2 It was in 1885 that the Thirteenth Territorial Legislature founded the University of Arizona with an appropriation of $25,000 but no land. This appropriation was not welcomed by many residents of Tucson and Pima County, as they were looking for either the state Capitol building, a prison, or even an asylum for the insane but definitely not a university. The money would be available on the condition that the community provided a suitable site. Just before the $25,000 was to be returned to the Legislature, two gamblers and a saloon-keeper donated 40 acres Classes began in 1891 with 32 students and six teachers, all accommodated in one building. The first class graduated in 1895 when three students received their degrees. Today the University of Arizona is in the top 15% of world universities. It has grown to more than 40,000 students and 14,000 faculty and staff members on a campus of 378 acres. The University is organized into 20 colleges and 22 schools. It is the fourth largest employer in Arizona with a financial impact on the state of more than $1.1 billion a year. of land way out east of town, and thus the University could become a reality.

8 The Tradition of Commencement Commencement from the ancient practice of beginning life s work at the end of an apprenticeship has roots eight centuries in the European past. The robes and caps worn by the faculty and graduating students at the University of Arizona follow the style of Oxford University, England. The bachelor s gown, of poplin or a similar cloth, has long, pointed sleeves; the master s gown, also of poplin, has long, closed sleeves with square ends and a slit at the elbow for the arm to come through; the doctor s gown has full, round, open sleeves, is faced with velvet, and has three velvet stripes on the sleeves. The sobriety of the blue or black gowns is relieved by the bright spectrum of colors of hood and tassel indicating the wearer s field of study. At the University of Arizona, candidates for the bachelor s degree do not wear hoods, but the colors of their tassels indicate the fields in which they are receiving degrees. The candidates for advanced degrees wear hoods lined with silk in the official red and blue colors of the University. The velvet edging of the hood bears the color of the candidate s major field. The official color for the Doctor of Philosophy degree is dark blue, regardless of the major field of study. Tassel colors used by advanced degree candidates are: master s, black; doctoral, old gold. The official degree colors established by the Intercollegiate Code in 1895 are used to represent the following major fields of learning at the University of Arizona: Agriculture & Life Sciences Maize Architecture Blue-Violet Business & Public Administration Drab (Light Tan) Education Light Blue Engineering Orange Family & Consumer Sciences Maroon Fine Arts Dark Brown Health Professions Green Humanities White Law Purple Letters, Arts & Science Silver Medicine Green Music Pink Nursing Apricot Optical Sciences Orange Pharmacy Olive Green Public Health Salmon Sciences Gold Social & Behavioral Sciences White At the moment the degree is conferred, the new bachelors move the tassels from right to left to signify their changed academic status. The academic procession is composed of the officers of administration, members of the Arizona Board of Regents, deans of colleges, faculty members, doctoral candidates, honorary degree recipients, other award recipients and candidates for master s and bachelor s degrees.

9 The University of Arizona Ceremonial Mace The ceremonial or academic mace of the University of Arizona reflects the unique character, mission and values of this institution. At Commencement, it is carried by the Chair of the Faculty and signifies the order and authority of the academic procession. The placing of the mace in its stand marks the beginning of the ceremony. Its removal signifies the end of the platform ceremony. In medieval times, maces were used in combat. In time, bodyguards carried maces to protect royalty. By the 16th century, maces took on the elegance of silver, gold and precious stones, and were incorporated into academic and civil ceremonies. The symbol of authority for the city of London, for example, is the mace of the Lord Mayor. The University of Arizona mace features a crown of sterling silver surrounding the seal of the University, which is accented with 22K gold. Underlying the crown are 24 acrylic strips in the school colors of red and blue, which add a jewel-like sparkle. The main shaft is made of local mesquite with a sterling silver band inscribed with The University of Arizona, accented with 22K gold. The tailpiece repeats the motif of the crown and surrounds a medallion with an image of a wildcat, the school mascot. We thank the University of Arizona Foundation, the College of Fine Arts and Professor Michael Croft for adding the gift of this mace to our Commencement traditions. 6 THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA COMMENCEMENT 2017

