Students, look before you cross

Cars stop at the intersection of D and Second streets, students walk through the crosswalk, more students walk, and it never stops. A proper intersection has a traffic light, where people and cars take turns yielding the right of way. D and Second Street is not a proper intersection. Although no intersection accidents have been reported people should make an effort to maintain a safe crosswalk. Although... 

Commentary: I don’t want your CD

<i>Commentary</i>: I don't want your CD
Brian Velez, LV Life Editor This summer I did something I had not done in a long time: I was a tour guide for my foreign relatives during their visit to Los Angeles. I drove them to the Ontario Mills mall, Hollywood and Highland, Venice beach and the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. While my relatives shopped, ate cheeseburgers and shopped some more, I noticed a group of musicians who still... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I would like to commend writer Robert Penalber for highlighting the important Migrant Education Summer Institute in your first publication of the year (“Migrant students succeed with Migrant Education Summer Institute,” Sept. 7). The Institute should be showcased for its efforts to make education as accessible as possible for all students. The hard work of Dr. Adonay Montes and his... 

ULV’s mission: Protect the Seal

From the youngest campus in the United States to the oldest of Universities, there are traditions and superstitions that connect the generations of students that can claim an alma mater. Whether it is patting the statue of David’s butt at Cal State Fullerton for luck or the carefully covered statue of the Bruins at UCLA, these weird quirks are understood by students as part of their history.

Transgenders deserve same acceptance

On May 9 the lead singer of Against Me!, Tom Gabel, has announced that he is beginning the transition from male to female.

Gabel has gender dysmorphia – a condition in which people feel they have been trapped in the wrong gender. When he came out...

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kudos to President Obama for voicing his approval of gay marriage. It was a courageous act, considering the incredible bigotry and hatred that some people are directing at our LGBT brethren. I hear people use Biblical quotations to justify their positions against gays/lesbians, and it reminds me of the 1960s, when I was a Civil Rights Worker trying to change our treatment of Black people... 

Commentary: Professors are people too

<i>Commentary</i>: Professors are people too
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief College is the start of every student’s professional career. Here we are able to expand our minds with lectures about our field of interest and discussions in the classroom. The “no-no” topics are suddenly a learning experience where students can share their opinion and hear feedback rather than a personal attack from a stranger waving a picket sign in...

The syllabus states that pagan faiths will be taught alongside Christianity,...
