Compensate resident advisers for longer hours than required

February 28, 2019

Resident Advisers at Washington State University should be compensated for the number of hours they work, not just through housing prices. RAs are compensated with room and board, but the time they spend working exceeds the value of room and board fees. RAs are expected to work at least 20 hours a...

Fill the Pullman campus with local artwork

Fill the Pullman campus with local artwork

Across campus, towering empty walls fit to be decorated have remained barren for years. WSU should take advantage of this open space and decorate them with the work of local and student artists.

Give research animals chances at homes through adoption

February 27, 2019

Facilities using cats and dogs as research animals need to allow these animals every chance at adoption — in all of the U.S., not just in Washington or at WSU. If it’s not essential to euthanize these animals, it shouldn’t be done. Dogs and cats that are used for research purposes at public...

There are programs set in place to mentor and assist Latino students, but there are not enough multicultural faculty at WSU to devote enough time and effort to these students. Latino students in Washington need support as one of many minority groups at WSU that don’t often have reinforcement or...

Surge of landfill waste needs to be handled

ALIVIA HILLER, Evergreen columnist

February 20, 2019

In the U.S., we don’t typically see what happens to our trash after we throw it away. Managed more for convenience than sustainability, waste is shipped to landfills all over the world and dumped just out of sight. However, by 2030, China’s Green Fence policy will displace over 111 metric tons...
