  It has been proclaimed that this piece of paper is the pathway to a richer life. The ‘American dream’ can be realized; securing a well paying job, buying a house and accumulating savings. But this is far from the truth. In fact, this piece of paper, a college degree, is increasi...

Maybe all roads do lead to Rome. So far this year, the Vatican and the Catholic Church have been hubs of newsworthy activity. Stories have ranged from the comic—a fake cardinal sneaking into the Sistine Chapel—to the tragic—Cardinal Mahoney shielding abusive priests in Los Angeles. But easily, the most im...

Oh, the myth of the four-year college degree. While many anecdotes about education prices going up permeate our campus life, a new study shows that the feeling holds some weight in reality. On average, about half of undergrad students in the U.S. manage to earn a degree in six years. Consequently, the four-y...

Aggression and physicality is an integral and necessary part of sports, but unfortunately it has spilled into the homes of many prominent athletes. Athletes have been increasingly linked to domestic violence and it has developed into a growing trend that frankly makes me cringe. The most recent...

  CSUN is apparently stepping into the 21st century with a program that on its face holds much promise, but after serious consideration leaves too many questions unanswered. The pilot program currently being considered would allow for classes to integrate Apple’s iPad into a curric...

Many fans, including myself, lost hope for making the postseason when the Lakers were buried in a midseason sub-.500 hole and it was announced that starting power forward Pau Gasol would miss six weeks due to a ligament tear in his foot. The Lakers, however, stayed valiant as they are in the ...

  In perhaps one of the craziest college basketball seasons at the top of the standings, a new number one was crowned this week, the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Honestly, the Bulldogs are a team that constantly is among the best in the country, but to consider them the best team is just ludicrous....

Tolerance. It's a big word these days, and to be honest, it should be. The university system prides itself on being a safe place where different people and ideas come together in order to learn more about the world while also learning more about ourselves. Undoubtedly, the diversity of world-vi...
