EditorialHome is where the brick is

This week at the Trinitonian, it’s our housing issue. You might wonder why we would sacrifice a few pages of our precious editorial space to talk about … buildings. The reason why we want to talk about housing is because it is a central part of our university life. Whether we’re complaining about our dorms or discovering the difficulties of living off campus, housing is an impossible issue to avoid for us college students. One...

“As nice as it is to have you all here, I probably won’t see most of you after February.” Kezia Nyarko, junior and president of Trinity Diversity Connection (TDC), said this to a room of over 100 people who attended their event, How To Be An Ally For Black Students at a PWI, earlier this month. Kezia meant that as Black History Month comes to a close, she expects the attendance at TDC events to...

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s our Love and Sex issue. Last year, our writers wrote all about sex and not much about love at all. They delved into the culture around casual sex, lube-tasting, kinks and more. But this cuffing season, the Trinitonian has lots to say about love. If you’re curious about all things love-related, turn to page eight to read more. In addition to our regular staff writers...

This year, Trinity reaches its sesquicentennial. And we’ve come a long way. As university historian Douglas Brackenridge mentioned in his column last week, only 502 students graduated from Trinity in its first 50 years. Since 2005, Trinity has graduated an average of more than 600 students per year. Trinity enrolls roughly four times as many students now than it did when the university celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1919. In the early 1970s, discussion of...

Welcome back to campus, Tigers. After what was hopefully a peaceful and relaxing winter break, you’re back at Trinity with your favorite friends, professors, Aramark employees and exes. We’ve got a few resolutions for this year, and maybe you do, too. As you might’ve noticed, we’ve done a print redesign to freshen up for the new year. We’ve got new features (like a highly requested crossword puzzle), a new masthead and more consistent typography. If...

EditorialSo long, 2018

November 29, 2018351 min

We’ve finally made it. The fall semester is coming to an end along with 2018. We’ve gone through a lot this year as a campus and a nation. Before we hunker down in the library and stress out over our finals, let’s take a minute to reflect on what we’ve experienced during this long year. The start of 2018 was marked with a tragedy on Trinity’s campus. We mourned the loss of sophomore Robert Foye...

EditorialSGA elections matter too

November 14, 2018101 min

The U.S. just saw the greatest voter turnout for midterm elections in over a century. People are starting to come out to the polls in waves like never before. This amount of civic engagement is exciting across the board. We can only hope that this energy persists into future elections. While we’re still caught up in the fever of the midterm elections, let’s not forget about the ongoing elections happening right on this campus: our...
