Breaking the silence In the past two years, six UA students have committed suicide. One mother shares the pain in hopes of preventing more deaths. BY BRITTNY MEJIA The Daily Wildcat
There are days when Liz Campbell hides in the back room of the building where she works in Scottsdale, Ariz., when she can’t handle being out on the floor. On those days, the thoughts of her daughter’s suicide overwhelm her and force her to take a few minutes to collect herself. “I’m not sure that you ever really heal from it. You just simply learn not to let it dominate your life,” Liz Campbell said. “It will never go away.” When her daughter Caitlin Campbell chose to attend the UA in 2010, she went without her close-knit group of friends, who were heading off to Arizona State University. She made a new group of friends in Tucson and was involved in a theater group. However, about two years after she arrived, a friend at the university killed herself. Less than a year later, Caitlin Campbell walked into the desert and took her own life.
Of the 18 reported student deaths in 2012, four of them were suicides, according to the Dean of Students Office. In 2013 the number decreased, with two suicides out of 15 reported student deaths. While the Dean of Students Office tries to track the cause of death for all students, sometimes families do not wish to disclose or there is a lack of information, said Kendal Washington White, assistant vice president for student affairs and dean of students, which could mean the number of suicides is higher. When the Dean of Students Office is notified of a student’s death, staff will try to learn as much about the student as possible and notify key individuals and departments, such as instructors, Residence Life and the necessary academic departments. Staff will also work with Counseling and Psychological Services to provide support to peers of the deceased student and will contact parents of the student to offer support with administrative issues, such as packing and moving items out of a residence hall and closing out the student’s records. The office also conducts follow-up with those impacted to provide continued support, White said. “We try to do as much as we can to support the family members of the deceased student, but also to provide support for the university community,” White said. When Caitlin Campbell killed herself in January 2013, Liz Campbell said her family was assigned an advocate who collected her daughter’s records. The advocate also went to each of her professors to inform them of what had happened. The school also reached out to Caitlin Campbell’s younger sister, Kiri Campbell, a freshman at the time, to let her know she could take the semester off from classes if she needed to. “The people at the U of A were fabulous,” Liz Campbell said. “It was incredibly well orchestrated and made it so easy for us. They were really very good and just very kind and understanding.” White said the most important goal of the Dean of Students Office is to provide students with help. The office allows for campus members to report concerns about a student with a phone call or via an online

form on its website. From there, staff can reach out to the student in question either over email or on the phone to provide support. “Being part of a community means we watch out for each other and care for each other,” White said. “It doesn’t matter what your role is on campus — if you see something, say something.” Liz Campbell said she wasn’t sure what the outcome would have been if her daughter had received more intervention and outreach efforts. “I just don’t know if that would have had an impact on her or not,” Liz Campbell said. “But if it only impacts one student, I would be good with that.”
Suicide prevention outreach
At the UA, there are a wide variety of suicide prevention efforts, including media campaigns and communication training for students, staff and faculty, as well as programs to help students de-stress. The Question, Persuade, Refer training provides background on college students and suicides and includes interactive role playing where participants can practice what they’ve learned. Since 2009, about 1,000 students, staff and faculty have been trained through the program. “Through this training, we’re not trying to ask people to be mental health clinicians,” said David Salafsky, director of Health Promotion and Preventive Services. “We’re just asking people to be curious about getting the skills so that they can raise these issues, and how to communicate effectively to try and get someone help.” In addition to the training, students can also seek help
of 15 student deaths in 2013 were suicides
through CAPS, which provides treatment for anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, family problems and other issues. “We care about this. … Suicide is a highly preventable problem,” director of CAPS Marian Binder said. “Most of the time people do not want to die, they are just looking for a way out of a painful problem. If we give them hope, we can help them see other alternatives.” Before Caitlin Campbell came to the UA, she had seen a psychologist, psychiatrist and counselors and tried acupuncture and a holistic approach. Liz Campbell said her daughter was open to trying these things because she knew “there was something off.” Liz Campbell said that although Caitlin Campbell visited counselors in Tucson, she did not seek out any help at the university, which she believes was because her daughter wanted to be known for her academics and not for having mental health issues. Salafsky said one of the most significant issues Campus Health Service staff is facing is trying to help students who don’t want to be connected with mental health issues.

