ASU Homecoming 2013:
All That Glitters is Gold

Arizona State University’s 2013 Homecoming theme is "All that Glitters is Gold," and the Global Institute of Sustainability and School of Sustainability want to celebrate everything gold and green!

Keep your eyes out for some "sustainable bees" at the Homecoming Parade starting at 11:00 a.m. Then join the Institute and School at the Homecoming Block Party that begins at 12:00 p.m.

At the Block Party, visit the School of Sustainability tent to receive sustainable swag, make your mark on the giant thumbprint tree, get your very own “bee sustainable” temporary tattoo, and test your knowledge on the giant crossword puzzle. Also learn how you can travel to Botswana with Senior Sustainability Scientist and ecologist Dan Childers to study African wildlife, a spring 2014 trip organized by the Arizona State University Alumni Association.

Come by the Institute’s tent to taste and purchase some locally grown dates, create your own newspaper seed planter with the ASU Arboretum team, learn how to compost, relax in the Zen garden, take a sustainability themed photo with your friends, play fun ecology games, and enjoy a bee-themed craft station.

Then stick around for some Sun Devil Football at 3:00 p.m.!
