    Sun Devil Days

    Sun Devil Day is a half-day event, where you’ll get a feel for the ASU experience and learn about your academic opportunities. Tour campus, learn about degree programs, and discover why it’s great to be a Sun Devil! These half-day events allow students to meet with representatives from academic colleges, Barrett, The Honors College, and current ASU students, as well as a campus tour to learn more about the ASU experience.

    Agendas and times vary by campus. Details regarding the event students choose will be included in their confirmation emails.

    Experience ASU

    Experience ASU tour groups will receive an in-person information session, followed by a walking tour of campus. Academic session and housing tour options vary by day and campus. These are offered weekly at all of our campuses, with days varying depending on campus location.

    Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen, are you looking for something to do this summer?  You can experience life as a Sun Devil this summer by getting involved in ASU Summer Programs.  You can choose from (literally) hundreds of fun and interactive programs at Arizona State University about a variety of topics including engineering, leadership, math and the arts. There’s no better way to cure that summertime boredom than learning from world-renowned professors and exploring your interests to start paving the way to a successful future.

    If you are interested in this opportunity, please check out this website where you can read about the different camp offerings.
