Sun Devils trounce Trojans in home finale

Bettina Hansen / THE STATE PRESS

Finesse is a word often associated with Pac-10 athletics.

Whether used in its appropriate context or as a veiled way to call the conference "soft," the Pac-10 can't seem to shake the word.

Opinions: Shun the hype of Obama's "hope"

SHOPE: Something is happening in American politics that seems to be taking the American left and, most notably, college campuses by storm. We all know it as "Obamamania."

Opinions: Ending Black History month

WRIGHT: Let me preface my discussion by saying that this has nothing to do with recognizing black people as important figures in history. I support that wholeheartedly.

The problem we face here is that the concept of observing February as Black History Month is, while well-intentioned, racist. We have set apart an entire month of the calendar toward focusing only on historical black people. They are being singled out, and the very act of singling a group out creates prejudiced feelings in other groups involved.

Delhi Palace provides destination for those with adventurous palates

John Battaglia / THE STATE PRESS

Review: Tasty Tapas at T. Cook's
T. Cook's is an unlikely destination for hungry college students. Located at the lavish and luxurious Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, it's a popular spot for celebrities, but not collegiates. The upscale restaurant produces an array of dinner plates with exotic ingredients and extravagant price tags. While dinner might be out of the question even for some patrons well beyond their collegiate years, anyone with $20 to spare can afford to lunch at T. Cook's.

The Silent Majority
Sitting in class on a Monday, it's hard not to overhear dozens of stories about how "totally wasted" someone was over the weekend.

Take me home tonight
Moving into a new house or apartment is one of the most exciting aspects of transitioning into adulthood, but finding a space to rent isn't always easy. There are leases to sign, roommates to assemble and amenities to seek.
