Earlier this month, the undergraduate student government’s Facilities Commission announced a proposal to install solar panel umbrellas with laptop and cellphone-charging capabilities. The umbrellas are to be installed in the Kerckhoff Patio and on the second floor of the John Wooden Center. How do you feel about this?
  • Installing the solar umbrellas is a good way to make UCLA a more sustainable campus. (43%, 201 Votes)
  • The umbrellas are a step in the right direction to make UCLA more environmentally friendly, but more ambitious sustainability projects should be pursued. (33%, 153 Votes)
  • The umbrellas will be of little use because students are not likely to use them, given there are electric outlets in almost every campus building. (21%, 96 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (3%, 17 Votes)

Last Thursday night, Bruin Republicans held an event called 'Sabine Durden; An Illegal Immigrant Killed My Child’, featuring a mother who spoke against undocumented immigration. How do you feel about this issue?

  • This event is a legitimate exercise of free speech and should be protected by the first amendment. (30%, 226 Votes)
  • This event qualifies as hate speech and shouldn't be supported at UCLA. (14%, 108 Votes)

The availability of exams in the UCLA’s official test bank is contingent upon the willingness of professors to donate their exams to be accessible to students. The projected usage of the test bank for the 2015-16 school year is only 4,200 students, and some argue that more exams would make the test bank more useful. How do you feel about this issue?
  • Professors should be able to decide whether they should make their exams accessible to the school test bank. (44%, 102 Votes)
  • Professors should be required to donate at least one prior exam for each class they teach to the test bank. (40%, 92 Votes)
  • Test banks are not beneficial in the grand scheme of student exam preparation. (8%, 18 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue other than those specified above. (8%, 18 Votes)

Last week, Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a bill that would have provided more mental health services funding for California colleges. Brown vetoed the measure due to it not having enough specifics about the bill’s funding sources. What do you think about this?
  • The bill needs to provide more concrete funding sources before it can be enacted as law. (51%, 79 Votes)
  • Mental health services are too crucial to college students for Brown to have vetoed the bill. (26%, 40 Votes)
  • The bill is unnecessary and the state should not have to help colleges pay for their mental health services. (19%, 29 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue other than those specified above. (4%, 7 Votes)

Last week, UCLA officially called off a proposed debate between California U.S. Senate candidates Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez, despite extending the deadline for both campaigns to respond several times. How do you feel about this issue?
  • The debate could provide Californians an opportunity to better know their Senate candidates, and UCLA should attempt to reschedule it. (76%, 145 Votes)
  • A debate would add to the discussion of the race, but isn't a necessary part of the election. (13%, 25 Votes)
  • A debate between the candidates is unnecessary and would not add to the discussion of their merits. (6%, 11 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (5%, 10 Votes)
