A couple of former Wildcats make a sizable contribution to the new building on campus

Arizona v Arizona State

As the new C.A.T.S Academic Center continues to grow where the third base stands of Sancet Stadium once stood, former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles and his wife and former U of A volleyball player Tori, committed $250k to the project to assist with the construction. "The University of Arizona and the athletics department mean so much to Tori and I," Nick said in a statement. "We had such a tremendous experience and our time there prepared us well for the future. We decided this project was the perfect opportunity to show our appreciation. We know this will have a positive impact on all the current and future Wildcats and we’re happy to join forces with everyone who is supporting the new academics center."
