As I entered my first year at Trinity, I remember ample discussion around our lack of school spirit. At the time, it didn’t strike me as anything out of the ordinary; the students at my high school had many of the same complaints.

My fellow senator Maddie D’Iorio wrote an opinion column last week highlighting SGA’s “existential problem,” in which she cites the inexperience of “15 college students,” the apathy of the student body and a broken system that encourages overspending.

Breaking down barriers and eliminating gender exclusivity sounds, on paper, like the perfect way to push society towards a more welcoming and diverse environment. That is why many are beginning to advocate for entirely coeducational Greek life. Since I have never personally been a part of Greek life, I started by researching a recent move by another gender-exclusive group with which I was more familiar: The Boy Scouts of America. When I heard the news...

The final issue of the 2017-2018 Trinitonian is here, and as expected it’s full of bittersweet nostalgia as seniors reflect on their memories at Trinity. However, that reflection doesn’t have to start and end with those who are about to graduate. We, who will be staying behind to finish our studies in the upcoming semesters, should take a moment to look at our accomplishments so far and see what we can do to enhance those...
