Traditions Fund Contribution

Arizona State University Alumni Association Traditions Fund

"The reconceptualization of Arizona State University as the model for the New American University represents an effort by the university’s administration, supported by the Arizona Board of Regents, to accelerate a process of institutional evolution that might otherwise have taken more than a quarter-century, compressing it into a single decade (2002–2012)." – ASU President Michael M. Crow

The ASU Alumni Association works every day to forge a stronger alumni and university community. Through the three foundational principles - honoring traditions, advancing the university and enhancing the alumni experience - that guide our work, we endeavor to preserve the university’s rich history and enhance the university’s future.

Honoring Traditions

Besides a degree from ASU, all Sun Devils walk away with memories from their time at ASU. From Homecoming, Lantern Walk, Oozeball, to Whitewash the “A,” the Student Alumni Association works hard to maintain traditions that are unique to ASU. Your contribution provides the important resources necessary to support our “tradition keepers” and keep the traditions alive.

Advancing the University

From making the case for higher education through our Sun Devil Advocates Network to ASU Magazine, showcasing the university current research initiatives, we work hard to advance the mission of Arizona State. Through key scholarship initiatives, we strengthen the university efforts to attract talented students to ASU. The Medallion Scholarship, a signature scholarship initiative of the Association, is more than a financial award. It is a comprehensive scholarship program that incorporates components of leadership, scholarship and service. Other key programs include a robust young alumni network for social and career building initiatives and the special Sun Devil Generations program that creates a lifelong connection to ASU for our youngest constituents, future Sun Devils.

Enhancing the Alumni Experience

We believe our constituents are “Sun Devils for Life.” No matter where life takes them, we ensure through our chapter network, we have a Sun Devil family waiting to embrace them. Through effective programming, Sun Devils can stay connected to ASU through online resources, programs, career support, travel programs, social gatherings and more. In addition, the ASU Alumni Association encourages a family tradition of attending Arizona State University through its Legacy Scholarship initiative. This scholarship award is based on evidence of academic success, a strong commitment to community service and/or university involvement, and achievement of personal and educational goals. A strong alumni community means a stronger ASU.