“I think things have gotten better with reducing the stigma around mental health and health seeking, but we still have a ways to go,” he said. “We still know that stigma exists and it prevents people who … need help from reaching out and coming to that first counseling appointment.”
Reaching out to classmates
Liz Campbell said she believes prevention efforts can help students feel more supported and more comfortable talking about suicide without fear of recrimination. She added that helping teach students how to recognize and properly address depression is vital. “I think, personally, it’s important to train kids to see the signs of distress,” Liz Campbell said. “Had some of her friends been able to see the symptoms, I think they might have had more impact than professionals. They might have been able to provide a better support, or alert someone … to step in and help.” Liz Campbell said students should ensure that their friends know they’re there to support them and that they have time for them. She said while at the UA, her daughter missed her group of friends from high school. Although she recognizes suicide is a difficult topic, Liz Campbell said, it is necessary to discuss it. “People don’t like to acknowledge it because it’s so awful. The thought of somebody actually being at the point that they would take their own life is horrible,”

Beantown brashness: Deal with it BYJazmine foster-HAll The Daily Wildcat
came to Arizona for the heat. The program for journalism is good and the sports teams are good and the mascot is good, but at the end of the day I came to Arizona because there’s no way in hell 3 feet of snow will barricade me into my house here, like it does every winter back home. I grew up in Boston, and there’s a certain personality type that comes with that. I’m loud, I have a quick temper and I swear like a sailor — worse than a sailor, actually, because my grandpa was in the Navy and he’s not nearly as profane as I am. Where I grew up, this is all totally normal. If you’re nice to strangers on the street, or even to your friends, you’re probably not from the area. Coming to Arizona was a serious culture shock — not so much for me as for the people around me. Sure, it’s weird to have people smile and hold the door and make friendly conversation. But it’s for Tucsonans it’s probably weirder to be told to fuck off just for acting normally. Arizona is too friendly, too amiable, and I can only imagine how it feels to get hit with a girl like me: A Beantown broad with one eyebrow quirked and a sharp retort at the ready. I’m a novelty. Saying that makes me sound insanely self-important — which, being from Boston, I sort of am. But it’s also the truth. Whenever people hear I’m from back east, they perk right up. I get a lot of people who start excessively using “r” words, as though they are the key to unlocking the thick Bostonian accent that I don’t actually have. On occasion I drop my “r”s, because they just don’t matter anyway, but only when I’m extremely tired do I sound like “Good Will Hunting.” And that’s the funny part: these people have already heard me speak. I’ve been talking to them for a while, but as soon as they hear “I’m from Boston” they expect me to park their car in Harvard Yard, even though I haven’t dropped one goddamn “r” in their presence. One kid even had the audacity to, upon learning of my homeland, point to his blue jeans and say “khakis.” I tried to explain to him that he was actually wearing jeans, and he gave me this confused look and said, “That’s how you say car keys!” First of all, no it isn’t. When pronounced with a Boston accent car keys looks more like “cah keys” than khakis. More importantly, where does this kid get off making fun of my accent? Why is being from Boston so funny? I mean, I get that accents are cool. Any time I hear a British accent I pay a little more attention. Scottish accents make me swoon. I always thought that accents conveyed a sort of sexy foreign allure, that they were attractive because they represented a place I’d never been. But I never expected to be the voice that attracts attention because of the way it pronounces words. It’s wicked irritating. Wicked, that’s another thing. I don’t have the accent, but I have the words — all these little things that no one out here says. Frappes, candlepin bowling, bubblers and wicked, which is the absolute worst. Any time I say wicked, someone snickers. It’s so funny to everyone except for me. It’s like I’m saying nonsense words, just letters strung together with no meaning. Wicked. Even my best friend here laughs when I say wicked. She can’t help herself, and she’s a great friend, but it’s just wicked annoying. I came to Arizona for the heat, and I became a novelty, a foreigner in my own country, because I say things differently than the people around here. How absurd is that? My words are wrong, my accent is strange, I talk funny. Here’s something to consider. Massachusetts was founded more than 200 years before anyone gave a shit about Arizona. If my state didn’t exist, you wouldn’t exist. So maybe, just maybe, I’m not the weird one. I’m from Boston and you talk funny. — Jazmine Foster-Hall is the assistant news editor.

