ASU law students completed 58,000 hours of free legal work in 2004, up 30 percent from 2003.

"We have been blessed enough to be in the position to learn this -- we owe it to the community to give back to them," said K Royal, director of pro bono development.

City, ASU struggle to solve housing puzzle

ASU students and Tempe officials don't seem to make very good neighbors.

Student housing has become a hot issue lately, with city officials questioning the role students should play in Tempe's neighborhoods and ASU attempting to change its status as a commuter campus. ASU is in a tug-of-war between the city's wish to keep communities family friendly and the ever-growing need for on- and off-campus student housing.

Students, city work to improve cooperation

ASU students are gaining ground in the effort to increase cooperation with the Tempe City Council.

Two ASU student representatives met with the Tempe Education Partnerships Committee on Tuesday to discuss ways to make it easier for students to serve on city boards. Mark Mitchell, committee chair and vice mayor, said the issue has been a concern of the city for many years. Most city council boards and commissions require a three-year commitment.

Coaches, players react to academic rating

ASU coaches and players are speaking out after the University's three revenue-generating sports failed to meet a new academic rating released Monday by the NCAA.

SOFTBALL

Softball eager to 'bounce back'

It doesn't matter if you fall off the horse. It just matters whether you get back on it. Coming off a 3-0 loss to Kansas in the final game of last week's Palm Springs Classic, the ASU softball team perfers to get back in the saddle sooner than later.

Scheduled to play seven games in five days, ASU (11-3) can't afford to stay on the ground too long.

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.
