Regents address alcohol in Greek Life
VOLUME 107 • ISSUE 2
POSSIBLE PAROLE Former UA student who murdered roommate resentenced

GET AROUND CAMPUS WITH TIPS FROM PTS
FERNANDO GALVAN The Daily Wildcat
Several high-profile alcoholrelated incidents have led the Arizona Board of Regents to reach out to Greek Life at the three state universities. The board sent out a letter to the state universities in Arizona and the national headquarters of 70 fraternities and sororities discussing its concerns and intentions regarding alcoholrelated incidents. These include injuries, suicide, sexual assault and fatalities that have taken place and how the board hopes to stop these kinds of events from recurring. “I think that all of the university administrators at all three institutions want students to be safe and to be able to get involved — in any club or organization on campus — and to do that without any fear of putting themselves in any harm’s way or risk,” said Johanne Ives, assistant dean of Fraternity and Sorority Programs. “So I would say we share concerns in making sure students are safe.” Since 2012, Arizona’s three public universities have all had problems regrading alcohol use in fraternities and sororities on campus. In a recent incident, a member from the Arizona State University chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was found dead. The autopsy report said he drowned but that he also had a blood alcohol concentration of .28. “I don’t know what to attribute it to,” said Rick Myers, chairman of the board of regents. “If it is because we have more students, if it’s because things are happening in our society and certain things are more accepted then they used to be. It could be many reasons, and that’s why we reached out.” Despite the problems seen among the fraternities and sororities at the three state universities, the UA has not had an increase in alcoholrelated incidents, according to Ives. Myers said the board of regents understands that not all fraternities and sororities are responsible for these incidents and do not want to single them out. “We’re looking for this to be a positive experience,” Myers said. “This isn’t meant to single people out for problems, it’s meant to figure out how … we all work together to create a more positive environment.” The letter requested that Greek Life leaders provide the board with a response outlining how they would prevent and deal with safety issues within their organizations. Many of the fraternities and

GALAREKA HARRISON, middle, reacts during her re-sentencing in Superior Court Monday for the 2007 killing of her University of Arizona roommate. Alex Heveri, right, her attorney, partially placed responsibility with the UA for admitting Harrison despite evidence that she was incapable of functioning in a university environment.

A former UA student convicted of killing her roommate in their dorm in 2007 has been granted the possibility of parole. Galareka Harrison was sentenced to life in prison without parole in November 2008 for the murder of Mia Henderson, age 18. Harrison was convicted of stabbing Henderson in their room in GrahamGreenlee Residence Hall, one week after Henderson had accused her of stealing checks and $500 from a bank account. Harrison was also convicted of forgery and identity theft. On Monday, Harrison stood before Pima County Superior Court Judge Scott Rash to ask for a reduced sentence with the possibility of parole. Harrison’s attorney, Alex Heveri, argued that Harrison had been inadequately represented and that her attorney in 2008 had failed to give Harrison’s medical records to a psychologist who was evaluating her before her

original sentencing. Harrison didn’t have a criminal history, which is unusual for a murder case, Heveri said, adding that she chose to take on the case and investigate the reasons behind Harrison’s actions because she wanted to provide answers for those affected by the incident. “It wasn’t just for Galareka. It was for everybody to know the truth, because everybody had questions of why,” Heveri said. “Until people really learn why nobody has an understanding and it’s very hard to heal and very hard to move past.” Heveri also attributed Harrison’s actions to her difficulties coping in her new environment. Both Galareka and her roommate had moved from the Navajo Nation to the dorm for their freshman year. Harrison, who was 18 at the time of the stabbing, never had the experience of having to tell her parents she got in trouble, and when she was caught stealing money from Henderson, “it was the end of the world for her,” Heveri said. Heveri also said that Harrison was not ready to be admitted to a university. The UA sent a letter to the court stating university officials share some guilt about the incident, Rash said. “The defendant should have never been admitted to the university,” Rash read from the letter. “The defendant was clearly not capable of the academic curriculum at the university level, as one psychological report noted. Her personal statement on the entrance application was poorly written and not thought out.” Additionally, the letter stated that Galareka’s high

