Undergraduate Student Government President Sophie O Keefe-Zelman and President Michael Crow discuss tuition Monday in the Memorial Union.
A proposed $1,000 fee for Barrett Honors College students dominated conversation during a tuition forum with ASU President Michael Crow on Monday.

About 100 students, the majority of whom were honors students, attended the open forum at the Memorial Union stage. They spent much of the first hour discussing the proposed fee, which could face a vote in April.

House representatives pass gay marriage memorial

A memorial asking the U.S. Congress to outlaw gay marriage passed the Arizona House of Representatives on Monday amid protests outside the Capitol.

The memorial still must pass the state Senate. If passed there, the House concurrent memorial, introduced by Rep. Warde Nichols, R-Chandler, would officially ask Congress to place an amendment in the U.S. Constitution that defines marriage as being between one man and one woman.

Entrepreneur awards announced

A scholarship for young entrepreneurs awarded a total of $200,000 to 16 ASU-led teams who came up with plans for their own businesses.

Entrepreneur Orin Edson donated $5.4 million to the University in October to encourage students to develop business goals. Edson started a small company out of his garage, which eventually built into the world's largest maker of pleasure and luxury boats.

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."

ON THE COVER
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.
POP CULTURE

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.
