The word ‘Administration’ makes me think of this building as the heart of campus. No longer where our administration works, the building itself lends...
Students at UAA are all too familiar with the rising cost of college education. Protests on campus last year demonstrated that many students were not pleased with the Board of Regent’s proposed tuition hikes. I suspect that proposed tuition hikes in the future will be met with a similar response.
It feels like yesterday that fall classes started. And yet here we are, already past midterms, and many of us are close to choosing classes for the spring semester.

Former Mayor Begich left us with a $17 million budget deficit. He departed to D.C. smelling like a rose, leaving our city in the hole. Furthermore, he was well aware of this deliberate shortage. To our detriment, liberal candidates for mayor Matt Claman and Sheila Selkregg voted to approve this atrocious budget insufficiency.
One may not expect such open-minded answers from the president of Students for Life. O’Neil, the recently appointed president of Students for Life, said “My interest...
In recent weeks, we’ve been going down the line of states to see which will dare to call their amply decorated and brightly lit spruce trees Christmas trees or holiday trees. In Rhode Island, it’s a holiday tree, though calling it so cause much grief for Gov. Chafee.
