UA community, profs. support DACA students




Friday, December 2, 2016 – Sunday, December 4, 2016

Professors from the UA, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University are encouraging schools to reaffirm their support for students worried about being deported under Donald Trump’s administration. President Barack Obama made Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, as an executive order in June 2012. DACA allows young adults who were brought into the U.S. illegally as children to continue to work or study without fear of deportation. Trump has spoken publicly about opposing DACA, leaving roughly 741,000 young people nervous about their futures. The university professors distributed an interactive letter endorsed by the Arizona State University Academic Council outlining all the expectations they hope schools uphold for DACA students. Anyone can add their name and affiliation to the roughly 1,300 professors and students who have already signed the

False Total Frat Move story sparks WRC controversy


The cancellation of the fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi’s philanthropy event “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” sparked controversy when an article published on the website Total Frat Move wrongly called

Total Frat Move published an article containing false information about the WRC declining to support an AEPi event out and criticized the UA Women’s Resource Center for being responsible. “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” is a national event intended for


men to raise awareness in their community about men’s sexualized violence toward women by walking one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. AEPi intended to

hold the event on Nov. 20 at the UA, and the fraternity’s philanthropy chair, Jack Kaplan, reached out to the WRC to see if they would support the event, but


they declined. The Total Frat Move article, published on Nov. 23, was apparently based on an email the website received claiming the WRC referred to Kaplan as a “fratboy” and told him that what he was doing was homophobic, transphobic and sexist.

TPD officers to carry Narcan for opioid overdoses University of Arizona Police Department officers will not carry Narcan for potential opiod overdoses, due to no narcotic overdoses being reported in the last six to 12 months BY AVA GARCIA @ava_garcia1

Tucson Police Department officers are now carrying Narcan, a treatment that can counterract the effects of opioid overdoses. The police department started looking into using Narcan around eight to 12 months ago when the department noticed an influx of fentanyl, a “highly toxic, very dangerous” synthetic opioid, in the area, according to James Scott, a lieutenant deputy commander of the Counter Narcotics Alliance with TPD. Officers found small amounts of this drug in heroin they seized, as well as in fake oxycodone. “Our concern because of this was because how toxic this can be in such minute amounts,” Scott said. “Two micrograms, about the size of a couple grains of salt, can actually be deadly.” There were 379 deaths attributed to drug overdose in Pima County in 2015, according to the 2015 report from the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner. The majority of those deaths were related to

opiate drugs or fentanyl. Fentanyl deaths increased from seven deaths in 2014 to 17 in 2015, according to the report. Scott said the department was also concerned about the safety of officers who “are out there on the street … [who] pull stuff out of people’s pockets all the time.” The department looked into different safety precautions and saw that with legislation they were able to carry naloxone, or Narcan, to use on patrol. “We may be able to save a life if we carry it,” Scott said. The University of Arizona Police Department doesn’t use Narcan because they haven’t had any reported instances of narcotic overdoses in the last six to 12 months, according to UAPD Officer Rene Hernandez. Hernandez said that if it were needed, the use of Narcan could be implemented in the department. “Narcan is an antagonist that blocks opioid receptors in the brain, making the effects of opioid overdoes gone immediately,’’ Scott said.

showing signs such as having paraphernalia nearby or exhibiting respiratory arrest. If needed, officers can administer another dose of Narcan if the first dose did not help. Flannery said people who are administered Narcan will still need medical observation beyond administration of the drug. Medical personnel are dispatched first to respond to medical problems, so they often arrive to help people in these situations first, Scott said, but sometimes officers happen to run into people in these situations. “We’ll now have a tool to ultimately save someone’s life,” he said. The only officers carrying Narcan now are patrol officers who are the first responders, Scott said. Narcan has not been used yet, and Scott said the department’s use of it may be infrequent because emergency medical services usually arrive first on the scene. “If you save one life, it makes it worth it, so we looked at it from that perspective,” Scott said.

