    I appreciate your feedback wholeheartedly, though I must ascertain that your comments regarding certain specific matters of my personal life are false and untrue. The writing that I do for the Trinitonian is meant to be informative but also light and humorous. I joke often and use use sarcasm rampantly. I do agree that there could have been a deeper analysis of places to visit within walking distance of Trinity, but I was working with a deadline as well as many other obligations to this campus – for as you probably do not know, I don’t spend my time getting drunk for free at frat parties. Rather, I’m highly involved with multiple different organizations on campus including Student Ambassadors, Alpha Chi Lambda and Loon-E Crew – all three of which I hold leadership positions . As a writer, I can only improve as I continue and I think it’s quite offensive to insist that I no longer write for the Trinitonian merely because my writing style does not suite you. I apologize for your distaste with the article and I hope I can change your perspective of me as a writer in the future.

    Was this article intended to be a joke? If so, it was published in the wrong section. I agree with “Jane Doe;” this article is just disappointing. Trinity University sits in the heart of America’s 7th largest city. A city with a rich culture that is truly unique. In the Midtown area surrounding Trinity there are countless attractions, and yet Campolo highlighted almost none of them. Walk two feet off Trinity’s Campus and you’re in one of America’s most beautiful historic neighborhoods: Monte Vista. Walking down any one of its streets is an architecture tour! The Botanical Gardens aren’t far either, nor the Peal Brewery and the new Museum Reach of the Riverwalk. You could eat at the Olmos Pharmacy, or catch some live music and have a beer there on a Friday night. You could eat at Taco Taco, which Bon Apetit magazine has named America’s best taco. You could have a handmade croissant at Bistro Bakery on Olmos, or dig through troves of mid-century modern furniture and artifacts at Mod Modern on Broadway, but did Campolo mention any of these places? No. It is truly a shame that so few Trinity students actually experience San Antonio for the great city that it is, but Campolo’s article this week revealed that all she really wants to do is get drunk for free at frat parties. Le sigh.

    Why would someone who hates walking and expending energy be chosen to write about attractions within walking distance of Trinity? I mean she herself even notes that Benjamin Conway would have been a better candidate to write this article… so why didn’t he? On top of that, the suggestions she lists won’t really attract students to visit them. I mean the Kiddie Park… really?? Do you expect me to believe Ms. Campolo has ever stepped foot inside of it? And as she even says, the Witte Museum is “closer to biking or horseback riding distance” from Trinity… okay so then why is it on this list? The only attraction here that holds any merit to me is the San Antonio Zoo. That, I could get behind. Brackenridge Park, too. Besides for those, Ms. Campolo’s article really emphasizes how segregated Trinity students are from the San Antonio community. What is even more depressing to me is that Ms. Campolo grew up in San Antonio (at least that’s what her Facebook page says). Is she really so sheltered and stupid that she doesn’t know of any other places to visit around campus besides the five listed ones? Honestly, if I were a prospective student and I read Ms. Campolo’s article I would definitely cross Trinity University off of the list of schools I want to attend. Let me conclude by saying how embarrassed I become whenever I read one of Ms. Campolo’s articles. She thinks she’s really cool and that she has so much advice to give to everybody. Um, not really. Hearing her sputter on about Trinity frat parties and her sex music list (which wasn’t even her idea), really proves to me that The Trinitonian must not have anything better to print. And if she must write for this publication, please make sure she sticks to topics, which she actually is familiar with.

      This. The earlier “Campus Prowler” article was the biggest waste of space I’ve ever seen in this publication. Trinitonian: your articles are usually on point, informative, and, at the least, expose the stupidity of students/administration. Let’s keep moving in a positive direction and not let Krista write any more unnecessary personal articles about inconsequential stuff.
