Currently, students are upset over the lack of options since Barb’s has eliminated its daily specials. Say goodbye to all of your favorites and embrace the taqueria every day except Wednesdays, which are now strictly for Mongolian food. Although there are more refrigerated options available... 

Hollywood lacks diversity

Viola Davis became the first black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her performance in “How To Get Away With Murder” this past Sunday, but it should not have taken this long for a woman of color to have won this prestigious award. The Emmys premiered in 1949, and in 67 years, only four black women have been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama. “The...

Islamophobia still prevalent

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Many of you may have noticed the reserved parking spaces in our crowded parking lots. For $1,500 a year, employees are able to reserve a personal parking spot of their choice. This is a new policy the University has introduced this fall. At a time when parking is already a huge problem here at La Verne, I wonder if this policy is helping to solve that problem.

United States must help Syrian refugees

Refugees are fleeing Syria’s brutal civil war by the millions, creating one of the world’s biggest refugee crises since World War II.

Recently, President Barack Obama has committed to accepting 10,000 more over...

The first week back to school from an eventful summer break is always one of the hardest things to get through. As we enter the new year at the University of La Verne, the resources needed to accommodate the student body growth were underestimated. The university administration knew how many incoming students were enrolled for the fall semester, yet, it was still underestimated. Many in the University... 

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

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...
