Respect the campus. RESPECT IT.

Respect the campus. RESPECT IT.
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief As a freshman at the University of La Verne, I was absolutely terrified and excited for what would happen in my four years here. I was stuck saying “Yes, sir” and “Yes, ma’am” for about a year and a half before I learned that professors are people too. I have not been the wild and crazy type and parties were foreign to me until my sophomore year.... 

Commentary: Loving your curves is making progress

<i>Commentary</i>: Loving your curves is making progress
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief I am a girl with curves and I am proud of that. Three years ago though, I was sporting big bulky black sweaters, oversized shirts and hid behind a forest of hair everyday to become as invisible as possible. I never saw proud curvy women on television, in movies or even on posters. The role models that were thrust into the lime-light were perfectly fit, photoshopped... 

Commentary: No ‘hollerin’ for Honey Boo Boo

<i>Commentary</i>: No 'hollerin' for Honey Boo Boo
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief She’s blonde, considered cute and has way more attitude than any other girls her age. The lime-light is being stolen by 6-year-old Alana Thompson. Better known as “Honey Boo Boo,” Thompson has been gathering popularity since her goofy commentary on “Toddlers in Tiaras.” Now, when I first heard that TLC was deciding to give Thompson her own spin-off... 

Commentary: Professors are people too

<i>Commentary</i>: Professors are people too
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief College is the start of every student’s professional career. Here we are able to expand our minds with lectures about our field of interest and discussions in the classroom. The “no-no” topics are suddenly a learning experience where students can share their opinion and hear feedback rather than a personal attack from a stranger waving a picket sign in... 

Comentary: Being Greek involves more than letters

<i>Comentary</i>: Being Greek involves more than letters
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief As Greeks on the University of La Verne campus, we hold a very special spot as leaders. Due to the size of the campus and how social all of the students are, nothing is sacred. Larger campuses have the luxury of size blotting out gossip among students and keeping problems within the Greek grapevine. This presents a problem as far as our image on campus. In... 

Sexuality is not a bandwagon

Sexuality is not a bandwagon
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief With the amount of vulgarity that families are exposed to on a daily basis in the United States. I can understand that there are entire groups devoted to protecting the family environment. I salute these groups when they find a cause they can get behind that helps families come closer and stops their breaking apart. In the case of the organization One Million... 

Commentary: Empty plots butcher modern horror

<i>Commentary</i>: Empty plots butcher modern horror
Christina Collins Burton, Managing Editor It is Halloween, a time I usually like to celebrate by going to see the latest installment of a horror movie franchise that studios love to beat to death. This year it will be “Paranormal Activity 3,” which I have very little hope for. Last year it was the final “Saw” film, which only confused me and made me very angry with the Jigsaw legacy. I am beginning... 

Commentary: Musical recitals are a good start

<i>Commentary</i>: Musical recitals are a good start
Christina Collins Burton, Arts Editor With four weeks left of school, I am happy to see a generous amount of culture coming to the campus in the form of music. Since the opening of the Ann and Steve Morgan Auditorium, the sound of singing has been echoing throughout Founders Hall. As good as it is that our music is finally able to be heard on campus, where are the rest of our arts? There is a healthy...
