Homecoming week activities well underway
Homecoming week is more than football; it's a time to revisit the alma mater and to reconnect with fellow travelers from the journey that is the college experience. The events sponsored by individual colleges may be of particular interest to faculty, while alumni may well wish to read about their distinguished fellows in various colleges or attend events planned with alumni in mind. Current students may be interested in events that are part of the tradition of Homecoming week at ASU.
