Open house wants input for district-wide master plan Jesús A. Rodríguez Tejano Tribune

Why is Mission del Paso so small? Why are most the classes at Valle Verde? Why aren‘t any swimming pools at the college? An open house by architecture firm SmithGroupJJR+Mijares-Mora will be held on May 7 and 8 at every EPCC campus (full schedule at green column on the right side of the page) to discuss with students, faculty and staff about potential facility expansions and changes that could address these needs. The function of the open houses is to get input to create a master plan for EPCC. “It’s very important for students to come, they all are the whole reason that the college exists,” said EPCC President, Dr. William Serrata. “When you come to an open house, you’ll know based on your experiences what we need the college needs to do better, what we need to change, what we need to add to the

Students still on time to meet deadlines

Registration for summer sessions ends this month.

With the spring semester almost over, students start to worry about important things like applying for financial aid, and registration for the following semesters. There is still time for all

rector of Admissions and Registrar. The first deadline to pay for summer registration is May 8. Summer registration will be turned off from May 9 to 11 because EPCC staff will start processing financial aid applications, loans, and getting enrolled students ready for their next semester. Late registration will reopen on May 14 and will be closed on the 24. There is a late registration fee of $25 for every student that registers from May 12 to 23. “The longer you wait to register, the harder it will be to find the correct schedule that fits the student,” Hendry said. Summer classes will begin May 26. Financial aid applications are another step that students have to go through. It is still not late to apply for the 2013/14 financial aid year. Students have until June

30 to finish their FAFSA application. It is recommended to apply before March 15. “If you are not taking any summer classes and you are ready for the fall semester, then you should apply for financial aid now,” said Raul Lerma, Executive Director of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs. “But if you haven’t applied yet, don’t panic, you still have until the last weeks before the fall semester starts,” Lerma explained. Lerma recommends students to check their school email regularly and apply as soon as possible. “I can’t stress it enough. Open up your email and register for fall semester now,” Lerma concluded. For more information about registration, contact Daryle Hendry by phone at 915-931-2580, or about financial aid, call Raul Lerma at 915-831-2565.

Semester wraps up with student film festival Denisse Franco Tejano Tribune

El Paso Community College will be hosting its 4th annual Tejano Film Festival on Saturday, May 10 at 7 p.m. at the Administrative Service Center Boardroom. The festival will showcase short films by students. They can be fiction or documentary, and should be 15 minutes or less. The best films will get an award. “I think when you make a film it really says a lot about you on the inside, your personality comes out when you show your work,” said Elvira CarrizalDukes, coordinator of the Tejano Film Festival. “It is a great opportunity to get to know each other more and learn about each other’s different perspectives,” CarrizalDukes added The event will be free and open to the public. “I would love for a huge chunk of the audience to be EPCC students who were involved in some way in any of the films we end up showing,” said Carrizal-Dukes. “It’s always such a great pleasure you get as a student and as an artist

when you get to see your work displayed. “I think that’s just inspiring because then it makes you want to focus on that as a career.” Carrizal-Dukes emphasized how presenting a short film to an audience is an opportunity to get exposure and experience, as well as being able to add projects to resumes. “I think once you make a

film that you exhibit, that officially makes you a filmmaker,” said Carrizal-Dukes. “The more festivals that you present your work, the better. It gives you the motivation and inspiration to pursue that career, because you get the experience of exhibiting and receiving positive feedback.” ”It’s a great opportunity for students,” Carrizal-Dukes said.

“I think it’s great that students are submitting work for it.” Awards will be given at the end of the festival. According to CarrizalDukes, award details are still in the works, but it will be “one-ofa-kind artistic item.” “I don’t want to give it away,” Carrizal-Dukes said. “It will be something tangible that they can take home and hang on

