The Downtown Phoenix campus continued this year's Open Door series on Friday, welcoming visitors — who mingled with the Phoenix First Friday art and music crowd — for a peek inside Arizona State University's learning spaces.

From exercise activities to squid dissections, the event gave hundreds of attendees a look at the colleges, schools, programs and student groups that help make ASU the most innovative university in the country.
