A Whole New World

There are runners circling the UA Mall when the sun is just breaking over the gates concealing the hole where the future Integrated Learning Center is being built.

The original building that spawned roots that stretch across the country, Old Main, stands among modern construction and still matches. In a month, there will be an infusion of life as the first fall semester of a new millennium packs lecture halls and sleeps in small pockets of shade while others tan outside their dorms.

This is a university on the move, and as new students you will move to greater heights as your university continues its climb up the academic mountain. This is a great university today, and, when you look back on it from the perspective of an alumnus, it will be an even greater university.    [More]

Local music scene going away from live music
[news] The evolution of the Tucson music scene is in a slow transition from a live music base to a more deejay and hip-hop club scene - which some local musicians and promoters feel is a negative direction. "The new trend is more towards the deejay scene so a lot of people are doing that," said long-time Tucson promoter Steven Eye. "The band scene has been harder these days because people these days are more interested in listening to CDs and they don't go out to see live music as much."    [More]