Things to consider about banning guns A Different Perspective

Jesús A. Rodríguez

The Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014 will allow licensed people in Georgia to carry guns into some bars, churches, school zones, government buildings and certain parts of airports. Of course, some people were celebrating, and others complaining the “guns everywhere bill” that will go into effect July 1. I’ve heard all the pros and cons about having the

freedom to own a gun. Proponents will argue that The Second Amendment allows us to have weapons so that if citizens of the U.S. want to take down the government, they’ll have the means to do it. Critics debate that law makes guns fall into the hands of dangerous mentally unstable people. Is banning them all the answer? Who is right in this debate? There are some things that I think should be taken into consideration about gun prohibition. I am aware that even if citizens wanted to rise against the government, guns would not help win

against chemical weapons or high-tech warfare, which people at the top obviously have. In the past couple of years, we have been seeing a lot in the news about mass shootings. So, is having a gun better than not having anything to defend ourselves from the government and crazy people? It’s up to you to decide, but I believe things could be worse if they were completely banned. Let’s say guns were made illegal in the United States. We have to think about the consequences. Obviously, there will people that will not give up their weapons. Law will convert regu-

lar people into criminals. Do you think a multibillion business will be just ignored? Someone will take the industry. Drug dealers don’t control the tobacco industry because it is legal. Will the production of cigarettes stop if it were illegal? Probably not. What happened when alcohol was prohibited? People still produced it and an entire division of criminals were created in the 20s. The same will happen with guns. They will be manufactured underground; they will be trafficked illegally into the country. Just like it has been happening with illegal drugs.

Best lyric: “Goodbye to you. Goodbye to everything I thought I knew.” 8. “My Wish”by Rascal Flatts (2006) The ultimate sappy goodbye song.
Best lyric: “My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to.” 7. “Seasons of Love” from RENT (2005) This song is about enjoying the times you’ve had and remembering that life is short, so make the most of it while you can.

Best lyric: “It’s something unpredictable, but in the end that’s right, / I hope you had the time of your life.” 1. “Graduation (Friends Forever)” by Vitamin C (1999) This song is by far the best and cheesiest graduation song. It touches on the important questions we all have as we move on to a new stage in life. Will things turn out the way we imagined? Probably not. Will our jokes still be funny? Nope. But mostly its just fun to remember Vitamin C’s orange hair. Best lyric: “Can Heather find a job that won’t interfere with her tan?”

I personally believe the school needs to expand the cafeteria area because this is where all the students come together. I would like the cafeteria to have more restaurants available. I think the options we have aren’t that good. I feel we are very limited with our food options. I think the cafeteria is very small.

It would be good to have the school expand on new sport arenas. I know they have the baseball fields and even tennis courts, but I think it would be interesting to have something for golf where equipment could be rented. It would be good to have the Student Union rental process for sport equipment.

Jessica May Psychology

The school needs expansion of the student areas we have. Also, the restrooms; some of them are kind of tight for people in wheelchairs or with extra needs. There could be the burden during the process of construction, but ultimately future students will be able to access different areas.

The school needs more shaded areas and definitely shaded parking. A bigger cafeteria would be good so more students can socialize. A multilevel parking garage could benefit the school. I think it would be good to have both built-in shades as well as more trees that could provide shaded areas.

Tejanos catch their opportunity for playoffs Ericka Miller Tejano Tribune

This season has been an exciting time for the EPCC Tejanos baseball team. It’s been about six years since they dared fathom making the playoffs. With the leadership of their new head coach Robert Martinez, and almost all new staff members, the team has been very successful. Coaches and players are thrilled to have gotten this far. “The team’s excited, we have the advantage and we need to take care of business,” said Martinez. “We control our own destiny, there are teams in the

Open house

conference that have nothing to play for, we do.” As the season comes close to an end, the Tejanos continue to work for the fourth and final playoff spot. “We haven’t been close to making the playoffs since 2008, this is our chance to make a difference,” Martinez explained. The Tejanos split the series again this past weekend in Odessa and are currently tied with Midland at 15-17 for fourth place. Key players for the Tejanos this past weekend were their two starting pitchers, freshman Alex Garcia, and sophomore Albert Aveytia, both from Hanks high

school. Garcia threw well, giving up only 3 runs, granting EPCC the victory in the first game. Aveytia also did a good job, leading the team to victory in the third game. Unfortunately, sophomore catcher Gerald Ceballos was out with a sprained ankle. Freshman Kailer Smith took his place. “He’s [Ceballos] been out for six games and hopefully getting back to play this weekend,” Martinez said. The Tejanos face a tough challenge this weekend in Clarendon, Texas, because this is their last chance to claim a playoff spot.

