All WSU freshmen should have to live in the dorms for at least their first semester of college, if not the whole year. Living in the dorms as a freshman can either feel like moving into a second home or a prison cell. Currently, the policy at WSU is if you go through formal rush you can’t live...

University Greek systems are a popular topic of conversation on most campuses. It seems that people either love or hate them. The people who love Greek life are usually a part of it and appreciate being involved with the community. The people who don’t appreciate it usually aren’t part of Greek...

Climate change advocacy groups need to present all the facts before they suggest solutions. The national debate on climate change has certainly polarized many people along economic and ideological lines.

In May 2018 the theater department shut down, leaving students in fall 2018 without the academic influence of acting and theater. Students have creative outlets through activities like drawing, painting and music, but when it comes to performance arts, WSU is severely lacking. Since the budget cuts...

Mandatory attendance policies are ableist

KRISTIN BULZOMI, Evergreen columnist

September 5, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinion, Showcase

Every semester I anxiously wait for the first day of classes to receive the syllabus. It is not necessarily because I am excited to start a new semester or class. No, the main reason I am so anxious to find out the expectations of all my new courses is because I have a disability and I need to know...

Universal income necessary in automated economy

Universal income necessary in automated economy

ERIC SIMPSON, Evergreen columnist

An automated economy will remove the need for people to work. Robot labor will be far cheaper and more reliable than human labor with the bonus of working around the clock. Without an income due to the lack of work, people will not be able to purchase goods and pay taxes. Society then inevitably collapses. As...

When you say “health care is a right,” to what extent are you willing to defend that statement? Philosophically speaking, I would say that argument doesn’t go very far. It’s one thing to argue for a legal statute entitling all people to be medically treated when necessary. However, defining...

Over 1 million people with gender identities differing from their birth sex were estimated to be in the U.S. in 2016 and the expectation is that number will continue to grow in coming years. It’s a large sum, but how many people have you met representing it? Of those, how many have you gotten to...

It’s that time of year again, the mad dash to pick up textbooks, bargain hunting for the lowest prices. Used or old, required or not, they’re all dreaded. We sometimes avoid buying the required books until the first class to see if they’re necessary and oftentimes that isn’t possible until...

When we talk about the strategic allocation of taxes for Pullman, we often remove all sense of perspective when it comes to the vital use of these resources to maintaining public order. No case could be truer than that of the Pullman Police Department. Pullman Police, as part of the general fund,...

Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes and not all bodies are the same. We see it in the differences between ourselves and others. Some of us are shorter, others taller. Some of us have brunette hair, others have black, blonde, red or any other color. This is true of our body size too. Bodies...
