Don’t fear new experiences Student body president Matt Lubisich shares what he has learned during his time at UA


ear Wildcats, As I reflect on my three years at the University of Arizona and begin preparing for my senior year, I’m reminiscing on the memories and experiences I’ve had. These past few years have been the best of my life, and I can attribute all of that to getting involved early on campus. Being a Wildcat is much more than just attending classes- it’s a total experience that each student makes their own through clubs, new friends, jobs, internships and much more. I know it can be a bit overwhelming thinking about involvement as you start in the Fall, so I have included advice below on getting involved on campus. 1. Challenge yourself to try new things Being in college is a bank of new

experiences and opportunities. You’ll be so grateful for these experiences and they will lead you to want to be more involved. 2. Attend the club fair Our student body boasts an impressive 600+ clubs on campus from the “Corndog Appreciation Club” to professional organizations that will grant you networking opportunities and practical experience. The club fair is during the first week of school, but if you can’t wait to see all of the clubs the UA has to offer, check out InvolveUA online. 3. Go Greek Greek life is a huge part of our campus and ranges from traditional panhellenic sororities and IFC fraternities to service, professional and cultural organizations. Visit for more information. 4. Visit and participate with the cultural centers on campus There are nine cultural centers that give students a home and a way to learn more and get in touch with either their own cultures, or others. 5. Get involved in your residence halls If you are living on campus, residence halls are the most convenient place to make friends and get to know the resident assistants and staff in your hall. If you are looking for a leadership position in walking distance from your bedroom, attend hall council meetings and run for a position. 6. Play an intramural sport Whether you were a starting


player on your varsity team, or have never played before, the campus recreation center has plenty of opportunities to stay active and have fun! 7. Check out major-specific opportunities Always look at the weekly bulletins sent out by your advisors and professors, and regularly look at your department’s website. Don’t

be afraid to be proactive. Ask about ways to get more engaged within your disciplines in class or your advisement appointments. Most importantly, enjoy your time as a Wildcat, and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and try new things. That is the Wildcat way, after all!

A brief history of Wildcat Country BY EDDIE CELAYA @DailyWildcat


1885 classes began


1891 Old Main construction completed


1901 school colors chosen

Whether you’re a student at UA or just someone curious and strolling around campus, here is a short primer on the people, places and things that make the UA unique.

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 (after whom the McKale Center is named) 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 at the university that, after his death, his body lay 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 UA lineman Martin Gentry, who was a member of that 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.’”

1910 1913 marching band began full time



1921 first dorms built 1926 origins of “Bear Down” and alma mater

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 decidely more humble. 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 out due to the start of World War II, and 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 USS Arizona. The nearly 2,000-pound bell, still found on the Unions’ fourth floor, is rung seven times the third Wednesday of the month at 12:07 p.m. In 2003, after two full years of

rennovation and nearly doubling its square footage, the Union reopened, sporting a new design inspired by the profile of the states’ namesake battleship. The Union, then, serves as a living memorial to the men and women who sereved and gave their life for their country.

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 named Rufus Arizona, named for the schools 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 November 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 in the biblical story of Genesis: 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 November 21, 1986 in front of elated Wildcats during the annual football game with ASU. Today, you can catch the couple at most major UA athletic events and all over Tucson.

Come fall in love with classics such as “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl, “Part of Your World” and more!

The Tony and Grammy Award-winning inspiring true story of Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

The Tony Award -winning Broadway musical from the creators of The Sound of Music and South Pacific is delighting audiences with its contemporary take on the classic tale. This lush production features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and all the moments you love – the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more – plus some surprising new twists!

The winner of’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine. Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan.

The international percussion sensation is explosive, inventive, provocative, witty, and utterly unique—an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps – to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms.

The New York Times calls it “the best musical of this century.” The Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.” Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show calls it “Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal.” It’s The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award®-winning Best Musical.

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® -winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production.

1983 Lute Olson begins coaching

BASKETBALL Let’s be honest: If you’re from outof-state, hail from Phoenix or have alumni parents, your first exposure to UA was through sports. Specifically — and this is a wild(cat) guess — Arizona basketball. It’s as good a place as any to dive into UA athletics. While the UA had successful teams in the 1950s under Fred Enke, Tucson’s basketball obsession began with one man: Lute Olson. From 1983 through 2006, the last full season he coached, Olson compiled

a record of 589-187 at Arizona, a winning percentage of better than 75 percent. Future NBA stars such as Steve Kerr, Damon Stoudamire, Richard Jefferson and Andre Iguodala made their names here under Olson. In 1997, during the greatest single season in UA athletics history, Olson and his team brought home the NCAA Division I Basketball Championship, beating Rick Pitino’s Kentucky Wildcats in overtime 83-79. He would reach the championship again in 2001,

losing in somewhat controversial fashion to Mike Krzyzewski and his Duke Blue Devils. Olson’s effect on the UA and Tucson is impossible to overstate. Before Olson, UA teams were lucky to draw a thousand fans to McKale Center. Since 1985, every game in the nearly 14,000-seat basketball arena has been sold out. The only description of Olson that truly sums up his influence in the Old Pueblo comes from former NBA center

and current ESPN commentator Bill Walton: “The man brought water to the desert.” Now, Sean Miller has taken the mantle of “most important coach on campus.” Coming off a disappointing loss to Xavier University in last year’s Sweet 16, Miller is poised to finally make his first trip to the Final Four with the best recruiting class of his career and the top class in the country.

In the 1998 Culligan Holiday Bowl under then-coach Dick Tomey, Arizona upset Nebraska of the Big12 to finish the season 12-1. They would finish the season ranked fourth nationally. More recently, under current coach Rich Rodriguez, the ‘Cats finished first

in the Pac-12 South and represented the conference in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl. After a tough 2016 season — made a little easier by thrashing ASU in a final game — the Wildcats enter this season hopeful and ready.

FOOTBALL While it doesn’t get quite the attention of its spherical-ball cousin, UA football has quite the long, interesting history. Starting play in 1889 under the moniker “the Varsity,” the team finished with a 1-1-1 record (yes, you could tie in college then). In 1914, following a tough loss to

Occidental College in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Times correspondent Bill Henry, wrote “the Arizona men showed the fight of wildcats.” From there, the name stuck. During the modern era, the Wildcats have known both remarkable success and forgettable seasons.

What makes Tucson a great science city? A number of unique features and attributes make Tucson a city uniquely positioned to offer cutting-edge scientific research. From environment to economics, here they are BY NICOLE MORIN @nm_dailywildcat

As the UA has grown, Tucson’s reputation as a “science city” has grown too, with major discoveries and innovations occurring regularly. Some of the area’s science-landscape highlights include the UA Tech park, which works with inventors and entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to market, the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, considered one of the best in the world and the Raytheon Company, one of the top employers in the city and a significant defense contractor. However, the placement of these institutions here begs a fundamental question: Why Tucson? What is it about the region that makes it a place conducive to research and innovation, whether it be in technology, geology, medicine or astronomy? Part of the answer has to do with Tucson’s desert, surrounding the city with an arid environment. In addition, the city has “inviting skies which are wide open, and ... fascinating plant and animal life,” according to Anthony Muscat, department chair of Chemical and Environmental Engineering. “Whoever thought that the Colorado River Toad could live in the desert and come out to eat and breed only when it rains in the summer?” Muscat asked. Local flora and fauna like the unusual amphibian have spawned a wide range of environmental studies within the area. Other aspects contributing to Tucson’s reputation for science and innovation are its clear skies and high mountains, which allow researchers to observe the stars and learn more about our solar system. Steward Observatory, within the Department of Astronomy at the UA, is one location taking advantage of these environmental attributes, allowing researchers to m aintain telescopes at five different mountaintops. “The science and research we do evolved in part because of the unique location we are. For astronomy, we have very tall mountains that have low humidity and are great places for telescopes,” said Bruce Wright, associate vice president of Tech Parks Arizona. “We are in an arid region of the world, so we have become very skillful at developing arid land agriculture

and technology and water technology.” However, while the environment plays an important role, much of Tucson’s strength as a city of science and innovation also comes from the people living here and the culture they create. “I find that Tucson is science-friendly. Just look at how many people come to the lecture series sponsored by the College of Science at the University of Arizona, or go out on the mall to view an astronomical event through a telescope or take part in a maker event or go and visit the Desert Museum,” Muscat said. Researchers in the area also contribute to the science-friendly culture, using the area as a base for explorations into numerous topics of study and making the effort to properly educate the public. Some sciences are more influenced by this culture than others. “For engineering, I don’t really think it is the geography. It is more the long history of outstanding faculty and students and staff that drive our success,” said Jeffrey Goldberg, dean of the College of Engineering. “It is all about the people that are creative, hardworking, and fun to be around.” There are several other aspects of Tucson that create a science-friendly atmosphere, such as military bases and the tech companies who choose Tucson as home for their research and development. Besides Raytheon, companies such as Paragon, Universal Avionics and Accelerate Diagnostics all work in the Tucson area and offer opportunities for UA students, as will be demonstrated at the annual Design Day showcase in early 2018. These companies lure business and technology to Tucson and contribute to its reputation. All of this seems to converge at the UA, which several people believe to be partially responsible for the popularity and prevalence of science in Tucson. “The single best answer to your question about what makes Tucson so science-friendly is the presence of the University of Arizona. From its beginnings, it was particularly strong in the fields of anthropology/archaeology, astronomy, and mining geology and engineering,” said Jonathan Mabry, City of Tucson Historic Preservation Officer. Since its establishment in 1885 as Arizona’s

first university, the UA has crushed boundaries and made astronomical advances in a range of scientific fields. “The University has really been the spark or the catalyst for our growth as a technology community,” Wright said, citing the College of Optical Sciences as an example of this growth. The college’s development and research spawned an industry around optics, with Tucson at the center. Current STEM-minded individuals calling Tucson home hope that students will continue exploring and studying science both within the area and beyond. There is a shortage of scientists in the United States, and several fields are waiting for new blood to fill the ranks. Muscat gives presentations on science and engineering to students in K-12 in hopes of inspiring a student to pursue a career in STEM. “The goal is the same: to get a girl or boy to think that they could become a scientist or engineer because it is a lot of fun,” Muscat said. Tech Parks Arizona also hopes to encourage middle school students to learn more about

science. Racing the Sun, a solar go-cart competition where students build and race their own go-carts, is one event that engages middle schoolers and teaches them skills applicable to STEM fields. By beginning at the UA, professors and researchers alike agree that undergraduates are taking an excellent first step on their journey to a career in the sciences. “There are great careers for students in these STEM areas. The University of Arizona is a top rate school, and there are a number of programs that can help students not only get their degree but move into industry and professional ranks,” Wright said. In short, becoming a “science city” isn’t easy, but Tucson has managed to do so through a combination of unique environmental conditions, dedicated researchers, a sciencefriendly population and the presence of the UA. Luckily for students, this means that they will have a great many opportunities to make a mark in the city’s long-standing history of science and innovation.

