Letter to the editor: Critique of coverage

Filed under Letters to the Editor

The article about Brian Murphy's "anti-Trump rally" is inaccurate. It was just a T-shirt making event, and Brian, who did not lead the event, merely spoke a few words. The scraps of information that were put together do not make for a comprehensive read since some are given without context. I hope that... Read more »

My first thought after reading this was, yes, we should do semester system if we want to drive students away. Not all students who go to De Anza are over-achievers who want to graduate earlier. A part of the students population consists of part-time students who have to juggle between family life... Read more »

Dear La Voz, What did the election results mean to college students? Many friends of mine at different state universities report peaceful protest of Trump being elected for president. The reason why they did is might have to do the fact that they feel like their voice is not being heard and... Read more »

Dear Editor, I am writing to thank you for the recommendation of the recent TV series Black Mirror. It has become one of my favorite series. Black Mirror is just like a series of satirical yet alarming modern parables. I simply couldn’t get enough of its pungent sarcasm. Black Mirror is not... Read more »

I think quarter system is what made De Anza unique from other colleges. Quarter system gives students more choice about taking classes. Imagine we choose some classes in the spring quarter and we don't like them, it would be great if it is quarter system, it wouldn't be long and we can make new... Read more »

From my point of view, Wikipedia is good resource to get basic concepts and ideas about the phrases, but it is not good for academic research.
