December 06, 2017

Historic San Buenaventura Mission and Thomas Aquinas College were among thousands of facilities forced to evacuate Dec. 4 and 5 by a fast-moving and deadly brush fire in western Ventura County.  Most private and public schools in the fire area were closed Dec. 5, either from the direct threat of fire or extremely poor air quality caused by smoke from the fire, which had burned more than 45,000 acres, destroyed hundreds of structures (including a hospital) and caused one death.

Harvard Moves to End Final Clubs (Finally)

Harvard Moves to End Final Clubs (Finally)

December 06, 2017

Harvard University said it is going ahead with its plan to bar members of unsanctioned single-gender social groups, including fraternities, sororities and final clubs, from leadership positions in campus organizations and from receiving formal endorsements for prestigious awards like the Rhodes Scholarship.  The decision comes after more than a year of deliberation since the university first announced its plan in May 2016. The plan is essentially a death sentence for the dozen single-gender final clubs as they now stand.
