Freshmen kick off fall 2013 by whitewashing the 'A'

August 27, 2013

The class of 2017 continued Arizona State University's long-standing tradition of whitewashing the "A" on Tempe Butte, by making a morning trek up the mountain on Aug. 23. ASU students have been signifying a fresh new start to the school year by whitewashing the "A" since the 1930s.
