Friends 'shocked' by student's death

ASU provided counseling to more than 50 students and made it available to the family of a San Pablo Hall resident who was found dead in his room Friday morning.

Industrial design freshman Brian Carver was found by his roommate in his bed shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, said Manny Romero, ASU spokesman.

Several ASU plans get regents' OK

The Arizona Board of Regents approved project implementation Friday for the Arizona Biomedical Research Collaborative Building.

The 80,000-square-foot building would cost about $27.2 million and would be constructed at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus as a joint effort between ASU and UA. The universities would contribute $10 million and $17.2 million, respectively, to the project.

High gasoline prices drain students' wallets

Slight drops in gas prices might not bring the relief many ASU pocketbooks are hoping for.

ASU baseball coach Pat Murphy, right, described his team's troublesome trip to Oregon State as "not a fortunate weekend." The Sun Devils dropped two of three against Oregon State and fell to third place in the Pac-10.

On Friday, a questionable call gave No. 6 Oregon State a 6-5 victory over No. 17 ASU. Oregon State triumphed 5-1 on Sunday to hand ASU its first series defeat since early April. The Sun Devils (29-17, 10-5 Pac-10) fall to third place in the Pac-10, one game behind Oregon State (32-8, 11-4) and two behind No. 9 UA, which took two of three from No. 22 USC over the weekend.

ON THE COVER
Even when he was young, William Calvo knew he was different. Growing up in heavily Catholic Costa Rica, spirituality and the church always were important to Calvo. But there was another element to Calvo's personality that also was there, even though he did not know what it was at first.

Calvo was an effeminate child, a bit of an outcast. He liked He-man-type cartoons, not because he wanted to be like the superheroes, but because he was attracted to them.

In your own backyard: Caching in

Peter Belsky pulls his Jeep out of the Saguaro dorm parking lot. It's a warm Thursday afternoon, and while most students are in class or tanning by the pool, Belsky is getting ready to go on a "treasure hunt."

"Sometimes I'll try to find little ones on campus on Saturday mornings," says the business freshman. "And there used to be one on 'A' Mountain."
