Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I find it necessary to express my extreme displeasure with the La Verne’s current policy that requires the University be in session on Veteran’s Day. The fact that you hold a parade and other festivities is irrelevant; I find it hypocritical at best and at worst, insulting. The entire country recognizes Veteran’s Day to honor those individuals who have put their lives in harm’s...

Bylaw changes undermine faculty

“Secrecy breeds suspicion,” a phrase used while discussing the release of the Board of Trustee’s bylaws this fall. The bylaws allow the University’s president to veto faculty decisions with minimal time for them to gather and vote to overturn his or her decision. While faculty are working with the Board to revise this component of the Bylaws, the lack of transparency about the bylaws and the... 

Some performances too vile to be art

There is no justification for using racism, sexism or other offensive language, symbols and behavior in music, comedy or other “art” – for the sake of getting people talking. (We’re looking at you, Nicki Minaj.) For her newest single, “Only,” Minaj settles for a cartoon music video and embellishes the Young Money logo to eerily parallel swastikas and places them on flags, billboards and... 

Cosby allegations no revelation

Sexual assault accusations against Bill Cosby have suddenly come to the forefront of public discussion. However, the allegations against him are nothing new. In the past several years, five women have come forward publicly to share their stories of how Bill Cosby raped or molested them, while another six victims have accused the beloved comic anonymously. According to The Atlantic, all the way back... 

Parking is city’s priority

The University’s recent Master Plan has come under much scrutiny, deservedly so. It is a plan that will rely heavily on essential resources and should not be taken lightly. But critics of the plan should realize that the idea of a new five to six story parking structure is not an example of the University going astray, but the city prioritizing parking over the University’s academic plans — a... 

Let’s have a day to honor vets

The University has been named the best institution for veterans in California by U.S. News and World Report, due in part to the University’s participation with federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty personnel apply, pay for and pursue a degree. That we are the only California university to be on the U.S. News and World Report’s 2015 Best Colleges for Veterans list is proudly displayed... 

TheDream.US: a milestone for LV

With many students, especially undocumented students, struggling to pay tuition, the University recently partnered with TheDream.US, a national scholarship fund that assists immigrant students with financial aid. The organization’s vision is to give students opportunities to obtain college educations and contribute to the country. TheDream.US calls itself the “Pell Grant” for immigrant students... 

Not voting is not cool

Not voting is not cool
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Election season is over, but that doesn’t mean we should stop caring about elections. This year’s midterm election turnout was the lowest it has ever been in 72 years, with only 36.4 percent of eligible voters voting. The last time a voter turnout was that low was in 1942, when Hitler was still in power and the United States was in the midst... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I disagree that voter ID laws are discriminatory (“Voter ID law is discrimination,” Oct. 31) You cite figures of only two cases of voter fraud . I would like to see your sources on that. I can name two right off the top of my head: Wendy Rosen from Maryland and Al Franken from Minnesota. While running for office in her home state of Maryland, Ms. Rosen not only voted for herself but...
