Alpha Theta Pi Celebrates 65 Years CAMPUS
Cynthia De Leon Contributer On November 15, 2012 sisters and big brothers of Alpha Theta Pi gathered at a venue in Luminarias by having a formal dinner to celebrate 65 years of sisterhood. Alpha Theta Pi was the first Greek organization to ever be established on campus in 1948 and have been recognized for different awards such as being the most diverse sorority. The organization has experienced many changes throughout the years like loosing their house due to high rent. One thing that remains is the love and friendship that the sisters have for one another. The ceremony included a speech from an Alumna sister, Dorean Harris Carraso who shared her experience and said that being a part of the sorority taught her to be a good and true friend. Newer girls, who are still attending CSULA, shared how it has made a difference in their life. Rachel Chua, 22 Business major said, “The sorority has
helped me become the person I am today, we are a sisterhood of strong, independent and outspoken woman.” Many Alumnae showed up to the wonderful ceremony by wearing the colors that represent the sorority Red, White and Black. Everyone was very happy to see each other. Carla Axume, who studied Library Science in CSULA and graduated in 2011 shared her experience. She said, “It feels great coming back to a place that holds so much meaning in my life.” When asked what the number one thing Axume learned in the sorority this is what she had to say, “To be open minded to others ideas and opinions without judgment. I also learned that quality time with friends is important and learning to multi task was essential in running an organization and in life.” Alpha Theta Pi is a local sorority, meaning there are no other chapters in any other campus besides Cal State LA. They pride themselves on that and being the first Greek
organization to be established. The current President of Alpha Theta Pi is Stephanie Cruz, 23, and states, “It feels amazing to be a part of history and it continues to grow each year with different faces.” When asked what the 65 years meant to her Cruz said, “It means that we have kept traditions, friendships, sisterhood bonds and this family alive within ourselves. Yes, we have been helped in the past to help our growth but it also shows that we strive for the best and will remain here through everything.” Cruz is currently a Social work major with a minor in Anthropology and will be graduating this Spring quarter and passing along her position as President. Greek Organizations not only brings people together but also builds strong individuals to prepare them for the future. The 65th Anniversary of Alpha Theta Pi shows the endless journey of an organization and proves to have amazing friendships that are formed and remain a lifetime.
Pre-Law Society: Preparing Students For Law School CAMPUS
Emilce Peralta Contributer CSULA is known to be a commuter school, meaning students attend class and once done, students go home. Some students aren’t aware of various clubs and organizations the campus has to offer. One of those clubs on campus is the Pre-Law Society. This club has been at CSULA since 1998 and serves students by teaching the vast opportunities in the field of law. The president of the Society, Adam Bonilla, explained what this organization does. UT: What are you in charge of doing/title/ your contribution to the club? Bonilla: I am currently the president for the 2013-2014 year. To sum it up in a word, I’m pretty much the mastermind. I develop most of the agendas and by agendas, I don’t mean
the other workings of what goes on I mean the infrastructure of it. So my roll is just making sure that there is a ‘comradery’ within the team. I have an unorthodox way of leading my troops. What I essentially do is consult, so I consult each titles/ brand like my vice-president, my secretary on things that I’ve seen over my years on the weaknesses and the strengths that we can improve. UT: Tell me about the Pre-Law Society Bonilla: The Pre-Law Society (PLS) is what I would consider a middleman to any academic success in law school. PLS emphasizes in developing ideal skills primarily LSAT ways of taking the higher step when going into law school. We try to focus on getting a high LSAT score although GPA is a major requirement but I personally feel if you see the material earlier you can actually benefit from it because it’s not like going to war with a blindfold on. The other thing
that we emphasize on is getting involved in your community because the GPA and the LSAT is one element of it but once you have your resume and you apply for law school, your extracurricular activities do play a factor in it. UT: What motivated you to join the society? Bonilla: That’s a whole other interview. So I’m actually a special case. To sum it all up, it’s sheer determination. I’m not a quitter. I’ve been here for over ten years. I was academically immature; it’s what I’ve been taught to say. So pure determination, as you can see, my wall says Loyola. This is pretty much what I live for but yeah determination is the ultimate key. UT: What made you want to become/run for the Pre-Law Society’s president position? Pre-Law Society Continued on Page 3

Nov. 25, 2013 Pre-Law Society Continued From Page 2
Bonilla: I’m a visionary so I saw a lot of potential and I have real life experience like I tell many of my members, there’s two things in life that you can’t learn; you can’t learn to be spontaneous and you can’t learn to be street smart. You either got it or you don’t. Once I came into the PreLaw Society I saw the potential, I saw the growth that we could do. I’m very big on brand building. I feel that this is something that if infrastructure correctly and followed by my particular ways of doing it, we can be reasonably known meaning that we can actually establish a charter, not going Greek but establishing a nationwide recognition but that’s only if we all share the same vision. UT: How long have you been in this position? Bonilla: Officially, as of this quarter. I always like to make a note though that I’ve been groomed by past presidents. I have to give them full credit. UT: Are you a political science major? Bonilla: No, that’s the irony and that’s one of the things that most people think like why are you...? I’m actually double majoring in English and Criminal Justice with a minor in Philosophy. That’s a mouthful.
