On some days, it seems like they're everywhere. Whether it's a preacher sharing his Christian doctrine or a Hare Krishna playing a tambourine, it feels like religion often tries to nudge its way into UA students' everyday lives.

While it may appear that many students have grown weary of the constant bombardment of different dogmas, doctrines and beliefs while on the University of Arizona campus, three centers - The Hillel Foundation, The Islamic Center of Tucson and Campus Christian Center - exist in an attempt to help students adjust to campus life and answer questions about faith and the brooding personal questions that tend to plague college-aged students.

The memories of The Hut - the bar engulfed in flames after rioting citizens decided to turn over a family's RV, destroying everything inside - have begun to fade from everyone's minds.

Nearly 1,704 hours have passed since members of the Tucson Police Department handled - some say questionably - the uprisings that developed in the center of Tucson's nightlife center.