Red ribbon cut for green space EMILY BREGGER The Daily Wildcat
A ribbon cutting ceremony for a new field was held at the Student Recreation Center on Monday and was followed by an event focused on getting students involved both on and off campus. Meet Me At the Rec is an event held annually by the Rec Center, but this year the event was held on the brand new, $3.5 million Cherry Avenue field. The field, located on Sixth Street, will be used for intramural sports, clubs, fitness classes and active students in general. Melissa Vito, vice president for Student Affairs, thanked everyone who helped make the dream of the new field a reality at the ribbon cutting ceremony. “There has not been enough green space on campus for students and we are delighted to have this space available,” Vito said. “We have been planning this field for 10 years and it is incredible that it’s finally finished.” The field was funded by both Campus
Recreation and the Athletic Department. “It’s an awesome field,” said Colby Keicher, a general studies senior and Rec Center employee. “When people drive by now they aren’t looking at construction, they are looking at a green field.” Despite the less-than-perfect weather, the event had a sizable turnout. Once the ribbon was cut, the festivities began with food, options for club signups and giveaways. Student fees and a wide variety of organizations helped fund the large-scale event. Many of the sponsors had booths around the field promoting their businesses. “This event really helps spread awareness about the Rec [Center] and sports,” Keicher said. “Being able to hold it outside was awesome as well.” Style 7 Salon was one local business that participated in the event. Students could play corn hole at the salon’s booth for the chance to win free treatments, and anyone who stopped by

sororities that were contacted have responded, while others have asked for an extension until the end of the month, Myers said. At the board of regents’ meeting in September, the board will discuss the findings. “We reached out [to] the fraternities and sororities because our feeling is they have the same desire we have,” Myers said, “which is to create a better experience for young people so they can be successful in their university process.” In order to assist the board of regents and the fraternities and sororities at the UA, Ives said Greek Life staff compiled information, including information about how they work with the fraternities and sororities concerning safety, accountability, internal standards board processes, the greek standards board and educational programs. Macaulay Christian, president of Phi Delta Theta, said he would not have joined his organization had its members tried to haze him. “I would have dropped immediately and not put up with that kind of humiliation,” Christian said. “The men of Phi Delta Theta presented me with the qualities I found most important. This had little to do with any parties or social events. Far more important were the growth opportunities presented to me and the character of the men who made up the organization.”

In order to prevent congestion around campus during the first week of school, Parking and Transportation Services is providing students with services and tips to avoid the crowds. To help alleviate the traffic buildup around campus, a new traffic light was placed on University Boulevard and Park Avenue. Prior to this, there was only a four-way stop, which caused many delays, according to David Heineking, director of PTS. The stoplight was added in order to better regulate the flow of vehicles and pedestrians to make it safer for both parties, Heineking said. Students can also use some of the alternate transportation methods provided by the UA, which include the CatTran shuttle, Cat Wheels Bike Share and carpooling services. CatTran has developed a variety of ways to make its shuttles more efficient in bringing students to their destinations on time. The changes include a GPS systems in the shuttles and a newly developed app that allows students to see where the CatTran is in real time, according to Bill Davidson, manager of public

Some students said they expect the CatTran application will make it easier to use the service. “I just use the schedule and there are only some stations that they have the time [listed], so we have to guess how long it will take [the CatTran] to get to where you are standing,” said Phouthamaly
school had changed her grade to make her eligible for a scholarship. In her closing argument, Heveri added that Harrison had emailed university officials explaining her dire financial situation. Harrison did not have money for books or school supplies and the UA did not assist her, prompting her client to steal money from Henderson, Heveri said. Harrison said she intended to tell her family about the theft when she went home for Labor Day weekend, but she did not want to “break the family’s heart,” Heveri added. During the trial, members of Henderson’s family asked Rash to maintain Harrison’s sentence. The courtroom was filled with friends and family who cried throughout the hearing, and several spoke about the pain and the impact that Mia’s loss has had on their lives. Jennifer Henderson told the court about her daughter’s baby booties, which she kept despite the Navajo tradition of giving away all the possessions of a person once they die. Members of the Henderson family said they did not want their children to feel burdened in 25 years, when Harrison could be up for parole. “We need peace, and that’s what I’m asking,” Jennifer Henderson said. “I’m asking for peace in our lives to let our reservation community settle because it doesn’t matter where I go … people still tell me, to this day, how much it has impacted them.” Harrison’s parents also spoke at the trial. Both were emotional and in tears when apologizing to the Henderson family for their daughter’s crime. “I would like to apologize to Mia’s family,” said Janis Harrison, Galareka’s mother. “I am very, very sorry for what my daughter has done. I know that you had dreams for [Mia].” The UA declined to comment on the court’s decision to change Harrison’s sentencing.

