Students at ASU light up fewer cigarettes compared to students at other universities around the country, according to ASU surveys.

A Health and Wellness survey showed 21 percent of ASU students reported smoking in the last 30 days, said David Bower, health educator for Wellness and Health Promotion.

That's less than the national college average of 30 percent ,according to figures from the Centers for Disease Control.

Alcohol incidents up

The number of alcohol-related incidents reported at ASU's Tempe campus this semester is more than double the number reported before midterm week last fall.

Nearly 110 alcohol-related incidents occurring on or near the Tempe campus have been listed in daily ASU police logs during the first seven weeks of this semester.

New student regent wanted

Students interested in becoming a voice for Arizona university students have the opportunity to apply to be the new student regent for the Arizona Board of Regents.

Upon the resignation of ASU Student Regent Kolby Granville at the ABOR meeting in September, a student regent selection committee was formed to collect applications and choose three nominees for his replacement.

Junior goalkeeper Kim Bingham will be looking for her second consecutive shutout tonight against Washington State. Bingham has played every minute of the season for the Sun Devils and has accumulated 43 saves on the season.
Fresh off its second shutout of the season against Oregon last Sunday, ASU will head to the Northwest to take on Washington State tonight.

The Sun Devils will be looking to improve their standings within the Pac-10 after starting 1-1 in their first two contests.

"Washington State has been a perennial force in the league, and they always battle ASU. We went to overtime last year," women's soccer coach Ray Leone said. "They are experienced and tough, and we will have to play our best to succeed."

Volleyball: California thwarts ASU

The ASU volleyball team fell behind early Thursday night and never recovered, losing to No. 13 California in straight sets at Wells Fargo Arena.

The Sun Devils (6-10, 1-5) faced an uphill battle all night and could not string together any point runs to gain the momentum needed to get back into the match, dropping their fifth straight match after a promising start to the Pac-10 season 30-21, 30-20 and 30-27

Wishful Thinking

On the cover
John Tyler watches people walk by him as he sits near the fireplace inside the Memorial Union. He scrounges through his backpack, looking for his Japanese notes so he can study.

His thin body is engulfed by the chair as he searches through his textbook. Tyler takes off his sweat-stained ASU hat and reveals his jet-black hair as he scratches his head. The Japanese class is just one of the classes he is taking to complete a degree in English literature.

Local Apparel: By Design

One night while propping up the bar at Casey Moore's long time friends Matt Krise and Chuck D. started designing T-shirts on napkins. Twelve months later the pair are the proud proprietors of Spraygraphic Apparel.

'Hooligans' not as tough as it thinks

Should you have stumbled across the official Web site for "Green Street Hooligans," you would be familiar with the boldly brazen phrase that streaks across your screen: "The movie Hollywood doesn't want you to see."
