photo Fees may cost some students

Incoming business and nursing undergraduates may have to empty more from their pockets to pay for tuition next year.

Administrators announced yesterday that they are requesting business management undergraduates to pay an additional $250 per semester while nursing undergraduates pay an additional $1,000 per year.

These fees would be on top of the $1,000 tuition increase for resident undergraduates. [Read article]

Tuition benefits won't be instant

Students likely won't see benefits next year if regents approve a proposed $1,000 tuition increase, but the university would face a dire financial situation without the hike.

So said President Pete Likins yesterday afternoon, shortly after formally proposing tuition hikes of $1,000 for in-state undergraduates, $1,250 for out-of-state undergraduates and in-state graduate students, and $1,500 for out-of-state graduate students. [Read article]

Students juggle work, classes

Balancing act teaches time management skills

A large number of UA students spend their nights flipping burgers instead of flipping text book pages, according to a Campus Health survey.

A Campus Health study conducted during the 2000-2001 school year found that 81 percent of incoming freshmen said they planned to work while attending the UA.

Sixty-one percent of UA students work 11 hours or more per week, the study stated. [Read article]

photo Professor running for mayor, again

Former mayor and current UA political science professor Tom Volgy announced yesterday that he will challenge Mayor Bob Walkup in a bid to win back his old job.

More than 150 people, including UA students, showed up to a Democrats of Greater Tucson meeting yesterday to support Volgy.

Volgy said he was surprised to see so many people at the meeting, including his students.

"It was truly humbling," Volgy said. "I didn't invite (my students) because I don't recruit students for my campaigns, but I was really surprised." [Read article]

Legislature's bill to auction off dorms unlikely to pass

PHOENIX ÷ Sen. Robert Burns (R-Phoenix) introduced a bill yesterday to auction off all UA residence halls that have been paid for in full.

The bill, if passed by the legislature and signed by the governor, would mean higher expenses for students who live on campus.

Burns said Friday that he planned to introduce the bill, which proposes that the UA sell its residence halls, the land beneath the residence halls and any dining facilities within the halls to the highest bidder. [Read article]

photo Payment may violate NCAA rules

The UA men's basketball team may have violated NCAA regulations when assistant coaches reimbursed a Kansas hotel $80 for candy on Jan. 25.

NCAA rules state that schools may provide three meals a day, or $10 for each meal, per player.

Following the Wildcats' 91-74 victory over Kansas, UA coaches reportedly gave $80 to desk assistant Michael Moore of the Marriott Spring Hill Suites in Lawrence, Kan. [Read article]

New policy aims to protect faculty

Students who threaten or physically abuse a teacher will likely face being administratively dropped from the course or expelled from UA, under a policy adopted yesterday by the Faculty Senate.

The plan will now be officially incorporated into university policy.

Under the plan, students who endanger, threaten or cause harm to faculty members, teaching assistants or other teaching staff can be automatically dropped from the course. A second offense can be cause for expulsion. [Read article]

Collegiate Cocktail

Police admit lying

University of Colorado Colorado Daily ÷ After a scuffle in which University of Colorado police and a student exchanged pepper spray at a peace rally Wednesday, police now admit they sprayed first.

Police spokesman Tim McGraw had said Wednesday that police only used pepper spray in self-defense after being sprayed by a student.

McGraw said Thursday that investigations had revealed that officers had, in fact, shot the irritating chemicals first in an act of "crowd management."

Testing for the EPA

Middle Tennessee State Sidelines÷ The Middle Tennessee State University aerospace department has assisted the Environmental Protection Agency in testing some new emission equipment.

The new equipment measures exhaust and other emissions given off by cars, planes and other vehicles. Emissions from factories can also be measured using the new equipment.

Most of the research has been done by the aerospace department's maintenance management sector.

Fraternity in trouble
Cal Poly

Mustang Daily ÷ Members of Sigma Chi fraternity are being served a summons and complaint that allegedly holds nine members responsible for the death of Brian Gillis, a Sigma Chi member who died last April from a Gamma-Hydroxybutrate overdose.

Parents Patricia and Leo Gillis have filed the lawsuit and are suing the members for violation of the education code, unfair business practices and six causes of negligence, including endangerment and abandonment, failure to obtain medical care and infliction of emotional distress.
