ULV is a dry campus on paper only

Saying that the University of La Verne campus is dry is like parents telling their children that the Easter Bunny exists, yet everyone knows the truth. Alcohol is openly served at some faculty and alumni events on the ULV campus, yet the administration continues to label the campus as dry. This label is inconsistent with the current activities, policies and products available on the ULV campus. Students... 

Website still needs a makeover

With the school cranking out fliers and other propaganda promoting the University, one update that should not be put off is sprucing up the University of La Verne website. Potential students who are considering La Verne visit the website as a reference and it is always the first impression one gets of the school. In this case, the impression would first be a nice and clean website with any information... 

Parking problems were preventable

The parking nightmare we are currently caught up in was inevitable. University administrators saw it, even the students saw it, but nothing substantial was done to prevent it. With the University continously accepting more students than it can accommodate in a city that, shall we say, likes its peace and quiet, the new parking regulations, which prohibit street parking on most streets walking distance... 

Seceding: The action of sore losers

Seceding: The action of sore losers
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff President Obama has not even been sworn in for a second term and already the people of the United States are throwing a temper tantrum. While most people take to the internet to bash and complain, a couple of our fellow “Americans” have taken to the site petitions.whitehouse.gov in an attempt to say “I quit” and secede from the United States. When the website... 

Deity not needed for nation’s leaders

Deity not needed for nation's leaders
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff One of the greatest things about living in a democratic society is that it gives people the freedom to make a difference within their communities, as well as the nation. If one is inclined to become a leader, he or she is able to go for it – to run for office. Candidates for office also get to educate others about why current leadership has fallen short and explain... 

Student safety should come first

The campus safety website reads, “ The University of La Verne prides itself on having a safe and inviting campus that welcomes visitors for an afternoon or students for years of study.” The University’s main campus has 10 people on the campus safety staff, led by interim director of campus safety Jeff Clark and lead officer Laura Avalos, for the entire student body of nearly 7,000 students. There... 

Food service workers, unite

Food service workers, unite
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Some Bon Appétit employees have complained that they feel pressured to work before and after clocking in. It is illegal and unethical to make an employee work for free. If claims made by Bon Appétit employees are true and they wish to organize a vote to form a union, then we support them. The employees are tired and say they have asked management for the right... 

Targeted killings miss the mark

In the past four years, 326 reported U.S. drone strikes have occurred within Pakistan with an estimated 1,707 to 3,025 deaths – more than 400 of them reported to be civilian bystanders. All of this within a country that the United States is not at war with. Under President Barack Obama’s administration, the use of unmanned, combat air vehicles, or drones, armed with missiles and surveillance... 

Let’s keep race out of election politics

Let's keep race out of election politics
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Former governor of New Hampshire and top Romney surrogate John Sununu paid a visit to CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” last week. During the interview with Morgan, Sununu suggested that former secretary of state Colin Powell is supporting President Barack Obama because they are of the same race. Looking at the two candidates in the 2012 election, Barack Obama... 

Death penalty wastes resources

On the ballot for next week’s election is Proposition 34, to repeal the death penalty. Perspectives both for and against the death penalty are controversial and can’t help but involve people’s personal moral and religious views. Though one of the best arguments for repealing the death penalty in California is financial. Voting yes on 34 would mean that no offender in California would be able...
