Sometimes Rachel Garcia* must choose between paying this month’s rent or purchasing food. On days the UA pathology graduate student spends working in an on-campus lab, sometimes for 10 to 12 hours, she occasionally has trouble concentrating because of hunger. “I don’t have enough time in my day to earn enough money and earn my cost of living and afford to really eat,” Garcia said. “The first thing to go was books for classes, but then after that I couldn’t afford to buy food; that was going to have to go, too.” Garcia is one of many students at the UA dealing with a lack of access to enough affordable, nutritious food. Food insecurity is slowly increasing statewide, rising from 12.5 percent from 2000-2002 to 14.9 percent from 2010-2012. Food insecurity is not tracked specifically among college students, but a survey conducted from November to December 2013 by Jake Collins, a UA public health graduate student, found that of 140 UA students and staff, more than 60 percent had been food insecure in the last six months. A study published in the “Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior” in January found that at Western Oregon University, 59 percent of students were food insecure at some point during the previous year. “It shouldn’t be a thing that you have to stress about when you’re

a college student,” Collins said. “You have so many other things on your plate that food shouldn’t be an issue. My research was aiming to bring that awareness and hopefully get some more institutional recognition.” For college students, a lot of the issues with food security boil down to access to and the availability of healthy foods, said Deb Robinson, chief for the office of community innovation at the Arizona Department of Health Services. Campus pantries, farmers markets and food assistance programs are only some of the options students can use to help combat food insecurity. Although a stigma still exists around programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which provides for low-income families, Robinson said a positive sign is that Arizona SNAP participation was up to 79 percent of eligible households in 2011, a 14
percent increase since 2009. “More people are actually using that avenue to gain better food security, so I think that’s a positive step,” Robinson said. “It’s definitely a good avenue for college students to check out, especially when they don’t have a significant income or have financial strains with school.” Obstacles to receiving SNAP assistance include the time-consuming process of getting enrolled and a lack of awareness that one might qualify for food assistance, according to Michael McDonald, CEO of Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. “There’s a lot of education and outreach that needs to be done for SNAP,” McDonald said. “We’re just not getting the word out fast enough and educating people that they very well might be qualified for the benefit.” When it comes to those who do apply, the

ASUA officials for next term inducted BY SAVANNAH DOUGLAS The Daily Wildcat
The positions of the 2013-2014 ASUA elected officials have been handed on. The 2013-2014 ASUA members passed on words of wisdom and keepsakes to the incoming elected officials in the Student Union Memorial Center Kiva Room on Thursday. Former and current Associated Students of the University of Arizona members, UA staff and family attended the inauguration. ASUA President Issac Ortega, Executive Vice President Jordan Allison, Administrative Vice President Daniel Douglas and 10 elected ASUA senators were sworn in for the 2014-2015 school year by Supreme Court Chief Justice Eddie Walneck. The 2013-2014 ASUA Administrative Vice President Amanda Lester welcomed those gathering for the inauguration. “To those of us lucky to hold this position,” Lester said, “it is both life-changing and irreplaceable.” Lester offered a thank you to her executive team, holding back tears, and brought Douglas to the podium. Douglas is now in possession of the prized keepsakes of his

The first building ever built on the UA campus is slated to reopen in August after more than a year of renovations. Old Main has been closed as crews worked to restore the building, which was originally completed in 1891 . “Old Main is … certainly our longest-working building,” said Rodney Mackey , project manager for the Old Main renovation and associate director for planning and public-private partnerships at the UA . “Sometime in 2012 we realized that we really needed a major rehabilitation.” Old Main’s renovation will cost an estimated $13.5 million . The UA launched the Save Old Main campaign in October in an effort to fund the restoration effort. The campaign raised about $3 million in donations, and Save Old Main has since been folded into the broader Arizona Now fundraising campaign for the UA. The renovation is being

