Keep our campus clean

Madeline Henderson

Well, summer is over once again and it is time to get back to the books and learning.

In a way, I am kind of glad to get back to school, because by the time the month of August rolled around I was getting bored sitting at home.

There are many new High School graduates who are enjoying being in college.

You can tell they are from High School by the way they act like college is a new world, compared to where they have been for the past 12 years. I think it is sweet that they feel this way about college.

I do hope they well remember to not litter our school grounds so we can have a clean campus and restrooms.

That not only goes for them but for all of the students at LMC.

The janitors and maintenance people work hard to keep the college clean, so we can do our part in supporting them by not throwing papers, candy wrappers and most of all, spitting that nasty mucus all over the campus.

It is a nasty thing to step into someone’s spit on the campus grounds.

So come on students, let’s work together to keep our campus clean so we may have a beautiful college to come and learn.

By the way, college clubs have been putting up flyers in order to reach members.

So take the time and read the bulletin board for the different clubs on campus and get involved.

The Rhythm of the World dance club members were out dancing in the third floor Quad.

So if you like Hip-Hop or Break dancing talk with their members to find out how you can get involved.

I know that time doesn’t slow down, so before I look even up, December will be here and school will be out until the spring semester.

I enjoy going to school and I am glad I decided to return to college and achieve the goal I started back in 1978, at Laney College.

I had a desire to write but I did not know what direction to begin in starting my career.

A friend suggested that I get involved with the journalism class at Laney in Oakland.

I thought it would be a good idea too, so I registered with Laney College. I really enjoyed that class, as well as the broadcast journalism course, which worked with cameras.

I was able to attend there for three years and then I quit to go to work and raise my children.

I was so thankful for the opportunity to come my way again, back in 2010 at LMC.

Always remember in your life when opportunity knocks at your door, do not ignore it because you will never know what road to go down.

Take a chance, for this may be the road to your happiness in life.
