Arizona State University's Open Door continued at the West campus in Glendale on Saturday, where visitors learned about forensics, toured the biomedical research lab, played games, hung out with Sparky and more.
From the crime-scene lab to the science of neurons, 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.
If you missed the fun, don't worry: There is one more free Open Door event in February: 1–6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Tempe campus.
Check ASU Now after each event for photo galleries and video, and follow along as our crew shows all the fun on Snapchat (search for username: ASUNow).
