What Budget Cuts?



This is an urgent issue. We need everyone on board.

From the group:

“Concerned CSULB community member:

Having trouble affording tuition due to the latest fee increases? Know someone who is? Think that students deserve no bullshit when it comes to their EDUCATION?
Wednesday September 9
@ 2pm, RAZA Resource Center

Thursday September 10
@ 12pm, Meet by Prospector Pete Statue
Please wear black for this action and don’t forget your snarky posters and mourning props.

We are a coalition of students who are concerned and yes, a bit angry over the current status of public higher education. We are ready to converse, step up and make demands.

To kick off the semester, we are having an action on Thursday September 10 (12pm, meet by Prospector Pete statue) to garner interest. We will be passing out flyers to recruit students and to show the campus that some of us are quite concerned. We will be “mourning” for our education in a procession down Friendship Walk during Week of Welcome. Please wear black for this action and don’t forget your snarky posters and mourning props.

If you are interested in speaking logistics for September 10 and getting more involved, make sure to attend the coalition meeting on Wednesday September 9 @ 2pm, RAZA Resource Center (FO4 – 262). Get the location for the meeting and keep up-to-date by joining our mailing list: Just say you wish to sign-up.

While a few of us have planned this first action mainly for recruitment purposes, we are looking forward to working with anyone else interested on future events.”

The Sociology Student Conference

The Sociology Student Research ConferenceThe Sociology Student Research Conference


Have you written a paper that you truly enjoy?  I mean, one that you’ve handed into the professor, knowing outright that any less than an A+ and you’ll overthrow President Alexander’s office in one raging Red-bull induced rampage?  I’m sure you haven’t.  But, we would like to see it.

We are having a call for papers.  Any paper.  Good papers.  Bad ones, too.  Either way, we want you to send it to us.  And, we want YOU to present at our annual Sociology Student Conference on May 5 at noon.

Let us know.  And we’ll let you know how good you are.

Best, John Guevarra.


Send all papers to: with the subject title: “S.S.C. Paper”

SSA/AKD Meeting!

We will be holding our last meeting before spring break on Thursday, Mar. 17, in USU-304 at 6:30 p.m.  Meetings will resume Thursday, April 10; same time, same place.

All those weeks of preparation and discussion have served us well.  This week we’ll be doing an experiment on behalf of Greenpeace called the Sustainable Seafood Campaign.  We all know about global warming, but you might not have heard thatglobal fisheries are predicted to collapse in forty years if trends continue.  We want to help Greenpeace to influence the way the fishing industry operates by monitoring supermarkets.

So, Thursday we are going to go to the local supermarkets as a group to survey them with the activist toolkit Greenpeace provided us.

Any questions, feel free to contact us.  GOOD LUCK ON FINALS!

Tupac Shakur, world-famous sociologist.

Hip-hop: is it a vehicle for politics?  The video clip below cuts up interviews and songs by the world famous rapper, Tupac Shakur.  Well, I guess politics, gender equality, and theories on social stratification come easy when your mother is former Black Panther, Assata Shakur.  Whatever it is, peep this video:
