Whether it’s packing for school, confirming your housing option, or learning about ASU traditions or safety on campus, we will talk about it here!

You’re invited: Sun Devil Send Off

Start building your ASU community this summer by attending a Sun Devil Send Off near you. This annual event is a fun and casual opportunity to connect with fellow Sun Devils and their families starting at ASU in the fall 2023 semester.

You will connect in person with university representatives, current students and families, and ASU alumni to get your questions answered in advance of your move to campus.
