Our Newfound Compassion for the Plight of Immigrants The recent public outpouring of support for immigrants is truly heartwarming. Yet I can’t help but ask myself: why now? Where was this compassion two months ago? Four months ago? One year ago? Four years ago? Or since the outbreak of the turmoil...

Campus Security does a great job making Skyline safe, but when night classes start, their presence is not as strong. The Board of Trustees held an open campus security forum last October to find out how Administration employees, faculty members and students felt about campus safety across the three...

What I find very important about the city of San Francisco and the people I find there, is a sense of protection and belonging. Growing up less than 10 miles from San Francisco, I never felt alienated from society. Not until I attended school. But, whenever I visit Haight and Ashbury to grab some pizza...

I didn't get up one day and think to myself: "Wow, wouldn't it be grand if I was gay? It's all the rage with us millennials." All sarcasm...

As a conservative living in the Bay Area, I have learned that free speech is not free for me, or people like me.

I am neither pro-life nor pro-choice. I simply believe that the government has no authority regulating individual lives or pushing their agenda into people's personal life. I believe that abortion should be legal until the unborn child is considered a human being, and is then also granted rights by our...

College sports have been a huge staple in the college experience for students for years. Unfortunately, you can't have sports without fans, and the Skyline athletes are no exception to this rule. During sports events at home, volleyball for instance, the stands are empty. A few parents and maybe a...

Students should always rent their assigned text when given the option. Tuition is expensive enough. In a survey of 2,000 students from 150 campuses, the Public Interest Research Group calculated that 65 percent of students opted not to purchase textbooks last year because they were so expensive, even...
