Who you gonna call?

Katarina Djordjevic an undeclared freshman and Kailee Devlin a pre-med freshman catch a ride from the Safety Escort Service to Hassyampa Academic Village from Manzanita Hall Friday night.
ASU's Tempe campus changes at night.

Glowing orange lights backlight campus structures. Palm Walk, bustling at noon, is littered with only a few stragglers meandering back to their dorm rooms.

And as undeclared freshman Naiquisia Hensey said, "You don't know where anyone lurks."

With news of the "Serial Shooters" and "Baseline Killer" and arrests in these cases dominating headlines, safety has been a much larger concern for parents and students this fall than in the past.

Polytechnic students fed up with campus shuttles

Not everything in life is free, but two days of shuttle service was.

Students rode the shuttle from Tempe to Polytechnic for free Monday and Tuesday after some passengers said weeks of problems with the service was a big inconvenience.

Judge mulls Wade lawsuit

The Arizona Board of Regents, former athletic director Gene Smith and ASU football coach Dirk Koetter will find out by Nov. 14 whether they will remain defendants in a wrongful-death lawsuit.

Nordqvist makes immediate impact


ASU Freshman golfer, Anna Nordqvist
Anna Nordqvist wasted no time making an impression for the ASU women's golf team.

At the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational Sept. 11-12 in Albuquerque, N.M., the freshman played her first three rounds at par or better (73-73-69), to finish 4-under par.

"The play of Anna was just outstanding," ASU coach Melissa Luellen said.

The Swedish import of the No. 2-ranked Sun Devils made an impressive debut, finishing one stroke away from capturing her first individual collegiate tournament.

"I didn't know I was so close," Nordqvist said.

The freshman said her stellar play was a result of her overall consistency.

On the cover: Buying beauty


Katie E. Lehman / STATE PRESS MAGAZINE
From Ashlee Simpson's nose and Pamela Anderson's breasts to Demi Moore's, well, everything, it's apparent that cosmetic surgery has become a frequent occurrence among celebrities today.

But celebrities aren't the only ones going under the knife.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, patients between the ages of 19 and 34 made up about a quarter of the 11.5 million cosmetic procedures last year. All together, Americans spent $12.4 billion nipping and tucking.

Mass marketing

With such a large pool of young people, it's no wonder that surgeons like Dr. Summer Daiza of the Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale, located at 10900 N. Scottsdale Road, are advertising directly to ASU students.

Daiza ran an advertisement for 10 percent off breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, chemical peels, skin care and other cosmetic procedures in ASU's Camptoons promotion map.

Look devilishly good in ASU gear

Three weeks ago, I donned an oversized gold shirt and melted into an 18-karat student section (18 parts gold, 6 parts maroon) at the ASU football game.

In the midst of these games, overwhelming energy vibrates throughout stands. One cannot help but smile, even at the shouted obscenities that show support for our Sun Devils. And the best part is that school spirit spills into the regular week.