For all freshmen (and others who’ve elected to live on campus), you’ll be spending the bulk of your time in one of the UA’s 23 residence halls. Here is a look at some of the newest and oldest dorms.

some similarities: both are multiplebuilding halls built around a central courtyard, and both sport a custom website that allows for residents to track the halls overall water and energy usage. Arbol is larger, with room for upward of 700 residents. Likins is located right off Highland Avenue, so it’s closer

front entrances. Maricopa, the oldest dorm on campus, is the only all-women hall on campus. Refurbished in 1992, the hall’s entry way sports a grand piano and period-specific crystal chandeliers.

Flores then proceeded to the fourth floor, and entered a lecture hall filled with students taking a test. He spoke immediately to professor Barbara Monroe, then shot her and fellow professor Cheryl McGaffic. Flores yelled for the students to leave before turning the gun on himself. A subsequent investigation found

that Flores had failed a recent nursing class and was struggling personally and academically. The Nursing Faculty Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established in 2003 to honor the legacy of the three professors. The endowment provides financial assistance, in perpetuity, to “undergraduate nursing students who have demonstrated academic excellence.”

TRAGEDY Although UA can seem the ideal vision of a college campus, tragedy has befallen the community on more than one occasion. On Sept. 5, 2007, Galareka Harrison fatally stabbed her roommate, Mia Henderson, in their Graham-Greenlee dorm room. Henderson, who had suspected Harrison of stealing her UA ID, checks and nearly $500, filled a report with police on Aug. 31, saying she didn’t feel comfortable in the

same room as Harrison. However, Henderson returned the night of her death to confront Harrison and was stabbed 23 times. To evade police, Harrison also inflicted wounds on herself and lied repeatedly during questioning. She was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Concert venues highlight the city’s music scene


Tucson’s live music scene is quite eclectic, with rock, alternative, country and hip-hop among the genres represented. Several venues regularly sell out shows for local artists as well as national acts who make a point of adding Tucson to their tours. Incoming students can look forward to seeing the many different artists and bands that contribute to Tucson’s ever-growing music culture and community. Rialto Theatre: 318 E. Congress St. The Rialto Theatre is located in the center of downtown. Among UA students, this refurbished venue is a popular spot for catching a variety of local artists and touring bands. Many genres of music are performed here, so there’s something for everyone. Located across the street from Hotel Congress, the Rialto is at the heart of the metro Tucson’s nightlife every day of the week. Standing general admission is the rule, but there is some chair seating above in the balcony. Drinks are available during most shows. Becca Hammen, who works in the box office at the Rialto, said that self-expression for visual artists is also one of the things that makes this venue special. The Rialto showcases hand-painted murals on the sides of the building which represent the talent of local artists. “We serve as a venue for events or fairs so it’s really

diverse, it’s really versatile and it does showcase local art as well as art from big cities,” Hammen added. Some concerts to look forward to at the Rialto are 2 Chainz, Fleet Foxes, DJ Quik + Scarface: The Live Experience, The CTRL Tour – SZA, Natalia Lafourcade, Tove Lo and Phil Vassar. 191 Toole: 191 E. Toole Ave. Named after its street address, 191 Toole is a non-profit venue where people of all ages can enjoy live shows, festivals and local acts year-round. This smaller space is the sister venue to the Rialto Theatre. “It’s basically the Rialto Theatre for smaller shows,” Hammen said of 191 Toole. According to her, this venue shares the same philosophy of self-expression as the Rialto. Several underground acts perform here, providing a unique music experience for those looking for something different in the downtown area. Some concerts to look forward to at 191 Toole include David Cook, Electric Guest, Luke Pell, Chelsea Wolfe and Ty Segall. The Rock: 136 N. Park Ave. The Rock is a long-standing music hub in Tucson that has hosted numerous hard rock, metal, punk and pop acts over the years, and recently begun hosting acts from additional genres. Located a few blocks south of the UA campus, this small venue continues to welcome local, national and international acts. The Rock offers shows for all ages with a separate 21+ bar area.


LOCAL TUCSON BAND, CALEXICO, peforms at the Dusk Music Festival on Oct. 22, 2016.

The small size of this staple concert venue gives incoming students the chance to be as close as possible to the artists that perform here. According to the owner Kent Van Stelle, this intimate, up-close and personal setting is what makes the Rock different from other venues. The Rock’s concert history is also something that the venue is known for. Van Stelle said that thousands of worldfamous acts have performed here, including Gwen Stefani, The Goo Goo Dolls and Korn.

We all gotta live somewhere, right? OPINION



iguring out where you want to live in college requires a lot of weighing the pros and cons. Should you live on campus where everyone is or should you live off campus where you can enjoy some privacy? Although I’ve never lived on campus, I always wondered what it would be like and if I’d enjoy it. After thinking about it, I can say with certainty that off-campus living is the way for me. Living off campus, you’re able to experience adulthood way more than you would if you lived on campus. You pay a monthly rent rather than having your dorm included in your tuition at the beginning of the semester. Searching for an apartment can be stressful; it takes research to figure out what will fit into your college student budget, what kind of shops are around, how close it is to campus and if the neighborhood is safe — but there’s no need to get too stressed about this. Looking for your new home can be fun. It gives you an opportunity to explore Tucson. It can help you decide what part of the city you like and where you want to be based. You can see what kind of layouts and amenities you prefer, which will help you find a new home once you graduate as well. One of my favorite perks of living off campus is all about cooking. Instead of sharing a community kitchen with others in the dorm, you can have your own kitchen. This is a huge plus because you can shop for as much food as you need and have storage enough for all of it. You’re also more likely to cook more homemade meals and pack lunches rather than eating out at the student union every night, helping to lower your overall costs. If you tend towards introversion, finding an apartment a good distance away from campus can suit you. You could find yourself in a quiet neighborhood and be around a diverse community. I live approximately six miles away from campus. Every day I interact with a variety of people, and most of them aren’t college students.

'Living on campus can be limiting if all you know is what's at the UA' Being off campus, I’ve also been able to participate in unique community events, surrounded by crowds often with different perspectives from those of my classmates. I think that living on campus can be limiting if all you know is what’s at the UA. If you want to experience things outside of campus, it can be challenging because you’re knowledge of community events is more restricted to those pertaining to the college. I think being in an apartment off campus also helps you to mature. You live on your own and you don’t have people around holding your hand. Not only do you learn responsibility while maintaining an apartment, you also create a life for yourself. You never know, maybe you’ll live in the apartment or house even after you graduate from the UA. Living off campus doesn’t mean you have to live far from campus. The UA Housing and Residence Life has a website that lists current apartments available for rent and room mate searches. Some popular apartment options that the site offers are Sol y Luna Apartments, NorthPointe Student Apartments, and The Ranch at Star Pass. A huge benefit of living in a student apartment is that most of them have shuttles that will take you from the complex to campus. You don’t have to stress about finding parking and you could meet other students who live around you. I love living off campus, and I wouldn’t change this decision because I enjoy being a good distance from the crowded dorm scene. If you enjoy some peace away from school, then living off campus is the best option for you.


BY ALEC SCOTT @DailyWildcat


college is much more than the classrooms amenities provided to the students; it’s also the culture and atmosphere that is encouraged and enjoyed by the faculty and student body alike. More than a place to be educated, it’s a place to explore life paths you didn’t entertain before, as well as discover opportunities that would otherwise not be experienced. Dorm life offers a sense of structure and community to incoming freshmen and transfer students that off-campus living does not. The college experience allows students who wish to continue their post-high school education to do more than simply confirm and support their worldview; it instead challenges and expands that worldview by allowing for opportunities to challenge your comfort zone. You enter a world that may be as constructive as it is frightening to enter. Often dorm life is looked down upon in favor of immediately moving off campus in pursuit of an entirely new level of liberty that living by oneself can offer — but exploring and engaging in the residential life on campus, even if for a short time, is an integral part of the college experience. Living with a roommate who you have no prior relationship with allows you to reflect not only the way people can be different, but also how well you can facilitate relationship with others. My personal experience with campus living has made me realize just how important this step is while going through the complicated self-discovery experience that college fosters. I transferred from the University of Denver to the UA this spring semester, and the transition between school cultures was made easier by total immersion in my new environment. Rather than feeling like a foreign element in the massive campus I found when I arrived, my residency in the historic district with people who experienced similar anxieties and confusions made me feel at home almost immediately.

'Dorm life offers a sense of structure and community' Had I not lived on campus, I wouldn’t have been able to feel at home in my new school so quickly, where classes were held in buildings I could hardly spell, let alone point out on a map. I was able to find common ground based around a shared experience with those around me. I could at once feel welcome on the campus I had just weeks before felt intimidated by. It was living on campus at my first college that made me realize it was not the right school at the time, and it was living on campus here in Arizona that convinced me I had made the right choice to switch. I could place myself in relation to the activity and culture of the university without losing my sense of self in it. This gave me the confidence to branch out and experience an entirely new world that was set right in front of me. Dorm life opens your comfort zone wide enough to accept the differences between you and your fellow students, who may be going through the same self-doubting race to the finish line you are. As a transfer student, I was also able to see the important role of immersion in campus life on my sense of place. Just close proximity to events at the Student Union Memorial Center inspired me to walk down and get free food, and even the subtle background information offered by fliers let me know which clubs were planning meetings or making moves to change campus life. If living on campus can be seen as the first step of the college experience, living off campus can certainly be seen as the second — although it’s a step that must be made when you are ready — jumping prematurely from the dorms can leave the relationship between yourself and your fellow student body underdeveloped. Where do you fit in, and why are you here? You may find it easier to answer these questions when experiencing it with those just as confused as you are, and who may have opinions and perspectives that never would have been exposed to you otherwise. In short, I found my decision to live on campus an integral step of my college life, and I feel all the more confident for having made the jump into something at first new and frightening. By going through it as others around tackled similar issues, I felt as if I was not just a student of the classes I was registered for, but a student of the university itself.

THE GATEWAY APARTMENT HOMES, located on Broadway Boulevard east of Shannon Road, displays their "We Heart Students" banner. Students who transition to off-campus housing can look forward to many different apartment options surrounding the UA campus.

