Inflation affects campus attendance, forces students to reconsider travel plans

By Mya Castro

Commuter students from Riverside City College are making an effort to adapt and make it to campus despite the inflation of gas prices causing financial struggles.

According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), regular-grade gas prices averaged $5.82 in California. Nationally the cost of gas averaged $4.16.

The inflation of gas prices created difficulties for commuter students like Kristiana McKelvey, a choir student who drives from Hemet to Riverside three times a week.

Imagine it’s a Saturday night in the middle of the summer of ’97.

You and your closest friends are driving up Main Street in Corona to a show you’ve been waiting to happen since you saw the flier. You have a brand new roll of film for the 35mm camera you borrowed from your parents and have X’s marked on your hands from a black sharpie. Not only are you going to see Ray Cappo and “Better Than a Thousand,” you’re also going to see your favorite straight-edge band from Boston “Ten Yard Fight” at the Showcase Theatre.

From 1993 to 2008, fans of the underground music scene in Riverside county had an all-ages venue that they could call home.

The counselor conundrum


Editorial: RCC counselors must guide students, not dissuade

By Viewpoints Editorial Board

There is a very controversial saying that goes, “those who can’t, teach.” A more accurate statement would be, “those who can’t, preach.”

Students are the drivers who choose which road to go down and guidance counselors are tasked with giving directions on how to reach the destination.

However, it seems that the Riverside City College guidance counselors devote a substantial amount of attention to students who choose a more conventional path. So then, what do RCC counselors provide for the student with an unconventional dream?

By Hayden Kulick

The Riverside City College track and field team continued to put up impressive numbers at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays on April 9.

Sprinter Briana Olukoju showed off in the 400-meter run. Olukoju shot out the blocks with speed and maintained second place throughout her race, finishing with a time of 57.70 seconds. That time was an improvement over her previous personal record (PR) of 59.17 seconds.

“The girl behind me, her PR was 58 so she passed me on the straight so I said, ‘Briana just calm down,’” Olukoju said. “In the last 100 I was just using her to finish and PR.”
