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...

I remember looking at the brochure for WSU Pullman in 2018 and reading that it was the third safest college town in America.

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.

There are so many options when looking for a new diet plan. There is keto, vegan, intermediate fasting, vegetarian, paleo, detox or juice cleanse and much more to choose from.
