A crash course to studying General Science in Trinity

Last September, the Junior Freshman students of 2016/17 waited in anticipation for their first experience of third level education to begin.

Carnivlaw, candy floss and carousels of dancing

Carnivlaw, the second Ents night of Freshers’ Week, drew large crowds and for good reason. Hundreds of students descended upon Camden Street’s Opium Rooms, and they were not disappointed.
