Spring cleaning tips: Staying tidy is important

Jessica Stewart, Columnist

May 14, 2019

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

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

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

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...

STAFF EDITORIAL: We made it through the school year

Staff Editorial

April 28, 2019

We made it. Congratulations, everyone. The end of the semester and school year is upon us, and in a few days we can all relax knowing that we do not have classes anymore, or projects or homework. For some of us, we are done with our schooling completely. After walking across the stage to grab that...

Sports fan rage is absolutely terrifying

Logan Raschke, News Editor

April 25, 2019

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...

Experience makes you who you are

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

April 25, 2019

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...

Graffiti, while illegal, can sometimes be art

Staff Editorial

April 25, 2019

When we think of graffiti, we usually think of the typically amateur scribbling on the trains we watch cross by in our cars. Or we think about the quick glimpses we catch of the simple nicknames and profanity on the sides of bridges we drive under. While some choose to spray stone and cement walls with vulgar...

Find your tanning bed; try something new

Megan Keane, columnist

April 24, 2019

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

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...

The country wastes time on too much social media

Staff Editorial

April 24, 2019

People everywhere in the U.S. are spending too much time on their social media instead of actually going outside and communicating with others face-to-face. Don’t get us wrong; social media and smartphones are extremely important. Do you remember the last time you didn’t have the resources...

Don’t be afraid to try new things

Staff Editorial

April 22, 2019

Often, people are so quick to say they do not enjoy doing a certain activity or spending time with a certain person. The problem is that most of the people who say these things have never actually done the things they say they dislike. We at The Daily Eastern News are firm believers that you have ...
