Hopefully, you all were able to survive the traumatic and wonderful experience of Halloween at Trinity University. The passing of this momentous holiday means that we now find ourselves in that much dreaded in-between time known as November. Christmas is a month away, Halloween revelry has passed us by and we are currently plunged into the depths of academic pursuits (as well as the occasional social outing).  While this temporary lull in activity should provide...

It’s about to be my favorite time of year again, gals and ghouls. It’s that time of year when girls dress like slutty kittens or Crayola© crayons, where guys dress up like sport fanatics for their favorite team (i.e. Cardinals) and where black and orange can be worn without judgment.

However, I’ve decided once again to do what I want and instead have chosen to ponder questions aloud that have pervaded my mind over the past few weeks. First: Who are all these new people walking around campus? Second: Why are they here? Third: Why do they...

I suppose that, as a college senior, I should have acquired enough wisdom by now to have maintained a successful academic career, a busy romantic life and an exciting social calendar. But, in truth, I still wait until the night before tests to study, have trouble talking to members of the opposite sex without coming off as a complete idiot, and often spend my nights on Netflix watching “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” That disclaimer...
