Defending policy, tradition and faith

Defending policy, tradition and faith

When it comes to dictating how clubs and organizations should be led on CSU campuses, government agencies felt it was best to put an end to the InterVarsity Christian Club across all CSU campuses. In August the chancellor of the California State University, Dr. Timothy White, banned the CSUN chapter of the InterVarsity Christian Club, […]

Leadership from the “other faiths/non-faiths” category

Leadership from the “other faiths/non-faiths” category

I’m appalled to think that after all the bells and whistles humanity has crafted for itself, we’re still hell-bent on exercising our primitive urge to draw lines in the sand. When Dr. Timothy White, chancellor of the California State University, suspended the InterVarsity Christian Club’s local chapter at California State University Northridge, for one year […]

CSUN should bring forth a universal smoking ban

CSUN should bring forth a universal smoking ban

Our species has acquired a unique ability to become addicted to our own inventions. Picture the car junkies, the comic book collectors or the Apple evolvers. Then you have those who become addicted to the chemical dependents. It is less difficult to recall what these may be, regrettably. Though the research exists that it can […]

Greek alumni responds to administration’s decision on alleged hazing

Greek alumni responds to administration’s decision on alleged hazing

As a student of CSUN and alumni of the Greek system, I feel that the restrictions, and reaction of the CSUN administration, to the slew of hazing allegations were justified. When a student dies while participating in a fraternity activity, there should be a fast, appropriate and supportive response from the faculty and students of the […]

Condom dispensers on campus are long overdue

Condom dispensers on campus are long overdue

I would applaud the decision of the CSUN administration to place condom dispensers in various locations across campus. This action, though, would come about thirty-three years too late. In those three decades, how many CSUN students, faculty and staff have contracted a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or had an unplanned pregnancy because of a lack […]

CSUN is trying to ruin graduation for us, yet again

CSUN is trying to ruin graduation for us, yet again

In a sequel to last year’s frenzy, campus administration has once again insulted the student body by serving us with yet another false dichotomy. Keep commencement at the Oviatt Library – allowing up to seven tickets – or sabotage 15 years of Matador tradition and move commencement to the North Field, offering a potential nine […]

Voting for a new faculty contract

A mother in Oregon is charged with the murder of her autistic son, and House Speaker John Boehner says he’ll use the GOP majority in Congress to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Matador News reporter Phillip Sugarman talks to CSUN Cinema and Television Arts Professor Nate Thomas about the tentative agreement between the faculty and […]

Undocumented students’ dreams and voices need to be heard

Undocumented students’ dreams and voices need to be heard

For many students, attending college can be a huge struggle, and I don’t mean the average challenges that come with writing papers, taking exams, getting classes and paying tuition. I am referring to the issues that undocumented students go through on a daily basis. They are often marginalized, excluded, denied resources, left to figure it […]
