It really feels good to be back at Eastern. I am excited to start out the year in a new position as Opinions Editor, and I am anxious to see how the year goes. Last year was my first year here as a junior transfer student, and to say I was petrified is an understatement. I really did not have any i...

I am sure I am not the only person who can say this spring semester has kicked my ass in more ways than one. I came out of 2017 with a new life perspective and what I thought was a firm grasp on the path I wanted go in my life.  Of course, nothing went as planned, and I had to roll with life’s punches...

Youth is a wonderful and exciting time for many of us. The opportunities, knowledge and time seem never ending. We can eat what we want, drink what we want, act and talk how we want (bearing the consequences of course), but most importantly we can learn whatever we want when we want to. We have the...

Column: A good first impression can make a difference

Analicia Haynes, Managing Editor

Filed under Columns, Opinions

First impressions can either make or destroy a person’s reputation. Oh sure, it is easy to brush it off and say you already know how to make a good first impression, and why should you listen to yet another bit of advice that will only go through one year and out the other? But therein lies the...