“For those [students] that don’t have a bike that need to get from one side of campus to the other, this is a great way to check out a bike,” Davidson said. Another option for students is Zimride, which is a private carpooling service for students and employees who want to reduce traffic. Students fill out a short profile and use their student NetID to log in and post about a ride they need, according to Davidson. PTS also recommends students arrive early at their destinations to avoid crowds, and Heineking advised students to not ride their bikes in areas that have pedestrianheavy traffic, such as around the Student Union Memorial Center. If faced with crowded areas, Davidson added that students, faculty and staff must remain patient and take into account that it is the first week of school. He also said PTS focuses each year on transportation safety. “Safety is so important,” Davidson said. “Everything that we do as far as our program goes … we always think about safety first, especially with students.”

Nick Sweeton, senior associate director of residential education at Residence Life, said he remembered calling friends who worked in UA housing after hearing about the incident. He was working at the University of Hawaii’s housing program at the time, but Sweeton said the UA’s case was discussed in one of his staff meetings. “It caught the entire [residence life] field … off guard,” Sweeton said. After Henderson’s murder, UA Residence Life analyzed staff training methods, but Sweeton said no new practices or policies were developed. Resident assistants are asked to monitor residents, including their schedules, and check in with the students if they notice any deviations, such as if they see that a student stops going to class. “That’s not necessarily because we think there might be violence going on in the room, but we want to check for other things too, like make sure they’re doing well in classes and all that,” Sweeton said. RAs and residents are also reminded frequently of the importance of maintaining good communication between roommates, following their roommate contract and turning to staff or campus police if problems ever arise, Sweeton added. “This happens extraordinarily rarely across the country so … I don’t know if there���s anything differently we could’ve done ahead of time,” he said. “I don’t know, for example, why the roommate didn’t communicate to the RA or to staff that there was a problem in the room. I don’t know if we’ll ever know that.” The Dean of Students Office, Residence Life and Multicultural Affairs and Student Success worked together to provide personal and academic support for students who were affected by the incident. The offices also reached out to students’ parents.
the booth received free samples. The goal of the event was to introduce students to new things on campus, said Michele Schwitzky, senior assistant director of outreach for Campus Recreation and the coordinator for the event. “We have really expanded this year,” Schwitzky said. “This is the third year, but the first time it has been outside. We included local businesses and campus partners.” College Town Tucson had a raffle to win free parking for an entire academic year. Anthony Vizzerra, coordinator for College Town and a senior studying marketing, psychology and chemistry, said he was happy to help out with the event and thought it was very beneficial for incoming freshman. “I think it’s awesome for promoting businesses and sports,” Vizzerra said. KAMP Radio supplied the music, a giant bouncy house and volunteers to inform students about KAMP. The Pride Alliance was another organization participating in the event. Katie Kilby, co-director of Pride Alliance, ran the booth for promoting LGBT acceptance on campus. “I love this event because I get to meet students with all different passions,” Kilby said.

GALAREKA HARRISON, middle, listens to her former roommate’s family speaking in Superior Court during her re-sentencing. Family members spoke against Harrison receiving parole.
“We learned that our students are resilient, and that we are prepared to act and provide support to the university community in a time of crisis,” Kendal Washington White, interim dean of students, said in an email. Heveri, however, believes the UA can learn some lessons once the re-sentencing provides a better understanding of what happened in 2007. Although both Galareka and her roommate were in the Native American Student Affairs office’s First Year Scholars program, which aims to boost freshman retention, Heveri said Galareka’s issues went unnoticed. “I think one letter summed it up best,” Rash said before quoting the letter. “‘Tough love is sometimes warranted, tough love in this case would not change a defendant’s grade so that she could get a scholarship for a university that she was ill-prepared to attend.’” — follow Stephanie @_scasanova_ — follow Rachel @rmcclusk6

