School has started and already the citations are flying, at least in Coronado Residence Hall.

New program targets alumni connections

UA graduates can maintain and rekindle their connection to the university with a new alumni association that is launching its membership program today.

Samantha Zipp, director of Membership and Marketing for the Alumni Association, said the membership program is a response to a market research survey that said graduates would pay to be better connected and get services unique to UA alumni.

    "So what's with all those mysterious stairways that I see around campus? Are there secret underground tunnels or something? What the heck's down there?"
