SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

With classes, activities and friends, it can be hard to keep track of what’s happening on campus and around Tucson. Here is our guide to help you out

Looking for an opportunity to cheer on your favorite team and rep your best UA gear? Here’s a list of some notable home games this semester

IMPORTANT DATES

NOTABLE FALL HOME GAMES

Move-In Days: August 15 - 18

For students planning to move in Aug. 15, there is a $55 move-in fee. Any students wishing to move in after 7 p.m. on Aug. 18, please notify the Housing office at (520) 621-6501 or housing@email. arizona.edu, or you could risk having your application for housing canceled.

Classes Begin: August 20

Women’s Soccer vs UTEP: August 11

Season Home Opener It will be important for head coach Tony Amato and his team to get off to a quick start and they will have a chance to do so before classes even begin.

Football vs BYU: September 1

The 2018-2019 school year kicks off on this date for 16-week courses. Start dates for seven- and five-week courses vary, depending on the class.

Home Opener This opening match up is the picture-perfect measuring stick game for Arizona as they look to reach their first Rose Bowl in program history.

Family Weekend 2018: October 5 - 7

Volleyball vs ASU: September 20

Mom and dad have their own weekend set aside, with a meet-andgreet with President Dr. Robert Robbins scheduled for Friday, and the football game against Pac-12 rival California on Saturday.

Homecoming 2018: October 21 - 27

While the football game against Oregon on Saturday may get all the attention, festivities actually kick off the Sunday before with the lighting of the ‘A’ on A-Mountain. There will be an A-Mountain Lighting Ceremony at 5:30 on the top floor of the Main Gate Garage.

All Souls Procession: November 2 - 4

Not quite Dia de Los Muertos or Halloween, this uniquely Tucson event features an almost three-mile-long procession of elaborate floats and decorations through some of Southern Arizona’s oldest and most historical neighborhoods.

Thanksgiving Break: November 22 - 25

Students return home for a long weekend of food, fun and studying for upcoming finals. Or more food.

Final Exams: December 7 - 13

Pac-12 Conference Opener Nothing would wash the bad taste out of this Wildcats team’s mouth like a conference opening win at home over its bitter instate rivals.

Women’s Soccer vs Utah: September 27

Pac-12 Home Opener Competing in the Pac-12 means beating the teams who are in the middle of the pack with you, and beating Utah at home right before the meat of the schedule will be crucial to finishing the year strong.

Football vs USC: September 29

If you want to consider yourself a contending football program in the Pac-12, beating USC is the only way to do it.

Men’s Basketball vs Houston Baptist: November 7 Home Opener Being in attendance for the first competetive game of the upcoming season is a must.

With Reading Day, better known as Dead Day, falling the day before this week-long struggle, make sure to get any pre-test shenanigans out of the way early, or you could oversleep and miss that 9 a.m. o-chem final.

Volleyball vs UCLA: November 18

Winter Break: December 14 to January 9

Football vs ASU: November 24

After spending 72 straight hours studying to ace that last final, nearly a month of recovery time awaits.

With the southern California schools routinely being national title contenders, there is no better measuring stick to see just where your program lies. Arizona hosts in-state rivals ASU on Thanksgiving weekend for their season finale.

EDITORIAL

We are The Daily Wildcat — and you are, too BY DAILY WILDCAT OPINIONS BOARD @DailyWildcat

I

f you’re reading this, you’re interested enough in student-run journalism to pick up a copy of our Campus Guide or check us out online. For that, we here at the Daily Wildcat are extremely appreciative. In this issue, you’ll find stories encompassing a broad spectrum of student experience, from clubs and cultural centers to where the football game is this weekend. People from Heisman Trophy hopefuls to student body representatives are profiled here, so you can better understand your fellow students. And that’s because all of us here at the Daily Wildcat are students, too. If there is something big happening on campus, it’s a safe bet we’re on it. But since the UA, with its enrollment of close to 45,000 students, is so large and diverse, sometimes things get missed. That’s where you come in. As both our readers and our peers, we at the Daily Wildcat want you to know that, even more than being a resource for students, students are our greatest resource: student involvement and feedback makes us a stronger, more diverse and more informed newsroom.

So if you see something on campus and feel it deserves either scorn or praise, let us know. If you read something in our pages that inspires (or disgusts) you enough to drive you to action, well, maybe you’ll be the subject of one of our stories soon. Ultimately, our charge as journalists is to cover you our community. It just so happens that that community includes all of “us,” too. That is the beauty of journalism. Far from being the “enemy of the people” that some see the profession as, we are “of the people.” We strive every day to bring you the best, and sometimes the less than best, of this community we call the University of Arizona. The decisions and events we write about every day affect students, staff and the surrounding community. Here at the Daily Wildcat, we’ll keep raising hell with, and for, all of you. Let us know if we miss anything, and look online and on newsstands for our latest content. Bear Down, and have a great semester. — Editorials are determined by The Daily Wildcat Opinions Board and are written by its members: Editor-in-chief Jasmine Demers, Managing Editor Marissa Heffernan, Engagement Editor Eddie Celaya and Arts & Life Editor Pascal Albright.

GUEST LETTER | STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT

Welcome to the family, from your student body prez GUEST LETTER BY NATALYNN MASTERS @UASBPresident

W

elcome Wildcats! My name is Natalynn Masters, and I am your student body president. I want to take this time to welcome you to campus and let you know how excited we are to have you join the Wildcat family. College is an exciting journey that will provide you with some of your best memories. The Universityof Arizona is a unique place; its rich history and traditions, school spirit, academic excellence and cutting-edge research will make your college experience remarkable. There is something on campus for everyone. We have over 600 different clubs, cultural and resource centers, intramural sports, research opportunities and much, much more! Despite all of these qualities and opportunities, college can still be a scary leap to take. For many of you, this is your first time away from friends and family. This distance may be down the street, across

the country or even across the globe. This is your first time to truly be an independent adult. With this freedom, you also have to begin “adulting.” You have the ability to make college whatever you want. Waking up at 7 a.m. for class in high school is a thing of the past. You will have the chance to meet students from across the world and even some from the same city as you. College is the perfect place to explore, meet people and grow as an individual. Organizations like student government are here to ensure that you are supported and connected on campus. Our student government, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA), is full of programs and services that work to better your student experience. As your ASUA President, I am here to serve you in any way possible. I ran for this position to fight for student issues. It is my job to the give you the platform to share your story. There are three main areas that I am working on this year: diversity, sexual assault and student engagement. I am working to address diversity concerns on campus. It is crucial that the University of Arizona be a place where every student feels accepted and empowered. We have a community that consists of students who hail from multiple backgrounds that contribute to making the Wildcat Family vibrant. This means working to ensure every member of that family

feels safe on campus. Sexual assault is an issue on all college campuses, and the UA is no different. For the past three years, ASUA has organized the “I Will” campaign. This weeklong campaign centers around ending rape culture through promoting consent and raising awareness about sexual assault. Students have the opportunity to take a pledge saying “I Will end rape culture by ...” This year, we are planning to make “I Will” week bigger than ever in order to educate students around campus. This is only one of the ways we work to get students engaged. Student engagement means students can get better connected to ASUA and campus resources. We are a large institution with a lot to offer, but many times it is hard for students to find out about these amazing opportunities. Be sure to follow ASUA on social media @ASUATODAY in order to stay connected. Again, I welcome you and your loved ones to the University of Arizona.