UT: What are the benefits of joining this club? Bonilla: The benefits of this, there are two ways of answering that question, one way, this is another thing eventually you’ll get to know about me, I’m very blunt. 1. Are the procrastinators that they just want to be a member to put it on their application and I tell them they don’t get the experience. That’s one of the benefits that it helps you acknowledge the fact that if you’re a slacker you’re honestly not going to be getting into law school. The other benefit is that you actually develop these bonds. That’s one thing that I’ve been big on for the past two years that you develop a bond that essentially leads you into law school that we can back on, like a support system. Most people think of law school being competitive but it’s very reinforced when you have these bonds with people. So with the Pre-Law Society, aside from the resources we provide, we develop bonds that go in and after law school.
we’re doing is once again introducing this information to them at the risk of sounding redundant, we really want to emphasize on that.
this project is, how it’s developing into something bigger, and what I mentioned earlier, it’s the middleman to your success.
UT: Are only law students allowed to join?
UT: Since you are the Pre-Law Society President, do you wish to someday follow a career path in law?
Bonilla: No, this is an experience that I feel that if someone like you a journalist goes in there and sometimes it just takes that right person to turn on the light bulb. Like I mentioned earlier I’m a philosophy major, one of the main things that turned me on this is that in Plato’s symposium he said that we’re all destined for greatness it all depends on the people we surround ourselves to bring it out. With that being said I think that anybody is welcome, there is sometimes a bit of confusion cause sometimes when you go in there I’m putting you in a lions’ den where you have no background knowledge of it but most of our meetings are guided towards workshops to engage us so that way you can take advantage of it.
UT: How helpful are your meetings and/or beneficial in the future?
UT: How do you reach out to students to join this society?
Bonilla: I would say every meeting if I don’t see someone, not including my board members, walk away with what I feel is essential information I feel that I haven’t done a great job so I would say the beneficial meeting is every meeting. For example today’s meeting is an LSAT workshop and what
Bonilla: Honestly I think it’s just being yourself. Like I tell my members and everybody else, I can’t force someone to like me but the only thing that we can do is be ourselves and force each other to work together, there is no I in team. The best way I try to recruit is essentially just letting people know how genuine
Bonilla: Of course, the end goal is for me to be a judge. The short-term goal is for me to have a law firm. I’ve taken appropriate steps and mentors to guide me in the right direction. Once again emphasize on the bonds. One of the key factors that my mentor has elaborated on me is to develop these bonds now instead of in law school. UT: When do you meet and where? Bonilla: On Thursdays 3:15pm-4:15pm on the 6th floor English Department of the Engineering Building. First time is free but there is a $10 quarterly fee that helps us with the fundraising and things like that. A $20 fee gets you a shirt, and these fees help us with law school trips. Everyone should take advantage of this and clubs and organizations that the campus has to offer. Don’t be afraid to socialize, joining clubs and being active members in the campus community has so many benefits as Bonilla mentioned. Attend one of their meetings next Thursday and become a part of the PreLaw Society.

