MATTHEW MORROW | Pullman

My friend and colleague James Allsup wrote last week of how students both at WSU and across the nation have responded to recent political controversy by flocking to support Trump and other alt-right ideas.I could not disagree more.Young people across the country have trudged through the Great Recession...

Letter to the editor: The Bookie’s history of excellence

OERs (open educational resources) are still far from being implemented at WSU as a whole, but in the meantime there are plenty of options to save on course materials.

Letter to the editor: Democrats and the Khan family

CHUCK VOGELSONG | Riggins, ID

August 24, 2016

In my opinion, the Democratic Party stooped to a new low when they used the Muslim Gold Star Khan family to attack Donald Trump on worldwide TV with slanderous or near-slanderous accusations and misquotes of our Constitution. Gold Star people are, for the most part, untouchable; and everybody knows i...

Letter to the editor: Republicans and Trump

TANNER MORGAN | Walla Walla

June 29, 2016

As a lifelong Republican, I reject Donald Trump and what he stands for: racism, xenophobia, nativism, and contempt for women, the disabled and other groups.Rather than adhere to our party’s conservative principles and state a clear program, he offers a vague vision of “making America great again...

Letter to the editor: gun violence

ZACH WORMGOOR | Pullman

June 22, 2016

In response to the opinion titled “Orlando shooting raises questions about gun violence”:This opinion focused on firearms rather than on the reality of the attacker.It contained a straw man argument against firearms in pointing out that very few firearms are actually used for personal defense. This co...

Alex Caba | (ROTC)

May 18, 2016

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...

Letter to the editor: College Republicans are not hateful

BY JAMES ALLSUP | (President of WSU College Republicans | Students for Trump Sr Advisor)

April 20, 2016

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 HAYLEY HOHMAN | ASWSU Chief of Staff

April 19, 2016

I do not agree with the College Republicans' direction. I acknowledge that I am not currently a member and each president has autonomy over their administration.However, as a former president and conservative I cannot remain silent while our party is hijacked by fear mongers who misrepresent our beliefs. I...

Letter to the editor: Selection of Schulz about more than just athletics

BY JANSEN M. VANDERMEULEN | Student Regent

March 30, 2016

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

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. While the quote was accurate, I completely mischaracterized the confidence I have in my staff.I ...
