Hello! My name is Arianna Buchanan and I am a proud alum of the College of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences (CALES) and the Norton School of Human Ecology! I am originally from San Luis, AZ, and a proud transfer student. In May 2020 I graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Family Studies & Human Development, which has been renamed to Human Development & Family Science (HDFS). I have an M.Ed in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. My role is to support first-year Fashion Industry's Science & Technology students in their transition to the university. I also support students who are considering majoring in the Fashion Industry's Science & Technology. I am happy to chat with you about the program, and what it has to offer, and help you make the best and most informed decision. Overall, I am here to support you in achieving your personal, academic, and career goals!

In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, doing trampoline rebound workouts, and diamond art. 

Fashion is for everyone. We can help you find YOUR best FIT!
