The UA Dean of Students office will distribute 100 free disposable cameras today in order to create a visual scrapbook detailing student life.

The scrapbook, "One Day at the U of A," is an annual event designed to unify the university community.

"I got the idea from a national conference on how to survey students on campus climate," said Celia Sepulveda, dean's office coordinator for community programs.

The program began last year when the Arizona Student Media was celebrating its 100 year anniversary.

"It's all students that help out with the project," said Outreach and Development Coordinator Mike Remedi. "They interview the students who take the pictures, ask where they are taken and who they are of."

Trader Joe's and Albertson's each donated 50 cameras and the University Photo Center paid for the development charges. While more cameras would mean more student visions, those involved with the project said it would make the costs too high.

"Since we don't have a yearbook anymore this was a perfect marriage of getting student opinion and doing outreach," said Sepulveda.

"One Day at the U of A" will be published in late March as an insert to the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

The cameras will be distributed to students on a first come, first serve basis, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at Old Main 203.

Cameras are to be returned to the same room the following day at 5 p.m.