Resource center offers homes away from campus BY DAVID PUJOL @DailyWildcat

Leaving home for college and gaining independence is an important milestone that presents many choices. For students who choose to make the transition from living on-campus in dorms to off-campus in an apartment or a house, keep the following tips in mind. Since the UA keeps climbing the list of top colleges in the country, student housing is booming in Tucson. Some of the most popular housing locations are Campus Crossings, The Ranch, North Pointe, Gateway at Tucson, The Cadence, The Ledges and The Retreat. Every semester the UA hosts a housing fair held on the Mall in front of Old Main to give students the right information to find the place that suits them best. One resource is the UA’s office of Off-Campus Housing. It compares different types of student-housing, which is the number one source when searching for potential places to live. Off-Campus Housing works to connect students to the right resources for their next housing situation. “Basically what we do for off campus housing is we are primarily helping students who are moving out of the dorms,” said Dustin Long, a senior studying Care, Health and Society and office coordinator of Off-Campus Housing. “If they are looking for any places to live for the upcoming school year we’re their first point of contact.” Long said that a lot of times students don’t know where to turn, especially when looking for different places to live off-campus. Off-campus

housing helps students narrow things down and provide them with useful information. “We are going to be the people who have ties already with properties and communities that we can refer the students to,” Long said. Students who move out of the dorms and sign housing contracts are faced with a brand new monthly expense: utilities. Several student housing apartments offer some utilities included in the rent, but almost every housing option requires tenants to pay for the electricity they use. In addition to included utilities, many student housing apartments offer individual leases, or “by-the-bed” leasing. This can be extremely valuable to your own financial well-being, even if you love and trust your roommates. “When students come here with roommates from student-housing, we explain that they are financially responsible as one,” said Yanil Martinez, a leasing specialist with Avilla Homes. “If their roommates skips out or is late on rent, the late fee is applied to the home, not to the specific person. We do not get involved with holding one person accountable as everyone in the home is under one legal contract.” Martinez said that working with students who rent together is always a different situation than single-family renters. Student housing allows students to have the freedom to be solely responsible for themselves, and if a roommate fails to pay rent it does not affect anyone but that person. The contracts and leases are specifically designed to be sole and separate for students

Keep an eye out for these players on campus Arizona’s fall sports are ramping up to begin soon. Here are some of the athletes from each sport that fans should familiarize themselves with and watch for on game day BY ALEC WHITE @AlecWhite_UA

CARLOS VILLARREAL (REDSHIRT JUNIOR) – MENS CROSS COUNTRY Carlos Villarreal is looking to make big strides in his third season. The winner of the 2014 Gatorade Cross Country Runner of the Year in Arizona redshirted his freshman year, and a recovery from a knee injury slowed him down in 2016. However, Villarreal had a promising track and field season in the spring, so a breakout cross country performance is certainly in the cards.

DEMETRIUS FLANNIGAN-FOWLES, SAFETY (JUNIOR) – FOOTBALL In a season that was painful to endure, safety Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles turned out to be one of the standouts on the Arizona defense last year. Flannigan-Fowles tied the team-high in interceptions and is the team’s leading returner in tackles. Recently, he was named the Pac-12’s top playmaking safety and the second best returning player in pass coverage by Pro Football Focus. Flannigan-Fowles will need to patrol the secondary if Arizona hopes to be competitive defensively this year. If he can continue his growth from a year ago, he should be up to the task.

KENDRA DAHLKE, OUTSIDE HITTER (JUNIOR) – VOLLEYBALL Head coach Dave Rubio will be trying to find a new top outside-hitter this season after All-American Kalei Mau graduated in the spring. The person most likely to fill that role is Kendra Dahlke, who is entering the season as a junior and should be Arizona’s top offensive weapon. In 2016, she totaled at least 10 kills in 28 of the 32 matches she competed in, tying for fourth-most in UA single-season history. Dahlke finished her sophomore year with a team-high 496 kills and her 3.97 kills/set ranked fourth in the Pac-12.

GEORGE CUNNINGHAM (SENIOR) – MEN’S GOLF George Cunningham hasn’t had quite the success that many thought he would have in his first three seasons, but there is reason to believe that his best is yet to come. Arriving at Arizona in 2014 as the No. 2 rated golfer in the country by Golfweek, Cunningham had a stellar freshman campaign, being named to the All-Pac-12 second team and the All-Pac-12 freshman team. He also tied the UA’s all-time freshman single season record for stroke average with a 71.6. A tailbone injury forced Cunningham to miss almost all of his sophomore year. However, his junior year indicated a return to form as he posted a team-best 73.06 stroke average. If he stays healthy, Cunningham should be among the Pac-12’s top golfers.

200m freestyle butterfly and won last year’s Arizona’s Junior Male Athlete of the Year. Konopka has excelled in a variety of races, including the 50m free, 100m free and even relay team events. Her strong performances earned her a 16th place finish at the NCAA Championships last year. Wright and Konopka should form the backbone of a swim program looking to rebuild.

SHOOTING GUARD (JUNIOR) – MEN’S BASKETBALL A season ago, the 6’5 shooting guard led Arizona with 17.2 points per game and 46 percent from the field and was one of the main contributors to Arizona’s success down the stretch. Trier missed the first 19 games of the season due to a PED suspension and kept him from having the full breakout year that many people expected. The Seattle, WA native will have his shot at redemption this season and enters his junior year with expectations higher than ever surrounding him. There’s a good probability that Trier is an early candidate for Pac-12 Player of the Year and even National Player of the Year.

Rubio sets up Wildcats for another run BY RACHEL HUSTON @mirachelonice


ARIZONA VOLLEYBALL HEAD COACH Dave Rubio instructs his players during Arizona’s 3-0 win against Alabama State University in McKale Center on Sept. 5, 2014. Rubio’s teams have gone to the NCAA tournament 19 times in his 25 years heading the program.


Study the Bible in Greek and earn language credit

For years, the Wildcat volleyball program toiled in futility, often dwelling at the bottom of the conference standings. However, shortly after head coach Dave Rubio arrived, the program made a stunning turnaround. Rubio’s teams have gone to the NCAA tournament 19 times in his 25 years heading the program. While Rubio has had a largely successful run, not every year has been ideal. He admitted that he was lucky to have weathered the storm when things weren’t going the right way. The team’s emergence through those tough times is due in part to the coach’s mindset. “[You] try and weather the downturns and disappointments of when you’re not playing well,” he said, “and then when you’re winning … understand that there is still some work to do.” The other reason they’ve succeeded? Rubio credits the women on the floor for making winning possible. That’s an important insight for a coach who will be leading a young team this year after losing five starters. While this upcoming season may be a

transition year for the Wildcats, don’t count them out. Rubio says he likes the athleticism and enthusiasm of the young team, so he’s still optimistic about the possibilities. And competing is not just about making the NCAA tournament; it’s about growth. “You kind of focus on the process,” Rubio said regarding goals for the season. While competition is often about results and achievements, the journey itself is also valuable. Watching the players learn and grow as they play is rewarding for him. Rubio’s success stems from his love for the game. He coaches club teams during the summer and admitted that even if he were to retire from NCAA volleyball, he would still coach those club teams. But what keeps him going? “I still really enjoy being in the gym with my players,” he said. “That is the greatest part of coaching for me. The interaction on a day-to-day basis I have with my players”. The volleyball team kicks off their season on August 26 at the Luv Invitational in Nashville against East Tennessee State. They play their first home game on September 1 against Eastern Kentucky in the Cactus Classic.

Will '17 be a Wildcat revival – or a fight for survival? ANALYSIS



ast fall was an unmitigated disaster for UA football. The Wildcats went 3-9 and were overmatched most of the season. Arizona lost eight consecutive conference games, and only a stirring victory over rival ASU kept the ‘Cats from going winless in Pac-12 play. A much-ballyhooed recruiting class failing to materialize and the hiring of new athletic director Dave Heeke put head coach Rich Rodriguez squarely on the hot seat as questions arose about the direction of the program. Quarterback Brandon Dawkins is the type of player who thrives in Rodriguez’s explosive, highoctane offense. A talented runner, Dawkins ran roughshod over the rival Sun Devils, accumulating 183 yards and two touchdowns in the season finale. Unfortunately, Dawkins can’t run on every down, and his passing leaves much to be desired — he completed just 53.6% of his passes last season. His inability to stretch the field and make

routine throws made the Wildcat passing game one of the least effective in the country. There is a good chance that the ‘Cats will be one-dimensional once again due to a lack of returning starters in the receiving corps. Trey Griffey, Nate Phillips and Samajie Grant exhausted their eligibility, leaving Shun Brown as the lone returning starter. Cam Denson and Shawn Poindexter combined for just 21 catches last year, and they’ll be expected to produce bigger numbers in their upgraded roles. While the Arizona passing game doesn’t inspire confidence, the rushing attack should provide fans with loads of excitement. Nick Wilson returns to the fold after spending most of 2016 on the sidelines due to injury. The senior speedster rushed for 1,375 yards as a freshman and 729 yards as a sophomore. Observers note that Wilson looks to be completely healthy — something that hasn’t been the case in quite some time. Wilson is joined in the backfield by sophomore J.J. Taylor, a player whose freshman campaign was shortened by injury. Taylor was off to a dazzling start, gaining 261 yards on 38 carries before he was forced out of action. Highly-touted freshman Nathan Tilford will also see playing time, making the Wildcat stable of runners one of the best in the West. Whoever

all-conference pick by the time he leaves Tucson. Senior guard Jacob Alsadek provides leadership, and tackles Gerhard de Beer and Layth Friekh have combined to start 33 games in their careers. Kicker Josh Pollack struggled last year, only connecting on one kick from beyond 40 yards: he will need to improve. Defensive coordinator Marcel Yates struggled to find a winning combination in his first year at the UA. It wasn’t a return to Desert Swarm, as the ‘Cats surrendered an average of 44 points per game in conference play. While injuries played a huge role in Arizona’s inability to stop anyone, a lack of talent was the true culprit. Year two of the Yates regime should be an improvement, as the system is no longer foreign to the defensive squad. Seven starters return, and for the first time in years there is hope for the unit. The group that should make the largest leap is the men in the trenches. The ‘Cats have three solid defensive linemen, with Justin Belknap as the best of the bunch. Junior college transfer Sione Taufahema will provide additional bulk inside and should contribute immediately. The linebacker corps are rebuilding as leading tackler Paul Magloire graduated, leaving hybrid DeAndre’ Miller the lone returning starter. Despite the lack of experience, more bodies are available, which means the defense should be better equipped to handle injuries. The

secondary is deep and experienced, with all four starters returning. Dane Cruikshank had a fine year in 2016, with 60 tackles and nine passes defended. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles finished second on the team in tackles with 78 — he’s a playmaker at safety. While on paper the ‘Cats appear to be the least talented team in the Pac-12 South, they

do have some advantages that may help them reach the postseason. Arizona will not face Stanford and Washington, the two best teams in the North division, and will go face-to-face with Utah and UCLA at Arizona Stadium. Despite those advantages, the ‘Cats will face an uphill battle all year. This season is about more than the

opponents on the schedule; it’s about the future of the program. Can Arizona football be more than an also-ran in the South? Will Rich Rod be held accountable if the ‘Cats aren’t competitive? Those questions will be answered in due time, but for now it seems that the odds are stacked against the men in blue.