To Intern or Not to Intern CAMPUS
Oliver Ordonez Contributer On November 12th, the Career Development Center programmed an internship workshop at the CDC library. CDC counselor Ziedy Cabrera facilitated the workshop and covered the basics of internships. In her presentation Cabrera said, “Internships help students discover what they want to do.” Most employers would agree with Cabrera that internships are very important. Cabrera informed the students who attended the workshop that obtaining an internship in their respective field would have numerous advantages. Cabrera first shared with the students that an “internship consists of a student who works at a job usually to gain experience. Internships can be paid or unpaid.” She also said, “Internships should never replace a body at the workplace.” Even if it is a paid internship, be careful for companies who might do this. Another thing to be mindful of is college credit. The campus credits internships, but companies do not have authority to give school credit for an internship. Most interns are undergraduate students who are in their junior or senior year. Cabrera mentioned that most companies prefer upperclassmen that can apply their knowledge and skills learned from a period of time in college, than underclassmen who might have just started their general education courses. However, Cabrera said “Do not come [to her] your senior year, in your last quarter asking for an internship.” The process to obtaining an internship can at times take up to a quarter. Some companies might require the student to have a high grade point average, which could prolong the process as well. Once a student reaches their junior or senior year, they should speak with the CDC and/or major department about
future internships. “Some colleges on campus do require internship credit before a student graduates … ask your department,” Cabrera said. Having an internship will benefit a student in many aspects: experience, exposure, networking and having a competitive edge. Students who intern will gain real-world experience and exposure to their desired career paths. Although interns will normally be given small and seemingly unrelated tasks, they will be exposed to how a certain company runs. Interns will be exposed to
company expectations, rules, and regulations. This exposure will determine a student’s likeliness to excel or repudiate their choice in employers, positions and even majors. If for some reason a student is unhappy with their internship, Cabrera says, they should “Never burn bridges.” Do not let a bad internship ruin a business relationship that could potentially help in another way, such as referrals. Being professional, likeable and hardworking can amount to referrals. Networking is another tool that interns are encouraged to utilize. By networking with people at an internship, it causes
more doors to open for future employment as well as giving a student a competitive edge over his or her incoming peers.
internships are important. Gomez believes “an internship leads to opportunity and is a stepping stone to [her] career.”
If a position is not available at the time and one opens up in the future, the employer will probably call that intern who made a good impression and made an attempt to network.
Gomez took a lot of useful information about internships that she was unaware of during the workshop.
Career related internships “can beef up your resume,” Cabrera said. Some employers expect candidates to have experience in the workforce even if they just graduated making it important to obtain an internship. Attendee Maria Gomez, junior majoring in Graphic Design, would agree that
Cabrera said the CDC usually repeats the workshops every quarter for students who missed out last quarter as well as new students. If you have any questions about internships or other career related questions, the CDC has walk-in counseling Monday through Thursday between 11am and 2pm.

Chancellor White Comes To CSULA CAMPUS
Moises Vasquez Contributer Timothy P. White, chancellor of the California State University system, held an open conversation in the Eagles’ Nest Gym with faculty and students this past Wednesday, November 20th, 2013. Our CSU system in California is the largest fouryear system of higher education in the United States, with an annual budget exceeding $5 billion. As current chancellor, White is in charge of 23 campuses across the state. The number of people he serves is increasingly staggering, nearly 437,000 students, and 44,000 faculty and staff. White is the seventh chancellor to serve our needs as head of the CSU system. Previously, White served as chancellor of the University of California, Riverside, and as a professor of biology and biomedical sciences. In the past he has also had leadership experience at the University of Idaho, Oregon State University and the University of California, Berkeley. White claims he intentionally visited the CSULA campus after going to all the other Cal State Universities, and stated, “We saved the best for last.” He was able to answer six questions, three from Internet forum and three from the crowd. The
semester system was a hot topic. White hopes for a smooth integration among 23 CSUs. He implies quarters are too fast paced, especially for undergraduates and inexperienced newcomers from high schools and community colleges, which are usually on the semester system. White explains the various benefits of being on a two semester per school year system. “Semesters allow more time for students to learn material and would buy less textbooks,” he professes. The tuition fees at Cal State L.A. have more than doubled in recent years and are now staying at high flat rates. White recalls paying his $50 tuition in his youth at Bakersfield but says fees there are now close to $5,000. White ensures us, “A students’ family income that is $70,000 or less would receive full tuition benefits.” A male student in the audience asked why not “Pay by units as other Cal State Universities do?” White responded, “We are in the learning business not a learning commodity.... having the enrollment tuition prices set in a fixed plateau system keeps Cal State University students on a well thought out and specific path which does mean less time spent to just better your knowledge. I have no good answer other than faster graduation.”
