A visit to Santa Cruz by the internationally acclaimed band Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano was covered by local and national media. CBS sent a camera crew to shoot a segment for CBS This Morning.

Roberto Garcia of EAOP was also interviewed about the concert by KSMS TV-Channel 67.
Joseph Bunnett, professor emeritus of chemistry, wrote an editorial in the Santa Cruz County Sentinel about the Narrative Evaluation System, putting the current controversy into a historical perspective.

"Over the Wall" a dance concert staged by choreographer Mel Wong earned the cover of the Good Times when it opened in December. The lengthy story (titled "He Did it His Way") focused not only on this performance by the Mel Wong Dance Company but on Wong's long and fertile career.
