Trinity College

by

Trinity College is about to break almost 400 years of academic tradition by introducing Christmas exams for students for the first time. 

The college is also set to introduce an earlier start to the academic year.

The changes are set to been implemented by the academic year 2018/2019. 

A survey run by the TCD Students’ Union in 2010 found that 90 per cent of students were in favour of a move, according to TCD's student paper.

Some members of the academic staff are against the move, citing the fact that it would "undermine research and require correcting two sets of exams," according to the Irish Times.

However, the vast majority of students feel that having two sets of exams is fairer to the students and would alleviate the pressure of a single exam season.

The Barrys Vs Lyons tea debate has been ongoing for YEARS now.

Some people side with the warmth and comfort of Barrys and others opt for the rich and relaxing taste of Lyons.

It's divided the country, but Trinity College has found a way to settle that debate with one of the most brilliant ideas ever.

Healthy Trinity is a new initiative the college has kicked off in order for their students to live a more balanced lifestyle. One task they want to conquer is no-smoking areas, so in certain areas around the campus, they've introduced Ballot Bins.

These bins ask students about various topics and they then throw their cigarette butts into whichever side of the bin they agree with.

They mostly stick to college issues, but their latest question took on the Barrys vs Lyons tea debate, and the outcome is pretty close!

We think it's neck and neck here! What would you choose?

It's been five-and-a-half months since six Irish students lost their lives in the Berkeley balcony collapse.

Survivor Clodagh Cogley was one of seven friends seriously injured in the accident, but last night her family shared an extremely positive update about her health.

"Clodagh has now returned to university in Dublin," the post on the 21-year-old's GoFundMe page read.

"She resumed her studies initially while continuing to receive in-patient rehab hospital treatment.

"We're pleased to tell you that she's also now moved back into her family home."

Clodagh, who is a Psychology student at Trinity College Dublin, suffered a broken spine, broken knee and shoulder, two collapsed lungs, and five broken ribs in the fall.

"Solutions to adapt the family house are nearly completed so that she may resume a normal life," the post continued.

Clodagh herself posted to Facebook shortly after her accident to let friends, family and the public know how she was getting on.

"[T]he chances of me using my legs again are pretty bleak… Not the best odds but I'm moving to a great rehabilitation centre here in San Francisco for two months," she wrote.

"Who knows maybe legs have been holding me back all these years and I'll realise my talent for wheelchair basketball."

Since the accident, over €100,000 has been raised in Clodagh's honour to cover medical funds and the adaptation of her family home for wheelchair use.

Eoghan Culligan, Nick Schuster, Lorcán Miller, Eimear Walsh, Ashley Donohoe and Olivia Burke were all killed in the tragedy, which saw the balcony they were standing on in a Berkeley student apartment collapse.

The group had been celebrating the 21st birthday of Aoife Beary, one of the seven injured.
