Let’s keep Rock tradition

Clubs, sororities, fraternities: every one of these groups participates painting the Rock, nestled in front of Founders Hall. Each are given an opportunity to not only use this Rock to show their creativity but it also stands out as a billboard, advertising numerous events that happen within the University. Sometimes these groups just paint the Rock to paint something unique that represents who they... 

Know what’s in your food

Know what’s in your food
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff People are starting to become more cautious about what they eat. Counting calories, reading nutrition facts and choosing healthier alternatives over a McDouble cheeseburger: they are taking every step to ensure a healthy diet and know what exactly is in the food they consume. The Department of Health makes sure that providers inform their customers about this information,... 

Free parking: Come and get it, ULV

Free parking: Come and get it, ULV
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Every day parking lots are filled to capacity at the University of La Verne. Students complain and park in neighborhoods wherever they can squeeze in without a city of La Verne parking permit. With so many new students at La Verne, parking is hell. Students pay $95 for a parking permit for the whole year but there is never any parking. ULV has given students an...

Hazing is unacceptable

Since the news of hazing at La Puente High School, old wounds have been reopened for locals in Southern California. Last week freshman members of the boy’s soccer team came forward and accused at least 10 of their older teammates of jumping them in the supply closet and beating them. At least one boy was sodomized. The victims said that they wanted to come forward after several months of silence... 

Fliers contradict University values

When walking through the University of La Verne students can find dozens of fliers and posters displayed everywhere, publicizing events both on and off campus. There are 15 bulletin boards spread out across campus plus 27 bulletin boards throughout the residence halls on which both the Office of Student Housing and Residential Education and the Office of Student Life approve these fliers for display. The... 

Video tests free speech

While some Muslims around the world violently protest against “Innocence of Muslims” – a 14-minute video posted on YouTube that goes out of its way to offend Muslims and the prophet Muhammad – the question of censorship arises. Despite calls from some around the world for YouTube to remove the inflammatory video, doing so would create a troubling precedent for the role of free speech... 

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
Editorial cartoon by Brian Velez The University of La Verne currently has more than 2,500 main campus traditional undergraduate students. Seventeen of those undergraduate students have taken it upon themselves to represent the other 2,500 and also choose to thrust themselves into a leadership position at ULV. These students deserve respect for the courage involved in taking on this role. They have... 

Homophobia quickly dissipating

Years ago an individual’s announcement of being gay came with a tidal wave of shock and campaigns questioning the morals of society. Like Ellen DeGeneres’s announcement in 1997 that sparked front-page coverage with Time Magazine. Today an individual is able to get by with less exposure – Anderson Cooper’s announcement in July was merely a trending topic on Twitter for a few hours. This is... 

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. We know it is not the greatest dinner for the family. We know the first bite of a Big Mac makes people regret buying this heart attack in a box, but...
