People-of-Color-Blindness: A Lecture by Jared Sexton (by UCBerkeleyEvents)
SOOO ELOQUENT! SO CRITICAL! I LOVE IT!! I wish I took one of his courses when I was still at UCI.
I wish to be this eloquent, critical, intelligent, and thought provoking during my journey in graduate school, when ever that will be. :D Aspiring to better my self.
SOOOOOO ADORABLE!! It’s like Peter the Anteater and his mom!!
My journey to leadership, activism, grass root organizing, and community involvement all started here.
Circa June 2009. Kababayan End of The Year Banquet.
The day I chose to think about the bigger picture. The day I was given the opportunity to serve and give back to my kommunity.

3 years worth of hard work and sleepless night all for this piece of paper. Good thing I got educated rather than being schooled. In the words of Dr. Cornel West, “Paideia — “deep education” — requires the courage to think critically.”
I’m really enjoying my visit to Irvine this week. All I do is eat and catch up with people. I got some great advice about Student Affairs and job hunting, etc from professionals :] Looking forward to more great things this week.
It’s gonna be like this…
11AM Aldrich Hall Thursday until forever!
REMIND ADMINISTRATORS and fellow students on Ring Road what this PUBLIC UNIVERSITY is for: LEARNING & TEACHING!
Bring your notebooks, your textbooks, your laptops and bluebooks. Bring lawn chairs, tables, couches, blankets, coolers, picnics, and anything you need to WORK COMFORTABLY and DEMONSTRABLY! Bring some snacks to share too! Sharing is caring :]!
Between 2000 and 2011 TUITION has NEARLY TRIPLED. STUDENT LOAN DEBT is up 500% since 2000 to $830 BILLION nationally. In the last four years California SCHOOL FUNDING has been CUT by 23%.
WHERE IS THAT MONEY GOING?
Not to students. UC administrators LAY-OFF PROFESSORS, INCREASING CLASS SIZES and making MORE WORK for LOW-WAGE TAs and contract faculty.
UC Regents keep increasing the number of managers and executives, and their salaries. In fact, ON MONDAY the REGENTS VOTED TO INCREASE the SALARY of 10 ADMINISTRATORS AND MANAGERS, including MEREDITH MICHAELS, VICE CHANCELLOR of PLANNING and BUDGET at UC IRVINE who will now be paid 9.9% MORE, $247, 275.!!!
For two afternoons, Thursday Dec. 1, 11am til dark and Friday Dec. 2, 11am til whenever, WE WILL WORK in FULL VIEW of the administration, right outside Michaels’ office and others.’
We WELCOME ALL STUDIERS and GRADERS!!!
SHAME ON THE REGENTS FOR IRRESPONSIBLE DECISION MAKING. WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU GOING TO INCREASE AN EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATOR’S SALARY WHEN EVERYONE ELSE IN THE SYSTEM GOT THEIR SALARY CUT AND THE STUDENT BODY IS PAYING MORE THAN EVER.
How am I affected?
Even with financial aid, I will be graduating from my undergrad with a negative net worth, at least $15,000.00 in student loan debt. Half of my current classes are with over 250 students. Sometimes I wonder if my education will be an advantage or a drawback. I worry about my future and question whether I will be able to go to law school. I will join the fight because I have hope. I am a Student. I am UCI.
Protect Public Education!
