OPINION: Hulu vs. Netflix

After getting slashed by a different version of Freddy Krueger – the Washington State Cougars in this case – the Wildcats are in their own version of Nightmare on 1 National Championship Drive. Granted, it’s not quite as catchy, but we’re in the midst of Arizona’s horror story nonetheless. Read more

OPINION: Parking pet peeves

Having been a student at the University of Arizona for over a semester, I think it’s safe to openly complain about the parking situation here on campus. Knowing how I feel, I can just imagine what those who’ve been here longer are going through. Parking on campus is not a walk in the park.
