Regents to hold executive session to discuss 4 finalists, vote on president

The Arizona Board of Regents could select the next UA president today when it meets on campus, officials said.

The regents will meet in executive session today at 10 a.m. in the "Swede" Johnson building to discuss which candidate should be the next UA president.

Although a decision today is unlikely, it is not completely out of the question, said Regent Fred Boice, chair of the Presidential Search Committee. He added that the regents cannot reach a decision in private because the vote must be made publicly. [Read article]

Arizona rolls into Chapel Hill on 3-game win streak

If the 2004-05 Arizona men's basketball team had held on for the Elite Eight upset against Illinois and then taken out Louisville in the Final Four, this might be the most hyped rematch of the year for college basketball.

Global Gupta best choice for UA


The UA is beset by problems: an unwieldy state Legislature, financial woes, class shortages, underpaid faculty and a retention rate that makes New York inner-city high schools look prestigious. Undergraduate and graduate students remain disunited. ASUA is filled with self-congratulating narcissists. The student body is still too homogenous.

Fire twirling, sword swallowing on club's weekly agenda

Blame our caveman instincts, but our fascination with this force of nature - both destructive and life-sustaining - starts with childhood, where experiments with a Zippo lighter and your mother's industrial-sized can of hairspray gives you hours of fun and, if you're lucky, a brand-new set of eyebrows.
