Photo by Julia Weis The start of the semester is the perfect time to begin your spring cleaning. If you’re like me, Green Goolia, you might wonder if cleaning has to mean a million different fancy spray bottles with chemicals you can’t pronounce. I’m here to tell you, in part IV of the Green Goolia series, that it doesn’t! Whether your desire to clean out your shelves and closet comes from the Kondo craze that’s...

There are many reasons why students visit Counseling Services; anxiety is often one of them. Students frequently come to me after having received a whole host of mixed messages. Most are aware of the rising national prevalence of anxiety among college students. As a result, they receive messages about “self-care” and “making mental health a priority.” On the other hand, students are told to expect anxiety, to tolerate it and — for some — to...

Recently, while reading “Fault Lines: A History of the United States since 1974,” a new book by Kevin M. Kruse and Julian Zelizer, professors of history at Princeton University, I was struck by the absence of Native voices in their discussion of modern U.S. political history. While Kruse and Zelizer’s new book is excellent, the absence of Native experiences and contributions to U.S. political history in their book’s narrative reflects a broad tendency among U.S....

A new year marks old disordered eating habits masked as “healthy eating.” Every year until this year, my resolution was to lose weight. It’s important to note, however, that I have never faced weight discrimination in my life. Instead, it’s been an internal struggle that I’ve faced as a result of misogyny both in my house and in society. I used to enjoy engaging in sports and exercise without thinking about how it was going...

When I told my boyfriend that I was Netflix-binging a show about cleaning and organizing, he thought I was crazy. It might seem odd, yes, that one could be entertained by watching people throw away the old junk they no longer need and begin folding their clothes vertically (a method which has definitely changed my life), but I’m not alone. Marie Kondo’s “Tidying Up” has taken the Internet by storm and has gained countless fans...

With the new year quickly approaching, I have spent a lot of time reflecting on the past year. As many of you can probably relate to, I feel as if being in college has lent itself to self-growth and maturation, often in ways that are wholly unexpected. Along with this evolution of self, I believe, comes more awareness of the world around us and how the choices we make affect others. Many today look to...

Trinity students know the importance of getting real-world experience and exposure outside of the classroom. But, for some majors, what “exposure” means can be totally unexpected. For students interested in Earth sciences, getting practical experience could mean spending a Saturday morning getting dirty, crawling through dark, underground passages. That’s exactly what several Trinity students did during a caving trip guided by Richard Silver, one of Trinity’s awesome staff members. A veteran caver himself, Richard presented...
