College friends are the best friends you’ll ever have

Jessica Stewart, Columnist

May 23, 2019


Filed under Columns

Remember when we all said that we’d keep in touch with our friends from high school? Remember when you thought your high school best friends would be your best friends for life? I remember, and oh how foolish I was. Little did I know that in college I would meet some of the best people I have...

‘Under the Skin’ is an alluring, somber sci-fi experience

Logan Raschke, Editor-in-Chief

May 22, 2019


Filed under Columns

Editor's note: This review contains spoilers. Jonathan Glazer’s alien drama/horror/science fiction film "Under the Skin" grips onto open-minded audiences with its abnormal, often uncomfortable visual and auditory elements. This is a film that’s definitely not for everyone. The makeup of the f...

A ‘Game of Thrones’ review from someone who just started watching

Jessica Stewart, Columnist

May 20, 2019


Filed under Columns

I had never seen an episode of “Game of Thrones” until my dad made me watch three episodes from season five with him a few weeks ago. It was pretty interesting, and I had been wanting to give it a try for a while, so I decided to start watching it myself. A few days ago, I started watching...

Women have the right to get safe abortions

Jessica Stewart, Columnist

May 17, 2019


Filed under Columns

If you’ve been paying attention to the news or social media lately, you’ve probably seen a lot of discussion about abortion. Many states have been passing legislation recently that restrict women’s rights to abortion, and the main point of argument is whether or not this should be OK. This...

May 14, 2019


Filed under Columns

Summertime is approaching fast, and the warm weather is a perfect reason to open all your windows, play some music and tidy up your place. It’s also a perfect opportunity to rethink your furniture arrangements and other decorations. This past year, I moved into a house with my boyfriend and it left...

Reflecting on religion after death, turmoil

Logan Raschke, Editor-in-Chief

May 13, 2019


Filed under Columns

A lot of horrible things happened to me these past couple weeks. On April 29 at night, my mother's birthday, I got a call from my father--a call I've been dreading since the beginning of the Spring 2019 semester. A call I've been dreading for most of my life, come to think of it. My father called...

Letter from the editor: Thanks for everything

Analicia Haynes, Editor-in-Chief

April 28, 2019


Filed under Columns

This is it. My tenure as editor-in-chief for a remarkable newspaper has reached an end. Of course, it’s a little bittersweet. Why wouldn’t it be? It has certainly been an interesting year, and it is definitely one that I will never forget. From covering stories about controversial topics, which i...

Common sense is needed in life

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

April 28, 2019


Filed under Columns

It is the last week of this school year, so I thought it would be fun to end the year right, by letting everyone know the things that bug the crap out of me. First of all, have some common sense when you are driving. The amount of times I have been befuddled, speechless and confused by drivers’ actio...

Sports fan rage is absolutely terrifying

Logan Raschke, News Editor

April 25, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

This probably goes without saying, but the rage of an angry sports fan is simply terrifying. I don’t know about you guys, but my dad is so bad about this. My dad is a very lax dude. He’s easygoing, caring and compassionate to no end. But when it comes to sports? Well, that’s just a totally d...

This is my last week here at The Daily Eastern News, and it is certainly a bittersweet feeling. I have had the best time working here the past couple of years, and I am certainly going to miss this place. I started off doing occasional news and photography at the DEN, but in August 2017 I was promoted t...

Find your tanning bed; try something new

Megan Keane, columnist

April 24, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I’d never tanned in a tanning bed before, but I had tanned ... once or twice. When I was younger, I tanned nicely. I wasn’t always super pasty and freckly. What I’m really saying is, I wasn’t always super Irish. I’m, like, a decent chunk Italian, and my skin would express those genes in...

College is a cup of coffee: too brief

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

April 24, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

For the past couple of weeks, my dad has been repeating a few words to me that have yet to hit me with their full weight until I sat down to write this column, my last column for The Daily Eastern News: “College is like a cup of coffee.” An absolute delight, but much too brief. Looking back...