Apropos of Nothing
Mr. Rodman goes straight to N. Korea, skips Washington BY Logan Rogers The Daily Wildcat
ormer NBA star Dennis Rodman recently took his talents to an unlikely location: the nation of North Korea, better known for its totalitarian dictatorship than its basketball. Most people probably wouldn’t consider North Korea a good vacation spot, but Rodman has always marched to the beat of a different drummer — apparently, the same drummer as the more than 1 million active members of the North Korean army. In the 1990s, Rodman was wellknown by basketball fans for being one of the best rebounders in the NBA. But he was also well-known by non-basketball fans for having crazy multi-colored hairstyles, dating Madonna and getting suspended from games for antics like head-butting a referee. Rodman loved drawing attention to himself, but since retiring in 2000, the media has been ignoring him despite his classy attempts at breaking into acting, reality TV and professional wrestling. Then Rodman schemed up another way to shock people —

It’s just not doing world. an awesome job for its people.

Kim has given millions of people great reasons to be very, very annoyed. Many Americans have criticized Rodman for going to North Korea, but Rodman and Kim have given each other a lot of great publicity. North Korea seems to be working out well for Rodman — maybe he should stay there for good. Then again, a story broke that Rodman has checked into an alcohol rehabilitation center. So maybe professional help is what he really needs, because excessive drinking can lead to questionable decisions. Like, to name a random example, leading a crowd of North Koreans in singing “Happy Birthday” to the dictator who oppresses them.

Pulse of the Pac From “No-reward holidays: Should we care?” by the Editorial Board If a holiday doesn’t mean we get a day off school or work, or that people are going to give us presents or candy or an excuse to drink and party [hardy], most of us don’t even care anymore. Observation of religious holidays that don’t include traditional giftgiving tends to fall by the wayside for most of us once we’re out of the aura of parental influence. And those are the days we’ve had pounded into our heads as holy days since our skulls were still soft. If we’re forgetting those days, do national holidays we’ve never associated with anything even stand a chance? Monday was Presidents Day. Some people probably knew that. Some people probably cared. Most of us in the newsroom were more worried about upcoming midterms and didn’t realize the day was a national holiday. The Daily Barometer Oregon State University

From “Injecting lies” by Michelle Chan Some fear the illness and others fear the needle... One survey in the Los Angeles County area concluded that nearly half of the parents of children under the age of 18 with autism spectrum disorders discontinued healthy vaccination practices due to the belief that such procedures led to developmental disorders, according to the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Parents who fail to provide their children with vaccinations also fail to provide protection against seriously debilitating or life-threatening diseases that may lead to infant mortality or permanent disability. Although their actions may originate from genuine concern for the developmental safety of their children, parents put their children at risk for some dangerous consequences.

From “Veterans’ PTSD deserves more attention than unjust U.S. wars” by Rose Jones U.S. victims of violence are suffering from PTSD in historic proportions. This forges a conundrum that will only stop when the wars stop. It is time to let foreign countries fight their own battles and make special interests warlords who have exploited our military for profit fend for themselves. … While our country’s leaders are pouring trillions into unnecessary wars, weapons and congressional special interest projects, we are ripe with internal violence from veterans who are suffering from a dangerous epidemic of PTSD. We need to begin healing our country’s physically and mentally wounded. The Daily Utah Chronicle University of Utah

Sorry for party hopping
A UA student was transported to the University of Arizona Medical Center for extreme intoxication on Feb. 9 at 3:30 a.m. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a report of a drunk student at Likins Residence Hall. When the officer arrived, University Emergency Medical Services was already checking the student’s vital signs. The student’s roommate told the officer that the student had started drinking at the Delta Chi fraternity house, then gone to the Kappa Sigma fraternity house. She said the student was drinking hard liquor, maybe whiskey or vodka, and had about five shots. The roommate told the officer the student got home at around 3 a.m. and started vomiting. The roommate called the on-call resident assistant for help. The Tucson Fire Department took the student to UAMC for extreme intoxication. The officer followed up with the student at the hospital and told her she would be diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

Just passing through
A non-UA affiliated man was arrested for two outstanding warrants from the Tucson Police Department on Feb. 12 at 2:48 p.m. A UAPD officer noticed the man digging through a trash bin outside the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity house. The man told the officer he had never been told not to dig in trash before and he was just passing through. A warrants check on the man showed two confirmed TPD warrants. The officer put the man in handcuffs and searched him. He had a large, machete-like knife strapped to his bicycle. The man was taken to Pima County Jail and booked for the warrants. His bicycle and knife were placed in safekeeping. The officer warned the man not to return to campus to look through trash or he could get an exclusionary order.

