Fliers contradict University values

When walking through the University of La Verne students can find dozens of fliers and posters displayed everywhere, publicizing events both on and off campus. There are 15 bulletin boards spread out across campus plus 27 bulletin boards throughout the residence halls on which both the Office of Student Housing and Residential Education and the Office of Student Life approve these fliers for display. The... 

Commentary: My car stereo is loud- I’m sorry

<i>Commentary</i>: My car stereo is loud- I'm sorry
Brian Velez, LV Life Editor I listen to music loud on my headphones and listen to it even louder while driving past the University of La Verne campus with my windows down. I know it’s annoying. I’m sorry. I routinely turn the car stereo volume up on my way to school and on my way home. On any given morning I will drive to school and have the music so loud that if a fire truck was approaching,... 

Video tests free speech

While some Muslims around the world violently protest against “Innocence of Muslims” – a 14-minute video posted on YouTube that goes out of its way to offend Muslims and the prophet Muhammad – the question of censorship arises. Despite calls from some around the world for YouTube to remove the inflammatory video, doing so would create a troubling precedent for the role of free speech... 

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...
