Even...

November 6, 2018

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. I even had help from 3 other people.  I recently moved 4 doors down from the dorm room I moved into at the beginning of the year. I was stressed knowing that moving day part 2 was...

Megan Keane, Columnist

October 24, 2018

It’s officially that point in the semester where I forget I’m a human being.

Andrew Paisley, Opinion Editor

October 9, 2018

Throughout the past month, I have been dealing with seasonal depression. Usually, this doesn’t start affecting me until closer to November, but it hit me early this year. I often feel that people do not take it seriously when someone says they are dealing with seasonal depression. This is not a j...

Although it’s only the middle of September, it already feels like December. Many of us, especially those of us on the News staff, are fatigued and physically and mentally drained.   We acknowledge that we are not the only ones who feel like throwing in the towel.   In fact, knowing that ma...

Mental health in focus

As the country observed National Suicide Prevention Day yesterday, we at The Daily Eastern News kept in mind, just like we always have, the importance of suicide prevention.

Progress is a process; take health one step at a time

Abbey Whittington, Junior Journalism Major

November 2, 2017

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...