Abraham then pulled Ortega aside and told him the “president’s secret” before stepping down. “You were ready to go the second you got elected,” Abraham said to Ortega, “and it was only a matter of time before you kicked me out of office.” During his inauguration speech, Ortega spoke of the promises he had made in his platform, including the promise to put forth his full effort.
“I am really proud of all the senators and the newly elected VPs and I am really excited to get to work,” Ortega said. “I was a little nervous giving my speech, but I am really glad I had the opportunity to speak for the first time and say some things that were really on my mind.” Ortega said his first plans as president are to work with the newly appointed diversity director and build a new face for diversity inside and outside of ASUA this summer. Ortega said his determination is driven by

staff often sees clients who have a desire to be self-sufficient and don’t want to take handouts, McDonald added. For John Smith*, a graduate assistant and doctoral candidate, the narrative that people receiving food assistance are lazy and not looking for a job rings false. He said his decision to apply for the program in October 2012, two months after starting at the UA, was essential to provide for his two children under 3 years old, his wife and himself. “That’s an internal battle that you need to fight,” Smith said. “It’s not as hard of a battle for most people, because once you have a family that you’re supporting there’s nothing you won’t do. Feeling a little awkward or embarrassed is a small price to pay for maintaining security.” For Smith and his wife, a stay-at-home mother, shopping requires complex strategizing. Throughout the week, his wife makes a list of necessary food items. Then the couple calculates how to combine the $200 in food stamps they receive each month with “extreme couponing.” “There are those months where you’ve spent what you’ve budgeted, so then you’re really trying to manipulate what exists in your pantry to make things work until the next month,” Smith said. “Once you start going over that, you really think about, ‘How do we make the food stretch? What do I have to not buy this month in order for us to be comfortable in our stock of food?’ It’s a horrifyingly destabilizing feeling.” Student Assistance, run through the Dean of Students Office, works with 10 to 20 students a semester who are dealing with financial and food insecurity, according to Katherine Zilmer, senior coordinator for Student Assistance. For these students, money is going toward housing or tuition, which doesn’t leave much left over to pay for food, Zilmer said. Zilmer added that she believes the number of students dealing with food insecurity is much higher than what UA officials are seeing. “I think it’s an issue that students are embarrassed about and that they don’t want to talk about because they see a lot of their peers not having to face these daily challenges or struggles,” Zilmer said. “I’m confident that it’s much bigger than what we’re hearing about and that’s why it’s so important to get the word out that we can work with these students and there are things we can do to help them.” If Student Assistance staff find out about or hear from a student who is in need of

THE MAP ABOVE SHOWS grocery stores in the vicinity of the UA campus. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, on average 20 percent of households in this area are more than half a mile from a supermarket and do not own a vehicle.
The UA campus is one of many areas in Tucson that falls in what is known as a food desert. The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines this term as “urban neighborhoods and rural towns without ready access to fresh, healthy and affordable food.” The UA campus falls in a low-income area with grocery stores located more than half a mile away. “There are maps that show areas where there isn’t fresh fruits and vegetables
or full service grocery stores within a certain diameter,” Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said. “Trying to find ways to get healthier food into those areas is a real challenge.” In order to combat the problem of food deserts, Rothschild said he wants to utilize community gardens to bring people together and teach them how to eat healthfully. Rothschild estimated there are 33 active community gardens throughout Tucson, and
assistance, they will meet with them in person to review their needs and offer access to resources, such as the UA Campus Pantry, a nonprofit organization that provides free food to the campus. “I don’t think we’re ever going to solve that problem; we’re seeing it nationally,” Zilmer said. “But if we can help our students know that it’s OK and it’s OK to ask for help when you need it, we can help those students achieve their goals.” When Emily Carlisle, a studio art junior, has
said he hopes that number will increase. As of now, the issue of food insecurity is significant enough to attract the attention of city officials. “You could have an economy doing better but if a larger population is getting poorer it’s going to increase your food insecurity,” Rothschild said. “I don’t know that I’m seeing the problem get bigger, but I’m seeing a big enough problem already that we need to address it.”
run out of food, she’s asked her roommate to buy her dinner or relied on her boyfriend’s food supply. Carlisle, who comes from a singlemother home, cannot get a job to cover food costs because of her inflexible schedule. “There have been a couple of situations where I literally didn’t have any food left to eat,” Carlisle said. “I have been given a lot of opportunities and I’m really lucky to be here, but there are still problems I struggle with. I struggle to get enough food to eat.” Carlisle, a vegetarian, turned to Campus
Pantry, which started in 2012, to help supply her with the foods necessary to get by. Two times a month on a Friday, an average of 30-50 students and staff come to the pantry distribution to collect food they need, such as canned vegetables, soups and other nonperishables. As long as they have a CatCard, attendees can collect a certain amount of food each visit. “When I first started coming here it was to stock up on foods I didn’t have, but now I literally have to come here to get the food I need in order to survive,” Carlisle said, “which is kind of unfortunate because I’ve never thought of myself as being of a lower socioeconomic status, but it’s definitely turned out to be that way.” Michelle Sun, the adviser for Campus Pantry and a graduate community director for Residence Life, has worked with students who have gone days without a meal and rely on campus events with free food to sustain themselves. “The current stereotype of college and attending a university is that it’s this big privilege for students and no one really thinks about the everyday living that has to go into a student getting their education,” Sun said. “Students are having to make decisions on, ‘Am I going to buy my books for this month or pay my rent at the first of the month, or am I going to use that money to buy groceries and eat on a regular basis?’” Sun said she hopes to continue combating food insecurity through Campus Pantry. “Everyone comes with different privileges and resources at their disposal,” Sun said, “but if you’re coming to college and you’re not able to eat on a regular basis, then that puts you at such a disadvantage to everyone else in your classroom to perform well and be successful.” Before Sara Adams*, a chemistry junior, came to the final Campus Pantry food distribution of the semester on Friday, she only had a few cans left in her stockpile and wasn’t sure what she would do next. Adams didn’t even have a can opener to open the few items she did have. “I didn’t know how I was going to get food this week,” Adams said. “[Campus Pantry] just went above and beyond what I could have expected. This is the most amazing thing.” *Names changed by request of the students
galleries, Poster said. The event space in Old Main will be a public space for the UA community to use, said Melinda Burke, president of the UA Alumni Association . “As the Alumni Association president, one of my challenges is to keep that room filled,” Burke said. “It will be a venue and a space for the community.” UA President Ann Weaver Hart will move into her office on the second floor of Old Main before August 15, Mackey said. While details of Old Main’s security cannot be discussed, Mackey said an extensive camera system will be in place to ensure Hart’s security, as well as the security of museum displays. Hart and the UA administration are interested in making Old Main not just the literal center of the UA campus, but also a programming center for the UA, Poster said. “This is where it’s all going to happen,” Poster said. “It’s going to be back to being the most important place on campus.”

