Three finalists for the top administrative job at Glendale Community College spoke of transparency, trust and compassion during a public forum Thursday where each put forth their vision for the campus. Born and raised in Mauritius, a small island off the southern coast of Africa, Rajen Vurdien is president of Fullerton College, a post he has held since 2010. Previously, he was a vice president at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo for six years. "I see the Glendale position as an opportunity for me to grow and serve the students in a different capacity," he said, explaining why he wants to be the school's next supt./president.

There doesn't figure to be much experience up and down the Glendale Community College men's basketball team roster. As far as Glendale college Coach Brian Beauchemin is concerned, it's not the worst position for the Vaqueros to be in. If anything, Beauchemin is eager to see how most of the 15-member squad - with just three returners - will respond to adapting to the more physical style presented at the collegiate level. “We have a lot of new faces and that's fine,” said Beauchemin, whose team will tip off its season at 3 p.m. Friday against visiting Compton.

After losing nearly its entire team from last year, the assumption might be the Glendale Community College softball team is lowering expectations from a 2012 when it put together the finest postseason run in program history. That'd be wrong, Vaqueros Coach Dave “Hawk” Wilder said. “State is the goal. We almost did it last year, hopefully we can do it again this year,” he said. “I think the expectations are higher.” Glendale finished with a 30-15 record and qualified for the postseason for the first time in a decade last year after taking second in the Western State Conference's Blue Division with a 12-6 record.

An upright piano installed near the administration building at Glendale Community College last month as part of a three-week performing arts project is slated to become a permanent fixture on campus. The piano was one of 30 placed at public sites around Los Angeles County by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra to celebrate 15 years under the leadership of music director and pianist Jeffrey Kahane. “One of the best parts of having the piano outside on campus is to see students with no other access to musical instruments just playing with it and having fun,” said Peter Green, chairman of the visual and performing arts division at Glendale Community College.

SAN BERNARDINO - In a contest littered with big plays on offense and defense, special teams was the downfall of the Glendale Community College football team Saturday evening. The Vaqueros had two field goals blocked, missed two extra points, while a botched punt led to another score as a close game turned into a blowout and a 45-18 win for San Bernardino Valley College at Wolverines Stadium in a game that lasted 3 hours and 37 minutes. The defeat stopped Glendale's attempt to win consecutive games for the first time since 2009.

An equipment malfunction at Glendale Community College on Tuesday night caused a second power outage in as many weeks, forcing officials to close the campus into Wednesday. College spokeswoman Wendy Grove said the power failure was likely related to the same equipment. There were no students on campus Wednesday morning. “They haven't let anybody on,” she said. Interim Supt. Jim Riggs met with officials Wednesday morning and said a crew was addressing the problem. More information would be available later in the morning, he said.
