Home.” “Nervous is an understatement,” said Justine Willman about dropping her daughter off for her first year of college. As incoming freshman Maria Arey arranged photos of her friends and pets onto her shelves and unpacked her belongings in her new room in Yavapai Residence Hall, she spoke about missing the comforts of home such as talking face-to-face with her mother. “It was hard because I had to move out of the home I had lived in for 17 years,” said incoming freshman Maria Arey. “But it was also like I’m changing up my whole environment.”

Arey said easier access to classes and a chance to better manage her time are only a few of the benefits of leaving what is familiar to her at home. Lindsey Willman also expressed concern about leaving behind the familiarity of home. “I’m feeling a little excited but also nervous. I have never lived with anyone except for my parents,” Willman said. “It will be very

The off-campus student housing market continues to grow in Tucson as three more complexes are set to open next year. Next, built by Campus Acquisitions; Hub at Tucson, built by Core Campus; and The Junction at Iron Horse, built by Royal Properties, will house UA students by summer 2014. Three new off-campus student-housing complexes — The Retreat, Level and The Cadence — ­opened this summer. Michael Yeagle, senior vice president of Campus Acquisitions, said Next and Hub at Tucson will create a destination, making the area just west of the university a new student neighborhood. “I think [the new housing complexes] will be great for this area,” Yeagle said. “I think that with as many students that go to the University of Arizona and being immediately across the street from school this will

Sun Link promotes streetcar safety campaign BY MAGGIE DRIVER The Daily Wildcat

A campaign to educate Tucson citizens on ways to be safe around the streetcar tracks begins this week. To bring attention to community safety, Sun Link plans to advertise the safety campaign through various outlets around Tucson. Outreach efforts will include a 30-second public service announcement, brochures, and social media announcements, according to Joan Beckim, public outreach project manager for Sun Link. “The education materials will target bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and people with disabilities so that it will be a universal, all-inclusive awareness

campaign that educates all people traveling in all different ways,” said Bill Davidson, manager of public information and marketing for Parking and Transportation Services. The Tucson Modern Streetcar will be able to serve a population of around 100,000 people who live and work within the nearly fourmile alignment tracks, according to Shellie Ginn, program manager for the Tucson Modern Streetcar. With so many potential riders, the education campaign must try to reach the entire community and take advantage of social media including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, Ginn said. To gain student ridership, the UA is partnering with Sun Link.

ASUA president talks fall semester goals BY RACHEL MCCLUSKEY The Daily Wildcat

Each year the Associated Students of the University of Arizona serves as the centralized student voice for approximately 30,000 undergraduate students at the UA. The group helps fund and support organizations such as ZonaZoo, Safe Ride, and Spring Fling. ASUA President Morgan Abraham said he is working to increase student engagement to help better advocate on behalf of the student body.


CLUBS AT THE UA registered for the Student Involvement Fair through Danielle Novelly, the ASUA executive vice president and political science senior. ASUA organized the fair, which will take place Tuesday.

UA Mall fair aims to recruit students for club membership

Issues to look out for

A debate regarding the UA’s status as a tobacco-free campus is scheduled for this year. “I’m trying to reach out to students — kind of see what they feel,” Abraham said. “It’s a very black and white issue for students, so we are trying to talk to as many students as possible to get to the bottom of it.” Students should also keep an eye on a possible reduction in tuition for DREAMers. DREAMers are currently protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Initiative, a temporary program that allows them to stay and work or attend school in the United States. Morgan also said he is seeking student input regarding the construction of new buildings for the UA so ASUA can represent the students at Arizona Board of Regents meetings.


From sports organizations and cultural clubs to groups that help the community and professional fraternities and sororities, 150 booths and tables will line the UA Mall from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Tuesday. The fair was organized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership. “In my opinion, the number one way to succeed at this school is to be involved with something,” said Morgan Abraham, ASUA president. “There’s so many ways to get involved. That’s one of the benefits of going to such a large university … Sometimes, at such a large university, it’s easy to get lost, and even though there are so many things to do, it’s tough to find those things, and I think the idea with the fair is to show the students what’s out there.” Clubs will be sectioned together on the Mall by interest, Abraham

New and noteworthy

The ASUA Appropriations Board has a larger budget this year, according to Issac Ortega, ASUA treasurer. The budget is a little more than $200,000, which will fund trips, T-shirts or conferences. “This is the most [money] we have ever had,” Ortega said. “Hopefully, they are changing the bylaws so we can get clubs more T-shirts or plane tickets.” Danielle Novelly, ASUA executive vice president, said she wants to make sure ASUA allocates all of the money. “I think the clubs are doing great things, and we were able to see a lot of great things happen through the clubs for our university in this past year,” Novelly said. “This will just be able to keep that going.” ASUA has hired a staff who will focus specifically on reaching out to students and getting their individual opinions, Abraham said. ASUA plans to conduct student surveys and polls, he added. “We all have our own opinions, and I think, in the past, ASUA has relied on the people within ASUA to formulate the opinions,” Abraham said. “I didn’t get elected because of my opinions or my political affiliations. I got elected to represent students.”

