Adjunct union deserves support

University adjunct faculty members have recently filed for unionization with the National Labor Relations Board, looking toward improved pay, job security, access to benefits and more. Currently 60 percent of the classes on the main campus are taught by adjuncts. Students should take this number into consideration and stand behind our adjuncts in unionization. Most adjuncts at the University are paid...

Halloween showcases its worst

Now that the candy coma stomach aches and party-induced hangovers of Halloween have subsided, it is time to look back on the mess that was made. Not the literal one you made in your bathroom on Nov. 1, but the trend of truly disturbing and inappropriate costumes that seemed to hit a horrible peak this year. It’s not news that people like to dress in offensive costumes, but this year, some of the... 

Majority wants to go green

Majority wants to go green
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Marijuana is legal in 18 states for medical use and most recently in 2012 it became legal for recreation in Washington and Colorado, and now it is time for it to become legal on all levels.

KFC special: Disgusting as usual

Body image has always been a big issue when it comes to women in the media. Whether they are models in the spotlight for their appearance – or politicians in the spotlight because of their savvy words and intellect – they can’t seem to escape scrutiny and objectification. Even Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most politically powerfully women in the nation, is still subject to this kind of sexism. And... 

Too easy to eat free at Davenport

Whenever the University of La Verne offers free food students swoop on it like a flock of seagulls. However, students may not have to anymore once they learn that they can eat for free all the time at Davenport Dining Hall. All you have to do is have a friend open the back gate in the patio and you are in. This year more than ever, students and even non-students are sneaking into Davenport and avoiding...

LV apparel should be sold at games
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Throughout the years, the University’s school spirit has increased tremendously, especially with the increase in students, the newly renovated Ortmayer Stadium and a multimillion dollar Campus West in the works that will be home to baseball and softball. Sporting events have become more than a social event; they have actually become competitive, and our fans more... 

Pink ribbons gone wild

It is October and the color pink finds itself in almost every item in support for breast cancer awareness month, from wearing pink ribbons, to participating in walks. Unfortunately, breast cancer awareness month has become more than a month to educate women or donate to research – it has become a money making machine for organizations, and for any person to disrespect women. Organizations like Keep... 

Teams should stop racist names

With our world becoming increasingly progressive, the sports realm is starting to finally get a dose of political correctness, and rightfully so. Recently, the Washington Redskins, D.C.’s NFL team, for those not athletically knowledgeable, has come under a lot of controversy for their admittedly racist name. Although the name has been criticized for a long time, President Obama’s recent remarks... 

Tradition hits rock bottom

Tradition hits rock bottom
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff There is something different about the lawn in front of Founders Hall; it is not like the rest of the grass on campus, it is dead. If the dead grass was not a big enough eyesore there is also an abnormal sized rock on the grass that sits on top of a slab of concrete. The dead grass has nothing to do with maintenance, but it has everything to do with the Rock and...
