The Honors Village is opening in Fall 2019, and while some students are excited to go, others have their reservations about the idea altogether. These are what some columnists think about the Honors Village's exclusivity.
Next year, Yuma will no longer be an honors dorm. Students who want to live in a designated honors community will need to live in the new Honors Village. I think this is a mistake.
Usually, Homecoming Week passes by before undergraduates give it a second thought. The events aren’t for us—we’re already home. The ones who do think about it might say it’s pointless or that it’s just another way for the alumni association to make money. However, homecoming should have a bigger impact on the consciences of undergraduates than anyone else.
The U of A has had many alumni who have gone off to do great things. Here are some of our favorites.
Like many Tucsonans, I have a few criticisms of the streetcar (and I’m still a little sore from the time the ticket machine ate my $20). Overall, though, I think it does a great job linking the heart of Tucson together. But it’s just way too expensive.
An estimated 75% of all mobile phones in the United States received a 'Presidential Alert' last Wednesday. This is what four columnists think about the new mandated alert.
Family members will forever be a strong source of inspiration, hope and reliable advice. This week we ask the Daily Wildcat staff who inspires them in their family
Set against the backdrop of recent sexual assault allegations leveled at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, what do our columnists think of an inflammatory tweet from Vox-contributor Eve Foster?
Whether you love Martha McSally, hate her or feel indifferent, don’t vote for her. You’ll get what you want, and Arizona will get a great representative outcome.
Apple's bigger-screen iPhones are being slammed by some for being 'too big' for women's hands. Find out what our columnists think about it Daily Wildcat's Issue of the Week
Surely, my 17-year-old self would have cried knowing what I have become, but it’s no use to think about principle. I see the election signs, but I just don’t feel it. I don’t believe in it this time around.
Food and everything that surrounds it happens in a uniquely Russian way here in Russia. And that “Russian way” is different than a lot of us Americans expected. Kasha makes up a pretty large part of our diet, so I’ll give it its due place here. Breakfasts at the university cafeteria always include kasha, which is a slightly-sweet or savory butter-heavy grain porridge. Russians love it, and many eat it regularly. Per capita, Russians eat 33 pounds of it a year, which puts them at #1 in porridge consumption.
Hello from Mother Russia! I’m spending my summer in Moscow on a University of Arizona study abroad program and will be giving you all updates — kind of like a travel blog, but worse (or better?), because it’s less bloggy.
Have you seen him on campus? I mean, if you’re ever on campus, you probably have. I have seen him six times already, he’s made time to say hello to me on three occasions, and I’ve heard of his presence in the area probably a dozen times otherwise.
People try to rationalize carnivals in many ways. I don’t think most reasons make any sense. Some say that fairs are actually healthy, that walking around for a day and going on rides gives us about the same workout as we’d get spending an hour and a half at the gym. Though, I think that these people foolishly assume I’m not going to eat ice-cream, a corn dog, a funnel cake and maybe a slice of pizza.
Our influence over law is often limited, but we can change the way we think about our language privilege and how we treat others in light of this knowledge.
When I picked up Ana Consuelo Matiella’s book “The Truth about Alicia,” I found a gem of a completely different kind than I was used to. I recommend this book of short stories to anyone wanting to step away from mainstream reading, or anyone interested in genuine human stories.
We have to do more than hope and care. Actions, even at the micro-level, matter. It was the actions of participants in the Civil Rights Movement — Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, protesters organized sit-ins at the Woolworth lunch counter, etc. — that gave way to bigger events and bigger marches, which led to the Civil Rights Act.
This network does more than give food to people who need it. It works to lift up Tucson’s community and bring it closer together.
