The State Auditor’s letter concerning the Administration “Fee” does not save the students any money. The statement that it will is either the result of wishful thinking or the most bold-faced lie I have heard all year. If S&A is no longer charged for services it uses (freeloading, mooching,...

We were 19, living together in Bothell, working minimum wage jobs, just barely paying the bills. I wasn’t on birth control. So when my boyfriend realized that the condom broke, we knew what we had to do. We couldn’t become parents. I mean, he could hardly take care of himself. Read More »...

By DANNY SCHMIDT, editor-in-chief Central Washington University is nationally known for two reasons: The first is our Four Loko incident, leading to the brief, Brett Favre-like retirement of the drink. The second is the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute. Students in the program are able to do what no oth...
