Avoiding the FOMO on campus

Too often, the fear of missing out (FOMO) is caricatured as le Mal du Siècle (the evil of the century) of the supposedly shallowest generation ever: ours. In the early 19th century, European students were disillusioned and melancholic because, being born too late, they had missed the chance to take part in the French Revolution […]

Hist honorary members debate Foot’s trolley problem

Dani Reynolds once stated that “intellectuals debate and idiots just argue.” What occurred in the GMB yesterday evening under the seasoned banner of the Hist, as honorary members revisited their old stomping ground, was undoubtedly the product of the former.   Although the chamber debate is a staple in the weekly calendar of one of […]

How to support a friend

Mental health is inarguably one of the greatest struggles of our generation. It can be particularly difficult when you know a friend is going through a tough patch. Should you ask them about their problems? Where do the boundaries lie between friendship and invading one’s personal privacy? What can you do for someone? These are […]

This week in Trinity: all about self love

As the last remains of snow melts off campus and Dublin Bus finally restarts all of its routes, we welcome in another week in college. At this point, the wild rush of assignments has hit; the stress has set in. But fear not, we have another exciting, fun-filled week coming up in Trinity to distract […]