Job fair will provide career opportunities on the spot Juan Gutierrez Tejano Tribune

As the country struggles with the economy, job opportunities have become scarce for college students. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. El Paso Community College will be hosting its last job fair for the semester on May 7 at the Valle Verde Cafeteria Annex. Available for everyone, the Career Services department at EPCC encourages students to attend the job fair. It will display over 25 different employers offering part-time, fulltime, and internship positions.

It is suggested to dress professionally and bring a resume to be prepared for interviews by employers such as the El Paso Police Department and Ysleta Independent School District. The job fair is free and extra credit may be available for some. Students who need assistance with their resume or would like advice on how to strengthen responses to interview questions are urged to visit their Career Services offices located at each campus. For more information on the Job Fair, contact Silvia Dominguez at 915-831-2636, or by email at

“In six to eight months [Oct.-Dec.], they will start the design for the new campus in Fort Bliss,” Gallardo said. “The design will take six months to a year. After the design is finished, then the construction can start, and that would take one year.” “We’re building the first of its kind,

a college campus on land owned by the military,” Serrata said. “We have about 10 million dollars set aside for the construction of Fort Bliss.” Back in August 1, 2012 the creation of the 70-acre campus was given a green light. “For many years, ex-president Dr. Rhodes was working with Fort Bliss to reach an agreement where they would lend us a piece of land where we could build a campus,” said Gallardo. “They worked on it for over five years, and every time that they thought they were at a point of agreement, something would change. “We finally reached a point where both, EPCC and the military signed a lease.” The open houses will have snacks and drinks. All students are welcome to attend and talk about their concerns to the architects. “Any input that students want to give, this is the time to do it,” Gallardo concluded.

Afterlife film revives faith Self-titled album explores

Victoria Acosta Tejano Tribune

Have you ever wondered if there’s an afterlife? Do you believe there is a heaven? Heaven Is for Real takes its name the book by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent that tells a near-death experience story of a young boy. Believe it, or not, the movie is based on true events. It is a must see. This movie will have you laughing and crying. By the end you will have your faith rejuvenated. The storyline takes place in a small town. Characters Todd and Sonja experience financial problems during a tough time in their lives. Their 4-year-old son, Colton, undergoes surgery and experiences going to heaven and coming back. Todd, a volunteer firefighter and pastor, is played by Greg Kinnear. His wife Sonja is played by Kelly Reilly. They both are happy that their youngest child Colton, played by Conner Corum, has recovered from a dangerous surgery and recovered. After Colton wakes up, he starts to say things he couldn’t possibly have known during his surgery and even before he was born.

Colton begins to tell his experiences to others. Most people in town are critical of his experiences. His father, Todd, is the one taking the heat for it. People were wondering how he could have gone to heaven within his few moments of surgery. Colton first describes heaven with streets filled with gold and pearls and how it’s beautiful with all the colors of the rainbow. “Jesus has a horse and markers on his hands,” Colton said referring to the marks on his hands when he was crucified. I had personally enjoyed watching it. I was crying throughout the entire movie, so if you are planning on watching this movie I recommend you to take a box of tissues with you. Yes, this is a faith-based film, but I guarantee once you watch it; this little boy will warm your heart and will have you believing in miracles and God. Overall this film is a great movie to watch with your family, and will have you believing in something bigger than yourself. The love this family has and the struggles they went through shows that when you believe in God and have faith anything really is possible. I give this Heaven is For Real a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.

Heaven Is for Real is a movie based on true events that is heartwarming and emotive.

an exotic mixing of music


The album’s new sound is very much influenced by the changes the singer has undergone.