Poster said as he was working on Old Main, his first thoughts went to the thoughts and purpose of Old Main’s original architect. “We’re building a 21st-century university inside a 19th-century structure,” Poster said. “We’ve designed it in such a way that you will always know what’s old and what’s new.” Several areas of the building are undergoing major changes in the renovation. The second floor has been stripped down to its original structure and refurbished. The white porch on the second floor of Old Main is being entirely replaced, and a black railing has been placed behind it, Poster said. The porch provided protection for the building over the years, and because of that, the windows in Old Main are all original and in near-perfect condition. The porch took a beating from the elements, and

University experience not at all universal BY BRITTANY RUDOLPH The Daily Wildcat
f you’re a freshman who’s had a difficult first year here at the UA, take it from me: You’re not alone, and it gets better. My freshman year was not the “college experience” I always thought I’d have. So many people talk about college like it’s some intangible entity, more of an impractical ideal than an environment in which you spend four years of your life. The “college experience” is not viewed by most as the subjective, unique experience it really is, but as an objective time in which every student has to meet certain expectations. We’re supposed to instantly make friends who will always be there for us, friends who will be in our weddings, throw us baby showers and affectionately embrace us while saying, “Remember when…” However, reality is a bit different. Currently the UA’s full-time freshman retention rate is approximately 78 to 80 percent. A fifth of freshmen don’t return for their sophomore year. Personally, I think the idea of the “college experience” is at fault for some of these students not returning. This vague, grandiose concept only sets students up for disappointment. For starters, the experience is supposed to take place strictly in a dorm setting. While I’ve enjoyed living in residence halls, the dorm environment isn’t right for everyone. Living in close quarters with your peers can help you learn about campus and make friends. However, it can also be socially overwhelming for some and financially burdensome for others. You shouldn’t feel that you’ve automatically failed college if you prefer to live in an apartment or at home. Regardless of living arrangements, our culture underestimates how truly difficult fitting in can be. We’re taught that college is when we develop our passions, define the rest of our lives and have a healthy amount of “Animal House”-esque fun at the same time. As a result, when a first-year student struggles in the beginning, they may feel like an outsider. I remember thinking, “Everyone else has a great time in college? What’s wrong with me?” If you’re a freshman who feels similarly, know that you aren’t alone and you don’t have to give up. Contrary to the images portrayed by most movies and television shows, adjusting to college, like anything else in life, takes time. The message that college is a universally glamorous and easy experience is wrong. The “college experience” is more of a learning process than anything else. Finding your niche in one or two semesters is a tall order, and having to search around a little is completely normal. Struggling to fit in can be unpleasant, regardless of the situation, but the difficulty is magnified by the pressure to have a memorable, wonderful college experience all the time. As a result, having a hard time in college ceases to simply feel difficult, and starts to feel like a crushing disappointment. High expectations can make a student adjusting to college feel they are different, and therefore inferior to everyone else. The truth is that they’re probably completely normal. True self-discovery and progress happens amidst obstacles, and having a difficult freshman year is not necessarily indicative of how the years to come will be. At the end of the day, college is no different than any other part of our lives. It won’t be perfect, nor should we expect it to be. For the fifth of freshmen who may be planning not to return to the UA next year, I suggest you reconsider. If giving college a try for one more semester is at all financially or personally feasible, it is worth a shot. We have to remember that we are individuals, and that we all adjust at our own rates. If your freshman year hasn’t lined up with your popular, but probably unrealistic, expectations for college, don’t think you are some sort of anomaly. In fact, the real college experience should be defined by our differences. College gives us the freedom to make our own choices, and we can start by not being so hard on ourselves.

