see you here at Rise, catch you on campus!
Hi, my name is Shiina Suarez and I am a freshman at ASU! I am currently double majoring in Business Communications and Japanese. I am from Las Vegas, Nevada and I decided to go to school in Tempe to get out of Las Vegas for a while and enjoy the Arizona sun. I love going to school and learning new things everyday, along with finding ways to help people in need with my sorority Kappa Alpha Theta! In my free time I enjoy doing makeup and hair, shopping, eating, hanging out with dogs, and hiking. As of right now, I am bilingual in Japanese and English, but I am trying to learn American Sign Language. I'm excited to be a new team member at the Rise on Apache, and I know that living and working at the Rise will make my ASU experience so much better, GO DEVILS!
