This May, my first year of Trinity comes to a close. Papers from long-forgotten classes will be thrown into the trash, friends will be said goodbye to, a scary-looking food particle from behind the fridge that looks like a squid will finally be exorcised of evil. As I write this article, I’m sitting in the library where I’ve ordered upwards of 100 environmentally-friendly hot beverages and wondering where the time has gone (also, where the...

Winner: Bird Bakery Finalists: Bakery Lorraine, Nothing Bundt Cakes OK, I get it — the cupcakes are delicious. The tables are twee. And the latte is filled with enough sugar to make it more dessert than coffee. But where the hell is Armie Hammer?

Trinity University’s Lennox Seminar lecture series kicked off at the San Antonio Museum of Art with a talk on sexuality in the Roman empire by Caroline Vout, one of the most prolific modern historians of Greek and Roman culture, on Sept. 12.

If you haven’t had a class with Benjamin Stevens, assistant professor of classical studies, get into one as soon as possible. Additionally you should try to go to all of his movie nights, held Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Richardson Communication Center, and listen to his expert and intriguing analysis of great movies. So far, this year hasn’t seen the release of any stand-out sci-fi movies, but a few coming this fall and the...

A large portion of Trinity’s common curriculum system is devoted to something we call Approaches to Creation and Analysis. This section is thoroughly defined on our school’s website: “In order to master the skills of analysis, research, and creation, students should demonstrate the ability to use the disciplinary approaches characteristic of the humanities, arts and creative disciplines, social and behavioral sciences, natural sciences, and quantitative disciplines.” I remember exactly how intimidating Pathways felt as a...
