Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read your editorial about ASULV not doing their job as leaders at the university (“ASULV not providing leadership,” Sept. 21). May I say that you are sadly mistaken. Yes, I see that people might first think that ASULV and CAB are similar, but that is not the case. Being part of the Office of Student Life for the last two years, ASULV has provided more than, a free meal and a free... 

Time to give Barb’s a chance

Inside the Campus Center during, lunch and dinner hours, students line up curving off to the left of the counter, making the small space seem hectic. But the crowd isn’t from Barbara’s Place crew not caring. Outside of the prepackaged yogurts and sandwiches, Barb’s cooks up a small amount of Mexican-American food, each item Bon Appetit claims is organic and locally grown. It tastes good and the... 

ASULV not providing leadership

ASULV not providing leadership
Editorial cartoon by Brian Velez The University of La Verne currently has more than 2,500 main campus traditional undergraduate students. Seventeen of those undergraduate students have taken it upon themselves to represent the other 2,500 and also choose to thrust themselves into a leadership position at ULV. These students deserve respect for the courage involved in taking on this role. They have... 

Homophobia quickly dissipating

Years ago an individual’s announcement of being gay came with a tidal wave of shock and campaigns questioning the morals of society. Like Ellen DeGeneres’s announcement in 1997 that sparked front-page coverage with Time Magazine. Today an individual is able to get by with less exposure – Anderson Cooper’s announcement in July was merely a trending topic on Twitter for a few hours. This is... 

Commentary: No ‘hollerin’ for Honey Boo Boo

<i>Commentary</i>: No 'hollerin' for Honey Boo Boo
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief She’s blonde, considered cute and has way more attitude than any other girls her age. The lime-light is being stolen by 6-year-old Alana Thompson. Better known as “Honey Boo Boo,” Thompson has been gathering popularity since her goofy commentary on “Toddlers in Tiaras.” Now, when I first heard that TLC was deciding to give Thompson her own spin-off... 

McDonald’s is showing no beef

McDonald’s is showing no beef
Editorial cartoon by Brian Velez No matter what diet people stick with – either a low carbohydrate meal or chugging three 5-Hour Energy drinks to be awake throughout the night studying – McDonald’s is one restaurant that seems to satisfy everyone. We know it is not the greatest dinner for the family. We know the first bite of a Big Mac makes people regret buying this heart attack in a box, but... 

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. The...
