OPINION: Plan to study abroad after quarantine

Quarantine shouldn't put a halt to study abroad plans; students can still learn and gain new experiences.

ADAM HUREAU, Evergreen columnist

May 27, 2020

It might not seem like it, but right now is the perfect time to think about studying abroad. We are all stuck inside, trying to fend off boredom now that classes are over. Planning a study abroad experience now provides a welcome distraction from our ho-hum lives and is a good, productive use of time....

OPINION: Satire: Protect our billionaires from coronavirus

Celebrities, as the smartest and brightest of our society, need all the help we can give them.

As Jeff Bezos crosses that holy border from billionaire to trillionaire, hundreds of thousands of Americans are out of work. As Chrissy Teigen complains about artisan cookware, laid-off workers are wondering where their next meal will come from. As Nancy Pelosi greasily shuffles hedge funds around, small...

OPINION: Satire: New tech destroys privacy

Facial recognition and conspiracy theorists have one thing in common: they've increased since the pandemic began.

May 27, 2020

When it comes to coronavirus, everything’s up in the air. Governments are scrambling to respond and strange solutions are being examined for even the slightest amount of feasibility. Maybe it’s OK to drink bleach? You don’t know, and neither do I, because this pandemic has thrown everything we...

OPINION: Support WSU music students during the pandemic

Of all the majors, music students may have been hit hardest by the coronavirus outbreak.

ADAM HUREAU, Evergreen columnist

May 20, 2020

Of everyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, musicians and music students have been hit especially hard. Sure, these times have been hard for students of any major, but music students have had to struggle to stay afloat in an environment where much of what they do is no longer possible. Almost every...

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

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...

Letter from the Editor: Focus on WSU

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

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...

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...

ED BOARD: If you can, support local journalism

The newsroom is what makes us editors, and the print paper is what makes us newspaper journalists. Without either, it's been hard to do well at those jobs.

Crazy semester, right? Nearly 125 years ago student journalists began the Evergreen, a monthly edition that went over news from Washington State College. For the milestone in our history, editors at The Daily Evergreen planned our semester thinking we would be able to dedicate an entire edition c...

Dear readers, I am so grateful. I came to WSU in the fall of 2016 and joined the staff of The Daily Evergreen a few months in. My time here has been life-changing in more ways than one. This is the place I’ve met almost all of my closest friends, the kind you never really lose even when you’re...