What students should know

Although the budget for ASUA is $1.7 million, ASUA only gets to allocate about $600,000 of that

money, Abraham explained. The Student Service Fee Advisory Board allocates money to specific programs, such as Safe Ride, Abraham added. The executive team looks at budgets from the past five years to determine how much services and programs are given. The executive team consists of Abraham, Novelly, Ortega and Administrative Vice President Amanda Lester. “It’s kind of scary at first because, you know, I’ve never handled that much money before,” Ortega said. “It’s pretty straightforward [allocating the money]. There’s a lot of past precedent that’s set.” At the end of every year, directors fill out a survey regarding the budget and monetary funding, and the executive team takes this into account, along with student feedback, to try to accommodate everyone in the office, Abraham explained. “We want to make sure that everyone knows exactly where the money is going,” Abraham said, “And if anyone has a problem with it, [they can] come find me. We don’t want

added. “I love meeting new people, especially people with interests that I have,” Abraham said. “I think that’s what’s cool about the Student Involvement Fair and different clubs — you’re surrounding yourself with people who kind of think like you, and that’s always fun.” Trenton Cherco, an engineering management junior and president of TriCats, has attended the Student Involvement Fair the past two years and said that he is looking forward to the opportunity to expand TriCats to new students. TriCats is a student recreational sports clubs on campus that focuses on training for triathlons and living active lives. “I think it’s good, especially for freshmen, just so they have something to do besides class,” Cherco said. “It’s a great way to meet friends and meet new people. I get to meet people I normally wouldn’t have met just through class and experience things I wouldn’t have on my own.” —­­­­Follow­ her at ShannonH_

Hart, ASA top summer stories The UA Campus Arboretum began a mesquite harvesting project this summer by installing nets onto the trunks of mesquite trees on campus to harvest seed pods, which will be used to make flour. UA Dining Services will use the flour in several dishes on campus. The Office of Sustainability will work with Linking Edible Arizona Forests, to harvest citrus and olives later in the year.


1. Hart’s first year in Tucson

Since coming to the UA a year ago, UA President Ann Weaver Hart has impressed administrators and government and business leaders in the state. In her first year as UA president, Hart has gotten to know leaders in Arizona, collaborated with faculty and administrators to work on a new academic plan and is now working on executing the plan. Hart is also working with administrators to create a budget that will support the academic plan.


World first: University of Arizona Medical Center surgeons use robotic technology to implant HVAD

Two surgeons at the University of Arizona Medical Center performed the world’s first robotic implantation of a ventricular assist device. Dr. Zain Khalpey and Dr. Robert Poston used robotic instrumentation to implant the HeartWare Ventricular Assist Device on four patients as of the end of July. The golf ball-sized device circulates the blood from the left ventricle, the largest chamber of the heart, and into the aorta, the artery that supplies blood to most of the body.

2. Student loan interest rates almost double

As the deadline approached for Congress to stop student loan interest rates from doubling, student leaders across the nation, among them Morgan Abraham, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, signed a letter asking Congress to seek a long-term solution. With Congress failing to reach a deal by the end of June, interest rates doubled for new subsidized federal Stafford loans. Congress was able to reach a deal by the end of July in which student loan interest rates will be determined based on the financial market, meaning the rates will increase as the economy improves. In the 2013-14 school year, the interest rate is 3.86 for undergraduates and 5.41 for graduate students.

6. UA, Arizona State University rank among top 100 universities

The UA was ranked one of the top universities in the world in a list compiled by the Center for World University Rankings. The center took into account factors such as quality of education, excellence of faculty, alumni employment and quality of research. The UA ranked 78 on the list, following closely behind ASU, which ranked 73.