New athletic director Dave Heeke hopes to bring ‘culture of excellence’ to UA



n his first few months on the job, new Arizona athletic director Dave Heeke called the transition to Tucson a “fast and furious” process. The former Central Michigan athletic director comes to Arizona with high praise and already feels right at home in the Old Pueblo. “It is a world-class university with incredible people around it,” he said. “There is an energy and a pulse about it that is really exciting, and I have felt it since the day I walked on campus. The longer I am here, I feel it even more.” Heeke has quickly immersed himself in Wildcat culture. The East Lansing native has taken the time to interact with Arizona students, fans and donors in order to understand what makes the university so distinctive. “It is about being out there and trying to connect with them,” he said. As a result, Heeke has been able to further develop his vision for Arizona, and he plans to bring a winning culture to the university. “I think that our program should strive for excellence every day in everything that we do,” he said. “It’s all about creating a culture of excellence.” Heeke’s philosophy started at Central Michigan and comes with him to the desert. He sees it as something that will work if everyone from top to bottom buys into it. The expectation created is that those associated with the Arizona brand will be striving for a “championship” way of life in all aspects. “People around the athletic world can identify with that term [championship] very quickly, that it means excellence,” Heeke said. “It is a championship culture that we will chase and strive for every day at all levels.” Heeke envisions Arizona as a place where the campus and outside community members work together to improve the university, with athletics at the forefront of that effort. During his 11-year run at Central Michigan, Heeke’s athletic

department twice earned the prestigious Cartwright Award, which honors a Mid-American Conference’s achievements in academics, athletics and citizenship. Also, Central Michigan’s football program reached a bowl game in eight of Heeke’s 11 years, and the men’s basketball program won four MAC division championships. In June of 2013, Heeke was also one of only 11 athletic directors to be appointed to the NCAA Division I Athletic Director Advisory Group. The role has given him time to study and help address some of the needs of student-athletes across university campuses, an experience which

should benefit the UA. A former two-sport athlete at Albion College, Heeke understands the demanding life of a student-athlete. That’s why he plans to make a concentrated effort to give student-athletes at Arizona the best collegiate experience possible by equipping them with the necessary tools to be successful on and off the field. “I want their experience to be transformational; I want it to be incredible,” he said. “I want our program to serve their needs.” For Heeke, that effort begins with academics. He plans for the Ginny L. Clements Academic Center to be the cornerstone for all student-athletes at the UA pursuing their educations.

“Our number-one priority is every student-athlete that comes through our doors will graduate with a meaningful degree,” Heeke said. While Heeke aims to aid in the growth of student-athletes’ academic journeys, he remains just as committed to empowering them on the field. To help guide student-athletes to success, it is imperative for Arizona to have a coaching staff who can create an environment in which athletes thrive. “Nobody has a greater impact on a student-athlete’s life here more than those coaches,” he said. “They recruit them, they train, motivate and are around them on a daily basis. They help define

[their] experience athletically both here and beyond.” A lot of what Heeke will be judged for will be the on-field success of Arizona’s sports programs, and he is confident that the current set of coaches at the UA has what it takes to reach a championship level. “Not that anything is wrong or broken, but it’s about how we take that next step for those programs,” he said. However, one of the more challenging aspects Heeke will have to address in the athletic department has nothing to do with winning or losing. Instead, it deals with a larger, more critical

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 11:11-12, Isaiah 43:5-6, 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. “Too hard to read and understand” you say? Try the KJV/Amplified parallel bible (book) or KJV/Amplified/Complete Jewish parallel bible (, and for a strict literal translation try Young’s Literal. “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, Psalm 14:1)!

Arizona’s proud hoops tradition


There’s basketball and then there’s Arizona men's basketball. The Old Pueblo is home to a rare breed of college basketball where there is a never ending fountain of optimism, no matter how the season may wind up. Arizona men's basketball boats one of the proudest traditions on the West Coast. Anchored by a large community that remembers watching the 1997 championship and bolstered by a rabid student fan base known as the Zona Zoo, UA basketball is cherished in a similar manner as SEC football is in the South. It has been over 20 years since Arizona and won a national championship and 16 since the program last went to a Final Four. By now, it would be easy to assume that fan support has wavered after two-decades without a championship. But instead, it’s the opposite and the fan base remains as strong as ever. Arizona holds like Pac-12’s highest attendance rate to home games at 33 years in a row and the program shows no signs of

THE UA MEN'S BASKETBALL team was the cream of the Pac-12 crop in 2016-17 — winning both the conference's regular season and postseason tournament championships under head coach Sean Miller.

relinquishing that distinction. There are very few places that are better to watch a college basketball game than the McKale Center. The arena, which underwent a $30 million renovation before the 2014 season, is heralded has one of the premier sporting venues in the Pac-12. On game days, fans of all ages crowd the arena before the game and rarely is there an open seat. Prior to the UCLA vs Arizona game on Feb. 25, 2017, around a thousand students packed the McKale Center at 6:00 a.m for ESPN’s College Gameday. Many students even camped outside overnight. The same game set the Arizona record for ticket prices as some fans paid over $1,000 for tickets. The excitement of Arizona men's basketball during the month of March creates a frenzy that is hard to beat, because each year it seems like the team is positioned to make a deep NCAA Tournament run. Under head coach Sean Miller, the program hasn’t gotten over the hump yet of getting back to a Final Four, but it feels like it’s only a matter of time. Arizona has reached the Sweet Sixteen three of the last four years, and the Elite Eight two of those four years. This year, Arizona will once again have one of the best teams in the country, headlined by junior Allonzo Trier and the nation’s No. 1 recruit, DeAndre Ayton. The season is still a few months away but Arizona men's basketball will be in full swing starting in October when the annual Red/ Blue game takes place. Expect Wildcat basketball pride to be everywhere once that happens.

with little financial experience. It’s important to know that non studentoriented housing may not offer this convenient feature. On the west side of town, Gateway at Tucson, The Ranch and Campus Crossings are hotspots for students to live. These apartments are located farther away from campus, but offer free shuttles for students to commute between the UA campus, Pima Community College and their apartment. “The cost difference between student housing and dorms ... it is so affordable,” said UA engineering student Crystal Lopez, a leasing manager with Gateway at Tucson. “You get a nice apartment for a great price and it’s a great way to meet people and network.” Many student housing apartments are furnished, which is helpful for students on a budget who cannot afford to buy furniture. However, unfurnished options are also available if students wish to customize according to their own vision. Great deals on furniture are not too hard to find. Look at places like Ikea, Sam Levitz or even second-hand stores that sell cheap furniture with character. “I think that places like Target

and Walmart have some of the best deals for students,” said Jordyn Luna, a junior studying Education. “Bookcases, bedding, boxes to store stuff and toiletries are some things that you can get for a real steal when it comes to deals around this time.” In addition, department stores like Ross and Burlington Coat Factory are great places to treat yourself to something nice, but also necessary, such as dishware, bedding, furniture or decorations for your room. These types of additions can bring some personality to your living space. The bottom line is that finding a great price is up to the student renter. You should call properties that interest you, make visits, tour homes and figure out what you want. Look at reviews, ask friends who may live in student housing or any type of offcampus hosing to learn your options. It’s also important to know your rights as a renter. “Working in the industry helped me a lot because when I had issues I knew my rights,” Martinez said. “I knew what the industry standards were and many times with issues like leaks, AC issues and other maintenance-related items, I spent time arguing with management as they would brush it off and tell us we needed to wait not knowing that I was aware of the laws.” Martinez is well versed in fair housing laws. She said that the


THE RANCH AT STAR PASS, located on Shannon Road south of Broadway, showcases the many amenities they offer to student residents. Student housing apartments such as The Ranch create special offers, such as individual leases, to cater to the large UA student community in Tucson.

Landlord and Tenant Act exists to help you through issues like these. “I have lived at four different student housing communities and they need to understand we aren’t

children and deserve equal treatment and attention as we are all adults and paying consumers,” Martinez said. Renting an apartment or house allows you to have your own place. It

is an important decision, so take your time, do your research and find out what your dream home on a budget looks like.

Discover community of UA cultural centers BY SHAQ DAVIS @ShaqDavis1

With 34,000 undergraduate students enrolling at the UA this fall, campus can seem like an easy place to get lost. Fortunately, UA students, staff and faculty will help incoming students discover the communities on campus during Finding Community Welcome 2017. The event will be held on Aug. 24 in the South Grand Ballroom at the Student Union Memorial Center from 6 to 8 p.m. Finding Community Welcome will incorporate various activities to inform students and staff of the opportunities UA cultural and resource centers have to offer. UA’s campus hosts several centers designed to increase connectivity in the community.

Renovated MLK Jr. building offers sense of home


THE DR. MARTIN LUTHER King Jr. Student Center, located on Second Street and Mountain Avenue, houses the African American Student Association. Renovations to the African American Student Services office were completed this summer.

when you come in, it’s like a family vibe so when you come in we’re cracking jokes, we’re talking about critical conversations that need to be discussed.” She said the space is a safe haven for students. Previously, students within the AASA have participated in activism events, like getting involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and inviting speakers like author Bell Hooks to come to campus and speak to students in late April. This upcoming Fall semester will feature new local events, starting with an open house for the UA community on August 30.



UA Broadway 22nd




Last semester, African American Student Affairs celebrated 25 years of supporting UA students throughout its academic careers. This semester, AASA will resume its role in the newly renovated interior of the Martin Luther King Jr. building on Second Street and Mountain Avenue. The staff had a soft-opening on May 3 for the UA community to see the completed work. The AASA office was given more space, a new kitchen, a quiet study area and an activity area. The renovation will help continue the mission stated on its website: “[T]o facilitate a support system that helps students achieve academic excellence and an enriching African American cultural experience at the UA.” Ray Ray Lambeth, lead student worker at the AASA, said that representatives have been active with recruiting. “We’ve done a lot of recruitment as far as sitting in on student orientations all through May [and] June, and we still have more things to do in August,” she said. “The freshmen class that came in this year is huge and we have pages and pages full of students that signed up and came to our table and said, ‘I want to be a part of AASA, what do you guys do?’” In January, Kimberly “KC” Williams began her first semester as AASA director alongside the UA while it continues its commitment to a more diverse community. Students have given their support to her role in the affairs department. “She’s been doing a great job,” Lambeth said. “She came in ... and now we’re all pushing on the same foot and the same page.” Williams said the new center is a place where students can come to find encouragement and learn what the AASA is doing within the community.

