Guest Column: Silence is the Enemy

    llustration by Christina Morrow

Dear Graduates:

As we close out this year and we see our graduates move on to the future, it is important to remind ourselves of the power we have in each of us. Some might say we find ourselves in concerning times. This author would say that we find ourselves in times of certain uncertainty. However, we have the power to change our future, our country and our world. Our graduates go forward into this world, and they are armed! –armed with knowledge, with a voice, with a degree and with the opportunity to declare, resoundingly, that Silence is the Enemy.

Often we have been silenced. Not all of us grew up in a place where our opinions were truly valued or accepted. Even now we have been told (as we rally to causes we believe in) that we should just hush, be quiet and enjoy what we have. This author has watched the world change, and that world is saying “No More!” to injustice. “No More!” to being silent. “No More!” to being unheard!

Never has our world and our society had an opportunity to be so proud of a generation. All the generations prior to this should be ecstatic that we have found our voice and we are using it to speak up and speak out. Whether it be in defense of liberty, defense of another or defense of ourselves we have spoken out and screamed at the world “Silence! Is! The! Enemy!” and no one can stop you.

So, as you move forward into this world armed with everything you have available, do not forget your voice. Hold tight to your beliefs, your morals and your values. Be flexible yet unstoppable. Listen, speak and be open to defending what you know to be right. There are and will always be those we disagree with. Still, be inclusive not exclusive, be young but not ignorant and most importantly be amazing and awed by the chances we have. Silence is the Enemy.

    Freddy Gompf likes “An Idiot Abroad.” Alicia Graves / The Mainstream

Guest editor: Charles Crosier

As summer approaches we all are going to have at least a little more free time compared to fall, winter and spring. Now, we might want to get something done but let’s be honest with ourselves; we’re going to find ourselves in front of the TV at some point and it can be difficult to decide on something to watch. Here are some suggestions from those on campus to binge watch your hot summer days and nights away!

Freddy Gompf is going to be watching “An Idiot Abroad” on Netflix this summer to help pass the time.

Sam Murray will be catching up on “Rick and Morty” as well as “Gotham”; these are two certainly solid shows with very different plots

Renee Thompson will be watching “Master of None” as well as “BoJack Horseman” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” for a nice round mix of all things fun.

Jantyne Bunce will be doing the superhero rounds with “Arrow” and “Flash” and also binging “The Office” and “Parks and Rec”. Last but certainly not least, she’ll be watching the loveable, yet bad at his job as a spy, “Archer”.

What will you be watching? Do you have any favorites on this list?

This author will be finishing “Game of Thrones” as well as “Sherlock” for the more serious and, quite frankly, heartbreaking shows that they are. Finally, if you’re looking for something more light hearted yet truly hilarious then perhaps check out “Milo Murphy’s Law” on Disney XD for a solid laugh and fun characters with a well-built premise.

Several Mainstream staff say goodbye after award-winning year of general excellence

Casey Conemac / The Mainstream

Kaya Maliglig

As the term comes to an end, I am prepared to graduate and ready to leave UCC. But before I do, I would like to say thank you to all those who supported and helped me during my time here these last two years.

Thank you to The Mainstream who gave me a home away from home and a family apart from my immediate family. The time I’ve spent here has been extremely valuable to me, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have been a part of a group of talented and ambitious students.

Last spring when Melinda asked me if I would be interested in joining The Mainstream, I didn’t know what to expect, but I am glad I said yes. Had I not, I don’t know who I would be right now.

I’ve grown in many ways from the experience that I have gained from this wonderful student newspaper. One of which is that even if you have no experience doing something, just try it, because you can’t learn everything from just being in a classroom.

You have to get out and apply what you know and can do. You’ll learn the rest as you go.

Another thing I’ve learned is that we all are responsible for seeking and telling the truth. Don’t always accept what you are given. Along with these two lessons, I’ve learned how to work in a team and contribute my part to that team.

So, again, thank you Mainstream. Thank you to Melinda and Alicia for your guidance and support throughout this last year.

I will always hold onto the memories and lessons that The Mainstream has given me.

Kaya Maliglig is planning on attending OSU and majoring in biology and minoring in film studies.

Working for The Mainstream has been the best decision of my life. I have learned so much about myself and how to put my skills to use to create a physical manifestation of everyone’s hard work.

The Mainstream is like a second family and I will miss it dearly.

“Goodbye, and thanks for all the fish.”


Christina Morrow was the Outstanding Student in Journalism: Graphic Design for the 2016-17 school year.

Christina will be doing freelance art, design and illustration after graduation.



Trick Schneider
Casey Conemac / The Mainstream

Trick Schneider

Attending UCC changed my life. I began attending UCC as someone who was looking for a new direction. Looking for a true purpose in life.

Over the time I have been here, I had several professors and employees whose work here at UCC enriched my life. Many of the courses I have taken and the guidance I received helped me self-actualize.

To all my professors, the administrators and staff who helped me, I cannot thank you enough. I will go on to make you proud. I will apply the education and training you gave me to better our community and give back to society.


