Opinion: Campus safety

Long Beach City College students should brief themselves on campus safety statistics to become more aware of campus crime. Both campuses have the resources to inform students, and that benefits the school and students as a whole. According to the LBCC annual security report both the LAC and the PCC still have occurrences when it comes to robbery, vehicle thefts,...
Long Beach City College’s bus shuttles are not perfect. Even though they are a great benefit to students who have classes on both campuses throughout the day, the shuttle program has its areas where improvement is needed. There are only two buses to accommodate a campus of more than 24,000 students and on top of that students have to...
It’s a brand semester at Long Beach City College meaning classes are in session, students are on campus and the Viking is back is business. The Viking is LBCC’s very own news outlet providing readers with all things Long Beach related. This semester the students have spoken and want the Viking to know what they want to see this...
In school, young girls are taught what a menstrual cycle is, and what menstrual products to use. It took five years of periods for me to learn that tampons and pads contain toxic chemicals that could be life-threatening. Beginning in junior high females should be educated on all the menstrual product options available to them, besides disposable products. The only menstrual...
Skateboarders  are rolling around all  over campus and I’m all for it,but the school is not.

I read the campus rules, I understand...

As a first year student at Long Beach City College I was generally curious about this new mysterious environment. Walking around the school made me notice multiple things: one, I have no idea where anything is and two, the school seems a little behind for the times. The printer around the Assessment & Orientation office was broken, the desk in...
Bill AB-302, a bill that would allow homeless students to sleep in their cars overnight on campus, is still in committee at the state level and even though it has not passed yet, it has already sparked a debate on campus. If it passes, it will have an immediate and positive impact for the...
Hormonal birth control is harmful for women, especially being that college-aged women are among the great percentage to use contraceptives. Synthetic hormones are an unnatural disturbance to the body, in long or short-term use, being that their purpose is to alter your body chemistry in order to stop natural phenomena from taking place.
The new, colorful and interactive 3-D map on the LBCC website is a terrific idea. Having something reliable to tell you what each building has inside is a blessing for those who are new to the campus. With a total student population of over 24,000 and growing, it is easy...
