Back to the 80s, Freshers’ style

As an institution over 400 years old, Trinity has seen seas of freshers walk through its gates over the decades, each one experiencing their own Freshers’ Week for the first time.   We pride ourselves on our traditions and history, so it seems fitting to glimpse into the recent past of 1981 and ask graduates […]

The other side of Freshers’ Week

Freshers’ Week is billed as being the best week of a new student’s life; a time to reinvent yourself, buy a crumpled denim jacket and pretend you enjoy cans of Prazsky at the Pav – but what happens when the expectations don’t live up to what can be an overwhelming, nerve-wracking time?   As a lot […]

Far from Front Square: a Freshers Week abroad

For the majority of returning students, Freshers’ Week is a week of stability.

Freshers’ Diary: Tuesday

Orla Murnaghan, Junior Freshman Law and Politics Freshers’ Week was in full swing on Tuesday as I arrived in the Front Square at noon.
