Tempe campus celebrates Sun Devil Homecoming

October 18, 2011

What began as a small celebration in 1926 has since become one of Arizona State University’s most coveted traditions, and this year is no different. “Sun Devil Homecoming 2011: Past. Present. Future” will pay tribute to where the university has been, showcase where we are today and present a glimpse of what is to come in the future.

ASU’s Tempe campus will play host to many exciting events happening Oct. 21-29. The week will lead up to the Homecoming parade and block party on University Drive on Oct. 29, and culminate with the ASU vs. Colorado football game at 3:30 p.m. in Sun Devil Stadium. Tickets for the game can be purchased in person or by calling the Sun Devil Ticket Office at 480-727-0000. Download Full Image
