After dropping its first two conference road games of the season last week, the ASU women's basketball team will play its final two home games this week, taking on the Washington schools at Wells Fargo Arena.


ASU looking to make history

Keep on rocking me, baby
For any student who has heard the phrase, "You were born, like, 40 years too late," this is an exciting time.


World peace
Among the many pageant girl stereotypes, my favorite might have to be "world peace" from the movie Miss Congeniality. For me, it might not be too far from the truth.


The cost of caution
Since 2006, the price of oral contraceptives has increased by 200 percent on some college campuses. While Congress stalls, sexually active students must decide whether protection is worth the money.
