A lot can change over the course of a year. Whether it's in pop culture or an individual’s life, change is inevitable and the world is constantly moving forward.  When writing this column and thinking about the last year of change, I think of two things:  the Jonas Brothers thankfully being back...

Change, growing apart is a natural part of life

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

February 27, 2019

I don’t think I am alone when I say this: change is hard. And it really sucks. Accepting change has always been difficult for me. I have never been able to grasp how things can change seemingly all at once, right under my nose with a neon blinking sign that says “BUCKLE UP, BUMPY ROAD AHEAD.” ...

It is hard to think that you can move everything you need in just an hour. Freshman move-in day seemed to last all day.

Here we go again. In Tuesday’s edition of The Daily Eastern News, the Faculty Senate discussed creating another “vitalization” group, to make its own recommendations regarding Eastern’s future. While this is definitely an interesting possibility, and more dialogue about where Eastern is going is always ...

Make realistic resolutions that will stick

Abigail Carlin, Columnist

January 10, 2018

New Year’s resolutions are contagious. My newsfeeds are polluted with posts of healthy recipes and meal planning ideas, home workouts and well wishes regarding good health and sound mind in the New Year.  I get it. It feels good to do good, whether one is working towards a constructive goal or a...

As a university, Eastern has gone through many staffing changes over the years, meaning many interview sessions with potential candidates for a variety of positions. Now, we have candidates interviewing to be the next director of New Student and Family Programs this week and next week, including an...

Focus on yourself, be ready for change

Ben Leman, Copy Editor

November 6, 2017

Recently I heard the song “Gypsy” by Stevie Nicks while I was working the copy desk for The Daily Eastern News.  I find it really interesting how songs can trigger memories and feelings to individual people.  One song could have hundreds of different meanings to different people across the worl...
