But what about those moments when Mother Nature calls a little too early and you’re in the middle of...
Schools across the state have slowly started to conform to the idea of having a week off of school during the week of Thanksgiving, and I believe we at Long Beach City College should do the same. With more High Schools and Junior Highs participating in the break, some of California State colleges are adopting the week off of...

The printer around the Assessment & Orientation office was broken, the desk in...
