Who keeps leaving the light on?
Maybe it’s you! Are you a Torchbearer? Torchbearers are ASU faculty and staff, current or retired, who “leave the light on” for current and future generations of students by supporting ASU academic programs today. If you haven’t joined this enlightened group, you may do so by returning the pledge card in your Torchbearer brochure, or by using the on-line pledge card. For more details and a FAQ sheet about Torchbearers click here. All Torchbearers will be invited to a breakfast Thursday, Nov. 3, in the Student Union. Great door prizes will include Windchimes from Russco, and an RCA DVD player from the ASU Bookstore.
