Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a young man I look back to my younger years, growing up playing baseball. I remember dreaming of bigger better stages to compete and display my abilities in the sport. I came from programs that did not have winning traditions, in fact they could be considered among the worst programs over the past 10 years in southern California. What got me here where I am today is my ability to never... 

New dorm’s green credentials questioned

New dorm’s green credentials questioned
Erica Lynn Lares Staff Writer The swanky new dorm scheduled to open in fall 2012 will not be made of newfangled super-sustainable materials. It will by made of wood. Wood Type V, to be exact. This is a fairly typical material for dorms, experts say. Some on campus, however, are less than thrilled about the sense that a wood structure might not be the most environmentally friendly. They are also concerned... 

Sports complex faces rough road: Timing of construction projects puts the squeeze on athletes, MSS program

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... 

Petition drive to save Ben Hines Field continues

Branden del Rio News Editor The campaign to save Ben Hines Field continued Tuesday. This time almost all athletic teams came out to show their support. “What we’re trying to do is the same thing as last time,” said Alan Heide, junior pitcher and the event’s organizer. “We want to keep the events going to show administration that there are other things to do here; that (the field) has a value... 

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...
