An immersive experience for first-year business students, Camp Carey introduces you to everything (and everyone) you need to know to succeed at ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business. Discover your inner leader and unleash your inner Sparky as you make new friends, connect with key people and resources, and map your future in college and beyond.
“Camp Carey connected me with so many people. It also made me feel connected to everything going on at the business school, which got me off to a really great start here.”
(BS Marketing/BA Film ’18)
Everyone! It's the perfect way to meet and greet your new community, which includes fellow first-year business students, continuing W. P. Carey students, faculty, staff, and even alumni. Expect to be inspired by the people you meet — local, out-of-state, and international students all find common ground at Camp Carey.
Some of the most important business skills are best learned through experience, which is why we encourage all W. P. Carey students to start early and practice often. Camp Carey is a great first step.
Camp Carey is all about building important and meaningful connections, meeting new friends, learning about the business school and the resources you need to succeed, and, of course, having fun. All W. P. Carey students are expected to participate in Camp Carey, where you will get to communicate ideas and engage with diverse groups.
