Former Central Arizona College student Jared Gale graduated from Arizona State University in May, with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. 

As he was working in the copper mines of Arizona, Gale reflected on the physical demands on his health and decided to enroll at CAC. 

He then used MyPath2ASU®, a program that assists with student mobility between community college and ASU, to plan out his transfer term by term.  

Right away, Gale pursued his passion for electrical engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.  

But in addition to being a student, Gale is a father. 

“I had to bring my daughter to school many times,” Gale said. “And all my professors seemed to enjoy having her be a part of the class.”

Additionally, Gale participated in the undergraduate teaching assistant program, which allowed him to give back to his peers.  

Angela Askey, the Director of CAC Public Relations and Marketing, said Gale’s success is a testament to the quality of education and resources available at CAC and ASU.  

“CAC provides an excellent foundation for students to prepare for their transfer to universities like ASU,” she said. “And MyPath2ASU® offers a smooth and cost-effective pathway for transfer students.” 

Gale offers invaluable advice to new transfer students, emphasizing the importance of consistent effort. 

Show up, do the work and follow through to the end, he said.
