Campus needs more daily parking permit dispensers

Pierce College should have daily parking permit dispensers in all lots, not just on four of the eight it currently has.   Finding parking quickly on campus is a rare, but amazing feeling.   But, for some students who don’t have semester parking passes, finding a daily parking permit dispenser is one more obstacle they […]

First day no-shows should be dropped from classes

Professors have to drop students who do not show up the first day of class.   Too many students spend the first two weeks of school shopping for classes, holding seats in classes they don’t even intend to take.   With the existing economic environment this practice must be put to an end.   Students […]

Where is the internet

Where is the internet

    The Wi-Fi service provided for students and staff on campus is terrible.   In some places it works okay but almost never where and when you need it.   The service is great at the library where there are computers available to you so it isn’t needed but in the Village area where […]

Seeking leadership from the ASO

Seeking leadership from the ASO

    The student leadership at Pierce College has an opportunity to make real change in the lives of the students but instead has settled for sinking into obscurity.   In one of the state’s largest community colleges, officers are elected to leadership positions in the hopes that they will take an active role in […]

Why so much money?

Why so much money?

  Cartoon: Maria Salvador   Class has ended and for some students it means an hour between classes, so why not take that hour to grab some lunch?   Well if you like “overpriced” food then the Freudian Sip is the choice for you to get your food here on campus. Of course the Sip […]

A long way up

A long way up

Illustration: Maria Salvador   The Grand Staircase, leading to the Art Hill, shows little mercy to those who must climb it, and even less to those who are physically disabled. The Special Services Student Handbook states that all students with disabilities must meet the same academic and other requirements as non-disabled students. This includes getting […]

Visit the Health Center

Illustration: Maria Salvador Students aren’t maximizing the resources and services made available to them at the Student Health Center. In fact, there have only been approximately 1,300 visits – counting follow-ups – to the facility so far in the semester, said Health Center Director Beth Benne.

The college’s mission

The college’s mission

Cartoon: Maria Salvador     The jewel of California’s educational system, the community college, may soon be changing for the worse and losing the pieces that have made it so valuable.   The California state budget crisis and resulting cuts in the education budget have convinced administrators and lawmakers alike that the mission of the […]

Get out of your carts

Get out of your carts

Cartoon By Maria Salvador   Sure, we have a 24-hour Sheriff’s Station on campus and we’ve seen cadets around a few times, but most of the time we find them riding through campus on their carts and sweeping by all too quickly.   What’s more, there are places where trouble could occur and those carts […]

The Battle To Transfer

The Battle To Transfer

    Priority enrollment should be given to students with the most seniority and who are ready to transfer. This semester found classes filled wall-to-wall with students attempting to add, totaling more than two and three times the amount of actually enrolled students. One might think, why didn’t these students just register for classes at […]
