If you live in the East Valley of the Phoenix area - or visit the East Valley or the Superstition Wilderness Area frequently - digital history students in an ASU Project Cities course project want to hear your answers. The students are conducting a survey designed to identify the most important cultural landmarks of the East Valley – specifically, the Apache Junction area. The survey will inform the students’ suggestions for the City of Apache Junction to help improve geographical and cultural awareness and pride in the city. This course project is one part of the Project Cities program’s year-long partnership with the City of Apache Junction. The partnership empowers ASU students to address the city’s environmental and social challenges through various course projects across multiple disciplines. To contribute to the students’ work, answer the short, simple survey found at this link. The survey will be open for the next week. See the students’ findings at the Project Cities Spring Showcase on April 25th from 12:30 to 3:30pm on the ASU Tempe campus. The event is free and open to the public.
