Retired faculty group to meet
One of the benefits of retiring from the faculty at ASU is membership in the ASU Retired Faculty Association, a loosely knit group of comrades who enjoy meeting and dining together at least once a year. Customarily, the retired faculty's annual reception takes place on the last Thursday in September. This year, the group will enjoy an evening meal at the Pavilion on Tuesday, Oct. 2, courtesy of the Office of University Advancement. The change is due to the rescheduling of the ASU-Memphis football game.
