The highway to commuter success

The highway to commuter success

Julia Thompson, Student

October 3, 2019

As the new semester begins and I get back into the habit of leaving my Appleton residence at 7 o’clock each morning, I’d like to steer the campus’ attention to an often forgotten group of students: commuters. Currently at UW Oshkosh, only 15% of first- and second-year students choose not to...

Trump’s trade war escalating between the U.S. and China

Sarah Marx, student

Everyone loses in a trade war, let’s not pretend otherwise. While some think putting tariffs on imported Chinese goods is a smart idea, it actually harms more than it helps. This tariff doesn’t only harm Chinese exporters, it hurts companies that are importing the goods, it hurts the consumers of...

Respecting Native American culture

Lydia Westedt, student

May 8, 2019

A couple of years ago, my dad showed me something very important. After learning I was transfering to Oshkosh, he strongly recommended that I watch an old documentary about the founding and history of the city of Oshkosh. “I’ll sit through this to humor him,” I thought. Looking back on this...

Ditch the straw, save the earth

Lexi Wojcik, student

May 8, 2019

#RefusePlasticStraws, #LastPlasticStraw and #NoStrawPlease are all sustainability movements to help protect our oceans from the harm of plastic straws. UW Oshkosh has a focus on sustainability but is not participating in the movement to reduce the use of plastic straws! Baskets of straws, jars of...

Dear Editor, As I have grown up, the world has become much more reliant on technology than ever before. People of all ages have become so dependent on their phones, computers and gaming systems that it has become a social norm to be constantly scrolling your phone or playing mindless games. While...

Dear Editor, Smartphones have been prominent for around 10 years now. The idea that a computer can fit in the palm of your hand is no longer so astonishing. The majority of Americans are smartphone owners, 77 percent to be exact according to the Pew Research Center. Is this incredible access to technology...

Dear Editor, I have been at UW Oshkosh for six semesters and have not had an African-American professor. I am a black student with an African-American studies minor but have been limited in the opportunity to speak to African-American academic personnel about common ideologies. Don’t get me...

As a white male in America, I am mostly blinded by real-world issues due to the white privilege I was born with. As obvious as it sounds, we do not choose our race, religion or gender at birth. Everyone is given individual traits at birth that are unique to them. As I grow older and start to realize...

Dear Editor, Robots are great, aren’t they? They clean your floors, make your coffee and take your jobs … wait, what? Yes, you heard me right, they take our jobs. However, you shouldn’t blame them for taking our jobs because aren’t they just shifting the jobs? Think about it. Sure, robots...

Drink dairy milk and help out our local farming families

Samantha Huerth

February 14, 2019

Imagine waking up at 4 a.m. to milk hundreds of cows, repeating it at 4 p.m., and starting over the next day, 365 days a year. This is the life of many people in the dairy industry. Today, dairy farmers are making little to no money because of the rising demand for almond milk. I grew up in a small,...