Connect, explore, enjoy the Wildcat experience

President Dr. Robert Robbins is the 22nd president of the University of Arizona. He officially took up the role of president on June 17, 2017 and has spent his first year learning about the campus community and working to develop a new strategic plan BY JASMINE DEMERS @JasmineADemers

Daily Wildcat editor-in-chief Jasmine Demers spoke with President Dr. Robert Robbins about the upcoming school year and his advice for students who are just beginning their journey at the University of Arizona. Their conversation has been edited for length and clarity. Daily Wildcat: What is your favorite thing about the University of Arizona? Robert Robbins: I think it’s the people. It’s the spirit and enthusiasm of the faculty, staff, students, alumni, people in the city … everyone is so supportive and so proud of the university. They want to see the university do great things and I think that’s a real shared, communitybuilding attitude that I think is really special. DW: What do you wish you knew as a freshman? RR: I wish I knew just how much fun I was going to have through the whole process of learning, meeting and developing relationships with people and how great my life was going to be … I loved every minute of the journey and the process of always learning something new and always challenging myself … If I look back on it, I wish I knew how hard it was going to be and could’ve seen that if you do work this hard, you’re going to have the opportunity to do wonderful things. I want to now infuse that into all of our students, no matter what they do. DW: What advice do you have for incoming students? RR: Always try to slow the game down … I know that there are a lot of our students who have gone to incredible schools and have done very, very well, and have figured out that the game moves very fast. Well, it’s about to move a lot faster.

You’re going to be leaving home, not have as much structure, you’re going to be challenged more and the social interactions are going to be different. So, realize that the game is going to move a lot faster and enjoy the journey, but also realize that focusing in on working is going to be very important. Go to class, listen, immerse yourself into what you’re studying. I would also say, at the same time, to enjoy everything that this great university has to offer. There are so many clubs, so many activities and so many people, and every person has a story. One of the things that makes our university so great is the diversity of its people. You’re going to have the opportunity as a freshman and throughout your career to meet people from different places, all over the world … Enjoy, explore, get to know people because now, as you transition, these people are going to be a set of your closest, lifelong friends. DW: What resources/opportunities are there for student to get involved? RR: There are so many clubs on campus. The work is really hard, so you need to find something to balance that. Find other interests. This is a time in your life to explore other things, and you need some diversion from always focusing on the work … Through clubs, you can meet people who come from different backgrounds but share something together. DW: Favorite place to eat? RR: The student union, for sure, is my favorite place to eat, although I’m still discovering new things. I recently took a tour of the whole union, and Chef Omo is incredible. We are incredibly fortunate to have him here. He ran the whole MGM empire in Las Vegas for years and to have a talent like that here, changing the culinary culture, the service and the experience, is just really special. There’s a place down on the first floor

where you can take a class and learn how to make things. But I like all of the restaurants in the union, there’s not one that I don’t eat at. I guess if you checked my bank records, the one that probably shows up the most, because I go there almost every morning, is Einstein [Bros.] Bagels. DW: What can students expect out of the strategic plan this year? RR: As I keep saying, the number one objective for our strategic plan is that it’s student-focused. If we did nothing else except create a plan for how to help students succeed better, then we could stop there. Everything else is just additional benefits. Our graduation and retention rates are just not acceptable for what a great institution this is, and collectively we have to focus on that. We are the surrogate families for these students. For the most part, students are leaving home to come here. So, first and foremost is safety. We have to make sure that we are providing safety for students across campus so no one has to fear that they are going to be harmed,

discriminated against or threatened in any way. I’ll be keeping a constant discussion about safety this next year. Academically, we also have to do a better job because we’re a globally recognized university, yet our graduation and retention rates are at the bottom of our peer group. We’re just better than that, and I think it’s a wakeup call for us to really focus in on helping students be more successful. DW: Do you have any last words for students as they start the semester? RR: Thank you for choosing the University of Arizona. I hope that we, collectively as a community and as your surrogate family, that we do a good job and that we prepare you to realize your hopes and dreams going forward. There’s a lot of excitement about coming here and getting started, and I’m sure there’s also a lot of angst. So, keep the enthusiasm and try not to let the angst get in the way because it’ll be difficult at times, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t derive great joy from the work you’re doing and have fun at the same time.

NEWS | TECHNOLOGY

First-day downloads Here’s a list of the top five apps — plus a few runner-ups — that you should download to make your time on campus easier. From free rides to fast food and academic portals, there’s an app for that

#2: THE DAILY WILDCAT APP - FOR ALL YOUR UA NEWS

Just when you think the Daily Wildcat can’t get any better, you can download the app! With a clear layout, this easy-to-navigate app is crucial to keep up with all things UA. Push notifications can bring you breaking news, the latest basketball scandal and the latest police beat. You can also access the digitized weekly print edition and connect with the Daily Wildcat on social media. If music or T.V. is more your style, this app has something for you, too. KAMP Radio and UATV also can be accessed through the app, so music, broadcasts and news are never further than your back pocket.

#3: TAPINGO - FOR ALL THE FOODIES

As one of the most popular food ordering and delivery/pick-up apps for students, it is also arguably the No. 1 service implemented by many of the vendors in the UA Student Unions, Highland Market and other restaurants around campus. Used by hundreds of starving college students, Tapingo’s purpose is so that you won’t have to wait in line. Whether you to need to grab a quick bite between classes or need to refuel during a study session, the app is convenient for any student on the go.

#5: METROPIA - BEST PARKING-SPACE FINDER

The University of Arizona’s Parking and Transportation Services partners with Metropia to help Wildcats find the ideal route to the best parking space during heavily-trafficked events such as football games. The app allows you to see parking availability and fees in lots and garages in real time and guides you to less-congested areas around UA’s surrounding streets. It also rewards app users who carpool and plan routes in advance with points that can be exchanged for various gift card prizes. Last year, PTS also provided prize packs to five raffle winners each week in the fall semester. The app has been highly recommended to UA visitors by PTS during special events.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

GroupMe - To remind that one member Group projects and presentations have always included the hassle to get everyone on the same page. At UA, GroupMe is a very popular group-messaging app that aids in managing group conversations and keeping in contact with everyone. It is an easy and informal platform with useful features such as liking messages and tagging individual users. There’s essentially no limit to the amount of people you can add to one chat. UAgenda - Know where to go A newly developed UA app that helps you manage your course schedules, replacing old print-outs and screenshots of your UAccess Class Schedule page.

We have been serving Tucson since 1974 and have built our business on honest work and fair prices.

CRAYCROFT

The official University of Arizona app has almost everything UA in one place: navigation, transportation, UAcesss, D2L, CatMail, health, news, entertainment and so much more. Though there are complaints of it being slow and crashing at times, the mobile app is considered a very practical must-have by many Wildcats. The app provides access to useful UA resource sites and UA-connected apps, such as UActive (for Campus Rec scheduling), UNutrition (Student Union’s nutrition-calculator app), TransLoc Rider (for CatTran real-time tracking) and LifeSafe (an app to get connected with UAPD for location tracking and safety resources in case of emergency).

This free Associated Students of the University of Arizona service runs from Sunday through Thursday 6:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. Their mission is to provide an alternative to walking alone on campus, and the service is managed and operated by students. You can call SafeRide at 520-621-SAFE(7233), but the system often bogs down with calls, so the new app is a useful alternative. Input your location from the list of official pick-up spots and choose a destination. When the car arrives, just show your CatCard. The website notes that SafeRide is not a designated driving service, so if you’re intoxicated, you may be refused service. Search TapRide in the app store and select our school to start requesting rides!

Kendal Washington White, as dean of students, oversees pretty much any student issue you can think of. This includes issues such as student accountability, academic integrity and disruptive or threatening behavior, as well as resources like LGBTQ Affairs, cultural centers and the Women’s Resource Center. Any Title IX issue will be handled through this office, as will sexual assault or substance possession issues. The Dean of Student’s Office page says the “role of the Dean of Students Office includes challenging and supporting students when crises or emergencies arise, and when students make poor decisions related to personal behavior and integrity.”

