Throwback Thursday, Week 8: (Lab) School is Cool

No move made by our administration is without calculation. That’s certainly the case for the recently announced Geffen Academy at UCLA, a middle and high school planned to replace the graduate students’ recreation center and cater to the children of faculty, staff and, somehow, Greater Los Angeles.

Throwback Thursday, Week 7: Undocumented students wrapped in red tape

I tend to avoid talking about anything so complicated it demands reading more than one Wikipedia entry to understand. This includes, of course, undocumented immigrants’ issues, which are entrenched in a history of criminalization, exploitation and – the unifying factor – endless bureaucracy. Read more...

Affirmative action remains one of the most contentious issues in higher education. In the 2000 Daily Bruin Registration Issue, Student Regent Justin Fong argued for the repeal of a pair of UC policies that banned affirmative action. Then-UCLA Chancellor Albert Carnesale, whose column does not appear in this image, opposed affirmative action policies.

Throwback Thursday, Week 4: Don’t Walk

It’s Thursday and I’ve somehow taken an Uber to campus five times this week in a panicked rush.
