The ASU Alumni Association celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of ASU alumni who own or lead businesses — everything from law firms to wineries — as part of the prestigious Sun Devil 100 program. Last year’s honorees included owners of restaurants, marketing agencies, printing companies, skin-care product lines, recruitment firms and moving and logistics companies.
ASU alumni have until Dec. 1 to apply for the Sun Devil 100 Class of 2018. Applications can be submitted online at https://alumni.asu.edu/node/4838
