Accessibility is one of the most important issues in my life. Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with a muscle disorder, one which causes me to experience barriers to mobility and chronic back pain.

Even though Trinity’s official mascot is LeeRoy the Tiger, for a while in 2012 there was another furry face on campus that was almost as familiar: Jurgens the dog, an explosives detection trainee adopted jointly by Campus Publications and David Tuttle, dean of students. It all started when Katharine Martin, coordinator of Student Activities and Student Edited Publications, brought one of the puppies that students were posing with in yearbook photos to David Tuttle, dean...

This informal setup usually happens throughout the week until Friday, when the Noon Ball...

Trinity students and faculty met in the Waxahachie Room on the evening of Oct. 17 for a discussion on the conversation of race within sports to talk about the controversy of athletes kneeling in protest during the national anthem. The conversation came as a result of a discussion between David Tuttle, dean of students, and members of Trinity’s Black Student Union (BSU), who met with Tuttle for a dinner at his home in late September. “When I...