Hang whitewashing out to dry They’re more likely to identify with the personal struggles of the protagonist. In an interview with Vanity Fair, actress Anika Noni Rose the voice of Princess Tiana in Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog ” voiced a similar sentiment about what happens when black authors approach their editors with stories that have black protagonists. “And why can’t you expand yourself so you relate to the humanity of a character,” she asked, “as opposed to the color of what they are?” What accounts for the fact that most popular young adult novels feature supernatural creatures or other fantasy creations? Certainly not the fact that white werewolves are more popular than black ones, because that’s truly ridiculous. To escape being blamed themselves, publishing companies place the blame for underrepresenting people of color on a lack of demand or empathy from readers. The publishers are the ones who perpetuate the system by limiting the market to mostly white-centric novels, and not because readers are demanding only white characters. While it’s unclear how deeply the trend of whitewashing extends into more adult novels, the current situation reinforces a system of power and oppression through books marketed to children and young adults who are just developing their sense of self and awareness of the world. A lack of racially diverse protagonists systematically reenforces the conception that a hero can’t be any race other than white. Publishing companies evade blame to save face, when what they should be doing is fixing the problem by adding more diversity to characters in young adult literature.

The Daily Wildcat printed a great article THE DAY BEFORE THIS ONE that discussed the history and the different ways students are working to bring awareness to the misconstrued view of what Cinco de Mayo is. Definitely lost all credibility with this one! Obviously the journalists and editors are not on the same page and don’t understand how to write or advertise an event no one cares about without making people literally “Shake Their Heads” on how ignorant it is!

You’re not printing news you’re printing ignorance!!! This is ridiculous, I’m not sure who’s more of a fool, this “journalist” or this publication. Can’t wait to share this so I can shed some light on the racist, ignorant articles that Arizona Daily Wildcats put out. Cinco de Mayo is also known as The Battle of Puebla, if you’re not celebrating that then you’re not celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Go ahead and have an Agave Fest but don’t for a second think that you’re celebrating “Mexico” most tequila companies (and beers for that matter) are owned by U.S. companies. Cinco de Mayo and this agave fest are two different things entirely. Please treat them as such. — Menua

remind pedestrians and bicyclists they do NOT always have the right-of-way! It never fails that those who are jogging/walking in the area near the Rec Center and [Sixth Street Parking Garage] feel they do not have to stop for cars. I have almost been rear ended numerous times because they don’t yield to traffic and I have to slam on the brakes. There are many places in this are where there are no stop signs and people just walk out in front of cars with no regard. The first step in safety is to know the rules yourself. People, read the rules!! AZ Statute 28-793: Crossing at other than crosswalk A. “A pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles on the roadway.” — Anonymous I don’t know how you’d keep track of compliance, but I suggest a mandatory bike riding safety course for all student bikers. As a pedestrian, I’m less afraid of drivers than I am of idiot bikers riding on sidewalks or refusing to yield at crosswalks. The other day I was driving on Second [Street] trying to turn RIGHT onto Park
[Avenue], when a biker got on the bike lane on my right side and used it turn LEFT while I was halfway through my turn. I didn’t hit him but I kind of wish I had bumped him a little to teach him a basic traffic lesson. — fsfsfsfsfs2 From “Bucket list for graduating seniors” (by Camille Carlin, May 2) I applaud the Arizona Daily Wildcat staff for developing a “Bucket List” of experiences unique to the University of Arizona. As the Dean of Students, I would be remiss if I did not elucidate that participating in items 1, 2 and 3 would be violations of the Student Code of Conduct and possibly Arizona state statutes. I would hate for any student’s graduation to be delayed due to engaging in silly stunts. There are plenty of other things to do on campus, including dining at Oy Vey Cafe, checking out the turtle pond, the Mirror Lab or one of the cultural centers on campus. Congratulations graduates! I look forward to seeing you at commencement! — Kendal Washington White, dean of students and assistant vice president of Student Affairs

