Security concerns in Mexico, including the Nogales border seen here, caused ASU to warn students about travel to the country.
ASU issued a travel safety advisory Thursday that may make some students think twice about traveling to Mexico for spring break.

ASU advised the University community of increased violence among drug traffickers following a U.S. Department of State advisory issued Jan. 26 that urged American citizens to use common sense when traveling in Mexico.

Tuition increase skips health center

The Student Health and Wellness Center was expected to receive more than $4 million from increased tuition this year, but so far has seen less than 5 percent of that money.

During tuition talks in March, ASU President Michael Crow requested an $80 per student per academic year health and wellness fee that was shot down by the Arizona Board of Regents. Instead, the money was rolled into the overall tuition increase.

East Valley community unites for annual walk

Nearly 2,000 East Valley residents descended upon Tempe Town Lake Saturday to celebrate different cultures and enhance partnerships among communities.

The Regional Unity Walk and Diversity Festival is an annual event that originated in Tempe in 1997 but has grown to encompass the entire East Valley. People from Chandler, Gila River Indian Community, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Mesa, Queen Creek, Scottsdale and Tempe marched to Tempe Town Lake from different parts of the city in a symbolic act of unity.

Junior forward Ike Diogu slams home a dunk Saturday in ASUís 84-82 loss to California at Wells Fargo Arena.
The ASU men's basketball team has become the NCAA's version of a misleading personal ad.

It resembles an exciting team on paper but turns out to be nothing but a disappointment.

The latest in a line of second-rate performances at Wells Fargo Arena came Saturday night, as ASU dropped an 84-82 decision against California.

Rebounding blunder costs Sun Devils

Add another tally mark to the list of games the ASU men's basketball team has lost because of rebounding mishaps.

Two years ago, Stanford spoiled ASU's upset bid in the closing seconds when Josh Childress laid in a bucket after a missed free throw.

Challenged beliefs

ON THE COVER
With her veiled hair, modest clothing, and olive skin, pre-business junior Rema Nasaredden knows a thing or two about stereotyping.

Nasaredden says she was helping the Muslim Students Association at an informational table during the presidential debate when "this total right-wing Christian straight out of Texas walks up. He starts telling us how great it is that the U.S. is in Iraq and how what they are doing there is beautiful," she says.

Wrist-bandits

The craze started with Nike. In 2004, the sprawling athletic company began manufacturing rubber wristbands for basketball players embossed with words such as Player, Baller and Respect.

The bands became officially mainstream last May when famous bicyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong teamed with Nike to make a wristband solely to benefit cancer research. It is yellow and says, "Livestrong."
