It may not have been a lively crowd, but the panel stayed until closing at the Pasadena Library to discuss the impact of war on communities. One hour wasn’t enough, they needed two. Actually, America may need another 40 years.
The night was alive with the sound of culture at the annual ArtNight in Pasadena. Live music on every corner, a roto-scape film about police brutality by Lisa Mann and Yo-yo Lin played on the walls of City Hall, and a pink world of cherry blossoms made up a whimsical experience unique as the event itself each year it comes around.
When celebrating St Patrick’s Day, many seem to boil it down to going to a bar, and thanking the Irish for an excuse to drink early on a weekend. While there’s nothing wrong with that, this past weekend’s festivities also included some events that celebrated not just the Irish tradition of drinking, but also the culture, history, and people of Ireland.
When the world seems to be filled with nothing but disappointment and life doesn’t seem exactly exciting anymore, it’s important to remember that there is always somebody willing to help. Psychological Services at PCC wants students to know that seeking support is not something to be ashamed of, but is an admirable step.
One of PCC’s newest online features, Lancer Anonymous Tip Reporting (LART), enables anyone to submit and provide suspected crime information confidentially and anonymously to Campus Police.
PCC’s award-winning Speech and Debate (Forensics) members’ second home is the basement level of the C building. The hallway holds a collage of old and new successful forensics members and a case crowded with trophies, and behind the doors are forensics members either laughing, crying, or advocating for social change.
Students are warned: it’s hot, dusty, and dirty. Sometimes also muddy, rainy, and windy. It’s tedious work, digging for hours for something that might not be there.
Outside the Boone Family Art Gallery last Friday, a crowd gathers around and watches flamenco guitarist Stephen Dick perform. Suddenly a man emerges from that crowd, turns around and says, “I didn’t know PCC did stuff like this,” he said passionately. “This is awesome.”
“I do not wish [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.”
PCC is about to launch Starfish, a software platform that sends early-alerts to students based on their class performance and faculty concerns, then puts them in contact in real time with the resources designed to help them such as counseling.
