I decided to do a fall photoshoot on our campus with some Trinity students: sophomore Natasha Muppala and juniors Walker Lands and Eleanor O’Shei. The photoshoot incorporates some of the trends that I wrote about in my previous article, “Fall Fashion for the back-to-school season.” Regardless of it being a sunny and warm day, I did not hesitate to style them in fall classics like knit sweaters, turtlenecks and bomber jackets. They might have complained...

Have you ever dreamed of having your celebrity crush or favorite singer follow you back on Instagram? That happened to sophomore Dinda Lehrman, who got more than just a follow from her role model Tavi Gevinson, the founder of Rookie Mag, an online magazine for young feminists. Back when she was a junior in high school, Lehrman drew a portrait of Gevinson and posted it on Instagram for her followers to see. “I tagged her...

On Aug. 26, Hurricane Harvey struck the coast of Texas, causing major damage to the cities of Rockport, Corpus Christi and Houston. The flooding in Houston especially caught the nation’s attention, as the fourth largest city in America closed all its major highways because they were under water.

Trinity professors brought an audience of more than 400 into the McNay Art Museum last Thursday for the premier of “To Be Honest,” a play that grew out of research conducted in the summer of 2016 led by three Trinity professors: Sarah Beth Kaufman, Habiba Noor and William Christ. The research, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and completed in tandem with students through the Mellon Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program, explored San Antonio’s honest perception of...

Correction: Inessa Kosub was incorrectly identified as “Vanessa Cosub.” San Antonio’s contemporary art community is growing thanks to art galleries like Blue Star Contemporary Arts, an arts complex which is located in the heart of Southtown. “It used to be a place where they made ice,” said Deliasofia Zacarias, a senior at Trinity who interned at Blue Star this past summer. For almost 30 years, this gallery has been showcasing not only local contemporary art,...

As millennials, we have the habit of having our phones or laptops to our faces all the time. This isn’t a great, generation-wide habit, as you may have heard your parents tell you a million times. Technological devices can be helpful when googling “how to spell Mississippi”, which I still do not know how to spell. [Editors’ note: We got you.] But they can also work as a distraction, a big time consumer and, most...

Barbaloots, Dr. Seuss’ friendly tree-dwellers, have been a part of our pop culture for decades. Now it’s time to become familiar with the half-Trinity, all-San Antonio indie rock band that named itself after the cute bear-like creatures. “I’m afraid we’re going to get sued,” said Dominic Walsh, drummer for the band. Based in San Antonio, the Barbaloots’ sound can be compared to bands like Pavement, an alternative-rock group from the 1990s, and modern alternative bands...
