The CUB serves as the primary student union building on campus here at WSU. The CUB itself hosts a dynamic range of offices, meeting places, ballrooms, stores and food vendors. However, none of the businesses inside the CUB, as well as the CUB building itself, are open 24 hours. Making this change happ...

The Multicultural Student Centers are some of my favorite places on campus. If you have time in between or after classes you can go up to any of the centers on the fourth floor of the CUB and study, talk to people, sleep or do whatever you need to do that’s legal in a public space. But besides t...

WSU students know all too well the issues and social stigma involved with the act of changing majors. Many often view changing majors as a risky process that ultimately adds time and money onto an individual’s college education. In reality, changing majors is a simple and common process for students th...

We love our Vandals to the east. They may be our Chick-fil-A supplier, but they are much more complex than that. The University of Idaho is experiencing their own problems financially that we need to be aware of. These budget cuts are something we should be able to sympathize with, considering we ha...

Several faculty and staff members were caught embezzling money from WSU by claiming hours that were not actually worked, according to Ernie Madoff, the official spokesman for WSU, home of the overpaid administrative vacation. “We have to send the message that misuse of university funds is never OK,” ...

Something that is said time and time again from on campus is, “Why the hell do I have to take this class?” Or, “This is a waste of my time.”   Yup, you guessed it, UCORE classes. Everyone takes them, and almost everyone hates them. So why do we take these dreaded classes other than the ...

The raise in parking rates and ticket fees are bad for students, but not raising these fees now will do even more damage to students in the long run. Rates on parking permits, tickets and daily and hourly parking are set to increase by anywhere from 50 cents to $100, WSU Transportation Services w...

Dogs live on average 10-13 years, and cats live from 2-16 years. This means they can become a big part of life, the home and family. But the biggest mistake college students are making is adopting an animal when they are not ready. This can lead to pets being neglected and in need of new homes. ...

GUS WATERS, Evergreen columnist

February 21, 2020

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...

Students in this day and age have a multitude of options when it comes to their education.

KATIE LANE, Evergreen columnist

February 19, 2020

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 ...

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...
