It's party time! Well, it's Homecoming at the least, and who really needs an excuse to party. Certainly not this campus. But anyway, you can start drinking before tomorrow's football game against Oregon State. And if sports aren't your thing, you've got all weekend to celebrate Homecoming. The best part is that you've got Monday off to nurse that hangover. Call Michelle Outlaw at 626-9334 for the details.
If you can stumble out of bed after all the drinking you did last night in celebration of Homecoming, stop by the Mall for Student Showcase. More than 150 students worked to organize a showcase of undergraduate and graduate research featured in 80 exhibits. Nearly every department on campus is represented in the largest student-organized event to ever hit the campus. The showcase will run all day, but be sure to stay for the end to find out which students will win the $10,000 in prizes. Call Kirsten Price at 626-7526 for the low down.
Start your holiday shopping early. Michael Schiffer, an anthropology professor, will sell pottery he made by hand to sponsor scholarships and fellowships funded by the anthropology department. Be sure to bring cash or your checkbook to Room 125 of the Anthropology Building today from 1 p.m. till 6 this evening for a chance to buy some unique gifts for your family.
It's hard to hold on to your roots when you come to a new country, or even just move across town to a new neighborhood.

R. Brooks Jeffrey can give you all the details if you drop him a line at 621-2291.
Is it that time of the month? No it's just "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown," an excessive, outrageous film that brought director Pedro Almodovar international acclaim. Check out the film in the Modern Languages Building at 7:30 p.m. Charles Scruggs has all the information you need, just give him a call at 621-3527.
It's better than Blair Witch Project and you don't have to watch those annoying kids whine about being scared. It's the Arizona Repertory Theater's production of "Into the Woods," a play that interweaves a mix of fairy tale characters such as Cinderella and Repunzel into a multi-layered plot, coupled with a musical background. The performance starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Marroney Theater. Call the fine arts box office at 621-1162 to buy tickets, which cost between $15 and $21.
