Letter From The Editor: Welcome to People of the Palouse

JOEL KEMEGUE, Evergreen Mint editor

September 10, 2020

If there’s one thing you notice working for The Daily Evergreen, it’s that Joel is a really cool editor, and you probably want to be just like him. Another thing is that you get to talk to and write about insane amount of cool people. Actors, musicians, artists, people from different backgrounds wi...

Letter from the Editor: Support the arts

The Washington-Idaho Symphony Orchestra is one of the many organizations that had to cancel their events due to COVID-19

JOEL KEMEGUE, Evergreen Mint editor

August 27, 2020

The whole purpose of the Mint section is to cover the arts and culture scene of the Palouse, and I feel like we’ve done a disservice by not mentioning one of the biggest problems affecting it right now: COVID-19 and the shutdown. Most of the events Mint usually covers obviously won’t be happening this ...

ANGELICA RELENTE, Editor-in-chief

August 17, 2020

This is definitely what I did not expect my time as editor-in-chief to be like.  For those of you who may not know me yet — I’m Angelica Relente, and I’m a senior multimedia journalism major from Oahu, Hawaii. I was the editor-in-chief this past summer and will be editor-in-chief this fall...

Letter from the Editor: ‘In moments of great stress’

Letter from the Editor: 'In moments of great stress'

JACOB HERSH, Evergreen opinion editor

August 17, 2020

When I was a kid, my dad had a saying that I only found out later he cribbed from George Costanza’s father: “Serenity now!” He’d pull this one out intermittently and in moments of great stress, when our car would fail on the highway, or my brother threw up in the back seat, or on ill-fated fishing...

Letter from the Editor: Art hasn’t stopped

Joel Kemegue will be the Mint editor for the summer and fall.

JOEL KEMEGUE, Evergreen mint editor

May 15, 2020

I joined The Daily Evergreen in fall 2019 because I wanted to make dumb satire articles and nothing else. Mint was the way to do that. Maybe I’d dip my toe in a news article every other month, but I had no intention of going any further than that. If you had asked me then if I wanted to be Mint edi...

Letter from the Editor: Focus on WSU

Jacob Hersh will be the opinion editor for the summer and fall semester.

JACOB HERSH, Evergreen opinion editor

May 13, 2020

It’s a crazy world in which we’ve found ourselves, where masks are high fashion and hand sanitizer suddenly becomes a hoarded commodity. Personally, I never could have predicted a worldwide pandemic. (My money was always on a nuclear war, but that’s another story.) When you look around, however...

Letter from the Editor: Here’s to staying local

Madysen McLain will be the Roots editor for summer and fall 2020.

MADYSEN MCLAIN, Evergreen roots editor

May 11, 2020

My journey with The Daily Evergreen began in August 2018. I didn't think an informational meeting and a chance to get free pizza would quickly turn into an experience I would never forget.  Since then, I have written for the news section, helped lead a section as deputy news editor, and wrote for Ro...

Letter from the Editor: Emphasizing the 'Ever' in Evergreen


May 11, 2020

Although it has been weeks since we last set foot in Murrow Hall, we can still picture some of the quotes that line the walls of the newsroom. One quote that is still fresh in our minds is “The job of the newspaper is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” Today, there are countle...

GRACE ARNIS, Managing Editor

May 1, 2020

Dear readers, Coming back for a fifth year of college was always something I knew I would have to do.  I learned in an introductory communication course my second semester of college the final class requirement to complete my degree directly conflicted with my schedule as a student-athlete on the wom...

OPINION: ASWSU just pays lip service to POC

JOEL KEMEGUE, Evergreen columnist

March 9, 2020

The multicultural debate last Wednesday disappointed me. In a forum for discussion about what each of the candidates planned to do for people of color at WSU, I walked out with no idea what anybody planned to do to address any problems relating to people of color at WSU. I admit I left early, but I...

MINDY MALONE, Evergreen Mint editor

January 16, 2020

I know I'm about two weeks late saying it, but happy new year! I've always been a big fan of New Year's Day. I know time is arbitrary and everything is meaningless and blah, blah, blah, nihilistic commentary. Whatever, I've always thought it's a good idea. I believe everyone is always looking for ...

Letter from the editor: Mint is getting creative

Sydney Brown started at The Daily Evergreen as a Life reporter, but she’s ready to try her hand as Mint editor. The rest of the semester will feature more creative pieces.

SYDNEY BROWN, Evergreen Mint editor

October 9, 2019

This is the third letter of this nature that I have written, so I will keep this one short. I started as a Life reporter for The Daily Evergreen, but I always loved the loose feeling of Mint. It seemed a place to go for more creative nonfiction. As someone whose love of writing came in the form of...
