Anyone facing credit card troubles, consumer scams or employment discrimination will soon have aid on campus, thanks to the attorney general's new satellite office in the College of Law.

Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard was on campus Thursday to celebrate the grand opening of the new office.

Students, ASU employees and Tempe residents can seek the assistance of about 44 undergraduate and graduate student volunteers at the office to get information on a range of issues, Goddard said.

Canyon erosion worries prof

An endangered fish fends for its existence in the cold waters of the Colorado River.

Riparian sandbars where boaters like to camp continue to wear away year after year.

These are some of the environmental issues eating away at the Grand Canyon, and scientists like Mark Schmeeckle.

ASU grad helps organize Vietnam War exhibit

A dimly lit room at the Tempe Historical Museum holds artifacts and memories of the refugees and their families who left Southeast Asia after the Vietnam War.

M Hoops: Ravens exhibition pushes team to the limit

Basketball nets one
After a slow start, Men's Basketball stepped it up to win its first game of the season.

ASU men's basketball coach Rob Evans said all week that despite the exhibition game status, this visiting team was no pushover.

He wasn't lying.

When the Carleton Ravens came within three points of the Sun Devils with just over five minutes remaining in the game, it became clear that the three-time defending Canadian national champions were no joke, making ASU work for the 70-58 victory.

"Our veterans stepped up to the line at the end of the game and made free throws to finish off the ballgame," Evans said. "And that's what you have to do."

Football: Sun Devils set to face Cougars

Just in case the college football gods weren't sold on ASU's resiliency, they made sure to stack the odds against it for Saturday's tilt against Washington State.

Case in point: The Cougars boast the nation's second leading rusher in Jerome Harrison, and ASU is one of the worst teams at stopping the run. Also, the Sun Devils will be without three of its top offensive linemen, while Washington State has a malicious defensive line.

The Cost of Culture

On the first Friday of every month, humble brick buildings turn into houses for festivals of light and sound. Innocent front yards are transformed into outdoor clubs as DJs spin records while pedestrians venture off the sidewalk to try a few new dance moves. The walkways come alive with people from every side of the Valley: roller derby enthusiasts, punks, soccer moms and college students.

Appropriately titled "First Fridays" what started as an agreement between a few galleries to hold openings on the same night has turned into one of the largest art walks in the country. A perusal of newspapers across the country reveals such art walks aren't uncommon in major cities and neither are the problems that come with their success.

Work and School: Will Clean for Food

Patrick Lenderman hasn't paid for his own food in two months. Instead, his roommates feed him under an agreement they made at the beginning of the fall semester. Lenderman cleans their house, and his roommates understand that whatever is in the refrigerator is up for grabs.

Enjoy the Scenery: Ratings Game

ASU's Palm Walk, the walkway from the University Bridge on the north side of campus to the Student Recreation Complex on the south, has been a selling point for ASU tour guides for years.
