About 25 minutes after my job interview, and five minutes after finishing the paperwork to get on payroll, I was on my way to report my first story for The Daily Evergreen, “A billion reasons to celebrate,” about the university raising copious amounts of donor money.

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.

As yet another chapter of my life comes to an end, I prepare myself for the flipped page ahead, intrigued to see where the story of life takes me next.

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.

Creative interaction with information is arguably the most important part of education, yet it’s hardly used in a classroom. Instead, we box learning into textbooks, lectures, papers, exams, etc. This is not to say these traditional elements don’t have a role in school, but they can’t be the...

LUKE HUDSON, Evergreen columnist

April 11, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinion

Hate speech on campus is an issue that should be solved with more speech, not more restrictions. Suppressing unpopular, critical or hateful views is directly opposed to the mission of WSU as an institution that advances knowledge and prepares students for professional life beyond a college campus. WSU,...
