ULV is a dry campus on paper only

Saying that the University of La Verne campus is dry is like parents telling their children that the Easter Bunny exists, yet everyone knows the truth. Alcohol is openly served at some faculty and alumni events on the ULV campus, yet the administration continues to label the campus as dry. This label is inconsistent with the current activities, policies and products available on the ULV campus. Students...

Students support tough DUI measure

Amanda Nieto Arts Editor In a recent informal survey, students at the University of La Verne agreed with a law that would make ignition interlock devices mandatory for DUI offenders. Congress showed support for the transportation bill introduced on Jan. 31, which would give additional highway funds to states requiring ignition interlock devices for those convicted of drunken driving.

Housing tightens alcohol, smoking policies

Christina Collins Burton Editorial Director With the start of the new school year, the housing office has updated its policies to make them easier to understand and implement.

Commentary: Policies need to be enforced
