Dang, an activist fighting against sexual abuse and trafficking, was named by the White House as a Champion of Change on Monday along with 14 other Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women for their remarkable professional achievement, leadership skills and commitment to public service.

Clochella music fest rocks Cloyne Court

Clochella held at Cloyne Court this Saturday demonstrated that the local, independent music scene is alive and well at Cal. An all-day event held from noon to 1 a.m., Clochella delivered as a music festival by constantly providing energetic live music throughout the day.

Clochella felt amicable and friendly to both residents and visitors. With two live band stages and a DJ stage, there were enough places to satisfy your dance or mosh-pit urges. And in between sets, you could easily find a place to lie down and rest in Cloyne’s backyard lawn and share a cigarette or drink with a fellow attendee.
