Sapolsky is a primatologist and neurologist who studies groups of baboons and levels of stress. His visit to Trinity was part of the Distinguished Scientist Lecture Series, which brings in prominent scientists to discuss their work and studies in the field and laboratory. In...

Last week, students received a campus wide email about a course called Dramaturgy. Both the word and the course are unfamiliar to many, and they need some explanation. After sitting in on a class and talking to students and the professor, I have a much better grasp on the concept.

Part of the life of a university professor is the opportunity, though infrequent, to travel around the world for the university or to recharge and learn in one’s field. Like professors at other universities, many Trinity professors have had this opportunity and have learned several useful lessons in their travels. Lawrence Kim, associate professor of classical studies, traveled to Germany last year to study how the ancient Greeks viewed their own past. He went with...

The AT&T Center for Learning and Technology (CLT) has a new piece of technology that can do just that. The drone is controlled remotely and is primarily used for video purposes. It is special because it can get overhead shots of campus and other locations that could not...