UA Cultural Centers embrace campus diversity BY PASCAL ALBRIGHT @pascalloves

One of the University of Arizona’s primary goals is to engage with its campus community, demonstrating diverse and inclusive values. To achieve inclusive excellence, the UA provides several opportunities to interact with people from varying backgrounds. The campus has multiple resource and cultural centers that help with student diversity and inclusivity. Asian Pacific American Student Affairs The UA’s Asian Pacific American Student Affairs, along with the other cultural and resource centers, supports students in achieving academic and personal excellence by shaping a safe and inclusive campus environment, according to Paula Maez of APASA faculty. APASA provides a variety of involvement opportunities for leadership development, as well as a welcoming and inclusive environment rooted in culturally sensitive programming to support students in their pursuit of academic excellence. Some of the services APASA provides include: tutoring and advising, mental and

physical wellness programs and support, professional development opportunities, student organizations, jobs and internships and culturally affirming programs and events. APASA wishes to recognize that the UA has a diverse community and to encourage Asian, Pacific Islander and Desi American students to experience community at the center. “We strive to let students know about our services, programs, and experiences that deliver an opportunity for them to connect with staff and other students who identify as being from the same cultural background, intersecting identities while focusing on campus and community engagement, personal growth, academic excellence and a diverse UA experience,” Maez said. “Moreover, we encourage our UA community to understand the diversity within our Asian Pacific American student population.” Native American Student Affairs According to its website, NASA provides “culturally sensitive academic counseling and support services to American Indian/Alaskan Native students enabling them to achieve academic excellence.” NASA has programs such as the Early

NEWS | FAITH AND RELIGION

Religious, secular groups welcome students The University of Arizona is home to a diverse range of faith and religious communities. Here are some of them: Tucson LDS Institute of Religion: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a space for adults 18 to 30 to practice Mormonism and find students who share the same beliefs. It is geared toward young adults who are looking to study the Bible and Book of Mormon, and take classes to graduate from the institute with a stronger understanding of Jesus Christ’s and Joseph Smith’s teachings. St. Thomas More Catholic Newman Center: The Newman Center is a Catholic campus ministry that allows Catholic students to be part of a community that supports their faith. The center has historical significance — it was created in 1883 by a group of students at the University of Wisconsin that felt discriminated for their faith by their professors and began to meet on regular occasions to discuss their Catholicism.

TABLES FOR THE UNIVERSITY of Arizona’s 2017 Study Abroad Fair at the Student Union Memorial Center feature various study abroad programs. Study abroad opportunities are educational experiences that benefit students and can be made affordable despite sometimes daunting costs.

Study abroad 101: A five step guide The University of Arizona has plenty of options when it comes to studying internationally. Here is a quick primer on the steps you should take to set yourself up for success BY MEKAYLA PHAN @DailyWildcat

Studying abroad is a golden opportunity that any student can take to travel, see the world, gain a unique learning experience and open doors to new career opportunities. Recently returned from studying in Copenhagen, Denmark this summer, junior psychology and sociology major Alyssa Montijo said it was one of the best decisions she ever made. Now, as a University of Arizona study abroad student worker, she encourages everyone to pursue such opportunities. However, students often don’t know where to start. So, here are five recommended steps for starting your study abroad adventure. Step One: Explore Study Abroad Programs UA Global currently has over 100 different kinds of study abroad programs. Look around to find which ones you are interested in and consult with your academic advisor. You can learn more about choosing a program by attending the UA Study Abroad weekly information session, going to a study abroad fair or consulting with a peer advisor. Though it’s never too late to travel, study abroad coordinators say it’s best to start planning early — during freshman year is ideal. Danny Vander Ploeg, UA Global marketing manager, said it’s also helpful to save a few general education classes each semester if you plan to study abroad for a full semester or year.

exactly what you need once you start an application. Step Two: Financial Aid and Scholarship Resources Studying abroad can be affordable. There are plenty of resources, such as financial aid and scholarships, available to everyone. Search the UA Global website or meet with a study abroad coordinator for assistance. The best time to speak with a coordinator is about a year before you plan on studying abroad. That will help with scholarships that have early deadlines and increase your chances of receiving them. It’s also a good opportunity to get a passport if you do not have one yet, since passports take around two months to process. You can apply for one through the school at the UA Passport Office. Step Three: Learn More About Your Program After you finally narrow down which program you want to pursue, look through it in detail with a study abroad coordinator. Every program is different, as are the requirements, so a study abroad coordinator can tell you

The barriers you face [studying abroad] end up being really great when you learn to overcome them, and that makes you proud.” —Alyssa Montijo, Junior, Psychology and Sociology

Step Four: Start an Application If you haven’t made an appointment with a study abroad coordinator, do so. It is highly recommended, and they can help you stay on track with application deadlines. Montijo says there are a few students who enroll in her program that she never sees, and they are the ones always emailing questions. And after you submit your application and it’s accepted, you can move on to the final step. Step Five: Prepare to Study Abroad UA Global hosts health, safety and other trainings for students studying abroad. These can range from a few meetings to several depending on your program. It is also usually required for all the program’s students to meet and get to know each other. You can also prepare for studying abroad by researching cultural and social customs. Then you are done! Every study abroad experience is unique, and, like Montijo, you can share your stories and encourage others to begin their own study abroad journey as well. “Since I had such a good studying abroad experience, I wanted to share it with other people,” Montijo said. Though it does take a while with each step and all of the paperwork, it can be worth it if you are committed. Montijo found that studying abroad was not only beneficial academically, but personally as well. “The barriers you face end up being really great when you learn to overcome them, and that makes you proud,” she said. “It’s kind of a beautiful little process.”

NEWS | BICYCLE SAFETY

Biking on campus? Tips for securing your ride BY VICTOR GARCIA @VicGarcia96

On the giant list of things to consider when settling in a new place like the University of Arizona, transportation is undoubtedly near the top. Whether a student resides on- or offcampus, transportation has a huge impact on how they plan to get to class on time. Purchasing a parking pass, refilling the gas tank and occasionally changing the oil can be daunting for some students. However, switching from four to two wheels can have its perks and, according to UA Alternative Transportation Program Manager Jessica Hersh-Ballering, the university is a perfect opportunity for students to get used to a biking lifestyle. “Once you feel comfortable enough biking around campus, it’s time to get off campus and go see everything Tucson has to offer,” Hersh-Ballering said. The UA is home to a tremendous number of bikes owned and rented by students. There are also plenty of bike racks and public repair stations scattered around campus. “We have great bike-shared paths, bikeshared roadways and some of Tucson’s most

bike-friendly streets come right through the UA,” Hersh-Ballering said. Tucson’s bike-friendly community encourages students to hop on the seat, grab those handle bars and rotate the pedals on a bike. “I always recommend taking University Boulevard, or Third Street,” HershBallering said. Biking on campus can be something students try occasionally for almost no expense, since Parking and Transportation Services offers students the option of renting a bike for free at select UA garages and the Rec Center’s Outdoor Rental Center through the Cat-Wheels Bike Sharing program. UA cyclists with personal bikes face fewer expenses compared to the fees associated with car ownership, such as parking. According to Hersh-Ballering, aside from offering over 10,000 free bicycle-parking spaces, PTS also provides free bicycle registration. Not only does getting a personal bike registered increase the chances of recovering a bike if lost or stolen, it also allows students to make use of bike services on campus. “UA Parking and Transportation Services

is partnering for the first time with Campus Rec to run our free campus bike repair station, taking place on the campus mall right next to our main bike valet,” HershBallering said. Aside from keeping a bike well maintained, it is also wise to keep a bike safe when parked by using a U-lock. This must be properly done by “putting the lock through both the frame and the front tire, and always locking to a proper bike rack,” according to Hersh-Ballering. If a U-lock is not enough to keep a valuable bike safe, other alternatives include bicycle enclosures or a locker. Enclosures are security-fenced areas with bike racks inside that students can rent a space in for $35 per year. Bicycle lockers, on the other hand, cost $100 each year, with an additional $80 deposit for the key that is refundable upon return. It is important to keep a bike safe when parked, but even more important is keeping yourself safe when sharing the road with others. “Bicyclists need to mostly remember that, when you’re on the roadway, you are operating much in the same way as a motor

