So long D2L, hello Canvas

So long D2L, hello Canvas

Those of us returning to campus this semester have had to adapt to a change that left many irritated and worried: D2L was replaced by something called “Canvas” over the summer. Since “Desire-2-Learn” was the primary way students could access course materials, submit assignments, check grades...

A misguided public health concern over vaccinations has led to the quarantine of seven schools and two universities, a 300% increase in measles cases worldwide and the greatest number of measles cases in the U.S. since its elimination over 19 years ago. The anti-vax movement has begun to make its...

UW Oshkosh’s final play of the season opened Thursday night as a few planes coincidentally flew low over the Fredric March Theater minutes before the show began. “Boeing Boeing,” a play about as bouncy and playful as the title itself, takes place in Paris in the 1960s, following a bachelor named...

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

Sarah Marx, student

May 9, 2019

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

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...

#RefusePlasticStraws, #LastPlasticStraw and #NoStrawPlease are all sustainability movements to help protect our oceans from the harm of plastic straws.

However, the student body as a whole seems to be uncertain of who gets to see the results of these surveys or how effective they are at shaping instructor performances. “We...

UWO must budget for inclusivity

Alexus Olsen, Columnist

May 9, 2019

“Make sure you grab your pepper spray, make sure you walk around campus with a buddy and lock your doors, no matter what time of day it is.” As a student starting school at UW-Milwaukee, these were the type of reminders I would get from my family members on a daily basis. It comes as no surprise...

On April 15, just one week before Earth Day, public comments were quietly closed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to eliminate protections for over half of the nation’s wetlands. The proposal, which the Trump Administration supports, would change the scope of waters that fall...

What it’s like reporting at a Trump rally

Christina Basken, Columnist (News Editor)

May 2, 2019

This was my first time reporting at a presidential event. To put it simply, what an experience. I attended a press conference at the Green Bay Labor Temple at 10 a.m. that day. I met a radio station reporter there whose first words to me were, “Have you reported at a Trump event before?” I said...
