Last month, the state of California passed a bill that requires its colleges to define “yes means yes” when investigating claims of sexual assault. With this bill, the definition of consent requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”

Editor's Notebook: November

A coat. A flower. A ceramic snowman. These items signify the holidays for me. Movies and shopping malls may try to tell us what the holidays are and how they should look, which can distort our focus on what they mean to us.  

Much too often Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Hanukkah are all stereotyped. According to Macy’s department store, everyone has a turkey for Thanksgiving or an ornately decorated coniferous tree standing in their living room during December.

The colonists befriended a community of Wampanoag Indians, who taught them how to plant and cultivate corn.

Respiratory Club Fights for Smoke-Free Campus

A hot button issue at NVCC right now is whether people should be allowed to smoke on campus.
NVCC is currently a smoker-friendly campus, with designated smoking areas behind Technology Hall, on the 2nd Floor Ekstrom garage and on the plaza. There are also rules that prevent people from smoking within a certain distance of the main entryways. These rules seem to be rarely enforced, however, and now students from a number of clubs are speaking out.