WELCOME HOME WILDCATS Your guide to University of Arizona history and traditions

BY EDDIE CELAYA @reporterEddie

Since 1885, the University of Arizona has been a pillar of the Tucson community. The traditions and history of the campus run deep, with over 130 years of academic research, public advancements and an ever-growing sense of pride and spirit. As an incoming student, here’s the UA history and traditions that you need to know. John “Button” Salmon and the genesis of “Bear Down” Let’s get to the important stuff first. The most frequent question asked by freshmen, newcomers and sports commentators is almost always: “Why do the Wildcats ‘Bear Down?’” It’s a question with a remarkable answer, one that evokes the genesis of sports mythology at the UA. After the first football game of the 1926 season, starting quarterback and student body president John Byrd “Button” Salmon was in a car accident that shattered his spine. The popular student-athlete was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital, where every evening until his death legendary UA football coach James “Pops” McKale (McKale Center’s namesake) would visit him. On the night before Salmon died, McKale asked if he had a message for his fellow players. In pain, Salmon whispered something to McKale. Salmon died the next morning. He was so revered that, after his death, his body laid in state for a day at the old UA assembly hall. Later that week, the football team traveled to New Mexico State University for a game. Before kickoff, McKale gathered the players around him. Former Arizona lineman Martin Gentry, who was a member of the 1926 team, recalled the scene. “It was a very emotional moment,” he said. “Mac

said that he had asked Button if he had a message for the team. And Button had told him ‘Tell them … tell the team to bear down.’” Bear Down continued — birth of a fight song Technically, “Bear Down, Arizona,” the song that’s played every day at noon over the Student Union Memorial Center speakers, isn’t the official school fight-song. That honor belongs to “Fight Wildcats Fight,” which was written in 1929 by Dugald “Douglas” Stanley Holsclaw. The lyrics declare, “Hail Arizona Wildcats, Fighting for old UA. A raging team of Wildcats, growling for the fray. There’s not a team can stop them, when the ball goes into play, so Fight! Team! Fight with all your might, and win today.” Admittedly, pretty uninspired stuff. Luckily, the unofficial school fight song, composed by Jack K. Lee in 1952, has a little more fight and a cool story behind it. Lee was applying for the job of band director at the university, and, after his interview, had flown home to Michigan to wait on the UA’s response. On the flight home, his plane passed over Bear Down Gym, and he saw the famous motto painted on the gym’s roof for the first time. Overcome with inspiration, Lee reached for an air-sickness bag and a pen and came up with this: “Bear down, Arizona! Bear down, red and blue! Bear down, Arizona! Hit ‘em hard let ‘em know who’s. Bear down, Arizona! Bear down, red and blue! Go, go, Wildcats go! Arizona, bear down!” The rest, as they say, is history. To note: When playing Arizona State, it’s fine to replace “hit ‘em hard, let ‘em know who’s who,” with “beat the hell out of ASU.” The Student Union Memorial Center — a connection to the U.S.S. Arizona While its evolution continues, the Student Union Memorial Center has always served as the center

of campus life. Now one of the largest student unions in the country, its genesis is decidedly humbler. University President Cloyd Heck Marvin proposed the idea of a student union in 1923, but it wasn’t until 1938 that a committee was formed to raise funds for the project. That effort stalled due to the start of World War II and the UA continued on without a student union for the first half of the 20th Century. Then, in 1951, 28 years after it was first proposed and $1.2 million later, the University of Arizona Student Union Memorial Center was completed and opened to the UA community. Since its inception, the Union (as it’s known on campus) has served as more than a cafeteria and meeting space. At its opening, the original Union featured a bell tower harboring a bell recovered from the wreckage of the U.S.S. Arizona. The nearly 2,000-pound bell, still found on the Union’s fourth floor, is rung seven times the third Wednesday of the month at 12:07p.m., the time the attack began. In 2003, after two full years of renovation and nearly doubling its square footage, the Union reopened, sporting a new design inspired by the profile of the states’ namesake battleship. The Union now serves as a living memorial to the men and women who served and gave their lives for their country.

Wilbur and Wilma: A love story Get used to seeing this feline couple around campus. Married mascots Wilbur T. and Wilma T. (the “T” stands for “The”) Wildcat are the official UA mascots and easily the coolest cats in town. Their story, like their romance, is eternal. Wilbur began as a live bobcat called Rufus Arizona, named for the school’s then-President, Rufus von KleinSmid (who we assume had the facial hair of an 1800s train conductor). After Rufus died in 1916, the university went without an official mascot for a while. Then, in a football game against Texas Tech on Nov. 7, 1959, eventual UA graduate Ed Stuckenoff donned the Wildcat costume and became the first Wilbur in Arizona history. Wilma came along much like Eve as told in the Bible: out of a male body. Costume designers were attempting to make another Wilbur outfit, only to stumble upon the genius of the female wildcat form. Eventually, the two felines were set up on a blind date during a March 1, 1986 basketball game. Wilbur, sensing early on that Wilma was “the one,” proposed and eventually married Wilma on Nov. 21, 1986 in front of elated Wildcats during the annual football game against ASU. Today, you can catch the couple at most major UA athletic events and all over Tucson.

ARTS & LIFE | STUDENT DISCOUNTS

High prices are for the adults; take advantage of your student status BY AMBER SOLAND @DailyWildcat

If there’s anything college kids love more than no homework, it’s a discount. Every student at the University of Arizona gets a CatCard. It’s your university ID, your ticket to residence halls and recreation facilities all over campus and it can make charges to your bursar account. The CatCard can get you into many oncampus recreation facilities for free or a discounted price, but there are other places around town and on the internet where your student ID can get you discounts. “I actively look for those student discounts,” said Marilyn Mew, a senior and student worker at the UA Visitor’s Center. Even the simple act of attending a major institution like the UA can get you discounts on basic college-life essentials. “College is expensive and often timeconsuming,” Mew said. “Use up those student discounts.” Here is a short guide to places that make students’ lives a little easier.

FREE OR CHEAP FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT UA Museum of Art: Many UA museums offer free or discounted admission to students with their CatCard. The UA Museum of Art gives free admission to all students, college or otherwise, with a school ID or CatCard. Biosphere 2: Students have access to Biosphere 2, a unique laboratory and museum with seven model ecosystems built to simulate certain climates and environments, for only $10 with their CatCard. Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium: At the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium, students pay the kids’ price of just $12 for admission, which includes access to the science exhibits, mineral museum and tickets to one planetarium or laser show. “I spend a lot of time at the planetarium,” Mew said. “They have a really beautiful mineral collection and [I] just really love walking around in there.” Cinemark Theaters: According to the website, all students with a valid student ID can get discounts at Cinemark Movie Theaters around town,

CAT CARDS AREN’T JUST for building access, it can be used to receive discounts at establishments both on and off campus. From movie theaters to concert tickets, being a student gets you discounts around town.

including Cinemark Park Place 20, Century Theaters Tucson Marketplace and Century 20 El Con. The Loft Cinema: The Loft Cinema is a local nonprofit cinema dedicated to creating community through film, honoring the vision of filmmakers, celebrating ideas and promoting the appreciation and understanding of the art of film. For film fanatics, the Loft offers discounted membership for students. An annual fee of $50 buys all student members two free tickets every year, discounted admission to special events and film festivals, monthly free screenings and free popcorn.