UA should change traditional orientation Nick havey The Daily Wildcat


s another school year begins, incoming students are bombarded by the hundreds of opportunities to get involved on campus through joining clubs, playing intramural sports and Greek life. The one to two-day bore fest we call New Student Orientation is typically an incoming student’s first exposure to these opportunities. For students who feel orientation might be too overwhelming, Bear Down Camp is a four-day program that fully immerses new students in the UA experience more than the traditional orientation held on campus. All camp counselors, or Gatos, are past participants. “The counselors were incredibly spirited and kindhearted, and they truly cared for their campers,” said former camper Tiffany Feller. She added that BDC “is an amazing way to meet people before school even started.” Created in 1997 by Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senator Summer Katzenbach, the mission of BDC is to “provide a supplemental and integrative introduction to the University of Arizona for incoming freshmen students in order to improve their connection, retention and overall success.” A 2006 study in the Journal for Research in Higher Education cites that students involved in one or more activities on campus were more likely to continue at their university than uninvolved students, and BDC has demonstrated its ability to help students do just that. In a survey conducted by the camp, it was found that 99 percent of campers became involved in other programs on campus after participating. Traditional new student orientation does the bare minimum to situate students on campus and lacks the practical information freshmen actually want to know. BDC provides students the opportunity to receive honest answers to questions about alcohol, drugs and sex in college that might feel awkward to ask during orientation. With student workshops like “Tradition, spirit and history of campus” and “Wildcat Diversity,” students experience the chance to learn to be an active student section member ­while learning about campus culture. According to the same survey, more than 90 percent of students felt prepared and would recommend the program to other incoming freshmen. “It’s so beneficial to incoming freshmen. It teaches you firsthand things that you don’t get to learn at orientation. It’s the little things that upperclassmen take for granted, like making friends and getting involved. It’s an awesome solution,” said ASUA President Morgan Abraham. Instead of presenting information in lengthy and arduous lectures, BDC breaks students into smaller groups and is able to incorporate group discussions and activities to provide students with a more thorough understanding of the topics. Executive Director of BDC Chelsea Dysko reported that “100 percent [of respondents] agreed that the program helped them better understand the history and traditions of our school.” While BDC costs $120, as opposed to the free orientation, it offers meaningful information and an inside look at the heritage, traditions, and history of the UA. Traditional new student orientation explains the bare bones of the UA, while BDC presents the bare bones in a new and enticing way to excite students about becoming involved on campus and prepare campers for success. — Nick Havey is a sophomore studying pre-physiology and Spanish.

Some of these changes will be evident the minute you walk on campus: Old Main is undergoing major renovation and restoration to ensure that it remains a beacon of our Wildcat pride for many years to come. The Lowell-Stevens Football Facility in the North End Zone of Arizona Stadium will be open soon and will make game day even more exciting as you help to cheer on our Wildcats.

Police Beat BY Alison Dorf The Daily Wildcat

Not hopping fences Three UA students were reported to the Dean of Students on Thursday after they were seen exiting the Old Main construction site at approximately 12:10 a.m. A man told the University of Arizona Police Department he saw the students leaving through an opening in the perimeter fence on the north side and walking toward the UA Mall, but said they did not appear to be carrying anything. An officer located the three students who said they had not been inside the construction site but had just been hanging out in the grass on the Mall. Officers then decided to bring the man who reported the three students to the scene. The man confirmed they were the students he had seen and a woman from the group then admitted she had lied because she was nervous. She said the three of them had been bar hopping on University Boulevard and were on their way home when they noticed the fence was open. She added they wanted to see the building because it wouldn’t be open before they graduated. The officers checked the site for damage, reported the students to the Dean of Students and secured the open area in the fence with a piece of fence wire.

Doomed from the start A UA student was arrested and booked into Pima County Jail on Wednesday after the driver of a car was pulled over for not displaying a license plate at approximately 12:55 p.m. While speaking with the driver, one of the UAPD officers was informed that the passenger had a warrant out for his arrest. The second officer at the scene smelled marijuana when speaking with the passenger. The man told the officer he was carrying marijuana but that he had a medical marijuana card. The officer then asked the man to step out of the car. The man gave the officer a Ziploc bag of marijuana as well as his medical card from Oregon, which stated that he was allowed to carry 24 ounces. The officer told the man he had an active warrant for failure to comply with an original charge of criminal damage and the other officer on scene placed him under arrest. The marijuana was placed into property and evidence, and the student was booked into Pima County Jail. @arizonaunions

Petty theft A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students on Wednesday at approximately 3:45 p.m. for reportedly stealing a keychain from the UofA Bookstore. A UAPD officer spoke with a bookstore security employee who said the student was seen putting a keychain in his pocket after picking up two shirts and a pair of shorts valued at $62.59. The student paid for the clothing, but walked away with the keychain in his pocket, the employee said. Security stopped the student outside the door and asked him to empty his pockets. They found the keychain and the student said he had forgotten to pay for it and apologized. The student admitted to putting the keychain in his pocket but said he did not realize he had done so. He was diverted to the Dean of Students.

