Administrators: hear our cries

The University of La Verne has been filled with the spirit of protest throughout April, when a sit-in protest to the tearing down of Ben Hines Field on April 12 brought students and faculty together for a cause that mattered. Students have also begun to protest the housing department’s decision to make dorms available on a first-come, first served basis. With plans to increase traditional undergraduate... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I couldn’t agree more with the editorial comments opposing the removal of Ben Hines Field for a parking lot (“Field of broken dreams,” April 22). Many family members, players, parents and fans literally carried rocks and other important tasks of that area to make the present field that has existed for more than 40 years. This will make ULV the only SCIAC college without a field on... 

Journalists deserve more credit

When some people think about journalists, they think of primped up people who talk to a camera or go find out which celebrities are pregnant for their job at TMZ. In truth, some journalists risk their lives for important work. Lara Logan, CBS chief foreign correspondent, was sexually assaulted and beaten by a mob during her coverage of the celebration after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down in Egypt....

Commentary: Musical recitals are a good start

<i>Commentary</i>: Musical recitals are a good start
Christina Collins Burton, Arts Editor With four weeks left of school, I am happy to see a generous amount of culture coming to the campus in the form of music. Since the opening of the Ann and Steve Morgan Auditorium, the sound of singing has been echoing throughout Founders Hall. As good as it is that our music is finally able to be heard on campus, where are the rest of our arts? There is a healthy... 

Raising gender neutral is OK

In a recent Los Angeles Times article, president of J. Crew Jenna Lyons received backlash for posing with her 5-year-old son, Beckett, and his freshly painted pink toenails. The ad, meant to be an advertisement for J. Crew’s merchandise, instead caused a debate over how Lyons is raising her son. The problem many had with the ad is the supposed endorsement of transgendered or gender-neutral children.... 

Commentary: Fine facilities are underused

<i>Commentary</i>: Fine facilities are underused
Daniel Hargis, Associate Sports Editor At most colleges and universities, gyms and workout rooms are open for most of the day for the students to use at any time. However, the University of La Verne is not most colleges and universities, as the gym and workout room hours are minimal. Our gym does not have any listed hours to be used for recreational basketball, so if you want to play with friends you... 

Field of broken dreams

Ben Hines Field is slated to be torn down at the end of the baseball season in May to make room for a new parking lot. The University finds it necessary to build the lot to go along with the new dorms that are to be finished by fall 2012. When making plans for the new lot, ULV seems to have forgotten to take into consideration that multiple teams play on the baseball field: men’s and women’s soccer... 

Commentary: Music industry is hitting a sour note

<i>Commentary</i>: Music industry is hitting a sour note
Branden del Rio, News Editor Anybody who knows me personally knows that I take my music very seriously. I keep my collection of almost 2,600 songs on my iPod, which is constantly in my pocket or sitting right in front of me. I also take pride in knowing that of those 2,600 songs I have acquired about 95 percent of them by legal means. I have either bought them on iTunes, bought tangible CDs as soon... 

Budget cuts are hurting environment

Budget cuts are hurting environment
Editorial cartoon by Anthony Juarez The United States Senate approved the 2011 federal budget plan last week, an action that has been long overdue and wrought with problems. However, the approval came with one questionable addition. An order for the Interior Department to lift protections for gray wolves in Montana, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon and Utah was attached to the federal budget plan to ensure... 

Students request new food options

Students request new food options
Editorial cartoon by Anthony Juarez The digestion of all on-campus residents is about to be affected. With midterms almost behind us and only a month left of classes, the University of La Verne has started searching for a new food provider to cook for the masses. Committees have met with four different food providers for a chance to take over Sodexo’s position. Now that there might be a change in...
