MY NAME IS...: Archie, The Sensor Squid Relation Games home, is on an inky-blue couch in the Brickyard.

As engineering students walk through the computers and labs of the Brickyard, they might stop and take a second look at Archie, a large stuffed squid that makes research look more like child's play.

After officials said last week ASU would consider requiring students to disclose mental health histories, the University clarified its position Friday and said no such policy is under consideration.

Opinions: In defense of my educational choices

WALLACE: Being a graduating senior majoring in literature, it's about daily someone purses their brow in conversation with me and asks what I'm going to "do with my degree."

They generally find the reply "I'm going to know about literature" to be either a laughable silly joke or the dangerously misguided musing of an idealist whose perspective on "real life" is downright infantile.

In these moments, the confused stops and sighs that sputter out of my interrogators are often much more of a response than whatever words they eventually manage. The whole scene feels like a pat on the head from a grown-up.

Opinions: Finding the candidate for Generation Y

MASCHOFF: This past Saturday, presidential candidate Mike Huckabee decided to make a little pit stop at the long-running, sometimes-funny "Saturday Night Live." With sketches ranging from Dana Carvey's Bush No. 1 to Darrell Hammond's Al Gore to the dead-on impersonation of Bush No. 2 by Will Ferrell, "SNL" has become the go-to show for every young generation's political satire in the last 30 years. Therefore, I was not surprised to see Huckabee, who has also been frequenting "The Colbert Report," sitting right next to Seth Meyers at the "Weekend Update" desk trying to make a bid to the 18 to 25 audience in an attempt to save his failing campaign.

Trendy thrift stores
Spring is a time where new wardrobe additions are essential, and so is extra money.

Talkin' shit: colon hydrotherapy
I put my ass on the line for SPM literally. A lot of people talk shit, but not enough people talk about their shit.
