Corrections

A headline yesterday incorrectly stated that University Heights was the location of a homicide. As the story stated, the shooting took place at University House on West Anklam Road, not University Heights on North Park Avenue. The Wildcat regrets the error.

In yesterday's article, "Campus Construction: Tuition pays off debts," it was incorrectly stated that Dave Downey lives in the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house. Downey lives in the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house.