ASUA should follow through BY ANTHONY CARLI
The Daily Wildcat
he start of a new school year means student leaders have a renewed opportunity to make a difference on campus. This year’s administration and Senate must take the positions they hold seriously. Success is not measured by the fact that you were elected or appointed to office. Rather, it is the positive work completed while in office that is the real victory. As a member of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona cabinet last year, I’d like to believe that we actually carried out some good work. We brought students to breakfasts with President Ann Weaver Hart, created a sounding board for academic policy and gave $3,000 in scholarships to outstanding students. I know that it is possible for student government to actually enhance the state of students on campus. However, positions are often used as lines on resumes. This is not a new problem. Last year, I saw plenty of misguided pride placed in the official titles ASUA members held. Frankly, this problem is not exclusive to student government. After spending three months in Washington, D.C., this summer surrounded by members of Congress, it was evident that many of our elected officials define victory as the ability to be elected to an office and remain there. Our federal government suffers from an arrogance that paralyzes any true reformer wanting to make a positive change for our nation. To have a truly successful and productive student government, ASUA needs to remember that it is its duty to represent the entire student body. We attend a university with an undergraduate enrollment of 31,565 students. A dismal 4,320 students, or roughly 13 percent, voted in the last election. In the previous election for mayor of Tucson, 31.1 percent of registered voters came out to vote. In the 2012 presidential election, the turnout was 53.6 percent. I know how hard these elected officials worked on their campaigns, but 13 percent is a fraction of our student population. There is a reason the overwhelming majority of students are not voting: they do not have faith in ASUA to truly represent them. Jon Anderson, a senior studying economics, said he doesn’t feel ASUA is able to create true change. “I don’t doubt that students in ASUA are motivated to get things done, that’s not disputed,” Anderson said. “But the system around them, the framework they work in, doesn’t allow them to get real, actual change pushed through.” This is the same frustration that many Americans have expressed about Congress. ASUA should take time this year to rebuild that trust and represent 100 percent of our students, not just the 13 percent that turned out to vote. ASUA President Morgan Abraham said he has been working to create an external affairs department within the organization specifically designed to reach out to students. “We’re going to do a lot more work with polls and surveys, and things like that,” Abraham said. “And on top of that, we are going to a lot more clubs, greek, and any organization to kind of see what we’re doing wrong.” We all want ASUA to succeed, and I hope that this year our student government can. However, our elected officials need to forget about their titles. We don’t care about the office you hold, we care about what you can do to represent our needs and create a more prosperous campus environment.

Men can end rape culture BY CARSON SUGGS
The Daily Wildcat
college campus should be a safe space for everybody, but the reality can be — and has been — very different. In a 2012 report, the University of Arizona Police Department said it received reports of nine forcible sex crimes committed on campus between 2009 and 2011. Another five off-campus forcible sex crimes were reported to UAPD during that time period. RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, states that about 54 percent of sexual assaults go unreported, so the actual number of forcible sex crimes committed against university students is almost certainly higher. But rape culture is not beyond our control. It is hidden in plain sight, and we, especially men, have the means to end it. “Men in particular have little excuse not to use the privilege accorded to the them by a sexist society to push back against that

This kind of thinking is entirely backwards, yet it’s pervasive in sexism wherever they encounter college environments.

It’s a step in the right direction, but more needs to be done. “Rape culture is not just a women’s problem,” Clausen said. “We must all take a stand against harmful behavior.” In our conversation about rape and sexual violence, we should not be trying to teach women how to not get raped, but instead teaching men to not rape. The idea may seem simple, but it is lost on many, especially Saxton. For this shift in culture to occur, we must collectively assert, once and for all, that rape is inexcusable, and that victims of sexual violence are not to blame for what happened to them. Victims of sexual assault are never, ever “asking for it.” Men should become more active in the conversation, not to the point of running the dialogue, but simply by acknowledging that rape culture affects men as well as women. Men have to acknowledge rape culture because it portrays men as barbaric and unable to control themselves. It plays on the idea that men are not at fault for taking advantage of a woman who is unable to give consent, and that objectifying women is commonplace and acceptable. Ending rape culture requires an inclusive dialogue, and with a new school year upon us, promoting the physical and emotional safety of our student body is critical.

