Apparently the ASEWU doesn’t get what they want either, as certain officials have expressed their displeasure about The Easterner reporting on the idea of an athletics fee, calling it an embellishment and simply not true in their report to the Board of Trustees.
It’s easy to be a leader when things are going well, but true leadership is something that can only be tested when times get tough. ASEWU President Evan Buelt has shown his exceptional character through some of the most trying times of student government and its members.
With this being the last issue of the year, The Easterner’s staff decided on the top 10 stories that affected our campus. These were issues and events that ranged from tragedy to triumph, athletics to student government, weather to irate Montana Grizzly fans(!?). They all had something in common though: in one way or another, they still managed to have some significant connection to Eastern Washington University and its students.
You know what I love about sports? There’s always a halftime. Can you imagine if weddings gave you the chance to run to the fridge to get a beer? Or sneaking off for a bathroom break during a root canal? It would make life infinitely more bearable. However, since sports is its own little self-contained world, the innovativeness of halftime does not overspill its bounds.
Thanks to my wonderful class scheduling and study habits (Whoa, re-runs of “American Gladiators” is on? No need to study for tomorrow’s history test), I’ve spent five glorious years at Eastern Washington University. Five years. That’s roughly a quarter of my life.
