Looking back on the Trinity Summer Series: a review from the Pav

This year saw the introduction of the Trinity Summers Series, a set of outdoor concerts  in College Park over the course of a week in July.  In a bid to earn more funding for the “academic needs of the University”, the College partnered with MCD Productions, the concert promotion firm, to host six concerts on […]

From Halls to houses

This past academic year, I was fortunate enough to live in Trinity Hall in Rathmines. This coming autumn I will be living in a house with four of my friends. The biggest differences: rent, electricity, gas, and the oh-so-precious wifi. I am really looking forward to the exciting changes that come with living independently, but […]

The ultimate Irish road trip

It happens to the best of us: you spend those long months of exam revision thinking about how you’re going to spend your summer. You and your friends decide that you’ll visit all the places that you’ve always wanted to go. Yet when the summer does come, the days start to slip away, it’s September […]

No money, no problem

Summer can be tough on your bank account at times; whilst the majority of people who stay in Ireland for summer are working to save money, it’s general knowledge that the day after payday can be a harrowing experience. You try to justify your outrageous spending habits to yourself:  last night was your only night out […]

Alternative ways to get to Electric Picnic

But fear not, for, in the words of my guidance counsellor looking at my CAO application, there’s always another way in. Whether you’re in want […]

A letter to… My college friends

Dear Dublin City and Friends,      As I sit at home in 34° Celsius heat, with haze and humidity rolling over the mountains of Northern New Jersey, a piece of me wishes to be stuck inside on a rainy, grey, and blustery Dublin day. Mostly because a) sweating really doesn’t suit me, and b) […]

My experience as… an Erasmus student

Upon receiving my Leaving Cert results, I spent some time reflecting on the precariousness of what constitutes a “success” in these exams. I eventually came to the conclusion that the success I achieved in my results rested entirely on the fulfillment of certain conditions, both long-term and short. Much like that gloriously recurring biology experiment […]

The society without a home: DU Dance

After successfully hosting the dance intervarsity competition last year,  Dublin University Dance Society set out from Michaelmas to grow and build upon this success, both as a society generally and competitively at the annual intervarsity. However the year got off to an unexpected, rocky start for the society. With the renovation of Regent House and […]

How the sunshine might make me fail my exams

It’s 2pm on a Wednesday afternoon. You’re struggling through assignments, pondering the revision you ought to have started, or really any sort of work that a responsible college student would be doing at this time of year. Your phone lights up as a message appears in the group chat: “Pav, anyone?” About time. Like a […]
