Parking structure levels academics

A multi-million dollar investment will soon become a reality this fall on the University of La Verne campus — an investment that supporters say will present a concrete solution to a longtime problem that faces not only our institution but the city of La Verne as well. The thing is, the solution is literally concrete. A five-level parking structure is set to break ground this October. This parking... 

It’s about time for #WomenOn20s

It’s about time for #WomenOn20s
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Harriet Tubman’s face could soon replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill thanks to a nonprofit, grassroots campaign that went viral, striking up a dialogue about the abolitionist’s legacy among young people. The “Women on 20s” movement continues to gain momentum, and it is becoming clear that Tubman deserves the honor, especially compared... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, In response to the May 14 Faculty Assembly resolution that affirmed a Faculty Hiring Plan that endorses race-based hiring, I would like to express my reassurance that this resolution is non-binding and that it is not and will not be University policy. I respect that Human Resources will guard against any such plans becoming University policy. In its current iteration, I find the hiring... 

Abstinence-only education ineffective

Abstinence-only education ineffective
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo A chlamydia outbreak at a Texas high school has raised concerns about whether abstinence-only sex education programs are actually effective in preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases among teenagers.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I’m writing to let you know what I think about the layout of the front page of the May 1 Campus Times. It is of poor taste and quite offensive. I thought we had more class than that. I can’t believe that “Applying safe sex principles” merits the front page slot, bigger than “Lieberman named President of the Year.” A picture of Dr. Lieberman next to her article would have been...

Sports rebuild national morale

The effects of police brutality once again cracked front pages across the country last week, when Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency in response to the protests in Baltimore, sparked by the death of Freddie Gray while in Baltimore Police Department custody. In a nationwide display of solidarity, dozens of demonstrations were organized, but the most powerful show of solidarity came... 

Jenner’s courage is admirable

After months of speculation and scrutiny by the public, Bruce Jenner officially came out and announced his intent to transition into a woman last week in an ABC “20/20” interview with Diane Sawyer. In the two-hour interview, the 65-year-old former Olympian and now reality television star talked about his decades-long struggle with gender identity. The interview shed light on the world that an estimated... 

Support our LGBTQ youth

The White House and other organizations, as well as state governments, have condemned the practice of LGBTQ conversion treatments April 8. The proposed law, titled Leelah’s Law, came after Leelah Alcorn, a 17-year-old transgender youth from Ohio, committed suicide after being forced into conversion therapy by her parents. Alcorn wrote a suicide note on her Tumblr blog which explained that her parents... 

Struggles aren’t social experiments

Struggles aren’t social experiments
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Gwyneth Paltrow recently took a food stamp challenge and although she aimed to raise awareness about the $29 weekly food stamp budget, she unintentionally minimized the challenge 47 million Americans face every week. Mario Batali, Paltrow’s friend and Food Bank activist, encouraged Paltrow to abide by the Food Bank’s regulations and write...
