Moms Attending College

Not just teens but women with children attend college for a better knowledge and the opportunity to a better education.

Being a mom and attending college could be a little difficult and stressful depending on every individual’s situation. But a child is no obstacle to keep upgrading on education.

Healthy Relationships

In college, people can choose to have relationships whether it’s a significant other, friends, or family. Some people choose not to have relationships for various reasons. Others want to have relationships for many reasons.

Moreno Valley College Students

Homophobia in Moreno Valley still plagues college students.

Students of Moreno Valley College experience homophobia in both direct and indirect ways, in a society many consider to be post-homophobic.

As defined by the Oxford University Press, homophobia is “an extreme and irrational aversion to homosexuality and homosexual people.”

Student Views on Books

Books are important to the college lifestyle. Students need them for their classes and sometimes they just want books to read. These days students have the option to choose what kind of book they want. They can have a physical book they carry around or if they have some sort of electronic device they can download a whole book into and carry the device around.

Less than a month into the semester, a downpour hit the Southern Californian region and claimed it as its own. From flooding to minor evacuations, the rain failed to cease its relentless torrent. “This rain is insanity. I can’t even get to the bus stop down the street. Luckily it’s the weekend, but I hope that the rain doesn’t go into the week.

Car Fool or School Star?

In today’s economic style of living, one must choose between certain aspects of life and prioritize it, by needs and wants. A necessity is something that one needs in order to function, at least fluidly, such as a car, whereas a want, is something that one wants to attain for simple joy and pleasure, such as a brand new car or the car of one’s dreams.

Music around Campus

Moreno Valley College has been quiet lately besides the laughter and excitement of the students' voices. The campus has been missing some good wonderful music. Our campus has not had music playing on the televisions inside or outside the Lions' Den. Recently I have investigated the reason on why the school has decided to quit playing the funny, goofy, exciting music videos by MTVu.

The Teachers' Perspective on Marijauna on Campus

A few weeks ago I fought to get the students perspective on going to class high. This week I thought it was only fair to try and get a perspective from a teachers shoes . Going into this task and before getting the 411 on what teachers feel about the subject I and plenty others immediately thought the staff would be almost completely against such behavior.
