One last stretch. Instead of calling it one last week before finals, I’m calling it the final stretch of this semester.  For everybody at this university, whether they are faculty, BSWs, students, RAs, advisers, etc., we see one thing in our minds. That thing is the finish line to the semester. ...

Keep Christmas traditions alive

Katelyn Eddington

December 5, 2019

When I was little I used to think nothing could touch or harm the people I loved the most.  Well, then I grew up and life got a little complicated. Christmas time used to be the best time of year.  My Grandma Donna made it so magical by decorating the house from the roof to the ground. Ever...

Staff Editorial

December 5, 2019

It is usually exciting to find out that your school is closed for a snow day.  Students anticipate being able to sleep in, having an extra day to get their homework done or just being able to lay around the house and be lazy. This is how a normal snow day usually is, but now schools have come ...

Value advice, wisdom from ‘old’ friends

Zoë Donovan, Staff Reporter

December 4, 2019

I spent part of my Thanksgiving Break sitting in on a sociology class at my previous college, with the main intention of heckling a previous instructor after he had finished the lesson, and of course just to say hi.  Earlier in the day I visited other instructors I had at Lake Land.  The next day I ha...

Finals are upon us.  For some of us, this week has been full of struggle and stress and big papers, projects, and presentations. Some of us have been studying tirelessly as a preventive measure to not have to stress later. That’s the smart, right activity to do. Meanwhile, some of us are stressing...

Corryn Brock

December 3, 2019

With only a small number of this nation’s former leaders being hotties, there are a number of less than attractive U.S. presidents.  Based off their official presidential portraits there are only a handful of cuties that served as our nation’s president and a ton of presidents I would not bring ...

Top 5 hottest U.S. Presidents

Adam Tumino

December 3, 2019

Of the 45 U.S. Presidents that grace the back of history books across our great nation, not very many have been lookers. Many took office as older men, and the stresses of political careers probably aged them prematurely. But some were still what we would call “conventionally attractive,” and...

Conversations about re-implanting ectopic pregnancies into women’s uteruses are drawing nervous laughter, skepticism, anger and confusion, and we at The Daily Eastern News, as we can imagine other people are feeling the same, are left scratching our heads in bewilderment that this is still something state ...

Dillan Schorfheide, Sports Editor

December 2, 2019

The internet meme “Florida Man” gave everyone some good laughs when it became popular a little while ago to search Florida man in Google with your birth date. Because of the many, wacky things people in Florida seem to do, especially those that are crimes, it gives way for some good humor and f...
