Police looking for leads in possible kidnapping

ASU police are searching for leads in a possible kidnapping reported on the Tempe campus Thursday night.

Regents increase tuition statewide

The Arizona Board of Regents increased ASU Main in-state tuition by 8.5 percent for both graduate and undergraduate students Thursday, in line with what ASU President Michael Crow recommended earlier last month.

Crow battles proposed credit-hour crackdown

ASU President Michael Crow addressed a bill in the state Legislature at Thursday's Arizona Board of Regents meeting that would stop state funding for students who had earned more than 140 credit hours.

He said the bill would have a negative effect on ASU and students.

Performers with U-Stage, a Japanese traveling troupe, make audience members laugh with their antics.
At the Matsuri Festival of Japan in downtown Phoenix, thousands ´┐Żof locals and out-of-towners amble down the walkways of Heritage and Science Park. They are shopping for authentic Japanese products and eating at dozens of food stands, where barbecue fills the air with smoke and the smell of grilled chicken.

On three stages, Japanese and other performers model kimonos, sword fight, play Taiko drums and dance, educating audience members about Japanese culture while entertaining them. Though it draws an enormous crowd every year, the festival remains unknown to most locals, as does Japanese culture, rich in tradition and beauty.
