Listeners tuning in to KCSN's new HD2 radio station will notice something once unheard of but increasingly common in American culture: Spanish and English being spoken - and sung - together, almost interchangeably. One day recently, for example, the Cal State Northridge public radio station played "Hypnotized," an erotically chill trip-hop track by the British band Morcheeba, sung in English, with Chile's Ana Tijoux adding a Spanish-language rap. A quarter-hour later, KCSN fired up "Cinco Minutos Con Vos" (Five Minutes With You)

The Bruins are expected to return to Cal State San Bernardino for training camp in August. It will be the third consecutive year that UCLA has trained at the campus. "It has been a great experience out there," Mora said. "Hopefully, we'll get it worked out in the next couple months. " San Bernardino has been Mora's preferred destination because he can isolate the team, allowing unity to ferment.

California State University officials were warned Tuesday that course scheduling decisions on many campuses may be forcing students to take high-cost extension classes to complete their degrees, which would violate state law. A report by the state auditor criticized aspects of the system's two-tier education plan, which provides state-funded courses during the academic year and the same classes at a higher cost typically during winter and...

More black students in California are earning bachelor's degrees than they were a decade ago, but enrollment in the state's public universities is stagnant and many are turning to costly for-profit schools, according to a new report.

With every step he takes, with every dunk he makes, Omar Oraby is growing into a basketball star. USC's 7-foot-2 center played as if he was every inch of that Tuesday in the Trojans' 76-62 win over Cal State Fullerton at the Galen Center. Guard Byron Wesley continued his quiet dominance for USC, wiggling free for layups and leading the Trojans (3-1) with 22 points plus adding eight rebounds, but Oraby stood tall with his six blocked shots, nine rebounds and 15 points. Wesley finally shut down any hopes the Titans (2-2)
