Cliff Notes May 2004: Volume 1, Number 2


Socialist Mission
The woodsy and serene Student Center seems an unlikely place for a political collective. Yet there’s an important piece of UCSD history tucked between the UCSD Bike Shop and Grove Caffe. MORE

Cha-Cha Challenge
This is not your grandma’s ballroom dancing. It is a blend of athleticism, three-inch heels and sequins. With an undefeated record last year, the UCSD Dancesport team is lending credit to this sport. MORE

Water World
Like a billion other people worldwide, the villagers of the fishing village of El Barril in Northern Baja had no access to clean drinking water. MORE

Sports Shorts
Although last season was the first time in 18 years that the women’s soccer team did not make the division playoffs, the team nonetheless finished with an impressive 14-4-1 record. MORE


A selection of fall Guardian headlines.

Watson seeks TV policy clarity In response to multiple communication conflicts last year with student-run media, Joseph W. Watson, vice chancellor of Student Affairs, has created a committee to coordinate policies of closed-circuit television stations on campus. The decision has in turn raised concerns among some students and A.S. leaders. MORE

Democrats to begin newspaper Campus College Democrats recently began planning the start of a left-leaning publication called the New Frontier to give liberals on campus a counterpart to the conservative California Review. The publication, to be printed three times a quarter, will also focus on issues pertaining to UCSD students. MORE

Campus bans raffles, “games of chance” Campus interpretations of California state law and University of California policy have outlawed “games of chance” on campus. These games include all activities in which an item of value, usually money, is exchanged for the chance to win another item of value, including raffles and bingo. Most recently, the annual Muir Halloween Carnival canceled its planned bingo game, which has traditionally accompanied its pumpkin drop. MORE

A.S. to file election complaints In response to long lines and delays at campus voting sites in the Nov. 2 election, A.S. officers are preparing complaints to the San Diego County Office of the Registrar and the California secretary of state to urge organizational reforms in future elections. County Registrar Sally McPherson cited “big registration drives at the last minute” as the reason for the long waits on Nov. 2. A.S. President Jenn Pae says UCSD reached its goal of registering 3,000 new voters. According to the A.S., the registrar’s office only doubled the amount of booths at each site from the initial five to 10, which was not adequate enough to make the lines move faster. MORE

Roosevelt student found dead in her apartment An Eleanor Roosevelt College sophomore died after ingesting self-administered over-the-counter sleeping medication on the evening of Nov. 15, police believe. Her roommate contacted the UCSD Police Department after discovering her body in their Oceania Hall apartment, according to Sergeant Bob Jones. “ She was pronounced deceased at the scene and, because it is an unattended death, this requires a coroner’s investigation as well,” Jones said. “Pending the findings of the coroner’s office, it is an apparent suicide.” MORE
