Likins may consider mid-year tuition hike

Elective courses will be cancelled next semester due to budget cuts

UA President Peter Likins announced at last night's ASUA meeting that he may support a mid year tuition increase if the state Legislature cuts funding to the UA by a substantial enough amount.

Political cartoon offensive

I am appalled that the Wildcat staff chose to print the political cartoon in the Oct. 4 issue (Page 4, Perspectives). This comic showed a group of ragged and pierced protesters with peace signs in the sight of a rifle, apparently about to be shot. The caption included an invitation to Osama bin Laden for a group hug...
