While other fraternities are preparing their own meals, ordering from local restaurants or being served by cooks, one fraternity is enjoying fine dining every day at its chapter house.

The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity has invested in professionally trained chefs to prepare its weekly meals because it finally has a full kitchen, said President Matt Van Horn.

Things you've always never wanted to know

  • Bore-hole seismometry indicates that the land in Oklahoma moves up and down 25 centimeters throughout the day, corresponding with the tides. Earth tides are generally about one-third the size of ocean tides.

  • The Wright brothers spent time observing the flight of the buzzard to help them solve the mystery of flight. They realized that the bird retained balance in the air by twisting the tips of its wings.

    Song can be heard around campus every day at noon

    Every day at the stroke of noon the sound of "Bear Down, Arizona" serenades across campus, but where the sound comes from and the story behind the song are not as obvious.

    "Bear Down, Arizona" has become the school's motto and second fight song since the death of the man who first uttered the words "bear down" in 1926.

    Since 2001, the UA has been playing a recording of the song every day from the Administration building. [Read article]
