Budget Meeting: Tuition hikes expected as funds fall


Likins, Davis talk tuition, funding

Students can expect more money to go toward increasing class availability for courses in high demand, officials said at a Campus Town Hall meeting Thursday.

President Peter Likins and Provost George Davis discussed the UA budget and the state budget request and how the lack of state funding could result in more tuition hikes.

Because of financial strains, the state Legislature has decreased funding for universities over the past five years. Likins said there is a national trend of decreased funding to public universities, with most receiving 25 percent or less of their budgets from the state. [Read article]

Errors hound Cats in letdown loss


Huskies reel off 24 unanswered second-half points in mauling of turnover-prone Wildcats

Fueling the Bush crazy train


"Gimme blood. Gimme blood. Gimme blood pollution." Wow, are those lyrics to a Steel Dragon song or a good summary of President Bush's terms in office? I'm having a hard time distinguishing between the two.

The Bush administration's foreign policy stance has been wanting over the past six years. First, it tells the international community to shove it, causing enormous rifts in alliances dating back decades.

Next, it illegally invades a sovereign nation on unfounded claims that said nation poses an imminent threat to the national security of the U.S. Now it engages in an unwinnable war against terrorism. [Read article]

HBO's "Sex and the City" has been off the air since 2004, and we are no longer able to tune in to lives of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda on Sunday evenings. Yes, the DVDs are out there and TBS has been showing the edited reruns during the week, but it is just not the same. Girl bonding entertainment is lacking these days.

You might, however, be able to get your fix of female saga on stage. Students from the School of Theatre Arts are putting on "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress," a play that reflects the lives and relationships of women. [Read article]
