This is always a trying time with finals, excess work and the tease of a summer vacation nearly within reach.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a very proud grandparent of a student that attends the University of La Verne, I would like to comment how much I truly enjoy all the articles that are written by the students (editors) in your weekly newspaper and look forward to reading it page by page every week. It is exciting and so refreshing to know that this younger generation is truly interested in their community. From the... 

Events make freshmen feel welcome

Alexandria Orozco Staff Writer Starting the first year of college can be exciting and scary. You are not completely sure of what to expect or positive if the dozens of television shows and movies about Greek life paint an accurate picture of the what college life has to offer. The only way to find out the truth is to experience it. “La Verne wasn’t what I expected in the beginning,” freshman... 

ULV students prepare for next week’s finals

Jason D. Cox Staff Writer Finals week can be a stressful time. The exam is often the culmination of everything students have learned in a class. For many students who maintain average grades, a final exam may make or break their overall grade for a class and affect their GPA. “I dread the week before finals because my social life disappears and the stress really builds,” Lawrence Hodges, sophomore... 

Short holiday break keeps La Verne students local

Tennille Wright Staff Writer The campus was quiet with many students gone for the short Thanksgiving break. Because the vacation amounted to only two days off this year, however, many kept their plans local. “I would actually spend a lot more time with my family but we only have a short break,” Matthew Johnson, sophomore biology major, said. Students who live out of state, echoed this sentiment. “If...

Students who are not from the area may not know of places near La Verne that offer some affordable fun. “Fun does not always have...

Marilyn Mejia Staff Writer In college movies whenever the school team hits the field so do thousands of fans in face paint and school-related attire. At the University of La Verne the school spirit is not nearly that high, at least according to several students surveyed recently.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I was, frankly, shocked to read Cherlynn Clark’s comment in “ULV fills Cal Grant gap” (Oct. 1) that “It upsets me that …the state could have delayed my education.” The last time I looked, the United States is what it is because people do not expect the government to support them. Education is a privilege that we earn, not a right. I donate a lot of money to ULV and... 

Commentary: Not like the movies

<i>Commentary</i>: Not like the movies
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief The typical college experience is depicted in movies as the most exciting time of any person’s life full of parties, Greek life and experiencing new things. The depiction is pretty accurate, especially the extreme drug and alcohol use, and the open sex lives. However in my case, I make movies look like liars. I do not drink, I do not use drugs, illegal or legal,...

Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor You are in the store about to purchase your groceries for the week, a mother stands in front of you, her child running in circles screaming out in awkward babble the lyrics to “Party in the U.S.A.” You walk outside and see an elderly lady struggling with her groceries as five strapping boys pass by her without a care.
