Time to give Barb’s a chance

Inside the Campus Center during, lunch and dinner hours, students line up curving off to the left of the counter, making the small space seem hectic. But the crowd isn’t from Barbara’s Place crew not caring. Outside of the prepackaged yogurts and sandwiches, Barb’s cooks up a small amount of Mexican-American food, each item Bon Appetit claims is organic and locally grown. It tastes good and the... 

ASULV not providing leadership

ASULV not providing leadership

McDonald’s is showing no beef

McDonald’s is showing no beef
Editorial cartoon by Brian Velez No matter what diet people stick with – either a low carbohydrate meal or chugging three 5-Hour Energy drinks to be awake throughout the night studying – McDonald’s is one restaurant that seems to satisfy everyone.

Students, look before you cross

Cars stop at the intersection of D and Second streets, students walk through the crosswalk, more students walk, and it never stops. A proper intersection has a traffic light, where people and cars take turns yielding the right of way. D and Second Street is not a proper intersection. Although no intersection accidents have been reported people should make an effort to maintain a safe crosswalk. Although... 

ULV’s mission: Protect the Seal

Transgenders deserve same acceptance

On May 9 the lead singer of Against Me!, Tom Gabel, has announced that he is beginning the transition from male to female.

Gabel has gender dysmorphia – a condition in which people feel they have been trapped in the wrong gender. When he came out...

School debt leaves students cold

School debt leaves students cold
Editorial cartoon by Jason D. Cox Republicans in the Senate blocked the Democrats’ bill Tuesday that would prevent the interest rates of the Stafford Loan from doubling July 1. The interest rate that is currently 3.4 percent would double to 6.8 percent, a price that only adds to the thicket of debt students are fighting. Stafford Loans are federal education loans that were borrowed by about 7.4 billion...
