Follow The State Press back in time as we compare and contrast video footage from Arizona State University: Campus in the Sun — a 1966 promotional video by Canyon Films, Inc. with current State Press video desk packages. We show you Tempe campus landmarks, paired with attendance, tuition and expansion numbers with a word from ASU President G. Homer Durham.
