RTA Bus Contract Revisited

Ben Clark Students Exempt From Paying Transportation Fee if RTA Contract Revisited

In April 2014, ASMVC held an election to revisit a contract with the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) that would allow students to ride the bus for free with proper college identification and a transportation fee paid at the start of every semester.

Initially introduced in 2008, the contract that Moreno Valley College had with the RTA was discontinued in the Summer of 2013.

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.

Opinions

Social Networking

Social networks can be tempting during school hours to communicate with peers and other necessities they might have, but it could also be a distraction.

Depending on how it’s being utilized, sometimes they can be a helpful tool.

But when they interfere while being present in class, social networks should be kept aside.

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.

The Pain and Gain of Rain

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.
