Res. Life hopes to relieve shortage with apartments

University housing may be available to 434 more UA students if the Arizona Board of Regents today approves Residence Life's request to lease three off-campus apartment complexes. The University of Arizona Department of Residence Life hopes to lease the 242-bed Sky View Apartments, 1050 E. Eighth St., to house students this fall. In addition, the department would like to renew its leases on Corleone Apartments, 1330 N. Park Ave., and Palm Shadows Apartments, 1815 E. Helen St. Although UA currently houses 77 students in Palm Shadows, 192 spaces would be added under the proposed plan. Associate Director of Residence Life Pam Obando said the complexes will be marketed to returning students who would like to try independent living, but still need some guidance.    [More]

Editorial: Alpha Chi is example of greek business as usual
[news] Before the national office launched a flashy new ad campaign and pro-active hunt for solid UA women, Alpha Chi Omega was a sorority struggling to stay alive. The chapter was in financial trouble and reports of hazing cast a bad light on the state of the house. While chapter members hoped the sorority would last, paying $200 each to reduce debt, the national office swooped in and saved the day with a coup de grace. To save the house, Alpha Chi Omega killed it - the equivalent of cutting off a rotting limb for the better of the body.    [More]

Southern California punks bring fast rock to the Cellar
San Diego-based band FenixTx may not be UA recruiting counselors, but they nonetheless managed to bring lots of high school students to campus last night. The pop-punkers played to a sold out crowd of 240, largely composed of high school students and young University of Arizona students, in the Cellar of the Memorial Student Union.
