This week in Trinity: celebrating women to beat the post-Reading Week blues

If you have spent the last few days cramming in those essays you swore you’d do over Reading Week or, like many, have been desperately trying to get back to Dublin, there are a range of events on this week to help you unwind. It’s also International Women’s Week and there are events for all […]

At PolSoc, nothing is off the table

Topics like Brexit, Palestine, and the Eighth Amendment can cause awkward silences at some dinner tables, but at Trinity Politics Society (PolSoc), these are mere conversation starters.

To be more specific: spinal pain.   Take an “S” shaped spine, a few major operations, a couple of footlong […]

Chatting with Niteline

Niteline is a well-known name on campus. Largely due to its ubiquitous posters in seemingly every bathroom in Trinity, most of us are aware the organisation exists. However, for students who have not used the service themselves, Niteline is also something of a mystery. To shed light on the service and the benefits it provides […]
