photo La Aldea not just for grad students

The UA's new graduate student housing complex will open its doors to a select few undergraduates in the spring in an effort to fill 96 empty beds in the complex.

La Aldea, which opened in the fall, was designed to house exclusively graduate students, but because there are vacancies at the complex, some juniors and seniors will be allowed to move in for the spring semester only.

The $20 million apartment complex, located at North Euclid Avenue and East Fifth Street, just north of Coronado Residence Hall, offers 164, unfurnished, one, two and four bedroom units, for a total of 323 beds. [Read article]

Political science sophomore has been on a beer run and was very impressed with the deed

Wildcat: My name's Nathan and you're On the Spot. How's your day going today?

Wildcat: Am I holding you up?

Palmer-Gai: At this point, it's kind of moot. I think I missed what the subject matter is one way or another. I'm going to meet up with my friend there so we can work out. [Read article]

Things you always never wanted to know

  • Isaac Newton's only recorded utterance while he was a member of Parliament was a request to open the window.

  • Somewhere out there in space, amid the junk, is the Hasselblad camera dropped during a space walk by the U.S. astronaut Michael Collins. It will orbit the Earth for an indefinite period.

  • The Winchester House, near San Jose, Calif., is perhaps the most bizarre house ever built. Mrs. Sara Winchester was convinced that if she stopped adding rooms to her house, she would die. So, everyday for 38 years construction went on. The house contains 2,000 doors and 10,000 windows, many of which open onto blank walls, and stairways that lead nowhere. The eight-story house has 48 fireplaces and miles of secret passages and hallways. When Mrs. Winchester died in 1922, at the age of 84, her mansion contained 160 rooms and covered over six acres of ground. It's also supposedly haunted. [Read article]