Green Fund evaluates sustainability proposals BY AVA GARCIA @ava_garcia1

The UA Green Fund held an open meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 30 to review 33 pre-proposals for annual grants for next year. The Green Fund is a committee of 10 students who decide how a $400,000 fund for sustainability projects is allocated. Project leaders submit pre-proposals for annual grants of at least $1,500. After these pre-proposals are approved, they then submit their final proposals near the end of January for approval by the Green Fund, which is decided after further committee deliberations in February. This year’s amount of pre-proposals was the second-lowest the Green Fund has received, according to Madeline Ryder, the Green Fund chair and a second-year master’s student in the water, society and policy program. Ryder said the Green Fund has had trouble with marketing, even though the committee requires that projects they fund include some kind of way to market the Green Fund, such as putting the committee’s logo on t-shirts or making an announcement at a funded event. “It’s really incredible to me that a lot of students don’t know that $400,000 of their money goes toward this fund and that they can apply to use that money for projects that they think are necessary or useful,” Ryder said. Ryder said she thinks the marketing mechanism helps a little but is like “preaching to the choir.” As for the pre-proposals submitted, only three out of 33 did not pass. Ryder said the criteria for the pre-proposals to be approved were that they were feasible and were relevant to sustainability and students on campus. “It’s a pretty wide range of pre-proposals that we’re going to accept because we want to see them develop these ideas,” Ryder said. Julia Rudnick, the coordinator of campus sustainability programs, said she has noticed the Green Fund has shifted the kinds of things they are interested in funding over the years. “When it first started out, they were really interested in decreasing our carbon footprint here at the UA,” Rudnick said. “As time has gone by, they’re really interested in how does this

directly benefit students, like getting ready for jobs and in terms of engagement.” Diego Martinez-Lugo, the vice-chair of Green Fund and a senior majoring in environmental studies and geography, said he liked many of the proposed projects, but one that stood out to him was the Wildcat Green Reach project. This project proposed working with high school students in Tucson to develop grant-writing skills and sustainability projects. The pre-proposal requested a one-year grant of $18,200. “A lot of students that go to the university either

already have an environmental sustainability ethic when they come into it or they develop it toward the end of their undergraduate career, so when they get established they are about to graduate,” Martinez-Lugo said. “So it’s really important to develop that early on in someone’s development.” The amount of final proposals approved depends on the amount of money each proposal requests, Martinez-Lugo said. According to Green Fund treasurer and senior majoring in engineering management Nohe

Garcia’s report at the beginning of the meeting, the Green Fund has a budget this year of $470,900 and has allocated $257,000 so far. Ryder said the amount of money requested in the preproposals is twice the amount available. Because funding limits these proposals, details are important in deciding to approve final proposals, Ryder said. “It really boils down to people’s understanding of the content and their judgment on whether or not it best suits the students of the UA,” Ryder said.

The article, written by Rob Fox, also asserted that Kaplan cancelled the event because of fear of backlash. “So, uh, congrats on being the most mind-bogglingly employed human beings in America, staff of the University of Arizona Women’s Resource Center,” Fox concluded in his article. “You set out to make a difference and you did. By denying women some charity and alienating men who were innocently trying to help. Hooray!” Krista Millay, director of the WRC, sent out an email to her staff detailing her decision to not participate. She said, despite what was said in the Total Frat Move article, the WRC did not cancel AEPi’s event nor does it have the authority to do so. She also said that the WRC did not advocate for the event’s cancellation through protest or any similar conversations. “Jack Kaplan did invite the WRC to attend their ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ event,” Millay said in the email. “We declined to attend because we do not believe this method of sexual violence prevention reflects our values.” Millay explained that the WRC believes that sexual violence prevention is not a show and that it should actually work to end sexual assault. She added that the WRC does not agree with the humor behind men walking around in heels.

“This work should be survivor-centered and result in real, tangible changes that take time and effort,” Millay wrote. “Many of our fraternity men are doing this work. And it is particularly needed on a campus where a disproportionate percentage of our assaults occur in Greek houses. One funny event, and its media coverage, should not overshadow the hard work that is being done by so many other fraternity men whose quiet but steady commitment doesn’t get a lot of press.” Jack Kaplan was not available for comment, but AEPi’s president, Jonathan Burger, a junior studying political science and Middle Eastern studies, said that Total Frat Move is an unreliable news source and should not be trusted. He also said he was unaware that there was going to be any article until he saw it published. “All I really have to say about the philanthropy event is it’s sad that it had to come down to the WRC not agreeing with everything, but at the end of the day, it was a philanthropy that we were just trying to raise some money for domestic and sexual abuse, and we’re going to work with them and see what we can do together to make it a philanthropy in the spring,” Burger said. Burger declined to comment further on either Kaplan or the article. He emphasized his hope to work with the WRC in the future and raise money for a good cause. “The WRC has extended several invitations to work with Jack and AEPi

