Unit cap helps students

Too much of one thing can be bad. The cap prohibiting students from taking more than 18 units prevents students from placing themselves in tough situations. The cap is there to help the student and not hurt them. If a student were to have the liberty of signing up for more classes then would it not lead to […]

There should not be a cap of 18 units in community colleges in the LACCD

Time is precious and limiting the amount of units that a student can take during a semester is not acceptable. Students have to work, take care of their responsibilities, find time to study, travel to school and back, and attend classes. Allowing students to take more classes is more economical for the student because they […]

Pro: Going to far?

Everyday it seems like citizens are finding new reasons to gather in large groups to protest for a cause they believe in. Which is great, to an extent.   The problem with a lot of these so called organized sit-ins is that they are not very organized at all. Most of these demonstrators lack a […]

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 […]

Con: Cap on 18 units

The district should not have the right to handicap students’ progress of transferring to a four year university. Students should be able to choose their own roadmap to success. Students are responsible enough to make big boy and big girl decisions of how much work they can handle. LACCD needs to respect the choices of […]

Pierce should return the ITAP program

How long do you usually waste your time to find a parking place at the Pierce? How many times have you come to Pierce to park your car and couldn’t find a spot? How many times have you reached your class late because you had to park so far? One of the biggest problems that […]

Visit the Health Center

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. During the fall 2010 semester, there were 2,085 visits […]

Too many W’s – Pro

Dropped a class the first time you’ve  taken it? That is absolutely fine. Life happens, right? Work comes up, family needs you, you realize you took too much on yourself. It’s more than reasonable to decide to drop a class. Dropped a class the second time you ‘ve taken it? Okay, someone didn’t do his […]

Too many W’s – Con

The new regulation by the Board of Trustees should not count past “W’s”, it should allow the students to start fresh. When this regulation takes effect, Summer 2012, it will leave students who do have withdrawals in unpleasant situations. The ones with only one “W” in a class will be limited to the new number […]
