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”.

That sounds like an awesome rewards program. I am definitely going to have to check this out for myself.
It really is an awesome way to get excited for family activities!
Great experience to go back to where you had so many great memories and to bring your kids to share in the moment. the App looks like it is so good for Alums.
I love the Sun Devil Rewards app and our family had the best time on campus!
Must have been really memorable to be back on campus and with your kids! Love how your college has this rewards program but also connects alum. Wouldnt it be amazing if your girls went here too?
I had such a great time sharing this experience with my daughters!
I love when companies offer rewards programs to their customers. It really shows they value their customers and want them to come back again.
I have so much love for Arizona State and am very excited for my girls to want to attend their events too!
That is the first time I have heard of a Sun Devils Rewards program but from your post I can see it is totally worth it and how fun it can be! Lucky you and your family!
I’m new to the app too and love being able to find local events for my family to enjoy!
What a great app for the alums and students. I wonder if more universities have programs like that?! I’ll have to check into the college my daughter will be attending next fall.
Agreed – it’s an awesome app for ASU alums and students! I really love how easy it is to spontaneously find an event for my family to attend.
That’s a great reward app! I love the idea of a university having such a program!
It definitely is a great way to keep you connected to the university.
Looks like everyone had a nice time!
We all had so much fun!
This is the first time that i have heard of this, and I really want to go check it out. It seems really great,
Check it out and start earning Pitchforks!
This looks like such a fun program and fun app. I love doing things with my family.
Family fun is the best kind of fun!
I sometimes miss my old college campus, too. I would love to head back up to Boone, NC and visit the campus at Appalachian State once again. I can see where this was a nostalgic experience for you.
It definitely brought back memories to be on campus again. So much has changed but it was fun sharing this experience with my daughters.
This is such a cool idea! I know for a fact my university doesn’t have anything like this, but what a great way to keep you and your family apart of the community! PS your daughter is very brave for holding all those snakes and bugs!
Thank you. My girls are definitely brave and love all the creepy crawlies!
I’ve never heard of this before but it looks like you had such a wonderful time, you have a beautiful family xx
Thank you! We had such a wonderful time.
What an awesome experience! So great to share in this with your kids! It looks like you had a great time.
We definitely did enjoy the experience. I’m excited to attend more ASU events with my family.
How fun that you got to show your kids what your college experience was like! It’s always great to get kids comfortable in a college environment from an early age.
Eight is the most fun age to explore the campus for us. My daughter had such silly questions that I never knew she was wondering. “What time do you have to go to bed?” was a favorite!
This seems like a really fun and useful help! Wish they had something like this where I live 🙁
The app is wonderful to find family friendly events. Bonus – you get free stuff just by having fun!
I love going back to my alma mater with my girls. It brings back such great memories. It looks like they put on an awesome event for the whole family.
This annual event is huge and so awesome for families to experience life on campus. We had a blast!
wow this is awesome! every campus should have a version of this! looks like you all had a great time : )
I agree – it’s so great to show children what it means to go to college. My daughter definitely has more exciting questions now that she’s seen it in action.
Wow this is a great scheme! All college campus should have this. Looks like you guys had an amazing time, and you’re daughter got to see where you went to college! Awesome!
I loved sharing this with my daughters! We’ll definitely be back next year.
Oh wow I’ve never heard about this. I will definitely have to check it out for myself. I can’t wait to learn more about it.
We were pretty new to the app too. It’s a great way to earn free merchandise just for having fun with your friends and family!
I can’t believe your daughter picked a cockroach for a pet! I am sure a snake would be next. Both girls seem to enjoy holding it.
She had pet Madagascar cockroaches at only five years old. Currently we have a dog, two cats and a hedgehog. Next up – a bearded dragon lizard. Although she’s been able to learn through these experiences, I have absolutely drawn a line with snakes. NO SNAKES in our house! But it’s so awesome they can still learn about them at events like this on campus.
Wow! This sounds like an awesome rewards program! I can’t wait to take my son back to my alma mater! We are going to have so much fun!
I’m not sure who enjoyed it more – my daughters or me. It was awesome watching them enjoy a campus I love so much.
This sounds really awesome and useful! Cant beat that. I wonder what my kids would pick, a cockroach for a pet is hilarious!
She has always been very interested in animals. In preschool she spent her recess time digging in the garden looking for bugs and I was honestly concerned. She has grown into such a smart little girl with a true love for nature and helping animals. This event was a great way to learn about real work done by people with those same passions.
This app sound so awesome and very useful! It looks like you had so much with your family too!! 🙂
The Sun Devil Rewards app is great for finding local events and my family had such an awesome time together!
This looks like so much fun! And that app sounds awesome
We had a great time and will definitely be finding more fun events like this one on the Sun Devil Rewards app!
This sounds like a really fun way to spend time as a family, your girls look like they had a blast! And what a great rewards scheme too!
We definitely had a great time together! And I love that we literally are being rewarded just for having fun and learning.
Your daughters are very brave! I will run miles away when I see a snake. It would be awesome if all the university has this rewards program.
My daughters are brave girls! My oldest would love to have a pet snake but I absolutely will not allow that to happen. It is neat that there are great learning opportunities at ASU for her!
Awe it’s so great that you guys are able to share something so personal and fun with your whole family! Looks like you captured some GREAT images as well!
Our family had an amazing time spending the day on my campus! I am so appreciative of the photographer with us for the day so we could have these great images!
What a cool app! It looks like you had such a fun day! My little girl would love the animal encounter!
Animal learning opportunities are my girls’ favorite! I love that you also have a brave daughter excited about animals.
I like ve rewards programs and make sure to sign up when I can. This one sounds great with such fun rewards
Thanks, Sun Devil Rewards is a really great program!
Looks like your family is had a great time! Thanks for introducing this app.
How fun that your school has such a good alumni program! That really makes all the difference with staying involved. Looks like y’all had such a great time visiting with the girls!
