Karan Abrol A week after I landed in the Bay Area, I went to an open mic night to stave off the loneliness and homesickness I was already starting to feel. Before starting, I told the crowd that it was my first week here, that my family was far away and that I'd lived all my life somewhere else. Almost immediately an o...

The editorial opinion article posted on-line on June 22, 2017, written by News Editor, Kunal Mehta, again contains a number inaccuracies and misconceptions.

Kunal Mehta The City of San Jose recently approved a proposal to put surveillance cameras on street lights. The proposal is extremely vague, and concerning for those fighting to defend our civil liberties. Similarly, there has been much recent discussion about adding surveillance cameras to De Anz...

Yane An I transferred out from Ithaca College, a journalism school in New York, jaded and swearing that I would never pursue journalism as a career after watching Nightcrawler, House of Cards and seeing in person the bullshit I thought journalism was. I’m honored to have my mind changed as I ser...

Neil McClintick   When I first set foot on De Anza’s campus, I was unbelievably ashamed. After my non-stop array of classes, I would immediately rush to take the bus home, after which point I would walk home dejectedly, covering my face to ensure that no one from my high school would recog...
