ASU, Phoenix Police team up for downtown campus

Student retention specialist Sara Lyness (left) and GPSA vice president of professional programs Katherine Branch (right) listent to members of the College of Public programs discuss the ways in which ASU will address safety and security concerns around the new downtown campus earlier in the semester.
When ASU's downtown campus opens this fall, the University police will partner with the Phoenix Police Department to maintain a safe campus.
Unlike the Tempe campus where the Tempe police operate separately from University police, the downtown campus Department of Public Safety will work with Phoenix Police.
The Phoenix Police will be mainly responsible for the reactive side of campus security, including responding to calls and handling emergencies.
"The Phoenix Police Department will work with the city of Phoenix and the community to see that safety issues are met," said Richard Wilson, DPS downtown commander.

Downtown: Take a hike

Students attending the downtown campus next fall who choose to park on campus will have to walk up to one mile to get to class.

ASU administrators have secured spots in two parking garages in downtown Phoenix for students to use - the Forensics Science Center Garage on 7th Avenue and Jefferson Street and the Jackson Street Garage on 6th and Jackson streets, according to an e-mail sent out by ASU administrators.

Though the garages may be a long walk from campus, the e-mail sent out to students attending the downtown campus recommended students not bring bikes because of construction and lack of bike lines in downtown Phoenix.

Softball: New outlook breeds success

Kaitlin Cochran is greeted by teammates after belting a home run in ASU's Super Regional contest.
On the surface, it appears the 2006 ASU softball team exceeded expectations. Just don't tell that to first-year coach Clint Myers.
Sure the Sun Devils only won 30 games the season before and were breaking in an entirely new coaching staff, but Myers refused to let it be a rebuilding season. In fact, ASU enjoyed just the opposite.
The team won a school-record 53 games to go along with just 15 losses. It reached the College World Series in Oklahoma City for the first time since 2002.
