College is full of firsts: first time being away from home, first time sharing a room and first time having unlimited access to Mabee’s chocolate chip cookies. College is a major change, and despite a one week orientation, many freshmen find themselves lost trying to navigate their transition from high school to college.

If you walk into any professional or minor league sporting event, chances are you’ll hear loud, upbeat music blaring over the speakers. You’ll hear music during timeouts, in between innings, during the halftime performance and as players step up to the plate. You might even see Russell Westbrook dancing, if you happen to be at an OKC game. Why is that? It’s because music in sport is important. As an athlete, I can say that...

While the time commitment portion of sports might eventually come to a close, the memories made and lessons taught through sports are timeless. Many student athletes have broken records here at Trinity, and then moved on to break records in...