POLICE BEAT BY ALISON DORF The Daily Wildcat
Two non-UA affiliated men were arrested at approximately 11:47 a.m. on Aug. 21, after an officer from the University of Arizona Police Department spotted them walking around the bushes at a convenience store. The officer watched the men cross the street and enter a UA parking garage, where one of the men flicked his cigarette on the ground. The officer approached the man and told him it was a criminal offense to litter, and the man picked it up. The officer then went to the top of the parking garage and watched the men stop and look at some bicycle racks and lean against a wall near them. The officer then approached them again to determine their purpose on campus. By the time he reached ground level, one of the men had disappeared, and the officer asked the other man if he could speak with him. The man agreed, and informed the officer he was going to a hospital for an injury he had received after an assault earlier that morning, although he refused medical assistance, or to give law enforcement any names. He also told him that the other man, who had flicked the cigarette on the ground, was inside a UA building using the bathroom and then he identified himself. A records check revealed he had a warrant issued for failure to appear for an original charge of shoplifting. An assisting officer arrived and read him an exclusionary order for being disruptive on school property, and noticed the man had blood dripping from his nose. The other man was located inside the building, and was also found to have a warrant. Both men were transported to Pima County Jail and given exclusionary orders.
A little too trashed
On Aug. 22 at approximately 3:40 a.m., a UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students for a Minor in Bodily Possession of Alcohol, after a UAPD officer noticed him sleeping in an enclosed trash area on campus. The officer was unable to verbally wake the man and had to shake him to wake him up. The man smelled strongly of alcohol and struggled to provide his name and identification. When the student stood up, the officer noticed he was swaying and had to lean against the wall for support. His eyes were also watery and bloodshot. The officer read the student his Miranda rights and asked him if he had been drinking. The student said yes and added that he had been drinking vodka. He also stated that he had been drinking at a residence hall with friends, but he refused to give any names or who provided the alcohol. He said after drinking he needed to “walk it off,” but had become lost and sat down to get his bearings. The officer diverted him to the Dean of Students and took him back to his dorm.

The business behind Lowell-Stevens BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat
Arizona Stadium’s new Lowell-Stevens Football Facility represents the future for UA football. The $72.3 million addition provides a new home for the Wildcats and is expected to be a game changer when it comes to recruitment, maximizing revenue and fan amenities as the program looks to gain prominence as a top-tier BCS team. The new weight room, locker room, medical treatment center, equipment room, meeting rooms and coaches’ offices allow the football program to relocate from its old home in McKale Center, which athletic director Greg Byrne said provides a positive effect. Despite the project’s high cost, Byrne said he is confident that it is a major step in the right direction. “The impact it has on our football program is [and will continue to be] significant,” Byrne said. “We were probably the last BCS-level program that had their football operation in their basketball arena. Most moved out 20 years ago, so we were a little behind the times.” In addition to the new facility, another major renovation involved installing FieldTurf Revolution CoolPlay to replace the grass, which provides a training surface that looks appealing to recruits and holds up under rain and extreme heat. Additional fan amenities include updated restrooms, concessions and concourses, as well as improved cell service. The north end zone project, which included the construction of LSFF, the remodeling of Bear Down Field and the resurfacing of the football field, was funded mainly by charitable gifts and private donations. McKale Center was constructed for $8.145 million and paid for by

the state 40 years ago. “The Wildcat Club is the fundraising arm of our athletics department,” said Scott Shake, senior associate athletic director of development. “We utilize multiple revenue
streams from tickets, marketing, sponsorships, TV, radio, media rights and charitable giving [to finance Arizona Athletics].” The Wildcat Club was expected to provide a fundraising network for major gifts and worked in
coordination with the University of Arizona Foundation to find donations for the new facility. “There were a lot of families that gave to the project to make it a reality,” Byrne said. “We focused on people who were
passionate about the University of Arizona, our athletic department and our football program.” About half of the project was financed by five major donations: from Jeff and Sharon Stevens ($12 Million), David and Edith Lowell ($11 Million), Peter and Nancy Salter ($2.5 Million), Louis “Buzz” Sands IV ($10 Million) and Jim and Vicki Click ($2.5 Million), while the other half was made up of more than a hundred smaller donations. “We try to get a few of those six and seven figure gifts as naming rights on different spaces, and then we work with the development staff in identifying other areas that would have naming rights attached to it in order to maximize revenue,” associate athletic director of events Suzy Mason said. In addition to private donations and charitable gifts, Arizona Athletics also sells sponsorships, signage and promotions to large corporate companies inside the stadium. An average corporate sponsorship deal lasts for three to five years and provides Arizona with monetary funds while ensuring the sponsor recognition either through signage — or alternative multimedia — for the duration of the contract. On an average year, the athletic department sells upwards of $6 million of commercial sponsorships within the stadium, which contributes revenue to support not only football, but all sports at the UA. “We have 20 sports teams, and only two make more money than they spend,” Shake said. “We rely on revenue from football and men’s basketball to support everything. They are the ones that generate the income for swimming, golf, track and field and softball.” Since 2004, Arizona Athletics has partnered with IMG College to sell these corporate sponsorships,

