Recognizing Our Humanity Game

How well do you know yourself, friends, and family? This is a fun game to be played by 2 or more people. All too often, the way we view ourselves is not necessarily the way others see us. Although we may think we know ourselves or someone else very well, we may still be surprised about our own answers and theirs.

ASU Slanguage

Help us build a lexicon (dictionary) of slang words and phrases used by people in and around the ASU community! Most simply, slang is informal language. Submit an entry by filling out our easy Google Form, and assist in the process of building a dictionary and analyzing the submissions as they come in. We'll even help you figure out the part of speech. We will keep a frequency count of specific entries and of parts of speech submitted, and examine differing definitions and examples.