UA BOOKSTORE AND ONLINE DEALS Adobe: For the creative and entrepreneurial students (and teachers) out there, Adobe Creative Cloud with all applications is free for students. Amazon: Amazon Student gives students a sixmonth free trial of Amazon Prime, with all

the benefits including free two-day shipping and Amazon Video. After the trial, students pay $6.49 per month, as opposed to the usual Amazon Prime membership fee of $12.99 per month. Apple: There’s a reason so many college students have Apple products — students get major discounts with Apple’s exclusive academic pricing. When students buy a Mac or iPad Pro for college, students can save up to $200 and get free Beats headphones. Apple accessories are also set at an education price and students get 20 percent off AppleCare for their Mac computers. Microsoft: The Microsoft Campus Agreement allows UA students to get a free subscription to Microsoft Office 365 for up to five PCs or mobile devices. This includes Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Excel and Skype. Spotify: Spotify offers college students Spotify Premium and Hulu for $4.99 per month, so students can watch Hulu’s abundant assortment of movies and TV shows and

listen to music ad-free anywhere in the city. Senior Nikky Adeniran, a student worker at the UA Visitor Center, takes advantage of this deal a lot. As a student, getting good deals on music and movies is a must. “It depends on the day, but I usually spend three to four hours watching TV,” Adeniran said. “I watch a lot of Hulu.” The deal is valid for 12 months and can be renewed as long as you’re in school.

SHOPPING DISCOUNTS Goodwill: Marilyn Mew buys and sells antiques on the side and makes a trip to the Goodwill at 300 N. Fourth Ave. once or twice every month to continue her work. That location is the best place for students to shop for hand-me-down clothing, books and household items because it gives students a 20 percent discount on everything with a valid student ID. “I take advantage of that student discount all the time; it’s probably the most helpful one I’ve found,” Mew said. The GoodThreads Boutique at 7366 N. Oracle Rd., where donated high-end and vintage clothing items make their temporary home, also offers a 20 percent discount for students.

ARTS & LIFE | EVENT GUIDE

Immerse yourself in community culture BY PASCAL ALBRIGHT @pascalloves

The University of Arizona prides itself on being a leader in the arts and student engagement, and, as a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, it is home to programs that are globally recognized for their diversity and inclusion. From theater and dance shows to club events and campus activities, UA faculty, staff and students encourage Wildcats to get involved and partake in these opportunities. “When a student graduates, that degree will be just one key line on the resume,” said Abra McAndrew, the assistant vice provost of student engagement. “The rest will come from student employment, student activities and organizations, research experiences, internships and other personal choices to get involved that make each student’s experience uniquely valuable.” The Daily Wildcat is here to help students learn about everything that is available to them during their time on campus, including ways they can enrich their student life experience.

ON CAMPUS: Campus Fairs Throughout the fall and spring semesters, the university holds a handful of campus fairs for students to get information about programs or future events and to discover involvement opportunities at the UA. Included are the Club Fair, the Study Abroad Fair and the Career Fair. The Club Fair is held Sept. 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the UA Mall and gives students the chance to get involved with others who share similar interests. The Study Abroad Fair, located in the Student Union Memorial Center Grand Ballroom Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., gives students a look at all the study abroad options available at the UA. UA Career Fairs are held throughout the semester and provide students with employment opportunities on-and offcampus. This builds hands-on experience and helps students earn some extra cash, according to the Office of Student Engagement and Career Development website. This fall, students can attend the Wildcat

Festivals

Another set of events the UA offers students and the community are annual festivals for disciplines ranging from music to literature and science. These events aim to engage the larger community with participation, education and outreach and includes the Tucson Festival of Books and Spring Fling. The Festival of Books, one of the biggest book festivals in the nation, is held on campus every spring and features authors, book signings, talks, music, Science City and other literary engagement opportunities. UA’s Spring Fling, one of the largest student-run carnivals in the nation, is one of the UA’s most popular events and is held every April on the UA Mall, according to the Spring Fling website. Spring Fling includes carnival rides, food booths, games and live entertainment for students and community members alike.

OFF CAMPUS: Fairs

One of the things Tucson is known for are its Second Saturdays, a community-oriented event that takes place the second Saturday of each month in downtown Tucson. Local vendors, musicians and food trucks line Congress Street and Scott Avenue with the sounds and smells of an event that should not be missed. Each month there is something new, including new restaurants and retailers downtown. Visit merchants for deals and enjoy outdoor music and more with fellow community members. Tucson also hosts the Fourth Avenue Street Fair, recognized as one of the premier community celebrations in the Southwest. It is held biannually on Fourth Avenue, located a few minutes from UA campus. The fair is a 48-year-old tradition, which draws more than 500,000 guests each year. It takes place December 7-9 and again March 22-24. It boasts over 300 international artisans, local entertainment and confections from more than 40 food purveyors, according to the event’s website. Other fair-like events include the Pima County Fair held in April, Tucson Meet Yourself held in October and the Tucson Folk Festival held in April.

Film

If fairs are too crowded for you, Tucson also hosts a monthly local short film showcase and contest called First Friday Shorts at the Loft Cinema. On the first Friday of each month, the contest, hosted by comedians Bridgitte Thum and Mike Stern, features submissions from all over town, including short films, documentaries and music videos — all under 15 minutes.

Miscellaneous

Tucson is also home to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in February, with nearly 4,000 trade companies converging in Tucson to sell their gems, minerals and fossils throughout January and February. Other events to look forward to are Cyclovia, (a city-wide bicycle festival held last April 8, though their next date is not yet determined), HOCO Fest (an event featuring more than 50 musical acts and a record fair held from Aug. 29 through Sept. 2), Dusk Music Festival (a twoday festival that features national and local musicians held Nov. 10 and 11) and the All Souls Procession in downtown Tucson, which celebrates the Day of the Dead on Nov. 4.

There IS a superior intelligence “out there” — and a loving one too. Your Creator wants you to acknowledge Him, and come to know Him and His ways. Don’t be deceived by evolutionism. All creation screams of intelligent design! The odds alone of DNA evolving are virtually nil. Evolutionism is the only “science” that denies the law of degeneration (entropy). God alone is the origin of life, and the true God wants/needs no one to take away life for Him – beware the “god” that does! God exists, and the Bible is His Word. What is unique about the Bible? For one thing, it is the only book with fulfilled prophecy (Isaiah 46:9-10). Test it yourself! For starters, try (current situation) Psalm 83 and Zechariah 12; (reformation of Israel after nearly 1900 years) Isaiah 66:8, Jeremiah 16:14-15, Jeremiah 31:710, Amos 9:9-15, Ezekiel 34:12-31, Ezekiel 36, and Ezekiel 37:21-22; (suffering/crucifixion of Christ) Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53; (future situation) Zechariah 13:7 - 14:21; (timing of the 2nd Coming of Christ) Joel 3:1-2, 2 Peter 3:8/ Hosea 5:14 - 6:2. “No one knows the day or the hour!” you cry? The Word says: 1Thessalonians 5:1-6. “Too hard to read and understand” you say? Try the KJV/Amplified/Complete Jewish parallel bible (biblegateway.com). “It’s all in how you interpret it” you say? The Bible, despite numerous transcribers over hundreds of years, is remarkably consistent/coherent and interprets itself. Our Creator is the actual author (2Peter 1:16-21). Beware of modern, liberal translations from “the higher critics” which seriously distort the Word! Finally, if there is a God, why is there so much evil? We have rejected God, and now see what it is like to live in a world where God has permitted us (temporarily) to rule ourselves. Give up your lusts, and come to your Creator and follow His ways (Jude 1:18-25). All that this world has to offer is as nothing compared to what He has in store for those who love Him (1Corinthians 2:9 , John 14:15) Isaiah 55:6-9!

