Engineering freshman Zach Brandtes, top, and business freshman Alex Stephenson enjoy the sun Saturday afternoon at the Student Recreation Complex. Stephenson said he doesn't often wear sun block and does not fear the threat of skin cancer.
College students are especially susceptible to the most deadly form of skin cancer said an ASU health official.

Melanoma is the most common type of cancer in people ages 20 to 30. Young adults in Arizona are more susceptible to this type of cancer because the level of UV ray exposure is greater in the Southwest, said Karen Moses, assistant director of the Student Health and Wellness Center and head of Health Promotions at ASU.

Committee favors tiered tuition system

Students at ASU East and West may soon be paying less for their education than students in Tempe.

An Arizona Board of Regents committee approved a plan Wednesday that would create two distinct levels of tuition at ASU and three levels for the Arizona university system.

Police nab indecent exposure suspect

Police arrested a man near Adelphi Commons on Thursday evening on charges of indecent exposure and say they think he may be connected with similar incidents on and off campus.

Harry F. Kelley III, a 39-year-old New River man, was arrested by ASU police at the Oasis Apartments, 617 E. Apache Blvd., Thursday approximately 5 p.m. He was charged with indecent exposure and public sexual indecency, said Mark Roberts, a commander in the ASU Department of Public Safety.

Tempe residents empty pockets to fill bowls

Tempe Empty Bowls and members of the Tempe Community Council joined to raise money and awareness for the hungry at an event in downtown Tempe this weekend. With a donation of $10, participants received handcrafted ceramic bowls and a lunch of soup, bread and water.

Men's hoops drops ball, tourney hopes

The ASU men's basketball team has been plagued by missed opportunities all season. The outcome of Saturday's game against Washington State was not predictable, but inevitable.

Ahead by one with less than 20 seconds remaining the Sun Devils were a rebound away from taking control. Instead, ASU fumbled away the ball and the game, losing 57-55 to Washington State in Pullman, Wash.

Devils bounce back against Baylor

After his team recorded the last out Friday night, ASU baseball coach Pat Murphy pumped his fists toward the crowd and let out a yell that washed away six games worth of frustration.

Junior right fielder Travis Buck's seventh inning grand slam led the Sun Devils to a 5-3 victory over No. 8 Baylor in the series opener at Packard Stadium, ending a record-tying six-game losing streak. The win was ASU's first in more than two weeks.

His own direction

Zachary Yoshioka is doing pretty well. While running Ballistic Entertainment, Yoshioka shoots film of events like celebrity golf tournaments and music videos. At only 23-years-old, Yoshioka has filmed 14 movies.
Zachary Yoshioka's parents wanted what every parent wants for their son: a decent job, a nice girl, some stability.

But Yoshioka, who graduated from ASU in May, isn't the type to do what other people expect him to do. While most students were struggling to figure out what the post-graduation road held for them, Yoshioka was paving his own.

Body beautiful

Picture it: Hayden Lawn, next week. The lawn is covered with nude torsos, causing passersby to gawk, stop and ask questions. But that's the whole point.

"I'm trying to get people to look at each other in terms of human beings," says artist Larry Kirkwood, who will display body casts of nude torsos on Hayden Lawn and in front of the Memorial Union as part of Body Pride Week, which runs from Monday through March 5.
