Registration equality for all

The semester is coming to an end and along with it comes the beginning of the chaotic class registration process. This semester upper classmen and lower classmen alike are feeling the pains of the overcrowded, over populated, small-classroom-space campus. But not everyone is feeling the pain. Honors students, Associated Students of University of La Verne and Campus Activities Board all got to wake...

Proposed ban affects L.A.’s hungriest
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff ‘Tis the season to be jolly unless you’re a homeless person living in Los Angeles, as two City Council members have proposed a ban on feeding homeless people in public spaces.

Support women: Give us tampons

With the student population in La Verne growing, so is the need for basic necessities. We are given free shirts on a weekly basis but things we really truly need are held back, like tampons. The University should be in tune with the needs of all of their students and with women students making up well over half the total student population, such feminine products in restrooms should be a no-brainer,... 

Be thankful for family, not sales

Be thankful for family, not sales
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Americans continue to prove that we are living in a material world. This year, Thanksgiving dinner for many is going to turn into Thanksgiving lunch as stores have decided to start their Black Friday deals on Thursday.

Non-profits pocket donations

After any natural disaster Americans look to do their part in donating to relief funds. It is amazing how much money can and does get donated to the various relief funds and organizations. But how much of our money donated goes directly to relief? A sad fact is that research is needed before donating. The massive typhoon that hit the Philippines has now accounted for more than 4,000 deaths and has...

Veterans Day celebrated in classroom
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff November 11 marked the day that we, as Americans, honor the ones that have served our country in the U.S. military.

Here at La Verne we celebrated our decorated heroes by having classes. Students who... 

Locker room culture is incognito

Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has received a huge backlash from the racial epithets and profane language in a slur of text messages and a voice mail message left for Miami Dolphin’s tackle Jonathan Martin. Incognito left the message in April 2013, a year after Martin was drafted. “Hey, wassup, you half n***** piece of s***. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s***... 

Adjunct union deserves support

University adjunct faculty members have recently filed for unionization with the National Labor Relations Board, looking toward improved pay, job security, access to benefits and more. Currently 60 percent of the classes on the main campus are taught by adjuncts. Students should take this number into consideration and stand behind our adjuncts in unionization. Most adjuncts at the University are paid...

Halloween showcases its worst

Now that the candy coma stomach aches and party-induced hangovers of Halloween have subsided, it is time to look back on the mess that was made. Not the literal one you made in your bathroom on Nov. 1, but the trend of truly disturbing and inappropriate costumes that seemed to hit a horrible peak this year. It’s not news that people like to dress in offensive costumes, but this year, some of the...
