Remember the “official class of 20_ _” facebook group where SUPER EXCITED incoming freshmen wrote things that, most often, caused you to face-palm? If your memory is a bit clouded, you’re in luck. A new website called accepted2017.com has compiled all the ridiculous facebook posts of over-eager college newbies from all over the country. The [...]
This year has not been great for Trinity’s reputation, and it’s been even worse for the leadership’s. Earlier today, President Jimmy Jones sent out a campus-wide email about his plans to “step down” early, much to the surprise of students.

While most Bantams have kissed their social lives goodbye and begun the search for a finals hideaway spot, the Trinity Women’s Lacrosse team still has plenty of reason to celebrate.

Those in bed nursing hangovers from Black Bear Thursday rejoiced with a drink as emails from professors cancelling class came pouring in. As the first flurries touched down on the Long Walk, makeshift sleds were created, creative outerwear inspired by the [...]
As of February 1st, Amherst College stepped up its green game and turned over to single-stream recycling, joining its fellow ‘Cac counterparts at Bowdoin, Hamilton, Trinity and Wesleyan. What is “single stream” recycling anyway? How could throwing a bunch of different materials in the same bin be a better, more sustainable method? When papers, [...]
