Last week, the Afrikan Student Union released a list of demands to the UCLA administration in response to racist incidents on campus and at other UCs. Some of the demands include creating a Black Resource Center and establishing a $40 million endowment to address African-American underrepresentation on campus. What do you think about this?
  • The administration should not implement the demands, as they are not feasible. (46%, 133 Votes)
  • The administration should implement the demands, as they are necessary to meet the needs of the UCLA black community. (23%, 68 Votes)
  • The administration should not implement the demands, as they do not truly address the black community’s needs. (18%, 53 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (13%, 37 Votes)

The UCLA Foundation takes a 6.5 percent fee from donations to finance the university's administrative operations. What do you think of this?
  • The fee should be removed on small donations to ensure more money goes towards the donor's intended cause. (43%, 73 Votes)
  • The fee should be kept, but reduced to a lower amount. (26%, 45 Votes)
  • The fee should be kept because a 6.5 percent fee is not significant and helps finance university administration. (20%, 35 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue other than the ones specified above. (11%, 18 Votes)

Last week, the Daily Bruin ran an opinion column arguing for the UCLA administration to require written assignments be turned in and graded exclusively online, perhaps via pre-existing systems such as Turnitin. The column argued the interim solution to achieving a paper-less campus would be to mandate that any written assignments longer than six pages be turned in and graded exclusively online. What do you think about this?
  • UCLA should pursue a paper-less policy for written assignments in order to improve the campus’ environmental sustainability. (55%, 360 Votes)
  • UCLA should not pursue a paper-less policy for written assignments because it would not have much of an environmental impact. (17%, 108 Votes)
  • It would be too difficult to implement a paper-less policy. (16%, 104 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (12%, 78 Votes)

  • The current punishments for illegal dumping are adequate to deter illegal dumping. (22%, 59 Votes)
  • The punishments for illegal dumping should be more strict. (21%, 56 Votes)

Last month, UCLA Dining Services installed manual double-tiered combination lockers in the Residential Hill’s De Neve dining hall at a cost of $7,305. The pilot program hopes to avert the technical failures caused by previous digital keypad lockers. What do you think of this?
  • The new double-tiered locks should be expanded to all dining halls. (47%, 51 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue other than the ones stated. (20%, 22 Votes)
  • Dining should look into other lockers that may be more reliable and difficult to exploit. (19%, 21 Votes)
  • Dining should revert to using the digital keypad locks in its dining halls. (14%, 15 Votes)
