This little piggy has a problem

Recently many faculty members and students arrived to their offices, mailboxes and dorm rooms to discovered clear, plastic piggy banks with a note inside. The note explained the pig was from the University of La Verne Advancement department’s new Spotted Pig Campaign.

LV should pick up the Work-Study slack

Far fewer students receive Federal Work- Study and less are able to work in the various departments that hire student workers. We believe ULV should fund the former Work-Study jobs, so students have better chance at affording their four-year education.

The recent ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research is one that should have never been put in place.

Reality TV needs reality check

When reality television shows began in the 1940s with Allen Funt’s “Candid Camera,” the standard was to entertain the public with unscripted, humorous situations.
