Year One: Life at ASU — Relatives visit Hannah

People eating at a restaurant

One of the joys of attending college in Arizona is knowing there's a good chance relatives from northern states are going to visit during the winter. Arizona State Univeristy freshman Hannah Kiesling got her first taste of this when her aunt, uncle and cousin from Chicago recently visited the area. There's comfort in seeing family when your home is far away, but visiting relatives often give university students another pleasure: a meal out in a nice restaurant.

Kiesling got a taste of each as she showed her realtives around the university. It's her latest chapter in "Year One: Life at ASU," a periodic photo story illustrating the journey of five freshmen navigating their first year at ASU.