letter in an act of solidarity. The letter asks all Arizona universities and colleges to “take steps to ensure all students, regardless of background, beliefs or immigration status, will be supported in pursuit of their studies and degree completion.” The letter also calls for a guarantee of student privacy and readily available counseling for DACA students. Alberto Arenas, UA associate professor of environmental and sustainability education, said he signed the letter because he’s had students who either had undocumented family members or were undocumented themselves and “deserved all the help they could get.” “Because in the college of education we’re so concerned about the status and the future of these students, we completely support the idea that DACA should be renewed,” Arenas said. Marcy Wood is an associate professor of mathematics education who also signed the circulating letter. “There was a lot of faculty concerned about how our students were feeling,” Wood

said. “I think it’s important that we make sure we protect those students.” UA President Ann Weaver Hart also sent an email to all UA students and employees reaffirming the university’s support for DACA students on Nov. 24. “The UA statement publicly stakes out our position on protecting DACA student information, providing advice and counsel for those students

and ensuring any educational aspiration underway at the UA can be successfully completed regardless of events,” Hart said in the email.

the process requires. Her own immigration story is one of the motives she had for signing the letter. “As immigrants, we come here to get a better life for ourselves and our families,” Sakala said. “I just want this campus to feel safe for all students. I think we all deserve the opportunity to do the best we can and be as successful as we want to be.” Francy Luna Diaz, a political science junior, emigrated from Colombia to the U.S. in 2011. She also signed the letter after receiving it via email from a professor in the College of Gender and Women’s Studies. “I think it’s important the students in the DACA program are allowed to have the opportunity to get an education,” Luna Diaz said. “Since most of them came here as children, it’s the only country that they know. It’s the only culture and they only place they call home, so denying them the opportunity to get an education and be able to advance in life not only affects them personally but also affects the community in general.” According to a Center for American Progress study, terminating DACA would remove at least $433.4 billion from the U.S. gross domestic

product over a decade. Elizabeth Oglesby, an associate professor of geography and development and Latin American studies, said she signed the letter because, as a professor, she has a professional and ethical responsibility to support students. “Even if there were to be some sort of change with the Trump administration regarding the legal protection for the DACA students, that would not make them any less part of our university community,” Oglesby said. All three professors, Arenas, Wood and Oglesby, said they had not heard of any UA faculty speaking out in opposition of the renewal of DACA. The names on the list of people who have signed the letter have reached beyond campus boundaries as well. Ward 6 councilman Steve Kozachik holds slot number 1,235. “These people are here doing all the things we want all of our students to do,” Kozachik said. “They’re not criminals, they don’t deserve deportation, and we as a university community, and we as a community generally, need to support them.”

Theft in the dorm University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to a call about theft at the Arizona Sonora Residence Hall on Nov. 17. Officers met with the community director and a resident who said he had several items stolen from his room two different times. The resident said he woke up three weeks ago and noticed some items missing from his room, including a pair of sneakers, a pair of loafers, a green iPhone charger, 20-30 hangers and a box of bottles of e-cigarette juice. The resident didn’t report the missing items because he had hoped he would find them. The resident checked other rooms on his floor but couldn’t find them. On Nov. 8, he noticed that his e-cigarette was missing along with its charger and pods. The resident said he thinks it happened at night and his roommate is social with the other residents on their floor. He said it is common for people to come into and leave his room, and though he doesn’t have anyone specific in mind, he thinks the person who stole these items lives on his floor. He said he does not get along with his roommate or the other residents on their floor. The resident is in the process of moving to another dorm. Check the expiration date UAPD officers went to the UA Main Library on Nov. 12 for a call about a man trespassing on the property. Officers met with a library associate who said he recognized a man who was using a computer in the library as one of the people on the exclusionary order list on the UAPD website. Officers spoke with the man using the computer, and the man said he knew the order was close to expiring but wasn’t sure whether it had expired. The officers found that the exclusionary was active until Nov. 24. The man was not causing a disturbance and cooperated with officers. The man was arrested for violating the exclusionary order and was taken to Pima County Jail; he was booked on UAPD, Tucson Police Department and Pima County Sheriff’s Office warrants. The officers did not extend the order.

