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... 

Commentary: Views on American Muslims must change

<i>Commentary:</i> Views on American Muslims must change
Erum Jaffrey, Arts Editor The American Muslim condition in the 21st century can be deemed as paradoxical. On one hand, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the United States, but it is also one of the least known about and judged religions in America. With the recent negative onslaught of Muslims in the media, it is safe to say that we have been examined and dissected under the microscope for years,... 

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...

<i>Commentary</i>: Tom Brady deserves his ‘inflated’ punishment
Jolene Nacapuy, Sports Editor The NFL suspended New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for four games after a report was found that he was aware of the deflation of footballs before the AFC Championship game in January. In addition to Brady’s suspension without pay, the Patriots were fined $1 million and lost two draft picks. The Patriots also suspended the two equipment staffers believed to... 

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...

Sustainable efforts reflect values
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Soakfest is a signature event that the Campus Activities Board puts on each spring. Giant blow up water slides and activities are erected on the South Quad, powered by hoses that provide slippery fun for students. Running around across the grass in bathing suits splashing each other with water, students always have a good time at Soakfest. Only... 

Commentary: NFL should crack down on domestic violence

<i>Commentary</i>: NFL should crack down on domestic violence
Julian Mininsohn, Podcast Producer The topic of domestic violence just doesn’t seem to stop coming up in the NFL. After Adrian Peterson’s child abuse incident, Ray Rice’s elevator debacle and Frank Clark’s hotel scene, I was hopeful the violence would subside. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy is the latest member of the NFL domestic violence club. Hardy was...
