The misadventures of first-time attendees of Trinity Ball

It is no mean feat for every stereotype of middle-class students to be fulfilled in one night. Love it or hate it, this private black-tie event held on campus is part and parcel of the spirit of Trinity.   Criticism tends to centre on the lineup, and then on the price. Granted, it’s hard to […]

Cashing in on campus: Student jobs

For those students who wish to work alongside their studies, Trinity offers a select number of  jobs on campus throughout the academic year, most of which are tailored to the needs of students.

A place to call our own

The Need for a Student Centre   “As the college grows, the consequences of not having a student centre, or even simply a seating space for students, becomes increasingly evident.”   Though Trinity is lucky to have a leafy and historic campus, attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists each year, there is a distinct lack […]

Embracing brunch

  Brunch is a favourite with both yummy mummys and hungover students alike. Some might view brunch as a classy affair, where one is well-presented and drinking mimosas. Students might be more accustomed to enjoying a good brunch after a heavier night while steering clear of further alcohol.   Personally, I think an appropriate brunch […]

The Glass Wall in Trinity

An engaging installation popped up early this afternoon near the cricket pitch on College’s campus.

Trinity Life decided to investigate […]

Student-run club nights are a particular favourite of Trinity students, with nights both run by and targeted at Trinity students packing big venues to their capacity. It is not easy to gather this kind of support and successfully an independent club night, but student-run events such as BoraBora, the Midnight Disco and Wrekt have garnered […]

On target: Archery Soc

For those of you that don’t know, Trinity has its very own Archery Society, conjuring up images of a Hunger Games-esque training camp. However Archery Soc doesn’t pit students against one another in life or death situations to make you quiver. With an active social side as well as coached classes and tournaments, Archery Soc […]
