One sport to rule them all

One sport to rule them all

We have all been witnesses to the level of interest given to certain sport programs over others. It is true that the most popular sport does deserve the attention it gets, but at what point does the focus on one sport become too much? Is favoritism noticed when one team doesn’t have a score keeper […]

Cash starved students struggle with added expenses

Cash starved students struggle with added expenses

Classes at Pierce College are less expensive than most university courses, which is why a lot of students choose to attend a community college prior to a higher-level institution. At $46 a unit, a student can be a full-time for less than $600 a semester. If someone actually wants to pass these classes though, they […]

Lights out across Pierce College

One of the worst times to be at Pierce College is during the night. When the sun sets and the few sources of light left are the fluorescent glow from open classroom doors, or from the hallways, dangerous events have been known to take place at Pierce College. For the safety of everyone on campus, […]

Shaking down safety protocols and procedures

Shaking down safety protocols and procedures

Protocols for emergency situations are important for college campuses, and having a campus in a geologically active state like California means being prepared for an earthquake is a major concern. Experiencing an earthquake is rarely an easy ordeal. The one that hit the Los Angeles area the morning of Monday, March 17, rattled the nerves […]

Less preaching more teaching

Less preaching more teaching

When a professor’s  personal beliefs outside the coursework influence the curriculum, it is damaging to the students. Teachers who use their lecture time to shrew political or religious ideas which are deviant from the subject matter in their courses are in the wrong. Classes where teachers are willfully lenient in grading and in turn use […]

Prejudice isn’t pretty

Prejudice isn’t pretty

At a college campus, people are expected to carry themselves with a certain level of professionalism, but at Pierce College there seems to be a trend of deteriorating social standards. This is clear in the lack of respect with which students acknowledge themselves and one another. Deviation from mutually respectful social dialogue is giving rise […]

Growing toward a degree, career

Growing toward a degree, career

Community colleges are a great way for anyone undecided on a career to discover themselves and their educational goals, but a growing trend in government is to rush students through this process. In the Spring 2012 District Student Survey, prepared by Pierce College research analyst Kate Astor, it shows that while almost three quarters of […]

Who you gonna call?

Who you gonna call?

An institution of higher learning requires the flow of information from all levels of the administration and faculty so that students’ basic questions can have immediate answers. With that in mind, administrators should be more accessible and responsive to student inquiries and concerns regarding a wide range of issues. The Roundup sent three basic questions […]

Cultivate community on campus

Cultivate community on campus

Pierce College is an integral part of the San Fernando Valley, but the current administration should steward more events that encourage the community to enjoy the school grounds similar to predecessors. During the early days of Pierce, folksy events such as rodeos brought people onto campus from all around the Valley. Decades later, events like […]

E-cigarettes have no place on campus

Students who smoke have been shunned at Pierce, yet a whole new wave of smoke has risen over the campus: water vapor. Cigarette smokers have been pushed to puff in the parking lots while e-cigarette users can freely inhale around campus without rules or regulations. If a smoker is caught inhaling their nicotine fix on […]
