The recent comprehensive sex education bill passed by the Washington state legislature mandating that public schools follow eight guidelines protects both family values and promotes sexual safety.

In 2002 Playboy magazine published a list of top party schools, WSU took 18th place on the list. In 2009, we rose up to 16th place on Playboy's list. So maybe that's where it started, or perhaps the reputation goes back even further. But WSU's reputation for being a party school still stands stro...

For many students at WSU, getting a healthy amount of exercise is often difficult. While there are multiple recreational facilities located on campus, such as the UREC and Chinook Student Center, many students still struggle to fit exercise into their significantly busy schedules.

OPINION: Pullman is not as safe as it seems

OPINION: Pullman is not as safe as it seems

DANIELLE DENNEHY, Evergreen columnist

March 13, 2020

I remember looking at the brochure for WSU Pullman in 2018 and reading that it was the third safest college town in America. There was no need to fact check it because I thought I felt it throughout the campus and the town. And yes, Cougs helping Cougs plays a major role in our community safety. But t...

OPINION: Feel comfortable to share your emotions

HALEY BRICKWEDEL, Evergreen Columnist

March 13, 2020

Fear, anger, sadness, joy, disgust, surprise and trust are all emotions felt, sometimes daily. Expressing these emotions is easier than pushing them away or down. At the end of the day, the emotions are still there when they are not dealt with. “Emotions are fabulous teachers,” said Isabel Gai...

The emergency short-term loan program at WSU is a way to start to help financially insecure students stay in school. It needs to be better funded so that it can expand into a financial relief package program with no payback required. Jill Creighton, the dean of students at WSU, said the emergency sh...

Does the recent coronavirus outbreak have anything to do with the mysterious surge of violent crimes in the Whitman County area that some claim is the result of a “zombie infection”? No, is the resounding answer from the state’s health officials. “There’s no such thing as a zombie ou...

OPINION: I was wrong about COVID-19

KATIE LANE, Evergreen columnist

March 9, 2020

On Feb. 3, I made a rash judgement, that we shouldn’t stress the coronavirus. I was naive, I hadn’t caught my first frat flu yet. I was a mere child. At the time, students and Pullman natives alike were being racist and irrational about the recent outbreak of the Wuhan novel coronavirus. Unfortunat...

OPINION: Pullman deserves a Qdoba

OPINION: Pullman deserves a Qdoba

KATIE LANE, Evergreen columnist

March 6, 2020

It isn’t fair. When the unfortunate feeling of hunger overtakes one’s self, usually the indulgence we choose to satisfy the pain is fast food. For many, it is the spicy, warm feeling of a Qdoba burrito con queso diablo. The fact that Pullman does not have the establishment is a travesty. And when...

A common feature of any tour of the Chinook, whether it be during an ALIVE orientation session or a campus visit, is the Nap Zone, which cost WSU around 40,000 dollars. The Nap Zone is located on the lower level of the Chinook, tucked away in a desolate corner. It features several nap pods lined agains...

KATIE LANE, Evergreen columnist

March 4, 2020

It may be easier to whip out a laptop and type notes but taking the time to write is ultimately better. Modern universities rely on technology more and more as years continue to pass. It is safe to say that it is impossible to succeed in college without having a laptop or computer of some kind. P...