Chancellor Timothy White| Photo by Timmy Truong Chancellor White says he has a fear of not succeeding because he is not connected to a campus. He says it is absolutely crucial for improvements by making time to answer questions in an open, honest conversation. White considers expanding our horizons in California by making Sacramento realize the CSU system is so large and serves so many people in many ways. White is open to taking recommendations to better our Ethnic Studies program. CSULA’s Ethnic Studies program had been in higher regards in the past and has been declining in funding and popularity. Beyond the social justice aspects, diversity among students and faculty gives us greater insight of diverse experiences.
A female student in the audience asked, “How will your legislative actions create diversity?” and White answered, “There are huge misrepresentations in diversity...we should not hide behind Proposition 209.” White goes on to say, “The group of people hired should reflect the society surrounding us. Our search committee has its best interest in campus and uses diverse lenses from a variety of people.” He also acknowledges the unpopular faculty members that have been a part of our environment by stating, “Outdated and cantankerous professors are often amplified here.” He explains that a diverse environment benefits everyone by giving us opportunities to experience different perspectives with enriched information and insight. He stated, “Graduates (of Cal
State Universities) should be able to compete in a global market.” White concludes, beyond fairness, the strategy to chose the best person (for the job) leads to diverse learning experiences. “Range of global experiences and perspectives enrich and inform us all, preparing us for the next tasks in our lives.” White would like to oversee a bridge between faculty and students. He said, “You are not here as a transient, this is real life, do not wait to get engaged, get engaged while you’re here.” Before wrapping up the hour long meeting and being followed out by eager students with more questions and photographers, he goes on to say, “Life is a series of chapters and if you keep waiting until the next chapter, you will miss out on a lot of life.”.
Food for Thought: Thanksgiving OPINION
Angeline Bernabe Contributer From the wise words of Charles Dickens, “Reflect upon your present blessings—of which every man has many—not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” As the year winds down once again, I find it impossible for myself to not reflect on everything that’s happened this past year whether they are the good or bad times. Now, I’ve never finished a Charles Dickens’ novel, and I can’t necessarily say he’s a favorite author of mine, but his quote was pretty spot on about the whole reflecting upon your blessings thing… especially
around this time of the year— Thanksgiving. With everything going on at the moment and finals around the corner, it’s easy to get caught up in the madness that is life, and to be grateful for all we’re blessed with even if it may not seem like much . What I love most about this time of the year, besides the cold weather and the yummy food, is how Thanksgiving gives people an opportunity to reflect on the past year without the distractions that a Holiday like Christmas time has with the presents or decorations. Rather things become more
simple—we’re able to come together over a nice meal, others maybe football, or gathering around the television to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and re-connect with family and friends. Three years ago, I started this tradition with my family where we gather before Thanksgiving dinner and we go around and state what we’re each thankful for, no matter how starving we are. Coming from a Filipino family, we never really had any “set” traditions that we abided by during Thanksgiving, and easily forgot why we even got together in the first place—
usually we saw this holiday as an opportunity to eat a hearty meal before embarking on many of those famous Black Friday sales. So I made it a point during Thanksgiving Dinner every year since then for everyone including myself to state what we’re thankful for before we eat. And ever since, it’s been interesting to hear what each of my family members are thankful for. To be honest, it’s what has made me fall in love with Thanksgiving and being away from home and in college, I rarely get to see all my family at once; So the experience
is heartwarming, a chance to re-connect, and a blessing on it’s own to just be able to spend time with them. Before we all eat delicious food this Thanksgiving and before I dine on some Filipino Cuisine and my family’s take on a traditional Thanksgiving dinner (plenty of mashed potatoes to go around and deep fried turkey which, might I add, is carefully cooked in a large pot in my cousin’s backyard every year), let’s just take this opportunity to reflect on all our blessings this past year. With that, I wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Holiday Weight Gain HEALTH
