Regents: 9.8 percent tuition hike


Regents nix Likins', students' proposals,

The Arizona Board of Regents raised tuition 9.8 percent for resident undergraduates yesterday, rejecting both student and administrative tuition proposals and instead approved an unexpected proposal released this week.

In a last-minute move, Regents Fred Boice and Bob Bulla drafted their own tuition proposal, which they said was intended to be a compromise between what students and university presidents recommended. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Cats maul Golden Bears


Arizona pummels Cal, leads by 30 in 2nd half

Arizona men's basketball head coach Lute Olson mentioned earlier this week that the fourth No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament was there for the taking for his Wildcats.

It all depended, he said, on how a few teams perform in their respective conference tournaments this weekend.

Safety 101: Don't forget what McGruff teaches

Last October, serial rapist James Allen Selby was convicted of sexually assaulting several Tucson women and a teenage girl in their homes. A number of Selby's attacks happened right here in the UA area.

Two weeks ago, the University of Arizona Police Department issued a Campus Alert, warning students that several burglaries and sexual assaults have again occurred near the UA.

In other words, students beware. Rapists still loom about campus. The UA area isn't a crime-free bubble. [Read article]

The language barriers in the United States speak loudly for those who exist in smaller countries, like Bosnia-Herzegovina.

In his ongoing mission to help bridge language, cultural and social barriers between the United States and Europe, Semezdin Mehmedinovic will share his poems, essays and short stories at the UA later this month.

Born in the northern Bosnian town, Tuzla, in 1960, Mehmedinovic moved to Sarajevo in 1979 to study comparative literature and library sciences at the University of Sarajevo, graduating in 1983. [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]
