Money problems of the typical college student

A shirt that I had said “The best things in life are free.” To me, “free” can mean one of two things: Something can be free in regard to no payment needed for something typically paid for, and free from burdens. Someone can get an item for free and also be free of financial problems. I can g...

Cheating is not OK

You are not in an open relationship if you are the only one who knows about it; you just suck. As relationships evolve and change into being a variety of things, we at The Daily Eastern News believe in being honest with yourself and your partner(s) about what you are doing. If what you are doing i...

Instead of hating on people, stay quiet

I was introduced to Lil Pump’s music a couple of years ago by a friend, and my reaction was the same as many who listen to the rapper’s music for the first time: what is this? Keep in mind, this was before “Gucci Gang” and the Kanye collaboration “I Love It.” At the time, Lil Pump had only...

Gen Z, Gen X both have texting problems

Filed under Columns, Opinions

My generation, the Gen Z (or iGen), gets a lot of hate for being on our phones, and I’m not going to make any excuses for us, but I am going to draw attention to those Gen Xs (iGen’s parents and grandparents) that are just as guilty of the addiction to technology as everyone else claims we are. Ther...

The following review contains spoilers for “The Dragon Prince” season two. Netflix recently released “The Dragon Prince” season two, and it is way better than the first season. I was not expecting to get another season so quick, being that season one only debuted five months ago. Hopefully ...

Adopt a cat, your new friend

Logan Raschke, News Editor

February 22, 2019

I have a black-gray shorthair cat with white mittens and a little button on his chin named Charcoal. I like to tell people, ‘I wish that dot on his chin was an off-button.’ I don’t know exactly how much he weighs (probably about 12-15 pounds); all I know for sure is that his paunch (the chunky ...

Change DARE curriculum to actually help students

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

February 21, 2019


Filed under Columns

If you have gone to grade school in the past 30 to 40 years, you more then likely graduated from the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Program. I vaguely remember DARE when I was in grade school. A local police officer came in and taught students how to not succumb to peer pressure and not use d...

How to read multiple books at once and keep up

Megan Keane, Columnist

February 20, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I was recently asked how I keep track of the plots of all the books I’m reading—and I was dumbfounded. Upon declaring that I was reading four books at once—three for class and one for fun—my father was appalled. “How do you keep track of all that?” I think I responded: “With bookmarks....

Perseverance will help you get through the week

Filed under Columns, Opinions

This is a call to all my fellow students who are sniffling, coughing and taking shots of DayQuil. Let us raise our tissues and play our tiny violins together: It sucks to be sick during the week as a college student. The rules change when you become a college student, and these new rules aren’t exact...

There is no set order to experience life events

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Go to college at 18, graduate at 22, go straight into a job, move out, get married and have kids. This is the process of life that society has instilled into our minds for as long as we can remember. People often say to do what makes you happy without considering the other implications behind the ph...

Everyone has their quirks; here are mine

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Everyone has their quirks in life, whether it is wearing lucky socks at a sports game or not opening an umbrella inside. My quirks tend to be a bit different. Anyone who knows me knows that I am extremely open about my mental illnesses, but only my super-close friends know my weird quirks, until now....

Every decision you make impacts your life

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Throughout the day, we tend to make countless decisions, ranging from what we choose to eat for lunch, what we want to wear that day and what to watch on TV. Sure, those decisions may not seem that important, but we do often make other decisions each day that can greatly affect our daily lives. Sometimes...
