Daylight Saving kicks off Sunday

Elizabeth Taylor, Campus Reporter

March 6, 2020

People across America will turn their clocks forward Sunday marking the start of Daylight Saving Time and the continuance of a not-so-new debate. It was originally put in place to conserve the fuel needed to produce electric power; the U.S. adopted it in 1918. Today, most states still observe the prac...

Time has wings, so enjoy the present

Blake Faith, Sports Reporter

September 20, 2019

Time has wings. People who know me know I use this phrase sometimes. To me, it describes a period of time that I can't believe went by so fast. We’re approaching week six of this semester. For some students, you are in the middle of the grind, whether you’ve had exams, projects or homework. For our ...

College is a cup of coffee: too brief

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

April 24, 2019

For the past couple of weeks, my dad has been repeating a few words to me that have yet to hit me with their full weight until I sat down to write this column, my last column for The Daily Eastern News: “College is like a cup of coffee.” An absolute delight, but much too brief. Looking back...

Coping with leaving college behind

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

April 17, 2019

Being a senior two weeks away from graduating is giving me the most tumultuous emotional rollercoaster ride of my life. The past four years have felt like four minutes and now I have adult life waiting for me to fall into its clutches for eternity. I hate to sound like every middle-aged person...

February 13, 2019

It’s important to take every opportunity that’s available to you. Even if that opportunity is sleeping a couple hours instead of bothering to hustle to class. We must remember, however, that  it’s important not to spread ourselves too thin. I’m realizing that quickly. As a student, I can vou...

What to do when life is uncertain, time flies

February 10, 2019

Tomorrow, you are one day closer to the next chapter of your life. The day after that, you have graduated college and are on to your first job. And finally, the day after that, you have little grandchildren running around and are retired at a beach home in Florida with your significant other. Yes...

Be considerate of others’ time

Staff Editorial

September 5, 2018

We were taught it since probably kindergarten or even earlier: Follow the Golden Rule. When most people consider this “rule,” it seems obvious. Of course I am going to treat others the way I want to be treated. But at the same time, it is easy to put our own needs before someone else’s without ...

Time flies, so appreciate it and grow

Andrew Paisley, Columnist

April 16, 2018

How is it possible? We literally have just a matter of a few weeks left before the semester is over. It really seems like just yesterday I was pulling up to Stevenson Hall, nervous about starting out my junior year of college at a university, away from home in a place where I literally knew no one. I...

Cherish your time, treat yourself

Carole Hodorowicz, Copy Editor

October 24, 2017

Time really does fly when you are having fun.  It also flies when working multiple jobs, drowning in assignments every night, and accepting four hours of sleep as a good night’s rest. With midterms and Homecoming week already behind us and Thanksgiving break approaching, it is hard to believe that...
