Last-minute costumes

As Halloween approaches, many Trinity students are finding themselves without a spooky costume. We procrastinators have put off finding a costume for so long that now we find ourselves scrambling to throw something together at the last minute, and in my case I already know it won’t come together as well as I want it to. Even worse, many people will panic and lose their inspiration when they realize that Halloween is upon them and they no longer have time to put off finding a costume. To help solve this problem, here are a few easy ideas for last-minute...

Getting it together after break

By the time this paper reaches the stands, each student on Trinity’s campus will have successfully made it through their first week after spring break.

The more things seem to change…

It seems like just a few weeks ago we were cramming for finals, saying goodbye to friends and making sure any damages in our rooms were hidden before our resident mentors made one final pass through the building. If we were successful, the residence halls still look the same. The buildings are still standing, parking is still impossible and, for the most part, everything is right where we left it. But let’s not forget everything that changed while we were gone. In June, 49 innocent people in Orlando were enjoying freedom and a sense of pride that would have...
