Mental health on college campuses is sometimes overlooked, so we need to bring more awareness to this topic to reassure all students that WSU cares about their mental state. Students often deal with the pressure of adult issues while trying to stay on top of school and other organizations or communi...

The vaping epidemic has spread from adult smokers looking for an alternative to cigarettes all the way down to middle schoolers trying to fit in.

Do you ever see those ads on the side of your screen, enticing you to click on them with their promises of making you thousands of dollars a day from home? While nine times out of 10 that’s a pyramid scheme — and the other time will see your advertising information stolen — the idea isn’t...

Rediscovering passion for photos, new purpose as journalist

Before I started working at The Daily Evergreen I was losing interest in photography. It was not something I was willing to put effort into anymore.

As I struggle to decide how to start this letter, I am sitting in a place that has been such a crucial part of my time at WSU.

The world we live in today makes it immensely more difficult for media to be a truth-seeking “fourth branch of government.” With the combination of keeping up with the news cycle, accurate information being hidden from media and social media’s ability to make everyone a reporter, journalists have...

Modern liberalism should advocate for more than just tolerance

ALEX BIVIANO, Evergreen columnist

November 28, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinion

Although the left is responsible for integrating many human rights visible today, this was not due to its tolerance, but rather the opposite. In order to progress as an integrated society, tolerance is not the goal. Tolerance...

In a harbor far to the east, past a countrywide divide, there is a statue. It stands for many things, but an inscription at its base tells the purpose best: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” This is an often-quoted...