However, I would try to limit that to the first three quarters of the semester. If sleeping efficiently is a challenging habit to get into, one thing I have found helpful is shutting off technology about an hour before sleep. Feel free to relax by listening to music, because de-stressing yourself before bed is important for good sleep. Turn off artificial light to decrease the chances of being woken up during the night. With finals right around the corner,

staying focused in studies takes on a greater importance. By receiving adequate and goodquality sleep, one can optimize their performance for studies. One can achieve this by properly balancing and managing time. While one might sacrifice social time by allocating it to sleep, the benefits gained from it will outweigh the sacrifice. Who doesn’t like sleep, anyway? There’s definitely nothing more refreshing than waking up renewed from a full night’s sleep ready to bear down on the next day’s challenges.

Remember to be grateful during tough times BY ELIZABETH QUINLAN @DailyWildcat


ovember has been a long and rocky road, to say the least. Students were somehow expected to undergo the turmoil of the presidential election and then, in the same month, sit down with family and avoid getting into arguments about the results. College students experience the shock of the results more acutely than the general public because they constantly think and worry about the future they are expected to work in as a young adult. They have felt the tension brought on by the topics covered in the media, including never-ending coverage of shootings on the news and discussions about the Dakota pipeline, immigration policies, abortion, gun control and a smorgasbord of other topics. Maybe the most nerve-wracking , however, were the presidential nominees who never spoke about these topics headon and instead attacked each other. I am sure the tension has grown now

that we have our president-elect. Just after the election, it looked as though we were mourning ourselves. Students are tired and unhappy, either because their candidate won and others are protesting, or because their candidate lost and they feel defeated and scared, as though the U.S. will fall to shambles overnight. So, how did you fare on Thanksgiving day? Did your family bring up the election, or was it avoided to preserve the mood of the holiday? Thanksgiving has become more of a tradition now than an actual event to give thanks, just as Christmas is a commercialized holiday aimed at spending money to make others happy. It’s understandable why gratitude may not have been the first topic of discussion. It’s easy to dismiss Thanksgiving as a real holiday and recognize it as more of an excuse to fill up on turkey and ham. But it’s also important to use the time to be grateful for things that are taken for granted each day, especially in a political climate that is trying to change those values so much. I grew up in a household that couldn’t afford expensive Christmas gifts like a new video game console, TV, or even a new phone. Each year, my mom would

stress about buying me something that she could afford and which would still make me happy. Thanksgiving was a holiday about giving thanks, specifically for things like love from family, the ability to afford a new pair of shoes and for being able to celebrate a holiday when I knew it would be easier on my family’s wallet if we didn’t. I now spend a lot of time volunteering. My family’s condition has actually worsened since I left, but I try not to think about it much because I know they have weathered more storms than I could ever count. There are countless people in the world right now even less fortunate than I, in all sorts of different places, who have to spend their energy working toward rights they should already have. It’s astounding, really, to think that there are people in Flint and the Dakotas who have to protest for the right to access clean drinking water. The Black Lives Matter movement had been going on for years and is still gaining momentum. LGBTQ groups are still establishing a place in our society. This country—on the brink of so many revolutionary movements—is full of potential and college students, as the next working class, have the power to enforce

change by protesting, voicing opinions and using whatever privileges they have to help others who don’t. Although it may be difficult with problems on so many different fronts, this is a good time to reflect on how far we have come individually and as a nation. Many of us have had chances that others haven’t; even me, who grew up in a small, one-parent household on a dirt road for 18 years. College students have already accomplished an amiable feat considering all the years of preparation and stress leading up to college. No matter what you choose to do with your degree, you must remember that by simply being able to afford to go to college, you have had advantages that other students might not have. It is our duty now more than ever to invoke change and to support ideas, not people. Try to remember this next Thanksgiving when you’re at the dining room table expressing your thoughts about the president. It is more effective to advocate for disadvantaged people and express interest in a cause than to talk about a political leader whose ideas are so scattered that your family may feel threatened by the ideas you bring to the table.

UA immunobiology dept. head suggests you get flu vaccinated

BY HANNAH DAHL @DailyWildcat

survival of the flu virus increase. The fact that we go indoors and get closer to one another during the colder months also contributes to the spread of flu virus. One reason why flu virus is so successful is it can spread quickly and easily by sneezing and coughing.

