May marks the end of the first year of Trinity students living in the City Vista apartments on the corner of Hildebrand and Devine. Trinity purchased City Vista in January 2017. In an email to the campus community, Danny Anderson, president of the university, explained that the university prioritized student feedback when making the decision to purchase the apartments. “Since I became president at Trinity, I have listened to students. One message that I heard...

Reading days this year extend from next Monday to next Tuesday this year. These days give students a chance to prepare for finals without the interruption of classes. According to the Student Handbook, no assignments can be due and no exams can be given on these days or the two class days that precede reading days. “Since reading days are for the purpose of providing students with study time prior to final examinations, no classes...

This May, my first year of Trinity comes to a close. Papers from long-forgotten classes will be thrown into the trash, friends will be said goodbye to, a scary-looking food particle from behind the fridge that looks like a squid will finally be exorcised of evil. As I write this article, I’m sitting in the library where I’ve ordered upwards of 100 environmentally-friendly hot beverages and wondering where the time has gone (also, where the...

When students choose to transfer from Trinity to other schools, where do they go? Eric Maloof, vice president for Enrollment Management in the admissions department, explained some data collected by Trinity’s Institutional Research and Effectiveness and the National Student Clearinghouse about students who transfer schools. A cohort study of the class of 2020 found that of the 73 students who left after their fall 2017 semester, 51 students (70 percent) went to public institutions, seven students...

During the fall 2017 semester, 64 percent of Counseling Services student clients were female. This is the same percentage given in the Center for Collegiate Mental Health’s 2017 Annual Report. While the university has a relatively equal gender ratio — 53 percent of students are female, and 47 percent are male — women are more likely to go to Counseling Services. A reason for this may be cultural stigma against men seeking help with managing mental...