David McMillan Volunteer Columnist Every year I look forward to my family’s Thanksgiving meal. The magnitude of this feast guarantees leftovers, and thinking in anticipation about the holiday season this Thanksgiving surplus seems but merely a starting point for a pending shift in diet. And not only is there a seemingly endless abundance of food, but the types of food change as well. This holiday food flux is great for the taste buds (and goes great with a football game), but many of us notice that as the food increases so does the weight. Research suggests that college students gain an average 1 lb over the brief Thanksgiving break alone (Hull, 2006), so what happens in the time between then and News Year’s Day? Some self-reported data regarding holiday weight gain in adults suggest that even over a decade ago the average American might have been gaining 5 lbs between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day (Thompson, 1988; Rosenthal, 1987). CNN even reported in 1995 that the “average American will gain 7 to 10 pounds over the holidays.” Wait a second… Ten pounds? This means that unless you lost every one of those 10 holiday-pounds before the next holiday season, you’d gain 100 lbs every 10 years. And since more accurate reports suggest that American gain an average of 0.8 lb per
year (Mozaffarian, 2011), we can conclude that it’s unlikely that the majority of us gain 7 – 10 lbs in the short 6 weeks. So it turns out that our holiday weight gain might be a bit exaggerated as an average, and more controlled research suggests that the norm is 1-2 lbs through the holidays (Yanovski, 2000; Roberts, 2000). Although this holiday gain isn’t as bad as CNN’s report, Yanovski and colleagues caution that the smaller increases can add up over time. These researchers observed weight fluctuations in a group of American adults over multiple years and came to two primary conclusions. The first was that they added about a pound of body weight on average over the holiday season. These results could make one wonder how the infamous idea of the “5 lb holiday weight gain” came about. Well over 10% of the participants gained ≥ 10 lbs, and a few jumped up nearly 9 lbs in the 30 something days, so maybe it’s these more extreme examples that make us fear our own fate. It could also be that the added attention to weight makes us more cognizant of our weight around the holidays. Or it could also be related to the second conclusion: the weight gain was not reversed in the following spring and summer months. The authors concluded that slight although steady increases in weight during the holiday season probably contribute to long-term weight gain, now imagine what this means for
Cartoon by Tammy Nguyen those who gained ≥ 10 lbs. What then can we do to avoid gaining the weight? Obviously we can eat less, but that’s not always socially realistic. In the same Yanovski study the participant’s activity levels were measured. It was found that people who became “somewhat more active” gained less weight than those who didn’t change their activity… though they still gained weight. Those who became “much more active,” however, actually managed to lose weight. Guess what happened to those people who became less active? They
gained nearly twice as much as those whose activity level didn’t change. Keep in mind that this doesn’t demonstrate that people with high fitness levels gained less weight than people with low fitness. Instead this data show that people who modified their physical activity levels (regardless of where they started) to include more exercise managed to gain less weight than those who don’t change or who do less. This is very encouraging as it shows that anybody can effectively use physical activity
to counteract holiday weight gain. It’s also great because these results were independent of the participant’s food consumption (though it’s likely that the exercise was extra encouragement not to over indulge). So even though you should approach everything in moderation, know that instead of beating yourself up about eating more over the holiday you can just add some extra exercise. This can be a great way to keep the weight off in our extra time off, and in the process you can even get a head start on your New Year’s Resolution.

“Black Friday” Cuts Thanksgiving Dinner Short NEWS
Esther Chinchilla Contributer First scenario: Its Thanksgiving dinner, and the only thing you can think about are shoes, jackets, TVs, or iPads, you are planning to buy the next morning. Second scenario: Its Thanksgiving dinner, and instead of having a nice sit down dinner with your family and friends, you are having take out next to a tent, freezing cold. These different scenarios may be the reality of those people who are ready to go “Black Friday” shopping, or, “Black Thursday/Thanksgiving” shopping. The term “Black Friday,” name of what has grown to be an unofficial holiday that marks the kickoff to the Christmas shopping season, “was coined in the 1960s,” by police in Philadelphia who complained about the increased
amount of traffic out on the streets, according to the article “Black Friday History,” and published on the BlackFriday. com website. This same article also notes that the “black” on “Black Friday” “refers to stores moving from the ‘red [ink],’ which indicated a loss, to the ‘black [ink],’ which indicated a profit, on their handmade accounting records.
doors at 6 p.m., two hours later, at 8 p.m., Macy’s, J.C. Penney, and Kohl’s will open up their doors.
