The University of Connecticut Huskies won their second NCAA championship in a row Monday evening in Glendale, Arizona — and plenty of Sun Devils were on hand to make sure the event was a hit for fans and teams alike.

As the host institution for the 2024 NCAA Men's Final Four, Arizona State University was in charge of planning and various logistics. Students from a range of majors had multiple opportunities to work the event, from Cronkite School journalists covering the event to Watts College tourism students helping staff the Fan Fest in downtown Phoenix.

Here's a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes action of Sun Devils hard at work and having fun.