“I encourage especially the black students on campus to come through and see who we are and see what we are about,” Williams said. “We are here for you; this can be your home away from home and you may not need us all the time, but when you do we’re going to be here.” Currently, the Black Student Union works collectively with other cultural center groups to get additional staff to help in each center. “We are pleased to announce as the result of the advocacy and activism of the Black Student Union and the Marginalized Students of the University of Arizona, the six cultural and resource Centers at [the] UA have received funding for additional staff,” the group announced to its Facebook community. Thanks to additional funding, the AASA recently hired Zachary Brown as its new coordinator and will also be operating this semester anticipating new UA President Robert C. Robbins and the administration’s support. Lambeth highlighted one way to increase support for the cultural centers. “If a student comes to UA and asks for a tour and set it up, the tours don’t show the cultural centers, and because the school is trying to promote diversity, you must show these things so these students who are diverse feel like they have somewhere to go.” Lambeth said some of the demands like the renovations and the new staff for all the cultural centers have been met, but there is still more to do. According to its website, the AASA is a place where students can come to eat, play video games, rest, pray and hang out with others in one central location. “We have flat-screen TVs, we got a kitchen so if they don’t have any food or money to buy anything we have food here so if they need anything regardless,” Lambeth said. “And just the vibe

New program to help vets adapt to academia


The Veterans Education and Transition Services Center at the UA is preparing for the start of a new Peer Advocacy Liaison program in the fall. Tucson native Amanda Green is one of the few women among the liaisons, and her job is to help ease veterans’ transition from military life to academia. Green, 32, a mother of one and a junior studying public health, is currently in the Navy Reserves. “I was active duty for four years,” she said. “I love the Navy, but I wanted to focus on my education.” Green wanted to do something that would help others, and assisting veterans’ transition into academic life seemed like a perfect fit. According to Green, the VETS Center has recently seen a huge influx in female veterans, a change made thanks to an online survey. “Even a few years ago it was very maledominated,” she said. “Female veterans weren’t using the center and we wanted to address why that was.” The center sent out an email to the veteran community last fall, asking female veterans to explain why they weren’t using the center.

“It came down to environmental opportunities,” Green said, describing the old VETS Center as a sort of boy’s club. “They’ve been working on that, and I think we’ve made a lot of positive changes.” The center made a point to hire more women, such as Social Media Director Ashleigh Woolridge, an engineering student and military dependent. “For a long time, the VETS Center was a space pretty much specifically for male combat vets,” Woolridge said. “But they’ve been working really hard to make sure the whole community feels welcome in the center.” The military itself is largely male-dominated, Green explained. “During my time in the Navy, I was working in a clinic and I was one of the only females working in the place,” she said. “Being a female in the military, you’re sometimes in situations where you’re one of the only women.” Consequently, the VETS Center is doing its best to change the atmosphere — not only to make everyone in the community feel welcome, but to accommodate a spike in the student veteran population. The VETS Center expects the number of student veterans to nearly double in the upcoming semester, said Kyle Larson, another

What high school doesn’t prepare you for OPINION

BY ALEC SCOTT @DailyWildcat


ollowing the conclusion of each academic year and the subsequent arrival of freshmen to universities across the country, each incoming class is given a well-prepared speech on the opportunities and potential offered by their university’s unique experience. The campus is wide open, and each schedule is tailor made by the student to best support their goals. This has developed an atmosphere of creative liberty that is impossible not to become enamored with. Yet behind this beautiful image of freedom and transition exists a dark reality. The U.S. Census and American College Testing Program found that in 2008 almost 34 percent of incoming freshmen dropped out as a consequence of feeling overwhelmed or overconfident. If college is a self-driven and creatively open experience, then what is causing students to struggle as they try to fit into their new environment?

To understand what troubles freshmen, and by extension all students in college who are experiencing difficulty transitioning from k-12 into secondary education, then it becomes necessary to understand what pre-college education has become. More than anything, high school has for decades been an environment where tools are given to students with the understanding that they would later use those tools either during employment or secondary education. For example, high school students are drilled on theorems, facts and dates but they’re taught to memorize rather than to think. Only tangentially are students given the opportunity to self-direct or think independently from standardized tests or textbooks that govern what must be taught, and thus, what must be engraved in each student’s mind before they can graduate. While this may build a foundation for critical thought and educate the student about some elements of the world around them, if students are only told what to think and never how to think, they will find themselves completely lost upon graduating. If high school is orderly and structured, then college is organized chaos. Students accustomed to standard 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. schedules will be

Honors college envisions future potential BY HENRY CARSON @_henrycarson

As UA honors students adjust to the responsibilities of a new semester, incoming Honors College Dean Terry Hunt inherits the duty of overseeing the creation of a new honors complex as well as changes to the honors curriculum. After a year of planning, the Honors College will begin implementing a new honors experience this fall for its incoming students. A seven-week “Catalyst Course” will introduce students to the new assigned common reading book, “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson, and students will examine different topics surrounding the book’s theme of incarceration. In the spring of 2018, the Honors College will also pilot a “Triptych Course,” in which students will look at a single topic or problem from the perspective of three professors from different disciplines. Each week, students will rotate into one of three groups headed by different professors, stopping in between rotations to discuss their findings.

There are also plans to create an “Engagement Hub” for honors students in their junior year which will prepare them to take on their senior capstone project. Through internships, research, study abroad and other opportunities, students would be able to explore their interests and gain experience before their capstone the following year. “We’re trying to create a coherent and cohesive honors curriculum that takes students from day one all the way through the capstone experience,” said Interim Honors Dean Elliot Cheu. According to Cheu, these ideas for updating the honors curriculum came about after the report from the UA Honors Re-Envisioning Task Force, a group from the Office of the Provost which evaluated the Honors College last year. While focus groups and committee meetings took place, much of the planning for the updated honors program occured before Hunt was appointed as the new honors dean. Hunt said he looks forward to working on the curriculum, which he notes is different from those he oversaw

as dean at the University of Oregon Honors College and director of the University of Hawaii campuswide honors program. “I’m interested in starting off my position at Arizona by learning and listening as much as I can,” Hunt said. Recognized worldwide in the archaeological community for his work on Easter Island, Hunt said he would love to teach while at UA. “It’s a very good way for me to interact with students and to stay in touch in a very persistent sort of way with who our students are,” Hunt said. “Working with students is an important part of my job.” The new honors complex, scheduled for completion by fall of 2019, will be located just north of campus and will consist of honors student housing, a recreation center, offices, classrooms and a parking lot. “Having a physical center for the Honors College is really important,” Hunt said. “It gives the college identity; it gives it a sense of place and it brings students, faculty and staff together in terms of proximity. The new complex is very exciting and it will be really

JOSE GARDEA STUDIES FOR a final on Dec. 3, 2016. The library or Student Union Memorial Center can make for a better study spot than the dorms for new freshmen.

Navigating freshman year OPINION

Tour Today!



t’s your freshman year. You’ve been waiting for this brand new chapter of your life for weeks, months or maybe even years. Now that it’s finally here, know that there are some things you definitely should and shouldn’t do during your first year of college. Let’s get the bad ideas out of the way first, shall we? 1) Don’t take an 8 a.m. class! You think you can do it because you’ve been starting school that early your entire life, but trust me, you won’t want to do it in college. What will happen is either you’ll skip class, or you’ll go to class and sleep through it. Friday mornings are especially hard because Thursday nights are huge for parties. Waking up at 7:30 a.m. and having to trek from your dorm to class is just torturous after a night out. 2) Don’t try to do your homework in the dorms. No matter how nice the study rooms are, distractions abound. I found out quickly that if I went back to my room after class I would be tempted to nap or walk down the hall to a friend’s room. Try to get as much done as you can at the student union or in the library. When you go home later, you can take a nap or hang out with friends without the burden of homework looming over you. Now let’s move on to the good ideas: 1) Communicate with your roommate. I got lucky. My roommate became my best friend, so it was easy for us to talk about what we did

and didn’t want the other to do. Not everyone is as fortunate. I know people who parted ways with roommates because of conflicts. Whether or not you become friends with your roommate, it’s important to be able to talk to them about cleanliness, having guests over, bedtimes and other daily particulars. Establishing boundaries from the beginning makes it easier to live in close quarters with someone for nine months. One way suggested for freshman to get involved on campus and in the UA sports scene is to join Zona Zoo. 2) Join the Zona Zoo. Our football team may struggle, but tailgating and going to games with your friends is fun and helps you feel the school spirit. Basketball is a blast too, but in a different way. Games are mostly on weeknights, so spending the whole day rallying before them doesn’t happen, but the team is great and attending games can be made into a really fun outing. 3) Take some fun general education courses. If you take gen eds that you don’t have an interest in, it’s really easy to skip class or homework because you’ll find yourself thinking, “This doesn’t have anything to do with my major, so it doesn’t matter.” However, gen eds DO affect your GPA, so they matter. If you take fun ones, you’ll gain some knowledge in topics that you wouldn’t otherwise and give yourself a well-needed break from your majorspecific classes. Overall, make sure you have fun. Your freshman year is exciting because you’re on your own in a new environment, new set of circumstances, and new stage of life. While you do have to balance work and play since you’re ultimately here for your education, you should still enjoy extracurricular activities like clubs and social events. Keep that in mind, and have a great year.

viewable. James said the environment of the center once looked rather intimidating, with large lockers and blue partitions blocking off computers, giving it a kind of hospital vibe. But Green said they have ordered new desks, will move the lockers and will bring in new furniture making it look different. Speaking of her own transition to academic life, Green said it's been difficult but pales in comparison to challenges she faced in the military. “I think the most difficult part of transitioning to academia, though, is applying through the benefits website,” she said. “That can be pretty confusing.Also knowing who and where to go to as far as your advisors, scheduling for classes and how the GI Bill is paid.”


structured assignments that require higher level comprehension that was not previously encouraged. Students who take college level courses in high school may find themselves much better prepared for college. Those students who don’t can quickly become overwhelmed and lost if not adequately prepared by their teachers — teachers preoccupied and overloaded with the stress of meeting state and federal standards. Now that the success of a school is tied to its test scores rather than the success of its graduates, students head to universities across the country with inadequate preparation, possessing knowledge of standards that will prove far less helpful now that SATs and ACTs have no further purpose. Rather than radically restructuring the format of high schools, courses should be more dedicated to promoting critical thinking. This way the creative and free-form world of secondary education will no longer be so

Green said they’ve been developing operational procedures to address those confusions. Because Green and other PALs are generally a few years older than other students, they know firsthand what it’s like to feel out of place, especially during orientation. “A lot of the stuff they covered didn’t necessarily apply to me,” she said. “So what we’re trying to do is create an optional orientation process for veterans so we can facilitate our own orientation.” The PAL program is intended to be a cushion for student veterans, men and women alike, to rely on for any concerns they might have throughout the transition. “I think the most important thing is that we would like people to know that the center is here for everyone, not just veterans,” Green said. “I would like to welcome everybody to come check us out."

foreign or overwhelming to students who have been told to ignore everything except the answers to potential test questions. In addition, students should also be allowed to self-direct their education more than they are currently allowed. With more options for electives and core classes, rather than the standard one-size-fits-all schedule across the United States, new students entering the university will be more confident having already planned a more variable course schedule. High schools must step up to the plate to better prepare students for the incredible change in pace and style in use at American universities. While test scores and graduation rates are integral and helpful for tracking weaknesses and strengths within institutions, ultimately the most important goal of any school is to make sure that every student is capable of leaving with the tools they need to succeed. If high schools cannot assist their graduates in bridging the gap between primary education and whatever will come after, then they have failed in their most important task.

