Rosacker 4 After winning the first game students had climbed the mountain and lit the “A” with flares. While this tradition has carried on the only changes that have been made is with who lights the “A” now, “Members of the Bobcat Senior Honorary set up flares on the mountain as part of their tradition. The UA Alumni Association has a concise history of the "A". This is a way to kick off homecoming week. Students and alumni are able to watch from below while eating and taking pictures with Wilbur and Wilma. Another tradition that takes over 30 students to put on is the “iconic Friday night blaze. As it turns out, it takes a village – or at least several dedicated campus and community volunteers – to build a Homecoming fire. The process begins early Friday morning when the 13 members of the University’s Bobcats Senior Honorary, along with about 20 athletes from the UA men’s rugby team, hit the road in a caravan of pick-up trucks to collect the fuel for the fire. The students typically start about 7 a.m., loading up used wood pallets from a local business that keeps plenty in store.” (2012, Blue).While researching many tradation this seems to be one of the top favorites overall. It takes place in the middle of Old main circle on Friday 5-7 pm. Moving forward, Saturdays is when the parade will take place. Around two pm over 50 floats are decorated and presented around different themes. “Our mission is basically to enhance student growth, leadership, and development through networking with alumni at the university and celebrating the tradition of the University of Arizona,” (2019, Hynes). While generally, the traditions have mostly stayed the same. There have also been new traditions added throughout the years. One of the many that have been started is called Glow. It specifically reaches out to alumni that have graduated in the past five years “So it’s going to take place after the bonfire, and it’s going to be a festival, kind of a music festival, for recent alumni

Any recent alum who shows their ID will get a glow stick, and they’ll be able to use the glow sticks at the bonfire.” (2014, Burke).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