It’s that time of year again. ‘Tis the season for ugly Christmas sweaters, hot chocolate and the flu. That’s right—the holiday season is synonymous with fevers, coughs and sore throats. To make sure you’re passing the pumpkin pie instead of the Kleenex box this year, we talked to Dr. Janko Nikolich-Zugich, head of the UA Department of Immunobiology, about the importance of flu vaccinations. DW: What is the flu virus? The flu virus is a small, unique virus with its genetic material chopped up into nine different segments. The flu virus itself can infect both human and animal hosts—that’s where you get things such as the bird flu or swine flu. If two different flu viruses infect the same host, the viruses will readily exchange their genetic material. That means the virus that comes out will potentially be different than either of the two that came in. Why does the flu require annual vaccinations, unlike other viruses? The main reason is the variability of the virus. Many other viruses and bacteria do not change that much, and so you can vaccinate once in a lifetime and then take a booster shot 10 years later. With the flu, it’s a different story because the virus varies so much. What’s in a flu vaccination? What you get in a shot is basically a vaccine cocktail of three different flu viruses. They are all dead, which means they are inactivated and cannot make you sick or replicate. How does the vaccination work to fight off the flu? The vaccination is trying to trick your immune system into thinking there is an infection,

Once the flu virus gets into even though the virus cannot your body, it’s multiply. going to rapidly Our immune What you multiply, entering systems— particularly our get in a shot your cells and them into white blood is basically a turning virus-producing cells—protect vaccine cocktail machinery.

What happens to your lymphocytes once they’ve eradicated the flu? Once you eliminate the infection, you don’t need billions of cells that are specific for a virus that is no longer in you. Most of your cells will die by programmed cell death. However, a larger army of them will stay with you, known as memory cells. These cells have already seen and recognized their virus, so they can protect you from the next infection of the same type. Why do we get the flu around the same time every year? Temperature patterns increase the likelihood of new flu strains hitting a given area at a particular time of year. As the weather gets colder in the U.S. from late August to September, the chances for the

Which factors make people susceptible? The main things that erode your immunity are poor nutrition and lack of sleep. The other part that helps is moderate-level exercise, which keeps your immune system going. Strenuous-level exercise can have a detrimental effect. In regards to nutrition, the diversity of your diet is what matters. A large amount of vegetables will give you all the minerals and micronutrients which are critical for the functioning of the immune system. Fighting off the flu is a very energy-dependent process, so you need to have sufficient energy and enough buildingblock material for your cells to multiply into thousands of virusfighting antibodies. Are there any negative sides to vaccinations? Some people may have allergic reactions, especially if they have egg allergies. In that case, there are egg-free versions of the vaccine. The famous case of autism and vaccinations is also untrue. There’s absolutely no evidence whatsoever that autism is in any way linked to them. Vaccines are exceptionally safe and have been successful in eradicating deadly diseases such as smallpox. What would you say to students wondering if they should get a flu vaccine this year? Vaccinations are a great idea. In the student population, the efficacy of the flu vaccine is very good and very strong. People who are vaccinated either don’t get the flu at all or get a much milder version.

Let’s talk about

The good, the bad and the downright ugly—sex doesn’t always end in a snug cuddle. We asked students how they deal with the post-sex blues BY BRI DARLING @bdarlingarizona

Editors note: Talking about sex is fun and foxy, but it’s still a taboo subject to be published for many individuals. We have only included the first name and year of the sourced students at their requests. We’ve all been there—you’re dating someone new and start hooking up, but those late-night activities aren’t exactly the way you thought they’d be. Conversation never dries up and you’re so into the way he looks in that button down or how she walks around in those sundresses, but for some reason, the sex just isn’t as great as you imagined. This realization is beyond upsetting, but walking away certainly shouldn’t be the first solution. Communication is a key aspect of any relationship, no matter how serious the relationship is. Two UA students shared their thoughts on what to do when the sex just isn’t cutting it. Evie, a junior, said the dynamics of such a conversation are more comfortable when you’re already in the moment. “I think, if anything, during that moment, you don’t want to just burst that person’s ego or be like, ‘No! I don’t like this,’” Evie said. “It’s really hard when you’re having sex with someone and maybe they were liking it but you weren’t. It [should be] 50/50, but it can’t always be that way, so you have to respect the other person’s enjoyment and just go with it.” It can be especially hard to bring up the topic without offending, as the other person can easily go on the defensive. “I think you need to say, like, ‘Hey, give me one moment, can we stop for a second and talk about what I kind of want to do?’” Evie said. “I wouldn’t put it in a very arrogant or mean way. I think it’s really important when you’re at that moment to be respectful and stay open-minded.” Sophia, a senior, said she thinks it’s important to be open-minded and confident in yourself when bringing up sex with your partner. “I’d probably just be like, ‘What’s your style?’” she said. “People definitely have a style that they like. Some are kinkier than

