UA to add College of Optical Sciences

TEMPE - The Optical Sciences Center became the College of Optical Sciences last week, gaining academic status as part of President Peter Likins' Focused Excellence initiative to cultivate "excellent" programs.

The Arizona Board of Regents approved the move, which will boost the recruitment of top students and increase grant funding for an already strong program with 535 students, 75 teaching and research faculty members and two Nobel laureates. With $12.6 million research grants in 2004, the program ranks sixth among UA departments in research funding and expects a 5 percent increase in external funding as a result of the change.

Setting the standard for future student leaders
photo The UA welcomes thousands of diverse and extraordinary students each year. An exceptional number of these students leave their mark upon this great campus as student leaders of clubs, organizations, fraternities, sororities, residence halls, college student governments, and the other countless associations created and led by students at the UA. Although it seems difficult to point out only one of these leaders within a campus that is inching closer to its maximum capacity of 40,000 students, one does not have to look far in order to single out Alistair Chapman as the most active advocate of student needs and concerns that has emerged from our student body this year. Alistair Chapman has been the champion of the student voice, serving us as our student body president for the past 12 months. And at noon today, his term will come to an end. [Read article]

'American Dad' joins forces with 'Family Guy'

Before you go to bed tonight, pat yourself on the back for being a college student. Seth MacFarlane, creator and vocal star of "Family Guy" is in your debt ever since Fox resurrected the show this season.

"To me, the biggest audiences are colleges," MacFarlane said. "As far as the show being brought back, it was the adult 18-to-34 audience that did it and that's really the audience that we write for." [Read article]

Exploring the female orgasm: coming to the point

Her body curls and clenches with tingles of pleasure, a feeling some UA women have yet to understand or experience.

Regardless, if a woman is exploring with the different types of orgasms, masturbating, or learning how to get off without faking it, experts agree being comfortable is essential for achieving an orgasm.

Though some women may feel like a victim of orgasmic dysfunction, or the inability to climax during sex, experts said this diagnosis is rare for young women. Instead of needing medical treatment, college-aged women can usually find orgasmic relief from different methods of arousal and self-discovery. [Read article]
