People involved with WSU should respect the financial issues that the University of Idaho is experiencing and not offer condescending solutions to a problem that we know little about. The issues that UI is facing with their budget are different from the issues that WSU has faced in its past, and it is u...

Washington State University is not a school that is revered for its athletic achievements. We do well but never seem to be the best. Yet every year the university spends an increasing amount of school funds on the athletic departments and leaves other areas of the school untouched. One of these almost unt...

Since the collapse of the Berlin Wall, it seems that the United States won the war against communism. The once-powerful empire of the USSR was toppled by a cowboy actor from the 1950s and the pervasive influence of McDonalds. A moment of silence for the passing of Mother Russia was had, and then “Fi...

Going to college for the first time is scary. We leave the comfort and safety of mom and dad's arms and are thrown into the middle of wheat fields. A full schedule of classes along with studying and extracurriculars can take a toll on anyone's mental health. Knowing the resources we have here on campus ...

Since the beginning of the semester, Greek life on campus has seen a lot of changes. The community has been moving toward the direction of progress and a complete culture shift- but this change won't happen overnight. The Interfraternity Council released a new policy on January 27, which includ...

As the new Interfraternity Council initiative is enacted and WSU’s Greek row undergoes a culture shift, it is imperative that an extra emphasis be put on safety.

Everyone loves a good box of chocolates. A random gift from a special someone is a nice gesture. It is the thought that truly counts. However, an obligation to buy both chocolates with flowers and who knows what else, on a specific day in February is never fun. The gifts can be expensive. They can ...

I’m in love with the idea of studying abroad. Immersing yourself in another culture and seeing your major, and hopefully your passion, from a different viewpoint is wildly interesting to me, and studying abroad is one of the main things I want to do before I graduate. I’m not that in love with E...

January’s ASWSU hiring controversy produced a significant amount of backlash and opinions, on both sides of the issue.

Here at WSU, we use GPA to evaluate our academic success. As a student, it can be easy to obsess over your GPA. A high GPA comes with a feeling of achievement and can bring new opportunities. However, a low GPA can come with feelings of guilt, disappointment and can have a significant effect on yo...

JACOB HERSH, Evergreen columnist

February 10, 2020

Everyone’s familiar with ABC’s “The Bachelor,” a hot mess of spray tans and off-brand Ryan Seacrest impersonators. Women, it seems, enter a semi-rabid state of mind at the sight of a chiseled jawline on a guy that looks like Flannel-Wearing Extra #1 from a Luke Combs music video. What h...
