Tuition protests aimed at Legislature


Joe Rondone / THE STATE PRESS
Students including USG President-elect Ross Meyer gather at the MU and march to Fulton Center, which houses the presidentís office, in protest of the proposed 8.5 percent tuition increase at ASU.
More than 50 students in bright orange T-shirts stood outside the Fulton Center Wednesday shouting, "Hey Mikey, we can't survive 8.5," as part of a campaign to lower next year's tuition increase.

The message, directed at ASU President Michael Crow, referred to the administration's proposed 8.5 percent tuition increase for the 2006-07 school year. The event was part of a campaign to get the state Legislature to fully fund the University system.

Some worry mandatory meal plan could be harmful to campus diversity

The meal plan required for next year's incoming residents could negatively affect on-campus diversity, according to some ASU organizations. Representatives of Adelante and Phoenix Union Devils wrote to the Arizona Board of Regents that the meal plan was a "threat to diversity in Residential Life."

On the cover
"I'm a terrorist," casually declares global studies freshman Matt Morgan, staring intently into the glare of his computer screen. "It's my job to plant the bomb without any counter-terrorists getting in the way."

Morgan hardly looks the part. Dressed in shorts, a baggy T-shirt, with blond curls tucked neatly underneath a baseball cap, Morgan looks a lot like your average college student.

But then he is a college kid; it's just that he's also a terrorist in his spare time -- his video gaming time. Tonight, at Warzone Gaming on McClintock and Elliot in Tempe, Morgan's hands -- one massaging his mouse, the other twitching above his keyboard -- are about to start moving wildly, causing a havoc of bullets and explosions on the screen.

Combat Zone: Playing Soldier

The sun is barely peeking out over the Eastern horizon, casting gray light over the desert landscape. Twelve men and women dressed in camouflage crouch behind sparse bushes. Their boots dig into the dirt as they make their way uphill. They are searching for an enemy that they've been ordered to find and destroy.
