Night of the Open Door at the Thunderbird campus
February 21, 2016

For five evenings over the course of February, the public is invited onto Arizona State University's campuses for Night of the Open Door, to see what each has to offer, in the form of interactive games, informative displays and plenty of fun. This weekend saw two of those free events: Friday at the Polytechnic campus in Mesa and Saturday at the Thunderbird campus in Glendale, a first for that campus.

If you missed the fun, there's one more Night of the Open Door left, this Saturday on the Tempe campus. There are dozens of activities in store; find details on those, plus a map and parking information, at

Here's a glimpse of the fun at both campuses this past weekend.
