Super First Tuesday: 53 chapters, 20+ countries

Prospective students joined Thunderbird alumni at 53 chapter events in more than 20 countries during Super First Tuesday in March 2014. The annual tradition, which started in 2006, gives undergraduate students and working professionals a chance to learn more about the Thunderbird mystique from the people who keep it alive. “That taste of the amazing Thunderbird network is a powerful selling point,” said Rebecca Henriksen, Thunderbird's Vice President of Enrollment and Student Services Management.
