Afrobana 2014: A journey of joy, love, and respect

(Photos follow the article) Afrobana is an annual cultural showcase organized by the Trent African Caribbean Student Association (TACSU). This year it was titled Hakuna Matata and took place downtown at Showplace. Each year the show tells a story. This year it was based on the story line of a married couple indulging in their […]

Student Centre Update

The Student Centre project is poised to move forward, just not quite yet. In efforts to ensure the building is all that it can possibly be, the Trent Central Student Association (TCSA) is working with the Board of Governors in hopes of ensuring the building is owned, in part, by the university, and thus funded […]

Trent, Engage!

Dear Trent, The momentum for change at Trent has begun and it isn’t going to stop or reverse itself. Change is coming whether we want it or not. Many of you will have heard the term “SMA” floating around in the past few months. It stands for “Strategic Mandate Agreement,” and versions of it have […]

Teas to Calm You Down

  Hello November! Now that this month is well underway (shh, don’t tell me how close we are to the end, I’ve far too much left to do before it’s done!), I am feeling stressed to the max. There are deadlines every which way that I turn, and I hear I’m not the only one […]

TEA! TEA! TEA!

The Glow by David’s Tea This tea is advertised as a glow-giving boost for your skin. I haven’t been drinking it long enough to say “I got this gorgeous skin by drinking the glow” in any definitive way, but I do know that it’s so delicious I could glow while drinking it. Flavoured with cinnamon […]

Teas to the Rescue

It’s a stressful time to be a student. Regardless of what discipline you study, there are midterms, projects, presentations, and papers to be completed. Tea sits at the center of many social traditions. So, perhaps you could invite a friend to have tea with you, and de-stress through a little human contact. If, however, your […]

Teas The Season

Crave flavor? Need Caffeine? You May be a Tea Drinker From a long and varied history in many cultures and traditions, to becoming itself a subculture on the consumer market today, there’s much that can be said about tea.  Having acquired so many teas that I have to keep a written “tea menu” for guests, […]

In case you didn’t hear about the Saint Mary’s Fiasco…

Trigger warning: rape, sexual assualt In the past few weeks, Canadian media has played a significant role in publicizing a story about an Instagram video where frosh week leaders at Saint Mary’s University (SMU) in Nova Scotia chanted an offensive cheer promoting non-consensual sex: “SMU boys we like them YOUNG. Y is for Your Sister, […]

Trent Athletics Department Cuts Swimming and Fencing Varsity Teams

After the results of an external review this past spring, the Trent Athletics Department implemented some recommendations, such as the removal of the fencing and swimming varsity teams and the addition of women’s lacrosse and golf as self-funded programs. In a press release it was stated that the removal of the swimming and fencing teams […]

Review: Caitlin Moran’s “How to Be A Woman”

I entered Chapters looking, as you might guess, for something to read. I was hoping to find something light-hearted. I hoped to find something witty, not heavily academic, but still able to add to me as a person in the way only a good book can. It was in this state of mind that I […]
