Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s our Love and Sex issue. Last year, our writers wrote all about sex and not much about love at all. They delved into the culture around casual sex, lube-tasting, kinks and more. But this cuffing season, the Trinitonian has lots to say about love. If you’re curious about all things love-related, turn to page eight to read more. In addition to our regular staff writers...

This year, Trinity reaches its sesquicentennial. And we’ve come a long way. As university historian Douglas Brackenridge mentioned in his column last week, only 502 students graduated from Trinity in its first 50 years. Since 2005, Trinity has graduated an average of more than 600 students per year. Trinity enrolls roughly four times as many students now than it did when the university celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1919. In the early 1970s, discussion of...

Welcome back to campus, Tigers. After what was hopefully a peaceful and relaxing winter break, you’re back at Trinity with your favorite friends, professors, Aramark employees and exes. We’ve got a few resolutions for this year, and maybe you do, too. As you might’ve noticed, we’ve done a print redesign to freshen up for the new year. We’ve got new features (like a highly requested crossword puzzle), a new masthead and more consistent typography. If...

We’ve finally made it. The fall semester is coming to an end along with 2018. We’ve gone through a lot this year as a campus and a nation. Before we hunker down in the library and stress out over our finals, let’s take a minute to reflect on what we’ve experienced during this long year. The start of 2018 was marked with a tragedy on Trinity’s campus. We mourned the loss of sophomore Robert Foye...

The U.S. just saw the greatest voter turnout for midterm elections in over a century. People are starting to come out to the polls in waves like never before. This amount of civic engagement is exciting across the board. We can only hope that this energy persists into future elections. While we’re still caught up in the fever of the midterm elections, let’s not forget about the ongoing elections happening right on this campus: our...

Midterms are done and over with, and not the ones your professors are assigning. It’s election week, which means Trinity’s campus is torn apart. Whether you’re celebrating a win, mourning a loss, or couldn’t care less (start caring), there’s no denying this Midterm season stood out from previous years. Vox estimates that the voter turnout for this year’s midterms shattered previous midterm records, with early estimates coming in at about 114 million voters (compared to...

As a reader, you might not always consider how you are in a symbiotic relationship with your college newspaper. A lot of our work depends on you, our readers. It’s not always easy to be your source of campus news. How well we are able to reflect the campus culture and environment depends on how you interact with us, especially in regards to how you respond to interviews and questions. We want to emphasize the...

We’ve been surrounded by social media for our entire lives. Facebook was started before some first-years and sophomores were able to even comprehend what a computer is. We have not experienced a time without instant and direct connectivity to our friends and peers. We’ve even been called Screenagers. The New York Times published a story about how Apple’s new “Screen Time” feature worked and how much the author’s teenager used her phone. Unsurprisingly, the time...
