Remind your friends that you love them

Jessica Stewart

October 8, 2019

It’s a common belief that the word “love” is special and should only be used sparingly. You shouldn’t throw it around at just anyone. I strongly disagree. I tell so many people in my life that I love them, and it hasn’t lost one ounce of meaning for me. I tell my close friends I love them...

August 18, 2019

It is finally official, I am a senior and this is going to be my last year at Eastern. I have decided to set personal and academic goals this school year. Every student at Eastern should enjoy the school year, especially seniors because it is the last year before adulthood. Legally, I have been an...

Coffee is one influential drink

Alyssa Cravens, Staff Reporter

July 16, 2019

I didn’t like coffee—at least, not at first. It took several years of drinks littered with sugar and the slightest coffee taste to slowly build myself up to a point where I could drink it any other way. Today, I find myself craving the bitter taste, hot or cold, in the morning, noon or night;...

When was the last time you ate a home-cooked meal? Did you cook it, or did someone else cook it for you? Learning how to cook is an essential life skill because we all have to eat.

College friends are the best friends you’ll ever have

Jessica Stewart, Columnist

May 23, 2019

Remember when we all said that we’d keep in touch with our friends from high school? Remember when you thought your high school best friends would be your best friends for life? I remember, and oh how foolish I was. Little did I know that in college I would meet some of the best people I have...

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...

Reach out to family, friends when possible

Logan Raschke, News Editor

January 14, 2019

I’m the kind of person who hardly ever gets sick or injured. With that being said, I am quite clumsy, and you can imagine my horror and shock when I fractured my ankle in the stupidest way possible. I was just walking to my next class and tripped on a twig, or a crack in the sidewalk, or something els...

Make time to stay connected with friends

Carole Hodorowicz, Opinions Editor

For the past two weekends, I said farewell to Charleston to visit my lifelong friends from home at their universities. The first weekend of February I found myself wearing blue and gold in celebration of National Marquette Day. This past weekend, I was fully surrounded in hues of purple, gold and gr...

Sean Says: keep traditions, stay impulsive

October 26, 2017

Every winter, Gary and I go to a Chicago Bulls game. I should say, we attempt to go to a Bulls game after last year’s massive debacle. As I have said, Gary and I are an impulsive duo. Mid-week of my freshman year of college, three years ago already, dang I’m graduating. Wow. Anyways, that is ...
