Editor's Note: Much of this column involves inside jokes to former members of the staff and are not meant to be disrespectful in any way. Back when I was a weird combination of not-quite-an-intern-anymore but past a freelancer because of how much time I spend in the office, my editor semi-jokingly...

This past semester was something of a whirlwind. The time just flew by and now it is almost graduation. Through all the craziness, one of my favorite experiences here at UW-W was being part of the Royal Purple. At first, I was nervous about participating. I really did not know what to expect. I was not sure what I wan...

It’s pretty wild that that I’m graduating in a couple weeks. Part of me still can’t believe that It’s finally happening. I’m still not completely sure what my future will look like, but I’m so excited and proud of this accomplishment. Also I’m just relieved I made it. It wasn’t always easy and ...

You know you have a good job when being sick just means you’re sad to miss work.   Over the last year (has it only been a year?),  The Royal Purple has become a second home to me. The people I have worked with are entirely responsible for many wonderful college memories. I would like to take ...

Looking back on my career at UW-Whitewater, it definitely was not the most conventional method ever. I started in the business school, but after my first semester of my junior year, I felt I needed a change of scene. I switched to Journalism and never once thought that I could actually enjoy my schoo...

Editor-in-Chief ignites spark before exit

May 3, 2017

By Ashley McCallum   A former Royal Purple Editor-in-Chief once wrote that this job is about putting out flames and being a firefighter, but I disagree. This job is about igniting sparks. When I assumed the position as co Editor-in-Chief, I came in with to-do list longer than my 5’4...

  After two years on the Royal Purple’s editorial staff, it’s finally time to say goodbye. It’s exciting to begin a new chapter as a young journalist, but my departure also comes with mixed emotions. I still remember my first section meeting as a sports writer, trying to inject my opi...

  I never knew that my college experience would be coming to a close so soon. To tell you the truth it hasn’t even hit me yet.  These past four years have gone by so quickly. But before I leave, there are so many people I need to thank. To God: Without you I would have never made i...