Trick has been hired as program director for KQUA and will be developing programs for broadcast.


Editor’s Note:

We offer our congratulations to those moving on from The Mainstream staff to their graduation, and we look forward to seeing their accomplishments in the future. It has been a privilege working with these talented individuals throughout the months. May this ending only be the beginning of their continued journey.

A group of students in Dustin Cosby’s Small Group Discussion class are putting together a banquet in efforts to show appreciation to our staff and faculty of UCC. These students go by the name of “Group A.”

This group is also composed of ASUCC students and Veteran’s Club members.

The students, for their class project, decided to give back to our UCC staff and faculty by providing them with a banquet that will be served by UCC students.  The group has petitioned $7,000 from ASUCC in order to pay for this event. We would like to invite you (student body) to be part of this project and help us serve those who have helped us be successful.

The banquet will be held June 1 in the cafeteria (located in the student center) from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

If you would like to help serve or give a small speech at this banquet, please contact Ali Lape at

Events Coming up:

Spring Fling will be held June 9, and ASUCC is looking for students to help. If you would like to volunteer, contact Pricila Lopez at


Ballots will be coming soon for ASUCC elections.

Student Commencement Speaker:

Also, a panel of student judges is needed to vote on a student speaker for commencement. If you want to be part of this panel, please contact Ali Lape at

Women march into the month of March celebrating women’s history

in Campus Life by
  • KayaIllustration_grayscale_transparent-slider.jpg?fit=500%2C500
    Illustration by Christina Morrow

The contributions of women historically, politically, societally and culturally are honored around the world on March 8. From March 1 through March 31, the celebration of women continues with remembering the past and looking at the present and future women who stand for a purpose greater than themselves.

The celebration began in the early 1900s when the first International Women’s Day was held on March 8. During the late 1970s, the school district of Sonoma, California introduced a celebration highlighting women and their achievements. President Jimmy Carter would eventually make the week of March 8 National Women’s Week in the following decade; however, the celebration didn’t end there. March was declared Women’s National History Month after Congress decided to expand the observance in 1986.

“I feel proud to be a woman in today’s society because of the women who have altered the course of history for women today,” Haylie Ellison, journalism student, said.

Although women have made advances towards equality to men, they still face big obstacles.

According to, “To coincide with Women’s History Month 2011, the White House issued a 50-year progress report on the status of women in the United States. It found that younger women are now more likely than their male counterparts to hold a college degree and that the number of men and women in the labor force has nearly equalized.”

Early this year, The Hill stated that “the new Congress set to take office in January is slated to be the most racially diverse in history.” However, women are still majorly underrepresented, consisting of only 19 percent in Congress yet making up 50.6 percent of America’s population as reported by Country Meters.

“I’m proud to be a woman, but I still think there are a lot of things to be done for women until they are truly an equal and celebrated part of society,” Karlee Paxton, elementary education student, said.

Wherever the current status of women’s equality stands, females can still be hopeful for the future.

According to Janell Fetterolf from Pew Research Center, “In a 2015 survey of 38 nations, majorities in all but one country (Burkina Faso) said it is somewhat or very important that women have the same rights as men in their society. And a median of 65% worldwide said these equal rights are very important.”

The holiday is most popularly celebrated with demonstrations, educational initiatives, customs and simple gifts of flowers.

A Day without a Woman and the International Women’s Strike are two efforts being made by women around the world. “The strike is planned and organized by women in more than 50 countries to promote issues facing women who are marginalized. Among them: gender violence, reproductive freedom, labor rights, environmental protections,” USA Today published.

On UCC’s campus, Women of the World will be performing on March 13 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Jacoby Auditorium. This performance includes original and folk music from around the world in almost 30 different languages. The Umpqua Symphony Association has organized the event. For information regarding ticket prices and more, contact (541) 236-2566.


Meet the current officers

in Campus Life by

Associated Students of UCC

(ASUCC) is a student leadership body made up of five elected students and as many as five senators. Currently, there four student officers and two senators in office for the 2016/17 school year.

The current president of ASUCC is Alexandra (Ali) Lape. Lape has a busy life. She is a student, midwife, volunteer firefighter and mother. Lape serves on many campus committees as a voice for students, and is dual-enrolled at OSU.

ASUCC vice president is Kristapher Yates. In 2014/15, Yates served as ASUCC president. He is also a dual-enrolled student at OIT, working towards a degree in Operations Management with a minor in Psychology.

Alicia Jones is the business manager for ASUCC. Jones has also served in student leadership in the past, having held the business manager position in 2016; Jones is dual-enrolled at Oregon State University and Umpqua Community College. Jones has continued to study at UCC based solely on the fact that she was not ready to leave UCC behind.

Public relations are handled by Patrick Schneider. Schneider recently completed the AAS Business Marketing degree program and is working towards completing a number of certificates before graduation. He has an extensive background in media and marketing working for radio. Schneider also wrote for The Mainstream student newspaper in 2016.

The senators currently serving in ASUCC are Geruen Erandro and Josiah Kelly.
