My Questions for Chancellor White

March 2, 2016

On Monday afternoon, CSU Chancellor Tim White addressed students, faculty, and staff in the New University Union’s multi-purpose room and responded to questions from the audience. Unfortunately, only a few of those lined up to ask questions were able to do so.  As one who didn’t have a chance to speak, I’d...

Letter to the Editor

October 7, 2015

Dear Pioneer Newspaper, As a former sports editor and editor-in-chief of the Pioneer I found Louis LaVenture’s article about the A’s and Giants missing in some facts. Mr. LaVenture stated that the A’s had traded away Eric Chavez. If there was any research done, Chavez is the reason the A’s ...

Effects of “Executive Order 1068” getting worse—help us take a stand

Nate Honeycutt & Logan Honeycutt

May 1, 2015

“CSU Executive Order 1068:” a seemingly harmless document that when enforced as official California State University (“CSU”) policy has brought nothing but despair, frustration, and isolation to many venerated student organizations affiliated with CSU campuses. CSU Executive Order 1068 (“EO...

This letter was submitted in January 2015. Ladies and Gentlemen, Ten years ago this month CSU Hayward divorced Hayward, its main campus name of 42 years and married East Bay.. No other CSU before or since had or has 1) dropped a 30 or 40 year old main campus name to take a new one, 2) dropp...

Letter to the Editor: Mike Brown

December 4, 2014

Mike Brown Your name has rang through the ears of Black Americans, Americans and people across other lands since the day you were murdered. They deemed you the “gentle giant” and somewhere along the lines your humanity and dignity was tossed aside. It wasn’t just a race issue, yet your death heavily...

Letter to the Editor

Patrick Wills,
CSUEB Student

November 13, 2014

The idea of voting, or rather the idea of the democratic process, is one of the greatest human inventions. The notion that we can gather together as a group and dynamically decide how we self-govern ourselves through a process of perpetual forward progression has, in my mind, the semblance of utopia....

Libertarian message is ‘problematic’

April 17, 2014

I would like to applaud the Smith Center for bring a speaker of such note as former Congressman Ron Paul to CSU East Bay. That being said, the Libertarian message espoused by Congressman Paul is problematic in certain ways. Libertarian policies are at times a mishmash of contradictory ideas. Nowhere...

Letter to the Editor

November 21, 2013

Dear [Pioneer Newspaper]: Recently The Pioneer published two articles in its October 17, 2013 issue that really caught my attention. These two articles, in particular, are important to two large California communities – students and prisoners – that are viewed by many as polar opposites. The...

The project examined some problems and possible solutions concerning local public transportation around and to the unive...

My name is Linda Lemos and I work in the Facilities Development & Operations Department.  I just want to share how very much I like the articles by Yousuf Fahimuddin covering topics of the city of Hayward.  They are extremely well written and one, in particular, had a profound effect on me.  The...

Zimmerman Article Misses the Mark

Jonathan Stoll and Heather Harbeck
Diversity Center Manager & Diversity Center Graduate Assistant

August 1, 2013

The op-ed from the Pioneer’s July 18, 2013, “Zimmerman Verdict a Victory of Justice System” initially comes across as a grossly inaccurate assessment of the recent Zimmerman verdict.  Upon further reflection, the recent Zimmerman verdict is, in fact, a victory for a historically inequitable,...

Editorial Was Insensitive and Ignorant of the Facts

February 21, 2013

Dear Editor, The Editorial, “It’s CSU East Bay: Get Over It” by Chase Thomas from your February 7th edition, is both insensitive to the feelings of many and ignores the facts of what took place around the name change. I lived it and was part of the fight against the name change from Cal State...