UA welcomes its most diverse class Wildcats as incoming members of the UA. “Growing up in Tucson, you hear so much about the U of A,” said Kailee Economidis, a history freshman. “Everyone in Tucson loves the U of A, so I’ve always wanted to go here.” After the ceremony there was a Convocation Celebration between McKale Center and Richard Jefferson Gym where students were taught by Wilbur, Wilma, the cheer team and the Pride of Arizona the cheers and traditions they’ll need to know for UA sporting events. “I liked that the band and the cheerleaders showed us what we do at the games and explained that a little more,” Economidis said. Students were moved back inside McKale where numerous clubs and organizations were scattered around handing out flyers and information. These clubs and organizations ranged from Sonora Student Fellowship to


At the New Student Convocation, UA President Ann Weaver Hart called upon students to innovate and apply the knowledge they learn to new settings. In Hart’s opening remarks, she mistakenly welcomed more than 9,000 freshmen and transfer students to the University of New Hampshire, where she was president from 2002 to 2006. However, many students did not notice the slip and those who did said it was a human mistake. “I know from personal experience, especially announcing in front of a huge crowd that I’ve made that mistake before,” said Andy Gonzalez, an economics senior. “It happens to everyone. Speaking in front of a large crowd is hard for anyone, whether it’s the president of the university or a student body president of the

Microsoft begins search for new CEO MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer is retiring within the next 12 months, the company announced Friday. Ballmer, 57, will retire once a successor has been chosen. “My original thoughts on timing would have had my retirement happen in the middle of our company’s transformation to a devices and services company,” Ballmer said in the news release. “We need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction.” Microsoft’s board has appointed a special committee, chaired by lead independent board member John Thompson, to choose the next CEO. The committee also includes Bill Gates, Microsoft chairman; Chuck Noski, chairman of the audit committee; and Steve Luczo, chairman of the compensation committee.

The special committee, which is working with executive recruiting firm Heidrick & Struggles International, plans to consider external as well as internal candidates, according to a news release. Ballmer, who has been CEO since 2000, has faced criticism for years about Microsoft’s stagnant stock price and its falling far behind of competitors such as Apple and Google in the fast-growing mobile market. More recently, calls for him to step down have come after the lukewarm reception to Windows 8, which launched last fall, and the abysmal sales of the Surface RT tablet, among the company’s first branded computing devices. Last year, he said the company was transitioning into a devices and services company, and earlier this year, started implementing a major company reorganization to reach that goal. In recent days, there have been rumblings

of more shareholder pressure for change. Activist investor ValueAct, for instance, which had disclosed earlier this year that it had purchased some $2 billion of Microsoft stock, had reportedly been talking with some Microsoft board members and large institutional shareholders about gaining a seat on Microsoft’s board. He said his decision was not prompted by ValueAct or other shareholders’ pressure for change. Ballmer is not on the special committee that will choose his successor. But as a member of Microsoft’s nine-member board, he will have a voice, “and I’m never shy about my opinions,” he said. “I don’t know how you would find a new CEO without getting Ballmer’s input on the company and its workings,” Thompson said in an interview Friday. Thompson said the board has developed a profile of what the ideal candidate would look like but said it would be “premature” to disclose any of it. Both Ballmer and Thompson praised the company’s current senior leadership team but declined to say if there were any leading internal candidates.

the Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority. “We promise to change your lives. We won’t do it alone, in fact you’re going to do a lot of the work, but it’s teamwork and together,” said Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Andrew Comrie. “You’re going to be some of the best educated, most exciting, most innovated and can-do people in the world when you graduate from this university.”

Miller excited about newest Amato era batch of Wildcats, returnees begins with two wins BY Megan Coghlan The Daily Wildcat