Time Market

A look at some of our favorite eats

BY EDDIE CELAYA @reporterEddie

Finding a place to eat is part college life and here at The Daily Wildcat we thought we’d give you an upper hand by sharing some of our favorite eateries and why we love them

El Charro Café BY ALEC WHITE @AlecWhite_UA

Having rich Mexican roots, Tucson has some wellknown Mexican restaurants, none better known than El

I often find going out to eat just isn’t enough. Even if I order dessert, I’m always left wanting. Luckily, Time Market is more than a restaurant. It’s a top-shelf grocery store with fresh produce, bread baked daily and some of the best cheeses and deli meats to pair together for your charcuterie board. On top of all that, Time Market is home to my personal favorite pizza: the Bascaiola. Made with fresh mozzarella, juicy fennel sausage, onion and red pepper for some heat; it’s a pizza that requires an appreciation for spice. If it’s the slice of the day, you just hit the jackpot. The sandwiches are just as good. The Fried Chicken Sandwich (order it Tucson Hot for maximum heat) is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, smothered up in a brioche bun and topped with tomato, slaw and a pickle, of course. Time Market is located a short walk west on University Boulevard. While it isn’t expensive, it isn’t cheap either; most entrees will run you $10-$12 and pizzas are more. The bar serves coffee, tea and beer and there is free wi-fi available. Open daily, 7 a.m to 10 p.m.

Charro Café. I love Mexican food and I’m always looking for some great tacos or chips and salsa. Of all the places I’ve been to, El Charro has both. Located at 311 N. Court Ave., this downtown destination serves up authentic Mexican food ranging from house-made Ceviche to Vegan Tamale Stuffed Mushrooms to Nana’s Breakfast Tacos.

Kababeque Indian Grill BY MARISSA HEFFERNAN @_mheffernan

If you’re looking for a lot of delicious food (including vegan and vegetarian food!) at a great price, then Kababeque Indian Grill is the place to go. Located right on University Boulevard, it’s convenient and filling. My go-to order is a paneer pasanda and an order of veggie samosas. It comes with enough food for two meals if I’ve eaten breakfast, but only one meal’s worth if I was running late that morning. That comes out to about $13, which is a steal for how delicious it is. Of course, there are many meat options too, all cooked in traditional style. Lamb, chicken, goat, shrimp all feature as protein options and there are also six different types of naan bread to accent your meal with. The list goes on, with rolls, rice pudding, yogurt drinks and of course, kebabs. And if you’re sitting in bed right now, reading this and wishing you had some, but don’t want to brave the heat, fear not — Kababeque Indian Grill delivers! If I have to grab a meal on campus, this is my favorite. Whether I get my curry to go or sit in the restaurant and watch the Bollywood films they always play, I’ve never been disappointed with my meal and always look forward to the leftovers.

Lindy’s Diner The Buffalo Spot on 4th BY CYRUS NORCROSS @cyurs_norcross

BY PASCAL ALBRIGHT @pascalloves

If you take Fourth Avenue and put it on a plate, you would find that order at Lindy’s Diner on 4th. Located at 500 north Fourth Ave., it’s a short streetcar ride away from a good breakfast, lunch or dinner. The burgers are eccentric and include the Kush, served with raspberry preserves; The Big Bad Beefy, served with chili, cheddar, chipotle ranch and tater tots; or the Fat Bastard, served with fried egg, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo, served between two glazed honey buns. I however prefer to order the Joe Caesar salad with a side of fries. The salad is fine in itself but is topped with homemade croutons that will amaze your tastebuds. The fries are also a great addition for those who are fry fanatics. With great music playing as you enjoy your meal, Lindy’s Diner on 4th also has a full bar and features a Burger of the Month. Open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, this eatery has something for everyone. It may be a little ride or walk but you can stroll down Fourth Avenue after lunch or dinner and enjoy the downtown Tucson vibes.

Since the opening of The Buffalo Spot this past May, I find myself eating there more than any other restaurant on University Boulevard. Its menu includes standalone boneless and traditional wings, chicken tenders, BBQ ribs and salad. What I can’t get enough of: its Buffalo Fries. The meal consists of fries topped with boneless buffalo wings drizzled with their warm specialty sauce. The first time I bit into the Buffalo Fries, my world was filled with exhilaration and glee. I quickly ordered another small portion of Buffalo Fries JASMINE DEMERS | THE DAILY WILDCAT and found out: Beer is on tap! THE BUFFALO SPOT IN Main The beer on tap is your basic Gate Square is well-known for its Bud light, Blue Moon, Four Buffalo Fries. Peaks and a few others. With beer on tap and buffalo wings on point, the atmosphere of the place allows patrons to kick back and enjoy themselves. It’s where I’ll be, and I hope to see you there. I may even order you a beer.

Jimmy’s Pita and Poke BY DAVID SKINNER @davidwskinner_

I was privileged to live the first ten years of my life in Tokyo, so the combination of raw fish, white sticky rice, spicy mayo and fresh greens instantly sends me back to my childhood. Jimmy’s Pita and Poke, located at 175 E. University Blvd., has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to the UA community for 14 years. It is open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. every day and is my reward meal, cheat meal, stress meal and whenever-I-have-money meal.

UNDER-21 HANGOUTS

OVER-21 HOTSPOTS

BY PASCAL ALBRIGHT @pascalloves

BY JON RICE @JSCatReport87

While Tucson is a vibrant university town filled with events and things to do, a lot of fun can seem to be all about nightlife and drinking. For those who are under 21, this doesn’t have to limit your night out — there is still plenty to do to have fun, even if you can’t enjoy a drink in a local pub.

Cobra Arcade Bar Tucson According to its Facebook page, Cobra Arcade Bar offers free tokens for arcade gameplay to customers with every drink purchase on Tuesdays. Wednesday’s are Ladies’ nights with free tokens all night for the women, and there are $3 Michelada, mimosa & margaritas or $1 off all draft beer on Sundays.

Shopping Historic Fourth Avenue has several local shops that each offer their own personality to the vibrant neighborhood. These include Hippie Gypsy, a psychedelic-themed shop that will transport you to the 1960s, Pop Cycle, a recycle-themed shop that offers trinkets and fashion to its customers and the Rustic Candle Company, a candle boutique that sells locally-made candles and incense. There are also several thrift shops located near campus including Goodwill on Fourth Avenue, Tucson Thrift Shop on Fourth, Buffalo Exchange on Speedway Boulevard and Gypsy Emporium located downtown on Court Avenue. Coffee and Restaurants After shopping, you can enjoy a cup of coffee at one of the many cafés on and around campus. From Caffe Luce and Epic Cafe to Chocolate Iguana or Shot in the Dark Cafe, each coffee shop brings something unique to the community. If coffee’s not your thing, go for a bite at an eatery near campus, like Italian restaurant Caruso’s, Lindy’s on Fourth, Bison Witches, B-Line Cafe or even Chipotle.

The Funky Monk Fun times can be had any weekend at the Funky Monk. The Monk offers drink specials on Fridays and Saturdays. Each night features one part of the dynamic DJ-production duo known as Dibs & MGM. On “What The Funk Fridays”, you can find $4 Red Bull-Vodkas, $2 Coors Light, $1.50 select bottles and DJ Dibs playing your club favorites all night long. On “Solid Gold Saturdays,” you’ll find $3 Mexican beers, $4 margaritas, $5 Patron shots and MGM spinning the latest and greatest hits to dance to. Che’s Lounge Perhaps no bar captures the ethos and spirit of Fourth Avenue better than Che’s. Known to locals as a dive-bar-meets-music-venue, if you’re looking for cheap brews and good tunes, it’s a safe bet Che’s will have $1 PBR and a great local band on the outside patio.