POLICE BEAT BY ADRIANA ESPINOSA The Daily Wildcat
A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for a minor in possession of alcohol on April 25 around 2 a.m. A University of Arizona Police Department officer stopped when he saw a student walking at the intersection of Cherry Avenue and First Street. The student was walking in circles, which caused a delay in traffic. The officer observed the student for a minute and saw him attempt to get into a vehicle that wasn’t his as if trying to hail a cab. The car drove off immediately. The student then stood in the middle of the crosswalk, stopping traffic for 15 seconds. The officer approached the student and noticed that he was swaying, and could smell a very strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath. The officer asked him if he felt he needed medical attention and he said he was fine. The student told the officer that he has been drinking at Delta Tau Delta and was now looking for his friend. The student could not remember where his friend lived or where he was supposed to meet her. The officer asked how old the man was and he said he was 20. The officer then asked to see some identification. The student pulled his Arizona drivers license out of his left pocket, looked at it, then put it in his right pocket and told the officer he didn’t have any identification on him. The officer then told the student that he saw it in his hand, and the student gave the officer the license. The student apologized and said he had no idea what he was doing and just wanted to go home. The officer reminded him that the legal drinking age was 21, and told him he needed to find a sober driver to take him home because he could not disrupt traffic. The student then called a friend to come pick him up. The student was diverted for a minor in possession of alcohol.

UW rains on UA’s parade BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat
Home field advantage takes on a different meaning in the northwest. No. 9 Arizona continued its road woes by losing two of three at No. 11 Washington in Seattle. After blowing a 6-3 lead on Friday to the Huskies (30-13, 10-9 Pac-12) to eventually lose 11-7 , Arizona (3912, 12-7 Pac-12) was forced to play a doubleheader Sunday due to Saturday’s game being rescheduled because of rain . However, the rain continued through Sunday and delayed the first pitch of the first game, which was originally scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. for the doubleheader. After the tarp was removed from the infield, the first game began at 11 a.m. The rescheduling and delay might have been a factor, as the Wildcats’ bats came out flat and Arizona starting pitcher Kenzie Fowler (7-6) gave up three earned runs in 2.0 innings pitched . The three runs would be enough, as Arizona only recorded one hit in the first game. But for insurance, Washington ended the game with eight runs and runruled Arizona in five innings. It was only the second time this season the Wildcats have lost by the mercy rule. Huskies’ starting pitcher Bryana Walker (17-8 ) silenced the Wildcats’ bats by being efficient. Walker pitched all five innings of the first game and only threw 55 pitches. When Arizona’s Hallie Wilson singled in the fourth inning to break up Walker’s perfect game, she ended up being the only Wildcat batter to reach

Wildcats set records in split with AZ rivals BY JAMES KELLEY
The Daily Wildcat
Arizona men’s and No. 11 women’s track and field teams went 3-1 against their in-state rivals and set a series of school and personal records on Saturday. The No. 11 UA women beat ASU 106.5-91.5 and NAU 124-65. The Arizona men lost to the Sun Devils 104.5 to 95.5 but beat the Lumberjacks 120.5-62.5 Senior Nick Ross broke the school record in the high jump competition with a leap of 7-6.5 (2.30m). The record had been held since 1980 by James Frazier, who has also held the Roy P. Drachman Stadium record since 1981. Ross’ jump is No. 1 in the
country and No. 5 in the world the men’s long jump with a mark this year. He said in a press release of 24-9 (7.54m, 0.0 wind), the that it was a “big relief” to break second best in his career. Ross was second. the school record. Ross did, however, win the “It’s a big weight off my triple-jump shoulders; I’ve competition with been working so a season-best leap hard and training It’s a big of 51-1.75 (15.59m, so hard,” Ross weight off of 0.0 wind).