After confirmation by the U.S. Senate, Bolden began his post in 2009 and retired in January A visionary who has advanced efforts toward human settlements in space, Bolden led NASA in developing the Space Launch System rocket slated to become the most powerful rocket NASA has ever built and the agency s Orion spacecraft, which will carry astronauts to deep space destinations, such as asteroids and Mars. Bolden s connections to the UA are longstanding given the University s relationship with NASA and significant contributions to advancements in planetary sciences. One of the last space launches Bolden attended as NASA s administrator was in September 2016 for the agency s UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission, which successfully launched a spacecraft toward the asteroid Bennu as part of a sample return operation. While at NASA, Bolden led the agency s major transition from decades of space shuttle missions to a significant focus on expanded development of space and aeronautics technology and full utilization of the International Space Station. The agency s activities under Bolden included an unprecedented landing on Mars with the Curiosity rover, launch of a spacecraft to Jupiter and enhancement of the nation s fleet of Earth-observing satellites. NASA also has seen continued progress toward the 2018 launch of the James Webb Space Telescope successor to the Hubble Space Telescope which was assembled with UA knowledge and technology, such as the Near Infrared Camera. Also under Bolden s leadership, NASA s support of commercial space transportation systems for reaching low-earth orbit enabled commercial cargo resupply of the space station and has furthered efforts to allow U.S. companies to launch astronauts. Bolden also has supported NASA s contributions toward developing cleaner, faster and quieter airplanes. Prior to his nomination to serve as NASA administrator, Bolden was chief executive officer of Jack and Panther LLC, a business enterprise providing leadership, military and aerospace consulting.

ALBERT ALAN NUGENT AWARD Albert Alan graduates this spring with a Bachelor of Health Science in physiology, a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience and cognitive science, and a Bachelor of Arts in sociology. Yet, as an undergraduate, Albert spent three years living on the street and suffering from illnesses that were exacerbated by his lack of health insurance. As a transient student with few resources, Albert started a pro-bono tutoring service that helped over 500 underserved STEM students just like him to learn challenging concepts and study skills. Today, Albert serves Tucson s underserved populations in two critical ways: he volunteers each week to deliver 2,250 pounds of fresh produce to homeless shelters under the mission POWWOW, to date raising over $50,000 to support and expand this vital food distribution program, and spends quality time at shelters educating people about diabetes and other chronic diseases that often go untreated in the homeless. Albert s compassion for the underserved is matched only by his passion for medicine. In 2014, he joined the Minority Health Disparity Research program at the UA, where he assisted Dr. Kirsten Limesand in researching the effects of radiation on the polarity of salivary glands in mice, and is currently working in Dr. Dawn Coletta s lab studying the molecular basis, genetics and epigenetics of insulin resistance.

Jessie has been awarded Eller College of Management's Outstanding Collegiate Scholar of the Year, Outstanding Finance Senior, was named as one of Eller s Top 50 Women of the Year and was chosen as Homecoming Queen. Jessie spent her sophomore year interning with the Arizona Athletics department and Mesa Airlines in its financial planning division. She was accepted to the Wall Street Scholars Program and received admission to a Wall Street development class taught by a former Wall Street trader. This experience ignited her passion for macroeconomics and financial markets. The following summer, Jessie was one of 10 women accepted, from a pool of over 500 applicants, to the UBS Sophomore Women s Wall Street Program in New York City. With her growing passion for Wall Street, Jessie has become involved in extracurricular finance activities. She currently serves as director of capital markets track in the Wall Street Scholars Program, mentoring students who are pursuing careers on Wall Street. In addition, she is President of the Investments Club, where she leads over 80 students, focusing on financial market discussions. To introduce more females to the field of finance, she has co-hosted two Women in Finance brunches, which exposes freshman and sophomore women to various careers within finance, and offers mentorships to upper-division students. Jessie is currently co-founding a Women in Finance Speaker Series aimed at helping students better understand the day-to-day responsibilities associated with various finance careers, while highlighting successful women in finance. This past summer Jessie interned at UBS in its sales and trading division. Following graduation, she will be working for UBS in New York on its foreign exchange sales and trading desk.

