Lawful Good: Murchison No longer HOPE Hall but still has a residual air of once having been tended by our community’s greatest servants. Has an elevator that connects lower and upper campus, meaning that the hall itself literally provides a community service. Neutral Good: North The great myth of upperclassmen dorms, supposedly existing somewhere north of South. Dorms for anyone who watched the first Harry Potter movie & thought “wow that broom closet looks luxe.”...

For the first two acts of “Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play,” leaves cover the floor of the Stieren Theatre’s stage. The clearing of the leaves at the start of act three signifies to the audience that the play is about to change. The apocalyptic fog covering the first two acts has lifted in the fictional 75-year time jump between act two and act three, revealing the mythologized donut from both “The Simpsons” and Trinity Theatre’s marketing...

  The Lunar New Year festivities filled Laurie Auditorium last Friday with a mixture of dance, orchestra and singing, incorporating both modern and traditional elements of Asian cultures to ring in the Year of the Dog. “This year I felt like we struck a really great balance between great coordinating and really good performances,” said Alex Motter, lead coordinator of Lunar New Year and president of the Vietnamese Student Association. (Motter is a member of...

“Personally, I believe the boundary between love and anti-love is always fluctuating,” said Courtney Justus, senior and event planner in charge of the Trinity Review’s Love & Anti-Love Poetry Contest. “Even in love poems or songs, you get a reaction to a negative event. Sometimes love poems are downright sad, but sometimes you get a glimmer of hope.” The contest brought an intimate group of performers and spectators together last Friday in the Chapman Gold...

“I’ve been thinking about what poetry can do in this time of rupture,” said Denice Frohman, poet and latest performer in the MAS Álvarez Seminar when describing her approach to writing in this political climate. The readings selected for the event all showed poetry’s power in times of adversity, especially the power of humor, which Frohman’s infectious energy put on full display. A packed house welcomed Frohman to the Holt Center on Thursday, Feb. 1,...

When this year’s Academy Award nominations were announced last Tuesday, it was hard not to feel excited. Greta Gerwig became the fifth woman to be nominated for best director, Jordan Peele became the fifth black person to be nominated for best director and Sufjan Stevens became the first Sufjan Stevens to be nominated for an Oscar. No matter how long, dreary and self-congratulatory the actual ceremony is liable to be, it’s difficult not to hope that maybe,...

In Julia Poage’s piece, “The America I’ve Inherited,” one of her three graphic novel-style drawings exhibited in the “Mini,” she defines the phrase the ‘1.5 generation.’ This term generally refers to Holocaust studies, but she applies it to those who were alive when 9/11 happened, but were too young to fully process the violence. “I’m applying this term to help me figure out what the 1.5 generation of the violent events that shattered 21st-century America...

For 22 seasons, it’s been a fact universally acknowledged that a group of 20-something women will enter an inordinately staged mansion in a fruitless plea for the titular Bachelor. More interestingly, for more than 15 years, hordes of Americans have tuned in with their friends to watch the show with a varying mix of sincerity and irony. While I had never watched “The Bachelor” before this season, I had heard so much about it within...
