When I entered Trinity as a first year, I felt bombarded by the message that we first years were about to receive the keys to success. A plethora of course offerings? Check. Endless support, both academic and personal? Double check. Boundless resources? Another check””unless I wanted something from ScienceDirect three hours before a deadline, but that was my fault. Trinity laid it all out for us: follow these steps, join these groups, take these chances...

They may have been around since the 90s, but OK Go’s sound is as fresh and exciting as ever. You’ll remember them from their hits and viral videos for “A Million Ways” and “Here It Goes Again,” but it’s time for an update. In October, they released their latest record, “Hungry Ghosts.” The band is currently on tour in support of the album, complete with a stop in San Antonio on April 20. Before you...

Austin might get all of the accolades for being our great state’s hub for live music, but San Antonio is developing its own music scene. This weekend marks an exciting time for San Antonio music: on April 10 and 11, the Maverick Music Festival will take place in La Villita. For the second year, San Antonio will host a variety of artists on three stages, with music spanning genres from hip-hop and pop to indie...

It’s one of the most exciting times of the year in San Antonio. When April rolls around, everyone knows Fiesta is just around the corner, and the festive atmosphere pervades the whole city. For those who haven’t encountered Fiesta before, the sudden onslaught of colorful streamers and flowers and medals can seem strange. If you’re among that group, I promise it’s worth it””Fiesta is actually an awesome holiday. Here are some highlights that the new-to-Fiesta...

We all have our guilty pleasures, and one of mine is “Archer.” With its brilliant animations and a spot-on, snarky script, this show is ridiculous, raunchy, irreverent and””let’s be honest””completely hilarious. As soon as the retro-styled, 007-esque opening credits start rolling, I know I’m about to get just about everything I want from a comedy. And (confession) I don’t even like that many animated comedies; they tend to annoy me a bit. “Archer,” though, satisfies...

It’s one of those times that every on-campus student dreads: with the long Easter weekend, the entire food game changes. Mabee’s hours suddenly transform, and if you thought you were going to get that late-night taco from Coates, you can think again. Even your access to the POD becomes severely limited. Fear not, though: it’s possible to survive the Easter Hunger Games. My first (and somewhat obvious) suggestion would be to keep yourself updated on...

So, I’m a self-proclaimed introvert. Don’t get me wrong””I love people (mostly), but social interactions wear me out. After a night of socializing (or even a long day of classes and meetings), I have to take some time to recharge before returning to the world of extroverts. If this sounds like you, read on. All of us introverts may have different methods for recharging, but I’ve got a few musical suggestions that might help you...

So it’s time for spring break. Your friends are sharing their travel plans””beach trips, going home, whatever””but, for any number of reasons, you’ve ended up staying in San Antonio for this much-needed holiday. If this prospect seems like cause for despair, don’t worry! You’ll be surprised by how many things you can do in and around town; here are a few suggestions for making the most of your San Antonio spring break. There’s an incredible...
