“T-birds have a chance to represent Thunderbird to prospective students, the entire ASU community and our Glendale community. This is a chance for us to give them some true Thunderbird experiences throughout the day and culminating with Regional Night,” adds Senften. T-birds and staff will engage with guests to highlight the global diversity of the campus and uniqueness of the school.
