Hey there, Golden Eagles! We’re well into the semester and the reality of things is finally starting to settle in. Don’t be alarmed, however, as we’re here to level things out and keep you focused.

This week we have an exciting lineup of campus happenings, cultural highlights and important information to keep you safe should “the big one” shake out Southern California.

The University continues to highlight the various cultures that make up our community, this time with the Lunar New Year. Take a moment to catch up with the CCC’s event which celebrated the year of the pig.

Recently, Mayor Eric Garcetti–alongside the United States Geological Survey, AT&T and The Annenberg Foundation–released the ShakeAlertLA app for Apple and Android Phones. This new application will notify app-users of incoming earthquakes, provided that the earthquake registers at a minimum of a 5.0 on the Richter scale.

In sports news, both Men’s and Women’s basketball continue to push through their seasons as the CCAA playoffs approach. Read up on the latest news regarding both teams and get ready for the University’s homecoming game this Thursday against Cal State East Bay.

The University Times is also excited to announce the first edition of the “Best of the Best”, which will publish in a upcoming week. Visit the University Time’s website to take part in the survey and provide your opinion on various “best of” brands throughout Los Angeles.

With much ahead of us, and many upcoming events and important news breaking each day, the University Times continues to deliver high quality, honest news to the University community.
