The 4th floor of the Social Sciences building has been declared a "red" zone due to its unsafe and dilapidated conditions.
Four years of low funding for building maintenance has changed the face of ASU, and University officials say the state Legislature is to blame.

ASU President Michael Crow said 24, or nearly 16 percent, of ASU's buildings are code red, meaning they are beyond repair.

BREAKING NEWS: Hill admits to alcohol abuse

Former ASU tailback Hakim Hill admitted Monday to having a history of alcohol abuse after being arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and assaulting a police officer at an Iowa City hotel.

"It's clear that the only time I have a problem is when I drink," Hill told The State Press in a statement. "There have been times that I thought I had control. I have refrained for long periods -- eight months at a time -- but there is something different about my blood chemistry, and when I drink, I usually lose control."

The forum, hosted by the Arizona Students Association, an organization that lobbies the state Legislature on issues affecting the universities, and ASU's Undergraduate Student Government gave students a chance to ask legislators questions about issues facing the University.

With its back against the wall and its postseason hopes hanging in the balance, the ASU men's basketball team showed it has some fight left in it.

After trailing by as many as 13 points early in the second half, ASU rallied to beat Oregon 66-56 in front of 7,441 at Wells Fargo Arena on Saturday night.

Women's hoops bounce back at Oregon State

It wasn't the most convincing performance, but the ASU women's basketball team did what it had to do Saturday night to come away with a 66-56 win over Oregon State at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis.

Junior forward Amy Denson tied her career high with 18 points for the Sun Devils, one game after a 16-point, nine-rebound performance against Oregon on Thursday.

More than a number

State Press Magazine
The sweat slowly trickles from 19-year-old Courtney Gagle's forehead. Her heart is racing and her breathing is strained. She thinks about stopping, but she knows she shouldn't.

Gagle thinks to herself about how thrilled she is to be at the happiest place on earth as she walks through Disneyland in California. She trudges on for a few more feet until she realizes that no amount of excitement is enough to make her get to the next ride. She spots a bench, walks over and collapses as if she just ran a marathon at a record-breaking pace.

Welcome to Wal-Mart

To walk into Wal-Mart is to enter a world of endless noise, masses of merchandise stuffed on every available surface and a smiling old man saying, "Welcome to Wal-Mart."

The nation's largest retailer, known for its low, low prices, yellow smiley face icons and tendency to put the little guy out of business is tough to take, even in small doses. But just imagine working there.
