ASU students took part in the university's annual Whitewash the "A" event on Saturday, Aug. 20. Every year students climb Hayden Butte, better known as "A" Mountain, to add a fresh coat of white paint to the "A" that rests on the hillside. It's an event that's happened every fall since the 1930s, making it one of the university's longest-standing traditions. The "A" will be repainted gold before the first football game.
In Mesa on Saturday, protestors wearing masks and holding signs marched in Mesa’s Asian business district to support the Asian American Pacific Islander community in response to the rising anti-Asian hate crimes.
