What about next time?

We sure do depend on electricity around here.   Monday’s power outage– caused by a blown transformer way down on Ventura Boulevard– struck the campus between classes and only lasted an hour.   During that hour, one thing became evident– we have some holes to plug in our emergency response capability.   Monday’s power failure […]

Surveillence cameras necessary

Surveillence cameras necessary

    The jewel of the Los Angeles Community College District is becoming more and more tarnished with every week due to mounting budget concerns.   But as your mother always told you, there are some things that you simply can’t skimp on.   Deodorant, food, toilet paper– you get the point.   One of […]

Lockers should be free

Lockers should be free

Pierce is a commuter college; this means that thousands of students come to and from our campus while carrying their personal belongings.   Many of these students depend on public transit and only have their backpacks and purses to accommodate their mobile lifestyles.   That’s textbooks, notebooks, laptops, supplies, lunches, entire academic lives, being shouldered […]

Where’s your school spirit?

Times are tough, and during these tough times there is one place where we can all come together, school. However, the truth of the matter is that many of the students at Pierce are indifferent, or simply do not care, about the school they go to. This reality should be worrisome. School pride is very […]

Worth the big bucks

As school starts yet again, students are greeted with long lines everywhere. Waiting at the bookstore to buy your books for the class you just added. Waiting at Admissions and Records if you were lucky enough to be added to a class, and struggling to find a parking space in order to get to class […]

Promote public education: Vote ‘YES’ on Proposition 30

It’s a real shame that getting an education in California is so hard these days.   So who is to blame for this crisis? At this point it really doesn’t matter. We just desperately need money for our schools.   Over the past few years California’s Department of Education has taken detrimental cuts to funding, […]

Law enforcers, get informed

Law enforcers, get informed

  The First Amendment of the United States Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”   Sadly, as Roundup staff has witness over the past semester, those who enforce laws on campus are not familiar with this basic amendment.   Law enforcers do not, in […]

Why only three lucky departments?

Instead of equally distributing additional sections between departments, this semester, Pierce College ignorantly added 42 sections, which include 1,000 seats, to three departments alone.   More than 100 students stood at the door of each biology class during the first week of this semester.   More than 100 students in each section hoped this would […]

Trustees are out of reach

Trustees are out of reach

        The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) needs to be more transparent and more easily accessible to the people they govern. The Board of Trustees for the LACCD, an elected body, made the decision to remove their contact information from their website last semester. In this current state of ever-increasing collegiate […]

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 […]
