Meet Our Team: Tom Collins

Get to know the Sun Devil Club staff!

Q & A with Assistant AD for Annual Fund/Stewardship, Tom "TC" Collins,

Why did you choose to work at ASU? And specifically SDA? I worked at ASU as an undergrad in the ticket office which lead me to the assistant ticket manager position. I left ASU for Washington State and University of Miami. I was fortunate to come back to ASU in 1985 for twenty years, then going to Ball State University as the Athletic Director for seven years. I returned to ASU in 2013 to assume my current position with the Sun Devil Club. My family considers Tempe to be home.

What’s your favorite holiday and why? Thanksgiving because it brings together family and friends. 

What’s your favorite thing to do when not working? When I am not working I like to spend time with family! My wife Kathy, my kids and grandkids.  

What’s your favorite movie? The Godfather

What is your favorite vacation? Any place with my family, the mountains or the beach. 

Favorite Sun Devil Moment: I have so many great Sun Devils moments with all the sports, but three that stand out are, the first Rose Bowl win over Michigan, when ASU beat Nebraska 19- 0, and when both the men and women's golf teams won the NCAA Championship in 1990! Go Devils!
