Tuesday night we will host an elegant reception under the stars at the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden. Lunch on Wednesday will be on your own, so you can explore downtown Tempe and ASU's Memorial Union.
The average March high temperature is 84 degrees, but the evenings and early mornings can be quite cool. Business casual dress is encouraged for all events. Because the temperature in the classroom can vary, we suggest you dress in layers. The Tuesday evening dinner will be outside and will involve a short walk across a gravel pathway to reach the venue. You may wish to walk around the grounds as well, so please wear comfortable clothes and footwear to this event.
