Starting Fall 2018, printing pods at the University of New Mexico Main Campus, School of Law and Health Sciences Center will be replaced by WĒPA printing kiosks, bringing with them the end of the student printing credit.

UNM Information Technologies, along with University Libraries, Graduate and Professional Student Association and Associated Students of UNM, made the decision to cut and replace the service.

The University of New Mexico has a number of unique departments, but for 40 years the College of Pharmacy has had a life saving department, the New Mexico Poison and Drug Information Center (NMPDIC).

For 24 hours a day, seven days a week, operators at the NMPDIC receive calls from across New Mexico and provide treatment advice regarding poisonings, drug inquiries and more.

Few issues divide our nation quite as much as immigration. Nearly every period of American history was accompanied by a wave of migrants, traveling from some far off land in search of new opportunities and a greater quality of life.

Whether from China, Ireland or Japan, in each of these periods immigrants have often been the subject of xenophobic acts and legislation.


In early June, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission ("the gay wedding cake case") soaked up most of the Supreme Court decision media limelight, even though (or perhaps because) the court's ruling doesn't really dispose of the major issues in the case.

Queer History Class offered this fall at UNM

During the Fall 2018 semester Professor Luis Campos at the University of New Mexico will be teaching an undergraduate class on queer history. Campos has been teaching the class to undergraduate and graduate students since the Fall 2017 semester.

Column: It's about more than cake

Let’s get one thing straight: I’m gay and I don’t like cake.

This simple pastry, though, has come to symbolize the fight for full and complete LGBTQ equality in recent years.

Just a few days ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of a baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple in Colorado in 2012, with an incredibly vague opinion that does little to help defenders of LGBTQ rights or religious liberties.

Column: Reconciling faith with LGBTQ identity

In early December of last year, I kissed a girl for the first time. It felt, among all the usual things associated with a kiss, as wholly natural as my first kiss with a guy years ago.

I had been dimly aware that I was not straight, but attracted to both sexes since my years in Catholic high school — it wasn’t until college that I consciously acknowledged it. By this time, I felt ready to tell my family, and from there, others. I remember thinking Christmas might be a good time.

Amidst the heat, ABQ celebrates Pride Fest

The smell of sunscreen filled the air from the intersection of Central Avenue and Girard Boulevard to Expo New Mexico as Albuquerque residents were shoulder-to-shoulder for the city’s annual Pride Fest Parade on June 9.

The three day event celebrated its last day as thousands of people lined up along Central Avenue and waved at community organizers, businesses and local politicians in rainbow decorated floats.
