June 6th, 2019

It’s finals week here at Cal State Long Beach, and we’re in the process of adopting a new mascot. I voted for the giraffe, a regal and noble animal with attractive coloring and a long tongue, but it came in dead last behind the pelican. The pelican? Seriously?

By: Kristina Weaver, RPSGT
May 22nd, 2019

Have you ever heard anyone say management is easy? I have been a manager for 10 years now, and I can attest to the immense challenges that come with the job. Most managers do not have any real management training and are frequently asked to lead a team because of their display of confidence in knowledge, ability to delegate and their interactive communication skills.
