ASU Welcome Week helps students make the most of their Sun Devil experience
This week, as incoming students began their college journeys at Arizona State University and returning students came back for the fall semester, there was no shortage of events to welcome them to campus.
ASU's Welcome Week events are designed to help students succeed, connect with new people and make the most of their Sun Devil experience.
Take a look at some of the events from each campus.
