As a student who is affiliated with the Army ROTC program at Washington State University, you become aware of the fact that not many individuals understand what it is like and how being a part of Army ROTC can benefit you further in life, but also take up a lot of time to where you need to be efficient whe...

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

In a recent letter to the editor, Hayley Hohman wrote to condemn College Republicans and the decision to host a pro-Trump table in the CUB. Hohman, you are wrong to call those concerned about illegal immigration "fear mongers."We support legal immigration. We disavow hate. And we support the American Dream...

BY JANSEN M. VANDERMEULEN | Student Regent

March 30, 2016


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Tuesday’s column “Match made in heaven” was speculative and lacking in accuracy. Author Braden Johnson declared that he “couldn’t shake the feeling” that newly-announced WSU President Kirk Schulz “was elected to make WSU’s growing deficiencies in fundraising vanish.”He is not correct. ...

Letter to the editor: Student Involvement didn’t get the memo on free speech

By Brian Schraum

March 3, 2016


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

I applaud WSU officials for their efforts to update the university’s antiquated speech codes (WSU working to update free speech policies, March 2). Requiring two weeks’ notice for protests or other protected First Amendment activity is both impractical and unconstitutional.It seems the Office of Studen...

Dear Editor,When I read the article in the Oct. 28 Daily Evergreen with coverage of the Oct. 27, 2015 City Council meeting (“Asking to rename Nevada St.”), I cringed over my quote about body-worn cameras.

Dear editor,Between fake hair and feeling the Bern, it’s easy to lose focus on the much less exciting realm of local politics.The impact of homegrown policymaking is likely to have a much more direct effect on your life than the issues being discussed on CNN.The Evergreen State is one of the best examp...

This presidential campaign, even environmentally conscious candidates like Bernie Sanders have failed to put forward detailed plans to combat climate change.Although vague promises to reduce emissions are effective on the campaign trial, any serious plan to reduce America’s carbon emissions must in...

In his Sept. 15th article, Tyler Laferriere lambasts millennials’ “moronic love affair with Marxism,” and writes that he cannot take his Marxist peers seriously.

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Dear editor,It’s cool that the mayor has offered a warm welcome to Pullman for incoming students, but maybe other year-round citizens need to offer a different kind of welcome, one that begs students not to completely trash the city—literally—during their stay.Another school year at WSU is about...