Serving as director of recruitment for AZMUN, Jacob trained over 600 high school students from Arizona and Sonora, Mexico, for the annual Arizona Model United Nations conference. Jacob s interest in civic engagement also led him to work as an opinion columnist for the Daily Wildcat, and teach English in Mexico through the UA s Vivir Mexico program. Jacob is currently a finalist for a Fulbright Scholarship in Mexico. Jacob believes strongly that higher education institutions must work to combat systemic, intersectional oppression. As a student director for Pride Alliance with LGBTQ+ Affairs, Jacob coordinates over 60 events each year, manages a team of student interns, lobbies for policy changes within the University, and oversees partnerships with dozens of campus and community organizations. Additionally, Jacob has facilitated LGBTQ competency workshops as part of the SafeZone program for classes, student clubs and Greek Life organizations. During his time as director, Pride Alliance was chosen as the ASUA Program of the Year. In the community, Jacob works as a Hebrew teacher at Or-Chadash Congregation and coaches basketball in the ASUA basketball league for Tucson youth. After graduation, Jacob is moving to Washington, D.C., to work for a pro bono legal organization that advocates for the rights of capital defendants. THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA COMMENCEMENT

19 Graduation with Honors The University of Arizona Honors College offers admission to a highly selective group of academically distinguished students. Students who graduate with honors are awarded a gold medallion to wear at the Commencement ceremony. Graduation with Honors signifies that students have satisfied 18 to 30 hours of honors academic work, earned a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or greater, and completed a senior honors thesis, design project or capstone experience. The honors academic experience is more exploratory, experimental and open-ended than the usual classroom experiences. Honors academic work enables students to engage the material in more depth, to actively participate in scholarly and creative processes, and to personalize their learning through imaginative, critical and applied experiences. Special opportunities provided to honors students include: unique classes, independent study projects, small group discussions, topic-centered colloquia, informal interaction between faculty and students outside the classroom, funding for undergraduate research, one-on-one preparation for graduate and professional school, and advising for students interested in nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. Graduates of the University of Arizona Honors College are highly successful. The majority of students graduating with honors go on to professional or graduate schools; the rest immediately enter the workforce in such fields as architecture, engineering and teaching.

32 James Fred Pop McKale came to Tucson in 1911 to accept a job at Tucson High School. His state championship baseball teams were known for their victories embarrassing the college teams at the UA and Tempe Normal. A student petition was presented to University President A.H. Wilde, asking him to hire McKale as athletic director and coach of all UA sports. Although he was opposed to the hiring, Wilde announced McKale s appointment on June 2, 1914, at a salary of $1,700 per year. Wilde s successor, Rufus B. von KleinSmid, was not much more enthused with the benefits of collegiate athletics, and records for 1915 show that McKale s total appropriation to run his program amounted to $835!

36 Unfortunately, it is unlikely that interior photographs of Old Main were taken when school began in It is known that besides classrooms, laboratories and offices, there were some temporary sleeping quarters for faculty and male students, a kitchen and mess hall, space for a territorial weather bureau, and a photographic darkroom. The University was proud of its equipment, both for teaching and research, and took pains to buy from the best suppliers. Amy Kelly ANIMAL SCIENCES Sean W.

39 The year was 1885 and the mood was mean. The cities and counties needed money and the Territorial Legislature controlled the purse strings. To make matters worse, the members of the 13th Territorial Legislature were known to make decisions for often less than ethical reasons. They had earned the nickname The Thieving Thirteenth. There were two major prizes to be won from the Legislature that year. Phoenix and Prescott came out on top. Phoenix was given the asylum for the insane and Prescott kept the state capital. Tucson received an unwelcome consolation prize of the University of Arizona, and with it, a measly $25,000 appropriation, just one quarter of the amount Phoenix received to build the insane asylum.

