Student veteran academic success

As you pursue your degree at ASU, we want you to know that the Pat Tillman Veterans Center and staff are dedicated to your success. Named in honor of one of the greatest Sun Devils ever, we challenge you to carry on Pat Tillman’s legacy as a scholar. Many are aware of his accomplishments on the gridiron, but many do not realize that he earned his BS in finance in only three and a half years, that he had a 3.8 GPA and was working on a master’s in history while playing for the Arizona Cardinals.

Whether you are still on active duty, a veteran or a spouse or dependent, the center staff is here to answer your questions, provide direct assistance and help connect you with resources to help you succeed.

Air Force veteran turned engineer lands NASA internship

Kristopher Maham’s life as a college student is anything but traditional.

He is a U.S. Air Force veteran, husband, father of two girls and a first-time undergraduate student at the age of 37 in Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Now he is further distinguishing himself through a prestigious internship with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Maham, an electrical engineering student, will spend one semester each year interning on-site at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida for the duration of his undergraduate studies.

“I enrolled at ASU because of the reputation the Pat Tillman Veterans Center has for transitioning vets back to civilian and student life,” said Maham. He also knew the Fulton Schools’ programs are highly rated.
