WHO ARE WE?

March 2, 2017 9:38 AM

What kind of school should Laney College be? In 1953, a humble high school campus in the heart of the East Bay became the site of Oakland City College—soon to be known as Laney College. Since then, Laney’s students have diligently reported on their school and community. Their news stories document the fundamental changes we’ve gone through over the years. Examine our cover and you’ll see a collage of these stories. Put them beside the stories in this issue, and you’ll see how the decisions Laney’s students, faculty, and its administration make define our school. This country faces a pivotal […]

Food Fight

Battle for solvency forces cafeteria to open despite concerns over health and safety On Sept. 7, the Laney College Cafeteria opened for business, serving up breakfast from the hot line steam tables to students and faculty for the first time in months. The cafeteria as a whole, including the steam tables, had been shut down in August for failing county health inspections. But by 4 p.m. on Sept. 8, the Alameda County Department of Environmental Health had stepped in to shut down the steam tables once again. The department officially ruled that the steam tables were hazardous: they were malfunctioning […]

ELEVEN IS ENOUGH

A Laney Tower analysis: District hires three new interim vice chancellors while leaving critical positions unfilled On Flex Day the Peralta community learned that Chancellor Jowel Laguerre had appointed five more vice chancellors over the summer recess. He termed these latest appointments part of the “New Peralta Way.” His announcement caused dismay among Peralta staff and faculty. They question whether the colleges should be run top-down from the District, or whether there should be a more democratic process with open discussion of problems at the colleges before decisions are made. THE BIG TEN The Peralta District now has ten vice […]

Letters to the editor – Laney should not be up for sale

May 19, 2016 1:23 PM

This is a topic that should not even be up for discussion. There are a countless number of individuals who depend on Laney to further their academic endeavors. Community Colleges were made for students who couldn’t initially afford to attend a 4 year college. Students would attend a CC to receive an Associate’s Degree then transfer to a 4 year college for a Bachelor’s Degree. Laney has been standing solid since 1953 and is the eldest of the Peralta Community Colleges. It’s in a beneficial location for most of its students to get to since it’s right by Bart and […]

Anderson in Super Bowl — again

Anderson in Super Bowl — again

Former Laney College running back stars for Broncos Maybe the second time will be a charm for Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson. Two years ago, Anderson was forced to navigate a sea of college navy, action green and wolf gray confetti on the field at East Rutherford, N.J., after his Broncos suffered through a 43-8 decimation at hands of the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. Now the former Laney College running back gets another chance at a Super Bowl ring, and those chances don’t come around very often. For those of you who just returned from North Korea, […]

KQED visits Laney to hear pitches for new show

November 13, 2015 1:20 PM

Laney College hosted the KQED Newsroom forum on Nov. 4, inviting a community of students and educators to pitch stories for the new KQED East Bay Desk. The stories were pitched to the East Bay desk, led by Holly Kernan, executive editor, who hopes to incorporate them into the program. The East Bay Desk is comprised of new reporters, Devin Katayama and Sandya Dirksas. Kernan refers to the new reporters as the “dynamic duo,” as well as, Joshua Johnson, coordinating the on-air program called “So Well Spoken,” which consists of candid conversations on race and identity. The radio station (KQED-FM) […]

The women’s restrooms on the upper level of the G building are frequently short on toilet paper and one stall is even missing the dispenser. Those using the restroom should be careful and check for paper first before going to the bathroom. In the same restroom some of the stall doors do not lock or close properly, creating privacy issues. The small number of usable stalls results in lines and unnecessary waits. The Tower will continue to investigate. For inquiries or tips contact Tower Editor in Chief Olivia Morgan at laneytower@peralta.edu

Letters to the Editor

Laney is falling apart Editor—The Laney campus has the potential to be a wonderful school. But due to a lack of initiative by the Peralta system, certain aggravating issues have arisen without any fix in sight. Among the chief concerns for the average student are disabled code blue phones, which should be available in case of emergency. It would be unwise to put off repairs for these phones. The Peralta District needs to realize that it must spend a dime today to save a dollar tomorrow. The code blue phones are just one issue with the Laney campus that students […]

A house that Laney students built

Carpentry department rebuilds homes The Carpentry Department at Laney College has been working with the City of Oakland on a project to rebuild a house on 453 98th Ave. by the end of 2015. The Carpentry Department has a long history with the City of Oakland and has worked with them to refurbish many houses, which will be sold to low to moderate income families. Currently the department is working on rebuilding a burnt out crack house that was damaged in a fire. Although the department has previously rebuilt many house, this particular house they are currently working on is […]

Loose electrical wires in room E202A are proving to be a hazard. Some of the wires, once part of a language lab that has since been removed, are piled near the font of the room, while others are tangled with the desk legs. Students and teachers risk tripping on the thick wires and possibly injuring themselves. Though they no longer serve any purpose, the wires have yet to be removed. The Tower will continue to investigate. For inquires or tips contact Tower Editor in Chief Olivia Moragn at laneytower@peralta.edu

Campus infastructure found lacking

Campus infastructure found lacking

(No wonder the cover photo for Laney College’s Yelp page features an overflowing toilet.) Ronnie Yuen and I walked around Laney College campus with notepads and really clean hands. Yuen is an active Laney student who voiced concern to me about air quality (at the gardens in particular) and restrooms on campus. (I am an ASLC senator.) Together for three hours we attempted to document the state of four pieces of campus infrastructure: water fountains, restrooms, handicap accessibility, and fire safety equipment. Along the way a number of additional problems presented themselves beyond the four parts of infrastructure we set […]

Messy bathrooms Editor—What’s up with these bathrooms? Why is it that we are all adults and that there is toilet tissue all over the place? Our college bathrooms look like a grade schools restroom. That is horrible. Don’t we have janitors that are getting paid to clean up? Why aren’t they doing their job? I get disgusted every time I enter these bathrooms. When I walk in a restroom I shouldn’t feel like I need to vomit. I shouldn’t see balled up tissue paper all over the floor, with what seems to be human feces, or urine. That makes me […]
