Student Leaders network at bowl game
The ASU Student Leaders traveled to the New Orleans Bowl in December to cheer on the Indian football team. On this university-sponsored trip, the students visited New Orleans, networked with ASU alumni, toured the University of Louisiana-Lafayette campus, and were seen on ESPN cheering on the ASU Indians. The Marching Indians also made the trip to the bowl game, as this was the first bowl game for many band members. Go here to see photos. Many of these activities and photos are a great recruiting tool to show prospective students visiting ASU.
