Due to unreasonable and extreme behavior, another college life has been destroyed. A life has been taken away from a family and community much too soon. It is disheartening to hear of 19-year-old Timothy Piazza’s death at Penn State and serves as a reminder of the issues that collegiate life faces. It is reasonable to assess that the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at Penn State was careless in their actions and as a result,...

One of the most traumatizing days from my childhood was the day I took sex education. There was nothing worse than having someone explain to me that one day, Mother Nature was going to come and bestow upon me a gift. And poof – suddenly I’m a woman. Let’s just say fifth grade me had a few questions about this. For starters, why couldn’t “Mother Nature” consider letting us hibernate versus having a period? I know...

The recent push for a divestment movement at Cal State University Long Beach is not only warranted, but necessary. I say this as the descendant of Eastern European Jews who moved to the United States to escape persecution, and as a CSULB graduate who will be walking this May with a degree in both Sociology and Economics. I strongly advise our student council to adopt this divestment resolution as I see it not only as taking ...

I am writing this letter because I found your statement in opposition to the ASI resolution on socially responsible investing and BDS very troubling and misleading. I will try to be brief and to the point.  You begin your criticism of the resolution and BDS by saying that the adoption of such resolutions has often been “accompanied by increases in anti-Jewish graffiti, vandalism and physical attacks.” Really?

As a Cal State Long Beach senior, I’ve had time to reflect on the impact our university has had on us, and in turn, what kind of impact we’ve made on the university.

I gained a wealth of knowledge here at CSULB, thanks to my acting and political science classes, learning and sharing experiences in Jewish life, and represen...
