We have a tendency to alienate people in the endeavor to create an understanding towards cultural diversity. Instead of teaching, we’re arguing. We’re closing any lines of communication and understanding towards a healthier cultural environment by punishing instead of responding with open-minde...

No matter your major, you have and will write a noticeable number of essays while at WSU. Even if you hate everything about writing and you figure out a schedule where you have a minimal amount of work, at least five papers are required before you walk across the stage like our most recent graduates.

Ever since I wrote my first story for The Daily Evergreen in spring 2015, my roommates greet me with surprise if I come home at any point between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. I can’t blame them. I once spent 48 hours straight in the newsroom, leaving only to buy Panda Express. Since I started, I’ve worked...

Today marks my last day as editor-in-chief of The Daily Evergreen. At times, I never thought I would make it here, or predict the feelings this sentence stirs up. It’s bittersweet to be sure.

When I first walked into The Daily Evergreen’s newsroom as a freshman during Week of Welcome, I was looking for a way to earn some money. I just wanted to see a movie or hit up Porchlight Pizza, maybe develop my photography. I had no idea what this paper would become for me or how it would shape my...

Sexual assault awareness month brought support to women across campus through events like the REDress Project, hosted by the Native American Women’s Association, and the teal ribbon event hosted by Men for Social Change, a group I’m a member of. This month is often considered solely for women,...

Society is still stuck on the concept that women should dress a certain way. We wear too little and it’s a problem. We cover ourselves up and it’s a problem. Whatever we wear or do, women never seem to be able to win in this world. It’s more than just being judged though. Many women are harassed...

Constructing a class schedule is more than just a loose four-year plan and a preference for either morning or afternoon classes.
