Here are a few events to get you through the semester to midterms

Funniest Teacher Contest

The second annual Funniest ASU Teacher contest will be held on Monday, Sept. 15, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union. This cutthroat competition allows professors from all four campuses to compete. The student body chooses the professors who compete. Each contestant will submit a 60-second video illustrating their use of humor in their classroom. Those videos will be posted online. Then, the students get to watch and vote for their favorite instructor. The finalists will go to a panel on Sept. 15 where a live audience will vote for ASU’s funniest teacher.