IAN GREEN | THE DAILY WILDCAT

CHE’S LOUNGE IS ONE of an eclectic array of pubs and bars along Fourth Avenue.

Music and Events If you are in the mood for a live event, there are several music venues close to campus. Live bands also perform in coffee shops or on sidewalks downtown. You can also attend a movie at the Loft Cinema, located on Speedway, which shows classic movies along with new releases and special events. There are also Cinemark Theaters in town that show the latest releases and offer a student discount. There are several record shops in the Fourth Avenue/downtown area, including Wooden Tooth Records, Studio G Vinyl Records and Old Paint Records. All housing a mix of new and old music, there is bound to be something that sparks your interest. Miscellaneous If any of the above is not your cup of tea, there are also several amusement-specific spots around town. From participating in an escape room to going bowling, or even putting on your roller skates and heading to Skate Country, there are several places around town to enjoy a fun night with friends.

Hi-Fi Kitchen & Cocktails Get your Saturday night off to a fly start by cruising down to the junction of Fourth Avenue and Congress Street to see DJ Dibs perform in one of the hottest nightclubs to come out of Tempe and land in Tucson. Also a great spot to watch any major sporting event, even during the day on weekends, with almost more TV’s than you can handle. Be sure to head downtown on Thursday nights for “2-4-1” Thursdays. According to its Facebook page, you can buy two wells drinks for the price of one. Mr. Heads Art Gallery and Bar A chill local bar that doubles as an art gallery featuring work by local artists. Heads counts itself as a great place for cheap beer ($2 Pabst Blue Ribbon all day, every day), live local music and a laid-back atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for craft beer or just PBR, this is a place you should check out any night of the week.

BETHANY GUERRA | THE DAILY WILDCAT

FIVE ATHLETES TO WATCH

From fleet footed cross-country stars to the Real Deal himself, here’s a guide to the Wildcat athletes to know BY ROB KLEIFIELD @RobKelifield

BIG MAN ON CAMPUS KHALIL TATE – FOOTBALL

Nobody will attract more attention in the fall than Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate. The 2017 Maxwell Award semifinalist didn’t take the reins as Arizona’s starting quarterback until the fifth game of the season. As a true sophomore, he compiled 1,648 rushing yards and 1,834 passing yards. He also scored 26 touchdowns in 2017 and set a handful of program records. Despite initially having trouble cracking the starting lineup, Tate quickly proved to his doubters that he’s the best man for the job. With a new coach heading into the 2018 season, Tate and Wildcat fans have every reason to be excited. With an up-tempo offense designed around Tate’s big-play instincts, it will be hard to eliminate Arizona from Pac-12 contention. Since Tate’s record-setting, off-the-bench performance versus Colorado last season, the electric dual-threat has garnered his fair share of Heisman Trophy support. Although he slipped out of the conversation for the nation’s top award near the tail end of 2017, there’s no telling how high Tate can climb in his first full year as starting quarterback.

SIMON ASHER | THE DAILY WILDCAT

ARIZONA’S KHALIL TATE 14 jukes to avoild USC defenders during a game on Nov. 4, 2017 at Arizona Stadium. Multiple publications count Tate on their short-lists of Heisman Trophy candidates.

SCOOBY WRIGHT 2.0?

COLIN SCHOOLER – FOOTBALL

The comparisons between Scooby Wright and Colin Schooler don’t stop at undersized and under-recruited. Wright, who became Arizona’s sixth unanimous All-American in the wake of his 2014 campaign, first made his mark as a wide-eyed freshman. After earning All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honors and dazzling fans with sideline interceptions, Wright completed perhaps the greatest sophomore season in program history. Now it’s Schooler’s turn to post an equally incredible second act, or at least try to. In 2017, the 6-foot, 226-pound inside linebacker surpassed many of Wright’s freshman accolades. In fact, Schooler snatched the one piece of hardware missing from Wright’s trophy case — Pac12 Defensive Freshman of the Year. With cat-like reflexes and high-level play recognition, Schooler is primed to lead Arizona’s defense into the new era. As a freshman, he excelled at beating blockers to the point of attack and playing in the opposition’s backfield. As a sophomore, Schooler will look to utilize his experience and increased attributes to his advantage. Spending his first full offseason under the watchful eyes of Arizona’s strength and conditioning coaches will certainly reap rewards. Schooler’s stature might not be intimidating, but the hammer he wields between tackles makes up for any shortcomings.

DEFENSIVE DYNAMO

MORGAN MCGARRY – SOCCER

Some athletes fold when they’re challenged to compete outside their comfort zone. That’s not what happened with Arizona redshirt junior midfielder Morgan McGarry when coaches moved her to the backline. McGarry transitioned to a defensive role in 2017 after playing sparingly the season prior. Although she was a highly touted player at the prep level, an ACL injury during her senior year prevented her from making an immediate impact for the Wildcats. After redshirting in 2015, McGarry made just four appearances in 2016. In the offseason, coaches configured a lineup that featured McGarry in a new role — one that would hopefully better suit her. Rather than pouting over a position change, McGarry took advantage of the fresh start. Her performance on the field noticeably improved. She started and played every match, compiling 1,892 minutes along Arizona’s backline. Her consistency on the field and willingness to compete at a new position was rewarded at the conclusion of the season. McGarry was named to the 2017 All-Pac-12 Second Team and earned 2017 Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention honors.

THE TASMANIAN DAVILA

HUNTER DAVILA – CROSS COUNTRY

Hunter Davila is a senior and over the last three years he has blossomed into a formidable force in the cross country realm. In 2017, he got off to a sizzling start, achieving first place in the 6k at the Dave Murray Invitational. In October, Davila competed at the Adidas DI Pre-Nationals. He struggled to maintain a similar pace throughout the rest of the season, but, in doing so, demonstrated a resiliency to never give up. Davila kicked off his participation in track and field’s 2018 outdoor season at the Larry Wieczorek Invitational in January, submitting a time of 8:34.93 in the 3,000-meter race, earning an eighth place finish. Over the next several months, Davila balanced out several poor results with a pair of first-place finishes. Heading into the final stages of his XC career, teammates and coaches alike expect Davila to finish strong. Fine-tuning his racing mechanics and working hard to increase his durability have been Davila’s primary points of focus over the summer. He is expected to lead the way for the men’s team in 2018.

Jennie Baragar-Petrash calls Winnipeg, Canada home, but every fall she grows fonder of the desert. In 2016, Baragar-Petrash was one of Arizona XC’s bright spots. She shined for the Wildcats, competing in six events and finishing top-five among her teammates in each one. She wasn’t just ahead of the sport’s other top freshman in 2016, she was also holding her own against the rest of the pack, finishing top-10 twice. As a sophomore, Baragar-Petrash continued to improve her marks. A fourth place finish at the Dave Murray Invitational and a top-30 placing at the NCAA Division I West Region Cross Country Championships highlighted her 2017 campaign. Although Baragar-Petrash trailed seniors Claire Green and Addi Zerrenner in the 6,000-meter event, she still managed to shave more than a minute off her freshman personal record. She progressed leaps and bounds between her freshman and sophomore seasons. Now, fully equipped to handle the pressures of being an upperclassman, she will take aim at All-American status. Baragar-Petrash has recently been excelling, posting top-five finishes in six outings from March 17 through April 28.

