The $1 fee students pay to keep KAMP radio on the air will go up for vote later this semester.

The referendum was passed by ASUA last semester, but now students will have the opportunity to vote on the fee on March 4 and 5. Following a UA decision, the Arizona Board of Regents will have the final say on the fee, said ASUA Executive Vice President Jennifer Reece.

"If it's not passed, we're done," said Brian VanBuren, general manager of KAMP student radio. "I don't know that we'll be able to continue to grow or even operate without it." [Read article]

Drivers needed to fill shifts before service can extend

UA students who are tired of ordering pizza late at night because they don't feel safe walking to the Student Union Memorial Center now have an answer the SafeRide Shuttle Express.

The extended service beginning in February will provide a ride for students around campus from 1 a.m. 4 a.m., matching the hours of the union's Cellar restaurant, which is now open daily from 10 a.m. 4 a.m. [Read article]

photo UA police plagued by false fire alarms

It's 2 a.m. and nearly 900 residents of Coronado Residence Hall are standing on East Fifth Street waiting for the fire department to clear the building.

After enough time to have a cigarette and chat with their roommates, the students are finally allowed to re-enter the building.

This type of scenario is not uncommon on the UA campus.

According to UAPD Commander Kevin Haywood, there is a problem with false alarms on campus. [Read article]

Tuition dollars may go to state

University administrators have already warned students to prepare for a substantial tuition hike that they say the university needs in order to survive financially.

Now they're worried that a tuition increase may not be as effective as they were expecting.

Although Gov. Janet Napolitano's budget proposal, released early last week, protects the three state universities from funding cuts, administrators and regents are worried that Republican legislators may release a counter-proposal this week that reduces university funding. [Read article]

WILDCAT: So, have you been to Arizona before?

KIRSHNER: No, I haven't.

WILDCAT: Do you like it so far?

KIRSHNER: I do. I like that one street over there. It's the hippie it's holistic.

WILDCAT: Oh, Fourth Avenue?

KIRSHNER: I guess. I'm a hippie myself so I was very pleased to see it. I'm into crystals and incense. [Read article]

Egg donations

Washington Square News The ATM refuses to dispense cash and the receipt reads, "Insufficient funds," and the ads in the WSN become more tempting: "If $7,000 will feel great in your pocket, imagine what you'll feel in your heart. Become an egg donor and fulfill an infertile couple's dream."

Many egg donor programs and individual couples looking for donors advertise in student newspapers to target women between 21 and 32. The ads offer thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars for eggs.

Mind your manners

Brown Daily Herald "As little ships go out to sea, I push my spoon away from me," said Agnes Doody, professor of communications at the University of Rhode Island. Doody led the class through a four-course meal, including difficult-to-eat delicacies like French onion soup and Cornish hens, at the annual Career Week etiquette dinner Friday night.

"Order items that will not challenge you," Doody said. "Spaghetti, for example, is not a good choice."

Prof. denied U.S. entry

Daily Californian When University of California at Berkeley math professor Mehmet Erdogan, a Turkish citizen, said the U.S. embassy denied his initial visa application back into the United States because he shares his name with someone with a criminal record.

"They cannot issue me a visa before they confirm that we are not the same person," Erdogan said in a phone interview from Ankara, Turkey. "It's a little bit strange for me. My research and everything is not here. I can't do much, and it's a problem."

Yesterday's editorial "Irresponsible Pike must lose its ties with UA" referenced a February 2001 hazing violation. While the violation was cited in February, the incident occurred in fall 2000. The editorial also cited a part of the Greek Community Standards of the University of Arizona in relation to alcohol at rush-related events. To clarify, the event last semester where Pike's current violation occurred was not rush-related.

In January 23's article, "Roe v. Wade hits 30, UA speaks out," Students for Choice was wrongly attributed as the organizers of the demonstration. The Tucson chapter of NOW organized the event, and Students for Choice organized the rally held afterward.
