Ready to move

Construction at the Riverside Campus rumbles on, as the beginning phases of the A.G. Paul Quadrangle renovations are just right around the corner. A strategic planning meeting was held April 28 to focus on getting the faculty prepared for the imminent move of 40 classrooms and 73 offices from the Quad, primarily into the portables located on Lovekin Field.

Profits buried in deep fund

More than half a million dollars of the money that students spend in the colleges’ bookstores goes to Riverside Community Colleges general fund, instead of directly benefiting students. RCC administrators are playing by the rules set in Education 81676 when the budget for the academic year is created.

Ecstasy, also known as the club drug, has become increasingly popular. Yet, when many students were asked about the dangers of the drug very few were able to relay any information on what they knew. Most students referred to it as the “sex drug.” It was interesting to see that almost everyone knows what the drug is used for but yet when asked if students knew the important facts such as the harmful effects of the drugs there weren’t many answers.