College culture influences our identity OPINION


As cliché as it sounds, college is a place for young people to mold into their fully adult forms. A college’s environment can completely reroute a student’s planned course of action, due to how their surroundings impact them as both students and people. I was always aware this was the case, but I thought the road to becoming an adult was determined by who a person is at their core, and the college that an individual went to was simply a location for them to grow. Last year, when I was deciding which university to attend, I didn’t think much about how the school I was choosing would have a huge impact on the type of person I would become, and to what degree my

school’s culture would contribute to that. About a month ago, I returned home to Idaho from the UA for summer to reunite with my family and friends. My high school friends were all very driven and put in effort to go to a wide range of schools. Of my close high school friend group, only one of us stayed in Idaho, where she attends a medium sized state school in a rural area. One went to a small liberal arts school in Utah where she is a student athlete. Another went to a prestigious private school in the heart of Boston. One of us went to a small liberal arts school in Georgia, and I went to a large state school in the Southwest. Clearly, we didn’t choose the same paths for our post-secondary education, and it’s showing now that we are back together. I don’t know how the rest of them feel, but I notice a difference between the UA’s culture and that of other schools.

The biggest thing that I can compare and contrast between the UA and the medium-sized rural Idaho state school is Greek life. Greek life is huge at this Idaho school, and because it’s in a really small town there isn’t much to do besides Greek life. So, if you choose to live in the dorms, they say it’s practically social suicide. Though Greek life is huge at the UA, students don’t need to join to have a fun four years. My friend that went to a liberal arts school in Utah has a very different social life than those of us here. She is an athlete at her school, which is not uncommon, because 90 percent of their student body are student athletes, with a large portion on the Olympic ski team. (Where is the Wildcat ski team?). The skiers are known as “snowbros,” and the minority that don’t play sports are called NARPs, which is short for “non-athletic regular people.” I guess the UA is filled with a bunch of NARPs who never have to trudge through snow to get to class. Boston and the entire East Coast is known for being very liberal, to a slightly pretentious degree. My friend that goes to school in Boston is liberal, which doesn’t bother me because I too am a liberal. She loves that her school is filled with students who discuss feminism theory and gender/sexuality with fluidity. This is definitely not how my school is. At the beginning of the school year, I was

slightly disappointed with the amount of Trump supporters there were at Arizona. Now I’m friends with Trump supporters, even though I’m not one myself. To each their own, but I like the political diversity among the UA’s student body. I think that it has expanded my political knowledge and has challenged me in ways that other schools would not have. For my friend that goes to a small school in Georgia, she was exposed to a Southern culture that she has not experienced before she went into college in a serious relationship, which is why a school culture like this is beneficial to her. At her school she said that everyone there is either in a long-term relationship or looking for one, even as freshmen. Of course, there are couples at the UA, but in my experience, the majority of the freshman class is single and usually isn’t looking for their future spouse. The University of Arizona isn’t the best school in the world, but I like the opportunities it has provided. The person I’m becoming is in part because of the experiences that I have had as a Wildcat. I do envy some of the things that my friends have at their schools that I don’t, but ultimately I think I made the right decision for me. I think all of my friends ended up in environments that are best suited for them. Every school is different. It’s just about finding the right school for you and making the best of your school’s culture.

Clothing stores showcase local culture and flair These unique stops help put a Tucson spin on your own personal style BY LAUREN GRIFOL @laurengrifol

The rich culture of Tucson is reflected in the local fashion scene. There are many boutiques and stores that demonstrate different styles, functions and flair — there’s something for everyone. To get an idea, read about these popular clothing stores in Tucson.


ZOË BOUTIQUE, ORIGINALLY FOUNDED on Fourth Avenue in 1994, is home to a collection that features “a little bit of everything.” The clothing store is also home to other accessories including jewelry, handbags, scarves and even succulents.


COLLETTE, LOCATED NEXT TO the Chipotle Mexican Grill on University Boulevard, is owned alongside Boutique 816 by Amy DeVries. The store purveys a “girl next door” clothing style while incorporating many of the vintage motifs found at the sister store, Boutique 816.


BOUTIQUE 816, THE SECOND in a pair of sister fashion-stores, promotes a vintage feel with antique-like furniture and rustic decor complementing a “boho-meets-edgy” clothing selection. The shop is located on the north side of University Boulevard, along with its sister store a few doors down on the same side of the street.

Dress Code What began as a small 500 square foot t-shirt shop is now home to over 100 brands available to the Tucson community. Dress Code initially expected to draw the attention of music fanatics, however it has since drawn the business of many other subcultures and communities in Tucson, especially that of the UA. Dress Code was launched in 2006 by a family composed of musically-driven individuals. Three brothers and a sister shared the vision of creating a boutique that would be synonymous with the “latest, hottest and freshest” trends. One of the owners, Mustafa Dawoodbhoy, was a student at the UA while the family launched Dress Code. Dawoodbhoy studied accounting through the Eller College of Management and later earned a masters degree. “Keeping up with the rigor of Eller and helping launch the store was not an easy task, however since it is something we are passionate about, we made it possible,” Dawoodbhoy said. All ages can enjoy the pop culture-inspired flair; there are men’s, women’s and children’s sections.The popular unisex brands consist of Converse, Vans, True Religion, Ray Ban and so many more. Dress Code has incorporated more elements of pop culture relating to that of TV shows and movies into their merchandise selection, includinghits like The Office, The Bachelor and Bob’s Burgers. Some of their musician and band merchandise features celebrities like Lady Gaga and Kanye West as well as Radiohead and The Beatles. Their most recent expansion included the addition of brands such as Stussy, The Hundreds and 10Deep. Furthermore, they have collaborated with a popular local designer Prince and feature his collection FINALLYMADE. With these additions, Dress Code owners are confident that their boutique will continue to grow. Dress Code is located at 2636 E. Broadway Blvd. ZOË Boutique Located near the UA campus is one of Tucson’s first boutiques, ZOË. ZOË exudes an aesthetic that is feminine, airy and colorful. The shop’s selection encompasses “a little bit of everything … [including] cute clothes for going out, accessories, clutches and a few home goods like candles and art” said Lissa Marinaro, current owner of Zoë and a UA alumna. “I loved shopping and one day I went into my favorite store, ZOË, and the owner was hiring … two years later it became mine” said Marinaro. Originally, ZOË opened on Fourth Avenue in 1994. With recent

increase in business however, it moved to the current location on the corner of Campbell Avenue and Hedrick Drive. Since the switch in ownership, Marinaro has broadened the array of merchandise available to include trendy pieces for numerous occasions. ZOË sells casual tees, rompers, semi-formal dresses and super cute accessories, making it a go-to for any customer for various festivities. Originally from the midwest, Marinaro moved to Tucson to attend the UA and escape the harsh winters. “I fell in love with Tucson and never left,” said Marinaro. The captivation of the Tucson flair led her to showcase the skill and creativity of numerous locals. “We carry one-of-a-kind accessories from local designers, and art from local artists that we rotate every couple of months,” Marinaro said. Also inspired by the desert landscape, Marinaro decided to include a “Desert Love” tab on ZOË’s website where interested shoppers can find desert-inspired apparel and accessories. Along with their selection of locallysourced items, Marinaro’s mini schnauzer, Mozart, often accompanies her to work. Collette/Boutique 816 Located on University Boulevard are two popular sister stores, Collette Clothing and Boutique 816. These two businesses share more than just trend-driven clothing. They are co-owned by Amy DeVries Jesionowski. Jesionowski first launched Collette clothing back in 2011, and after seeing lots of success, she decided to open Boutique 816 in 2012. Although run by the same owner, Collette and 816 feature different styles and vibes to accommodate the large customer base. Collette is geared more toward customers who prefer a “girl next door” aesthetic. 816 is “where boho meets edgy” said Nicole Cuillo, a UA senior and manager at the boutiques. Once inside either store, the customers are greeted with a charming vintage feel. “There are many different kinds of displays showcasing the character of the store and, although 816 is smaller in size, it still possess the same vintage feel,” Cuillo said. The vintage presence in both of these stores is created by Jesionowski. She uses her interior design niche to create eye catching and unique displays. She does this by transforming old furniture pieces she finds in thrift stores around Tucson into chic functional embellishments. With an impeccable eye, Jesionowski and her managers regularly take trips to Los Angeles and attend trade shows in Las Vegas to buy and deliver the most up-to-date pieces. The merchandise ranges from formal to casual depending on the time of year, but usually Collette and 816 are equipped with something perfect for any occasion. Jesionowski is also very conscientious about upcoming events happening on and off campus. When popular events such as spring break, homecoming and festival season are approaching, she makes sure to include many new pieces that help her customers look their best.

