My good friend and archenemy Manfred Wendt wrote an article a couple of Trinitonians ago calling for another mandatory great books course, namely with more Plato and Shakespeare (assumedly metonymically, with Plato and Shakespeare standing in for a wide range of great Western authors). I typically would think that a response to a response to an article is stretching it a bit because I don’t want to treat our school newspaper like a Facebook comment...

Respected Friends, Colossians 2:8 instructs us to “be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you through an empty and deceptive philosophy, according to human tradition, according to the elementary principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” I was brought up believing that to love Jesus is to be conservative, but as I have grown closer to God, I have begun to see that much of the conservative Christian ideology I was indoctrinated with is...

“The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” — so states the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment, which allows citizens to possess firearms, has played a vital role in the development of the United States; without it, the United States would likely be a very different place.

In another opinion piece in this week’s Trinitonian, Tiffany Nguyen, William Ballengee and Rachel Lopez claim that online competitive “Esport” games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Super Smash Brothers can be classified as sports because of their of their competitive nature and the amount of time that players spend training. While many games can be classified as sports from this set of criteria, others — even some MMOs — should also be...

Within the last decade, esports have been gaining more mainstream attention as more people become interested in online competitive games, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), League of Legends (LoL) and Super Smash Brothers. Esports have become an unstoppable force as the industry continues to grow rapidly and draw more attention.

Halloween is approaching once again, and with it comes the spooky, terrifying dilemma: Should you buy a costume or make your own? For creative types, especially those who own a wide variety of strange clothing already, making your own costume is probably a great, fun idea. However, for everyone else, buying a costume works just fine. Now, it’s almost certainly true that a self-made costume will look better and have the added sheen of originality,...

Running low on funds? Don’t want to use a boring store-bought costume? No worries, there’s a simple solution: this Halloween, make your own costume! DIY (do it yourself) costumes sometimes get a bad rap. They’re too last minute, not as put-together as ones you could purchase in a store or online, etc. But before you go to Party City this year, consider these reasons why getting creative is the right move for your Halloween looks....
