Downtown campus celebrates Homecoming

October 12, 2010

Downtown Phoenix’s urban tapestry will be splashed with more than a touch of maroon and gold as ASU prepares for Homecoming. 

Throughout the week, ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus will host a slew of pride and spirit-building events for 2010 Devilish Homecoming.

Beads, pom-poms, banners, balloons, footballs, floats will fill out the downtown landscape as students prepare to show their school pride.  

“Bleeding maroon and gold for this year’s Devilish Homecoming will be easy for students, faculty and staff on the ASU Phoenix Downtown campus. These student-planned events – from donating your hair and blood for good causes to exploring the Arizona Science Center for an all night exclusive to ASU students – is sure to bring out much of ASU’s spirit and pride,” said Cassandra Aska, Student Engagement director. “There is something for everyone to show their love for ASU.”