Arizona men’s basketball team’s first game on Oct. 28 may seem far away, but it’s not too early for head coach Sean Miller to have an idea of what to expect. More access to the players this summer has given him a chance to know them better and work with them directly. Summer practices have given players the opportunity to prove themselves on and off the court by taking classes and getting settled into the program. The upcoming season’s squad has some new faces. Miller said five-star Scout. com recruit Aaron Gordon has the team player attitude. “He’s really a hungry and willing learner, works hard at the game and wants to get better at all of those things that he knows he needs to,” Miller said. Gordon will face high expectations as he attempts to transition from a strictlyperimeter player to more of a three-point shooter. The incoming freshman was named a preseason AllAmerican by Sporting News, which ranked Arizona No. 5 in its preseason rankings. Miller expects that the other incoming fivestar recruit, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, will complement Gordon’s abilities. From Chester High School in Chester, Penn., he traveled the farthest of any of the incoming freshmen. Hollis-Jefferson won two AAAA state championships during his time at Chester. The 6-foot-7, 205-pound small forward has long arms and plays bigger than his actual height, Miller said. “He has physical gifts that make him a great defender,” Miller said. Gordon and HollisJefferson will be playing at more than one position,

offensively and defensively. Gordon has the capability to play as both small forward and power forward. The two could also fill in the holes left behind by recently graduated forwards Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom. “Sometimes you forget how physically strong those guys were,” Miller said. “Both Aaron and Rondae, that’s their strength as incoming freshmen — their physical abilities. Some of that loss is negated by who they are athletically and physically.” Miller said he expects the less heralded Elliott Pitts to be a big contributor this year as well. “[Pitts] is somebody that isn’t talked a lot about. I kind of like that for Elliott because to me he’s going to deliver much more than people are talking about,” Miller said. “I really believe in what he can do for this program.” The 6-foot-5 shooting guard comes from De La Salle High School’s elite program in Dublin, Calif. He is No. 93 in the 2013 ESPN 100 and is known to utilize the jump shot from all over the court. The freshmen are not the only newcomers expected to contribute. Junior transfer T.J. McConnell will play point guard after sitting out last season due to NCAA transfer rules. After being on the team for a year, he has a strong mentality to balance out the newcomers’ influence, Miller said. Junior forward Matt Korcheck is a Cochise College transfer who redshirted last year. Korcheck’s role will be to come off the bench, rebound and defend. “We don’t necessarily need Matt to be a big scorer, but we do need his physical ability,” Miller said. Miller said he is also impressed with the development of returnees. Sophomore forward

Nick Johnson goes in for a dunk against Ohio State in the 2013 NCAA men’s basketball tournament on March 28.

Brandon Ashley’s range and ability to shoot the ball has improved, Miller said. Last season Ashley shot .525 from the floor and recorded a pair of double doubles. Miller said he was also impressed with junior guard Nick Johnson. Last season he had 23 games with 10 or more points and earned an honorable mention Pac-12 All-Defensive team. Miller said he believes he is a potential all-conference

performer and is on the path to a great junior year. If there is one thing the team has worked on the most this summer, it is perimeter shooting. “I don’t think there’s a college basketball program of the 347 that have shot more basketballs than we have this summer,” Miller said. ­— Follow her at MeganCoghlan

The Arizona soccer team couldn’t have asked for a better start to the 2013 season than the one it had in the Sunshine State over the weekend. The Wildcats (2-0-0) made it anything but sunny for both Florida International and Florida Atlantic, winning both games by a combined score of 5-2. On Friday night, Arizona kicked off the Tony Amato era with a 4-2 victory over Florida International in Miami. The Wildcats dominated possession throughout most of the game, and its offense came alive in the second half when it scored three goals. Redshirt freshman forward Kaitlyn Lopez got the first half ’s only goal and began the Wildcats’ scoring early with a sixth minute finish that gave Arizona a 1-0 lead going into halftime. A costly mistake from the Panthers’ defense in giving the ball away near their own penalty box put Arizona up 2-0 when junior forward Alexandra Doller pushed it past FIU goalkeeper Vanessa Plasencia in the 54th minute. Plasencia, a freshman making her first career start, was on call all night and finished with 13 saves. Doller would strike again just five minutes later when she put away a rebound shot that appeared to glance off the post, making it 3-0 Wildcats. FIU’s offense lacked attack power until the 74th minute when the Panthers’ Crystal McNamara headed in a free kick. Any chance of a Panther comeback ended when confusion in the Panthers’ penalty box saw the Wildcats’ leading goal-scorer from last year, senior midfielder and forward Jazmin Ponce, score Arizona’s last goal of the night in the 82nd minute. Ponce’s goal was set up from a somersault flip throw-in from freshmen midfielder Jaden DeGracie that she utilized throughout the night. FIU scored the game’s final goal just seconds later when Arizona made a mistake of its own, failing to clear the ball out of its half. This led to a shot from Weinhardt that had no chance of being saved by Wildcat junior goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman, who ended the night with three saves. The Wildcats outshot the Panthers 23-9 for the game

summer recap

Wildcats endure rough summer UA icon dies, Wildcats join NCAA lawsuit, boys and girls of summer end season early, football fills police blotter and Ka’Deem’s charges dropped BY Derek Evans The Daily Wildcat

In case Arizona Athletics fell off your radar this summer, it’s time to get back on track and catch up on some of the sports news you may have missed.

