Price of freshman living going up

Incoming freshmen will pay thousands of dollars more to live on campus next year due to rising costs and new fees. For example, an in-state freshman living in Manzanita Hall, parking in Lot 59 East, and purchasing a $2,900 mandatory meal plan would pay $11,645 next year instead of $8,209 this year for the same hall and parking decal and no meal plan, according to estimates compiled by The State Press.

This would represent a $3,436, or 41.9 percent, increase. Journalism freshman and Manzanita resident Jeff Skrzypek said he wouldn't be able to afford the bill if he lived on campus next year. "I probably would have to get two jobs or work a lot of hours," Skrzypek said.

Take it like a woman


On the cover
On a small wooden rink toward the back of Castle Sports Club in Phoenix, 20 women race around on roller skates throwing large rubber balls at each other.

The balls are flying everywhere -- an exercise in learning to spot when a skater is coming up behind you. Skaters smash into walls and into each other. Every few minutes, someone takes a nasty spill onto the rink's starkly painted blue floor.

Outside this small circle, it's still largely a man's world. But inside, the women of the Arizona Roller Derby League are, literally, hell on wheels. They skate fast and viciously with the motto, "Get down and derby," they suffer broken bones and bruises and they often get into fist fights.
