Swiping left on one’s own marriage

Natalee Reynolds, Columnist

April 22, 2019

Welcome to a new generation: fake love. Millennials and iGen’s were the foundation of this new age of love, and I’d like to think that Tinder and other social media sites planted the seed. Tinder started out as an innocent dating site in which users can swipe right (to “like” someone) or le...

Procrastination can lead to problems

Karena Ozier, Columnist

April 22, 2019

A lot of students procrastinate. My personal definition of procrastination is when someone waits until the last minute to complete a task. I have never been one to procrastinate, simply because I hate the stress that I feel when I am rushed to get something done. For me, thinking about how other peop...

Eastern needs more school spirit

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

April 21, 2019

There is a lot of hypocrisy within the student body at Eastern that I want to address. Doing so at the end of the year may seem like a lost cause, since a lot of students are graduating or may be transferring. But this is something that needs to be said because it, I think, has serious implications for the futur...

3 traits to determine a friend’s toxicity

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

April 21, 2019

Friends are people who are supposed to care about you and your wellbeing, or so I thought. I recently had a friendship end a couple of weeks ago. The friendship lasted a year and a half and I thought we would be friends until college ended. Now that we are no longer friends, I see how much happier I am. L...

Staff Editorial

April 21, 2019

There is no better way to celebrate a holiday than to be happy while doing so because a sad holiday celebration is not much of a celebration. So, in the spirit of keeping our spirits high at this stressful time, let us all look back on the semester and think about everything that we have overcome, b...

Analyzing a part of Trump’s following

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

April 18, 2019

This article is meant to detail my and others' interpretation of a small group of Trump supporters who follow Trump and his cabinet members with no questions asked. This is not about Trump himself or the Republican Party; it is the new generation that has risen up and wants to make America great again in...

Do yourself a favor; just go to sleep

Logan Raschke, News Editor

April 18, 2019

Go to bed. I understand that you probably have a lot on your plate, but just go to bed. Adults aged 18-25 are supposed to get between 7-9 hours of sleep a night. I want you now to think about the last time you had a good 7-9 hours of sleep. Well, seeing how we’ve only got one more week of school l...

During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we at The Daily Eastern News would like to emphasize the importance of supporting sexual assault victims who are not typically represented. According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, a traditional college student falls into the most likely to ...

Don’t procrastinate, finish the year strong

Megan Keane, Columnist

April 17, 2019

With the end of the semester vastly approaching, we’re all slumped with the papers we’d been warned with in our syllabi and the final exams we’ve been dreading. Some of us are just starting to think about cracking our books open, and some are only worried about when they’ll be able to return...

Coping with leaving college behind

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

April 17, 2019

Being a senior two weeks away from graduating is giving me the most tumultuous emotional rollercoaster ride of my life. The past four years have felt like four minutes and now I have adult life waiting for me to fall into its clutches for eternity. I hate to sound like every middle-aged person...

The 20-year anniversary of the Columbine massacre is on Saturday, and we at The Daily Eastern News send our condolences to the victims and everyone effected by the massacre that happened on April 20, 1999. Unfortunately, there is a cult following of the Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebol...

Prioritize health as much as school

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

April 16, 2019

With finals around the corner and presentations and projects due in a few weeks, don’t forget to relax. These past two weeks have been killer. I have four presentations in one week coming up, and I just want to remind everyone, including myself, to relax. Prioritizing your biggest projects first is...