inning at home will always be easier than winning on the road, but that doesn’t give any team an excuse to play poorly when away from home. The No. 9 Arizona softball team has struggled to win games on the road in a competitive Pac-12 Conference and has played to a 7-8 record on the road this season. If Arizona head coach Mike Candrea and his squad expect to make a deep postseason run, they need to improve on their road game. There are really two ways to look at this: either the road record is deceiving because of the teams Arizona has lost to, or it just can’t win away from Hillenbrand Stadium. I think the former is more accurate. It’s no secret that the Pac-12 has several extremely talented softball teams and Arizona (40-11, 13-8 Pac12) is one of the five Pac-12 teams in the top 10 nationally. The Wildcats have played conference road series against UCLA, ASU, California and Washington. Three of those four teams (UCLA, ASU and Washington) are ranked in the top 15 and have fantastic pitching staffs. Arizona lost all three games to UCLA by a combined 11-4 score and really could not get its offense going against a UCLA pitching staff that has a team ERA of 1.73. Arizona’s next conference road series was against an ASU team that leads the conference in team ERA at 1.64 and the Wildcats lost two of three to the Sun Devils. If not for a six-run performance in the final game of the series, the offensive stats would have looked much worse. After winning two of three against Cal, the Wildcats traveled to Washington to take on the Huskies this past weekend. Arizona lost two of three games to Washington and again struggled to score runs against a solid pitching staff. Candrea said before the Washington series that he would find out a lot about his team over the three games. However, I’m not quite sure how much Candrea learned from this past weekend.

While they were swept, Wildcats were close BY Evan Rosenfeld The Daily Wildcat
rizona baseball saw countless opportunities come and go during last weekend’s series against No. 10 Oregon. Arizona showed that it could be competitive against one of the top teams in the nation and give itself a fighting chance. Although the Wildcats suffered a three-game sweep and have now lost eight of their last nine games, they have not played bad baseball. Arizona has fallen into a habit of playing good, effective baseball for most of the game, but faltering during one or two innings. When the Wildcats’ opponents exploit those weak innings, they begin to unravel and ultimately lose the game. Saturday’s game offered a prime example of this. Despite the fact that Arizona squandered a four-run lead and Oregon’s offense surged back to secure a 7-6 extra innings victory; the Wildcats showed that they could match up to one of the conference’s top teams and threaten to beat a team who, on paper, was expected to be far superior. Arizona jumped out to an early lead in the first inning after sophomore centerfielder Scott Kingery singled home sophomore shortstop Kevin Newman. Oregon hastily responded, and over the next four innings pushed two runs across the plate and held a 2-1 lead after five innings of play. After the Ducks scored the goahead run in the bottom of the fifth, the Wildcats retaliated with a fourrun top of the sixth to steal the lead back from Oregon. With runners on first and second, freshman infielder Willie Calhoun doubled to right field to score Newman. Junior left fielder Tyler Krause followed with a single to left, scoring junior second baseman Trent Gilbert. Freshman utility player Bobby Dalbec contributed with an RBI single and junior catcher Riley Moore followed with an RBI sacrifice bunt, reaching on a fielder’s choice. During the next inning, Arizona tacked on another run, bolstering its lead to 6-2. Oregon, however, would not be silenced and immediately sprang back to life in the bottom of the seventh, tying the game with a two-RBI triple followed by a two-RBI home run. Both teams failed to score in the final two frames and the Wildcats were given another opportunity to push across a run in the top of the 10th inning. After Dalbec struck out swinging to start the frame, Moore singled to center field. Sophomore third baseman Cody Ramer

Reserve big man calls it quits BY James Kelley The Daily Wildcat
The UA announced over the weekend that Arizona men’s basketball player Zach Peters will retire due to injuries. Peters, who played one season at Arizona after transferring from Kansas, played in 11 games in the 2013-14 season, playing 31 minutes, grabbing four rebounds and scoring zero points. “I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my basketball career,” Peters said in a press release. “I especially want to thank my family, as well as the medical staff, coaching staff and my teammates at the University of Arizona for their support over the course of a trying year.” Peters will remain on scholarship and a student at the UA, which filed a medical exemption for him. Peters’ scholarship will not count against Arizona’s scholarship limit if the NCAA approves the exemption. “You never want to see anyone’s athletic career cut short by injury, especially a person of Zach’s character,” head coach Sean Miller said in a press release. “That being said, this is a decision made with an eye toward Zach’s bright and productive future. He has nothing but our full support as he begins
his next chapter.” Peters intends to pursue a business degree. The UA did not specify what the injury was, but Peters transferred to Arizona from Kansas after spending his first season at KU. Before coming to Arizona, Peters suffered a series of concussions and a shoulder injury. “As advised by many medical professionals, this is the best course of action to ensure myself a safe and healthy future,” Peters said. “I’m excited to remain a student and pursue a degree at the University of Arizona.” In September, the NCAA declared Peters eligible to play in 2013-14, so he was not required to sit out a season like most transfers. Peters did not play in any games for the Jayhawks. Peters is the fourth scholarship player the Wildcats have lost since the season ended. Back-up guard Jordin Mayes’ eligibility ran out, while forward Aaron Gordon and guard Nick Johnson left early for the NBA draft. Walk-on forward Eric Conklin is set to transfer. The Wildcats are adding four freshmen and a junior college transfer, which is a top 10 recruiting class.

