ORCA card program under scrutiny

SCC’s ORCA card program, which can serve up to 650 students per quarter, may be discontinued next year due to its economic unsustainability.

Crime Logs

Parking lot prowlers

Since Nov. 20 there have been four reported instances of attempted theft in various SCC parking lots. These incidents are reported as “Vehicle Prowls.” Two of the incidents occurred in the Sears parking lot near Aurora Square. Although car windows were broken, there were no reports of stolen items.

Campus Security Sergeant Edwin Lucero said that there are frequent reports of these prowls in the area including dog parks and neighboring parking lots. Lucero also said that fall and winter quarters tend to have a higher rate of theft.

Discriminatory vandalism elicits strong emotional response

The defacement of Project Pride’s posters is nothing new. However, the response to this crime is new. The most recent incident of vandalism, which targeted Queer Film Festival posters, elicited a strong response from faculty and students alike. Statements were issued by SCC President Cheryl Roberts, Student Body President Ashley Cowan, and Vice President of Academics and Student Affairs Robert Francis firmly denouncing the vandalism. An open discussion was planned on Nov. 20 after a meeting of faculty, students and staff.


Identifying who identifies

by Molly Crews

Some would argue that it shouldn’t be unusual for an LGBT+ person to identify as an ally and wear the pin. They’re wrong, though. Speaking as a member of the LGBT+ community, I find that being able to identify members of the majority who support LGBT+ people increases my sense of safety. It’s comforting to know that you don’t have to be a member of the community to think that the rights of those in it are worth protecting.