Rugby suffers major loss

The Wildcats rugby team had success on the field as the Sevens went to the Collegiate Rugby Championship. Off the field, however, tragedy hit when longtime head coach Dave Sitton died from a blood clot at the age of 58 on Aug. 12. Sitton’s death was a significant loss not only for the rugby team but for the University of Arizona and the city of Tucson as a whole. He was a football and basketball broadcaster for the Wildcats for more than 20 years and ran for Congress as a Republican in 2012 to replace Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Originally from Southern California, Sitton was recruited to play baseball for UA, but after injuries he turned to rugby and became head coach in 1978. He also did work for several charity organizations in Tucson.

Football Wildcats involved in lawsuit

Arizona football season starts this Friday, and it is likely that two players have more than football on their minds. Senior linebacker Jake Fischer and senior kicker Jake Smith have joined forces with four other NCAA football players, as well as several former NCAA stars, including lead plaintiff, former UCLA men’s basketball player Ed O’Bannon. They are plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the NCAA and EA Sports, the company that produced the “NCAA Football” games. Of all the players in the lawsuit, Fischer is likely the most important to his team, as he was the Wildcats’ leader in tackles last season. This season, his number 33 is being sold by the school as the team’s new jersey. When Fischer and Smith joined the lawsuit a month ago, UA Athletic Director Greg Byrne released a statement that said the athletic department doesn’t support the lawsuit, but does support Fischer and Smith’s rights to express their opinions.

New piano UApresents’ largest-ever gift BY Jessica Schrecker The Daily Wildcat

Centennial Hall welcomed a brand new piano thanks to the largest donation in the history of UApresents made by the Margaret E. Mooney Foundation. The brand new Steinway & Sons concert grand piano arrived in July and will be used for the first time when renowned pianist Lang Lang performs on Oct. 22. Over the summer, Chuck Tennes, executive director of UApresents, along with associate professor John Milbauer from the School of Music and John Simon, Tucson Steinway Gallery owner, traveled to the Steinway & Sons Factory in New York City to choose a new concert grand piano for Centennial Hall. After becoming executive director in August 2011, Tennes made obtaining a new piano one of his top priorities. “It’s something I heard right from the beginning,” Tennes said. “The piano we had … has seen better years. Pianos, especially in an institutional setting, have a somewhat limited life.” Six months ago, Tennes received a check from the Margaret E. Mooney Foundation in Tucson to be used for the purchase of a new piano for the university’s music hall. “Mrs. Mooney was interested in the arts and we thought that this was a perfect way to remember her,” said Linda Lohse, director of the foundation. The donation funded the trip

to New York and allowed Tennes, Milbauer and Simon access to several different types of concert grand pianos. After several tests, they chose the Model D concert grand piano, a product which Simon said is valued at $142,000. Simon added that there is a method behind choosing the right piano for the right setting. “You choose one that is just going to be flexible,” he said. “You want to have a lot of character, a lot of personality — something that’s going to work for a lot of different kinds of players.” According to Simon, the Model D is the largest and most expressive of the Steinways, which would allow guest artists greater satisfaction with their performances. “It has a flawless regulation. It’s flawlessly even, in terms of the touch,” said Milbauer. “This is very beautifully weighted from bottom to top, and that’s rare, so it’s a real treat.” Steinway pianos have been a long-esteemed product in the music world. The company began in 1853 in Manhattan and has since expanded to countries all over the world. “Steinway & Sons is pretty widely recognized as the gold standard when it comes to pianos,” Tennes said. “We’re talking about carpentry, a lot of precision work, the steel frames, the strings, etcetera. All of those components are built and assembled in a very traditional factory setting.” The true test of this piano, Milbauer said, will be seen after it has been tuned and adjusted to Centennial

Hall. “It’s gone from very tightly regulated humidity in New York to a huge range of humidity in Centennial,” Milbauer added. “The pianos always freak out when you put them in a new place, so I’m curious what that piano’s going to sound like in two years, but I’m very happy with how it sounds now.”

New stadium eatery offers views, diverse menu items BY Casey Knox The Daily Wildcat

Today marks the scheduled opening of the latest addition to Arizona Stadium’s north end zone expansion, Bear Down Kitchen, which aims to see students “eating with the athletes.”

