Artist Mary Lucking was commissioned by Tempe and ASU to create a public art project that explores the boundary between the city and the University. Lucking used quotes from ASU students on one side of the green billboards and interpreted the quotes visually on the other side.
With phrases like, "Network. It's not what you know, it's who you know," a new series of chalkboard-like signs on the edge of ASU's campus might make you wonder why you decided to go to college.

The signs are part of "Shared Terrain," a new cooperative public art project sponsored by ASU and Tempe and funded by a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts. The project is intended to encourage people to think differently about a place they pass every day, said Dianne Cripe, director of public art at ASU.

Athletics below NCAA academic standard

ASU's three most prominent athletic teams fell short of a new academic standard released Monday by the NCAA, dragging down the athletic department's overall score.

The men's basketball, football and baseball teams failed to make the cut in a preliminary national Academic Progress Rate assessment of the 2003-04 academic year.

Fulton takes swing at athletic dept. donors

After donating nearly $60 million to ASU academics, Ira A. Fulton has stepped onto a new playing field.

On Monday, Fulton and ASU Athletic Director Gene Smith announced "The Fulton Challenge," a matching-gift program in conjunction with the Sun Angel Foundation, an athletics department fundraising organization.

Squaring off against top-ranked opponents can be a great way to forge a group identity and test a team's strength.

The test came back negative Saturday afternoon, as No. 3 Brigham Young stomped the ASU men's lacrosse club 22-6 at the ASU band practice field.

Sensational in the starting lineup

Freshman designated hitter Willy Fox has started just three games for the ASU baseball team.

He has made sure to make them count. Fox, a Scottsdale Desert Mountain graduate, has hit three home runs as a starter -- one in each game. He has batted 4 for 11 with nine RBIs in the three games in which he has started.

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.