The rest of the batting order was not able to get on base and Arizona stranded all the runners. Defensively for Arizona, sophomore Tyger Talley, sophomore Cody Moffett and freshman Bobby Dalbec pitched. In the bottom of the eighth inning Dalbec allowed a homer from junior Shaun Chase, giving the Ducks (34-13, 13-8) the 5-0 lead. In the final inning, junior Tyler Krause hit his fourth double of the season to try to get a rally started for Arizona. Oregon lost its shutout when Arizona was able to score one run before the game ended. On Saturday, freshman Austin Grebeck hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Ducks the 7-6 victory. Dalbec took the loss for Arizona after allowing six hits and a walk in 2.1 innings. Oregon was trailing 6-2 in the bottom of the seventh due to Arizona starting

pitcher sophomore Cody Hamlin’s performance on the mound. Hamlin had only allowed two runs on five hits when the seventh inning began. Hamlin struck out the two batters to make the first two outs of the inning, but the inning quickly turned when senior Tyler Baumgartner reached base on an infield single. The game made a quick turnaround when junior Steven Packed hit a two-run home run to tie the game. Senior pitcher James Farris took the 6-1 loss for Arizona on Friday. Farris gave up four runs on six hits in 6.1 innings. Farris also struck out eight batters and walked one. This season the senior has received five runs of support from the offense in the last 39.1 innings that he has pitched. Arizona only has two home series left and will return to host Stanford Friday through Sunday.

If anything, he learned that his team was inconsistent this weekend and might have won the series had his pitching staff performed better. There also is an underlying theme throughout these road defeats that has to frustrate Candrea: the Wildcats’ inability to match the offense of their opponent. In those nine games, Arizona was outscored 41-21 and went 2-7. Going forward, the Wildcats need to change their offensive approach against quality pitchers to ensure they have a deep run in the NCAA Championships. The reasoning behind that is that the further the team advances in postseason play, the more talented the teams and pitchers will be. Of course, that’s easier said than done. A few options could be changing Arizona’s approach at the plate, working on situational hitting or even spending more time in the film room. Regardless of what Candrea and his staff do, it has to be quick because the No. 1 Oregon Ducks come to Hillenbrand Stadium this upcoming weekend for a three-game series.

The 4x100-meter team, senior Tamara Pridgett, senior Shapri Romero, sophomore Traci-Lynn Hicks and senior Germe Poston finished second with a time of 44.27. However, that broke the school record they had set on April 12. The women’s 4x400-meter relay team — sophomore Nnenya Hailey, freshman Jasper Gray, Pridgett and Romero — also took second but ran a season-best time of 3:37.18. “That was an exciting race for myself and the group,” Romero said in a press release. “Tamara had a really good leg out of the hole. … We had a good exchange and then my exchange with Traci wasn’t bad. The handoff from Traci to Germe wasn’t the best, but we still got a school record, so as soon as we tune those up we’ll be ready.” Romero won the women’s 400-meter race with a personal record time of 51.96, the second best in school history and in the Pac-12 this year. “Breaking 52 seconds in the 400 meters felt so good,” Romero said. “We have been working for this for so long, I know I am a 51-second runner, and it just felt good from the beginning.” Poston won the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.56 (0.0 wind).

