A little rain can't hold back Arizona State University's brightest.

The 32nd annual ASU Day at the Capitol, hosted by the ASU Office of Government and Community Engagement in collaboration with the ASU Alumni Association, invited elected officials to the Senate Lawn in downtown Phoenix on a rainy Feb. 14 afternoon for lunch with a side of Sun Devil pride.

Lawmakers checked out exhibits featuring ASU's signature programs and initiatives.

Students and faculty were on hand to answer questions and highlight ASU’s impact on the local community and economy. 

ASU President Michael M. Crow attended the event, speaking with students and mingling with lawmakers, including Arizona State alumni César Chávez, Tony Navarette, Isela Blanc, Michelle Udall and Douglas Coleman.
