Construction of the ILC, originally slated for completion next May, is more than two months behind schedule and will likely not be completed in time for freshmen to use next fall, UA construction officials said yesterday.

Brian Dolan, University of Arizona construction project manager for the Integrated Learning Center, said a few surprises along with the complexity of the project are the primary causes behind the delay.

The man accused in the February stabbing of a gay UA student is being evaluated at a state mental hospital to determine if he is competent enough to stand trial.

Gary Grayson, 37, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault for the Feb. 6 stabbing of Zach Hansen, a University of Arizona philosophy junior.

However, Grayson's trial has been stayed until at least January, pending the outcome of a mental health evaluation, said Pima County prosecutor Sue Eazer.

Credit cards offer Instant gratifications, potential for grave consequences

Every day throughout campus, tables stacked with innocuous-looking T-shirts, teddy bears and day planners lure UA students to fill out applications for credit cards.

However, these gifts hardly give hint to the implications of the credit cards that accompany them. Credit cards require a level of responsibility that many students fresh out of high school may not yet be ready for.
