Chancellor Gene Block sent an email to the UCLA community last Friday expressing concern about campus climate and responding to a list of demands from the Afrikan Student Union following a "Kanye Western"-themed raid and subsequent protest last month. Some student leaders expressed disappointment in the administration for not addressing some of the demands, such as creating a UCLA Afro-house and establishing a $30 million endowment. How do you feel about this issue?
  • The administration should not be held accountable for responding to the Afrikan Student Union's demands at all. (52%, 315 Votes)
  • Block should have addressed all of ASU's demands instead of ignoring some of them. (22%, 137 Votes)
  • The actions outlined in the chancellor's email were sufficient and will improve campus climate. (18%, 109 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (8%, 48 Votes)

UCPD recently announced that it will start to enforce hoverboard restrictions more strictly. Hoverboards are classified as skateboards, which are banned from walkways, bike paths and streets to avoid collisions. Hoverboards have become increasingly popular among students as a way to get around. How do you feel about this issue?
  • Hoverboards should be classified as skateboards, and should be banned accordingly. (40%, 326 Votes)
  • Hoverboards are similar to skateboards, but neither pose a danger and both should be allowed on campus. (22%, 183 Votes)
  • Hoverboards are safer than scooters and skateboards, and should be allowed on campus. (19%, 157 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (19%, 149 Votes)

UCLA announced Monday that Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate test scores will no longer count toward students' enrollment priority starting winter 2016. Instead, priority will be determined solely by units earned at UCLA or other colleges. How do you feel about this issue?
  • This is a fairer system of prioritizing students' enrollment in classes because AP and IB units classes are not accessible to all high school students. (39%, 403 Votes)
  • The new policy shouldn't apply to current students who planned ahead and expected their credits to count. (31%, 315 Votes)
  • UCLA should continue to factor IB and AP units into enrollment priority ​​as a way to reward students who take many AP and IB tests. (23%, 240 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (7%, 70 Votes)

Starting this fall, UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services is reducing the number of free visits students are allowed to make each academic year from 10 to six. After students use all of their available visits, they are referred to outside care facilities such as the Behavioral Health Services located in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. How do you feel about this issue?
  • This change is bad because CAPS currently provides more convenient care than outside care facilities. (43%, 249 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (32%, 187 Votes)
  • This change won't affect most students, but will make it harder for those without the UC Student Health Insurance Plan to find convenient care. (16%, 91 Votes)
  • This change is good because it will reduce the amount of time students have to wait to get an appointment. (9%, 51 Votes)

Gov. Jerry Brown approved opt-out voter registration at Department of Motor Vehicles offices on Oct. 11, so Californians receiving their driver's licenses will automatically be registered to vote once the measure takes effect, which isn't expected to happen until June 2016. There are currently about 6.6 million eligible voters who are unregistered in California. How do you feel about this issue?
  • Automatically registering voters at the DMV is a great policy that will improve political participation in California. (41%, 212 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (28%, 143 Votes)
  • The state should work on engaging unregistered Californians who are eligible to vote in the political process instead of mandatory voter registration. (18%, 93 Votes)
  • Mandatory voter registration at the DMV is unwarranted and potentially compromises individuals' private information. (13%, 65 Votes)
