Minimize harm, protest safely

May 20, 2020

While Americans have every right to defend their first amendment rights, those protesting during a pandemic are doing so in an unsafe and detrimental way.  If you decide to protest, be smart. Don’t attack law enforcement: wear a mask, keep science in mind and understand that guidelines have ...

China should let journalists back

Spencer Batute, @batutie_

March 21, 2020

We at the Los Medanos College Experience condemn the recent expulsion of American journalists from reporting in mainland China. During this trying time of pandemic, a tit-for-tat war, which encroaches on the free and open flow of information, is harmful to societies around the world. Press freedo...

The Brown Act is essential

November 22, 2019

Paying a stipend to student government members who do hours of extra work to ensure the best representation for Los Medanos College is not a bad thing. It was not wrong for the Associated Students of LMC to try to allocate themselves stipends last month, as stipends have been implemented b...

We need gun control now

Krys Shahin, @Krysshah

November 14, 2019

With the most recent school shooting in America being Nov. 14 at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, we need to take action against guns now. A 15-year-old should not be able to get a weapon and take the lives of their peers. California is the state with the most strict gun laws, but clearly, we are n...

Registration for Spring 2017 classes began for many students this week. As is usual for this process, classes fill up or aren’t offered on certain days of the week, which can create problems for students. These problems usually work themselves out. But what’s the deal with all the online classes bei...

Los Medanos College has made the leap from learning management system Desire2Learn to Canvas… well, almost. This is the transitional year, so while some students have made the change to the newer platform, there are still students and instructors using D2L. Students will have access to the older system...

Bad year for acceptance

August 25, 2016

2016 is the most tolerant, inclusive year in the history of the United States. 2016 has also seen craven attempts by several states to roll back the voting rights of minorities, a riot in Milwaukee — one of the most segregated cities in America — in response to yet another killing by police, the...

Sexual assault on campus

Staff, kstelly@lmcexperience.com

March 10, 2016

The recent sexual assault on Los Medanos College that took place in the second floor restroom of the college complex last Thursday has students on edge. No one wants to be made to feel unsafe at school but it seems that there has been a lot of finger-pointing – everyone’s looking for a scapegoat...
