EDITORIAL: More transparency needed on cafeteria issue

City Times Editorial Board

For three years City College students have hungered for a cafeteria due to limited food options. Many spring 2019 graduates will leave without ever setting foot in the City College cafeteria, which had been promised to them as far back as fall 2018.

As the City Times continued to report on the construction of new buildings on campus, the staff received emails from students asking when the cafeteria would open and why they did not see more coverage of the issue.

After months of receiving misinformation, counting down to what turned out to be missed deadlines and fielding rumors that wouldn’t be confirmed, the City Times can finally report the cafeteria will not open until fall 2019.

City College ASG recycling proposal gets canned

District contract with waste removal company prevents ASG recycling idea from moving forward.

By Jonny Rico and David Ahumada

Josh Tanida walks through the campus, looking inside trash cans and recycling bins. But he can’t really tell the difference between them based on the contents inside.

Tanida, a San Diego City College student and Health, Safety and Environmental Officer of the Associated Student Government, picks out recyclable items like soda cans and bottles and brings them back to the ASG office in the M-building.

He’s hoping to get others involved in recycling by implementing a formal program on campus, but he has run into resistance from the San Diego Community College District. 

“All the blue trash cans out there are full with mixed garbage,” Tanida said. “We want to implement a segregated recycling system. You just can’t put all recycling in one bin.

“We want to educate people on what recycling is and how to do it properly.”
