Spreading ASU spirit on College Signing Day

Bus full of enthusiastic ASU students and Sparky himself travels the Valley to surprise future Sun Devils

Students College Signing Day
April 26, 2016

How would you like to be welcomed to your new college?

Would a bus full of spirited ASU students, the ASU spirit squad and Sparky himself do the trick?

On Tuesday, representatives from Arizona State University traveled around the Valley to celebrate with high school seniors who had chosen to come to ASU. The bus made stops at ASU Preparatory Academy, Bioscience High School, St. Mary's High School and Central High School on National College Signing Day.

ASU Now was along for the ride as these excited high school seniors get ready to transition into college freshman.

(Scroll below the slideshow for more ways that future Sun Devils can show their spirit this week, including cool, free stuff like downloadable photobooth props and room decorations, smartphone backgrounds, Facebook cover photos and more — because who doesn't like Sun Devil swag?)
