Rodger Wilson, of Phoenix, works on completing construction on the ASU Foundation Building parking structure Tuesday.
Visitors to campus will soon find additional spaces in ASU parking structures, but construction will continue to close surface lots and cause road restrictions around campus.

ASU Parking and Transit Services plans to open a paid-parking section for visitors in Structure 4, located on Rural Road north of Lemon Street. The new spaces will be on the first level and replace some parking lost because of other construction.

ASU continues fight over CLS lawsuit

ASU's legal team filed a motion to dismiss a November lawsuit alleging the University is hampering the First Amendment rights of a campus club.

ASU Deputy General Counsel Nancy Tribbensee said ASU filed a formal answer to the Christian Legal Society's lawsuit on Dec. 30, in addition to a partial motion to dismiss, and remains resolved in its decision to fight the suit.

Campus continues torrid expansion pace

The fences that have surrounded the new Foundation Building during its construction will soon have a new home around yet another new ASU building.

Construction projects on campus range from nearly finished to newly begun.

State budget shorts ASU's request

While the budget proposed by Gov. Janet Napolitano made an effort to address key issues in ASU funding, University officials said the funding fell flat.

Deputy Vice President of Public Affairs Steve Miller said the proposal ignored several University requests, including student growth and the department of bioinformatics.

Athletic budget crunch nearing end

Imagine the ASU Athletic Department without debt. Following four years of frugal spending, ASU athletic director Gene Smith might have finally eliminated nearly $4 million worth of debt that the department had accrued before his arrival.

The department expects the final balance remaining on its debt to be paid off by June, the end of the academic year. Assistant athletic director Amy Schramm said the department has operated in the black, cutting into the deficit every year since Smith replaced Kevin White in July 2000.

Sprinting toward the top

After experiencing varied levels of success last year, the ASU men's and women's track and field teams hit the road this weekend to kick off their seasons.

Each team returns most of its impact athletes with a strong core of sprinters leading the men and distance runners pacing the women.
