The pay-to-play college admissions scandal that federal investigators disclosed last week underscored what many of us in university communities across the country already understood: Many in the American elite obsess over the status that a person’s alma mater confers to them rather than the education they received.
The State Press has been covering ASU in some capacity for almost 130 years, since before Tempe Normal School was a university or Arizona was a state.
At The State Press, excellence is measured by the journalism we produce, the ethical standards we adhere to in and out of the newsroom and our ability to collaborate and function as the voice of ASU. We produce our best content when we work together.
The salaries of all ASU employees are a matter of public record, and a binder containing those records currently resides under the Hayden Library front desk. Until now, checking out this binder was the only way for students to access these public records.
The magazine cover was black and white. In the center, scrawled in cursive script, was the cover story’s title: “Sensual Steel.” Behind the script was the side profile of a female breast, a nipple pierced with a barbell. The photo was paired with an article on extreme body modifications. The response to the photo was similarly extreme.
As a student media publication, the responsibility to produce representative, fair content weighs heavily on us, especially in today’s political climate.
ASU takes pride in being a university “measured not by whom we exclude, but rather by whom we include and how they succeed.” Inclusivity and accessibility are values which are deeply important not only to our University, but also to our democracy.

Bob Thorpe.
The State Press prides itself on journalistic independence. Although our publication has a faculty adviser from the University and falls under the jurisdiction of campus media, we fight to produce content independent of the influences of ASU’s administration.