The No. 4-ranked Arizona men’s basketball team will attempt to recover in Salt Lake City when the Wildcats take on Utah on Wednesday evening at the Huntsman Center. Head coach Sean Miller is expecting the matchup to be a challenging one, especially considering Arizona is fresh off a loss against ASU and struggling to forge a consistent offensive identity. “When we go to Utah, is it going to be hard? No question,” Miller said. “[Utah head coach] Larry Krystkowiak and his staff have really done a great job, especially when you consider where their program was a couple years ago. It’s amazing.” The Utes were 6-25 in 201112 and 15-18 in 2012-13. This is Krystkowiak’s third season. Utah has won 16 of its 17 home games this year and has beaten opponents by an average of 23 points per contest at Huntsman this season. While Utah leads the all-time series with Arizona 28-26, the Wildcats have claimed eight straight victories over the Utes and 11 of the

Rich Rod should be more flexible BY TYLER KECKEISEN The Daily Wildcat
Arizona got off to a slow start defensively and offensively. Troupe was on the mound the first two innings and allowed six runs in his debut as a starter. “The hardest thing is, you [have to] find who the right guys are and sometimes that’s painful,” Lopez said. Troupe had a difficult time getting the last out during the top of the second inning, and sophomore Cody Moffett was called in to relieve him. Arizona’s defense made a quick turnaround and Moffett recorded four strikeouts by the time the top of the fourth inning came around. Moffett finished with six strikeouts and allowed two hits on 53 pitches in 4.1 innings before junior Nathan Bannister replaced him. “I was just trying to hold them down, let our team come back in the game, just throw strikes, that’s all I had to do,” Moffett said. “I think I threw a pretty good slider or cutter today and kept the
Arizona football hosted junior day last weekend and offered a handful of scholarships. Reportedly, no players committed, but those that pledge early will play a vital role in securing a strong 2015 class. Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said getting early commits is part of encouraging more players to become Wildcats. “When our [big time] guys committed, they were in,” Rodriguez said about two early commits, Cameron Denson and Trevor Wood, from the 2014 class. “And I think what happened was that they all talk to each other and they told their friends, ‘Hey, I’m committed and I’m in so why don’t you come join us?’” But the third-year coach, who has been coaching for two seasons and signed the 28th best class in the nation according to Rivals, doesn’t like when recruits aren’t solid commits. “There have been guys who have been committed to us who visited somewhere else, and [we’ve said,] ‘Go ahead, you’re no longer committed to us,’” Rodriguez said at a press conference on National Signing Day. “That’s kind of the deal. I keep reminding the guys that it’s our scholarship that we hand out, not theirs. It’s not like lottery tickets; they have earned it but it’s still ours.” Cornerback Naijiel Hale was a three-star recruit who tested the

BY ROSE ALY VALENZUELA The Daily Wildcat
It took Arizona baseball nine pitching rotations and five extra innings to win the first game of a two-game series against Utah Valley on Tuesday night. “It was good win, I thought,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “It was really good to see us battle back after a rough outing by [junior] Mathew Troupe.” Pinch hitter Tyler Krause got the walk-off hit to end the game in the 14th inning in his first at-bat of the season. “Luckily I got my shot and see who called me up and I took advantage of a good pitch and I drove it,” Krause said. Krause said his teammates kept him ready. “You have to stay with your teammates in the dugout, they keep you up,” Krause said. “It’s definitely harder to be in the dugout than [be] on the field, and you just have to stay focused, and luckily I was focused tonight. It feels great.”

