Connor Fries: From a Cougar to a Wildcat

Jocelyn Reeder, Editor-in-Chief | November 25, 2018

Everybody knows The Arizona Daily Wildcat, but did you know the newspaper barely ever allows a freshman to write for them - except one, Connor Fries. The reason he made the cut was because he was a part of The Paper Cut. "They actually said I was over qualified because I was already an editor and had written so many articles," he told Sahuaro's journalism class when he visited. Connor was qualified...

Immigrant Parents Are a Different Kind of Parent

Sara Righter, Contributor | November 16, 2018

My earliest memories involving my mother and the general public are all the times she got questioned: “Where are you from?” or “What’s that accent?” or the mocking she would endure when her back was turned. When I was younger, I used to think the jokes were funny; I would laugh along, not fully understanding the meaning behind them. Members of my own family would make fun of my mother, whether...

Stop Drinking Cow Milk!

Azalia Munoz, Senior Spotlight Editor | November 29, 2018

I can't remember a time when I was ever told not to drink milk. In kindergarten, the food pyramid lady would come in, and give lessons on nutrition. She would always emphasize the importance of drinking milk, "It makes your bones strong!" All my favorite celebrities would have the 'milk mustache' - promoting to drink milk. All those years I never thought of consequences of drinking milk. In my head,...
