A new turfgrass is being tested that would retain its color longer — and potentially keep courses from having to perform costly overseeding procedures in the fall, enhancing their bottom line. http://bit.ly/23OydDF
Dave Kopec places a blade of grass between his teeth while he contemplates a question from a visitor to the University of Arizona's Karsten Turfgrass Research Facility. The guest is asking about the care and feeding of turf, the kind that carpets golf courses throughout the Southwest, including Tucson.

Sports-related concussions are now part of the national conversation, and a team of UA researchers — including football players Jason Sweet and Scooby Wright — is teaching athletes to recognize and report the signs.http://bit.ly/1Kqlr7Q
Despite new concussion-management protocols in the NCAA and NFL, many athletes still don't recognize concussion symptoms or won't report them if they do. The University of Arizona creators of BrainGainz, a virtual-reality app that allows users to experience the symptoms of concussion, hope to change that.

In a newly published co-authored book, UA alumni Corey Seemiller and Meghan Grace attempt to bring clarity to the similarities and differences between Generation Z and millennials http://bit.ly/20jUPMW
The higher-education sector had begun to make technological and teaching adjustments based on the demands of the tech-savvy millennial generation — and now comes a new crop, Generation Z. University of Arizona alumni Corey Seemiller and Meghan Grace have just published results from a nationwide study on the educational motivations and learning styles of Generation Z, also called Net Generation and iGeneration, whose members were born between 1995...

With the changes, the UA football team will face Stanford on Homecoming and USC on Family Weekend. http://bit.ly/23u1inJ

Flashback Friday: Meet some of the members of the 1967 University of Arizona marching band (now The Pride of Arizona), who performed during the first Super Bowl, reunited at the azcentral newsroom. Bear Down! http://bit.ly/1UQWMK7
It was not Beyonce or Coldplay. For Super Bowl I, the halftime entertainment was a band from Tucson. A marching band from the University of Arizona.

The effort to end 'rape culture' has received support across campus from a number of organizations and leaders. http://bit.ly/1P4qnhk
University of Arizona students have launched "I Will," a campaign to end "rape culture" by raising awareness of sexual assault and promoting consent through a variety of campus events, including a resource fair, workshops and an information session with the dean of students. The campaign is the result of efforts by student volunteers and the guidance and cooperation of a number of campus organizations.

Over the span of a 49-game home winning streak, it would make sense if the victories came in all shapes and sizes http://bit.ly/20ePjI0
The Arizona Wildcats extended the nation's longest active home winning streak to 49 consecutive games. ArizonaWildcats.com takes us inside the numbers of this impressive streak.

This place is a joke, They charge ridiculous amounts for everything and charge for things you don't want or need. They are real quick to take your money but won't give refunds for anything. GREEDY!

Unfortunately, I cannot give this university a single star. The University of Arizona has a long history of breaking Federal EEOC Law when it comes to their employees. Examples such as a worker getting cancer, then taking FMLA time off for chemo treatments, then coming back to work and immediately getting fired. Or an individual who needs to be in a wheelchair due to health issues getting fired after the fact. Or another individual who took FMLA until his leg repaired coming back to work and a few days later getting set up for a "theft" and subsequently fired. The supervisors are never held accountable for their misdeeds and law breaking; in fact, the University's HR department willingly looks the other way and in some cases covers things up. To sum up, the University of Arizona needs to have a thorough EEOC investigation into its lawless actions against all employees and the disabled who have suffered. Those responsible (the University as an entity itself as well as the individual managers and HR personnel) should be sued in a court of law. The Federal gov't should withhold any and all funding/grants until this very serious matter is remedied.

Worst office ever. Never alerted me through email once I had a new past due balance on my account the day before enrollment. They have laced a hold on my account and I wasn't able to add classes necessary for me to graduate until they were full. They literally made me stay at this school longer so they could take more of my money.

I love this university. Such a great community. I learned a lot about the world and what it has to offer. I expanded my interest and made life long friends. I never had a problem with financial aid office, room and board, or faculty (although some I liked more than others). This institution does not beat you over the head with tradition like some schools which is why it appealed to me. It also is not a school obsessed with partying, but they do like to have fun. Diverse, inclusive, and affordable. I am glad I chose wild cat country. Bear Down Arizona!

The cornerstone of activity in Tucson, the UofA's global presence can be felt anywhere you go in town. A gorgeous campus with great outdoor spaces and venues, fantastic event attraction and management, and fantastic architecture. As a collegiate institution, however, it does have it's faults. Exorbitant fees tacked on to every bloated tuition bill, financial aid is incredibly hit or miss, and as a Veteran, the VA outreach center and staff were not at all exemplary in 2011-2013.
