Weekly Poll
Do you think the Carrizo Plain should stay a national monument?

Absolutely. The Carrizo is one of the last undeveloped areas of the San Joaquin Valley, a protected habitat for endangered species, and a natural wonder for the public.
Yes, but I don't think it's as clear cut as some think. The Trump Administration should take a look at its status.
The feds should consider reducing the size of the monument.
No. The Carrizo should be privatized. Allow the market to tap into its natural resources.

Student Guide 2015


Intro: Student Guide 2015


As you flip through our annual Student Guide issue and read about why consensual sex is important, SLO’s big no-nos, how you can keep student debt to a hill rather than a mountain, HotHouse and the help it gives to student entrepreneurs with bright ideas , and laundromats around town and what they can do for you, you’ll find New Times staff tips on things to do on the Central Coast.

Find a hike close to town; free, low cost, and DIY resources; a fancy, delicious dinner your parents should pay for; coffee shops that caffeinate, quiet, and feed; the places you can visit outside of SLO city limits; arts and culture to open your mind; and happy hours for alcohol and grub.

Basically: You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers. Maybe.

Actually, there are few guarantees in this life, but we do know how much college students depend on that very important, steamy cup of instant noodles. Drunk on a Friday night without a car and no one to give you a ride to the late night fare that’s almost non-existent in SLO? Can’t wait for the dining hall to open? Want to eat for no other reason than to not be bored? Missed breakfast? Feeling chilly? Heat up some water and fill up that Styrofoam “bowl.”