Vivian Maldonado Tejano Tribune

Shakira’s new selftitled album was released on March 21, and it has been taking over the radio with the hit single “Can’t Remember to Forget You” featuring Rhianna. The album has been in the works for a couple years. She announced working on the album back in 2012, but was delayed due to the pop star’s pregnancy. Shakira recorded the album in Barcelona and Miami with various producers and DJs. In Spain, France, Germany and Switzerland, the album was within the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and in the United States it managed to

peak at number 15. The song “Empire” was released as the album’s second single in some territories. The album’s new sound is very much influenced by the changes the singer has undergone in her personal and professional life. Lyrically, the majority of the album doesn’t have the sensual and fiery themes that one has grown to like from her. That being said, she explores further into the eclectic sounds, mixing various vocal styles which earned her a spot as a coach on NBC’s The Voice The album does not disappoint bringing a mixture of pop rock with reggae, while adding some

of her famous Latino flavors, and even dabbling with some country and electronic dance music The album is very diverse. I think Shakira is more in tune and comfortable with exploring different sounds and even mixing them up to make a unique composition that reflects on past hits she has had. What makes the album especial is the variation on what the songs are all about lyrically. This albums’ versatility has an appeal to more than one kind of music fan and the songs show a tender and warm side of Shakira. I am still a fan of the pop star; I was not disappointed with the album. I find it interesting to see how her life has influenced some of her music in this new album by giving the world new exotic love anthems to be falling for. I have been exposed to Shakira’s music for a long time and I’m familiar with a lot of her work; the album is a seasoned collection of a more refined and warmer feeling in the lyrics, while providing that rich exotic sound she has. I give this album 4 out of 5 stars.

Valerie Terrazas Tejano Tribune

By giving away plants, recycling, and teaching about the environment, multiple organizations at El Paso Community College celebrated Earth Day for the 5th year in a row on April 21 to promote a healthy environment and to make the planet a better place. “It’s a day to celebrate the planet, although we should celebrate it every day, it’s a reminder for everybody,” said Mayra Cordero, Environmental Specialist and coordinator of the Earth Day Fair at EPCC. A variety of booths were set up by EPCC organizations such as the Biology Club, the Eco Club, and Campus Life to showcase why everybody must be concerned about the planet. “We should care about the environment because we have to live in it,” said Carlos C. Amaya, EPCC Biology and Environmental Science professor. The event encouraged students, faculty and staff to do more recycling at EPCC.

“We can recycle every day; we have blue bins around all the campuses. We recycle plastic, cans, and paper, and that’s a simple and easy way to celebrate Earth Day every day,” Cordero said. “If you don’t really care about how the environment looks, but you do care about what you do eat, I think that’s a good starting place that maybe makes you think about other organisms in the environment,” explained Amaya. Since its creation, the event has increased awareness in students about how humans affect the environment. “If it wasn’t for the event I wouldn’t have known as much as I do now about better care. It’s something to definitely put into daily use,” said Hector Coronel, one of the many students who attended the event. “I look forward for this continuing in the future.” said Amaya. “I hope that each year it grows and grows, and students that attend take home important lessons.” For more information contact Mayra Cordero at 915-831-3325.

Tedious system turns service into an odyssey

Victoria Acosta / Tejano Tribune

Location of the Instructional Service Center at the Valle Verde campus.

Victoria Acosta Tejano Tribune

The Instructional Service Center (ISC) is located at room A2427 at the Valle Verde Campus, and the cashiers at the Enrollment Services Center. ISC has been the resource that students and faculty use to make copies. Every time a student or staff member is going to use the copy machines, they must go to the cashiers at the other side of school to pay for the service. The procedure requires you to fill out a form at the ISC. First, the ISC staff will price your request. Then you must go to the ACROSS 1. Originates in 6. Where the sun rises 10. Kind of moss 14. Infantile paralysis

cashiers and pay. Once you’ve paid, you must bring back the receipt to the ISC to finally get your copies. On Sundays, cashiers are closed. The ISC room is open every day of the week. “I always feel bad for telling students and staff to come back on Monday with their USB to print out the copies,” said Laura Rosales, ISC manager. “Because then what’s the point of us being open?” ISC is in the process of improving the system for everyone’s benefit. “We are planning on changing the system. We want our business to grow, so I suggested that we get credit card machines,” Rosales said.

According to Rosales, changes won’t take place until next fall semester if everything goes well. Right now, students and faculty still have to go to the cashiers and walk to the other side of campus to get their copies done. This has been a problem for professors and students that have classes on Sundays. “I still like using the Instructional Service Center. I have used it for personal copies. And yes, there is a lot of walking involved, it’s not bad, but it wouldn’t hurt if they had a credit card machine in the center,” said ISC costumer Carla Newman.
