Earth Week comes to SCC

Teachers and students are working together to bring Earth Week to Shoreline this year. A committee has been meeting since mid-March to generate ideas and organize a week long series of events.

Campus security is lacking, says student representative

What should you do if there’s a shooter on campus? According to SCC’s Safety and Security website, there are a few options. If you’re in a classroom, stay there. If you’re outdoors, find refuge in a classroom. Security also suggests hiding, running, playing dead, or, if no other option presents itself, fighting. Pick a course of action, then wait for emergency responders, only if 911 has been called.

Water bottle refilling stations will help promote campus sustainability

Preacher returns to campus, sparking conversation and opposition

Anthony Parish, the preacher who arrived on campus three weeks ago, returned to campus last Wednesday, bringing the same sign which implored students to repent and believe in Jesus Christ and warned them that sinners will burn in Hell.

Like the previous week, Parish’s preaching drew a large crowd of students and faculty, who listened, heckled and argued. The discussion soon opened into a discussion between Professor Ernest Johnson, who teaches multicultural studies, and Parish.