Once again in the rain, this time Arizona hung on to a lead. Rodriguez’s third-inning two-run homerun were the only runs scored in the second game and ended up making the difference, as Wildcats’ starting pitcher Estela Piñon (15-5) went the distance and only allowed two hits on the day . Though she walked five Washington batters through the 7.0 innings, Piñon did not give up a hit until the sixth inning . The 2-0 win in the second game of the doubleheader prevented the Wildcats from being swept.

doyouwant... answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships The term ‘hooking up’ began commonly appearing in the early to mid-1980s.
How has hooking up changed the college dating scene?
A. Great question! Courtship and dating customs typically change with the times and the advent of what the media likes to call ‘hookup culture’ is now closely associated with the college lifestyle. But don’t be fooled – while the term might be a relatively new one, hooking up is not. What is hooking up anyway? Is hooking up kissing? Does it include hands under shirt, oral sex, or penetrative sex? Or is it a combination of all of the above? While there is no single definition of what hooking up is, it’s generally described as sexual encounters that fall outside the bounds of a formal romantic relationship. Facebook, texting, and apps that allow instant messaging have made it easier for students to interact with each other virtually. That makes meeting someone today more casual and spontaneous than ever before – with a smartphone, it’s easy to get on the infamous Tindr app and find someone to meet within hours. A lot of articles offer opinions on how ‘pervasive hook-up culture’ has ruined the dating scene for college students, but has it? A recent study by Bogle and Monte found that while students thought their peers were hooking up 7 times per semester, the results showed that the norm was 5 to 7 hookups
over the course of their entire college career. Here at the UA, the percentage of students who reported having any type of sex has remained relatively steady over the last decade. According to the Health and Wellness Survey, 64% of students reported that they had vaginal or anal intercourse within the school year, compared to 63% in 2003. The percentage of students who have had penetrative sex with only 1 or 2 partners in the past school year has also remained largely unchanged over time. In fact, many people graduate from the UA having no or minimal sexual experience altogether. It may be that the perception of how much casual sex students are having isn’t the same as the reality. Technology has changed the way people meet but we haven’t been able to conclusively say more people are having sex. Whether you’re looking to be as free and unattached for as long as possible or searching for a lasting relationship while in college, there’s hope! At the end of the day, ‘hooking up’ or ‘dating’ is a personal choice and you should feel free to choose your own way. Whatever you choose, be sure to communicate your expectations about the relationship with your partner(s) so that you are going into it with your eyes wide open.

How to Survive The official
Daily Wildcat study playlist BY CHRISTIANNA SILVA The Daily Wildcat
Studying for finals can be a boring, grueling affair. After a few hours of listening to the silence in the library, most people are ready for a change of pace. Whether you like silence when you study or bass shaking the windows of your room, listening to some beats while you edit a paper might have some positive effects. Here are some of the best study songs to plug in to:
1. “Briony” by Dario Marianelli and Benjamin Wallfisch The typewriter clicking in the beginning of this track can get your fingers moving on your own keyboard.
2. “Married Life” by Michael Giancchino If you are studying for a particularly frustrating final and really don’t have time to cry right now, you might want to skip this emotional song from Disney-Pixar’s “Up.”
3. “Syrup” by Stwo Studying music is usually more helpful without lyrics, which puts hiphop lovers in a difficult place. Thankfully, Stwo has graced us with “Syrup,” the perfect studying song for any hip-hop lover. MARK FLORES/THE DAILY WILDCAT

4. “For You” by Coldplay While most people champion instrumental songs for studying, “For You” by Coldplay is an easy exception to the rule.
5. “Song For You” by Alexi Murdoch Another exception to the instrument-only study playlist many people prefer is Alexi Murdoch’s “Song For You.” This British musician and songwriter will lull you into a deep studying coma.
6. “Basic Space” by The xx When The xx sings of suffering shipwrecks right from the start, most of us students cramming at the last minute can relate.
7. “Breezeblocks” by Alt-J If you aren’t listening to Alt-J, are you really studying?
8. “Air” by Johann Sebastian Bach By this time, you may have had a little too much fun with the studying music. Time to buckle down.
9. “Diamonds” by Ben Howard At this point of the night of studying, the only smooth thing is Ben Howard’s silky vocals. You deserve this.
10. “Morning Dew” by Grateful Dead For those of us with “Dead heads” for parents, the Grateful Dead feels like home. “Morning Dew” is my personal favorite song to study to.
11. “The Rains of Castamere” by L’Orchestra Cinematique Many people can’t watch TV while they study, but “The Rains of Castamere” can at least make us feel like “Game of Thrones” is flashing on the laptop screen instead of the 11-page review for the gen-ed course that was supposed to be an easy A.
12. “Sticks and Stones” by Jonsi By now, you’ve been studying for over an hour. It’s time to celebrate with a song like “Sticks and Stones” by Jonsi. It feels like Jonsi is actually congratulating you on being the smartest student at the UA.
