This weekend, I found myself agreeing to do something that I wouldn’t have imagined that I would have agreed to. I used to play the piano in my free time throughout middle school and high school. I never got to learn more than a few songs because with my schedule becoming increasingly busier, I...

I, like many students at this institution, am almost done with college. I like college, and I have learned lots of things in my four years of undergraduate studies.

Filed under Columns

Lovelytheband performed in McAfee Thursday, and if most students were asked, they did not care about the concert and did not go. Whether or not the group itself is part of that formula, there are ways Eastern, both the student body and University Board, can improve the turnout for the annual concer...

Fashion, expression should be gender neutral

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

April 14, 2019


Filed under Columns

I’ve always believed that fashion should be gender neutral. Most people would disagree, but I think that if a guy chooses to wear high heels, that is his decision and it should not be criticized. This weekend I went with my suite mates to get a manicure and pedicure, and they talked me into getting...

Treat animals with love and care

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

April 11, 2019


Filed under Columns

Me being an avid animal lover and owner, it disgusts me when I see stories online of animals being abused or neglected.

Filed under Columns, Opinions

If you’re anything like me and my suitemates, you’re stretching toward the summer the way a sunflower grows toward the sun.

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Throughout my recovery, I have learned so much about how to handle it, and I know there is so much more I still have left to learn. Each day, we as addicts battle this disease of addiction, and sometimes we have to take it one day at a time. Other times, we may have to take it one hour at a time. There...
