Too easy to eat free at Davenport

Whenever the University of La Verne offers free food students swoop on it like a flock of seagulls. However, students may not have to anymore once they learn that they can eat for free all the time at Davenport Dining Hall. All you have to do is have a friend open the back gate in the patio and you are in. This year more than ever, students and even non-students are sneaking into Davenport and avoiding... 

LV apparel should be sold at games

LV apparel should be sold at games
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Throughout the years, the University’s school spirit has increased tremendously, especially with the increase in students, the newly renovated Ortmayer Stadium and a multimillion dollar Campus West in the works that will be home to baseball and softball. Sporting events have become more than a social event; they have actually become competitive, and our fans more... 

Pink ribbons gone wild

It is October and the color pink finds itself in almost every item in support for breast cancer awareness month, from wearing pink ribbons, to participating in walks. Unfortunately, breast cancer awareness month has become more than a month to educate women or donate to research – it has become a money making machine for organizations, and for any person to disrespect women. Organizations like Keep... 

Teams should stop racist names

With our world becoming increasingly progressive, the sports realm is starting to finally get a dose of political correctness, and rightfully so. Recently, the Washington Redskins, D.C.’s NFL team, for those not athletically knowledgeable, has come under a lot of controversy for their admittedly racist name. Although the name has been criticized for a long time, President Obama’s recent remarks... 

Tradition hits rock bottom

Tradition hits rock bottom
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff There is something different about the lawn in front of Founders Hall; it is not like the rest of the grass on campus, it is dead. If the dead grass was not a big enough eyesore there is also an abnormal sized rock on the grass that sits on top of a slab of concrete. The dead grass has nothing to do with maintenance, but it has everything to do with the Rock and... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I just wanted to thank the Campus Times, especially Christian Orozco, for the article last Friday (“Kennan fights for justice,” Oct. 11). I only hope that some people will read it and become involved in one or more of the many causes we need to fight for right now: Veteran’s benefits, LGBT rights, women’s rights, voting rights, raising the minimum wage, supporting organizations... 

Shutdown ends, problems persist

After 16 days, the government shutdown has finally ended with Congress giving final approval to a budget compromise. Yet it seems that just as effects were beginning to trickle down, citizens were barely starting to take notice. The issue is one that all citizens need to pay attention to, not just government employees and politicians. Talks to craft a deal that would end the government shutdown came... 

Revenge porn bill is limp

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a new bill into law on Oct. 1 that would criminalize “revenge porn” – the distribution of online sexual images of an ex-lover or spouse to harass and humiliate them. Although this is a good step in protecting victims of revenge porn, the law doesn’t go far enough. SB 255 states that those caught distributing revenge porn can face up to six months in jail or a $1,000... 

Commentary: Fantasy football sacks productivity

<i>Commentary</i>: Fantasy football sacks productivity
Julian Mininsohn, Sports Editor Fantasy football is not simply a hobby anymore. It is a sports in itself. It is a lifestyle. It is an obsession. People spend countless hours preparing for their league drafts, studying which players to add to their team, and managing their teams throughout the NFL season. All of it is to gain a competitive edge, and in some cases to win money. The problem is not how... 

Shuttle lot should be a choice

Vista residents are awaiting the dreaded email to let them know what day they have to begin parking in the off-campus shuttle lot, anticipated for some time this month after all of the renovations are done to that lot, thus beginning another chapter in the ULV parking rigmarole Before the off-campus shuttle lot existed, students were in an uproar over parking and it did not help that the University...