Get to know the Arizona coaches in charge this fall BY AMIT SYAL @ASyal21

The fall season is undoubtedly an amazing time in Tucson. From new beginnings in college to the start of a plethora of sports seasons, the fall semester does not disappoint. Here’s a guide to some of University of Arizona’s top head coaches, who will hopefully lead teams to victory this fall. FOOTBALL: KEVIN SUMLIN At the start of the new year, Arizona Athletics made its hiring of head football coach Kevin Sumlin official, to the excitement of Arizona fans everywhere. Sumlin is the former head coach of Texas A&M, where he led the program for six seasons. Sumlin will replace Rich Rodriguez, who was released from Arizona Athletics earlier this year. He will join an Arizona football team led by Khalil Tate, who threw 1,591 yards and ran 1,411 as a sophomore in 2017. Current university president, Dr. Robert Robbins, was impressed by Sumlin’s ability to stay calm and collected at all times, especially during press conferences he shared in a recent sit down interview with the Tucson Star.

The home opener for Arizona football is scheduled for Sept. 1, 2018 against Brigham Young University. Coming off a 7-6 record, UA aims to improve its record and regain control of the state after dropping the Territorial Cup game 42-30 this past season against ASU. MEN’S BASKETBALL: SEAN MILLER After gaining fame as one of the nations best young basketball coaches during his time at Xavier University, Sean Miller has cemented his place among the top coaches in college basketball during his time in Tucson.

VOLLEYBALL: DAVE RUBIO Arizona volleyball coach Dave Rubio enters his twenty-seventh season as the head of the program. In 26 seasons at the helm of the Arizona program, Rubio has led the Wildcats to 19 NCAA Tournament appearances, which have included a trip to the Final Four, four Elite Eight appearances and eight trips to the Sweet 16, most recently in 2016. Rubio has been able to change Arizona volleyball for the better. As the head coach, he has turned the program into one that demands conference and national attention.

Harvey took the reins of the program during the 2002-03 season. James Li enters his fifteenth year as the head coach of the Wildcat cross country team, amassing over 30 conference championships, 12 national championships and 167 All-Americans during his illustrious career

Last season Amato led the Wildcats to an 11-54 record (7-2-2 Pac-12) for a fourth-place finish in the conference.

SPORTS | GAME DAY TRADITIONS

Gamedays in Tucson: What to expect BY CORY KENNEDY @CoryKennedy_DW

wellness

For sports fans, nothing brings more excitement than game day. Waking up and knowing your favorite team is scheduled to play brings excitement to the community as they all gather in support. One way fans of all ages unite is through tailgating. Tailgating before games is a tradition that is practiced every year before sporting events around the country. At the University of Arizona, tailgates are held on the Mall, which is within walking distance of Arizona Stadium. Whether it’s tossing the football around, grilling some food or hanging out with friends and family outside the stadium, UA fans find ways to come together before the Wildcats play under the lights on Saturday. But what you might not know is that one of the biggest and most attended tailgates of UA athletics happens before game day tailgates. The party starts a day before game day with Bear Down Fridays. Bear Down Friday is a chance for UA fans to celebrate the Wildcats on University Boulevard. The UA cheer and band teams perform, and the celebration ends with a pep rally located on a stage on the corner of

Tyndall and University. Athletic director Dave Heeke will hype up the crowd, typically alongside a special guest. New head coach Kevin Sumlin may even get in on the fun this year. Bear Down Fridays send everyone home in good spirits that carry over into the next day. When game day arrives, fans file onto the Mall to get ready for football games. People, food, drinks, even cars fill the area to celebrate before the game starts. Mascots Wilbur and Wilma Wilcat are always out and about, posing for pictures with fans young and old. One of the biggest traditions before UA football games is the Wildcat Walk. Football players get dropped off by team buses near the stadium and walk through the buzzing crowds to the stadium entrance. Football players, coaches and the UA cheer team walk through a sea of fans wearing red and blue all the way to the stadium about two hours before kickoff. The Wildcat Walk brings fans close to UA athletes both literally and figuratively. An hour before the game is set to start, the doors open to the Arizona Stadium and fans begin to pile in. Made up mostly of studentst rushing to get the best seat in the ZonaZoo. The bars and restaurants located along

University Boulevard act as hot spots for fans to go to before games as well. While tailgating isn’t as big before UA basketball games, fans can be seen all over campus getting ready for the opening kick off. For those who weren’t able to get tickets to the game, restaurants such as Illegal Pete’s,

No Anchovies, the Frog and Firkin and Gentle Ben’s on University Boulevard are home to hundreds of additional UA fans on game day. While the big event that people associate college football season with is tailgating, there’s always a new way for students and fans to cheer on their Arizona Wildcats.

COMMENTARY | ZONAZOO

ZonaZoo: It’s more than just showing up OPINION

BY MAX COHEN @MaxCohen_DW

W

hat does it mean to be a member of the ZonaZoo? Let’s start by saying what being a member of the ZonaZoo doesn’t mean. It does not mean being a part of some elite student section that has recognition from an online poll. It doesn’t mean going to games to snap a pic for social media. It’s not an excuse to tailgate all day on game days because the Pac-12 schedules the University of Arizona seemingly only night games. Being a member of the student section means being a part of something bigger than simply being a fan. It’s something bigger than being a member of the University of Arizona community. It’s a chance for thousands of Arizona students to join together as one to try to make an impact on the game and cheer on their student-athlete peers. The ZonaZoo is the students’ means of doing so. Being a member of the Zoo means showing up to games early to cheer on the HEATHER NEWBERRY | THE DAILY WILDCAT football team during warmups and yelling ARIZONA FANS CHEER ON the Wildcats in ZonaZoo during their game against Houston on Sept. 9 at Arizona Stadium.

SPORTS | COMMENTARY: MEN’S BASKETBALL

A TRUE LOVE STORY: TUCSON AND ARIZONA MEN’S BASKETBALL BY DAVID SKINNER @DavidWSkinner_

Tucson is known for many things: its Hispanic and Native American cultures, beautiful sunsets, snarky Family Guy references and Wildcat basketball. The former westernmost confederate outpost during the Civil War is now known for the basketball outpost that is located on the University of Arizona campus, which over the last forty years has established itself as one of the winningest programs in NCAA history. From the early days of Fred Snowden, when he laid the foundation in the 70s, to Lute Olson, who took the program into the stratosphere, UA basketball has quite a history. Sean Miller has held the reigns for almost a decade now and has led multiple Arizona teams to the cusp of Final Four glory, while also turning Arizona into an NBA draft factory, producing five lottery picks, including the top pick in this year’s draft, Deandre Ayton. Tucson has seen the blooming success that is Arizona Basketball over the last couple of decades and has taken it in like

its only child. With no professional teams in Tucson, and with the minor league team recently leaving town, the Wildcats are the biggest and brightest show in the county, drawing over 14,000 fans on average every home game. The ‘Cats are as much a part of Tucson as its mountainous backdrop. The team has been able to splice itself into this southwestern city’s DNA in way that only Sonoran hotdogs, Frida and John Wayne have. In four decades, Tucson has grown from Yuma’s older brother to Phoenix’s little brother, more than doubling in size from 1972 to 2015. It has gone from just under 400,000 residents in the metropolitan region to just a hair above a million. And with the city’s growth, the fervor for its basketball team has grown in parallel. The modern-day mission that Tucsonans flock to for sanctuary and entertainment has been renovated into a state-of-the-art arena, a visible symbol to long-time locals as to how far the program has come, and where it is going. The Arizona basketball program is the perfect example of natural growth that has

been gracing Tucson for years. It’s shown the public how it has transitioned from being the charming Cinderella team to a

consistent and dangerous program, and finally to one of the nations most feared and respected teams.
