Political Cartoon

My Hometown of Oso, Washington

If you had told me 10 years ago the small mountain town I grew up in would be the center of the nation’s attention, I would have brushed you off as crazy and dismissed your ramblings as nonsense.

Well, in fact, that’s exactly what happened.

Evaluations Should be Mandatory

At the end of every semester comes an important, but sometimes overlooked, aspect to the education process: course evaluations.

Should Guns Be a School Supply?- Guns are a right, not a necessity

Gun control has been a hot topic lately. It seems every year there are more and more tragedies around the country involving very violent mass shootings. The constant debates over laws are all over the country, and it comes as no surprise that there is a frenzy of emotion from both sides.

Should Guns Be a School Supply?- You don’t shoot me, I don’t shoot you

This isn’t an easy thing to convince people of, but with the intention of keeping people from shooting up a college campus, the people who walk through its breezeways and sit in its classrooms need to come to class just as armed and ready as Seung-Hui Cho was on Apr. 16 ‘07 when he killed 32 people and wounded 17 others at Virginia Tech.

People who argue for banning the sale and possession of firearms like to ignore this fact, that in the world, and in the U.S., and even in the city of Shoreline, people are in possession of firearms.

10 Things I Hate About You

A list of things people do on campus that really tick me off!

Talking in class like somehow no one else can hear you.
Because we can all hear you no matter how quietly you think you’re whispering. And is now really the time to bust out the Nutella and graham crackers? “The teacher’s trying to teach and students are having side conversations. Sometimes it’s about the test next week, but it’s not about what’s being taught right now. It makes me more stressed out,” said SCC student Michelle Frazier.

Online dating shouldn’t be a taboo

Wouldn’t it be nice to just already know what you have in common on your first date rather than trying to fish for conversation? Online dating is an efficient way to meet your future partner. Despite being an established way of meeting people, there’s still judgement felt in the room when someone admits to dating online.

The fun is in getting to know someone

Online dating. It’s easy, quick, and gives instant gratification, just like a one night stand. The only difference between the two, well besides the sex, is that the “getting to know each other” part already happened by reading that person’s profile.

Battle of Parking Never Ends for Students Here at SCC

It’s 9:10 a.m., class starts in 20 minutes and instead of arriving to class early, you have to spend this extra time just to find a parking space. Driving around the parking lot, trying to beat others to the next open space is frustrating, especially when you keep having to drive past multiple open spaces that are for faculty only.

A Clash of Texts, Digital or Tangible?- Digital: Think Outside the Books

As we become more dependent on technology, people are faced with a choice: which is better, a physical copy of something or its digital counterpart? From a college student’s standpoint, two Ebbtide editors are going head-to-head to discuss the issue pertaining to old fashioned text books versus new-age electronic books.
