ASU Homecoming week is November 13-19, 2022.

Homecoming is a time of year where students, parents and alumni alike celebrate the spirit, pride and tradition at Arizona State University. ASU Homecoming week, November 13-19, 2022 is filled with many events that will get you in the school spirit and ready for the big football game. Festivities kick off with the Lantern Walk and conclude with the homecoming game against the Oregon State Beavers. Come experience the fun and excitement all week long at the ASU Tempe Campus!

Lantern Walk

Since its start in 1917, the Lantern Walk has remained one of the oldest and most treasured traditions at ASU. Students, alumni, faculty and community members are invited to carry lanterns up “A” Mountain to light up Tempe, following the footsteps of their Sun Devil ancestors.

At Lantern Walk, Sun Devils climb to the top of “A” Mountain, where the Homecoming Royalty are announced. The event takes place each year on the Friday night before the Homecoming game. This year, the Lantern Walk takes place on Friday, November 18, 2022.

*The pre-ceremony event begins at 6:30 p.m. with a DJ, and the hike up “A” Mountain begins before 7:00 p.m.
