From our humble beginning in 1869, we’ve grown from a small campus in Tehuacana, Texas, to an internationally-recognized institution in an amazing, culturally diverse major city. As the co-chairs, or cheerleaders-in-chief, we are excited to share with you some of what’s planned for calendar year 2019 and to highlight how YOUR student organization, academic unit or campus department can be part of the event.

Over the winter break I spent two weeks in London, during which I attended three football matches and a play in Piccadilly Circus; I also took Blue Badge Tours of Westminster Abbey, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Hampton Court Palace. My time in London, however, was anything but a vacation. While it was an amazing experience, the reason I was in London to was to teach the first two weeks of a Trinity University sport management class....

What I Learned during My Study Abroad Trip This subject might not be expected from a guest faculty column, but this winter break was indeed outside the realm of normal “” at least for me. While there are a few faculty road warriors, the trailblazers of Trinity’s faculty-led study abroad trips, this was a first for me. Let me assure you, it certainly won’t be my last. While many members of the Trinity community were...

Today’s #AskTingleTU column is the second in a four-part series introducing you to the new Center for Experiential Learning and Career Success (The Center). As a reminder, Experiential Learning (EXL) is “hands on learning” or “learning by doing” and it takes numerous forms: course-embedded projects, undergraduate research, service learning and internships. Whereas the first column highlighted the value of internships, today’s focus is on Service Learning. As a quick primer, Trinity students are REALLY good...

Greetings class of 2019! Let me be the first to welcome you to campus. Okay, okay, maybe I’m not the first, but outside of Scuba Steve, I’m definitely the most enthusiastic! WELCOME! See. It’s in all caps with an exclamation point. As I prepared for this article, it dawned on me that it was 24 years ago that I first stepped foot on the skyline campus. Much has happened since 1991, and it is with...

I’m a huge NBA fan, but I’m an even bigger fan of the playoffs. Something about the best in the world, playing their best, brings out the little kid in me. So, in honor of the start of NBA playoffs, this week’s column addresses the question posed by loyal reader, Callum Squires. He asks: “#AskTingleTU Do we need seven game playoff series’ all the way through the NBA postseason?” A great question from a great...

I received some great posts in advance of this week’s #AskTingleTU column.

While those are all great questions, especially the query about NFL in the Gold and Silver state, I’ve decided to...
