On Jan. 13, Eastern’s women’s basketball team lost to Belmont 58-86 in a 28-point rout at Lantz Arena. Following three quarters in which the Panthers allowed Belmont to shoot 47.37 percent from the field, the Bruins opened up the fourth quarter on a 9-0 run, a portentous omen for what would become...

There is a saying out there that says to be a good team in any sport you have to have a little bit of luck. Well, the Eastern football team is certainly exhausting all of its luck in what has been an impressive start to Ohio Valley Conference play. No one can take anything away from the Panthers...

Panthers staying focused on games ahead

September 25, 2017

On Sept. 16 against Illinois State, the Eastern football team’s offense put together the worst performance coach Kim Dameron had seen in over 30 years of coaching college football. One week and 68 plays on offense later, the Panthers are 1-0 in Ohio Valley Conference games following a 19-16 win...

Column: T.V. title sequences evolve

April 6, 2017

It used to be the first thing you would hear as you clicked on the T.V. Saturday morning. With a bowl of cereal on your lap, you pushed the channel number on the remote by memory, sat back and settled in for your favorite cartoons. You know it was about to begin with the familiar song. For me,...

Column: Flavor-changing tablets disappoint

Megan Ivey, Staff Reporter

February 23, 2017

When I was in middle school, my best friend created a monthly dare. She would go to the condiment table in the lunchroom, pick up a napkin full of jalapenos, the spiciest food we could get at school, and place them before us. “Eat it,” she said to me. The tale-tell sign of childhood – someon...

Column: A black ‘Bachelorette’ is long overdue

Megan Ivey, Staff Reporter

February 16, 2017

I spent my Valentine’s day in a true fashion of romance — eating pizza and making my boyfriend watch the latest episode of “The Bachelor.” Because what is more romantic than watching twenty women fight for the attention of one man? I am aware of the show’s downfalls. Even so, it is fun to...

Column: Super Bowl ads cause as much buzz, conflict as game

Megan Ivey, Staff Reporter

February 2, 2017

The Superbowl is three days away, and I’m going to be honest, I had to Google who was playing. Yes, I am one of those people who only watch for the ads (after the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, of course). There are times when I wait until the day after to watch a compilation video of all of the commercials....

Column: Police, social justice must both change

Juan Nevarez, Staff Reporter

September 28, 2016

It has been brought to public attention that the All Lives Matter movement is a nonsense manifestation that spawned out of opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement. It is a development of anger from the fragile American that do not feel included in Black Lives Matter. Obviously all lives matter,...

Column: Students should vote this year

Maher Kawash, Staff Reporter

September 16, 2016

The 2016 Presidential Election is just a few months away, and that raises the ultimate question. Who should I vote for? Well, I am not going to tell you who to vote for or anything like that, but I will tell you one thing. Go vote. When it comes to most college students and politics, there...

Column: Study abroad if possible

Nicole Kink, Staff Reporter

September 12, 2016

Studying abroad was never something I imagined myself doing while I was in college. I remember being in a class and listening to different testimonies describing how it was the “best experience of their lives” and how they “wished they could go back.” Meanwhile, I sat in class rolling my eyes...

Column: Be the ‘more loving one’

Abigail Carlin, Copy Editor

September 9, 2016

On the last day of my junior year of high school, I was presented with the “More Loving One” award. My English teacher, Mr. R, created this award for me because I reminded him of the last two lines of the second stanza in W.H. Auden’s poem, “The More Loving One.” The lines that were printed...

Column: Support Charleston by shopping locally

Sierra Falk, Staff Reporter

September 8, 2016

Quenching a shopaholic’s thirst can often entail surfing websites for hours or taking extensive trips to the city, but how convenient would it be to shop in stores just down the street? By shopping locally, your purchases not only contribute to the Charleston economy, but they also give purpose...
