Apache Crown Dancers perform Tuesday on Hayden Lawn during American Indian Day.
The American Indian Council -- the umbrella for all American Indian organizations at ASU -- celebrated American Indian Day with performances on Hayden Lawn from Akimel O'odham Basket Dancers and the White Mountain Apache Crown Dancers.

"[The event was set up to] show people, natives and non-natives, the native culture on campus," said Gya Watson, the event's master of ceremonies. It's important to showcase the native culture at the University, even though American Indians make up 2.3 percent of ASU's Tempe campus, said Hope Seweyestewa, a nursing sophomore who also won Miss Indian ASU -- a pageant set up to promote the ideals of American Indians.

Reindeer/Tiger Team plays music with a child-like innocence that still captivates the listener. Catch them this weekend at Trunk Space with Portland band We Quit.
Mr. Rogers inspired a generation of America's youth to get along with each other, respect their elders and eat three full meals a day. But he did more than just that -- he gave Eddy Crichton, a psychology senior, a name for his new band.

"The one time I watched television, it was Mr. Rogers," says Crichton, 22, who plays drums and sometimes guitar in the band. "There were a lot of friends who started a soccer league, but they got too competitive and weren't friends anymore." Mr. Rogers suggested the two groups form a Reindeer/Tiger Team, and inspiration for a band name was born.

Fashion: Fashion Week

My self-confidence is based on my clothing. My outfits are typically matched and styled for every occasion. I often feel the need to change my clothes a couple of times per day, because after a couple of hours I grow tired of my outfit. It's a sickness, honestly.