When classes begin this semester, remember these eight great places to get settled and hit the books BY DAVID PUJOL @deathlydavid

For college students, studying is a way of life, but sometimes the motivation to dive into homework is hard to find. Studying in the wrong environment can lead to procrastination or distraction. If you’re in need of a study spot, read the following list of eight great places to study around the UA community. UA Main Library The main library is always a safe bet for studying. It’s on campus, full of resources and even has private study rooms for reservation. If your laptop battery is getting low, charging stations are plentiful, and if you need to print something CatPrint kiosks are scattered throughout. The library is a productive environment for students. “I personally feel like studying at the library is a must,” said Dallas Jones, a UA psychology major. “It’s away from home and distractions; you just plug your headphones in and get to work.” A Starbucks is also right next door, and studying can be done there if you don’t mind some background noise. The main library is available to students 24 hours a day, which make it a great place to study

no matter what time it is. Student Union Memorial Center Studying on campus isn’t limited to the library. Another good study spot is the SUMC. If you’re crashing and need some caffeine, many pick-me-up options such as The Scoop and the CatMart are nearby, and the many restaurants there are good places to grab a bite. Depending on the hour, you could either grab a meal from Papa John’s or pick up some brain food from Nrich Market. Whatever you decide to fuel your body with, the SUMC has plenty of seating options — the third and fourth floors even have outdoor seating for those wanting to study with some fresh air. THINK TANK If you need some help with your classes, the UA offers THINK TANK tutoring to all students. It’s a great resource for brushing up on math and science skills as well as polishing writing and language skills. Think Tank has drop-in tutoring, or you can schedule an appointment. While drop-in tutoring with other students is free, private tutoring for an individual or a small group can be had for a fee. THINK TANK is accessible across

campus thanks to multiple locations. Starbucks at Main Gate Square For those who need caffeine to get through their work, the Starbucks on University Boulevard is close and can provide a constant supply of coffee. Studying at Starbucks ensures that you’ll have not only have access to java and snacks, but also free wireless internet. Caffe Luce If you can’t get enough of the coffee shop environment, Caffe Luce is another great choice. Located close enough to campus to use UA Wi-Fi, this quaint café has delectable pastries and a variety of coffee drinks to help you through an evening of cramming. If you’re looking for the same great coffee a little farther away from school, a second location is located in downtown Tucson. UA campus outdoors Many students choose to do their studying on grassy areas under trees or on benches and tables lining the buildings around campus. Some popular spots include the area behind the Modern Languages building, the grassy hill outside of the Administration building, the tables at Old Main or the benches lining the path near Park Avenue and University Boulevard. These are quiet places for reading or studying while getting the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin D.

Shot in the Dark Café Night owls can find themselves a second home at the Shot in the Dark Café. This spot is open 24/7, hours that students with serious workloads can appreciate. The cafe is a great location to study late at night, with good coffee, an internet connection for your devices, and even a full menu to order from regardless of the hour. Scented Leaf Tea House and Lounge Students who don’t drink coffee can enjoy the Scented Leaf ’s terrific student atmosphere. Open until 9 p.m., this tea house has comfortable seating inside or out and affordable refill options for their wide selection of teas and mixed drinks. Besides serving pastries and tea, the Scented Leaf also offers board games for those wanting to take a break from studying. While the cafe is close enough to campus to use UA Wi-Fi, it also has its own wireless network. “One of the things that makes this a great place to study is that we have really great workers,” said Max Kelley, a barista at Scented Leaf. “We are all here to make the best teas for everyone that comes in and we don’t interrupt anybody and people can come in and feel at home and sit back and relax and study since what we have here is a really great and homey vibe.” Aside from finding the perfect study location to suit you, another essential tip is to not bury yourself in last-minute homework. Make sure to rest your brain by taking regular breaks from the books, and get a full night’s rest when your work is done.

Where are you headed in life? As a Navy or Marine Corps Officer, from day one you are in charge of U.S. sailors and marines, leading them here and overseas. Aviation, submarines, surface ships, nuclear engineering, special warfare, armor, artillery, infantry, supply, communications and nursing are just a few of the opportunities as a Naval Officer. Whether for a single tour or for a career, you will be prepared for the challenges of today’s high-tech and fast-changing world. If you qualify, the Navy and Marine Corps enable you to compete for scholarships that pay for tuition, fees, textbooks, and provides you with a monthly stipend.

Navigating healthy food options on campus Staying healthy in college can be tough with the convenience of fast food restaurants. Keep these healthy options in mind next time you’re looking for a bite

BY SCARLETT LORIN @scarlett_lorin

Depending on what you feel like eating, whether it’s after a successful workout sesh or long hours of studying at the library, you’re bound to find a place on campus with food that will suit your cravings. The Student Union is healthier than you’d expect after just a first glance. Hidden behind the glowing and popular Chick-Fil-A and soon to come Steak ‘n Shake are much healthier options if you opt for a lower calorie meal. Of course, the words ‘healthy options’ may vary depending on the individual, but they always carry similar traits: Low calories, mostly natural and pretty fresh.

If you’re hungry for a sandwich, you don’t have to worry about picking one from a menu that only partially satisfies your cravings. On Deck Deli custom crafts your sandwich for you on the spot — you even get to choose your bread and add sauce of your choosing. They have several meat options, ranging from salami to tuna. I personally am a big fan of tuna sandwiches, and before discovering the On Deck Deli, I could never really find that perfect tuna sandwich, but now I know just the place to go whenever I crave one. Smoothies are the ideal healthy drink for many, and there are many places to grab one on campus. IQ Fresh offers a selection of fresh smoothies, among other nutritious offerings. If you want to make your own, you just choose ingredients from their list, which is perfect for those who don’t like a specific ingredient that may appear in some of the signature

smoothies. They’re a perfect combination of a rich refresher and fresh fruit, ideal for a healthy treat. IQ Fresh also offers a wide range of salads, fruit cups and fresh wraps, including flax seed or spinach wrappers. Now we know there are healthy sandwiches and wraps in the Union, but what other healthy eats abound? Well, the union has its own salad bar too. Core lets you create your salad and experiment with fruits and vegetables combined for a unique and maybe even exotic taste. If you’re like me and aren’t a regular fruit and vegetable mixer, you might find yourself in a bit of a tough situation. Don’t worry though, because they’ll recommend different sauces that best suit the ingredients you’ve picked. Once I added a unique combination of strawberries and pineapple to my salad, and when faced with their variety of sauce options, I had no idea which one to pick in accordance with the other meat, grain and vegetable ingredients. All it took was a simple, “What would you recommend?” and you’re recommended a tasty complimentary sauce. You can also find fresh pressed juices and seasonal produce at the Nrich Urban Market. They offer many different healthy snack and meal options with infused waters for when you feel like a little detox. The UA campus not only has many healthy restaurants, but also hosts the Campus Health clinics, which are accessible to all students and really easy to use. Whether you book an appointment in

advance or go to the walk-in clinic, you’re bound to be taken care of quickly. Of course, you’re never safe from those sudden ill feelings that may occur during class, so the health clinic has you covered and can even provide you with an absence note. Cool right? Just don’t abuse that element of their service. Campus Health offers so many different services for everyone’s needs and has a good referral office. In fact, I went there not too long ago after my UA Campus Health doctor referred me to a specialist. They can book an appointment for you at a convenient clinic and time, and you’re all set without having to do that much. To some students, the words Campus Health resonate as a place where they only deal with big health issues, but even for the slightest cold, they welcome you to get checked up and prescribe the appropriate medications needed for your recovery. It’s convenient that the clinic has its own pharmacy — this is a very practical option for students who do not have a car and need to pick up prescriptions, even if they were not prescribed by a UA Campus Health doctor. Student life is most certainly stressful, and being so close to so many different people may make you more prone to getting sick. Having the Campus Health on-site makes dealing with these issues that much more bearable, and who knows, maybe they’ll end up recommending that you go get yourself a fresh smoothie or salad from the Union after your visit.

Representative Roundup: Who represents you? BY RANDALL ECK @reck999

While 2017 is not a major presidential election year, there are still opportunities for UA students to register

and vote for their political representatives. Students can also contact their political representatives at any time to ask for their support on issues important to them, especially those pertaining to higher education in Arizona.

If you’re interested in political advocacy, check out the opportunity to visit the state legislature with the AdvoCats at Here is a list of the politicians that represent you at every level of the political hierarchy.

Kozachik left the Republican party in 2013 believing it was out of touch with the views of his community on a variety of social issues including immigration, women’s reproductive rights and gun control. As part of his re-election campaign this year, Kozachik highlights his efforts to give Tucson a balanced budget and revitalize its downtown with economic investments. Recently, Kozachik criticized the UA over its fast-tracking of a development deal to build a new honors complex without adequately reaching out to the surrounding community.

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild Represents: City of Tucson Political Party: Democratic Terms: 2 (2011-2019) Contact:, (520) 791-4201 As mayor, Rothschild has led a number of initiatives to raise funds to improve Tucson’s infrastructure, with the most recent being a sales tax increase for road repair and emergency vehicles. Rothschild has advocated for Tucson’s solar and water industries helping to secure grants to fund innovation, overseen the construction of pedestrian and bike paths and led initiatives to improve literary and high school drop out rates, as well as end veteran homelessness. Rothschild gained international recognition for his efforts to form development projects on both sides of the Mexican border. A story of Rothschild as the victim of a carjacking gained national media attention earlier in the year.

Represents: Pima County Supervisorial District 5 Political Party: Democratic Terms: 4.5 (2002- 2020), gained seat in an off year election when Raúl Grijalva resigned the seat to run for Congress Contact:, (520) 724-8126 In 2016, Elías led a successful effort to pass a parental-leave policy for Pima county employees which provides 6 weeks of two-thirds pay for new parents. He also announced the Supervisors support for Project Period which collects tampons and sanitary pads for women and girls in the community, and created a GoFundMe page to raise money for the campaign. The three most important issues Elías vows to fight for are social justice, economic equity and protection of the Sonoran Desert Habitat. More recently, Elías opposed providing the agribusiness company Monsanto special tax benefits in the county.

Governor Doug Ducey Represents: State of Arizona Political Party: Republican Terms: 1 (2015-2019) Contact:, (520) 628-6580 Ducey ran on a platform of expanding funding for Arizona charter schools and school choice for Arizona students.

In 2015, Ducey joined many other Republican governors in opposing Syrian refugee resettlement in his state. The former CEO of Cold Stone Creamery, Ducey sought to expand Arizona’s economy by reducing regulations and bringing innovative technology companies, like those who test self-driving cars, to the state. More recently, Ducey fought successfully to include additional funding to the UA and the other state universities, in order to secure bonds to fund deferred maintenance projects.

Senator John McCain Represents: State of Arizona Political Party: Republican Terms: 6 (1987-2023) Contact:, (520) 670-6334 McCain ran as the Republican nominee in the 2008 presidential election, losing to Barack Obama. As chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, McCain raised his opposition to the Iran Nuclear Deal and more recently has sought to impose further sanctions on Russia. An honored veteran himself, McCain has focused on improving care for veterans, especially after the recent Veteran Affairs scandals. McCain’s seminal legislative achievement was the passage of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act to reign in nonfederal campaign spending. McCain opposed enhanced interrogation, supports gun rights and has worked to build trust in the Native American community. McCain was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, but returned to Congress just in time to vote “no” on the Republican Senate healthcare repeal bill.