40 One condition the Legislature slapped on Tucson was that the people of Pima County had to donate 40 acres to the University. The response was less than overwhelming. No one offered an inch. One man decided the time had come to take matters into his own hands. Jacob S. Mansfeld was a member of the new Board of Regents. He took a walk into the desert about a mile east of town and picked out a site for the new university. The land was owned by two professional gamblers, E.B. Gifford and Ben C. Parker, and saloon keeper W.S. Billy Read. They weren t all that sure their land was the perfect spot for the new University of Arizona. Finally, on Nov. 27, 1886, the owners agreed and the deed was filed. A year later, on Oct. 27, 1887, ground was broken for the building that was to be known as Old Main.

46 In October 1926, John F. Button Salmon, one of the most popular players on the football team and president of the student body, was critically injured in an automobile accident on the Phoenix highway. Shortly before his death on Oct. 18, 1926, Athletic Director J.F. McKale visited him, and asked if he had any message for the team. Whether truth or legend, Button is reported to have said, Tell them tell them to bear down. A year later, in December 1927, the men s junior honorary organization, Chain Gang, sponsored a fundraising dance to paint Bear Down on the roof of the gymnasium.

51 The original wildcat mascot arrived on campus Oct. 17, 1915, and was introduced to the student body the following day at an assembly in Herring Hall. He was the gift of the freshman football team, which had raised the funds ($9.91) to purchase him. He was officially named Rufus Arizona, after UA President Rufus B. von KleinSmid. On April 17, 1916, Rufus died. The Arizona Wildcat reported that: While endeavoring to perform gymnastic stunts in the limbs of a tree to which he was tied, Rufus Arizona... fell and was hung. Note: Never tie a feline to a tree. Rufus was memorialized in verse and a Wildcat editorial, which noted that his growls urged our team to victory and spoke of his strength, alertness, tenacity the true Arizona spirit. Rufus had several successors in later years.

54 Situated at the west entrance of Old Main, the Memorial Fountain, honoring those UA students who lost their lives in World War I, was the gift of Alexander Berger, an uncle of Alexander Tindolph Berger, one of those to whose memory it is dedicated. On Jan. 31, 1920, the Memorial Fountain in front of Old Main was dedicated amid a huge turnout of students, faculty, townspeople and military, who had come to honor the University s World War I dead and to greet the guest of honor, Gen. John J. Pershing. General Pershing s speech was brief and impressive, following which the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred upon him by UA President von KleinSmid.

58 It was a sensational 7-6 Arizona football victory over Pomona College on Nov. 6, 1914, that led to the building of the A on Sentinel Peak, west of Tucson. In what was doubtless a burst of enthusiastic pride for his alma mater, Albert H. Condron, a member of the 1914 team and a civil engineering student, suggested to one of his professors that a class assignment be made to survey Sentinel Peak for the location of an A." The site was cleared of shrubbery and cactus, trenches dug to outline the letter s foundations, rock at hand was mixed with mortar, and water was hauled up the mountain by six-horse teams. The total cost of materials, equipment and transportation was $397. The back-breaking work was done by the students themselves, Saturday after Saturday, with many difficulties and discouragements, but the A was finally whitewashed on March 4, No one called it Sentinel Peak anymore. It was known thereafter as A Mountain. The A is 70 feet wide and 160 feet long (or tall). The basalt rock quarried from the construction site was used to build the rock wall surrounding most of the University s historic district.

60 One of the most photographed and remembered events of President Babcock s tenure was the famous St. Patrick s Day Strike. A petition addressed to him requesting a full holiday was turned down by the president, who wrote across it in green ink: I may be green but not so green as this. In impulsive defiance the male students, most of them wearing their cadet uniforms, marched downtown and simply took the holiday that had been denied. The story was carried in the newspapers throughout the territory, enraging many, including Governor Brodie. The ringleaders were promptly disciplined with extra drills, and some even put to work laying bricks.

