A year ago, nature lovers from around the world couldn't get enough of the nest on which a video camera was trained, recording every movement of the mother and her two babies. A shadowbox now marks the spot on the building's fifth floor. http://bit.ly/2ahCXQh
The world was watching — and rather intently — a year ago after a black-chinned hummingbird laid two eggs in a small nest she had built on the fifth floor of the Environment and Natural Resources 2 building on the University of Arizona campus. Nature lovers from around the globe became riveted to the nest, thanks to a video camera that recorded every movement of the mother and her two babies, nicknamed "Jack" and "Jill." It wasn't long before new...

The largest haul of confirmed planets obtained since the space observatory transitioned to a different mode of observing includes a planetary system comprising four promising planets that could be rocky. http://bit.ly/2a5BYT2
An international team of astronomers led by the University of Arizona has discovered and confirmed a treasure trove of new worlds using NASA's Kepler spacecraft on its K2 mission. Among the findings tallying 197 initial planet candidates, scientists have confirmed 104 planets outside our solar system. Among the confirmed is a planetary system comprising four promising planets that could be rocky.

The chances of surviving heat stroke are only 50 percent, says Sam Keim, chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine. http://bit.ly/29z9elA
Anyone who has spent a summer in Phoenix or Tucson has heard the warnings: Stay indoors when temperatures soar. Still, every year people in those cities fall victim to heat-related illness and even death.

Thought Luke Skywalker’s home planet, Tatooine, was strange? UA astronomers have discovered a planet in a system of not two, but three stars. http://bit.ly/29pEtQ1
If you thought Luke Skywalker's home planet, Tatooine, was a strange world with its two suns in the sky, imagine this: a planet where you'd either experience constant daylight or enjoy triple sunrises and sunsets each day, depending on the seasons, which happen to last longer than human lifetimes.

UA's Dustin Williams will serve as the head athletic trainer for the U.S. track and field team in Rio de Janeiro in August. http://bit.ly/29jLcL2
Dustin Williams speaks the universal language of athletes. It's not just that he has completed 10 marathons and a triathlon, nor that he is married to Jill Camarena-Williams, who has a chance to make this year's U.S. Olympic track and field team. It's not even that he has been around the world, having worked events in Berlin, Beijing, South Korea, Poland and other far-off locations.

Seven years ago, the University undertook the creation of an online service to help match students with scholarships. Today, that web-based technology is being commercialized to help hundreds of thousands of students. http://bit.ly/2anJuGe
In March 2009, the University of Arizona undertook the creation of an online service to save students time and increase their ability to attend college by matching them with scholarships. The UA Student Affairs staff created and executed the system vision and algorithm, and hired students to support operations and development.

Twice a day, a balloon goes up and important data comes down to meteorologists at Tucson's National Weather Service, whose offices are located on campus at the Environment and Natural Resources building. http://bit.ly/2ac5Xpt
It's a little before 4 o'clock on a July afternoon atop the Environment and Natural Resources building at the University of Arizona. A nearby wind gauge detects a breeze blowing from the west. A thermometer reads 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

The film, based on UA faculty member Joe Sharkey's 1992 non-fiction book, "Above Suspicion," stars Emilia Clarke of "Game of Thrones" and Jack Huston of "Ben-Hur." http://bit.ly/29usvUQ
Joe Sharkey stared at the actors' call sheet on the first day of filming and finally allowed himself to celebrate. "OK, now it's real. There's film in the camera, and I have the crew call," said the University of Arizona School of Journalism adjunct instructor who waited nearly 25 years to see his true-crime book, "Above Suspicion," be made into a major motion picture.

Formerly known as 1999 RQ36, the space rock was chosen by process of elimination as the destination for the UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission, which will pick up a sample of its regolith and return it to Earth for analysis. Launch is little more than two months away. http://bit.ly/298nFLO #AsteroidDay
Carl Hergenrother fingers a stack of white, 8½- by 11-inch paper that sits before him on his desk. As he flips through the inch-thick dossier, lines of type are clearly visible. "This is everything we know about Bennu," says Hergenrother, glancing down at the pile of paper.

Pretty campus but annoying people. This place is full of rich liberal snobs and a million foreigners (which is fine but they're like talking to a wall sometimes). There's shootings and sexual assaults here quite a bit. Not mass shootings but there are shootings. You need an indestructible lock for every part on your bike. If you like getting drunk everyday and doing nothing else this may be the place for you.

UA is a party school at its core. Academics are in the second or third tier, but they charge no less than a pound of flesh. The fierce loyalty it inspires is typically due in part to the athletic programs or recent graduates who are eager to justify their bad investment. Many of the degrees offered here are worth less than the paper. Tucson is full of UA grads working as waiters or retail cashiers. There are some graduate level programs of interest at UA, but if you are a prospective parent looking at schools for your urchins, caveat emptor. This campus is a liberal "safe space" where ideas outside of the politically correct orthodoxy are viewed with increasing disdain.

This is one of the best Universities that I've ever been to. I came here on many different occasions from Christmas plays to meeting with Clients and every time I've been very impressed with their campus, staff, education, and curriculum.

I had a great education. Went to the John's Hopkins for my masters and truly believe I got a better education for the money here. A true educational treasure.

I had the worst college experience at U of A. The business program was not even at a high school level. The professors had no idea how to manage a classroom. I never showed up to class and still got all A's and B's. Oh and if you want a good party school don't go here unless you want to pay hundreds of dollars to join a Greek organization. I transferred to ASU after my first year and that was the best decision of my life. That whole "school" can bear down on my wiener. Go Devils!
