Family Weekend is a time when Sun Devil families come together to reconnect and share in the Sun Devil experience. Join us as we prepare for the ASU vs. USC football game along with the Devils on Mill block party and the Family Weekend Signature Barbecue. Meet your student’s college faculty and staff at our various department open houses, attend a mini-lecture or go to classes with your student. Visit our Sun Devil Fitness Complexes. Take part in enduring ASU traditions, such as hiking “A” Mountain with Sparky. Most of all, take in everything ASU has to offer your student and be part of our vibrant community.
Family Weekend is about you and your student. The programs and events listed below are opportunities for your family to shape your own Family Weekend experience. Most programming is free of charge and open to all ASU families!
Meet, Greet and Eat
It’s time to fire up the grills and join other Sun Devil families at various academic college welcome events during Family Weekend. Parents and family members will enjoy barbecues, lawn games, lectures and open houses at all four ASU locations. Celebrate being part of the Sun Devil family!
When it comes to fun for the whole family, Family Weekend is the place to be. The Tempe, Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic and West campuses will offer family dinners, field day activities for all ages, movie viewings along with a variety of other events.
Celebrate ASU Traditions
Take a hike — during the Family Weekend “A” Mountain Spirit Hike and help paint the “A” gold before the big game. Led by Sparky, students and staff from the ASU Student Alumni Association, this is a great morning activity for the entire family. Learn the history behind the ASU icon as you take in the breathtaking views!