The kitchen, built through a joint effort by Arizona Student Unions and the athletics department, combines the departments’ collaborative vision of a casual eatery to be shared by student-athletes and the general public. Located on the fourth floor, the kitchen has wide glass windows, overlooking its

The former piano will be kept to provide artists with the option for the type of sound they wish to have. “It’s good to have a spare, and it’s good to have a choice,” Tennes said.

Simon said he is confident that the new Steinway will last 50 to 75 years, ultimately reducing the price per year of the piano as compared with the cost to upkeep mass-produced pianos. In addition to the stability it will provide, the new piano will grant visiting artists with something they haven’t had before — a choice.

Planning, comfortability keys to early-class outfits BY Amy Johnson The Daily Wildcat


Looking ahead: five films to catch this fall Following summer’s season of blockbusters, the end of 2013 offers a variety of indie and mainstream flicks worth watching. BY Alex Guyton

The first week of school, or “syllabus week” as it’s colloquially known, is equal parts exciting and stressful. Most students are worried about impressing their professors, but that’s the easy part: just don’t come empty-handed, bring the assigned textbooks and ask lots of questions. The trick is finding the right outfit for the first week of classes while you’re still adjusting your sleep schedule after a long, lazy summer. Now you’ll need to get creative. Your challenge is to make a proper first impression, and should you accept, you’ll need to plan accordingly.

The Daily Wildcat

“Gravity” (Oct. 4)

Create a system that works

Schedule plenty of time to rifle through your closet the night before class. “I typically will plan my outfits out the night before,” said Lindsey Conklin, a biomedical engineer junior. “Like the last 10 minutes or so before bed when you don’t have any more work, or when I can’t really fall asleep at night, then I’ll plan out my outfit.” This idea may seem obvious if your parents have been nagging you to plan ahead for years now, but it could save you enough time in the morning to make that all-important coffee run. In addition, have a go-to outfit on hand for the days you sleep in a little too late. You can create an unexpected outfit that works just by mixing more feminine pieces from your closet with edgier ones. “[For me, it’s] leggings and a U of A shirt with a vest and combat boots or my maxi skirt with my white flowing top,” said Symonne Hornaday, a psychology senior. “I like doing contradicting things in my outfits.”

Keep it simple

A maxi skirt, a short sleeved shirt and some sandals is an easy way to stay fashionable for even that 8 a.m. class.

wearing edgier shoes.

When it’s early in the morning and you’re still blurry-eyed and coffee-deprived, try to keep your outfit simple. For Zoë Webman, a visual communications junior, this means throwing on a cute dress “while keeping [her] hair natural and simple without spending too much time on it. Or go really comfy with a cute hairdo. “But I’d definitely only focus on one or the other for an early morning class so I can get as much sleep in as possible,” she added. A white V-neck and dark wash jeans can be a wellcomposed outfit when paired with an accent piece. Try an oversized gold watch or ballet flats. Transform this same outfit later in the week by throwing on a blazer, swapping the pants for a feminine skirt or

A medical engineer (Sandra Bullock) and an astronaut (George Clooney) become stranded in space after debris from a satellite crashes into their space shuttle. What’s notable is the film is stripped down to its bare elements, with only two actors on screen. This minimalism will be matched by the bleak setting, debris suspended in the endless, dark expanse of space. One of the trailers is a horrifying minute of Sandra Bullock drifting helplessly into space, and it makes for one of the most disconcerting images on a movie screen this year.

Be comfortable

Dressing to impress doesn’t necessarily mean trendy dresses and Vogue-style curled hair. “I usually just wear leggings and a top or a maxi skirt with a top,” Hornaday said. “I don’t really plan ahead. I just like being comfortable while looking semi-decent.” Dressing well might catch the eyes of your fellow classmates, but it’s your confidence that will hold their attention. Own your style, and you’ll stand out ­ even in your earliest class. this semester —

On the independent circuit, there is the much talked about “Escape from Tomorrow.” Director/writer Randy Moore and the cast accomplished the near-impossible by filming in Disneyland and Walt Disney World without the permission of the parks. The film received an incredible amount of buzz at Sundance Film Festival and was hand selected by late film critic Roger Ebert to play at his annual film festival. The film centers on a father on vacation with his family as he loses his grip on reality as the park takes on a menacing surrealism.

Michael Fassbender stars in this dark thriller as a lawyer involved in the deception, violence and moral ambiguity of drug trafficking. The intrigue with “The Counselor” isn’t so much the director Ridley Scott (“Gladiator,” “Alien”) or the all-star cast consisting of Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz and Brad Pitt, but that the script comes from acclaimed author Cormac McCarthy. McCarthy penned the novels “The Road” and “No Country for Old Men,” both of which were adapted for the screen.

