Maybe you’ve been there “” god knows I have. A pile of work lying at your side, but just enough time for a quick episode of my latest televised vice. I’ve done the math “” simple really. Of course one hour of an award-winning drama is less schedule damaging than a feature length film. Nevertheless, almost every time I’ve made this decision, it’s ended with me wearily blinking at 3:45 a.m., with bloodshot eyes and...

Trinity University’s Lennox Seminar lecture series kicked off at the San Antonio Museum of Art with a talk on sexuality in the Roman empire by Caroline Vout, one of the most prolific modern historians of Greek and Roman culture, on Sept. 12. She had quite a busy day beforehand, having flown to Texas from the United Kingdom just in time to have a smaller, more specialized discussion with a group of Trinity classics undergraduate students....

Trinity’s annual Welcome Week concert is one of the largest events put on by the university. With performances from high-profile musicians, this event signals the kickoff not only to the academic year, but to the social year, as well. Older students reconnect with their friends at this concert after spending a summer apart; first-years create some of their first new friendships, bonding over their enjoyment “” or maybe lack thereof “” of the year’s headliner....

Classes begin, and if you’re anything like me, you can already feel yourself falling back into your old routines. Sleeping as late as possible before rushing to class, gravitating towards the same three lines in Mabee; as strange as it is to say, with all of the stress of the new semester, it is not that difficult to operate on a kind of “˜autopilot.’ And as anybody who has driven with cruise control can tell...

One of my earliest memories at Trinity was attending an open mic night in the Skyline cafe hosted by the Trinity Review. It was a cozy space, filled with students of all years “” in fact, it was probably the first event I went to that wasn’t focused on acclimation and icebreakers for first-years. What was even more bizarre than being surrounded by so many upperclassmen was that, for some Godforsaken reason, I had decided...

American legend Mark Twain was born in the year 1835, shortly after a long-awaited visit from Halley’s Comet. Twain would later say that he believed that he would die with the comet’s next passing, and he was correct. In 1910, Twain left this mortal realm as he had entered it, beneath the tail of one of the most beautiful phenomena that our universe has to offer. While by no means an American legend, I feel...

I’ll be the first to admit that vegans get more flak than they deserve. Yes, there are some vegans who mistake having a dietary preference for having a personality; but what I’ve found even more annoying than them are the kinds of people who never shut up about how annoying vegans are. Maybe it’s just me, but if I hear one more person say “salad isn’t food, it’s what food eats,” I’ll have no choice...
