In the past couple weeks, there has been a lot of discussion in the NBA world about player loyalty. For me, the concept of player loyalty to a team or organization is not as opaque as many make it out to be. Not every situation is the same and each player has a different rationale, yet the media, the fans or both will vilify the player or craft narratives that don’t address the actual reasons...

People often ask us about the business behind the newspaper. Where do we get our money? Is it hard? We’re taught in our media classes that the newspaper industry is dying. Is that true for college papers, too? To start from the top, we are different from University-Sponsored Organizations in that the majority of our budget comes from advertising revenue and subscriptions, while the rest comes from the Student Activity Fee.

I started watching soccer when I started playing in eighth grade. The game was confusing and long, but one thing I noticed beyond the game is just how many ads there were all over the stadium and on the players’ shirts.

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. While senator D’Iorio brings up some very important points, I disagree with some of her opinions on the nature of SGA spending and I think that some of her suggestions are misguided. First, I wholeheartedly agree that...

This year has already seen one of the biggest superhero movies ever, “Black Panther”, hit the screen and smash multiple records. The film has already made over $1.3 billion dollars and had one of the biggest opening weekends to date. But the barrage of blockbuster movies doesn’t stop there: the new “Avengers” film is coming out this Friday and on May 25, the newest “Star Wars” film “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” will be diluting movie-goer’s summer movie...

Trinity prides itself on providing an education that leads students to think critically about the world, themselves and their role in the world. Yet, two years ago when I was a sophomore, I failed to meet the promise of that education when a friend asked me what I wanted from my life. My response? A big television, maybe a lake house, but more than anything else, enough money to live comfortably, and by live comfortably...