Gibbons came around in the bottom of the seventh inning to do it again with a sacrifice fly to tie the game 7-7. “We had a lot of poor at-bats up to that,” Lopez said. Junior Tyler Parmenter shut the Wolverines down in the top of the 9th inning. Arizona wasn’t able to score in the bottom of the ninth and

the game went to extra innings, when freshman utility player Bobby Dalbec moved from first base to the hill and pitched for Arizona. Dalbec had a strikeout and allowed one hit and no runs. Lopez said the offense finished the game strong and looked different from the start of the game. “It was good to see Krause go deep, good to all of us,” Lopez said. Arizona will host Utah Valley today at 1 p.m. to wrap up the series and Tyler Crawford will be the starting pitcher.

ARIZONA HOCKEY was selected to play in the ACHA Men’s Division I National Championships for the first time since 2006.
BY ROSE ALY VALENZUELA The Daily Wildcat
The Arizona hockey team was selected to participate in the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division I National Championships, its first appearance since the 2005-06 season. Arizona was selected as the 15th seed and is scheduled to play the No. 18 seed, Illinois. Arizona softball is 9-0 after sweeping every opponent in the Hillenbrand Invitational: Grand Canyon, New Mexico, Tennessee State and then No. 4 Alabama. Arizona beat the Crimson Tide twice, including one by the mercy rule, the Wildcats’ first run rule over a top-10 team in four years. Arizona’s baseball team won its first series of the season for the 20th consecutive season. The Wildcats faced Kent State during the weekend and was able to win Sunday game to close and win the series. The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association named senior distance runner Lawi Lalang Men’s National Athlete of the Week. Lalang has had a record-breaking performance for three straight years at the NYRR Millrose Games at The Armory in New York, N.Y. Arizona track and field associate head coach James Li said he is proud of Lalang.

NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL referees have had a rough week. The Pac-12 and ACC admitted their officials made mistakes.
Pac-12 and Atlantic Coast Conference officials admitted their errors a little too late. Pac-12 officials said that ASU’s Jahii Carson should have received a technical foul for hanging on the rim during the Sun Devils’ upset of Arizona on Friday. Then on Saturday during the Maryland-Duke game, the officials didn’t call a jump ball, allowing Duke to receive consecutive possessions. The Arizona basketball team has been struggling offensively. During the last game the Wildcats played against ASU, junior guard T.J. McConnell had six turnovers while Arizona shot 35.9 percent overall and ASU shot 40 percent. The Arizona women’s basketball team is at the bottom of the Pac-12 conference after winning only one conference game. Arizona defeated ASU on Feb. 9 and has not won another conference game. The NCAA has no problem with attendance numbers for college football games. However, athletic directors and marketers are concerned with the way numbers are dropping when it comes to students attending the games. ESPN reporter Darren Rovell used Arizona’s student section being empty during the first half of the UA’s upset against Oregon on Nov. 23 as an example. — Follow Rose Aly Valenzuela @RoseAlyVal

Mady Adler pre-nursing freshman Q: What are you wearing today? A: A black and white tribal print midi-dress with wine-colored Steve Madden cut-out booties. Who is your style icon? I pull a lot of inspiration from Nasty Gal and their models, TopShop models, and my little sister is a model, so I go off of that a lot.
Q: Tell me about your outfit right now. A: I’m wearing a short-sleeved shirt with skull print on it, jeans and brown boots.
Describe your style: I’m more casual and boho-chic.
Who do you pull inspiration from for your daily outfits? I like to look at magazines and people walking around campus.
What’s your favorite article of clothing in your closet? Your go-to piece. My new Steve Madden booties that I’m wearing now. They’re burgundy, they got cutouts and buckles and I’m obsessed!
Now that the weather is warming up, what are you looking forward to wear most? Collared short-sleeved shirts, like the one I am wearing right now. They still look nice and it’s not too hot to wear, but still dressy.
How often do you wear them? All the time! I try and pair them with everything.
What is your favorite article of clothing in your closet right now? These brown Calvin Klein boots that I am wearing now, and they go with a lot of things in my closet.
What’s one trend you foresee becoming huge for this season? I don’t know, but for me I’ll be wearing a lot of midi-skirts, the ones that go past the knee, with a slit on the side.
What is one trend that guys should look out for this season? Colored shorts like Chubbies are coming in hot.
Where do you find yourself shopping the most for clothes? The website Asos has a lot of cute things that I like.