others, some people just like to do it and be really intimate, some people are more about the sex and less about the person. I think I would just get a take on what they’re in it for.” Figuring out personal feelings for your partner definitely plays a part in having this conversation. For some, like Sophia, not having feelings for your partner makes the conversation more difficult to have. For others, this conversation is easier when feelings aren’t a part of the picture. “I don’t think chemistry is something you can just end a relationship over,” Evie said. “If you really love someone, [good sex] might just take a little more work, but you’ll get there.” Another factor to consider is the personal background of your new sexual partner. On a college campus like the UA, students come from all over the world and likewise represent different cultures and religions. “Some people were raised with really liberal parents and they were able to talk about sex and probably have very little confusion when it comes to what to do in bed and how to mesh with someone,” Sophia said. “[On the other hand], some people were raised to think that sex is shameful, and that’s probably a contributor if you’re having problems in bed.” Breaking through barriers like religion, culture or upbringing can present challenges, but it’s not impossible. Sophia said she thinks anyone who is wanting to talk to a partner about making changes in the bedroom should first talk to a friend, but overall, staying openminded is key. “Just be cool with it—a conversation like that doesn’t mean that you’re bad in bed, it just means that you’re not on the same page,” Sophia said. “It might be pretty easy to get on the same page, you just have to be willing to talk about it.” While we can all hope that everyone we date will be perfect in bed, that’s rarely the case. Sex can be a deal-breaker, but so can communication. Life is full of sexual opportunities and who knows—maybe you and your partner share a crazy kink that neither of you have even dreamt of bringing into the bedroom.

FROM MILDLY DISAPPONTING TO wildly exciting, sex is never predictable. A common side effect of bad sex is the awkward, post-sex scroll through social media.


Daily wild DOG Junior Type/Breed: Olde English Bulldogge Age: 4 years Favorite thing to do: “Either sleep, eat human food or come here,” his owner, Cierra Franklin, a communications junior, said.

Reid Park Zoo will light up the night once again this winter with its annual Zoo Lights event. Every evening from Dec. 7 to Dec. 23, the zoo will glow thanks to colorful, animalshaped light fixtures. “Zoo Lights is a special time of year,” said Syndenn Harmon, the cashier supervisor at the zoo. “Everyone here loves to do it. It’s a fun place to be during the holidays.” It may be hard to see the animals in the dark, but the lights are just as interesting. The animated light show has hundreds of lights timed to different songs that flicker on and off to the beat of the music. For $9.50 for adults and $5.50 for children, visitors can experience a winter

wonderland at their local zoo. For Clara Cobb, the zoo’s marketing and communications director, this will be her first Zoo Lights in Tucson. She’s visited similar events at zoos across the country, though, and is excited to be a part of this event at Reid Park Zoo. “My favorite part is seeing the kids get so excited to be here,” Cobb said. And with a carousel and hot chocolate mixed in among the exhibits, who wouldn’t be excited? Kids can also visit Santa and tell him what they would like for Christmas this year. Zoo employees have been working to set this up since early September and have put in many hours to make this year’s Zoo Lights special. This year’s event brings a new addition: a

color-changing lion head. Events and Outreach Director Jed Dodds said the zoo has been working to make the lights sustainable. Seven or eight years ago, the zoo changed all the lights to LED lights, which are more energy-efficient and better for the environment. With over 100,000 lights total, this was a big project. “The idea is to have a fantasy wonderland that’s still thematic to our animals and zoo,” Dodds said. “As you walk through the zoo, you can see a lot of creativity.” The event has been going on for at least 25 years, according to Dodds. Whether it’s the lights in the shape of lions and gazelles, the multicolored tunnel lit up on all sides or the actual animals like the elephants and lions, Zoo Lights should have something exciting for everyone to see.

Don’t miss out on the extraordinary. Do the unexpected.

