Homecoming events offer fun for ASU alumni, fans
Sun Devils everywhere can join the spirit and celebration of this year’s Homecoming – and take a chance to discover or remember everything that ASU has to offer the state, the country and the world.
The ASU 2007 Homecoming celebration during the week of Oct. 21-27 will be packed with activities for students, alumni and community members alike. This big celebration promises fun for the whole family, with events such as the Homecoming parade, the Block Party, a picnic and live entertainment.
Homecoming visitors also can explore the CLAS Academic Expo, which will include reptiles, glass blowing, cotton spinning, a body-fat analysis, meteorite displays, science demonstrations, interactive games, and arts and crafts.
This year’s Homecoming will give a special welcome to the alumni from the classes of 1957, 1967, 1977, 1987, and 1997. The “lucky sevens” will be able to participate in campus tours and other activities.
“I’m happy that I will get the opportunity to be back at ASU, because this university was a big part of my life – and it’s a great place to see old friends, make new friends and create connections,” says Andy Hanshaw, an ASU alum from the class of 1987.
This year Homecoming parade will take place beginning at 3 p.m., Oct. 27. The parade will feature more than 100 floats made by campus organizations and community groups. The creations will show the world what ASU has to offer.
The parade will be followed by ASU’s Block Party, an event that every year attracts thousands of visitors to the university and is quickly becoming recognized as the biggest party of the year for the Sun Devil community.
During the Block Party celebration, more than 30 schools and departments will be showcased.
The Homecoming game between ASU and the California Golden Bears will start at 7 p.m., Oct. 27, at Sun Devil Stadium.
The theme for this year celebration is, “Go Gold: It is Sun Devil Time.”
