Homecoming 2011: ASU participates in Lantern Walk, lighting of the 'A'

October 30, 2011
ASU conducted another version of the university's oldest tradition during homecoming. The Lantern Walk began in 1917 as a symbolic passing of the torch from the senior class to the junior class. Since 1990, the Lantern Walk has become a tradition on the Friday night of Homecoming weekend. ASU students, alumni, faculty and staff work the way up Tempe Butte for the lighting of the “A”.