Champion equestrian Cameron Kay BY LINDSEY OTTO @lindsotto

After sitting on horseback at the mere age of 6, it became clear to now pre-business sophomore Cameron Kay that she had found her passion. Originally from West Bloomfield, Michigan, Kay dedicated herself to horseback riding and set high goals for herself from a young age. Every day after school, she drove two-anda-half hours to a big show barn to practice and would stay overnight to ride all weekend before driving home on Monday. Unlike typical sports, Kay said there was a unique relationship built through the riding. “It’s really special because for other sports, it’s simply you or possibly a team, but for horseback riding, it is you and an animal,” Kay said. “You have a special connection and relationship with your horse and know everything about that horse. You develop a human-like relationship.” As a junior in high school, Kay moved to Kentucky on her own to live with her

trainers so she could better equip herself for competitions. “All I did was ride and prepare,” Kay said. “I knew what I wanted to do: I wanted to make the U.S. team and I really wanted to win the Triple Crown.” Kay plunged head-first into her passion. She started in homeschooling and would work out up to five times a day in order to strengthen her skills. “There’s a lot of physical strength you have to have—you are basically controlling a 2,000-pound animal,” Kay said. “Obviously, the horses have great training and they take really good care of them, but a lot of it is you—the trainer can only do so much and you have to be physically fit. It’s definitely different than people think. Usually, they think it’s you just go and ride and it’s fun, but it’s a lifestyle. That’s all I did: sleep, eat, breathe, ride.” Kay said that her small stature was a major motivator for her. In riding, she said they want tall and skinny girls, but Kay’s short height did not keep her away in the slightest. Now with more than 13 years of experience, Kay holds over 15 world and national titles, including the first rider to ever win three Triple Crowns. She said making the U.S. Saddle Seat World Cup Team twice and competing in an Olympicsponsored event in South Africa were her

proudest accomplisments, though. In addition to individual events, the equestrian competitions include team events where riders draw random horses out of a hat and are paired up to compete with each other. “You have five minutes to connect with this horse, then you have to compete on it as if it was yours,” Kay said. “It’s really hard. There are a lot of times the team will get freaked out because we can’t get a horse to do something and the coaches are yelling at us, but it was so fun and you meet and make connections with so many different people.” Kay said her favorite part of competitions was the intense adrenaline rush that comes with it. She constantly strived to incite that feeling. Along with physical strength and the pursuit of adrenaline, Kay said perseverance is one of the keys to riding success. “You physically can’t do it without determination or something pushing you,” Kay said. “You can’t ride and not have determination— you have to set goals or you’re not going to be good or make it. I would say that’s the biggest part of the sport.” Looking ahead, Kay intends to stay involved with the sport but

not compete at the level she once did. While she contemplated going professional, Kay now prefers a change of pace. “I definitely want to continue riding— once it is in your system, it’s hard to get out,” Kay said. “But I’m ready to see what else is out there in the world, because riding is all I’ve done. Now I go out to the barn just to hang out and see everybody—that’s where my family is. They have all known me since I was itty bitty and it’s honestly my comfort zone. The barn is my home.”

Round 5: Sean Miller & Mark Few ready for LA battle BY SAUL BOOKMAN @Saul_Bookman

The No. 8 Gonzaga Bulldogs are set to take on the No. 16 Arizona Wildcats men’s basketball team Saturday in the Hoophall LA game presented by the Basketball Hall of Fame in the Staples Center in Los Angeles. “Arizona is a tremendous program and we have a great relationship with them,” said Gonzaga head coach Mark Few. “[Arizona head coach] Sean [Miller] is known for having tough defensive teams and this team is so long and athletic, it will be a great challenge.” The Zags go into the game winners of their last seven, including a win over No. 21 Iowa State. Each Bulldogs starter is averaging double-digits in scoring this season. Wildcat fans may remember Nigel WilliamsGoss, a Washington transfer, who leads the team in scoring with 12.8 points per game to go along with 5.8 rebounds per game. Gonzaga has had a long history with Arizona, going back to a second-round defeat in the NCAA Tournament in 2003. The more recent loss for Gonzaga came last year in Spokane, when

they blew a double-digit lead to lose 66-63 at home. Arizona comes into Saturday’s game depleted after losing point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright to a high ankle sprain during a win against Texas Southern on Wednesday. The Wildcats will have to lean heavily on lone senior Kadeem Allen and his defensive presence against the Bulldogs’ multi-talented backcourt. “Oh, we’ll be ready,” Allen said. “This game, you have to get your big boy pants on.” Allen will also rely on his freshman teammates to help him out. Lauri Markkanen, Kobi Simmons and Rawle Alkins are the three leading scorers for Arizona and combine for over 42 points per game. In order for Arizona to come out with a win, its defensive ability—mainly staying out of foul trouble— will have to be at a high level. Foul trouble plagued Arizona against Butler in Las Vegas when Markkanen fouled out with over three minutes left in the game. Gonzaga prides itself on transition baskets and outside shooting, but Arizona’s length should give the Bulldogs something they haven’t yet seen this year. Arizona center Chance


