By some measures, Southern California College, a small Christian college in Costa Mesa, has been a university for several years. With master's programs in education, religion and family counseling, and independent admissions and financial aid programs for each, the college already had expanded far beyond its liberal arts designation. On Tuesday, administrators announced that the 78-year-old college would become Vanguard University of Southern California as of July.

The longest summer of Esaul Mendoza's life wouldn't have been nearly so long if getting into college was as simple as scoring goals. But Mendoza, who scored a county-high 47 goals last season for Estancia High, found the Vanguard University admissions department tougher to beat than any goalkeeper he faced in high school. With the first class just two days away and the Vanguard soccer season already in progress, Orange County's reigning scoring champion was ready to accept defeat.

There's a movement under way at Vanguard University and Russ Davis, the women's basketball coach, is leading the way. Davis committed to rehabilitating the program four years ago and his dedication has paid off this season. The Lions (9-2) are 12th in the NAIA poll, the highest ranking ever for a Golden State Athletic Conference women's team, and own a 41-game home winning streak.

Protestant Latinos, a growing group of voters who were key supporters of President Bush in 2004, have shifted their backing to Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, driven in large part by anger toward Republican immigration policies, according to a poll released Thursday. Latinos overall represent about 6% of U.S. voters. Protestant Latinos -- about a third of all Latinos -- heavily supported Bush's reelection.

When Southern California College changes its name to Vanguard University of Southern California next July, the 78-year-old Costa Mesa school also will have a new mascot--a lion. "The committee wanted a name that we all would feel good about," Athletic Director Bob Wilson said. Among the other candidates for nicknames were Blaze and Breakers. But Wilson said committee members feared being named after something destructive, such as fire, would offend some and would be too difficult to illustrate.
