BYU has right to uphold rules

Division I athletes usually get away with anything and everything, just as long as they continue to dominate on the court or on the field and bring in revenue for their university.

Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-Ga) proposed an anti-abortion bill that would make miscarriages a felony if the mother cannot prove there was no “human involvement.” The legislation excludes those miscarriages that can be proven accidental and due to the woman’s bodily functions.

Parking should be a priority

With the construction starting on the University of La Verne’s new dorms, students eagerly await the new housing that will be available to them. However, now that the Master Plan is progressing with another parking lot out of commission, the commuters of the University of La Verne have been left to suffer once again.
