    This Day at the UA

    On Oct. 12, 2001, the Arizona Daily Wildcat reported that the Arizona International College would close and its faculty and staff would lose their jobs as their contracts expired. No new students would be admitted to the college, though current students would have four years to complete their degrees. “”This is the only college that the university would even consider cutting,”” said President Peter Likins. AIC was a liberal arts college intended to one day become an independent campus.

    The same day, the Wildcat reported that depression rates among students had remained stable despite the trauma of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks a month before. “”I think (the attacks) have increased people’s anxiety level about the world,”” said Marian Binder, a clinical psychologist for UA Counseling and Psychological Services. “”But it’s not like, as individuals, people are getting more depressed because of this.””