In the first press conference of the regular season, head coach Rich Rodriguez once again refrained from announcing who will be the starting quarterback against NAU this weekend. He did, however, hint that senior B.J. Denker was ahead in the battle for the starting position. “B.J. Denker was a frontrunner coming in,” Rodriguez said. “In the beginning of camp it was a mix, and in the last week or so B.J. has gotten better. He’s still the frontrunner but we’ve got a few more practices before the week is over.” Rodriguez also noted that four players have been getting reps in the QB spot, including true freshman Anu Solomon. “With the inexperience we have, it’s an ongoing competition,” Rodriguez said. “We treat this position like the rest of them, rolling guys in and getting them a lot of reps. Whoever the best one is at game time gets the start.” The quarterback contenders may not live up to last year’s quarterback, Matt Scott, but they have shown improvement and that they are capable at the position, Rodriguez said. Rodriguez also announced during the press conference that the squad has remained relatively healthy as a result of less hitting during practices. This adds depth because fewer players are injured, however, practicing without hitting has proved difficult for the defense, according to senior defensive lineman Tevin Hood. Hood said he knew the offense was happy about less hitting, but personally, he was upset. “You go full speed but you have to tone it down because you don’t want to hurt people,” Hood said. “With no contact, you can’t really play defensive or offensive line, so that was

just something we had to get used to.” The Wildcats will open the season this Friday against NAU at Arizona Stadium. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network. UA football also released its first depth chart of the season, with starters for positions such as quarterback, kicker, linebacker and slot still to be determined. This competition results in better performances from the players, Rodriguez said. “If you want to elevate the performance of the guys, bring in competition,” he said.

Coach Hogan welcomes latest Wildcat recruits
Football gets easy beginning
The newest batch of freshmen is talented and from all over the map, with six forwards, three defensemen and a goalie BY JAMES KELLEY
BY JOEY PUTRELO
The Daily Wildcat
The Daily Wildcat
After missing the American Collegiate Hockey Association National Tournament his first two years as the head coach of Wildcat Hockey, Sean Hogan has high expectations for the recruits in his newest class. New Wildcat forwards Alex O’Dea and Grant Nicholson, along with defenseman Alex Vazquez, have all recently won junior hockey league championships. Forward Zach Morgan served as the captain of the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division I State Champions as well. “I think that winning breeds winning,” Hogan said, “so we’re really excited about that.” Stefan Kosior, Max Miller and Rob Wilkinson will join O’Dea and Nicholson’s group of Arizona’s freshman forwards. On the blue line, Vazquez, Wil Pointon and Mattheu Raiola make up the newest core of defensemen. One of Hogan’s first commits, TYLER BAKER/THE DAILY WILDCAT goalie Garrett Patrick, finds WILDCAT HOCKEY LOST 3-2 to No. 17 Central Oklahoma on Jan. 17 at the TCC. himself in a three-way competition for the starting job between the pipes.

