Spain had a very tumultuous summer, starting with a very sudden change in government. With this new government came a new prime minister, Parliament and policies. However, it also came with a very quiet, yet sudden, change in editorial leadership of the country’s most popular newspaper. That’s suspicious. Over the course of one week in June, Spain’s Parliament determined the Popular Party (Spain’s party in power) had committed fraud. Parliament then decided to hold a...

Before 1980, Trinity was known for its tennis team, not its academic programs, like it is today. The future for Trinity looked bleak. Enrollment for many programs was down, and the university was struggling to keep up with the financial needs of struggling programs. Then, about 35 years ago, Trinity did some rebranding.
