Editorial: Proof of success

The Trinitonian would like to formally and warmly welcome all alumni back to their true home, Hogwarts Trinity. Alumni are cool, and weekends are cool. That makes Alumni Weekend the best. The following is a quick look at what makes this weekend so spectacular.

Alumni are proof that you will not starve to death after graduation. In this issue we profile several alumni who are killing it in that big, bad, beautiful, terrifying and terrific real world. Check out the Campus Pulse section for an update on alumna Kendra Doshier’s now fully funded web series. Flip through the pages of Opinion for columns by alumni like Rick Hill, the vice president of marketing for the Valero Alamo Bowl and former undercover baseball reporter for the Trinitonian. If none of that catches your interest, take a look at the Sports section. Reporter Elif Yucel talks to several Trinity coaches who also happen to be Trinity alumni. If you are hard-hearted to the point that absolutely none of that interests you, then check out Page 4 for an update on everyone’s favorite furry alum, Jurgens. She even wrote it herself! Basically, this week’s Trinitonian is bursting with proof that your Trinity education will serve you well.

For any alumni who might be reading the Trinitonian this weekend, we encourage you to scour the pages of our publication with equal furor. In this week’s Trinitonian, you can learn about two new clubs on campus-one that encourages piece of mind among students, and another that allows them to bond over a love of League of Legends. You can read through the Sports section and learn about our top rated soccer and volleyball teams. See A&E if you’ve ever wondered whether or not “The Legend of Korra” could end a friendship. The current students of Trinity are still blazing trails.

If none of this convinces you that this is one of the best weekends of fall semester, this simple fact certainly will: Alumni Weekend is chock-full of departmental open houses. Open houses are chock-full of free food. Anyone can attend open houses. Check one out (ours is today at 4 p.m. in the Campus Publications suite in the basement of CCI), mingle with alum, make connections and eat free food. Seriously, alumni will always prevent death by starvation.
