Spending time on my college campus with my daughters was a wonderful experience. My eight year old daughter is just beginning to ask questions about life on campus so I couldn’t be more excited to share the university where I have so many fond memories. I graduated from Arizona State University over 10 years ago and until this weekend, my daughters hadn’t seen the beautiful campus in Tempe I called home. My Sun Devil pride is glowing and I loved every moment of ASU’s Night of the Open Door with my family. We logged in on the Sun Devil Rewards App to earn Pitchforks for attending so we can redeem points to earn more ASU gear. Our family received complimentary merchandise but all the university apparel we wore to the event can be earned with three easy steps: log in, go have fun, redeem rewards. Rewards can be redeemed with as little as 500 Pitchforks so it’s extra awesome I’m sharing a code to score 400 just by entering the secret word on the app. All lifestyle photos in this post were taken and edited by the incredibly talented Arizona State University photographer, Jarod Opperman.
How does Sun Devil Rewards work? The app links students, alumni and fans to each other and the ASU experience. You might have a soft place in your heart for Arizona State University, like me!, or you might just be looking for Arizona family fun – it’s a great way to learn about events and earn rewards for something you’re likely already doing. Pitchforks are awarded for easy activities and attending ASU events. You can immediately redeem your pitchforks for chances to win exclusive experiences or for your favorite Arizona State merchandise, like the shirts and hat we wore to the Night of the Open Door.
Just for opening the Sun Devil Rewards app you start earning. Checking in at an ASU event is worth 25 Pitchforks. You can tweet, post photos and more for up to 25 Pitchforks while attending the event. When your friends sign up you get even more Pitchforks to redeem!
Activities and events include a wide range of interests. You’ll find sporting events, learning opportunities and many social outings. I had fun browsing the rewards because not only is there awesome ASU merchandise, you can also redeem your Pitchforks for memorabilia and chances to win exclusive fan encounters.
With a deep love for Arizona State University, I couldn’t wait to be back on campus with my family. The Night of the Open Door was an excellent learning opportunity and event to share everything the university has to offer. My oldest daughter, the SeaWorld guest kid blogger, is very interested in animals and science so our first stop was the Life Sciences exhibits. Having had her own pet Madagascar cockroaches previously, she was excited to share what she already knew and learn so much more.
Baby sister wants to do everything her big sister does and was fascinated by the birds.
We moved on to additional animal encounters and reinforced the idea that girls can certainly be anything they want to be. Both my fearless girls held snakes while others looked on surprised.
Experiences like Night of the Open Door happen often. Learn about the events by logging into Sun Devil Rewards. Remember that you earn 50 Pitchforks when registering on the app and another 50 for linking your social accounts.
Now through 3/2 you can earn 400 points by using my secret word: LOVESPARKY!
With so many ways to earn and a long list of rewards beginning at only 500 Pitchforks for redemption, you can start redeeming immediately.
I lived on campus my first year of college and couldn’t wait to show my oldest daughter exactly what that meant. We toured the Manzanita Residence Hall and she asked many questions about student life in the dorms. Baby sister asked for crayons and decided she didn’t want to leave the dorm room. We have 16 years before she gets comfortable in a dorm room!
We spent the day exploring the campus, talking to faculty and students and simply enjoying our family time together. We even had dinner at the Memorial Union because our oldest daughter was so curious about the “school cafeteria”.
How will you redeem your Sun Devil Rewards Pitchforks?
