Tackling the hard-hitting questions

Be on the lookout for the upcoming issue of The Eastern Echo, on newsstands tomorrow morning. The paper will answer the following burning questions (and probably raise some as well): How does managing editor Al Willman feel about EMU football coach Ron English? How does opinions columnist Jumanah Saadeh feel about gender roles? How does comics editor feel about cats? Who earned the coveted first-ever “Cartoonist of the Month” award? Did the newspaper really dedicate an entire page to the “Breaking Bad” finale? What do EMU students really think about Miley Cyrus’ infamous “Wrecking Ball” video? Is there hope for Eminem? And the answer to the usual question – what’s going on around our lovely campus? Remember to check the website often for new updates, online exclusives and more.
