Sporting events have become more than a social event; they have actually become competitive, and our fans more... 

Stop trashing the parking lots

Stop trashing the parking lots
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff During the day, all anyone will see in the parking lot is the blank, black pavement as they circle the lot hunting for a spot, little does the driver know that the vehicles are hiding a dirty little secret.

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: College life: Nothing compares

<i>Commentary</i>: College life: Nothing compares
Brian Velez, LV Life Editor I cherish every moment in college, every joke, every peer homework complaint is cataloged. I have seen the future, a nine to five job. I am a student who will graduate at an age older than most of my peers. While I attended college and worked both part-time and full-time jobs, I have reached an epiphany; I may never find a job that is as fun as being a college student. College... 

Let’s keep Rock tradition

Clubs, sororities, fraternities: every one of these groups participates painting the Rock, nestled in front of Founders Hall. Each are given an opportunity to not only use this Rock to show their creativity but it also stands out as a billboard, advertising numerous events that happen within the University. Sometimes these groups just paint the Rock to paint something unique that represents who they...

Commentary: Buy school books, not Louis Vuitton bags

<i>Commentary</i>: Buy school books, not Louis Vuitton bags
Brian Velez, Staff Writer I know, ladies, life is hard owning a $1,000 Louis Vuitton bag and being forced to buy $150 of text books every semester. Being a college student can be expensive and it is irrational to purchase expensive items that leave no money for real necessities, like books and tuition. Every once in a while I hear a student on campus share their economic struggles with a friend. “Oh...

People who suffer from depression are commonly aged 25-years-old to 44-years-old. Symptoms include fatigue, loss of energy, and crying without reason. Hormones, inherited traits, life events and early childhood trauma are believed... 

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.
