If you’re on campus during severe weather, don’t be surprised if Emporia State’s gatekeepers kick you out to lock things up. Campus closed for the first time in university history, as far as anyone can remember, for threatening spring weather on Tuesday. All 3:30 p.m. and later classes and events we... Read more »

Choose with Confidence, graduates

Choose with Confidence, graduates

We are our choices. For me, this year’s choice was “What am I doing after I graduate?” For many months, I was searching for the path I was going to take when I get my degree and am no longer a full-time student. The more choices you have, the better, I told myself. I was patient and I waited. H... Read more »

As the year is coming to a close, I find myself not wanting to go to the Cafeteria or Hornet Express more and more. I don’t want to go for reasons like for the sake of time, because I’m busy with papers and tests. Additionally, none of Sodexo’s food options are really healthy enough. I’m sure so... Read more »

Election Fairness

Election Fairness

Filed under Opinion Columns

The United States election system is a sham that spits in the face of the idea of free and open elections. That might seem like a stretch, however, during this election cycle alone it has been made clear how broken our system has become. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fixable. There are se... Read more »

Another spring season has come and gone for the Emporia State football team. Coming off of the greatest season in the Garin Higgins reign, many questions loomed going into the off-season. But here is what caught my eye in the annual spring game last Saturday. This is an event to try and showcase as much... Read more »

To the Editor, This letter is to address a concern with last week’s issue of The Bulletin, and its article titled, “Jesus Would Weep.” Though it was an opinion piece, it cited “discrimination,” and inferences themes of intolerance for diversity and inclusion by allowing clubs to be selective wi... Read more »

Once Upon a Class

Once Upon a Class

Courtney Evans, Opinion Writer
April 21, 2016
Filed under Opinion Columns

When is Emporia State going to stop focusing on money and image, and, instead,  more on the content and the quality of education? As an English major, I can speak from experience that while there are a lot of regular English classes, there’s not a lot of focused classes. ESU doesn’t offer the... Read more »

I am an agnostic atheist. I can’t say for sure if there is a god or not, but it is my strong belief that “he” doesn’t exist. There are two main examples, here in the U.S., that show how secular citizens have been discriminated against, regardless of how unconstitutional it is. These come in... Read more »

It’s Time to Pay the Athletes

Ace Finch, Sports Editor

Filed under Opinion Columns

I use to believe that athletes shouldn’t be payed to play college sports. Their education is enough, right? They get free better-than-cafeteria food year round, chartered flights, cool gear to wear and a free education. But that just is not enough anymore. I get it. They get more than other student... Read more »

One in three college students suffer from depression. When you’re sitting in class, the person to your left, right or possibly even yourself, may be suffering from an illness that could lead to thoughts of self harm. Suicidal thoughts are most common between the ages of 18-29, and suicide is the second... Read more »

Glorifying Sleeplessness

Glorifying Sleeplessness

Courtney Evans, Opinion Writer
April 14, 2016
Filed under Opinion Columns

It is one thing for a person to acknowledge someone’s hard work. It is, however, another thing to glorify one’s exhaustion that comes from that hard work. You hear it all the time. “Wow that person looks so tired! They must work really hard!” April is certainly that time of year for college stude... Read more »
