Coyote Radio en Español is a special program of Coyote Radio, directed by Dr. Gallegos-Ruiz and Lacey Kendall. The program started in 2009 when Lacey Kendall, Director of Coyote Radio, met two students that wanted to start a show in Spanish. Student volunteers directed the show for a few years until they graduated.Later, Dr. Gallegos, a professor of Communication, spoke to Kendall and asked if there was a way to involve her students in a journalist media broadcast experience. “She was the one who brought it back to life and told me, how about instead of sending you two students, I’ll put the whole class on task,” said Kendall. Soon Kendall and Gallegos started collaborating together on … [Read more...] about The Roots of Coyote Radio en Español
By Joshua Aguilar |Staff Writer| Cursing, swearing or cussing, no matter what you prefer to call it, is a part of our everyday lives. Imagine yourself in your crowded lecture hall, a cellphone goes off loudly followed by the voice of an apologetic student saying, "oh s—, my bad." You hear laughter from all around as you find other people laughing at the student's embarrassment. Cursing has become a social norm and it may be surprising to find someone who does not use profanity. "I feel like it is just a part of everyday language," said student Vanessa Gutierrez."I am not shocked or offended at all when someone uses a cuss word when talking," added Gutierrez. Students use … [Read more...] about Cursing has become a social norm
By Steffanie Martinez |Staff Writer| Finals week is here again. You’re probably looking around realizing you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on all these textbooks you didn’t once open. All of this could have been avoided had our professors researched the “open educational resources” alternative. I might have been able to get a quality text book from $10-$40 in comparison to the textbook average that begins at $60 all the way up to $200. Open textbooks are written with the understanding that they will be free to print or read online. It is a beneficial option that has been proven to work at some universities; it would be a great alternative for schools because it would save … [Read more...] about Textbook Expenses.
By Haecheol Jang |Staff Writer| Usually, people do not use swearing as a literal meaning of a word. Some people just use it to express their feeling, others just use it to overcome painful or nervous situations, and some people curse to look tough. I like to play online games with my friends, and when we play games together, there are many different situations. We laugh, have fun, become upset and swear at other users. I have seen a lot of game players swear at other people or at themselves. Swearing is not only common in the online world, but reality too, and CSUSB is no exception. I often hear some cursing on campus and even in class. It is not surprising to me … [Read more...] about What the $#*% Pardon my French
By Devin Ramos |Staff Writer| The Middle Class scholarship will give relief to students and families that struggle to pay for tuition in California State Universities and Universities of California. The rising costs of attending college show that people are in need of a scholarship tailored specifically to their income bracket. The scholarship can cut tuition by 40 percent for families making under $100,000 and will also target DREAM Act students. A student must first complete an application for Federal Student Aid to automatically be considered for the scholarship. In my opinion, the process to be considered has been made simple for students to obtain money to help them … [Read more...] about New scholarship will give more aid to students

By Gabbie Corral |Staff Writer| The glamour, glitz and risqué art of burlesque dancing comes to CSUSB. The Women’s Resource Center in the Santos Manuel Student Union (SMSU) held a workshop on May 7 that taught students the history and evolution of burlesque dancing as well as choreography typically found in modern performances. “I’ve always liked burlesque. I’ve seen it on TV and I just love the costumes, so joining my friend was fun even though I wasn’t that good at the moves,” said student Carolina Mejia. Burlesque dancing first originated in Europe during the early 18th century as a form of theatrical entertainment performed primarily by women. The early performances were … [Read more...] about Burlesque workshop sassifies students
By Edward Hewitt |Staff Writer| Social division is something that is visible to many, but addressed by few on the CSUSB campus. Think back to the first time you stepped on campus, how did you determine which individuals you would associate yourself with? Gender, race, social class, field of study and personal interest can be things that are taken into consideration when determining which individuals to associate with on campus. “It’s natural to gravitate towards people that we think we can relate too, appearance, gender and race can be a few things we look at before we approach an individual or group of individuals,” said Kameo Clyne, a CSUSB senior. “In addition to that, I … [Read more...] about Coyotes on social division
