Judy Drage Logan '64 B.A.E.

Which groups or activities were you most involved in at ASU? What did you gain from that involvement?

I was most involved in Kappa Delta Sorority, Angel Flight, and Golden Hearts of Sigma Phi Epsilon.  I gained leadership experience while holding offices in all the groups, formed lasting friendships, and gained a sense of belonging and pride in ASU.

What’s your favorite ASU memory?

Two of my favorite ASU memories were whitewashing the “A” on Tempe Butte during freshman orientation and the Greek Sing, which was held in the spring in front of West Hall.

How did your education at ASU prepare you for your career?

I have been an educator for the past 40-plus years in five states, a U.S. Department of Defense school, and an international school in Seoul, Korea.  Throughout my career, my teaching credentials from ASU were accepted by other states without question.  I was well prepared for my career and carried a degree from a respected university.

How did ASU help you achieve your dream?

Attending ASU was just the beginning for me as a lifelong learner.  My learning was no longer confined to traditional courses, as I was then able to study art history, classical literature, sociology, philosophy, etc.  Imagine my delight years later when I recognized original works of art at the Louvre in Paris and at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.  

What personal qualities do you think were most strongly developed in you during your years as a Sun Devil?

The personal qualities that were most strongly developed in me during my years as a Sun Devil include being open-minded to leading and/or being led, developing the ability to delegate and/or assume responsibilities, co-operating to achieve a common goal and understanding a diversity of ideas.

Tell us about your involvement in this year’s (2014) Golden Reunion.

My involvement with the Golden Reunion actually began two years ago when my husband experienced his Golden Reunion. We are serving on this year’s committee and I have reconnected with sorority sisters and classmates, as well as connecting with new classmates. I hope to work on the committee in the future.

What advice would you give to today’s ASU students?

I would advise every Sun Devil to participate in Sun Devil sports and the graduation ceremonies.  I would also advise them to maintain a balance between social activities and academic studies, keeping their educational goals as their priority.
