Fair meal plans are not on the menu
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Students are fed up with what and how they are being fed.

Quake preparedness critical to LV

Kristine Delgadillo Staff Writer The University of La Verne has taken extra precautions toward earthquake preparedness in light of recent earthquakes in the Los Angeles County to prepare students and faculty in case of emergency.

Residents battle for victory

Members of the Residence Hall Association this week began the Battle of the Halls, for which students living in each of the four dorms on campus compete with one another in sports and games. The trophy was ultimately awarded to Vista La Verne when competition wrapped up Thursday night. The idea originated during the RHA summer retreat.

ASULV is finally speaking up

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, While editorials such as that presented in last week’s Campus Times (“Parking Should Trump Park,” March 7) are opinions, as professional journalists I would have hoped you would have examined some of the facts before launching into your commentary on Leo Park. As a faculty member in the kinesiology department, faculty adviser to ASULV, and faculty member of the Parking Committee,... 

Parking should trump park

Parking should trump park
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff The University’s student government has elected to turn the currently vacant area south of the Vista La Verne residence hall into a recreational space.

Shuttle lot should be a choice

Vista residents are awaiting the dreaded email to let them know what day they have to begin parking in the off-campus shuttle lot, anticipated for some time this month after all of the renovations are done to that lot, thus beginning another chapter in the ULV parking rigmarole Before the off-campus shuttle lot existed, students were in an uproar over parking and it did not help that the University... 

Please excuse my dear ant problem

The hot days in La Verne means it is ant season. Apparently it is ant season in the Vista La Verne Residence Halls as well. Ant infestations have been a problem for Vista La Verne residents since the school year started. There are numerous accounts of ants raiding students’ bathrooms, closets and beds.

City makes University pay for new traffic lights

Clo Hidalgo Staff Writer The University of La Verne funded two left turn signals on the corner of D Street and Arrow Highway, which went into service last month.

The traffic light had to be placed in order for ULV to be able to build Vista La Verne. “We submitted a traffic study saying that we thought the intersections... 

Vista parking plan solves nothing

Over spring break the Vista residents got a nasty surprise in the form of an email. Effective next semester, all Vista residents will be required to park in the shuttle lot on A Street rather than in parking lot D behind the residence hall. While this decision may be a Band-Aid to temporarily ease the parking pain, it is not a long-term solution to Campus parking problems and students should not just...