ARIZONA GUARD KOBI SIMMONS (2) slides past Texas Southern University defenders in McKale Center on Wednesday, Nov. 30. The Wildcats will have to rely on their freshmen to step up in Parker Jackson-Cartwright’s absence.

Comanche will be key in the low post, and Markkanen’s flexibility on the defensive end should play

in the Wildcats’ favor. This game will be played as part of a double header, featuring

USC and BYU in the nightcap. Tip-off is set for 3:30 p.m., to be televised on ESPN.

Arizona volleyball set for NCAA Tournament run BY NIKKI BAIM @nikkibaim22

Arizona women’s volleyball will travel to host Michigan State on Friday to face Cleveland State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. This is the Wildcats’ 19th NCAA Tournament appearance in the past 25 years. “I’m really proud of the kids and how they played throughout the year and handled the difficult situations that came up,” Arizona head coach David Rubio told Arizona Athletics. If Arizona finds victory against Cleveland State, it will face the winner between Fairfield and Michigan State. If the Wildcats can advance further, they will move on to Lincoln, Nebraska, where the Regional Semifinal and Regional Final rounds will be held. Friday will be the first meeting in program history between Cleveland State and Arizona. The Vikings climbed to a 25-5 overall record this year, going 14-2 in the Horizon League to

earn the conference title. With the 2016 bid, Cleveland State will be making its fourth appearance in the tournament in the last decade. In the previous three appearances, Cleveland State has not advanced past the opening round. The Vikings are led by head coach Chuck Voss, who has six 20-win seasons in his 17 years at Cleveland State, attributing to his recognition as the winningest coach in program history. If the Wildcats make it to the next round and face Michigan State in the Spartans’ home arena, Arizona should expect an all-out grudge match. The two teams have met three times before, as the Wildcats have the edge with a 2-1 overall record. But that one loss came in the first round of 2011 NCAA Tournament. “It’s always exciting to be back in the tournament,” Rubio said. “Michigan State and Cleveland State are both great opponents.” However, if Fairfield pulled off the upset

over Michigan State, the Wildcats will be in shape to add another successful postseason run for Rubio. If the Wildcats are able to skid past Cleveland State, both potential matchups will have the personnel to end Arizona’s season on a short note. Fairfield is on a 22-game winning streak, the longest in the country, with a 28-5 overall record and an undefeated record in the MAAC conference. Arizona faced 16 ranked opponents this season, earning one of the toughest schedules in the nation. Of the ranked Pac-12 Conference competition, Arizona won seven of the 13 matches, including wins against No. 9 UCLA and No. 12 Stanford. “We feel pretty confident that what we faced in the conference will prepare us for what we’ll see against Cleveland State,” Rubio said. The match between the Wildcats and Vikings starts at 3 p.m. and will be followed by Fairfield at No. 9-seeded Michigan State.

We feel pretty confident that what we faced in the conference will prepare us for what we’ll see against Cleveland State.” —Dave Rubio, Arizona head coach

Lucia Alonso, Taryn Griffey lead Wildcats to fourth win BY RYAN KELAPIRE @RKelapireUA

Lucia Alonso scored a career-high 15 points and Taryn Griffey added a season high of 19 as the Arizona women’s basketball team beat Florida Atlantic University 77-67 in McKale Center on Thursday night. Malena Washington and LaBrittney Jones also scored in double figures for Arizona as the Wildcats used a strong second-half performance to pull away with the victory, improving their record to 4-1 on the season. The Owls jumped out to an early 16-7 lead and led 39-38 at halftime, but Arizona outscored FAU 39-28 in the final two quarters. It was the Wildcats’ third comeback win this season. “Our starts are a little slow,” Griffey said. “We always get hit first, we don’t ever hit first.
