After a day of wild speculation at San Diego State University, President Thomas Day implored students and faculty members Friday to form a unified campus response to radical budget cuts taking place next year. Appearing embattled and weary at an afternoon rally in a crowded student union auditorium, Day staved off queries about which departments and professors were on the chopping block, then listened to suggestions on lessening or avoiding wholesale departmental slashing.

San Diego State University is the latest Cal State campus to impose a mandatory "student success fee," a controversial new charge that critics have blasted as a sidestep around the system's commitment to freeze tuition. Students in the fall will pay $50, with the fee increasing over the next four years to $200 per semester. This is in addition to the current annual tuition of $5,472 and other campus-based enrollment fees that average more than $1,200. The San Diego campus was among several -- Fullerton, Dominguez Hills and Fresno -- that were considering the success fees to help pay for basic educational services such as faculty hiring, increased class offerings, counseling and other needs.

Marisa Mullendore has quickly adjusted to the swing of things in her dormitory at San Diego State University. The 21-year-old San Diegan likes being able to put burritos into the refrigerator in her room, play pool with her roommate, take breakfast by herself at the SDSU West Commons, and rock the night away in dance marathons. Marisa also religiously totes her Star Trek book when she ventures around the residence hall.

On a Saturday afternoon last month, Father Jim Baraniak noticed a young man alone in a pew at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in downtown Indianapolis. The man knelt, head in his arms, and seemed to be lost in prayer. A half-hour before Baraniak celebrated Mass for a group of NFL coaches and front-office officials in town for the scouting combine at nearby Lucas Oil Stadium, the young man stood up, walked over and asked to talk. A name emerged from the NFL-issued credentials dangling around his neck: Adam Muema.

Frederick Martin Davidson, shackled and downcast, pleaded not guilty Monday to three counts of murder in the fatal shootings Thursday of three engineering professors at San Diego State University.

Children who are disciplined with a slap or a spanking are generally less competent--and less confident--than children who don't receive physical punishment in the home, according to a San Diego State University study released Monday. The study, conducted this spring and summer in several San Diego County elementary schools, examined the effect of physical punishment on a child's self-esteem. According to Dr. Anthony J.

One of the most provocative and least visible local architects is Eugene Ray, head of the environmental design program at San Diego State University for 20 years. Ray, a multidisciplinary thinker in the tradition of R. Buckminster Fuller, hasn't found widespread acceptance for his ideas, yet he remains committed to new materials, forms based on nature, a sensitivity to the environment and also to his strong belief that each project is a chance to invent something new.

The formula for writing American music, according to the late Virgil Thomson, is uncomplicated. All you have to do is be American, and anything you compose is ipso facto American music. By this simple criterion, Sunday evening's chamber concert "Music Down Under" at San Diego State University's Smith Recital Hall was quintessentially Australian. Everything except, of course, "Five Melodies for Piano" by Jack Body, who is from New Zealand.

I had been dating a man casually for four months but hadn't heard from him in three weeks. He was nice and a perfect nonthreatening entry into the dating world, as I had been separated for 2 1/2 years and was just starting to think about dating. But I woke up a few days before New Year's Eve and decided this would be the last one I spent alone. On a whim, I signed up for Chemistry.com using a nickname, Milly, so no one would recognize me. I posted a brief profile and two pictures and hit "send.

SACRAMENTO -- Prompted by the uproar over an incident of alleged racial harassment at San Jose State University, Assembly Speaker John A.

A woman is more likely to hold a seat on a Fortune 500 company board (15%), serve as a member of the clergy (15%) or work as an aerospace engineer (10%) than she is to direct a Hollywood movie (7%). A year after Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win an Oscar for best director for "The Hurt Locker," a new study indicates that the share of top behind-the-scenes positions held by women in Hollywood remains stagnant at low levels. Women held 16% of key jobs such as director and producer on the top 250 films of 2010 (as measured by domestic box-office receipts)

Marine Lance Cpl. Elmer Ugarte, recuperating from being shot in the shoulder during a firefight in Iraq, is thinking of going to college once his active-duty service is finished. "I made some history in Iraq," the 22-year-old Ugarte laughed. "Now I think I'd like to study history." Ugarte was among a dozen Marines brought to San Diego State University last week for the kind of VIP treatment usually reserved for the star athletes the Aztecs are recruiting.
