Officials should respect the press

Staff Editorial

March 5, 2020

The press is an arm of democracy, and in order for it to do its job and inform the public, elected officials need to speak to and have respect for journalists. This is also true for those working in student media. Elected officials (presidents, congress people and even local leaders like mayors, board...

Smokers need to respect non-smokers

Karena Ozier, Columnist

April 1, 2019

When I go to the store or to a restaurant with my friends and family, I do not want to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke before I enter the building. I can understand that it is not the easiest thing to stop smoking, but there should be an understanding between the people who smoke and the people...

Respect is earned by giving it to others

Staff Editorial

March 6, 2019

Respect is something that should be given and received by all. There are so many people in this world who lack respect, yet they believe they should automatically receive it. When you see a person in the hallway as you walk to class and they say hi, it does not hurt for you to say hi back. So many...

Staff Editorial

February 26, 2019

Well, we are just a few days away from one of Eastern’s favorite traditions: Unofficial. Amid the stress and busyness of the semester, especially with midterms, this is understandably a much-anticipated break for many students. For those who are not aware, in summary, Unofficial is an event starting Saturday morn...

The taste of politics is disgusting

Karena Ozier, Columnist

September 26, 2018

The political system is unappetizing. The easiest way for me to look at it is in terms of taste. It’s a system of sour and salty. There seems to be no sweet side to the mixture. On either side that I look at, I see no compromise. No one is a little salty and a little sour. This is unappetizing. I ...

Learn through experience; do not expect life to be easy

Abbey Whittington, Columnist

March 5, 2018

Part of growing up is learning how to bite your tongue, even if it means drawing blood. I am as hot headed as they come; when people are disrespectful I want to push them into the hole they have dug for themselves, but sometimes you just have to walk away from the matter to collect your steamrolled...

Sean Says: Take advantage of opportunities, do not interrupt

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

February 11, 2018

To me, nothing looks worse than blatantly not paying attention and then raising your hand to ask a question that the presenter literally just go done covering. It makes you look like an idiot to the rest of the of the group and also incredibly rude to the person presenting. Myself and seven others...

It is not about whether you believe it, it is about respecting others’ beliefs

Carol Hodorowicz, Opinions Editor

January 28, 2018

The amount of complexities we will never understand and questions we will never have the full answer to in this world is infinite. Is there a heaven and a hell? Too bad the dead cannot speak. Can the stars really determine how we are going to feel or where our life is headed? In my opinion, I think...

Be respectful of all majors, programs

Staff Report

January 9, 2018

Both on the internet and in real life, jokes about other people’s majors are prevalent. Whether they are about how “easy” someone else’s major seems or how “you’ll never get a job in that field,” it seems like what people study is now an easy target. While these jokes may be funny, they...

Lead by example, teach respect

Liz Stephens, Columnist

November 13, 2017

There is currently a Buzzfeed article being shared on Facebook that shows how a student at Clatsop Community College in Oregon created photographs of quotes from our president on women’s bodies. One of the photos has a woman in only her underwear on her knees with Trump’s quote “Must be a pretty...

Column: Respect the choice to go Greek

Abigail Carlin, Copy Editor

September 19, 2016

Let me begin this column by stating that I am not involved with Greek life, nor do I plan on becoming involved in the future. That being said, I recognize the negative stigmas associated with Greek life and I find it rather unfortunate that such a divide exists on our campus. Through most of last...
