Sun Devils have shown their resiliency during this unprecedented semester, and so have ASU families. Now hundreds of families will be gathering virtually Nov. 6–7 at Arizona State University's Family Weekend to stay connected and safe while getting a glimpse of campus life and celebrating Sun Devil spirit from all corners of the globe.

Kathy Czeranko of Chandler, Arizona, is looking forward to her very first ASU Family Weekend to share some time with her Sun Devil, chemical engineering major Jimmy Czeranko, whom she describes as a creative and enterprising engineer.

She is particularly interested to hear from her son’s dean at the Fulton Schools of Engineering and said it’s important for families to engage in this time, even though it has been challenging.

“Thinking outside the box is always important,” she said. “We only grow through hard times, in my opinion.”

Czeranko said she loves being an ASU family because of the caring community she’s found and “the support we're given through the ASU Family organization.”

Registration is still open for the weekend of fun, which will feature more than 45 live events and more than 22 on-demand activities, including celebrations from academic colleges, virtual family activities, cultural exhibits, a concert, the traditional Sun Devil football game and more.

Check out some of the event highlights below, and visit the ASU Family Weekend site to register and find the full schedule of events, which run from Monday, Nov. 2, to Sunday, Nov. 8.

Academic college visits

Families will be able to participate in meet and greets, special class visits and town halls that showcase their Sun Devils’ rich academic college experiences. 

Virtual fitness

Take part in a family 5K or the Gold Rush Games virtually for interactive fitness challenges and some friendly competition and fun. 

Sun Devil football vs. USC

Cheer on the Sun Devils as you watch them take the field in their season opener, which will be nationally televised on Fox Saturday, Nov. 7, at 10 a.m. MST. 

Salute to Service

The ASU community is honoring active duty U.S. military service members, veterans and their families. All are invited to join a live concert from the Gin Blossoms (a Tempe hometown band!) on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. MST. 

Interactive art

Future Sun Devils are invited to pick up an ASU Art Museum’s Playfest packet and join a guided virtual art project.
