“Great day to be a Bruin!!! By removing this type of label, students can now focus on their academic endeavors instead of worrying about labels.”

“students can now focus on their academic endeavors instead of worrying about labels.

Seriously, that's funny when you think about it.”

“IMHO those students who are offended by the term "illegal immigrant" because they are infact that term, should not be allowed to attend U.S. colleges... therefore, I couldn't care less if their feelings are hurt. Call a spade a spade. They are illegals. They are breaking the laws of this country, and are milking the system. They should be deported and forced to wait in line like all LEGAL immigrants!”

“Just because some weak minded PC, individuals decided to stop using a certain term doesn't change the fact that term still doesn't apply. They're still illegal immigrants no matter what you say.”

“The students were distracted from their academic endeavors by the pastime of being racists? Or feeling victimized by a perfectly acceptable term? Either racists or stupid, at that rate, either way not sounding like great future academic material.”

“I've had terrible experiences with online courses though, usually it dehumanizes much of the process and as for really getting to know your professors and having a life, online courses would hamper parts of the experience that are essential. As for students who party the night before, and those who care less, make 'em feel bad, and try not to let it affect your work. That's what I try. ”

“Getting a graduate degree involves teaching, usually those first-year college classes. It's part of how they train and learn to become professors, they may not have degrees but they're working on them, and in some instances are going through similar scenarios to their undergraduates, and can be more sympathetic. Depends on the school and the academic environment, department, etc.”

“It's a good argument for online courses, though. It can be distracting with so many people in class...........especially when so many where partying the night before and could care less about learning anything.”

“If creationists feel the need to present the dressed up "intelligent design" theory in PUBLIC schools, it seems only fair that scientists without ties to creationist ideology should be able to teach evolution in every church's Bible class in Texas.”

“I feel like some of the problem with teachers stems from the fact that the younger students have teachers who aren't experts on what they are teaching or haven't studied the plethora of subjects they need to teach to an extensive degree. I do think requiring specialization for even elementary school teachers (making them closer to high school teachers) may enhance the experience for students making them better prepared for what they want to pursue in life.”

“If you're looking for a really nice library, nothing quite compares to the main reading room at Powell Library on the UCLA Campus. It's got just an incredible ceiling!”

“In addition to being a beautiful building and a wonderful library, the acoustics in the center of Powell Library are superb for Renaissance music concerts.”

“Having more time in the classroom is not the answer, however more time on larger projects instead of studying for test-taking is. If students were exposed to more reading and writing that could challenge and engage them there would be fewer problems. And I think the subject matter needs to be diversified for younger students, just teaching math and language arts isn't enough, history, art, other humanities and sciences should be included too.”
