The Arizona Board of Regents are meeting today and tomorrow in the Memorial Union Alumni Lounge at Arizona State University in Tempe.
The regents are scheduled today to discuss affirmative action and the implications for the Arizona University System and the operating budget requests of the three state universities.
Streamlining the Fling
Spring Fling '96 promises to be a more streamlined carnival with a larger focus on quality rather than competition for booths and events.
Last year's event, while financially successful, "got kind of stagnant," said Kirk Seeley, 1996 Spring Fling director. "In a lot respects, there's nothing unique about it anymore."
Seeley and his team are working with a number of new ideas to improve the carnival.
"We are looking to enhance the entertainment on Friday and Saturday night and trying to bring some neat attractions that will not cost extra," Seeley said. "We've really examined the way Spring Fling runs and looked at who's coming and why they're coming."
Now in its 22nd year, Spring Fling is a well-established Arizona event and is the largest student-run carnival in the nation.
