The longtime campus newspaper at UC Irvine may be forced to cease printing in the next year if students fail to approved a quarterly fee to help sustain the weekly publication. Like newspapers across the country, rising printing costs have forced UCI's weekly New University to cut back, according to the paper's student editor. Once a robust 60-page newspaper, the paper has shrunk to 24 pages in the last six years and editors  have had their compensation chopped in half, now earning between $24 and $50 a week.

Reaction was broad and swift Thursday to the announcement by UC president Janet Napolitano that she would allocate $5 million in university funds to help the system's estimated 900 students who entered the country illegally.   The issue of how to treat those who don't have proper immigration papers is a hot one for Napolitano. Critics contend that, in her previous job as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, she oversaw an increase in deportations and they have protested her selection as UC president.

After a four-week delay, the Valley Star student newspaper has returned to Valley College newsstands, and new faculty newspaper advisor Joan Stuller vows that the paper will be distributed at least biweekly, according to her mentor Jack Sterk.

Yale's undergraduate student newspaper Friday chose one alumnus over another in the race for the White House, endorsing Sen. John F. Kerry. The Yale Daily News gave President Bush, class of 1968, good marks for handling the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and their aftermath, but it faulted him for his Iraq war policy and handling of domestic issues. Kerry, the Democratic challenger, who graduated from Yale in 1966, has his faults, the newspaper's editorial acknowledged.

A planned speech by New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly at Brown University in Providence had to be canceled Tuesday after hecklers shouted down the top cop during his remarks. Kelly, commissioner since 2002, had intended to speak about the department's "proactive policing" in New York City, which -- with policies like stop-and-frisk -- has brought criticism from the African American community and a federal court ruling in August that the department's policies were unconstitutional.

Alcohol may have been a contributing factor in the death of a USC student who was found lifeless over the weekend in his off-campus apartment, a law enforcement official said. A final determination on how 22-year-old Thu Yain "Roy" Kyaw died is still pending, but the revelation comes as the university is struggling to control alcohol-related incidents. This month, campus officials placed the fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon on probation after a female student visiting from Loyola Marymount University fell while dancing on a table and hurt her head and neck, according to USC officials and safety reports.

Well, that's one way to get into an Ivy League school. According to an email survey of more than 1,300 incoming Harvard students, the Harvard Crimson reports , 10% of the campus' new freshman class have cheated on tests and 42% have cheated on homework. That's probably going to be unwelcome news for the 377-year-old university, which is still recovering from a 2012 scandal in which more than 100 students were accused of cheating on a take-home exam for an introductory-level class on Congress.

The UCI campus newspaper will stay in print after students agreed to charge themselves a fee to keep the presses rolling. Staffers at the New University student newspaper had campaigned for a 99-cents-per-quarter fee to finance the printing operation, warning that the longtime student paper could fold in a year otherwise. In balloting last month, more than 72% of student voters approved the fee, which amounts to about $3 a year per student. "I definitely was glad to see that there's more support for us than I thought," said Jessica Pratt, the newspaper's student editor.

SALT LAKE CITY - When the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently reduced the age requirement for missionaries by one year for men, to 18, and by two years for women, to 19, the number of women applying to serve jumped five-fold. At the same time, the church reaffirmed that women would serve just 18 months, compared with two years for men. That rule, combined with the one-year difference in age requirements, touched off a new round of questions from Mormon feminists about how much progress women in the church are actually making.

A controversy on the UC Irvine campus in recent days between the student newspaper and student government has highlighted a little-known fact: The state's open-meetings law does not apply to most of the University of California. The open-meetings law generally covers all agencies spending public money. The law says meetings of such agencies must be open to the public, whose money is being spent. But the powerful University of California is an exception to the rule.

It's a difficult admission, one that would trouble my poor mother if she were still alive. But on occasion, I can be critical here. I remember my mom once telling me, "If you can't find anything nice to write about someone, then go do a boxing, tennis or horse-racing column so no one will read it. " Obviously, that brings me to the mother of all challenges: Monday's assignment to write about UCLA after the Bruins were clobbered, 43-17, by...
