Letter to The Editor

Dear Editor, In November will be what is – in my mind – the most important election in my lifetime. Many of our civil liberties and freedoms are being debated. This is a call to all students and faculty to educate yourselves about the issues and, above all, vote. In order for us to be a true democracy, the process must be participatory and educated. The fabric of our national ethics and direction... 

Kudos to the College of Law

This month the College of Law was officially recommended for full accreditation by the American Bar Association, with the final word from the ABA expected in March. This marks a huge milestone in the law school’s 18-year, sometimes bumpy, and expensive road to this national accreditation. With ABA accreditation, La Verne law school graduates are able to practice law across the United States. Before... 

A wheelchair is not a fashion prop

A wheelchair is not a fashion prop
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo One day after Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit by Kylie line was launched, Jenner made headlines again, this time for her photo shoot for Interview magazine in which she posed in a gold wheelchair. A wheelchair is not a prop to be used as a fashion statement for a photo shoot. For some people, a wheelchair is their only means of mobility. Many disabled... 

The University takes initiative

With what feels like every day bringing news of another shooting in a constant string of reminders that there is no sign of the senselessness stopping any time soon — and with last week’s San Bernardino shooting feeling a little too close to home, it only makes sense that some kind of precautionary measures be implemented at ULV. Administration has taken the first steps in a positive and safe direction... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, The opinion section of the Dec. 4 issue of the Campus Times included an opinion that the criteria for the Time Magazine Person of the Year “should be stricter.” Currently according to the article the criteria to be on the list is “whoever affected the news …the most throughout the year.” Though I understand and agree that the award should be given for more than “affecting the... 

Domestic terrorism is real threat

Three people were killed and nine were injured in a shooting Friday in the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood, by a man identified as Robert L. Dear. While almost every news outlet covered the tragic event, not many called it what it is: domestic terrorism. According to the United States Patriot Act, domestic terrorism is defined by three characteristics. The first is described as acts dangerous to... 

TIME needs stricter criteria

TIME Magazine has opened its polls so voters can weigh in on this year’s Person of the Year, except some names should not be on the list. Past honorees have included significant figures such as Queen Elizabeth II, Martin Luther King Jr. and Barack Obama. This year’s nominees include honorable names such as activist Malala Yousafzai, Pope Francis and Syrian refugees. However, not every contender... 

Admins must notify students, too

Admins must notify students, too
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff With the end of the semester approaching and registration taking place, chaos is commonplace. However, a registration restriction caused an unusual commotion for upperclass students Nov. 23, the first day of registration. Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Lawrence Potter authorized the registrar’s office to give underclass students priority to register... 

Let’s remember all victims of terror

Let’s remember all victims of terror
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff While the world expressed its solidarity with France after the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, in which 129 people were killed and more than 350 injured, another tragedy that happened just one day before went mostly unnoticed in the West and was overshadowed by the vast media coverage of the Paris attacks. More than 40 people were killed and another 239 were wounded Nov.... 

‘Slacktivism’ is ineffective

In response to the bombings and mass shootings Nov. 13 in Paris, Facebook created a profile picture filter which resembles the France flag to support the country. But how does this filter actually support a terrorized country? Although the filter spreads awareness to people who may not have heard about the tragedy, nothing else happens. Little difference is made. This simply becomes a trend on social...
