Balanced news requires a voice from each side

The New York Times defines one of the duties of a newspaper on their website’s Standards and Ethics page: “Whatever the medium, we tell our audiences the complete, unvarnished truth as best we can learn it.” A newspaper’s accuracy largely depends on what it can learn from its sources. When a source chooses not to share its knowledge with...

Chapman isn’t worth the price

It’s no secret that universities are extremely expensive. Of course, some are more expensive than others. So, if you’re going to pay for a more expensive university, you should be getting a better return on your investment. I’m entering my final year at Chapman.

No need to stress about study space

Maybe it’s the stress of exams and papers, the sentimentality of graduating or the sadness that another semester is coming to an end, but during finals week, every Chapman student is on the hunt for an open, quiet spot on campus.

Cupcake flavors reflect larger life decisions

By Tanner Sawitz, senior screenwriting major Whenever I go to a cupcakery, I have the most inexplicably difficult time making a decision. What if I would have liked red velvet better than banana nut? Will I regret my choice forever?! I’ll never get that $3 back. You can imagine how difficult the bigger decisions are for me. I never under...

California drought should not be ignored

By Mark Pampanin, junior political science major Remember January? When the rest of the country was in the death grips of a polar vortex as we sipped on our fresh-pressed juices, flipping through apocalyptic images of a frozen-solid Chicago, snuggled in our 70-degree temperatures and smug pride for living on the Golden Coast? If you remem...

Chapman’s problem with diversity demands more profound actions

A recent Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) report confirmed that Chapman has a problem with diversity. Maybe you can’t reduce diversity to demographics, but if you had to, you would find that African American students make up about two percent of the undergraduate population, and that male tenured faculty members far outnu...
