Students and the public at large can expect more from the Student Recreation Center's Instructional Kitchen this semester, officials say. Oh, you didn't know the Rec Center had a kitchen?

*Dear clean notebooks*, I love the arrival of every new semester because it means I can freely wander Target's aisles of school supplies, take advantage of back-to-school bargains and marvel at all your unmarred pages. Classmates who rely on their laptops don't get you the way I do.

Dear UA students,
It’s 8 p.m., and you’re poor. You don’t know how many more programs in the basement you can drag yourself to just to score some free pizza. Not to mention you aren’t sure how many more cups of Easy Mac you can nab from your neighbors whose parents have loaded them up with enough food to last until the next Cold War.
Technically, “One Day” is a romance film. But nearly as often as we see them, Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) are just outside of love. They are, if you will, in a best friendship … and it’s complicated.

The UA’s School of Music offers hundreds of concerts and recitals among its array of showings this year. Changes in administration at the school have changed the school from the top down. This includes Rex A. Woods as the new director, Bruce Chamberlain as assistant director for student services, Edward Reid as assistant director for advancement and development, and John Brobeck, director of graduate studies. With dozens of events on the calendar this semester, the Daily Wildcat pulled three for the fall to showcase what the school has to offer from now to winter break.
*The food:* “Chicken and waffles?” I hear you ask. “Chicken and WAFFLES?!” At May’s Counter on Speedway Boulevard, you run into this immensely pleasing and blood-clotting combination of deep-fried chicken and waffles hot off the griddle, put together on the same plate under a deeply satisfying smothering of hot sauce, butter and maple syrup.

Less than a month before “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” opened, the author of the series, J.K. Rowling, uploaded one of the most cryptic YouTube videos I’d ever seen. Thanks to it, though, Potter fans were riled up. No one knew what this “Pottermore” she spoke of was — probably something to do with more Potter — but everyone wanted to find out.
The public got their first peek at art for the modern streetcar route on Thursday.
Mexican, Chinese, Italian, French. If you’re making this list, you’re either in a Geography 101 course, you’re plotting a round-the-world vacation or you’re trying to think of different types of “ethnic” food we have here on campus. Not the largest list, is it? While the masses don’t seem to be starving, the fact remains that the pickings out there are still pretty slim.
