Best of the best sit on stage during ceremonies


Of the more than 4,000 undergraduates receiving degrees during Saturday's commencement ceremonies, six graduates will be honored for their years of hard work and dedication with special honors and the chance to sit on stage.

Alistair Chapman and Xuemei Cai will receive the Freeman Medal, which is awarded each year to one man and one woman selected by administration for their moral character and community involvement.

The Nugent Awards, created in memory of Robert Logan Nugent who was the UA's executive vice president when he died in 1963, will go to Joshua Wright and Megan Hammer. [Read article]

Athlete of the Year: Shooting star


Sharpshooter Salim Stoudamire steals the show during senior year

Though Salim remains shy and, to a point, misunderstood, the final hurrah in his senior season was one he said he thoroughly enjoyed.

Out was the scowl on the face of Stoudamire after missing shots, described by many, including head coach Lute Olson, as a perfectionist who is very hard on himself. In was the smile seldom seen in his first three years. [Read article]

Issue of the year: The events that changed our lives


Basketball's back at the UA (Did it ever leave?); Dubya's back as well, for a few more years; The Yankees might not be back for a while; And, maybe, Ugg boots should have never arrived in the first place.

Do you believe in aliens, Tom?


Spielberg, Cruise battle martians

He's not the tallest leading man in Hollywood, but film stars don't get much bigger (or hotter) than Tom Cruise. Plus, considering the fact that he's super nice, Cruise has not allowed his fame, wealth or series of scandals go to his head.

Now in his early 40s, Cruise has managed to stay young in heart and mind. He really does love to laugh, he loves to shoot the breeze, and he even does a decent Napoleon Dynamite impression. (And dating Katie Holmes ain't bad either.) [Read article]
