Self-love and acceptance

Kate Rehwinkel, Staff Reporter

August 27, 2018


Filed under Opinions

Growing up I have always been on the heavy side, even when I was born I was 9 pounds and 1 ounce, and I was even born early. I’ve never been super confident in my body because I never looked the same as everyone else. I wasn’t the skinny, popular, athletic girl that everyone wanted to look like....

Nothing wrong with a disagreement

Corryn Brock, Staff Reporter

August 27, 2018


Filed under Columns

My friends and acquaintances span over a very broad and vast set of beliefs. Some of them like pineapple on pizza (those ones tend to stay acquaintances) and the others know that pineapples don’t belong on pizza because the only fruit that belongs on pizza is a tomato. I love being able to have...

Remembering the words of the late senator McCain

August 27, 2018


Filed under Editorials

The world lost a voice over the weekend, a voice of wisdom and reason that filled an important hole in the messy world of modern politics: John McCain. Whatever your beliefs, it would be hard to disagree with the fact that we are becoming more and more divided as a nation and it is hard to find leaders...

‘You are not the father:’ Maury exploits legitimate problems

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

August 26, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I will be honest, I have fallen victim to the phenomena that is the hype of the “Maury Show.” Seeing people yell at each other on camera and having the truth come out with one of them being embarrassed or upset is somehow entertaining for me and millions of others. Of course, there are other shows like thi...

Letter from the Editor: We will continue to provide honest, fair coverage, reporting

Analicia Haynes, Editor-in-Chief

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Before I even accepted the title as Editor-in-Chief of this newspaper, several people on campus approached me and asked if I would keep the same format. Naturally, I asked what they meant and they said, “Well, are you going to still have hard news on page one and all the good stories on the insi...

After this first week living on campus, I am so glad to be back “home”. Since school ended last semester, I longed to come back to Eastern. I missed my friends and the atmosphere that students bring to life throughout the year. While walking around campus recently, I couldn’t help but notice how clean i...

Forget high school; get involved in college

Tom O'Connor, Columnist

August 24, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

High school, which lasts from the year 4 B.C.E. (before the college era) to the year 1 B.C.E., can be a pretty polarizing topic. Each fall, students wave goodbye to the 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. routine, jamming their belongings into a minivan, before settling in at one of the 5,300 or so universities acros...
