New plots honor Divine 9 sororities and fraternities at ASU
A powerful symbol of the service and legacy of ASU’s Black Greek letter organizations was installed in February 2021 at the Greek Leadership Community Center: nine plots representing Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, Omega Psi Phi fraternity, Delta Sigma Theta sorority, Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, Zeta Phi Beta sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho sorority and Iota Phi Theta fraternity.
The plots themselves are pillars about four feet tall made of red granite that was saved from a Hayden Library renovation. The pinths feature the crests and mottos of each organization arranged in a semicircle in order of founding year.
In CHAARG: Sun Devils bring women’s health and fitness club to ASU
ASU has more than 1,000 student clubs and organizations to choose from. But if you can’t find one that fits your interests — you can start a new one!
Carly Todd, 19, a sophomore majoring in digital and integrated marketing communications, decided to bring an organization to campus that added something new to campus life and also led her to finding great friends.
CHAARG is a national organization that stands for “changing health attitudes and actions to recreate girls.” With chapters at more than 100 colleges across the country, the organization is empowering women to get out and get fit while supporting one another.
Arizona State University values the voices of all students and aims to provide opportunities for all students to be heard and to enact change within the Sun Devil community.
The new Advisory Board for Student Organizations is being organized to accomplish just that and provide ASU’s more than 1,000 clubs with insight on their goals, services and initiatives. In addition, the board creates an additional bridge for facilitating communication between ASU student leaders and faculty and staff.
The ABSO is composed of six students who advise clubs through the lens of health and wellness; culture, identity, and religion; civic engagement and service; academic and professional organizations; sports and recreation clubs; and special interest groups.
Once Upon a Time ASU instills a love for reading in children

Once Upon a Time aims to establish a nurturing environment for children to learn about the importance and excitement of reading. The group works alongside children's institutions to provide interactive reading videos with hands-on activities.
