Nursing students remember professors


Students fund scholarship in memory of shootings

Students in the College of Nursing are honoring the memory of three professors who were killed by a former student two years ago by raising money to contribute to a scholarship in memory of the professors.

On Oct. 28, 2002, Robert S. Flores Jr., a student who was distraught over failing grades and problems at home, entered the office of professor Robin E. Rogers and shot her multiple times, killing her. He then moved to a classroom full of students taking a midterm and shot and killed professors Barbara Monroe and Cheryl McGaffic. After allowing the students to leave, Flores turned the gun on himself. It is considered the bloodiest day in UA history. [Read article]

Volleyball: Cats' Mulvaney lays low


Senior libero sets sights on national title, not statbook in final season

Senior libero Kelli Mulvany knows how to lay low.

On the court, she hovers over the floor and is careful not to let a ball drop. Off the court, she has much of the same attitude, not taking too much credit for her contributions or drawing too much attention to herself.

But then again, she doesn't need to. Her play speaks volumes itself.

Mulvany has recorded double-digit digs 12 times this season and averages 3.05 digs per game. She has also led the team in digs 12 times including in eight of nine Pacific 10 Conference matches. [Read article]

Jimmy Eat World exploded onto the national music scene when "The Middle" hit "TRL" in 2001 and stayed in rotation on VH1 for a couple more years. Since then, life hasn't been quite the same for guitarist Tom Linton.

Their increased popularity has taken them all over the world and to star-studded events. At the MTV Video Music Awards, Linton even got to meet one of his idols.  [ Read article]
