Originally from Long Beach, and later moved to Pico Rivera, the third annual Tropicalia Music Festival was in high enough demand that it was moved to the Pomona Fairplex. The Lantinx-focused festival, which took place on November 9 and 10, had Day 1 headliners such as Los Tigres Del Notre and Caifanes. Day 2 featured Kali Uchis, the Buttertones, the Drums and other indie-surf-rock bands. With Camp Flog Gnaw, another huge music festival by Tyler the Creator, being the same weekend, it seemed like Tropicalia would have stayed at the same venue, but that was not the case. "I saw the line-up to this year's Tropicalia fest for Day 2 and immediately sold my Camp Flog Gnaw weekend … [Read more...] about Tropicalia music festival moves to Pomona

On October 29, the Faculty Senate held a meeting that discussed the concerns and issues about the power shutoffs. The President was not present in this meeting, but one concern was whether or not the campus would receive generators to generate power during power shutoffs. Solar power was brought up as a potential solution to future power shutoffs, but that notion was dismissed due to solar power being tied to the grid that SoCal Edison controls. Furthermore, solar power would not be enough to support a building. The Senate promoted visiting the Internet to receive updates in regards to emergencies. When decisions are made regarding the campus, Blackboard is used to send out texts … [Read more...] about Faculty Senate meeting addresses power outage
Season 9 of American Horror Story (AHS) created by Ryan Murphy brings back the 80's slasher films era. A perfect way to kick off this year's "spooky season."

The Queer and Transgender Resource Center lacks representation and participation for events, though professors and students on campus are helping raise awareness for the LGBTQ+ community. According to Bailey Stumreiter, lead student assistant of the Queer and Transgender Resource Center, the center is not being recognized enough and is sometimes overshadowed by the bigger organizations such as ASI. “Sometimes the campus [strategic communication office] is not willing to promote our events, but they’ll promote other centers’ events,” says Stumreiter. The Queer and Transgender Resource Center is one of the many centers on campus that provides resources to students, such as … [Read more...] about Queer & Transgender Resource Center calls for participation
