Where art meets science

The history of Riverside City College is created in part by the diverse community that has come through it. One characteristic of all RCC students and faculty is the will for survival and Sam Huang, retired instructor, exemplifies this. Outside the Life Science building one can find a mural created in the summer of 1975 by Huang.

RCC honors its past leader

The honorary renaming of the Digital Library and Learning Center for former Riverside City College chancellor Salvatore Rotella, was ready for its unveiling Feb. 26. Board of Trustees members, current and former chancellors, faculty, students, and alumni attended the ceremony on a sunny Thursday afternoon.

President Muto addresses RCC

Riverside City College President Jan Muto gave a speech at her first presidential address in the Digital Library as faculty and observers awaited what would become a new RCC tradition. Before the speech, with a smile on her face, Muto took the time to welcome and shake the hands of attendees as everyone filed in and took their seats.

A constitution for all

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Frito-Lay thinks women make stupid snack choices

Frito-Lay claims to have uncovered women’s snacking desires and intends to buy their way into shopping bags with their new good-for-you, gender-biased snacks. Whether in-your-face or through minimal effort, sexism in advertising is nothing new. Men have always been the universal target of beer advertisements, and women are naturally prey to health food campaigns so often that it might as well be presumed that they are the only ones who ever diet.

‘The last full measure of devotion’

The United States is home to some 300 million or so citizens, and because of this, one can hardly expect all of them to be present in a meeting of Congress. Fortunately, this is hardly an issue, thanks to the convenience of our representative democracy. But, while some Americans may be perfectly happy allowing our elected officials to run everything with no questions asked, a majority of us prefer to keep in touch with what goes on.

MCAC creates a more diverse RCC

Riverside City College students can look forward to new changes in the Multi-Cultural events for spring 2009. Talks of a “greener” Riverside brought up new ideas for the “St. Patty’s JUICE” event March 17. The Multi-Cultural Advisory Council plan to have recycling bins and posters promoting efforts to create awareness on campus about recycling, along with more cultural awareness and diversity on campus.
