Reader service is priority

We're here to serve you.

Come to think of it, those words should probably be plastered right up there next to the Arizona Daily Wildcat at the top of Page 1. You're that important to us.

Without its readers, newspapers are nothing. Without you, the students, faculty and staff of UA, the efforts of the Wildcat staff would be futile.

Improving your lives is our top priority. In fact, it's our only priority. If news breaks and you need to know about it, we'll tell you. If something interesting is happening in Tucson this weekend, we'll tell you. If there's more to a major campus issue than meets the eye, we'll dig up the dirt for you. [Read article]