Many of the stores who partake in “Black Friday,” begin to make some profit very early in the morning, as they open their doors at around 5 am or earlier, according to the article on the BlackFriday.com website. Earlier this year means as early as Thursday, Thanksgiving Day however.
What does it mean to have “Black Friday” before “Black Friday,”? It means possibly derailing a long standing holiday that is Thanksgiving, and a long-standing shopping tradition that is “Black Friday.”
Yes, you read correctly. According to the article “Thanksgiving Thursday: The new Black Friday,” written by Lizzie O’Leary, Toys R Us will open its doors as early as 5 p.m., while Wal-Mart and Best Buy, will be opening their
If you would like to go shopping even earlier than these time slots, you can stop by Kmart, they will be opening their doors at 6 a.m., and remain open for 41 hours straight.
For employees at the previously mentioned stores and Sears, Target, and Staples, according to the article “Here’s the Real Reason Stores Will Open on Thanksgiving,” written by Rick Newman and published on the YAHOO! Finance website, it may mean having their Thanksgiving dinner at lunch time hours, cutting their
Thanksgiving dinner short, or not having a Thanksgiving dinner at all. All for dealing with potentially desperate shoppers wanting to get their hands on anything and everything they can. For nonemployees, it may also mean having Thanksgiving dinner earlier, cutting it short, or not having it at all, to deal with long lines and headaches, with the possibility of leaving the stores empty handed. While “Black Thursday” may come to ruin some employees and shoppers Thanksgiving dinner plans, it comes to possibly save them from the losses they have had this past year. It is yet to be determined if these stores’ decision to open on Thanksgiving will help, particularly when they are competing with each other to offer shoppers the lowest prices. The absence of some people on Thanksgiving dinners
is perfect for those planning to go shopping on Friday because they may not have to wait in long lines and find the items they want to purchase. These people may find shorter than expected lines because of more and more people opting for online “Black Friday” shopping, according to the article published on the BlackFriday.com website. The reasons why an increased number of people are choosing online shopping, according to the article, it’s because they don’t have to wait in lines, don’t have to fight other people over an item, and they can quickly find out if the items they are looking for are out of stock. Whether it is skipping Thanksgiving dinner, or having it earlier than normal, one thing is for certain, some people will be sacrificing their Thanksgiving dinner to physically or virtually, go shopping on Thursday.

Hello University Times Readers!
The weekly adventures of the UT staff never cease we as try to bring you readers, only the best and informative info on-and-off campus. First off, did you know there is a Multimedia section? We actually have a “This Week in Movies” that incorporates movies in the box office the past week, currently, and in the future. We are looking to expand the Mutimedia page for things like ‘Movie etiquette’ and ‘Best Movies of the Month.’ Feel free to check out those links on the website. Second, There is a weekly photo gallery on the website that contributors and Timmy Truong, our UT photo-savvy photographer/Managing Editor who brings together these pictures and embellish the website with friendly CSULA students, professors and events. Lastly, let’s talk about our UT staff. We count only four people currently on UT staff, but we have neglected to put a face on our cartoonist, Tammy Nguyen. She is our lively, witty, and clever cartoonist that never fails to make the UT staff burst into laughter. This is fortunate for us and surprisingly; the UT staff is riddled with funny stories to tell. Who to tell other than our readers? On Friday, November 22, Tammy came in with her comic and told us about her mishap with the projector screen in the Alhambra Room in the USU (University Student Union). When her Vietnamese Student Union was giving a presentation, Tammy tried to pull down the screen down and all of a sudden, the projector screen fell down on her! She was left with two large bruises and bruised ego, since she did this in front of her whole club meeting. She felt really bad about the whole situation but luckily; her club meeting went on without any further delay. Props to Tammy for staying strong and getting a comic in for this paper, even with her accident!
