Sparky's touchdown tailgate

Sparky’s Touchdown Tailgates

Sparky’s Touchdown Tailgates is an unrivaled ASU Alumni celebration before home football games (it's too big and bold to be limited to a single location!). The gameday tailgates feature Sparky; the ASU Spirit Squad; food, food and more food; live music; and special giveaways. SAA student-members help plan and organize the tailgates, providing Sun Devil fans a one-of-a-kind experience ... in multiple locations!

Homecoming

Homecoming is an ASU tradition that brings together students, families, alumni and the Valley community to celebrate Sun Devil spirit. The festivities begin with Lantern Walk, a lantern-carrying, time-honored hike to the top of ‘A’ Mountain, ceremonially lighting up Tempe. SAA student-members also star in the ASU Homecoming parade, navigating their topical SAA float along University Drive, through the heart of the Tempe campus, to the delight of thousands of flag-waving, face-painted, enthusiastic Sun Devil Nation fans! 

Students on the bus to watch Pac 12 game

Turnaround trip

This full-day experience will be a cross-stateline trip you will never forget (until the next time you take it with us)! Hop on the ASU bus and head west to California to watch our football-playing Sun Devils take on Bears, Bruins, Trojans or even a Cardinal, depending on the schedule, in a big-time Pac-12 rivalry game. You'll get the full gameday experience, from attending the exclusive pregame tailgate festivities to cheering on the Sun Devils in enemy territory. Then, with victory in hand, we do the turnaround and head home to ASU! 'Forks up! Event details coming soon!  

Beat UoA week

Beat UofA Week

Beat UofA Week starts with guarding and protecting our venerable ‘A’ on ‘A’ Mountain. It's your chance to play a pivotal part in helping keep our ‘A’ gold, keeping an eye out for those crazy Wildcat fans from down south who think they can mess with our 'A'! You’ll also participate in a T-shirt exchange: Trade in a red shirt for a brand-new gold ASU T to wear at the ASU vs. UA football game! Event details coming soon!

Outstanding Graduate Award 

ASU Alumni presents its Outstanding Graduate Award to a high-performing graduate in each college. Individual schools and colleges are responsible for selecting their unit's honoree. The award is presented during honors convocations for each school/college.

Please note that only an undergraduate student is eligible for this award and only one student may be selected from each college.  The selected student must graduate in the 2018-2019 academic year and complete his or her degree by May 2019.

Each college, through the dean or the selection committee, may determine more specific criteria for judging the outstanding graduate, as long as they do not conflict with the criteria listed above.  Please forward a copy of any additional criteria instituted by your college when you submit your Outstanding Graduate to us.