Student tech contests a campus highlight BY WILLIAM ROCKWELL @willwrock529

Last spring, UA students competed in several competitions brought about by a range of UA departments, with three such events catching our attention. A self-driving car competition tested young computer engineers from across the globe to program a car to drive itself through an obstacle course, the Rooftop Garden Competition challenged any student willing to try to design an efficient, productive garden to liven up campus and provide food for the community and a candycounting competition sought to teach engineering and information undergrads how to cooperate and apply their knowledge to create robotic devices. The self-driving car competition, held April 23-25, brought in students from other

countries including Switzerland and Chile, and U.S. states including Missouri and Georgia. Teams were given a sequence of tasks that got progressively more difficult. “If students were able to go all the way through, the end result was to have their algorithms that used sensors on the car, that could also control the car and could reproduce the sensed world,” said competition mentor and electrical & computer engineering graduate student Matt Bunting. “In other words, parameterize the 3D world using all the sensors on the car.” Some teams took the most direct method; they detected and mapped out nearby obstacles and programmed the car to avoid them. The winning team from Switzerland went a step above. “Their solution was a simulated world in which the

car was traveling in,” said competition mentor and electrincal & computer engineering undergraduate Swati Munjal. The program students were required to use was the Robotic Operating System. “Not a lot of students were familiar with that operating system, so most of the tutorial requests we got were for that,” Munjal said. In the Skittle-counting competition, students from courses BME 210 and ISTA 303 came together to design devices capable of counting and sorting Skittles. “There’s this huge gap between learning individual skills and making them work,” said mentor and assistant professor at the School of Information Peter Jansen. The competition was designed with applying everything students have learned into one project. “The fastest design was a free-fall skittle sorter, so it detected the colors of the skittles as they fall mid-air,” Jansen said. Jansen hopes for the students to have walked away from the competition with a more complete understanding. The competition will likely be held again in the fall. The Rooftop Garden Competition, open to all UA students, required participants to design an efficient, productive garden with limited space on the roof of the Student Union Memorial Center. “We wanted to make the UA more sustainable and advertise how environmentally friendly we are,” said second place team member and environmental studies undergraduate Rebecca Van Rhee. The greatest challenge students had to

overcome was the weight limit. “In the beginning there was a weight restriction of 20 pounds per square foot, which was not very much,” Rhee said. Students also struggled with time restraints, with finals having been just around the corner by the time the competition was coming to a close. “If I can think of one thing I wish I had done more, was put more time and research into it” said finance undergraduate and second place team member Amy Stalkfleet, “But we pulled it together and made a project I’m very happy with.” Second place team member and microbiology undergraduate Ryan Yamauchi explained “We constantly questioned and challenged each other’s ideas to get the best outcome. We had a wide range of interests and majors, which facilitated strong interdisciplinary collaboration.” The Rooftop Garden Competition was the first competition organized by the Office of Student Engagement, and was essentially their proof-of-concept. They’re currently planning several more competitions in the fall which students can look forward to, but are not quite ready to disclose what those might be. “It’s really important in the end that the challenge has an implementable outcome, that it’s important for students to work on something where they can put they’re ideas into practice,” said associate director of student engagement Anne Kurtin. The Rooftop Garden Competition will be available to compete in next year, and the team behind the self-driving car competition are planning a drone-based competition for the future as well.

Internet equality important to preserve BY BRIAN WINKLER @brianewinkler


n January 1996, two Ph.D students at Stanford University sought out a more efficient way to search the internet. Instead of displaying results based solely on the amount of times a search term appeared on a web page, they examined the relationship between the sites themselves. Their project grew and took on many names until it reached its final incarnation, Google. What started as a student research project is now one of the highest-grossing companies in the world, a household name and even a verb. Their success resulted from the fact that anyone, anywhere, could freely access their service without impedance. Their success resulted from Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality is the idea that internet content should be openly accessible without Internet Service Providers (ISPs) blocking, restricting or favoring content. This prevents

ISPs from regulating different web services to fast-lanes and slow-lanes of Internet traffic based on whether these services are willing or able to financially submit to these charges. For those who have unlimited data plans on their cell phones, imagine that instead of your internet access being slowed down once you reach your data cap, your Internet access is slowed based on whether or not the website you’re trying to access has paid a premium to be in one of these fast-lanes. The internet we have always known has been a resource where anyone’s voice can be heard, and at this point, we probably take it for granted. It’s hard to imagine an internet any different than the one we have always experienced and quite frankly, anything else wouldn’t really be “the internet.” Everyone accesses the internet through our ISPs. Whether it be at home, on our phone or at a coffee shop, our internet traffic must first go through the servers of whichever company is providing us with internet access. To ensure that these companies do not abuse their power for the sake of profit, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enacted legal restrictions in 2015 preventing ISPs from violating Net Neutrality, meaning ISPs must give users equal access

them to the Communications Act of 1934. A key piece of this act is the assurance that telecommunications companies act in the public interest, cementing the long standing ideal that web companies couldn’t pay ISPs for favorable access to their content while slowing or blocking their competitors. As with all major issues, ideology falls in a spectrum between two extremes. On one end is the idea that removing these regulations will give companies more freedom and in turn, foster further innovation. The other being the fear of complete Orwellian censorship of the Internet. In reality, what would actually happen will probably fall somewhere in the middle. From an objective standpoint, removing these regulations would be good for the ISP’s business — but what’s good for business isn’t always good for the consumer. Ajit Pai, current Chairman of the FCC, is in favor of rolling back the 2015 regulations that ensure the internet would continue to be the open utility that allowed companies like Google to get their start. On July 11, a “Day of Action” was organized by Net Neutrality advocacy groups, calling on citizens to abandon social media and other internet platforms for 24 hours as a show of support of current regulations protecting Net Neutrality. The same day, AT&T released a statement saying that while they support Net Neutrality, they are in favor of removing the standing regulations.

An important piece to note is that some services already receive special benefits, especially in the realm of cell carriers. An emerging trend is that some phone companies, such as T-Mobile, allow their customers to access certain services without it counting towards their data cap. In a way, this could be seen as violating Net Neutrality, even though these benefits in no way limit the consumers access to the internet. In fact, they increase the user’s ability to access content. For consumers, this is an agreeable practice. If a company wants to invest their own money to relieve the burden of cost for their patrons, they should have that right. But the only way to do this isn’t by removing the prevailing regulations. Once again, the most practical solution can fall in the middle ground, one where companies can pay for their service to be accessed without the user needing to pay an internet bill to connect to this service. While ISPs could enact such a concept with the removal of such regulations, the only thing inhibiting the actualization of the Orwellian extreme are said regulations. But what could this all mean for students? It means that the next big idea for a social media platform brewing in the mind of a UA student might not get equal footing with giants such as Facebook and Twitter, and that UAccess could get put in a slow-lane of Internet traffic, impeding our access to it. It could mean that the next research paper you write could be restricted to sources with the capital to afford their content not being blocked, and that the legally-dubious free streaming service you use to watch the shows

ON JULY 12, NUMEROUS websites displayed messages cautioning the public against allowing net neutrality to be lost.

you can’t find on Netflix might suddenly disappear. The is the reality we face not at the far end of the spectrum, but within the middle ground. While changes to Net Neutrality have not yet occurred, this doesn’t mean they couldn’t happen in the near future. As time goes on, the impending threat of this regulation removal grows only more real. If we do nothing, this could soon become a reality. And that’s the key, continual public support for the current regulations. Everything from streaming services such as Netflix to your

friend’s food blog could be subjected to what is essentially corporate extortion, if the standing regulations are removed. The real tragedy is that multi-million dollar companies like Netflix can afford to pay these premiums, though I doubt your friend’s food blog has the same amount of expendable income. By continuing to show our support for Net Neutrality, we can help prevent an Internet fueled by the highest bidder and maintain the Internet as we have always known it — an open platform where anyone’s voice can be heard.

CONSTRUCTION OUTSIDE OF THE UA Rec Center. The new design will provide more privacy for students.

Rec center renovates locker rooms, aims for inclusivity BY TORI TOM @DailyWildcat

The UA community has a lot to look forward to this upcoming semester as the Student Recreation Center undergoes a major facelift and employs the campus Inclusive Excellence initiative. “What we wanted to make sure of was that campus rec is a welcoming environment,” said Michele Schwitzky, interim Director of Programs. Records from an LGBTQ Center survey five years ago found that many UA students felt uncomfortable and unsafe when asked about their past locker room experiences. This data led the Rec Center administration to designate two restrooms for all genders. “That was just a Band-Aid, and we knew that this was not going to meet the needs of all people,” Schwitzky said. “We discovered that that is not the only community that didn’t feel comfortable.” Open conversations with gym members provided the discussions necessary for potential resolutions. Schwitzky said faculty members and families with small children expressed concerns about showering, changing and getting dressed in the open. This need for more privacy was a central factor during the planning process. The implemented plan, contracted by Lloyd Construction Company, will result in the building of 14 new all-gendered cabanas. Single shower rooms will be replaced with individual shower stalls within gendered areas. The old locker rooms’ outdated design also made ensuring access for people with disabilities complicated. “They were built in a time where requirements for accessibility weren’t there,” Assistant Director of Marketing and

Communications Tara Watson explained. “So we have done things in the meantime to make sure wheelchairs … could obtain accessibility, too.” The locker rooms, which were built in 1990 during initial construction of the center, were exposed to inevitable wear and tear over the years. Watson said the quick fixes were temporarily effective but problems were recurring. “We uncovered a lot of barriers for people and that got us excited because we are making a huge difference by doing this renovation for our members,” Schwitzky said. “And we are leading most of the country about doing an all-gendered space and more private space.” Total renovation charges amount to about $5 million. Funds accumulated from the mandatory health and recreation fees, which are shared with campus health, help support the building project. However, the majority of the money came from auxiliary accounts, according to Schwitzky. “We’re really diligent about funds – it was like saving for a new house,” she said. After budgeting for operating costs, the increased dues from incoming freshmen will go toward future Student Recreation Center developments. “You know, you can keep putting in more money to repair it, but it makes more sense to stop throwing that money away and repair it to current standards,” Watson said. Demolition of the gym’s locker rooms began in May and renovations are likely to finish during mid to late August. A grand opening ceremony is in the works. Two portable shower trailers are available for use on the pool deck until the project is complete. Students who paid their university fees for the previous Fall and Spring semesters are now given free admittance during the summer.
