Libraries are overlooked and underrated

Mercury Bowen, Entertainment Reporter

Filed under Columns, Opinions

In a world of technology and digitization, it is easy to think of libraries as nothing more than old buildings full of dusty books and an old woman behind a desk shushing people. This could not be further from the truth. Many people today also believe that libraries are a thing of the past and...

The latest installment of the Black Ops series was promised to be the most in-depth, user-friendly game in the Call of Duty series. Every facet of the game, from multiplayer to zombies to the battle royale (if you did not know, there is no campaign), is supposed to be innovative and customizable. So...

Homecoming weekend is over.  We won our homecoming football game, we partied hard and we got all of our homework done (hopefully).  Throughout this weekend, we at The Daily Eastern News noticed a problem: Eastern students celebrating homecoming do not like to clean up after themselves.  The w...

Climate change, corporations and evangelicals

Last year, I discovered the joy of writing for a student-run newspaper. Columns specifically, I didn’t have the stones to be a reporter in this climate. But I enjoyed how everyone’s hard work made the DEN happen, and writing about our dangerous political climate was a way for me to make sense of...

Prioritize your life during college years

Karena Ozier, Columnist

Filed under Columns, Opinions

When I was in high school, I never really understood why people got so excited when I told them I was going to college. They would tell me that I wasn’t going to be prepared for what a difference college was. They said, “college is hard but it’s the best time of your life.” I admired their thoughtfulness,...

Indulging in anger is unhealthy

Filed under Editorials, Opinions

For some reason, we as human beings like to be mad. It is an annoying feeling; yet, we love to indulge in behaviors that anger us. Whether it’s saying (or even thinking) of a sly comeback to someone, fuming over your roommate who never takes out the trash or gossiping with your friends about...

Support, don’t shame college students

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

Filed under Columns, Opinions

If there is anything in the whirlwind of college that disappoints me most, it is major-shaming. Too often I witness or overhear college students judge their fellow college students for what area of study they have chosen to pursue. Major-shaming comes in a variety of forms—some are more obvious than others. One of ...

As staff members of The Daily Eastern News, we stand with and support the LGBTQA+ community. There are several people in the world today who still do not support people of this community, whether it be due to their religious beliefs and/or personal beliefs. We, however, do not fall into that category of...

Studying in college is very important, so it’s important to find a nice space for you to study. Some people are able to study in their bedrooms just fine, but for others, they need to get out of their room and be in a different space. Some people like studying at the library because there are a ...

Research other cultures; understand them

Currently I am taking an English class here at Eastern as an elective for one of my minors, and the class emphasizes the difference between western individualism and eastern collectivism.

Stay healthy this fall; get your flu shot

October 16, 2018


Filed under Editorials

Well as the old cliché goes: it’s that time of year again. A time for hot chocolate, cute fall wardrobes, big wool hats that swallow our heads and, of course, a time for skyrocketing medicine sales. Yes, that’s right, it’s the time of the year where most of us start to feel like walking petri dish...
