Gupta promises bold steps


Presidential candidate Yash Gupta started off his student forum yesterday by calling students "trustees" and the sole reason a university exists.

As a strategy for attempting to get funding from the legislature, Gupta said he would push the return and outcome of giving to state universities.

Economics gives presidential candidates focus


When the four finalists for UA president were announced last week, economics majors like me homed in on one aspect - two of them have backgrounds in the field.

Fire twirling, sword swallowing on club's weekly agenda

There's a little pyromaniac in all of us. Blame our caveman instincts, but our fascination with this force of nature - both destructive and life-sustaining - starts with childhood, where experiments with a Zippo lighter and your mother's industrial-sized can of hairspray gives you hours of fun and, if you're lucky, a brand-new set of eyebrows.
