This semester the University of La Verne’s residence halls have experienced a series of attempted robberies, harassment and unwanted visitors, that has shaken many of the students who live on campus.
During one of our weekly editorial board meetings, we were discussing what we would like to put into our “New Governor Wish List.” All of the editors present, excluding me, said to ask our new Gov. Jerry Brown to support gay marriage.
Although there was nothing close to it on the Nov. 2 ballot, gay marriage is still an issue that must be dealt with. And by that I mean it should be legalized. The fact of the matter is there is no real argument against legalizing gay marriage.
We are offering newly-elected Gov. Jerry Brown our short wish-list to help him order his priorities.
In the Nov. 5 issue of the Campus Times, the editors recommended a minimum SAT score higher than the 850 combined score apparently proposed by the College of Arts and Sciences (“SAT minimum should be raised”). If the proposal is to not accept applications from students with a score below 850, we think such a policy would be ill-advised.
The stars of Fox’s hit show “Glee” recently did a photo spread for GQ magazine, in what could be said to be a risque manner.
The University of La Verne’s College of Arts and Sciences has recently recommended that the University create a minimum SAT requirement.
As of July, I finally entered the 21st century of technology; I got my first cell phone. Yes, be shocked. I constantly heard throughout high school and my freshman year of college comments of astonishment whenever I would say I did not have a cell phone.
If any University of La Verne student or faculty goes to Barbara’s Place or Davenport Dining Hall, they are presented with many hot food options. But if anyone was searching for a healthy option as to not gain the “freshman 15” or because they were on a diet, they would be out of luck.
There is a problem with the food we consume. A large percentage of it is imported; a lot of our food comes from foreign countries, especially China and various South American countries. It may be cheaper for big companies to produce food on foreign soil, but at what cost to consumers?