he beginning of the Arizona football season is much like the start a new school semester. Professors ease students into classes with syllabi and introductions, while football starts out with some FCS-level competition. The Wildcats open up with NAU, UNLV, which lost 17-14 to the Lumberjacks at home last year, and UTSA, which is in its third year of playing football. Arizona’s non-conference schedule is so easy it would make even an SEC team blush. During training camp head coach Rich Rodriguez complained aloud about the lack of a preseason for college football. He must have missed the full schedule banner the Wildcats had set up in the outfield at their main practice facility. Arizona’s schedule is perfect to break in a new quarterback. The Wildcats can comfortably rotate quarterbacks until late September, when they travel to Washington. Senior B.J. Denker has almost won the quarterback job by default, as junior Jesse Scroggins was injured for spring football and the start of fall camp. Scroggins or one of the younger quarterbacks potentially have three games against light competition to catch up to Denker, the 2012 back-up. NAU returns 18 starters, and with a preseason FCS ranking of No. 18, is a prime contender
to make the playoffs. Big time college football won’t discover this “playoffs” business until next year. Arizona has won 10 games in a row against NAU and the Lumberjacks have only beaten the Wildcats once, in 1932. The in-state “rivals” have played six times this century and the closest NAU has come to an upset was a 34-17 Wildcat win in 2009. Next week Arizona hits the road to face UNLV, which is hardly daunting. Last year the Rebels went 2-11, 2-5 at home, and if you type “Bobby Hauck,” UNLV’s head coach, into Google, the first suggestion besides his name is “Bobby Hauck hot seat.” The UA’s first road test is more like an open book, open note quiz. UNLV features a likely lame duck coach and little fan support. Judging by how many UA fans went to the Pac-12 men’s basketball tournament in Sin City, there’s a good possibility the Wildcat supporters could be louder than the Rebel fans. UNLV averaged 15,208 fans last year in its 36,800 seat stadium. UTSA may be Arizona’s toughest conference foe, and the Roadrunners are hardly a powerhouse. UTSA went 8-4 last year, but those wins came against South Alabama, Texas A&MCommerce, Georgia State, Northwestern Oklahoma State, New Mexico State, McNeese State, Idaho and Texas State. In 2011, Texas-San Antonio was an FCS independent and went 4-6. By Sept. 14, Arizona will be the second-most prominent team UTSA has faced — yes, this Arizona, behind only Oklahoma State, which the Roadrunners will face Sept. 7. Just like for UA students, midterms and finals seem very far away for Arizona football.

signage and multimedia agreements in order to increase the production of the department’s revenue streams. “We have a long partnership, contract and license agreement with IMG to handle our sports marketing rights, which include corporate sponsorships, advertising, media rights and signage,” said James Francis, senior associate athletic director of external operations. “The relationship has been really good because it allows us to get a guaranteed annual income and then permits IMG to go out and sell [to major corporations]. They have been able to increase the number of people who are out there on our behalf trying to increase our revenue, which has been extremely beneficial.”

Q How many drinks on
average will get you to the .08 limit or above?
A. land most drinkers above .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC). An individual’s BAC depends on four factors: weight,
BEAR DOWN TIMES

gender, time, and strength of the drinks. While you can control how much and how fast you drink, weight and gender aren’t changeable in one evening.
A standard drink is 12 ounces of beer or 4 oz. of wine or 1 ounce shot of 80 proof liquor (40% ethanol). Every standard drink that a 140 pound woman consumes will raise her BAC .032. So, 3 drinks x .032 puts her at .96, which is over the legal DUI limit of .08 for those 21 and older. Every standard drink that a 180 male consumes will raise his BAC .02. Four standard drinks would put him right at .08. To see how weight and gender affect BAC see the tables below: Women 100 lbs. 140 lbs. 180 lbs.
BAC/drink .045 .032 .025
Men 140 lbs. 180 lbs. 220 lbs.
BAC/drink .026 .020 .017
Why such a big difference in how alcohol affects men and women? Weight is big factor. Females generally weigh less than men and they have less alcohol dehydrogenase (the liver enzyme that metabolizes alcohol) than males. Men typically have more muscle mass than women – which helps dilute alcohol in the blood stream. To stay safer when drinking alcohol, it’s recommended that women limit themselves to one standard drink an hour and men limit drinks to one or two drinks per hour. With moderate drinking, you likely will have better times, better memories, and fewer regrets.
A 40 oz. Budweiser is actually 3.8 standard drinks.

