Along with other media outlets, the Daily 49er has not given Beach Fund enough attention in the past, which is why I would like to explain exactly how crucial of a program Beach Fund is for the continued success of Cal State Long Beach. The Beach Fund program is dedicated to support the general needs of the university.  Student resources that the Beach Fund program supports include: tutoring services, the career development...

Adapting Faith Through Doubt is a theatrical adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning play Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley. This means that the script is used word for word, but not that the entire play is produced, and some of the imagery/choreography varies from the original production. I used light shadow theatre to show demonic possession and spiritual warfare. The play ran from May 1-3 in the USU Beach Auditorium. The...

How is Obamacare working out for your family? The new health insurance program is disrupting the healthcare system as well as the insurance program. I have already begun to see the negative effects in Kaiser Permanente. In the past, Obama said, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Period.” This does not seem to be the case. I am one of more than one million Californians who...

Letter to the Editor: Geography: The Whole World, Not Just A Map

Geography: The Whole World, Not Just A Map When I tell people that I’m majoring in geography, the question I get asked most often is, “You can get a degree in that?” Second most often is, “So do you know all the state capitals?” Yes, you can get a degree and a job in geography even if, like me, you can’t name more than a dozen state capitals. Geography is so much more than state capitals. It is explor...

Letter to the Editor: Daily 49er articles leave out crucial information

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

In regards to both opinion pieces published on Thursday, we are writing this letter to clear up some of the misconceptions the Daily 49er has towards the Associated Students Inc. We find it strange that a media source would criticize a student government for being more transparent. It would be a complete misuse of student fee money to hire a third party organization to review all officers in ASI. A third party would...
