Students Celebrate

What's that picture?

The ASU Digital Repository features a picture of students celebrating the 1958 election results that renamed Arizona State College to Arizona State University. The image is part of the Arizona State University Name Change Photographs held in the University Archives Audio Visual Materials collection.
