For the past three years, the WSU School of Music’s horn and oboe camps have provided middle and high school students with an environment to meet other students and practice their craft. However, with COVID-19, that environment is moving online. The horn and oboe camps are a week-long excursion for students f...

Quarantine Cooking: Pizza Margherita

As it is in every other form, this pizza is perfect.

Fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus made a video for French Vogue detailing how to make Pizza Margherita. Because I love Jacquemus and had nothing else to do, I gave the recipe a try. I give it a strong five stars – the crust was crisp, but not crunchy, and the flavors blended perfectly. I was w...

OPINION: Satire: Protestors, politicians respond to COVID-19

Protestors and politicians alike are both, in their own way, reacting poorly to this pandemic.

As states continue to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, tensions around the country flare as people demand the reopening of businesses and services. Protesters in Michigan, Washington and other hard-hit states see this as an infringement of their constitutional rights, while harried government officials...

Quarantine Cooking: Pink lemonade pie

All you need for a pink lemonade pie is extra creamy whipped cream, frozen pink lemonade, graham cracker pie crust, and condensed milk.

This tangy dessert is near and dear to my heart. Each year I travel to Montana for the Fourth of July weekend and, nearly every holiday, pink lemonade pie is a staple for us. This recipe is incredibly easy, which is why I love it for the summertime.  Sickly-sweet desserts can make the summer feel even heavier, so ...

May is Asian Pacific American History Month — an umbrella that encompasses way too many people, cultures and amazing books for a one-to-three-books-a-month book club to adequately cover. This month, I chose three books that deal with the relationship between the East and the West. These books deal ...

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...

OPINION: Satire: Dogs and cats react to the quarantine

Dogs and cats have responded very differently to the coronavirus quarantine.

JACOB HERSH, Evergreen opinion editor

May 13, 2020

While many have studied and acknowledged the impact of the quarantine on the economy, local business and healthcare workers, few have examined the effect the lockdown has had on our furry animal companions. Dogs and cats, man’s best friend and man’s casual roommate (respectively), have been hit just...

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...