We have quite a few different menu options.” He added that the current menu is quite extensive even in the restaurant’s first semester. Additionally, the restaurant will serve pizza, hamburgers and calzones and will incorporate Asian cuisine. The kitchen will serve breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday until 1:30 p.m. The restaurant will be closed to the public on game days to host prospective recruits, said Jason Tolliver, director of Arizona Student Unions. While serving as the primary eatery for athletes, Tolliver added that the student union’s idea behind adding the restaurant was also to have another accessbile eatery for all students. “We hope that students will utilize this restaurant,” he said. “Hopefully, this will help alleviate some of the lines on campus that other venues have.” Students interested in checking out the wide variety of menu

Based on the memoirs of Jordan Belfort, a crooked New York stockbroker of the 1990s. The main reason to watch is the talent involved: Leonardo DiCaprio reteams with director Martin Scorsese (“Goodfellas,” “The Departed”) with supporting actors Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”), and Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”). The kinetic trailer displays the extravagant, volatile nature of Belfort and his lifestyle, an energy that’s constantly pushed to the limit with the use of Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead.”

Director David O. Russell reteams with Christian Bale and Amy Adams from “The Fighter,” as well as Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper from “Silver Linings Playbook.” Bale, as per the usual, has undergone another severe physical transformation. This time, though, he has put on pounds via fat instead of muscle. A crime drama set in the ‘70s, the plot centers on con man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale) who has been recruited by FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper) to assist Atlas Entertainment the bureau. —Follow him at

Sun Link is also hoping to play the PSAs on the TVs in the Student Union Memorial Center in addition to presenting the campaign to various on-campus organizations, Beckim added. “The university is an important part of the project,” Davidson said. “Certainly the university campus will benefit greatly by having the streetcar project operational on campus and it’s certainly going to help students get around with the new way and I think it’s exciting.” Streetcar construction is back on schedule, Ginn said. The $196 million project is under budget and is to remain there, even with the cost of previous setbacks, Ginn added.



The next step is testing the overhead in preparation for when the vehicles arrive, according to Ginn. All of the final vehicle inspections must be conducted before the vehicles arrive in Tucson in late August to early September, Ginn added. Inspections will include testing the brakes, checking electrics, track lining and overhead safety. After this is completed, the streetcars will run in a pre-revenue service, meaning the cars will run on the tracks, but without passengers, to ensure they are in proper working condition before the public opening to riders. “[This education program] will teach the public ways for all of us to move with confidence with the new streetcar system in place,” Davidson said. “I think it’s also going to be a good way to tell the community exactly what’s happening when.” —Follow her at

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships ASU does NOT have it's very own sexually transmitted infection. Wildcats get the same STIs that Sun Devils do.


Does “Friends with Benefits” work?

A. Friends With Benefits (FWB) means different things to different people. To most UA students, an FWB is someone you know (and perhaps trust) to have sex with. No strings attached. There is no commitment and no title like “lover” or “partner.” The FWB may be more of an acquaintance than someone in your circle of friends. And, your FWB may be a secret relationship that your closest friends don’t even know about. The advantages of having an FWB are primarily sexual. You have someone to “hook up” with, but without all the time, obligation, energy, and stress that may accompany a relationship. When you have an FWB, you are free to experiment and enjoy the pleasure without most of the pain; unless one of you develops feelings and emotions – which often happens. Feelings seem to be the most likely disadvantage that may result from an FWB arrangement. One person may want a more emotionally intimate relationship. Another person may develop a liking, even love, for their sex buddy. If the feelings aren’t reciprocated, someone can end up feeling used. Because FWBs are free to

sleep with other people, it’s not uncommon for feelings of jealousy to arise. The disadvantages also include greater exposure to sexual risks. Some people feel safer with a FWB because they think they “know” them better than a stranger they just met at a party. Having a sex buddy doesn’t guarantee safer sex. If your FWB has several other sex buddies (the ones they keep secret from you in order to spare all those potential feelings), you can expect more exposure to sexually transmitted infections such as herpes, chlamydia, genital warts, and more. Having sex with an FWB only works well as long as both people play by the same accepted ground rules: the “relationship” is about sex and convenience without commitment or emotional intimacy. For many, these terms may feel like an unacceptable substitute for companionship. No matter what kind of relationship you are in, the best way to avoid hurt feelings and complicated emotions is to be clear about your expectations from the start.
