ASU clubs gather communities around sports, culture, academics, advocacy and more.
Sun Devils celebrate Black excellence with annual ball
This spring, ASU’s Black African Coalition hosted its second annual Black Excellence Ball.
The ball is held for Sun Devils every February to celebrate Black History Month. Black History Month wrapped up in February; it celebrates and recognizes the role and achievements of Black Americans in U.S. history.
This year's theme for the ball was Rejoicing. The idea behind the theme was created by BAC members while reflecting on events that had impacted the community over the past year.
“It's a time to rejoice in our skin tone and our race,” said Hayli Kubly, a first-year Sun Devil studying sports business and member of the Black Excellence Ball Committee
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.
The U.N. Association at ASU maintained a global view despite COVID
The United Nations Association at ASU, also known as UNA-ASU, has come into its own this past year due to its passionate officers and members. Their primary focus of supporting and promoting the work of The United Nations has continued, despite the obstacles this past year threw at everyone.
This past year UNA-ASU was awarded the 2020 Campus Chapter of Excellence Award. This award is granted to a chapter at ASU that goes above and beyond to instill a positive change in the Sun Devil community.
The Novel Coronavirus caused ASU to shut their doors in March, 2020. UNA-ASU moved all operations online, including their successful networking events.
Once Upon a Time ASU instills a love for reading in children
Instilling a love for reading and creativity in children is crucial for kids’ development and well-being, and a new student led organization at ASU, Once Upon a Time, holds this as their central mission.
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.
