She had plans to join a sorority. She expected her psychology degree would...

For Trinity sophomores Ian Dill and Ansh Khullar, spring break was no break at all. Instead of kicking back and watching TV or going on vacation with their families, the two students spent almost a full week on campus, waking up to breakfast tacos and working long days to prepare for the national debate tournament. The team’s primary task over the break was preparing for the final, national tournament at Kansas State University this Friday,...

Picking someone to live with is no insignificant task. In fact, it can be kind of terrifying — think about all those couples who date for years but still hesitate to pack their boxes and move into the same small apartment. Even your best friend might have a few strange habits: What if they leave rotting food on the floor? What if they watch football games in the room, yelling at the screen all the...

Sitting in the waiting room at Counseling Services, it’s easy to see why so many students will seek emotional help here sometime during their Trinity years. Before the row of chairs is a wall of pamphlets, offering advice on handling every life problem you can imagine. Do you have eating problems? There’s a pamphlet for that.

Alexandra Parris began crocheting in November of 2016. Her great-uncle had recently passed away, and she was wandering the bright aisles of Walmart late at night, looking for groceries and perhaps something to do on the plane ride to her great-uncle’s funeral. Parris, now a sophomore, packed her cart full of snacks. Then, a crochet hook and a ball of yarn caught her eye. She figured, why not? She’d never been much of an art...

In the late afternoon of last Thursday, Jan. 18, the Skyline Room filled with friends, family and others who were impacted by the life of Robert Foye.

He was widely known and respected throughout the Trinity community.  Foye died as a result of experimentation with a whippit, a small container of nitrous oxide that is intended for use in...

Junior English major Collin McGrath won’t soon forget the day back in high school when he and his younger sister were reclining on the couch, recovering from a particularly gruesome episode of the anime series “Attack on Titan.” McGrath said they should put on something happy. His sister’s response would change his life: “How about ‘My Little Pony’?” McGrath shrugged and let her put it on. He wasn’t particularly interested in the show, but he...

Daniela Montúfar Soria never thought she’d be walking into the financial aid office asking for more money. Her father’s job in Mexico had been stable, and the university had given her sufficient scholarship funds so she had always been able to afford tuition. However, after Trump became president, Montúfar Soria suddenly faced a problem many international students will encounter during their college years: the value of her country’s currency dipped. “Trinity suddenly cost 25 percent...
