We will have to wait until fall 2019 to check out all the bells and whistles (beakers and wet labs?) of Science II, but now seems like the right time to start imploring Sacramento State to make sure this building fundamentally enhances the University’s image. Twenty million fingers crossed, 20 million H...

Almost 50 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. came to Sacramento State and said that no country could be truly in...

It is time for America to think about guns. Not to feel, argue or bloviate; it is time to think. In reality, it is well-passed the time to think about guns. Truly thinking about them might have prevented countless tragic mass shootings in this country; at least 59 people died in Las Vegas Sunday n...

In his fall 2017 address on Aug. 24, Sacramento State President Robert Nelsen said that the “Finish in Four” initiative is positively affecting the university's graduation rate after just one year in effect. This claim sounds more like an exaggeration by Sac State officials to save face, as the ...

It’s clear as day; Sacramento State’s Greek life has problems. It is clear as well that they are problems for all colleges with a Greek community. And it is not limited to the poor taste and poor behaviour of a fraternity or a sorority member, but it extends beyond to the habitual actions ta...

As America approaches the paper anniversary of President Donald Trump’s election victory, it has been clear since he gained power that directive number one for his regime is to serve the interests of the strong at the expense of the weak. Not weak at heart, to be clear. Someone weak of heart would, for...

Congrats, fam. You’re doing it. Amid a hurricane of turmoil, you’re not stopping. You haven’t been scared off yet, as the U.S. is in its most vulnerable position since the Cuban Missile Crisis. You haven’t jumped ship yet to another country — perhaps your home country, or one where you have...

The California State University will be raising tuition this fall even as the California State Auditor accuses it of financial mismanagement — specifically of not being able to justify pay increases and growth among management personnel. This kind of behavior shows a complete lack of shame on the pa...

Next school year, Sacramento State’s historically problematic parking is going to become a “nightmare,” according to President Robert Nelsen.
