Intramurals are known as a great way to exercise, socialize with friends and compete against fellow Tigers on campus. Whether it be basketball, soccer, flag football or volleyball, a ton of planning goes into the facilitation of all of the leagues. Different sports require different equipment and different setups, but one thing remains constant: Each sport requires a referee. Referees are crucial to intramurals — they’re needed to enforce the rules of the game, track the score...

Over Christmas break, I had the opportunity to join 15 other Tigers and two faculty members on a two-week study abroad program to London, England. Leading up to the trip, I really didn’t know what to expect. I had never been to Europe, had never experienced truly cold weather and did not know much about England (except that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are adorable). I had so many questions I wanted answered. Over the...

For the last 25 years, Trinity’s Outdoor Recreation (OREC) group has been giving students the opportunity to explore not only the state of Texas, but the entire country.

I have never been to a music festival, so I didn’t really know what to expect. I wasn’t sure what to wear, what to bring or...
