Opinion: Enjoy Jimmy G’s Super Bowl path

Dillan Schorfheide, Sports Editor

January 20, 2020

Eastern is in the Super Bowl! Yay, we made it, everyone! We have two weeks to prepare, so everyone needs to be up early every morning to get ready for two weeks of lifting weights, running drills and watching film. As fun and tiring as that sounds, none of us have to actually do that (some Eastern...

Opinion: Learn to love yourself first, not others

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

January 20, 2020

Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves and they are hopeless romantics. Others tend to take a while to fall in love. I happen to be a huge hopeless romantic, and I have always worn my heart on my sleeve. But, it has gotten me into trouble many times. I always seem to meet a guy, fall hard fo...

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ was decent at best

Blake Faith

January 16, 2020

When I was little, my stepfather introduced me to the "Star Wars" films. Since then, I have watched every "Star Wars" movie and have made my own thoughts on each one. So, with "Star Wars VIII" being as bad as it was, I had low to zero expectations for "Star Wars IX" to even be close to decent.  As always, the zero to little expectations pa...

Dear stressed student: You aren’t alone

Katelyn Eddington

January 16, 2020

I had a great break. It was relaxing and fun, and I was so stress-free. I had forgotten how the feeling of being stress-free was.  Then I got back and became a big ball of nervous stress, a ticking time bomb, if you will.  I jumped right back into work, which I love doing, and then I jumped back into classes,...

Opinon: Baby Yoda is literally the bomb.com

Megan Keane, Columnist

January 15, 2020

Baby Yoda is adorable. The world is in a craze over his big ear things and his baby noises. I am among the majority—I have never watched a Star Wars movie, but I have sat down to watch The Mandolarian walk around with the child. He’s, what? Like, a foot tall? If that? It’s heart-wrenchingly cute....

Opinion: This makes you a bad teacher

Zoe Donovan, Reporter

January 15, 2020

I’m not a teaching expert, far from it actually. I’m a student who took an education class at my previous institution, I did a practicum and some minimal student teaching, and realized that it wasn’t something I wanted to do long term, but that class taught me a lot about my previous frustrat...

Column: Gervais’ speech was a relief

Logan Raschke, Managing Editor

January 14, 2020

Ricky Gervais, an English stand-up comedian, hurled some hilarious burns toward every celebrity in attendance during his opening speech at the 77th annual Golden Globes. Within his clever monologue lies a powerful truth about a pompous Hollywood: Celebrities are all just virtue signaling, and to be ho...

Column: Wedge: A true ‘Star Wars’ hero

Adam Tumino, Reporter

January 14, 2020

With last month’s release of “The Rise of Skywalker,” the ninth and final installment of the so-called Star Wars Skywalker Saga, a chapter of popular culture came to a close. The saga introduced us all to dozens of heroes and villains and some of the most iconic characters in film history. But...

‘Joker,’ Phoenix deserve Oscar awards

Dillan Schorfheide

January 13, 2020

Ever since I took a film class here at Eastern over a year ago, I have come to appreciate the finer things in films. Everything from sweeping camera angles to the symbolism behind colors and objects on screen, I have found a new appreciation for the finer details that most people do not notice. Because...

Tips for coming back to school

Karena Ozier

January 13, 2020

Going home for winter break is a great way to de-stress. It is a time where students can relax and catch up on sleep that was lost during exam week.   The bad part about being on winter break, however, is that all good things must come to an end. The end of winter break means the beginning of sec...

Nearing the end of college is hard

Kate Rehwinkel

January 12, 2020

Well, here we go again. It’s time to head back to Eastern for my last semester. I have been dreading going back to school because I just want to be over with it and get on with my life. I know people say this is the best four years of your life and they will go by fast. For me, these four years ha...

I’m working toward being a better student

Andrew Paisley

January 12, 2020

It was nice to have a month-long break from school, but now it's crunch time. I have been under the impression that I would graduate this May, but it seems as though my GPA is a bit low and I may not be able to raise it high enough by May. When I found this out, I was of course disappointed. I gradua...
