As the Student Coalition Against Labor Exploitation, we urge USC to buy clothes from the Alta Gracia factory in the Dominican Republic, where workers recently unionized and now make a living wage.

Israel comes out on top To quote David Suissa, a Huffington Post contributor, “Israel’s Never Looked So Good.” This week, the peoples of the Middle East erupted into social and political chaos. Starting about two weeks ago, nearly one million people in Egypt protested their government, hoping the president would quit. According to the Wall […]

Headline gives comic relief I am a senior at USC, and I have a lot of respect for the Daily Trojan. I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into publishing a professional-looking newspaper every single day, especially while keeping up with school. However, on Nov. 9, the Daily Trojan surpassed itself. It […]

Chant disrespects school, tradition As an alumna who now lives on the East Coast, I have to settle to watch USC football games on my TV instead of inside the historic Coliseum.

While this generosity in normal circumstances should be applauded, one wonders at the wisdom of […]

Cardinal and Gold needs more green It’s every Trojan’s nightmare: USC is losing to UCLA.  Not in football, nor academics, but something that affects every student, professor, and employee of USC: our campus’ sustainability.  In an annual list of Eco-Enlightened U.S. Universities, USC is ranked 124 out of 162.  And we aren’t losing by just […]

A constitutional policy Hilary Lazarus’ May 26 article titled “Arizona Law Borders on Ethnic Cleansing” was ignorant and irresponsible. Unfortunately, Lazarus continues to disseminate lies and stoke fear with respect to the Arizona law in particular and the issue of illegal immigration in general. Lazarus’ assertions are incorrect on two very fundamental levels. First, Lazarus […]

No space for discussion Ordinarily, I am not an overly political person. In fact, as a Ph.D student in music history, much of my life is devoted to a retreat from the messy politics of this world into an idealized world of art. However, after a recent experience attending an anti-Israel demonstration conducted by Students […]