73 During the 1920s and 30s the sport that first brought the University of Arizona national recognition was polo. The sport was established in 1922 with horses and a coach provided by the military, and with athletes from the school s ROTC unit. The first teams were the target of snide remarks from football and basketball team members, but the detractors soon had to eat their words. The 1924 squad captured the Western Collegiate Championship and traveled to the East Coast, where it presented President Calvin Coolidge with a cowboy hat. The team met Princeton for the intercollegiate title, losing 62 and 80.

75 Since 1938, when it was declared unsafe, Old Main had stood unused and locked up. One could only walk around the lower area under the verandas. There were various proposals and arguments for its demolition but Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds Billy Bray after making a survey said it would cost more to tear it down than to let it stand. It was, in the end, the U.S. Navy that kept Old Main from sinking. In September 1942, the Navy awarded a contract for the repair and rehabilitation of the UA s most treasured building for use of the wartime Naval Indoctrination School. The entire structure was refurbished at a cost of $89,000.

80 The UA s first school colors were sage green and silver sage in reference to the indigenous sagebush and silver symbolizing the state s mining industries. In 1898, an editorial in the school newspaper declared, We think those colors well chosen, as they show originality and individuality. The November 1900 issue ran an editorial suggesting that the combination of sage green and silver had outgrown its usefulness. The writer asserts that school colors should produce a decorative college pin, flag or varsity sweater and the sage and silver failed to do so. The December issue that year reported that a committee had been selected to review school colors and ultimately the students almost unanimously adopted cardinal red and navy blue as the new school colors.

82 The UA hired J.F. Pop McKale in 1914 as Athletic Director and coach of all UA sports and his first football team made history. At a game against Occidental, an LA Times reporter wrote, The Arizona men showed the fight of wildcats. The name stuck. In 1915 UA students met the University s first mascot a real desert bobcat, named Rufus Arizona after the UA president Rufus von KleinSmid. The practice of using a live animal as a mascot was discontinued in the mid-1960s. The first costumed-student mascot, Wilbur appeared during the 1959 football season and was an instant hit.

88 One day in 1952 Jack K. Lee, an applicant for the UA s band directorship, was leaving Tucson by air following an interview with University administration. From his airplane window, Lee observed the huge letters on the roof of the UA gymnasium. Inspired, he began to scribble down the music and lyrics to an up-tempo song. By the time his plane landed, he had virtually finished it. A few weeks later Lee was named the University s band director, and in September of that year, the UA band performed Bear Down, Arizona! in public for the first time. Soon thereafter, Bear Down, Arizona! became accepted as the UA s fight song.

90 In 1914, Coach Pop McKale s football team was so successful that discussions began to honor the team and the University by building a huge A on Sentinel Peak, west of downtown Tucson. Working Saturdays from November to March in 1916, students completed the 70 by 160 A of rock, cemented with mortar mixed on-site and whitewashed it that day. This began an annual tradition. Each fall, the freshman class re-paints the A on what is now known as A Mountain. Humberto Montero Jr. Rebekah Lyn Mumma Lana Theresa O Leary Zamarit Ortiz Jonatan De Jesus Othon Teresa J.

91 The first band at the University of Arizona was formed as a military unit in 1902 with 12 musicians. Since 1913 (a year after Arizona became a state) the UA has never been without a band. In 1951, women were allowed to join the marching band. In 1967, the UA band provided halftime entertainment for the inaugural Super Bowl. In 1977, the band performed in President Carter s inaugural parade. In 2009, the Pride of Arizona Marching Band was named one of the top five in the country by the College Band Directors National Association. It now numbers more than 250 members, including a battery-unit drum line, award-winning baton twirlers, pompom dancers and color guard.

94 Just as the bell from the U.S.S. Arizona was about to be melted down and used for bullets, UA alum Bill Bowers retrieved it from a salvage yard and had it hung from the clock tower in the Student Union Memorial Center where it remains today. When the University of Arizona opened its doors in 1891, there were only two colleges (Agriculture and Mines), six faculty and 32 students. Students could get demerits for running on the verandas of Old Main. Jarrah Abdulaziz Albassam Farah Ahmed Alghurab Faisal Matooq Alhussain Abdullah Nasser A.
