Likins' tuition plan adds class availability

President Peter Likins defended his tuition and mandatory fees proposal this week, saying his plan would generate funding for course availability, but student leaders are worried students won't reap the benefits of his proposed tuition increase.

Likins said while the student tuition proposal will generate money for course availability, his potential budget could provide substantially more than that figure, although he would not disclose the amount. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Cats edge Cougars in OT

Frye nets career-high 26 points in close win

It almost happened again.

But this time, Ivan Radenovic and the

No. 9 Arizona men's basketball team escaped with a 57-56 overtime victory over Washington State at Friel Court last night.

As Derrick Low's last-second 3-pointer clanked off the front rim and Radenovic clutched the rebound, the Wildcats were less jubilated than they were relieved, knowing they were almost swept by Washington State for the first time since the 1982-83 season. [Read article]

When ambition becomes folly

Facing a tight job market and unprecedented competition, today's college students are pressured more than ever to succeed in a world that won't always let them. But straining to achieve a lofty post-graduate goal, be it an enviable corporate post or an elusive spot at a prestigious school of law or medicine, can be detrimental.

It's no secret that many contemporary college students are increasingly ambitious. Ohio State University, held by The New York Times to be "emblematic" of college campuses nationwide, recorded a 30 percent jump in the rate of students graduating with double majors last year. And in a trend that should come as no surprise to campus job recruiters, a survey by Experience Inc. indicates that 64 percent of graduating students this year will have held at least one internship, a full 12 percent more than one year ago.

Sometimes it's fun to imagine that characters in Shakespeare's plays are real people. That, after the play is over, they go home, plunk down on their couches and flip on the TV. Othello likes "Fear Factor" and Hamlet is a big "Six Feet Under" fan. On Saturday nights their cell phones ring, and they're out the door.

But if Shakespeare's characters were real, I would also imagine that some of them wouldn't be as popular as the Prince of Denmark. On Saturday night Pericles sits alone in his studio apartment, waiting for the phone to ring, hoping that Lady Macbeth will invite him to the party. [Read article]

Hookah offers safe and relaxing alternatives

College students are always looking for the newest, hippest and easiest trends to keep their bored little minds occupied. While smoking weed will always be fashionable, it's illegal too. As an alternative, locals, young and old, are getting together to smoke the legal way, with the help of the hookah.

The pastime has become even more popular in Tucson since Roger Smiley and his wife Sarah opened Smiley's Ultimate Hookah Lounge and Coffee last year. [Read article]
