Congress approves $2 million funds for Biotech Institute

After revealing the sign displaying Campaign Arizona's one billion dollar goal, UA President Peter Likins yelled to the crowd "Are you ready to make this happen?"

As hundreds of people waited, the Associated Students' executive board revealed the dollar amount slowly. First they held up a one dollar sign, and Likins convinced everyone the University of Arizona could do better.

"A million? No, a billion dollars," Likins exclaimed as the volunteers and surrounding crowd began to yell.

The goal was not set until 11 a.m. Friday morning, Likins said, and an hour later he announced the goal at Campaign Arizona's kick off.

"It's about you - our students, faculty and staff," Likins said. "We're now ready to move into that public phase."
