ASU East: Driving range, pro shop open

Nargiza Paltasheva
A new driving range at ASU East is already open to students and guests. The range is used by students in programs such as Professional Golf Management and Golf and Facilities Management.
Baseball fields and a department store at ASU East were transformed into a new golf driving range and pro shop within four months.

"Getting all the pieces together of the project was quite difficult," said Rita Locke, Director of Development of ASU East.

Today the range includes 90 hitting stations. Half are reserved for Professional Golf Management students and the rest is open to public, to generate revenue to pay for some of the operating costs.

ASU uses grant to combat illiteracy

ASU can help improve the reading skills of children after receiving a $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

The three-year grant is a part of the No Child Left Behind Act, a multifaceted law aimed at improving the education of disadvantaged students at the pre-collegiate level.

ASU searches for Washington's likeness

Lasers, digital imaging and cows' teeth are likely the furthest terms from one's mind when the name George Washington is heard.

Yet ASU professor Anshuman Razdan sees a perfect correlation between those terms and the first president of the United States.

In conjunction with University of Pittsburgh anthropology professor Jeffrey Schwartz, Razdan, director of ASU's Partnership for Research in Spatial Modeling, or PRISM, is leading a team of professors, students and a host of others in discovering what Washington truly looked like.

Preparation for Northwestern will be similar to UTEP

Adam Flath
Originally the ASU football team thought preparation for its season opener against Texas-El Paso and its second game, against Northwestern, would be completely different. Turns out it won't.

The Sun Devils fully expected UTEP, with former Pac-10 coach Mike Price, to get its yards via the air and for Northwestern to stack and run. The Miners didn't disappoint, as they attempted 44 passes on Thursday. But if the Wildcats play anything like they did in their season opener, ASU's main concern will not be defending the run.

Cats still have a long road ahead of them despite Stoops' debut win

TUCSON -- "Bear Down Arizona. Bear Down Red and Blue. Bear Down Arizona ..."

The UA fight song resonated from the Wildcats' locker room Saturday night, signifying the first completed step in a long rebuilding process for new coach Mike Stoops.

But there wasn't much reason to celebrate.
