Rising Sun Devil

College graduates are oftentimes filled with an overabundance of ambition as they prepare to leave school behind and take the world by storm. Anthony Correnti is no exception. Like many soon-to-be Arizona State University grads, the fifth-year Interdisciplinary Studies senior hopes to accomplish a lofty goal with his newfound swagger: restoring ASU as the nation's top party school.

“I was gonna try Wall Street, because I've got interviews and connections, but instead I'm gonna stay here and try to get ASU back to number one,” he says.

Correnti aims to restore the former king to its notorious throne via major ragers that his new nightlife promotions company, TwonsWorld, will throw, starting with the ASU Snow Party on Thursday, February 21. The 18-and-over icy affair promises loads of the flaky substance flying through the air at Rocky Point Cantina, 1001 East Eighth Street in Tempe, which will transform into a “rave winter wonderland.” Sexy snow bunnies, laser lights, and dance music from Trapzillas and DJ Phyr Fox will be in the chilly mix.
