ASULV needs presence in campus issues

ASULV needs presence in campus issues
Editorial cartoon by Anthony Juarez While the Associated Students of the University of La Verne represent the student body of the University of La Verne, not many can name exactly what their duties entail. “When faculty, staff and upper administration need feedback on their current or future actions, it is ASULV’s responsibility to speak on behalf of the entire student body,” Executive Vice President... 

Hollywood needs creativity

All of the recent movie remakes that have been plaguing movie theaters leave many questioning if Hollywood has any creativity left. However, with audiences being easy-to-please, there seems to be no way to stop these endless film resurrections. From superheroes to cowboys, movies are being remade at astonishing rates. The popular Spider-Man franchise is one of those films being remade. Director Sam... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Responding to a letter of Nov. 19, I agree with the city of La Verne that a traffic signal at the intersection of C and Bonita is not justified. We admire ULV students and faculty sensible enough to park north of Bonita and walk to the campus, avoiding the annual parking fee. There is ample space to park on city streets. Crossing Bonita at C sometimes requires a short wait until the stream...

<i>Commentary</i>: Going Greek: The tale of a nonbeliever
Lauren Creiman, LV Life Editor As I stood in front of the doors to Campus Center Ballroom A (with two balloons in hand) and listened to the cheers coming from inside, I felt nervous.

Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief Anyone who has an Android or an iPhone can agree they are either addicted to or enjoy downloading applications to help pass the time. These applications, which can be downloaded for free with the occasional advertisement interrupting your play, are a big reason behind the purchase of these types of phones.

Parking should be a priority

With the construction starting on the University of La Verne’s new dorms, students eagerly await the new housing that will be available to them. However, now that the Master Plan is progressing with another parking lot out of commission, the commuters of the University of La Verne have been left to suffer once again. It is true that the construction of the dorms and renovations are much needed to... 

Commentary: Policies need to be enforced

<i>Commentary</i>: Policies need to be enforced
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief Laws, policies and rules are made everywhere to make those involved safe. They are at companies, in countries and even at the University of La Verne. However ULV seems to make some policies just to up their reputation, not to actually abide by them. On the Campus Safety website, it says, “The University of La Verne is a ‘dry’ campus … prohibiting possession...

Politicians need to think before acting

On Feb. 9 Rep. Chris Lee (R-New York) resigned his position in the House of Representatives because he was caught interacting on Craigslist in an unbecoming way. In March of 2008 Eliot Spitzer resigned his position as governor of New York for paying for sex. In 2007 Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana resigned after he was linked to a prostitution ring. All of these politicians had to resign because they...