ART sets the stage for 2013-2014 Arizona Repertory Theatre’s upcoming season to debut with French farce ‘Boeing-Boeing,’ followed by Shakespeare, musical ERIN SHANAHAN The Daily Wildcat
Arizona Repertory Theatre is gearing up for this season’s performances, with productions varying from a Shakespeare classic to the 1940s award-winning musical “Oklahoma!” The theater’s first production this year will be “Boeing-Boeing,” a 1960s farce based on the antics of a bachelor with three fiancés who are all oblivious to the others’ existences. The production will run from Sept. 22 to Oct. 13. Bruce Brockman, director for the UA School of Theatre, Film and Television, said there is a formula for choosing an ideal series of performances. “We want to make sure the material we select is challenging for the students and is appropriate to the talent we currently have in the school,” Brockman said. “We also want to offer our students and community audiences an array of work that is both entertaining and artistically important, and represents a broad range of dramatic literature.” The upcoming season will be “intriguing” to UA students and the Tucson community, Brockman said, because Arizona Repertory Theatre features elements “other companies in town can’t produce.” Additionally, theatergoers can look forward to a refurbished ticketing system that will offer more purchasing options to students, Brockman said. Also new this semester will be “Widescreen Wednesdays,” where the school will host a free film screening of each production preceding its premiere at the Center for Creative Photography. An information session hosted by faculty from the school will follow each session. “This is a wonderful opportunity to see how dramatic works and musicals translate from stage to screen,” Brockman added. Rehearsals for “Boeing-Boeing” began on Aug. 19. The actors have been reviewing their scripts and doing dialogue work all summer to ensure their voices will be appropriate for their roles when the play makes its debut in September.

Poetry center head aspires to wider presence TYLER MCDOWELL-BLANKEN The Daily Wildcat
From his office in the Modern Languages building, newly appointed Poetry Center Director Tyler Meier clearly illustrates his vision for the center — expanding its national profile. Meier arrived in Tucson after spending nearly six years as managing editor of The Kenyon Review, a journal spotlighting international culture, literature and art in Gambier, Ohio. Although his first day at the UA was Aug. 5, Meier had been under consideration for the position since January. After a phone interview and a few campus visits, he received a formal job offer in late spring. He describes his new role as a “dream job” and an
“incredible opportunity.” “It was like I was in a city, looking through shop windows,” Meier said, referring to features of the center such as its rare book collection and meditation garden. “I loved my job at The Kenyon Review, but this job is so exciting.” Meier, the second-oldest of three brothers, grew up in the rural city of Delaware, Ohio. The town’s blue-collar atmosphere influenced the work ethic Meier learned during hours spent baling hay with his father and brothers, he said. “I hated it for a large part of my childhood,” he added. Meier eventually found his calling working in the literary arts, and his peers are quick to praise his expertise.
“He has all the talent in the world,” said David Lynn, editor of The Kenyon Review, where Meier had worked as a managing editor since August 2007. “I was very sad to lose him.” Meier was also a student in one of Lynn’s classes at Kenyon College during the 1999 school year. Although Meier will be tasked with many challenges as the center’s new executive director, Lynn expressed full confidence in his former colleague’s abilities. “[Serving as executive director] is very different from being a ‘number two’ in an organization,” Lynn said, “but I have no doubt that he will flourish.” Meier has also already made an impression on his new colleagues on campus, students. “I’m super excited to work with him,” said Jessica Jenkins, the Poetry Center’s marketing assistant and a second-year graduate student studying creative writing. “He’s really available. He always pops up to say hi.” Jenkins said she would like to see Meier sustain an attitude of “keeping an open mind and [being] ready to take on the unexpected,” while having the
began under the motto, “Just think ’60s.” Stage manager Kendall Phillips, also a design and technical production senior, said he is eagerly anticipating the advancements made in rehearsals. “The set and costumes have been drafted and rendered, so now we’re just waiting to see what fun discoveries we can find in the rehearsal room,” he said. “I’m really excited for this production because it’s a hilarious script and we have some actors who can really do it justice.”

all programs that he would like to see continue. Social media and the expansion of the center’s website will also be crucial, and it is essential to never forget the communities that the center serves, he added. “I hope that the national footprint for the center is a bigger one,” Meier said, “but not at the expense [of ] how we serve the regional and local community.” Perhaps the most significant and simplest approach that Meier plans to implement during this transitional period is to listen. “I’ve got a lot of listening to do,” he said. “There are a lot of great people here. I’m really excited about creatively thinking with this staff.” Regardless of the outcome of Meier’s first weeks in office, he knows that there’s always room for improvement — and that’s something he’s ready for. “We can always get better on how we do the things we do,” he said. “Those kind of conversations I’m excited to engage in.”
